March 2012 Topbox!

Hi Beauties!

So, I’m a little late to the party with the Topbox post mostly because my Topbox was again MIA with CP, but I know it always shows up eventually so I wasn’t too worried. So, here we go! I couldn’t wait to get my Topbox after seeing what everyone else received! I was not disappointed when I saw the contents and I think this has to be one of my favourite Topboxes!

This month I received:
Redken - Color Extend Shampoo (full size $15/300mL) and Conditioner (full size $17/250mL)
Make up Forever - Sens’Eyes Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser (full size $28/100mL)
mark - Nailed It Trend Mini Nail Lacquers in “Violet Daze” and “Tickled Pink” (full size $8/2.7mL)
mark – Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in “Bella Bella” (Personalized) (full size $12/1.5g)
*BONUS* Simple – Cleansing Facial Wipes (full size $10.99/25 wipes)

I still haven’t used my Redken samples from my last Luxe Box, so I guess I’ll just add these to the mix. This was probably my least favourite item in my Topbox, mainly because of the packaging although now that I have four of these packs I could just squeeze them all out into those travel-friendly shampoo and conditioner bottles!

I am so glad that I got the eye makeup remover instead of another mascara! I am now swimming in mascaras so a cleanser is more than welcome! And by a well-known brand at that!

I haven’t tried any Avon or mark products, but my favourite item has to be these mini nail lacquers! God knows that I don’t need more nail polish (165 and counting!) but these are so itty bitty and cute and are in two great wearable colours! I haven’t tried the colours yet, but the swatches from other bloggers look great! I’m quite excited to try the lip stain as I’m curious to see how the gloss will wear itself into a stain over the day.

As a bonus, we all received 7 cleansing facial wipes which some people mentioned wasn’t a “luxury” item, but come on…it’s a “bonus” for a reason! Everything else in the box was great! This was something that the folks at Topbox loved and wanted to share with us! I really need to stop reading the comments on the Facebook walls of any of these luxury boxes because when I see grown women complaining about stuff like this or by saying such rude things it just kills me! People are so mean! Anyway, I have just discovered how much I adore cleansing wipes and how convenient they are to remove all of my makeup after a long day at work so I will definitely be using these!

Redken Color Extend Shampoo – 20mL = $1.00
Redken Color Extend Conditioner – 20mL = $1.36
MUFE Sens’eyes – 25mL = $7.00
Mini Nail Lacquers – FULL SIZE = $8.00
Lip Stain – FULL SIZE = $12.00
Cleansing Wipes – 7 wipes = $3.08
Total Value of Topbox = $32.44

Loved this month, can’t wait for the next!

  3. That's a good idea about just putting the shampoo samples into travel bottles; at least it would be easier to handle.

    Ditto on the fb comments. Sometimes my jaw drops at the things people say - it's ok to complain if you don't like something but there is a nice way to do it!

    1. I totally agree! You can complain in a diplomatic way and not sound like a little child throwing a tantrum.
