Winter Luxebox 2016/2017 #beauty #makeup #skincare

I’m excited because yesterday I was able to pick up my Winter Luxebox from the post office. Luxebox is a quarterly beauty box, so it comes four times a year. I used to be able to choose specific boxes with themes and specific items but lately I haven’t been able or Luxebox isn’t doing this anymore? Nonetheless, I was extremely pleased with the Winter Box for this season. 


Revlon Style Masters Hairspray Modular 2 – Medium hold hairspray – (75 ml) – Not bad. I like it because it’s medium hold spray so my hair isn’t crunchy. But I do have to say, I’m not a huge fan of Revlon for hair products. But that’s my opinion. I’ll see how it goes while I use this hairspray up.



Elizabeth Arden: The Original 8 Hour Cream Skin Protectant (5ml) – this is truly an all in one cream, it moisturizers and can shape brows, revitalize shine, soothe dry hands/cuticles/nails and even work as a face cream.



Laritzy Cosmetics Pro Blende Sponge – Multiple Tips for an Airbrushed Finish – Today was the first day I ever used one of these shaped sponges. I quite liked it for a lighter finish of foundation, although, I’ve been using a foundation brush and I don’t think I’d change. This Pro Blender can be used on the rounded end for larger areas of application and can also be used for contouring and blush. The smaller end even works for makeup blending in the eye and lip area.



Cake Heavy Cream w/ 20 times the Shea Butter – Intensive Hand Repair Balm – includes also sunflower seed oil,coconut oil, grape seed oil, pomegranate extract, white pine bark extract, coneflower extract, and licorice root. Happy with this because I needed to moisturizer my hands badly!



MaxLash Volumizer Mascara (13.5 ml) – Defines lashes with extra large multi-benefit brush – Fewer fibres help create volume and length giving striking XXL lashes



Ella + Mila: Nail Polish (0.5 FL OZ) in Pistache – Cruelty Free and Vegan Free – no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DiButyl Phthalate (DPB), Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor.



Manna Kadar – Beauty Simplified – Liplocked Priming Lip Wand – in colour J’Adore – (2.5 g). This I did try, the colour is not my shade at all but it’s a great product. The lipstick goes on your lips well and is moisturizing. It also stays on your lips for quite a while so there is little need to re-apply often.

    1. Hey Mia. It depends on the box, but generally I do use them. You fill out a beauty questionnaire so hopefully the items you receive are suited to you.
      I liked it better with themed boxes, then I always knew what I was getting and did for the most part use the products. With the last couple boxes I haven’t known but have actually been quite impressed.

      Things I don’t use I often can give to my Mom or a friend to use. They are also good little extras for gifts or parts of gifts as many of them are full sized products, if they suit a particular friend, Aunt, etc.

      Friday is nice. Just relaxing. How about you?

      1. Hi Amanda, that’s a great idea to give as gifts. I love to wander through the cosmetic and perfume areas of the big department stores, everything is so gorgeous, the displays are almost magical. I imagine receiving a Luxebox is along those lines, just on a much smaller scale, plus it’s always fun to get something in the mail.

        Friday was a nice day, I never accomplish what I have planned, that’s okay, there’s always a tomorrow. I feel a little like Scarlett O’Hara. 🙂 Today will be a quiet day, I’m going to attempt to work on some writing for Monday, we’ll see how that goes, *laughing*! 🙂

        I hope you’re enjoy your weekend so far, take good care Amanda. ~ Mia 🙂 ❤

      2. Kind if yeah. It’s definitely a great surprise. It runs about $28.00 CAN a box and ends up being worth it. I will often look up the price of an item or two and I usually find it takes about two items, to make the box worth it. In this case did say the nail polish is probably worth it and the mascara. Probably the lip pencil as well.

        What kind of job do you do Mia? I don’t think I’ve ever asked. Are you writing for work or for blogging/submitting?its cold here now as I said. People are the worst winters when they are not used to the cold. But as winter sets in, we get used to it!

        I’m excited to do a Paint Nite event tomorrow with some friends. I do t know if you’ve done something similar. I think you’d enjoy it. I went to one where we did a painting, but this one is kind of fun because we are painting wine glasses as penguins. Can always use more wine glasses.

        Thinking of you and have a pleasant weekend as well 😊

      3. Oh gosh, that’s totally worth it.

        Getting paid to write, that would be a dream come true for sure. Being a creative I get paid as much as I do writing. Zero. 🙂 Maybe it’s just what drives the soul.

        I’m bad about submitting, I read the guidelines and feel overwhelmed. I shrug my shoulders and say, maybe another time.

        Haha, I think it’s cold here, the kitchen says 70, and I’m all bundled up. 🙂

        Paint Nite sounds fun, can you ever have enough penguins or wine glasses? I hope you have a great time!

        Likewise, I think of you often, and thank you for the kind wishes. 🙂
