I received July’s Topbox at the beginning of the week which came with four products, one of which was personalized based on a survey from last month.
In July’s Topbox we have:
Pure + Simple Calming Cucumber Mask
A refreshing all-natural skin calmer! Soothe your skin and invigorate your sense with this freshly scented gel mask. Potent all-natural ingredients such as vegetal collagen, cucumber extract and Indian senna seed extract relieve irritation and redness while cooling and firming the skin.
Thoughts: I’ve never heard of Pure + Simple before which isn’t surprising considering they are a spa company located in Toronto. I’ve been using a lot of masks lately so I am very much looking forward to trying this product. This mask is heavily cucumber-scented so if you are not a fan of cucumbers, this might bother you. Luckily, I am a fan so I quite enjoy the scent.
Full size: 50mL/$25.25
I received: 20mL/$10.10
Sampar Essentials Ultra Hydrating Fluid
A moisturizing fluid for all ages and skin types with long-lasting hydration and antioxidant protection. Provides long-term hydration (white lupin protein) and protects the skin from harmful effects of pollution (urban advance complex).
Thoughts: This looks to be a moisturizer for the “modern city dweller” that uses some pretty exotic-sounding ingredients to give radiant and beautiful skin. I’m not sure about this product…it sounds like it will be a glorified moisturizer to me, but I am grateful to Topbox for providing us with two samples to try.
Full size: 50mL/$80
I received: 4mL/$6.40
NuMe Style Hydro Punch Invigorating Shampoo
An incredible blend of Morocco’s finest argan oil, this shampoo unravels years of dullness, damage, split ends, chemical damage and much more.
Thoughts: I had to laugh when I saw this because now the matching conditioner that I received in May’s 2012 Glymm Bag now has a friend! We also received a $100 gift certificate to use towards NuMe styling tools, but unfortunately for me this will be going straight into the recycling…
Full size: 250mL/$24.99
I received: 20mL/$2.00
China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Blue Sparrow (Neon)
Our unique lacquers contain china clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish. These glossy lacquers work in perfect cohesion with out professional nail treatments for lasting strength, durability and overall gorgeous nails.
Thoughts: This is my favourite item in the Topbox except for one thing…I already have this colour!! I got this colour last year and used it in my Birks Blue Box manicure on my accent nail. Anyone want to swap?
Full size: The info card says $10-$12, but I get mine at Chatters for $6.99…
I received: *FULL SIZE*
This was a fairly good Topbox that I think I would have loved more if I had received a nail polish colour that I didn’t own, but that’s my own fault for being such a polish whore! China Glaze is a fantastic company with some amazing nail polishes and I’m glad they were included in this month’s box. If anyone wants to trade nail polish colours, let me know!
