TopBox May 2015 Review -Aveda Prive box

TopBox is a Canadian Beauty Box. It’s an affordable option if you’re looking to explore new brands and try some new products.

In case you didn’t know the way it works is a few weeks prior to shipping every subscriber receives an email asking them to create their Wish List, you get a list of a few different options and if you like any of them you can add one of TopBox’s prive boxes to your ‘wishlist’ you can wish for as many boxes as you like or opt for a regular Topbox. Of course there’s no guarantee you’ll get your wish you may still end up with a regular topbox.

Subscription Box: TopBox
Cost: $12 Free Shipping (Canada Only)+Tax total comes to $13.56 / month
What you get:  4 samples of beauty and skincare products

TopBox comes in a cardboard tube each month, but you also have the option to opt out of the box and get yours in an organza bag instead. Every TopBox also comes with a product information card describing the items you received in your box. This month I opted for the Aveda Prive box and I got it. I’ve heard good things about this brand and have always wanted to try it out.

In this Prive box there were 7 sample items 4 hair and 3 skin care.

Aveda Hand Relief – Night Renewal Serum

Nature renews your hands nightly.

  • visibly reduces dark spots
  • moisturizes and plumps to smooth fine lines
  • andiroba oil protects skin’s natural moisture barrier

This was a very small sample,  I used it for a couple of nights, it moisturizes nicely but I didn’t notice any change in my hands. The smell is very nice on this moisturizer

Hydrating body lotion with aroma proven to reduce feelings of stress. Aroma includes essences of lavender, lavandin and clary sage from organic farms and is formulated using the science of aromaology™ and the power of pure essential oils. 

This lotion smells nice and natural. I’m not sure that it relieved my stress though, but it does moisturize well.
