April Topbox

I finally received my April Topbox today! Canada Post took their sweet time delivering this to me, but it finally arrived! Let's see what I got...

In honour of Earth Day, Topbox went a bit eco-friendly. They printed their design directly onto the box this month, instead of using their normal paper label. You now have the option to keep this new eco-friendly design - I love this idea! Overall, I'm very happy with the Earth Day ideas!

The first product is from Benefit! Yay!

The POREfessional - "Quickly minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup. Translucent, oil-free formula complements all skin tones and helps makeup stay put."
Full Size: $34 (22mL)
Sample Size: 7.5mL
I've used this before and I really like it, so I'm happy to have a sample of it!

The next product is a nail polish!

Misa - Play it Cool - "With a colour to suit any craving, Misa delivers the most fun, exciting and professional colours to indulge in. Misa's formula of nano-silver particles reduces chipping and is non-fading for optimal shine."
Full Size: $8.99 (15mL) The sample is full size!
I wouldn't have picked this shade, I normally don't love light pinks. I've never used a polish from Misa before, so I'm excited to see how the formula is. Topbox also included a 20% off your next purchase of Misa.

Bella Pella Tropical Flowers Body Lotion - "Enjoy the exotic perfume of the South Pacific flowers with the lightweight non-greasy lotion. Enriched with avocado oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter.
Full Size: $15.95 (175mL)
Sample Size: 30mL
I love body lotions, but I wish that this was a larger sample size. I feel like this is only enough for two uses, if you use it for your whole body. The scent is very floral - I don't love it but I don't hate it.

Principessa Beauty - Notte/Bianco Breeze Dry Shampoo - "This dry shampoo is a silky multi-use powder is a refreshing treat, talc free (naturally) and designed to keep you shower fresh all day and smelling amazing with our isolina fragrance. 
Full Size: $24 (125g)
Sample Size: 30g
This was supposed to be a personalized shade, but I got this "for darker shades", and I'm a blonde. So, I might try this out to see if it really is coloured, or if I can make it work. I really would have liked to have gotten this for lighter shades. 

Lastly, there was a sponsored ad from Cargo with a magazine-like sample of their blu_ray pressed powder. I'm not sure of the shade of the powder, hopefully it will work for me! 

Overall, I am happy with this month's Topbox! I'm not blown away by it, but it's considerably better than the last few Luxe Boxes that I've received. I also love that the Topbox is a cylinder, it fits right in my mailbox so I don't have to go pick it up at the post office like I have to do for the other beauty boxes! 

Have you received your Topbox yet? Did you receive the same items as me? Let me know in the comments! 

Disclosure: This box was sent to me for my honest review. 


  1. The container they shipped it in is lovely. I like unique packaging and boxes. They make organizing things more fun.


  2. I love topbox- I get my first one in May and I cannot wait! Til then I am using glossbox which has been okay. They have lovely packaging which I do enjoy.

    1. I'm loving Topbox too! I love the packaging of Glossybox too - so pretty and feminine :)

  3. great review!

    Hi, my name is Isabel and I work at Topbox. In March's survey, you had to indicate which shade of hair you have right now. That is why we sent you the 'dark shade'. Please email us at so we can send you a 'blonde shade'!

    Have a great day!
