Ola everyone…. I hope you’ve had a restful weekend and are all geared for the week ahead!!! I had a lovely weekend, made all the more better because I received my second Modbox on Friday and have been happily using some of the goodies featured in their January 2013 box. I’m sure you’re all excited to know just what I’m talking about, so let’s get straight to the good stuff.
As before my Modbox was sent by GDex courier, box arrived promptly and in superb condition.
My kids always hang about when I unbox these beauty boxes, my girl with hopes to score some age appropriate goodies and my boys hang around for the bubble wrap 🙂
I really like the box the products come in, they’re definitely the sturdiest of the beauty boxes I’ve received and can be reused to store knick knacks and keepsakes.
Woots, I see a couple of full size items!!! Now as always I like to list down what I received and their retail values:
Firstly a Cellnique product voucher worth RM 20
- Kiss Me – Heroine Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner (full size) – RM 49.90/2.5g
- Sante Naturkosmetik – Grenadine Spirit Body Lotion (full size) – RM 39.90/150ml
- My Beauty Diary – Bulgarian White Rose mask 1pc – RM 39.90 for box of 10pcs 3ml
- Cellnique – Skin Action Sebum Gel- RM159/30ml
- Claire Organics Handmade Organic Soap, Aloe Vera Shea Butter (sample size)- RM 16 to RM 23/100 gm
Firstly let me say how much I loved receiving liquid eyeliner. This is the first time I’ve received one in a Beauty Box and being a big,big fan of eyeliners… I was super excited to try this out. But first a little about the product itself.
Kiss Me is Japanese Brand specialising in Eyeliners & Mascara. This product is supposed to be No 1 in Japan. Since all the product information was in Japanese I had to google to find out a little more. According to a Japanese Beauty Brands site, the Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner is highly water proof and smudge proof. It also contains chamomile & camellia extracts that provide gentle care for the fragile eye area.
Next on is the Grenadine Body Lotion by Sante Naturkosmetik. Sante is a German based company that produce sustainable and natural products, using active ingredients which are based on plants and oils of certified organic quality. Their products are deemed to be free of synthetic fragrances, preservatives, colours and genetically modified organisms. (GMO’s -now that’s a new one, will have to google this next and find out what this actually means in layman terms) Anyway getting back on track, this organic lotion which is also made in Germany has a mild and subtle fragrance and upon application is well absorbed by the skin. Sante products are available at selected organic stores Nationwide, for their full list, head on to www.sante.my
I have been receiving a lot of masks lately and I can’t complain. Lying down with a cool mask on your face can be absolutely soothing and in this case this variant of Bulgarian White Rose is supposed to whiten and hydrate the skin too.
Claire Organics is a homegrown enterprise specializing in handmade organic soaps. These soaps are made with fresh and natural high quality ingredients, are manually cut and cured for 45 days. As you might already know by now, I’m a big fan of organic products, so this too gets my seal of approval. For more information on their products, check out their blog link at claireorganics.blogspot.com
Finally to the last item received, a 3ml sample of Cellnique’s Skin Action Sebum Gel. According to the description this phyto bio-engineered formulation gel will help control skin congestion and reduce blackheads leaving you with a clearer and smoother complexion. I have yet to try this….the sample is a little small so wont be able to say for sure if this really works. Will give it a try anyway, and let you know what I think of it later.
So now that we’ve gone thru all the items that were in the box, let’s do the Math. After adding up the full size items and estimating the sample’s based on retail value/size…. I’ve valued this at RM109.60. Now I only purchased this box including postage for RM28, so that’s close to 4 times a return on investment. Good you say….I say it’s Super !!!
I’m already on board with Modbox for next month and will keep you all updated when they come out with their February Box. For now, I’ve put on my Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner and hoping to hit town looking Super Mod !!! Ciao
