January Luxe Box by Loose Button Review

I was ecstatic when I received my Luxe Box yesterday. Even more so because it was much bigger than the usual boxes that I have been getting. When I opened the package, there were two boxes! It turns out that the second box was a limited edition complimentary Bath and Body Box. I have said in the past that Loose Button is always a hit or a miss. This month I would say that it was definitely a huge hit for me! Keep reading to see what I got this month!

January Topbox Review

I'm so glad that I am back in Toronto now because now I can receive my beloved packages. So this month, I'm only subscribe to two beauty subscription boxes just because I canceled my Glymm subscription. It was nothing against them, but the products that they have been featuring just aren't for me. But this February, I'll be expecting a couple and they include my Topbox, Loose Button Luxe Box, Julep Maven Sneak Peak box, and my Glossybox. I have already written blog entries about each of these services. So if you're interested, undecided and just want do some research before you make a purchase, I hope I give all the information that you seek.

Topbox: (Email Referral Only) - Sold out until June
Loose Button: Sign Me Up! - Bonus 3-month Flare Magazine subscription
Julep Maven: Invite Me! - PromoCode: COLOR2012 for $0.01 intro offer
Glossy Box: I Want One! - Sold out until March
Glymm Box: Subscribe Me! 
*Please note that the colored texts are my referral links! If you sign up through my referral link, I will receive a credit or points that will go towards a free subscription. Thank you in advance :)

Anyways onto my unboxing post...

Julep Maven

If you're a fellow nail polish addict, this blog post is for you.

I've been interested in trying out Julep Maven ever since someone tweeted or left a comment on my blog about it. They had a "1 cent" intro offer, but the code that I was given at the time didn't work. Yesterday, I saw some recent  "1 cent" promo codes so I decided to sign up for an account and fill out style quiz but then I found out at checkout that the promo code still didn't work. My best guess is that they have a unique promo code per each style profile.

Anyways, today (my birthday!) I received an email regarding their $5 intro offer! I was sold immediately just because I was reluctant to pay $19.99 plus tax in the first place. The promo code I was given is "JAN5" under the style profile "Classic with a Twist" but hopefully that will work for other style profiles as well.  Click here to sign up. If you are interested in knowing a little bit more about the the Julep Maven program, please read on.

New Box in Town: Welcome Glossybox!

1 comment :
Hi Everyone,

Happy belated new year! I apologize for my lack of blog posts lately. I am currently back in my hometown and my mother's nail polish collection is absolutely pitiful so that is why I haven't done any nail art. I will soon when I get back to Toronto I promise!

Anyways, it looks like Topbox, Loose Button, and Glymm have a new competitor and they are Europe based Glossybox! With all these subscription services, there has to be at least one feature that makes each of these services stand out among the other. To me, what makes Topbox unique is their great referral program and their focus to partner with high-end brands. For Loose Button, I believe it is their huge network of brand partners, so it is always a surprise to see what is in each month's box. As for Glymm, they have their online beauty boutique and loyalty points program.
