This was the first item I qualified for, offered by Topbox on behalf of L’Oreal.
TopBox is a company that does Sampling, Product Testing and Subscription Boxes, on behalf of a wide range of companies and products.
I am a part of their testing panel, and have enjoyed the experience so far.
They send me surveys, and if I match up with what the brand is looking for, then I can accept the “Mission”. Each Mission is a little different. TopBox will send you the item to test, most times it is something not yet on the shelves, but will be launching soon. Other times it is an established item that has been updated in some way.
We get a period of time to test the time, which is usually 15 to 30 days, depending on the type of product.
The Missions have key things we have to do, things like take a picture of the product, follow their account on instagram, write a review on the company site, or a retailer site(like Walmart). You must complete all the tasks in a Mission to keep in good standing for future Missions.

My Official TopBox Review Writeup
I have been using the L’Oreal Stylista Defining Spray for about a month now and can say this product really does help me out. I have curls that don’t like to form complete ringlets, but sort of go every which way all haphazardly. It can cause they to split really weird, especially while sleeping. When I wake up, I seriously have a fuzzball on my head.
I just dampen my hair a wee bit, brush it out, and then spray this in and scrunch it really well. It smooths out the mess, locks my curls back together and gives it a radiant shine.
It has a really light scent too, which I like. Smells very natural, not an overpowering chemical scent at all. It also doesn’t irritate my scalp.
The mist applicator is really great too, it doesn’t shoot out all over the place, so you can control where it goes easily. It also doesn’t spray a tonne of product too quickly, which makes it easier to control certain trouble spots.
I can attest to the fact it does last a good 24hours. You hair also stays feeling like you natural hair, and not gunked up feeling, when you or someone else touches it.
I would totally recommend this if you have troublesome curls that need a bit of taming.
Would I Purchase?
Yes, I really have been enjoying this products, and it worked great when we were at the beach. I use this after swimming sometimes too. I find it leaves less residue that other products of a similar sort, even my Marc Anthony Defining Spray. This smells really good too.
Thanks to TopBox for pairing me up with L’Oreal, it was a really nice product to try, and I had a great experience trying it out.
