Topbox December 2012 contents!

Time really flies!
I keep putting off updating my blog and did not realize that I still had a few Topboxes to review.
Part of the reason for not updating was due to a wrist injury and not being able to type as much.
That means there is quite a lot of catching up to do.........


Contents of my December 2012 Topbox:

Chloe: Eau de Parfum (5ml deluxe size, value.........../Full size 50ml $90)
I am not really into floral perfumes and this is quite strong and well, flowery smelling.
Have not really used this perfume enough to comment much more on it at the moment.

Ferro Cosmetics: Ultimate HD Foundation (1 gram size?, value.....................)
Not too sure what the exact size of the jar is as it is not stated. One thing I did not like is that there is no sifter with this small jar and that makes it harder to use as the container is 1" in size.
The jar label states that this is foundation, concealer and powder in one and a matte finish.
The colour Honey Creme is perfect for my skin and I am usually a medium beige in most makeup.
The coverage was also very good. I would purchase this makeup in the future and hope to try more from this brand.
I also liked that the sample did come in a jar as most mineral samples I get come in small zip top bags and are much harder to use.

Murad  AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser: (sample 30ml tube, value $6/ full size 200ml, $35)
I really like this cleanser! It left my skin feeling smooth and clean, yet not dry like some other AHA products.
This is a great travel size too. I will have to use this a bit more and report back.

Goldwell: Hot Form Spray: (sample size 30ml spray bottle, value $4.50/full size 150ml, $20.95)
Goldwell is a really good salon line. I've bought many of their products in the past (and used to buy their hair colour at the salon supply store).
I do not really heat style my hair much (esp w a wrist injury) and have not had the chance to use this yet.
Maybe I'll try it out on my bangs as it is the only part of my hair I use a hot brush on.


My thoughts on the December 2012 Topbox:
Overall I thougdht this was a pretty good Topbox. There was an item in each category-face,hair,skin and  to body. Seeing as it was a December box and the festive holiday season I did expect something a bit fancier or maybe something sparkly?
But the travel size cleanser and hot spray should come in handy for going away on holidays, while the perfume can be put in my bag to use during the day or whenever.
I'm still quite pleased with Topbox and plan on keeping my subscription!
