Show & Tell | The View Special Edition Fantasy Box

viewBoxSlider_IANI’ve tried a bunch of different adult subscription boxes over the past three years and Fantasy Box is still by far, the best one I’ve come across. (You can read my original review of Fantasy Box here.) Not only is their packaging gorgeous and well designed, their boxes are expertly curated and feature full size products & lingerie (gimme!) I also really like how they help guide you through your Fantasy Box experience through fun, sexy prompts that help encourage communication with your partner.

So, when I found out that Fantasy Box had created a exclusive, gift box in honour of Valentine’s Day for the show The View, naturally my curiosity was peaked. The View Platinum Spa Box features a collection of sweetly scented products, a gorgeous lingerie set, candles and other goodies to help transform your home into a romantic spa retreat. (watch the clip from The View here!) Thanks to the lovely people at Fantasy Box who kindly sent me my own View Box to enjoy, I’m excited to show you what’s inside.

IMG_0098Created with a romantic evening in mind, The View Box is available in three different options based on the colour of lingerie that’s included: Sweetness (blue), Romance (red) and Decadence (black) Although my inner goth tends to gravitate towards black lingerie, I fell in love with the gorgeous periwinkle coloured negligee featured in the “Sweetness” option. It’s super pretty. How could I not?!

In true Fantasy Box style, when you open your box you’ll be greeted by a set of glossy, instruction cards that are designed to help guide you through your spa fantasy.

So, what’s inside? Lots of good stuff! The View Box includes a pair of sexy stockings,  Sliquid coconut lime verbena sensual massage oil, Kama Sutra “Honey Dust” kissable body power & “Body Souffle,” Jimmyjane Cocoa + Fig Afterglow Massage Candle, a sachet of tea lights, rose petals & a lingerie set by Coquette which features a babydoll negligee and matching thong. Everything is full-size. Everything is gorgeous & delicious smelling!

IMG_0109 IMG_0121I was really, really impressed with the product selection offered in this box. Everything smells amazing and is surprisingly multi-functional.

I’m a huge fan of Kama Sutra’s body products so I was super excited to discover that they’d included two of my favourites: the Honey Dust and Body Souffle (a rich, moisturizing body butter.)

As a long time user of Honey Dust, I typically go for the classic scent which smells like a mixture of honey and jasmine. However, the Strawberry Dreams scent is also really nice. It smells delicately like strawberries without being sicky-sweet. Dust the powder on your partner and lick it off (it tastes good!) or use it as a light fragrance & dust some on before a night out (like I do.)

The Chocolate Creme Brûlée Body Souffle is another multi-tasking winner. This rich cream not only looks & smells like an actual dessert, it’s works great for massage or as a body moisturizer (I love to use on my legs after shaving!)

I’m also kind of enthralled by the the Jimmyjane Cocoa + Fig candle. I love how it comes incased in a chic white porcelain jar. Not only does it smell awesome (a mix of fruit, vanilla and spice), it’s a massage candle which means it’s designed to be dribbled on your partner and massaged into the skin. It pairs really nicely with the light, tropical scent of the coconut verbena massage oil.

However, my favourite item in my View Box has to be the lingerie (surprise, surprise.) This baby doll and thong set by Coquette is as pretty as it is comfortable. The detailing is gorgeous and it fits great. This is the kind of piece that I could easily see myself wearing in front of someone else… or just to lounge solo.

IMG_0106The only thing I didn’t completely love about this box were the rose petals. Although they made for some great photographs, I’m just not a rose petal kind of girl. Never have been, probably never will be.

With that said, my sophomore Fantasy Box experience was awesome and totally exceeded my expectations. I loved the mix of products I already use and adore (Kama Sutra, Sliquid) + new discoveries (the massage candle.) Throw in some pretty, well fitting lingerie and I am a very happy camper. Although I don’t currently have anyone to enjoy this box with other than myself, I would definitely consider purchasing one as a fun wedding or shower gift.

Update: Fantasy Box is currently doing a little “spring cleaning” and offering the Platinum Spa box that was featured on The View for $49.  Yep, 75% off the $204 price tag (a crazy good deal!) They’re also offering it in a bundle with a sexy French Maid fantasy box (couldn’t resist the “Spring Cleaning” theme, haha) for just $99 (Platinum View and Classic Maid)
