Heart + Honey Queen Bee Box September 2018 Review

The Empress info card

“The Empress” is the powerful theme of this month’s Heart + Honey.

On the back, you’ll find a description of the theme and a little about each item.

Wristicuffs Empress Charm Bracelet

Wow- this bracelet is heavy! I love the weight of it made up from the dark red garnet beads with sterling silver charms and tony golden beads. This has to be one of the nicest jewelry items I’ve received in a subscription box. It feels substantial and special. There are four charms in all on this bracelet including a crown, a budding flower, and a star and crescent moon which each have a special meaning for the woman worthy of it; The Empress in us all.

The LuxeLuv 17

One of the largest toys I’ve gotten from Heart + Honey is this 9.5-inch dual ended LuxeLuv stunner.

mushroom-shaped end of The LuxeLuv 17

If the mushroom shape looks familiar, it’s because it’s similar to the hugely popular magic wand that has been around for ages. Excitingly enough, I don’t own one so this one will fill that need in my collection. This end can be used on more external sensitive areas of the body.

The other end is more for internal use and has a few ridges to enhance things a bit.

controls for The LuxeLuv 17

Once powered up using the included magnetic USB charger, this pink-hued medical grade silicone-coated toy has two ways to sing it’s praise. Holding down the center power button lights up the controls and gives a single vibration to know it’s ready to go to work. There are two ends, two motors, and therefore two buttons to control this fella. Each arrow points to the end that it controls and they can even both be vibrating at the same time! In addition to the 3 constant vibrations, there are plenty of patterns to toggle through as well until you find something you enjoy.

The charging cord uses magnets to connect to the body of the toy for it to charge. As always, you can plug it directly into the USB port of a laptop or use a wall adapter.

Heart + Honey has been great about sending items to really pamper you and they continue that pattern with this little spa set made especially for this box. The yellow flowers are “bath truffles” that smell like a delightful mix of citrus and lavender along with rosemary and juniper. The directions say to simply crumble two at a time into a bath to release the scents and accompanying cocoa and shea butter to soften and soothe your skin. The pink pack is full of “bubble dust” and can be added in any amount to the bath to add the intoxicating and delicious scents to your Empress bath. Soak it all up as you plot your next power move to gain a more fulfilling life. Can’t wait to dive into a warm bath with these two come Fall.

goodie bag

Lastly, there’s the goodie bag that includes two items.

Karess Krafters Apothecary Whispers for Women Feminine Wash with cap off back of Karess Krafters Apothecary Whispers for Women Feminine Wash

Karess Krafters Apothecary Whispers for Women Feminine Spray Wash, 0.5 oz. travel size – Retail Value $5.50

I love when they include speciality items that I normally don’t think about. This feminine wash comes in a little travel size bottle that you can keep in your bag in case you need to feel fresh on a whim. This wash uses all natural and gentle ingredients without harsh chemicals that can irritate delicate areas of the body. I love the soft rose scent.

Karess Krafters Apothecary Yoni Sacred Feminine Oil ingredients and directions for Karess Krafters Apothecary Yoni Sacred Feminine Oil dropper for Karess Krafters Apothecary Yoni Sacred Feminine Oil

Karess Krafters Apothecary Yoni Sacred Feminine Oil, 1 dram sample size – Buy a full-size bottle for $20.99

The other item is also from Karess Krafters and is an oil to restore your natural lubrication or simply moisturize your delicate area after shaving. This is to be used more around the external area of your feminine area as opposed to internally and helps calm and soothe any dryness or discomfort after things like childbirth, being intimate, or an exam. Like the spray, this is completely natural and free of any harsh ingredients. I’ve never used something quite like this, but I’m willing to give it a whirl! It smells lovely and the dropper assists with using the proper amount.

Verdict: Heart + Honey kept it simple this month and focused on recharging as well as taking charge. The toy this month was a great transition from receiving double toys for several months, but really packs a punch along with, as always, delivering something new. I’m eager to try more of the new body-centered items that will allow me to feel my best and was really impressed with the bracelet this month.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Normally your subscription will start the month following the month you subscribe, but if there are current boxes still available you may be able to snag one! Heart + Honey will usually reach out when you first subscribe if you have an option.

From Heart + Honey:

Subscription orders are taken from the first day of the month, until the last. Renewals occur on the 15th of the month.  Month-to-month subscriptions will renew on a monthly basis, and 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions will renew in the correlating time frame.  So for example, if you were to order a month-to-month subscription on the 12th of April, your first box will ship between the 1st-5th of May.  Renewal will happen on the 15th of May.

Coupon – Use code MSA10 to save 10% off any subscription!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $69.99 + $7.18 shipping, which means that each of the four items (including the set as one) in the box has an average cost of $19.29.

  1. I will be listing the bracelet up for swap, if it strikes anyone’s fancy.

  2. Their price point is very high to me.

  3. I love that bracelet! Wristicuffs offers the My Meraki box, jewelry only, reviewed by MSA.

  4. This was the first month I signed up for after the awesome curation of the last boxes. Honestly I feel pretty disappointed. I don’t really wear jewelry, I’m allergic to both of the bath scents, AND I can’t use the last two items. Even if I could use everything the box seems pretty bare for the cost… debating if I should wait it out another month or cancel now. The theme was so promising!

    • Yes, it was a promising theme. And I was actually a little surprised by the curation as well. For some reason, I was comparing it in my mind to the “Cleopatra” (or whatever it was) box, which was one of their coolest and most surprising boxes ever.

      It’s too bad you can’t Swap toys, because I would definitely have listed this.
      .

    • I will buy the bracelet from you, I love it.

  5. MSA code isn’t working for me.

    • NM, it was just me lol… I accidentally copied a space when a grabbed the code.
