Topbox - October 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 October.
 

 There were a lot of choices this month!

So although there were a ton of prive choices this month, I decided to stick with a regular Topbox. This is what I got in that box. 

 As always, I chose the organza bag.


Redken - Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender (Brown)
Shake well and spray evenly into hair. Brush through to remove any excess. Blast dry using fingers for tousled texture or a round brush for volume. Works best on hair that hasn't been freshly shampooed. 

I'm guessing this is like a dry shampoo? But its coloured brown. I'm a little afraid to use this right now just because I have some blonde in my hair. I'm not sure if I will keep it or pass it along.

Doucce - Punk Volumizer Mascara
Define lashes one by one, adding extreme volume and thickness to your lashes. Instantly creates dramatically full and seductive lashes for an audacious false-look effect. 

I don't need any more mascara, but whats one more? Right? I haven't tried this out yet but I will be using it once another mascara is finished. I'll post the results then.

Elizabeth Arden - New Formula Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum
Pure. Potent. Precise. Triple the anti-aging power for visibly firmer, smoother, healthy-looking skin. 

I've never used serum in capsules before. Not the most exciting but I'll give them a go. Fingers crossed they are good!

Biotherm - Life Plankton Essence
Apply as the step 0 of your beauty routine. Apply 4-5 drops on a clean face. In only 8 days, watch your skin transform and rediscover the newborn skin you deserve.

Well, that all just sounds so creepy. My skin is pretty smooth as it is, so I'm not sure how much smoother it can feel, but I'll use this. 

Overall, this isn't an exciting bag. I'm started to get a little disappointed with Topbox, but it's just so cheap I can't seem to give it up. I will use everything except for the dry shampoo.
