April 2015 Topbox - Canadian Beauty Subscription Review

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. A prive box is a box that focuses on one brand or product for the whole box.

TopBox is a Canadian company and only ships to Canada. The only downside to subscribing to TopBox is that there is a wait-list that can take a month or two to get off of.

Since I have received quite a few Prive boxes in the last few months, for April I decided to stick with the regular Topbox. Here's a look:

As an added bonus this month, Topbox included a sample size Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen - I have tried this kind last year and really like it! It smells awesome!

Topbox always includes a product card explaining what they have included:

Here is a closer look at the products:

NeoStrata Skin Renewal Peel Solution ~ sample size 20 ml for $30 (full size is 50 ml for $75) Ideal quick fix for uneven and dull skin. The glycolic acid will help eliminate the dead cells responsible for the rough skin. This solution contains 10% glycolic acid and 10% gluconolactone, the highest potency available of AHA to achieve results after only 1 treatment.
This is a great size sample from a great brand - I like peels so this will be great. (It does smell super strong so I hope it is not irritating when I use it)

Vichy Capital Soleil Ultra Light Lotion SPF 50 ~ sample size 3ml for $1.53 (full size is 50ml for $25.50). For men and women of all ages with phototypes 1, 2, 3 or 4 who want to protect their skin efficiently from UVA and UVB rays. Ideal texture for oily and combination skin.
I am so disappointed with the size of this sample - 3ml?! This is going to do my maybe 2 or 3 times if I use this sparingly! To be fair - if I like this I will be purchasing it full size. The hubby and I will be going on our honeymoon in September and I am on the hunt for a really good face sunscreen! 

LA Splash Diamond Lipgloss in "Pink Revolution" ~ full size $8.98. With the diamond lipgloss, you will have a moisture-rich formula with intense sparkle! 
I'm not loving this bright pink glittery lipgloss - just not what I would wear!

Essie Mini Nail Lacquer in "Blossom Dandy" ~ mini size 5ml for $3.70 (full size is 13.5ml for $9.99). This color is described as a mint crème hydrangea - eye catching light blue with a hint of spring mint green.
This color is beautiful - it just seems so weird the Topbox would send out mini Essies when they usually include this brand full size! I will still use it though!

For $12, I received 4 products (1 full) with a total value of $44.21. Overall I am happy with the value and the products - they only thing I will not use is the lipgloss. I wish the Essie and the Vichy were a little bigger, but I do still like them!

What did you think of the April Topbox?
