Unboxing: Topbox, April 2016

 Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items
I can’t believe that it’s the middle of April already! I was really shocked when I saw my Topbox in the mailbox. Is it just me or do you feel like time whipped by so quickly.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly subscription service that introduces customers to beauty items. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box in which all the products are from one brand and you know what they are.

This month I swapped my surprise for the Estée Lauder Prive box.

What I Received

1. Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum with Synchronized Complex II

Full Size: $75.00 (15 mL), Sample Size: $40.00 (8 mL)

I really like the packing of the boxes. Maybe it’s because I never purchase Estée Lauder skincare I never really see how nicely they are put together. I like that I was sent two samples of this so that I can get a good feel for how I like it. I have received other samples from Estée Lauder before that I was super happy with. The Advance Night Repair serum is one of my faves. This uses that same technology but is geared for the eyes. I like that this is a pump which will make application much easier.

2. Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Creme

Full Size: $55.00 (15 mL), Sample Size: $18.33 (5 mL)

This is a moisturizer that is supposed to reduce the signs of aging. More cream, more cream! I really can’t get enough.

3. Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara in Extreme Black

Full Size: $29.00 (8 mL), Sample Size: $10.55 (2.8 mL)

I don’t think I’ve ever tried Estée Lauder mascara so we will see how I like it. The cone shape brush is interesting; it’s a really long applicator so we will see how well I can apply it to my lashes without making a mess.

BONUS! Schick Hydro Silk 5 Blades

Full Size: $17.99

This was sitting outside my mesh bag so I think it was a bonus item given out to all subscribers. I don’t use Schick razers so I’m happy I get one to try out. This has a water activated moisturizing serum in the area surrounding the blades to add hydration as you shave which is great because I don’t use shaving cream on my legs. This also came with a $5.00 off coupon for refills and the box also came with a $4.00 off coupon for refills which is awesome!

My Thoughts

I chose the items in the box this month and I’m really happy with them. Estée Lauder is expensive which is we I opted to receive this box. I also like that they added the Schick razer as a bonus item, it is really perfect for right now and I’m excited to use it. Total value of my box, $86.87

What did you get in your Topbox this month?

Lots of Luv,

  1. Wow, that’s a generous sample of the EL eye serums – those 2 will honestly last you months!
    I really like that EL mascara – I was surprised how much volume it gave. No one talks about that mascara much but I guess it’s quite pricey.
    I had no idea you could choose your own items in Topbox. Hrmm maybe I could be swayed into trying a subscription box… I always rant about the items in beauty boxes but if I was the master of my own destiny…! 😉

    • I really like the ability to choose a Prive box over a surprise, sometimes there are really good options (every month you can choose between 4-5 prives or a surprise), I like being able to go “yep, I want that” and pick a box instead, “ugh! what is this crap!” when it’s a surprise, haha!

      I’m soooo excite about the EL serum and cream. Good to know the mascara is good!

  2. I received Shhwarzhopf hair products for my Prive box. They work very well. You EL products look awesome. I love that brand! I received facial wipes for my $10 surprise item.
