TopBox June 2015 Review + #VichyWorksForMe Bonus

TopBox is a Canadian Beauty Box. It’s an affordable option if you’re looking to explore new brands and try some new products.

The way Topbox works is a few weeks prior to shipping every subscriber receives an email asking them to create their Wish List, you get a list of a few different options and if you like any of them you can add one of TopBox’s prive boxes to your ‘wishlist’ you can wish for as many boxes as you like or opt for a regular Topbox. Of course there’s no guarantee you’ll get your wish you may still end up with a regular topbox. This month none of the prive boxes appealed to me so I opted for the regular topbox.

Subscription Box: TopBox
Cost: $12 Free Shipping (Canada Only)+Tax  / month
What you get:  4 samples of beauty and skincare products

When I went to pickup my June Topbox from the concierge this month he gave me a huge box. I thought it was something else until I opened it up and found that I was chosen to participate in the #VichyWorksforme promotion and had received 3 full size products from the Vichy Idealia Line. Yay!!

 Benefit – they’re Real push-up liner in beyond brown 0.36g $9.50

Benefit Push up Liner

They’re Real Push up Liner in Beyond Brown

This is a brand new Benefit product and it wasn’t available in stores until around 10 days after we received our boxes. I love that we got a sneak peak, I think everyone that received this item got it in the Beyond Brown colour but the line includes 3 other colours Beyond Purple, Beyond Blue and Beyond Green. Definitely my favourite item in my topbox this month. The sample size was 0.36g and a full size is 1.13g and retails for $31

China Glaze Nail Lacquer – Hawaiian Punch Full size $10


China Glaze Hawaiian Punch

China Glaze Hawaiian Punch

I don’t usually wear bright nail colours, but it’s nice to have some on hand for summer and whenever I’m in the mood for something different. This china glaze polish came in the shade Hawaiian Punch and it’s a bright red, perfect for summer time!

Paula’s Choice – Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant – 30mL $6.60

Paula's Choice BHA Liquid

Paula’s Choice BHA Liquid

I received this sample in my Spring Luxe Box. I’ve been contemplating buying a full size so I’m happy I received another one. It works really well to minimize pores.

Fruits&Passion Aloe Face Mask $2.50

Fruits&Passion Aloe Face Mask

Fruits&Passion Aloe Face Mask

I received this Aloe Mask in my Summer 2015 Luxe Box I like face masks but it would have been nice to receive a different variety. It also came with an in-store coupon for a free Lip or Eye patch.

Holt Renfrew In Store Nail File Offer

Nail File

Every member received a Holt Renfrew in store coupon for one Deborah Lippmann Smooth Operator Nail File worth about $15.

#Vichyworksforme Experience Package


LouLou and Vichy #VichyWorksForMe

I think I remember filling out a few survey questions about my skin while choosing my prive boxes for June. My profile was a match for the Vichy Skin Idealia line and I was 1 of 500 women to be chosen to for the #VichyWorksForMe Experience. So Exciting! I received 3 full size products from the Idealia Line I did see on Instagram that other people received different product lines that matched their skin profile.
Idealia Eyes retails for $39
Idealia Life Serum retails for $54
Idealia Skin Sleep retails for $52

Skin sleep is for people like me who don’t get enough rest and it shows on their skin. My skin was looking dull and I just look tired all the time.  I’ve been using the life serum in the day and the skin sleep in the night for about a week and a half and I do notice that my skin is brighter and looks more rested, I had to do a double take of myself when I passed by the mirror this morning because my skin looked so fresh when I woke up. The products really work and I don’t know if I’ll purchase all three products I will definitely get the skin sleep when this one runs out. A little bit goes a long way so it should last a good amount of time.


#VichyWorksforMe Products Vichy Idealia Line

Overall I loved this month’s Topbox. Even though I received two repeat items from my LuxeBoxes they were both items I liked and will use. I paid $13.56 for my box and received about $27 worth of products plus another $17 in free product in store coupons. The Vichy Products retail for $140+ dollars. I’d say I got my money’s worth for sure. If you’d like to learn more about Topbox you can click HERE.  When I signed up in January there was a short wait list, but it was just 1 or 2 months I think and I’m not sure if there is still a waitlist.
If you’d like I can email you a referral but to be honest I’m not sure if that will let you skip the wait list or not.
