December Topbox!

Hello everyone! I have been waiting since the beginning of November to get my hands on a Topbox and I'm lucky I ordered when I did because it looks like if you subscribe now your FIRST Topbox will be in May?! Crazy, right? Good for Topbox! One thing that I was so pleased with was the early West Coast shipping! I think subscribers in Eastern Canada received their Topboxes this past Friday, which sort of ruined the surprise for me when I looked at the Topbox Facebook page, but that's ok, seeing the tube on my shipping desk this morning still put a smile on my face! Anyway, onward to the...un..tubing?

Pretty paper-covered tube which I'm sure I will use for makeup brushes ;-) Also a nice way for Topbox to set themselves apart from the two other subscription sample companies.

Ooooh, goodies!

One card with bonus Shoppers Optimum points if you buy a Cover FX primer and the other with information about the products inside.

I received: Cargo Cosmetics blu_ray Gloss with TimeStrip Technology (full size $25)
Cover FX Skinprep FX Primer (full size $45)
Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel (full size $78)
Dr.Brandt Collagen Eye Serum (full size $65)

This is probably the highlight of the bunch as it is a FULL SIZE Cargo product in the colour "Big Sur" and features "TimeStrip Technology". The scientist in me finds "beauty science" so amusing, but sure, it's cool and makes a classic lipgloss a little more interesting. 

Slide the little card into a slit into the cap. This breaks the seal inside. Based on the card, this lipgloss is good for 9 months.

And the countdown begins!

A berry-coloured gloss with little gold sparkles inside. 

To be honest, I was hoping for the "Bella Pella" soap that other people received because that would have been one more full size product...I am heading out to Montreal for the New Year so I guess I'll just have drop by the Bella Pella store and buy the soaps there! 

I appreciated the fact that the colour of the lipgloss was chosen to compliment my beauty profile and actually feels smooth and silky on my lips. I also love the fact this Cargo lipgloss is paraben-free! I would have thought there would be more of a "holiday factor" with this box like glitter or something special, but overall, I am happy with my first Topbox as the full size Cargo lipgloss made this box (tube?) worth it and I look forward to trying the other samples given for this month! Thanks Topbox! Merry Christmas!
