So I got my box right on schedule and you know, I almost ripped the darn thing open but soon realized I had to refrain. I needed to film my video on it! I set myself up in my filming area and once the RECORD button was pressed, away I went with ripping the darn thing open! I was beyond excited to see I received my first choice for my box: Aveda!! Who doesn't like Aveda? It's such a quality company with quality products I must say. I have tried some of their products WAY BACK WHEN when I was a makeup artist and worked in a salon. I have a love-hate relationship with the Aveda scent. It's not overly annoying or strong. It's just a scent that's quite unique, one many might not like. Medicinal and floral and herbal...Yep, weird LOL!
The choices for the Aveda Privé Box was for curly or straight hair and for obvious reasons, I chose the straight hair option LOL! For the straight hair option, they had the Smoothing Fluid and Smooth Infusion tubes. I received two(2) Smooth Infusion tubes and one(1) tube of the Smoothing Fluid. As you can see from my First Impressions video, the samples were pretty small. I would've liked that Aveda made larger samples since I have very long hair but pickers can't be choosers! I haven't tried these out yet but I am very excited to this weekend!
Along with the aforementioned products there were also the Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair with Quinoa Protein which is something I am wanting to use also. They included product samples for skin care, a hand cream and a foot cream. The skin products were from the Tourmaline Charged lineup: Exfoliating Cleanser, Radiant Skin Refiner and the Hydrating Creme. The foot cream was called Foot Relief and the hand cream was called Hand Relief. I have tried only the hand cream and I must say, it is amazing!! I definitely see myself purchasing it since I'm always on the lookout for that great hand cream!
I am very happy with this Aveda Topbox! Yes the samples were small though but the quality is still in the product themselves and I am always happy to test out a quality product. So far, I am very pleased with what I've tried. I may actually include more Aveda products in the near future!
I can say I passed on the upcoming Privé Box - the choices weren't as dynamic in my opinion. It was a choice of the Aveda box again or the Elizabeth Arden box which held zero appeal to me. So I will be receiving the regular Topbox for April. I hope it's still a great box!
