TopBox January 2014

Received my January Topbox in the mail today. This month, I picked the Chinese New Year special edition Benefit box.

Comes in a very festive Chinese New Year(Year of the Horse) tube which is super cute.

Also included is a Benefit Chinese New Year red envelope.

4 Benefit products included:
Total Moisture Facial Cream 
Porefessional Face Primer
Bad Gal Lash Mascara

I was looking at my product information card and it says FakeUp concealer which is the only product I haven't tried from Benefit. I couldn't find it and just when I was about to email TopBox, I found a little sample package in my tube. Kind of disappointing as it is one of those tiniest one-time use sample that I can't really tell if it is going to work for me or not.

Overall, I am ok with this month's Benefit Prive box. I know what I am getting and I have used all of these products and know I will use them up. Even though they are tiny deluxe sample sizes(except the total moisture facial cream), I am happy. I would rather have products I know I will make good use of instead of tossing them or end up giving them away.

Are you happy with what you receive in your January TopBox? What goodies did you get?


  1. Wish benefit would put more variety in their deluxe samples! It's always badgal, high beam, hoola etc.
    Cute box though!!


  2. I actually wish that they would provide hoola, I'm glad that Benefit is actually one of the products that Topbox frequently sends- there aren't enough known products. I guess that's the point though, to help these newer/lesser known products get their name out.


  3. I got the Benefit box too. I already like the mascara and I'm excited to try Benetint (I think it's weird that I haven't). I knew it would have more POREfessional, which I'm not a fan of, the concealer was too dark for me, and the face cream is just okay. I was more disappointed by my beauty surprise though, which I posted about!


  4. I don't have stuff like these in the mail but I'd like to comment how I love the box. It's so striking and it immediately captures your attention with the color and the print. And I love the Bene Tint!
