Luxe Box Review Spring 2016

Hmmmmm….that’s all I can say about Luxe Box….hmmmm. I really don’t know how I feel about them as of late. I want to love this subscription, but I can’t quite get there. They don’t have the best customer service, their account system on the website is very confusing, and I really wasn’t happy with the Winter box….I found it to be a little blah. However, it is one of the more popular beauty subscription boxes in Canada so I am really trying to give them the benefit of the doubt.

If you aren’t familiar with Luxe Box it is a quarterly beauty subscription box where members receive a seasonal Luxe Box with 7 to 8 trial-sized beauty and lifestyle items specifically selected by their Beauty Editors and enjoy complimentary shipping to their preferred address. Members also receive exclusive access to private events, product launches and beauty tips and tutorials to help them stay trendy, every season.

I still find myself a little confused with Luxe Box……I can’t quite figure out how it works….and the fact that they still have two account systems drives me crazy. I signed up with them a while ago so my account page is on the old system, rather than the new system, and therefore I don’t have access to the same shop page as new subscribers. When the limited edition spring box was released I had to contact customer service just to purchase it…..it was a HUGE pain in my ass. I’m also confused by the package I received as it is supposed to be the Limited Edition Spring Fling Box (I think) but the items I received don’t match the items promised to be in the box. Or is this just the plain ol’ spring box and it contains some of the items from the limited edition box? I’m so confused…..

Luxe Box March 2016 9

ModelCo | BB PLUS Cream in Light (full size) – I don’t typically wear any sort of foundation, but it’s nice to have it in my makeup bag for emergencies…..I also happen to really like a good BB cream.

Jelly Pong Pong | Lychee Gel (full size) – I didn’t use to like receiving shower gel in my subscription boxes, but now I love it. I’m not totally sure how I feel about this brand, the name kind of throws me off, but it smells really good.

Morgan Taylor | Professional Nail Lacquer – I am in LOVE with this color, it is absolutely gorgeous, and it is really making me wish I wore polish on my fingernails.

PopBeauty | Kajal Pen in Inky Purple (full size) – This is perfect! I wear purple liner all the time as it compliments my brown eyes, and I am almost at the end of my Almay pencil. This one claims to be very pigmented, which is something I look for in a liner as I feel it is easier to apply and doesn’t pull on the delicate skin around your eyes.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor – This is such a simple item, and one that can be purchased at any drugstore, but I actually like to see items like this in my subscription boxes. I will definitely be using this. Sometimes I want the necessities in addition to the “nice to haves”.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer – This is a best seller so it’s definitely nice to see it in the box…I’m just not a fan as I don’t wear foundation. It will be gifted to a friend.

Benefit the PoreFessional – I’ve received this more times than I can remember…..in other subscription boxes….so I’m kind of over it.

Thoughts: I’m on the fence with my Spring Luxe Box. Half of the items are great and half of them or just ok. I’m a little confused by the difference between the limited edition boxes and the regular boxes, and I’m disappointed that my package arrived in a gold bubble mailer rather than their typical shipping box. It’s hard to have confidence in a subscription that seems so disorganized. I really want to love them, but I can’t. I would like to see them fix the account system on their website, be a little more clear about product offerings, and provide better customer service……come on Luxe Box…..we need quality subscription boxes in Canada, and you have the potential to be one of those……but you need to get your crap together before that can happen.

XOXO

    I received my Summer Box last week. Omg, they sent me black nail polish (for summer???); some nasty, never-heard-of-brand of the blackest black mascara, not waterproof; the smallest, cheapest looking blush I’ve ever seen (I’ve seen better at Dollar stores); a liquid lip that also looked like it came from a Dollar Store; a small face cream sample that I have never heard of that worked out to be worth about $7 (if you believe that the full size was as much as they say); a tiny can of Cake dry shampoo; some gel goo you put your feet in $3; and a soap rhat looked like a Popsicle. Hated everything except the Cake dry shampoo. Not a whiff of Benefit, Caudalie, Smashbox anywhere, not even a brand I’be heard of except Cake. I’m really disappointed and if they plan on sending me another pathetic box like that for Fall that some giy in a warehouse curated (if they actually believe that I’m going to buy that an actual professional decided black nail polish was a great, inspired idea for Summer, they’re dumber than they think I am). Overall, even after my first box, I would say “don’t bother”. It’s garbage and not worth your money and not worth waiting 3 months for.
