Topbox April 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 it let’s me dabble with a small commitment.

I always go for just the bag packaging because I have no use for the tube and just recycle it anyways so why bother.  The bags are good enough.

They always include an info card that lets you know what you received, what to do with it or why it’s good.  They also tell you where to buy more and the full price.

Ofra Cosmetics Lipliner in Wine-$17.25 Full Size

I don’t wear a lot of lip liner but this is a good colour for my normal lipstick choices.  I have received quite a few different products from this brand and I like them.  This will join my routine on days when I think I need a bit more sticking power for my lip colour.

Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum-7mL $30.33

This eye cream provides hydration, firms and brightens, and decreases puffiness.  All of which I can use lately because the little one has not been sleeping well and the older one is sick, so my sleeping needs are not at the forefront of anyone’s plans.

Orofluido Beauty Elixir-$17.81 Full Size

This is actually a hair product, suitable for all hair types, that is supposed to give you silkiness, lightness, and shine.  It uses three oils to leave a residue free finish while adding a soft vanilla scent.  I don’t care for vanilla scented perfumes and such but this one is so subtle that even I don’t mind it.

Lise Watier Cosmetiques Inc. Sublimessence High Concentration Age-Defying Serum-3mL $9.00

This serum says it will deliver  powerful dose of age reversing ingrediants.  It uses Labrador Tea extract and active cell infusion complex, whatever either of those are.  I have not bought a serum since I started getting boxes and they are one of the few things that, because they are small samples, I use up consistently.

Philosophy Purity Facial Cleansing Cloths-$20.00 Full Size

So this month they had an offer that you could add a bonus item to your bag for $10.00.   I decided to go for it and this was what I got.  I have a bit of a surplus of facial wipes right now but I love this brand and never want to pay for it so these make me happy.  Totally worth my $10.00.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor-$9.97

This was also in my bag so I’m not sure of it’s part of the bonus surprise or just a bonus item.  Either way it is useful and the included coupon helps out,.

This month’s box has a value of $104.36. Holy Crap!!  This month was awesome.  There were no duplicates and even with having to pay an extra $10.00 that’s way higher than the price.  I like the items I got this time and am happy with all of them. The good thing is that since they only do month to month subscriptions I can cancel this without any hassle if it gets really repetitive.  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.
