May 2013 Topbox Review



I know, I know- This post is ultra super late. I've been stalling on writing it because I hadn't tested out the products yet.

Anyways, for May I chose the February Favourites Topbox consisting of only three products. I pretty much only chose this box for the Deborah Lippmann polish because I had never tried it before.

On with the review...

1. B. Kamins Nutrient Replacement Cream Kx (Full Size $152): When I first received this product I thought it was some incredible moisturizer- Surprise! It's for women going through menopause. I tried it out anyways, and I enjoyed the feeling it gave my skin (very moisturizing, not too thin or thick) as well as the minty scent and cooling feeling it leaves when applied. The only problem was that it made me break out extremely bad and made my skin very oily. I definitely wouldn't repurchase for the price and also knowing that it's formulated for menopausal women. I also wonder why a product for such a specific group would be included in a Topbox...

2. Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi Use Powder Foundation (Full Size $42): When I ordered this box, I was fully aware that the colour of this foundation would probably be way too dark for me...and it is. I just really wanted to check out the texture, application, etc. of the product before I ever considered purchasing it. I did like how smoothly it applied as a dry powder, but now that I've gotten a taste, I wish I had it to review in my own skin colour (I couldn't tell if it would cover a blemish or not!). I also want to note that I thought the sample size was great, but the sponge that it came with did nothing for application and was completely useless. Below, you can view a photo of the product applied both wet and dry.

3. Deborah Lippmann Nail Laquer in "Since I Fell For You" (Full Size $20): I love, love, love this stuff! A few weeks ago, I did a double review on this polish and Essie's nail stickers, so basically, for a full review of this polish, click here.
