Luxe Box Review - Winter 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box
What is it? Luxe BoxThis is the last Luxe Box in my pre-paid year subscription. The next box is due out in Spring so I have lots of time to decide if I want to re-new. Luxe Box offered three limited edition boxes for upgrade this winter, along with the regular box. There was a LOULOU Edition, Zoomer Edition, and New Year's Edition. For the past two seasons, I maintained two Luxe Box accounts so I could get one upgrade box and one regular box, but I never found the upgrade box was worth it. Many of the products from the upgrade box appeared in the regular boxes too so there was no exclusivity. For this season, I cancelled one account and opted for only the regular 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)
More subscription company cross promotion... Luxe Box has partnered with Panty by Post to offer $25 off any subscription using code Gift25. Expires March 31, 2014. I was thinking of signing up for a 3-month in the new year!
Luxe Box doesn't include a traditional product card. Instead, you login to your account and go to your "Personal Product Dashboard". There you will find all the products included in your box, with detailed description, prices, and where to buy.
This is a huge full-size lotion and it smells pretty nice. I received a smaller Simple Pleasures lotion in a previous Luxe Box.
Luxe Box is the only subscription that consistently includes fragrance, even when subscribers opt to not receive fragrance! This bottle is adorable, but the scent is not for me.
I'm glad to see a new product from Loose Button instead of another make up brush. I already have four brushes from Luxe Box so this is a good change and I look forward to using these while lounging in the tub!
"The creamy texture of Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara, enriched with Carnauba wax, coats and thickens every single lash without weighing them down." This is one of the smallest mascara samples I've seen. Hopefully enough to be able to test it out adequately.
This is a lip and cheek stain, similar to Benetint. "Fear not those dreaded streaks most tints leave behind - Stainiac’s aloe-infused gel-based formula is designed to give you more time before the stain sets."
This little tube is actually a mini full-size. The website sells 7ml, 15ml, and 30ml sizes. "Specifically formulated to help win the battle against eye puffiness, dark circles and lines under the eyes. It detoxifies the skin to help remove under-eye darkness and helps stop dark patches from forming on the skin."
This is the first time I received a conditioner sample without an accompanying shampoo sample. Kind of odd. "Designed to provide the optimum level of moisture, amino and fatty acids, and pH level for every hair type. The result is hair that is shiny, full of bounce, without frizz and with greater strength and elasticity."
"Be the toast of the town in sparkling, luxurious seashell lacquer."
My Winter Edition Luxe Box contained 8 products, 4 of which are full size! The approximate value of this box is over $85! I paid $24 for this box, with a year subscription. It's a great value! I like the mix of cosmetics, beauty, hair, and skin care items. It's a very well rounded product mix, more so than any other box. Based on this one, I think I would renew for 2014, but after checking reviews of other people, I'm not so sure. Luxe Box really is hit or miss sometimes. Thankfully mine was more of a hit this season.
What do you think of the Winter Edition Luxe Box? Are you going to continue your subscription through 2014?
