Luxe Box Spring 2016

Luxe Box is a quarterly box that sends out 7-8 trial sized beauty and lifestyle discoveries every season.  It is a Canadian box which is nice and shipping is included in the pricing.  Each box is $26 or you can sign up for a year for $96, so a slight discount. They also had a few upgrade options if you wanted but I stuck with the standard box. I had wanted to cancel this box but I couldn’t get through to actually speak to someone so I ended up getting another years worth.  The products are usually okay but getting this and Topbox, which are put out by the same company does result in some duplicates.

There is a little info card that comes each season.  It tells you the company and product plus a quick little blurb on each item.  Where you can purchase and full size prices are also given.

Because of Earth month coming up, they didn’t give you the box option this month, so everyone got theirs in the bag only.

Smashbox Photo Finish Classic Primer-7.1mL $10.41

It’s a good thing I love primers because this is the third time I’ve received this specific one.  I actually just got this same sample in my February Topbox.  It works great though and since I wear primer everyday these little sample sizes don’t take me too long to use up.

Jelly Pong Pong Lychee Gel Softening Shower &  Bath Gel-30mL $15.95

This smells very nice.  This is also a full size item and it’s, to me very expensive, for such a small sized item.  It is paraben free and lathers up nice so I’ll happily use it up.

POP Beauty Kajal Pen in Inky Purple-0.9g $10.00

This is also a full sized item and also something I just got in my Topbox.  It is a nice purple liner and I’ve been using my other one since it came in.  The only thing I would say is that it is not long lasting and wears off around noon.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor-$12.64

This is such an odd inclusion in this box.  I’m thinking that maybe this was a sponsored item because I can’t figure out why it would be put in this box otherwise.  We all need razors, so it’s not a bad thing to get but definitely not what I would be expecting.

Benefit Cosmetics The Porefessional Primer-3.0mL $5.05

This is another one I’ve received multiple times but the same joy from above applies.  This is actually the primer I’m using right now and I like it.  I have found that Benefit cosmetics work great on my skin and I am never upset to get any of their items.

Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer in Eye Candy-15mL $15.83

Well at least this duplicate is a different colour.  My Topbox had a green shade that was fantastic!  This soft purple is great for Spring.  It makes me think of Easter and bunnies and chocolate and……well, you get the idea.  I have been promising Bug that we would do her nails one of these days and this might be the perfect colour to honour that promise.

Model Co BB Plus Cream Daily All-In-One Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF30-35mL $22.00

I’m not sure how I feel about this.  I am happy with the product and the fact that it’s full sized but for some reason it is maybe too yellow toned for me.  I was able to blend it in but I had to work at it and that is not really what I want to have to do every day to use it.  It made a noticeable difference in the look of my skin though so maybe I’ll just have to suck it up for the results.

Also in the bag this month were two coupons.  One for $5.00 off a razor and the other gets you a bonus 3500 Shoppers Optimum Points if you buy Benefit Cosmetics at Shoppers.

This seasons Luxe Box has a value of $91.88. Wow! There were five full sized items, which is unusual for them but I like it! The razor is the only thing that I’m sad about. I find that I get lots of emails from Luxe Box with specials from the products included or companies they have partnered with.  I like them and I am getting to try new things that are available here in Canada, which I also like.  The duplicate issue is another thing but if I cancel one or the other it would be mostly solved.
