Just a heads up that this will probably end up being a rant post and I really hope that this won’t be the trend for the rest of the beauty boxes this month.
I am really not happy with this months box. I was kind of expecting a box with a little more to it since Christmas is coming and I am hoping that December’s will be filled with all kinds of goodies. Otherwise I am probably going to cancel it.
This month I stuck with the standard box that is printed cause I personally like them more and it looks so nice sitting on a shelf.
This month we once again got samples from B. Karmins. They are a Canadian company. They sent Nia-Stem Moistirizer Kx. Its an anti-aging moisturizer. The full size is 50ml for $125
Also included was Nia-Stem Serum Kx and its an anti-aging serum. The full size is 30ml for $135.
The samples are rather small and not sure how many uses you can actually get out of this and I honestly probably won’t try them because I am worried about trying brands I am unfamiliar with on my face since I had that allergic reaction to another skin care product.
An item I was happy to try was the Cuccuo Naturale butter Blend. Its a moisturizing lotion and I liked this. It left my skin silky and smooth. It wasn’t greasy. It was a nice smell. The full size is 240 g for $18.95. I got it in the scent of pomefranate & Fig
Now here is where my rant will begin. Topbox had mentioned that we were going to get holiday shades and can someone honestly tell me that this is a holiday shade? Its describe on the site as:
CITRUS PLAYFUL NAIL LACQUER IS A GORGEOUS CORAL RED, THIS TWO COAT COVERAGE POLISH IS 3 FREE, SHINY AND LONG WEARING.
I find this to be more of a summer shade is it not? Anyways I went on their facebook page to voice my opinion and bascially they weren’t reading what I was saying and would reply back with try it you will love it and I said I would love it had it been sent to me in the spring, this isn’t a holiday shade in my opinion.
I wore it for a day to get some opinions and basically I was told the same thing that they would wear this in the summer and not winter. Its far to bright for my white hands in the winter.
The set is called Pandora’s Polish and Perfume and its a new product. As for the perfume as you can see it looks like nail polish in the very first picture. I put some on and hated the scent right away and as time went on the scent become aweful. This would be something I would never wear again.
Its described as:
THE FRAGRANCE IS FRESH AND LIGHT AND EASILY APPLID WITH A BRUSH OR YOUR FINGER. GREAT FOR TRAVEL. THE NOTES OF THE PERFUME INCLUDE: ALDENYDES-JASMINE-ROSE-ORANGE BLOSSOM-CEDAR-AMBER-OAKMOSS-GALBANUM-JASMINE
For me this box wasn’t worth the money I paid for it since they did a price increase Iit was $10 and they increased it to $12). Sadly if the December box isn’t any better this will be one box I will end up canceling. I am a little turned off by not only the box but the response I got on facebook from them in regards to my concern.
What did you guys think of it?
