This month’s Topbox was probably the first for a lot of people who had signed up for the infamous waitlist months ago, but I have to say that this month’s was probably the first that I was not too thrilled with which I hate saying! There was a good selection of brands in this month’s box and there was actually a product that I was about to buy online, but the arrival of this month’s Topbox stopped me just in time!
Thoughts: I do like Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo as well as their hand cream so I am excited to try a new product from them. The only thing is that the samples are pretty small…10mL is not a lot when you have longer hair. Oh well, I guess it means two easy empties!
Full size: 200mL/$27.00 (Both shampoo and conditioner)
I received: 10mL/$1.35 x 2 = $2.70
Thoughts: This was the item I was going to order on the MaskerAide site, but I wasn’t sure how these would compare with my favourite Asian sheet masks so I was VERY happy to receive one! I am a sheet mask junkie and I would use one every week if I could, but they are expensive for one time usage.
Full size: 1 mask/$4.99
I received: *FULL SIZE*
Thoughts: I think this is a cute way to present the palette as a sample because I know that if Urban Decay handed out Naked samples like these, people would love them! The only reason I’m not more excited about this sample is because I’m actually receiving all three samples of each Stila palette with a Sephora order I just placed so I will have two of these In The Garden palettes!
Full size: 14g/$50.00
I received: No clue, maybe I have 1g/$0.28?
Thoughts: I have a good number of eye primers now, but I have not tried one from Stila and this looks like a good product and in a good sample size too. Let’s see how it compares to Urban Decay’s Primer Potion!
Full size: 0.11oz/$26.00
I received: 0.07oz/$16.55
Total Value of Topbox: $24.52
If it weren’t for the Stila Prime Pot, this month’s Topbox would most likely not have been much more than the $10 monthly fee. Even though this wasn’t the best Topbox, they have been consistently amazing for more than a year straight so I am optimistic for the upcoming months!
