Where has the year gone… it only feels like yesterday that we were kicking off 2014 and yet it’s already December! Just like time that keeps on ticking, the Topboxes keep on coming, although with this post, I will (finally) be caught up with all the boxes I have received so far. *victory*
October’s Topbox included:
- Miracle 10 Skincare AHA Cream (15ml x 2)
So as you can see, I only received two of the same item in my October box, but let me tell you – this is probably one of my favorite boxes of all time. I selected the Miracle 10 Skincare prive box because it is one of my favorite skin care lines and I would rather have something I truly love over a “surprise” box. Topbox actually introduced me to the Miracle 10 Skincare products back in February of 2013 and I haven’t looked back since. I love that Miracle 10 is a Canadian brand and most importantly, that it works in keeping my skin looking great. I am going to go off on a tangent for a quick second here so bear with me – In the summer when I was in Toronto, I stopped off at the Miracle 10 clinic in Yorkville for a Miracle 10 peel and my skin is so nice afterwards that I couldn’t believe it. If I lived in Toronto – that peel would be a regular part of my skin care regimen. As it is, I am booking a Miracle 10 peel the next time I visit Toronto and not at the last minute like I did this past summer. The peel is $125 but surprisingly I am not adverse to paying that price – that is how impressed I was with the look of my skin after the peel.
Anyways, back to the AHA cream – I love it and it makes me skin feel and look amazing. I will always pick a Miracle 10 Skincare Prive box over any other Topbox if given the opportunity.
November’s Topbox included:
- Eyeko Black Magic Mascara (4ml)
- Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum (5ml)
- UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment (9ml)
- Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15 hour Primer (1.2g)
After all that love for the October box, November was bound to be a little underwhelming. My box also arrived a little late (Nov 21) since it went missing for a little bit, but Topbox was really great in letting me know that it was delayed and would be coming soon.
I am actually quite interested in the Benefit Stay Flawless primer because I prefer to use a primer before putting my foundation on – I don’t know what that says about my foundation but I like that this will help keep things matte and “flawless”. I am a little skeptical of the UniqOne All in One treatment because I tend to find products that promise to do everything never live up to that, but I look forward to trying it out. The Elizabeth Arden Caplet Serum is intriguing and definitely one I will use, but I am not quite sure how the caplets are supposed to break in this pump bottle? And finally, the Eyeko Black Magic mascara… I am the hoarder of all things mascara and I don’t know when I am going to get to this one. I have read mixed reviews on it, but I do think the packaging is different compared to other mascaras and is quite pretty.
So What Would Argenplath Pay?
Topboxes remain $12.60 each and I am a little shocked that they haven’t gone up in price for a long time (not that I want them to increase their prices). The October Topbox was a phenomenal value for me because of how much I love the product and November was ok, but not as great as some of the other Topboxes this year.
October Topbox – Total Value: $38.40
- Miracle 10 Skincare AHA Cream ($38.40)
November Topbox – Total Value: $26.81
- Eyeko Black Magic Mascara ($10.76)
- Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum ($12)
- UniqOne All in One Hair Treatment ($1.20)
- Benefit Cosmetics Stay Flawless 15 hour Primer ($2.85)
