This is the latest I've ever done my Topbox post, but I'm a bit behind on posts due to the Christmas season. Also, it took 7 days to get to me! (5 of those days it was just sitting in a Canada Post warehouse). I know the post office is extremely busy this time of year, so I don't really blame them, and now that I've had it for awhile I got to try out all the items so I can tell you what I think!
|Festive red tissue paper|
|December Topbox products|
|Murad Cleanser (30 ml sample)|
|Goldwell Jelly Boost (30 ml sample)|
|Chloe Eau de Parfum (5 ml sample)|
|Ferro Cosmetics Blush sample|
|Swatch on hand (pardon my reddish hand! I had just come in from out|
of the cold)
One big thing is the packaging; I do think that Topbox could have made this box a little more festive, - either through the product card, how it was packaged or what was included. Also, I feel this box should reflect the price increase ($10 to $12 monthly) through an extra sample or maybe have the blush be filled up more than halfway.
Topbox has recently announced that they will be offering a Prive box. Here's what the email said about this box.
"Starting in 2013, we will be introducing the Privé Box™. Each Privé Box will showcase a selection of products from one featured brand. As a Topbox member, you get exclusive or priority access to these boxes. We are very excited to announce that you will all receive our first Privé Box this January, from one of the world's most iconic beauty brands.
Like our monthly Topboxes, the Privé Boxes will be customized when applicable. Hence, we recommend that you update your basic Beauty Profile, especially if your beauty needs and sense of style are evolving."
So I guess we'll see what the beauty brand is come January, and how this new Prive box stacks up to the regular Topbox!
What did you get in your Topbox this December? What did you think of it? Thoughts on the new Prive box?
