Topbox | Chatelaine Magazine Edition

At the end of August, Topbox alerted subscribers to a special Chatelaine Edition Topbox upon signing up for a Chatelaine magazine subscription. After receiving a copy of Chatelaine in the September Topbox, I decided to sign up for a yearly subscription as the magazine was surprisingly interesting (aka “I’m getting old”) and was at promotional pricing ($14.95/12 issues).

Benefit Cosmetics | Sugarbomb Ultra Plush GlossDSC_0002

Silky and luxurious shimmering pinky nude lip gloss.

Thoughts: I have the full size of this and have received a sample of this as well and I really enjoy the whole ultra plush gloss line. I won’t be keeping this sample for myself as I certainly don’t need another one! These glosses feel so smooth and silky on the lips and are the perfect companion to the famous Benefit boxed blushes!

Full size: 15mL/$19.00

I received: 6.5mL/$8.23

Clinique | All About EyesDSC_0003

Lightweight eye cream that diminishes the appearance of eye puffs, darkness and fine lines. Non-creep, cream/gel formula actually helps hold eye makeup in place.

Thoughts: I wasn’t quite ready to commit to the full size so this couldn’t have come at a more opportune time!

Full size: 15mL/$37.00 or 30mL/$62.00

I received: 5mL/$10.33

Lise Watier | Teint Age Control SupremeDSC_0004

Lise Watier created a new line of foundation with our exclusive concentrated Labrador Tea extract, a powerful antioxidant, at the heart of its active ingredients.

Thoughts: I actually have used this moisturizer before and if you’re looking for an anti-aging, highly moisturizing night cream, this is a great one to use if you have dry skin like mine.

Full size: 30mL/$48.00

I received: 5mL/$8.00

Wella Professionals | Thermal Image Heat Protection SprayDSC_0005

Thoughts: I have received quite a number of Wella products during my 2 year love affair with beauty boxes and incredibly enough, this is my first thermal spray. I don’t use a lot of hair products, but because I straighten my hair almost every day, thermal spray is probably the only product I will actively seek out and consistently run out of. Can’t wait to try this one!

Full size: 150mL/$14.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Total Value of Chatelaine Topbox: $40.56

Not a bad complimentary box at all! The contents is very similar to what we normally receive in a typical Topbox so I think I would have been pretty happy if this were my first Topbox EVER. I have been enjoying Chatelaine as well bookmarking recipes to try (ACK now I feel really old admitting that!)

Did anyone else take advantage of the Chatelaine/Topbox promo?
