Canadian Subscription Boxes
Canadian BTers who get subscription boxes, which are your favourites?   I want to jump on the bandwagon, but money is tight so if I'm going to only pick one, which should it be?   And while we're on the subject, I know Birchbox is now available in Canada... are there any other US ones you wish we could get?

Q. I need to add exfoliation and morning cleanse step...
I recently switched from using philosophy Purity and a Clarisonic with a "delicate" brush head to Ole Henriksen's Pure Truth 3-in-1 Melting cleanser (Gelee).  While I was in-store the Gelee was recommended to me on the discovery that I was probably stripping my face (it stung really badly when I put moisturizer on).     I love the way that the Gelee makes my face feel and the fact that my face is not red and super sensitive for over an hour after cleaning it.  The only downside it that I have yet to find an exfoliator and a gentle morning cleanser.   I have used philosophy's Micro-delivery exfoliating wash and several drugstore brands but they have all stripped my face to varying degrees and the Micro-delivery wash left my face red and hot to the touch for about 45 minutes.   I am looking for something that is gentle enough to smooth and refine my face, but not so harsh that it leaves my face red and stinging. Any suggestions?

Lip Primer recommendation
I want a holy grail lip primer. I want one that is not drying (already suffering with dry lips and winter has barely begun). I want it to stop lipstick feathering and bleeding and lock in color so I'm not reapplying every hour.    I don't want it to be either slippery nor drying.    Is Guerlains Kiss Kiss worth a shot?
