December Luxe Box & Glymm Box

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Merry Christmas Eve!

I had some free time before I actually have to do something productive, so I decided to post my December Glymm/Luxe Boxes.

I received them in the mail last week but they came the very next day after I had already left the city to head north to spend the holidays with my family. I had to wait for my boyfriend to deliver them to me. Anxiously, I might add.

I've also filmed a quick video to go along with this post but that won't be up until after Christmas.

Let's start with my Glymm box!


I received four products (one was full-size), a $10 gift card for Glymm's Beauty Boutique, and white & red Jelly Bellies.

1. Caudalie - Vinoperfect Enzymatic Peel mask

I love masks and peels so I am excited to try this. The sample is fairly small, which means that it will probably only last one or two uses.

2. YSL - La Parisenne

This is such a lovely fragrance -- it is florally and feminine -- and the bottle is so cute! Virtually a mini replica of the full-size bottle.

3. Ahava - Mineral Hand Cream

I always have a hand creme with me, especially in the winter. I've used this a couple times and I that it leaves your hands feeling moisturized but not greasy. Plus, it smells great!

4. Sula - Natural Lip Gloss

I have only tried Sula's Paint & Peel nail polishes before so I'm happy to be able to try their lip gloss. This is the full-size of the lip gloss and it is in the color summer fling. A bright pink with gold shimmer. It is quite sheer on the lips though. I wish it was as vibrant on as it looks in the tube.

The great thing about this gloss is that it is all natural, so you don't have to worry about parabens and other toxins.

Now moving on to December's Luxe Box!



I got a lot of stuff in this month's Luxe Box, mostly Morrocanoil. If you recall, I received an expired Morrocanoil product in last month's Luxe Box, so I received products in lieu of that in this month's box.

I am quite pleased with Loose Button's customer service and in the way that they handled this.

There was also a little Christmas postcard from the founders of Loose Button and a little chocolate coin with the Loose Button logo stamped on it (super cute and delicious).

1. Nina Ricci Fragrance Samples

I already own a Nina Ricci fragrance (I believe it is the same as one of these samples) and I am on the fence about it. When I purchased it, I loved it but now I'm not so sure. L'Air du Temps is one of Nina Ricci's more iconic fragrances, while Nina is a more fresh and fruity scent.

2. DDF - Advanced Firming Cream

This month's Luxe Box was a little different because you were able to choose between 2 products that you could receive in your box. The choice was between a Kerastase hair serum and this DDF firming cream. I chose the latter because I already received the Kerastase product in a previous box.

I have yet to try this product, but I am very excited to.

3. Morrocanoil hair products

I received the Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner and the Luminous hairspray. I have not tried either of the products yet, so I can't comment on that. The sample sizes provide a good amount of product in them. I especially love the hairspray. It is perfect for traveling or just carrying around with you.

4. NYX - Slim Eye Pencil

This is a full-sized product. I own a NYX pencil already in brown and I love it. Goes on smoothly without tugging on the sensitive skin around your eyes. It also can double as an eyebrow pencil.

Overall...

I am happy with both boxes and the products I have received. I think my favourite box this month was my Luxe Box.

I am looking forward to what products the new year will bring!

Again, merry Christmas Eve!!
