Luxor Box Review November 2016
Luxor Box Review November 2016
Luxor Box is one of those subscriptions you need to experience at least once. Yes, a yearly subscription is obviously preferred, but if the price point is a little out of your comfort zone, you should splurge at least once a year. The products we receive in this box are gorgeous……all of them. They are items I would never go and purchase for myself but am so happy to receive.
Luxor Box Details
If you aren’t familiar with Luxor Box it is described as “Luxurious Discoveries”. Every-other-month they curate a selection of 5-9 full-size, hand-picked, products with a value of $275+ per delivery. They like to feature unique and up-and-coming brands. Their surprise selections will range from high-end spa products, top-shelf beauty products, jewelry, apparel, home accessories and unique treasures from around the world. This box was provided complimentary for review.
Here’s a look at the gorgeous items we received this month:
Halcyon Days Zebra Print Black & Palladium Pendant – Value $150
Let these Zebra print pendants do the talking. Statement pieces for the fashion savvy, these unique and glamorous accessories will never go unnoticed!
This is a prime example of an item I would never purchase for myself but am so happy to have. This pendant is gorgeous and unique. It will look amazing with a simple black tee, distressed jeans, and cognac booties. But, you could also dress it up.
Cote Seaside Holiday Set – Value $64
An inspired collection of three perfectly balanced shades that embody everything we love about storybook seaside holidays: days that shimmer; nights that sparkle; and time well spent reviving our spirits. this limited edition holiday set features a lush, cream-finish red that pops (no. 26); a bronze-gold that shimmers (no. 45); and a crushed-ice silver that glitters (no. 109).
I love receiving polish in my boxes, but I get even more excited to see it in my Winter boxes. There’s something really nice about a pretty new pedicure right before Christmas or New Years.
Rose et Marius The 13 Christmas Desserts of Provence Candle Set – Value $40
Normally I don’t like candles unless they come in their own holder…..but…..these smell amazing! I honestly can’t stop smelling them. I want to burn them right now, but I also want to save them because they are THAT good. The top notes are nougat black and white nougat, the middle note is gingerbread, and the base notes are dried dates and figs.
Dartington Beehive Votive in Amber – Value $20
This hand made glass Votive is a distinctive combination of form and colour. Supplied in a smart gift tube it makes a great gift and will make a real impression in any home.
I’m not a huge fan of this color, but other than that I love this votive.
Etiquette “Charming Trio” 2-Pair Sock Set – Value $40
Traditional Mid-Calf. Made from the finest 60/2 gassed mercerized Italian cotton yarns for a royal fit, feel & finish. These socks are the epitome of luxury, available in several classic color ways.
How cute are these socks!! Oh my goodness, the little ruffle at the top, and the shimmery fabric! So darn cute.
Kosta Boda Contrast Ornament – Value $50
The popular Contrast series was begging to have a holiday element. Anna Ehrner worked with talented glasses blowers in the Kosta hot-shop to develop an ornament for this collection. The iconic swirls of Contrast are the perfect holiday accent, and are available in four complementary color ways. Mouth blown, lead free, and made in Kosta Sweden.
This ornament is absolutely gorgeous, but it’s just not practical for my tree this year. I have 6 children coming over to help me decorate and this definitely wouldn’t last through the kid tornado. I can’t decide if I should keep it for another year or gift it.
Luxor Box Review November 2016 – Final Thoughts
The value we receive in our Luxor Boxes always amazes me. They really do find the most unique items from the best brands. But, if I am being totally honest, this box might be a little too luxe for my taste. That’s strictly a personal observation, I know that some subscribers are going to think it is perfect. I love the polish, and the necklaces, and the candles, oh….and the adorable socks, but the home decor items are just a little out of my style comfort zone. On the other hand, can you imagine what an amazing gift this would be! My Stepmom would LOVE something like this. Even though this isn’t my favourite Luxor Box, I still love the subscription itself. Some of my favourite subscription box items have come from this box. I will always be a fan.
