Luxily Boutique Box is a curated lifestyle subscription box filled with the best in fashion, beauty, and home. Luxily Boutique Box was founded to give women a positive, uplifting gift box each month and they strive to find the most fun, hard-to-find gifts to put into each box. In addition to a bi-monthly subscription box, Luxily Boutique also offers curated gift boxes and an online store.

This is my second Luxily Boutique Box. My first box was 'Pineapple Express' in June, and it was fantastic. Check out my review here.

The August theme was "Sweet Escape". No spoilers were released, but on Instagram, Luxily posted the following:
If you work, or are a stay at home mom, or a college student- this one is for all of you! Total #girlboss!
If you work, or stay at home, or go to college... well doesn't that pretty much cover everyone?! This hint did nothing to help figure out what might be inside the box. Usually I can guess some of the items, but this time, I had no idea.  

The product card is affixed to the inside of the lid, which is a super cool idea. It can easily be removed and saved, if you need it. The card also reveals the theme for October's box (see more details at the end of this post).

First look

S'well Quartz Finish 9oz Water Bottle ($25)
I have wanted a S'well bottle for soooo long and they are expensive (this 9oz version is $38 CDN). This one is a pretty purple, but it's very small. It might be great for taking my morning coffee to work. Liquids stay hot for 12 hours or cold for 24 hours.

Calliope Hair Tie Set ($10)
The write up on these hair ties says they are 100% vegan free, which makes no sense at all, since "vegan free" technically means non-vegan. I'm not vegan, and I've never thought about it much, but I didn't realize vegan fabric was a thing. It does make sense that those who are vegan for animal welfare concerns would want to avoid silk, wool, and other animal sourced materials. As for these hair ties... if you are a regular read you will know that I hate ribbon hair ties. I use them for packing and travel. They are great at holding rolled clothing without causing creases.

The Handbag Raincoat Midi ($28)
This is such a random item for an August box. I think this is one of those items you don't know you need until you have it. I walk to work, so I might actually get some use out of it, if I can get past the fact that it looks kind of silly! They come in mini, midi, and maxi. This is what it looks like on a handbag:
So stylish! ;-)

The Social Type Muah! Matchbox ($6)
These matches are cute, for sure, but it's another random item that doesn't fit the theme. 

Well-Kept Screen Cleansing Towelettes ($6)
This was a bonus item included as a thank you to subscribers. I already have a couple packs and they are great. I use them on my laptop, tablet, phone, and even eyeglasses.

The August "Sweet Escape" box from Luxily Boutique Box included five items, valued at $75 US. I'm mixed on this box. Luxily Boutique Box costs $49.95 US, plus $12 shipping. With exchange, I paid $67.22 Canadian (at the time I subscribed, shipping was free). The $75 US value translates to about $98 Canadian. The value is definitely there, but I don't see how the products relate to a "Sweet Escape" theme. Some of the items seem out of place for the theme and season. The products are all nice on their own, and the packaging and presentation are top notch, so I will be sticking around to see what October brings. 

October's theme is "Bestie Box":
Octobers box is filled with lots of fun things your bestie would send you!!! Lots of etsy artist in this box!
The retail value is estimated at $74 US.
