If you’ve been wondering why it’s been a little quiet lately..well that’s because I just got back from a short trip from Down Under… it was 8 great days of catching up with family, trips to Perth’s sights and attractions… many run-in with them Kangaroo’s and quite a shopping haul.
Needless to say that I was quite exhausted when I got back and needed some serious TLC. On that note, nothing fills up and senses and makes me squeal with joy than loads of packages waiting on my console (my mom is such an angel..she had the house ready and waiting for our arrival)
I’ve been waiting for a while for my Modbox and for good reason…. A few weeks ago when they were about to launch, I was asked to be a part of their Modbox Bloggers Community (Thanks Kay!!! Muahss) and having loved every one of my previous Modboxes I could not wait to witness their re-launch.
For those of you new to Modbox…. just a little intro.. Modbox is definitely Malaysia’s most affordable beauty box service. Currently retailing at RM 9 per box per month (delivery is an additional RM 6 for Peninsular Malaysia). As part of their re-launch they have revamped their original violet/lilac hued box for a functional little box to house the samples that their subscribers can choose from.
I’m loving their new concept. Basically subscribers are taken on a virtual shopping tour where they will be able to choose from samples that best suit them or they’re keen to try from a variety of products offered for that month.
Did I order their box..you bet I did..how could I not..but since i received the Blogger’s Kit too..let me show you all that Modbox has to offer 🙂
Cant wait to see what’s below..that’s exactly how I felt especially for such a little box it was packed to the brim.
Now at one glance at the labels..you should get an idea of how many products were in the box. Seriously I was so excited to see all Modbox had to offer this month.
If you’re anything like me..you’re probably already squealing to see this lovely product. I can’t have enough of Crabtree & Evelyn and if you’re looking premium this is definitely the item to care for your hands. My hands have greatly benefited from their Hand Therapy range so this is definitely a winner for me. And oh did I mention..this retails for RM 35 and what was the cost of the Modbox again..yes..thats right RM 9!!!
But that was not all, the Modbox crew was so sweet they even included some other Crabtree & Evelyn samples …
Now some of you might have heard of Unico..for me this was a first..hence I had to do some research… Unico Cosmeceuticals is a one-stop specialist that develops various cosmeceuticals and professional treatment products. Combining the best natural ingredients and biotechnology in advanced formulations. Their purpose is to develop products that provide perfect skin solutions. For more on Unico..see here
I was never a big user of Sun Protection products until recently simply because I’ve disliked the white sticky after feeling of most of them. I reckon a lost of Sun Products are not meant for the darker skinned like me as I always end up looking like i’ve played with my mother’s talcum powder. This product from Unico though is really great.. it has a creamy light yellow texture that immediately blends into my skin..leaving it flawless..mildly scented so it works for me.. This is going on to my wish-list 🙂
For those of you who’ve been reading my posts for a while now..you’ll definitely know I have been using the Ronasutra line for a while now… My colour is Chestnut though I also can wear Mocha and the Modbox crew were really awesome as they managed to get my tone even though at the point of ordering it was out of stock… For me this makes a big impact.. to know that they care enough to get me something that works for my darker tone…. rather than send out something that only works for the general population which a lot of other beauty boxes do. I use this product and can vouch and tell you it’s lovely retails for RM 48 for an 8gm full-sized tub. To get some idea of which shade will work for you..try to match it to the chart below.
Once again..Modbox has hit the nail on it’s head by featuring the best brands.. Murad is definitely up there on my list of favorite skincare brands. This time they included their Eye Lift Illuminator and Lord sure knows I need this one badly. Lousy sleeping times have contributed to some serious dark circles around my eyes so it was great that I got this little sachet to try .. I like its light texture, looks a little shimmery ..though not a big fan of the smell… it did reduce some minor swelling i had on my eyes fairly well… The only boo-boo is that I’m not very good with sachets…when I opened this up, a lot of it came running out so whilst my the skin around my eyes got some much-needed love & care.. a lot of it was wasted. But not to worry as the full-sized item comes in a pen so it makes for easy application and no wastage…retails at RM 168 for 1.8ml
So what did i think.. I thought this was really good !!! And i’m giving it an A… A regular box will come with 3 samples and that alone would come to a value of around RM 70 which is more than 4 times the value of the box ( I have taken the Modbox to cost RM 15 which is RM 9 for the box + RM 6 for postage ). I like th idea of choosing what samples work for me and am really looking forward to seeing what will be on offer in the coming months…
Dont forget for those of you who love the products you’ve tried.. Modbox has their Modshop up and running where you can purchase full sized items of the one’s you love. Check them out here. They even have free delivery for orders above RM 100 so this is great if you’re keen to do quite a bit of shopping. I’m going to have a look-see and see what will work for me with ..so happy retail therapy to me.. Until later..take care and Happy Monday !!!
