Topbox February 2016

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.  I had stopped getting this one for a while because I felt they were sending out too many of the same type of samples.  I am giving them a try again because I now get almost no makeup boxes anymore and since this one is Canadian and inexpensive we’ll see how it goes this time.

A very nice pink bag this time.  I just have no use for the tube it would come it and while I don’t have much use for these either I give them to my mom and she uses them for something.

The info card lets you know what you are receiving this month, where you can buy it, and what it will cost you to purchase it again.  On the back this monthis an advertisement for one of the companies with a discount code.

POP Beauty Kajal Pen in Inky Purple-$10.00 Full Size

I’ve received a different colour of this a while ago from Glossybox and loved it.  This one is a lot more black than purple but I’m okay with that.  I rarely use the smudger on the other end but it is nice to have one around.

Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer in Later Alligator-$15.83 Full Size

OOHHHH….I don’t have any green nail polish!  This is such a fun colour and I love it.  The little info included on this says it is inspired by pearls and metallics but while it is glossy it is not shimmery in any way at all.  I think it’s actually better that way, it would look cheap if it had glitter in it.

Nova Scotia Fisherman Extreme Skin Care Sea Salt Soap-28g $1.44

This is a nice sized soap sample.  This soap is available at some grocer stores as well as their own site online.  This does smell a little manly for my taste but I think my Hubby will enjoy it.

Smashbox Photo Finish Classic Primer-7.1mL $10.41

This is a repeat item for me but from a different box.  I love primers and use them everyday.  Anytime I get another one I rejoice because that means it is that much longer before I have to buy one on my own.

This month’s box has a value of $37.68.  This is why I had stopped getting this box last time.  I was getting so many doubles and similar items from month to month that I was annoyed. This month at least the doubles are things that I like and use.  They also have a tendency to send out nail polish really often. The only good thing is that since they only do month to month subscriptions I can cancel this without any hassle if it keeps up.  As I mentioned above I like that it’s a Canadian box and that it’s really reasonably priced but it is not always varied.   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.
