Hi all! I have a new beauty box subscription coming in every month called TopBox. It's a Canadian beauty box at $12/mo, including tax and shipping. I'm not sure what to expect from it, but I'll give it a go and see if I like it! Each box usually comes with 4-5 items, which tend to usually be skincare with some cosmetics.
amika: Perk Up Dry Shampoo | I tried this out straight away because my hair was feeling greasy, and it worked great! I've only started to use dry shampoo regularly in the past month, I actually use a Batiste one. My mum really liked this amika one, and she loves the smell, so I'll be giving this one to her!
Delectable Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream | This hand cream will come in handy (ha-ha) come the Autumn and Winter months here in Canada. I haven't opened it yet as it's sealed, but I can sort of smell it through the seal. It says it smells like coconut & cream, yum! As much a I like hand cream, I just hope that in future beauty boxes I don't get an abundance of them.
The Face Shop Character Mask Pig | I've seen these character masks all over social media, and it looks like such fun. I'm a big fan of all kinds of face masks, so I'm happy to try this! I'll try and take a photo for instagram. Pigs are cute, right?
Starlooks Gem Pencil in Ultra Turquoise | This pencil is smooooth. I was scared swatching it that it would completely smush. It has the texture of a soft cream eyeshadow, and it blends out like a dream. Honestly, I wouldn't have ever picked this turquoise colour out for myself, but I think I can make it work. Once blended out, the turquoise colour is quite subtle but the shimmer is gorgeous, like a wet diamond effect.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara | Right, so I tried this last year and I didn't like it. However, I think I need to give this a fair second shot since the last time, my lashes were very brittle and sparse from wearing waterproof mascara on the daily. Nothing was really working on my lashes. I ended up going mascara free for a while, and used a lash serum until my lashes got back to normal. So I'll give this another shot since I hear so many good things about it! (I'm very picky with mascaras)
All in all, I'm quite pleased with my first box. I'm excited to try the face mask and to give the Too Faced Mascara another shot. The rest of the items are all good 'uns.
