LOULOU Edition Luxe Box Review - Fall 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box


What is it? Luxe Box
How Much? $26 per quarter, $50 semi-annually, $96 yearly. Shipping included.
What’s in it?  7-8 Trial-size products every season (4x per year)

It's a new season so that means it's time for a new Luxe Box! This quarter there was a handful of specially curated boxes available, in addition to the regular Fall box. I opted for the LOULOU box and the regular box. The LOULOU box was an additional $7. The preview indicated a retail value of $105, plus this box included a 4-month subscription to LOULOU magazine.

Now for the unboxing:




I love Luxe Box packaging. I use the boxes to organize odds and ends in my beauty cabinet and I use the drawstring bags for travel. They are great for storing lingerie and small items in a suitcase.

Inside the bag...


Barefoot Venus - Bath Bliss in Coconut Kiss (Full size, $4.99)


Klorane - Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Extract (50ml,  $6.67)


Cover Girl - Outlast Nail Gloss in Grapevine (Full Size, $5.99)


L'Occitane - Immortelle Precious Night Cream (15ml, $27.60)


Loose Button - Eyeshadow Brush (~$20)


Michael Kors - Eau de Parfum in Sporty Citrus, Sexy Amber, and GLAM Jasmine (1.5ml each, $7.65 )


L'Occitane - Amande Supple Skin Oil (15ml, $7.80)


Be a Bombshell - Eye Liner in Onyx (Full Size, $14)


My Fall LOULOU Edition Luxe Box included 8 products, plus a 4-month subscription to LOULOU Magazine (value $7.50). I estimate the value of this box to be $102. I paid $31 for this box ($24 subscription plus $7 upgrade), so I think that's a good value in return. I knew what products I was getting in advance, so there are no surprises, and I'm happy with everything I received, with the exception of the perfume. I was a little bummed when I read some reviews of the regular Luxe Box and saw people received 4 or 5 of the same products I did. The product repetition was my main complaint last season, and I hoped Luxe Box would find a way to make the special edition boxes more exclusive and actually special. The LOULOU box does seem to have a significantly higher value though, so it's still worthwhile.

What do you think of the Fall LOULOU Edition Luxe Box?

  1. Yep our boxes are very similar. I wonder how different your regular box will be?

    1. Luxe Box used to ship to US but they stopped to focus on their Canadian clients.

  4. my loulou box had a mustard bath bliss instead of mango (published in loulou) or your coconut. Yup, mustard. SO not impressed.

    1. I received the mustard scent too … not too appealing, but it's supposed to be good for aches and pains, like epsom salts.

    2. It smells like mustard? Eek.

    3. No it actually smells like mint

  5. I'll be curious to see how your regular box compares, I'm not convinced the upgrades are really worth it except if you want the magazine subscription itself.

    1. Value wise, they are worth it. I paid $31 for the LOULOU box and rec'd $102 in products. The regular box (without the Shu Uemura add on) was $26 and had $77 worth of product. Some regular boxes I saw had value in the high 60 range. For a $7 upgrade fee I got 25-35 dollars more value and an additional product.
