Luxe Box May and June Editions


I recently received my second Luxe Box, so here’s my overdue review of the May and June editions. Like I mentioned in my Glossybox entry back in May, I unsubscribed from that service and switched to Luxe Box instead. I disliked about Glossybox that what I received was pharmacy products, so I didn’t feel very excited about getting my monthly package in the mail. Fortunately, Luxe Box is a mix of low and mid range products so it’s more what I was expecting.

Anyway, I ended up unsubscribing after the June edition, because they will now be sending a bigger box every 3 months instead of being a monthly thing. To me, getting something in the mail every month was part of the excitement so I wasn’t too happy about that change. Hopefully, I won’t have to wait much longer before I can get the Top Box (Yes, I’m trying another one!)


The May products came in 2 separate boxes. There was a total of 6 samples that month.

The white box contained Olay products. Venus & Olay razor (full size!) and Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex sample (7 mL).

2 samples from Orlane: Magnificent Hair Care Intensive Restructuring Treatment (7 mL) and Active Hydration Body Care (7 mL). I haven’t tried the hair treatment yet, but I don’t really care for the smell of the body cream. It smells old lady-ish.

Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum from Paco Rabane. Didn’t like the smell.

Cargo LashActivator Duo. The white tube is to be applied at night and the black tube is plain mascara. The product promises thicker, longer lashes in 30 days. I haven’t tried it yet.


Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips (Full size!) I’ve been curious about nail polish strips for a while. I’m glad I can finally try it, but it’s too bad I don’t like the print.

Philosophy Purity 3-in-1 cleansing gel for face and eyes (30 mL)

Olay Professional Eye restoration complex (15 mL). Another anti aging product by Olay! I’m happy about this since I’m getting at that age that I need to start using these >__< Don't be fooled by the huge box, the sample is much smaller!

Goldwell Rich Repair shampoo and conditioner x2 (each pouch is 10 mL). It smells great and made my hair soft, I want to buy the full size!
