Have you heard about the trend of buying boxes of samples? A few months ago, a friend told me about it, and how I should review products on my blog. She told me about four boxes : Glamm box, Topbox, Luxe box and Glossybox. I did some research on them, and found that topbox was the most interesting to me. So I decided to give it a try. For 13$/month, you get a box delivered to your door with 4 samples of fancy beauty products.
I subscribed to the waiting list, filled in my beauty profile and waited. I received my first topbox this month and I am quite excited to tell you about it !
1. So let’s start this off with Vasanti Brighten Up Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. The sample was quite satisfying because it was big enough to use a dozen times. The scent was great but what I didn’t appreciate was the texture. It is full of micro-crystals, and it hurts quite a bit when you scrub it around your face. But I must say, your skin feels extremely clean after using it. I’m not sure I would buy it, because of the general feeling, but I do recommend it if you don’t have sensible skin.
2. MaskerAide Detox Diva Mask was probably my favorite item from my box. Formulated with natural oils, it made my skin extremely fresh and hydrated. Exactly what I need for this winter. And the fun thing is, it is a facial sheet mask, so you don’t have to wash it off your face like usual masks. I loved this product so much that I ordered some more to try. Like that All Nighter I am probably gonna try soon!
3. Aveda Invati shampoo and hair conditionner. Well. I was quite deceived with the size of that one. The shampoo sample was so small that I could only use it only once. The conditionner always lasts a little longer. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about here! Well, the smell is kind of heavy, but not bad. It’s just heavy. I wish I could tell you it has magic powers on hair loss (and I definitely NEED one of those products) but I can’t tell you after using it only one time. Too bad !
4. Stila «in the moment» eye shadow palette : ten stunning eye shadow shades that will change your life. Well, maybe not your life, but you will definitely love ‘em. Natural shades for your everyday life along with super cute purple shades to wear out on a friday night, make it a super complete palette. The sample contains enough powder to use several times, and try different combinations. Great quality, great product. I definitely recommend these, if they fit your budget!
I can’t wait to get my November topbox, and to try new products to share here. I hope this was helpful! xx
