Mivva Box May 2013 Edition

♫ Singer - Song title

Remember the introduction to Mivva Box I did a while back? Well, it's finally time for me to review my first ever (official) Mivva Box! :D I had previously won a Mivva Box from a giveaway, but did not review it as it was already a backdated box by the time I received it. >_<

Love the new box design! :)
Earlier this month, I received the May 2013 Mivva Box to review, which is also a special edition for Mother's Day. :) Naturally, the items inside the box are curated to suit the Mother's Day theme.

I love how the info card had a really sweet and meaningful quote on the front. 世上只有妈妈好~

A very thoughtful card and pretty tea cup was the first thing that I saw in the box. My mum is a great fan of roses (as am I) so it was perfect for her. 。◕‿◕。

Here's a quick glance at the beauty/skincare items in the May 2013 Mivva Box:
Mivva Box May 2013 edition
Aupres Ultimate White Extra Intensive Spot Serum (travel size)
Aupres Aqua Active Sleeping Mask (travel size)
I tried the sleeping mask overnight, and it seems to work quite well to keep my skin moisturized all night, but the spot serum made me experience some minor breakouts after using. >_<

Garden of Eden Jojo E Serum (5ml)
This serum contains 100% natural concentrates and essential oils, and helps to improve skin elasticity, lighten stretch marks and hydrate dry and itchy skin.

Nature's Lab Antioxidant Body Scrub
I very rarely use body scrubs, so I can't say how well this product works, but winning the Harper's Bazaar 2011 Best Body Scrub award has got to count for something, right? :D Gonna try this out soon.

O'slee Rosehip Hydra-White Cleansing Powder (30g)
This is one of the products I'm most eager to try, because it's rose-scented and a cleanser in powder form. My first ever (proper) cleansing product was also a powder cleanser, so you can say this product brings back some good memories. :P

Somang Danahan RGII Premium Ex Deep Wrinkle Line Cream (sample sachet x3)
"This botox-like cream is a double functional cream for whitening and deep wrinkles." Definitely a product for ladies with aging skin concerns. (¬‿¬)

Claire Organics Handmade Soap - Guinness Stout 
Claire handmade soaps are made using fresh and natural high-quality ingredients so it is gentle on skin. They have various 'flavours' of soap, including mulberry yoghurt, aloe vera shea butter, evening primrose, etc. This Guinness Stout soap has revitalising and anti-acne properties. :)

I'm pretty pleased with the contents of this May 2013 Mivva Box. Most, if not all, the items inside are great for mums and daughters alike, as well as introduced us to some new brands and products. The card and tea cup were a nice touch to highlight the special occasion.

You can subscribe to a Mivva Box for RM38 per month (they also have 3 months/6 months subscription), and you can check out their latest updates on the Mivva Facebook page.

I'm amazed at how that pretty tea cup arrived in mint condition! It's made from clay/ceramic/one of those breakable materials right?

Mivva comes with the cutest lifestyle extras. Last month was the doggie towel and now a tea cup? I need to be a subscriber!!

Angie: I have yet to try it since I want to finish up some The Body Shop items. XD Not sure if I'll do review on the body scrub though, but I'll let you know my thoughts on it after I try it. :D

Sakuranko: Aww thank you dear! :)

Blair: Yup, the tea cup is cute! :3 They packed the boxes really well so none of the items were damaged. I'm still on the fence about Mivva, although I'm sorely tempted to get the June box because the teaser is so colourful and appealing! (Colours, cosmetics, w00ts!)
