May 2016 Topbox - Review and Unboxing

TopBox is a Canadian Beauty Box Subscription - for $12 CDN a month with free shipping, you will receive 4 deluxe sample size or full size products. You fill out a beauty profile and generally receive products based on what you have identified in the profile. Also, every month you have the option to wish for a "prive" box, which is a box that focuses on one brand or product for the whole box.

TopBox is a Canadian company and only ships to Canada. There is usually a month or two waitlist for this subscription. 

For May, I requested a regular Topbox - here is a look at what I received:

I'm not thrilled at first with the look of this bag - but, I will give it a chance! 
Here is a closer look at the products in the bag:

The Face Shop Collagen Pomegranate Pack ~ sample size 1 oz for $4.05 (full size is 3.7 oz for $15.00). Collagen Pomegranate Pack nourishes skin and improves its elasticity. Its light texture quickly penetrates to firm and revitalize skin.

I am happy to see this - I do really like sleeping packs! And, I am happy with products from The Face Shop so this is great! Surprisingly for the amount of items I have from The Face Shop, I have not tried this one yet! 

Novex Brazilian Keratin Deep Conditioning Hair Mask ~ sample size 3.5 oz for $1.70 (full size is 35 oz for $16.99). Novex Brazilian Keratin Deep Conditioning Hair Mask is an enhanced treatment to restore smoothness and deep repair all types of hair. This product is enriched with Vitamin E and the most genuine Brazilian Keratin. Recommended for dull, dry and frizzy hair.

The reviews on this hair mask are great - hair masks are generally not products that I buy for myself but I am happy to use this.

Pur~lisse BB Tinted Moist Cream SPF 30 ~ travel size 10ml for $10.00. Your beauty balm that glides on like tinted moisturizer with all the age-defying, coverage, sunscreen benefits of an foundation and BB cream! Featuring our exclusive Asian Herb extracts complex, Chamomile & Artemisia soothes skin while Sugar Maple improves skin's appearance and retains moisture to create a gorgeous & glowing complexion.

I think this is actually pretty great for Spring/Summer when people are looking to lighten up their skincare routine. This doesn't have a shade on it, but from the website I think it is a medium. That may not work for everyone, but it should work for my skintone! 

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara ~ sample size 0.13 oz for $16.96 (full size is 0.23 oz for $30.00). A precision mascara that adds volume, length, and curl. 

This is a great size sample, and while I have a ton of mascara, I love mascara samples! I don't think I have tried this mascara before, so that is also great! 

Topbox came with 4 products this month (1 full size) with a total value of $32.71! This is around the average value for Topboxes - which is good for me! I will say I wasn't thrilled with the bag at first glance, but now that I looked at everything I am happy with it. All 4 products are new to me and they are all products I will use! 

What did you think of the May Topbox? Did you get the same products?
