NSFW SlutBox by Amber Rose Review – November 2019
SlutBox by Amber Rose is a 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. They’ve just gotten a box update, so “SLUTBOX” is no longer on the front of the box- it’s now inside.
NSFW – this post may not be safe to read at work due to the name.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

SlutBox by Amber Rose November 2019 Review
Psst- hey! Did y’all forget about SlutBox? She’s not dead. She’s just waaaaay behind on shipping. We finally received the November box on January 9th. Strangely enough, this month also finally unveiled their new box design which is plain brown on the outside and bright pink and white on the inside.
I’ll be honest, for that long of a wait, I thought we’d have some brand new products, but low and behold, they dubbed it a “Mystery Extravaganza” (although the theme is “Cuffing” as in, cuffing season) and it only contains past items. Perhaps this is fine for newer subscribers, but for ones who have been around since the beginning, it’s a little “whomp whomp.”
Since most of these are past items, I thought I’d take a trip down past reviews and go ahead and reuse my thoughts as they did with the products. Without further ado, let’s get into it:
Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Noir Indulgence Cream, 1.69 oz. – Retail Value $29.99
This was originally featured in the April 2019 SlutBox. It was $37.99 back then but has since dropped to $29.99. Here’s what I thought of it then:
“At first, I thought this was a hand cream because of the tube, but it turns out it’s a facial moisturizer. I’m not familiar with Dr. Botanicals, but they hail from the UK. The metal tube the moisturizer comes in is kind of nice and has a red floral pattern on it. I was turned off by the scent at first since it’s a bit strong for facial cream, but it’s actually growing on me quite a bit. The main ingredients are coconut oil and Tiare flower extract which gives it the floral scent I’m picking up. The full list of ingredients doesn’t list pomegranate so I’m not sure where that came from, but I’m enjoying it nonetheless. Once I squeezed some out, it became more clear that it’s intended for the face since it has a milky color and isn’t as thick as a hand cream. It does a great job moisturizing and keeping my skin soft, so color me impressed.”
Sutil Mint Body Glide, 2 oz. – Retail Value $15.50
Also from the April 2019 SlutBox:
“Personal Lubricant is no stranger to SlutBox and this month’s offering is in the form of a 2-ounce travel size of water-based mint body glide. It has a really slippery consistency and while it does taste slightly minty, it’s not my favorite thing to eat. The mint (which is organic) also adds a bit of a tingle as well and the discreet size can be tossed in an overnight bag easily.”
3 for 3 with the April 2019 SlutBox, although my last one was pink.
“I’m embarrassed to say that I was a little excited when I saw this in the box. I don’t take a ton of selfies, but any lighting that isn’t daylight is usually pretty rough (aka not so flattering). This plastic device clips onto your smartphone and emits three different levels of light in a ring which is meant to give your face the perfect glow. While I’m on the fence at how flattering this bright light is, there’s no doubt it will allow you to take much brighter pics while out at night or indoors when the lighting isn’t good. This product doesn’t have a brand on it and doesn’t seem super high-quality but it gets the job done. It comes with a USB charging cord which means it doesn’t need batteries and there’s a little button on the back that allows you to toggle through the three brightnesses. I feel like the retail value is pretty inflated based on a similar product I could find online which isn’t out of character for SlutBox.”
SlutBox Custom Pink Cherry Bomb Reusable Tote – Listed Value $10.00
This was first sent with the August 2019 SlutBox. I guess I have two now, which is not horrible because I can always use more grocery bags.
“This is a legitimate custom design, complete with Amber Rose’s signature on a tag when it’s fully collapsed. This is a sort of knock off of Baggu or any of the foldable grocery totes that are around, but the fabric is a little less luxe. It’s a baby pink color and has “Cherry Bomb” written in script on the front in red with illustrated cherries around it. This is great to toss in your purse or in the glove box of your car to reduce plastic bag waste or simply to tote around anything you buy while shopping. I find this to be a super useful item and will happily add it to my arsenal.”
Hollywood Fashion Secrets Fashion Tape, 36 strips – Retail Value $7.08
Okay, it seems I was wrong about this product. I had received a different product from this brand that seems to have been phased out and replaced by these in the July 2018 SlutBox. But I have received the fashion tape in another box which I always thought seemed suspiciously similar to SlutBox, yet on the opposite end of the customer spectrum. 🤔At any rate, these strips aren’t really for me since I am a casual gal and rarely wear clothing that I need to tape to my body. These would surely come in handy for those who like plunging necklines though.
Beth Bender Beauty Eye Candy Eyeliner Stencils – Listed Value $2.99 (Get a starter pack here for $9.99)
Once again, I am wrong because these eyeliner stencils are not a repeat. My bad! The sample pack contains two sticky-backed stencils that you can place around your eyelid to get a perfect winged eyeliner look. While I think these can be useful, I don’t wear eyeliner so they are a bit lost on me. I feel so old and uncool.
They included a coupon code for a product called Keto Detox Tea in the box as well.
Verdict: November’s SlutBox was one of the most disappointing to me only because it included mostly items from past boxes that I already have. As I mentioned at the beginning, this may be a pretty decent box to newer subscribers, but may also be confusing because it seems like everyone may have gotten different items at random since there was no info on the info card for them. Still no word about December although from their December 24th email to subscribers they said “December’s Box will ship shortly after November’s, with January expected to ship around its normal date. Please reply to this email with any questions at all!” Only time will tell!
