Moi-meme Luxe - The Weekend Box

Hello and welcome to another instalment of my wonderful Moi-meme Subscription Box! In todays post I’ll be talking about ‘The Weekend Box’ which is the latest of the Luxe Quarterly subscription. If you fancy watching a speedy unboxing, you can do so here. This box is all about reclaiming the weekends in 2022.


As Moi-meme have quite rightly stated in their booklet, the lines of home and work life can be easy to blur, especially with some people still working from home either full or part time. January is always a great time to reflect on what makes us happy, what is serving us well, and where to focus energy; and a healthy work life balance is a great start!


Chalk Wrist warmer Gloves RRP £19.95 and Chalk Hand cream RRP £10.95

The first item, or should I say ITEMS is focused on those who like to get outside on their weekends. Whilst I don’t really do new years resolutions, is it somewhat of a goal of mine to spend more time in the great outdoors this year. I did a great job over lockdown of getting out for daily walks and since returning to the office part time and some sense of normality I seem to have lost that habit now.


My wrist warmers came in a charcoal grey, which is exactly the colour I would have chosen for myself out of the options available. The other options available we Light Stone which looks to be a creamy colour, Light Pink or black. These same options were available for those who received hats instead of wrist warmers. The warmers themselves feel like they’ll be perfect for keeping the cold from sneaking up your sleaves when you are out and about and feel like a lovely material.


The hand cream is also lovely. A little thicker than what I would typically prefer, but it sinks into the skin really quickly and doesn’t leave any residue behind which is what I do prefer in a hand cream. I like to have these on hand at home, in my bag and at work so I’m always really pleased to receive more, especially as this one is massive!


Polaar Eternal Snow Youthful Promise Cream – 50ml – RRP £42.95

Another thing that I’m always happy to receive lots of is creams for my face, as I seem to be going through them quite rapidly at the moment. Infused with the flower of Nunatak which is sourced from the peaks of the Arctic, this cream has a snow like texture that melts on contact with the skin. I would say the consistency is thicker than a regular cream, but not quite to the same level of a balm, and it does indeed melt down and sink into the skin easily.


My skin has been a little problematic of late, which is 100% my own fault. With later nights at work, I’m finding myself falling asleep on the sofa, and then I don’t bother to take off my make up before I go to bed, so I totally accept that my poor skin is entirely my own doing. I’ve only tried this cream a few times, but my first impressions are really positive. It leaves my skin feeling very smooth and soft, moisturised and not stick or shiny at all.


Chickidee Reed Diffuser – RRP £14.95

We’ve actually had Chickidee feature in some boxes in the past, in particular a wonderful candle that I still love and have. This reed diffuser had five possible fragrances, which were:


Balance – Eucalyptus, Sandlewood and Chamomile with undertones of Bergamot to restore Balance

Clarity – Freshly laundered cotton to purify and stimulate

Happy – Almond and Dark Chocolate on a rich Vanilla base to brighten and bring joy

Relax – Cucumber and Eucalyptus to calm and refresh

Sleep – Green Mandarin, Geranium, Coriander, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang to promote restful sleep


I personally received the ‘Relax’ scent, which has been placed in our living room next to my desk. The scent is light and fresh, and you can even smell it from the hallway as you walk into the house, which is a bonus. I’m very fond of the scent, and as is Mike so I’ll certainly be getting a few most of these!


Chickidee A6 Notebook – RRP £7.95

Next up in the box was one of four possible A6 notebooks. Each notebook is made of vegan leather, with a date space on each page within. Moi-meme have suggested using the notebooks to keep track of good habits that we are trying to maintain, which I think it a great idea. I’m slightly undecided quite what I want to use mine for. It would be handy for work, but at the same time I think I want to keep it for ‘me’ which would also match more nicely to the theme of the box!


The colours available were Tan, White or Grey, with the fourth option being a Tan bullet journal. The option I received was the grey, which again would have been my first choice if I’d had them all laid out in front of me.


Moi-meme – Set of Three Silk Hair Ties – RRP £19.95

Did you know that regular elastic hair ties can actually be quite bad for your hair and cause breakage? Whilst it’s something that I’ve always been aware of, it’s also something hat I’ve never really done anything about, which makes me quite pleased to have received these.


Made from the highest quality silk, these ties glide effortlessly over the hair with no pulling of tugging. Given how damaged my hair is by bleach, this can only be a good thing for me. The ties come as two smaller ties, and then a large scrunchie. The two different colour options were either a set of pink tones, or a mix of navy, cream and teal, the latter of which is the set I received.


 And there we have the contents of the Weekend Box! For me this was a great box, and well worth every penny. The total value for the contents of this box came to £116.70, so considering the quarterly box is £54.95 that’s fantastic value. I’ve already begun using each and every item from this box and can’t wait to see what Moi-meme come up with next.
