December 2015 Topbox Review - Canadian Beauty Sample Subscription Unboxing

This post contains referral links

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, which is a box that focuses on one brand or product for the whole box.

TopBox is a Canadian company and only ships to Canada. There is usually a month or two waitlist for this subscription. 

For December, I wished for a Benefit prive Topbox - they are offering a sneak peek at a new product this month! When you wish for a prive box, you are not always guaranteed it, but I did get it this month! Here is a look:


Topbox always includes a product card outlining the products included in the box:



I am excited to try the lash primer before the general public gets to! Here is a look at the Benefit goodies:

Here is a closer look at the goodies inside:

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Tinted Lash Primer ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $10.33 (full size is 0.3 oz for $31). A mink-brown lash primer that tints, defines, and primes lashes for a natural, feathery look—plus, it can be paired with your favorite mascara for boosted length and separation. 

This product isn't actually released for purchase until December 26 - I love that those of us with Topbox get to try it a little early!! (I also know Sephora is offering it as a reward with purchase so Topbox isn't the only place, but I'm still excited to have early access!) This sounds like a product I will enjoy using so I'm looking forward to testing it - you can watch for my review soon! 



Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $10.33 (full size is 0.3 oz for $31). A mascara inspired by hair rollers, this super-curling and lifting mascara gives a sexy, wide-eyed look. Its patent-pending Hook ‘n’ Roll™ brush features tiny custom-designed hooks to catch, lift, and curl even short and straight lashes. 

I LOOOVE this mascara! I can't believe I haven't featured it on a monthly favorites yet! I received this in a past Topbox when it was released! So good - I just about finished mine so I'm happy to have another! 

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara ~ sample size 0.1 oz for $10.33 (fill size is 0.3 oz for $31). A lengthening mascara that curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for an "out-of-here" look—now available in three vibrant shades. 

I know this mascara is a huge fan favorite, but it is actually not my favorite. I find the brush to pokey and hard. I will pass this on! 



Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel ~ sample size 0.03 oz for $9 (full size is 0.1 for $30). A brow-volumizing fiber gel.

I received the shade medium/deep which is perfect because I have this product already in that shade! I featured this on my October Favorites post and I still really like it! Happy to have a back up! 

Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Remover ~ foil sample (full size is 50 ml for $23). A waterproof eye makeup remover that completely lifts away makeup. 

I have tried this makeup remover before and I'm not the biggest fan - I find it a little eye stinging. I will probably keep this though, just because the package is easy to travel or stay overnight with! 

Topbox came with 5 products, all sample sizes and a total value of $39.99. I'm really happy with this Benefit prive box and am really excited for most of the products included! I love Benefit and I al always so happy when Topbox gets early access to a product for us to try out! 

This month we also got the option to add on a $10 surprise - I selected 1 and here is a look at what I received:

So Susan Haute Light - Highlighting Pencil ~ $19.95. A universally flattering ivory cream crayon that brings your best features to light! Made with White Truffle extract & Eyeseryl® peptide to help reduce eyebags and increase skin elasticity.

This is a multi-use pencil that can be used on the brow bone, cheek bone, to hid dark circles, or as an eyeshadow base. This is an interesting product, but I will probably pass it on - I received one a while back in an Ipsy bag and only use it once in a while.
