Favourites From the Boxes, September 2016

I’ve been meaning to write an update on the products I’ve been using from my boxes. There have been some really great surprises!

TOLAN Skincare Age Defense Cream, Topbox March 2016faves from boxes_Sept 2016 (4)faves from boxes_Sept 2016 (5)I’ve used this everyday since receiving it in my Topbox. I put this on  after I wash my face and feel that it gives me instant hydration. One pump is enough for my whole face so I only use about 2 pumps a day and I’m still only half-way through the bottle! It absorbs into my skin quickly which I like because I can put makeup on immediately afterwards. This has been my everyday go-to skincare cream before adding serum and eye creams and I’ve really been enjoying it. My skin feels more radiant with this product.

Arrow REVIVE Cooling Cheek Tint, Birchbox February 2016faves from boxes_Sept 2016 (2)faves from boxes_Sept 2016 (1)I received this before Birchbox stopped distributing in Canada and I only recently started using this. I did say that I would probably use this tint in the summer and I did! I’ve been wearing very minimal make-up in the summer (concealer, blush, mascara, lip gloss) so this goes really nicely with that look.
It’s not super bright and I like that it gives my cheeks a nice flush of colour, it’s very natural looking. It claims to cool the cheeks but I haven’t noticed that which I like, because I’m sure if it did that would annoy me.

Benefit Cosmetics Air Patrol, Topbox November 2015faves from boxes_Sept 2016 (6)faves from boxes_Sept 2016 (7)I wasn’t the biggest fan of this when I first received it but somehow I started using this in the summer. I ended up really liking this formula when prepping for the weddings I attended in August.I like that how this BB Cream Primer canceled out the the colour in my eyelids so that my eyeshadow stood out more. I also think I appreciated the SPF 20 in the summer more. My eyeshadow pretty long with this primer and even in the humidty. I’m definitely picking up the full size.

Have you been loving any products sent from your beauty boxes?

Lots of Love,

  1. I wanted to try that Tolan cream! I also got the Air Patrol from Topbox last year and it was my first time using eyeshadow primer. Loved how much better my shadows applied and lasted!


  2. The blush tint looks really natural and easy to use! I’ve been dabbling in some blush tints that I got samples of too (Becca and Josie Maran) and I like them better than cream blushes.


    • It issuper light which I like. I feel like I’ve really changed up my makeup look over the summer and gone more minimalist for everyday and thus blush is perfect for that. I’ve never been into cream blushes but tints I like (I really loved benetint from benefit for the longest time)

      I’d love to read how you like the Becca and Josie maran tints
