Topbox April 2013 — Elizabeth Arden

Over a week without an entry and it’s for a subscription box. I know, I’m horrible LOL! It’s okay, I’m going to prep another entry right after I’m done with this one! For April, I picked the Elizabeth Arden privé box.

Elizabeth Arden // Prevage Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum

[[ Lines lost, firmness found, luminosity returned. ]]
Full Size: $275/30mL || Received: $45.83/5mL

Elizabeth Arden // Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup

[[ Imperfections vanish. Skin is illuminated. Glow is recaptured. ]]
Full Size: $42/19g || Received: $4.20/1.9g

Elizabeth Arden // Beautiful Color Lash Enhancing Mascara

[[ Coats and curls. Lifts and lengthens. Every last lash. ]]
Full Size: $30/7mL || Received: $12.86/3mL

Elizabeth Arden // All Gone Eye and Lip Makeup Remover

[[ This two-phase formulation easily, gently removes even transfer resistant waterproof mascara. ]]
Full Size: $24/100mL || Received: $12/50mL

At first I thought, “Wow the sizes are kind of small..” but then the mascara and remover are actually around half the full sized product. On top of that I didn’t realize the Prevage Serum would be worth so much. $275 CAD!! That is pretty crazy. I haven’t tried it yet, but I mean, if I have to pay that much for a serum, my face better look like a baby’s bottom after I use it LOL! With the high cost of the serum, the box is worth approximately $74.89.

Topbox Janauary 2013 – Clinique

January’s Topbox came as a welcomed surprise! It was a box full of Clinique items. I’m actually pretty excited because I’ve been wanting to try out some of their skincare stuff, but I never really got around to it.

Clinique // Clarifying Lotion

[[ Formulated to help lift the world’s impurities to create healthier, younger skin. ]]
Full Size: $16.00/200mL || Received: $2.40/30mL

Clinique // Rinse Off Eye Makeup Solvent

Full Size: $25.00/125mL || Received: $12.00/60mL

Clinique // Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo

Clinique // Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

Full Size: $63.00/30mL or $93/50mL || Received: $13.02-$14.70/7mL

I wouldn’t mind getting more boxes like these from other high-end brands haha. February’s box has been mailed earlier this month too so I’m excited to see what they have in store for us!

GlossyBox Canada May 2012

It seems that Glossybox has made it a habit of shipping on the last couple days of the month so we end up getting the box in the first couple days of the next month. I have been impressed with all their boxes that I’ve received thus far, but I have to admit it is a bit annoying when it comes to the shipping date. I’m guessing not GB’s fault but we didn’t get shipping notification for this month’s box either. Canada Post glitch? Anyway, this month’s box had a heavy weight to it so I was excited to open it.

Just wanted to mention, previously I would make a new post to review the items but I think I might just edit the unboxing post from now on. I feel like it takes over my whole blog when I do a separate post to review the items.

Curel // Foot Cream

[[ Significantly improve the look and feel of even the driest heels and feet with Curel Foot Therapy Cream – hydrates and softens dry, cracked feet in just 2 nights. NEW! ]]
Full size: 100ml/$3.99 || Received: 100ml/$3.99 (FULL SIZE)

Although this isn’t a high-end product I was sort of pleasantly surprised to get it. Not something I would usually buy by myself, but it’s an item I sort of need. My feet are always really dry and it gets to be a real chore to keep slathering on something to moisturize it. Now that it’s warmer out it’s sandals season and having dry feet looks really bad haha! I would regularly moisturize my feet but none of my moisturizers would really give me long-term effects. This promises to do something about my dry feet in 2 nights!

After one night of application I could already see that my feet weren’t as dry. Second night any scaliness disappeared. Quite impressed. I shall keep using it to see how it goes. But for now I shall give it a rating of


Simple // Eye Makeup Remover

[[ Simple Eye Make-up Remover effectively removes even waterproof mascara. Dermatologist tested Ophthalmologist tested. Safe for sensitive eyes. Contact lens users, Hypoallergenic. Noncomedogenic. ]]
Full size: 56ml/$9.99 || Received: 56ml/$9.99 (FULL SIZE)

I think these are the travel sizes, but I’m putting it as full size because they are purchasable in this size.

It’s nice to have a remover that doesn’t leave a slick of oil on the face. I like using this when I make a mistake while applying eyeliner. I would soak a q-tip with the remover and erase the line and it wouldn’t leave an oily patch. The only problem with this is that it can’t remove my waterproof mascara very well if I were to use it at the end of the day. It does fine removing eyeshadow, but anything that’s heavy would probably still be left on the eyes.


Simple // Facial Wash Gel

[[ Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel leaves your skin thoroughly cleansed and revived, is a perfect blend of our purest skin-loving ingredients. ]]
Full size: 50ml/$9.99 || Received: 50ml/$9.99 (FULL SIZE)

Again, I think this is a travel sized item, but I’m putting it as full size since they are purchasable in this size.

boxx Cosmetics // Wet/Dry Shadow

[[ boxx eye shadows are versatile and multi-functional. The wet or dry formula can be used to define line and highlight the eyes. ]]
Full size: 2g/$18.00 || Received: 2g/$18.00 (FULL SIZE)

Sebastian // Professional Volupt Shampoo

[[ Pump up the Volume with Volupt shampoo from Sebastian Professional. We wanted to give you this full size because you deserve it. 250ml of Volupt suds all for you. ]]
Full size: 250ml/$15.78 || Received 250ml/$15.78 (FULL SIZE)
LOVE that they gave us the whole bottle ::^^::.
Approximate Value: $57.75
I will come back to edit this post with my review on the items once I get a chance to try them out! If you’re interested in subscribing please consider using my link ::heart2::!
