March 2014 Topbox | Philosophy

by - March 19, 2014

Oh what a March it has been (for me). Snow, snow and more snow. I have snow piled 7 ft high in my condo patio. I have a large enclosed patio area and I cannot even get to the shed. Crazy! Plus I haven't been feeling too well. My medication for the A.S. stopped working and threw me into a wicked flare, then I got a cold on top of that! YAY for me! But I am feeling better tonight. I hope this warmer weather stays and my new meds work fast! #weareNOTwinterANYMORE!

So I was quite happy when I saw my Topbox in the mail today! I opted for one the Prive boxes; the Philosophy box.  I always wanted to try the Philosophy line but just never have. I find Philosophy kind of pricy so being able to try these deluxe samples is a fantastic way to try out the line. And all for $12! 

This Philosophy prive box consists of 4 Miracle Worker products. I have heard a lot of good things about the Miracle Worker range from Philosophy as well as their holiday launches.

Let’s see what I got;

March 2014 Topbox Philosophy
Miraculous Anti-Aging Lotion
Miraculous Anti-Aging Lotion    deluxe size
Full size 50ml/$62
Infuse moisture while minimizing the signs of aging with this satiny, lightweight formula that packs a radiant punch. The oil-free formula is comfortable for all skin types, including oily skin, and features a unique complex that helps replenish the natural moisture barrier for a beautifully smooth complexion. Loaded with antioxidants, vitamin E, and resveratrol, this lotion supports natural collagen, brightens tired skin, and promises to protect from environmental attack—the primary cause of premature aging. [- Sephora]
I was kind of thrown through a loop when I saw this in my box. My card states I should be getting the Lactic Acid 2in1 Cleanser but instead got this lotion. Don’t get me wrong I happy with this pleasant turn. I can always use moisturizers! Especially anti-aging!

March 2014 Topbox Philosophy
Miraculous Anti-Aging Concentrate
Miraculous Anti-Aging Concentrate        deluxe size
Full size 30ml/$62
Bolsters skin's natural ability to self rejuvenate as it helps support natural collagen, resulting in increased firmness [- Sephora]
I am not a serum master but I do love using them serums! I can’t wait to try this one out.

March 2014 Topbox Philosophy
Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Eye Repair
Miraculous Anti-Aging Retinoid Eye Repair         deluxe size
Full size 15ml/$78
Restore and renew the delicate eye area with this formula that includes Philosophy’s high-performance retinoid—an ingredient that delivers all the benefits of retinoid with less potential for irritation. This eye cream supports natural surface cell turnover and natural collagen to dramatically improve the look of wrinkles and discoloration. The addition of peptides reduces the appearance of undereye bags and dark circles for a brighter, more ageless appearance.[- Sephora]
I am not a firm believer in eye creams plus I am  always hesitant about trying eye creams. Most eye creams give me bumps/millia under my eyes. I don’t know why. It just happens. So most nights, I use my Lise Watier night cream or La Roche Posay serum/lotion instead. I never break out from those. There are very few eye creams that do not make be break out. Will this miraculous anti-aging Retinoid Eye Cream be the one? I will let you know. But for $78 it better be HG status.

March 2014 Topbox Philosophy
Miracle Worker Overnight Age Resetting Anti-Aging Moisturizer
Miracle Worker Overnight Age Resetting Anti-Aging Moisturizer            deluxe size
Full size 30ml/$62
Make the nighttime your prime time for rejuvenation. A unique age-resetting complex contains a rare marine algae extract to help target age-accelerating proteins. Powerful peptides and next-generation vitamin C help support natural collagen while proven hydrators lock in moisture while you sleep. With these age-accelerating proteins, you can now wake to deeply hydrated, healthier-looking, silky soft skin .[- Sephora]
Right now my favorite night cream is the Lise Watier 3D Lift and Firm.  I am pretty much loving that right now so this will need to be super freakin' fantastic to make me put that one down.

So glad I opted in for this box. I know I get pissy when I get a subscription box that doesn’t have any makeup in and is all or mostly skin care but this time I was really curious to see what was in this Philosophy Topbox.
The products sent make for the perfect daily routine; apply the concentrate, then the lotion. (LOL I just went to 'it rubs the lotion on it's skin' in my head HAHA)

Ah okay where was I? I would then apply eye cream before I I top off my bedtime routine with the Miracle Overnight as my night cream. I think I will try using these all next week and see how long the samples last me.

I can’t wait to see what miracle these Philosophy products can perfom. Did you get the Philosophy Topbox this month?

  1. I got the same box too and quite happy with the products I received. But just a little disappointed in the tiny sizes we were sent.

    1. I hear you about the teeny sizes. I figure we have about 3 days worth of product. But still happy with the selection too. :)

  2. Great post! Have you tried other philosophy products? Purity is pretty good :)

    1. I have only tried these Miracle products, which I have to say are pretty darn good! Plus the sample I got are lasting into week two now. Impressed 😍
