March 2012 Loose Button Luxebox and Contest! (CLOSED)

Last week I was contacted from the nice people at Loose Button about reviewing the March 2012 box and another little goodie (which I’ll get to in a bit).  Although I don’t have a subscription with the company, I did have a chance to review the December and January boxes and have been very happy with the contents, company, and overall packaging of the product.

To sum it up real quick, the Loose Button Luxebox is a monthly Canadian beauty subscription service, where you get pay C$12 a month and you receive a box filled with four to five deluxe goodies.  Although the service mostly gives out beauty-related items, I have gotten coffee and chocolates in my boxes, which was a nice little surprise.

The March box marks Loose Button’s first year anniversary, so they threw in a special “thank you” seeded card that will grow into a plant.  I don’t know if these things actually work but it’s a pretty cool idea.

On to my box!

Made for me! Love this little detail.

Alright, so not going to lie, I’m a bit disappointed with the contents of the March box.  Compared to the December (where I got a pair of Velour lashes) and January’s (that came with an extra bath and body box), the March one is a bit of a let down.  Don’t get me wrong the contents are good brands, but it didn’t blow me away.

My March 2012 Luxebox included the following:

  • Prevage Face Advanced Anti-Aging Serum 5 ml (full size 50ml retails for $159.  Sample worth $15.90)
  • J. R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion 29 ml (full size 325 ml retails for $10).  There was also a coupon for $1 off any J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion at Shopper’s Drug Mart
  • Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner 9 ml each (full size 236 ml retails for $28)
  • Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Color Care Rapid Results Moisture Mask 2 x 8.6 g (198 g retails for $45)
  • China Glaze Electric Beat nail polish full size (approx. retail C$8)

Looking at the items and brands, it is a good box in theory but when it comes down to it, I don’t really need anti-aging serums because I’m only 23 (I’m giving my mom this product), I have hand and body creams up the ying yang so I don’t really need anymore (plus this sample was only half full), and I got some sample shampoo and conditioner packs with my March 2012 Topbox (although they were Redken).  With that being said about the last point, I got some Fekkai samples in my January Luxebox and I really liked them so I am quite excited to try this formula.  I did enjoy getting the China Glaze polish, and although it’s pretty, it’s not really a colour that I would have picked out, but we will see how it looks on the nails.

To sum it up, my review does sound more negative then I mean it to be.  Part of the excitement about receiving these subscription services is the excitement in opening the box. Although the March box isn’t as good as the December and January boxes (or even the March 2012 Topbox), my heart still skipped a beat opening it up.

Now onto the fun part! The kind folks at Loose Button gave the opportunity to give a May box away to one lucky reader!  To enter the contest, you must be a Canadian resident and a subscriber of this blog (you can subscribe at the top of the sidebar on the homepage), also leave me a comment with what brand you would love to see in an upcoming Luxebox!  I would love to get a bottle of Seche Vite or a Deborah Lippmann nail polish (like the November Topbox), or even another pair of Velour Lashes (they are so fab!).

Contest officially opens today and ends April 20, 2012. The winner will be chosen through random.org.  If the winner does not reply with their address within five days another winner will be chosen (the box will be shipped directly from Loose Button).  I look forward to your answers and good luck!

Did you receive the March 2012 Loose Button Luxebox?  If so, what were your thoughts?

Please note I did receive this product for review purposes; however, all opinions are my honest own :).

    I would love to have some fake lashes, so I can try a really great brand and see how i like them before I commit to buying some. I also love nail polish and getting new colors is always fun.

    I honestly, would have been quite happy with that box! So far, the boxes I have gotten weren’t as fun as this one. That blue nail polish is what I’m looking for, so I would have been thrilled..and full size! 🙂

    I’m now following your blog via email. Thanks for the chance!

    I do not have a subscription as of yet but got one for my sister in law for xmas. She loves it! I recently tried to join but am on a waiting list. Hoping soon I will get a first box! I would love to see. I am interested in trying the Edward Bess products that I have seen recently, it would be great to have that included in a box in the near future

    I would really like to see a lip scrub- not sure of any brands but I keep on hearing how good they are….
    Jane Iredale makes one.

    A brand I would like to see and have never tried is Fresh. They seem to have neat products!

    I’d be so excited to see some Makeup Forever products! Or a facial spray like the one in the March Glossybox, since it would be great for the summer.

    I know that few girls received Lise Watier, but I didn’t and I would love to received make-up from that brand. I’m a huge fan!

    In my march Luxe Box, I received : Myscent program (Sheer Beauty by CK, Lola by Marc Jacobs, Rebelle by Rihanna), Cargo eyeshadow, Mereadesso body balm 30 ml, and the Face-advanced anti-aging serum. And like you, I’m 25 years old, so I don’t need that anti-aging serum! :/

    Love your blog!

    I would love to see a sample of a high end serum, I’m not sure what brands Luxebox is partnered with but it’s always great to have small samples to try out before shelling out money for a full-size.
