April 2012 Luxe Box Review

My latest Luxe Box was filled with delightful things!

Everything seemed to follow a bit of a purple theme, along with it being Daffodil Month in April — for April’s box you could donate one of your products to support the cause, and they also sent a daffodil pin in the box. It’s kind of lazy charity because I didn’t really do anything to support Daffodil Month, but at least it’s something.

From the top, left to right, there was the aforementioned pin, a full-sized Essie nail polish, Pantene Aqua Light shampoo and conditioner, BOBOS Remi leave-in conditioner spray, and Yves Rocher eye makeup remover for sensitive eyes.

The pin is really cute but I’m not a pin wearer so I’ll have to find something on which to stick it. I’m excited about the nail polish, even though purple isn’t really my favourite colour for fingers, because a) I’ve never tried Essie and b) it looks fun on my toes.

I used the other four products right away — as much as I kind of thought Pantene, seriously, I thought this was supposed to be fancy stuff I like the idea of silicone-free products with my crazy hair. I used the shampoo and conditioner then followed it up with the BOBOS spray and, while my hair is still out of control, it feels soft and smells good. Once I get a haircut I’ll be happy!

The eye makeup remover was perfectly timed because I don’t have any left and was just about to get some. I wasn’t patient enough to follow the instructions (soak a cotton pad and hold it on your eye for a minute before wiping away) so when I woke up this morning there was still eye makeup that had migrated onto my face. Still, I have sensitive eyes, and I’m willing to bet if I follow the rules this is a product I’ll use.

I’m glad I got products that I’ll use, this time around — everything seems a bit more age appropriate. I think I had initially figured I’d be getting more makeup samples, but I’m happy with things like hair products and nail polish, too!

    I signed up for a Glymm box and was really disappointed. Definitely going to switch to Luxe.

      I’ve been curious about the difference between the two!

    I requested a luxe box, is that what you did?

      I think so! When I signed up there was no waiting list, though.
