Topbox January 2013 Prive Box

So I’m sure everyone has already seen this, but I thought I’d make a post about my January Topbox and thoughts on it anyways :)

So about a month ago Topbox announced that they were starting to do “Prive boxes” every once in a while, that featured several products from only one brand, rather than their usual mix of assorted brands. The first box would be in January, with the brand kept secret (although later boxes would be known in advance).

After much anticipation, here’s what I got:

The January Prive Box: Clinique!

The January Prive Box: Clinique!

From left to right:

Clinique Clarifying Lotion – 30mL ($2.40) I’ve never tried their type 3 toner before so it’s good to get one of these to try out.  It’s a generous size that should last for quite a while.

Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector – 7mL ($13.30) This is one of their newest products, so it’s great to have included in this box! I think I’ll be passing this onto my mom though because I have no wrinkles to speak of yet.

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in “Strawberry Fudge” – 1.6g ($16) Love this! I’m not a huge fan of pink eyeshadow, but I absolutely looove the compact it’s housed in.  The mirror finish is so cute, and doubles as a mirror.

Rinse Off Eye Makeup Solvent – 60mL ($12) Makeup remover.. nothing exciting, but always good to have on hand.  I’ve always liked this, so it’s nice to have another backup. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve had to buy makeup remover, I’ve gotten so many from gift with purchases.


My immediate thoughts: meh.

It’s not that I don’t like Clinique, I love the brand!  But I’ve received several of these products in the past for free from gift with purchases, and there was a bit too much skincare in here for my liking. Still, it’s a great box for anyone who has never tried Clinique before, and I’m a huge fan of this feature-one-brand thing – next month is Benefit!  Super stoked.

What did you think about the box?
