Unboxing Topbox, October 2016

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items
Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for a surprise box.

Ciate London  Paint Pot in Hidden Gem

When I first unwrapped this I wasn’t the most excited about the colour but after applying it on my nails I fell in love with it. The name is so befitting because this really is a hidden gem. I’m not sure if it’s everyone’s taste, but for me it’s not too flashy and I actually like the mustard tone. I think it would really look nice with a gold glitter on top. Out of the all the nail polishes I’ve received in boxes lately this is one I actually want to wear.

Dr. Roebuck’s PURE 

I’m really intrigued to try this moisturizer. This Australian based brand was started by two physician parents who developed Dr. Roebuck’s PURE to treat Eczema in their identical twin daughters. Today, the daughters continue to expand the line. As someone with really dry skin and mild eczema this story really touched me. This is a hypoallergenic fragrance-free, day and night cream for all skin types. It works best when a thick layer is applied, your skin will absorb the cream in a matter of minutes.

Harvey Prince Organics Keravegan Repairing & Hydrating Masque

This is a 100% formaldehyde-free hair smoothing therapy made with organic argan, coconut and sweet almond oils, blended with shea butter, papaya, lemon and mandarin extracts. This has a sugary scent with slight citrus notes, I really love this smell.

Eyeko London FAT Eye Stick in Smoke

Another UK brand! Maybe that was Topbox’s theme this month, haha! This eyeshadow stick glides on and can be blended out for a really nice smokey look. It’s a gorgeous dark grey with silver glitter specks. I was trying to find this on Eyeko’s website and didn’t see it there so I think it might actually be discontinued and replaced with their water proof me and my shadow sticks. I did email Eyeko for more info and I’m awaiting a reply. I found this on beautybay.com so that I could include a price.

My Thoughts

I love when I receive well rounded boxes and I definitely got it here. I got skincare, haircare, a nail polish I’ll actually wear and a makeup item. It’s strange because although Topbox usually is low in total value money-wise, I find that I actually find use for each item I get. Total Value: $33.99

Did you receive Topbox this month? What do you think of the box?

Lots of Love,

Dal
