December 2019 Ignis Vellabox Review

The candle arrives in a reusable drawstring bag. This one is decked out in evergreen boughs, pine cones, and tree stumps!

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

Now, on to the candle!


Banter & Bliss ‘Holiday Hearth’ Candle, 7 oz – Retail Value $18.00

I loved this little candle! It smells exactly how a holiday candle should. There are some bright orange spice notes blended with sharp pine sap and evergreen needles. I also noticed something very earthy, and this is probably the vetiver note. This is my type of holiday candle because it includes all of the scents I typically associate with winter, without the sticky sweet notes I don’t love.

This is a coconut wax blend candle with a cotton wick. It has an even burn and was hand-poured in California. This candle has a nice scent projection and easily filled my living room.

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


Ghirardelli Hot Cocoa Mix, 0.85 oz – Buy 10.5 oz for $4.67

This is a perfect little accent to my holiday candle. I enjoyed mine with almond milk while I lit my new candle. The double chocolate was pure indulgence!

Verdict: This month’s Vellabox was absolutely perfect for this holiday season! While I loved the scent, I do have to mention that this month wasn’t the best value. The total cost including shipping was $23 and our candle had a value of $18, leaving the cute packaging and cocoa to make up the rest. I still love this sub as a discovery experience though because I never would have found some of these awesome smaller candle brands without it. 

To Wrap Up:

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

COUPON: Use code MSA5 to save $5 off.

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.
