I am finally off the waitlist! I received notification from Topbox that subscriptions were open earlier this month. I signed up in June and finally got my first Topbox this month. I had been on the fence for quite some time deciding whether I wanted to try Topbox. I’ve heard good reviews, so thought I should at least give them a try. With Topbox you’ll receive 4 beauty samples for $12 a month.
One thing about Topbox is it doesn’t come in a standard box. The outer packaging is wrapped in recyclable plastic mailers and their luxe box are purposely free of branding, so you can easily reuse them for gifting or housing those hundreds of lip glosses you've been meaning to organize. The luxe box is made from recycled kraft paper which uses significantly less material to manufacture than most other paperboard.
Yaby - Eyeshadow Refill in Baby Cabbage
Well we’re not off to a good start with this. A small eyeshadow refill in a colour I’m not crazy about. Next...
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
I don’t find anything “dramatically different” with this moisturizer, but will still put it to use.
Benefit Sugarbomb Lip Gloss
A shimmering pinky nude. Ok, this is a lot better. A great lip gloss from a great brand. No complaints here.
Miyu Teas & Beauty - Hydrate Mi & Beauty Tea Sachet
A revolutionary fusion between a facial mist and a serum that can prime the skin for moisturizer; act as a base for makeup and provide an instant surge of hydration any time of day.
At first I was kind of like whatever I’m already over this box. Everything is pretty meh and unexciting. However, I really love that I got this product. I’ve haven’t tried any facial mists and this seems like an amazing product. The packaging is cute too.
So my first Topbox didn’t excite me. Maybe if there were bigger samples I would’ve been more pleased. I know I've been spoiled by some subscription boxes. On one hand I was introduced to a new product that I love, but on the other hand it was like - this is it?! I’m going to give Topbox one more month and then decide to continue or cancel. Do you subscribe? How did you like Topbox this month?
