I have never ordered, or purchased, or subscribed to a beauty box, and lately I have been tempted by the idea of the beauty box; so after a quick research I decided to try on one, and I ordered the Canadian Topbox for a month, which cost me about $13.
I placed my order sometime in July, and I was supposed to get the box at my address on or shortly after August 15th. Once I placed my order for the month of August, Topbox sent me an email update advising me that I could personalize my beauty box by making wish lists and choosing to include specific items in my monthly beauty box, subject to availability. However, I didn’t want to personalize it in any way, I was totally ok with getting whatever items Topbox decided to include in it, because this is exactly what a beauty box is all about anyway, isn’t it – the surprise of the new cosmetic products that you may find inside, without knowing in advance what it would be.
On August 15th I got another email from Topbox letting me know that my box has been shipped, that it should arrive at my address shortly, and a spoil alert about what is going to be inside my beauty box when I receive it. I opened the email, but I tried not to read it, because I didn’t want to spoil the surprise!
The box arrived at my address yesterday, and I was very excited about what I would find inside. So, let’s unbox!
This is the package that I found in my mailbox yesterday.
Back to my beauty box – I unwrapped the purple paper tissue, and this is what I found inside.

So I’ll try them and see how good they are. :) My package had one more item, which I didn’t see in the envelope right away, but after I unwrapped the whole thing – this coupon.
All in all, I think I got a pretty good deal with my beauty box – the eyebrow waxing coupon and the products inside are well worth $13 that I paid for a Topbox monthly box, and maybe I’ll do it again in the future.
