August 2014 Topbox

by - September 05, 2014

I was walking the dogs last night and I noticed something disturbing on the ground - Leaves!!! NOOOOooooooo!!! Canada Geese are walking unabashed throughout my neighbourhood. All omens

I am not ready for Summer to be over. So not ready...I had to dig out my fall jacket this morning, brrrr.

So I am kind of back. I have been sort of around –lurking and reading blogs. But since I got back from my vacay this summer, I just haven’t been feeling the mojo for blogging. So I took a break.
So I am going to start right where I left off - August beauty boxes, starting with the August 2014 Topbox.

I once again opted for the regular Topbox. What can I say? I am a ‘roll the dice take your chances’ type of gal! I also chose the organza packaging option. I have enough Topbox tubes floating around in my closet waiting for some magical DIY project LOL.

August 2014 Topbox
This month, my regular Topbox included:

August 2014 Topbox Clinique Repaiwear
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream  
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream   deluxe sample
I can always use an eye cream. Always. Although I am a little leery about some eye creams, I know this Clinique RepairWear is face friendly for me. My skin has been getting better at tolerating products since I started using a glycolic acid toner. Toughen up baby.
August 2014 Topbox  Belvada
Belvada Nail Polish Remover Pads

Belvada Nail Polish Remover Pads – Lemon scented   full size
price unknown/28 pads
I kind of like these little tubes of polish remover pads. I kind of wish I got a different scent. This one sort of reminds of Sunrise dish detergent – that intense lemon scent I am sure.

August 2014 Topbox
LAQA & CO Lip Lube - Bee's Knees
LAQA & CO Lip Lube - Bee's Knees     full size
I thought this was cute but it so similar to a lipstick I already had (and didn’t wear) that I gave this to a bestie. She is loving it so far.

August 2014 Topbox Barefoot Venus
Barefoot Venus Wild Flower Macadamia Oil Hand Cream  
Barefoot Venus Wild Flower Macadamia Oil Hand Cream   full size
Potent scent – very floral but moisturizing. I actually used this at work and some asked if some sprayed some air freshener  O_o.

Swatch: Bee`s Knees 

I wasn’t super wowed by anything but there were no duds either. Everything will get tested out and ran through it’s paces.

If you want to get your hands on your own Topbox, go to and sign up. It is $12 + gst for this sampling service. Unfortunately, Topbox only ships within Canada.

  1. Sunrise detergent THAT's exactly it! I have these from another brand, but I'm sure they're made by the same people. I'd rather stick to good ol' cotton balls and remover, but they are great in a pinch I suppose.

  2. I opted for the regular topbox for September so I'm excited to see what I get as lately I've been picking prive boxes :)

  3. Glad to of found another makeup junkie from NL! Are you still blogging?

  4. People with stretch marks have had success with using glycolic acid treatments
