Toppbox, Men’s Grooming Subscription Box
Men’s grooming is fast becoming a big market. With brands catching on with their products. Toppbox is a very different kind of Grooming. A subscription box that caters to all your male grooming needs. I’ve kindly been gifted some of the products used in their subscription boxes. I’ve used the products for over 2 weeks so here is my review.
Who is Toppbox?
Taken from the Toppbox website:
From our products to our packaging, everything is made right here in the UK. Our bottles are produced in Norfolk, product are formulated in Surrey, whilst our cardboard boxes are made in Manchester. We bring it all together here in London and send our packages all over the UK, from the busy streets of Birmingham to the quiet neighbourhoods of Cornwall.
We understand that what goes on our skin goes in our skin. That is why our products are made with the highest quality natural and organic ingredients that are proven to be safe and effective. Our gentle formulations mean that our products are suitable for all skin types. They are kind enough for those with sensitive skin. With no unnecessary synthetic material, parabens, artificial fragrances or harmful chemicals, we are committed to keeping things natural. All our products are 100% vegan friendly and have not been tested on animals. So you can use them with a clear conscience.
What’s on the outside matters to us just as much as what’s on the inside. Since our products are natural, it’s only fair that our packaging is natural too. With a green focus, we’re passionate about reducing our impact on the planet. That is why our bottles are made using plastic derived from sugarcane. This Bio-Plastic is produced from a renewable resource, sustainably farmed, reduces the carbon footprint, is 100% recyclable, and better for the planet overall. Not all of our bottles are made from this Bio-Plastic, but with your ongoing support we’ll be looking to have our whole range developed using this environmentally friendly source. Just look for the ‘I’m Green’ sign on our packaging.
The products I was kindly gifted from Toppbox are as follows; Balancing hair wash, Energising body wash, Refreshing face wash, Hydrating face moisturiser, Comforting shave lotion and Soothing post- shave balm. I’ve used the products over the past 2 weeks to allow my skin to react to the products and also my hair. The first thing I want to say about these products is how much I applaud them for being all natural ingredients. Having very sensitive skin I have to use products that are going to be harsh to my skin.
Balancing Hair Wash:
Reading the hair wash information it’s really good to see that this formulated to cleanse away dirt and residue without stripping the skin of its natural oils. With ingredients such as wheat protein which repairs and strengthens damaged hair with protein and grapefruit to prevent hair loss, at my age this is a god send. Before using this product I started to notice a lot of hair was coming out in the shower. But since using this product the amount of hair has dramatically fallen. With the added menthol ingredient it gives the hair wash a hint of mint which also tackles dandruff and promotes scalp health. It left my hair feeling refreshed, soft and I had a bounce in my curls.
Energising Body Wash:
When it comes to body wash I always use the same brand. I know it cleans me and it smells amazing. However, Toppbox may have topped it for me on this occasion. Using soap bark which removes sweat and grime whilst rejuvenating dry skin and having litsea cubeba that cleanses skin and controls excessive perspiration, I can honestly say I’ve never felt cleaner. Another ingredient which I found really interesting was the Jasmine Sambac which improves skin immunity and protection. I think this is a really cool thing to have in a body wash. Again, just like the balancing hair wash it has added menthol which also boosts circulation and invigorates skin with giving you an added mint smell.
Refreshing Face Wash & Face Moisturiser:
With my skin being combination, I have to be careful what I put on my skin. Across my nose and under my eyes always get very oily. However where my beard is gets very dry due to shaving. So I was a little apprehensive towards these products. However, using them I’ve noticed that my skin isn’t as oily as it used to be. It is still oily but not as bad as it used to be. In the Face wash they use, blackcurrant ingredients which prevents acne and protects skin cells from pollution and avocado to keep skin hydrated and reduces inflammation these two products work so well together. In the Face Moisturiser coconut hydrates the skin, unclogs pores and replaces damaged cells as well as peppermint that promotes blood flow and livens up skin for a fresh look.
Comforting Shave Lotion & Soothing Post-Shave Balm
I don’t really shave much anymore, other than my neck. I don’t really use shaving cream of such. However this Shave lotion works so well. It works as a protective barrier between your skin and the blade of your razor. Using ingredients to soften whiskers such as; Neroli, Williow Bark and oat silk. As I use this on my neck as I get rid of a lot of hair from my neck, it works really well. My razor just glides over my neck which is wonderful. The Soothing Post-shave Balm is another beautiful little product as it soothes any post shave irritation. As I’ve said previous my skin is very sensitive so any nicks or cuts feel like 10X worse than what they should be. However, formulated with Grapeseed, Aloe Vera and Peppermint, these ingredients protect the skin and promote cell renewal.
Conditioning Beard Wash & Nourishing Beard Oil
So once I’ve trimmed my beard I use the conditioning beard wash. The beard wash smells amazing with ingredients such as Tea tree, blackcurrant and lime, it’s a very fruity mix. All these ingredients help rinse out dirt and residue whilst cleaning any skin irritation under the beard. This conditioning beard wash makes me beard feel soft and very refreshed which is something I love. Using the beard oil after this just strengthens my beard and make my beard feeling it’s best. It also boasts having Vitamins A, B and E to increase beard hair growth and strength.
In conclusion, the Toppbox is an amazing product. Being able to pick and choose what products you want for your box is a very special touch. I’ve really enjoyed using the products and I’ve seen a big difference in my skin on a day to day basis. This box is most certainly something I would highly recommend for convenience and for how good their products are. Not to mention all of the benefits such as natural ingredients as well as green packaging.
