TopBox - RachhLoves Spring Favorites Review

What is TopBox RachhLoves Favourites?: TopBox is a monthly subscription box for Canada and they pair with the YouTuber RachhLoves(one of my favorite YouTubers) to create a favorites box (tube). I reviewed the Spring Favorites box and had to grab this Fall box when it showed up. I haven't seen anything about a Winter box but you bet I'd be all over that if/when it pops up.

How Much is TopBox RachhLoves Favourites?: The box is $22 (starting with the Fall Box that just was released) with free shipping to the US. It's obviously also available in Canada. (This box was $19.)


I always love these boxes. You know what you're going to get when you order it but it's still a fun box to get!

Burt's Bees Gloss Lip Crayon (Santorini Sunrise) ($5.69) - There was a choice of six colors and I thought this was going to be the color for me - I was wrong. It's too orange rather than being a deeper shade of orangey-red and it's just not a good color for me. The formula was quite nice, very moisturizing and glossy, as the name states.

CoverGirl Mascara (The Super Sizer) ($6.99) - Oh yes, this is such a good mascara. The formula isn't too wet but isn't too tacky, the brush is amazing at separating your lashes. I found it did a great job lengthening lashes but it also held a curl (without actually curling prior to application). My lashes are long-ish but tend to stay pretty flat without some help and this gave the help. It's amazing, especially for it being a drugstore mascara.

Smashbox Cover Shot Palette Deluxe Sample (Golden Hour) (Turned On/Psyched) ($5.37) -  Psyched is the top color, Turned On is the bottom. I had previously purchased one of the Cover Shot palettes, specifically the Ablaze one (I'm having an issue turning down warm and red-based eyeshadow palettes) so I had known that I loved the formula already. It's a super smooth formula, blends well, and has a great sheen.

essie Nail Polish (Where's My Chauffeur) ($8.50) - Don't you just love how you can always get an essie polish from your Top Box RachhLoves box? This time, you could choose between five shades and get a full-size polish. I chose the bluest blue and it is a beautiful one at that. essie's formula is really good for a drugstore polish so it's definitely one I would recommend. 

First Aid Beauty Bouncy Mask ($5.60) - First Aid Beauty is my go-to lotion for the winter, so I was quite thrilled to see it would be featured in this box. This mask is the one to use the night before an event to give a mini-facial...or just use it weekly to always feel like you've had a facial without having to go to a spa and deal with that self-consciousness and anxiety (I might be putting a lot of my own experiences there).


Swatches L-R: Santorini Sunrise, Turned On, Psyched


The value of this box (tube) was $32.15, more than the cost of the box. Like I mentioned before, I always love getting these because I know ahead of time what I'll be getting and I really love the ability to customize the box to my preferences. 

As always, let me know what you thought of this box review in the comments!
