WeWood Date Watch – Value $125

Subscribers will receive this in either Beige, Chocolate, Teak or Brown/Army.

This is a very well-made watch, and the wooden band is really cool. It is super big on me though, so I’ll need to remove a few links:

You can buy their Link Removal Tool for $10 if you are in the same boat as me!

I like that Luxor Box usually includes items that come boxed and ready to gift. If you aren’t keeping these for yourself, they would make a perfect hostess/housewarming gift!

Deepa Gurnani Nova Bracelet – Value $45

I was a little surprised to see Deepa Gurnani in this box since Luxor Box has featured pieces from the brand in two limited edition boxes last year, but I really love their items, so I’m not complaining!

Here is the bracelet on:

I love the gunmetal coloring! And here is how it closes in the back:

Sleep ‘N Beauty Silk Pillowcase Standard Size – Value $75

luxor-box-march-2016-pillow-case

This pillow case is made of 100% mulberry silk, and the fabric is natural, undyed, and chemical free. And it feels amazing!

I think this is my favorite item in the box – what a fabulous luxury item to include! (And, yay it is machine washable!)

luxor-box-march-2016-cirocell

Circ-Cell Red Algae Clarifying Masque – Value $70

This brand is new to me, and I love trying out new mud masks, so I put this on immediately after taking the picture! When I first put it on, the formula was really soothing, and I like that it only took 5-10 minutes to dry. Unfortunately, my skin didn’t react too well to the mask. When I removed it my skin was very red underneath and took a while to “calm down.”

Looking at the ingredient list, everything looks fine, so I’m not sure what it is that made my skin react, but I recommend trying this mask on just a patch of your skin before applying it to your entire face if you have sensitive skin.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $353. I think that value is great for a luxe box. My favorite item is the pillow case, but everything is great, and the only thing I won’t use again is the mask.

What do you think of the March 2016 Luxor Box?

  1. Anybody want to buy my watch? I got it in Teak. Nice watch, just not my style and too big for me.

    • How much? 🙂

  2. So the watch was huge on me but my boyfriend liked it so I gave it to him. He knew I was sad about the watch so I come home today and in the mail was a Wewood box with a beautiful Python Wewood with a smaller face to fit me. BEST BOYFRIEND EVER!

  3. If anyone is interested in buying this box I’m wanting to sell mine! It was a nice box, but I’m just not crazy about any of it. I got the watch in teak.

  4. I got the watch in Chocolate. I sent my son-in-law to the website, and told him I was sending him that watch. He loved it! I have therefore further cemented my title as Greatest Mother-In-Law EVER!

  5. Does anyone know if this box is still available, please? I absolutely love it!

    • I would sell my whole box, if you’re interested. I threw out the blue and white confetti but I could repackage everything nicely. I got the chocolate watch. Let me know if you’re interested.

      • Thank you for the offer, but I’m not interested in the chocolate watch – sorry!

  6. I would love to have the silk pillowcase, if anyone wants to swap.

  7. This is my first Luxor box and I decided to purchase because of the watch spoiler. I’ve been wanting a wood watch for several years and just haven’t been able to let myself spend the money so far. I received the Chocolate version and I LOVE it!! Yes it is too large, but most jewelers can remove the links for about $15. No big deal and what I expected. I’ll be swapping the coasters just because they really aren’t my style even though they are gorgeous. Overall I’m extremely happy with this box. Yes, they are all items that I’ve received before but anyone that has been purchasing sub boxes for a couple of years is going to get some repeat items. If you are tired of receiving the same types of items, try a different type of box or take a break. It worked for me 🙂

  8. I read the reviews prior to receiving my box and was not thrilled when I saw what was included. I wanted to wait to actually see the items before I was disappointed. Needless to say, this is my least favorite Luxor Box to date and I have LOVED all of them up until now. The watch is too manly, too big, and not something I would wear. I got it in the Teak, would love to swap, but haven’t done that before, not really sure how to go about it. I’ll see if i can find out how and then I can also list the bracelet and face masque too. The only items I will probably keep are the pillowcase and coasters because I can gift those if I don’t use them. I hope the next Luxor Box is back to what I’ve enjoyed so much in the past!

