Luxe Box Arrival

My Luxe Box has arrived!

I placed my order for my Luxe Box April 20th and my first (May) box arrived May 28th. Not too bad. I must say I was a bit surprised by how small the box was (about 7" x 7" for anyone who cares). I guess I just thought it would be bigger from pictures and videos I had seen, but none the less I'm still pleased to be holding it in my hands!

I was also very pleased to have recieved two boxes, the regular Luxe Box and a bonus Bath & Body Box (white). In the Bath & Body box I received the Venus & Olay razor , as well as Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex. I am quite happy with the razor, as that alone is probably almost the price of the box so I feel we're off to a good start. :)

Inside my actual Luxe Box I received:

'Kerastase - Masque Chroma Riche' - Here's a little blurb about the product I found on LookFantastic- "Introducing the first deep emollient light refracting hair care for damaged, coloured, highlighted or sensitised hair. K√©rastase Reflection Masque Chroma Riche is a luminous softening treatment mask that delivers mirror-like radiance to your hair."

It has also recieved great reviews on MakeupAlley so I am looking forward to trying this out. The full retail size value is $57 so I'm kind of hoping I don't fall in love with it.

I also got 3 perfume samples- CK Shock for Her (full-size $40) , Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty (full-size $78), & Marc Jacobs Oh Lola (full-size $78). I am looking forward to trying Oh Lola because I've heard really great things about it.

Next thing I pulled out of my Luxe Box was the Cargo Glitter Top Coat for your eyes. Now I'm really not thrilled about this one. I'm not much of a glitter girl but I will give it a shot. The nice thing about this one though is that it`s full size- not sample. It`s retail price is $18.

Here is what Cargo says about the product on their site: " Let your eyes steal the spotlight! The ultimate transformer, CARGO’s Glitter Top Coat takes your daytime eye makeup straight into the evening with one sweep of the brush. Infused with colored iridescent glitter in a transparent base, Glitter Top Coat can be worn alone or on top of any waterproof eyeliner or eye shadow. The super long-wear formula is both waterproof and smudge-proof, and the magic tip applicator allows for perfect results!"

Lastly I recieved another sample of the Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex. I will use this product to see what it's like but, I'm only 21 so I really don't think I need this yet. I will probably give one of the samples to my mom. The full size version retails for $60.

And that's it people! Overall I would say I`m satisfied but I thought it would be a little better. I guess I will wait and see how next months turns out. I also am waiting for my GlossyBox to arrive so after a few months of each I will see what one I like better and cancel the other.

What are your thoughts on Luxe Box?


  1. Oooh I've never heard of the Luxe Box! I think it looks really good, but I have heard good things about GlossyBox! I am currently signed up to JolieBox and I received my first one this month and I am fairly impressed! I will be doing a post shortly on it at my blog

    Now following your blog! :)

    1. Wish I could get Jolie Box here in Canada!

      Thanks for the follow, I'm now following you too! :)

  2. I haven't tried this! I have heard pretty good things about Luxe box (instead of Birchbox). I think it would be so much fun to subscribe!


    1. Well as you will see in my post (, if GlossyBox is an option for, go for GlossyBox instead! So much more value for your dollar! :)
