MIVVA beauty box October 2013 Edition- Snow White

Mirror mirror on my hand, who is the fairest in the land?


This month MIVVA beauty box theme is 'Snow White'. However, I do find this month content is the most bored among all these months that I have subscribed. Honestly, I do feel disappointed. Because it seem like they are just being careless of this month's items.





There are 5 items in the box. There is no special gift from MIVVA team this month unlike previous month, they don't fail to give a little surprise from themselves and not included in the product description.





Product included:
Beautymate Birdnests & Lilium Candidum Firming Rejuvenate Nano Mask (FULL SIZE)
Hydra 24 Creacked Heel Cream
Unico Pearl Scar Cream
Secretleaf Argan Hydrating Cleanser (FULL SIZE)
ONL Ecopure White Balance Skin Toner and Emulsion






Beautymate Birdnests & Lilium Candidum Firming Rejuvenate Nano Mask (FULL SIZE)
RM 49.90 for 7pcs

3rd mask from Beautymate in MIVVA box. It is very moisturizing and feel so soft after using it.





Hydra 24 Cracked Heel Cream
RM 23.90 for 50g

Lucky me that I don't have cracked heel. I will give this to whoever who wants it!





Unico Pearl Scar Cream
RM 198.80 for 15g

I am actually very happy to get this scar cream. But I don't know how to use it because there is no instruction on using it. Should it be use as skin care or make up? Because of the texture, the skin tend to become very white after using it. Kinda like foundation instead. It feel weird to use as skin care. So... I haven't use it because I don't know how to use.







Secretleaf Argan Hydrating Cleanser (FULL SIZE)
RM 21.90 for 95ml

I like this full size cleanser! I got the Secretleaf Pure Oil Series 01 in MIVVA beauty box March 2013 edition and finish the whole bottle of cleanser last month! So great to have this. This is why I like MIVVA beauty box. They seem like know what I need.





ONL Ecopure White Balance Skin Toner and Emulsion
RM 89.90 for 120 ml
ONL Oceaniq 3d Antiwrinkle Total Solution CC
RM 149.90 for 35 ml

Lastly, another Ecopure product.





This month's MIVVA box is a little disappointing. I think they need to keep it up since there is more and more other beauty box and beauty bags around. Introduce more interesting product and decrease the frequency of keep repeating same brand again and again. They lost their signature this month of giving extra gift in their box like previously. They keep advertise about the ePure Jelly Mask in their facebook but they didn't include it in this month box so it's kinda contraindicate a bit for me. They should give us try then we might buy it from their sales last week. After all, they are still my top choice of subscribing a beauty box because of the full size products included in the beauty box.

September birthday girl celebration

I celebrated my birthday with my Melaka friends on the end of September. They actually treat me and Jl as both of us are September birthday girl. Since I am craving for Korean Food so I say I wanted to eat it and they decided to go to Daorae.


Daorae is not so stingy about their side dishes. They will just top up whenever we ask for it and doesn't really count how many they gave us unlike some other restaurant. We enjoy really much. So full after having it! Thank you very much to my friends who treat us this great meal! @christine + jeslyn + lichen

Bag of Love - 'Take Me There' September Edition Review

I have always wanted to try other beauty box/ beauty bag from other source than MIVVA. I wanted to subscribed the Bag of Love for quite some time but due to the bag, I gave up for a few months. Sometimes they tend to give pink bag, I am not a pink person. So I will avoid pink as much as I can, even a lot girls love pink.







Finally in September, Mimi, the person in charge of Bag of Love, give a preview of the bag through facebook. I love the bag so much that I just skip the part she gave sneak peak of that month's product and subscribed it right away. It's just a transparent bag. But the design is just too pretty. I like how they design it like an old envelop with stamp on it.







So without much expectation, the outcome always nearly became a surprise. These are the content in the bag!






CK Eternity Aqua Women Rollerball EDP, 6ml RM 49

This is such a 'wow'! I didn't expect this. Mimi posted it few days later and I was quite surprise. This packaging is not for sale in Malaysia. I started to like the scent! So small and light that I just throw into my bag and roll it whenever I feel like using it.






Swiss line Force Vitale Aqua Vitale Cream, 50ml RM 368

I would say I love this cream so much. The scent is quite strong but I seem to have no problem with it. Te packaging is so elegant even thought it is just a sample size. Quite a large amount inside the container. I am using it right now as moisturiser and I like it.






O'slee Roseship Beauty Solution Advance Formula III, 100ml RM 59.90

I think they have change the packaging. I received one of it and the bottle is not as translucent as this one. I just use it as toner. I don't quite like the rosy smell.






Olay Regenerist Serum, 50ml RM 49.90

I like they pack the sample into tube size instead of sachet. I read somewhere before that women should start use anti-ageing product after 25 years old. I am currently 25 so I should start invest some skin care product on anti-ageing. :(








RVB Skinlab Diego Dalla Palma Cell Detoxium Purifying Clay Mask, 1 sachet RM 29.90

This remind me so much of Kiehl's Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. The difference between them is the consistency and texture. RVB Skinlab clay mask seem like more watery and light. It dry off in around 10 minutes but doesn't harden, just became dry. You don't feel the tightness on the face like Kiehl's clay mask.
I just wash it off after 10 minutes and I wet it, massage only then I wash off. Skin feel so clean after that. I can use 2 times for a sachet.






NUXE Hulle Prodigieuse Shimmer Multi-Purpose Dry Oil, 100ml RM 198

I am quite surprise with this because I didn't know about this product before. I have a friend using the one without shimmer and she says it is a good product. According to the instruction, this multi-purpose oil can be use on face, hands and legs! I am not so sure how to use it so I'll find some tutorial or review so that I can use it. But... I hate the smell so much. It smell so weird. Maybe is due to the oil






Overall, I like Bag of Love very much!! I do feel like subscribing Bag of Love instead. Even though not much full size products, but all of the sample are in tube of bottle form giving an illusion of full size product. I actually though the Swiss and Nuxe seem like a full size, or regular size due to the packaging. I don't really like sachet, however the clay mask is actually consider as a full size. Not forgetting there is perfume as well!

They have just release October sneak peak and there is a CC cream, full size and a brush!! I am in dilemma now!