  9. This isn’t my favorite Luxor box by any means, but the items are still nice if you have a use for them. I got the army/brown watch (which was the one I preferred out of all of the options). However, it’s too manly looking for my taste and the watch face is too big, so I’ll be giving this to my husband. It’s too big for his wrist, though, so we need to figure out how to get it sized. I’m happy about the pillowcase, but like others mentioned – what’s the deal with all the single pillowcases? I would imagine most people buying this box are adults who no longer sleep in twin beds. The coasters are okay. I usually prefer thirsty coasters and am worried these will peel at the seams when they get wet (which happened with the fancy coasters in the conference rooms in my office). I’m hesitant about the mask since I have sensitive skin, so I’ll be doing a test swatch (thanks for the heads-up on the possible skin irritation, Liz!). I do like the Deepa bracelet and think it will be more versatile than my other one since it’s only gunmetal/gray, but I’d like to see some pieces by designers other than Deepa (or Jules Smith!). Overall, Luxor is still one of the best non-beauty sub boxes in my opinion, but this one didn’t blow me away.

  10. My watch is the Beige but I have not been able to see it because I CAN NOT get the box to come apart/open– it’s like it is GLUED together– anyone else have this problem or any suggestions on how to get it to come apart?? 😛

  11. LOVE Luxor boxes! They always stock high quality items. The quality that I would normally buy, but products that I don’t yet know about. This box rocks my socks! First, I just received the exact same silk pillowcase from Little Lace Box, purchased an additional set from them. Now, I have one more in this box to complete the first set. YAY! These are wonderful pillowcases. I would highly recommend washing on delicate and drying on low as not to rip them over time. I don’t know how this brand holds up, but I have an old set from 3 years ago and I’ve had to sew the seams back together several times. They are almost too soft and delicate. These seem more sturdy to me. I received the brown/army watch and I am elated! I told myself I’d be happy no matter which color bc it’s such a cool fun watch. And, I received the color I most wanted. It’s large on my wrist and I wore it like a bracelet today. It’s gorgeous! Certainly it is not designed to match my most conservative of outfits so I am thrilled to have the PS watch to balance it out, plus my own, of course. Great to know about the lavender sensitivity in the facial mask. I will use it on a test spot first. 🙂 Like the bracelet. It’s pretty and a perfect style for summer. Curious to see how the coasters work with a glass that sweats. It says the leather is water treated. I normally use stoneware coasters that absorb water. These are much cooler looking. Can’t wait to try them out. I’m already looking forward to my next Luxor box. This is absolutely one of my favorite sub boxes.

  12. Disappointed with this box. I gave the watch to my husband (which he was psyched about). It’s a little too manly for my taste. The coasters were all scratched except 1. I’m really getting tired of Deepa accessories every month from one box or another. Not my style.
    The pillow case is good bc I already have 1 white satin one from PS so I guess now I have a set? Sort of? I’m excited to try the masque- thanks for the redness warning ladies!
    This is my 2nd box. I loved January! Hopefully the next one will be good or this is getting cancelled. Too much $$ to not love it

  13. My second box and so disappointed! The watch head is huge and hangs over the sides of my wrist and looks stupid. Size wise I could adjust it but the head is still bigger than my wrist. Makes me sad as I was so looking forward to getting the watch. The rest of the box doesn’t make up for it.

  14. I find it so odd that when subscription boxes offer pillowcases they only send 1pc. both Arianne Huffington and was it pop sugar that also only included 1pc. They have to know that the people buying the subscription boxes are adults who probably sleep in a full-size bed or larger and therefore a set would be nice. Here I go once again trying to get an extra pillow case from the swap site just so I can make a set.

    • I guess they think we all sleep in twin beds. lol

    • I sooooo agree with you about the single pillow case. And I have king size pillows so even if they sent 2 I’d still be out of luck, but at least I’d have a nice set for the guest room (lucky lucky guests!!)

      • Anyone else nervous about using their pillow case? I haven’t even takin mine out of the box yet… I’m scared it will rip or somthing it sounds too delicate… I swapped my Watch it’s nice just not my style! I agree I really wish subs would send 2 pillow cases! I’m looking forward to the Summer box!! I think it would be neat if they gave us all a XXL 1951 Clutch in different summer colors!? That would be AMAZING!!! ***Sighs*** ?

