Southern Mom Loves: Box of Style Winter 2019 Edition Unboxing + $25 Discount Code!

Box of Style Winter 2019 Edition Unboxing + $25 Discount Code!

Thursday, November 21, 2019

I was provided with a box to help facilitate this post; All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links. 

Hey, guys! I'm back with an unboxing of the always fabulous Box of Style by Rachel Zoe! This is the Winter box and it is amazing!!! Not only does my box smell good, but it's also silky and sparkly. Can we say diamonds, anyone?! Keep reading for the unboxing and I also have a code to get you $25 off a box!!! Let's unbox it, shall we?

If you haven't seen any of my past BOS postsBox of Style is the #1 luxury subscription box curated by stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe. It's a luxury fashion, beauty, and lifestyle subscription box delivered 4 times a year.

Each season, the box contains at least 5 statement staples to elevate your everyday look. It's a bit more expensive than some of the other subscription boxes out there at $99.99 quarterly or $349.99 annually ($74.99 quarterly or $324.99 annually with the discount code), but there are a few reasons I'm fully on board:

  1. Quality. Everything in the box is guaranteed to be a top-tier product. You won't be getting any cheap jewelry that turns your skin green or fall-apart clothing pieces.
  2. Style. Everything in the box will be stylish and now. Not the "trendy" kind of now that will be out of fashion in a hot minute, but versatile pieces that will elevate your own style, and you don't even have to go shopping.
  3. Value. You are guaranteed to receive at least $400 in product for under $100. This season's box is worth $458!
  4. Curated Luxury. It's nice to treat yourself to luxury items, but it's also nice to have someone else wade through the minefield of advertisements and false claims to find good products that are actually a treat to use instead of a waste of money. Thank you, Rachel! Some past products have come from Kate Sommerville, Ettika, Mara Hoffman, Miansai, La Mer, Tatcha, Sunday Riley, Oribe, Kopari, Caudalie, & Eddie Borgo. 'Nuff said.
  5. Logic. I can get an annual subscription for $324.99. That's $27.08 a month. Would I be willing to drop less than $30 a month on myself to get these amazing boxes 4x a year? Yes. Yes, I would. ;) 
  6. Gifting. This box would also make an amazing holiday or birthday gift for $75!
When you open the box each season, there's always a booklet inside telling you about each item, why it was chosen for the season, and styling or use tips.

It also gives discount codes for the included brands. :)

  • Ethics Supply Co.- HOLIDAY for 15% off of your order, valid 12/1/19 - 3/1/20.

The Winter box includes 5 luxe finds to keep your winter glamorous and cozy and this one has a retail value of $458.

Now to dive into the actual box. Opening it is like opening a gift! I get so dang excited, it's unreal.

The first item out is the AF by Andrea Fohrman Diamond Pendant ($200).

"Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds! I am so in love with this diamond-encrusted pendant necklace-it's gorgeous on its own or mixed with other gold necklaces as a layering piece. Style it with silver, rose gold, or any of your everyday favorites. Don't be afraid to mix metals!" -xoRZ

This necklace comes protected in a screened black velvet bag. It is a genuine diamond pendant of gold-plated sterling silver. It's 16" with a 2" extender, so you can adjust it to your length preference.

Delicate jewelry is in right now and I absolutely adore this one. It's so sparkly!!!

Next out is the Rachel Zoe x LORAC Hollywood Glamour Mini Palette ($15).

"I'm beyond excited to offer members a choice between two beautiful eyeshadow palettes this season. Both are part of my new LORAC Cosmetics collection and provide a range of buildable colors that can be worn anywhere from brunch, the office, to a big night out. Whether you prefer warm bronzes and golds or inky blacks and silvers, you'll reach for this all season." -xoRZ

This palette is small but mighty. I chose the warmer palette and the colors are ridiculously beautiful!!! The box also says that the new diamond shine formula contains 100% certified authentic diamonds. What?! I feel so fancy!

I've never tried LORAC eyeshadow, but when swatching these, the colors were soft and buttery (not powdery) and the colors were very saturated, so this palette should blend well and also last you a while.


 Next is the Ethics Supply Co. Starry Night Candle ($38).

"I love the cozy ambiance a candle creates-whether you're at work, at home in the kitchen, or taking a bath. Starry Night from Ethics Supply Co. smells divine but not overpowering and looks so chic anywhere." -xoRZ

When I opened the box, I could smell this candle immediately and it is truly such a gorgeous scent! It's kind of a warm woodsy + musky scent but it also smells sharp, like cold night air. It's incredible and I can't wait for an excuse to enjoy it.

 Next is the Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme ($55).

"I am a longtime fan of Estée Lauder and this Revitalizing Supreme + moisturizer not only helps smooth and firm skin but also gives an incredible dose of hydration perfect in cold weather. It also contains moringa extract and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture all day." -xoRZ

My skin gets incredibly dry in winter so I need a product that deeply moisturizes. Estée Lauder is a big name in higher-end skincare, so I know this one won't disappoint. I'm at the bottom of my favorite Sunday Riley moisturizer, so I can't wait to switch this into my routine.

 Last out is the Maison Du Soir Floral Robe ($150).

"I'm so excited about this robe from Maison Du Soir because it features a perfect neutral floral print that you can wear casual or dressy. It's an ideal addition to your wardrobe that will add flair to all of your favorite staples." xoRZ

This robe. I don't know if you're seeing what I'm seeing, but these colors and the floral print are gorgeous. It's a crepe de chine, which means it feels both silky and light, but oddly heavy. It flows beautifully and is one of my favorite fabrics to wear.

I don't know if I'll be wearing this as outerwear but I will absolutely be wearing this around the house. I couldn't resist slipping it on immediately and it feels amazing. Snapped a selfie for you. 😉

So that was Box of Style, Winter 2019! I think this is one of my favorite boxes to date. I loved each and every item, so it was a bit like an early Christmas for me! If you need gifts and stocking stuffers, this box has a great selection. You could also gift the whole thing for one amazing gift.

Also, members get exclusive access to the Box of Style Boutique, expertly curated with the best pieces at special prices including beauty, home and entertaining, jewelry, clothing, and accessories that can be purchased a-la-carte or bundled for even more savings. I know from experience that you can get some amazing deals here, so it's a great added benefit to the box subscription.

As promised, I have a great discount code! Use the code WINTER25 for $25 off here:

As always, once they're sold out, they're gone and you'll have to wait for the Winter Edit or the Spring box. Until next time! XOXO
