I forgot about my Topbox subscription this month so when I got a shipping notification for the August 2016 Topbox I remembered, oh right, It’s halfway through August already!
If you haven’t heard of Topbox before it’s a Canadian beauty subscription box which delivers 4-5 deluxe and full size items each month.

This month I opted for the eco organza bag delivery. I no longer get a product card in the mail but Topbox sends out an email detailing pricing info on the items in your box. Last month’s box was awesome, but this month seemed to be lacking.

Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer Sample $5.38
This sample is quite small, but it’s a high end brand. I’ll give it a try and remember that I only paid $12 for the box so I can’t be too picky. If this actually does minimize pores it would be great for my T zone.
MannaKadar Bronzer & Highlight Duo FULL SIZE $21
MannaKadar has been in just about every beauty box I’ve seen for the past few months and frankly I’m tired of seeing it. Not to say it’s a bad product at all, I mean that more as a comment on the curation of beauty boxes in general that send out the same brands over and over. The powder is buttery and has a bit of shimmer to it. I’ve been using this as an eyeshadow duo.
Elizabeth Arden Brightening Night Capsules x4 $6.72
These capsules are quite small and come in sample packs of two. I find it’s hard to give skincare a try in small sample sizes because it takes more than a night or two to find out if a product works for you.
Novex Argan Oil hair mask $3.33 (100g)
I tried out a different Novex hair mask in my Topbox a few months ago and really didn’t like it; However, I do appreciate the generous sample sizes. This smells much nicer than the other one I tried.
Initially I wasn’t sure how I felt about this month’s box but after swatching and playing around with the MannaKadar product I was happy. Alone it’s worth the cost of the entire box and the point of beauty boxes is to try new things. The value of my box is approximately $36.43USD which is lower than other months, but still triple the $12 (CAD) I paid. If you want to check out my other Topbox reviews you can find them Here.
