Last week, I shared the Unilever Trends box from Topbox and mentioned that I also bought the Unilever Classic box. Like the Trends box, it included a full size deodorant along with Vaseline Lip Therapy plus several travel sized products. I actually found this box a bit more useful than the Trends box size as I like Nexxus Therappe/Humectress so it is great to have a travel size for the holidays.
Topbox Unilever Classic Box – Degree and Vaseline
Like the Dove deodorant, Degree MotionSense Dryspray is an aerosol type deodorant. It isn’t the stuff of your nightmares leaving white marks and has an environmentally friendly aerosol additive. Motionsense formulas have unique microcapsules sit on the surface of your skin. When you move friction breaks those microcapsules and they release more fragrance. So every time you move, MotionSense keeps you fresh and free from odour.
Like the Dove DrySpray, he promises 48 hour protection which I didn’t check out as I prefer showering regularly but it did a good job keeping me dry and not smelly throughout the day. I found it performed a little better than the Dove but wasn’t as soft feeling on the pits either.
Vaseline Intensive Care Dry Skin Repair is one I have used before and like. I usually buy the cocoa butter formula but this one is non greasy and gives a good dose of moisture that lasts. Despite the thinner formula, it works well as a hand cream too. Vaseline Lip Therapy Original is pretty much just a little tub of vaseline. Nothing special but it does protect your lips in winter. I prefer the cocoa butter one I got in the Trends box. We give Quincy a bit of Vaseline daily to help with hairballs so he just licks it out of this little container!
Topbox Unilever Classic Box – Haircare
The Unilever Classic Topbox included four hair care samples in travel sizes. Nexxus Therappe Shampoo, Nexxus Humectress Conditioner, Nexxus Comb Through Finishing Mist and Tresemme Tres Two Hair Spray. Since I already use Nexxus Therappe/Humectress regularly and like them, I didn’t use the samples but put them away for travel over the holidays.
Nexxus Comb Through Finishing Mist is only good for me when my hair is behaving. The same is true for most hairsprays though. I need more hold than it gives and then I hate the sticky or crunchy formula. This gives a light hold without feeling like you have hairspray in your hair. I also love that it has a light scent. Why are hairsprays so heavily scented anyway?
Tresemme Tres Two does have the hold I need but is not as nice feeling in the hair as the Nexxus finishing mist. While it is less sticky than many extra hold sprays, you can still feel it in your hair.
Topbox Unilever Classic Box – Skincare
These are all products I use regularly so I won’t review them again. But like the haircare, it is great to have travel sizes to take with me when we go away over the holidays. It included Dove Nutrum Deep Moisture bodywash, Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes and St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub.
The Unilever Classic and Unilever Trend boxes are no longer available from Topbox but they always have great boxes. Check out the current boxes here.
