MIVVA Box, December 2012 – Viva La MIVVA

It was a rainy afternoon when my debut MIVVA box finally arrived and boy was it heavy…. that’s always a good sign so it was with a happy grin that I set out to unbox it.

MIVVA is one of the newer local beauty box subscription services available to Malaysians hooked up on the beauty box craze. I am a self confessed beauty box addict and can’t seem to stop myself especially with all this subscription services available to us.

For those of you keen on trying out their service, you can register by going to  http://www.mivva.com/join/c20db4e7c96b  and type in the exclusive invitation code : discoverMIVVA ( case sensitive).

MIVVA has a range of subscription packages:-

1 month       – RM 38

3 months    – RM 114 + 500 points

6 months    – RM 228 + 1000 points (1 free box)

Now that we’ve covered what MIVVA has to offer, let’s check out what they put together for subscribers of their debut box.

MIVVA sent out their first batch of boxes in time for Christmas but I only received mine much later as mine was part of the second batch. They use Pos Laju courier services so the box reached on time.

The box itself is a pretty pink with their MIVVA logo printed in the middle.

Now, that was quite a nice selection of products and I was quite happy with what I had received. I liked the fact that they put in the fake eyelashes…. it gives a chance for those normally too shy to glam it up a bit. I also liked the fact that everything in the box is something that I would use and not one of those box fillers that will be put away. The makeup pouch is simply great, hot pink and so useful and the candy was a ‘sweet’ touch.

Now for the part I like the most…..let’s see whether the value matches up. Sample size wise, I always like to see at least one full size product, but hey the lashes were full size, so no complaints there. I did my own calculation, retail price vs ml/gm value and the items in the box not including the makeup pouch came up to roughly RM 120 which is three times what I paid for this box.

Would I re-subscribe and the answer is Yes!!! I am curious to see how the MIVVA box shapes up for the next couple of months and hope that they continue with providing good value to their subscribers. I’m all for supporting home grown enterprises and wish the folks there Viva La MIVVA !!!
