OK.. i missed my box on Monday and only rec’d them ytd (thanks to mommy for collecting it from Singpost for me..) I’m very excited about this month’s box.. partly cuz of the new packaging (which will be shown below) and also cuz it’s Mother’s Day! Wonder what they have this month….? scroll down for more…
The box feels abit like Glamabox packaging.. but the recycle bag inside is definitely COOL! But again, i still prefer box tho.. at least for now.. Like Vanity Trove, at least the box can be re-use to store/keep things.. whereas this recycle bag, i think will only come handy if i’m going holiday or any short getaway..
First in the list that caught my attention is this Healing Oil Treatment (10ml).. Had read many good reviews about it but clueless whr to get it.. Just like what bellabox mentioned bef.. i think i’ve been living inside a rock! hahahaha.. This healing oil treatment is a therapeutic hair oil.. grabbed from their web, said to be:
- intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
- hair that is ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
- natural UV protection extends the life of color treatments
- reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%
Next, Elizabeth Arden’s Youth-restoring capsules (2 qty). By the look, you know it’s meant for mom! LOL restore her youth!! oops!! average woman can start using anti-aging products once they are 26.. goodness.. i think i can keep this for myself already..
Sally Hanson nail hardener…pretty known brand.. This item can act as a base coat bef you apply polish.. but.. i don’t need more base coat.. i’ve got plenty! and i’ve just cleared some old stock few weeks back (Sally Hanson Hard as Nails series too!!) and now, i got Sally Hanson back!! gosh!! im cursed! HAHAHAHA! Meant to stick w Sally Hanson!! Good thing is.. it’s not something bad..
my first thot when i got this bot.. “oh shucks! not another moisturizer again!!?” but i’m still eager to try it! hahaaha i’m one of those curious girl who likes to try everything and anything i got even if i don’t need them or alr have them!! New things seems more effective!! Don’t you agree??? hahahaha!!
Anyway, this moisturizer seems like nothing when you apply.. but as it slowly gets absorb, you will feel the difference.. i’ll take an example like Crabtree & Evelyn, their moisturizer feels.. quite solid/contrentrated/creamy (watever u call sth less watery, it wun flow around ur palm as u move) and after application, you skin feels powdery smooth, lightly scented and not oily.. you will love it immediately!
But Dirty Works lotion is almost opposite.. its more watery (it will flow whichever direction u move) and the scent is strong – that if after u apply. The strong scent will start to overwhelm you like u have put on some perfume. It does not have powdery smooth feeling but it has watery smooth feel! watery smooth(???!) u must be thinking… wat the hell is that feeling?? .. LOL.. it’s kinda hard to explain but when you apply it, it’s as if the moisture is really being absorb. Your skin feels moist and not powery.
Which is better?? I think it really depends on user preference. If you asked me. i would use C&E before slp as its more relaxing soothing.. i wont wana get choked by the scent when i slp.. But if its during the day (perhaps in office) i might consider using DW..
Last but not least.. another Youth related cream.. I think May box is really meant for moms… it’s all about YOUTH-RESTORING.. this is Enavose Youth Guard Cream.. i almost got tricked by the bottle!! it says “open” with a right turning arrow.. i thot i can turn open the cap.. after i turned i was like.. WHY still not open?! And now i think im SMART enuff to know that this must be a safety cap? must push dw and turn to open!!! after i push dw and about to turn it, i saw the cream pump out from a little opening.. im not that smart afterall! >_< hahahaha… Turn and pump for cream. turn back to lock the pump.. ahhhh… wat am i doing?!
This month’s Bellabox has a little pibk env too.. thot its will be like VT, voucherssss… but its not. They’re some product introduction and a Spring Spree Invitation.. 🙂
All in all, though it’s not a very amzing box this month.. but still found some interesting items..
