First Ever TopBox -- October 2012 ... What A Bummer!

I waited for months on the Topbox wait list and I was so excited to find out I was going to be receiving the October top box , I waited anxiously for the post man up until Friday when I saw a blogger CarlyJean share her very first top box , I was floored , it was nothing I will ever use. Some other individuals got a paint pot from Stila and some oils which I would have loved to receive but it wasn't my luck ,
I have seen a lot of post's about this months topbox and how it wasn't great , If you're wondering I got version three.
The contents included :

  • Enrocare - Which is a concentrated serum for the skin 
  • MaserAide Facial Mask - Unfortunately I can not use these types of masks as I suffer from extreme sensitive skin 
  • Stila Eyeshadow "Pallet" - This was sort of neat , however I don't use eyeshadow often and these look like 1 time use shadows, I would have prefered a single shadow with more product to try 
  • Vasanti Cosmetics Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator - It's suppose to improve the skins texture and brightness, but I already have a skincare regimen that works for me 
I think this entire box will be graciously given away , as none of these products are useful , I was at least hoping for one product I could find use for, however this did not happen. I will stick around to see what changes may arise , however if all these beauty boxes continue to disappoint I may just put my money else where!

    1. I am willing to give them another chance to Joanne , that's the great risks we take with beauty boxes :)

  3. Topbox usually only comes with four products a month, that is what they advertise (which is why it is so cheap! only $10 a month). However I totally agree with you, this months box sucked.

  4. I was a bit disappointed too because it seems like the Stila sampler palette shouldn't count as anything more than an "extra" because it's just a piece of cardboard with 1-use samples on it but I have to say I really do like it a lot still. I don't feel that it's a deluxe sample but I'm happy to get to try a bunch of different shades.

    I can imagine how bummed you are since you won't use any of these. I'm half-bummed but I actually like most of the products.

  5. As a quickly FYI, MaskerAide masks are formulated for sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin and love mine :)

  6. Yeah, this month's box seems very meh. I haven't even received mine yet because there was some delay with Canada Post (not Topbox's fault, though). I do love Topbox overall, and their customer service is awesome. I'd keep on with them and hopefully next month's box will be better!
