Hello beautiful people! Yesterday I received my February Topbox, if you’re not sure what Topbox is, it’s a sample service similar to Birchbox or Glossybox. It’s around 13$ a month and you get 4 or 5 samples of different beauty products! They also promote wish list boxes, where you can pick a box that has one specific brand as opposed to different samples from different brands that come in the regular Topbox.
February was my second month receiving a Topbox, in January I got my wish list top box which was a Benefit Cosmetics box, I wasn’t OVERLY impressed with that box as I had tried most of the products it came with, but it was nice to get some travel/handbag sized versions of a few of my favourite benefit products.
This month I received the regular Topbox with came with 4 products as well as a coupon!
First thing was a full sized Essie nail polish which is called Head Mistress and it’s a gorgeous red polish. I like this one because it’s not dark red like the colours that were really trendy throughout the holidays and winter months, but this is a light enough red that it will be really cute to wear for the rest of the winter and going into spring before pastel colours become really popular.
Next was a So Susan lip & cheek sublime stain. I had never heard of this brand before getting this box so I did a little bit of research. They’re a company from the UK that primarily focus on anti-aging skin care and cosmetics, I’ll link their website at the bottom of the post if you’re interested in checking out their products. I wore this lip stain today and it’s a really gorgeous pink colour that has great stain power and has lasted pretty much all morning. It’s got a really buttery texture and is nice and hydrating as well. It says on the packaging that it’s hypoallergenic, and it is fragrance free so If you’re sensitive this product is great. I definitely think this is going to be a handbag must throughout spring and summer for me.
This product is not something that is new to me but I am so stoked to have a smaller size of it! And it’s the Elizabeth Arden Eight hour cream. I have the jar of this on my bed side table and I apply this EVERYWHERE I have dry skin, I put it on my lips before I go to bed when they’re feeling really chapped and dry, and I wake up with the softest lips ever. The Topbox came with the original formula that has a pretty distinct smell, but you can get a hold of a fragrance free version. A lot of people don’t like the smell of the original but I don’t mind it, you can find this cream in so many different sizes and forms which I think is pretty cool. This is definitely taking a permanent place in my purse for the rest of the cold months!
The final product I got in my box was an Epic Blend lip balm in the Hemp Coconut flavour. This stuff smells like a Pina Colada, it’s so delicious, just makes me want to eat it all. I had never heard of this brand either, so again I did my research, I believe they’re a North American company as their prices are in dollars on their website.
I’ve worn this a couple of times and I do find it’s very moisturizing, and like I said it smells divine. The cool thing about these lip balms is that they have so many different kinds; they have a hemp line, a vegan line, and an intensive moisture line. The flavours they offer are cool as well; they have hemp chocolate rum, or a vegan pineapple mint. I’ll add the link at the bottom of the post and you can check them out! Over all I’m really excited to continue using this as my day to day lip balm and maybe purchase some other ones!
My box also came with a 25% off coupon for Epic Blend which is a nice touch for when I want to try some other flavours.
So that’s everything I got in my February Topbox, let me know in the comments if you want me to do a breakdown of these every month or if you’re subscribed to a sample service that you’re absolutely loving!
until next time, xoxo
