September TopBox

It's that time of the month again, my TopBox arrived today and here is what I got:

Institut Esthederm Lift & Repair Absolute Smoothing Cream 10ml
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo 0.75 net wt oz
Essie Nail Lacquer in Sand Tropez
Bioderma Sebium Purifying Foaming Gel 15ml

I picked the regular TopBox this month again as the choices of other prive boxes do not excite me. I am almost at the point where I am ready to cancel my beauty subscription box. Not that the products sent are disappointing or not worth the monthly charge. It is just I only use a handful of products and give a lot away. Most of those are shades of products I don't use or they are products I have no interest in trying. 

Essie nail lacquer is always a plus as I love Essie. The shade I was sent is Sand Tropez. I have not tried many nude nail polishes and this one is a very light sand color. Not sure if this would look nice on my nails but will definitely try it.

Bioderma is a skin care brand I adore. So happy to receive and try their purifying foaming gel.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo is something new to me. I haven't heard of the brand. I am open to try new dry shampoo. This one is actually quite nice. Smell nice and does not leave a white residue on my dark hair. The size is perfect to just throw in my purse. I have other travel sized dry shampoo but if I am desperate enough to spray hair shampoo onto my hair during the day, I really don't want to deal with white/grey residue and don't have time to brush it out thoroughly. So this is a very nice product.

Last but not least is Institut Esthederm Lift & Repair Smoothing Cream. Another brand which is new to me. This is to be applied morning and evening on clean dry skin. I have a lot of moisturizers in my drawer queuing up to be used up. So this one would join the pile.


  1. ouuu this looks pretty good! Sand Tropez is an awesome shade! :D

    1. yes, pretty happy with this month's bag. Excited to try Sand Tropez as I rarely do nude nails.

  2. i thought sand tropez is a nice shade too, but maybe not for me. still looking for a nice essie nude everyday polish. such a shame that most shades i want were limitted edition and are now gone =\
