December Nature Box Canada

This is my last box curated by Nature Box during the Beta Testing phase of their Canada launch. I am happy with this box but more than excited to be able to choose my own snack next month!

Cranberry Medley
This was yummy. I really liked the dried blueberries in it!

Greek Yogurt Pretzels
These were SOOOOO good! I really like them and would get them again!

Dark Cocoa Almonds
These were pretty good. I like them enough. I could only eat a couple at a time because they are quite bitter. Not my favorite.

Parmesan Garlic Pop Pops
These were very flavorful, almost overpowering. Not my favorite.

Country Ranch Sunflower Kernels
These were really yummy! Not really a strong ranch taste, but still good!

All in all, it was a yummy month, but I am so excited to be able to choose my own snacks next month!

March Julep Box: Wow! Beauty Lover Mystery Box

I haven't gotten a Julep box in a while and decided to spend some of my points this month to get the Wow! Beauty Lover Mystery Box.

Here's what I received:

Inside were:
Plush Pout in Cardinal Red - $20 USD
Gel Eye Glider in Olive - $16 USD
Night Shift Mask- $34 USD 


I kind of expected more, but am happy with the Night Shift Mask and the Plush Pout. The colour of the lip product is so nice (Cardinal Red) and pigmented. It goes on smoothly and lasts a long time. I always like a face mask, so I am really happy to have gotten the Night Shift! I am not excited about the eye glider, due to the fact that I have so many eye liners right now. I am happy that it is in the colour Olive and not Black though.

Julep Mavens can use the code TAKE30 to get 30% off their next purchase.

March Topbox

Another month, another Topbox! This month I opted for the Regular Topbox and got B3.

Here's what was inside:

This box contained:
  • A FULL SIZE Medusa's Make-Up Lip Glass in Space Kitten: $11.25
  • A 30mL sample of BC Hairtherapy Moisture Kick Beauty Balm: $3.55
  • A 2.8mL sample of Estée Lauder Sumptuous Infinite Daring Length + Volume Mascara: $13.53
  • A 12g sample of B. Kamins Bio-Maple Maple Sugar Body Scrub: $3.39

I am excited to try the hair product and the scrub sample will be nice to throw in my travel bag. Though the lip product is full size, it is not very pigmented and smells like plastic...so I am still undecided on whether I like it or not. I am very disappointed in the mascara, because I have already received this sample (September 2013) and this box is supposed to allow you to try out new products. I am going to e-mail them, so we'll see how their customer service is.

February TopBox

My February TopBox came and I am so excited that I received the Benefit Privé box this month! This is the third year in a row that I have gotten a Benefit Privé box from Topbox and I have never been disappointed!

Let's look inside!

This box contained:

A 3mL sample of Porefessional: $4.93

A 3g sample of It's Potent! Eye Cream: $8.00

A 2.5mL sample of Puff Off! Eye Gel: $8.24

A 3g sample of Roller Lash Mascara: $9.67


This Benefit box did not disappoint! There were two samples of new products which I am really excited to use! (the Roller Lash & the Puff Off!) I also really like the Porfessional, so I am happy to get another sample size!  I have tried the eye cream and like it fine, though not quite as much as my Origins eye cream. I don't think including two eye product was necessary, but oh well! Overall, I am very happy with this box!

January TopBox

My January TopBox came! Let's see what's inside!

This box contained:

  • A FULL SIZE MeMeMe Cosmetics Cherub's Blush Cheek & Lip Tint: $10.00
  • A 3mL sample of Lise Watier Firming Night Serum & A 3mL sample of Lise Watier Instant Lifting Day Serum: $11.70
  • A 7mL sample of Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Moisture Cream Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30: $8.40
  • A FULL SIZE Eyeko Eye Make-Up Removers: $12.00

Though the value of this box was good, I'm not very excited about any of the products. I can't see me using the tint at all (I still haven't managed to get through my tiny Benetint sample from years ago). The sunscreen and the serums are nice, but kind of boring. Same with the eye make-up removers. I am happy to receive 2 full size items, but not wowed by this month's box.
