Vellabox is a monthly candle subscription box that delivers top quality, natural candles from artisan makers across the USA. Every month they send you a different candle curated to their scent preferences and the season. Every candle featured in the box is made with 100% natural wax, clean fragrance, and cotton-braided wicks - guaranteed non-toxic, cruelty-free, and vegan. In addition, you'll receive a surprise "lifestyle" item chosen along the same health forward lines from businesses with a focus in natural products and social good. They offer three box sizes that range in price depending on subscription duration: The Lucerna (starting at $14/month), The Ignis (starting at $22/month), and the Vivere (starting at $38/month.)

This is a review of the "Vivere" 16 oz. candle and gift $38 box.

First Impressions

 

Candles are one of my must-haves in dealing with anxiety, and after discovering just how discolored our furnace filter was from using non-natural, non-toxin-free candles, I knew I had to make a change. I happened upon Vellabox and have been so impressed with the candle quality, fragrance, and simplistic design. Altering my scent profile to be matched with fragrances I know I will be sure to enjoy, I burn these candles all the time. Along with the candle, I also received a surprise sample, a Spotify playlist, and cards with inspirational quotes and candle information.

What's Inside the Box

Living Albright "Dream" Candle — Retail Value $14.00 - $38.00

 

This month the featured candle maker was Living Albright. This company was started by Riley and Kate, cousins that were inspired by their grandma. Wanting clean and non-toxic products, they have created candles to reflect memories, all while being headache and asthma free. This month there were three different scent options including: Beach Cottage (for fans of fresh + sweet & spice), Coastal Fog (for fans of woodsy), and Afterglow (for fans of citrus). Perfect for summer, I received Coastal Fog, and it might just be my favorite candle of all time. My husband isn't a big fan of candles, and he despises anything too fruity and too strong. Coastal Fog, while having a decent scent throw, isn't overpowering, and offers a woodsy smell that is natural and enjoyable. I'm picking up on the amber and sandalwood notes the most, and I also can pick out the hints of cedar and smoke. It's been creating an ambient and relaxing sensation, and I am extremely happy with the 16 oz size and the overall burn of this candle.

I love the fact that this box features a different candle maker each month. Not only do we receive a background story on each candle maker, but we also received a coupon code, and a QR code for easy re-purchase.

Now for the secret item!

Three Ships Dew Drops Mushroom Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Serum – Retail Value $12

 

Summer is upon us, and so is the need for all of the hydration my skin can get. Finally, it is sunny in Minnesota and my skin is in desperate need of some help. As a beauty enthusiast, I have tried more than my fair share of serums, but I can't say I've tried one that lists mushroom as the first ingredient. A bit slimy, this serum is a tiny bit thicker than most, but rubbed in and dried nicely. Incorporating hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, this serum was the 2021 winner of the "Best Serum for Dry Skin" in SELF magazine. This deluxe sample had enough serum to use for the better part of a week, and my sun-soaked skin definitely appreciated it. Feeling more supple and soft than when I started out, I would be interested to see how this works in the long term and may have to try it out.

Was This Box Worth It?

The Cost: $38

Vellabox hit it out of the park this month. Small-batch candles are where it's at for me, and though they are more expensive, are definitely worth the health benefits and clean furnace filter! While all of this month's candle descriptions sounded lovely, I am so happy I received Coastal Fog, as it is a scent both my husband and I could enjoy. The serum was a fun and useful inclusion and is something I would like to explore further in the future. Besides loving the candle and serum, we also found ourselves enjoying the included Spotify "Beach Days" playlist. Seemingly perfect to celebrate our first week of summer vacation, we were happy to bring on The Beach Boys and Sheryl Crow. Overall, I felt this was a lovely and relaxing curation that will be an asset to all of the carefree summer days to come. I can't wait to see what next month's theme will be!

I’m super interested in this subscription but I’m equally confused. Can you please explain the pricing? I even went to the Website and it is just as confusing. So the tier you purchased is between $29-$38 a month? Do you not know exactly what you will be charged each month, just somewhere between those amounts? I just don’t understand and there’s no way to find out without creating an account with them which is super annoying. Even the FAQs on the site don’t explain the pricing. Do you mind giving a little more information please? Thanks!

You can also just purchase the candle by itself for those same prices, choosing exactly which fragrance you prefer, but you don’t get the free gift. Hope that helps!

Thanks for reading JOJOB! This month I received the 16 oz candle subscription which includes the 16 oz candle and serum. The price for that tier is $38.00/month. The 8 oz candle and gift is $22, and the 4 oz. candle and gift is $14 like Zo had mentioned. I thought I had updated all the pricing, but for some reason it reverted back to what it was previously. Sorry about the confusion! Any other questions, please feel free to reach out!

The prices listed above are outdated. Subscription prices are based on candle size and include shipping:
4 oz. – $14
8 oz. – $22
16 oz. – $38

I sub to the 8 oz. size. I seem to burn a candle enough days that the 8 oz lasts just about one month until the next one arrives.

Thanks for helping her out, ZO! Sorry about the outdated pricing. I thought I had it fixed, but for some reason it went back to the old prices. Will update ASAP! Thanks again! ❤
