Cosmobox Nov'12

Received my very first beauty box, the "Cosmobox" by Box Couture today! :D

Cosmobox by Box Couture is supposed to be the Malaysia's "luxury beauty box" subscription, much like the ones available in the US... which I often watch beauty gurus on Youtube reviewing/raving about. I happened to see Box Couture's FB ad and decided to give it a try. :) 

According to their FB page, "Cosmobox by Box Culture brings you the best in premium beauty products. The most convenient way to discover new grooming and beauty products curated by beauty enthusiasts, delivered to your door step monthly."

It's RM33 per month (inclusive of shipping) in subscriptions of 3, 6, or 12 months. Since there was no one month subscription option, I signed up for the 3 months subscription... just to see if this is something I would actually like and benefit from. The idea is that every month, you'll receive a Cosmobox with 5-6 miniatures/sample size beauty products from various brands to try. Each month's items are a surprise so you don't know what you will be receiving.

I like the idea of receiving product samples to try out before I splurge on the full size product... but I don't know if it's something I'd find worth paying RM33 per month for. I guess it'll depend on what other brands are going to be featured in the boxes in the next few months. Will see how it goes after the first 3 months. :)

A note about the packaging. Since the box is shipped via GDex, there's no worries about receiving a damaged/crumpled box (plus point for me). The white box itself is extremely sturdy and very good quality. Something I'll definitely keep to store my other stuff in. The Cosmobox logo is embossed on top of the white box.

First thing that greets you when you unravel the black ribbon is an welcome card (message in front, item details at the back) and a black envelope with some product brochures.

Peel back the pink wrapping to reveal this month's products. I sorta knew what brands were going into this month's box (they revealed clues on the FB page) but had no idea what the products would be. Was pleasantly surprised. All things that I would like to try. :)

Since I forgot to take a pic of the item descriptions on the back of the welcome card, I'll post the details beneath each product pic.


System Professional | Smoothen Shampoo - A soothing hair cleanser with Active Cashmere Complex controls and cares for unruly and coarse hair giving it delightful suppleness while providing anti-frizz protection. (250ml/RM65)

System Professional | Smoothen Mask - An intensive treatment for coarse hair that detangles, calms and controls the hair structure giving it a luxurious suppleness. (200ml/RM100)


ELIE SAAB | Le Parfum, Eau de Toilette - An ethereal fragrance of evanescent orange blossom mingled with a soft, subtle rose honey. An offering of the freshness of the mandarin tree blossom, the round sensuality of the gardenia and the sparkling vibrancy of vetiver.
30ml/ RM180
50ml/ RM278
90ml/ RM378


Revlon | Photoready 3D Volume Mascara - A revolutionary mascara designed to give you glamorous, expressive, big volume lashes from every angle. The unique reflecting formula also help lashes look magnified and multiplied. (Full size/ RM39)
YEAP. The Revlon mascara is a FULL SIZE mascara. Woot woot. :D


Origins | Check and BalancesFrothy Face Wash - A gentle and clever face cleanser that carefully does both jobs by discouraging excess oil production and protecting dry prone zones. (150ml/ RM93)
I'm actually excited to try this...heard many good reviews about Origins products but never had the time to go check them out.

The Nail Shop | 6-Way File and Buffer - The perfect way to create beautifully shaped and highly polished nails. (Full-size/ RM9.90)

There were two vouchers/coupons that came along with the products. One for a free Origins stress relieving Mini Facial and the other to purchase the ELIE SAAB Le Parfum Christmas Set 2012 at a special price.

First impression of the Cosmobox? Not bad at all. :) Can't wait to see what's in store for Dec 2012 and Jan 2013...
