Topbox Review - June 2014 - Beauty Subscription Box

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

My Topbox shipped on Friday the 13th and arrived Tuesday the 17th. That's the longest shipping time I've ever encountered with Topbox, but no complaints. Their shipping is still the best. I opted for a regular Topbox this month and here is what I received...

First look

 Product card

Bioderma Atoderm Gentle Shower Gel (100ml, $3)

Vasanti Cosmetics Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator (20g, $5.67)

China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Wait N' Sea (14ml full size, $12)

Barefoot Venus Lip Fable in Cotton Candy (4g full size, $7.50)


The June Topbox contained 4 products with an estimated retail value of $28.17. I paid $13.44 for this box ($12 plus tax). It's not the highest value Topbox I've received but it's still pretty good. I'm excited for the Vasanti Brighten Up! product. I've seen it before in other boxes and always wanted to try it. The nail polish is a bit of a bummer for me as I am so inundated with nail polish, and I don't really like the colour. I love Barefoot Venus products and the Cotton Candy scent smells yummy. The shower gel smells fresh and clean and it will be put to use. Not a terrible box, but not the best. Overall I'm satisfied.

What did you receive in your June Topbox?

  1. I must have chose the perfume samples. They were exactly that, all sample sizes like you can get for free at any department store. One of them wasn't even a mini spray bottle. Kind of disappointing so I'm already looking forward to July. I am so curious about that shower gel, I didn't know Bioderma made shower gel. I'll have to go find it at Shoppers and see what it smells like.

    1. I'm surprised they even offered the perfume box. The shower gel isn't bad. Smells clean and fresh.

  2. I got exactly the same items! I was excited for everything! I love the nail polish (brand and color) and the facial cleanser! The lip stuff is cute, but personally I hate lip gloss that comes in a tin. Packaging always looks cute but it always scares me to throw it in my purse or something. Also the body wash is great, but it doesn't have much of a smell!

    1. I agree about lip tins. Not very hygienic.

  3. My items were entirely different. Review will be up at prettytastyreviews.blogspot.com
    The Bioderma shower gel sells for more than $3, if you can find the sample size for sale at Shoppers or pharmaplus-I recall it was less than $5 in the winter.
    But almost sure the shower gel is a 200ml size usually and $20 plus tax....

    1. The pricing is based on the product card pictured above, as provided by Topbox... 500ml of shower gel retails for $14.95 at Shoppers, Rexall, Murale, and other stores.
