Topbox - January 2012

I was kindly contacted by Topbox to review their beauty sample box, and being the beauty product junkie that I am, of course I can't refuse! Just like many others, Topbox offers 4 deluxe sized beauty products for $10. It currently only ships within Canada (Yay for more Canadian companies!)
To my surprise, instead of the traditional rectangular boxes that most other brands come in, Topbox comes in a cylindrical container with a really darling design. I absolutely adore it because it's so girly and different. I have yet to think of a way to make use of this... but I'm sure I will :)
Principessa Beauty - Notte Breeze Dry Shampoo
If you haven't known already, I'm a big fan of dry shampoo because I don't like to wash my hair everyday. I've never heard of this brand, but I'm intrigued to try. The girly packaging is an absolute plus.
Shu Uemura - Full Shimmer Illuminating Shampoo
LillyPilly - Tea Tree Hand & Body Creme

Benefit - Benetint
I actually already own a travel size Benetint and I absolutely love it. This sample size is slightly smaller than the version I have right now, which makes travelling with it even better.

I really like this month's Topbox! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a Shu product since the brand is generally quite expensive. To add to that, I think I can easily make use of all the samples included. I've gotten several sample beauty boxes in the past. Although it's always nice to experience the thrill of opening the box without knowing what's inside, some of the products always get piled up in my beauty stash untouched. However, with this box, I see myself being able to use all 4 samples.

Another thing I want to add is that when you go to Topbox's website, you can see a list of brands that were actually featured in past topbox (rather than potentially going to be featured in the future). Many of those brands are companies that I'm very interested in trying!

Much Love.
If you've tried other beauty sample boxes, let me know what you think of them :)

There are so many of these beauty sample subscription programs that I'm starting to lose track of which is which. This one looks pretty good though - their samples look a lot more generously sized than most other programs :)

I think I'm most excited about this dry shampoo!!! Literally last night I was on my way to the store to hunt for a dry shampoo but i got caught up and didn't make it. Now I get to try this one for free!! :D Fantastic!!! I don't think these products are way too unreasonably priced either. I would totally buy the dry shampoo hand cream or benetiny if I like them!

Awesome! I hope I get the dry shampoo and Benetint in my box (tube?) too!

I wanted to get topbox when it first came out but for some reason my safari was not cooperating with my paypal account! I gave up that day and forgot about it for a while. By the time I went back there was a long waiting list and the next box was to be shipped in March 2012 and this was back in December. I thought that was pretty ridiculous so I gave up! Hopefully they will have more boxes made because I have no patient to wait that long!

I got Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer instead of the Benetint.
