like this), but I have so many already, I opted for the environmentally friendly option offered by Topbox. Instead of the cardboard tube, the products come inside a pretty organza pouch.
I really don't need more nail polish, but I love this colour! It's going to be my pedi colour of choice for Fall.
Featured in the September issue of Marie Claire, this sample was also included in the August US Birchbox. I like dry shampoo, especially for travel so this sample size is perfect. I'm a little unclear on the size/pricing for this product. On the can, the volume is listed as net weight in ounces and grams, however the Topbox pricing is based on a liquid measure of milliliters. A 1oz travel size is 43.87ml, which means the 0.75oz sample size received is the equivalent of 30ml. Topbox claims a 30ml can is worth $11, but it's probably the 1oz can that retails for that much. A full size can is 5.3oz, and worth $29 (although you can find it much cheaper through Amazon). Based on that, this sample size is only worth $4.10.
This is the second Bioderma product I've received from Topbox and so far I'm enjoying the brand. This facial cleanser gently cleanses and purifies the skin without drying. It is paraben free, soap free, and hypoallergenic. A full size is 200ml for $19.99.
This brightening cream is similar to Benefit's Lemon-Aid. The card says plus Illumalift under eyes, on the eyelinds, around nasal folds and anywhere you have deep lines or dark areas. I tried it on my under eye circles and there was a definite improvement. A full size is 3.5g for $33. Sample size is estimated. If you are interested in this product, you can save 33% off your purchase at Illumalift. Use promo code TOPBOX593057 at checkout.
The September Topbox contained four products, valued at approximately $25.30. I love the nail polish colour and I'm enjoying the results of the Illumalift. I haven't tried the Amika Dry Shampoo yet but I've read good things about it and in general, I like dry shampoos, so this product is a hit. I have no feelings about the Bioderma cleanser. It's a cleanser and I will use it. Overall it's a decent month for Topbox. I have no complaints.
What do you think of the September Topbox?
