December Topbox


If you read my blog very often, you'll know that I lurve me some subscription service. The newest one on my list is Topbox. It is pretty much like all the others: for $10 each month you receive a sampling of products, but their spin is that you only get "luxury" brands. Interesting... I missed out on last month's box by mere days and was totally bummed as it contained a full size Cake hand cream and a full size Deborah Lippman nail polish. Not too shabby at all.



While this month's box tube did not contain those items, it did have a nice assortment and one full size item.  I must say, the tube is cute and a nice way to stand out from the boxes.

The items:
- Cargo Classic Lip Gloss with Timestrip Technology in "Dusseldorf" (full size)
- Cover FX Skinprep FX Primer
- Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel
- Dr. Brandt Collagen Eye Serum


Cargo Classic Lip Gloss with Timestrip Technology in "Dusseldorf"

I was pretty excited to see the Cargo gloss. I remember seeing it in every magazine when it came out, but I never got around to getting one. The "timestrip technology" is a little card that fits into the cap and turns red over the lifespan of the gloss. After nine months, when the strip is completely red, you're supposed to toss your gloss. The shade "Dusseldorf' (say it, it's almost as fun as saying "schnapps") was custom selected for me, based on my Topbox profile. They sure are spot on, the colour is perfect; a shimmery neutral plummy pink. It is not a fully opaque gloss, but it does have a fair bit of colour. It isn't overly sticky but lasts quite well.

Overall, I am pretty happy with Topbox. Have you tried it?

  1. Dusseldorf sure looks nice! We have a few subscription services in the UK, I am subscribed with on for the moment but there is another one I'm eyeing. Probably will sign up for their December box, as I'm sure it will be great!

  2. I received the Dr. Brandt product in my November topbox, so it's really disappointing that they included it again in Decembers box!
