VellaBox Lucerna March 2019 Review

Vellabox Lucerna March 2019 pouch

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. I always find uses for these little pouches in my life, from storing jewelry on trips to packaging little gifts!

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

Now, on to the candle!

Mr. B’s Luminaries Candle in Lavender Rosemary, 4 oz – Estimated Value $13.56 (buy a 5 oz. candle for $16.95)

Ahhh I love lavender. It is one of my favorite smells any time of year, but in early spring it feels especially celebratory, as everything starts to get green again and flowers consider gracing us with their presence yet again. This candle is a blend of lavender and rosemary, which smells so clean and fresh. It is made of 100% pure soy wax for a clean burn and the fragrance is from all natural and undiluted essential oils.

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

Meyers Clean Day Hand Lotion Samples

I already know and love this brand, and these little single-use samples are perfect for carrying in my purse. I was sent two scents: lavender and basil.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $13.56 without adding in any value for the free samples. That is close to the $13 subscription cost. I love that this sub focuses on small batch, clean, and American made artisan candles. If you love burning special and unique candles and enjoy a surprise each month, you can’t go wrong with this sub.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You will likely receive the April 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.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. They are not the same pics, at least not the one with the candles near the box, look again. Are they the same scent, yep, but the scents are random amongst the months options so not surprising.

  2. Agreed….The photos are exactly the same ones used for the candle that is twice the size…. That is really misleading, as I don’t think the candle shown in this box is the size you would receive if you subbed at the $10 level.

    • Hey Amber, sorry for the confusion. These are different photos for each candle, though the style of packaging is the same, and so are the scents. Proportionally, the jar sizes are different. We know this can be hard to judge based on photos alone, so we always try and include the oz info on each product. Hope this helps!

      • ahhhh, ok. The photos looked to be staged EXACTLY the same, so it was really not noticeable upon first glance that the candles are different sizes.

  3. I’m confused- this is the same review that we previously posted for the ‘Ignis’ version of this box

    • Let me see if I can help out on the confusion! This ‘Lucerna’ box contains one 4 oz candle. The Ignis contains one 8 oz candle. Though the packaging is the same style on the candle, you can tell this candle is smaller because there is less glass around it on the bottom side image. They were both the same scent, so I can see where the confusion came from! Thanks for reading. 🙂
