About half a year ago, I reviewed for Modbox and recently, they approached me to be a part of their Modbox Bloggers Community where I will receive a special Bloggers Kit once every two months with all the beauty samples to review. In addition, I will also get exclusive invites to events and workshops by their brand partners, as well as giveaways for my readers from time to time! So why not?! I get to review and try out beauty samples and at the same time, you guys get to participate in special giveaways as well! Awesome right?!
Description from the product page:
"Modbox is a beauty box discovery service in Malaysia. We partner with beauty brands so you can sample products before you buy. Modbox gives you the power to choose the samples that you want in your Beauty Box. Because a lady knows herself best!"
I have previously mentioned in my blog posts that I am not a fan of beauty products as I always have the perception that there are simply just too many products and brands out there and how the heck am I supposed to figure out which one works best for me? And being a frugal person, I never really buy beauty products especially now that I am a SAHM and there are not much opportunities for me to go out anyway. I don't even wear makeup when I was working last time, let alone now! But of course, deep down inside, I do want to look good and on the occasions that I am out in public, I do want to look presentable and pleasant to look at.
So to be given the opportunity again to work with Modbox, I was of course delighted to be able to try out beauty sample products delivered right up to my door and I don't have to risk wasting my money buying the actual size products and end up not liking it. So anyway, I received my first blogger kit beauty box delivered right to my doorstep few days ago and this is how they looked like the moment I opened up my parcel:
Here is a short summary of the products:
1) Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Hand Therapy (RM35 for 25g).
=> My feedback: I put on some on my hand and the first thing that I realised is the fruit flowery scent of lavender. Nice! My skin also felt smoother and softer after applying the cream. Will need to apply in longer run to fully test the results of this product. Btw I also received a Tarocco Orange Body Lotion sample pack and a Somerset Meadow eau de toilette perfume vial. I used to collect perfume vial!
2) Ronasutra 2-in-1 Mineral Foundation & Powder (RM48 for 8g).
=> My feedback: I asked for ivory color (code 00) as it is the closest match to my fair skin and I love it! Its powdery texture when applied smoothly onto my face is able to cover up my blemishes and smoothen my facial skin as well giving me an overall fain skin outlook. And the awesome thing is you don't need to put up so much powder as a little bit of it does wonders already!
3) Unico Advanced UV Defense SPF50/PA+++ (RM198 for 30ml).
=> My feedback: This sample came in a very distinct blood red bottle. The cream is vanilla beige in color and I dabbed some onto my left cheek. It does not feel sticky at all and has a nice and very refreshing smell but I will need to try this out a few more days to fully test the results of this product. I am happy to be able to try this out as being in Malaysia, we get hot hot hot weather all year round, so to have this product is really handy!
4) Murad Hybrids Eye Lift Illuminator (RM165 for 1.8ml).
=> My feedback: I dabbed some right below my eye (on my dark circles and eye bags to be precise) and immediately felt a minor tinge feeling where the cream was applied on. After a few seconds, I can actually feel some tightening motion below my eyes as the cream dried up, kinda like the cream is stretching my skin, pulling them away and I can noticed my dark circles and eye bags are not so visible and obvious. Will try few more times to fully test the product.
Do give Modbox a try as there are potential with unknown brands and for the price comparison with other beauty subscriptions (which could be double or more of what Modbox is offering)! As for me, I will definitely look forward to trying out more beauty products and being part of Modbox Bloggers Community!
