I wasn’t sure if I wanted to keep Topbox. I wasn’t impressed with my first box and I cancelled after this box was sent, I have since resubscribed. The January box wasn’t amazing but I was a lot happier with the products I received this time around.
Cost – $13.56CAD per month
1. Steve Laurant – Lilac Matte Lipstick – $22.00USD
While I don’t think the color suits my skin color, I do like the formula and I love that the brand is cruelty-free. I could easily blend this with another color to create something original or I could be adventurous and go for a completely different look to my normal day to day. Given the retail price and what I paid for the box this was well worth it considering it was full size.
2. Purlisse – Watermelon Energizing Aqua Balm – Full Size – $45.00USD
I always love trying new moisturizers, I don’t like it when my skin care routine gets old, so to spice it up everyone once in awhile is fun. Purlisse is vegan and cruelty-free and it smells great. This was only a sample size but it’s a great way to try new products, which is my jam.
3. Skin & Co Roma – Truffle Therapy Cleansing Oil – Full Size – $30.00USD
I received one of their toners in an Ipsy bags many moons ago and I loved it and this was no different. Their products are gentle on my skin and they smell really good without being overpowering. Another great thing about this brand is that it is also cruelty-free as far as I can tell.
4. ALO – Fruits & Passion – Whipped Body Cream – Grapefruit and Guava – Full Size – $13.50CAD
This body cream smells so good and it feels really nice against the skin. The full size is 200ml while the sample I received was 100ml which is pretty good. As far as I can tell it is cruelty-free, so top marks to Topbox for giving me an completely cruelty-free box this month.
I tend to be pretty positive about beauty box subscriptions, I find a lot of un-boxing videos are very negative. I think the point of them is to get to try new things and every month can’t be amazing because different strokes, you know? Topbox is a month to month subscription so I like that I can cancel if I find that I’m not getting what I want out of it but this month was great. Super happy.
