I received this box courtesy of Vellabox.com in exchange for my honest review.
Hello to my loyal readers and faithful followers. I am attempting to try something new. The big trend on You Tube right now seems to be unboxing videos. Most are Ipsy and other makeup subscriptions. However, because of this trend companies like Barkbox and others have become known commercially too.
My 1st review however, is for none of those subscriptions but rather for Vellabox.
Vellabox is an all-natural, artisan subscription candle box company based out of San Diego, CA. All of their candles are high quality, non-toxic, lead free, and hand poured by artisan candle makers. They offer three different monthly subscription boxes great for oneself or for gifting. As a gift, you may chose a three, six, or 12 month options. The different boxes are as follows:
- Lucerna ($10/month) - one 4oz candle and a special gift that total 25 hrs of burn time
- Ignis ($20/month) - one 8oz candle and a special gift that totals 50 hrs of burn time
- Vivere ($30/month) - one 4oz and one 8oz candle plus a special gift that totals 75 hours of burn time
Upon opening the box, I soon discovered I was given the Ignis box to sample and review. The 8oz candle was packaged in a beautiful mint green gift bag. It had an adorable printing of cacti and succulents. The candle created by Vacant Wheel was a wonderfully smelling.
It's a soy candle and the sent for June was Cactus Flowers: Flowering Desert Succulents. I have not gotten around to light it to test the throw yet, however I shall inform my readers of that when it does happen.
As for the bonus item?
The lip balm with SPF 15 was made by Aloe Up, a company in Eden Prairie, MN. The one downside to this lip balm was that I wish it had a scent to it as well. Will I use it? Yes. But it wont be my first go-to. That's reserved for my Burt's Bees.
