Review: Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Skincare Collection

I have been interested in trying more products from the Josie Maran line ever since the 100% pure argan oil became a part of my regular routine. I purchased this Winter Dreams Argan Skincare collection last December and today I want to share my thoughts.

In the Mail: Topbox February 2015

Another month and another subscription beauty box. Today I want to share what I received in this month's Topbox.



This Canadian beauty subscription box is $C12/month with free shipping and comes with four deluxe sample in each box.

For a total value of C$50:
  • Aveda Hand Relief Moisturizing Creme - 40mL (travel size 40mL for C$13.5) - value: $C13.5
  • Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Eye Gel - 5mL (full size 15mL for C$48) - value: C$16
  • Eyeko Hydrogel Eye Patch - 1 set (full size 4 sets for US$18) - value: US$4.5
  • Be a Bombshell Lip Gloss (Hooked) - 3g (full size 3g for US$14) - value: US$14

Aside from the lip gloss, I am looking forward to trying everything else in this box. The value of this box for me is ~C$35.

So far, I have only tried the Eyeko Hydrogel Eye Patch. The gel patches has enough serum such that it didn't feel dry even after 30 minutes on my face. I am glad that there wasn't too much excess serum and the eye patches stayed in place as I worked on my laptop. There was a slight tackiness when I removed the eye patches, but that disappeared in a few minutes. The shape of the eye patch was not a good fit for my eye area and I didn't really see any visible results. I would use it again, but I would not spend money on it.


What did you receive this month?

A Week in Switzerland: Geneva

Today I want to share the last stop on my trip. Geneva is about an hour and half from Bern [Read Here] and a one-way second class train fare was CHF50 (purchased on the day of travel). The city offers a complimentary Geneva Transport Card with any overnight stay for free local transportation.
