Topbox - Mid Subscription Review - Beauty Subscription Box

In June I wrote a detailed assessment and analysis of my experience with Beauty Box 5 after 4 months. Now it is time to focus on Topbox.

What is it? Topbox
How Much? $12 per month, shipping included
What’s in it?  4 deluxe beauty samples

My Topbox subscription started in April, so this analysis will cover April, May, June, and July. As with my last analysis post, I am going to analyze a few areas of this subscription: shipping, content and value. Shipping will look at when the boxes ship and how long they take to arrive, content will examine product count, product quality and product/brand variety and value will break down cost paid, value received and total savings. This post will include only the facts and figures; no commentary or judgment.

Box is supposed to ship on 10th of every month from Toronto, Ontario.

Number of months shipped on time or early: 4/4
Number of months shipped late: 0/4
Average number of days in transit: 1.25

Topbox promises 4 deluxe beauty samples every month.
