Unboxing Topbox, January 2018

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for a surprise box!

I keep hoping that they’ll have a prive box with items I want because I really love those more than the surprise boxes. Here’s hoping they have few good options for February.

All prices are in Canadian Dollars

Cougar Cosmetics Perfect Pout Lip Plumper
Full-Size Price: $25.96 (10mL), this is a full-size item

I’ve never heard of Cougar Cosmetics before but they are a beauty brand out of the UK! That’s exciting! They have skincare, makeup and haircare items. The price is high for this because of the conversion rate from GBP to CAD, so I’m happy I have it in my Topbox to test.

This lip plumper mimic’s hyaluronic acid injection by doubling its synthesis level but also stimulates the synthesis of matrix and dermal-epidermal junction molecules. (www.cougarbeautyproducts.com)

The reviews on the website are pretty great so I’m looking forward to this plumping up my lips. I like that it’s clear and it has a gloss-like consistency. My only drawback is that it smells like Vick’s Vaporub :/

Glamglow Waterburst™ Hydrated Glow Moisturizer
Full Size Price: $62.00 (50mL), Sample Price: $6.20 (5mL)

YESS!!!! Topbox bringing in the Glamglow samples! I love that this is the waterburst moisturizer, I can’t have too many hydrating products so I’m excited about this.

It has a light and creamy texture that feels like water melting into the skin. I’m also loving the gummy candy scent.

Nioxin Instant Fullness Dry Cleanser
Full Size Price: $25.99 (4.22oz), Sample Price: $9.36 (1.52oz)

Ask me two years ago and I would have told you that I stay as far as possible from anything that claims to be volumizing.

Today, however, I’m all about fullness. I’m looking forward to testing this out and determining how I feel about it.

Cake Beauty Heavy Cream
Full Size Price: $22.00 (150mL), Sample Price: $4.40 (30mL)

I love the scent of the Cake Beauty Hand/Body creams and with winter now I have a use for this.

My Thoughts

I got exciting items in this month’s box. I’m most excited to try the Cougar Beauty lip plumper. I’m really happy with Topbox and I hope they continue to bring boxes like this monthly. Total Value of my box: $45.92

Did you get Topbox? What have you received this month?

Lots of Love,

  1. I’ve never heard of Topbox before, but I do Ipsy and in the past I received a Cougar matte lipstick which I absolutely loved and this latest month I received the Cake Beauty Heavy Cream. Don’t get me wrong, I love Cake products, but this one was just WAY TOO THICK for me and really difficult to get out of the tube, but I do enjoy the scent. I think it’s best to just use on the hands cuz it was really hard to spread on other parts of the my body.

  2. I kind of hate the name “Courgar Cosmetics” – tacky, ugh!
    I had a tube of that Cake Beauty Heavy Cream – it’s great but man, is it THICK. I could barely squeeze it out of the tube.

    • Haha! I guess I didn’t really think of the name, I was more taken back by the scent!

      I personally love the delectable creams from Cake but this one is so needed right now because my hands are awful! This winter hasn’t been good for my skin.


  3. Sounds like you’re impressed with this month’s items and I can see why! The Glamglow moisturiser has funky packaging and the scent must be delicious! Is the lip plumper meant to tingle like other lip plumpers?

    • I’m pretty happy with this month. Topbox can be Ok at times so when I saw these items I was impressed!
      I enjoy the smell of the glamglow moisturizer. I like getting these samples because the products are always so expensive.
      I haven’t personally tried the lip plumper yet but the reviews online mention it tingles. Someone said it’s a “nice tingle”so hopefully that means it doesn’t burn.
