Spring 2015 LuxeBox by Loose Button - Canadian Quarterly Beauty Box Review

This post contains referral links

LuxeBox by Loose Button is a quarterly beauty subscription. It is a Canadian Company and they send out their beauty box at the start of each season. The cost is $26.00 CDN per quarter ($27.30 with tax). Shipping is included in the price and they currently only ship to Canada! 

You will receive 7-8 sample size and full size products beauty product and tools. 
You can save a little if you sign up for a longer subscription - $25 a box if you sign up for 2 boxes and $24 a box if you sign up for a year (4 boxes). 

LuxeBox offers Box upgrades to different boxes for the season and I never selected an upgrade before! I decided to upgrade to the Bene-Boutique for the Spring box (this box was available for no extra charge, some upgrades cost a few extra dollars):

Looks like 5 products and a free brow-wax. I love Benefit cosmetics, so I'm looking forward to this!

Here is a look at the Spring 2015 LuxeBox Bene-Boutique Box:

This came in a much different mailer than I usually see LuxeBox in! Here is a look inside:

The little house is set up like an advent calendar - very cute! LuxeBox does not normally come with a product card but this month it did:

The product card explains the 5 Benefit products. And then here is the card for the free brow-wax. Do you notice that this is only available to use in Toronto?! Do you think LuxeBox advertised this when you decided to upgrade? No! That is crap - you would think if they included it in the value for all Canadians, they would have selected a store at least available in every province? There goes $25 off of this value! I'm not happy with this! (I have emailed the company regarding this!)

Here is a look at the products inside:

Here is a closer look at the products:

Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $8 (full size is 0.5 oz for $40). Your eyes can't keep a secret—they're the first to show signs of age and stress. It's Potent! Eye Cream fades dark circles and helps smooth the appearance of fine lines for brighter, younger-looking eyes.
I ordered this box around the same time as I ordered the February Benefit TopBox - but since I wasn't sure I was going to get the Topbox, I decided to double-up! I do have this already, so I may pass it on! 

Benefit The POREfessional ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $4.93 (full size is 0.75 oz for $37). Quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup.

I have received this product in a few boxes now - but I like the product. This is quite a small sample size for a face product. 



Benefit They're Real Mascara ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $9.67 (full size is 0.3 oz for $29). They're real! lengthens, volumizes, lifts & separates. This jet black, long-wearing formula won't smudge or dry out.
I was hoping that they may decide to include the new Rollerball Mascara instead of this type. This is iconic mascara is good, but it's not my favorite. I prefer not to use the mascara with the hard plastic bristles. 

Benefit Gimme Brow in "Medium/Deep" ~ full size 0.1 oz for $28. This innovative brush-on fiber gel adheres to skin & hair... creating brows where before there were none. It builds easily for thick, lush arches. 
It is nice to see a full sized product in the box - I have never tried this product before! I usually use a clay brow product so this is different for me! i will have to play around with it before I decide if I like it or not! 



Benefit Benetint ~ sample size 0.08 for $6.86 (full size is 0.42 oz for $36). Kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. Naturally sheer & sexy on all complexions... it's innocent yet provocative. 
I have tried a few lip and cheek tints but I have not tried the Benefit brand yet! I'm not the biggest fan of stains (maybe because I haven't quite mastered how to use them yet!) but I will try this to see how I like it! 

LuxeBox advertised this box as having a value of $78. I have not included the value of the Brow wax because it is only available in 1 city across Canada. My calculation of the value is $57.46. This is still a good value, just not as much as advertised. I am happy there is 1 full sized products and am happy with most of the products in the box.

For now, I have cancelled my LuxeBox subscription - this was one of the ones I decided in January (when I put myself on a diet), that I decided to skip on when I had to make some cuts! I will hopefully try it again though!

  1. That's really awesome that they did it in such a fun box! I'm obsessed with that POREfessional product, I got a sample size awhile ago and was impressed with how long it lasted.

    1. Yes the box is so cute - although it was actually hard to get the samples out of, so it doesn't look so cute anymore!!

    2. I ended up sneakily opening the bottom and removing the entire sample tray! The box remains beautifully unopened!

    3. Ah - that was a good idea! I should have thought about that!
