This month it arrived the last week of September with another explanation about delays thru Canada Post. I spend most of the month squinting past any blog posts on other people's LUXE boxes because I want to be surprised. Such first world whining I know... Anyway I have one more month of LUXE box and then I have to decide whether or not to renew, so there was a lot riding on this month.
Here is what I got;
Clapping hands...fancy schmancy looking products. Now this is more like it.
Okay so the impressive book like packaging gave me high hopes for this sample. The sample itself is actually a 0.2 fl.oz size sample in a cardboard container. I wish they would have spent a little less on the packaging holding the sample and a little more on the sample itself.
I've never tried Mereadesso products, which they say are proudly made in Canada, but I'm interested to try this face & neck toning gel. This says its has 16 botanical extracts, 7 minerals and over 20 different antioxidants. Should have, the full size product costs $120 for 50ml. I'll let you know my thoughts on this one.
Next up MoroccanOil..yay! For those who aren't familiar with this product, it's one of the best hair serums I've used. It's designed to help chemically processed or sun damaged hair, and restores your hair's silky texture. I already own this in a larger size but this will be a great travel size container. The bottle is 25ml, a really decent size and more than pays for this month's LUXE box. Thrilled!
Next up is a a product I hadn't heard of, Laura Mercier's Perfecting Water. Decent sized 10ml sample. The reading I've done on this say it's hydrating fluid that allows for deeper penetration of other skin products such as moisturizers or serums. You apply it with a cotton ball in small circular motions & it's supposed to keep your skin looking soft & supple. Supple...such a weird word. Apparently if you have oiler skin you only need this product, no other moisturizer. But if you have dry skin you let this absorb into your skin & then apply your other products. I'm really excited to give this a try, and am not afraid of falling in love with it as a full size container is $38 (200ml), so not too bad.
Sorry I haven't had much of a chance to try the skin products yet. Life has been a little hectic with some trips & family celebrations in October and I didn't want to have any break out issues with my skin.
Seche Vite, I must be the last girl to not have tried this top coat. This is a teeny tiny bottle, see the Hershey kiss for reference. I am looking forward to using this as people swear by it. I have heard however that it dries out in the bottle quickly, so maybe it's best I have such a wee bottle.
I'll be MIA this week, because my new job is taking me on a conference this week to.....Winnipeg. Jealous aren't you? My brother said it sounds like I'm on an episode of the office.
If any of our group sleeps with the concierge I'll let you know.
Have a great week everyone, let me know if you've tried any of these products and
what you think of them!
