So, I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive to open my Luxe Box because of the “First In Line” issues and due to the wild variety of samples people often receive. I was not disappointed though, mainly due to one product. As other people have mentioned, April was Daffodil Month and Loose Button partnered up with the Canadian Cancer Society to make a donation on behalf of the Loose Button community which I thought was a generous thing to do. In honour of this donation, we (all?) received a daffodil pin.
In this month’s Luxe Box I received:
Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner
Excitement Level: Ok, well silicone-free shampoo seems to be the thing now, so alright I’m on board. I guess I should feel special that I’ve been “invited” to try this product out? As for shampoo samples, I’m happy with having actual bottles with enough product in them for me to fully experience how well they will work for me.
Full Size: Both are each 375mL/$6
I Received: 50mL/$0.80 each
Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Colour Care Shampoo &Conditioner
Excitement Level: Ummm…more shampoo and conditioner? This Luxe Box isn’t exactly the most well-rounded…the only thing that really interests me about this sample is the moisture mask that is included because I do hair masks once a week.
Full Size: Shampoo/Conditioner 236mL/$28 and Moisture Mask 198g/$45
I Received: 9mL/$1.07 each and 8.6g/$1.95
Orlane Perfect Complexion Treatment Foundation in Beige 23
Excitement Level: I like Orlane products and I always use makeup primers so I’m pretty excited to try this product out! This is a moisturizer as well as a full coverage foundation that’s non-greasy too. Definitely something that I would use.
Full Size: 50mL/$60
I Received: 3.5mL/$4.20
Essie Nail Polish in Pink-a-Boo
Excitement Level: Eeeee! Flakies! This was my first in line choice and thank goodness I got it despite me never getting an email with my password until AFTER my time slot had passed…anyway, I wanted to get this colour, but resisted because I wasn’t sure how it would look on me. This is part of Essie’s Resort 2012 Collection that I actually have the mini collection of, so I will be giving my mini Pink-a-Boo to a friend. This was of course my FAVOURITE product in the box!
Full Size: 15mL/$8
I Received: *FULL SIZE*
Total value of Luxe Box = $17.89
This is probably the lowest valued Luxe Box I’ve ever had, but I did get one product that made up for it so I’m still happy. I wonder what bag of tricks next month will bring?!
