December Luxe Box

This month's Luxe Box arrived yesterday and while I was pretty excited to received it, I was not too excitedabout what was in it. Here's what I got:

1. Yves Rocher Rouge Dragee lipstick full size. Not sure of the name of the shade. It's a nice rose colour. Not something I would buy on my own but it's alright.
2. Yves Rocher sample size shower gel in Mandarin Orange. Packaging looks like something from a dollar store, but the smell is lovely!
3. Sample of Nina Ricci L'air frangrance.
4. Sample of Nina Ricci L'elixir frangrace. (this one smells better)
5. Full size NYX eye pencil in Black. This is the best product in my opinion because I needed a new black pencil eyeliner! So it was good timing.

Overall in terms of getting my money's worth I feel this month was not nearly as good as last month. I signed up for 3 months so I only have one more to go. If the next one is not that great I plan to cancel this subscription.

There are 2 other beauty subscription services I have been reading about lately: Top Box and Glymm box. From the reviews I have seen, these ones seem pretty good! I think I will sign up for these and see what one is the best.

I've been thinking about joining one of these, but there's so many choices!

I have been tempted to get these kind of services in the past but the one thing that has stopped me is the randomness. If I get products that are good value but that are not suited for my needs, then 10 bucks a month can quickly add up. I can just take this money and buy the items I truly need.

that being said, I think what you got last month was an awesome deal. Maybe next month's package be better?
