Topbox Review - September 2013 - Beauty Subscription Box
What is it? TopboxThe September Topbox was curated with the assistance of the Chatelaine Editors. The box promised to include on of Chatelaine's top beauty picks plus 3 additional samples. A copy of the September edition of Chatelaine magazine would also be included.
How Much? $12 per month, shipping included
What’s in it? 4 deluxe beauty samples
The tube is much larger this month to accommodate the magazine. I love the design of the tube wrap. I will find a way to re-use this for sure!
The first look wasn't the norm for Topbox. Usually the products are wrapped together in tissue paper. These ones were just stuffed into the tube so I had to dump everything out. At first I couldn't find the product card but reader Sher suggested I check the magazine and there I found it, tucked into the pages.
September 2013 issue Chatelaine Magazine ($5)
Benefit - The Porefessional (0.1oz/3ml, $4.64)
I received one of these in my May Topbox. This is the "Chatelaine Pick" in my box.
Redken Diamond Oil Shampoo (1.7oz/50ml, $3.80) and Conditioner (1oz/30ml, $2.40)
These are brand new products. You can read more about them here.
Zyderma HS - Antimicrobial Skin Cleanser (1oz, $25)
This is another new product. It's a cleanser for acne prone skin and has a lot of other benefits as well. Read about it here.
Cover FX Matte Setting Powder in Light (4.5g/0.16oz, $16)
This is a great sample size. It's half the size of the full size product. I love the Mirabella setting powder I received from Ipsy a few months ago, so I'm glad I have a replacement. And it's the right shade!
Killer Queen by Katy Perry Eau de Parfum (0.05oz/1.5ml, $1.95)
This is another newly released product and was included as a bonus item. Oddly enough, I don't mind it. It has fruity scents, floral scents, and woodsy scents mixed together. The card calls it "floriental".
The September Topbox contained 6 different products plus a magazine! The value of everything is approximately $55! It's an amazing value for Topbox. I'm a little confused with this box though. The promo said the box would include one of Chatelaine's top beauty picks. The September issue of Chateline lists the top 100 beauty picks for 2013. I searched through those pages high and low but not one single item in my box was included in the top 100. Even though the Benefit Porefessional is listed as a Chateliane Pick, it's not listed in the magazine. Regardless of this, I am happy with this month's box. I received three brand new products to try out! I'm looking forward to more exciting brands and new products next month.
