Product Review - Modbox

~ Posted on Wednesday, August 7, 2013 at 5:10 PM ~

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?!

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:

Modbox

 Here is a short summary of the products:

1) Crabtree & Evelyn Lavender Hand Therapy (RM35 for 25g).

Modbox

=> 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!

Modbox

 

2) Ronasutra 2-in-1 Mineral Foundation & Powder (RM48 for 8g).

Modbox

Modbox

=> 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).

Modbox

Modbox

=> 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!

Product Review & Giveaway - Boys Winter Tie Dye Pyjamas

~ Posted on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 1:00 PM ~

I had previously reviewed the breastfeeding cover and nappy wallet by BabyButton. Continuing on from there, I am now reviewing another product which is sold on their website, the Boys Winter Tie Dye Pyjamas by Whatever Wear.

 BabyButton Nappy Wallet

"We take great pride in sourcing the highest quality materials at an affordable price. We see the BabyButton collection as no ordinary baby product, this collection has been inspired by a Mum made for Mums. These products are not mass produced that adds no real purpose to the baby or the mum. We offer practical solutions to real problems that Mothers face. Baby products that have a purpose, we make a difference to the whole Motherhood experience. We offer real products, real solutions to common baby and Motherhood problems." 

BabyButton Nappy Wallet

I requested to review the Tie Dye Pyjamas design because it looks kinda like a soldier clothing, except in blue color dye. I think my 4 years old boy will go crazy if the pyjamas is in green hahaha... Anyway, I did the initial tests on machine washing, drying, etc and it all works out fine, no discolouration, no fading, no shrinking. Good quality!

The first time my boy saw the pyjamas, he was excited because it looks like soldier clothing (even though it's blue) and he can't wait to put it on. Please note that the pyjamas is a tad too big because the smallest size on hand is for 6 years old and I don't really mind getting larger clothes for my kiddos as that means I can let them wear longer. All I need to do is just fold up the extra bits and it's good already!

The pyjamas kept my boy warm throughout the night and because it is 100% cotton knit, it is also comfortable for my boy's skin as well. To sum up my review, this is a great product!

You can find a lot of designs and products from BabyButton website.
