Black Box July Edition

Hello people! This entry is long overdue but better late than never! These are the products I received from Black Box July Edition.

Opening a Black Box is always a joy! So many products! Black Box is not just a beauty box, it also features lifestyle products like toothpaste, energy drink and coffee sachets. I think what's best about sample boxes like Black Box is how I get to sample the products before purchasing them in full-size. This way, I save up on products which might not be suitable for me, and also try out new recommended products that I might not have noticed before. Plus, the excitement of opening the box, like receiving gifts every bi-monthly!

Besides products, there are also many vouchers per box for other services and promotions. Awesome!

Here are 3 items found in the Blackbox that I would like to elaborate on.

I tested the L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil, and I like how it really makes my hair texture softer and smoother, without being greasy! The oil feels light and it's so easy to use too.

Retails in supermarkets, pharmacies, and departmental stores island-wide at $23.90 for 100ml.

My favourite product in the box is the Purer Skin Miracle Serum. I applied 5 drops of the serum and spread evenly over my entire face and it visibly rejuvenates my skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles! My skin also looked more radiant! Needless to say, I felt more confident that day! The next day I met up with Ben and Isaac for dinner and they commented that my complexion got better! I didn't even used the serum that morning! Anyway, I could really see the result, so I think I'd use this quite regularly. The texture is super light and not greasy too!

Super worth it, $61.90 for 30ml at www.PurerSkin.com and the following selected Watsons store. I would love to try out the other products in the same range too!

Made of nano-sized organic fibres, VitaLift A+ Brillage Face Mask is soaked in a cocktail of active ingredients to deliver multiple benefits to the skin. The sheet is thicker than usual and I could feel the richness of the mask when I place it over my face.
