It's really funny how ALL my beauty box subscriptions come in the same week when, if I remember correctly, they should be spread out across 2 weeks.

Well, today I have my last box to review - the February Cosmobox. Honestly, it is looking quite good! There's a BeautyFoot foot mask, Wella hair treatments, Avene cleanser and toner, a Stage eyeliner and a whole bunch of Murad products!


On to the items in detail:


BeautyFoot | BeautyFoot easy Pack (RM55.90)
Beautyfoot is the perfect remedy to help treat hard, dry, rough or callused soles. This pair of foot mask is an innovative and natural home remedy aimed at treating unsightly foot problems in just one painless seating, extracting foot odor and remove unsightly dry skin, leaving you with beautiful renewed skin in just a few days.

I have seen similar products as this BeautyFoot mask around and was always curious about it. I think the first time I ever saw it was on YouTube where this beauty guru took photos of her feet before, DURING and after this treatment. The 'during' shots were...ewwww... but the 'after' shots showed her feet so smooth and shiny. I really do want to try this on but I regularly wear opened toed shoes, which means that if I do this everyone would be able to see my icky peeling feet D: Where is a long holiday when you need one! Haha.



Eau Thermale Avène | Avène Gentle Gel Cleanser (200ml/RM79.90)
Ths exceptionally smooth gel cleanse contains Avène Thermal Spring Water, micro-granules of Vitamin E and safflower oil to sooth and moisturize normal to combination sensitive skin without upsetting the skin's natural pH balance.

Eau Thermale Avène | Avène Gentle Toner (200ml/RM79.90)
This very gentle and protective alcohol-free toner contains Avène Thermal Spring Water and silicates to moisturize, soften and protect sensitive skin form external aggression.

My rather picky friend swears by the Avène Thermal Spring Water facial mist that she buys the large bottle to spray all over herself on a hot day. And my cousin swears by spring water being good for your skin whether you drink it or use it in your beauty routine.

Seeing that both these products contain spring water I guess it can't go all that wrong right?


Murad | White Brilliance Wrinkle and Pore Refining Treatment (30ml/RM418)
Serun that brightens your skin while tightening pores and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Reduces the appearance of pores by 62%!

Murad | White Brilliance Illiminating Day Moisture SPF 20 PA++ (50ml/RM298)
Light lotion illuminates and hydrates skin while protecting it from harmful UVA/UVB rays. It prevents formation sof dark spots and pigmentations. Pearl powder instantly gives the skin a luminous appearance.

Murad | White Brilliance Illiminating Night Moisture (50ml/RM308)
Antioxidant rich night cream that conditions and softens skin while infusing it with powerful brightening agents.

More Murad items for me and I haven't even used anything I received earlier on. And guess what came with all these Murad goodies - a RM30 voucher again! I wonder if I can use all my vouchers at one time. 3 vouchers would mean I can get RM90 off.. How I wish!



Murad | Oil-Free Sunblock SPF30 (50ml/RM170)
Prevents sign of premature aging caused by environmental exposure. It delivers high SPF protection and providing intense hydration with an oil free matte finish.

This is interesting. It would definitely be good for when I go snorkeling at the islands. Oil free means it won't be as harmful to the corals right? I forgot to at least take a whiff of the product to see if it had the standard Sunblock smell. I will update the post when I have tried it!



Wella Professional Care | Brilliance Treatment, Enrich Treatment and Enrich Self Warning Treatment (150ml/RM52)
The creamy mask of Brilliance helps to restore a healthy look to hair, leaving it with an instantly noticeable soft, irresistible touch, whilst Enrich Moisturizing enhances vibrancy of coloured hair, leaving it with an instantly noticeable soft, irresistible touch. Then cosy up with Self Warming to a unique rinse-out self-warming formula, which can replenish all hair textures, leaving hair instantly full of shine and soft to touch.

I am as usual going to pass on the treatment for colored hair to my mom and try out the other two. Moisturizing Treatments is definitely what I need. Self-warming tratment? I definitely have to try this soon. But it also means I will need to find a block of time to do this. I did not read the instructions yet (whats new huh) but I do believe that I would need at least 30minutes. Right? #fail

Hmm.. I wonder if all these treatments are OK to use by a person who has problems with hair fall <-- d:="" hair="" my="" nbsp="" number="" one="" p="" problem="">


Stage | Kohl Intense Pencil (RM33)
Stage Kohl Intense Pencil is a soft pencil that lines defines and shades the eyes with rich, intense color in a silky-smooth matte finish. Perfect for that smudged, smokey, sexy look.

I did try this one out and I love it! I only used it as a regular eyeliner though. It was really a very intensed black and glided on my lids perfectly. As for staying power and smudging - it stayed on well but smudged a little. But I guess it makes sense since it is supposed to be used to create that smudged, smokey, sexy look.

Honestly, Cosmobox has improved tremendously since their December box which is a very good thing. From all sample sized products to multiple full sized products in a box, I can't complain much. And from the looks of the price, the other products in the box are quite high end too!

Considering that I have finally gone through all my boxes, I have decide don which one to keep. Of the four subscriptions that I have, I am definitely going to keep my ModBox subscription and probably/maybe my Vanity Trove subscription, or should I keep this Cosmobox subscription?

I actually have a month more for VT and maybe 2 months for Cosmobox. I shall wait for each to expire and decide on the last box. Fair? No? How now brown cow?
