My Luxe Box

It’s been a little while since I’ve written an article for you. I apologise, my dear readers, Fira and Capa have been too busy enjoying their summer. But don’t worry, we are back on track now and have a whole bunch of fun posts coming up this week!

I’ve been dying to share with you my latest obsession, of which, as you know, I have quite a few): Luxe Box from Loose Button! For $12/month (the annual subscription is $120, so you get 2 months free!) you get a beautiful gift box packed to the brim with deluxe samples, delivered to your door. Even better, some of the products come in full size! Loose Button works with brands like Clinique, Dermalogica, Shu Uemura, MAC, and many more. There is a rumor that we will be able to get discounted products which have been featured in the Luxe Box on their site!

So, last week my first LB arrived! I was so excited and couldn’t wait to open it; it was like getting an unexpected mystery gift from a secret admirer who loved beauty as much as I do!

My little treasure box didn’t fail me! It came with a pretty bow, a mountain of tissue paper, and a personalized card! I also loved the “content inventory sheet” – it helped me get familiar with the products so much faster! Here is what I got:

A full-size Essie nail polish

I am not sure if everyone got the same color this month, but mine #727, In Stitches. It’s a beautiful intense rose with a touch of ochre. It will be perfect come September with its intense colors and romantic-melancholic mood. By the way, please check out Essie’s website – I can’t get over how yummy the animation looks!

Trucco full-size pro-lip pencil

I just realized that the pencil, which came in Cinnamon Stick, would match the Essie nail polish perfectly! Too bad I am not a lip liner type of gal, but my good friend Ruzanna will like it for sure.

Proclaim Argan Oil Hair Treatment

I have to admit, this was my favorite product out of the lot! I love everything that helps my hair look beautiful and healthy, and this treatment does all that, plus smells so good I am ready to eat it! I’ve used it twice so far, once on damp and once on dry hair. The result was amazing both times – no fly-aways or visible hair damage, and the hair looked like it was deep-conditioned just minutes ago. Better yet, this product is only about $7 for a 90 ml bottle, so I think I will be getting it soon!

Stella in Two Peony by Stella McCartney

This was the last product in my Luxe Box, and I was very glad to see - and smell -- it. I love fragrance and can’t imagine my life without new olfactory experiences. This perfume is sweet and intense, reminding me of summer nights, somewhere on a tropical island when the flowers are in full bloom. I am not sure if I could wear it every day, but I would definitely use it when on vacation.

Last, but not least, please be sure to update your profile after ordering the Luxe Box. This will help the wonderful folks at Loose Button to put together the best samples that you will love and enjoy using!

Hi! I enjoy your blog very much! I was wondering if there are other sites like this available in Canada that offer apparel and accessories?

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics.
