Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Has anyone out there tried the Top Box Subscription? โœจ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ฆโœจ๏ธ


I did and was on the fence about it.  I got my first Box and I think I'm going to keep going with it, until next month at least. 



Canadian Sub box for 15$ that gives you 4 trial sized of random products.

Pro: Affordable 

Con: Who knows what you'll get ๐Ÿค—  and tiny products.


My first Box ๐Ÿ’–



okay so first impressions:
Wow! What a surprise, three full size lip products! 
๐Ÿฉท A liquid lipstick in Dusty Rose by Laritzy 
๐Ÿ’šA tinted lip oil by Manna Kada
๐Ÿ’œ  A tinted lip balm by Maskeraide.

Plus, the two minis. A facial oil by Clairns and a mascara, Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics.

This box has more value than what I paid and the quality of the lippies were a hit for me. 
Each one tasted nice on my lips and were hydrating. Plus they look so pretty on.  


(Wearing Laritzy in Dusty Rose)

The Clairns oil is more sample than trial size so menh ๐Ÿ˜ด  but I'm okay with the mini mascara, I use it everyday so it'll serve me well lol

 So my break down is just in that spoiler above. ๐Ÿ™ƒ 

Final thoughts? ๐Ÿ“ฆ

SO,  for now,  I'm going on for another month. I'm excited to see where this goes. 


If you've had this sub box I'd love to hear about it! What did you think, what did you get? And are you still in?


Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@JoSometimes  I actually have a large canvas bag full of sets of product lines. I save them by brand, and that way I can try out a product line all at once without needing to make expensive investments in their stuff without knowing if I like it or not. I did purge some items recently, just some foils and such that I knew I'd never use, but there's still a whole lot left! Including Clarins. LOL

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Thatโ€™s smart @Westcoasty! I tend to try things out by need. I donโ€™t quite have that large of a collection to go by brand. 

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@JoSometimes  It's accumulated over several years. Some of the samples probably need to be thrown out by now! But I do tend to try for rewards and samples of products where I'm collecting the brand.

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Congratulations on getting your box! ๐ŸŽ ๐Ÿ’ @Westcoasty I hope you enjoy everything. 

Clairns makes really good products, I've got to test out a good few items now. Lol, I feel like they are possibly supporters of this sub box ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I'm a big sun screen everyday kinda person, if I'm not diligent I skip the retinols too. I don't want to waste my efforts. And for weeks after you stop using as well, that's a big sunscreen commitment. ๐Ÿค—

(I just tried a tiny bit of the HA serum on my damp face after I washed it tonight,  oh its really nice! )


Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@CynthieLu  Yes, I'm kind of getting the impression that Clarins sends a lot of business their way myself. LOL


I'm looking forward to trying the Clarins in due course, but I've taken a page from your book and am rotating my product lines to see what my skin likes. The Grown Alchemist rewards bazaar box I got unfortunately wasn't a winner, but I'll keep going!

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

My August Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ ๐ŸŒป


Coincidence,  I also was going to purchase a brow wax but held off because I've never found one I liked.  My brow story is, they are sparse from over plucking in my youth but each hair is thick, and it's a wierd combo let me tell you ๐Ÿ˜…

I got a serum by Innisfree innisfree Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum 2.7 oz / 80 mL 

From Clarins ( this brand is in every box so far)  Clarins Multi-Active Anti-Aging Day Moisturizer for Glowing Skin 1.6 oz/ 47 mL 

And 2 items by Benefit 

Benefit Cosmetics Fluff Up Brow Flexible Brow-Texturizing Wax Clear 

Benefit Cosmetics Mini Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer Shade 3 ( a full size item, that is a rare Unicorn, hurray!)


I'm very happy with what I have this time, a break from lippies and mini mascaras was really nice.  I'll use the day cream and HA serum, they both will fit into my routine nice and easy.  HA goes so easily into a routine and subbing out my day cream for a few days with this will be so simple. 

Clairns is good quality and a nice brand and Innisfree is like a kbeauty legend, soo yeahy ๐Ÿ™Œ


My verdict is,  I'm super happy and going in for another month ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Lucky you @CynthieLu! A full-sized brow pencil! Hopefully itโ€™s the right shade for you and they work well together with the wax. 

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ


Now that @CynthieLu and @Westcoasty have their boxes, we can all post our thoughts on this monthโ€™s box!

Itโ€™s all trial sizes this time but they all seem like good ones.


