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


My box is slightly different than @CynthieLuโ€˜s.


Benefit Cosmetics Mini 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel with Lamination Effect 0.11 fl oz/ 3.5 mL which Iโ€™m already using since I got one from Benefit Brow Bar. Itโ€™s nice that I already have a replacement for when my current one runs out. 

Clarins SOS Primer

A nice primer with a skincare twist. It feels pleasant on the skin and played nicely with my foundation today. I checked it out on their website and there are a few other shades. I wish I could try the green one to help deal with some of the redness of my face. 

Laritzy Cream Highlighter

Cream highlighter thatโ€™s glowy without being too shimmery. It has a fairly thick consistency and requires more of a dabbing or stippling motion to apply. 

Clinique Smart Night Cream

It was a bit tricky to find info on this as it seems theyโ€™ve either reformulated or discontinues and replaced it with something different. Iโ€™m impressed by the size of the sample! Thereโ€™s enough here for multiple nights. So far it feels nice and isnโ€™t irritating. We shall see if there are any results at the end of this. Iโ€™m really glad they sent me the version for dry skin. 

Overall, very happy with this box!

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

Fabulous box! @JoSometimes 

Clinique is a good surprise! I didn't post much about the Eye Cream I recieved yet, but it's instructions are a little intimidating tbh.

I need to do a spot test before I risk it near my eyes.  ๐Ÿ‘€

First impressions, I really like the highlighter, let me know how it goes for you. I find the Estate and Laritzy products have done really well on my skin and I like the make up treats when they include them for us ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’•

Have fun with everything!

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

Octobers box arrived today! Ooh it shipped fast ๐Ÿคฉ


This set includes a Gold Highlighter by Laritzy

A trial of Clairns SOS Primer

A mini of Benefit Cosmetics Mini 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel with Lamination Effect 0.11 fl oz/ 3.5 mL 

A full size Eye Serum by Cover Girl


First Impressions: The value of what is inside seems like a really good deal this month. The mini brow setter alone is worth more than I paid for this box. Cover Girls eye serum retails at 18$ and the Highlighter sells for 20$. I'm pretty sure these are both full size in this month's box.


Value this month is โญโญโญโญโญ

PXL_20231016_214526569.jpgThe highlighter is incredibly creamy and leaves a very nice subtle glow, I can't see myself getting sooooo much use out of this.

I can blend it out so it's seemless. I applied it heavily in this photo just so the camera would really pick it up. โœจ


Verdict: I'm definitely getting next month's box ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

I didnโ€™t even check my mail today @CynthieLu! I totally forgot that it was the middle of the month. Iโ€™m starting to see the pan of the Estate Highlighter, so Iโ€™m excited to hear I might have a replacement in my box! Iโ€™m also excited for the brow gel. I have that one right now from the Benefit brow bar at a nearby Sephora. Some of my brow hairs are a bit stubborn in the direction they want to grow, so itโ€™s handy to help tame them. The primer and the eye serum both sound lovely. 

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

Thank you @JoSometimes ๐Ÿ˜ŠI hope your box arrives soon! 

I am never sure what's going to be inside but I think this time I can work with just about everything. I think I have to wait to try the eye serum on a day I'm not working or going anywhere after reading the instructions, it seems like powerful stuff. Tonight if I remember I'm going to patch test it on my inner eyebrow or behind my ear. If that goes smoothly I'll give it a go  on my next day off ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

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

I recieved my September Box ๐ŸŽ ooooh it's a fun one!



(Details in spolier)


Some info about what's inside: ๐ŸŒž


From TopBox:

Aqua Bomb Vitamin C

Purchase the full size, 50mL $45

Purchase the full size, 50mL $97 


Ooh my first blush from Top Box, and it's Apricot. I think I can definitely work with this colour. It's very creamy to swatch and feels more cream than powder even thou it is a powder formula. From the swatch I can tell it's very pigmented too. This will be fun to expirment with. ๐Ÿ˜€




and different lighting to help pick it up better in the photo ๐Ÿ˜‰




I'm happy with the trial sizes for the Belief and Jouviance. Foils don't give me enough time to form an impression. These will have enough for a few days at least in each one. I'm most interested in Jouviance, it sounds lovely ๐Ÿ˜


It'll be my first time with either brand, I like that thrill of trying something new. 


