May 2012 Luxe Box Review

Happy that this box made it in time this month. I am not sure how much longer I will continue with my Loose Button Luxe Box’s. The May box was actually really good – but I am just not a huge fan of their customer service anymore. I find it disappointing that they ship so late. They don’t give any updates on their Facebook and they turned their wall off. According to the member area all boxes were supposed to ship by the 25th, but my friend’s didn’t ship until the 28th. I just feel like Loose Button is starting to go downhill – much like Glymm did.

But the May box was really good and totally worth it. I did see a lot of other reviews were people got a hot pink Essie nail polish – I was really hoping for that because it looks amazing – I might have to go pick one up!

There were two boxes this month, a regular Luxe Box and a Bath and Body Box. Similar to the Janaury box.

May 2012 Luxe Box Review

CARGO lip Gloss Quad full size $25
Kerastase Masque Chroma Riche 30 ml (full size 200 ml $57)
Philosophy Purity Made Simple 30 ml (full size 237 ml $28)
Taylor Swift Wonderstuck 10 ml (full size 50 ml $63)
Amazing Grace Eau De Parfum 1.5 ml (full size 60 ml $65)

In the Bath and Body box:
Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex 7 ml
Gillette Venus & Olay Razor and Five-Blade Cartridge

More perfume. *sigh* I was at least happy to see another roll on one, really like this style of perfume sample. Not overly crazy about the smell – a little too strong and thick for my taste; I really like nice light and fresh scents. But more little tubes… seriously, I could open a perfume sample store! I don’t even know what to do with these anymore – a girl can only have so many and I probably have 10-15 now.

The CARGO lip Gloss Quad looks pretty awesome. I really am starting to get such a huge collection of lip glosses – guess a girl can never have too many though! At least not this girl, I have been obsessed with lip products for as long as I can remember.

Happy with the other items as well – some of this stuff might be handy to pack for the Honeymoon that we just booked to Mexico! I am terrible for using up these samples so hopefully I can put some to good use.

I figure the box to be worth $50+ – I am too tired to do the exact math. Pretty good I think. But my collection of samples really is getting too large – how does everyone else manage to use them all up?

There was also a promo code for $20 off a pantybypost.com subscription but I don’t see myself using it. The promo code is loosebutton20 for anyone interested in ordering. It expires June 30, 2012.

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.

November Loose Button Luxe Box Review

I mentioned previously that I received my Luxe Box by Loose Button. I figured it is the last day of the month now and it should be safe to review without ruining any surprises for anyone.

November Luxe Box by Loose Button

This is the first Luxe Box I have revived and I LOVED it. Really impressed and look forward to receiving more. I also signed up for Glymm Box this month and will be receiving my first one of that next month. One quick note about Glymm Box, if you sign up using my link you get 100 bonus points and that is good for $10 off a full size product. You don’t have to use my link but I am mentioning because no one told me and I am sad that I missed out on my free $10!

Back to my Luxe Box.

November Loose Button Luxe Box Review

What’s Inside:

Lisa Watier Plumpissimo Le Gloss 1.1ml in Nude (full size: 6.2ml $20)
Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub 22ml (full size 75ml $32)
Moroccanoil Styling Cream 75ml (full size 250ml $32)
Benefit Cosmetics B. Right! Moisture Prep Toning Lotion 8.9ml (full size 177.4ml $29)
BONUS: Teaopia Cactus Fig Tea Kit (full size 50g $7)

I have actually bought the Lisa Watier Plumpissimo Le Gloss in Nude before! It is an amazing lip gloss! The box was so cute and put together so nicely. I like how they personalize the boxes and I notice that people get different variations of the boxes. It is fun to see what everyone else got. The box includes a cute little card telling you about everything you got. So fun.

The Moroccanoil Styling Cream is expired but Moroccanoil and Loose Button are making up for it next month – it was so nice of them to send out an email to let us know. I actually haven’t tried anything in the box yet… not sure what I am waiting for, I better get on that because soon I am going to have TWO boxes!
