September Topbox


Oh hey there! Long time, no blog. I apologize for that... to be honest, professionally I have overextended myself. I have taken on way to much and unfortunately my blog schedule has suffered because of it. Forgive me? I am working on simplifying my life so I can make time for the things I enjoy.. like blogging! I really miss all my blogger friends.. and I honestly did make an effort to still keep commenting on everyone's post even if I wasn't writing posts myself. 
 


Well, it was a long 4 month wait but my name finally came off the Topbox waiting list and I received my first box this month! I was so excited when I received my shipping information and literally two days later it was in my hands - fantastic ship time! I also enjoy receiving the box at the beginning of the month.  
 
In my September Topbox I found...

Benefit They're Real Mascara - I have been dying to try a high end mascara. I have always used drugstore mascara's failing to see the point in spending more. I was thinking of buying one of Benefit's mascaras to try and now I can try before I buy! Brilliant!
 
Redken Colour Extend Shampoo and Conditioner - Ah the good old packet sample. I do like Redken products but the packaging and the fact I do not colour my hair makes this sample a little so-so for me.
 
M.Asam Perfect Teint Primer  - I love the sample packaging of this primer! The little pot is super cute. I don't know if I am a huge fan of this yet...I have oily skin and this primer seemed to only enhance that but I will still give it a fair trial!
 
Vasanti BrightenUp Exfoliater - I love this product! I believe I received it in a Glymm box a long time ago and ended up purchasing it full size. I now have something to take with me when I am away.. perfect!
 
I could not be happier with my first ever Topbox. Again, well worth the wait. It also made cancelling my Glossybox subscription an easy choice!
 
Hope you enjoyed this (long overdue) post!

    1. Agreed they are amazing quality! The price tag hurts a bit but most of the time it is worth it!
