Note from Liz: Thanks to tons of reader requests, and a strong commitment to customer care, we are reviewing Little Lace Box again in 2016!
Little Lace Box is a bi-monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each box is curated around a specific theme. (FYI – they also have another bi-monthly subscription called “Serendipity” that does not have themes, and it is sent out on the off months of LLB. So, if you subscribed to both, you would get LLB and Serendipity on alternating months.)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a letter detailing the theme of that box. This box the theme revolves around “Good Morning, Sunshine!”
This month is also their 2-year anniversary, and the roll-out of what they’re calling “LLB 2.0,” which is basically just the implementation of more personalized and individualized boxes for subscribers based on their style profiles. I think that’s fantastic – the goal for profiles like this is definitely to make sure each subscriber gets variations they’re happy with as well as items they specifically like. This month they included monogrammed items for each subscriber!
I liked how they said that by the August 1st deadline, only about a third of subscribers had filled out the online style profile, but they went ahead with monogramming things anyway since they can have a good shot and ensuring the letter subscribers would like based on their names.
If you haven’t filled out your style profile, go do so now! Just go to their website and click “style profile” at the top to get started.
The rest of the info card has the list of items and details and values of each one. The blurbs about each item are pretty cute/funny, so you should be sure to read them!
Gold Decorative Bath Bowl – value: $18.99
Subscribers received one of four different designs (It looks like they’re all very similar except for the pattern of the gold). This little bowl is included to hold little things like bobby pins or cotton balls, etc. Just as an extra touch to glam up your bathroom while still being utilitarian.
Haley Sadlo Kettle Cup Collection – value: $14.99
Subscribers also received one of four styles of these mugs. Mine says “good morning, gorgeous.” This mug is a nice large, stout shape which is fun (I love wide, short mugs because they provide maximum surface area for my whip cream and toppings – treat yourself!).
Here’s a better shot of the bowl – I think it’s very feminine, modern, and pretty.
Primal Kitchen Dark Chocolate Almond Bar – value: $2.99
These bars are made with grass-fed collagen, protein, and potassium and are soy-free, dairy-free, gluten free, and paleo! It tastes pretty good! It was a little squished in transit but that didn’t stop it from being a yummy snack.
Delray Beach Luxury Shower Gel – value: $7.99
What box themed around pampering yourself would be complete without a nice body wash? This shower gel is made with natural oils that hydrate the skin and has a fresh, neutral scent.
Contour/Blush/Highlighter Cosmetic Brush – value: $19.99
This brush is great! It’s a medium size brush with a bit of an angle, which is perfect for having a little more precision. I currently use an angled brush for my blush every day. The bristles are actually real brown goat hair so they’re very soft and pick up pigment very well.
Professional Salon Quality Wood Paddle Brush – value: $18.99
This may be my favorite item in the box, because I was just thinking that I need to get a new hairbrush! This one is nice and big, and I love that I got the paddle version; some subscribers got an oval brush. This brush is really nice quality and I’m really happy with it.
Boca Terry Monogrammed Face/Hand Towel in Ecru – value: $9.99
Boca Terry Monogrammed Spa Wrap in Ecru – value: $25.99
These items are the hero products of the month. The monograms are pretty, though I wish I received the white version instead of the Ecru, but hey, maybe these will give me more grace about looking dingy or accidentally having makeup on them. Do you think the read thread for the letters will bleed into the lighter fabric at all? I’ve never owned anything embroidered/monogrammed. Also, a downside I can think of for sending out monogrammed things, though, is that they’ll be harder to swap or gift if the specific monogrammed item isn’t your taste or something you’ll use.
Regardless, the quality of these are fantastic. In their info booklet, LLB says that Boca Terry makes these for “the Ritziest hotels and resorts in the world,” but they can’t say who. However, considering the word “Ritz” is bold, I’m assuming there’s our answer. Cheeky, LLB.
More pics of each below.
This hand towel is plush and soft and it’s a nice size, too!
This spa wrap is a big size so it’s a little hard to show, but it has an elastic top, and the fabric has a wrap front, plus a pocket! The fabric is light and soft, and it seems perfect for getting ready in the morning! I’m excited about this.
Verdict: This was a really great Little Lace Box! I wasn’t expecting spa/pamper stuff from the “good morning” theme spoiler, but a box full of things to help mornings and getting ready feel more spa-like is a great idea. Aside from the hairbrush (which I needed!) I don’t think I’d really have bought these items for myself so it’s nice to feel like someone else picked out some items for me to treat myself with. The value adds up to $120 which is great – twice the box’s cost!
