Hello again my lovelies,
It’s the time of month when all the Topbox beauty boxes (cylinders) start arriving! This is the only box I received this month that was a total surprise to me since I didn’t request a prive Topbox on the wishlist.
If you haven’t heard of Topbox it’s a Canadian subscription box containing 4-5 sample, travel and full sized products.
*Note: This post contains my Topox referral link
This month my products arrived in a cute little cylinder packed with tissue paper. My cat Ion went crazy for the tissue paper, he helped me unpack the box by pulling all the paper out with his claws and teeth. My once clean house now has paper all over it, haha!
The Product card has pricing for four items, and doesn’t include the razor that was also in the box. Huh. I like that they provide a product card though, it’s a nice touch and I find too many subscription boxes don’t take the time to send one out.
Schick Hydro Silk Razor ~$10 CAD? (Price varies by retailer)
I’m actually happy to see this in my box as this is something that I will use. I was about to add new razors to my shopping list so I get to put that off for a while. This has a moisture strip and five blades so I’m hoping this works well. I can’t find this exact packaging anywhere, on Amazon it’s normally sold with a few refills so this is kind of scaled down in terms of value. There was also a coupon for $5 off cartridge refills included.
OFRA Cosmetics Lipliner $16.60 CAD FULL SIZE!
I’ve never tried OFRA before, but I have seen it unboxed by other subscription bloggers. I received the color “Wine” and it goes with my natural lip shade fairly well. It’s just a tad darker. I don’t know if I’ve ever actually owned lip liner before (I know, shame on me) but I am really happy with this and it will get used.
Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4~in~1 Eye Adore Serum $38.50 Sample Sized
I have heard so many good things about this brand but have never had the opportunity to try it. This sample is a touch under half sized and I have converted that price from USD into CAD. This claims to hydrate, firm, brighten, and decrease puffiness. I already have a few eye serums on the go so I might be passing this on.
DDM Cosmetics Lip Gloss $12.99 FULL SIZE
I was honestly a little disappointed to get a lip gloss, it’s not really my thing because I always find that gloss get’s sticky and right now I prefer matte finishes. That being said I did try this out and found it’s very lightweight and doesn’t give off too much shine, AND there’s a little mirror on the side for on the go touch ups. Why don’t other lip products do this!? I don’t like applying lip products without a mirror because I feel like it will get all over my face, so the idea of a mirror directly on the product appeals to me. I received the shade Copacabana.
Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hair oil $26 CAD Travel Sized
The full name of this product is the Elixir Ultime Oleo-Complexe Replenishing & Beautifying Scented Oil. Gosh what a mouthful. I figured out that this is a hair oil, but I’m not entirely sure how much to use, how often, on wet hair? Dry? Tell me Kerastase!! I can’t believe that this little bottle retails for $26. On the website it’s named the Elixir Ultime Imperial Tea Travel size, I’m not sure why the product card name is different. This claims to nourish, protect, and deliver radiant, glossy, soft hair.
Here’s my swatches of the Lip Liner and gloss
Verdict: This month’s box had a value of $104.09 (give or take a few dollars for the razor) which is pretty good when I only paid $12 for it. I will be using at least three of the products in this months haul so I’ll count that as a win! I’ll be sticking with Topbox for next month’s box.
