My 4 Seasons of LUX: Sparking Some Serious Joy

Posted by Jacquelyn Beasse on

I'm already at the half way point of my 4 Seasons of LUX subscription. And, I can honestly say that this fun project has (in the words of decluttering expert Marie Kondo) sparked serious joy in my life.

The boxes are delivered right to my doorstep every three months. That feeling of excitement, wondering what is in the latest box, makes me feel like I'm celebrating Christmas throughout the year.

And, since it’s almost time for the holidays, I thought I’d focus this post on joy: how the 4 Seasons of LUX subscription has brought me joy and why you might want to consider ordering it for yourself or a loved one.

Because who doesn’t enjoy sharing the love and spreading joy…all year long?

As I open my latest box, I see three full-size products and a handful of lovely samples waiting for me to try. Here is a rundown of what products I received, and why they sparked joy!

Product One: INDIE LEE Calendula Eye Balm

INDIE LEE Calendula Eye Balm

Why it brought me joy…

Reason #1: I was so curious to try this product when I opened it. My backyard is full of calendula flowers, and I’ve read this plant can be used to make medicine. I mentioned in my first post that I’ve been trying to move towards natural skin and beauty products. And the INDIE LEE balm is a 100% all-natural product. Edible plants + beauty products = natural joy.

Reason #2: An amazing feature of the INDIE LEE balm is that it leaves a slight shine under the eyes, which reflects light. It also adds dimension to otherwise tired-looking eyes. Good-bye, puffiness = hello, joy.

Reason #3: As I was reading the fine print on the packaging, I learned that the eye balm can also be used as a lip balm. Multi-use product = multi-joyful client.

Product Two: 100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Body Cream

100% Pure Vanilla Bean Nourishing Body Cream

Why it brought me joy…

Reason #1: This product is also 100% natural. No artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals, toxic preservatives, or unsafe ingredients. In fact, reading the label sounds just like a Whole Foods shopping list. Wild cherry, blackberry, oregano, thyme, white tea, hazelnut, mangosteen + elderberry = healthy joy.

Reason #2: The body cream smells like freshly baked donuts. True story: My family and I were on a road trip last month on Vancouver Island and stopped at a café famous for its donuts. We bought a box, and put them in the car to save for later. After a few minutes, my husband said, “Mmmm, those donuts smell SO good….” And I realized he was talking about the vanilla body cream I was wearing, not the donuts. Body cream that smells like homemade baking?! Delicious joy all day long.

Product Three: Bumble and Bumble (B&B) Thickening Full Form Mousse

Why it brought me joy…

Reason #1: I’ve enjoyed using B&B products for several years but had never used the mousse. I was thrilled to see it in my 4 Seasons of LUX box. I have fine hair, and I find that B&B gives my hair an extra boost of volume that is otherwise not there. Thicker hair = joy.

Reason #2: A few days before I received the mousse in the mail, I had been using the B&B Thickening Spray. However, during a recent work trip I had packed the bottle (which was more than 100 mL) in my carry-on suitcase. Yep. Bye bye, spray. But when I received my 4 Seasons box a few days later, I saw the new mousse sitting and waiting for me. As I’ve said before, LUX has an uncanny way of reading my mind and knowing exactly what I need and when. Customs officer confiscating my beauty product = zero joy. LUX reading my mind = mega joy.

Reflecting on Joy

When things get busy in life, such as during the holidays, self-care can sometimes take a backseat. But, when the 4 Seasons of LUX arrives promptly at my doorstep every three months, it is the perfect reminder to slow down, take care of myself, and treat myself to something nice every now and then. 

My third LUX box has already arrived and is sitting beside me unopened. With Christmas around the corner, if you’re looking for a gift idea for yourself, a friend, or a loved one in your life who deserves a little pampering, then the 4 Seasons of LUX subscription has got you covered. Your Christmas shopping will be done in minutes, and your gifts will arrive throughout the year. Subscribe before January 13th to receive your first Winter Box! 

Because who doesn’t love the feeling of Christmas all year round?!
