Topbox December 2015

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.

I don’t go for the box option since it just means more things for me to recycle.  I give the bags to my mom after I empty them because I don’t use those again either.  The bag colour does change up all the time.

The info card was tucked in there and it tells you what items you are getting and price and where to buy them.

Fruits & Passions Cucina Regenerating Hand Cream Coriander And Olive Tree-40mL $3.33

It has been a few years since I’ve used a Cucina hand cream and I forgot how great they smell.  They also work really well and I am very happy to find this in my bag! Way to go Topbox!

SeaRx Birch Sap Moisturizing Lotion x 2

And we’re back to things that are the same.  To be fair these only look exactly like the product from last month and are from the same company.  These ones are moisturizers while last month was a scrub.  This lotion is for your whole body not just your face and while I’m sure it’s good it’s not as great as the one above.

Hask Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment-50g $1.77

Since Luxe Box was taken over by Topbox there has been a bit of doubling up if you get both and this is one of those items.  I’ll just use my description from that box here now..This is a Monoi Coconut Oil conditioner that moisturizes and revitalizes all hair types.  You work it into damp hair and leave it on for 10 minutes to have it work for you.  I always like to use these but having a long enough shower to use them is a bit of a struggle since I rarely shower without two small humans hanging out in there too.

Cuccio Nail Lacquer in Gazing In Genoa-13mL $4.21

And here’s another one that was in the Winter Luxe Box as well.  Same colour and everything.  I did like this polish but I don’t need two.  I’ll never use them both up.

This months box has a value of $9.31 plus the lotions.  This is why I had stopped getting this box last time.  I was getting so many doubles and similar items from month to month that I was annoyed.  The only good thing is that since they only do month to month subscriptions I can cancel this without any hassle if it keeps up.  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.
