December Luxe Box

23 Dec

I’ve been subscribing to Luxe Box since July. Generally I’ve been quite pleased with them and the November box was fabulous. Lots of samples and a good mix of products.

Here’s December’s box:

I do like the personalized stickers on the tissue paper.

Ta da!

So what’s in this month’s box?

Samples of Paco Rabanne 1 Million for men and Lady Million for Women.

I don’t like the women’s fragrance at all. I gave the men’s to my husband and he likes it alright. Not impressed with the size of these samples – they’re the same size that you get from the department store.

Yves Rocher Italian Mandarin Shower Gel

Again, not keen on the smell of this. I’ve used Yves Rocher products before and generally, they’re pretty good.

DDF Advanced Firming Cream

I haven’t tried this yet. The full sized product is $140 so looking forward to giving it a try.

NYX Eye Pencil in Black

This is this month’s full size product – a $4 drug store brand eyeliner. Not overly impressed. It doesn’t seem like a bad eyeliner at all, but for a “deluxe sample box”, I don’t think this really fits in. A more interesting colour would have been a bit more exciting.

Overall impression of this month’s Luxe Box – meh. I’m only excited about one of 4 samples (I’m counting both fragrance samples as one). The fragrance samples are tiny and the eyeliner is something that I can get from Pharma Plus so not deluxe at all. I really liked last month’s box (skin care by Benefit, nail polish) so I’ll keep Luxe Box for another month and see how it goes. Its slightly more expensive then Glymm ($13.56 for Luxe, Glymm is $11.30) and they seem to have all kinds of issues with their shipping. If I was basing my decision whether to continue my subscription or not on December’s box, I would cancel. But I’m hoping that January is better.
