My first Wonderbox arrived today!
Wonderbox is one of our Malaysian monthly surprise beauty boxes.
I discovered the Glossy Box from the UK, but too bad they dont ship elsewhere. So u can imagine how excited i got when i found out that we have our own beauty boxes

Each month these beauty box companies will send their subscribers 5 or 6 related sample size and sometimes full sized beauty related products. For example, make up, skin care and hair care.
There are a few other beauty boxes like Wonderbox such as Modbox, Vanity Box and a few more i cant recall. The cost for 1 box from Wonderbox is RM39.90 with free shipping.

When i registered with Wonderbox online, they gave me a few sets of questions about products i prefer, for example if i'd prefer matte or dewy products, if i love make up or skin care better etc.. I guess this is how they streamline what their subscribers get in their boxes. but of course we dont get alot of UK or US products in it. We get more Asian products in our surprise boxes (found out through surveying their past months beauty boxes).

I subscribed to my January Wonderbox in December and i have been waiting for it to arrive ever since, and it finally came today at my office. Note: i didnt subscribe to the 3 months or 1 year plan because i wanted to wait and see if i'm happy with the first box.

So today i'd like to do a review on my first ever beauty box, the Wonderbox.

 Bubble wrapped securely

 Love the pink ribbon, love the packaging. Although smaller than i'd thought it would be

 Comes with gift vouchers, pamphlets and an overview card

  Overview card of the beauty products inside

 The inside, decorated with fake flower petals

 1) Lipstick from Elianto. A reddish color

2) Murad exfoliating mask

 3) Ronasutra (never heard of the brand) mineral face powder and face sponge

 4) Murad face primer 

 5) Hair chalk? It says that you can use this to highlight your hair and wash it out after.

Some free flower decoration 

The packaging is quite nice i must say. Love that they added a pink ribbon to it. I do appreciate this extra touch. When u first open the box, u'll find a few pamphlets, overview card for the products featured inside the box and a RM30 gift voucher from Murad.

Overall i'm happy that there is a face primer. I've been wanting to get one.I know that Murad has great reviews for their skin products. So hopefully their primers are great too.But since i have oily skin, i sure wished they'd send me a matte instead of the dewy finish. As u know oily skin and dewy finishes dont blend. Am trying to recall what i answered/picked in the set of questions i had to fill in during the subscription.
Nevertheless, i'll give it a try and see how it goes.
  The lipstick is from Elianto. Its a red orangey color that i've yet to swatch out . I've never owned an Elianto product. Glad to receive and will test it out. You can never have too many lipsticks can you.
The Ronasutra face powder seems ok since it claims to be made from 100 percent natural minerals. And i love mineral products. I've been using the mineral foundation from Maybelline and it really does give you a better finish . So hopefully this powder gives me the same results i expect from a mineral product.
 The hair chalk i completely DISLIKE. Who would wanna highlight their hair with a chalk? Totally not going to try this out. It came in a sachet without any brand/description on it. Even in the overview card there was not a clue on which brand manufactured this hair chalks.
I also got a pomegranate exfoliating face mask from Murad. I honestly dont really use masks, but will try this since i have it. Note to self: must throw in effort to use masks weekly to improve skin condition.

And i could do without the random flower decoration. Really? 

Do i love my first Wonderbox: I LIKE it
Will i continue to subscribe: I guess i'd give them another try. Hopefully next month will get products from other brands.
