Before beginning my review I should let you know that I was in no way compensated for my review. This is a monthly subscription service that I pay for monthly.
This month I received my Topbox a little later the usually. Not sure what happened but its okay. The first thing I noticed right away was how light the tube was. Topbox was been pretty consistent with there boxes and I realize you can't always have a great box and I think I can probably count on one hand how many times its been a lousy month. So that is a pretty good record.
Since starting topbox they have always been consistent like I said. They have remained with the same packaging with the exception of the tube you have the choice of what you want to receive, this pretty one or a plain recycled one and I love the printed ones and I think the only recyclable one I have (that was a special tube) is used to store change.
So lets get into this months tube shall we.
The full size is 8.5 g for $29 (sadly as much as I like this, I don't see me buying it when it runs out, I just can't justify spending that on a tube of mascara.) The sample we got was 3.0g for $10
This is something that is new to me, I have never heard of this perfume before. Balenciaga Paris: L'essence by Balenciaga Paris. I wasn't sure on the scent at first so I had to check it out. The card said that this is a sequel and a new beginning. A leathery violet fragrance, a new contemporary elegance. I found this to be a little strong at first but then as it wore on I loved it. I could see me wearing this day or evening. The only down part of this is the bottle I wish that it would have been a spray bottle instead
The sample is 4ml for $9.00 and the full size 50ml for $110.00
We got a sample size of 30ml bottle for $4.50 and the full sizes are 90ml for $13 or 240ml for $26 . I think that is a pretty good price and I could see me going out to buy this when I finished it.
Also include in the Topbox is the product card which I love getting because not all the time is the computer on and alot of subscription services is doing away with it and I really hope that Topbox doesn't.
On the flip side of the card was this:
I am hoping to grab this soon although I might pass this one to a friend since I don't get downtown all that often and to make the trip to get this is a little crazy since I would be relying on public transportation.
Did you get Topbox? What did you think this month?
