Each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month, as well as the bonus gift.

It’s taken me this long to realize the background of the info sheet is the same pattern as the fabric they wrap the candle in! Cool touch.

VELLABOX JUNE 2016 - items 1

These are the candles this month! The candle maker being featured this month is Botany+Wax.

VELLABOX JUNE 2016 - items 2

On the Prairie – 4 oz?, value: $9?

This candle smells exactly like outside. It seriously smells just like fresh cut grass and maybe some wildflowers and it has “a hint of sandalwood and orange for added depth.” It smells great, but I just don’t know if I personally want my house to smell like that. I’m still sitting on how I feel about actually burning this one. The fragrance is spot on, though.

Sugared Grapefruit – 8 oz, value: $18

This candle is amazing! One of my favorites I’ve ever received from VellaBox. It’s a well-balanced and sweet citrusy scent. I love it, and burned it immediately. I also love that it’s in a jar because it’ll store easily but I really hate the rusted cap. I know it’s part of their style and is rustic but I just really don’t like feeling of touching the lid.

Verdict: I really like this month’s featured candles in the June VellaBox! They also include a bonus item each month and this month it was a sample of OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream – sorry I forgot to snap a close-up picture of it by itself. It’s made with good, natural ingredients and is lightweight and smells nice.

The value adds up to $27. I know the value is a little less than the cost of the box, but I do think curation/discovery plays a bit into the value for this sub, so keep that in mind. Also, the fact that you’d have to pay shipping to get the candles straight from the manufacturer helps even out the value in some way, I think. All in all, I’m happy.

What do you think about VellaBox?
