Price: $12.00 CAD (plus taxes, free shipping),

Number of Items: 4 – 5

My favourite monthly subscription box is Topbox, I use and love all the items that I’m sent. Topbox is a Canadian monthly subscription that introduces customers to make-up, skin care, hair care and other neat things, I’ve actually received tea in this box before. Every month, subscribers are also given the opportunity to choose a Prive box in which a particular brand is showcased exclusively and all the samples come from one Brand (I’ve received Benefit, Dermalogica and Neostrata before).

This month I opted for the Prive Box presented by Aveda. I couldn’t wait to get this box in the mail because I’ve heard good things about Aveda and wanted to try their products. I’ll break down what I got into hair care and body care.

Hair Care

20150521_200746_resized

-invati scalp revitalizer (10mL) ~$7.50                  –invati exfoliating shampoo (10mL) ~$2.40                

-invati thickening conditioner (10mL) ~$2.38       –thickening tonic (10mL) ~$3.62 

I don’t have thinning hair, but that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t want to make my hair as thick as possible. The smell is very herbally, I thought I got a hint of lavender but I also read there was ginseng and turmeric so I guess its just earthy, which isn’t terrible, I just wish it had a fresh smell like green tea.

Body Care

20150521_200549_resized-stress-fix creme cleansing oil (10mL) ~$1.70        –stress-fix body lotion (25mL) ~$6.00            

-hand relief night renewal serum (3mL) ~$4.30

The smell of these products is very similar to that of the hair care products, it’s very earthy. I love body lotions so I’m very happy that the stress-fix body lotion was the largest sample size in the box. I immediately gave the hand relief lotion to my sister, I love hand creams but because she suffers from dryer hands than myself so I thought she was a perfect tester.

Thoughts

The total value of all the samples is approximately $27.00, double the cost of my box. I’m really excited to try all of these products, although I was hoping the smell would be a little bit fresher. Crossing my fingers that my hair is healthier and I’m feeling a bit more stress-relieved!
