I have just realized that it is now December and I have not blogged about the November Topbox! Time has just flown by! Work has gotten so busy that I just come home exhausted. I feel like I’m going to be tired for the next month or so just trying to keep up with Christmas parties and my work schedule. Oh well, that’s what beauty products are for – relaxing! This month’s Topbox was again a little lackluster for me, but there was one product that made this box an overall win for me. Let’s find out what it is! Although at this point, most of you already know what that may be!
B.Kamins Nia-Stem Moisturizer and Serum
Thoughts: I don’t know if I will really be able to see the beneficial effects of this line given the samples we received, but I have been wanting to try more B. Kamins products so I am happy to receive these as samples.
Full size: Moisturizer – 50mL/$125 and Serum – 30mL/$135
I received: Moisturizer – 3.25mL/$8.13 and Serum – 3.25mL/$14.63
China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Jungle Queen
Thoughts: Yay! I was praying for a colour I didn’t own and I got my wish! It’s funny, I like getting nail polish in beauty boxes, but most of the time I have the colours already :(
Full size: 14mL/$10 (Cheaper online and in salons)
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Cuccio Naturale Butter Blend
Thoughts: Apparently this has 10x the moisturizing power of lotion and is a non-greasy hydrating treatment. I’ve tried it on my hands and it is definitely non-greasy and hydrating, but 10x the power? I would need a frame of reference to prove that statement I think!
Full size: 240g/$18.95
I received: 9.24g/$0.73
Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum
Thoughts: These perfume bottle minis are always so cute! The scent is a little heavy for me so I will have to find a new home for mini Cavalli…too bad though, but that’s the thing with fragrance. It’s just so personal that you can’t always get it right!
Full size: 50mL/$80 or 75mL/$105
I received: 5mL/$7.00
Total Value of Topbox: $40.49
I have to say that this Topbox doesn’t seem like one worth $40+ as the samples were quite small and because the retail value of the face creams are so much, it really gives November’s Topbox a much higher value. Regardless, I did like the nail polish and body butter and I can’t wait for December’s Topbox because I’m hoping for something special for Christmas!
