So I got my second Topbox. I wasn’t exactly thrilled with it last month and decided to get it again to see if it would be any better this month. So is it? Well maybe it is, because it’s a special box curated by Chatelaine magazine that included a copy of the magazine. However, I subscribe to the magazine and already have a copy of this month’s magazine. Ok, well are the products better this month? Hmm..let’s take a look and see.
Cost: $12 / month
I knew that this month’s packaging would be different and bigger to accommodate the magazine. The tube is beautiful! I really love it and actually can’t stop looking at it!
Here’s what was inside:
Wella Professionals Thermal Image Heat Protection Spray (Full Size)
This is supposed to protect your hair from heat damage while styling. I haven’t used this yet, but like that it’s full size.
A double duty nourishing primer and anti-aging that preps the skin prior to foundation application.
A pretty small sample and when I tried to squeeze some out of the tube it felt like it was near empty and had to really squeeze hard to get any out. I'm not really feeling this product anyway.
Lise Watier Teint Age Control Supreme
A foundation in the shade Neutre. Once opened I was like “Yikes - too dark”. After blending it in it wasn’t too bad, but still a little too dark for my skin tone.
Lancome Paris Tresor Eau de Parfum
No thank you! I hate getting perfume samples and can’t believe I got this. Don’t like the scent and won’t be using this.
So that’s it! The only good thing about Topbox for me this month was the packaging. I liked getting a full size bottle of that Heat Protection Spray, but I have quite a few as it is. I will give this subscription box one more month and that will be it for me. Do you subscribe? Did you like your Topbox this month?
