Subcription boxes have finally made their way to Malaysia! I obviously could not resist temptation and jumped right in!
Cosmobox! I plucked the following passage from their website:
THE BEST OF BEAUTY IN MALAYSIA
Packaging for the Cosmobox is amazing! It comes in a white embossed box in a chic black and pink sleeve.
Lots of ribbons and tissue paper later I finally came to the products! I can tell you here that I was disappointed when I opened the box. I actually thought we would get more/bigger sized products.
From L-R: Wella SP Smoothen Range Shampoo and Hair Mask, Elie Saab Le Parfum EDT, Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash, Revlon Photo Ready 3D Volume Mascara and Nail Shop's 6-way Nail File and Buffer,
Anyways, lets get to the products:
Wella SP Smoothen Tange Shampoo and Hair Mask
I love the hair mask! The shampoo not so much. The shampoo cleansed my hair quite well but left it in tangles and knots! Though, I do believe this is because of my waist length hair. The mask worked wonders on my knotty, tangle-y damp hair! I applied it on and waited a few minutes before I washed it off. Once the water hit it - swoosh! Super smooth tangle free hair! *love*
The only thing that bothered me was the smell of the product. Both these products smell kinda grandma-y to me. I have a feeling it's just me though. LOL.
The Nail Shop 6-way Nail File and Buffer
I am not one to buff my nails but I did try it out. All I needed was a quick 30 second file and buff and my nails were shiny! Now I can definitely bust out my holographic and metallic beauties :)
Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
This came in just in time! My morning facial cleanser just ran out! Ha!
I tried this a few times already and I can tell you that it leaves you face squeaky clean! Squeaky clean with no tightness actually. I have tried many facial washes which although cleanses very well, leaves my skin really tight. This is actually really refreshing for me.
Elie Saab Le Parfum EDT 1ml
I never knew Elie Saab had perfumes. Talk about being outdated.
Anyways although I only got a small sample this actually can last me quite a while. I wore it the other day (just one spritz) and it lasted me the whole day. I could still smell a hint of it after I reached home after work! The scent for this perfume is light and sophisticated. There's roses and honey and a hint of jasmine in it. I am usually a fruity-perfume kind of girl but I do see myself giving Le Parfum a chance in the future!
And finally, my favourite item in the box!
Revlon Photoready3D Volume Mascara
This is Revlon's Photoready3D Volume Mascara (RM39). I am not one who usually wears make up at all but I love this mascara! It really does lengthen and volumize my lashes! I am always skeptical when it comes to trying out new mascara. For as long as I can remember, almost all of the mascara I have tried would have relocated to below my lower lashes by the end of the day. Not this one though!!
A definite must have from this box for me!
The price of this box : RM33
Do I think it is worth it? Considering that the mascara alone is RM39 of course it is. I think. I still have 5 months to go; only then shall I make up my mind :)
