Luxor Box is a luxe subscription box for women that includes beauty, home, jewelry, accessory items and more. Boxes ship every other month.

(FYI – Luxor Box sent this to me on time, I’m just very behind in getting the review up.)

As always, the packaging is gorgeous and would be great for gifting.

This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This box came with a large card detailing all of the items included:

Now, on to the items!

Bellabeat Bluetooth earphones – Retail Value $99

These Bluetooth earbuds are white with rose gold metal accents.

They come with a little square case that zips closed and has a mesh pocket to store your charging cable and spare ear hooks in addition to the earbuds:

My favorite part of the design? The earbuds have a magnet design so you can wear them around your neck when you aren’t using them:

The set includes different earbud pieces so you can get a comfortable fit.

And these function as a mic as well.

I was legit impressed with the sound quality of these earbuds (I had my husband Eric test them, too – he has a better ear for sound quality), and the design is functional and chic!

Bellabeat Inspire Bracelet in Silver or Rose Gold – Retail Value $24.99

The text engraved in this bracelet reads, “Live well, Laugh Often, Love Much”

Subscribers will receive either this rose gold color or silver color.

Here it is on:

Super slim and good for stacking!

Circcell Creme E.R.3 – Retail Value $150

Circcell is an ingredient-conscious $$ skincare brand I’ve sampled before thanks to Luxor Box, and my skin definitely agrees with their formulations. This cream is designed to help smooth lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone, and boost skin elasticity.

I found the cream to be heavier than a lot of day creams I use, but it still didn’t make my skin feel greasy. I’ve been using this at night and love how hydrated it makes my skin feel. (I feel like I’m constantly battling dry skin and winter will never end at this point!)

Kiko Small Leather Wristlet in Blue – Retail Value $45

Kiko is a brand that appears in Luxor Box often, and it’s also one of my favorite brands that Luxor box has featured. I’m always impressed with the quality of the leather goods for the price.

This wallet fits my iPhone and some cash + cards – just the essentials. I find these types of wallets to be perfect for conferences or events where you can’t bring in large purses/backpacks, etc.

Here it is in hand to give you a better sense of scale:

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $319. I think that value is good for a $139 luxe box, and as usual with Luxor Box, whether or not that box is a good fit for you usually comes down to the hero item. For me, my surprise hit was the Circcell cream! The wallet is a classic staple I’ll use for years, too. While I like the earbuds + the bracelet, too, I do think it’s important to call out that those items are no longer for sale on the Bellabeat site. (I believe when these items were first spoiled they were still available for sale through Bellabeat, so that’s not necessarily a fault on Luxor, but still thought it was important to call out.)

If you’re thinking of signing up for this subscription, I definitely recommend checking out the spoilers. (For example, the March box spoiler pretty much covers the entire cost of the box, so if you’d buy it alone, everything else is bonus!)

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, this box is sold out. If you sign up today, it looks like your first box will be the March box.

  1. Anyone have any idea when the March box should ship or arrive?

    • This is the reply I received Tuesday from customer service :

      thanks for reaching out! We haven’t shipped yet though so not to worry 🙂 we ship between the 15th and the end of the month and we’re on track to ship next week!

      You’ll receive a shipping notice via email and your tracking number within. So stay tuned and it’ll be on its way to you soon!

  2. I also got the gilt city deal and have been really disappointed with just about every single box so far. The ear buds don’t work (won’t charge) and I don’t like anything else.

    I’m someone who understands that not ever months box is going to make everyone happy but this is going to be a hard pass on renewing after my gilt sub runs out

  3. I also bought the Gilt voucher for a year and overall I am pleased but I am not renewing at full price. This box I liked unfortunately I found the headsets uncomfortable. I tried all the ear pieces and I couldn’t get them to comfortably stay in. My teen son didn’t like the fit either. The sound is great though. I loved the face cream and use it every night and I wear the bracelet everyday as well. The wristlet I gifted to my sister but I loved the quality as well. Now waiting for the March box but wondering if that will just pop up on my doorstep like the January box which I received no tracking. That worries me a bit since what if the package is lost in transit.

