Unboxing – Topbox Beauty Box, September

In today’s story I am unboxing the September beauty box, that I started to subscribe to with Topbox Canada this past August (see the August unboxing story here). Last month I got about four beauty products and a couple of coupons, however I haven’t used them all yet. I’ve used the Elizabeth Arden cleansing pads (which are great, I loved them) and I used my brow waxing coupon. I had my brows waxed and shaped at a Caryl Baker Visage salon in my area, and the girl from there did a really great job, I was thrilled. But I still didn’t make time to use the Joico hair product, the Smashbox foundation primer and the Manna Kadar bronzer, and that’s because I still have similar types of beauty products that I currently use, so I was in no hurry to try these. But I will get to them eventually. Also, my August box had a coupon for Mereadesso beauty products which I didn’t use, because I didn’t make any plans to buy any Mereadesso products, but maybe I will, or give that coupon to a friend.

I got my September beauty box in the mail a few days ago, and I was really thrilled to discover this month’s surprise. When the mail came, this was the package that I got, bigger than last month.
Then I opened the package, and this is what I found inside – a Unilever box, a cylinder (like the one from last month), and a Make Up For Ever coupon (valid until October 15th).
Then I opened the Unilever box.
I took out the content, and I found that there are 10 beauty products in my Unilever box.
Degree anti-perspirant body spray;
St. Ives apricot face scrub;
Vaseline lip balm;
Vaseline lotion for dry skin (I think I’ll use it for my hands this winter, because the skin on my hands tends to get very dry during the cold season);
Simple cleansing facial wipes;
Dove nourishing body wash;
TRESemme hair spray;
Nexxus hairspray;
Nexxus shampoo;
Nexxus conditioner.

Then I proceeded to opening the cylinder – what I found inside was a package wrapped in purple tissue paper and a coupon for Origins products (which I may or may not use, I’ll see).
I unwrapped the purple package and this is what I found inside.
B Spa Bon Vital body lotion;
Gorge leave in conditioning hair spray;
Joico temporary color hair spray (fiery coral);
Origins charcoal face mask to clear pores.

I didn’t have time to try and use all of them yet, only a few of them, specifically the Simple facial wipes, the St. Ives apricot face scrub, the Dove nourishing body wash, and all three are great, I love them. I’ll make time to try and test the other ones in the following days too.
I’m really excited about this month’s beauty box, it’s way more than I expected I would get, and I can’s wait to try all the other products that I haven’t tried yet. My monthly box from Topbox is only $13, so it’s a real bargain.

Have you tried any of these products? Any of them among your favorites?

Have a wonderful day everyone!
