November WonderBox & Giveaway!

♫ DBSK & JYJ playlist

Whoa! Is it time for the November WonderBox already? o_o

First of all, I must apologize for the lack of posts last week. This was due to an unforeseen case of severe food poisoning, and I have been taking the time to recover before coming back to blogging. >_<

For November, they had 2 types (pink ribbon and black ribbon). And this time, I received the pink-ribboned WonderBox!

The baby pink satin ribbon is a nice change from the usual black one, although I still think the black one goes better with the box. ^^;;

Upon opening the box, you will see a greeting card, which opens up to show the products included in the box.

There is a RM35 off voucher for Sampar products.

Take a look at the contents of the November WonderBox! This time around, they included 2 makeup items and 3 skincare products.

SAMPAR Lavish Dream Cream (sample size - 2.5ml)
A day and night cream with anti-ageing properties. It provides long-lasting moisturization that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and expression lines.

SAMPAR Glamour Shot (sample size - 2.5ml)
Tint-free skin care that minimizes enlarged pores and wrinkles in one minute. May also be applied at any time of day, on top of make-up. 

SAMPAR Vivid Radiance Serum (sample size - 2.5ml)
An exceptional concentration of peptides, hibiscus and acerola. A powerful antidote to the unwanted marks of time.

I was really glad to see the SAMPAR samples in this month's WonderBox, because I had tested out some of their products before and they work really well at targeting skin concerns. Even though the sample size is pretty small, the amount is sufficient to use before deciding whether to purchase the full-sized ones, as it is on the pricey side.

You can check out my review of the SAMPAR Ultra Hydrating Fluid here. :)

Office Makeup USA Hydra Radiance Lip Gloss Mini Combo
(The welcome card lists "3D Replendent Lip Gloss", but I obtained the correct item name from their Facebook page)
This is definitely my favourite item out of the 5! The mini lip glosses come in 4 easy-to-wear colours, and are packaged in a tin box with green embossed snakeskin design. They are really cute and so handy to pop into a clutch or handbag for touch-ups! :D

The last item is an eyeshadow compact, also from Office Makeup USA, but when I opened it up, it was completely shattered to pieces in the pan! >_< Such a pity, because the green is a really beautiful and pigmented shade. Looks like I'll just have to scrape it into a small jar and use it as loose pigment eyeshadow. ^^;;

However, when I reported the damage to the WonderBox team that very same day, they were kind enough to offer me a replacement box, which arrived 2 days later. Talk about fast!

My replacement WonderBox was the other type, the one with the black ribbon. I was curious to see how it differed from the pink ribbon one, so....

There is an extra Jurlique voucher in addition to the SAMPAR voucher, and....

...the contents are the same, except that the Office Makeup USA eyeshadow is substituted with a Jurlique day cream. The other 4 items are the same.

Jurlique Moisture Replenishing Day Cream (deluxe sample - 15ml)
A rich moisturizing cream with a powerful combination of emollients that helps to deeply hydrate, restore suppleness and protect against environmental aggressions.

I have not tried Jurlique products before, but I have heard that they are really good, so I can't wait to use this and see for myself if it's true. :D

And now for the good part:


Thanks to WonderBox sending me a replacement box, I now have an extra box to give away to one of my lovely readers. Since Christmas is near, it's only fair to share the cheer, right?! :D
