The Lilac Box 7

Assalamualaikum/ Hi ladies,

If you have followed my blog, you would know by now that i'm into beauty box/bag subscriptions and there's no denying about that. This SAHM craves for surprises, if possible every month, but budget comes to mind, so every cent needs to be considered and spent wisely.

So i heard from The Lilac Box (TLB) that they'll be coming up with their 7th beauty box, and as always i would jump into the subscription, but this time i wasn't so 'gabra' to wait for the moment to place order. I was kinda caught up with things at home and the children and all, so i only managed to place order the next day, which by the way was still available for purchase.

So after a week or so, i received the parcel. Can you believe that i just finish taking my bath and that's when the courier man arrives... adui, so unpredictable. Had to ask my little girl to tell the uncle to wait, hurried and dressed up and than signed off to receive the parcel... phew. And you know what i didn't even open the box immediately *like i normally would*, i guess after a while the excitement just dies off by it's own. Only manage to opened the box about later in the evening.

By the way this is the box, first impression not so good. Wanna know why b'coz they normally have lilac/purple ribbons or the most recent ones they have the classy silver Jimmy Choo ribbons on it (you can view it at this link TLB4). This yellow ribbon definitely did not convince me with what's inside the box. Remember first impression is always important.

First thing when i opened the box, a welcome card from TLB team.

And this is the content:-

  • L'oreal Professionel Paris Absolut Repair Cellular Shampoo (100ml)
  • L'oreal Professionel Paris Absolut Repair Cellular Conditioner (75ml)
  • Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture (sample size)
  • Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent - Brightening Hydrating Emulsion SPF 20 (15ml)
  • Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent - Intensive Brightening Serum (10ml)
  • Vagheggi Massage Oil with Yang + Anti Cellulite (10ml)
  • BeYu Lip Cream (9ml)

Both this products are a complete haircare system with exclusive home care regimens and in-salon treatments, features innovative molecular precision technology. The advanced technology behind this range allows formulas to target specific parts of hair to help deliver long-lasting results. With a range for every hair type, Série Expert provides the nourishing protection needed to achieve beautiful, healthy looking hair.

*Haven't tried this yet, as i already have my everyday shampoo but since it's small, i should be able to bring it around when i'm traveling. Anyway i don't find this as a surprise anymore, b'coz if i'm not wrong they have given L'oreal shampoo in their previous TBL. And as i remembered it was in the TLB4.

Next is BeYu Lip Cream (9ml), the intensive lip color is guaranteed to be an irresistible eye-catcher! The latest innovation in BeYu lip cosmetics combines the advantages of a lipstick with those of a lip gloss in a unique lip product.

  • It won't bleed or feather into fine lines around your mouth
  • The high concentration of pigments combines rich colour with the coverage of a lipstick
  • Lips look flawless
  • Jojoba oil derived conditioners keep lips kissably soft
The results: Stunning shine and precisely defined lips.

 ~There's no code for the color that i got, but i assume all the girls would have gotten the same color. Or maybe not, anyway do i love the color? hmmm a little, i've yet to open the packaging. In Shaa Allah will swatch and do a short review on it. But am i pleased with this? yes i am b'coz i don't think there's ever a makeup item in this box.

Than there's this little beauty Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture in sample size. La Petite Noire Couture is the most mature and grown-up perfume in the collection. It successfully merges the gourmand and the chypre to present a fragrance that is both contemporary and glamorous in an old fashioned kind of way. If the original La Petite Robe Noire was a black doll made out of chiffon and leather, this one is a silk gown with clean lines, straight edges and a bucket load of style.

The creator of this gem is Thierry Wasser. He put into this notes such as:

  • Bergamot
  • Raspberry
  • Rose
  • Oak moss
  • Vetiver
  • Patchouli
  • Tonka bean
 *I've always love receiving perfume samples, especially ones where you can just spritz. And since it's small you can just slot it in the handbag and carry it around.

Next we have  Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent - Brightening Hydrating Emulsion SPF 20 (15ml) 

This buddy is the most advanced skin care, powered by the Trans-Luminescent Complex which has the capacity to revive the skin's micro-mirrors at every layer, to reflect total luminescence.
It's unique texture glides on like a smooth caress and instantly blends into the skin for ultimate translucency, absolute even, fair skin and healthy-looking rosy luminescence.
In addition, it helps to improve the effectiveness of products applied afterwards.

Clarins White Plus Total Luminescent - Intensive Brightening Serum (10ml)

You may not believe, but this candidate can increase your skin hydration up to 103% in just one hour!
Powered by the Trans-Luminescent Complex, these delightful milky, hydrating emulsions with a fine, melting texture promote fair and dewy skin, but also radiance and well-being.
This brightening emulsion moisturizes, softens and leaves the skin velvety- smooth.

* I've not tried either of this two, but Clarins have good reputation with their skincare and i can't wait to try them on when possible. So fingers cross that in the near future i'll be doing a review on this lovely babies.

Lastly it's Vagheggi Massage Oil with Yang + Anti Cellulite (10ml)

So let's see what's the intro for this product:-

The oil is particularly suitable for unsightly skin caused by cellulite and fatty cushions. The warm sensation given to your skin is the action of the product on the skin.
Use this product daily on fatty areas, avoiding sensitive ones due to redness. Do not apply on the face.

Summary is i'm not too pleased with TLB7, everything seems predictable and it's less exciting than the other boxes previously. This make me wonder whether i should still subscribe the next TLB, but i guess it's up to our 'rezeki'. It could also be due to my sudden cray cray for cosmetics instead of skincare, but we never know. In Shaa Allah i hope they'll have better things to offer the next time around.

Guess that's all for now, till than Assalamualaikum... ^_^

Wa'alaikum mus'salam Syaza, thanks for dropping by blog. Tulah alisha pun so disappointed,xpelah nak buat macam mana rezeki kita macam ni. In Shaa Allah i hope they'll improve next round. If not in future I'll just go for their concept box. Which i find is much better than their usual ones.
