Topbox February 2015

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!  Hope your loved ones remember and you get the pampering you want and deserve!

Topbox is a Canadian beauty subscription that ships you 4 samples every month.  The shipping is free, which is nice, but there is tax based upon your province.  This still makes it one of the cheapest boxes out there at $12 per month.  Topbox normally comes is a cardboard container but you can chose to receive your products in a reusable organza bag for even less waste, which is my choice.  They also offer special boxes that you can put on your wish list and you may get them or you’ll get the regular box. Lately they seem to be shipping out earlier in the month then they used to which is nice, since a lot of my boxes come in the last half.  This month I also got the shipping info email the same day it showed up in my mailbox.  I like surprises so that didn’t bother me in the least.

The purple mailer it arrives in.  It’s been a bit since I showed it so I thought I’d post it again.

As I mentioned above, I opt for the bag instead of the cardboard tube.  I would just have to recycle the tube anyways since I wouldn’t use them for anything else, though I’m sure you could.

The info card.  It is nicely descriptive so you get a good idea of everything you are receiving.  This month they did send out an email though because one of the items on the card is the wrong product from the company.

Eyeko Hydrogel Eye Patch-1 set $4.50

You use this to anti-stress and anti-fatigue your eye area.  I am all over this right now.  I just need to find 20 minutes to use it……

DERMADoctor, Inc. KP Duty Lotion-30mL $10.00

This was the mistaken item this month.  The card lists us as getting a pore minimizer and instead we got this moisturiser. I would have been happy with either so it doesn’t matter to me.  This formula is made to improve dry skin and help with those little bumps that can appear on your skin.  It doesn’t smell the greatest but since it will not be used on my face it is less of an issue then it could be.

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil-35mL $3.36

This smells really nice.  I have tried a few items from L’Occitane from boxes and I have never been disappointed yet.  I always think of them as a higher end brand so even just a simple shower gel feels like a treat to me.  This is an oil that magically transforms into foam when it comes into contact with water.  Can’t wait to try it out next shower.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics La Isla Chique Brush

This is a natural goat hair pencil brush.  I like the design on the handle and while I’m not certain I think this would be used as a liner brush.  It’s small and pointed at the end.  The website does not have any pricing on it so I’m not sure of a value.

This months box has a value of $17.86 plus whatever the brush is worth making it about $10 above what I paid if the brush is around $5, which seems fair.  I like everything in the box and will use it all.  This is still a box I’m undecided about keeping but it is one of the few that is Canadian so I don’t have to pay the exchange rate, making it very reasonable.  The last two have been more varied and contained products I was happy with so I think it’ll get another month yet.  If you are interested in getting your own Topbox send me a message and I can give you a link or you can visit them here.
