Luxebox Unboxing Winter 2017

 

20171214_160555_HDR

My winter Luxebox arrived this week! Luxebox is a Canadian beauty subscription box. You can purchase its at myluxebox.ca for $26CAD per box. It is sent through Top Box if you are familiar with their boxes.

This month I was not super excited. It is a decent box but since getting Boxycharm not much else compares. I like to support Canadian subscriptions but the value cannot really compare to Boxycharm!

I did not receive an email with an explanation of the products this month so I am just going to provide any information I can find online. This seasons box includes:

Barefoot Hand Moisturizer $10 – I like that this is a Canadian brand, although I am never a huge fan of hand moisturizer in my box.

Cougar Eyeshadow Contour Set $13– This is a weird shimmer eyeshadow palette. I have never seen it in a round package like this. I love these colors so I may use it but it is not an item I am super excited about!

Morgan Taylor nail polish $7– I actually love this nail polish color. As long as it is decently long lasting I will be happy with it!

Laritzy silicon makeup blender $14– I have only seen bad reviews about silicon makeup blenders so I am super disappointed that they included this. I feel like it was something Laritzy tried to get rid of.

Medusa lipstick $7– I love this shade so I am excited to see how the formula is!

GlamGlow Youthmud mask $24– I was so excited about this in the last box but now I have got a few of these in boxes and I think they need more variety. It is an amazing mask though so I am happy to have it.

Sweetie Peppermint Bliss bath bomb– I love bath bombs so its a welcomed add on to the box!

All in all this box has decent value, I just was not super excited for any of the products. I think I will continue with Boxycharm but discontinue this one. I really wanted to like it because it was Canadian. I may try it out again in the future!

What subscription boxes are you loving lately!?

LUXEBOX Unboxing

LUXEBOX is a beauty subscription box that is $26 CAD and offers free shipping in Canada. Most beauty subscriptions charge quite a bit of shipping to Canada which I find decreases its value for us Canadians. I used to subscribe to Ipsy but started to find it wasn’t worth the almost $15 price tag. I have heard good things about Topbox so I thought I would try their Luxebox and see how I like it.

With Luxebox you get a new box every three months. You receive a personalized beauty box with 7-8 products in it. They email you reminding you about the box and a few days before it arrives they send you an email with all the products listed and the websites you can purchase them from. Although the email spoils the surprise, I like that it saves paper! Often times subscription boxes have a lot of fancy printouts and I appreciate that Luxebox skips that and just provides great products.

The descriptions I am including are the descriptions from the email regarding the contents of the box.

This months box included four skincare items and four makeup items:

All in all I think this subscription was a success. I find skincare products very hit and miss in beauty boxes but these ones seem to be a hit. I will always use body wash and hand creme and I have been eyeing the GlamGlow mask for a long time and the value of it pays for the whole box! I have yet to try any of the makeup except the lip stain which was a bit of a miss. However, I think the nail polish is a great nude colour and the highligher looks lovely.

I do not regret this purchase at all and I already cannot wait for my next LUXEBOX!

Let me know in the comments if you have tried Luxebox and also what other beauty subscriptions you love!
