Toppbox – August 2018

Toppbox is a monthly box of men’s grooming supplies. It costs £19 per month plus £3.35 p+p, but the box contents will always be a considerably higher value.

I love skincare products, but for this I have enlisted my lovely husband to try out the items and give his considered opinion!

The box comes in a jiffy bag with a little extra padding to keep everything safe.

The menu card is on top.

And here’s the menu – it has descriptions of each item, plus the prices. I do check all the prices!

The Audacious Beard Co Woodman Beard Oil is apparently very nice to use. My husband’s beard is quite short at the moment, but he still uses oil regularly. This one also has a lovely scent.

I suspect this Admiral Grooming Fire Tulip Hair Serum is something that needs to be used over a period of time to judge its effectiveness. Apparently it will promote hair growth, so probably a lot of men who worry about thinning hair will enjoy this!

The Thomas Michaels Black Label Room Spray isn’t technically a grooming product. However it can also be used as a body spray. It has a wonderful scent, very spicy. It’s also organic and made with essential oils.

Now the weather is slightly less hot, natural deodorant is more realistic to use! The Pure Purpose Lemon Breeze Natural Deodorant has a nice fresh smell, and is a great way to avoid putting nasty chemicals on your skin.

This is a nice practical item, ZEOS for Men QU3 Hair and Body Shower Gel. Combi products are always useful when you’re in a hurry, and this one foams nicely and has a great scent. It’s not drying on the skin either.

Finally, Nakin Natural Lip Treatment Balm is a handy little size. It’s very rich and nourishing, and made from all natural ingredients.

Well, I can use almost everything in this month’s box! Of course my husband can have the beard oil and the hair serum.

We share shower gel and soap so we’ll both enjoy that.

The room spray is really delicious, and while he is unlikely to use it as body spray, we’ve definitely used it in our home!

I’m going to hang on to the natural deodorant, because I like using it, but my husband works in a very hot environment so prefers the hardcore chemical stuff.

I think the room spray and lip balm are the favourite items this month. I love lip balms but I have so many that my husband is going to keep this one. He also doesn’t mind using a little pot, whereas I prefer a stick.

The value, as always, is very good indeed. All of the prices on the menu are correct, except for one. The Admiral Grooming Hair Serum doesn’t appear to exist, and I can’t find any trace on Google. It may have been discontinued, but I can’t find it. But even if you discount that entirely the value of the box is superb.
