Topbox January 2015

Topbox is a Canadian beauty subscription that ships you 4 samples every month.  The shipping is free, which is nice, but there is tax based upon your province.  This still makes it one of the cheapest boxes out there at $12 per month.  Topbox normally comes is a cardboard container but you can chose to receive your products in a reusable organza bag for even less waste, which is my choice.  They also offer special boxes that you can put on your wish list and you may get them or you’ll get the regular box. Lately they seem to be shipping out earlier in the month then they used to which is nice, since a lot of my boxes come in the last half.

The front and back of my bag.  I could see something bubble wrapped and was really hoping it wasn’t another nail polish.

The info card.  The other side just lets you know that they have a special edition LouLou Winter Box for sale on their site.  This side tells you about the products, the full size price and where you can purchase them if you like it.

MeMeMe Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint in Cherub’s Blush-$10.00 Full Size

Cheek stains are not my favorite way to apply blush.  I seem to lack the ability to get it rubbed in before it starts to dry and then have weird streaks on my cheeks.  I keep practicing in the hopes I can figure it out but tend to use these more as the lip tints then anything else.  I do like the color though, it gives a natural looking flush that is compleately wearable if I can get it on right.  Also I am thrilled it’s not a nail polish……

Lise Watier Lift & Firm 3D Duo Serum 24 Hrs-2X3mL $11.70

I haven’t tried these yet but they are supposed to do many wonderful things.  Skin will appear firmer and smoother.  It will also be denser and more supple.  Wrinkles will also be reduced.  While I hope it works it’s a bit of a double edged sword as there is no way I would ever buy something that is this expensive.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide(TM) Moisture Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF30-7mL $8.40

Holy what a handle!  I think that is the longest product title I’ve ever had to type out.  Sunscreen is one of those things that I know I should wear everyday but if it’s not already in one of my products I never think to put it on.  My kidlets get coated anytime we go outside but for myself it’s an afterthought.  This has a thinner formula then your standard sunscreen and absorbs really quickly.  It smells nice and fresh too!  If I can remember to use it I think I will like this.

Eyeko Mascara Off Eye Makeup Remover Wipes-$12.00 Full Size

This is a 10 pack of wipes and I’m not sure why I have never tried something like this before.  I use a cotton pad and liquid makeup remover and it’s such a pain.  You squirt too much out, then it leaks into your eye off the pad, then it stings till you can get a cloth up to wipe it off…..this seems so much easier.  These are available at Sephora as well so that makes getting more easy too.

This months bag had a value of $42.10 and two full sized products.  I’m so glad that this month was better for me.  I still may end up cancelling this one if it goes back downhill in products for me but this one definitely made up for some of the letdowns.  I can’t wait to try the wipes and both of the skincare products.  The stain is the only so-so item but that is only because I’m incapable of using it properly.
