November Top Box review

My TopBox finally came after a few weeks of MIA (mailed incorrect address) then later taken as hostage for a day at Canada Post.

I thought I was not going to receive it.
Who is TopBox?
Another Canadian company competing with Luxe Box by Loose Button and Glymm Box.

Cake: Hand Cream - Full Size 3.4 oz @ $18 = sample :)
Deborah Lippman: Nail polish - Full Size .50 oz @ $19.95 = sample :)
Dr Brandt: Eye Serum - Full Size .50 oz @ $85 = sample size .085 oz @ $14.45
Stila: Illuminating tinted moisturizer - Full Size 1.70 oz @ $32 = sample size .17 oz @ $3.20

Total value of the package $55+

I received a *Bonus* deluxe sample because mishap with the mailing address.
The "deluxe" sample is the Caudalie: Premier Cru cream 1.7 oz @ $150 = sample size 0.06 oz @ $5.29
I have already tried this sample from my October Glymm Box.  Unfortunately, the sample is so small, I will be lucky if I can get 2 good uses out of it.  I would say this is a sample, not a "deluxe" sample.  I can't say I like the product and I doubt I will be spending $150 for the bottle.

I have always wanted to try Cake.
The lotion smells like vanilla cake.
I would love to try more of their products :)

My nail polish collection is grow and grow.
Deborah Lippman adds a nice touch to my pre painted nail polish.
Not sure if I will pay $20 for a nail polish.

I will be most like giving the Dr. Brandt Eye Serum to my mom.
It is too bad it does not help the dark circles under my eyes.

I was hoping to try Stila's lip gloss but instead I have the tinted moisturizer.  Am I the only one?  I have read/watched other blogs/youtube videos and so far everyone has the lip gloss.  Very odd.  I tried it and I like it.  I might buy the regular size bottle...

Overall...I am happy to receive my box but I doubt my bonus makes up for the mistake/error/glitch in the system.  However, I am glad that they were working really hard and posting updates to let us know the status of the package.

The Bottom Line:
Experience with my first Top Box - 2/5
Customer Service - 5/5
Products received - 4/5
The surprise - n/a
Favourite product received - Cake lotion

I cant wait for my December box.
I hope it will have a no delivery issues.
Ta ta for now.
