Review: Glamabox January 2014 Beauty Subscription Box

Review: Glamabox - HK based Beauty subscription box

Hi Ladies! I would like to share with you the latest beauty box subscription that I received from the kind people at Glamabox! Glamabox was started in 2011 by HK international model Lisa S, and for a monthly fee of $19, you’ll receive a tightly curated box of five beauty products selected by Lisa S. herself. The subscription box is available to subscribers in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Singapore.

Unveiling the Glamabox!!

It contains a leaflet that describes all the products you’ve gotten, so that you know what everything is for. And guess what? All the products that Glamabox sends out have been tried and tested by Lisa S!

Dermal Red Ginseng Collagen Essence Mask 1 pc

Containing aloe vera extract and red ginseng extract which has moisturising and soothing effect to prevent skin ageing, reduce fine lines and protect skin.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser 29ml

Formulated by dermatologists. It is not only a cleanser, but also can be used as a makeup remover! It gently cleanses and is great for sensitive skin.

Review: I’ve tried this before and found it to be a mild gel cleanser. After washing, my face feels smooth and soft, without the tight feeling.

Sanrio Hello Kitty Graffiti Nail Polish (Green)

Review: Glamabox - Beauty subscription box

One of the perks of subscribing to the HK-based beauty box is that you’ll get to sample products that are not available in Singapore. That certainly adds to the surprise element. The Hello Kitty Graffiti Makeup Collection is now launched in Hong Kong Sasa, Citistore, Mannings and Colourmix stores, which includes eyeshadow palettes, mascara, eyeliner, concealer, lipsticks, and nail polishes in juicy colours.

Morigarden Magnolia Moisturising Sun Protect Cream SPF15 PA++ 5ml

Review: Glamabox - Beauty subscription box

I was pretty interested in this little pot of Sun Protect Cream! Never heard of the brand before but it was specially selected from Japan. Magnolia moisturises and prevents skin-ageing while providing sun protection. It also contains aloe vera extract and organic hazelnut oil.

Review: Since it’s only SPF15, it can last about 2-3 hours in the sun, I apply it when I have to pop out for awhile to get lunch! It’s pretty lightweight and non-greasy. Plus I really like the light floral smell.

SFERANGS Repairing Eye Balm 5ml

Review: Glamabox - Beauty subscription box

SFERANGS is a Korean cosmetics and beauty brand, since 1979. Its sensitive formula is gentle yet improves elasticity and hydration of skin around the eyes. Say goodbye to wrinkles, dark circles and dryness!

Review: I used the SFERANGS Repairing Eye Balm on my lower eye bags twice a day, and liked the consistency of the cream. It is lightweight – which is very important for eye creams – and also has a pleasant fragrance. Just a pea-size is enough; do not spam eye creams as that might clog the pores around the eye and give you milia seeds. I do find that my eye area is more moisturised, but not so apparent on the fine lines department yet.

I would think SFERANGS is a pretty high-end brand as the Repairing Eye Balm in 30ml retails at SGD95! But the cool thing about beauty subscription boxes is that you get to sample products before committing to buying the full-sized one.

My favourite products from the Glamabox are the SFERANGS Repairing Eye Balm and Morigarden Magnolia Moisturizing Sun Protect Cream! I think I know the reason why… both smell so good! Hehheh. <3

[Lifestyle] BlackBox Singapore July Edition

BlackBox Singapore July Edition

I really enjoy opening surprise boxes, especially one that is free of charge and delivered to my doorstep! BlackBox’s July Edition arrived last week and I would like to share with you guys what I received. :)

BlackBox Singapore July Edition

A glance over all the items that came in the mysterious BlackBox. Once again, there was a good mix of beauty, food and lifestyle products. The beauty products are mostly in sample sizes.

Food:

Take 5ive Energy Drink that supposedly gives you up to 5.5 hours of energy instantly after drinking. I got the one that boosts Brain Power, but there’s another ‘flavour’ that boosts Immunity. Hammy has got his eyes set on this!

Super Charcoal Roasted White Coffee that came in 3 flavours – Classic, Roasted Hazelnut and Brown Sugar. Not bad!

Beauty:

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser for all skin types. It has a non-soap formulation that does not strip your skin off its natural moisture. Fragrance-free and irritants-free. It has a very smooth and almost slippery texture, and after washing, my skin feels moisturised and soft. However it took a shorter time for my face to oil up again.

BlackBox Singapore July Edition

Lierac Mesolift Vitamin-Enriched Fondant Cream is something that I’ve never seen before, even the name is puzzling. However, doing some research pointed out that this cream is a pick-me-up for tired skin as it is packed with vitamins and citrus-AHAs (builds collagen). It has a creamy texture that can be used to energize, replump and illuminate the skin. It is probably good to use as a night cream, as it leaves a sheen on the skin, but I found the fragrance too strong for my liking.

LOreal Elseve’s Extraordinary Oil for nourishing hair. It is “lightweight, non-greasy” and “created from the most lavish oils of 6 flower extracts – Flax, Tiare, Rose, Lotus, Chamomile and Matricaria.” It claims to restore the hair’s shine and flowy lightness.

PurerSkin’s Miracle Serum made from Bird’s Nest (the really tiny sample bottle). I really like the texture and smell of this serum, and it claims to make your skin” feel visibly younger and firmer in 7 days!” It helps to reduce dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.

Lifestyle Vouchers:

BlackBox Singapore July Edition

There were discount vouchers for slimming, health drinks, beauty products and even a free bust maximizer treatment. Eh.. A bit tempted. BUT. Haha.

Yup, that’s all for July’s Edition of my BlackBox~ Haha crossing my fingers that I’ll get the next edition!
