Topbox March 2013 — Aveda

For March’s Topbox, we got to pick between Aveda, Pure + Simple, or I think there might have been one other brand, but I can’t really remember. If we decided to not place a Privé on our wishlist or if we were not randomly selected to receive the Privé box we wish for, we would receive the regular March box. I picked Aveda because the Pure + Simple boxes only had two items, although I think they were full-size (at least one of them was a full-sized item). For the Aveda box we were able to choose whether it’s aimed for curly hair or straight hair. I chose straight.

Luxebox Winter 2012

For the winter Luxebox they placed all the items inside a drawstring bag inside the box instead of just placing it into the box and wrapping it up!

They’ve been impressing me with the Fall box and this Winter box ::^^::.

[[ H20 Hydration provides calming relief from the day’s stress and great anti-aging benefits. This olive based moisturizer mimics the skin’s own barrier, allowing its active ingredients to penetrate deeply.

With summer over, you may have packed away your sunscreen with your beach bag but that is not where it belongs! It belongs on your bathroom counter where you can apply it every morning. While the UVB Burning Rays may be less intense in the fall through to the spring, the UVA Aging Rays are consistent all year round- rain or shine. About 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by the sun- and protecting against daily exposure is just as important as protecting yourself on the beach. Worse- sun damage is believed to cause 90% of non-melanoma skin cancer and 65% of melanomas and most are potentially preventable.

This Every Morning Sun Whip SPF 25 gives you excellent UVB and UVA protection with its 15% zinc oxide and 7.5% encapsulated octinoxate. It’s also aesthetically elegant with its cashmere matte finish and goes beautifully under your make-up. ]]
