Luxor Box Subscription Box Review – July 2016
Luxor Box is a luxe subscription box for women that includes beauty, home, jewelry, accessory items and more.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
I love that all the items come in their own packaging – this makes Luxor Box great for gifting anything you don’t want to keep!

This box comes with individual product info cards for each item included.
Shaffer The Julian Clutch – Retail Value Listed $195
This is an exclusive sized piece made for Luxor Box. (The standard version of this clutch is $198 and measures 12 by 11 inches open. This version measures 8 by 8 inches open. To me, it seems like that would warrant more than a $3 difference in price, but the smaller size is definitely useful and fit my iPhone plus a few essentials like lip balm, blotting sheets, and hand sanitizer.)
Here it is in my hand to give you a better sense of scale:
I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of the leather and craftsmanship of this piece. The size may be smaller than the original, but I feel confident that the quality stacks up evenly.
Here it is open:
And a closer look at the tassels:
The top inch and a half of the inside of the bag is also lined in leather, and the remaining lining is made from an organic cotton:
In general, I would say this is a bold, beautifully-made piece. It may not fit everyone’s style, but I like that they pushed the envelope a bit with this piece.
(And as someone who wears a lot of black, it’s nice to get a small pop of color from an accessory!)
Dartington Crystal Medium Crescent Clock – Value $85
This clock is packaged in a beautiful black box and ready to gift – the clock is even surrounded in satin!
I was initially a little torn on this item. On one hand, it is clearly a well-made, quality piece. On the other hand, it has a “corporate gift” feel to me. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but it just seemed a little out of place to me at first.
Here it is in action on my bookshelf:
I have to say, having it staged with a few other pieces, I like this clock. The transparent crystal is fun to play with and style with other pieces.
(I can’t block the view of my POPSUGAR Missoni candle!) 🙂
Youth Corridor Hydrating Soothing Mask – Value $115
Yes!! I sampled Youth Corridor thanks to the latest Net-A-Porter Beauty Kit and fell in love with their RetinUltimate Transforming Gel. This mask is great as well. It’s a gel you only have to wear for 5 minutes (I love a quick mask) and it left my skin feeling so smooth.
One of these days I’m going to have to break down and spend $$ on Youth Corridor items, but for now I’m so thrilled that I get a full-sized mask in this box!
Another box ready to gift!
Graphic Image Jotter – Retail Value $40
Graphic Image Jotter Card Refill – Retail Value $3.75
Graphic Image Leather Wrap Pen – Retail Value $40
(FYI – today only Graphic Image is having a Christmas in July sale – 50% off everything in their store.)
Here is a look at the jotter. It’s a leather case with an extra pocket for storing a few more notecards, too.
This isn’t something that I think I would regularly use, but it will make a classy gift!
Here is a closer look at the pen.
I don’t own many (any?) classy pens, so this is a nice addition to my desk.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $478. I think that value is great for a luxe box, and Luxor Box seems to do a good job at finding quality brands that subscribers like and sticking with them! I will use or gift everything in this box, and the value is definitely there, but I think the only hesitation I had when I first opened the box is that I really didn’t see a theme connecting the items.
The clutch feels very on trend, whereas the Graphic Image and crystal clock pieces feel very classic. Maybe that’s a good approach, though? Make sure all styles are covered? (And then the mask is just fabulous!)
