Topbox April 2017

Topbox is a monthly Canadian subscription box featuring four beauty samples ranging from skincare, body-care, makeup, hair-care and fragrance. It costs $12 a month with free shipping. You can also opt to receive a special Prive box each month. These are usually brand specific and you know the items before hand. At the start of the month you are able to make a “wishlist” of which boxes you would like to receive, though you are never guaranteed the Prive box.

The Goods

Cake The ‘Do Gooder Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray–Spray generously into hair in sections, concentrating on scalp and roots. Lightly brush through. Sweet tip: Use as a quick fix during the day or on freshly washed hair to add volume. As a general rule, I love Cake products. This dry shampoo doesn’t have the amazing cake smell that their lotions have, but it seems to do the trick. I didn’t notice any white powder residue leftover after spraying, which is always a huge bonus.

LARITZY Cosmetics Lip Pencil–This creamy lip pencil can be worn alone or under your favorite lip gloss or lipstick for long-lasting color. This isn’t a great shade for me so this will be going into my gifting stash.

Jing Ai Velvet Shine Lip Jewel–Velvet Shine Lip Jewel gives your lips a powerful dose of highly pigmented long lasting color. The forumla is infused with 100% natural macadamia seed oil, shea butter and jojoba seed oil. This paraben free formula keeps your lips looking glamorous throughout the day with beautiful hydration and a sexy pout that you will love. No sharpening ever needed, just twist the lip crayon to advance the tip. I haven’t tried this out yet, but it’s a really pretty color. I like that it’s a twist pencil, I really don’t like ones that I have to sharpen myself.

Marcelle New Age 3-in-1 Lumi Power–An invigorating multi-action gel cream anti-aging + anti-fatigue that smooths and hydrates skin with it’s Radiance+ HA complex, making skin visibly brighter and radiant. Perfect product for women with active lifestyles. I’ve used this a few times, but it’s never going to be enough to notice a difference. I do like how it goes on though, I don’t notice any greasy residue left over.

Every once in awhile Topbox will include a complimentary sample. I always love seeing what we get!

The first item (left) is a L’Oreal Hydra Genius sample for normal to oily skin. It offers 72 hours of instant and continuous hydration. It’s also mattifying, by removing excess sebum for a fresh feel and healthy look. I’m glad they included two of these cards, I’m not sure if it’s enough for me to really see how well it works, but it’s a good start!

The second item (right) is the Garnier Skinactive Moisture Bomb sheet mask. It’s water based and provides deep moisture. It also includes pomegranate extract, which just sounds like it will smell amazing. I haven’t used this yet either, but I enjoy masks and can’t wait to give it a go soon!

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed this months box, I won’t be able to use the one lip product because of the color, but everything else was great for me. I’ve already been using the dry shampoo and the Lumi Power, and the other products will get used as well!
