Luxe Box is a leading Canadian subscription service that sends beauty and lifestyle products every season. Boxes ship four times per year, and include complimentary shipping.

At Luxe Box, our mission is to help consumers better discover, try and purchase quality beauty and lifestyle products through a unique experience.

Each season, Luxe Box offers a regular box and a few upgrade boxes. One of the upgrade boxes for Spring 2015 was this limited-edition Bene-Boutique, featuring Benefit Cosmetics. This upgrade is free and available to all subscribers. The regular Spring 2015 Luxe Boxes start shipping in mid-March, but the Bene-Boutique Edition Luxe Box won't ship until mid-April. This box is still available for upgrade and gifting, but only until Sunday March 15th. This Bene-Boutique was sent to me early for review purposes.

The box is only two inches thick and shipped in a large bubble mailer. It's designed like an advent calendar. Open up the little windows to see your goodies. If you want to save the cute box, I recommend opening the box from the top, then slid out the plastic tray.

This is how it looks when all the windows are opened and products exposed. The Bene-Boutique that ships to members will include a small product card, but the cards weren't ready yet for media shipments. I received a digital version instead.

 This is how everything looks with the plastic tray removed from the box.

Benefit The POREfessional (3ml, $4)
Quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines and help makeup stay put with this priming phenomenon. The silky and lightweight formula can be worn under makeup to create a smoother-than-smooth canvas or used throughout the day to mattify shine and touch up problem areas. It’s so translucent, no one will know you’re wearing anything! 
This seems to be a staple product, included in every Benefit promo. I've received this sample so many times, in varying sizes. This 3ml version is the smallest size available.

Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium (3g full size, $24)
Bring on the brows! This innovative brush-on fiber gel adheres to skin & hair…creating brows where before there were none. It builds easily for thick, lush arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending & precision tip for shaping. Available in two shades.
This product is pretty small, but it is full size. I'm also happy to receive the light/medium shade. Last time I received Gimme Brow it was medium/dark so I had to give it away.

Benefit They're Real! Mascara Deluxe Sample (3g, $8)
They're real! lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. Our jet black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!
This is my favourite mascara to date so I love getting sample versions. They're great for travel and in my purse.

Benetint Deluxe Sample (2.5ml, $8)
Our original rose-tinted stain is kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all’s innocent yet provocative.
I've never been a fan of this one, even though it is one of their most well known and top selling products. 

Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream (3g sample, $7.25)
Your eyes can't keep a secret...they're the first to show signs of age & stress. It's potent! eye cream fades dark circles & helps smooth fine lines for brighter, younger-looking eyes. Contains a peptide complex known to help restore elasticity & firmness, a blend of hydrating botanical extracts and loquat extract, known to help protect the skin from free radical damage.
Last time I received this sample, I gave it to my mom. This one is all mine!

Benefit Brow Bar Complimentary Brow Wax & Tint (Value ~$40)
All subscribers will also get a Brow Pass to receive a complimentary brow wax and tint from the Benefit Brow Bar. Unfortunately, this pass is only redeemable at the Uptown Yonge Benefit Boutique in Toronto, Ontario. If you are like me and don't live in the GTA, this bonus is worthless, so I am not including it in the box value.

The Bene-Boutique Edition Spring 2015 Luxe Box included five Benefit products with a retail value of $51.25 US (about $65.50 CDN). Luxe Box costs $26 CDN, including shipping. The value is great and and it's a great way to sample a variety of Benefit products. I'm a little surprised they didn't take this opportunity to include the new, much-hyped Roller Lash Mascara, but the Bene-Boutique does include some of Benefit's top selling, cult products. These are the tried and true products from their lineup, so if you are new to Benefit Cosmetics, these are the products to try.

This box is still available for upgrade or gifting, until March 15th. If you are already signed up for Luxe Box, just log into your account and select this one from the Limited Edition options. If you are new to Luxe Box, sign up here using my link and save $2 per box! The Bene-Boutique Edition Luxe Box ships in mid-April.

  1. The packaging on this is so cute!

  2. I hope your standard spring luxe box is better than mine. Most of the items I received are doubled from the winter or chalet box. Was it through luxe box or top box that you were able to contact them and receive different items?

    Great post! I would have ordered this if I hadn't received the Benefit Top Box before.

    1. I'm not aware of Luxe Box having a no duplicate product guarantee. Topbox is good for that though and the odd time I've received a duplicate product they've sent out something new.

    2. My regular edition box shipped this week so I will have it soon.
