Topbox: January 2015

Now we’re into the part of the month where all of my subscription boxes come basically all at once! I would have to say I look forward to my Topbox’s arrival the most and this month was no different nor was I disappointed!

I mostly received skincare this month and I’m okay with that because I love trying new products in that area.

Eyeko Mascara Off Eye Makeup Remover Wipes (Retails for $12) – 100% pure cotton wipes remove eye makeup gently, quickly and efficiently. Infused with a botanical blend featuring key ingredients olive oil and aloe extract to condition and soothe the delicate eye area.

I’ve hadn’t had good success with the Eyeko mascaras but these wipes are pretty awesome. They are smaller than a baby wipe but they pack a punch (I think because of the olive oil). I do find them a bit expensive for how many you get in a pack – 10 for $12 but if you like to splurge on wipes these are quite good!

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Moisture Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 (Retails for $60) – The lightweight daily moisture cream hydrates and immediately brightens skin, as it helps smooth the look of pores and minimize the appearance of discolorations. Skin looks smooth and supple more even toned, revitalized and luminous

This is a moisturizer + sunscreen that quickly absorbs into the skin and leaves it looking glowing, not greasy. The skin isn’t sticky afterwards either. I haven’t tried this under makeup yet or with flash photography so I don’t know how it acts in those situations.

MeMeMe Cosmetics Cheek & Lip Tint (Retails for $10) – Ideal for adding a flush of long lasting colour to your cheeks and lips no matter what the occasion or skin tone

I’d have to say that this is the only product I’m slightly disappointed with. I haven’t tried it because I don’t want to open it so that I can give it away to someone. I have enough tints in my collection and I barely even use those.

Lise Watier Lift & Firm 3D Duo Serum 24 Hrs (Retails for $78) – An instant and visible cosmetic lifting! Facial contours are visibly sculpted, skin’s density and firmness is visibly improved and skin looks smoother and more supple

I love the idea of this product. Your skin definitely benefits from different compounds at different times of the day. The daytime serum works on lifting the skin while the nighttime serum focuses on firming. The daytime serum is much thinner, almost watery but the nighttime one has the consistency of a very thin cream. They both quickly absorb into the skin and plump up your skin. Very excited to see how my skin reacts to these, if it does at all.

I’m pretty happy with this month’s box. Next month I selected the Regular Topbox, no Privé box, as I really like the assortment with the regular boxes.

til next time…
