review: february luxe box by loose button


I just received my February Luxe Box in the mail yesterday and I have to say that I just love the red box made specially for this month! If you don’t know what a Luxe Box is, you can always check out their about page here to learn more. In summary, it is a monthly beauty box subscription service that delivers a box of 4-5 deluxe sized samples straight to your door!

This month’s box contained 4 products, 3 of which I have already tried and can give you an honest opinion on. Here is a list of the products received, what the description on the insert said, how much it retails for, and what I thought of each one, in order of excitement level:

♥ Benefit’s Sun Beam ~ This golden bronze highlighter gives you a natural, sun kissed radiance. Dot & blend over makeup on to cheek & brow bones for a bronzed glow that complements all skin tones. It’s liquid sunshine in a bottle! Try it today and set your skin aglow. Sample size received: 2.5ml & full size retail price: $30 for 13ml.

I was so happy when I saw this product in the box. I’ve been wanting to try it out since it launched but haven’t had the chance to purchase it. I just love all Benefit products in general. I haven’t had a single problem with or disliked any of their products that I’ve tried so far, which says something about the quality of the brand.

♥ CK One’s Shock for Her ~ This perfume opens with a fierce bouquet of passion flower, pink peony, and jewelled poppy flower. The intensity deepens with blackberry, jasmine, and narcisse flower, drizzled with a liquid chocolate accord. The addictive signature finishes with magnetic ambers enveloped in vanillin and patchouli, wrapped in second skin musk. Sample size received: 10ml & full size retail price: $45 for 50ml & $65 for 100ml.

It smells heavenly. Absolutely loved the fresh scent and loved the sample size. It’s not one of those samples you receive in store that run out after 2-3 uses. This bottle is big enough to last a good month or so I believe. I also love the fact it has a rollerball top, which makes it easier to dispense the product onto your skin.

♥ Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner for color-treated hair ~ Fights the four causes of colour change: environmental aggressors, poor cuticle condition, colour-altering minerals, water attack. It refreshes and moisturizes hair, protecting colour from fading. Formulated with Interlock Protein Network, the shampoo/conditioner combination gently cleanses while leaving hair shiny, manageable and refreshed. Sample size received: 6 packets, 10ml each & full size retail price: $15 for 300ml shampoo & $17 for 250ml conditioner.

The box contained 3 samples of each, and this is the product I have yet to try. Redken is a good brand though, so I’m expecting it to work well on my hair especially since I have a tendency to dye my hair. Often!

♥ Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant ~ Considered as one of InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys, this unique rice-based enzyme powder helps to exfoliate your skin by removing debris, leaving your skin smoother and brighter. Contains no artificial fragrance or colour; good for all skin types. Sample size received: 13g & full size retail price: $72 for 75g.

This is the product I was least excited to receive, and not because it’s not a good product but because I use this already as part of my kit at beauty school. I have the same sample size and use it twice a week in my skin prep class and it is great. It is not a grainy exfoliant, so you won’t find it harsh on the skin at all. It’s meant to be used on a daily basis and I find that since I started using it, my skin has become smoother and brighter. I would definitely recommend this product and other products by Dermalogica if you’re on the lookout for a new skin care regimen and have skin that reacts to products easily.

♥ Bonus ~ A $25 coupon code off of any purchase of $75 or more on the Dealuxe website.

So this was what I received in my Luxe Box this month! Are you subscribed? What did you receive? I’d love to see what others have gotten!

Happy unboxing! xx
