VellaBox Lucerna October 2018 Review

Vellabox Lucerna October 2018 - Candle In Reusable Drawstring Bag

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. I love reusing these bags for traveling and even carrying small toiletries. I love the fall theme of the pumpkins on this bag!

And each box comes with an info card detailing the candles featured that month:

Now, on to the candle!

Vellabox Lucerna October 2018 - Cinder Open Front

Untamed Supply Cinder – Estimated Value $10.00

This 100% soy wax candle has a burn time of 20 hours. The scent has notes of hickory, smoke, clove, and fir. To me, it smelled very smokey – when I lit this in my home it immediately reminded me of being in the woods at a campfire. At first, I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, but I think it sets a cozy mood and is great for fall and winter. I love that this candle is non-toxic and handmade, with no additives or dyes, and even gives 3% back to national parks!

And each VellaBox also comes with a little treat like a food or beauty item:

Chocolate is a perfect addition to this box – light a the cinder candle, bundle up in a blanket, and eat a piece of chocolate!

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $10+. That’s right at the $12 a month cost. (Other months the value has been slightly above or right at the $22 cost.) I would definitely recommend this if you’re interested in discovering new scents and brands of candles.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You will likely receive the November box. From VellaBox:

Once you sign up for a monthly membership, all boxes will ship on the 5th of each month. For new subscribers we will be flexible to ensure as many customers as possible can receive the current months box. Therefore, if you sign up after the 5th, but before the 20th we will ship you that month’s box.

  1. I ordered a 3 month (gift to myself) subscription… my first candle was mailed on 11/5 – but I still haven’t received it (11/20). Ilyana, did you have any delivery problems with this sub? I’m stressing a little… I submitted a ticket a couple days ago with Vellabox, but haven’t gotten any response yet. 🙁 USPS claims to have tried to deliver twice but “couldn’t access the property” (there are no barriers, it’s not a gated community, and I’ve had 3 other packages from them successfully delivered during that time). Any suggestions? Thanks!
