Loose Button Luxe Box |Winter 2012

by - January 04, 2013

I know everyone has already gotten their Luxe Boxes and has a general idea what was in the Winter box. Even I sneaked peaked before Christmas and I was optimistic about mine. Except mine was part of the last wave of boxes (Dec 20th) that went out on and I didn’t get it until after Christmas... actually this past Monday as I was out of town during Christmas week. 


I certainly like the sumptuous appearance of the new Luxe Boxes. The packaging is refined, simple and elegant. But of course I am not paying for a pretty box... well I guess I probably am in some part HAHA.

The Winter 2012 Luxe Box;


When I saw the contents I was initially okay with them but then I realized I did not get the eyeko mascara or the Essie nail polish… I got an eye cream and a body lotion instead. Don’t get me wrong the brands are great but I prefer makeup over lotion any day. So I am a little miffed about that.

Blue Lagoon Skin Care Algae Mask    packet {rare}
Blue Lagoon algae mask nourishes lifts and enhances radiance. The algae mask is like a ‘revitalizing skin bath’ that immediately brings back moisture and firmness.
I can’t wait to try this mask. I am hopefully that it will give my skin an instant lift. I hoping there is enough for a few uses.

Cake Beauty It’s A Slice Supreme Body Lotion   deluxe
An ultra light body lotion with extreme hydrators that will leave your skin lightly scented and perfectly moisturized. Your skin will look and feel exceptionally dewy and supple.
This smells amazing. I do like Cake products. It’s been awhile since I have had any. I try to keep an eye for them in Winners. There was a Cake body butter I loved. I cannot remember the name of it right now but I literally wanted to eat it.

Elizabeth Grant Biocollasis Complex Cell Vitality 3 in 1 Eye Treatment deluxe
Biocollasis Complex Cell Vitality 3 in 1 Eye Treatment is a revolutionary concentrate designed for protecting the delicate eye area from lines, dark circles and puffiness.
This has a loooonnnngggg name. I have mentioned it before but I am leery of eye creams. I have not had a great history with them. Very few do not make my eyes and under eye area irritated. Do I dare????

B.Kamins Lip Gloss deluxe
This gentle and soothing lip balm with SPF20 will keep your lips feeling moisturized and supple.
This is my second sample of this lip gloss. To me it is just a lip gloss. Ummm yeah… that all.. LOL

Dermalogica Precleanse   deluxe
A lightweight Olive and Apricot Kernel based – cleansing oil, fortified with Kukui Nut, Borage Seed and Rice Bran oils that  gently liquefies sebum and oil-based debris from the skin.
I was hoping this would be in my box. I am not sure what a ‘precleanse’ is but I am hoping this oil based face wash will help with my dehydrated winter skin. I am a little confused as to which skin kit this goes with. Is it a basic step for all of them or just certain ones? I almost scared to try it. I don’t want to fall in love with Dermalogica . They are on the pricier side of cleansers.  This one being $50 for the full sized version…  gulp O_o

Kerastase Cristalliste Luminiere Liquide   vial {rare}{exclusive}
A weightless serum with a radiant shine that will leave the hair shiny, smooth and soft to the touch.
I received a Kerastase Elixir Ultime in my Fall Luxe Box. That one was for colour treated hair. This one is to make your hairs soft and shiny. I have been sporting messed up pony tails for the past few weeks. I have been trying to convince myself that a messy ponytail was chic but NO it is not!! LOL I am in desperate need of a hair cut! So I am going to try this on my ‘tail tomorrow. I want something full and sleek not wild and cavewomanish. Seriously all I need is a bone through the top….

Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette   deluxe {rare}
The fresh and floral infusion of d’iris Eau de Tolilette combines delicate lilyof the valley, powdery violet, sensual cedar and Italian memories of clean ironed linen.
I believe this was my First in Line/reservation pick. At least I am pretty sure it is HAHA it was so long ago I cannot remember. But I am loving this scent. I like more woodsy types of scents anyhow. It was a little bit strong when I first put it on but it mellowed out after a half an hour.


Loose Buttons Kabuki Brush  {exclusive}
A kabuki brush that works with many different types of makeup. This brush is delicately made to accentuate every feature of your beautiful face.
This brush is pretty nice. It is soft and has a medium density. It would prefect for applying face powder or blending out the face. I didn’t notice any shedding but I haven’t also haven’t washed it yet.

I think I preferred the Fall box over the my Winter box. I wish I could get over NOT get any makeup ARGGGG!!! Once I play around with some of these items a bit more maybe I will 'get' happier. I am signed up for a Spring Box so hopefully…..…..


Did any last wavers get the same stuff as me? Or was it just moi?

  1. Hehe, I love your secret message at the end! I didn't get the Essie Nail Polish or Eyeko Mascara either, which I wanted. I'm doing my post now, but I received a CG polish in a very pale pink (which I would never wear...)

    1. Ugh were you part of the last wave of boxes as well? I so wanted to try the Eyeko mascara. I found the Eyeko pen liner I received in my Fall box one of the best I have used. I am using the Elizabeth Grant eye treatment tonight. Here's to hoping my eyes do not blow up tomorrow morning!

    2. Awww! I have my fingers crossed for you!!
