Modbox August 2013

Modbox is back. And now the beauty box is back with an even more exciting offering for only RM9! You read it right! Its only RM9 and definitely the cheapest in town!

This box is of complimentary but heck if I had known it was RM9, I would have happily signed up out of my own pocket. THANX Modbox for contacting me and gifting the Modbox August 2013 edition!

Every month, the contents will differ. For RM9, all you need to do is to select one item from each of the 3 categories. And if you have more products that you like, well then buy another unit of Modbox:D Now let me run you through the simple purchasing steps before reviewing the products.
STEP 1: Log on to www.modbox.com.my
STEP 2: Get started (do register your details firstlah and fill up the beauty profile if you can so that the folks at Modbox can get to know your needs and wants better). There are 3 categories and you choose one product from each category.
Had I chosen it myself, then I will certainly opt for Crabtree&Evelyn Lavender Hand Therapy as this is the product that I have been happily using for the last 1 year.

If your choice is Ronasutra 2-in-1 Mineral Foundation & Powder then you will be prompted to select the shade that you want.
If the item is unavailable then it will be marked Sold Out.
STEP 3
When you have chosen you items, proceed to check out. Its RM9 for your chosen Modbox of 3 items and RM6 for delivery (Peninsular Malaysia) or RM9 (East Malaysia).


My box...a little special since the folks at Modbox sent me an exclusive blogger kit. In it there are 4 products instead of the usual 3. THANX Modbox:D 
A pressie! 
THANX for the box Modbox!
An explanation of the items inside the August 2013 edition.
Aha...always read every side of a piece of paper. This one has a 15% discount for me to purchase the full sized item if I like the sample!
Nicely packed! No spillage etc. Awesome maximus!
Crabtree&Evelyn Lavender Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy 25g
Now this is a darn good deal. This item retails at RM30 for 25g and I just paid RM9 to receive something valued at RM30. Full size mind you!
I have been using Crabtree&Evelyn's hand therapy series for some time. While the Gardener range is my fave, this Lavender is just as good as far as its efficacy is concerned. In fact there is one tube sitting in my handbag! 
Its a lavish cream infused with macadamia nut oil, shea butter and lavender oil. Free from mineral oils, parabens or even propylene glycol, I am assured that this product will not trigger my eczema hot spots. Further enriched with Vitamin E and myrrh extract, this is total care for my hands that are quite abused from my frequent housework (I clean the floor using my hands and a cloth - no mops for me:P)
Its rich but quickly absorbed into our skin. The mild lavender scent is a lovely form of aromatherapy. My usual habit is to cup my hands and take a deep breath after each application:D

There are extras that comes with the choice of Crabtree&Evelyn Lavender Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy! You'll also get 1 x 0.5ml Somerset Meadow EDT vial + 1 x 5ml sachet of Tarocco Orange Body Lotion.
A light and refreshing scent! I know I will be heading to add this to my collection of fragrances.
I am travelling again in the next few days...so this will come in handy:D This Crabtree&Evelyn Tarocco Orange with Eucalyptus & Sage will definitely be a refreshing lotion to use at the end of a busy day! *packing this into my toiletry bag*
20% off storewide at Crabtree&Evelyn! Marvellous since I can restock my Hand Therapy stock! Or should I use it to purchase the Somerset Meadow EDT? We shall see!
Second category and Modbox folks have chosen the UNICO Advanced UV Defense SPF50 PA+++ 7g (RM198 for 30ml).
Brilliant choice as they must have figured out that I need more protection for my face with my sun loving habits. The sunscreen is rich at first touch but after application, there is no oily after feel. This UNICO Advanced UV Defense SPF50 PA+++  is formuated to offer a range of incredibly effective filters to fight off UV rays, the evil behind premature aging and pigmentation.
Murad Hybrids Eye Lift Illuminator 0.44ml sachet (Normal size is 1.8ml @RM165). Nice size...and off it goes to my travelling pouch. 
I have not used any Murad product but have heard raving reviews from friends. This product is formulated for those of you with dry skin around your eyes, fine lines (like mine) and dark eye bags. Beyond a skin care, this is actually treatment cosmetic which combines the effects of makeup to lighten and brighten your eyes along with the skin care benefits of an eye cream to restore, repair and perfect the skin around your sensitive eye region. 

Now RM9 for the above box of goodies. Definitely the most affordable and cheapest beauty box in the market for you to purchase samples before making a  decision of whether to buy a full size. And if you get lucky, then you might even be able to score a full size product!

For your own subscription, then head on to 
www.modbox.com.my. Do keep in touch with them on Facebook too for the latest updates! 

And the 4th item that I received as a bonus is the Ronasutra 2-in-1 Mineral Foundation & Powder. Its light and airy at first glance. Since its 100% mineral-based foundation and powder, its pretty much suitable for all skin types including sensitive and problematic skin. This product is also free from blue pigments so it gives a more natural finish.
Sample given is 1g tub. Retails @ RM48 for 8g.
Light and airy. Application is with a sponge or kabuki sponge for even coverage. Mt preference is the Kabuki brush.
Choose from 8 shades and mine is Natural Buff which is very natural on most Asian skins.
