Unboxing : December Lola Box (Best Year Ever)8:50:00 PM
Happy Monday, my dears! Anyone suffering from Monday blues? Apparently i can still suffer from Monday blues even though i am no longer at school or even work! Probably been having too much fun on the weekend, i am feeling very very tired (yeah, stupid cough still lingering stubbornly pfffttt) and sluggish. A little gloomy as well, even though i also dunno why (oh, i do know. What else but stupid PMS. PFFFFTTTT. Need to go to hot yoga class tomorrow and get some dose of endorphin bursts!) zzzz. But i feel better whenever i see pretty things *hahahaha, sounds like a proper beauty junkie already zzz* and get nice things on the mail! And Lola Box December Box certainly is one of those happiness-inducing things!
|What's inside my December Lola Box. Did you spot one particular product that sent my heart aflutter?|
It arrived sometime late on Saturday (and i only got my hands on them the next day), and i took the pictures last night while i'm already very tired, not a very good idea-ended up with quite a few blur pictures without me even realizing it zzzz...
|Good thinking Lola, for wrapping the box with extra plastic to make sure it'd arrive safe and dry in this super rainy season! I received quite a few parcels soaking wet and sad-looking!|
|Their theme of the month : Best Year Ever (well, considering they only started this year, it gotta be! Haha)|
|This month's box' a plain white (snoozeville...) box with the cheerful writing. If i can be completely honest, the cute writings seems out of place on top of such a plain background. a far cry from their festive looking November box, but what's inside more than made up for the plain Jane outer hehe|
|The list of products featured this month, i took a glimpse before actually unwrapping the contents and of course the last product caught my eyes immediately!|
|First up : Kenzo Flower in the Air (vial)|
By risking to be an ungrateful B, i must stress once again that i have mixed feelings about perfume samples. It annoys me almost as much as sachet samples TBH. LOL. I mean... it's enough for one time usage only, and (at least overseas) you can get it for free at the counters. At the same time i do enjoy being able to try out various perfumes (at least with perfume you don't need to try it multiple times to know if it works or if you like it or not). And i am quite fond of Kenzo, their original Flower perfume's one of my first perfume ever and remain my all-time-favorite perfume until today.
|Tansan Sparkling Gelee by One Piece Hair Studio (no indication on how much product this contains, but it's quite tiny, slightly taller than my chubby middle finger)|
Actually you can call your products anything with gelee on it, i'd start raving. LOL. I dunno, the word gellee totally works for me :p. This is actually a jelly (even spelt like this also makes me happy! I guess i'm a jelly-maniac?) hair vitamin that uniquely claims to work as moisturizer for scalp, hair and skin! So weird yet intriguing!
|Astalift Moisturizing Mask (worth IDR 145.000/pack. No indication if this product's one pack or not though)|
My second favorite item in this box. Am a huge fan of sheet masks, and knowing that this comes from a high end (read : very expensive) brand only makes it better (i mean, you feel like you're getting more than your money's worth this way :p).
|Sigma Eyeliner Brush (worth IDR 132.000/piece)|
This could me my other favorite product, except that i don't really use eyeliner brushes *___*. That's my problem and not Lola Box' of course (it comes to personal taste and not any fault of the box). I'd be happier if they gave out lip/concealer brush instead (in terms of size, it should be pretty similar, right?). It's my first Sigma brush and i heard nothing but great things from this brand, too bad it's in a form of something i don't really use (i have no interests in gel liner, i am happy with my liquid and pencil ones). So unless one of the beauty boxes i'm subscribed to feature a gel eyeliner in their box in the future, i might try to get a new home for this brush.
|Dr. Jart V7 BB (again, no indication of how much product's inside the tube, but it looks like a pretty decent size-like normal travel size BB cream) + Turnover Booster Renewal Serum & Vita Laser)|
My other fave product in this box! Been intrigued by Dr. Jart brand and been wanting to try out their BB cream (which BB cream that doesn't interest me anyway? None so far...) so i am happy to receive this. And even happier that they threw in three sachets and call it Must Try-Extras and count them all as one sample. Lola Box never fails to impress me, they really listened to their members criticism and suggestion! You know i whined over and over again about sachet samples-they should never be counted as one sample unless you give out like a mountain of them all (like, you, 5 or 10 could be counted as one, i still wouldn't be happy of course!) and Lola Box' treating them like how they are supposed to be now, as extras. Kudos Lola Box!
|Anna Sui Nail Polish in 902 (full size, worth IDR 150.000)|
The last and favorite product out of the entire box! I remember seeing Lola Box sending hints about possibilities of getting Anna Sui polishes for some lucky members, i assumed it was on the ballot, so i am very very happy to see one being featured on the box! I love Anna Sui a LOT so if you put anything from then inside a box, it'd be sure to make my day! Never mind that the shade i got reminds me so much of my Nature Republic Manicure Color Waltz GR 605 Lime Green (at least it's got shimmer on them so it's not that similar), i am just super happy to get a new Anna Sui nail polishhh (i only have one other Anna Sui polish in very bold red color and i used it so so much, one of my most over used polish ever, i got so bored of them)!
In short, i love love love December Lola Box! Especially the nail polish! How can i not, the polish alone more than covers their box' price (which is IDR 135.000 because i subscribed to their three months plan, montly box' IDR 145.000), so it's super value for money! I think Lola Box only improved with time, and i sure am happy that i decided to renew my subscription!
