This is literally the third time I’m getting this sample. Second time from Luxebox! I JUST got this sample in my last box and it really irritates me to get repeats ::-_-::. I got this in the winter box and the September box for Glossybox. They obviously didn’t even think to check what I’ve received from them before.

Lancôme | Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate

[[ Award-winning serum that helps create a more youthful-looking skin by promoting natural skin renewal that is characteristic of young skin. Visible skin in just 7 days. Drop by drop, skin is vibrant with youth, its tone becomes astonishingly even and its texture dramatically refined. ]]

Full Size: $19.00/10mL || Received: $19.00/10mL *FULL SIZED*

I have to say that this season’s Luxebox didn’t impress me as much as the last two boxes. I’m interested in trying the Lancome item, but that’s about it. The fact that they sent me an item that they literally just sent me in my last box was pretty disappointing. The booklet they gave with the spring trends had all these brands and items I would’ve been excited to try. Smashbox’s eye primer, Color Smash’s hair shadow (I’m guessing it’s their take on the new hair chalk trend?), L’Occitane, KMS’s Quick Blow Dry. Where are those things in my box?

Luxebox Winter 2012

For the winter Luxebox they placed all the items inside a drawstring bag inside the box instead of just placing it into the box and wrapping it up! Sorry I forgot to include the kabuki brush in the picture with all the items! If Luxebox keeps things up, I would be sooo happy. They’ve been impressing me with the Fall box and this Winter box ::^^::.

Glossybox September 2012

So this was the second last box that Glossybox offered at $15. Last week all the subscribers received an email saying they’re increasing the price to $21!! That’s a crazy increase from $15! Current subscribers get the October box at $15 and after that it will also increase to $21 for them.

It’s very irritating because of the fact that GB’s items seems to be going down in value as time goes by. The amount of drugstore brands will be a big part of this company’s boxes too from what I can see. Paying $21 a month for drugstore brands seems pretty crazy.

Glymm had an increase from $10 to $12 but current subscribers got to stay at $10. Luxebox went from $12 to $26 every 3 months. After my last $15 box I’m going to be cancelling my Glossybox, sadly =
