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.
They have new packaging — the new box is shallower and they have eliminated the drawstring bag.
Everything in my box!
La Ritzy Lipliner in “Retro Red” ($18) I have received this lipliner before, so it’s a handy backup as it’s a universal red. La Ritzy cosmetics are paraben and cruelty free.
Medusa’s Makeup Witch Lash Mascara ($12) Medusa’s Makeup has a monthly sub with a long waitlist, so it’s exciting to get to try one of their products!
Sweet Suds Co Popsicle Soap ($?) While it’s nice to get a handmade item in the box, this didn’t really excite me very much. My friend loves funky soaps though, so she’ll love this.
Cake The Do-Gooder Dry Shampoo ($11) This travel size version of their dry shampoo is great for tucking into a gym bag or your purse for on the go touch-ups. I’m trying to cut down on how much hair washing I do, since my red colour fades the more I wash it. I’ll give this a try to freshen up my roots.
Paradise Pearlized Blush ($19) Manna Kadar is unfortunately a brand I am very, very tired of. Their products are fine but they show up so frequently it’s hard to get excited about a brand you already know. This cherry blossom shade has a slight sheen. No swatch as this one is going right to my sister!
China Glaze Polish in “Kill the Lights” I like how this polish is a neutral pink but isn’t too neutral, if that makes sense!
AvryBeauty Lavender Jelly Spa Bath ($2.99) This is a cool product: you fill a foot bath with water, add Packet 1 and the water turns to jelly! Then you soak your feet in the jelly, and finally add Packet 2 to turn it back into water for a further soak and safe to rinse down the drain. I’m not a lavender fan so this is going into a care package, but I would have loved to have tried the rose one!
Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb ($7.60) I saved the best for last! Belif is a Korean skincare line that is carried at Sephora due to its popularity. The Aqua Bomb version is a light gel cream which is suitable for normal, combo, or oily skin. I’m normal so this will suit my skin just fine.
Luxe Box tends to go through ups and downs in terms of consistency of quality, which is frustrating. The summer box was an improvement for my preferences — I’m excited about the dry shampoo, mascara, polish and the cream.
