August 2013 Topbox Review: GlamGlow

What do you get when you sign up with Topbox?

For $12 a month (with free shipping*), subscribers receive a Glam Bag with four beauty samples. Topbox is customized; your samples are based on the Beauty Profile you filled out when you signed up. Unlike most Monthly Glam Bags, not only do you not know what you're getting ahead of time, but you can't find any spoilers from Topbox's website. Every month is a complete surprise!

With one exception: Each month, Topbox sends you a wishlist of other boxes that you could receive. You "wish" for the box you want and you may get it (instead of the regular monthly box). This month, I decided to "wish" on a box; and I got it!

*available to Canadian residences only

What I got:

What it contained:

Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask

Super-Mud Clearing Treatment

Thoughts: I was excited that I actually got what I "wished" for on my first try.

The Tingling and Exfoliating Mud Mask worked really well! It definitely started to tingle right away (it almost burned, but the feeling went away pretty quickly) and I could feel it hardening on my face.

The jar says it has pieces of "volcanic minerals" in it which left me somewhat confused. What the heck is volcanic mineral?

It also contained large chunks of, something (I'll assume the volcanic mineral) in it which was a bit weird.

Other than that, it smelled great and it left my face feeling very soft.

When I washed it off, it made a bit of a mess in the sink but I guess the results were worth it.

I'd give this a 3 out of 5.

For your comedic pleasure.

The white is the part that's dry; the green is the part that's still wet.
