The February 2012 Luxe Box comes in a limited-edition red box (instead of the regular black one).
They’ve partnered up with FLARE magazine, which is interesting. I’m curious to see what other partnerships they’ll develop this year.
I think that Loose Button should keep switching up the colour and/or pattern on their Luxe Boxes. It keeps it looking fresh and less predictable.

Loose Button February 2012 Luxe Box Review
I like the red box because it’s bold, it gets your attention, and it looks livelier than their regular black boxes. Don’t get me wrong – I like how sleek the black box is, but seeing a vibrant colour is a great pick-me-up.
Since they partnered with FLARE magazine, I thought it was cute how the tissue paper said FLARE on it.
pureDKNY Eau de Parfum
I was really pleased to see a mini bottle of this perfume instead of just a tiny little vial that you can get for free at a counter. Seems like Loose Button’s listening to the complaints that people had in the past and are taking a step in the right direction.
I haven’t worn this fragrance yet, but just smelling it from the bottle, I can tell you that this is a more mature scent than I’m used to wearing.
It doesn’t smell like an old lady, but my typical taste in perfume tends to be sweet, vanilla-based, and edible-smelling – very youthful.
Hehe, so this is very different. I’m looking forward to trying it out, but I think I’ll use it for more formal occasions. It smells clean and sexy – I don’t own anything like it.
Also, the bottle doesn’t have a spray. It just has a plug under the cap.
I’ve used scrubs before, but never an exfoliant powder. This should be interesting to experiment with.
The container reminds me of baby-powder packaging.
Redken Color Extend
My hair is natural – I don’t dye my hair, so perhaps I’m not the best person to test out this product. I’ll still use it, though.
I like how they included 3 packages each of the shampoo and conditioner, however, I would’ve preferred to get actual bottles instead of packages. The little packages can sometimes be tricky to open in the shower when your hands are wet.
Cargo Lash Activator
I’ve never tried anything from Cargo, so I’m curious about this. However, I don’t wear mascara…so I’ll probably just give this one away.
Final Verdict: 7.5/10
Although I wasn’t blown away by the February 2012 Luxe Box, I did appreciate how they included a mini bottle of perfume and a powder exfoliant that I’m curious to try.
