CosmoBox by Box Culture January 2013 Box

Lately I have to update my travel blog www.jerinelay.com so this blog will slow down for awhile. If you're interested in travel, you can check out my other blog too.

This month's CosmoBox is much better than the previous month. Here's what I received in the box...

1. Mariah Carey's Lollipop Splash The Remix Collection (Inseparable EDP Spray) 30ml/RM160
A cocktail of explosive fruity sensations of raspberry, mango and pear combined with exotic jasmine and orange flowers create a sparkling and irresistible fragrance.

2. Mariah Carey's Lollipop Splash The Remix Collection (Never Forget You Spray) 30ml/RM160
A playful and radiant fragrance combination of Gourmet Jelly Beans and Golden Peony creates a flirty, fun experience.

3. Mariah Carey's Lollipop Splash The Remix Collection (Vision of Love Spray) 30ml/RM160
A colourful, chic fragrance inspired by the combination of French Macaroon and purple jasmine for a tasty surprise.

My thoughts: I love having perfume in beauty box. And my favorite in this Mariah Carey's collection is Never Forget You. All of the fragrance smell really special. It's neither fruity nor floral, but definitely smell sweet.

4. OPI (Mariah Carey by OPI Full Size) 15ml/RM59
8 chart-smashing shades inspired by the icon Mariah Carey. These shades include four new OPI Liquid Sand (TM) lacquers featuring groundbreaking technology for a textured, matte finish infused with reflective sparkle. OPI nail lacquers contain no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and each includes OPI's exclusive ProWide (TM) Brush for the ultimate in application.

My thoughts: I got so confused between the description on the card and the actual OPI that I received. The shade that I got is Call Me Gwen-ever from the Spiderman Collection and the card says it suppose to be shade from the Mariah Carey's Collection. It's a big disappointment to me because I already have Call Me Gwen-ever. Now what am I gonna do with 2 bottles of the same shade?

5. Yadah (Anti Trouble Spot Full Size) 15g/RM35
High potent pimple cream with concentrated formula helps reduce spots, blemishes and blackheads gently yet effectively without drying the skin surface. Combats inflammation, improves skin immunity without irritation and promotes healing. Free from preservatives, paraben, mineral oil, benzophenone, sulphate and artificial coloring.

My thoughts: I never heard of anyone using this before. But it is worth a try. Since it's from Yadah, I think it won't be too bad. However, I hardly have breakouts now, I'm not sure when I will have the chance to use this.

6. Organix (Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo and Conditioner) 385ml/RM39.90
This sensual and alluring blend of cherry blossom extracts and organic Asian ginseng root helps invigorate the scalp and hair follicle to add volume at the root while nourishing your hair with replenishing organic rice milk and bamboo extract for hydration and shine.

My thoughts: I normally dislike receiving sample sachets in my beauty box, but shampoo and conditioner is really helpful when I go traveling. I really hate hotel shampoo, but it is also troublesome to bring my everyday shampoo. Shampoo sachets like this comes really handy. I'm going to keep this for my next trip.

7. The Body Shop (Strawberry Shower Gel) 250ml/RM22
This soap-free shower gel contains real strawberry seed oil. It has a deliciously sweet scent. Soap-free. Lather-rich.

My thoughts: I receive this in WonderBox debut box. I haven't even use that yet, now I have another same one!

Here are the vouchers for this month's CosmoBox...

I don't always utilize vouchers, so I think these are going to go waste. However, there's a curator note on the product card that enables subscribers to redeem a deluxe size of Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW foundation from Benefit counter, which I think I will use....

Overall, I think this month's CosmoBox is not too bad compared to last month's. But personally, I'm disappointed with the OPI and Body Shop shower gel because those are stuff which I already have.

This is my last CosmoBox subscription. I think I won't be renewing my subscription anytime because I am not satisfied with their customer service. I tried to contact the team but no one get back to me. As you know, I am traveling a bit these few weeks. I need to know when they send out the box so I can arrange my shipping address to make sure someone will be receiving it for me. None of their team get back to me, so I had to let it be. Thankfully, it arrived safely in my grandma's house. Or else I will have to drive to somewhere to pick it up, which can be a hassle.

@Jessying: You're right. After this I'm going to subscribe only 1 beauty box. No point getting so many.
