April Luxebox

Finally!  I got mine! It arrived May 1, which was a little surprising because I remember when I first started subscribing, they would arrive in a timely manner, and within the month.  I don't know what's happening with all these subscription boxes!  At least I was able to get my first in line item, despite all the issues that they've been having.  I know that their Facebook page blew up with complaints and all the such.  I think that we should be so lucky to be able to choose a "guaranteed" product, which many other boxes do not offer.  


When I first opened my box, my nose was assaulted by delightful smells!  OMG!  It smells so good!!!!


ESSIE - NAIL POLISH IN BROOCH THE SUBJECT
Full Size : $8 for 15ml
Box size: full size
This was my first in line pick.  The colour is very neutral.  When I put it on, it looks like I have no fingernails!  LOL!  I do like the colour, but I think that I might have to give this one away.


SECHE - RIDGE FILLING BASE COAT
Full size: $7 for 15 ml
Box size: $!.68 for 3.6ml
I own this base coat already, but since it's a small sample bottle that it would be perfect for travelling.  Seche is NOT a 3 free product, so it has a really intense smell to it. 


CHI - SILK FUSION
full size : $33 for 180ml
box size: $2.75 for 15 ml
I think that this is the second one that I've received from beauty boxes.  I have yet to use either of them!  This is a reconstructing treatment that is supposed to protect your hair against thermal styling and environmental damages.  So...i'm not sure if these are just silk drops or protectant drops?  Looks like it does both, but I'm used to using spray protectants that this one might take some getting used to!  It smells really good though.


PANTENE PRO-V AQUA LIGHT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
full size : shampoo $6 for 375ml, conditioner $6 for 375ml
box size: shampoo and conditioner $0.80 each for 50ml
I know that a lot of people were disappointed to receive this product in their Luxebox, but I'm pretty happy to have received this.  I've seen a few commercials for this product and was going to purchase it anyways, but now I get to try it without having to waste $6 on it.  I've always been a huge Pantene fan because I love the way that their shampoos always leave my hair so nice and silky.  And now that they've come out with a sulfate free, you can't go wrong!


Total Value of this month's box: $14.03.  Ummmm....I paid $12 for this box.
Rating of this month's box: I don't know.  I really liked the products in this box, the value of this box was a little disappointing.  I already know that I'll probably be giving away the Essie and Chi items.  Even if I ended up loving the Chi item, I probably wouldn't ever pay full price for it.  


What did you think of your LuxeBox?

  1. I got pretty much the same thing as you. Mine is Essie Pink-a-boo which is a light baby pink with a bit of shimmer which I thought I wouldn't like but end up loving it. I have cancelled my Luxe Box and subscribed to Glossy Box instead.

    1. I think that I'll be following your lead and cancelling LuxeBox real soon too. Which is kind of sad because they were my first beauty box subscription. :(

  2. I have Brooch the Subject and it is very nude, but I use it for nail art instead. I was surprised when I added up the total cost of my box too! It was much lower than any other box I had received...hope next month's is better if you decide to stick with it!

    1. I'm going to give it a couple more months...or at least two...I understand that there's always going to be crappy box once in a while so I'm going to give them a chance. :)

  4. sorry that this box was a bit of a miss for you, I've seen worse boxes though! I am not a huge fan of hair treatments in boxes- I wish they'd lay off of sending those so frequently !

    1. Me too! It seems to be their fall back filler products! UGH! I could open a mini salon with all these products. :P

  5. It's too bad these are not in the states, it looks like a really good box! Too bad they are having issues with the guaranteed item but at the same time I like that they offer that because at least you know you will get on thing you like and or want to try for sure.

  6. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog! I received almost the same box, except my Essie was a shade of lilac purple that I do not like. Ah well! Great blog, I love the theme of beauty/games :)
