January Top Box


I had a relatively crappy day today. Pretty much everything I looked at made me want to cry. Ugh, at least today was a pretty good mail day. My Top Box arrived- in it's neat round tube (see here.) I have to wonder if it costs more for them to ship it that way...

This month's selection is pretty great, no wimpy samples here and a Hands & Hair theme. Well, they don't officially state that, but it fits, so I'll use it.

 Cake 'It's A Slice' Velveteen Hand Cream

 The first item from "Hands" is a full size tube of Cake 'It's A Slice' Velveteen Hand Cream ($18). I have had great luck with all the Cake products I've used, and I am especially fond of their "Slice" scent- think orange creamsicles! This hand cream not only smells delish, it moisturizes quickly. It is a touch greasy, but I found it didn't linger too long and I could get back to business pretty quickly.

The second "Hand" item is Lilly Pilly Tea Tree with Rosewood Hand & Body Creme. I have never heard of this brand but that's the whole point, try something new. This is a thicker hand cream then the Cake one, but it doesn't leave a greasy feel. It does however have a bit of the signature tea tree scent... one I'm not that fond of, but we'll see how it goes as I get used to it.

Shu Uemura Full Shimmer Illuminating Shampoo 

In the "Hair" department we have Shu Uemura Full Shimmer Illuminating Shampoo. This is a very generous sample. I've yet to use it, so I really can't say too much, but it does smell quite nice; light and fresh.

Last, but not least, a product I almost bought a few weeks ago, Principessa Notte Breeze Dry Shampoo for Darker Shades. I'm excited to give this a try, as the full size is a bit pricier than I really care to spend on dry shampoo, but if it's worth than it's worth it, you know? I like that it's a Canadian brand as well.


Have you tried any of these product? Thoughts?
