Topbox Review - April 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box
What is it? Topbox
How Much? $12 per month, shipping included
What’s in it? 4 deluxe beauty samples
My April Topbox arrived today, right on schedule. Topbox ships on the 15th of the month, as of January 2014. Despite pushing shipping back by one week, their shipping still runs like clockwork. I received my shipping notice yesterday and my box was delivered to my door this morning. I selected the regular box this month.
As soon as I unwrapped the packaging I could smell peppermint. The product card indicates soap is included so that must be the culprit. I love peppermint so this is good.
At first I was disappointed with this colour. In the bottle it looks like mud. Not very fun for spring. After applying a very quick coat to test it out, I actually really like it. I'm going to do a full mani later today!
The source of the minty smell! I used to feel indifferent about receiving soap but now I really enjoy sampling all sorts of fancy bars that can't be found in the drug store.
I've received this sample before, from the Murale Fab & Free promo. Back then it came in a little 5ml vial. This foil packet is pretty disappointing, but even this puny 2ml sample is worth over $20! I wouldn't normally count a foil packet towards the box value but Prevage is like liquid gold. A full size runs $155 for 15ml. I may try to pour this sample into my existing Prevage vial to make it more useful.
My April Topbox contained four products valued at $48.10. I paid $13.44 for this box ($12 plus tax) so it's a great value. This isn't my favourite Topbox, but I will use everything I received so it's a win. I think the nail polish is my favourite item this month and I can't wait to rock my Grey Cashmere mani at work tomorrow!
What did you receive in your April Topbox?
