April 2013 Topbox - Elizabeth Arden privè box

by - April 26, 2013


Well this Topbox posting is late! I left this in my drafts for some reason Oops J.

I opted for the Elizabeth Arden privè box for the month of April. I have never really tried Elizabeth Arden before and when I saw they had a sampling of the cream foundation I was all over it.

So what was in it? Let’s take a look...

I am pretty excited to try this. It looks like a good match for my skin. It came with a teeny tiny sponge which I won’t be using it. It seems to dry down to a pretty nice finish. We will have to see how good of coverage it has. From what I can tell from reviews, you will either love this foundation or hate it. Anyhow it is always fun to try something new. After all that is what these boxes are all about, right?

Okay I love getting makeup removers in my subs. I never have to buy any LOL and I use them almost daily. So I will be adding this to the queue. Plus I have heard it is pretty gentle so that is a great.

Prevage Anti-Aging Intensive Repair Serum

Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Intensive Repair Daily Serum  deluxe sample
Full size: 30ml/$275
I had to read that price for the full sized version a couple of times.. What? What? My mind can’t handle that. Anyhow this serum is supposed to revitalize damaged skin. I tried it the first night I got it. I was hoping it would be my miracle lotion LOL. I had to wash it off my face after two hours. I couldn’t stand the burning sensation. My face felt soft afterwards but it was warm. I couldn’t handle wearing it all night. I don’t think this serum is for me. I think it is too strong for my skin.

I am always will to try new mascaras. Especially one that is touted to enhance your lashes over time. I can only hope that this will work and make my average little lashes amazing. Hope in a wand HA.

Remember last month in March Topbox, my poor Pure + Simple blush arrive smashed to smithereens? Well the replacement came in my April box. I knew the colour would be gorgeous but seeing it whole is happiness. It is pretty pigmented so I apply it with light hand. Thank you Topbox!

So I was pretty happy with my April Topbox. I got to try a good sampling of Elizabeth Arden products. Too bad about the serum though. Oh well I don't have $275 to spend on serum anyhow.

I received the Topbox wish list for May but nothing really jumped out at me so I am opting for the regular Topbox for May. I can’t wait to see what it brings...

  1. I can't believe the serum burned your skin! I just finished a sample of it and I definitely didn't notice a difference that would make me pay over $200 for it!

    1. Yep some active ingredient did not like my face :( oh well there are more serums to try. Besides I don't think I would want to spend $200 on a serum either. I also think the foundation was terrible. At least on my skin it was - just so cakey.
