I'm Back with July 2012 Topbox!

by - July 10, 2012

Heyyy! I am baaaackkk...

Sorry I haven’t posted for over a week. I was on vacation and was out of the city and away from the interwebz. Most days I didn’t even have cell phone reception!  Totally off the grid! I spent the week in Ontario, resting at the lake. It was HOT and lots of bug bites but good times overall J I want to do it again!!!

I had scheduled a couple of auto posts but for some reason they didn’t post L I am not sure what happened there?? Anyhow one was announcing I was on vacation and would be away for a week and half. I guess I do not need to post that now haha.

But I am back and I have my July 2012 Topbox! Love that I just get back and I had my Topbox waiting for me at work!

July 2012 Topbox

If you are not familiar with what Topbox is ... Topbox is a Canadian Beauty Box subscription service that retails for $10/mth for 4 premium beauty samples each month.

In this month’s Topbox was;

China Glaze nail polish in Pink Voltage    Full Size
Full sized $10
I was super stoked to get this colour! It is neon pink with a hint of purple shimmer. Love it love it love it! I can’t wait to get my next pedicure with this!

NuMe Hydro Punch Hydrating Shampoo   Deluxe sample
Full size 250ml/$24.99
This shampoo is argan oil infused to help restore hair. I remember I received the Hydra Punch conditioner a few months ago in my Glymm bag and I liked it. Too bad I didn’t get a conditioner as well hehe that would have been nice.

We also received a $100 coupon to use for NuMe hair tools or extensions. I remember receiving one of these in my February Glymm box. I didn’t use it as I had just bought a new hair straightener but I do have my eye on the Wet to Dry styling iron. I am lazy and not having to use a blow dryer would be awesome in the morning rush to get ready. FYI – shipping to Canada is $15.

Pure+Simple Calming Cucumber Mask   Deluxe sample
Full size 50ml/$25.25
I love cucumber face masks! I usually use the Balea one from Shoppers Drug Mart. They are great for those days your face is irritated and hates you HAHA. I am going to use this one this week for sure. I got a little too much sun and this will hydrate my sun soaked cheeks J

Sampar Essentials Ultra Hydrating Fluid  2 samples
Full size 50ml/$80
A moisturizing fluid for all ages and skin types with long lasting hydration and antioxidant protection.
I have never heard of Sampar before. Sampar is French cosmetic company. I just wish it was a bigger sample as it is hard to judge how well a moisturizer works from two little samples. I mean to see if there are any visible results. Plus it is expensive so I would want to be sure it was worth it before I bought it.

Overall it was good box, I was more impressed with last months box though. But the China Glaze nail polish is pretty awesome!

If you want in on Topbox there is a waiting list and it is quite long so if you want in you better sign up now! J

Ah I am so glad to get back to my blog. I had high hopes when I was on vacation. I took a ton of makeup with me (with the intent on doing some FOTD) and barely used any of it. I wanted to swatch products but summer fun got in the way HAHA oh well maybe next time!
