Finally! My Saladbox is Here! September + October Goodies in One Box!

Way back in September, the Salad Box team emailed me about the very first launch of beauty subscription box in the Philippines. I was so happy when I learned this because beauty subscription boxes are a big hit in the US especially with vloggers. The Saladbox team promised me a press sample for the month of September 2012. I tweeted them last Tuesdsay or Monday that I have not receive my Saladbox. It was only yesterday that I got mine and guess what? They placed a bit of September and October Saladbox goodies in my box!   Amazing, right? All in all I got 9 items in this cute, sturdy mint box! Thank you so much Saladbox. I did not know that it will be that fast!

SaladBox Philippines is the first beauty and lifestyle box subscription service.
For just PhP500.00 per month, a subscriber will receive a box filled with four or more beauty and lifestyle product samples. The SaladBox team greatly values the money their subscribers spend so these products will have a value of more than PhP700.00. SaladBox is currently in partnership with a lot of beauty and lifestyle brands, both local and international, up-and-coming and timeless classics.

So, what is inside the box?
Black Beauty Gold Shampoo Samples - 2 pcs.
Hotshop Pour Femme - Happy Full Size -400 pesos. This is available at the Saladbox Shop
Natura Cosmetics Gorgeous! Argan Lip and Cheek Stick - Full Size 150 pesos
Sakura Hand Foam Sanitizer - Full Size 90 pesos
Camaru Naturals Bamboo Charcoal Clarifying Soap - 150 pesos
BC Fragrance Pillow Mist in Relaxing Mint - Travel Size 150 pesos
Virginia Olsen Minerals Sample Eyeshadows in Lodo and Solar Flare - 150 pesos (travel size)

I was super thrilled when I opened my box filled with these beauty goodies. Who would not be? The first two products that caught my eyes were the Virginia Olsen Minerals Eyeshadow Pigments and the Natura Cosmetics Gorgeous! Argan Lip amd Cheek Stick.  Here are the swatches:
Lodo and Solar Flare

The weird thing is the shade written on the lid of Solar Flare says Baby Roses. I do not see any baby roses in this shade, do you? You can check the second photo for reference. I just assumed that this shade was Solar Flare because this was the color some bloggers got. 
Lodo - Shimmery gray with loads of silver iridiscence
Solar Flare - Matte Medium Orange
 Natura Cosmetics Gorgeous! Argan Lip amd Cheek Stick - I do not know if this one has a shade or no. because I did not see any reference on the packaging. I saw some bloggers featured this and theirs was reddish or orange in tone. The one that I got was a rich rosey berry shade. It reminds me a lot of my Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Raspberry.

The pictures say it all. :)
 Natura Cosmetics Gorgeous! Argan Lip amd Cheek Stick on my lips.
I immediately placed it my bag. This is very pigmented. I need not put any lip liner to cover my dark lip lines.
However when I tried applying it on my cheeks, this product was very hard to blend. :(
If you love surprises and beauty products, Saladbox is definitely worth a try. I hope they will continue placing makeup products in every box. I am quite hesitant in trying skin care products like the soap because my skin is very sensitive and breaks out easily.

Godbless everyone!

  2. that's a very pigmented lip and cheek stain! but it seems hard to blend nga sa cheeks, judging from the formulation and the photos.. anyway, that's nice that they put action agad on your late saladbox haha :)
