Topbox - July 2017

Topbox is probably the most affordable subscription service that I have ever subscribed to. It's only $12 a month, which means in Ontario it only comes to $13.56 after taxes. Super affordable. Especially for those who aren't looking to spend too much, while getting to try new brands. They usually only send sample sized products, and a lot of skincare. So if you're looking for mostly makeup, or full size items, I'd recommend Boxycharm instead. Or even Ipsy. There generally isn't a theme of the month either.

Each month we are given the opportunity to wish for a prive box. What that is, is a box featuring a specific brand. First let's take a look at what our prive options were for July.


I like that for this month, they included the value of the prives. Usually they don't do that!

This month I decided to try my luck at a prive box. There were a couple I was interested in like Eyeko #2, and Caudalie. So let's see what I got!

I got Eyeko Prive Topbox #2!

Eyeko - Black Magic Mascara
I'm not going to go into full detail about the mascara, just because I did a full review on it here. I really like this mascara, it lasts all day, I have no issues of it flaking or rubbing off. It is a little difficult to remove, but as long as you use a makeup remover, and then an oil cleanser, it shouldn't be too tough!

Eyeko - Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner 
I was hoping that this liquid eyeliner would be a brush tip and not a felt tip pen, but it's felt. Either way, I'm excited to try it out.

The lines can be made thicker or thinner, depending on your mood. You can never have enough black liquid liner, so I can't wait to give this a go.

Garnier - SkinActive Moisture Bomb - Dry Skin Gel Cream
This was just a little complementary sample that I think everyone received in their Topbox for the month. I wasn't always the biggest fan of gel creams, just because I don't find them hydrating enough for my dry skin, but I have grown to love them... especially wearing under makeup. This one does have a strong fragrance, so if you're sensitive to those, you wouldn't like this. But it works well under makeup, and I have no issues with it pilling. I dislike the scent, so I wouldn't repurchase a full size of this in the future.
