Monthly Deluxe Samples? My First LuxeBox from Loose Button

Ever wanted a box of deluxe samples delivered to your door?

Well, now you can have it! (and yes canadian beauties, that means you too!) No more complaining that Birchbox doesnt shop to Canada, because Loose Button does! and at $10 a month for several deluxe samples from a range of very nice brands, i look forward to that time of the month when my LuxeBox shows up in my mailbox! Read on to find out what I got in my very first LuxeBox!

in comparison to my iphone 4 for size

the packaging is amazing!
It comes in an adorable box wrapped with a super cute bow :) and everything inside comes neatly wrapped in some tissue paper :) i am a sucker for packaging and well, props to Loose Button for making it feel like its christmas all over again! <3

and to make everything easier, Loose Button provides a nice list of descriptions of the samples you are getting, so even if you havent heard of the brand or the type of product, you can easily learn about what you are getting :)

Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara - 
This was the only makeup related sample i got, but i am very happy with it! I have yet to fully test it out, (future review to come) but i am really liking the wand! It narrows down to a smaller brush at the tip so it makes it super easy to coat my lower lashes, something i have lots of trouble with considering i have almost NO bottom lashes lol

Principessa - Ultimate Softening Shampoo and Conditioner
I have yet to test any hair products from this brand although i've sampled some of their raspberry hand cream at Smashing Cosmetica and it smelled amazingly good. These come in adorable pink containers that are packed FULL of the shampoo and conditioner. I dont normally do hair products reviews, but if anyones interested, i can post a review for these :)

Elizabeth Grant - Gentle Cleanser and Body Treatment
Again, havent really tested out this brand before but thats the goodness of these LuxeBoxes! :) both of these sound very interesting in the descriptions, and i am excited to be testing these! However, since i am going to be leaving on a grad trip shortly, i dont feel brave enough to test out new products on a trip lol. I'll be testing these once i get back so if you're looking for a review, you might have to wait a bit.

oh, forgot to mention, they also included a nice little note explaining what they are etc and also, that they included a Daffodil pin this month in honor of Cancer Awareness Month and to show that a portion of the $10 has been donated to the Canadian Cancer Society. How thoughtful! I LOVE companies who pay back to society <3 makes me feel good about giving them my money lol


As with my other reviews, i'll start with the good:
For merely $10 a month (thats including shipping!), you get 3-5 deluxe samples in every box :) Although it doesnt sound like much, these samples are not just those little 0.00005 oz packages containing barely enough to use, these are deluxe sized & travel sized which gives you quite a decent amount of product to test not just once!

Also, you get a nice mix of different varieties of products including makeup, skincare and hair care etc. This mix is completely random and chosen by the team at Loose Button. Although you might not always get what you want, you'll most likely end up getting some brands you already love and some new brands to test out! I really love the idea behind this and taking a peek at the list of upcoming brands, i am SO excited for my next LuxeBox to come in! <3

and then theres the bad:
although i cant say this will go for every LuxeBox as this was just my first time, I was a tad disappointed that out of the items i received, only ONE of them was makeup related. The rest was skincare and hair products which usually i would love, but for the past while, i've been only really interested in new makeup products since i have found a steady hair & skincare routine that i'd like to stick to.

Of course, this is just my own personal opinion and im sure that the next LuxeBoxes will have more makeup samples, so overall. im still pretty happy with this service and have already signed up for another box! :)
