For those of you who are not familiar with Topbox, it is a Canadian monthly subscription beauty sample tube. For $12 a month, subscribers will receive 4 deluxe beauty samples or at times 3 deluxe beauty samples and a full-sized product will be included as the fourth product within the tube.
Before I continue, I just want to take a moment to disclose that I have not received any monetary compensation for this post. I am a Topbox subscriber and I pay for the monthly tubes with my own money.
This is my second time receiving a tube from Topbox, and today I received the November Edition. When I received it, I took a few moments to try and not have high expectations as I was fairly disappointed with the October Edition (which I will discuss later on in this post). This is the tube that will decide whether I continue as a subscriber.
Want to know what's in the tube? Let's take a look!
|I would normally be disappointed with receiving perfume samples, however, I really like this particular scent, and it us a pretty decent sample size.|
I'm all for lip stains, however, I never wear red and this product is very sticky and hard to take off. Unfortunately, I know that I'll never use this product so I will be passing this on to a friend.
This would have to be my favorite product within this month's Topbox. I love glittery nail polish and I know this will look amazing on top of some darker shades! I'm also happy that this was a full-sized product that was included within the tube.
October Edition Discussion:
After having been on the waiting list since April, I was really disappointed with the October Edition as my first Topbox tube. There was nothing in the tube that appealed to me, and I had indicated in the survey I filled out for my beauty profile that I did not want some of the products that I had received. I do also know that I wasn't the only person that was disappointed and there were quite a few complaints made by subscribers regarding the October Edition as well.

My Overall Impressions for the Topbox November Edition:
Overall, I am very happy with two of the four products within this month's Topbox tube. I know that I'll have great use for the nail polish and mascara. As for the other two products, I'll most likely pass them on to a friend that I know will enjoy them. I'm still torn on deciding whether I should remain as a Topbox subscriber, and I may possibly stay just for one more month and cancel after I receive the December Edition. Hopefully, Topbox will include some nice goodies for the holidays.
So what do you think, is it worth remaining as a Topbox subscriber?
