January 2013 TopBox – Clinique Privé Box

January 2013 Topbox, Clinique Prive Box – that’s certainly a mouthful! I can’t remember having signed up for this privé box. I go through skin care items more quickly than other beauty box goodies. Needless to say, I’m happy to have received such items. In the past, I was not overly extatic about the December 2012 Topbox.

Random thought: these types of samples are usually given out at Clinique counters whenever there’s a promotion with purchase happening. Let’s move on to the contents of the box.

January 2013 Topbox – Clinique Privé Box


The packaging is typical of the normal monthly topboxes, except the tube and product information card have been branded for Clinique.

Clinique Clarifying Lotion


This clarifying lotion is formulated for combination and oily skin to “help lift the world’s impurities,” the product comes in two sizes 200mL for $16 or 400mL for $27 – 30mL sample.

Clinique Rinse Off Eye Makeup Remover


This makeup remover is intended to remove makeup from the eyes and brows or spot on makeup fixes. It’s an oil-free remover and the original size is 125mL retailing for $25 – 60mL sample.

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo


This duo is in the shade Strawberry fudge, very appropriately named as you can tell. The pink shadow has a golden shimmer to it and the brown reminds me of a deeper version of MAC’s Sable. Both shadows are very smooth to the touch and the full size 2.5g duo retails for $25 – 1.5g sample.


Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle & UV Damage Corrector


I gave this to my mom, just putting that out there. Not that she has a lot of wrinkles or anything, but UV damage is one of her main skin concerns and so I have that checked off in my Topbox profile. This corrector claims that 12 weeks of use will visibly reduce wrinkles in a similar way to dermatological laser procedures. The product comes in two sizes, 30mL for $57 and 50mL for $86 – we received a very small 7mL sample.

What has your experience been like with the January Topbox? Did you receive the Clinique privé box?
