Topbox April 2016 Unboxing

Topbox Unboxing April 2016

It’s the time of month when all the Topbox beauty boxes (cylinders) start arriving! Topbox is the only box I received this month that was a total surprise to me since I didn’t request a privé Topbox on the wish list.

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!

Topbox Unboxing April 2016 - Product Card

The Product card has pricing for four items and doesn’t include the sponsored razor in the box. I like that Topbox provides a product card, it’s a nice touch. I find too many subscription boxes don’t take the time to send one out.

Topbox Unboxing April 2016 - Sponsored Item

Schick Hydro Silk Razor ~$10 CAD? (Price varies by retailer) 
I’m 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 can put that off for a while now. It has a moisture strip and five blades and sells on Amazon with a few cartridge refills so this single razor is scaled down in terms of value. Included was a coupon for $5 off cartridge refills.

Topbox Unboxing April 2016 - Ofra Lip Liner

OFRA Cosmetics Lipliner $16.60 CAD FULL SIZE!
I’ve haven’t had the opportunity to try OFRA before, but I’ve seen it unboxed by other subscription bloggers and am excited for it. I received the colour “Wine” and it goes with my natural lip shade fairly well. I don’t know if I’ve ever owned a lip liner before (I know, shame on me) but now that I have one I know it will get used.

Topbox Unboxing April 2016 Pur~Lisse Eye Cream

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus 4~in~1 Eye Adore Serum $38.50CAD Sample Sized
I’ve heard so many good things about this brand but haven’t had the opportunity to try it. This sample is just under half sized which means the value is incredibly high. This eye Cream claims to hydrate, firm, brighten, and decrease puffiness.

DDM Cosmetics Lip Gloss $12.99 FULL SIZE 
I was a little disappointed to get a lip gloss, it’s not really my thing. Despite this I tried the gloss and was happy to find that it’s lightweight and non sticky. DDM Lipgloss has 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. What a mouthful! I’m not entirely sure how of this hair oil to use or how often to apply it. Do I apply to Wet hair or Dry? Tell me Kerastase! The Kerastase website calls this oil the “Elixir Ultime Imperial Tea Travel Size”, so I’m not sure why the product card name is different. This claims to nourish, protect, and deliver radiant, glossy, soft hair.

Final Thoughts

This month’s box had a value of $104.09 which is amazing when I only paid $12. I’ll be using a minimum of three products out of five. If you’re interested in signing up for Topbox you can do so HERE! Check out my other Topbox Reviews!
