A Very Late January Topbox Post

Oh, hi! I've missed you. Please allow me to ease back into this-

Welcome to my very belated January Topbox review.

I have never discussed Topbox on this blog before, but it's a monthly subscription box (much like Glossybox, Birchbox, etc.) here in Canada. You can join here if you'd like.

I've been getting the box for maybe 4-5 months now, and have been impressed. As you can see from the top photo, this month's box featured only Clinique products in what Topbox is called a "Prive" box. I absolutely love the concept, and the products.

1. Eyeshadow duo in "like mink"- I am so impressed with this eyeshadow. I mean, sure its just eyeshadow, but, it has just the right amount of shimmer and I am grateful to have gotten two great neutral shades. Also, I cannot not mention the sliding chrome packaging- it's so sleek and beautiful.

2. Rinse-off eye makeup solvent- I've tried many eye makeup removers in the past, and this one is a top competitor. It has no strong smell, doesn't sting the eyes, and leaves no oily residue (just as promised). The best part about it is that in taking off my mascara (Benefit's "They're Real"), I only needed one cotton pad per eye (this is amazing considering I usually need three or four). I must admit though, that for the price (around $20), I probably wouldn't purchase it full sized due to the fact that there are several drug store eye makeup removers that may not work as well, but are a lot cheaper.

3. Clarifying lotion- This is my favourite sample from this month's box. I use a toner daily for my acne prone skin (which is exactly what this is- I'm not even sure why it's called a "lotion"), and this one exceeded expectations. It doesn't burn when applied, and also doesn't have that terrible toner smell. It makes my skin feel squeaky clean and fresh. By chance, I actually had samples of a Clinique moisturizer and a foaming facial cleanser, so this sample happened to complete a mini 3-step system for me. It's been working great.

4. Repairwear laser focus wrinkle & UV damage corrector- I'm a bit young to give this an accurate review, but from what I've read online, this stuff is a miracle in a bottle. There is no smell and the texture is great- a very lightweight serum that feels like nothing at all when applied.

I'm a huge fan of Clinique products for the reason that they are remarkably fresh feeling. This month's Topbox has pushed me even further into a love for Clinique.
What do you think of the brand/these products?
