When I received my Loose Button January 2012 Luxe Box on Friday, my jaw dropped. (Don’t worry – I picked it up so that nobody would accidentally trip over it and hurt themselves.)
This month, the cardboard box that shipped was way bigger than any of the ones I previous received. It was roughly double the height!
So, of course curiosity got the best of this cat! I tore this baby open and took photos of everything along the way to show you.
Even though there wasn’t any nail polish in the January Luxe Box, I think that this is easily Loose Button’s best box ever…(well, compared to the ones I’ve received in the past).
Without further ado, let me take you on a long unboxing journey. 😉

Loose Button January 2012 Luxe Box Review
Two Luxe Boxes This Month
I applaud Loose Button for giving such a generous surprise this month. It’s always nice to get more than you bargained for. And instead of just getting an extra product, we got an entire box full of more stuff!
Shipping that white box along with the usual black box must’ve cost the company a pretty penny. As customers, we didn’t have to pay more, though.
Benefit Powda Wowza
Loose Button sent an e-mail prior to sending out the boxes and gave subscribers a choice between a few products if they replied in time. I chose the Benefit Powda Wowza because it’s a limited-edition, full-size product. Getting this item alone already paid for the entire January 2012 Luxe Box!
Schick Hydro Silk Razor
I like how they included this in the white box. Almost every woman shaves, so this is a practical item that’ll get some use.
I smiled when I saw the sample of Prada Candy included in the cute black mesh bag because I literally just saw Gregory Gorgeous’ YouTube video where he briefly talked about it.
It’s cool how Loose Button included a bunch of vials to count as one sample instead of just counting a single vial as one sample.
How much you like a perfume is really subjective, so it’s great that you can try out many at once. However, I didn’t care for the Nina Ricci perfumes last month…and now I have back-ups of them. I’ll try to give them away to someone who likes them. (But, if you liked those scents, you’d be pretty happy to get more!)
I appreciated how they added a bonus product that wasn’t beauty-related. But…I wish I had a coffee maker so I could try this!
I really liked how there were more coupons this month because, especially if you like certain products, the coupons add extra value to the Luxe Box.
While I loved this month’s box, I have to say that there’s soooooooo much packaging. There were two boxes shipped in another box. I wish that Loose Button would try to go the environmentally-friendly route. It would also save them some overhead expenses…
Final Verdict: 10/10
Loose Button outdid themselves this month! I’m very pleased with this box, and I think that they’re improving and become more savvy with the partnerships they’re making. (Benefit Cosmetics and Biosilk especially are sure to be huge hits among subscribers.)
