Topbox March 2018 Review

by / / in Subscription Boxes Topbox/ 0 Comment(s)

Topbox is a Canadian subscription box and currently the subscription box that I super love. So today, I will be giving my honest review of what I think about the products that I received from their March 2018 box. The box arrived on time, but my review is late.

Name of the Box: Topbox

Cost: $12 CAD + tax (free shipping)

What you will get: Each month, subscribers will get four beauty samples. Samples can range from skincare, bodycare, makeup, haircare and fragrance. The samples are from prestige brands. Some of these brands are well known and others are newly launched or small and niche.

Unlike most subscription boxes, Topbox don’t provide leaflets with product information, instead they send the information through email.

 

Here comes the products!

Delectable by Cake Beauty Sweet Mint Cream Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream60mL (Full Size) – $6.00
The best hand cream to hydrate and moisturize extra dry hands and cuticles, infused with coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera to soothe, smooth, and nourish.

There are too many positive things to say about this product; It smells so good it’s like having dessert on your hand, it is deeply moisturizing and my skin felt soft after. Cake Beauty takes pride in their cruelty free and vegan product and that surely make me very happy. At this age, I try my best to go for vegan and organic products because I know my skin will thank me later for taking care of it.

 

LANEIGE Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask20mL – $8.25
An ultra-nourishing treatment that soothes and supports firmness in skin. Nourish the skin with antioxidants and nutrition from yogurt and various berry extracts.

Laneige is the beauty brand that I am dying to try. If only the price tag doesn’t break a bank, I will complete their beauty line for my daily routine. Nevertheless, I am glad I got this mask sample for me to try before I literally break the bank once I start loving it.
The mask smells soo good you’ll think it’s food. I love how hydrated and nourished my face felt after.

 

Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara3.0 g – $11.29
BADgal BANG! 36-hour full-blast volumising mascara creates massive volume without weighing down lashes. The gravity-defying formula contains aero-particles, one of the lightest known materials, derived from space technology. This innovative intense pitch-black mascara layers easily for bigger impact. Its custom big Slimpact! brush is streamlined to reach root-to-tip, corner-to-corner, upper & lower lashes for big volume with 360° reach!

True to its promise of massive volume, it sure did gave me lashes. No, I’m not joking, I only have few, short and thin eyelashes that are not even noticeable when I don’t have mascara on, but this mascara gave me thicker lashes. The problem I had after applying is, my lashes started clumping that I had a hard time separating it so I used an empty mascara wand to comb it. This mascara have good reviews, but I would say this is not the mascara for me.

 

Smashbox Be Legendary Liquid Lip in Mauve Wife4 mL – C$14.00
Be Legendary Liquid Lip delivers one-coat, rich saturated color in metallic and vinyl-like finishes. Its foolproof, precision tip applicator distributes product evenly and makes your lips appear more plump and full. It feels soft on comfortable on lips—never gritty.

I am in love with this lipstick! It is highly pigmented and creamy leaving my lips smooth. I like the color because it is ideal for everyday wear. I will surely buy full size once I finish this one.

 

Total Product Value: C$39.54

Amount paid for this subscription: C$12.00 + tax

How much I saved: C$27.54

 

Conclusion: This is by far my most favorite box from Topbox. The value maybe lower than the value of the box that I got previously, but I am glad that all the products that I got are something that I can use. The mascara is a miss for me this month but the rest are amazing.
