NSFW SlutBox by Amber Rose Review – May 2019
SlutBox by Amber Rose is lifestyle and beauty subscription geared towards sex-positive people (often containing lube, condoms, pasties, and other sex-forward items). It’s $29.99 a month and tends to be a little controversial because of its name as well as some of the items included. It seems they are going through a transition now that they’ve been around for one full year and I’m *thinking* they are going to fade out the name “SlutBox” in general. 🤔

SlutBox by Amber Rose May 2019 Review
SlutBox used to come with a zine every month they have slowly faded out and replaced with the SlutBlog. This month there is a fold-out booklet that celebrates their one-year anniversary. Last month they teased a new box design but it seems as if they weren’t ready in time since May came in a plain brown box much smaller than the usual one. Maybe we’ll see it in June.
They’ve also included a few coupons for some of the included items, as well as one that isn’t in the box, the Minna Limon adult toy.
Holographic Pink Fanny Pack – Listed Value $30.00 (Found here for $19.99)
The info booklet says Amber Rose “designed this exclusive fanny pack” but we all know that is not true since I easily found it online from an unrelated retailer. You cannot fool me, MUVA! That is par for the course with SlutBox, but it is a very cute summery item so, whatevs. This outrageous pink holographic fanny pack has two compartments (main and front pocket) that close with rainbow zippers and rose gold zipper pulls. There’s a black nylon strap that’s adjustable so it should fit most. There’s so much room that all of the items this month came stuffed inside of it with space to spare, so this will be adequate for festivals or a trip to the amusement park with your friends. I went ahead and modeled it for y’all in a classic way (around the waist) as well as how I think the kids are wearing it these days (across the chest). This bag is a little loud for me personally, but Anna‘s eyes LIT UP when she saw it so she is truly the rightful owner of it now. If you happen to see an original Vision Street Wear fanny pack like this though, holler at your girl, please.
Kandeolove Glitter Pot in Euphoria, 6 g – Retail Value $10.00 (similar linked)
I am not a glitter-gal so this pot of silver glitter with stars and hexagons is a little lost on me, but it sure looks like a fun way to go all out. You’ll need some sort of adhesive glitter glue that’s safe for skin to apply, but it can be used on the skin or in your hair. This is the larger size the company offers so it seems like you have quite a bit to last many lewks.
Kozmic Ryder Lucid Tea, 125 oz. – Retail Value $24.00
I did not expect to see a tea in SlutBox, but here we are. It kind of fits their general vibe since they’ve offered other items that are “witchy” in nature and this blend is supposed to promote having lucid dreams. It comes with its own info card about lucid dreaming yet doesn’t have directions on how much to use here, or on the actual package. I also failed to locate directions on their website, so I’m just going to wing it. First off, it smells freaking amazing. It’s made with all organic ingredients such as mugwort, cinnamon, chamomile, peppermint, hibiscus, damiana, rose petals, licorice root, and lavender. These all sound like calming sleepytime things that I love so I’m stoked to try it. I let it steep for maybe 5 minutes and the tea it produced was quite lovely! It’s floral and minty and I can taste the cinnamon come through as well. They encourage this tea as a nighttime ritual which given the use makes sense. Even though I’m trying it during the day, I’m interested to see if it really will help with having lucid dreams which the info card says allows you to connect to your most powerful and true self.
“SEXY” Rhinestone Hair Clip – Listed Retail Value $15.00 (found here for $6.86)
I recently got a hair clip just like this that said “OUI” in another box (which was valued at $10.00), and other clips like these are available in a wide range of prices that can easily be put on any branded card, so it’s tough to get a true value on this. It fits the SlutBox aesthetic for sure, but it’s not for me and my hair is so fine that this large bobby pin just slides out. I’m strikin’ out!
Good Clean Love Rebalance pH-Balanced Feminine Wipe, 1 ct – Estimated Retail Value $0.58 (Buy a box of 12 for $6.99)
Once again, we find ourselves with a sample packet and the booklet calls out the full-size value. I suppose that’s not out of the ordinary for sub boxes, but I find it misleading if you were looking at values based on, say, spoilers. Anyhow- here we have a single feminine wipe that is pH balanced to keep you feeling fresh in your most delicate area while relieving dryness, odor, and discomfort. I try to not mess with the natural happenings of my lady parts, but I can see this being helpful before or after a “slutty” encounter.
The Sign Tribe Nailfix & Chill (now called “Remove & Chill”) Nail Polish Eraser Cream – Retail Value $14.99
Well well well- here we have the “mystery surprise” item, aka a beauty item from a past box. I think this is the 3rd month in a row they’ve had a mystery item and I’m never excited about them. This product came in my December box and since I get gel polish on my acrylics, I didn’t have a way to even test it out. I now have regular polish on my toes and it happens to be a really stubborn metallic polish that I allowed my Mom to pick out at a Mother’s Day trip to the nail salon. I had removed enough with traditional polish remover to make the color a lot lighter, but I got frustrated and gave up trying to completely remove it. I decided this would be perfect to try this out. It doesn’t contain acetone and has some surprisingly natural ingredients like beeswax and sweet almond oil. Its main claim is that it smells really nice, unlike traditional liquid polish removers and that is 100% true. I’d describe it as “fruity”. You’re supposed to add a thick layer to the lacquer and wait one minute for each layer of polish you’d like to remove. After about three minutes, I was truly amazed how this just melted away the polish. I just used a tissue to wipe and it all came right off. I talked a lot of trash on this stuff, but now I am a believer. Unfortunately, I still can’t use it on my gel nails though. 🙁
Verdict: This month’s SlutBox might be one of my least favorites. I think this is the fewest amount of items we’ve seen and although I like that when it comes to full-size luxury beauty, it doesn’t seem right in this subscription that normally has a lot of samples. Per usual, the values were inflated compared to what I found online and there was no coherent theme. I realize I am probably not the target audience for this box, but looking at it as an experience standpoint, there’s not a lot here to get excited for unless you love the fanny pack. The tea is the most expensive item and probably the one I like the most. If you’re really into all of the items included, they do have a total value of $76.42 which is higher than the $29.99 cost, so I suppose the value is there but this box just seems random.
