Topbox October 2012

A bunch of people were able to get off the Topbox waitlist for the October box recently. I was one of them and I was really excited since Topbox was always touted as one of the best with the lowest price when it comes to the beauty boxes available in Canada. Just a note though, they are also raising their price from $10 to $12 for everyone.



Aveda // Invati

[[ Thicker, fuller hair is yours with 97% naturally derived Invati solution for thinning hair. ]]
Full Size: 200mL/$27 || Received: (10mL x 2) 20mL/$5.40
I’m actually a bit curious about this. I don’t think I have thinning hair, but anything that can help make my hair thicker and fuller is good to me.

MaskerAide // Hydrating Facial Sheet Masks

[[ MaskerAide is a unique line of super hydrating facial sheet masks created for fabulous lifestyles! ]]
Full Size: 1 mask/$4.99 || Received: 1 mask/$4.99 (FULL SIZED)
Always love sheet masks, but I’ve only used Asian brands for sheet masks. I saw a lot of raves from others on the web though so we’ll see!

Stila // In The Moment Eyeshadow Palette

[[ A beautiful collection of Stila’s award-winning eye shadows. ]]
Full Size: 14g/$50 || Received: ??
I have to say that even though I was happy that they included Stila in this box, it’s just so small. I honestly wonder how many uses I can get out of it to try it out. Will I get anything left after I do swatches for the blog? haha ::swirl::.

Vasanti // BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

[[ Dramatically improve your skin’s texture to reveal softer, brighter and younger looking skin! ]]
Full Size: 120mL/$34 || Received: 20mL/$5.67

The box was okay. I think there were complaints about it and I myself wasn’t particularly wow’ed by anything either. Just because I’ve been on the waiting list since February so I expected a lot out of this box. It also didn’t seem like these were items that I wouldn’t get from the other boxes. Maybe except Stila, but the sample didn’t seem that exciting. Include a pencil liner or something instead of tiny swatches? I think the value of this box is lower than any other ones I’ve received…..?
