Topbox March 2015

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.  I actually liked a few of the specialty options this months so I put in a yes when they sent out the email requests.  None of the boxes are guarantied beyond the standard box but I seem to have got one of the special ones.

I have to confess that I don’t remember what the options were but I seem to have picked  London Drugs available products.  This is also the first time I’ve received the tube packaging since I normally opt for just a bag.  Everything fits pretty goo in there though.

The info card is the same as normal except it mentions with every item that you can get them at London Drugs.

Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum-5mL $12.00

I have received Elizabeth Arden products from Topbox before, but since I would never spend that kind of money on facial care I never have a complaint about it.  It’s a bit hard to tell from the picture but there are little white balls of goodness suspended n the liquid.  You apply this product between cleansing and moisturizing and it will help rejuvenate your skin, reduce fine wrinkles, and make you appear stress free.  If it can really do that last one it might be worth the $72 full size price tag.

Reversa Cleansing Micellar Solution-30mL $2.30

This cleanser is a rinse free makeup remover.  This one is good for sensitive skin as well.  I like the idea of this product but can’t help but think the makeup I am removing is just being relocated around my face.  I’ll still give it a go and hope for the best.

NYX Professional Makeup Slide On Pencil in Golden Bronze-$9.99 Full Size

I might be in the minority here but I like a metallic eyeliner.  I usually have a neutral eyeshadow and a crazy liner on so this is perfect.  It is a soft pencil and really does just slide on.  I gave it the rub test and it barely smeared as well so I like this one.

StriVectin-AR Advanced Retinol Night Treatment-7mL $16.80

This night cream is supposed to improve the visible sighs of aging.  It is a complex of Niacin and Retinol which is supposed to make the Retinol less harsh then it can be.  It smells like a serious night cream so I’m sure it will work just as well as anything else I’ve tried up to this point.

This months box has a value of $41.09 which is great.  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 few have been more varied and contained products I was happy with so I think it’ll get yet another month.  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.
