So there is Luxe Box and Glymm box and now there is Top Box! As you may have guessed, Top Box is a subscription based service which delivers 4 deluxe beauty samples to members each month. Ok, so now what makes them different? Top Box says they are committed to proving only “top” brands and this sets them apart. “Top” brands is always subjective, so let’s see what the November Top Box looked like and you can check out the brands offered in the October Top Box here.

Here is the pretty “box” – not really a box obviously but a tube!
Here’s what was inside, from L – R:
Cake Velveteen Hand Creme, Deborah Lippman “Some Enchanted Evening” Nail lacquer, Dr Brandt Time Arrest Eye Serum, Stila Lip Glaze
Here’s the information sheet that came with the box. I love reading about the brands that I receive.
I was most excited about the full sized nail polish. This Deborah Lippman one looks so gorgeous and perfect for the holidays! I’ve never tried Stila lip glosses so I’m looking forward to trying that out too. I’ll give the eye serum a test run although I usually don’t see a difference with most eye creams or serums I try. The full sized cream was a nice surprise too, but I’m admittedly not a huge Cake fan. I like the smells of their products I just usually don’t enjoy my hands and skin smelling like sugar and desserts LOL!
And here’s a pleasant surprise – a “coupon” to receive 8000 Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum points with a purchase of a full size Stila product!
Something else that makes Top Box a bit different from the Luxe Box and the Glymm Box that I noticed was the subscription process. You pay $10 plus applicable taxes but you don’t have to purchase a monthly or a yearly subscription at once. When you sign up to receive your Top Box your subscription is automatically renewed each month and you can cancel at anytime (just be sure to cancel before the 10th of each month or your Top Box will already be shipped out to you).
Another feature on the Top Box site that I found interesting was their statement about “reducing, reusing and recycling“. They cylinder sent above came wrapped in Kraft paper and not in another box. They purposely chose to not include a logo onto the box so that the consumer could reuse the box by perhaps using it to enclose a gift for someone else in. Their packaging is also 100% recyclable.
I love the idea of these boxes and it seems a new one comes out every few months hoping to top their competitors. I like that there is choice out there for the consumer – nothing wrong with a little competition right?
So what do you think of Top Box, the latest player in the world of beauty sample subscriptions?
