okok i know Box 3 is already out! but still, i wanna talk about Box 2! it’s my first beauty box from TheLilacBox, so must document it la
if you’re in the beauty blogging scene, you should have known that the some of the Box 2 arrived in disastrous condition, and mine was one of them! leaky products dampened the whole box, making it really gross and yucky. i emailed the management that night itself and he said he would compensate us! so yay! i got a new Box 2 the following week.
this time it was a perfect clean & fresh date!
come, join me with the unboxing!
“Picking the right cosmetics and beauty product is very much like going on a blind date. It’s a constant surprise and you’ll never know what you’ll get. Some may interest you; many won’t. But once in a while, you’ll stumble across something that could possibly be the one.
This is what The Lilac Box is all about. We regularly send you a couple of beauty and cosmetic products in a box. You won’t know what’s inside; and opening the box and discovering what’s inside is part of the fun.”
“Oh, did we mention we put only premium products inside? You’re young, you’re beautiful, and we know you only date ‘premium’. Then, you will get to know these products. You will flirt with them, learn more about them, spend plenty of time together, and who knows – you might find one you’ll fall in love with for the rest of your life!”
unlike other beauty boxes in Malaysia, The Lilac Box is the only one without subscription. you can only purchase it when it’s available, it’s really hard to predict when! so you just have to stay close to their facebook page!
a sweet welcome note from The Lilac Box!
the product description can be found on this website after you have logged in to your account! it’s one of their go-green initiative to cut down usage of paper!
there’s 8 products from 4 premium brands altogether!
- Nuxe Rêve de Miel Cleansing Gel (15ml)
- Nuxe Huile Prodigeuse (10ml)
- Redken Intra Force Shampoo & Conditioner (145ml each)
- Lunasol Skin Modeling Powder Foundation (0.6g) & Smoothing Makeup Base
- Calvin Klein Beauty & Sheer Beauty (1.2ml each)
Nuxe Rêve de Miel Cleansing Gel
they are more careful with the packaging this time. this tube of Nuxe cleansing gel comes in a ziplock bag!
This soap-free gel enriched with Honey and Sunflowers, gently removes make-up while cleansing and soothing the face in a single step. A treat for the senses that leaves the skin feeling impeccably clean. Suitable for all skin types especially sensitive skin.
it works more like a cleansing milk which does great in removing make up! cleansing part, not so.
that’s why i’ll double cleanse my face using my own facial cleanser.
Nuxe Huile Prodigeuse
A cult favourite of many women and celebrities, this multi-usage oil is nourishing yet easily absorbed for face, body and hair. Made with 30% concentration of Precious Plant Oils and Vitamin E. This formula contains ingredients of 98.1% natural origin. Silicone and paraben free.
this is the ultimate product in my toiletry bag which i brought along to Sibu recently! i use it to remove make up and sunbin massage my face before washing it off with facial cleanser. then after shampooing my hair, i apply it on my hair (2 inch away form the scalp) as a hair care products! and then rub the remaining oil residue on my elbows! and it smells good too! berry sensual and relaxing
Redken Intra Force Shampoo & Conditioner
notice how they sellotaped the cap? this was the culprit that messed up my previous date! >:(
anyway, Intra Force promises 30 days to thicker and fuller hair for natural and colour-treated thinning hair. i don’t have any problem with hair thinning *touchy wood* but my hair is chemical-treated from colouring, perming, rebonding. yesh i love to play with my hair! i’m waiting (im)patiently for the fringe to grow now, before rebonding my tresses!
okay let’s not get distracted here.
back to the products.
i likey the cooling effect they leaves on my scalp! my hair does feel moist and tamed after shampooing and conditioning! the scent reminds of some chinese herbal medicine though :/
Lunasol Skin Modeling Powder Foundation & Smoothing Makeup Base
i’ve got that powder foundation from Bag of Love in March and the colour i got didn’t suit me. so i gave this to BlabberBee with few other beauty products, and made it an AntzBeautyBox to her! as a token of appreciation of her guest-blogging at AntzWorLd <3
guys girls wait for her review la har
Calvin Klein Beauty & Sheer Beauty
at first i thought there’s only one fragrance!
manatau there’s actually TWO!
Calvin Klein BEAUTY evokes the ultimate power of femininity and sophistication, while capturing the spirit of a woman who is beautiful from the inside out, with an aura that radiates.
Calvin Klein SHEER BEAUTY is sparkling and carefree with a pure, sexy confidence. The fragrance evokes the sensuality and delicacy of bare skin with its luminous floralcy and skin-like warmth.
layman’s term is, SHEER BEAUTY is perfect for outing in the day while BEAUTY is for dinner! i brought them both to Sibu too, so that i smelt good all the time. just two small tubes, so convenient!
and i use SHEER BEAUTY more often as i loves fresh sweet fruity scent!
all in all, i am pretty satisfied with the products i got! i am using all the products other than the Lunosol’s powder foundation!
people has been asking me, which beauty box to subscribe ar cos they keep seeing me posting about beauty box and their hands get itchy! The Lilac Box is one of my recommendation, and also MIVVA! The Lilac Box because it’s you know, a boxful of premium products. and i love that there’s always a lil’ surprise in MIVVA’s!
now would you excuse me to unbox the Box 3 which has just arrived!
but before i go..
and here’s an unboxing video i managed to edit! basically just compilation of photos
