Luxe Box – Fall 2012 Edition
Picture it...Winnipeg, May 2012...
Loose Button changed their subscription service from a monthly service to a seasonal (quarterly) service that also included a price increase. I was quite vocal about my displeasure about the sudden change, lack of information and price increase. I was happy for the most part with my monthly boxes. I was resistant to change.

Now that the ’new and improved’ Luxe Box has hit my doorstep, am I a convert? Kind of. There were several items I was totally thrilled to get and a couple others, not so much. But that is much the case for most subscription boxes I receive.
My initial thought is this an improvement. Loose Button did promise 7-8 samples that would allow us more uses as well as additional perks. My box does have eight samples that will allow me to really determine how I like the product. Loose Button has also emailed out several perks to members in the last two months as well; Peacock Parade, Buytopia.

I think the product variety in member boxes is great; Marcelle, Lancome, China Glaze, Eyeko, blinc, benefit, Paco Rabanne etc.
The products I received in my box;
|Fall Edition contents|
China Glaze Nail Polish – Exotic EncountersI am always happy to get China Glaze. This was one my top choices from their fall On Safari line.
Benefit Stay Don’t Stray primerI have always wanted to try benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray primer. Love me some benefit.
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner
I have to say the Eyeko liner is pretty cool. The felt tip should make creating winged eyeliners looks a breeze. The little heart I drew on my wrist is still there...8 hours later J as intense and no smudges. I hope it is easy to remove.
|Kerastase and Loose Button|
Kerastase Elixir UltimeThis seems like a small sample but it is oil so a few drops should do the trick. It has a perfumy scent to it. It is made for colour treated hair, which I have.
Loose Button Exfoliating Pad
This was in the cute little cardstock gift box.
|paco rabanne and Orlane|
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Sensual Body Lotion
I haven’t opened this yet as it is sealed. I will save this for special occasions.
Orlane Thermo-Active Firming SerumI am not a fan of thermal active face products. My skin does not react well to them. Should I try it? Eep.
Orlane Absolute Skin Recovery PolyactiveThe card states that this product is supposed to defend against extreme fatigue, a cause of skin aging. The formula crates visible results in a few applications. I am trying this out tonight!
There were no prices on the product card. The card states that we can log onto our Loose Button account to view complete product information. Maybe I am tired but I couldn't find the product information.
Do I think the box is worth $26 – considering the Eyeko eyeliner and China Glaze nail polish equals $26, I would say yes. Would I continue to subscribe? Yes, but that is also mitigated by the credit I still have. I am curious to see what the Winter box will bring.Subscriptions plans:
$26 - every 3 months
$50 - every 6 month
$96 - annually
