Hi all! I’m dog-tired but wanted to do a quick update on July’s Black Box!! In case you hadn’t heard, Black Box (not to be confused with the Little Black BeautyBox last reviewed here) is a FREE sample box which is sent to a select group of subscribers, and is very limited in quantity! I’ve been on the waitlist forever, and this is my very first box! So yeah, not the most ahead of the curve maybe, but it still gives me a rush… who doesn’t love free stuff??
Black Box is somewhat different from the other subscription boxes out there, as it is not just about beauty. It also includes lifestyle and other useful items. So, let’s take a look shall we?
Clockwise from top left:
Take5ive Energy Drink – comes in 4 variants, I received the Brain Power drink. Will probably be needing that once the clock strikes on Monday!
Super Charcoal Roasted Ipoh White Coffee – 3 satchets of different flavors (Classic, brown sugar, hazelnut). I read somewhere before that S’poreans consume the most coffee in the world, and i probably contribute to a large % of that statistic! So i say YAY coffee!
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser – this has been in every subscription box lately… I guess the folks are really trying to revive interest in this product
Jane Iredale Glowtime Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream – an established brand, but new entrant to Singapore (relatively speaking). Who doesn’t like to sample new BBs?
Variety of coupons… i’m more stoked about the plastic zip-top pouch it came in! Yes, i think that fully qualifies me for auntie-hood!
L’oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil – I’ve recently finished my Josie Maran Argan hair serum (which i LOVED!!!) and am looking to replenish. Heard lots of great things about this, didn’t quite like the scent when I first tried it, but hey, maybe another try will change my mind!
TheFaceShop Real Nature Mask Sheet Pomegranate – yay paper mask!!! Need I say more??
Purer Skin Miracle Serum – this is perhaps the most intriguing little sample in this box for me… a new home-grown beauty brand that uses bird’s nest extract.
To be completely honest, this Black Box had me going humpf…! rather loudly. But, this bears repeating, the Black Box is completely free! There is nothing here that I wouldn’t use, well maybe except the Take5ive drink (just because I don’t take energy drinks, not even red bull) but el hubs can probably guzzle it down like a man without blinking. If you, like me, love a good surprise and a bunch of freebies to perk up your day, sign up for the Black Box at www.blackbox.sg!
