April 2012 Loose Button Luxe Box

Finally – my last beauty box post and I am done catching up on my blog posts. phew. Now I just need to stay on top of these posts.

Another disappointing box for the month of April – not that it even came in April. I didn’t get my April Luxe Box until May 3.

I was able to get a pair of panties for my first in line item. I thought that was really neat – and they came fast, a few days before my Luxe Box even arrived. They were really cute too. I think the pantybypost.com is a neat idea – might be a fun gift for someone.

April 2012 Loose Button Luxe Box

Panty By Post (single panty $12-$30)
Seche Ridge Filling Base Coat 3.6 ml (full size 15 ml $7)
BioSilk Silk Therapy 15 ml (full size 260 ml $55)
Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light Shampoo + Conditioner 50 ml each (full size 375 ml $6 each)

The panties totally made the box worth it but everything else was kind of meh. The Pantene Pro-V smells good – but not really a deluxe sample in my books. At least they actually got this sample right and gave us more then one use – but these are sometimes free in the P&G Brandsampler packs.

I am looking forwarding to trying the Seche Ridge Filling Base Coat – this will be handy for me. I don’t own a base coat and have been too cheap to buy one. With summer almost here it is toe nail painting season, I am sure this product will get some use.

I do love BioSilk Silk Therapy but I have a large bottle already. Not Loose Buttons fault though. I guess this box just felt a bit disappointing when I opened it because I had already got the panties so the box seemed kind of empty. Looking back now it actually wasn’t that bad.

If you are thinking about signing up for a Luxe Box by Loose Button I would love if you could use my link. I am still one sign up short from a free box.

April 2012 Glymm Beauty Box Review

This was my last Glymm Box and it was a bit disappointing and made me happy with my decision to cancel. Although, I did see posts of the May 2012 Glymm Box and it looked pretty awesome – might have to re-subscribe if Glymm continues to improve.

April 2012 Glymm Box

Free Your Mane Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo & Conditioner 7.4 ml each (full size 300 ml $16.00)
Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Fragrance (full size 30 ml $60)
Lucia Soap No.6 – Wild Ginger & Fresh Fig (full size 8 soaps $17.50)
Mai Couture Social Gloss in Flirtini full size 5 ml $28.00

More perfume samples – eh. It does smell good (like oranges!), but again – sick of perfume samples! Ditto for the silly shampoo and conditioner samples – like this little tiny bit is going to sell me a product. The soap is nice and cute but still it’s just a little bar of soap and can’t see how such a small bar is worth $2.00. The lip gloss is the only thing going for this box. It looks like a terrible pale cream colour but when you put it is just goes on kinda clear and looks nice. It feels okay – a little thick and sticky for my liking. It does feel and look like a high end product but it doesn’t WOW me – it is by far the best thing in the box though and I am sure I will use it.

There was also a card in the box to save $100 at numeonline.com – but it’s only valid on things close to $200 (hair extensions and styling tools). Not really worth it to me as I have never even heard of them before.
