First Date With The Lilac Box (Unboxing)

♫ 周杰伦 - 明明就


Remember my teaser about The Lilac Box last month? Well, it finally arrived at my doorstep last week! Let me share with you how my "first date" with The Lilac Box went. ;) Dubbed "The Valentine's Day Box", read on to find out how much love this particular box gets from me. :P

I got you... The Lilac Box
The beauty box itself came securely wrapped in another layer of cardboard, which ensured that nothing was damaged during delivery. The presentation was simple - purple polka dot ribbon bow, sturdy (as in very sturdy indeed) cardboard box and a sticker with the words "I got you The Lilac Box".

A message from The Lilac Box
True to its name, the colour scheme for the box is lilac. Lilac ribbon, lilac paper, lilac shredded packing paper... even the note's piping is lilac-coloured. A first peek into the box reveals some eye-catching products.

First peek inside The Lilac Box
There are a total of 6 items included in this debut box, which is actually pretty darn good.

Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base (1ml x 4)
I love base makeup samples like these, if only because they're so easy to carry around. Burberry? Yes please!

Kérastase Resistance Rinse-Out Treatment (75ml)
Kérastase Resistance Reconstructing Shampoo (80ml)
Looks like hair care is becoming a legitimate concern these days, judging from the amount of hair care products I've seen in beauty boxes thus far. Anything that can help my damaged hair, I will gladly accept.

Roberto Cavalli Perfumed Body Lotion (30ml)
A word of warning: this scent is definitely not for those with dainty noses. It smells very grown-up, sexy and is definitely an attention-seeker. Reminds me of something, but I just cannot recall what it is. =/ The lotion itself is very lightweight, and easily absorbed into skin. I like it, but it's not the type of scent I would typically purchase.

MaxFactor Limited Edition Mini Nailfinity in "Boji" (4ml)
A very work-appropriate shade, this purple-grey-beige colour isn't exactly my cup of tea. I'd take a full-on nude shade or the usual pinks/reds any day.

Decléor Paris Aroma Cleanse Essential Cleansing Milk (10ml)
Decléor Paris Aroma Cleanse Essential Tonifying Lotion (10ml)
I've never really thought much about skincare from Decléor Paris, but this mini travel set is really cute. I'll probably pass this on to one of my friends who will actually use it though, instead of letting it sit in my stash.
Just for size comparison. ^^;;
Wait, there's more! I found a couple of vouchers hidden underneath the packing paper.
Hidden vouchers!
Hair care and facial vouchers
At the bottom of the box, there were 2 vouchers. One is an RM50 cash voucher for Centro Hair Salon, and another is a voucher for a Decléor Signature Aromaplasty Facial @ RM98.

I honestly did not expect so many items to be inside this debut Lilac Box, so it was definitely a pleasant surprise to see these goodies inside. I was especially glad to receive the RC perfumed lotion, Burberry samples and MaxFactor nail polish. The Lilac Box's claim of only providing premium brands? They've managed to meet expectations, so kudos to The Lilac Box team! :D


Now, let's see if they can exceed expectations for their next box, shall we? ;)

The box is amazingly pretty. There are many beauty boxes out there and it is becoming quite hard for users to make choices.... :(
