The One with the Topbox January 2016 Box

TopBox has completely redeemed themselves from their very first box they sent me. My past two boxes have been awesome for the $12 they cost me. I thought I was going to cancel after my first box, but I gave it another shot and I’m very pleased that I did.

This month’s box was filled with some great brands and all products I can use. I always choose to receive my TopBox in an organza bag, to be a little more environmentally friendly. Plus, I always end up with cute little bags that I can use for gifts later on. Let’s look at what I got in my TopBox!

Shu Uemura POREraser Under Base Mousse

While I haven’t heard of this brand before, I have recently fell in love with using primers, so I can’t wait to try this one. It will be interesting to try a mousse product! It’s reviews are very good, and it’s quite an expensive product. This sample is around $18, making the cost of the box more than worth it.

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara

I love this mascara! I got this in my very first BirchBox and I thought I wouldn’t like it because it is “water resistant” and I normally dislike waterproof mascara. But after trying it, and seeing how amazing my lashes looked, my mind changed quick. It doesn’t go on like a waterproof mascara at all. It goes on nice and smooth, and is easy to remove. I like how dark and full it made my lashes look. I’m so happy I got another sample of this!

L’Occitane Shea Butter Dry Skin Hand Cream

I think most of us are experiencing bouts of dry skin due to the harsh weather. This hand cream is 20% shea butter (which I’m guessing is a lot if they are boasting about it?) which is super moisturizing. My hands have thanked me for using this stuff. I really do feel a difference. The scent wasn’t amazing to me, but it was not bad at all.

Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Smoothing Primer

Yay, another primer! Honestly, my foundation has looked so much better since I started using primers. I’m really happy to get to try another one from such a great brand. This primer is supposed to even the skin’s texture, and minimize pores and fine lines. Can’t wait to try this!

So, there we have it. 4 great products for $12! I am happy that TopBox made it up to me with two boxes in a row that I was super excited with. Of course, now I can’t wait to see what they have in store for me for next month!
