I haven't been a beauty box subbie for a while now so I was super excited to rip into this one, and it didn't not disappoint either. Luxe Box by Loose Button's spring box for 2015 is spot on. The box includes a curated selection of products to prep the skin, and some beauty products to try for achieving some of the spring makeup trends. I have tried the Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant before and loved it so I was happy to see this mini sample in the box. It helps clear up acne, and brightens the skin. Another great skincare product in the box is the Missha Geum Sul 24K Gold Collagen Caviar Cotton Sheet Mask which claims to "promote a healthy-glowing complexion" - how luxurious does that sound? Sheet masks are all the rage right now and there are so many out there in the market that it gets kind of overwhelming, so it's nice to have one already chosen for us to try. Missha is also a popular Japanese skincare and makeup brand but I haven't had the chance to try many of their products so that is another bonus.

For makeup, there is a shade sampler card for the Buxom Show Some Skin Weightless Foundation. I haven't tried this foundation before, but the name of it suggests that it could be perfect for the spring and summer. The shades included in the sampler are "Dim the LIGHT", "Meet me LATTE", "Sweet as HONEY", and "CARAMEL Kisses". Included in the box is also a Loose Button foundation-sponge duo brush, both of which are great types of applicators to achieve light to medium coverage from a foundation. Minimal spring makeup look calls for strong and tamed brows so for that, they've included a mini Eyeko Brow Gel. And the tint/shade is universal.

For nails, they have included a Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer - I didn't even know that Crabtree & Evelyn made nail polish, how neat! The shade, "Petal Pink", is a sheer and pretty pink shade which is a great transition colour from the dark/winter shades to the lighter and eventually bright nail polishes come summer. Last but not least, we have a mini Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk to help the hair look fresh at all times. Dry shampoos are an essential these days, so it's nice to try new ones. Plus, this mini one will be great for bringing along on road trips or other travels during the spring. Overall,  I think this box included a nice variety of products that is so fitting for the spring. I definitely will be looking forward to trying all these products!
