Loose Button Luxebox Spring 2013

Follow on Bloglovin
Hey guys!

I received my Luxebox in the mail yesterday. I have to say, I had high hopes for the Steven & Chris themed Luxebox, and I found that it wasn't anything special really. *Disclaimer: When I say it wasn't anything special, I mean I've received better boxes in the past from them. I didn't dislike this box, but it could have been better. I have seen other people receive things that I would have preferred instead* Just take a look, and you will understand:

First of all, the packaging was good... it did match the theme, and was very cute.

Inside was this little Spring Trends report pamphlet, with a few of the products that were to be in the Luxeboxes.

They did include the bag, like they did last time which I really like and will put to good use.

OK. So I have a beauty blender and I am excited to see whether this will compare. I like beauty sponges, don't get me wrong. But this one didn't even come with a brand on it. How am I supposed to know where to get this if I like it? I'm kind of disappointed that there was no product card for this item (the spring trends one was missing some of the things I received).

I haven't tried this lip balm... but I have so many already. Not sure what to do with it yet. I will probably stick it in my stash.

I already received one of these Lâncome Génifique serums in my advent calendar from Loose Button... Gave it to my mom, but I may try it myself.

As for this (Kérastase Bain Chroma Captive Shampoo) I may give it a try. It's for coloured hair (mine is). I am not unhappy, nor am I happy to receive this. I'm ok with shampoo samples, but I don't get excited for them.

This is one of the only things I'm super excited to try. I recently did a swap with a friend and she mentioned that she loved L'Occitane hand cream, so I sent her some. I have really dry hands. This will hopefully help. Tiny sample, but the usual cream at Sephora isn't gigantic anyway.

I wasn't super excited for these, but I will try them. Maybe. Or maybe I will put them away to swap. I'm not sure yet. But in case you are wondering, it is Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer. My under eyes do get dry... I have huge issues with most concealers. In case you have the same problem, try Essence Stay All Day Concealer, it's been working for me like no other concealer lately. It doesn't get cakey and dry up my under eyes.

Well I was originally excited for this, but it doesn't smell like something I'd wear tbh. I've never heard of the brand, but I'm willing to give it a try. Fragrantica says that the most prominent notes are incense, patchouli, and spices, which explains the smell. It reminds me of something else, but I can't put my finger on it. It might be YSL Opium  or YSL Belle D'Opium which both have similar notes... Great now I have three fragrances that I have received from Loose Button that smell very similar, and will all take a lot of getting used to. I usually prefer fruity, floral, or sweet fragrances.

In general, I'm not excited about this. Maybe two or three things I like, the rest is just OK. Reviews will come soon enough. I will keep you posted. BTW this is my last Luxebox, until I decide to re-sub. So right now I only have Ipsy. I need to start reviewing them on my blog again - sorry guys!
