For February Topbox did something a little different. If you recall, my January Topbox (along with everyone else) was a Prive box. Well, this month they did a wishlist where you can choose a box containing Miracle 10 Skincare (cleanser, AHA cream, night cream, voucher for facial peel worth $125. Total value WITHOUT peel $45.60), Benefit (porefessional, benetint, dandelion blush, dandelion gloss, facial cream, foil sample of fine one one. Total value $49.79), Lippy Girl (lip gloss, lip shimmer. Total value $25). If you didn't receive one of these you would instead receive a regular (non Prive) Topbox. We got to see in advance what would be in each box, except the regular Topbox.
The only box I had selected for my wish list was Lippy Girl. I didn't want the Benefit as I have the full sizes of the products. I didn't want the Miracle 10 since I have WAY too much skincare to go through. I really like Lippy Girl and even though the value was lower, I thought I would enjoy it the most. Alas, even though I selected that box and I know it wasn't a popular choice, I still received a regular Topbox. I was a bit disappointed at first..but at the end of it all, I'm really happy with my box, it was a good value with good product!
B.Kamins - Nutrient Replacement Cream Kx. Full size: 45g - $152. Sample size: 15g - $50.67
Wow, what a value! I knew that B.Kamins products were expensive and I knew that this was a generous sample, but I definitely didn't think the value would be that high. I really like the brand, so I am looking forward to trying it. I have a lot of other things that I have ahead of it to use before they expire so it may be a bit until I get to it. Unless it's a miracle though, I probably wouldn't buy cream this expensive when there are really good inexpensive options out there. I am really excited about the product though!
KMS California - Freeshape quick blow dry. Full size: 200ml - $18.75. Sample size: 30ml - $2.81.
These are the types of products I really like! I would love to try this immediately...however I just started using CoolWay, so I don't really want to be adding this to my routine at the moment as I'm really trying to get a feel for that system. This is an item I could fall in love with though! :) If you have tried it, let me know how it worked for you! We could all use to save time for blow drying!
Make Up Forever - Pro Finish powder foundation in 118 Neutral Beige. Full size: 10g - $42. Sample size: 2g - $8.40.
I've seen this reviewed on a couple blogs and they've been good reviews! I've been actually dying to try this particular product and I'm super excited that it came in my Topbox! I think the colour may be a little dark for me. I'm sure they sent out the most popular seller. However, I do know this colour will work for me in the summer months. That said, I'm going to go ahead and try it some weekend and I may be surprised by it the way I surprised with my beige Hello Flawless powder foundation! I've also never tried anything by MUFE so this is really exciting for me!
A look at the inside. You can see that it looks a little on the dark side. So cute that the powder came with a little mini sponge. I would say the pan is about the size of an average single shadow. It has a really nice satiny texture.
Deborah Lippmann nail polish in Ray of Light. Full size: 15ml - $20.
Okay, so it's super exciting receiving a DL in a beauty box!! I am super happy with this product, however I was hoping for the red that some other girls received. Don't get me wrong...I *love* this colour, however I did purchase this particular from the Topbox boutique when they had a deal with the mascara. I emailed them to see if I can exchange it and they will send me the other shade in my March box, so I'm really excited and just thrilled with the Topbox customer service!
It is a beautiful deep indigo colour with red/gold/green holographic flakes.
There you have it! That's the whole box. Definitely a step in the right direction after some of the mediocre past boxes. I don't know yet how long I'll stay with Topbox as I'm really focusing on whittling it down to 3 but as of this year it's been a harder one to let go of! The total value of the February box is $81.88! Wow!
Which box did you get? Were you happy with it?
I hope you all had a great weekend (long weekend?)! I've started Clean Eating again this morning so I may throw in some Health day blog posts! :) Hey, our health is part of beauty right?
