Happy Chinese New Year !!! I hope ushering in the year of the snake will bring loads of joy and happiness to one and all of you….. On my side the year of the Dragon ended quite beautifully, I have happily settled into a new home sans Internet ( hence the very late update ) have got into a new routine with kids and chores and have made many new friends. And not to forget received CNY Themed packages, the first of which being from the lovely ladies at MIVVA.
Now for those of you who are not very familiar with MIVVA, this is their second box. MIVVA launched their debut box end December 2012 to coincide with Christmas and that was a super success. You can read up more on their debut box here. Anyways, when I received their second box I could not wait to find out what they had sent me all the more since it was quite heavy.
MIVVA uses PosLaju to courier their packages, I have no complaints, service was prompt and package arrived in excellent condition.
I love the Box itself, pale pink cover with a darker pink underbox and the MIVVA heart logo.
And now for what’s below….
‘Love is in the air’ …..it is indeed!!! MIVVA’s greeting card in the shape of an airmail envelope was positively lovely. I especially loved this quote ” A KISS MAKES THE HEART YOUNG AGAIN AND WIPES BACK THE TEARS. BEAUTY PRODUCTS MAKE THE FACE YOUNG AGAIN AND WIPE OF THE YEARS!” Now that is so true you …dont you agree ladies?
First up are the brochures from their participating sponsors SkinLab and Murad and also a RM30 Murad voucher redeemable on their online shop. MIVVA also enclosed a product description leaflet. This time around they included 7 Beauty Products and 3 extras.

I’m glad the MIVVA team included Paul Penders Products in their lineup.

Nature’s Lab is another homegrown brand specialising in natural products. I tried thier Body Whip and it was amazing, was absorbed by my skin with absolutely no sticky residue. This works simply perfect in our hot and humid weather and this is definitely on my ‘Buy’ list.
Murad products have been around for a long time, well known for their effective and corrective skincare their products are much sought after. This is my second Vitalic Pomegranate Mask this month and am saving it for a big event coming up this month. 🙂 it is after all reputed to be a Weekly Miracle Worker.
What can I say other than this was a spectacular Valentine/CNY beauty box. MIVVA included 2 full sized items totaling RM128.90 and also a whole lot of other samples and goodies and all this for only RM 38 a month. I got a 3X return on my investment and that makes me a very happy customer. Moreover they have just launched their MIVVA Points Rewards Program where you can submit reviews and refer friends and accumulate points to redeem against full sized products.
