136: luxe box by loose button review

I've always been a huge girly-girl with an obsession with beauty products. I started off my beauty addiction with buying giant collections of bonne bell lip smacker lip glosses & cheap drugstore brands of makeup (or my mom's leftover makeup) to experiment with. Now that I'm a bit older, I've converted to only buying more expensive, high quality products & being more careful with what I use on my face & skin.

The problem with this has been that skincare & beauty is getting expensive for me! It's hard to 100% trust online reviews of products because everyone's skin is different (and I have uber-sensitive dry skin with an allergy to overly scented products & a tendency to break out in eczema. damn.) and buying a full-sized product only to find out that it's not for me? That sucks.

For that reason, I mainly stick with the same skincare products through & through. It's always the same bar of soap, the same facewash, the same moisturizer & it's kinda boring to NOT be discovering what's new out there.

Well, I was just recently introduced to a new Canadian company called Loose Button & I was instantly drawn to their product called "Luxe Box".

"Luxe Box is a innovative beauty subscription service that allows customers to try beauty products in the comfort of their own home before buying them full-sized."

The people at Loose Button were kind enough to send us the May Luxe Box for review!


As promised, it arrived in a pretty package tied with a bow!


the branding was so beautiful & it even came with a card...


The card details all the surprise products that you have received in that month's box! It's a bit of background on what the product is & how to use it if the package doesn't already cover the deets :)


So we got these 4 awesome products & the first thing that I noticed was how large they all were. I usually get little one-time use samples but these are more like travel-sizes, which is cool cause you can get a better feel for the product.


So obviously, I reached for the nail polish first & threw on a couple of coats ASAP! China glaze is one of my fave brands, so I was happy to see that I'd gotten a new colour to add to my collection!


Next, I decided to try this microfoliant by dermalogica. I was mesmerized because I have never tried an exfoliant that is powder based! I've only ever used exfoliants that are in a watery gel format with big ass beads or sugar crystals that slough away at my face. With this, you just sprinkle some of the fine powder into your wet hands & make a paste. Both Sam & I loved it because it was uber-gentle (it didn't even really feel like an exfoliator) but after rinsing it away, you could instantly feel that your face was smoother. I actually can't wait to get my hands on more products from this brand.


The packaging of this Consonant Organic Olive Oil Soap had me reeled in because... it seemed like they were talking to ME. I love organic soaps so much & the fresh natural smell of them. This bar contains like, 4 ingredients? & it makes my sensitive/dry skin feel soft & smooth :)

I definitely want to check out more by Consonant but for now, I'm entering the contest to win some products from the Loose Button Giveaway! GO!

Check out the full details on how to sign up for the Luxe Box subscription service on Loose Button. You can get the box monthly for as low as $10 including shipping! It's currently only available in Canada but they are working on expanding soon.

  2. Ooh! This is really similar to Birch Box, which is currently only available in the US. I just signed up this month, so I should be getting my box in the next couple of weeks or so. I hope it's as awesome as this one!
