TopBox November 2014

Topbox is a Canadian beauty subscription that ships you 4 samples every month.  The shipping is free, which is nice, but there is tax based upon your province.  This still makes it one of the cheapest boxes out there at $12 per month.  Topbox normally comes is a cardboard container but you can chose to receive your products in a reusable organza bag for even less waste.

It’s a pretty easy mailer to spot.

I haven’t yet figured out what to do with the bags I get but they may just organize my makeup.  I think they’ll be easier to reuse then a cardboard tube, which is the other packaging option.

The ever helpful info card and this months additional cards.  Ten dollars off a $30 cosmetic purchase a London Drugs and a reminder to follow @Benefitcanada on Instagram for a chance to win the Benefit Advent Calendar.

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara-4mL $12.00

I think the package of this mascara is so cool!  I don’t know that it will allow me to use more of the mascara but it’s definitely different. I never complain to get more mascara.

LA Splash Nail Splash in Blowfish-10mL $5.98

This is super pink.  I tested it on one nail and got great coverage out of just one coat so I think this will be a good polish.  I’m not too sure that hot pink is a good colour for the Holiday season but maybe just toes for now.

UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment- 9mL $1.20

This magic spray is supposed help to repair dry and damaged hair, shine and frizz control, Heat protection, silkiness and smoothness, hair colour protection, easier brushing and ironing, incredible detangling, ling lasting hairstyle, split end prevention, and add body.  It’s only available in salons and can be used on wet or dry hair.  If it really does do all of those things it’s totally worth the $19.95 full size price.  For sure giving this a go.

Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15-Hour Primer-1.2g $2.81

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I’m in love with primers right now.  This one is a bit different in that it’s a stick application instead of a cream. I know some other people were a bit disappointed in this because there had been an email sent out that if Benefit got to a certain number of likes we would be getting a Benefit product this month, but it kinda was misleading in that it seemed like it would be a bonus item not a regular item. .   I’m happy either way and like Benefit products so am glad for it.

This months total bag value was $21.99. I think that’s pretty good for what I paid for the bag.  The only slight negative I could come up with is that it’s now two months in a row that I received a nail polish, though not the same brand or colour, and also a Benefit product two months in a row.  As I said earlier I like Benefit Cosmetics so it’s not a huge deal but since I want to try as many different products as possible through these boxes a month in between might lessen my judgement.
