Hi all ^___^
Oohhhh, it's a month of beauty box all over in Indonesia. Beauty enthusiast is racing to be the first who grabbed these boxes, no wonder almost all of them is sold out within the first week of announcing. And I'm lucky enough to be invited by LolaBox on their first beauty box!
As someone who wants to be the first to try on new cosmetics on the block and realizing it is NOT an easy task to be able to gather all the products out there in the same time with all the events, invitations and writings to do in the same time, these boxes may come in handy. It is impossible to buy everything in the market, especially when all I want is a first bite without digesting the whole pie.
Here are all the first bites I get from LolaBox April 2013 edition. From makeup to skincare and perfume is here. Gift certificate and makeup lessons from NYX, Taman Sari Spa, etc. The products inside the box consist of:
Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel
Sebamed Clear Face Deep Cleansing Facial Toner
Sebamed Clear Face Cleansing Bar
Orlane Extreme Line Reducing Lip Care
Be 21 EDP By Orlane (7,5 ml)
Orlane Anagenese 25+ First Time Fighting Care
Orlane Anagenese 25+ First Time Fighting Care Eye Contour
Platinum Ristra Longlasting Lipstick Chic Lavender
from Taman Sari Royal Heritage ( Murut Bodyscrub, Cocoa Series Body Scrub, Papaya Enzyme Series Body Scrub, and Green Coconut Series Conditioner.
Some like the lipsticks and Sebamed may be used several times while some are so tiny and comes in a sample sizes, I think it's really is first bite (as in just one bite).
This is the box, as seen above, it can be used as makeup box, present box, or storage box for other stuffs. Simple yet pretty.
The whole box when opened smells like a spa thanks to Scentsibility.
Now, here are the reviews and some first glance try out in using the products given.
Orlane Extreme Line Reducing Care can be used immediately and give instant result as well. The lines on my lips are filled out in a jiffy without those sticky feeling like most lip balm do. I love this product and I think I want to have the full size of it. Product like this is considered brilliant and suitable to be in the box, since customer can try it and get instant result.
While others seems a bit too little for the customer to even see a changes made. But we can try the texture, scent or sensitivity caused on the skin. This is beneficial for those who have a rather delicate condition due to their allergic reaction.
The perfume reminds me a lot of a ... tissue ^__^ the smell is really like perfumed tissue back in those days when I'm still in primary.
These are the close up view of the texture of Orlane skincare for the face and eye. Both are light and easy to use. Due to the size, I can only use them for 3-5 days.
Products from Taman Sari Royal Heritage. Customer may try and tested which scrub they prefer, I like the Papaya Enzyme best (the one with the orange color) since it smells good. But since they are so tiny the body scrub couldn't even finish a leg. The conditioner is okay and quite pampering. The size is enough for short - medium length hair.
I wish they all come in bigger sizes ^__^ but I think the variety is relatively good as customers has ideas of this brand and can feel the spa ambiance it brings.
Inside the box, Lola also gives us a piece of paper which shown the prices of the products sold (in regular size).
The last item I've tried is Chic Lavender by Ristra. The lipstick is a bit moisturizing and easy to use, but the color appears different than what I expected a chic lavender would be. It looks like a normal pinkish red lipstick.
LolaBox deliver the box to me on the day they say it would be.
All the products given are exactly the same as the one received by my friends
The box when received in in good condition, neat, and tidy.
I love the letter that comes in each box and the scent coming out from it.
I like the variety inside the box and the quantity as well.
I think LolaBox is suitable for beauty enthusiasts who want a nice surprise knocking on their door every month, consistently and dependable.
Thank you LolaBox, hopefully more products and more items can be delivered by you every month.
