Topbox Review - February 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box
What is it? Topbox
How Much? $12 per month, shipping included
What’s in it? 4 deluxe beauty samples
It's Topbox time! This month my Topbox shipped on February 14th and arrived February 17th. I opted for a regular box.
My January box included a duplicate item from a previous month, so I was promised an extra product this month.
At first look, I was excited. So many awesome looking products! I could tell right away the value this month was going to be huge.
This FULL SIZE Deborah Lippman nail lacquer is my replacement product. Last month I received a set of Belvada tweezers, which was a dupe to a set I received in August. Topbox is usually great about not including duplicates so when I e-mailed about the duplicate, they offered to send an extra product in my February box. I had no idea it would be something like this! The colour is "Since I Fell For You" and it's a gorgeous shimmering red. The retail value is $20 (CDN), although you can find it for less all over the interwebs as it's from an older collection.
I love the packaging on this product. It's a illuminating primer similar that, I think, could be comparable to Benefit's High Beam.
This product is described as a 'legendary beauty secret'. Use it to add shine to eyelids, cheeks, and lips, or shape eyebrows for the perfect arch. Read here for more uses. Interesting indeed! A full size is 50ml and retails for $25.
I previously received the Zyderma Clarifying Cleanser in my September 2013 Topbox. I can't say I was impressed by the product. This product is available in 30ml, 60ml, and 120ml sizes for $25, $59.95, and $99.95 respectively.
I love double duty products like this, but this double ended mascara & lip gloss is not actually available for sale. It's a promo item that Estee Lauder includes in their bonus bags. A full size of each product is 6ml and retails for $26.
My February Topbox included 4 products, plus a bonus product due to an issue with the January box. The retail value of the four products from February is a whopping $117.83, not including the bonus nail polish. I only paid $12 plus tax for this box ($13.44 in BC). This is the highest value Topbox I have ever received so I am super impressed with it. Product wise, I love the mascara/lip gloss duo. It will be great for travel and on-the-go. I'm looking forward to trying to So Susan and Elizabeth Arden products.
What did you get in your February Topbox?
