Happy November! Two weeks ago, I had my first proper manicure (in the past 2-3 years?!) and it was done by a local beauty and nail blogger/artist Sunday Beauty. My hands haven’t been pampered properly and I had that satisfying feeling of watching my cuticles getting peeled off, and also my nails got the cutest design (and picked up some tips along the way *crosses fingers that I can do some nail art in the future*!

As some of you may or may not know, Luxe Box has changed their subscription services. Instead of delivering monthly boxes, they are delivering 4 seasonal boxes- Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer.It would cost $26 per season = 1 Luxe Box, $50 for 2 seasons = 2 Luxe Boxes, or a full year (aka 4 seasons) would cost $96. Each box is supposed to contain 7-8 beauty and lifestyle products to help stay on trend. When I read that between the lines, it pretty much screams no to me. The math doesn’t add up right, and what if I don’t like the products on trend? What happened to tailoring products to our needs?
Members can opt to have the last June box, or upgrade to the new membership for free. I had a $12 credit (apparently I skipped the January box) so I opted to have the June box, since I didn’t want to spend my money on these things anymore. Luckily, I made the right choice, since the Luxe in Luxe Box is long gone to me.
So I got my (last) June box and it seems they have resorted to drugstore brands, rather than going on the high end, as they had advertised oh so long ago. I have seen some reviews online on people’s boxes, and I was hoping, hoping I would have something different, but Loose Button enjoys to disappoint.
Yes, they did give out 3 full sized products, but they’re not something I would use. Plus, everyone got the same thing, as if they didn’t care what people had on their profile- just cleaning the extra stock they had! I got:
L’Oreal Mythic Oil:
I received 3mL. This is the only product I am excited for, since I like using hair oils.
OPI Top coat:
I don’t really like the OPI top coat, Seche Vite all the way. Will find some way to give/sell this away.
Olay Professional Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex
Eh, not a fan. This product seems to be catered to more older woman. Why is a drugstore product so expensive?
Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips
The nail strips are actually bright pink, but my camera couldn’t capture it well. Full size- but I would never, ever wear this on my nails in a billion years.
The box also came with a bonus mirror:
I did get 3 full sized products that paid for the box itself, but it wasn’t the box for me. I do not regret my decision of cancelling, and I’ll be reading what other people get in their seasonal Luxe Box.
