Luxor Box is a luxurious bi-monthly women’s lifestyle subscription box full of high-end products and treasures: home, body, bath, accessories, jewelry, and more! The Luxor Box contains 5-9 full-size items.  Luxor Box also offers Luxor Box Petite, a mini-version, that promises 2-4 full-size items. Luxor Box describes itself as a delightful experience. I agree!  I reviewed the January Luxor Box Petite and am eager to see what is in the full-size box.

It's here!

The regular-size box went on a lovely tour around the city before finally landing on my door step. It was worth the wait!

The Throw

Luxor Box used an oversized box to accommodate the throw. The throw is the second spoiler for the January Box.

I removed the scarf before taking the photo to show what was underneath the scarf. I am impressed with their packing abilities.

The Mottahedeh Snowflake Mug ($45) is the first spoiler for the box. Wilson Bentley, a farmer, took pictures of the snow that caught National Geographic’s attention. The mug design is a reproduction of his photomicrographs. Mottahedeh is known for its luxury ceramic antique reproductions. It’s a beautiful breakable mug that will be kept far away from Mr. Butterfingers, age 16.

The Aztec Hot Chocolate will keep you warm on those cool/cold nights. Known as the “Gift of the Gods,”  the single origin South American cocoa beans adds bountiful flavor to the hot chocolate. The tin is beautiful! The hot chocolate is packaged in a resealable bag. It’s a warm, delicious drink that is perfect for a snowflake mug!

The Ivory Cashmere Socks are made in Italy. The socks are warm and soft. They are a thicker than a regular sock, but not as thick as a winter wool sock. They fit well the theme. I am very happy with the socks!

The Pura Botanica Cream Smoother and Bath Salts were packaged in a sturdy bag.

The Pura Botnaica Lend a Hand Creme Smoother ($10) has West African shea butter and vanilla in it. The packaging is adorable. I love the turtle on it! The creme has a light vanilla scent and rubs in easily. I am already a fan of the brand, shea butter, and vanilla. The creme is a big hit with me. I  marked $10.00 instead of $12.00 as listed on the card because it has gone down in price. It states on the Luxor Box website that the MSRP listed is from the time of acquirement. Sounds fair to me.

My candle scents and bath infusions match! The Just Because Candle Tins ($13 each) are 100% soy candles infused with essential oils in a beautiful tin. I did not lit the Fulfill Mint Candle because I received and lit the same scent in the Luxor Petit Review. The burn time is up to 21 hours. I have burned both candles and loved the scents. They are light and not overpowering providing a “warm & Cozy” Spa Experience.

I am excited to see the bath salts ($11 each). I’ve received them in subscription boxes and from friends before. Both bath infusions smell wonderful to me. I will be using the Pick Me Up bath salts in a few days.

The Jules Smith Crochet Tube Scarf ($45) is a beautiful ombre scarf that can be worn as an infinity scarf or open. It is incredibly soft. I did not experience the scarf shedding on the white blanket. I am going to give my sister my second scarf. The scarf is warm and provides a beautiful neutral accent to an outfit.

Bliss Home and Design has been curating luxury wares since 1972 and is a source of high end furnishings. The White Faux Fox Throw measures 50″ x 60″. It’s almost long enough for me to lay under and long enough for a 7-year-old boy. The other two variations of the throw are beaver and dark chocolate mink.  It’s a warm, comfortable blanket to use in the family room or as an extra blanket on cold nights. I suspect that I will see J, age 7, using it. I was hoping for the chocolate mink because of the children, cats, and dogs. The white throw is beautiful, so I am hoping that my request of keeping it away from the pets will be honored! At least until the Super Bowl so I can cuddle with my husband!

HS Update: If you are in LOVE with throw, check out this deal!

I initially ordered the petite box. I ended up ordering the full-size box after receiving the December Special Edition box. I knew I would love whatever was in the box in addition to the mug spoiler. The items in the Luxor Box lived up to the theme of Warm and Cozy. It’s hard to pick a favorite item! Each piece feels luxurious and unique in its own way. The experience of opening the box continues to live on in the items because of their functionality.

Both boxes are perfect. I would have been content receiving the petit box only because I did not feel like I was missing out. Ssh! Don’t tell my husband.

March boxes are available for purchase. Don’t delay! Be sure to read the January Luxor Box Petite Review if you haven’t already!

    Wow that is such a great box! Luxor hit it out of the park!

    • PA Anna

      They certainly did!

  • Susie

    This was my first Luxor box and I loved it. I got the brown throw. I sat it down for 5 minutes to put the rest of the box up. I told my husband that this blanket must stay away from the Ws. He was laughing. I turned to see why and all the little dang wieners, Wendell, Willie, Waylon and Winnie were already cuddled up on it. Sigh. This blanket is W approved.

    • PA Anna

      I can picture it in my mind. The Ws are adorable! Daisy, our English Shepherd, has already laid on it it with her babies (toys).

  • AngelaR

    This box is amazing. I don’t know how they can top this box. But then again I always love warm and cozy boxes. 🙂

    • PA Anna

      Warm and cozy boxes are my favorite too!
