CosmoBox by Box Culture December 2012

Ahhhh... Life is so busy these days, especially when it's end of the year. So many accounting work and stock to check. In between my busy life, it's nice to receive some beauty products at my door step.

In the beginning, I thought it was my WonderBox that arrived because so many people already blogging about it but I still haven't receive it :(

It turned out to be the CosmoBox by Box Culture the December 2012 version.

Content of the CosmoBox this month in a glance

I have a mixed feelings with this month's CosmoBox. Although I really like some of the products, at the same time, I feel that this month's product value is below the price of the box.

The product that I love the most in this box is the Benefit they're Real! mascara (8.5g/ RM85). A mascara that lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts & separates. This jet black, long-wearing formula won't smudge or dry out. A specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

I've been wanting to try this mascara for a long time. But everytime I go to the Benefit counter, I already have mascara on. I didn't want to buy it before trying because it is expensive, and I always think that drugstore mascara is financially a better choice.

I was also delighted to see Yadah products in the box. In July, Yadah was launched in Malaysia and I couldn't attend the event. I asked the PR where I can find Yadah products because I wanted to try it but she never reply my email. And finally....

Yadah Vitamin Toner (80ml/ RM49.00). Enriched with organic Opuntia Ficus (cactus) to soothe and hydrate the skin. Formulated with orange and lemon extracts filled with vitamins to help refresh, tone and brighten skin.

Yadah Vitamin Emulsion (80ml/ RM49.00). This light matte-fluid when paired with the Yadah Vitamin Toner leaves skin naturally moist, brightened and velvety soft.

Yadah Sun Cream SPF40 PA++ (50ml/ RM35.00). An extremely gentle and light weight waterproof oil-free cream that offers effective protection against harmful UV rays. Natural and organic based extracts make it less irritating to the skin.

Yadah Angel BB Cream SPF20 PA++ (40ml/ RM49.00). A multi-functional makeup base and primer with botanical vitamins and skincare benefits including anti-wrinkle, anti-oxidant, brightening, UV sun protection, moisture and sebum control.

And some sample packs of hair products from Sebastian. These are not really my favorite.

Sebastian Light Shampoo (250ml/ RM64.00). Purifying Sebastian's mind to the notion of clean with the weightless shine shampoo and conditioner.

Sebastian Light Conditioner (250ml/ RM69.00). Pro-shine conditioners cleanse and purify the hair's condition for weightless, flawless shine, color safe.

Sebastian Hydre Treatment (150ml/ RM89.00). Intense nourishment formula rehydrates dry, frizzy and chemically treated hair for invigorated silky body and bounce. Color safe.

This is something new to me... *Bisou* Bon Bon product. This is a homemade beauty remedy brand. I found out after I receive their First Aid Salve from this box. Initially I wasn't so keen on trying it. But after I smell the amazing therapeutic smell, and checked out the website, I began to get really interested.

*Bisou* Bon Bon First Aid Salve (25g/ RM16.00). An oinment for elbow graze, insect bites, finger burns, eczema patch and irritating rashes. Infused with antiseptic tea-tree oil, lavender, shea butter, rose hip oil, vitamin E, manuka honey and chamomile.

Some vouchers and product booklet...

I foresee myself using the Benefit makeup service voucher soon.

And some really random stuff in the box are Christmas hair pin and a roll of red ribbon. These stuff suppose to be in the beauty box???

The hairpin kinda reminds me of the hairpin from Modbox this month beauty box!!!!

I don't know if this month's CosmoBox is really worth it or not. In terms of satisfaction, it's just at borderline. What do you think of this month's CosmoBox? Do all the products reflect it's RM39 fees?

@Angeline Ng: Exactly what I'm wondering too...

I like the Mascara and the Yadah products but for RM 39 there's still something lacking that shouts out - I'm the best!!!!

Rebecca Saw said...

So many beauty box services! I'm getting confused.
Anyhow, how would you rate its worthiness?
The total products price should be say 500% more than the price u paid fr the box?

Jerine said...

Good question Becky. I'm preparing a post to compare all the beauty boxes in Malaysia. I'm waiting for another beauty box to arrive before I can do it.
