May 2019 Ignis VellaBox Review

Vellabox Ignis May 2019 pouch

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag.

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

Now, on to the candle!

    Thistle and Finn ‘Joseph’s Dream’ Candle, 8 oz – Retail Value $24.00 (currently sold out)

    This candle is a blend of evergreen pine, tangy cranberry, and assorted citrus. I personally did not like the scent because it was both weirdly wintery and also felt like the height of summer. I feel lie this might be what Main smells like in July? The 100% soy way was clean burning and the candle had a ton of scent, enough to easily fill my living room.

    This candle arrived in this month’s Vivere and Lucerna subscription boxes as well (May 2019 reviews coming soon!).

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

      J R Watkins Lemon Cream Hand Cream Samples – Buy a full size 3.3 oz for $8.99

      Included were two samples for a shea butter based, lemon cream scented hand cream.

      Verdict: This month felt pretty ‘meh’ for me. I really didn’t like the scent of this candle and since there is only one per box, it was an easy miss for me. I generally love the candles in the sub, so maybe next month! For $20 we received $24 worth of candle value.

      To Wrap Up:

      Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You will likely receive the June 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. Did you try going to their Facebook page listed on the card? I found the candle there easily… It’s $24 for this 8 oz candle, by the way. Took a screenshot but didn’t know how to include it here.

        • Hey Jenny! I did, but couldn’t find the exact candles still for sale. I will try again! Did you find the exact scents still available?

        • Just took a peek and I did see retail values though they are all still sold out. I will edit the reviews to reflect this! Thank you!

      2. Shouldn’t the discount code on the info card be masked so it can only be used by subscribers?

        • Hey Sarah! Good catch! We updated the image. Thank you!
