This is such a neat idea, but such a pain to put on. It’s messy and it doesn’t fit my face right. But once you get over the mess, then it’s actually quite nice. The mask is translucently thin. It’s cooling but I don’t see much a different using this. It’s just relaxing I guess. And it stuck on your face, so no worry of it falling off. But the mess, I rather use a one sided gel kind of patch.
Let your pore breathe, in the decent scent of chamomile and mint and feels instantly freshen up. Deep moisture, moderate control over oily skin and enlarged pored. Get rid of annoying oily skin and acne breakouts. Now you too can have soft supple skin with balanced sebum. Feel the difference instantly!
This is very cooling but it smells kind of weird. Doesn’t makes a different to my skin. But after, it leaves my skin really sticky. I don’t like it.

This is the only one that smells really good. Really cooling and very refreshing. But my brows kept itching after 5 minutes if wear.
Overall I am not such a fan of these masks. They are just too big for me, too messy and too thin. They are so easy to get torn. Plus I really do not like masks that have extra plastic to keep its shape, even though the plastic is there for a reason.
I guess one good thing is that the masks doesn’t dry out after the 20mins you are suppose to put on. But to me, that is annoying. Cause once I remove the mask, it will still be kind of messy. They are just too generous with the essence, which is suppose to be good but I don’t like. Also it’s so fragile that once I stick it on my face, it is so hard to readjust. If I move it a bit, it will tear. And so cause of the packaging, these are a no for me.
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.
So ya that’s it for my free Black Box.
