WonderBox Malaysia - First Edition!

♫ 周杰伦 - 你好吗


Malaysia's first ever WonderBox finally arrived at my doorstep today! :D

WonderBox is one of the first monthly subscription beauty boxes in Malaysia. Basically, when you subscribe (for a minimal fee), you will receive a box filled with up to 5 samples of premium cosmetics and beauty products every month. It's a really good way to try out new products, and totally value for money! :)

Securely wrapped in bubble wrap
I absolutely love the simple yet classy black & white packaging!
Yup, I'm a total sucker for beautifully tied bows.
As you can see, the box was securely wrapped in bubble wrap so that it won't get damaged during shipping. The box itself is a lovely creamy white colour with embossed patterns on it, with the WonderBox logo in the middle. The black ribbon bow adds to the overall elegant packaging and makes it look like present. I loved it so much that I was quite reluctant to undo the ribbon bow, haha!





Once opened, the first thing you see is a welcome card with details of the items found inside the box, along with a discount card for The Body Shop and a brochure from Clinelle. For this first box, there are 3 full-sized products and 2 travel-size items.

Clinelle SnoWhite Mask (50ml - full size)
This rinse-off mask is used to strengthen the skin's barriers, restore and maintain optimal hydration while brightening dull and lacklustre complexions.

I seldom use masks, and have never tried rinse-off ones before. Perhaps I should give this a try, or let my friend (who loves masks) try this. :D

Clinelle Blemish Clear (15ml - full size)
The gel is used to speed up skin healing and tightens enlarged pores. It also helps to relieve skin pain, inflammation and clears acne in just 1-2 days.

I guess this could be worth a try when pimples/zits attack again. >__< I really hope that doesn't happen though.


Elianto Princezna Mascara (7g - full size)
Gives even sparse, fine lashes volume and length thanks to its unique Twist Brush for maximum coverage on each and every lash. Plus it's enriched with vitamin E and protein rich keratin for healthier lashes.

I am super fascinated by the 'twist brush' concept of this mascara, and can't wait to try it out. I really hope it's waterproof though.

The Body Shop Strawberry Bath Shower Gel (60ml - travel size)
A refreshing cleansing gel that lathers up in the bath or shower to leave your skin feeling clean, fresh and subtly scented.

I don't think this item needs any explanation. TBS shower gels are great and smell so nice, and lathers up nicely with use of a loofah. :)

Sothys HOMME Tri-Active Cleanser (15ml - trial size)
This cleanser has a fresh and light texture to soften and soothe sensitive skin. It also regenerates and repairs damaged skin.

This looks pretty awesome, and it's ideal for both men and women! :D You can definitely give this to the man in your life to try out, or try it yourself first and decide later. ;)

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this first WonderBox, as there are 3 full-sized items and 2 deluxe samples. However, I wish they'd include more cosmetics in the box. Maybe for the next box? *hint hint* If you like the look of this first edition and would like to subscribe for the next (November) box, please click on the image/link below to subscribe via my referral code! :D


Future boxes will include brands such as Inglot, Jurlique, O.P.I., SAMPAR, TheFaceShop, Office Makeup USA, and many more! So why wait? Subscribe now! :)

I'm a big fan of mascara and I am actually looking for the review on Princezna Mascara. Honestly I tried it at the elianto booth It's not bad cost about MYR 33. Looks good the effect somehow similar to the maybelline magnum volume Express mascara. I tried it on my lower lash it really elongated them in a neat and natural way. Only thing is that It's not waterproof. I was hoping someone could tell me more about their experience with this product.

LauraLeia said...

Wai Yee: Yup, love the box! <3 I wish they'd include more makeup items and perhaps a few more samples for their first box though.

superpower: Ohh i see! It's too bad that it's not waterproof though. I seldom use mascara and the ones that I do use need to be waterproof coz I sweat easily and also rub my eyes a lot. >_<
