I Got My January Privé Box (Topbox)!

I was at home sick on Friday (darn flu season!), so my day was definitely brightened the much anticipated January Topbox being delivered to my doorstep. This month, Topbox was previewing a new concept, called the Privé box, where it highlights one company and provides several products from this one brand. For those lucky subscribers who lived in the GTA, we had a bit of a pre-preview with the Lise Watier bonus box a few months ago (I can post pictures and a review if you’re interested – please let me know!).



This month’s brand was a definite favourite – Clinique!


We got a TON of great skin care products in this box, all of which I’m very excited to use! Included in this month’s box were the following:

Clinique Clarifying Lotion (Step 2 of the 3 step sin care routine) for Combination Skin
Clinique Rinse Off Eye Makeup Solvent
Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow Duo
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector

I believe the lotion is supposed to act as a toner, which is something I’ve been looking to buy lately. It’s a new year’s resolution of mine to start taking better care or my skin, so this will definitely help me on my way!

I’m thrilled to receive a makeup remover, because I wear a TON of eyeliner and mascara (and also have the bad habit of sleeping with my makeup on… eek!). I’ll definitely report back on how this works out for me.

The eyeshadow was in the duo “Strawberry Fudge” and consisted of a light strawberry pink and a dark chocolatey brown (they named the duo so aptly :P). As you can see from my swatch, the colour payoff isn’t as great on darker skin tones like mine – the pink ends up looking like a faint gold shimmer. However, I’m sure once I layer the shadows on top of a primed lid, they’ll look wonderful :).

As for the wrinkle and UV damage corrector, I feel like I’m a bit young for it, but I guess it doesn’t hurt to start early. If anything, I can pass it along to a lucky friend or coworker :).

Have you received your Privé box? What did you think?

Hope you have an awesome week!
