Nina Garcia #NGQ05 "Luxe Haircare" Box Spoilers!

If you are anxiously awaiting your Nina Garcia "Luxe Haircare" #NGQ05 box and you desperately need to know what's inside, I'm here for you!  Spoilers ahead!

This box costs $100 and had one spoiler released a month or two ago. When I heard the theme was "Luxe Haircare" I was a little bummed because if you follow my blog at all, you know I am not fond of getting hair product in my boxes. However, this is Nina Garcia and she's kind of magic so I was hoping for some marvelous tools.

Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray-1.8oz- Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray is a dual-benefit aerosol spray that volumizes and strengthens hair. The dry, clear formula features ultra-light polymers and protein for weightless, undone volume with touchable texture. Your hair is left looking healthy, voluminous and perfectly imperfect. It’s ideal for anyone seeking volume, especially women with fine or thinning hair or for those seeking a quick pick-me-up.

So what do you think? The box contains over $200 worth of hair stuff. There are a few that I will definitely be keeping despite my hair product hate. One of those being the Redken Length Sealer and the Living Proof Overnight Protector. Mainly because I'm really curious and the reviews are pretty good. I'll also keep the L'Oreal Straight Balm and the hair brush. Oh and the Serge Normant Hair Spray. Everything else will be up for grabby hands and/or gifts because I know exactly who in my family is going to want this stuff.

If you want to get the next Nina Garcia Box or see all the stuff Quarterly has to offer, you can check them out here. I'm warning you, though, never count on the box you choose to ship when it's supposed to.

  1. Whew! I feel like I dodged a bullet by not subscribing to her box this time around. XD The Fekkai product smells amazing though - as I'm sure you know, since it was in a previous Sample Society box!

    1. Yep, it does smell amazing although I wasn't too impressed with it's performance. And yah, you know this box gives me my dose of haircare for the next two years so I'm gonna really hate anything else that shows up in my boxes. :D

  2. The value is definitely there I just wasn't expecting the lack of variation.
