Cosmobox by Box Culture - Christmas edition

| On
29 December 2012
Not sure I'm going to rant or describe the beauty box that I received RIGHT after Christmas, I was anxiously waiting for my beauty over the week then quite unsatisfied with the delivery process because it was supposed to be at my doorstep before Christmas .__.




Anyway, I am really happy with the packaging. Although the box is somehow smaller than FF but still, it has my vote on the design =) The whole box is only costs RM 33.

The content was tied up with a pretty black bow with Cosmobox letter in it, it was so neat and tidy it made me ever more excited!

until I opened the box,

The brands featured in this box

Cosmobox December 'Christmas' edition box
The whole content is not what I've expected with all the hype going on their Facebook, saying that we would get premium brands especially for this Christmas season. It's not that these samples are not good, they are actually good but it somehow lack of something like CHRISTMAS HYPE, most consumers complain that there are NO actual size product in this edition. Well if one of these brands come with a actual size product, I would not mind at all.

The Brands

Yadah Vitamin Toner (80ml/RM49): Enriched with organic Opuntia Ficus (cactus) to soothe and hydrate the skin. Formulated with orange and lemon extracts with vitamins to help refresh, tone and brighten skin.

My thoughts of this box
Generally, this box did not match with my expectation. I expected that it will feature brands from makeup, skincare, hair and perfume. How I wish that Box Culture could let the consumers to try on exclusive perfume sample, such as Chloe, Versace, Marc Jacobs DOT, etc. Moreover, Box Culture prepared different sets of boxes for different readers. My box is just one version from the editions, some consumers received soap bar, Inglot nail polish and others. I do not think that the consumers will be happy about it because there is not standardization and the value of the box might be different than the others. Many consumers are complaining their unpleasant surprise on Box Culture Facebook page, I guess it was a wrong move for them and it's Christmas! However, I hope Box Culture would do better in their future boxes because they are NOT that bad compared with other beauty boxes available in Malaysia. I still have hope on Box Culture so yeaaaah, keep up the good work!
