Topbox October 2018 Privé Box Review

Topbox is a Canadian subscription box and currently the subscription box that I love. For those who are not familiar with Topbox, there is actually something that I like so much about this subscription, and that is the Wishlist option. Every month, they send email for subscribers to choose a set of products indicated in their Wishlist. Not all wish gets granted because they are not genies. Lol. And ever since I signed up with Topbox, I was blessed 3 times when my wish was granted. This is my third granted wish and I was over the moon when I received it!

Today I will give my honest review of the October 2018 Privé Box that I received. This review is short since I only have one product to review.

Name of the Box: Topbox

Cost: $12 CAD + tax (free shipping)

What you will get: Each month, subscribers will get four beauty samples. Samples can range from skincare, bodycare, makeup, haircare and fragrance. The samples are from prestige brands. Some of these brands are well known and others are newly launched or small and niche.

 Laneige BB Cushion Hydra Radiance SPF 50 in Cinnamon 15 g x 2 – $49
A radiance-enhancing Laneige BB Cushion, is infused with Melacrusher to brighten skin and double-coated pigments to hydrate. Skin-perfecting BB Cushion for a flawless, brighter complexion. On-the-go beauty made easy: hydration, sun protection, and natural coverage.

I didn’t know anything about BB cushion until my Korean friend showed me this product. She said it is now what every Korean’s are using. At first, I was indifferent until I got curious and convinced that I need to get one for myself. My friend uses Clio, so I was certain I am getting Clio too. That changed when my wish was granted and I was given the coveted Laneige BB cushion.

As of now, I have pimple scar from the recent breakouts due to the change in weather. The BB cushion gave me smooth finish however, it failed to cover my blemishes which I understand since even BB creams don’t function like that. Based on the instruction, I will have to reapply every 2 hours which I find very inconvenient but yes it is necessary because, after 2 hours, it is good as bare faced if you will not retouch. I like that it is SPF 50 because I am protected from sun damage and my skin texture has improved greatly. This is an ideal product for everyone who just wants something light and doesn’t want to use foundation.

Total Product Value: C$49

Amount paid for this subscription: C$12

How much I saved: C$37
