Little Lace Box Subscription Review – February 2015
Little Lace Box is a lifestyle subscription box for women. They’ve been around for a little less than a year so far – but I’ve been really impressed with the quality of their boxes so far.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process postto learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Little Lace Box
The Cost: $39.99 a month (Subscriptions are currently sold out, and they won’t be opening up any more slots for March – I’ll post when subscriptions are open again).
The Products: Fashion and beauty items, with one item highlighting from an up and coming designer
Ships to: US
Delivered via: USPS
Each box comes with a letter detailing the theme of the month and hints at the next month’s box. For February, the theme is “Rainbow Connection.” In the letter they explained that due to issues with winter storms this month and the dockworkers’ strike in California, they weren’t able to get some of the items they originally envisioned with this theme, but they love what they were able to put together for the box.
The theme for the March box will be “Here Comes the Sun,” and it will include items for the “mind, body & soul…even if it’s a cloudy day when your box arrives, the lovelies inside will be just the thing to brighten your day!”
On the flipside of the letter each item included is detailed, complete with retail value.
Whitley Designs Earrings – Value $55
(Subscribers will either receive a pair of Whitley Designs earrings or a Kitsch Dream Bracelet).
I love delicate gold jewelry, so these earrings are perfect for me. And I think I may try to swap for a few of the other earring variations and the Kitsch Dream Bracelet – I’m a big fan of all the LLB jewelry picks this month!
CeeCee & Bee Tub Truffles – Value $22
I could smell these tub “truffles” before I even opened the box!
(Rose, Grapefruit Eucalyptus, Lavender, Rosemary Mint)
These tub truffles are made with all natural ingredients and they recommend crumbling the truffles under running water when filling the tub. I love the fun packaging of these, and I also really like lavender, so these are a good fit for me.
(Subscribers will either receive these Tub Truffles or Beekman 1802 Iridescent Shimmer Bling Bath).
Beekman 1802 Orange Zest Fudge Zest – Value $12
I have to avoid dairy in my diet, so I didn’t get to try this, but I had to open it – it smells heavenly. (Also I think I may need to buy my husband the coffee version of this fudge).
P. Press Papers Pink Arrow Stationery (Set of 8 flat cards and envelopes) – Value $13
I may be in the minority on this, but I’m always happy to get cards in subscription boxes – I love always having the perfect card for any situation, and it is a good reminder to send more paper mail. (I love the striped back on these cards too!)
Dancing Goal Hula Bliss Hand & Body Lotion – 2 oz Value $4.50
This item was included as a bonus extra item. I really like the Dancing Goat brand, so I’m always happy to have more products from their line to sample. The scent isn’t what I would expect from the name “Hula Bliss,” and while I’m not crazy about it, I don’t mind it.
Verdict: My Little Lace Box this month has a value of about $106. (Depending on the variations you get in your box, the value may be a little less). I’m happy with the box and reading the letter I can see how much thought went into the product selection. I know Little Lace Box really wants to highlight small, up-and-coming designers, and I think they did a good job of including a variety of makers in this box that were new to me.
Reading the comments on the past spoiler post, I know this box isn’t for everyone, but it suits me well. The value isn’t as high as some of the previous boxes, but I think it is still good for a $40 box.
This box to me compared to the January box, reminds me of the November box compared to the December box. All boxes were really well-curated in my opinion, but from a quantity of items perspective, they don’t match up, and if you subscribed based on the previous month, I could see how the next month might not meet your expectations.
What do you think of Little Lace Box? Any guesses on what will be in the “Here Comes the Sun” March box?
