I love month – ends.. because that’s when the bulk of my Beauty Box/Bag subscriptions come in… Last month was no different and my console table out front is overwhelmed by the number of packages waiting to be opened and enjoyed !!!
Today I thought I’d share with you about my WonderBox experience. For those of you who have been reading my blog you know only too well that I’ve been subscribing to WonderBox forever, by forever I mean all but their initial debut box. Over the months, WonderBox has provided many ‘Wonder’s’ in a Box and I’ve truly enjoyed every one of their boxes.
Now this month I opened my WonderBox a little later than usual…Having said that I saw that there were some hit’s and some misses. Having also spoken to some other WonderBox subscribers I sensed that not everyone was too excited with their June WonderBox…how about me? Well…read on to find out.
Now as always..lets make a list of all the items I’ve received as well as their retail values
- Beautymate Purifying and Hydrating Nano Toner (Full Size) – RM 49.90
- Murad Pomergranate Exfoliating Mask, 1pcs – RM 66/6pcs (RM 11)
- Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel, 8ml – RM 38/60ml (RM5)
- Neutrogena Hydro Boost Intensive Hydrating Mask (full size) – RM13.90/per pc or RM 55.90/5pcs
- AUPRES Aqua Active Sleeping Mask, 5g – RM95 for 80g (RM 5)
- AUPRES Ultimate White Extra Intensive Spot Serum, 5ml – RM150 for 30ml (RM 25)
I also received 2 vouchers
- Murad – RM 30 off Murad Online Store
- Kado New Hair Studio – 50% off All Hair Chemical Services
Ok… so those were the items in my WonderBox.. to be honest this box did not blow me away as WonderBox’es usually do. I liked that they included Neutrogena and Murad Mask’s… I love these masks so can’t say no to them but really this was pretty much a repetition of previous boxes. Good to see the Beautymate Toner in full size but the other items did not ‘wow’ me this time around.
My other peeve is really the value of the box too, subscribers who received the purple ribbon edition got in my opinion a better deal. They received the same items from No.1 – 3 but instead of the Neutrogena Mask and Aupres Trial Set, they received a full size Neutrogena Hydro Boost Night Concentrate Sleeping Pack, 50gm(full size) – RM 58.60 and L’Oreals Liss Ultime Shampoo and Masque valued at RM 50 for both. That means while the Black Ribbon WonderBox is circa RM 109.8 which is about 2.5 X times the value of a WonderBox subscription at RM 45 the Purple Ribbon edition values circa RM 174.50 which is nearly 4X the value of the WonderBox subscription.
So whilst I’m not taking this too much to heart..I do hope WonderBox looks at the value of the boxes in the future so as to not give loyal customers a chance to dwell over Faux Pas like these. I got mine redeemed thru WonderPoints so I cant really complain but some of the other subscribers who paid full price would have liked to see something better.
On that note, I bid you adieu…. My next Giveaway will be announced soon..so stay tuned
