December 2013 Topbox

Hello, winter.

My December Topbox arrived fairly quickly; I also did not receive a shipping notification so I was quite surprised to receive it in the mail today. Since it is December (end of the year/holiday season), I thought that Topbox might have included products that would go with a holiday theme or just something a little extra. Is that expecting too much? And yet again, I opted out of the Prive box options.

Anyways, here is what I received in the regular box:

DSC04351

Belvada Cosmetics Coconut Lip Butter
- This is apparently a new product from Belvada and I am excited to try this out as I love anything that has to do with coconuts and I religiously use lip balm especially throughout the day. It smells lovely and it feels very velvety when you apply this to your lips. I don’t however like that it is in a tub where you have to use your fingers because I feel that it’s quite unsanitary. I will definitely be using this though throughout the colder months when the weather makes everything (hands, lips, body) feel so dry!

Cuccio Colour Nail Lacquer in Moscow Red Square
- I have previously received this brand in a previous box and I do like the formula of this polish. The colour is also a pretty magenta red colour that would be perfect for the holiday season.

Estee Lauder Double Ended Kajal Pencil in Blackened Black and Blackened Cocoa
- I’m not too excited to try this product because I’m not a fan of pencil liners. I’m a liquid liner kind of gal! So this product is of not much use to me and I think I may have to give this away. I like that it includes two different colours though–a black and a brown to give you a variety if you bring this along when you travel.

Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray
- I have heard good things of this product and I am definitely going to try this out because thermal sprays are a must to protect your hair when using heat styling tools. I have seen others receive this in previous boxes though and I feel that this is just a leftover that Topbox needed to get rid of. I will be using this though and it is a full size product which is awesome.

I feel like this month’s products included leftovers from previous boxes that Topbox was unable to get rid of (ie. Wella thermal spray and Cuccio Nail Polish). I also hoped that maybe something “Christmassy” could have been included just because it is the month of December. I will be using 3 out of the 4 products though which is pretty good.

What did you receive in your December Topbox?
