|Inside the box|
|The product card|
|Pantene Shampoo and Conditioner|
The card says: "Congratulations! You have been selected to try the new Aqua Lite Shampoo and Conditioner from Pantene's professional hair care line. The Aqua Light range has a lot of new innovative ways of achieving weightlessness, using things like water-soluble ingredients and light gel formulations." The full size shampoo and conditioner (375 ml) retail for $6 each; I received a 50 ml sample of each.
I have a feeling that all Luxe Boxers were selected to try this shampoo, but in any case, these are good travel sized samples. I used to use Pantene a lot, but then switched to Head and Shoulders, so I wouldn't mind trying it out again. It has that Pantene smell I remember (it is hard to describe, other than saying the Pantene smell ;)
|Biosilk Silk Therapy|
The card says that it is "a lightweight leave-in treatment that helps moisturise and restructure your hair without heaviness. The silk proteins strengthen your hair from the inside out, vitamin B holds in moisture, and vitamin E with botanical extracts nourishes for shine and softness. It also protects your hair from future sun damage and from the heat of your styling tools. The result is silky smooth, shiny hair. This product is a TotalBeauty.com award winner". The full size (360 ml) retails for $55; I received a 15 ml sample.
I'm actually very happy to see this in my box, as I have a flat-iron from Nu Me coming in the mail and the mini iron only has a high heat setting so people have been recommending to use a good serum to protect the hair before styling. I will try this out when the Nu Me iron gets here!
|Seche Ridge Filling Base Coat|
Next is Seche's Ridge Filling Base Coat.
The card reads: "Contains finely ground quartz crystals that work very effectively to not only fill ridges in the nail plate, but also help disguise nail imperfections. Seche Base has an incomparable bonding ability and is specially formulated to give nail polish the best anchor to hold on to". The full size (15 ml) is $7; I got a 3.8 ml sample in the box.
Another product I am happy to see. I saw other bloggers got this in past Luxe Boxes and wish I got it, so I'm pleased that it was in this month's box. I have ridges on my thumbnails so I want to see if this will work. I've also heard from other beauty bloggers that Seche is a great brand.
|The Panty by Post shipping envelope|
Last is the Panty by Post.
The card reads: "PantybyPost.com is an online subscription service to receive a pretty panty every month in the mail. They have three different lines (Signature, Bridal, Men's) and each panty comes wrapped in beautiful tissue in a box." A single panty is $30, and the price goes down per panty based on subscription length : $216 for 12 months; $114 for 6 months or $60 for 3 months.
And here's what came!
I got a lovely silk striped panty wrapped in this fun pink polka dot paper! I really love it and it feels so luxurious! I'm really glad that Luxe box partnered with Panty by Post, as I've heard of this company before but was very hesitant to get anything from them; this was a good trial and it's tempting me to pick up the 3 month subscription!
So overall, a pretty good month's box, as I will put all the products to use!
And...'cause I mentioned the shoe part in the title of this post (and had a request to showcase some of my shoe purchases)...here's a few that just came in the mail for me :)
