Got this for Christmas. It’s a very nice small trio set with a cute small makeup pouch. It’s smaller than my iPhone plus. So it has a Rosehip Oil Antioxidant, Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream and Rosehip Oil Lip Balm.
The lipbalm has peppermint in it, so its quite nice. It is a clear oily rather liquid-like balm. It is 7ml, so really good decent amount. It makes your lips rather shiny. So it can be used a clear gloss I guess. It’s not bad, helps prevent chapped lips during cold weather, but it doesn’t exactly heal them if you have cracked lips.
The oil is ulti purpose. I guess the main purpose is to actually use them as a moisturiser. Like a touch up on the go, if your face start to get dry. I don’t really like the smell. It takes time to get used to it. It is only 2.5ml, but a little goes a long way. It has like a little pump, so that’s nice too. In the end, this can only be used for cold weather. Or basically for people with dry skin. I still keep it in my bag, cause it’s just cute to have around.
The hand cream is 20ml. It has the scent of Cethaphil with a hint of orange. A bit weird, cause I don’t like the sweet orange smell. But the “medicated” scent helps making this better. It’s a thick cream as in it seems light until you try to spread it out to your hands. It just seems to sink into the skin so quick that you have to apply more. But it’s good. It means that the product get absorb into the skin and not just grace the surface. Takes a minute to dry, then it leaves your hand feeling really soft. It’s quite good for dry hands. Just the waiting time. So, use this only when you know your hands will be free for at least a minute.
Overall, I think the set is catered to people who lives in colder country. But still a good mini set to have handy in your bag. It’s not that cheap though. I think it’s about $40.
◊ Made my whole hand glittery. ◊ Good for party night. ◊ Smells good. Like perfume but more natural. More spa like. More oil base type. Hard to explain but it smell rich.
The first time I received it I don’t think it has a scent. So it’s totally different from the first impression. On the hair it’s not so nice for me cause I feel greasy already. On the skin, at first it feels quite greasy but it goes away. However the glitters will stay and you just look awesome. I guess it’s moisturizing but who cares about moisture if you can look sparkly all over.
I heard of Black Box a long time ago, and I signed up for it. But I don’t really know how it worked. Cause some people actually managed to get this free box, and I wanted one too. Last month they emailed us saying how their website has change and you can ballot for a free box. You can secure a free box just by paying for $6 shipping. They only had 500 boxes for that.
I wasn’t very interested in the October box when I saw the participating brands. So I wouldn’t pay $6 for it. But I did try to ballot for it. I did not know I was successful as all I did was click the link and put my email address and they told me I am eligible for balloting. Then I had to log in but I did not know my password and I’m just lazy to check my email.
Anyway there was another email saying everything was sold out and 1500 boxes were successfully given out to the winners. A few days later I got an email saying my box will be sent to me between a certain time. It was like winning a lottery. How awesome!
So this is the box. Sorry for the longwinded story, but that’s practically how Black Box work. If you’re in Singapore, just sign up, try your luck. The next one is for December box, but the balloting has not start? I am not sure. I only got the email for securing the box.
So far, all I did was do a short survey online after I got the box to win full-sized products. That’s it. They never ask you to do anything, not even ask you to refer to friends. But good things must be shared right? And it’s unisex, so it’s really for everyone. Then again it’s free. You can always pass it to anyone of you don’t like it.
So I received a card with the description of the product like where to buy, how to use and also some discount coupons. Lovemore Snailmucin Repairing Eye Patch.
VDL CC Cream has SPF 25. Have not try this yet, but it’s great to have for upcoming mini vacations.
Bifesta Cleansing Lotion (sebum) is a really cool product. It’s a makeup remover and cleanser at the same time. You don’t need to wash your face after using this. Just rinse it if you want. A product after my own heart. The samples come with cotton pads, but I think the full size is just the lotion.
Darlie Enamel Protect Toothpaste who doesn’t love free toothpaste? It’s a travel size which probably cost $2 if you buy from Watsons.
Zappy Sampler Pack now this is cool.
Look at that, it’s all in wipes form and it has different type of purpose. I like the sunscreen one. How cool to use sunscreen with a wipe. It’s just so easy and unique. Plus it’s SPF50. I also like the insect repellent and well everything. Cause it’s all really useful to me. Per pack will cost around $2 – $5.50 and different type of wipes will contain different quantity. But I really think Zappy is really neat. Love it. Great to have for traveling or on the go.
Lastly, I got Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Oil which is a multi-purpose dry oil. I haven’t have this so it’s nice to get it. It can be use for the face, body or hair. This is shimmery which I think will be nice to use for parties while keeping your skin moisturized. I have an idea, put it all over your body and you can be the Cullen for Halloween, even though it’s over but I only think of it. Anyway, I like to put this at the ends of my hair to give them an extra sparkle. It doesn’t has a scent or anything though.
