June 2012 Topbox!

Hi!

This Topbox was a little strange for me because I’ve been so busy with work that I didn’t actually know what was in it until 2 days AFTER it arrived because I didn’t open it! It just goes to show how busy and stressful things were! As usual, Topbox did not disappoint! Their consistency of great products is very impressive. As a bonus this month, we even got to try out some new drugstore products!

In June’s Topbox I received:

Bread&Butter Face Cleanser

DSCF4025

Excitement Level: Well, I knew I was getting this so it wasn’t really a surprise, but I’ve seen Bread&Butter products before and was curious so I’m very grateful to have a 90 day supply! Oh wait, this was supposed to be for my fiance…I guess he’ll have to share with me!

Full Size: 90mL/$11.67 (I don’t really know so I just took their 3 piece kit and divided by 3 because there aren’t any individual prices)

I Received: *FULL SIZE*

Pari Beauty Precious Glow

DSCF4032

Excitement Level: Ooooh, when I was seeing what everyone was getting, this was the one that interested me the most! It’s a liquid shimmer lotion that can be used on the face, eyes or body, but works best as an eye primer or highlighter when mixed with lotion of foundation.

Full Size: 10mL/$15.00

I Received: I’m not sure because the picture of this product on the info card is in a much bigger container and says 10mL on it so I’m pretty sure we have a sample size ranging from 3 – 5mL ($7.50 at most)

Stila Forever Your Curl Mascara

DSCF4029

Excitement Level: I really don’t know how good this will be…I haven’t seen too many raving reviews about it, but I’ll give it a try. There is supposed to have an “encapsulated raw ingredient” that enhances lash-curl memory. I’m kind of confused about what that means. To me, that either means that whatever ingredient they are using are found protected in a capsule OR in computer science it means “hidden”. I feel like it means the latter because we’re not being told outright what it is…

Full Size: 0.24oz/$29.00

I Received: 0.12oz/$14.50

Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil

DSCF4028

Excitement Level: Now this is one product that I hadn’t seen other people receive, although I haven’t watched any YouTube unboxings yet. I’m pretty excited to try this because I actually go to the salon twice a year to get the Redken All Soft Treatment so this will be great to try out! This is an Omega-6 enriched, fair trade argan oil that supposed to make dry, brittle hair incredibly soft. At the salon it totally works so I hope this stuff does too!

Full Size: 90mL/$34.99

I Received: 9.4mL/$3.65

Simple Eye Makeup Remover *Bonus*

DSCF4036

Excitement Level: I’ve already received this in May’s Glossybox, but I use eye makeup everyday so having another one is more than welcome! It’s a great travel size and a great bonus to an already great Topbox!

Full Size: 125mL/$9.99

I Received: 56mL/$4.48

Garnier BB Cream *Bonus*

DSCF4035

Excitement Level: Ah, so now I get to try Garnier’s BB Cream! I wonder if it will live up to my Marcelle BB Cream? I just hope the “light” shade I received is not too light for me…

Full Size: 75mL/$14.99 (London Drugs)

I Received: 4.5mL/$0.90

Total Value of Topbox: $42.70

I thought it was really cool of Topbox to provide the Bread&Butter product for the men as it gave my addiction to beauty boxes a little bit of validation! Great range of products once again and no shampoo samples! Yayyyy! I like shampoo samples, but it was getting to be a bit much so it’s nice to have a break this month. Overall, another great Topbox!

  2. How do you like you simple make up remover? I have their face cloths, so I was curious as to how their other products are.

    Looks like a great box!

  4. There are so many of these beauty box programs now that I'm having trouble keeping track of which is which! Looks like you got a good assortment of items this month. The Pari gloss looks like it's a really cute color :)

    P.S. I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog, would love for you to check it out!

  11. Yay! Top Box seems to always have some great items!
    I recently picked up the garnier bb cream in the medium/dark and have been loving it! It's more like a tinted moisturizer and I find that I need to apply some setting powder to reduce the shine, but I love the way it looks and feels...

    1. Topbox is pretty awesome. Good to know that the Garnier BB Cream has been working for you! I'm worried the sample colour will be too light for me and that I might have to mix it with something to make it work.

    1. The hair oil has been sooo nice! I've been using it on my hair after it has completely dried just before I go to bed and it feels so nice in the morning! (I have showers at night)
