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?
