Luxbox Review | September 2012

The packaging and the price

Luxbox is £12.95 including p&p which is about the same as all the other beauty boxes. The box itself is a dusty lilac kinda colour. The thing that really annoys me is the black shredding inside. They make all the products in the box have a black dust look on them and its really hard to get off. However I do like the fact the paper stops things getting broken in the post.

Murad oil free suncream SPF 30 - 10ml
£5.40/10ml or £27/50ml
This is one of the 2 products that I am excited to see in the box. If you have read my blog for a while you will know I burn so easily in the sun so this is nice to have in my collection. I haven't tried it out yet (because we have no sun) although I will let you know what I think when I have tried it.

Immerse me face mask b.liv by cellnique - 1 mask
£1.35/ 1 mask or £9.50/ 7 masks
This is the other product I am excited about trying. I don't have overly dry skin but I think this will really help with hydrating my skin and repairing the dryness inside. If you would like to see a review of this once I have tried it let me know.

Skinkind unique skin kind moisturiser - 10ml
£4.99/10ml or £24.95/50ml
I don't really like the look of this. I mean there isn't anything wrong with it but I probably won't be using it. Its just a facial moisturiser and it doesn't look like anything special.

Betty Hula moisturiser in champagne and spice.
Sample size unknown 
This is a massive fail in my opinion. I have tried these samples before and although they smell nice they are completely useless unless you only want to moisturise half of one leg. I personally like to use the same moisturiser all over so don't like tiny samples like these.

Black and white genuine pluko - Full size
I'm a bit confused about what this actually is. Its meant to sculpt and style hair. To be honest it sounds like a hair gel that a man would use. I certainly won't be using this, and I don't think anyone I know will want it either so I don't quite know what I will be doing with it.

Overall I am extremely dissapointed with this box. I know you get your money's worth and everything but they products aren't things I can imagine many females being very happy with. There was also no product card this month which is a little bit annoying but its not the end of the world. The box also smells horrible I think its either the hair pluko so I will need to air the box before I use it for storage. I have heard that next month there will be 3 full sized products from the same company so I'm hoping its a decent brand. In case you didn't know the September box got cancelled so they could concentrate on making the service better etc.

Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes?
