Robb Vices Subscription Box Review + Coupon – August 2017
Robb Vices is “a membership program centered on a monthly delivery of storied treasures.” Each month, they send a collection of curated products and/or experiences.
Subscribers should expect boxes to include “vices” like “exceptional wines and spirits to enjoy, foods to taste, tools, toys, accessories, and gadgets.”
The presentation of this box is amazing. One of the best unboxing experiences I’ve ever had!
Items are packed securely in laser-cut foam.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Now, on to the items!
Dirocco Carbon Fiber Sunglasses – Retail Value $390?
(These glasses were made exclusively for Robb Vices subscribers, so I’m guessing on value based on other Dirocco sunglasses.)
Each frame is handcrafted out of pure titanium and plated with 18-karat white gold with a satin finish. Even the nose pads are special! They are titanium with a laser etched logotype. And the shades are accented with “glacier-style pure carbon fiber side panels.”
I’m all about the aviator look, and I love how these don’t have the typical nose bar. The gunmetal silver coloring is fab, too. All in all, these just look cool!
Here they are on:
(Excuse my end-of-the-day hair!)
And Robb Vices included this coupon code offer to share with a friend:
Use coupon code SUNSHINE to get these sunglasses for free with a 3-month subscription. (Robb Vices OKed us posting this coupon.)
We have quite a few BBQ fans at MSA HQ, so we had a taste test with these sauces!
This is the sauce of the vinegar lover. It’s tangy, slightly peppery, and there is a barely detectable touch of cayenne. (And it isn’t spicy.)
Robb Vices recommends using this on pulled pork sandwiches, or as a dip for fried okra or french fries, or as a dressing for coleslaw. (Lacey recommended using it as a light finishing sauce to brush on grilled chicken, too!)
Lillie’s Q Gold South Carolina Mustard – Value $8
We didn’t read the ingredients before testing this and were confused that it tasted kind of “ketchupy.” Turns out, ketchup is the 4th ingredient. This is mustard and ketchup combined into one tangy, peppery sauce!
It’s a little sweet, and it has lots of noticeable spices, but it isn’t hot spicy.
Robb Vices recommends using this as a glaze for chicken or shrimp. Or this works well with pulled pork, too!
This is the horseradish lover’s mustard! The horseradish provides a bite, and a kick of heat, too. But the heat dissipates quickly.
Robb Vices recommends using this for everything from roast beef to grilled vegetables. Or try adding it to a BBQ sauce.
And Sarah thought it would be great on a Rueben sandwich!
Hello Sunshine Natural Mineral Sunscreen – Value $22
This zinc oxide sunscreen is free of nano particles and provides SPF 30 protection and 80 minutes of water resistance. It’s free of preservatives and fragrance, and my favorite part is the finish. I’m used to most sunscreens having a bit of a shiny finish/feel, but this dries completely matte.
Verdict: While this box has a bit of a summer vibe thanks to the sunshine theme, all the products are useable year round. The sauces and mustard are a nice gourmet addition to our fridge, the sunscreen is always needed, and the sunglasses are just so damn cool! And I don’t normally expect a fashion accessory from Robb Vices, so they were a fun surprise, too!
Value-wise, this box comes in at about $434 – amazing for a $89.95 box!
