Toppbox Review October 2020 by Darren

I have always enjoyed unboxing and reviewing the boxes from Toppbox as I know I will receive a selection of great products tailored to my preferences and needs. This month was no exception and as usual I have to stop Nazia from taking her pick of the new products before I can test them out!  I would like to say a big thank you to Alham for sending this box for me to unbox and review.

If you missed my wife and I unboxing Toppbox live on Facebook, you can catch it here on the BoXession YouTube channel:

My thoughts on the products:

Super Facialist Vitamin B3 Energising Face Wash
This daily face wash is enriched with vitamin B3, E, aloe vera and cactus water to leave your face feeling clean and fresh. I found this wash to work really well and it didn’t leave my skin feeling dry which is a problem I have had with other face washes. Another brand to add to my list of favourites!

Q+A Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum
I don’t normally use a facial serum in my skin care so this was a good opportunity to give one a try. The hyaluronic acid left my skin feeling hydrated and feeling great. I will need to continue to using this serum over the next few weeks to see how it performs long term, but I am more than happy with the results in the first week of use!

Procoal Purifying Charcoal Sheet Mask
I like using a face mask once in a while so I was more then happy to test out this charcoal sheet mask. The mask was easy to apply and left my skin feeling great, the white willow extract helped to refine my pores and is meant to have antimicrobial properties as well. The mask is cruelty free and made without any nasties so it was great on my sensitive skin.

Siamo Rejuvenation Body Scrub
This was one of the most interesting products in this month’s box, this scrub is made from ground oats and Epsom salts to help exfoliate the skin with shea butter and almond oil to moisturise the skin. I really enjoyed using this scrub as it left my skin feeling great as it exfoliated without drying out my skin. The pack is resealable which is really useful as you won’t use the whole pack in one go.

What’s in it for me? Body Cream
This thick moisturising cream has an amazing fresh scent of jasmine, violet and cedarwood. Using it for the last week after showering has left my skin feeling moist and supple which I hope continues as I use it. A little went a long way leaving my skin hydrated for the rest of the day with no irritation which is brilliant for my sensitive skin.

SkinChemists Extreme Teeth Whitening Charcoal Gel
This product alone is worth more then the cost of the whole box! I have tried a few charcoal toothpastes in the past and cannot seem to get on with them, the taste of the charcoal is just off putting for me. This meant Nazia was more then happy to take it from me for her own use, she found it has helped to whiten her teeth even with only using it for the last week so hopefully this continues with longer use.

Verdict

This month’s box features a whole host of exciting new brands which I’d not come across before. One of the best things about Toppbox is it gives me the opportunity to try out a number of different products and brands so I can discover some new favourites. The boxes are always fantastic value for money, the products this month have been great to test out and have produced really good results so I couldn’t be happier with it.
