Learn What’s Inside the Luxe & Luminous Collection Summer 2022 Box 

Subscribers delighted in the items we hand-picked or created to fit the season’s ‘Enjoy the Moment’ theme. Plus, they had a good time connecting in our L&L Facebook group. 


Hello, everyone! 

The theme we chose for the Summer 2022 Luxe & Luminous collection subscription box was “Enjoy the Moment.”  

In that spirit, the Sisters From AARP team that curates this box shared ideas and inspiration about everything from mindfulness meditation to mocktails to making your outdoor space a five-star retreat. It’s all in this quarter’s Luxe & Luminous Magazine. How important is taking me-time to find joy in the present? Here’s sisterly wisdom from the welcome letter:  

The critical, overlooked emergency warning signal that we need to recharge is that we feel guilty about or undeserving of relaxation. Sis, that’s not common sense offering a reality check. That’s anxiety lying to us. 

We need to build breaks into each hour, each day. If you don’t think you can take 10 minutes, then take 15 minutes. Because it means you’re really tense.  

The Luxe & Luminous team selected the contents of your summer box — and the contents of this magazine — to help you relax, release, relate and savor all the joys this sunny season has to offer.  

And many in our L&L circle of friends savored every moment of the season! 

The Joy of Connecting: Inside the Luxe & Luminous Club Facebook Group 


What we really love to see is our box subscriber sister-friends sharing the moments of delight when they get their shipping notice, when the box arrives, when they discover the surprises inside and when they share how they put those goodies to use.  

For instance, one creative member keeps her growing collection of our signature gold-tone lapel pins attached to their inspirational-quote-card backing, then displays them in textural, earth-toned frames as tabletop decor.  

Another discovered that the calming lavender-and-chamomile aromatherapy mist from our spring box felt soothing on her scalp.  

Another sister posted a “birthday shenanigans” video of herself at a luxurious seaside location. In it, she enjoyed a beverage, felt the wind in her hair and scanned the blue waves while wrapped in our regal purple satin robe — also a spring item. Members enthusiastically join in celebrating someone’s special day! 

In our private L&L Facebook group, here’s what a few of those commenters said: 

“Love it! This one is even better than the first one. It’s like gifting myself with a surprise box of goodies.” 

“I grow hibiscus flowers, so I was very thrilled to see the tea powder. The tea is so tasty. Love the summer box and the many products by Black woman–owned companies!” 

“I received my box today. I am going to open it as a ‘surprise’ and relaxing moment on Friday night. Self-care night.” 

“This is my third box. While I shared items with family and friends from boxes one and two, I’m keeping EVERYTHING in this box.” 

“They [the boxes] are really fun. This motivates me to treat myself more often.” 

“I’m not a hoarder, but I’m keeping the empty boxes.” 

“I reuse mine as gift boxes.” 

“My sister and I opened our boxes together yesterday and were very pleased.” 

“Received my box! Couldn’t wait to get home, especially after the day I’ve had. #feelslikeChristmas.” 

“I received my first box. Love it and everything inside it. Even the box was beautiful and colorful. Inspirational magazine, useful tools, beautifully selected items that invoke lovely relaxing emotions of pleasure. I feel like it’s my birthday.”
