Topbox March 2013 Aveda Box

Topbox March 2013 Aveda Box

If you’ve been to a spa in the past decade (or two), you’ve probably encountered an Aveda treatment and/or product. Worldwide you’ll find Aveda shops and Experience Centres as well as independent spas and salons that offer Aveda services and cosmetics. One of this month’s Topboxes (and apparently next month’s, too) was an Aveda themed box specific to hair type. Me, I received the “Be Curly” Aveda Box. In addition to several hair treatment samples, this box also included a facial routine and hand and foot care products.

March 2013 "Be Curly" Aveda Topbox featuring Tourmaline Charged Exfoliating Cleanser, Radiant Skin Refiner and Hydrating Creme, Be Curly Style Prep (x2), Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair and Intensive Restructuring Treatment, and Hand Relief and Foot Relief.

This little box contained nine (9) 7-10 mL (0.24-0.34 fl. oz.) samples from Aveda’s Tourmaline Charged skincare line, Be Curly styling line, Damage Remedy hair treatment line, and Hand Relief and Foot Relief lines.

These samples are the perfect size to pop into an overnight or travel bag, as well as gym bag or purse. As someone who’s taking a beach vacation in May, I was quite excited to receive these samples – perfect variety and sizes for my travelling cosmetics bag!

Aveda is a fairly environmentally progressive company, making great leaps with recycled bottles, wind-generated power, organic products, and environmentally friendly (non-toxic) cosmetics and practises.

Another lovely aspect of Aveda products is their gentle, earthy scent. It’s hard not to recognize it once you know it. It always smells fresh, clean, and green.

Be Curly Style-Prep

Be Curly Style-Prep

I really liked how subscribers got 2 samples of their chosen hair product (Be Curly or Smooth Infusion). Be Curly is a pre-style treatment that contains wheat protein, a compound which is scientifically proven to increase your hair’s ability to retain moisture. (Your hair is roughly 90% protein after all.)

My Intensive Restructuring Treatment seemed to encounter a manufacturing/printing issue. (Poor thing.)

Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment is a once-weekly treatment designed to repair damaged hair (essentially a hair mask/balm). Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair is a leave-in treatment that also protects hair against heated styling tools. Both products contain quinoa protein.
