Luxe Box By Loose Button December 2011

By Sunday, December 18, 2011 , ,

I got my December Luxe Box this week. This will be my last box for a while. Why? I've gotten 8 of them since I started my subscription in May, and while I like getting them, every month is killing me with products. I have too much of an untouched stash building and must work on that before acquiring any more stuff.

What I got:

Yves Rocher 24H Vitality Anti-fatigue Skin Care - trial size 15 ml- 50ml retails for $52- it seems like a fair size, but really more anti-aging stuff. Sigh.
Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner - trial sizes 70 ml- 240 ml retails for $21 or $22- I like Moroccanoil, so I am interested in the conditioner, but no go for the shampoo, I just don't use it. It only makes sense they sent both though.  **EDIT** I was informed below in the comments that this in fact is not part of the box but also making up for the mess up last month...sigh.
Nina Ricci L'air Du Temps and Nina -trial size 1.2 ml- 50 ml retails for $72 (L'air) and $65 (Nina) - Big Big let down here. These are the smallest samples you could ever get. Not a deluxe sample at all.
NYX Slim Eye Pencil in 901 Black - Full sized - 1g retails for $4 - Full sized is always nice, but it is a $4 item I can get on sale for $2.50.
Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray -trial size 75 ml- 300 ml retails for $24- This is to replace the expired product they gave us last month. I am not even going to consider it part of this box.

Rating: C- **EDIT** D+
I am glad I am stopping getting their boxes. I am getting far too jaded.  Two tiny free perfume samples dose not equal a deluxe sample. I could go to a counter and get it for free. Boo. The note (I didn't get it but co-worker did) says I've been getting bonus items. While I did last month (and I loved last months box by the way), I don't feel the replacements for last months expired item counts as a bonus. I do like that they owned up to the expired issue, but don't pass it off as a bonus.
A $4 liner and a shampoo/conditioner with another anti-aging item and free crapy perfume samples hardly seemed worth it this time.
