LunaBabe Box June 2018 Review
When you subscribe to LunaBabe Box you take a very detailed quiz in order to try and customize a box that you will really love. This box does not come with an info sheet, so let’s just dive right in!
Spaghetti Strap Shirt
Oh boy. This shirt. Being a voluptuous gal, I am very wary of clothing in subscription boxes—and this shirt isn’t going to change my mind. The fabric reminds me of a drawstring athletic backpack, which means it has NO stretch (and also that it just feels weird). I could not get this over my chest, and I have a strong suspicion that if I did I would have looked like an overstuffed sausage in its casing. Moving on.
4th of July Flip Flops
This box arrived before the fourth of July, so these seasonal flip-flops were appropriate. These aren’t the sturdiest or highest quality, but I would wear them to a BBQ with no problem. I thought it was weird that these came with the tag attached, but the bottom (presumably where the price was) was ripped off.
Leopard Print Pouch
The texture of this pouch reminds me of a really bad pleather, and I would say most Ipsy bags are of a better quality (for reference). I think I am going to stick the rings from this month’s box and other odds and ends and give it to my neighbor’s little girls to play dress up with—I don’t think I have an adult friend that would like this.
Crystal Mae Creations Vanilla Cupcake Soap, 3 oz – Estimated Value $8
I was surprised to see this brand in this box—I also got bath bombs from them in my June Lavish Bath Box! What are the odds? I can be a bit of a snob when it comes to bakery scented items—if you read my Shea Shea Bakery reviews you know my nose is really sensitive to artificial scents. Nothing about this soap smells artificial—it smells just like a vanilla cupcake, and if I closed my eyes and smelled it I guarantee you I would try to bite it.
SpaLife Vitamin Sea Face Mask – Estimated Value $2.49
I couldn’t find this specific mask anywhere online, but other SpaLife face masks retail for $2.49 at Target. There was no expiration date listed for the face mask, but it had a pleasant smell and was comfortable to wear. It was really cooling on my face, which is just what I want when it is hot and humid outside. It also did not leave my skin sticky when I took it off, but it did take a bit of time to absorb.
Floating Flower Lights
These are pretty neat – the light In the flowers turn on when the bottom of the flowers come in contact with water! I haven’t seen anything like these before, and while I don’t know how I am going to use them going forward I am happy to have them. Unfortunately, as you can see from the photo above, the white flowers light did not work.
Temporary Tattoo and Ring Set – Estimated Value $20?
This set has a tag on the back that shows it used to retail at Kohls for $20. I have thick fingers, so these rings had no chance of fitting me—even some of the “midi” rings could barely fit over my fingertips. I don’t have anywhere to go that I would wear temporary tattoos on my skin, but you can actually use them on your nails for nail art! Apply to your nails like you were applying it somewhere else (cut down to size first), and then seal with a top coat and you are good to go. That is how I will be using them!
The Verdict: This box from LunaBabe Box was… interesting. When this box was first offered, it mentioned the value would be over $150. That promise isn’t on their website anymore, and while some older Instagram posts still have that language the newer ones don’t. That is probably for the best because I definitely do not think I got $150 worth of items. Almost everything was a miss for me, which is a bummer considering how personalized this box is supposed to be. However, this is only the second box that LunaBabe has put out. I have hope the boxes will get better as they continue to grow, and I also updated my style profile to be a bit more specific on my likes and dislikes. Only time will tell what the future holds for LunaBabe box!
