Unboxing: Topbox July 2016

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items
Topbox is a Canadian monthly subscription service that introduces customers to beauty items. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box in which all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for the Curl Keeper Prive Box.Fotor_146910204249622_resizedI wanted a change from my usual bags of makeup and skincare so when I saw this specifically for hair I wanted to get it.

What I Received;

1.Leave-In Conditioner

2 x 20 mL: $15.00

After shampooing you add this to your hair and get out of the shower, you don’t need to rinse. It isย for very frizzy hair (check!) or high humidity (check!). I actually tried this after my shower and thought it was OK. Maybe it works best with the shampoo but I found that it made my hair feel drier. I’m going to give this another try and see if using it after my conditioner works better.

2.Styling Cream

Full Size: $11.99 (100 mL): $7.19 (2 x30 mL)

This is tames textured hair and create well defined curls. I must admit, I’M IN LOVE WITH THIS!! Finally something that I can wear in my hair that defines my curly/wavey hair without feeling crunchy or stiff! I put this on when my hair was dry and it immediately defined my curls and made my hair super shiny! I’m so happy I received two of these to use.

3. Gel

Full Size: $9.99 (100 mL): $3.00 (30 mL)

This has panthenol (moisturizing provitamin) to give the ultimate hold w/out flakiness or crispness. If this is anywhere as good as the styling cream I know I will love it!

4. Belle Pierre Gel Lip Liner

Full Size: $18.00, this is a full size item

This actually came in as a bonus in the bag. The isย made with 100% minerals and botanical extracts. It’s a really nice cinnamon colour that would look good under a lot of my nude lipsticks. I really like how this glides on and is super pigmented.

My Thoughts

I’m pretty happy with the items in this month’s bag mostly because I chose this prive box. Lately I’ve liked getting the Prive boxes as opposed to the surprises because it’ll feature brands I’m really excited to try. The value of bag is pretty low, but for items I’ll actually use I think it’s still OK.

Total Value: $43.19 (including the bonus item)

What are your thoughts on Topbox this month?

Lots of Luv,

    • I was really curious about this brand so I definitely knew I wanted to try it when I saw the box! So far, I’m in love with the cream, I haven’t tried the gel yet and wasn’t too thrilled with leave-in conditioner. It’s pretty reasonably priced too!
