Time must be flying by because it feels like I just shared with you all what was in my last Topbox! I think we were pretty spoiled with last month’s Topbox, but this month’s box had some great products in it as well, one in particular that I was quite excited about!
Benefit They’re Real! Mascara
This long wearing, jet black, gloss formula reveals lashes you never knew you had.
Thoughts: If I see Benefit anything, I am a happy camper. I already have a full size of this that I am still working on, but I guess it’s always nice to have a backup/travel version. I don’t use this mascara everyday because I feel like my lashes are out of control when I use it. Although my baby Asian lashes probably look like “normal” lashes when I do and I’m just not used to it!
Full size: 8.5g/$29.00
I received: 3.0g/$10.24 (Topbox paid for!)
L’Essence by Balenciaga Paris
It is a sequel and a new beginning. A leathery violet fragrance, a new contemporary elegance.
Thoughts: I’m sorry, I don’t really like the smell of this…it’s so overwhelming. I definitely smell the “leather” in this fragrance. The sample size is great though so it’s just unfortunate that this isn’t my kind of scent.
Full size: 50mL/$110 and 75mL/$150
I received: 4mL/$8.00 (using second value)
Philosophy Purity Made Simple One Step Facial Cleanser
Formulated to gently cleanse, tone and melt away all face and eye makeup in one simple step.
Thoughts: I have never tried anything Philosophy before, can you believe it? Every since I saw Hope in Jar on Oprah’s favourite things years ago, I just always believed it was one of those brands I could never afford. It says it’s a 3 in 1 cleanser for face and eyes? I guess it must be pretty gentle then. Another great sample size.
Full size: 90mL/$13.00 or 240mL/$26.00
I received: 30mL/$3.25 (using second value)
M.Asam Perfect Teint
This primer immediately smoothes the appearance of lines, pores and imperfections for a flawless finish.
Thoughts: I have received a sample of this before in a previous Glymm box and found it to be quite greasy even for my drier skin. This might be ok when the weather gets a bit drier so I will see how this primer fares on my skin then.
Full size: 50mL/$42
I received: 5mL/$4.20
Total value of Topbox: $25.69
My favourite item is the Benefit mascara as I’m sure it was for most people who received this box. I’m also pretty excited to to try the Philosophy cleanser! I loved the variety of products I received and as usual have yet to be let down by a Topbox!
