Topbox is a Canadian beauty subscription that ships you 4 samples every month. The shipping is free, which is nice, but there is tax based upon your province. This still makes it one of the cheapest boxes out there at $12 per month. Topbox normally comes is a cardboard container but you can chose to receive your products in a reusable organza bag for even less waste, which is my choice. They also offer special boxes that you can put on your wish list and you may get them or you’ll get the regular box. I had stopped getting this one for a while because I felt they were sending out too many of the same type of samples. I am giving them a try again because I now get almost no makeup boxes anymore and since this one is Canadian and inexpensive we’ll see how it goes this time.
This is the bag that arrives inside the mailer bag. I have no real use for these either but it’s better then getting a box.
There is an info card in there. The front lets you know they have some one time boxes out now. These have always been good value and I pick them up once in a while if the strike my fancy. The back has your products, retail pricing, and where you can buy them if you want more.
So Susan Rose Quartet Lip & Cheek Cream-$12.00 Full Size
Not really off to a great start with this one. I received this exact product in a box in September. That is of course the downfall of getting multiple boxes. I would be happy if this was something I really loved but since this is just okay to me, it’s a bit blah. I also don’t feel you can really use any of these colours on your cheeks so I think it’s misleading. Beyond that they do give good lip coverage and there is nothing wrong with it.
SeaRx Micro-Dermabrasion Face & Body Scrub x 2
This has just the slightest amount of grit in it providing the micro-dermabrasion part. You just need to rub it in to your face for 2 minutes and then rinse it off to get the benefits. There is no size on these tubes so I can’t get a price for you but each of these should last a week using their dime sized suggestion.
Revlon Professional Style Masters Modular Hairspray-75mL $3.00
This is a medium hold hairspray. It’s only available in salons and is of course aerosol. I have started to really like these smaller bottles of hairspray since they fit into my bag and now that I am not hauling a crapload of stuff for babies in there I can get back to carrying my stuff.
The Face Shop Character Mask-$3.00
Okay so I had never heard of The Face Shop before finding their advent calendar and now I’ve got a mask from them in the bag! This is a brightening mask and I think it’s great that they just put a pattern on them instead of plain paper. So fun and doesn’t affect the ability to do it’s job at all.
This months box has a value of $18.00 plus the scrubs. I like everything in the box and will use it all. I love the mask and the hairspray and while the lip quad is a repeat for me it’s still okay. As I mentioned above I like that it’s a Canadian box and that it’s really reasonably priced but it is not always varied. I have received nail polish in all but two of them and there is heavy promotion for London Drugs which I never shop at. If you are interested in getting your own Topbox send me a message and I can give you a link or you can visit them here.
