I'm not gonna lie. Summer was too good to sit in front of computer.....
For all the Topboxes that I received during the summer months, this is my favorite one!
I have to say that often times I prefer the regular boxes than the Privé boxes. Not only the regular boxes usually have higher value, I also like the surprise factor!
The July regular box that I received contains:
- Trind North America Nail Repair Natural Nail Strengthener 9ml value $19.95 (this is a full size item)
- Jouviance First Defence Antioxidant Emulsion 15ml value$15 (full size 50ml $50)
- The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer 0.57g value about $1.6 (full size 8.5g $24)
- BareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara 1.5ml value $3.00 (full size 10ml $18)
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
This honey-hued luminizer gives very subtle glow which is perfect for my skin tone (light to medium) and everyday no makeup makeup . I use it under brow bones, on top of cheek bones, and on the tip of my nose. I think this sample will last me a long time!
Trind North America Nail Repair Natural Nailstrengthener
Trind is a nail care brand from Netherlands. This product gives a thick glossy clear coat. I've been using it as a clear nail polish for over a week. Not sure if this product strengthens my nails, but it certainly makes my nails feel harder and last more than two days.
Jouviance First Defence Antioxidant Emulsion
Need a 2nd try...
This is a very light textured lotion. I used it on a very hot humid evening (humidex 40 C) and it was a bit tacky on my skin. I will try it again on a cooler day.
BareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
Not waterproof! End of the story.
Overall this box has very good value and combination of categories (1 skin care, 1 nail care, 2 makeups). The total value of this month's box is $39.55. Despite the fact that the mascara does not work for me at all, the other 3 samples are in fairly generous size (one full size item).
Topbox is a Canadian subscription service that sends four deluxe samples from top beauty brands each month at $12 per month, plus tax.
