February 2016 Topbox

So this Topbox posting is really late. My Topbox decided it wanted to take the long way around to get to me in Winnipeg. I know nobody likes coming here in the winter but come on! Canada Post took it on a ride from Mississauga to Dieppe, New Brunswick, then on to Montreal before arriving a week or so later in Winnipeg. I guess I should be happy it arrived this month at least! Then my camera decided it would pick last week to die. But it wasn’t dead! The SD card was corrupted and wouldn’t let my camera turn on. I was so happy once I figured that out. After some swearing and smashing of computer equipment, I was able to get some of the images off my card and onto a USB stick. Technology be a bitch sometimes! Teresa Smash!!! Ha but I am thankful I have my pictures now.

Bliss Fabulous Drench 'n' Quench | Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer 

Bliss Fabulous Drench 'n' Quench     deluxe sample
Full size: 1.7oz/$48
I quite like this moisturizer. It makes my skin feels really soft and smooth. Combine it with the Bliss Radiance serum and my skin looks great sans makeup.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer    deluxe sample 
Full size: 1oz/$44
I have tried this primer before and I thought it was good. I think there are maybe better priced options out there for primers. But on the other hand, I do really want to try Smashbox’s new smoothing primer.

Morgan Taylor Later Alligator | Nova Scotia Fisherman Sea Salt Soap

Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer - Later Alligator   full size
Full size $15.83
I have heard that Morgan Taylor is good polish. I kind of wish it was more of a Valentine themed colour but green will do as St. Patrick’s Day is coming up.

Nova Scotia Fisherman eXtreme Skin Care Sea Salt Soap     deluxe sample 
Full size: 4.8oz/$7.95
I could smell this as soon as I opened the mailbox. Wow it is strong and reminiscent of a man’s cologne. But this oil rich soap was quite moisturizing. I love the fact that it is made with so many good for you oils. Look at these ingrediants... 

Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Aqua (Water), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil*,Glycine Soja (Soy) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Parfum (Natural Fragrance Blend), Stearic Acid, Fucus Vesiculosus (Nova Scotia Sea Kelp)*, Maris Sal (Sea Salt), Tocopherol (Vitamin E)*

Psst Nova Scotia Fisherman has a free trial available – select 3 sample sizes and pay for $5 shipping

Overall I think it is a good box this month. I did find an amazing moisturizer in this Topbox this month and get to try out Morgan Taylor. Although, I wouldn’t know where to get Morgan Taylor in Canada.
Now that Birchbox has pulled out of Canada, you might want to sign up for Topbox to fill your beauty box void? Four deluxe samples for $12/month at Topbox.ca
