Unboxing Topbox, April 2017

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for the surprise box.

Cake Beauty The ‘Do Gooder Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray
Full Size: $19.00 (200mL), $4.75 (50mL)

I have few sample size dry shampoos that I’ve been loving but I’m really excited to have received this one from Cake Beauty! I love Cake Beauty for soooo many reasons; they have delicious smelling products that work really well for my skin and they are a Canadian Brand. This product is also cruelty-free and vegan! I tested this out in my hair and I can confirm that this leaves absolutely no residue which is super important to me. I have brown hair so I really don’t like when some dry shampoos have a white cast.

LARITZY Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Retro Red
Full Size: $18.00, this is full size

I haven’t swatched this but I don’t have any red-toned lip liners so I’m glad to be adding this to my collection. It looks like it’ll be creamy like the description says so I’m looking forward to giving this a try. I usually love wearing lip liners and then topping them with a clear gloss for long-lasting, shiny colour.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Urban-Night
Full Size: $10.00 (14mL), this is full size

This is a beautiful deep purple that is gorgeous and edgy. For spring I tend towards more pastel and light shades but I totally rock colours like this in the summer and fall! I have a few other lacquers from China Glaze and although it’s not my favourite formula I still like wearing it once in a while.

Pureology Smooth Perfection Shampoo and Conditioner
Full Size: $20.00 (250mL) each, Sample Size: $4.00 (50mL) each

I love that this duo is designed for frizzy, colour treated hair. This has 100% vegan ingredients. The label also reads that it has antifadecomplex with camellia oil. I’m going to save this duo for my upcoming summer travels!

BONUS! Garnier Skinactive Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask and L’Oreal Hydra Genius

The L’Oreal samples are foil samples but they feel pretty full. I think you can get two uses out of each which is nice. I will probably pass these along because they are designed for normal to oily-skin. The Garnier sheet mask is an item I’m very excited to try. I love hydrating masks and this one claims to provide deep moisture for softer and more radiant skin! I’m sure I’ll try it before the end of the month so I’ll let you know my thoughts in my next empties post!

My Thoughts
I got a decent amount of hair products – between the shampoo and conditioner duo and the dry shampoo but I’m happy with them! I’m also happy to have a new lip pencil which I will probably wear a lot in the summer and a nice nail lacquer! Total value of my box: $40.75 (not including bonus items).

What did you think of Topbox this month? What was in your bag?

Lots of Love,

  1. I’ve only ever tried Cake’s loose dry shampoo which is tinted brown and I really like it (although slightly messy). I’ve yet to try their spray version – I’ll have to try it!
    I’ve never tried Pureology hair care but I have a friend who swears by them for her colour treated hair.
    And oooh, I’ve been hearing such good things about the L’Oreal Moisture Bomb Sheet Mask! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

    • Oh I’ve never seen Cake’s loose dry shampoo, with the brown tint I’d probably really like it. The spray is nice, I like my hair smelling like a vanilla cupcake! lol!
      Good to know about Pureology, I colour my hair all the time so hopefully it’ll work well for me. It’s always good to know that someone else has tried and loves a product.
      The mask is pretty cool! I will probably get it again. Very hydrating. I’ll give a proper review on the blog at the end of the month!
