Topbox Review: April 2013

Hello April Topbox! This month’s topbox got to my door in record time – I *think* it may be because Topbox is shipping out of Richmond for some of their customers so that means my box arrives within 3 days instead of the usual 5-6 days. This month also marks the return of the regular topbox – the Elizabeth Arden prive box didn’t do anything for me so I decided against putting it on my wishlist.

This month’s topbox came with 4 products and I only have knowledge of 2 of them so it’s nice to get some brands that I don’t recognize.

  • Boxx Cosmetics Travel Size Brush
  • Elizabeth Arden All Gone Eye and Lip Makeover Remover (50ml)
  • KMS California Freeshape Quick Blow Dry (30ml)
  • Michael Todd True Organics Tropical Fruit Scrub (30ml)
Boxx Cosmetics Travel Size Brush

Boxx Cosmetics Travel Size Brush

First up was the Boxx Cosmetics travel size brush and I was quite pleased with this since I’ve realized I don’t own mini size brushes to travel with and I end up taking my huge brushes with me every time I go away. This one is definitely getting tossed into my carry-on bag so I can be prepared for the next time I head out of town.

I don’t know why all my boxes send me eye makeup remover – there must be something in my profile that says I need copious amounts of makeup remover! I have so much makeup remover in my sample stash that this one will just join the rest of the crowd but it’s not like I can’t use it – it just won’t happen any time soon.

The KMS California sample is very interesting to me and I am very excited to test this one out. I’ve been keeping my hair long for a while now and when I oversleep in the mornings, the one thing that kills any chance of me getting out the door close to on time is blow drying my hair. It takes forever (or what seems to be forever) to dry my hair so any product that promises to cut down the drying time is awesome in my books (I will have to report back on how this works next month).

As a huge fan of skincare products – this sample really caught my attention because I’ve never heard of it before. I like scrubs and I test out a lot in hopes of finding the perfect scrub for my skin – I’ve come close to the “right” one but I imagine that there is always something even better for me and maybe the Michael Todd will be it?

So What Would Argenplath Pay?

My topbox remains at $12 + tax and the value of this month’s box is $56.09, so this is still a very good value.

  • Boxx Cosmetics Travel Size Brush ($34 according to the Boxx Cosmetics website)
  • Elizabeth Arden All Gone Eye and Lip Makeover Remover ($12)
  • KMS California Freeshape Quick Blow Dry ($4.69)
  • Michael Todd True Organics Tropical Fruit Scrub ($5.40)

And most importantly, getting brands I haven’t heard of before is exactly the reason I subscribe to beauty boxes so I’m pretty happy about another good month.
