Review: Glamabox May 2014 Beauty Subscription Box

Glamabox review

 Yay, the kind people at Glamabox sent me the May edition! This is my second Glamabox and you can read about the first one here. :) The May box is in a pretty teal hue and it’s one of my favourite colours! <3 <3 When I opened it, I was surprised that there were so many samples in it, and the box smelled heavenly due to one of the products inside (you’ll know which later ;P).

It’s really cool that the May Glamabox contained brands from Paris, Thailand and Ireland!! That’s one of the perks when you subscribe to a beauty box; you’ll get to try exciting products from all over the world.

Orlane Paris cream review

ORLANE Super Moisturising Serum 3.5 ml

Activates the key moisture receptor, CD44, which is essential for stimulating hyaluronic acid and for capturing and redistributing water.

ORLANE Whitening Cream 1.5 ml

Uses Soy Plant Complex to fight brown spots by facilitating melanin elimination. Its anti-ageing effect protects elastin from deterioration and stimulates cellular renewal.

ORLANE B21 Extraordinaire 1 ml

Secret Formula – Youth Reset Complex arisen skin cell regeneration function. The other essential ingredients – the 21 amino acids from pale iris stem cells can formulate collagen. These two powerful ingredients together contribute to rebuild a younger and healthier skin.

Orlane Paris cream review

Thoughts: This range of products sounds powerful! I love it when beauty products have science to back them up – especially with years of research – but that also means that they aren’t going to be cheap. Beauty boxes give you the chance to try before investing that’s worth hundreds of dollars. There’s a very slight fragrance, and after application, the cream is quickly absorbed to reveal smooth skin.

D'ORIENT Speed Osmotic Moisturising Cream review

D’ORIENT Speed Osmotic Moisturising Cream 5 ml

Combines the best rosa centufolia flower oil, natural moisturising factor, Phycol CC and marine collagen to form a soft protection sheer that retain supple water for cell perfusion. Can prevent appearance of fine lines due to long exposure under air conditioning or dehydrated conditions. Leaves skin supple with moist all day long. Locks water, repel fine lines, and enhances elasticity.

Thoughts: Another product from Paris that sounds promising! The Speed Osmotic cream has a floral scent. Its consistency becomes watery runny when applied on the skin. The result is soft and soft skin with no oiliness.

Kiss skincare thailand review

Developed by Thailand’s famous dermatologist, the cream mask is formulated with collagen extract, alpha arbutus, vitamin C and natural extracts. It diminishes the appearance of pores, supports natural skin nourishment, exfoliates and address impurities.

The mineral aqua mud foam detoxifies and moisturises your skin at the same time. It washes away impurities and excess oils, and leaves skin with a refreshing, nourishing and moisturised feeling.

ENITA Ultrarich Body Butter Review

With 100% natural ingredients including Shea Butter, sweet almond oil, olive oil and grape seed oil, ENITA Ultrarich Body Conditioning Series penetrates deep for effective moisturising and anti-ageing treatment that relieves extra-dry, aggravated skin.

ENITA Ultrarich Body 2 in 1 Conditioning Shower Lotion 140 ml

ENITA Ultrarich Body Butter 10 ml

A thick and creamy aromatherapy blend of Shea butter and Argan oil, richly scented with pure, healing essential oils.

ENITA Bergamot Tea & Aloe Sugar Butter Scrub 5 ml

Blended with Apricot Seed Powder, natural sugar crystals, Argan oil, Olive oil and Shea butter helps boost blood circulation. It gently scrubs away dead skin cells to make you look younger and keeps your skin refined and radiant. Apply on damp skin, and massage gently for 30 seconds, rinse with warm water. Use 1-2 times a week.

Thoughts: Aha! This is the cream that made the box smell so nice! I love the scent so much and even more that it has moisturising and anti-ageing properties :) The Body Balm has a thick consistency, the only thing I can think of to describe it – it feels like Tiger Balm! Lol. It is really targeted at extra-dry skin due to its balm-y texture. 

sofei horse mane extract oil review

Sofei Horse Mane Extract Oil Nourishing Hair Treatment 35 ml


This interesting product features horse mane oil extracted from Royal Champion horses in Hokkaido, Japan! Processes are carried out under close guidance of Japanese technical profession using lactoferrin and upgraded formula. It can penetrate hair roots to eliminate grease and residual chemicals. Also it can repair capelin hair due to chronic exposure or dyeing chemicals, strengthen hair elasticity and build a healthy scalp, so that chances of hair breaking is lessen. Guaranteed a totally refreshing feel after use!

Thoughts: First impression was cool, there’s such a product!! I haven’t heard of using horse’s mane extract to maintain healthy hair, but here it is! Haha with hair products, I would always check out how it smells. This Sofei hair product has a menthol/minty smell, which can help to get rid of  the’food centre hair smell’. However I’m quite puzzled by its runny and sticky texture – different like other hair oils – and it does feel a bit sticky just after application. But after awhile, I like the refreshing menthol scent, which would be great for guys as well!


So that’s all for the May Glamabox! I’ve already received my June box and I love it so much! Will share soon :)
