Luxe Box is a quarterly beauty box curated by the same people behind Topbox. While the regular Topbox only ships within Canada, Luxe Box has a US version as well. Both boxes are $26 with free shipping and are sent out every three months. Luxe Box offers some customization options as boxes are being prepared, usually allowing subscribers to choose a foundation shade or a preference for nail polish, for example.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant ($2.20) This skin cream was first created by Elizabeth Arden herself back in the 1930s – and there’s a reason why it’s still used today! It’s reasonably priced for one – and it hydrates and soothes for up to eight hours. I found it light and comfortable to wear.

The sample size is small – 1/10th of the full-size – but should last me a week or so. EA is very popular here in Canada, and it’s even sold at the drugstore!

Cake Beauty Heavy Cream ($10) I freaking LOVE Cake Beauty! They’re Canadian, everything smells AMAZING, and their products are made without parabens, sulfates, or any of that other nasty stuff. They’re vegan and cruelty-free, too! This heavy duty hand repair balm is literally saving my hands right now – despite living in Canada, I hate how rough winter is on my skin. This balm contains 20% shea butter and has a vanilla scent.

Doucce MaxLash Mascara ($22) I’ve tried this mascara before and I actually really like it – it’s not waterproof, but it stays smudge-free all day long which is awesome. Doucce does not test on animals, but some products do contain animal derivatives. Their products also may include parabens, if that is a concern for you personally.

LaRitzy Pro Blender ($16) Please excuse my hand modeling – the shiny surface of this packaging was affecting my lighting. It’s awesome to see a beauty tool included in Luxe Box, and LaRitzy actually has their own subscription as well. This item isn’t actually anywhere on their website, so I think it might be an upcoming product!

Revlon Style Masters Hairspray ($8) Hairspray is kind of boring, and I never really use it, but it’s good to see a very generous sized sample – great for travel!

Ella + Mila Nail Polish ($10.50) Their polish is 7 free, which is great. I love this dusty green color called “Pistache.”

Manna Kadar Priming Lip Wand ($24) This color is called Joie, which I have already, so this is being gifted. I like Manna Kadar’s products even if I feel they’re everywhere in boxes lately.

This month’s Luxe Box was valued at just over $90 USD – it was a nice mix of items. I liked being introduced to a new nail polish line, too!

    I’m getting the Cake hand cream in my Ipsy bag and can’t wait to try it!

      It’s amazing, I am buying the fullsize version since I’ve been using it so frequently.