  15. I got my box today. I was thinking of going shopping after work but just had to come home right away to get my box! 🙂 I like it so much better than RZ this time. I’m really happy with it. I’m very excited about the watch, but can someone teach me how to open and close it? I’m afraid I’m going to break out. Also, do I need to send it to them to remove the links or can I take it to a jeweler?

    I like the bracelet, but I find those strings annoying against my skin. I haven’t decided yet. Overall I think it’s a good box, mostly because unlike the other boxes, they’re including items that aren’t made for them. I hate exclusives!

    • Never mind! I went to their site and they actually have really helpful videos teaching you how to use their watches. And it says you can just go to any jeweler to adjust it. I imagine that’ll be cheaper than sending it into them…

      Overall, really happy with this one.

  16. I just received my box and the bracelet is missing…boo! It’s not my style but I would like to at lease list it for swaps. I’ve emailed Luxor so we shall see how that goes…

    • Ugh..that has happened to me once with FFF but they quickly fixed it..I would imagine Luxor will too. And don’t opt out on the bracelet just yet, I didn’t think I would like it either but it’s a keeper after I got it:)

  17. It almost seems like there’s a company that just offers products to box subscriptions. All the boxes seem to have the same brands and similar variations of the same items

  18. Got my box today and I got the chocolate watch. I figured I would swap it easily for another color but it seems most of the listings that have a definite color listed are also the chocolate version..lol..they must have had more of that color than any other it seems.

    • That’s the color I got too and it seems a little too masculine for me. I hope they don’t keep doing these variations with the hero item. And I like the bracelet, but I would like a break from Deepa Gurnani.

  19. Too bad Rachael Zoe doesn’t include jewelry so similar in style in her boxes. I would love to receive another Miansai bracelet. The deepa bracelets are too similar and I am quite surprised that they included that bracelet in this box – strange.

  20. Not my favorite box from them but still a lot of nice items. Don’t know if I will swap anything yet. Luzon is one of those boxes where I will swap something and then decide I really should have kept the item. Everything does look high quality.

  21. The bracelet is my favorite item! I may look for it on swaps.

  22. I ordered two of these boxes. So I plan to list at least one of each item including the watch once I receive my boxes. 🙂

  23. Really like everything in this one — looking forward to getting mine.

  24. I am going to be out of town when mine arrives.. I am glad to see it on here! I missed out on the silk pillowcase from Popsugar. I was looking forward to the unique watch… but I have trouble with the Popsugar watch being big on me. This watch looks to be wwaaayyyy bigger than the Popsugar’s watch…
    And @ KERRY PETERS
    You said that the company is removing the links for you? How much do they charge for doing this?
    (Thanks in advance!)

    • I didn’t have to pay but I bought a watch directly from them after seeing the sneak peek. I believe it’s 12-20 plus shipping. The tool is tricky to use.

  25. I haven’t worn a watch regularly in years but I love this one! Definitely going to try to swap for it.

    • I ordered (2) boxes, so I’ll be listing a watch and many of the other items once I receive my boxes.

  26. Does anyone know the story behind Luxor Box? Like, who the curators, founders are? It might be me and it probably is.. But, I’ve always felt like there’s something shady about Luxor.. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something “off”.. It’s probably just me.? LOL! All in all, it seems like a decent box. One that kinda has me interested. I was turned off by the “1951 clutch-gate”. But, this has a Popsugar feel to it, my FAVE! I’m going to keep watching..? ??

    • Ooooh, what was “1951 clutch-gate”? I’m confused and have no idea?

    • This box seems emulate items from other box, PopSugar, Oui Please, to name a few.

    • you’re hilarious 🙂 i think they just pay attention to the other boxes. cute monkey icons.

  27. MEH. I will only keep the watch and bracelet. I’ve listed everything else for swap

  28. i think this looks like a great box. i love the watch and the deepa bracelet, but i think the braclet is a bit inflated. i didnt buy the box because its over my limit, but may try to swap for the braclet.

  29. I have to say I’m very disappointed and was so looking forward to this box. Everything is similar to products we have received previously (primarily from PSMH) … the bracelet, the coasters, the pillowcase, and this month a watch. Hoping for more creativity next box.

