February 2013 Topbox | Benefit Privè Box

by - February 10, 2013

Well I am a happy camper! I received the Benefit Topbox! {{{Teresa does a happy dance}}}

I was soooo hoping I would receive this box. I am a huge fan of Benefit products and there were a few items I wanted to try that were in this Privè box.

I like the idea of the Privè boxes. You get to try a larger sampling of one beauty company’s products to see if the company is a good fit for you. For $12 a month, you cannot go wrong.

This box’s theme was Chinese New Year. The tube was hot pink and decorated with a snake representing the Year of the Snake and a Benefit lady. So cute – it is going on my bookcase in my bedroom LOL.

Let’s see what was in this box:

The POREfessional          deluxe sample
Full size: 22ml/$34
I have wanted to try this primer for so long but I wanted to get through my stash of primers before buying another one. Yippee!

Benetint              deluxe sample  
Full Size: 12.5ml/$36
This is a rose liquid tint for the cheeks and lips. It looks scary but it is a very pretty tint.

Dandelion blush               deluxe sample
Full Size: 7g/$36
Another product I have wanted to try. It is a soft pink blush. Sp pretty.

Ultra Plush Dandelion lip gloss    deluxe sample
Full Size: 15ml/$18
Soft pearly pink. I have heard good things about the Benefit lipglosses. I cannot wait to try this.

Total Moisture Facial Cream        deluxe sample
Full size 48.2g/$42
A hydra-concentrated facial cream with tri-radiance complex.
I have been curious about the Benefit skin care line. It says it super hydrating so...Need it! 

Fine One One      paper sample
Full Size: 8g/$36
This is a recently released product. It comes in a twist up tube. It is a cream blush and lip product.

We also received an invite to a Benefit event at a Sephora or Shoppers Drug Mart in Vancouver, Burnaby, Edmonton, Markham or Toronto. None of these locales are close me L poop.

All I can say is if Benefit had put out one of their sampling boxes containing these items, I would have bought it. I was trying to get a She is So Jetset box but everywhere I went they were sold out but Benefit is always coming out with kits. Now I have my eye on the Go TropiCORAL Lip and Cheek kit ($32 which is sold out at Sephora) or maybe the Coral My World kit ($15).

February 2013 Topbox - Benefit

I have found a love for Benefit from my beauty boxes. I received the They’re Real mascara in one of my boxes and I had to get a full sized version of it pronto.

Now I can’t wait to see what is in the other Privè boxes. The regular monthly box looks pretty awesome this month as well (MUFE, Deborah Lippmann, B Kamins etc)! I wish I could have gotten both this month!

    1. Go to TOPBOX.CA and apply to get on the waiting list. For 12$ a month you have specially selected samples sent to you in a fun tube on the 10th. Every month is different and sometimes the boxes everyone gets are different (they are tailored to your preferences outlined in a survey you take once you have secured your place on their mailing list.)
      Its well worth the 12$ a month to get something awesome and fun in the mail aside from bills and junkmail.

    2. This particular Prive box is sold out. Topbox had some for sale yesterday but I see the status is SOLD OUT. :(

      As Rose said, you can go to www.Topbox.ca and sign up for a monthly subscription. I think the wait is about 2 months right now. I can email you a refrral link if you want. It may or may not help the process. It is worth the $!2/mth.

  3. I also got the Benefit Prive Topbox. I LOVEloveLOVE the POREfessional Primer! I used it under my BB and used some of the Dandelion powder on top of it and the effect was marvelous. I actually got a compliment from my MIL! Hope you enjoy the products as much as I do.

    1. I hope I enjoy them too. I tried the POREprofessional out today and I really like to so far. The lipgloss was so pretty. Love playing with my Benefit goodies!

  4. I received the exact same items with my Topbox :) I also have the Go Tropicoral and enjoy using it

    1. Oh I so want the Go TropiCoral! It looks so summery fun!

  5. Love the box you got! Cant wait for the March box. My first box :D

    1. So happy for you! Did you preselect a Prive box? There was a large selection this time around!
