WonderBox November 2013 (Christmas Edition)

♫ 五月天 - 回來吧

It's been several months now since my last beauty box review. I haven't subscribed to any for the past few months, mainly because many didn't interest me, and I have more than enough samples and deluxe samples to last me at least a whole year. (Pssst... Time to follow my Facebook page for an upcoming giveaway! :P)
WonderBox Christmas 2013 edition
Well, WonderBox Malaysia announced not long ago that they would be temporarily stopping their monthly subscription service after the November Christmas edition and will instead be transitioning to a new subscription model, so I decided to redeem a box using my WonderPoints. I loved the Christmas 2012 edition, so I was curious to see what surprises await me in the 2013 version.

Classic black and white
I'm not sure whether it was intentional or not, but I love how this last (for now) WonderBox came with a classic black ribbon bow, just like the debut WonderBox back in October 2012. Ah, memories.

And these are the contents of the box, which include 6 full-sized products and 2 deluxe samples. Not bad at all. The Christmas edition also came with a Santa hat, which was a nice touch but honestly too small for adults. (×_×;)

Disclaimer: Christmas decorations in the photos below are my personal property and not included in the WonderBox.

L'Oreal Mademoiselle Infinium by Charlie Le Mindu (full size)
Extra strong hold professional hairspray. Patented formula for finishing a hairstyle: Extra strong, instant fixing of a section or long-lasting overall hold. Optimal shine. Anti humidity action. No residue.

I don't really use hairspray (more like never) but I appreciate that it's a full sized limited edition product.

EverSoft Whitening and Hydrating Facial Cleanser (full size)
Made with 100% mulberry extract, a powerful antioxidant ingredient rich in Vitamin C and Amino Acid that works effectively to boost, revitalize and protect skin's natural fairness. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid to preserve long-lasting hydration to moisturize and soften skin.

Another full size product! I probably won't start using this until I finish my current cleansing products, which might take a while, lol.

Essence Black Mania Carbon Black Volume Mascara (full size)
Covers every single hair with carbon black pigments for intense colour and sensational volume.
Oooh, mascara! Makeup products always make me happy, and I love Essence products, so this is definitely a thumbs-up from me.

Bio-Essence Nourishing Foamy Cleanser with ATP & Royal Jelly (30g small full size)
Bio-Essence Face Lifting Cream with ATP & Royal Jelly (10g)
Bio-Essence Radiant Youth Essence with ATP & Royal Jelly (5ml)
Enriched with Royal Jelly and ATP, the Shape V Face series has double the effects to supply and communicate energy to skin cells like a continuous current, improving micro-circulation to renew and repair skin. Helps restore skin suppleness, radiance and firmness to achieve a youthful V-shaped facial contour.

I'm not a big fan of Bio-Essence products, so while the trio seems pretty good, I don't think I'll be using it.

Beautymate Black Pearl & Calendula mask sheet (full size - 2 pcs)
Tahitian Pearl contains minerals to improve skin appearance, and penetrate deep into skin to repair damaged skin and lighten pigmentation. Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract nourishes skin, regulates skin condition, maintains skin elasticity, clam, soften and soothe skin. 

This is definitely one of my favourite items from the box. The masks sheet(s) were underneath the other products, so I was pleasantly surprised to see not one, but two sheets of this Beautymate mask. (⌒▽⌒)☆

Merry (early) Christmas!
Not sure if it's because I haven't gotten any beauty boxes for a while, but I'm quite satisfied with the products in the November 2013 Christmas edition WonderBox. With more than half of the products being full-sized, it's definitely value for money, and would make a great Christmas gift too!

In the meantime, do 'like' my Facebook page as I'm preparing a really awesome giveaway for December! (◕‿◕✿) Hint: It's a beauty box too! ;)

It is confirmed that you haven't bought any beauty box recently so you are satisfied LOL.

Quite disappointed to see the same Bio-Essence trio in the box. I got the same trio in October box *facepalm*
