Topbox February Edition/Guest Post

In January I believe Topbox announced that they were going to be doing something a little different with their montly boxes. Its called the Prive Boxes. In January you got to select one of the following three: Benefit, Lippy Girl or the Miracle 10. If none of those appeal to you then you would get the normal regular box.

I think the prive boxes were sent fairly early compared to the regular boxes although I can’t be 100%  sure of that.

I didn’t receive any tracking info until my box (aka tube) was delivered. I had no idea what I would be getting because no one was notified. Do I like the idea of the prive box, I guess it would depend on what they were offering.

This month I am thrilled with the box becauseI was chosen to receive the Benefit tube and I am absolutely thrilled I actually didn’t think I was going to get one. I am so happy with what I got and there is a few new items for me to try that I have always been wanting to try.

The Benefit box has a Chinese New Year theme and I think one of the reasons it was sent early is because various Sephoras and Shopper Drug Marts are doing promos in the store. Oh how I wish there was one closer to me that is taking part.

Its the year of the Snake and now I’m one who generally shows away from reptiles but this one is super cute. I am actually going to display this tube on my dresser because its that cute.

I was thrilled when I opened the tube and saw all these amazing goodies tumble out.

Inside the tube was a product card like in previous boxes, along with a card from Benefit informing us Topboxers where events were taking place, and a envelope with a sample of Fine One One. I have been hearing so many things about this that I actually want to purchase it. Its basically just a very small sample that you can use to brighten your cheeks and your lips giving you an instant lift, shape and pop. I am really curious about this and I think the next time I am in Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart I am going to ask about this and how does it work. I like multipurpose items. The fill size is 8g for $36.

 
Other items in the box are:
 
~POREfessional in a 7.5ml tube. The full size is 22ml for $34. This is suppose to minimize the appearance of pores. It can be worn under and over make up which I love and looking forward to trying this out.
 
~Total Moisture Facial Cream in a 8.9g jar and the full size is 48.2g for $42. The jar is super cute and it smells really nice. I am excited to try this as I have another Benefit facial sampler from a previous box that I would like use with this.
 
~Benetint in a 2.5ml sample and the full size is 12.5ml for $36. I have seen this but never purchase it because honestly the red scares the heck out of me. Its a lip and cheek stain.
 
~Finally the last item is the Dandelion Gloss and Powder pack. First thing I will talk about is the gloss. Its a sample size of 6.5ml and the full size is 15ml for $18. I actually already have this one because I bought the Benefit lip Gloss collection last year and I love it so having this one is really nice and I can throw it in my purse to use during the day.
 
Something I have honestly been eyeing is the Brightening face powder. It looks like a pretty shade and I am so excited to try it out. The sample size is 3.0g and the full size is 7g for $36
 
So what did you think of the February box? Was it worth the $14 fee? I am really pleased and thrilled I got it but I am wondering what will be February’s pick and if I will get what I want again or will it be a regular box.
 
Thanks Cindy for allowing me to be a part of your blog and allowing me to share what I got this month in my Topbox.

  1. As a new sub to Topbox, february was my first box I got from them. Again, since I was new to them, I got the email for prive box which included Benefit, Lippy, Miracle 10 AND Clinique (Clinique was January prive box). As I was interested in all except Lippy…but of course most excited about receiving benefit…I checked everything in the list but Lippy.
    What was bad is that there was no way in letting them know what was my fist choice, second,…etc
    So, I got the Clinique box which was my last choice 🙁 It was a ok box but was disapointed cause I really wanted Benefit or at least miracle 10. Luckily, in a way, one morning I woke up to an email saying they were selling the extra Benefit boxes they had in stock. In the end I got my benefit box, which was FABULOUS but still, had to pay for 2 boxes in february.
    Now, I wonder if they will change anything to the way we can opt for a prive box. I heard that some girls got boxes they didn’t even chose on the list which was sad. I also saw a spoiler from one of the march prive box and was not very impressed. We’ll have to wait and see if I just waitfor the normal box..which was grat in february by the way.
