The One with the Topbox April 2016 Box

What is it? Topbox
How much is it? $12 CAD per month
Ships to? Canada
Shipping costs? Free
What’s inside? 4 deluxe sample or full size beauty products

Ofra Lipliner
This is a water resistant lip pencil created with synthetic beeswax. This came in the shade “wine.” You would think it would be more purple in colour, but it’s more of a reddish brown. I can see myself using this as long as I have the right shade of lipstick to go with it!
Retail Value: $16.41 CAD

pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum
I previously received this in an Ipsy bag. This is above and beyond my favourite item from my Topbox this month. I’ve been using eye serums and creams every day lately. This serum firms and brightens, and helps reduce puffiness, dark circles and fine lines. It’s also expensive as hell so if I can keep getting these samples, I’d be ok with that!
Retail Value: $38.26 CAD

Vichy Laboratories Ideal Body Balm
I wasn’t initially excited by this but after reading into it and it’s benefits, I can’t wait to try it. This body balm is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, LHA, and 10 essential oils for firmer, smoother, more radiant skin. It’s paraben free and hypoallergenic!
Retail Value: $2.06 CAD

POP Beauty Pure Pigment
I received the colour “crystal glitz.” I have no idea how to use this product! How do you apply it? Wet brush? Glue? Silly putty? XD However you do it, it just seems way too out of my comfort zone!
Retail Value: $12.61 CAD

Schick Hydro Silk Razor
This was a bonus item that everyone received this month! It has 5 blades which is what I normally like to use so this razor is perfect for me. It also came with a coupon.
Retail Value: $12.64 CAD

Total Retail Value: $81.98 CAD

Final Thoughts? I wasn’t very excited about this box, evident by my late review, clearly! πŸ˜› I think I was just disappointed that yet again I didn’t get any of the stellar prive boxes I wished for. However, the more I think about it, I’m actually happy with this box. Sure, the pigment was awful for me, but the rest ranged from decent to great items. The pur-lisse eye serum alone was worth the cost of the entire bag by a long shot! Keep sending those my way, subscription boxes! πŸ˜‰ It’s so awesome that Topbox sent everyone an extra item, too, because it’s normally 4 items.

Until next time,
xoxo, Tigritsa

  1. The serum is definitely the best item this month, I’m blown away by the value of the sample. I’m not even sure what that Pop beauty item is supposed to do! Lol
