I finally made it off to the waitlist for Topbox and was able to try the October box.

Oct Topbox

Our mission is to surprise and delight beautiful women (we’re talking to you!) every month, with a luxe box of the top hand-picked beauty samples.

In joining this exclusive ladies club, you are signing up for 4 generous helpings of premium delight each and every month. And did we mention that shipping is free? Think of it as a VIP program that allows you to discover new products and save some of your pretty pennies for the fabulous LBD you’ve had your eye on for the upcoming soiree.

B Kamins mask
B Kamins Brightening Mask – This is the only sample I am really excited to try from the box. I love trying masks!

Elizabeth Arden lipstick
Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick – I’m not really a lipstick wearer, but this sample does have a selection of 3 shades, as well as a little lip brush.

Lise Watier foundation
Lise Watier Teint Age Control Supreme – A foundation with an antioxidant, this sounds great, but a quick peek at the shade tells me this is way too dark for me.

Wella Hair Lotion
Wella Professionals Stay Brillian Color Protection Lotion – I’ve never heard of a hair lotion. It seems to be a light weight styling product.

Shipping: This shipped in 3 days! I got my shipping notice yesterday, and when I looked it up, it shipped on Sept 30, and on Oct 2 it was already out for delivery. That is crazy for a subscription box! Of course, it was shipped from Vancouver, which is about as close as could be.

Packaging: This comes strong circular cardboard tube that has a pretty pattern, and will make for great gift packaging. This month it came in a bubble envelop because the hair product was bigger than the tube.

Price: At $13.44 after tax, with free shipping, this is the best priced box I’ve seen. The samples seem to be high value, which makes the price well worth it.

Overall: I’m a touch disappointed in my product selection this month, but since I’ve seen lots of great boxes from everyone else the last few months, I’m hoping this is a one-time sadness and next month will be better.

If you’re interested in signing up for Topbox (open to Canadians only), please let me know, and I’ll send you an invite. If 3 people join by invite, I’ll earn a free month’s box.

  1. the lipstick sample is adorable!

  2. The lipstick sample seems like a good idea, you get to try a few this way. I can’t say I’ve tried any of these products before.
