Little Lace Box Subscription Review – April 2016
Little Lace Box is a bi-monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each box is curated around a specific theme. (FYI – they also have another bi-monthly subscription called “Serendipity” that does not have themes, and it is sent out on the off months of LLB. So, if you subscribed to both, you would get LLB and Serendipity on alternating months.)
FYI – if you aren’t familiar with this subscription, make sure to check out our LLB reviews and comments on those reviews.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a letter detailing the theme of that box. This box the theme revolves around New York.
The inside of the info card has the list of items and details and values of each one. The blurbs about each item are pretty cute/funny.
And here’s the back page of the info card. Along with the blurbs about the last couple items, they talk about the theme for June – “heavenly day!”
Rifle Paper Co Mother Daughter Mother’s Day Card – value: $4.50
I know I’m not alone in the subscriber world in adoring anything Rifle Paper Co. Their designs are always so pretty. I think this card is great!
Knot & Bow Party Confetti Packet – value: $4.50
This “single-serve” packet of confetti is cute – I’m not 100% sure what I will use it for yet, but they suggest tucking it into cards that you mail or tossing it on table tops the next time you host a party or get-together.
Stern Design Works Mini Brass Lead & Puddle Ring – value: $28
This item actually isn’t in the box because they worked it out with Stern Designs to have subscribers receive a code in an email to order their ring for free! This way it can be sized exactly how each subscriber wants it. I love this! You should receive your code within 48 hours of getting your box – if you don’t, be sure to contact customer service right away! (FYI code expires on June 19th, 2016.)
It’s nice to have an eco-friendly, 100% cotton laundry bag to travel with, in your suitcase or gym bag! This design is being exclusively released via Little Lace Box this month. I like this, but they say that, because it’s made with natural fibers, washing it isn’t really recommended. They suggest spot treating. However, it’s a bag made to put dirty, gross clothing into. I’m going to need to wash it. Ideally, I’d just toss it in with the dirty laundry I use it to carry. Because of this, I’m not actually sure I’ll really reach for it. Am I the only one?
Claudia Pearson Tea Towel – value: $16
I received Claudia’s Brooklyn design tea towel forever ago in Hazel Lane, so I’m really happy to have this one to pair with it! I really like the design on this towel, and the color goes well in my kitchen.
Bellapierre Precious 24k Gold Exfoliating Body Scrub – 10.58 oz, value: $80
Subscribers received either this scrub or Bellapierre’s Diamonds Body Butter. I’m glad I got the scrub because I already have so many body butters and lotions! This supposedly has 24k gold in it, but you can’t see it at all in the scrub. It’s possible it’s just a teensy tiny fraction of a gram just to say it has gold in it. That being said, it still feels like a very nice scrub! It smells like a light, lemon-y citrus scent. I may even keep this by my skin as a hand scrub, too.
Beekman 1802 Aloe & Iris Lip Balm – value: $16
Susbcribers received either this scent or the Wondermint scent. This lip balm feels and smells great! I think I would have preferred the wondermint but it’s still great. And besides, I have other mint lip balms – this one is something a little different!
Fat Witch Coupon Code
This coupon code is good for 15% off an online order at Fat Witch – good until May 30th this year.
Here’s a better look at the lip balm.
99 Problems Notepad by LLB – value: $4.99
(Sorry I forgot to snag a pic of this by itself!) This notepad was designed by LLB as an homage to Jay Z, who is from Brooklyn. I can always use more note pads and list pads so this handy for me.
Verdict: I calculated a value of $183.99 for this month’s Little Lace Box! That value is amazing. The items themselves didn’t personally wow me but I do think they are fun, practical, and well-chosen. I love that they’re letting subscribers buy the size of ring that they want! I’m definitely looking forward to June’s box, too.
