Topbox | April 2014

Wasn’t too much going on with April’s Topbox, but at least the background I photographed on was a little bit more exciting than what was going on inside the box…

LA Splash | Nail Splash in Grey Cashmere

Nail Splash is formulated to be quick-drying and long-lasting. Apply two coats for gorgeous nails.

Thoughts: I have never heard of this brand before, but the colour is a pretty opaque brown-grey and will be a great addition to my nail polish family!

Full size: 10mL/$7.50

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Elizabeth Arden | PREVAGE Anti-Aging and Intensive Repair Eye Serum

Help tighten, firm and smooth the appearance of visible aging signs around your eyes with PREVAGE Anti-aging and Intensive Repair Eye Serum.

Thoughts: Oh my goodness this is so expensive so thank you for the sample I suppose? I’ve received quite a number of Prevage samples over the last year and maybe I’m not at the age where I can appreciate its benefits, but for now it’s just a glorified moisturizer to me.

Full size: 15mL/$155.00(!!)

I received: 2mL/$20.67 (Crazy!)

Sweet Pea Soap | French Green Clay

With French green clay, green tea and licorice root extract our all natural soap draws out oil and toxins and helps even skin tone

Thoughts: It smelled very refreshing and was quite soft in texture.

Full size: 1 bar/$5.95

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Pur-Lisse | Pur-Moist Hydra Balance Moisturizer

purlisse

Infused with white tea, blue lotus and French Marine plants prevent fine lines and wrinkles while hydrating, soothing, balancing and creating the perfect canvas for makeup application.

Thoughts: I’ve received a number of pur-lisse things over the years in sample boxes, but have yet to try anything! I’ve heard so many good things about their products though so I don’t know why I haven’t taken the plunge yet!

Full size: 50mL/$55.00

I received: 15mL/$16.50

Total Value of April Topbox: $50.62

I think the Prevage sample really made this Topbox balloon in price, but I wasn’t too impressed with this box as I would have preferred more makeup than skincare…
