FEBRUARY, MARCH, AND APRIL TOPBOXES

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT'S TOPBOX?

 

Topbox is an affordable Canada based beauty box subscription service that only cost you $12 plus tax every month.

 

They charge you in advance usually on the 20th of each month; then, they will shipped out your box that contains four deluxe beauty samples from top selected beauty brands on the 15th of next month, and they will email the product information a few days before you actual box showed up. 

 

You might prefer to fill their surveys and choose your Prive Topbox, but I usually stick with the regular box which I have no idea what's in the box. That way make me feel like I am receiving a special gift.

 

 

 

FEBRUARY BOX

Paid: $12

Retail Total Value: $61

 

LARITZY COSMETICS EYE PENCIL IN SHIMMER, 1g - $18 

✭✭✭✩✩

This shimmer pencil looked gorgeous in my waterline, but the pigment is very light. I was expected for a metallic shimmer silver colour, and I was kind of disappointed. I am not a big fan of this product, but some people might like this. Made in China.

 

CAKE BEAUTY HEAVY CREAM TRAVEL INTENSELY SMOOTHING BODY BALM, 30ml full size - $9

✭✭✭✩✩

This body balm is made in Canada, cruelty free and vegan friendly. I thought it's too thick at first, but it absorbed very well, and I like the cute packaging. Smelled delicious, however, the scent was too strong and very hard to squeezed out of the tube. I don't want to keep this body balm, and I will give it to a friend who like sweet dessert.

 

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD CLEARING TREATMENT MASQUE, 15g - $27

✭✭✭✭✩

I have a full sized product my own, and I was super surprised when I received in my beauty box. I have oily combination skin, and the results are always amazing. I still remember when I first couple times used this masque and my skin felt burn and very hurt, but I can tell my skin feel more smoother and glower after each use. Made in USA.

 

WELLA OIL REFLECTIONS LUMINOUS INSTANT SHAMPOO, 50ml - $4

✭✭✭✭✩

This shampoo is made in Germany with white tea extract. Smelled very light and clean. Foamed up well and easy to rinsed off. I like the elegant packaging. Only one downside is I can't use this shampoo alone. My hair is dry like straw, I have to followed up with the conditioner.

 

WELLA OIL REFLECTIONS LUMINOUS INSTANT CONDITIONER, 30ml - $3

✭✭✭✭✩

I like this packaging as well. Made in Germany with white tea extract, but plus camellia sees oil to keep your hair moist. My hair felt happier and smoother after every time I used this conditioner. Smelled really great. The clean floral scents lasted on my hair for at least one day. I am thinking about buying it now.

 

 

 

MARCH BOX

Paid: $12 + $10 = $22

Retail Total Value: $50 + $25 = $75

 

SMASHBOX BE LEGENDARY LIQUID LIP IN MAUVE WIFE, 8ml full size - $28

✭✭✭✭✩

I'm obsessed with this full coverage liquid lipstick although it came without box and only B57 stamped on the bottom. When I tried on, this colour looked stunning and made my face looked brighter. I received tons of compliments while I wore this lipstick. It's stayed on my lips for long hours, as long as I wasn't eating or drinking anything. Cruelty free. Missed one star because the sticky feeling and smeared on the cup.

 

CAKE BEAUTY SWEET MINT & CREAM ULTRA NOURISHING HAND CREAM, 60ml full size - $6

✭✭✭✩✩

Another strong smelling, but cruelty free and vegan friendly product. This hand cream was perfectly hydrated. Made super naturally with shea butter, coconut oil and aloe vera in Canada. However, the scents made me nauseated, and I don't want to keep this product.

 

LANEIGE MULTIBERRY YOGURT REPAIRING MASK, 20ml - $8.50

✭✭✭✩✩

I just finished three full-size. It's a good product. A treat for sensitive dry skin and will immediately improve the softness of your skin, but I don't want to use this again. I liked the berry and yogurt scent as very beginning, but after I used this mask over three times a week, I hate it now. Made in Korea.

