Loose Button and Luxe Box

Just before Christmas when I was doing my holiday shopping in the way that I normally do - one for them, two for me, I came across a web article on Canadian mail order gift ideas. One of the ideas was a monthly "luxury box" full of cosmetics samples sent to your home. It's called "Luxe Box" by Loose Button and I received the January box today. For $12.00 a month, including shipping, you get 3-5 luxury samples of anything from hair products to cosmetics to creams to perfumes. This month, for some reason, we got an extra little white box with a couple of products in it so that was a nice bonus. Inside, everything is all nicely wrapped in black tissue with a personalized sticker.

The company encloses a card telling you what month box you are receiving and listing all the products, including directions for use and prices.

So....this is my haul for January. Not bad for $12.00!

Unfortunately, I do not wear perfume like I used to since my workplace went scent-free several years ago. As a result, I am left with a cupboard full of evaporating scents. However, the sample sizes might be nice for when I go out as they can be used up in just a few wearings. There are six scents all done up in a little black gauze bag.

This was one of the bonus items - a full-size Schick razor. Price given is $13.00 though I'm not sure I would ever spend that much on one razor.

Other items included a full-size China Glaze nail polish, an NYX jumbo eye pencil, also full-size, a sample tube of Yves Rocher anti-fatigue skin care cream and a sample size Fekkai shampoo and conditioner.

Not being a coffee drinker, I can't really appreciate this "Seattle's Best Coffee" but I'm sure one of my friends will be more than happy to take it off my hands.

And, finally, this is the card that came with everything. Hopefully, next month is as good as this one!

I have signed up for a couple of other boxes just to compare - Glymm Box and Glossy Box and will post once I have received those in February and March.

Hope everyone is having a great 2012 - thanks for looking.
