I had the nice surprise of opening my mailbox on Friday to find my February Luxe Box. I almost pulled a rookie mistake when I went to grab everything out of the box and try all the products on, but I contained myself enough to photograph the box first. I am really impressed with the service this month for many reasons. Previously I was subscribed to both Glymm Box and Luxe Box, which I mentioned in my January 2012 Favourites blog. When Glossy Box came to Canada I really wanted to try it out, however, I can only justify being subscribed to two boxes at one time (and even that is pushing it, I really should just choose one and stick with it but I'm not ready commit yet). At the risk of repeating myself, Luxe Box is a beauty subscription service where once a month they deliver deluxe samples to your door for you to try. This is a really great idea if your on a budget and want to spend your money wisely. It gives you a chance to try out that higher-end product before you go and invest your hard earned money in it!

I mentioned I was really impressed with Luxe Box this month, and I am for two reasons; (1) My box was in my mailbox the day after I got my shipment email. What amazing turnaround! I know they recently upgraded their shipping option which I am definitely loving! and, (2) The products in the box were impressive! I have to say, I have received ten total subscription boxes from different services and it is my favourite box by far!
Now I may be totally swayed by the Benefit product truth be told. Benefit is definitely a product line I drool over at Shoppers Drugmart and Sephora but can never convince myself to splurge on. Regardless, on to what I found inside my Luxe Box!
February Luxe Box
The Luxe Box packaging has always been the same since I started receiving it back in November 2011, but this month they teamed up with the magazine Flare and changed their usual black box to a bright red. A really nice pop of colour in the dead of winter!

CK One - Shock for Her PerfumeThis is really a significant sample compared to the little vials that are usually in the boxes. This sample happens to be a roller ball applicator (as seen in the second picture) which I don't mind actually. I don't own any perfumes with that type of applicator so it will be a nice change. I haven't smelled this particular perfume before receiving it, and honestly it is not what I usually go for, but I really love this smell. I wore it today and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the smell and how long it lasted. I would put the smell description it came with but it is literally a mile long, so I'll summarise it by saying it definitely has a floral scent with a sweet musky undertone. This will be great to throw in my purse while I'm on the go.
