April in Edmonton has been beautiful! It’s been a sunny and dare I say it Spring like month, so this month’s Topbox is actually right on point. I am pretty excited about this box since it has some of my favorite things.
April’s Topbox Included:
- LA Splash Diamond Lipgloss in Sensational (Full Size – 6ml)
- Essie Mini Nail Lacquer in Blossom Dandy (5ml)
- Vichy Capital Soleil SPF 50 (3ml)
- NeoStrata Skin Renewal Peel Solution (20ml)
- Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 (59ml)
As a huge proponent of sun safety, seeing the two sunscreen products in this month’s box makes me a happy camper. I think the Hawaiian Tropic might have been an add on to everyone’s boxes since it is not listed on my Topbox card, but nonetheless, I am glad to see it. I like the Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen and have used it in the past year and it is a decent formula that isn’t overly greasy and smells really nice. I like these small sizes since they are great for travelling and also great to keep in my purse for those days I need a sunscreen touch-up. The Vichy Capital Soleil isn’t a brand of sunscreen I have used before, but it looks like a good lightweight lotion for the face so I will definitely be using this as the weather warms up and as Edmonton’s ridiculously long sunny summer days come around. The LA Splash diamond lipgloss looks ok to me – I think it will be a nice lipgloss for the summer when you don’t want anything too over the top but just a nice shine. I don’t know how often I will use it, but I am sure if I choose not to, one of my friends will probably be willing to take it from me. As much as I love nail polish and Essie products, the Blossom Dandy is straight up the wrong colour for me. It is a light blue with a hint of green, but pastels are 100% not for me. This colour clashes awfully with my skin, but I have a friend who has already said she likes it and would be more than happy to take it off my hands! The NeoStrata Skin Renewal Peel Solution is the most interesting product to me and I am very excited to try this one out. Lately, my skin has been freaking out over the season change and I think this might be a nice product to help even things out.
So What Would Argenplath Pay?
As usual, I paid $12.60 but I realize that unless you’re in Alberta, you’re probably paying a little bit more since we don’t have a provincial sales tax. Regardless, I think this price is still quite good for what you’re getting. The majority of the value from this month’s box does come from the NeoStrata Skin Renewal Peel Solution, so if I wasn’t really into it (but I totally am!), the box might not be as awesome.
