Topbox August Edition

I am super excited for the August Topbox because I have been stalking looking at their facebook page and I was seeing alot of comments of people loving their box this month so I was excited to find out what I got.

Sadly this was another month where Canada Post messed up and I ended up getting my box much later then expected. You are probably noticing that I am posting this later then normal as well but that was because Topbox was a few days late in sending them out (which I believe is a first for them) because they were waiting for a sample.

As you can see I went with the traditional box just because I like it much more then the recycled one and it looks much prettier sitting on my shelf. These make great containers to put little things in on your dresser or shelf.

I noticed right away when I picked up this tube that it was heavier then normal. I have to say that as soon as I brought it in I tore into this box because I was so curious to see what I got.

This is what greeted me right away. Isn’t this great? I have heard of Nexxus before but never used it so I was curious to see what they sent.

The bonus item was this shampoo and conditioner from Nexxus (I love when companies send both because this way you truly get a feel for what the product will do to your hair.) The shampoo is Therappe luxurious hydrating (89ml) and the conditioner is Humectress ultimate hydrating (89ml). I really like the smell of these and can’t wait to try them out.

Cost of Sample: Shampoo $2.22 (full size is 400ml for $9.99)  Conditioner is $3.34 (full size is 400ml for $14.99) = $5.56

I recently had the chance to try a Chloe perfume and I really liked it and I think this is a great alternative to perfume. I really like this light scent and I can see me wearing on days I don’t want to wear a perfume. When I put some on I instantly thought this is a great summer scent and I am sure it will come in handy when its -40 and you need that list boost of summer feeling.

Cost of Sample: $9 for 30ml (full size is 200ml for $60)

I am slowly building up my brush collection and its nice to get another one. This one is from Expression and its a round crease brush. I like the feel of it, it was soft and it seems well made and will be quite useful. I know this will be used alot and can’t wait to start using this.

Cost of Sample: $16 This is actually a full size product.

This is a new to me product its called Pink Wipes and its biodegradable, paraben free and hypoallergenic pH balanced feminine wipe. Hmm not sure how I feel about this but I will try it out just the same.

Cost of Sample: $0.80 (full size is $12 for 15 wipes)

Another new to me product is this Kellett Skincare and its an clarifying acne treatment. I have a tendency to break out (around the chin area) so this is perfect and I actually have a little bit starting so I have started to use it. I will keep you posted on this and let you know how it works. I like the packaging of this.

Cost of Sample: $15 (full size is $75 for 50ml)

I have to say at first I was like oh no another perfume sample but once I opened the box I was like this is too cute. I love the bottle. Isn’t that butterfly bottle topper to cute? I love the smell of this and I know I will be wearing this all the time. Its made with jasmine and juicy red berries.

This is actually the full size bottle on the left isn’t it too cute? I have actually put it on my wishlist for Christmas. I love the scent. This could possibly be my next favorite perfume.

Cost of Sample: $2.53 (full size is $79 for 50ml or $105 for 100ml)

Total Sample Value: $48.89  and I paid $10 + tax for this box so as you can see value wise,  the box paid for itself and these are actually products I will be using and are using and I do consider these deluxe samples.

I am always impressed with Topbox and enjoy this box. What did you get this month?

I also wanted to mention that starting September I will be making vlogs of my beauty box unboxings. So these posts will include the vlog, pictures and the basic above post. Let me know what you think about that.
