Cabernet Sauvignon Soy Candle-Travel Tin – Value $6.00
This hand-poured soy candle smells of berries and plums. There’s a faint berry scent which is not overpowering, it was enjoyable. This candle is perfect for a romantic dinner, just in time for Valentine’s Day. This travel size scent isn’t for sale on Leigh Lights Candle Co’s website, but there are floral, earthy, fruity, and cleansing scents available.
Vino Lux Sparkling Bath Fizz – Value $9.50
This bath fizz is handmade with love in California and is sulfate, paraben, phthalate & gluten free, as well as vegan and tested on people. It slowly dissolved in my bath water and the tiny particles floated above the water and adhered to the wall of the bathtub. There was a hint of berry aroma and a faint scent of berry on my skin as I exited the tub.
SipCaddy Cupholder – Value $13.95
This durable, recyclable, dishwasher safe ABS plastic is intended for “cups, stemware, cans, plastic bottles, and many other household items”. The caddy’s suction cup adheres to the tile of your shower or bath and the desired stemware is placed in the cup holder.
I placed the SipCaddy on the side surface of my bathtub and it slipped off the wall a couple of times as I was adjusting it to the surface. The can of La Croix water stayed in place but the wine glass was not steady in the caddy. I was afraid if I went to pick it up to take a sip and place back in the caddy, it would fall into the tub. I didn’t take the chance and didn’t leave the glass in the caddy for the duration of my bath. I would suggest a can or play around with various wine glasses to see which is the best fit.
XOXO Wine Block Sign – Value $11.19
This 12”x 2”x 3/4” black wood block sign with “XOXO Wine always & forever” is ideal for my living room décor.
Wine Condoms – Value $10.00
I was surprised when I read the info card, but thought okay it goes with the theme of Valentine’s Day and being romantic. Upon further investigation, they are 100% Nitrile-blended rubber covers for your wine bottle. It’s intended to take away from the hassle of corking your wine with various shaped wine stoppers; they take up less space and “sits flush with the rim of the bottle”. I received six in a box and they are small, convenient to use, and reusable.
I felt strange applying one to the bottle but once on, I found it to be convenient, sturdy, and take up less space. The wine bottle I used was empty (wine doesn’t last long in my home) so I poured water into the bottle and the liquid didn’t spill once it was placed on the bottle. What a clever storage idea for a wine bottle stopper.
Verdict: The February box consisted of amusing and clever wine related accessories. I have been wanting the Sip Caddy and I’m pleased to own one! The Uncorked Box has a value of $50.64, which is good for the $30 a month cost.
