TopBox Reveal | December

12/17/13




Eeep finally! I was waiting all December for my December TopBox to come, and it finally came in the mail on Friday. Since my last, November Topbox, was somewhat disappointing I wasn't too hopeful that I'd have any gems in this kit. However, I was a wrong! I hate being wrong, but in this case, I've accepted that it's for a good cause. There are a few goodies that I was happy to receive. 

All in all, I received another Cuccio Colour polish (hallelujah!) in A Kiss in Paris - this is a beautiful orange-based red. I absolutely love reds for any season and they are particularly festive for the holiday season. I also love the Cuccio Colour Polishes, they have such nice colours and last quite a while. The shape of the bottle is subtly different from other polish bottles, but really classic and a personal favourite.
I also received a smaller size of the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, which I had bought earlier this year. It's a great all around SOS product to have, as it can protect skin but it can also work as a band-aid for cuts and bruises. Fun Fact: Prince William apparently was recommended this product to protect his skin on a cold winter hike, and now swears by it!
The package came with a sample of the Estee Lauder Modern Muse perfume. I've said this a few times before, I only use one perfume, and I haven't found another that smells as good on my skin. Modern Muse is another perfume that doesn't smell that amazing on me. In general, this scent isn't something I'd pick up on my own anyways. It's a mid-strength floral scent with some citrus undertones, I can smell jasmine, maybe a bit of lavender, with lemons. It's very fresh and the scent could definitely be worn by younger women in the spring or summer season. 
Belvada Cosmetics, a Canadian skincare brand, also included a full size pot of their lip butter in Coconut. This product reminds me of the Body Shop lip butter, except it's much creamier and a touch more greasy - perfect for my dry lips. I find that it gives my lips the right amount of hydration they require. I'm hoping these become readily available in drugstores soon!
