Topbox February 2017

Topbox is a monthly Canadian subscription box featuring four beauty samples ranging from skincare, body-care, makeup, hair-care and fragrance. It costs $12 a month with free shipping. You can also opt to receive a special Prive box each month. These are usually brand specific and you know the items before hand. At the start of the month you are able to make a “wishlist” of which boxes you would like to receive, though you are never guaranteed the Prive box.

Final Thoughts

This wasn’t a bad month. I wish that the coconut oil was either in multiple smaller packages or in a bottle because that is too much to use on my hair and it would be nice to use it more than once to see if it makes any difference. I haven’t had a chance to try the nail polish yet, but I’m pretty rough on my hands (likely because of the gym) and nail polish is generally chipping after a day, if it even lasts that long. I’m excited to see how well this one does.
