Hello! It's that time again! Topboxes were shipped earlier again this month -- I received mine on Monday, and actually didn't get the tracking number until after it was delivered, heh. I opted for the regular box this time around as none of the Privé options interested me.
Here's what I received...
Not as exciting as last month, but there are some gems...
Aveda Caribbean Therapy Body Cream
"A rich body creme with Caribbean mango, cocoa butter and warm island aromas."
Full size: $42 (200mL)
Sample size: $5.25 (25mL)
I like to call this "smelly hippie cream." It.. doesn't smell that good. I might learn to like it, but I don't know. It's a decent sample size at least, though I am 99% sure I'd never buy a full size at $42 (!)
L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil
"Discover Mythic Oil -- the beautifying, nourishing oil for the Cleopatra in you!"
Full size: $26 (125mL)
Sample size: $1.25 (3mL x 2)
Some subscribers received a different sample to replace this, like a Clinique lipstick. I'm rather jealous of them, as I just don't use hair oils that often. Oh well -- I'll give it a shot.
Marc Jacobs Fragrances Sample Pack
"A pouch containing 3 vial samples of Marc Jacobs fragrances: Daisy, Daisy Eau So Fresh and Lola."
Full size: Daisy - $75 (1.7 oz); Daisy Eau So Fresh - $85 (2.5 oz); Lola - $79 (1.7 oz). All prices from Sephora.
Sample size: Daisy - $2.20 (0.05 fl oz), Daisy Eau So Fresh - $1.70 (0.05 fl oz), Lola - $2.32 (0.05 fl oz)
Isn't that pouch the cutest?! It's what I wanted from seeing spoilers, and I'm glad I got it! The samples have spritzers which is nice.
MaskerAide Hydrating Facial Sheet Mask - Pre Party Prep
"MaskerAide is a unique line of super hydrating facial sheet masks created for fabulous lifestyles!"
Full size: $4.99 (1 mask/23g)
Sample size: Full size
This is the second mask I've received from Topbox, the first one in October. I ended up really liking that one, so I don't mind receiving another type! I might use this tomorrow as it's my husband's birthday and we plan to go out to dinner.
Total box value: $17.71
So this month wasn't terribly exciting... I was hoping the regular box would have a full-sized Deborah Lippman polish which people got in last month's regular box.
I've honestly been debating cancelling -- I still think Topbox is a fairly good service and I would recommend it over some of the other Canadian boxes (Glymm, Glossy, Luxebox). It just hasn't been that exciting lately, aside from last month's awesome Benefit box. I have next month paid for so I guess I'll just have to see!
What did you think of this month's box? If you subscribe, did you choose a Privé option?
