August Robb Vices Box

Robb Vices is a monthly subscription box focused on exceptional products, food, accessories, etc. Each box is curated and comes with a booklet that tells the story of the items in the box. This box is for those who enjoy the finer things and appreciate the history or story behind it. I only say that because this box is not inexpensive. The price is $89.95 per month plus shipping. I subscribe to the Robb Report magazine and very much enjoy reading it. If you subscribe to the magazine they offer a discount on the box. I researched previous boxes and liked what I saw so I subscribed.

Price: $74.95 per month plus shipping w/discounts for 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.

The Good:

Products: The products are high end, artisan and great quality. 

Information: The include booklet is a wealth of information on the products. 

Referral Program: Refer 3 friends and get a free box. 

Alcohol: Sometimes they include alcohol which I'm a big fan of. 

The Not So Good:

Price: The price is high for a monthly box of surprise items.

Auto-Renew. I don't care much for auto-renew especially on a box with a high price tag. 

Contents of the Robb Vices Box:

Dirocco Carbon Fiber Eyewear in The Pennman. Value = $400?

Lillie's Q Ivory Sauce. Value = $8.00

Lillie's Q Gold Sauce. Value = $8.00

Kozlik's Horseradish mustard. Value = $6.00

Beekman 1802 Hello Sunshine Mineral Sunscreen. Value = $22.00

The total value of this box is about $444.00. The hero item in this months box are the sunglasses. They are limited edition and currently only available to Robb Vice member. Once they produce them for sale they will only make 500 of them. I really wanted to like these glasses but they are sooo not me. Since they aren't available for sale yet I had to guess on the price based on their other sunglasses. I've tried the Lillie's Q in other boxes but I think I only tried the ivory sauce. As I recall I used it for coleslaw but I didn't care much for it. I also saw you can use it as a marinade so I might try that next time. I'm pretty excited about the mustard. I checked out the Kozlik's website and it's a mustard lovers paradise!

***If you love these glasses you can get them free w/a 3 month subscription by using the code SUNSHINE*** 

Verdict: This Robb Vices box just ok. The hero item wasn't for me.

  1. I don’t think the box is worth the price even though it seems like a good bargain when prices of products are added separately. But a lot of these items may not work out for people.