 

BENEFIT COSMETICS BEDGAL! 36 HOUR FULL-BLAST VOLUME MASCARA, 3g - $10.50

✭✭✭✩✩

This mascara made my lashes looked like false lashes, which is super long and volume, but it went super clumpy once you build more coats. Fell on to under eyes after few hours. I completed didn't enjoy my smudged eye makeup that day, and I am not going to purchase this. Made in France.

 

THE BEAUTY CROP GLOW MILK LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER, 8ml full size - $25

✭✭✭✭✩

This highlighter is perfect with tons of benefits. I like the cute packaging, special wired nail polish look, and subtle shimmer. It's easy to apply and blending well. Cruelty free and vegan, no mineral oils. Made in China. Nourished with coconut and smelled good like a vanilla milkshake, but it's too sweet. This is my first liquid highlighter, and I would love to add it into my daily makeup routine for sure.

 

 

 

APRIL BOX

Paid: $12 + $12 = $24

Retail Total Value: $26 + $39 = $65

 

NUDE BY NATURE PERFECTING PRIMER, 15ml - $16

✭✭✭✭✭

One of the best primer I have used. This primer has a silicone free formula. No greasy feeling and moisturized my skin. Worked well with my other skin care and makeup favourites. Made in Australia. It smelled fresh and herbal. I will add this in my makeup routine for sure.

 

GLOW FOR A CAUSE LIP LOVE NATURAL LIP BALM, 4.25g full size - $6

✭✭✭✭✩

I like this lip balm because it's made from natural ingredients that I all recognized and no strong scents. My lips felt softer and moisturized after used this product. Made in USA. Cruelty free and vegan friendly. The only one thing I dislike is the packaging looks really cheap.

 

ELIZABETH ARDEN SUPERSTART PROBIOTIC CLEANSER WHIP TO CLAY, 5ml - $1.5

✭✭✭✭✩

I applied this cleanser dry on my face, and then waited just one minute to dry down. After warm water cleaned the clay away, my face felt lifted and refreshed. This cleanser maintained the perfect balance for my skin, and the scent is light. Made in USA. The sample is very small.

 

MAC COSMETICS IN ENTREME DIMENSION LASH MASCARA, 1ml - $2.25

✭✭✭✩✩

I never tried any MAC mascara before. It's worked just fine on me. My lashes looked fuller and curler in a natural way. It was easy to apply and removed. However, the mascara came off clumpy and lasted in very short time. I got flakes after only three hours. Made in Canada.

 

GARNIER WHOLE BLENDS OAT DELICACY SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER, 10ml + 10ml - $0.25

✭✭✭✭✩

I have a full sized shampoo and conditioner my own. My hair is very dry. Those products made with oat milk and rice cream extracts. With each wash, my hair stayed clean for several days, and felt very hydrated and moisturized. The scent is very strong. Paraben Free.

 

AVRYBEAUTY SHEA BUTTER HAND CREAM,45ml - $3

✭✭✭✭✩

Smelled nice, the scent was really light. Not a thick and greasy cream. This silky and radiant moisturizer made my hands felt smoother. I like the packaging which feels luxurious, but the price is affordable. So far, it's my favourite hand cream received from Topbox. Made in USA.

 

LARITZY COSMETICS LIP PENCIL IN RETRO RED, 1g full sized - $18

✭✭✭✭✩

The retro red is a basic lip colour, which is very beautiful. It's a traditional designed wooden lip pencil, and was easy to apply and removed. It wasn't a long lasting pencil. Paraben free. Cruelty free. Made in China with highly pigment. I would love to use this product, but not willing to purchase it my own.


ESSIE NAIL COLOUR IN #764 BIKINI SO TEENY, 13.5ml full size - $9.5

✭✭✭✩✩

I just want to be honest with everyone, I will never put this product on my nails. The colour itself seems very pretty. It's a nice milky blue with shimmer. The brush looks like a perfect size for my nails. However, I go for Shellac manicure regularly, so I won't switch back to traditional nail polish. I will probably give this to my friend.

 

SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL SHAPER PLUS HAIRSPRAY, 38.5g travel size - $8.5

✭✭✭✭✩

It's been a while since the last time I bought a hairspray. This product held my hair very well though the day. My hair was touchable with shiny finish. Smelled pleasant and felt very good. I will definitely use this spray and bring it with me while travelling. Made in USA.
