The Lilac Box - Box 3

The Lilac Box is the only box that does not have a subscribtion but yet I love them to bits! All the blind dates in their box never cease to amaze me. This box is no different.

I received this box sometime in May but have not gotten the chance to use most of the products. Getting sick did not help either. But I thought - what the hell - and am going to post about this box because it is that wonderful! I have only tried one item in this box so far and I am loving it. Really.


This month's box came a little different from the usual packaging, the guys included a little lace ribbon along the box. Something like a french lace garter to me. Very sexy indeed.

This were the goodies in the box:

On to the products individually:


The fusing top of juicy bergamot translates her energy and her urban edginess. Like a sweet smile, the sparkling notes of bergamot stir the senses. Her natural femininity is conveyed through a beautiful floral bouquet of apple blossom and jasmine that caresses this natural seductress. The delicate floral notes bring elegance and a touch of seduction to the fragrance. An olfactory game of hide and seek grows into a sexy veil of warm and sensual vanilla, and addictive sandalwood.

This is a gorgeous scent. I have only spritzed it once and I am thinking if I should go get a full size. *must not shop YET*

BABOR | HSR® lifting extra firming creamThe exclusive Lifting treatment with its intense anti-wrinkle effect creates an all around lifting effect together with the HSR® Lifting Integral Complex leaving skin looking smoother and tighter. Hyaluronic acid and shea butter provide additional skin care while vitamin E serves as an effective "radical catcher."
BABOR | HSR® lifting extra firming eye cream

With the HSR® Lifting Integral Complex this highly effective anti-wrinkle eye cream gives the delicate skin around the eye area more elasticity. In addition, an active ingredient composition made from peptides, green beans and rutin compresses the collagen network making skin look visibly tighter and smoother. Natural oils like macadamia oil, corn seed oil and shea butter provide additional treatment. Vitamin E acts as a "radical catcher". This perfume-free formula has been tested by dermatologists and eye doctors and meets the highest standards.

PHYTO | Phytodéfrisant Botanical Relaxing Balm
A 99% plant-based formula containing Ferula, Horseradish, Chamomile Matrucarua and Sage to protect and provide natural hair relaxing benefits. The innovative alcohol-free formula works to hydrate and strengthen hair without making it greasy or weighing it down.

This is one interesting product. I wonder if it works on my hair which is quite straight already. Imagine having iron-straight hair with just this!

PAYOT | Pâte Grise
Since 1947, Pâte Grise has been a beauty secret handed down from mother to daughter to treat small blemishes. It works overnight to clear them up – just like magic – and it is a favourite with the women who use it! In 2008, Pâte Grise was reformulated for improved antibacterial efficacy and a more pleasant texture.

PAYOT | Spéciale 5
An essential complement to Pâte Grise, Spéciale 5 has cleared up the blemishes of thousands of girls and women. This dual-phase lotion used to require shaking before use to mix all the active ingredients.

Now, all it takes is a press on the pump dispenser to release the Spéciale 5 gel. Much easier to apply, it covers the treatment area more effectively and leaves the skin soft and healthy.

MAX FACTOR | The Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum
The Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum goes beyond delivering just cosmetics coverage; the built-in protective serum with SPF 15 containing Vitamin E and Green Tea, will help fight the signs of ageing by providing UV protection and moisturization for long-term beauty benefits, when used daily.

The Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation + Serum is an intelligent, dual benefit foundation. The full coverage formula contains a specially interwoven soft focus technology that acts to capture light and provide a radiant glow. Simultaneously, the technology helps to optically blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and gives the foundation its rich, velvety texture, helping it to glide and blend easily.

Yves Rocher | Rose Fraîche Shower Gel
Fresh Rose / Rose Fraîche ~ developed by perfumer Shyamala Maisondieu.

Discover the delicate freshness of a fresh picked rose in this eau de toilette with floral-citrus notes that leaves your skin delicately scented. The charm of a fragrance that recreates the freshness and delicate perfume of a rose in a garden at daybreak. Composed of Rose absolute and Grapefruit, Bergamot and Mandarin essential oils.

This is the bulk of the box - a full size Yves Rocher Rose 
Fraîche shower gel. I am not one to like Rose scents but I liked this very much. It is really light and not as in your face as those potpourri scents. A definite winner in my books!
Would I subscribe for this box again? OF COURSE I would! The items in the box are always form high end brands (their main selling point actually) and the value is definitely over what I pay (RM50). I really do hope they start a subscription plan soon. Stalking their pages and beating other girls to this box is sure a lot of work if you ask me. :P
