Topbox February 2013 Review - Benefit Prive Box!

February 4th and I already have my Topbox! How great is that?! This month, subscribers had the option to choose a normal box or a Prive box. A Prive box contains products from just one brand. There were only certain quantities available of each of the three Prive boxes. Topbox wanted to keep it a surprise, so nobody was informed which type of box they'd receive until it showed up on their doorstep! I was lucky enough to receive the Benefit Prive box that I was hoping for! Now onto the goodies...
I love the look of this box! All the packages are so nice.

First up is Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream for Normal to Dry Skin.
Size received: 0.3 oz
Worth: $42 for 1.7 oz @ Sephora = $7.41 sample size

Next, Benefit Benetint
Size received: 0.08 fl oz
Worth: $36 for 0.42 oz @ Sephora = $6.86 sample size

Benefit The POREfessional Balm
Size: 0.25 fl oz
Worth: $34 for 0.75 oz @ Sephora = $11.33 sample size

Benefit Dandelion Pressed Powder & Benefit Dandelion Ultra Plush Lipgloss
Size Received: 0.1 oz / 0.22 fl oz
Worth: $36 for 0.25 oz = $14.40 sample size / $18 for 0.5 oz = $7.92 sample size

Lastly, I received a paper (foil?) sample of Benefit Fine One One
Size received: ??
Worth: $36 for 0.28 oz @ Sephora = ??? sample size

Total of entire box: $47.92 pre-tax, $55.11 taxes in

Overall, I'm thrilled with this month's box. I don't own any Benefit products so this is the perfect opportunity to try some without breaking the bank. If you'd like to subscribe to Topbox for $12/month, head over to


  1. Nice you got the benefit box! That was really quick, its disappointing the fine one one sample is so tiny though.

    1. I couldn't be happier with how quickly it arrived. The Fine One One sample is a bummer, but the rest of the box makes up for it. :)

  2. Amazing box! I hope I get the same one! Fingers crossed!

  3. this box looked amazing, and i wish iwould have received it.
    instead i got the 'lippy girl', what a joke- the fullsize products are super tiny and the quality of the lipstick is just cheap, and to hear topbox was selling the extra benefit boxes? couldnt they have given them to their members that requested them? was happy with the clinique box, but the lippy girl was just a total joke.

    1. Sorry to hear that :(
      I did a bit of research before completing my prive wishlist and the other two boxes didn't appeal to me in the slightest.
