Curateur Review Winter 2021

Curateur is a luxury subscription box curated by editor and designer, Rachel Zoe. Each edition features at least 5 of the season’s most coveted fashion and beauty finds valued at over $500. To subscribe, style enthusiasts can choose from two subscription options: a Seasonal Membership at $99.99 per quarter, or an Annual Membership at $349.99 per year. They kindly sent us this box for review.

It’s a very sad day here at the AYOB office…….the seasonal Curateur box is no longer. Or at least I think that’s the case. I haven’t actually received any updates/info on this but I wasn’t able to find it on the Curateur website. It looks like they have changed their offering to a shopping type membership. I will definitely miss this seasonal box as it was often one of my favorite boxes to receive.

Here’s a closer look at the Winter 2021 Curateur box…….

THIRDLOVE Satin Robe ($70)

*choice item (robe or clutch)

Whether worn for lounging or layered over your favorite basics, this satin robe will make you feel so much more luxurious.

First up we have one of our choice items. As per usual they were kind enough to send me all of the options. Subscribers could have received this or the clutch below. For me personally, the robe is a great choice as I was in need of a new robe to lounge in and this one is absolutely gorgeous!

JJ WINTERS Nikki Clutch ($79)

*choice item (robe or clutch)

Carry this metallic mock-croc clutch to all your celebrations this season and give any look a glamorous upgrade.

  • Color: Platinum Croc
  • Fabric: Vegan Leather
  • Dimensions: 6.75 in H X 12.25 in W X 1 in D

Our second choice item is this beautiful metallic clutch. It’s not something I would use often, but it’s the perfect accessory for holiday parties so I’m happy to add it to my collection. How cute would this be with a simple black jumpsuit and gold jewelry?!

JENNIFER ZEUNER Gold Allie Necklace ($132)

*choice item (gold or silver)

The nostalgic herringbone chain remains a favorite, and this updated version offers a fresh take on the style.

  • Length: 15” + 2” extender
  • Color/Material: 14k yellow gold plated brass

Speaking of gold jewelry……here we have our next choice item. Subscribers could have received this gold necklace or the silver version below. I’ve actually been wanting a necklace just like this. It’s a classic style and reminds me of something my Mom used to wear. This is a piece I will have in my collection for years to come, and……the perfect accessory for holiday outfits. I absolutely LOVE it!

JENNIFER ZEUNER Silver Allie Necklace ($132)

*choice item (gold or silver)

The nostalgic herringbone chain remains a favorite, and this updated version offers a fresh take on the style.

  • Length: 15” + 2” extender
  • Color/Material: Silver plated brass

And here we have the silver version of the necklace. I’m more of a gold girl but the silver necklace is just as pretty. And….my jewelry collection is lacking silver peices so this is a welcomed addition.

U BEAUTY Resurfacing Compound ($228)

Replacing up to six products in one, this multitasker will become the new hero of your routine as it brightens, tightens, and tones your complexion. Smoother, brighter and revitalized-looking skin begins to emerge within only 3-6 days. Pores look diminished, skin appears to brighten as dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles visibly fade.

Oh……how nice does this sound?! And just look at the value! It’s more than double the cost of the box. I’ve said this before, but I have really come to appreciate the beauty products we receive in our Curateur boxes. Especially the skincare items because it’s thanks to this subscription that I have discovered some of my “can’t live without” skincare products.

THULA TULA Ivory African Zebra Blanket ($129)

In a chic winter white zebra print, this ultra-soft (and ethically-sourced) throw blanket will envelop you in warmth and style this season.

  • Color: Ivory Tonal Zebra Print
  • Material: 100% Super Soft Acrylic
  • Dimensions: 130 x 170 cm
  • Sustainably and ethically crafted blankets made in South Africa

We just moved in to our new house and I will be decorating in the New Year so I am ALL about home decor items right now. This throw is SO pretty and it fits my color scheme perfectly. I used to be all about grey, but now I’m loving beige and creamy tones.

KJAER WEIS Im-Possible Mascara ($32)

From its organic, nourishing ingredients to its refillable, recycled packaging, this lush mascara is a total innovator the the beauty game. The versatile brush features a curved side for endlessly buildable volume and a flat side for length, definition and detail. Lashes stay silky-soft and resilient all day— and authentic to the real you.

  • Refillable, sustainable Red Iconic case made from 50% recycled plastic and infinitely recyclable aluminum

I am desperately in need of a new mascara so this arrived at the perfect time. I should have thrown my current one away a few months ago. It’s always so nice to have new makeup. It’s kind of like a fresh start for your face routine.

Curateur Review Winter 2021 – Final Thoughts

Well…..I have to say….I am SO sad that this will be my last time sharing Curatuer with you. I’ve really come to love this subscription. Yes, they’ve had a few “misses” over the last couple years but they’ve also curated some amazing boxes. There’s one (or two) in particular that will go down in history as some of my all-time favorite boxes. The one with the beautiful fedora hat for example. But, all good things must come to an end….I guess. And for a final box, they did a great job. It’s the perfect mixture of cozy wintery peices and dressy holiday vibes. The Winter 2021 Curatuer box is absolutely wonderful!
