March 2015 Topbox - Canadian Sample Beauty Subscription Review

TopBox is a Canadian Beauty Box Subscription - for $12 CDN a month with free shipping, you will receive 4 deluxe sample size or full size products. You fill out a beauty profile and generally receive products based on what you have identified in the profile. Also, every month you have the option to wish for a "prive" box. A prive box is a box that focuses on one brand or product for the whole box.

TopBox is a Canadian company and only ships to Canada. The only downside to subscribing to TopBox is that there is a wait-list that can take a month or two to get off of.

For March, I "wished" for the Philosophy Prive Box - a "wish" for a prive box is not a guarantee you will get it!

Here is a look at my March TopBox:

Yay! The Philosophy box! I love this brand so much, so I am excited! 

Here is a look inside:

Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-Aging Lactic Acid Cleanser & Mask ~ sample size 1 oz for $4.38 (full size is 8 oz for $35). Ageless skin begins with a miraculous cleanser. miracle worker miraculous anti-aging lactic acid cleanser &; mask gently exfoliates with lactic acid as it completely cleanses and conditions for more radiant, youthful-looking skin. The formula features a lactic and amino acid complex to help brighten, even skin tone, and buffer the look of fine lines and wrinkles with less potential for irritation. The creamy formula completely removes surface dirt and oil while leaving skin feeling comfortable, and multitasks as a weekly brightening mask when left on the skin for 3-5 minutes.

I am okay with getting a cleanser, they get used. I am also really interested to see that this can double as a weekly mask - I will try that out! 

Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser For Face and Eyes ~ sample size 1 oz for $3.00 (full size 8 oz for $24). Purity Made Simple gently cleanses, tones, and melts away all face and eye makeup in one simple step, while lightly hydrating. Skin is left feeling perfectly clean, comfortable and balanced. 
I hope I'm not the only one who thinks it's weird that we got 2 cleansers in here? I like both of the them, but really would have preferred this product to be a moisturizer! 

Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti-aging Retinoid Eye Repair ~ sample size 0.07 oz for $9.52 (full size 0.5 for $68). Philosophy's exclusive hpr, high-performance retinoid, technology is now available for the delicate eye area in miracle worker miraculous anti-aging retinoid eye repair. Hpr delivers all the benefits of retinoid with less potential for irritation. It helps speed surface cell turnover and support natural collagen to dramatically improve the look wrinkles and discoloration, as targeted peptides reduce under-eye bags and dark circles.
I have really liked other Philosophy eye-creams I have received so this will be great I'm sure (and it is a big sample for an eye cream). 

Altogether, my March Topbox came with 3 products (all sample size) and a total value of $16.90. This is an okay value - I can't complain too much as I requested this prive box. I love Philosophy products and will use everything in here, but I do wish that there was another type of product instead of 2 cleansers!

What did you think of the March Topbox?


  1. Hmm, I've heard of this subscription but so far it has yet to impress me. Will read your other reviews on it though.

    1. Yes it is not for everyone - I like that it is only $12 and sometimes has some really great things!
