March 2014 Topbox

Hello, Spring!

Oh, Topbox. This was just not a good box for me, personally. :(

I received:

DSC04387

Clinique – Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
– I received this in a previous month’s box, so I’m not too pleased about getting this again. I do like the lipstick, but would rather try something new! Topbox really, and I mean REALLY needs to work on a better sorting system. I would like to stress that once again as I have received repeat products multiple times already.

Belvada Cosmetics – Blackhead Facial Mask x 2
– I’m not a big fan of peel off masks and I have already heard of how difficult and painful it is to remove this brand’s mask (also leaving redness on the skin). My skin is a bit on the sensitive side, so I’m not sure if I’m willing to put it through a rough peel.

Lashem – Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer
– I don’t have any wrinkles yet (and hopefully won’t get them any time soon!), so this product is of not much use for me.

Benefit Cosmetics – BADgal Lash Mascara
– I tried the They’re Real! mascara and it left smudges under my eyes, so I am thinking that this mascara will do the same. Plus, I have tons of other ones to still go through, so I will probably not use this.

This box was just not my cup of tea. I probably will not be using any of these products. BIG sigh. I think this is the first time this has happened where I won’t be using anything. I know I shouldn’t be complaining because we are paying for products to try out and you can easily purchase things that you DO want, but I think maybe products should be grouped/sent out in age categories by paying attention to profiles (ie. sending firming/wrinkle reducing products to more mature subscribers or bright nail polishes to younger subscribers etc.) And who really wants to put on a peel off mask that burns?! Just my thoughts.

What did you receive in your March Topbox?

Check out what I got in my February Topbox:

  1. I got the same Topbox as you. About the mascara, I find Bad Gal to be better than They’re Real – no smudging and no removal issues for me. Give it a shot!
