Topbox - June 2017

Topbox is probably the most affordable subscription service that I have ever subscribed to. It's only $12 a month, which means in Ontario it only comes to $13.56 after taxes. Super affordable. Especially for those who aren't looking to spend too much, while getting to try new brands. They usually only send sample sized products, and a lot of skincare. So if you're looking for mostly makeup, or full size items, I'd recommend Boxycharm instead. Or even Ipsy. There generally isn't a theme of the month either.

Each month we are given the opportunity to wish for a prive box. What that is, is a box featuring a specific brand. First let's take a look at what our prive options were for June.


There was a large selection of Prive boxes this month. The options were:

There were a couple of prives that actually caught my attention this time, and I ended up wishing for the Cosmetics Awards Box #1, TheFaceShop Dr. Belmeur box, and then also a regular topbox for good measure! Let's see what I was sent! (Topbox will no longer be sending tracking information, so now we have no way to sneak a look at what the tracking code says!)


Yay! I was picked for the Dr. Belmeur box! This is what I wanted the most, I'm always looking for good skincare, and I know I love TheFaceShop!

Included in this prive topbox were three deluxe size samples, and a coupon for a free lip balm.

Daily Repair Toner - A mild toner that calms skin and boosts moisture. Daily mild moisturizing solution. Skin-sync RX containing phytoshpingosine, moroheiya, birch tree sap is used to help form a moisture layer to calm dry skin. Full size is 200mL and retails for $28. This sample is 50mL making this worth $7

This toner has a watery look to it, but its more on the thicker side of toners. It felt moisturizing, and I can't wait to add this to my routine once I'm finished my other toner. I've only got maybe a week left of it, and this will be taking its place!

Daily Repair Moisturizer - A low-irritant moisturizer that calms sensitive skin and protects skin damaged by the external environment. Daily low-irritant moisturizing solution: contains phytoshpingosine, moroheiya, birch tree sap, and skin-sync rx which helps form a moisture layer to calm dry skin. Full size is 120mL and retails for $32. This sample size is 30mL which makes it worth $8

This isn't a very thick moisturizer, but it isn't too thin either. It feels great and hydrating on the skin, and also absorbs quickly. This will also be making it into my routine soon!

Daily Repair ATO Salt Cream - Mineral salt cream that provides deep moisturization and itch relief for dry skin. Skin-moisturizing and barrier-enhancing solution. Contains sea salt, peony extract, phytosphingosine and ceramide. Skin-sync RX is used to help maintain healthy skin, including moisturizing and treating dry, flaky skin, relieving itching and stretching the skin barrier. Full size is  80mL and retails for $47. This sample size is 20mL making it worth $11.75

This was a little more like lotion compared to the Daily Repair Moisturizer. It also felt hydrating and absorbed quickly into the skin, and didn't leave behind a film. This will be great for elbows, and whenever my face decides to create some itchy dry patches - because it happens.

Overall, I'm happy with this trio. The value is $26.75 which is pretty much double the amount I pay to receive Topbox. I know TheFaceShop makes great products, and I can't wait to add all of these to my daily skincare routine! If you're interested in trying any of these, they are now available to order off of www.thefaceshop.ca. There's even a trial kit here that you can purchase, and it includes the foam cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and ato salt cream!
