Topbox - December 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 able to pick a prive box, or a regular box. Usually I will post the prive choices we were given, but I've decided to stop taking screenshots of our options. A lot of them were getting repeated through the months. I decided to choose a regular box for December, and this is what I received.

As you can see, this month we received something from every "beauty" category - hair, nails, skincare, and makeup!

Wella Professionals - EIMI Dry Shampoo
Shake me, spray me, style me. Apply evenly on dry hair, leave in and brush through. Full size is 120g and is sold for $19.99 online at This deluxe sample is 39.9g which makes it worth about $6.66

Dry shampoo is always welcomed. These travel sizes are perfect for taking on vacations or weekends away. I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but I'm hoping it's good!

Nena - Clay Mask
Shake well before using. After cleansing, apply clay evenly over the entire face, avoiding eyes and mouth. Leave until dried. Wash off completely with cold or warm water. Full size is 120g and is $35 available at This sample size is 30g, making this worth about $8.75.

Clay masks are a nice way to pamper yourself. I also haven't tried this out yet, but will definitely do a separate review on this!

Morgan Taylor - Professional Nail Lacquer in Rebel With A Cause
It's inside what counts. Inspired by luminous pearls, raw gems, semi-precious stones, glimmering silvers and radiant gold all drawn from the earth. All pigments are saturated, pure and finely milled for luminous metallics, never seen before shimmers, decadent cremes, stunning sheers, and more glistening glitters. This is a full size bottle, and retails for $15.83. 

The colour I received was Rebel With A Cause, and it's so pretty! It's a dark purple with a purple shimmer. But the shimmer kind of shifts to a lighter purple, blue, and red. So hard to describe. But it's so pretty! My only complaint is that it doesn't stay very long on the nails without chipping. Maybe that's an issue that can be fixed with a better topcoat.

MAC Cosmetics - In Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara
A mascara with a large molded brush that creates volume and curl. Full size is 13mL and sells for $29.37

I actually just finished a tube of this in my January empties post. You can see it here. I wasn't overly impressed, it was just an average mascara. Good to have on hand for travelling for sure.

Overall, this was just an okay bag. Nothing really wowed me, but all practical items that will get used. The value is definitely there though, considering it's only $12 a month!
