Oh Honey Sweet Bee BBQ Sauce – FULL SIZE! Value $7

I haven’t tried it yet – but it looks delish! I was very happy to see this BBQ sauce has a short ingredient list and is gluten free!

Willow Tree Minerals White Peach Natural Lip Gloss – FULL SIZE! Value $2.95

Love the short ingredient list: Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Almond Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Natural Flavor. 

Bonnie Body Milk – 1 oz Value $2

I’ve never used a spray lotion before – and I like it! This formula is very lightweight and the scent is light and clean.

CandieFactory Miniature Molds – Value $5

Confession: I typically look at products in a box before reading the card that comes with the box. Needless to say, when I saw these I had no idea what they were! Turns out they are little molds for candy or craft projects. Not sure I’ll use these – very cute though.

Verdict: For $20 I received about $17 worth of product. I would have loved to receive over $20 worth of product, but I’m still pleased with the box as I will use 3 out of the 4 items, and all of the items were new to me. I think the La Bella Box subscription is really about discovering great new products, and they definitely delivered on that front!

  1. Thanks for the review on this box. I had seen some of their small photos, and was a bit perplexed by the cooking ingredients ( not prepared foods) alongside skin care items.

    I think the beauty boxes only have hit a serious slump ( with a few exceptions like SS). The preview for BB is dismal, even. Maybe the multi-tasking boxes will prosper during what seems to be a lean beauty product sample time for others.

  2. This is an interesting mix of products! I like it!