And of course the Clarins ๐Ÿ˜„ I have actually used this before *thou not from Top Box* , it's a treatment mascara, it's been awhile so I'm going to have to get reacquainted with it. I think overall I prefer regular ol' mascara but I'll give this another try ๐Ÿ˜‹


Top Box feels so far: I'm going to keep the subscription for next month. I'm pretty pleased with my little haul ๐Ÿฉท


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

@CynthieLu It looks like we both got the same things this month. Iโ€™m glad your first impressions of the blush are positive!

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

Apricot is one of my favorite blush colours @JoSometimes it was such an unexpected treat to see it in there ๐Ÿ˜

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



The September box is here! Iโ€™m certainly impressed by this one again. 

Iโ€™m very happy to see belif Aqua Bomb Brightening Vitamin C Cream with Hyaluronic Acid 1.69 oz/ 50 mL in the box. I have been without a Vitamin C product for quite some time and kept forgetting to replace it, so this is a welcome addition.


Clarins SOS Lashes Serum Mascara is interesting. I have plenty of mascaras including some that I havenโ€™t even tried yet, but I may start using this one more frequently for its serum benefits. They say itโ€™s a trial size, but this one is as large as some full sized mascaras.


The Laritzy pressed powder is an interesting one. Itโ€™s not something I would automatically gravitate towards. I might need a little inspiration so I can see how to put it to use. 


The last one is Jouviance anti-aging 3-in-1 seems nice. Hopefully it will play nice with my skin. I just started trying one from last monthโ€™s box, so it will take some time before I try out this one. 

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

Enjoy it all! @JoSometimes

I hope you find some good inspiration for the blush. ๐Ÿงก That little compact is pretty sweet thou. I couldn't believe they put a full sized makeup item in the box. ๐Ÿ˜„

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

@CynthieLu We did get that full sized highlighter in one of the previous boxes.


The more I look at this monthโ€™s blush, the more it says โ€œno-makeup makeup lookโ€ to me. 

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

As I recall I was pretty stoked about that highlighter too @JoSometimes ๐Ÿ˜‰

I love the little mirror compact with this one. Its just so nice ๐Ÿ˜„I  see what you mean about this blush and it's color. It's very natural flush ๐Ÿงกโœจ

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

@JoSometimes lol I'm thinking mine will arrive Monday and I have no clue what's inside this month ๐Ÿ˜…

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

@CynthieLu I tried looking around but I canโ€™t seem to find any info on whatโ€™s in the box this monthโ€ฆ



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

I may have done the same lol. @JoSometimes It's irresistible curiosity to blame. ๐Ÿ˜…

I keep getting asked through email about the Laura Mercier body collection. Asking how I enjoyed my sample,even thou I never recieved a sample. ๐Ÿค”

So that might be featured in this box possibly ...or it was just a few samples that never made it to my door. 

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

@CynthieLu Strangeโ€ฆ The emails I get have lined up with what was in my past boxes.

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

Top box Experiences in the inbetween time ๐ŸŽ

The email came last week with a little questionnaire about my box. After I got asked if I wanted to pay 10$ additional for the Privee box and I paid. I like that deal ๐Ÿ˜


I did just get the email today saying they had run out.

I was surprised they didn't say right away that my additional charge would be refunded right? I emailed CS and inquired about it, I'm sure they'll issue a refund once they sort out who's getting or not getting the Privee box ๐Ÿค—


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

@CynthieLu I got the same offer. Iโ€™ve been off this past month, so moneyโ€™s been tight. Maybe next time. 

Hopefully you get the refund!

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

I'm sure I will @JoSometimes, I wish I could know what would have been in the box thou, I'm curious ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜„

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

I got the same box as @JoSometimes - I confess I'd rather have had the box @CynthieLu got! But I'm happy with mine just the same. I've been looking at that eyebrow wax for awhile, for sure, and I already have a bunch of Innisfree products that are going to go into rotation fairly soon. I had to laugh when I saw the Clarins, remembering all the times @CynthieLu got Clarins items! But that's okay, it'll go into my Clarins bag, and I'll put them all into rotation when I have a good range of products.

I think I need to practice my haul "selfies", though. LOL


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

Nice box @Westcoasty! ๐Ÿ˜‰


I agree. It seems like this is Clarinsโ€™ way of spreading the word about their products. I love that you have a bag of just things from them!
