Topbox - September 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. There generally isn't a theme of the month either, but it's always a great surprise.

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 September.

And now, what I got for September.
I decided to go with a regular topbox. There was nothing in the Prive's that were really jumping out to me.

AvryBeauty - Chamomile Gloves
Waterless manicure gloves pre-filled with soothing shea butter which is naturally rich in vitamins A, E, and F.
1 pair of gloves retail price is $1.38, which makes these two worth $2.76

IBY Beauty - Bubbly Highlighter
Wear this luminous peachy highlighter alone or layered together with your favourite blush for a sexy and healthy glow.
1.8g is full size and the retail price is $14.98 (According to Topbox - more on that below)

Glamglow - Youthmud Tinglexfoliant Treatment
Youthmud provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer resulting in immediate camera-ready glowing skin.
Full size is 50g and retails for $69. Making this 15g sample worth $20.70

Caudalie - Vinoperfect Radiance Serum Complexion Enhancing
Use morning and evening, on the face, neck and decollete, before applying your regular cream. Tip: can also be used before sunscreen application for luminous and even looking skin.
Full size is 30mL and retails for $89. This 10mL sample is worth $29.66.

Overall, this Topbox is strong on the skincare side. Which is always fine by me. This month has a great value for me, considering it's less than $14 a month. I'm in need of a new serum, so the caudalie is welcomed. And I enjoy the Glamglow tinglexfoliate mask. I will be passing on the highlighter just because it looks too dark for me, and I will be passing one pair of the gloves to a friend.

I will say Topbox claims the highlighter is $14.98, but when you go onto IBY's website, they have the value at only $5, for the exact same size.
