August TopBox

I opted for the regular box for August TopBox. I also picked the satchel packaging instead of the regular tube box to minimize cardboard waste.

4 decent-sized products this month and I'm very happy about this:
Barefoot Venus Macadamia Oil Hand Cream 60ml
LAQA & Co. Bees Knees Sheer Lip Lube Pencil
Belvada Cosmetics Nail Polish Remover 28 pads
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream 5 ml

Out of the 4 products, the only brand I have heard of is Clinique. It is a repairwear laser focus wrinkle correcting eye cream which I also have a sample size of but haven't tried yet. I always like to test out new eye cream so I don't mind at all.

Barefoot Venus Macadamia Oil Hand Cream is quite nice. I haven't tried any Macadamia Oil hand cream product. Only for hair. This has a very nice scent to it which contains macadamia nut oil, sesame seed oil and wheat germ oil. Not super oily and greasy.

LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil is also very nice. It is a glossy lip balm with peppermint shea butter and a hint of mint. The shade is very pretty. A coral pink. It is not very sheer as the name suggested and looking forward to trying it on my lips.

Last but not least is Belvada Cosmetics Nail Polish Remover. This comes with 28 pads and it is lemon-scented and acetone-free. 

Quite happy with what I received this month's TopBox. What box did you pick this month?


  1. i also have no idea about the other brands here other than clinic. its one of the things i sometimes dislike and like about subscription boxes. its nice when it works, new brand discovery! but the chances of that happening is usually low for me hehe. but id be happy to get this box too tho cause i heard clinic eye creams are good :)

    1. I, too, don't have much luck with new brands I haven't tried before. Clinique is a brand I trust skin care products with so I'm excited to try the eye cream.

  2. I really like that lip pencil! And i was wondering why it came in a bag but good for you for reducing waste haha!

    1. I have accumulated so many TopBox paper tubes in the past but it is adding up and I finally threw them all out and make room for something else :)

    1. I'm quite happy the the shade of this lip pencil. It is actually not as sheer as the name suggested so it is a bonus.

  5. I got mostly the same but instead of the Clinique I got foil packets of hair oil, bummer. My lippies turned out more sheer but was a sickly shade on me unfortunately.
