Topbox - April 2016

Hey guys! First I want to apologize for the lack of posts. I have a ton of items that I'm testing but I have to wait to put my reviews up for, however with my boyfriend's seasonal business starting back up, I'm busy every single day. Seriously, 7 days a week and like 12 hour days. By the time we get home and eat, its almost bed time. I hope I can get a few posts scheduled ahead of time because I'm really missing blogging. I just hate having to use my phone to type out some reviews because the browser version is annoying and the blogger app just isn't good. And I have some items to share with you!

Here are the Prive box options for April

The options included:
Estee Lauder - includes eye serum, mascara and anti-aging cream
Deborah Lippman Misty Morning or 12th Street Rag Nail Polish
Nova Scotia Fisherman - includes 2 mini soaps, mint lip balm and x-treme lip care sea salt and caramel
Neostrata - includes acne clear clarifying solution, skin renewal peel solution, moisture infusion cream, acne clear clarifying gel cleanser
Model Co - BB Cream in Medium and Shine Ultra Lip Gloss in Fairy Floss
MaskerAide - includes 4 pre-party prep sheet masks
Schwarzkopf Professional - includes BC Colour Freeze Rich Shampoo, BC Colour Freeze CC Cream, BC Colour Freeze Treatment

I was tempted to try either the Neostrata box, or MaskerAide.. but I decided to test my fate at a normal Topbox.

This month I decided to opt in for their monthly add on. For $10 more, Topbox will send you another full size product in addition to your monthly subscription. You can add on as many as you'd like, and it's $10 for each additional item.

I feel a little mixed on this months bag. Let's break down what was included.

Ofra - Lip Pencil in Wine
I think this was an item that everyone received in their Topbox. I thought the colour would be a little more universal for all skin tones, but this one looks a little dark. I haven't swatched it or anything, but it looks dark on the pencil. I think I may trade it or put it up for sale.

Ciate - Paint Pots in Roller Coaster
This is a pretty sparkley nail polish. It's got a blue base with a silver sparkle. It doesn't dry completely flat, but its fun and I can see myself using this, especially on my toes.

PurLisse - Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum
My current eye cream is starting to get old, so I really need to replace it. This one came at a good time.

Revlon - Style Masters Hairspray
I don't use hairspray too often, and I have a few to still use up from other past subscription bags. I'm sure that will eventually use this, but I'm not in a rush to give it a try. I don't find hairspray to be an exciting product to be a part of a monthly sub, but maybe that's just me.

Schick - Hydro Silk Razor
Another item I don't find exciting in subscription boxes are razors. I mean, women's razors are pretty expensive and I will use this, but there's nothing exciting about it. It will be interesting to see if it really is as moisturizing as the packaging says. It claims to have a water activated serum.

** Bonus item! **
Philosophy - Purity - One Step Facial Cleansing Wipes
Cleansing wipes are always welcomed by me. I almost always use the two step method when cleansing my face, but there are times I will still have some stubborn eye makeup left behind. I find wipes helpful to get that last bit off my face. I haven't tried these ones yet just because I'm finishing off another brand but I'm excited to give these a try.

*I purchased all of these products with my own money, all of these opinions are my own*
