My Luxe Box has arrived! This is my first time getting a Luxe Box by Loose Button! I think i was being depressed one gloomy day in January and impulse ordered this online. For all of you who don’t know what it is, you pay $12 + tax/month for a box of surprise deluxe-sized sample items. The company also gives you a tracking number so you know where your package is and when you can expect to get it! I got a beautiful red box and when I slid it open, there’s tissue paper with a sticker that says “Made for Whitney.” How personalized!
I opened up the tissue paper and this is what I received:
They give a little card that has a description of each item plus the price of the full size, which was very useful.
The first product is the daily microfoliant by Dermalogica. It’s a “rice-based enzyme powder” to exfoliate the skin. I never tried anything of this sort for so I’m quite excited. I have been using St. Ive’s Apricot Exfoliant for the past many months now, so I’m glad to have a new item in my routine! The price is $72 for a full size of 75g. I received 13g, so my sample would worth approximately $12.48. I checked makeupalley reviews and it scored 4.2/5.
The next item was a full sized China Glaze nail polish. I don’t own any red nail polish so this was a good color to add to my collection. I received “Go Crazy Red” – the color is a red-shimmery shade.It is worth $8.
The next item is a tiny cute bottle of Silk Infusion by Chi. It’s a hair treatment. I straighten my hair often and just found some threatening split ends in my hair couple days ago, so I’m excited to try this. Since it’s so tiny, I’ll savour it and only use it when I go out. The full size is 50mL- $15, 150 mL-$25, 300 mL-$42. I received 15mL.
Lastly, I received a deluxe perfume sample- L’AIR by Nina Ricci. I was worried it would be those tiny pumps you can get from any department store, but it came in a cute bottle. I don’t wear perfume, but the packaging was really cute.The perfume is a blend of “magnolia, freesia, and Bulgarian rose,” and it does smell quite nice! I’ll probably where it for special occasions. The full size of 50mL costs $80, and 100mL costs $110. (Why is perfume so expensive?!) The bottle makes a nice display on my desk.
Overall, I do think I did get my money’s worth, and it felt like receiving a birthday present in Febraury. However, I went online to see what other people got, and some people got 5-6 items, whereas I only had 4. Some also received Benefit’s Sun Beam which I would’ve loved to try. I only bought a monthly subscription to see what the hype was about, and I can see why people love it. I probably will get a March luxe box to please myself.
