Toppbox December 2018-Full Review

I think it’s fair to say that 2018 was the year of subscription boxes in the UK. Some are great and some are just OK, but there is one box that is going stronger and stronger every month - and that’s Toppbox. After all, this is the only grooming/beauty box for men in the UK and I absolutely love it. So let’s have a look at what’s inside the December 2018 Toppbox.

inside the box


Christoper Courtney Superfood Intensive Lifting Serum.

I discovered this British Brand thanks to Toppbox a few months ago when they included an excellent eye serum. This super effective serum helps lift, firm and tone the skin. Use it morning and evening for quick visible results! Retail price: £42.95


Monuskin for Men Energy Body Rub.

Monuskin is another amazing brand that I discovered thanks to Toppbox. Their facial scrub is probably the best one on the market right now (highly recommended!). This Energy Body Rub is an Aloe Vera and Arnica based gel which can be applied to your muscles to feel an instant soothing sensation. Another great product from Monuskin. Retail price: £21.95


Tooth Brush from Anatomicals.

This is probably the most well known brand included in the December Toppbox. Anatomicals produces a funky selection of skincare products and accessories for men. This toothbrush is no exception with a great funky colour and case, but the most important thing is that each bristle of this toothbrush is blended with binchotan charcoal (a powerful deodorising effect to remove plaque and fight bad breath). Available at Asos for £4.50


Tooth Whitening Tooth Paste from Anatomicals.

The perfect accessory to your brand new shiny toothpaste! This baking soda based tooth brush (peroxides/parabens free) will remove stains and aids in the prevention of cavities. Available at Asos £4.50


Vegan Perfume N 143 from Eden Perfumes.

If you are Vegan this product is perfect for you. Eden Perfumes is specialised in designing fragrances that are 100% vegan and cruelty free. Eden Perfumes can match your favourite fragrance (available on their website) and they last longer too thanks to a higher concentration. The fragrance included in this month’s box (No. 143) is the natural alternative, cruelty free, vegan equivalent to ‘The One’ Men's by Dolce & Gabbana. It’s a really masculine, woody fragrance that is perfect for a night out. It smells amazing and lasts for hours…..definitively my type of fragrance. £24.00 for the 50ml at Edenperfumes


Howard Matthews Karen Label Pin.

From time to time, Toppbox will add a special fashion accessory (I’ve previously received a tie, socks etc). This month it is a fashionable label pin designed in Canada and hand crafted in Hong Kong. This design is exclusive to Toppbox. A very nice addition, and perfect for a New Years Eve Party!


final thoughts

Toppbox is my favourite box out there. Every month it is packed with plenty of great products (most of them made in the UK), and it costs only £19. And one more thing, it is shipped with legendary British punctuality. So what’s not to like? Join Toppbox now and enjoy 30% off your first Toppbox using coupon code DAD30 at checkout. Visit:
