ModBox February 2013: The best ModBox so far...

This is by far my most favorite ModBox since their debut. Three reasons - (1) all full size products, except for one thing which is quite huge too, (2) a balance of skincare, makeup, hair and nail products, (3) a lot of interesting new stuff that I've been wanting to try but reluctant to spend my money on.

In a glance.....

1. SHAiRE London Silk Classic Collection Hair Perfume/Dry Shampoo full size (RM35.90/60ml)
This is THE ultimate all-in-one hair product! Great for in between washes, it cleanses, conditions and revitalizes your hair, and repairs and strengthens hair roots - all in one nifty little bottle. Spray on both hair and scalp, and trust us, you'll love how soft and silky hair feels after!

I've been wanting to try dry shampoo for a long time, but the one that I found are quite expensive (from Ouidad and Korres). I didn't really want to spend my money on it because it's a new product that I've never tried before, so I wasn't sure if I will like it or not. There are a few types of dry shampoo. I've seen the mousse type, powder type and this one is the spray type. I think it would be quite easy to use.

2. Perkins Nail Wrap full size (RM39.90/20 strips)
Can't find the time for a mani-pedi? Don't let that deter you from having fabulous and stylish nails! Perkins Nail Wrap is a super easy way to sport glamorous nails in an instant-just peel, apply and file!

This sounds too good to be true. It might sound like an easy application, but after scrutinizing those nail peels, I find that it might be quite hard to apply. And it is certainly not suitable for pedicure because the toe nails are way too small for it. Will review this soon when my nails get longer. This is also another product which I've been wanting to try for a long time but too stingy to spend my money on. The ones from Sally Hansen and Sephora aren't cheap!

3. Juice Beauty Cleansing Gel 120ml (RM115/200ml)
Brighten! Lighten! Tighten! Isn't that what we all want? Now, we can have all that for our skin with this brightening cleanser which results in a more refined complexion with its antioxidant-rich organic lemon, apple and purifying botanicals properties.

This is the only deluxe size product for this month. This is 120ml, that's not much difference from the full size 200ml. I love the Juice Beauty moisturizer, I think I will love this too since I'm trying to get myself into organic and natural ingredients skincare.

4. Essence Smokey Eyes Set (04 Show Off) full size (RM11.90/3g)
Smokey eyes just got easier! This handy set comes with a cream eyeliner that can be used as a base, a powder eyeshadow plus a dual-ended applicator. Definitely on our must-have list for a night out!

I've heard a lot of good things about Essence makeup but I didn't own anything before this. I'm looking forward to try this out soon. But I believe the applicator won't be of much use. For a perfect smokey eyes, you still need to apply them with your own brush. The texture for both are quite creamy and very pigmented.

5. Essence XXXL Nudes Lipgloss (05 Forever Rose) full size (RM9.90/5ml)
The ultimate shine for your lips! Keep your lips shimmery and moisturized with Vitamin E and Panthenol without leaving behind a sticky feeling.

The non-sticky feeling notion didn't impress me much because I have never ever tried any non-sticky lipgloss in my life even though so many brands claimed the same thing. True enough. BUT it is the least sticky of all the lipglosses I've tried. The color is really sheer, when you apply on your lips they just look like clear lipgloss.

ModBox arranged something special this month. If you write a review on the product and/or rate three products on their website, you will receive a mystery product in your next month ModBox. Remember to do so. You might miss out your chance on really cool stuff.

This month, two readers of this blog received a complimentary February box from ModBox. I am thankful to ModBox for the collaboration and I hope the winners love this month's ModBox as much as I do.

Initially there were 3 winners but 1 person forfeited the prize because she didn't reply my email. I feel a bit wasted because so many readers were anticipating for it. Next time if you join my giveaway, remember to check your email and/or check out this blog for announcement. It is really not fair for others who wanted the prize more than you.

ModBox is RM19.90 each month. You can subscribe it <<here>>.

I love it when beauty boxes include a mix of skincare + makeup!! I could skip anything that has to do with nails and hair though :) lol

This is definitely better than Vanity Trove!
