April 2017 Vellabox review time!
If you haven’t heard, Vellabox is a subscription box that specializes in high quality candles which they send to your door every month. Every Vellabox will feature all natural, clean-burning candles made by American artisans. They’ll also be non-toxic, lead-free, and likely hand poured. There are 3 different box sizes to choose from: The Lucerna, The Ignis, and The Vivere. The Lucerna box will include one candle (approximately 4 ounces) each month with a burn time of approx. 25 hours. The Ignis box will include one candle (approximately 8 ounces) with a burn time of approx. 50 hours. Finally, The Vivere box will feature two candles (totaling approximately 12 ounces) with a burn time of approx. 75 hours. Each box will also come with a small surprise gift.
Subscriptions are $10/month (plus $2 shipping) for The Lucerna, $20/month (plus $2 shipping) for The Ignis, and $30/month (free shipping) for The Vivere. Vellabox ships only within the US at this time.
Let’s see what’s in the April 2017 “The Vivere” Vellabox!
The candles were shipped inside a bright yellow box with the Vellabox logo on top.
A peek inside!
An info card pasted to the inside lid revealed the contents of April’s box, along with brief descriptions for each item.
Each candle was wrapped in pretty fabric and tied with a white string.
Mr. B’s Luminaries Lavender Rosemary (included in Lucerna & Vivere)
Mr. B’s Essentials is a family owned company based in San Diego who produces their own lines of deodorant, candles, soap, and more. This 8 ounce jar candle is made with 100% natural biodegradable soy wax and pure, undiluted essential oils. It features a hemp wick and the soothing scents of lavender & rosemary. A great candle for creating relaxing vibes after a long day. 🙂
Mr. B’s Luminaries Lemongrass (Vivere only)
I was seriously beyond excited to see a lemongrass scented candle in April’s Vellabox! If you read here regularly, you know that lemongrass is my all time favorite scent. I absolutely ADORE it. Needless to say, this little 4 ounce travel candle smells amazing. Definitely my favorite of the two (although rosemary is another one of my favorite scents as well!).
April’s bonus gift was a packet of “Beach All You Want” mineral bath salts. It features a blend of various salts — including Hawaiian sea salt — along with tangerine oil, cedarwood oil, and other natural/cruelty free ingredients. Just swirl a handful into your bath, close your eyes, and pretend you’re relaxing on your own private beach.
I hadn’t reviewed Vellabox for quite some time, so I was happy to check them out again — and even more so once I saw that April’s box included my favorite scent EVER. 😀 The value was fair too, at $36 for both candles and not counting the bonus gift. 🙂
