Topbox - December 2016

I decided that I would cancel my subscriptions at the end of November. I went through all of my stuff, and created a spreadsheet on excel. That included sample and full size products. All of my makeup, and skincare, broken down by cleansers, moisturizers, eye shadows, lipsticks, brow products, etc. I'm sure you get the point. Anyway, seeing it all typed out into a spreadsheet really shocked me. Nobody needs that much product. Seriously. Why do I need 6 facial oils? I don't. So a part of my New Years resolution will be to work through my stash. I really don't see myself needing anything for at least half of the year. That's how crazy it is. Anyway, this is a pretty long introduction for my December Topbox. I cancelled my Ipsy, and Miss Blanco Joyful Box as well.

Usually I would include a picture of the prive choices, but a lot of them were repeats. As you can see above I chose just a regular topbox in an organza bag, like I usually do. The prive choices were delectable hand cream, a Missha magic cushion foundation, O.R.G peel face, Schwarzkopf Professional haircare including cc cream, shampoo, and a treatment for coloured hair. And finally a St. Tropez gradual tan in shower lotion. None of these grabbed my attention.

I just got a shadowbox to take pictures! I like how bright the light is, but it's quite smaller than I thought it would be. So I apologize now while I try and figure things out! I miss the day light!

Cake Beauty - Heavy Cream Intensive Hand Repair Balm 
This supremely hydrating formula renews and protects hands for immediate and long lasting results. Made with 20% shea butter, this warm french vanilla scent melts into skin.

Another hand lotion. I don't get through these fast enough at all. Not sure if I will pass it on or try and use it as a body lotion. I haven't opened it yet just in case I do decide to pass it on.

Bella Aura Skincare - Instant Lifting Eye Contour
Our Multi-Functional Instant Lifting Eye Contour significantly reduces the appearance of multiple signs of aging. It rejuvenates the eye area to look 6 years younger within 4 weeks.

Wow, that's a bold claim. Look 6 years younger within 4 weeks. This might be the next eye cream I need to try!

LARITZY - Pro Blender Sponge
Wet the pro-blender and squeeze out excess water. Using light, tapping motions, apply your makeup for a flawless finish!

I have a beautyblender that I'm using now, and I really love it. I've never really tried the dupes so I'm not sure how this one will compare. I will try this one next before opening another beautyblender.

FusionBeauty - StimulashFusion Brow Duo - Grooming + Enhancing Brow Gel
This high performance brow treatment encourages shape, length and fullness. This mini brow gel is supercharged with SymPeptides to enhance brows while grooming them and keeping them set in place.

This sounds interesting! Although I'm not sure how much it will grow the brows. Maybe I will try this once I finish my sample of gimme brow.

Overall, this wasn't the most exciting Topbox I have received. I'll be sad to see subscriptions go, but I really really need to start working on the items I have already. It keeps growing and growing and is getting quite overwhelming!