    • I’m really worried about that too! I live in the city where packages are regularly left on my stoop and stolen if we don’t get home for awhile. So annoying and stressful.

  4. I had originally bought the Gilt voucher for 6 boxes and when they started playing games I had it canceled. I don’t know if I would have loved this box at $40 but I know I’d be pissed if I had been a regular priced subscriber.

    • I’m locked in at $95 and was satisfied with this box. I’d gladly purchase multiple boxes for $40!!!

      • It is such a great value at $40. I bought the 6 box Gilt voucher and I’ve received 3 of them so far, and I’ve loved them all. I definitely won’t resubscribe at $139 when my 6 boxes are complete, though.

  5. I really love the cream. It’s perfect for my skin and leaves it hydrated and smooth and fresh looking in the morning.

  6. Liz, where do you get your glass palettes? I originally thought it was the Scott Barnes one but yours is smaller.

    Thanks

  7. Still glad that I cancelled Luxor over a year ago. I have swapped for 2 of the Kiko wristlets (for gifts) and they are very nice. But that ‘s the only item I’d have used in this box.

    I fail to understand Luxor’s obsession with CircCell. I can’t get rid of CC products on my swap listings and end up throwing them out (too dated to swap).

    • Oh my, I have been trying to swap for the circcell oil, it works sooooo well on me! Linked my swap address to my name if anyone doesn’t care for their circcell! 😘

    • I LOVE Circcell and this one in particular is difficult to swap for! Most people aren’t interested in swapping it for beauty and want full RV to swap for home items. Um no, I won’t be swapping a Massi throw for this product even though I love it.

    • I LOVE Circ-cell products! They aren’t easy to swap for, this cream in particular. Most people don’t want to swap it for beauty and want full RV for home goods. I would love a couple more bottles of this but I’m not swapping a Massi throw for it!

  8. Liz, do you have any issues with the sound cutting out on the earbuds? I have the FFF ones and they cut out a lot. It’s pretty irritating. I’m trying to decide if I want to swap for these.

    • The sound has been intermittent from the day I opened the earbuds! Terrible!!

  9. I did a 3 box subscription and was really happy with it. This was my favorite box of the last 3. Circ-cell was my favorite item in the box as well but I really love the kiko bag. Blue is my neutral so it goes with almost my entire wardrobe.

  10. I think I’m kind of an old school, set in my ways, dope – can you guys do an old lady a huge favor and list examples of scenarios when you use these headphones. I have a bunch now and I find I never use them so I’m hoping you guys might share when you use them and can inspire me.

    I’ve used the corded ones on airplanes but I guess I just don’t ever grab the Bluetooth ones for anything. THANKS!

    • I use them when I workout or tidy up the house.

    • i use them when i’m out shopping or running errands to listen to podcasts or music and ignore the rest of the world. 😬

      • Best way to prevent employees in a store from approaching and trying to up-sell you.

    • I use them at night when my boyfriend goes to sleep early and I want to listen to a podcast, video or music on my phone without disturbing him. Also when I ride my bike, do household chores and sometimes at work.

    • Bluetooth headsets are great for listening to music when you’re working out or doing any activity where cords can be bothersome. As far as just in-ear headphones are concerned, those never do me any good because unfortunately I have the type of ears where the pieces refuse to stay in my ear no matter what size buds I’m using. I’d love to see a box send quality on ear or over ear headphones for a change.

      • I have the same issue, the buds won’t stay in my ear or they hurt. I’d love some beats headphones bc music is everything to me. Got to have music and a good ole CO bowl! Haha

  11. I will use everything in this box, so it’s a win for me!

  12. I love this box for the price I paid for it, which was about $40. It has a good mix of functional products and one good beauty product. Just what I like in a luxury style box.

    • For $40 this is a wonderful box for $139.00- No way.

  13. On no planet is this box worth 139.00.

    • Just planet Luxor
