January 2012 Topbox

My first subscription box of the year to arrive and I am quite happy with it.

For those of you who don't know, Topbox is a great service that delivers you four deluxe samples. I have received some great products in my past boxes and this month was no exception (check out November & December).

There was a nice variety in this month's box, including a full-sized product.

I love this Lise Watier eyeliner. It comes in many different colours and has excellent application. It applies smoothly and doesn't tug on the skin. It's waterproof and lasts most of the day. 

The colour I received is in Smokey Brown and it's lovely. I prefer brown liner on an everyday basis because I like the natural look.

Like I said, this is a full-sized product, which means it's value is greater than the cost of the box!
Dry shampoo is probably my favourite hair product. It's perfect for me because I don't like washing my hair everyday. Sometimes my hair needs a refresher and that's where dry shampoo comes in.

I have tried other products from Principessa, like their shampoo and conditioner, but I didn't really love it. I really like their dry shampoo, though. I used it yesterday and it worked just like a dry shampoo should. 

It absorbed the oils in my hair, leaving it feeling refreshed and manageable.

I also really like that this product was personalized for my hair colour. The powder is a light brown colour, which works perfectly with my dark hair. The powder blends nicely and doesn't leave a noticeable residue.

You can never have enough hand cremes during the winter season.

I have never heard of this product before but I was excited to try it. It's a nice creme that is made of natural ingredients. It has a very organic scent to it that I am partial about but it feels nice on the skin. It is moisturizing and doesn't leave a residue on your skin.

I also really like that this product/brand is made in Australia. It's fun to try different products from other countries that you may not have heard of.

The last product in this month's Topbox is from Shu Uemura. It's a Musk Rose Oil hair mask that is supposed to leave your hair looking shinier and provides your hair with more body. Also, it's safe for colour treated hair!

I haven't tried it yet but when I do, I will give you an update.

So those were the products in this month's Topbox.

If you received a Topbox this month, please let me know what you thought of it (and if you received different products).

Hope you're all having a great day!
