ModBox January 2013 Edition & February ModBox Winners

This is the second box by ModBox. The first ModBox exceeded my expectation. I had a giveaway for February ModBox last month. If you've LIKE ModBox Facebook page, you probably already know who are the winners:
  • Chan Sook Yuen
  • Christine K
  • ChelloJello
Congratulations winners!!!! Please send me an email stating your mailing address and contact number. My email is jerine[dot]lay[at]gmail. I need to forward to ModBox team so that they can ship out your February ModBox. If you didn't win it, it's ok.... You can subscribe your own February ModBox <<here>>. It's really affordable and won't burn a hole in your pocket. 

Anyway, here's what I got in the January ModBox....

I think this month's box is really not too bad. I really love the Kiss Me eyeliner and Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel. And they have a balanced of skincare and makeup in their box as always. Now, let's get into each of the product.

1. Claire Organics Handmade Organic Soap (suitable for face and body) (RM16 - RM23/100g)
Feel luxuriously moisturised with the homemade goodness of Claire Organics' soaps. Made only from fresh and natural high-quality ingredients such as organic virgin olive oil and essential oils, each soap is manually cut and carefully cured for 45 days.

I love handmade soap! And I'm happy to receive the aloe vera one. It smells really refreshing.... I thought I smell lavender or ylang ylang in the soap but I can't tell for sure. The soap is so pretty. It actually makes me feel so reluctant to use it.

2. SANTE Naturkosmetik Body Lotion (Acai Energy/Coconut Dream/Goji Power/Grenadine Spirit) (RM39.90/150ml)
Pamper your skin after a long day with SANTE's organic nourishing body lotion. Complete with a harmonishing and memorable scent, it features precious organic camellia oil that is bound to leave your skin feeling irresistibly smooth and soft.

I never heard of this brand before. The one that I got is Grenadine Spirit. I really love the texture but not the scent. It smells like fruit cake! And I really hate food scent on my moisturizer. Nonetheless, I am using this as heavy duty hand cream while I'm at work. It provides instant moisture and last for a really long time.

3. Kiss Me Heroince Make Impact Liquid Eyeliner (RM49.90)
Voted by you as a must-have-can't-leave-home-without-it item! This long-lasting waterproof eyeliner will take you through an entire day of sweat, tears and rubbin.

I super love the Kiss Me Heavy Rotation eyeliner. So I think this would be a good one since it is from the same brand. I love the super fine brush, it is so easy to handle. And the ink is jet black and really intense, you don't have to reapply a few times to get a super black line. I will make a comparison post with the Heavy Rotation one soon.

4. Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel (RM159/30ml)
Say goodbye to those pesky blackheads and whiteheads! This sebum gel packs a punch with its phyto bio-engineering formulation gel, controlling skin congestion and reducing blackheads to leave you with a clearer, smoother skin.

I heard a lot of good reviews on the Cellnique Skin Action Sebum Gel before so I was quite excited to receive this. However, there is no instruction on how to use it on the product card and the tube. I had to google for it. Will try this out and let you guys know if it works. This month's ModBox comes with 1 voucher from Cellnique. The wording of the voucher is really vague. I'm not sure if I can use the voucher and buy a product with RM20 off. Or I have to buy a product and receive another RM20 worth of product for free. Anyone have any idea?

5. My Beauty Diary Bulgarian White Rose (RM39.90/10 pcs)
Brighten up your skin before a big night out! With white rose hydrosol and kiwi essence, this mask instantly whitens and hydrates skin to give you that radiant glow.

For some reason I don't get too excited to receive sheet mask in my beauty box. So... no comment on this, but I will use it soon.

The team also includes a "resolution" section for us to fill up on the card. Here's my resolution...

What do you think of this month's ModBox. I personally think it is not a bad one to subscribe....considering it is the cheapest beauty box service and the products they feature good stuff. In terms of monetary value, I think it is worth it. If you're still scouting around for beauty box to try on, do consider ModBox.
