Topbox April 2013 Regular Box Unboxing

Woohoo! I am loving that Topbox is shipping from Vancouver now. It was sent out yesterday and I just received it. This month’s Prive options were Elizabeth Arden and Aveda, which both did not appeal to me so I opted for a regular box. Here’s what I got:

Oooh, what could be inside?

Topbox April 2013 - KMS Quick Blow Dry, Elizabeth Arden Makeup Remover, Michael Todd Jojoba Facial Scrub, Boxx Cosmetics Travel Foundation Brush

Topbox April 2013 – KMS Quick Blow Dry, Elizabeth Arden Makeup Remover, Michael Todd Jojoba Facial Scrub, Boxx Cosmetics Travel Foundation Brush

KMS California Freeshape Quick Blow Dry – 30mL ($2.81) Aw man, this is a dupe for me. I got this in my December box I believe. I didn’t particularly like it as I don’t feel like it made any difference in how long it took me to dry my hair.

Elizabeth Arden All Gone Eye and Lip Makeup Remover – 50mL ($12) Hm, this isn’t overly exciting. The reason I didn’t pick the Elizabeth Arden prive box was because of the fact that makeup remover was one of the products that I didn’t want to be receiving more of, because I already have so many sample bottles from various boxes and GWPs. I guess it’ll be nice to try out eventually though, I’ve never used this before.

Michael Todd True Organics Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub – 30mL ($5.40) I’m happy to be receiving this! The full size is only 100mL, so this is a pretty generously sized sample. I’ve never tried a charcoal mask/face wash but have always wanted to so this will definitely be used soon!

Boxx Cosmetics Travel Size Foundation Brush – Full Size ($28) Wow, I can’t believe this brush retails for so much! I already have a foundation brush, but I’ll try this one out to see how it compares.

Total value: $48.21

Overall, I’m glad I chose the regular box over the Prive boxes. There’s something just so fun about getting surprises in the mail. I’m a little annoyed that I’m getting a dupe though, since Topbox promises to never send duplicates so I will be emailing about that.

What did you get in yours?

UPDATE: Rats, I realized that I got the KMS in my Winter Luxe Box, not Topbox. Oh well!

  1. Oh gosh, Id love to get the foundation brush! Im so scared of my box because there are so many variations :( If I get the lip brush Ill cry lol. Oh no! You got the KMS before? I got it too and Im scared they are going to send it again on purpose because Its my last month.

    • Oh no! I hope they don’t send it to you then :( Haha, yeah I’m glad I at least got a bigger brush. I’ll cross my fingers for you! Hopefully you get the Cake :D

  2. I think I’m getting my box tomorrow and I’m really excited! I opted for either Elizabeth Arden, Aveda or the regular box – I have no idea what I’ll get! I’m kind of hoping I don’t get the regular box because I also received the Kms product already (not from Topbox!). I’m most intrigued by the facial scrub, it seems really good!

    • Oooh, that’s super exciting! I’ve seen pictures and even though I originally didn’t want the EA box, the foundation compact looks really nice! I haven’t tried the scrub yet but it’s definitely what I was most excited to receive

  3. I got the “made by Cake” handcream.
    It is the cake line that is supposed to be cheaper and for Target Canada :)
    good if ur obsessed with Cake creams….I am not and kind of would have loved a makeup brush.
    My favorite cream brand is Deep Steep it is all natural and can be bought at Vitacost quite cheaply and SkincareRx.

    • Oooh lucky!! I wish I had gotten that instead. Haha I am super obsessed with Cake products. If only we were neighbours, we could have swapped :p Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll have to look into those two products!

  4. Canadian Beauty Blogger – Beauty Subscriptions Makeup Reviews Hair and Nails – April 2013 Top Box!