    • Yeah, but for people who have no idea what PS is or don’t subscribe, it is more creative. It’s just not for you.

  30. Be very careful removing links as putting them back together you can crack the link. I have the watch and love it. The company is removing links for me from my original watch.

  31. Ohhh, how I wish I could have purchased this box for myself! That watch is bananas and maybe, just MAYBE, I can someone to swap one with me. ? I’ll need to find more items to add. I just recently swapped of my more ‘luxe’ items. The bracelet is GORGEOUS (I love anything from that company!) and I’m crushing on the pillow case. I’ve never had the pleasure of using a silk pillow case but I hear amazing things! Can anyone give me a review that’s actually USED one? Does it really make a difference?

    • I have been using this pillowcase for a couple of weeks now and really like it. I have noticed that I am not waking up with face creases anymore and is easier on your hair. So far I am pleased and happy to be getting another one.

      • I’ve been using silk pillowcases for years; I’m 26 and don’t have any wrinkles yet, but I love how my hair looks in the morning! you can literally keep a nice blowout for days.

        • Now I really want to try one. I may look for one my next trip out. I’m sure they sell them at several dept. stores. We use king size pillows, so I hope they make them in that size! Does the fabric stay cool?

    • YESSS! I was so excited to see the silk pillowcase. I subscribe to Little Lace Box and received the exact same one in my box, then I purchased two more from their shop. Now, I have 2 sets. What a great surprise! I have very high cotton, well-worn sheets and pillowcases that even as soft and wonderful as they are don’t hold a candle to the silk. My face glides over the silk and it doesn’t crease my skin or make my hair weird from sleeping. I find it also to keep my face and head cooler than cotton. That’s my two cents.

  32. Omg, I wasn’t expecting a Luxor review so soon!!

    I like this box quite a bit, but I’m not over the moon about it (like I was for January’s.)

    The only watch color I hope I don’t get is the Beige, since it’s too close to the color of the watch from PSMH this month. (Of course, its being wood keeps it different, but still.)

    I really like the leather coasters! But we have a set of stone Game of Thrones coasters that we always use.

    I like the bracelet! But I have the other Luxor-sourced Deepa Gurnani bracelet and rarely wear it, just because it tends to not go with my outfits.

    I love clarifying masks! I just hope my skin reacts better to it than yours did!

    I never got around to trying the silk pillow from PSMH, even though I’m intrigued by the idea. Maybe I’ll use this one instead of swapping it.

  33. hoping to swap for the watch, pillowcase, and maybe bracelet! i have the baggu weekender if anyone is interested in swapping!

  34. Just got my 1st luxor petite box and I must say I’m a little disappointed? the braclet, which don’t get me wrong, it’s nice… And coasters… Coasters, really? I was rummaging through the box throwing the confetti everywhere lookin for the other item! There was no other item…

  35. I just love that watch!
    I would never spend $75 on 1 pillowcase – but I’d sure love to get one in a subscription box 🙂 – but I wish they would send out king size pillow cases instead of standard.

  36. This is my first Luxor box and I’m sad to say I’m not really excited about anything in it. To the swap site!

  37. My box should be here tomorrow and can hardly wait. Just bought this pillowcase from Little Lace Box and was going to get another one so this item alone makes the box for me. Anxious to see the watch in person and what color. Luxor always does such a nice job and one of my favorite subscriptions.

  38. is it only 1 pillow case or a set?

    • Only 1.

  39. The only thing I will give away is the clay masque, but other than that good box. I love the watch. Glad to have another silk pillowcase and I like the bracelet so I hope it looks as good in person.

    • Oh Liz,
      I wanted to add the mask has lavender oil in it and it can cause a reaction in some people. I don’t know if that’s what happened to you. My friend used to use a product that had it and one day it just started causing redness and irritation like an allergic reaction.

      • Thanks for the info – that might be it! The redness is 95% gone now at least! 🙂

      • I had a reaction to it as well. Makes me sad because it smelled so good and felt good until i took it off! The redness did not last long for me though, either. Thank goodness!

  40. Great box, can’t wait to get mine!
