BzzzAgent: Crest Pro-Health Bzzz Campaign

I was chosen for another Bzzz Campaign! Yay! this time it's for Crest Pro-Health. Here is what was inside of my BzzzKit!

Inside were the following:

Oral-B Pro-Health Toothbrush with Cross-Action Bristles 
Crest Pro-Health ProFresh Toothpaste
Crest Pro-Health Muti-Protection Mouthwash 

I'm always looking for ways to keep my teeth cleaner and whiter, so I am very excited to try these products! This BzzzKit was a bit different than other that I have received, because it actually cost $1. Still a great deal though!

July TopBox: GLAMGLOW Prive Box

My July Topbox came! A bit late, but great none the less! This month I opted for the Glam Glow Prive Box and I was so happy to receive it! Here's what was inside:

  • 2.1mL of the Supermud Clearing Treatment = $4.03
  • 15g of the Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment = $21.00

This month's value was awesome! I love that I received a high end product and am really looking forward to using it! I am torn with my choices for next month's Topbox. This box is an option again, minus the $10 gift card for think I'll try it out and go from there!

Summer Luxe Box 2013

My Summer Luxe Box came yesterday! This season there were a number of upgrades that you could choose from, but I decided to go with the regular Luxe Box and am very happy that I did! Here is what I got!

  • 4 Knotties = $8.00
  • A 7mL sample of Donna Karan Woman eau de parfum = $14.70
  • A 3mL sample of Kerastase Elixir Ultime = $1.30
  • A FULL SIZE Olay Total effects 7 in One CC Anti-Aging Cream with SPF 15 = $22.99
  • A 3.5mL sample of Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black = $8.31
  • A 3ml sample of Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10 for eyes & Lashes = $9.00
  • A FULL SIZE (60mL) of Barefoot Venus Coconut Kiss Macadamia Oil Hand Cream = $5.99
  • A Loose Button Foundation Brush = UNKNOWN VALUE

TOTAL VALUE: $70.29+

Overall, I was very impressed! The Knotties are very similar to the ones that i received from Julep and I do like them. I'm not a huge fan of perfume samples and this one is least it's a nice size and a pretty good scent. I love the Kerastase products! I think I have received one in each of my past Luxe Boxes. I love this sample size too, great for travel! The Olay product is new and hasn't even launched in Canada yet, it's pretty awesome to be one of the first Canadians to try it out, & it's FULL SIZE! Well done, Luxe Box! I'm always a fan of mascara samples. I find that I can actually use the sample sizes up before their 6 month expiration, and have never tried the Clinique mascara before. Also, definitely a fan that the sample came in black! The Vichy product is kind of "blah" for's okay, I'll use it, but not something that I would ever look to buy. I LOVE the scent of the Barefoot Venus Cream. I just want to eat it! I have never heard of this brand and really want to try more of their products! Seriously, it smells SOOOOOO good! The foundation brush is another "blah" product. It's nice to have, but I prefer my beauty blender.

A great box! I do really like Luxe Box and now comes decision time! My annual subscription is up! To re-subscribe or not to re-subscribe - that is the question!

Michael Todd Eye O Sonic

I saw this product on living social and couldn't pass it up! I first heard of Michael Todd products through Top Box. I received one of their exfoliating scrub samples and fell in love with the brand! The texture was perfect and the scent was heavenly! This gave me the itch to buy more from this company. When I say the Eye O Sonic on living social I tried to do some research and really didn't find much of interest, so I caved in and bought it to discover for myself! I used a promo code and this only ended up costing me $18 + $5.95 for shipping. Not bad for something that was regular $107.00!

I have very sensitive skin and was a bit worried, but this cream did not break me out! I have already noticed a difference in my eye area. The skin around my eyes is much more hydrated and my sun lines are becoming less noticeable. This product is so easy to use and definitely doesn't make putting on eye cream more of a hassle or more time consuming...instead it makes it easier and it feels really nice. The vibrations of the Eye o Sonic are quite subtle and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this product!

Julep Warehouse Sale

Juelp had an amazing warehouse sale, so of course after skipping the last few months, I splurged! Here are my goodies!

I ordered the following:

  • Feet 101 - $6.00 (The Best Pedi Prep Ever, Kylie, Toe Separators, Foot File)
  • Glow On Age Defying Hand Brightener - $ 5.00
  • Emeral Druzy Neckalce - $3.00
  • Smoky Grey Jeweled Necklace - $5.00
  • Exclusive Make-Up Bag - $5.00
  • Grapefruit Galore - $6.00 (Grapefruit Body Scrub, Grapefruit Body Frosting, Exfoliating Mitt)
  • Sun Kissed Skincare Set - $5.00 (Daylight Defense SPF 30 Face & Hand Cream & SPF 15 Lip Balm)
  • Hand & Cuticle Stick - $5.00
My total came to $40.00. I did order the Hand & Cuticle Stick separately and am still waiting on that package. I did not received the Grapefruit Body Frosting in my package, so I'm hoping that it comes with my Hand & Cuticle Stick. I have already contacted customer service though and am waiting on their reply. What a great haul for $40! I really am more fond of Julep's products than their polish, don't get me wrong I love their colours, but I'm a bit on polish overload right now! 

Did you buy anything from the warehouse sale?

Jewel Mint 3 Piece Mystery Box!

I had a credit left in my Jewel Mint account and have been waiting for a mystery box to use it! I got a 3-piece mystery box and here is what was inside!

I was very happy to have received a nice variety! One chunky necklace....that I definitely wouldn't pick out for myself, but will probably wear. A set of two two-tone bracelets which are very wearable, but seem to be cheap quality and a pair of earrings that I'm not overly fond of. All in all the mystery drew me in and I did get my money's worth. After all, 3 pieces are better than 1, right?
