My January Topbox has arrived! Everyone this month received a special prive box - it's a specially curated box with products from only one brand. In future months you can opt-in for your chance to sample prive boxes (future boxes include Benefit, Lippy Girl and Miracle 10) or receive the regular Topbox. But to roll out the program this month they started with an "iconic" brand...
|What I received|
I've been a fan of Clinique since I was a teenager. WAY before all these beauty boxes started, my favourite thing was to get the bonus bags at the Clinique counter (gift with purchase). I know other cosmetic companies do this but the Clinique bags were always the best! I would get the bag a few times a year, when purchasing a refill of the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. That yellow lotion was my go-to for years, until my skin started getting drier and I found it wasn't as quenching as I needed it to be. Then the beauty boxes started and I got the chance to sample all different kinds of creams. Still, it's very nice to revisit a trusted brand.

Overall, I'm very happy with this Clinique prive box. All of these items would be included for free in various bonus bags that they offer from time to time (at Sears or the Bay) as gifts with purchase. The difference is these samples were purchased (as part of my monthly Topbox membership) and I didn't pay minimum $25/$30 at the cosmetics counter. So it is still a good value. I think I'm most excited for the Clarifying Lotion, as I haven't used it before and wonder if it really will be a good addition to my night time skincare routine.
