December 2012 Topbox

Hello! Merry Christmas, if you celebrate and merry life if you don’t! I got my December 2012 Topbox in the mail a few days ago. This is my first time receiving a box from topbox.ca ever. I was on the waiting list since July, but apparently it was not suppose to take that long. I spoke with their customer service to have the situation rectified at the end on November.

I had previously heard that this was the box service to be subscribed too, I’m not entirely sure yet. Let us look into the products, shall we?!

December 2012 Topbox

Benefit They’re Real mascara

A long wearing, jet black, glossy formula mascara. I’ve heard that this was similar to the Big Fatty mascara by Urban Decay, except that this has a glossy formula.

Cuccio Naturale Butter Blend

A moisturizing, non-oily intense hydrating treatment for silky smooth skin. I found this to absorb into the skin very quickly, but I don’t find it extremely moisturizing, it is just ok.

Cover FX Clear Prep

An instantly mattifying primer that smooths, blurs lines and pores while allowing skin to breaths. I’m looking forward to trying this out as I am always in the market for skin mattifying products, even in the dead of winter.

Goldwell Jelly Boost

A hair product for creating body and texture in both long and short hair styles.

To be honest, I found the box underwhelming, especially for a holiday box! I have been anticipating this box since the summer, since I have heard so many rave reviews about the service. I knew going into this that there would only be 4 “luxury” samples and I was not expecting anything full sized, however, I feel like this box lacks a lot of humph! Sorry, I’m at a loss for words. I hope the next box will be more interesting.

Limited Edition Men’s Holiday Topbox


Surprise! I also filmed a video with my boyfriend about the limited edition men’s holiday box! I bought it for him because I thought it would be cool for him to try new things, plus he has always wanted a one blade razor (fault of 007, who knows). You can watch that above, be sure to subscribe to my channel for tutorials, hauls and styling videos!

Are any of you subscribed to them? What did you think of the products in the box?

Happy Holidays!
