Toppbox Review by Darren & Nazia – April 2019

Each month I look forward to seeing what I will receive in the latest Toppbox but only if I can get to it before Nazia, sometimes I think she is more excited about the box then I am! I have always found the products in the box to be fantastic quality and it allows me to test out a wide range to find some new favourites. This month was no exception and I’d like to say a big thank you to Alham for sending this box to review.

If you missed my wife and I unboxing Toppbox live on Facebook, you can catch it here on the BoXession YouTube channel:

What I thought:

The items are packaged in a small black recyclable box that has the Toppbox logo printed on the top and the social media handles along the sides. Inside I found…

Seacret Pure Salt Body Exfoliator
Rich buttery-textured body peel, fortified with coarse mineral salts that gently exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving a smooth, refined finish. Nourishing salt blend helps to regenerate body skin for a fresh, youthful and silky skin sensation. I found this to be a great exfoliator with an amazing fresh scent. After a thorough scrubbing in the shower my skin felt smooth and refreshed, a great product and worth more then the price of the subscription box itself!

BARBER PRO Foaming Cleansing Mask
This self-foaming sheet mask bubbles to create a micro massage on the skin that cleanses the skin of impurities, work deep into the pores and cleanse away blackheads. Utilising Activated Charcoal and a rich AHA complex created from Lime, Lemon, Apple, Orange and Grapefruit the Detoxifying mask is also suitable for acne prone skin while refining the pores and reducing oil. As I said in the unboxing I enjoy the occasional face mask and join Nazia having a pamper evening. This mask is a sheet mask which I don’t tend to use as much due to the beard; I find it difficult to get the masks to stick to my face with it! Luckily I didn’t have any issues with this mask it stayed on my face and started to bubble up within a minute of applying it. It left my skin feeling clean and clear even the skin under the beard which was great, I guess the bubbles helped it get right down into my skin.

UpCircle Fennel & Cardamom Chai Soap Bar
This gently exfoliating soap cleanses and moistures your skin. Green clay draws toxins from pores, helping combat acne and breakouts, whilst shea butter leaves skin hydrated and smooth. Reused, repurposed, reloved: This soap is made with residual chai spices used to create Henny & Joe’s chai syrup. This soap has a strong and distinct smell thanks to the chai spices, its not to my usual preference of scent but the soap itself was great. It left my skin feeling refreshed and moisturised after using it for a couple of days. I think I will need to keep an eye out for other products made by UpCircle and see what else they have to offer.

ZEOS for Med QU3 Face Scrub
Modern urban living can be tough on your skin with pollutants, stress and junk food taking their toll. Naturally removing dead cells and dirt, this facial scrub contains coconut husk to gently exfoliate your skin for a rejuvenated, fresh and smooth feeling. Natural Vitamins E and B5 help you feel freshly balanced. I have already used a number of ZEOS products that I have received in my TOPPBOX over the past year and it has become a brand I know and love. This face scrub was no exception, the coconut husk helped to gently remove the dead skin and dirt leaving my face feeling fresh and smooth.

Temple All Talk Moisturising Lip Balm
This super rich lip balm is packed full of natural plant extracts, vitamins and botanicals, helping to condition and nourish your lips. This lip balm has a thick consistency meaning a little goes a long way. It has a mild fruity taste and left my lips feeling smooth and hydrated for a couple of hours. With the small tube size, I can keep one in my work bag and easily use a bit whenever my lips are feeling a bit dry.


I enjoyed trying out all the different product in this month’s box and once again TOPPBOX have put together a great box with some fantastic products. This month’s box is also great value for money with all the items adding up to double the subscription cost!
