Topbox - November 2016

Ah, I'm a little upset. I wrote a pretty big post about Topbox for November, and somehow my post was deleted and replaced with another review. Even going in and trying to edit it, or post it and see if it somehow would switch back, didn't work. So here I am, re-writing this post.

Enough of the rant. Let's look at the Prive choices for November. Prive boxes are sets you can "wish" for, and either you will receive that specific kit, or a normal Topbox.

Nova Scotia Fisherman Prive Topbox - includes 3 mini size (28g) Sea Salt Soap Bars, and 1 (0.35oz) Xtreme Skin Care Rescue Balm Body Balm.

Novex Prive Box - includes: 2 (100g) deluxe samples of Brazilian Keratin Deep Conditioning Hair Masks and 1 (110g) deluxe sample of the Bamboo Sprout Leave in Conditioner.

Essie Prive Topbox - includes 4 (mini 5mL) bottles of their nail lacquer. Comes in the shades Stones n Roses, Berried Treasures, Perennial Chic and Coconut Cove.

Illumalift Prive Topbox - includes 2 (sample size) Brightening Cream

O.R.G Skincare Prive Topbox - includes 4 (5mL) deluxe samples of the Mineral Peel Face with Brightening Agents.

Holiday Fragrance Prive Topbox - includes 8 sample size fragrance samples. Fragrances are: Elizabeth Arden - Always Red Femme Eau de Toilette. One Direction - Our Moment. Roberto Cavalli - Just Cavalli Eau de Toilette Spray for Women. Boucheron - Boucheron Eau de Parfum. Azzaro - Azzaro Pour Homme Eau de Toilette. Salvatore Ferragamo - Uomo Eau de Toilette Pour Homme. Clean - Clean for Men Black Leather. Clean - Clean for Men White Vetiver.

I decided not to wish for a prive box this month because nothing really stood out to me. I'm sick of seeing Novex in this box, and I'm not really a fan of the scent of the Nova Scotia Fisherment products. The only one that I was a little interested in was the Essie polish Topbox, but I have so much nail polish already that I don't really want to add more. So, I wished for the regular Topbox.

As always, I picked the organza bag for it to come in. I like the cardboard tubes they send, but they are so bulky and I never know what to do with them afterwards, so I feel the organza bags are a better choice. Plus I can reuse them, or gift them.

There is what's inside! I can already tell you that I'm a little meh over the whole thing. But we'll get a closer look and some descriptions to go along with the pictures.

Bella Aura Skincare - Antioxidant Booster

Our Multi-Functional Booster is a powerful detox to protect against the negative environmental elements that your skin comes in contact with throughout the day. It contains our Kamilah blend combined with breakthrough technology of the active Swiss botanical ingredients.

I think out of everything I was sent, this seems the most interesting. So we'll see how it does on my skin.

Novex - Bamboo Sprout Leave in Conditioner
Novex Bamboo Sprout Leave-In Conditioner designed to naturally moisturize the strands, treat and leave the hair nourished and full of life. Its formula counts with the Bamboo Sprout, responsible to provide all the strength and growth that your hair needs, leaving it treated, nourished and with a glossy shine.

As I mentioned above, I'm kind of sick of seeing Novex in these boxes. I'm sure my hair will love a leave in conditioner, but expand your brands a little. Also, this was a prive box choice. I'm assuming nobody picked it and thats why everyone got it in their regular topbox.

Smashbox - Full Exposure Mascara
Inspired by Smashbox's on-set technique of layering fiber mascara over volumizing mascara for the biggest, longest lashes on camera, Full Exposure Mascara creates a 104% increase in lash volume for scene-stealing lashes at every angle without smudging, clumping, or flaking.

I think out of all the mascaras I have tried, this one has never made an appearance. I'll give it a shot but again, not a very exciting product.

China Glaze - Nail Lacquer in Heroine Chic
These unique lacquers contain China Clay as a nail hardener, the same material that gives porcelain its shiny finish.

I like China Glaze nail polishes, but I'm not too sure about this shade.

It's kind of like a gun metal gray, but has a little bit of purple in there. And there is red glitter. Something I wouldn't typically wear. I haven't decided if I will pass it on, or keep it in. I just have so much nail polish.

Like I said above, I didn't find this bag to be very exciting this month. And I'm considering just getting my last bag for December and cancelling for the New Year. I really need to focus on a lot of the stuff I have accumulated, and the pile just kieeps getting bigger and bigger. Also, a no buy for the New Year sounds like a great idea because holiday spending is just crazy!
