Luxor Box Petite is the mini-box version of the luxurious bi-monthly women’s lifestyle subscription box full of high-end products and treasures: home, body, bath, accessories, jewelry, and more! The Petite Box promises 2-4 full-size products compared to the 5-9 full-size products in the regular size box.

One of the things that I noticed about Luxor Petite Box is that the items are in their original packaging. It makes for easy gifting.

Subscribers could receive either the Revitalizing Beta Hydroxy Mask (1.7 oz, $115.00) or the Hydrating Soothing Mask (1.7 oz, $115.00). The skincare line is created by the  world renown plastic surgeon, Dr. Gerald Imber, who ranks in the top 1%. The beauty product line is free of parabens and surfactants. The line is carried in Harrods, UK.

I received the Hydrating Soothing Mask, which has aloe and licorice in it. It stung the back of my hand when I tried it for less than a minute. An hour later I can still feel the heat emanating from that spot despite washing it, putting lotion on it, and putting balm on it. The skin does feel smoother, but I am not willing to try it on my face. Did anyone else have the same experience? Maybe I am not willing to suffer for beauty!

I confess that I do not know why this is included in a woman’s high-end, luxury box. I feel it is more appropriate for Bespoke Post. I have nothing against the brand. I feel it has a more masculine feel than what I personally am seeking from this type of box.

The Traditional Leather Jotter ($41.00 on information card, on sale for $20.00) comes in either dark blue or red. I feel that if we are going to receive something that states in the brand’s description is a great gift for executives that maybe the brighter colors be selected instead. I noticed that Luxor tends to go with neutral colors.

The Leather Wrap Pen ($40.00 on information card, on sale for $20.00) is too heavy and cumbersome for my hand. The pen uses Schmidt and Parker refills and is wrapped in goatskin leather. My husband felt it was a great pen for a man. He liked the weight.

The jotter has a pocket that can hold a few extra cards. Luxor thoughtfully included a Jotter Card Refill Pack of 24 (information card $3.75, on sale for $1.88). It feels like cardstock or at very least a heavier weight paper.

It comes in a cloth holder. I am floored that this is in a woman’s luxury box. I am sure that there will be women that love it and can use it in their jobs. I am not one of them and am disappointed. Even my husband thought it came in a men’s lifestyle box.

The July Luxor Petite Box did not work out for me. I greatly disliked the July box. Others will love it. Such is the risk when purchasing a subscription box.

The items are well-packaged. The brands are upscale. The care in selecting the Jotter items is shown by including the Jotter, Jotter Card Refill, and Leather Wrap Pen.  Such is the risk when purchasing a subscription box.  The value of the box is outstanding at almost $200.00 when not using the sale prices. The Luxor Box Petite is a great way to enjoy a few items from the full-size Luxor Box.

    I agree with you. The jotter is a much better fit in a mans’s box. The full sized Luxor has both of these plus a gorgeous blue leather clutch and a nice, if not quite my style, clock. If I were subbed to this and had recieved a combo of the items not including the jotter, I would have felt pretty happy getting two such high end items at this price point. However, the jotter would just disappoint me.

      The clutch does look beautiful!

    I am sorry you received a disappointing box. I think that pen would give my hand cramps and since the pen is described as “handsome” that does denote a masculine feeling to the product.

      Thank you! Can’t win them all.
