LuxePineapple is an un-subscription box service that I purchase from on occasion. I don’t believe I have unboxed them on here on my blog, but I have posted IG and Facebook posts of my LuxePineapple boxes. You don’t subscribe to them ~ you pick out the “Box of Joy” that you like, so that it works best for your own taste. They only send out the Box of Joy details in their newsletter, so sign up on their sight if you are interested in them. They also do a BYOB ~ Build Your Own Box ~ 4 times a year, where you can customize your own Box of Joy at a huge discount.
How does LuxePineapple offer such great products at low prices? They work the same way as big retailers like TJ Maxx or Marshalls work ~ they purchase overstocks, discontinued, old packaging products from the manufacturers and they only purchase real, not fake, items. They vet their vendors carefully and I have been very pleased with their service.
Last week, they released the Beach Babe Box of Joy and I HAD to get it. I received it the other day and let’s see what I got!
Welcome to the Beach Babe Box of Joy! This special project was curated in conjunction with Julie, a Pineapple Lovely who has a zest for beauty, life and art! In her words here is the inspiration behind this theme.
Pineapple Lovely Tote How cute is this tote bag? It is the perfect size to put my lunch, snacks and drinks in. Sometimes, lunch tote bags are so small, that everything gets squashed. Bright hot pink and orange straps with snap closures. Really sweet and very summery! 11″H x 11.5 L” x 5.25″W Value $10.00
O&M (Original Mineral) Surf Bomb Sea Salt Texture Spray I really love sea salt sprays ~ not that I have curly or wavy hair, but the exact opposite ~ I have fine, straight hair that needs texture and volume. I found that sea salt sprays really help with that, giving my hair a volume and thickness. Yes, they can be a bit drying, but I have very oily hair, so that is fine by me! This one by Original Mineral is infused with Australian Sea Salt and it will not dry your hair out. I will blow dry my hair until almost dry, then I will spray thru my hair and continue to blow dry. This really does “thicken” my individual hair strands, so my hair looks more voluminous. It has a lovely soft fruity scent to it and does not contain phthalates, sulfates, parabens, propylene glycol, methylisothiazolinone (M.I.T) or triclosan. Full Size 5 oz Value $23.95
Description: Let’s get messed up. This texture spray is a shot of the sea when a dunk in the ocean isn’t possible. Surf Bomb delivers that effortless, sexy tousled look without drying out your hair or dumping sand in the shower.
Ingredients: Aqua (Purified Water), Alcohol Denat, Magnesium Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, PVP/VA Copolymer, Parfum, AMP-Isotearoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Phenoxyethanol, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, PPG-12 PEG-50, Lanolin, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Syzgium Luehmanii (Lillypilly) Extract, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Vera) Leaf Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Camellia Sinesis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract.
Mark by Avon Island Beauty Face Compact I love this compact ~ it contains a champagne highlighter, a coral blush and a bronze bronzer (haha). These colors are so beautiful and delicate, they are not overpowering, but add just enough of that soft “sun kissed” beach glow to my face. I can see myself reaching for this compact, over and over again! Full Size 12.64g/0.44 oz $9.00
- Champagne Highlighter
- Coral Blush
- Shimmery Bronzer

The next two items are from LuxePineapple’s own line of cosmetics
LuxePineapple Collection Eye Liner in Charcoal This is a nice soft charcoal eyeliner. I am pretty spoiled, however, with my Korean gel eyeliners ~ I will use this as grey eyeliners are hard to find, but I wish this had the same no-budge formula like the Korean eyeliners. This will be great for smudging and doing a smokey eye. Full Size Value $20.00
Ingredients: Ricinus Communis Oil, Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin, Petrolatum, 2-Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Carnauba Cera, Cera Alba, Lanolin, BHT, Propylparaben
LuxePineapple Collection Baked Shadow Trio in Honolulu I am SUCH a sucker for shimmery browns and this baked shadow trio is just for me! I love it ~ it has a bold antique gold, a lovely bronze-copper and a deep shimmery brown. For a deeper, more intense color, use a primer first; otherwise, this will be a soft wash of shimmery shades across your eyes. This is paraben free, and contains Vitamin E, Green Tea, Chamomile and Ginkgo Biloba, which are rich in Vitamin E and antioxidants. This shadow is made in the USA. Full Size Value $28.00
Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Triisosterin, Octyldodecanol, Dimethicone, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Disodium Edta, Tocopheryl Acetate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Silica, Tin Oxide
- Charcoal Eye Pencil

- Honolulu Shimmery Brown Baked Eyeshadow
And finally, two products from Moody Sisters ~ LuxePineapple really went above and beyond, because I asked for these two scents specifically and they honored it! It was supposed to be random ::heart::
Moody Sisters Moody Mint Julep Aromatherapy Oil Roller Ball in Moody Mint Julep WHEW what a mouthful! I really love this scent ~ it has a lovely warm mint scent, warm because it includes vanilla and rosemary. It also has some citrus tones to it as well. This is such a lovely summer scent. Mint is known to boost your energy, raise alertness, relieve stress and rejuvenating your mind and spirits. This roller ball is infused with nourishing sunflower, jojoba and coconut oils. The other scent choice is Perky Pink Grapefruit. Full Size 7 mL Value $10.00
Description: What’s better than taking your favorite Moody Sisters aromatherapy perfume scent everywhere you go? Nothing! Whether you need a natural aromatherapy mid-day pick me up or a soothing perfume scent to calm your frazzled nerves, you’re covered! Roll on a bottle of your favorite aromatherapy perfume scent made with pure essential oils and fruit extracts – no synthetic or chemical fragrances! Each scented roll on perfume bottle will give you a natural aromatherapy mood boost!
Ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Organic Fractionated Coconut Oil, Essential Oils and Extracts (Vanilla, Orange, Peppermint, Rosemary, and Tangerine Essential Oils and Almond Extract (alcohol, oil of bitter almond, water)), Benzoin Gum
Moody Sisters Skin Care Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub I am a bit disappointed in this product ~ not in the actual scrub, as it really does have a foaming lather and works beautiful on my body, but the scent. It doesn’t smell like coconut lime ~ at all. It smells like oil and sugar. I love that it is made with coconut, olive and sunflower oils and it has vitamin E as well as glycerin in it, to make for a really good sugar scrub that is also moisturizing. I guess I will add some essential oils of my own to make this more scented ~ I have some lemon and peppermint. I should have requested the other choice, the Moody Mint Julep, because I know that the roller ball smelled delish!! This is marketed for dry skin, but I guess that is if you use this scrub on your face, which I do not plan to do so. I am interested in purchasing the Mint Julep version now as that scrub is good for oily skin and I would like to use that on my face. Full Size 10 oz Value $14.95
Description: This ain’t yer average body sugar scrub and you’re not going to be able to DIY this in two steps. This luxurious natural foaming body sugar scrub is made with moisturizing skin loving oils, blended with an organic liquid foaming soap to cleanse and organic evaporated cane juice to exfoliate. Each organic sugar scrub leaves your skin rejuvenated and refreshed and is an all in one body and facial wash and exfoliation. The perfect all natural one two punch for normal to oily skin with no additional moisturizing needed. You can immediately improve your skin’s tone, texture, and feel with each Organic Body Sugar Scrub use and you’ll get plenty with this large 10 oz net wt. jar. Gently scrub and naturally exfoliate while creating a light foaming lather. Save time and money with this Organic All Natural Foaming Sugar Scrub scented with only pure essential oils and natural fruit extracts.
Ingredients: Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Liquid Soap (Filtered water, saponified olive oil, coconut oil, glycerin, and plant based cellulose), Sunflower Oil, Vitamin E, Essential Oils: Key Lime and Pink Grapefruit
I have to say, this is the BEST box that I have purchased from LuxePineapple ~ I paid $48.50 + $2.50 in shipping and I did use some of my rewards at LuxePineapple ~ they give your reward points for purchases made, which you can convert to “cash” at their site ~ so the grand total was $46.00. I received a value of $115.90! Despite my disappointment with the lack o’ scent in the scrub, I am REALLY happy with all of these products and have already started to use them. This Box of Joy is sold out, but all of these products can be purchased individually at LuxePineapple for a limited time, as supplies are in low quantity.
