Topbox for March!

My Newest Video is on Topbox for the month of March! It's also, coincidentally my first Topbox ever!
Topbox is a Canadian Monthly Subscription Beauty Box. It is $10.00 CAD per month; You don't choose a one month, three month, or yearly subscription; Topbox renews each month, and you can cancel at any time.

My Top Box for March looked like this------------>  
It came with a cute paper tape label, that I just had to keep! and it was all wrapped up in Kraft Paper, that brown, card-like, package paper. Unwrapped it's an adorable reusable tube, wrapped in a delightful wall-paper esque Pseudo-Victorian print in Violet.

Inside my March Topbox I found a cute square note card that reads

"It's been half a year! And we couldn't have done it without you. (Thank you)

In addition to your Topbox of 4 deluxe samples, we have included a 5th bonus sample from a new everyday brand that we love as well.

Here's to Discovering more beauty,

xoxo
Topbox"

Inside my Topbox, there is a note card detailing exactly what the products intended use, the full size amount and price.

The first sample I pulled out was REDKEN Color Extend shampoo and conditioner, each at 10 ml, and there were two of each! I received 40 ml of REDKEN product for about $2.00. It claims to add moisture, volume, strength, softness and daily protection to your hair--I can't wait! I love high end hair products! especially for cheap! The full size shampoo contains 300 ml and retails at $15.00; The full size conditioner contains 250 ml and it retails for $17.00!

The second product I fished out was the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes. Now if you follow PunkChyaz on YouTube or her blog, then you've heard nothing but wonderful things about Simple! Chyaz is the Simple Spokeswoman; and her skin is glorious! The blurb reads "The UK's #1 Skincare range is now here. Pro-Vitamin B5 enriched facial wipes refresh your skin with moisture and also remove waterproof mascara" how cool is that? The full size has 25 wipes and goes for $10.99. These smell amazing by the way, just nice and kind of aloe-y.

Next I pulled out the mark. Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain in Frilly Frou Frou. It is a gorgeous mango colour with a golden shimmer; it goes on like a delicious, sweet/minty tasting gloss that smells the same, and wears to a full-bodied stain-that claims to last hours and hours! I can vouch for that, as I've worn this product all day and needed to reapply it just a few times throughout. This is one of the full size samples (2.7 ml) and it comes in a clicky-pen like brush applicator. I usually have huge problems with products in these containers right from the get-go, but thus far not-a-one. This retails for $12.00 and I will most likely be purchasing this product again!

The next thing I grabbed from the box was the mark. Nailed It Trend Mini Lacquers in Violet Daze and Tickled Pink, described as a shocking purple and a thrilling lilac; these colour's are very appropriate for spring, and are "great for on-the-go" These are the other full size sample in the box, which is a tad disappointing--due to the fact that mark. is the Avon off-shoot, and it's fairly cost effective, compared to the other brands Topbox carries such as Benefit and Yves Saint Laurent--But, I digress. These are still super-duper cute, and I can't wait to use them! These retail for $8.00.

Lastly, but not least-ly! was the MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash in Extra Black-which is exclusive to SEPHORA. The Card says..."Smoky Lash's formula is rich in ultra-fine mineral pigments to create the perfect smoky look. It's ultra-wide and dense new generation brush holds a maximum amount of product for instant spectacular lashes. The Brush on this is super scrumptious, it holds so much product because of it's thickness. I cannot wait to try it out, I've heard both positives and negatives about this particular mascara; The full size (7ml) sells for $24.00 my sample is 3ml and I feel like that's the perfect amount of mascara; for a girl who owns and uses more than 20 full size mascaras--they don't have a very long shelf life, 3 months, tops! So it seems silly to me to package over 3 or 4 ml in a mascara tube, especially one that costs $24.00. I won't pay that much for something that lasts as little as 3 months, IMHO!

In My Humble Opinion (IMHO) Topbox is a really neat service, it's fully customize-able, unlike some other boxes; it contains a mixture of deluxe hair, skin care and cosmetic products. I shant be cancelling my subscription any time soon:)

What do you think about Topbox? what monthly beauty boxes do you subscribe to?
