I gave up my ipsy subscription and I thought I would give Topbox a try. Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription that costs $12 CAD plus tax, so basically $13.56. Shipping is free. You get 4 samples a month for this price. For me to subscribe, I had to go on a waiting list for about 3 weeks which was fine. I received notification when it was shipped and I also received notification when it was delivered to my mailbox. I pick up my mail from a community mailbox and I ran out when I received the notification and there it was!
Everything is wrapped in tissue paper and was snugly packaged in a cardboard tube that came inside a mailing package.
I’m undecided if these products are worth the cost of the subscription as I haven’t tried them yet other than having tried the mascara before. I’m hoping as well that because this is a Canadian subscription that I might see more beauty products that are easily available to buy in Canada. I’m sort of underwhelmed by what I received this month so I’ll see how next month’s box goes before I make a decision about cancelling.
