I put it on and then went out of the house. The first thing I noticed is that is had a chemically smell. It was a bit strange. But then, it sort of made my skin all shiny, and I realized it was becoming sort of like a clear mask - my face literally felt a thin, mask-like layer on it at all times. Oddly enough, even when the wind blew over me, I could feel the wind on the rest of my skin, but it felt different on my face - like I had a bit of a plastic covering on. It was a really weird sensation. When I got home and washed my face, I could feel the cream coming off and then my face felt normal again.
|The cream - goes on white|
|It dries kinda of plastic-y and yellow though.|
I don't think I would use this again because I don't like how my skin felt with it on, and don't like creams to be sitting on my face, like a mask. It is also quite pricey $80 for 50 ml (full size). Anyway, if you got this cream, try it out and see if you had the same reaction.
So overall, July's Topbox was a miss for me. The products did not impress me and although I love China Glaze, I have a similar polish and tend to go for brighter colours. That's okay though. As those of you who play the beauty lottery through these beauty boxes know, you win some and you lose some. And Topbox generally has consistently great boxes so it doesn't diminish what I think of them. I'm still looking forward to the August box.
