Bolzano Lux Handbag & Accessories Review – November 2019

Bolzano November 2019 unopened package

Bolzano is a women’s accessory brand that prides itself on high-quality handcrafted Italian leather, vegan leather, and nylon handbags. While they used to offer a purse-only subscription, it looks like they now only offer the Purse & Accessories monthly subscription for $33.95, and the Lux Handbag, Accessories, & Beauty subscription for $43.95.

This is a review of the Lux Handbag, Accessories, & Beauty Subscription for $43.95 a month.

Bolzano Lux Handbag, Accessories, & Beauty November 2019 Review

After I signed up, I was sent a lengthy questionnaire that asked me about my color and pattern preferences, purse style and shapes that I liked (or didn’t like), and any other information I would like to share with the Bolzano team to ensure a good match!

Bolzano Black Quilted Shoulder Bag

Classy and chic are two words I would use to describe this bag. I am loving the simplistic design with the quilted detailing! This bag is 12″ X 14″ and can fit all your essentials plus more! I did not receive any information on what materials this purse is made from, but I can say it is sturdy, yet soft, and looks very well made. The hardware is attached well, the zippers glide smoothly and the stitching is perfect. There is one outer zip pocket that can fit my iPhone, an inner zipper pocket for girly essentials, and 2 sewn-in pouches. While this purse can be carried by the handles, they also included a removable shoulder strap, which I NEED! Like all Bolzano purses, it also comes with a shiny silver “B” keychain. Since I started using this purse, I have already been asked where to get one! (For size reference, I am 5’7″.)

Bolzano November 2019 package of spa goodies

This month we received 2 bags with our beauty and accessories. I just had to see what this neon pink reusable bag held inside!

 

Parlo Mud Scrub

I LOVE face masks, and this charcoal and tea tree scrub/mask had me ready to jump in the tub! Not only did I love the tea tree/charcoal formula, but after doing a little research I was happy to see it is also a cruelty-free product! I have combination skin, and I applied this to my wet face allowing it to dry for 15 minutes. After rinsing away and applying my nighty moisturizer I could DEFINITELY tell a difference! My skin looked so much brighter and was so much softer! I will absolutely be adding this to my weekly home spa night!

 

Charcoal & Lavender Bath Bar

How beautiful is this bath bar? I am obsessed with anything lavender scented, so this was an absolute hit! This lovely flower-shaped bar is divided into 2 sections for a very interesting look. I could definitely smell the lavender, and the bar lathered up really well. Charcoal tends to be drying, but I didn’t notice that with this bar which makes it a win!

 

Under Girl Mini Face Brush

The next item we received was this T-sonic facial cleansing device. It looks slightly like a Foreo Luna but has an increase/decrease button for vibration speed. It also has larger bristles on the backside for a deeper clean. When it is turned on, the device even lights up! They also included a USB charger that should be used once every 5 months. When I surfed the ‘net for info on the brand “Under Girl” I found nothing, but I am pleasantly surprised with how well it works!

Bolzano November 2019 accessories bag

We received an even bigger goodie bag as well! What could be in here?!

Bolzano November 2019 tin and keychain

Paris Tin and Keychain

How cute are this tin and keychain?! I love everything about it: the pastels, the pearls, the bow, the Eiffel Tower, the macarons, and how it shines! Plus the keychain seems really well made, and can clip on and off of anything! My son discovered that he can store a hot wheels car in the tin perfectly!

Not only did they send the tin, but they filled it too!

Bolzano Pearl Hair Pin

I wear my hair up very often, and I have found this pearl hairpin to be the perfect amount of added detailing to any updo! The pearls are adhered to the pin well, and it looks really pretty. I have no other pins quite like this, so it was a welcomed accessory!

Silver Laser Cut-Out Earrings

Also in the tin was this pair of silver laser cut-out earrings. They are quite large in size and feature 2 teardrops with slightly different laser patterns. They are very thin, and light. While I think they are pretty, they just aren’t quite my style and will be sending them to my niece who will appreciate them more.

 

Bolzano November 2019 headband on

Pearl Knit Headband

The last item in this month’s bag is this dusty pink knitted winter headband. Because it has been snowing and blowing like crazy in Minnesota, an item like this will come in handy! Like I said above, I style my hair up a lot, which doesn’t work with hats. While this obviously isn’t as warm as a hat, it is stylish and did help keep my ears warmer than they would have been otherwise! I really liked the pearl accents, and the knot in the middle. A useful and cute accessory to end on!

The Verdict: I really like the Bolzano box! The purse was just my style, really well made, and one I will get a lot of use out of. I have been reviewing this subscription for 3 months now, and I have loved each bag they have sent. I have used each purse multiple times, and have yet to see any wear or tear on any of them. While most of the accessories are unable to be located online, I found this month’s to be really functional and fun- especially the mud mask! If you are on a budget and looking to step up your purse game, I recommend checking out Bolzano.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? You can definitely still sign up, but the bag and accessories you get depend on what you enter into your style profile and what the stylists pick for you. If you have your heart set on a particular piece, reach out to customer service and see if they can help!

Value Breakdown: For $43.95 I received 9 items, so you are paying about $4.88 an item, which I feel is a great deal!

While I am taking a time-out from being a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, I am currently staying at home with my 2 sweet boys! My first subscription was Julep thanks to happening upon the MSA website, and it all went downhill from there! I have subscribed to Ipsy, Boxycharm, Degustabox, Julep, Graze, Bluum, Walmart, and more because I love a good surprise! I truly am a subscription addict!

  1. What is the name of the bag style?

  2. I’d be interested in hearing what someone else with this sub received!

  3. Under girl is a knockoff of a Foreo. Refinery 29 commented on them in an article called” Counterfeit Beauty Is Booming: Can You Tell The Real From The Fake?” they said –

    “ The Foreo Luna Mini 2 Facial Cleansing Brush is available on Amazon for £95.20. An almost identical counterfeit Foreo costs £6.99. Tempted? I was, so I ordered one. A few days later I received a garbled but friendly message from the supplier, which made me feel uneasy, but two weeks later my device arrived, in pink.

    It looks almost identical to my legit Foreo; the bristles felt a little coarser on my skin but other than that, my ‘Under Girl’ device was pretty much a carbon copy of the real thing.”

    • Thanks for that info Beth, I’ll be on the lookout for that “knockoff”. I like the bag and that little Paris tin is adorable. Good Review Becca!

  4. The quality looks pretty amazing considering the price of the subscription. However, I just can’t abide pleather. How I have amassed so many purses, I can only venture the guess that I’m a sleep shopper. 🙂 If I didn’t have so many beautiful real designer purses already, this would definitely be on my radar. It is nice that there is a faux leather purse subscription that is so reasonably priced and of such high quality.

    • The purse quality is pretty great! Some of the accessories can be hit or miss, but I’ve had really good luck in the purse department. Bolzano does send real leather purses sometimes, but because they don’t send any information on the purse’s materials, I couldn’t tell you if I have received one or not. Thanks for commenting!

      • You can usually smell if a purse is real leather. As for me, I prefer pleather. I try not to wear animal hides.

  5. Wow what a neat box!! First I’ve heard of it. May just have to subscribe to this one. Wish I could still receive the November box 🙃

    • Thanks for commenting Amarie! This is a fun box! If you are on a budget and looking for some cute stuff, this is your subscription!

  6. Thanks for the review, Becca. I look forward to these reviews each month.

    • You’re welcome Sharon! Thank you for commenting!!
