My Luxe Box Arrived!

Yay! I have to say I was super excited when I got home to see it was here. I thought that I had missed it yesterday, but it was a different package I had to pick up. Double the mail is even better! 

If you aren't sure what I'm so excited about see my post about it here. Or if you're not into extra reading, I'll give you the Reader's Digest version: Luxe Box is a type of subscription service provided by Loose Button where they send you 3-5 deluxe samples for $9.95. It lets you sample high end products without the high end price. It was also nice to see that this month a portion of the price was donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

When I first opened the adorable box, I was greeted by my "menu"  (it has a listing of everything in the box) a little chocolate and a daffodil pin.  The menu has a little description of the products including a photo of the full size item and price. It also has a little note to the recipient (me!) and this month included a coupon code for one of the brands in the box. I blurred it out, because I don't know if they'd be happy about me sharing it online. 

On what you really want to know: What's inside?

Elizabeth Grant Lubricating Body Treatment
Principessa Ultimate Softening Shampoo and  Conditioner
Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara

Overall I'm really pleased with the selection and based on their "Upcoming Brands" page I am very interested to see what they'll send out in the next box.  I usually hoard samples like these and tuck them away for "the right time" but I've made a promise to myself that I will actually use these. I plan on trying the mascara tomorrow. Anyone tried it yet? 

Have you ever tried a service like this? What did you think of it?

    Yeah, I'm going to sign up for the three month run. I'm going to stick with it and see what else they offer up. Are you going to get it again?

    @Vintage Makeup
    I know! I love the idea :D

    @Ms Bubu
    I wonder if there is anything like it in the UK? This is the alternative to the American one (Birchbox) Now you have me curious, I might jus thave to look into that!

    Lol! It's true, I've asked myself the same thing... If I traveled more I'd have a better reason, but I don't so I am just going to use them. I used the mascara this morning!

    @Pammy
    Thanks! No nail polish like in your Birchbox though! lol

    @Priscilla
    I found Birchbox first and was totally bummed that they didn't ship to Canada, which made me do a little searching and found Luxe Box. Do you get Birchbox?
