August 2012 LUX BOX

LuxBox is a luxury beauty and grooming box for both men and women launched 3 months ago, I reviewed last month's box here which I have to say I have been really enjoying using the Tooth Cleanser and today I arrived home to LuxBox waiting for me! LuxBox search for the best products from classic, niche and upcoming brands to bring you the latest trends and finest products on the market. For £10 a month plus £2.95 postage and packaging you will receive 5 luxury beauty miniatures direct to your door to try for yourself at home and you have the freedom to cancel the subscription at any time. 


I adore the packaging and it has to be my favourite packaging of all the Beauty Boxes on the market. The box comes delivered inside a plain brown cardboard box which makes it discrete and less likely to catch the eye of your postman if he/she has sticky fingers! The box is a chic looking dusty pink/grey box which is a nice size and can be re-used as a sturdy storage box and inside black tissue and shredded paper with a pink sticker. So what's in this month's box?

Inika Certified Organic Eye Liner (*full size* worth £11.75)

I have tried a few Inika products now and have found them to be good quality and the eyeliners especially are impressive - very creamy and highly pigmented and organic and natural which is a bonus! I received the shade 'peacock blue' which is a vibrant bright blue so not an everyday colour but look forward to experimenting with this!

Gatineau Essential Skin Corrector (worth £20.70)
This is a scientifically advanced skincare line providing an anti-aging shield and combining an exclusive and innovative combination of anti-oxidants to provide a powerful defense barrier. The essential skin corrector is a corrective cream to smooth out the first signs of wrinkles and improve radiance and comfort. This is a brand I am not familiar with so look forward to trying out this cream, although not over keen on the scent.   

Magnifibres Brush on False Lashes (*full size* worth £20)
This looks very interesting and something I am very excited to try! These brush on false lashes instantly lengthen lashes by up to 5mm and work by applying one coat  of your normal (any brand) mascara, then applying the brush on fibres, then wait 30 seconds and apply a second coat of mascara.  I can't wait to give this a go!
 

BRTC Gold Caviar BB Cream (worth £5.36)
This is another brand I was unaware of from South Korea which contains SPF 50 and is made from real caviar extracts! I'm looking forward to trying this as I love BB Creams.


Yana Cosmetics Foundation (worth £1.50)

This is a brand I'm unfamiliar with and this is described as a lightweight, creamy foundation, full coverage, airbrush look suitable for all skin types. I was sent the lightest shade and it is a little too light for my skin tone - the consistency is very thick and its not easy to blend well as it dries so quickly! It dries to a powder finish so may look a little chalky it has a nice smooth finish though - I will see how I get on with this foundation as I think it's too drying for me personally.


I totted up the value of the products in this month's box and it comes to £59.31 which is brilliant considering the box costs just £10 plus £2.95 P&P. This month's box contained two full size items and I am most excited about trying the Brush on False Lashes and the BB Cream.  What do you think to LUX BOX?