Benefit Cosmetics Fluff Up Brow Flexible Brow-Texturizing Wax Clear 

innisfree Green Tea Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum 2.7 oz / 80 mL 

Clarins Multi-Active Anti-Aging Day Moisturizer for Glowing Skin 1.6 oz/ 47 mL 

Jouviance 3D Retinol+

Iโ€™m happy to see the brow wax in there. Lately, Iโ€™ve just being using a pencil to do my brows. I have elfโ€™s Wow Brow gel to tame the hairs a little, but it always makes my brows look super dark. I was going to replace it with something clear or translucent but now I donโ€™t have to! I used it once already and I liked it.


Iโ€™m surprised to see some k-beauty in here with the innisfree serum. They always seem to do a good job with their R&D to ensure itโ€™s friendly for sensitive skin and my skin generally enjoys Hyaluronic acid products. 

Clarinsโ€™ cream is the one Iโ€™m mildly apprehensive about trying. The packaging said for normal to oily skin but online, it says formulated for all skin types. At least itโ€™s trial size, so itโ€™s not the end of the world if I find itโ€™s not doing much for me. 

I almost bought a retinol a few days ago but decided to wait. Iโ€™m glad to see Jouvianceโ€™s the box. Itโ€™ll save me from having to get another for a little while. It says formulated for sensitive skin, so Iโ€™m excited to give it a try. The price for a full size is up there though, so hopefully I donโ€™t fall in love with it too much! 

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@JoSometimesI got the same box as you. I'm a little doubtful about trying the Jouviance, for the simple reason that I'm terrible about wearing sunscreen. But the brow wax and the Innisfree serum are both things I want to try, and the Clarins will get tried out once I put my little bag of Clarins trial sizes into rotation. I hope you enjoy your goodies!

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Twinsies @Westcoasty! I used to be bad about sunscreen too. It eventually became habit once I found something I enjoyed using. 

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@JoSometimes   That totally makes sense. I found the Supergoop! sunscreen better than the cheap drugstore stuff I was used to, that's for sure. I think I'm still dialing in my skincare routine, truth to tell. My skin seems to be more sensitive than it used to be, breaking out in temporary rashes if I use the wrong thing. Sunscreen just seems like one more product that might break me out.

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Iโ€™m the same @Westcoasty. The wrong product can make me want to claw my skin right off. It took me a while to fine tune my routine though Iโ€™m fairly happy with where itโ€™s at right now. 


Ironically, Clarins Dry Touch Facial Sunscreen SPF 50 is formulated with sensitive skin in mind if youโ€™re still hunting for one you like. 

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

OMG @JoSometimes that's hilariously apropos! I'll have to check it out.

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@Westcoasty Maybe itโ€™ll show up in a box one of these days. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Awesome box! @JoSometimes It's funny because you said you were about to buy a new brow wax but held off. I think that's a happy coincidence ๐Ÿ™‚I hope this one performs better for you! Have you tried it yet?

Is this going to be your first retinol ever? There are some cautions to consider before diving in, but maybe you've heard it all before ๐Ÿค— 

I didn't think it world be the case but my box is slightly different, I didn't get the retinol and the subbed it with something else ๐Ÿ“ฆ ooh I didn't know that we could all get different things possibly 

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@CynthieLu I was actually about to buy a retinol product the other day. The jouviance is my third different retinol product. I started with Indeed Labs Retinol Reface, then COSRX The Retinol 0.1 serum. COSRX has been my fave so far and my skin tolerates it really well. The Jouviance one says formulated for sensitive skin, so I have high hopes for it. The price tag is quite highโ€ฆ

The search for a brow product was something Iโ€™ve been contemplating but is a pretty low priority.

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@CynthieLu @JoSometimes I got my box today! I took a photo, but won't post till @CynthieLu has her box as well. I will say that I'm pleased, as at least two of the products are ones that I've been considering buying for myself.

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Post away loves,  I got mine today! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅณ

@Westcoasty @JoSometimes  I'm so happy with it!

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Hooray! Glad you're happy with your items! Photo of mine coming up in the next few minutes. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

Itโ€™s like a countdown @Westcoasty! ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: Top Box Subscription Box ๐Ÿ“ฆ โœจ๏ธ

@JoSometimesI know, right? I didn't renew for next month, only because I haven't been working and need to tighten my belt a little. But I definitely want to sign up again once my cash flow is a bit less straitened.
