Cosmetics Magazine Topbox Review – October 2013

Cosmetics Magazine Topbox Review - October 2013

After a slight delay my Cosmetics Magazine Topbox arrived. A few days before my box was shipped I received an email saying some of the samples were damaged and they were waiting for replacements. Then the day it was shipped another email was sent and they informed me that due to a shortage of the Biotherm product, I was going to receive two full size products. Cool, I appreciate the advance notice. So, this month I opted to upgrade to the Cosmetics Magazine Topbox. Usually I’m not tempted to switch or upgrade my Topbox, but this looked too good to pass up and for only $5 more I couldn’t resist.

Cost: $12 / month + Free Shipping

The tube the products came in this month is even bigger than the Chatelaine one from last month!

Shiseido Hydro-Nourishing Softener
Full Size - $18 / 75 ml

Shiseido Hydro-Nourishing Softener

A dual-action hydrating and exfoliating lotion that transforms the skin’s texture in an instant. Improves, clarity, radiance and moisture retention. I was lucky to get two full-size bottles! Probably because of the shortage of some of the other products that were suppose to be in the box, so they threw in an extra bottle to make up for it. I am so, so happy to get this product! I found it did make my skin noticeably softer and I like that it’s a liquid and not some oily lotion. Thank you Topbox!

Bioderma Sebium Global
$3.60 / 5 ml

Bioderma Sebium Global

Restores the balance of your skin, an intense purifying dermatological treatment for acne-prone skin with severe blemishes. I don’t know what’s been going on with my skin lately, but I could definitely use this. A very small sample, but I hope it helps with the issues I’ve been having on my forehead.

Live Clean Fresh face Refreshing Facial Wipes
Full Size - $10 / 30 wipes

Live Clean Fresh face Refreshing Facial Wipes

Yes! A full pack of facial wipes - score! I haven’t tried Live Clean's wipes before, but I have no doubt they’re great. Alcohol and oil-free, they're infused with protective vitamin C, while aloe vera and cucumber reveal your skin’s natural glow.

Biotherm Skin Vivo Nuit
$22.50 / 15 ml

Biotherm Skin Vivo Nuit

This is some serious night cream. It claims it is the 1st reversive anti-aging overnight care to act on both DNA + GENES. Thanks to a unique and patented association of Pure Thermal Plankton and Reversol SV. DNA is protected & the "cellular life gene" is reactivated to stimulate the birth of new, healthy cells. I’m very interested to see if I notice any difference in my skin. Time will tell...

Bio-Oil
Full Size - $12 / 60 ml

Bio-Oil

This is supposed to help improve the appearance of of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. I’ve always wanted to try this product since I’ve heard it’s good for many things and can be used on the face and body. Another product I’m happy to get.

B. Kamins Brightening Mask
$25 / 15 g

B. Kamins Brightening Mask

A unique brightening mask that helps to hydrate, revitalize, nourish and condition complexions. Helps plump up skin to help fight fine lines and improve skin elasticity. Helps lighten keratoses and brown spots and even out skin tone. Very excited to try this too! I’ve been paying more attention to preventing as much as possible the signs of aging, so the more anti-aging products I get the better!

Bio Beaute Cleansing Milk w/ Orange Water & Bio Beaute Toning Exfoliating w/ Redcurrant Pulp
Samples

Bio Beaute Cleansing Milk w/ Orange Water & Bio Beaute Toning Exfoliating w/ Redcurrant Pulp

I like the idea of the cleansing milk and exfoliating your body is always a must.

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask
1 mask

Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask

I already have a sample of this that I have yet to use. It’s hard for me to use masks, I just never make time for it.

L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect BB Cream
Sample

L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect BB Cream

I LOVED this month’s Topbox! It is everything I wanted and more! The value I estimated is over $109!!! That is insane! This is probably one of the highest valued boxes I've ever received from any subscription box! I’m really glad it was more focused on skincare. I have far too much makeup, so getting to try these skincare products is a real treat for me! Upgrading to the Cosmetics Magazine Topbox has totally increased my satisfaction with Topbox and I will certainly continue my subscription. I really enjoy having the choice to select a Prive Box or an Upgrade Box, of course if none of them interest you, you can stick with the regular box and be surprised. Which Topbox to did you get this month? What do you think of this subscription box?
