Unboxing: Topbox August 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 Bioderma prive box. I’ve really been lucky that I’ve received the prive boxes I’ve requested lately, it really makes this subscription more valuable to me.

I’m sure Bioderma needs no introduction but I know that my personal experience with the brand, specifically the Sensible H20 micelle wasn’t so positive in the beginning. Now, I’m a huge fan of the Micellar water and have wanted to try new items from this line. See my Re-Review of it here.  Seeing that Topbox was offering this as a Prive, this was a perfect opportunity to try a new item as well as get something I knew I already enjoyed. Fotor_147180813617474Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution

This is a favourite of many to remove makeup. I prefer just using my fingers to work the product over my skin, but the directed use is to soak a cotton pad with it. Although I would have loved a bigger size, I’m really happy with this travel size. Fotor_147180820393546Bioderma Sebium AKN Anti-Aging

This is a resurfacing,  purifying and anti-aging treatment that reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles. This is designed for combination to oily skin. Although I have dry skin, I did try a little bit  it felt mattifying and not overly drying which is great. I can definitely use this while the weather is still warm as I’m finding that my skin is breaking out a bit (especially when I spend a whole day in the warm sun). It may be best for me in combination with a hydrating moisturizer. The only thing that I don’t love about this product is the scent. It sort of smells like Nair, which isn’t the most pleasant. Fotor_147180805246624_resizedBONUS: Free Brow Waxing and Design from Caryl Baker Visage

This is a really sweet bonus that Topbox included this month. There is a Caryl Baker Visage near my work and I’ve heard that they are great for eyebrow waxing so this a nice way to try them out. They are located in Ontario and Calgary so I’d be curious if Topboxer’s in other areas received this or a different bonus.

My Thoughts

I’m really happy with this Topbox. As I said above, the prive Topboxes have really made this subscription worth it to me over the last few months. Total Value of this box: $51.28. (I included the bonus item here because I know I’ll use it.)

What did you receive in your Topbox?

Lots of Love,
Dal

  1. How cute is that Bioderma bottle you got! I haven’t tried this one yet but heard so many great things about it. I am still in love with the Simple Micellar wipes so it’s hard to switch things around. Such a great items you received in your Topbox! 🙂

      • I am one of those that stick to one item that works best on me coz once I get breakouts or irritation, it’s hard to cure them then hyperpigmentation is just a pain too. I heard Vichy is great and yes, I love the Simple Micellar wipes as well as the Simple exfoliating wipes a lot. 🙂
