LaRitzy Box - May 2016

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

What is LaRitzy Box?: LaRitzy is a monthly subscription that sends you 4-5 full-size and luxury size products each month, with all products being vegan to help you transition to a vegan lifestyle. 

How Much is LaRitzy Box?: LaRitzy is $24.99 a month. I strangely was charged with an international transaction fee, which was very bizarre considering this is a box from the US. Each box has a guaranteed value of $60+ with some boxes having a $100+ value.

There is also a LaRitzy mini box that is $14.99/month that sends 2-3 products each month. 


I was overly excited to get my first LaRitzy! I actually purchased this mid-April but the first box didn't ship until the May boxes came around. Waiting for that is the biggest buildup possible.



LaRitzy is a very quick shipper. This box took just a few days from shipping date to arrival!


The theme for May is Summa Summa!


Info card!


Manna Kadar Lip Locked Stain (All of Me) ($24.00) - First off, the info card says this is supposed to be a Manna Kadar Bronzer/Highlighter, so I'm not sure why I received this item instead. I also am really tired of getting this Manna product. It's a wonderful lip gloss, but I have received it so many times that I am just absolutely sick of it. I definitely would have preferred getting the item listed on the information card.


Jacq's Organics Carrot Seed Face Toner ($15.00) - This is another item that is not what was listed on the information card. I saw somewhere that this was due to a misprint, but due to my not being able to find this particular product on the Jacq's website, I fear that this is an older product.


Glam Her Booth Brush (Foundation) ($8.00) - If it hasn't been made clear already, I really love rose gold brushes. I have a couple of different foundation ones, so this will be put up until one falls apart.


bellapierre Diamond Base & Top Coat ($15.00) - I don't really have much experience with base/top coat duos, but I have found that they don't really help prevent staining that can come with blue polishes. The blocking staining is my biggest concern, so this will just be used as a top coat.


This box is valued at $62, which is barely at their estimated number for each month. I would like to say it lived up to my expectations, but it definitely did not. I had intended on canceling after receiving this box but failed to do so in time, so I will still be getting the June box. I have an email in about the two items that were incorrect (either in shipping or in printing).

As always, let me know what you thought about this box in the comments.
