Wonder Box, November Edition

Hello Ladies,

Here is November's Wonder Box! Truth to be told, when I got October's Wonder Box I wasn't really surprised, but thought it was not bad for the price im paying. 
I decided to give November another try to see if anything changes. So here's my November's Wonder Box, let's unbox it together. :)

Like October's box, it comes with Bubble Wrap! This time they used a pink ribbon instead of Black, don't know why though.

Actually pink ribbon doesn't look that bad... looks kinda sweet. LOL enough nonsense talk let's open the box! :)

Their content card of what's inside the box, and a voucher worth RM35 for SAMPAR products.

If there's a SAMPAR voucher, there's surely SAMPAR products. I received their: 
1) SAMPAR Vivid Radiance Serum - An exceptional concentration of peptides, hibiscus, and acerola. A powerful antidote to unwanted marks of time. [RM279/30ml]
2) SAMPAR Glamour Shot - Tint-free skin care that minimizes enlarged pores and wrinkles in one minute. May also be applied at any time of the day, on top of make-up. (Yes perfect for my large pores) [RM173/30ml]
3) SAMPAR Lavish Dream Cream - A day and night cream with anti-ageing properties. It provides long lasting moisture that diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and expression lines. [RM423/50ml]

What's the wrapped up small looking thing?

Office Make Up USA! Colour Glaze Eye Shadow, an eye shadow with a smooth and pearly texture that is easy to apply. It's shiny and vibrant colours are perfect for the trendy yet sophisticated you. [RM88]

This Office Make Up USA 3D Resplendent Lip Gloss was the highlight of the November's Box. Because the public knew about this, almost 400 people subscribed to this month's box. A unique lip gloss with 3D glitter and diamond effects. Contains vitamin E to provide moisture and nourishment for your lips. These are just the samples, the actual tube is bigger. [RM68]

So what do i think of Wonder Box's November Edition? Well... I would say i prefer the November's box over the October's. Reason because I'm a make-up person. :) Although the SAMPAR products in the box are just samples, but the Eye Shadow cost RM68, and that's a full sized product. 

Would I subscribe to December's Wonder Box?
- Maybe, depending on my mood and also if i've got enough cash. :)

Rate for Wonder Box's November Edition

Price: RM39.90

Giveaway: Modbox Beauty Box!

Lately there has been quite a number of Beauty Box brands and sometimes when there's so many we don't know which one to go for. Some of them may be pretty affordable given the many products in the beauty box, but sometimes that amount of money could be used for other stuff that we NEED.

But recently I was personally contacted by Modbox themselves and due to that I got to know about them. They are super cheap! Only RM19.90 a month!!! When I first got the e-mail I expected it to be around the same price as other beauty box brands, so yeah my eyes literally widened when I saw the pricing.

Not only it's cheap, they too provide benefits for those who subscribe consistently.

You may choose your subscription, if you subscribe for 6 months you only pay RM16.50 per box!

What to expect? Well like most other Beauty Box they will provide 5 samples. The picture above is for illustration only. 

Guess what! They are giving away 3 boxes to my readers. Yay! :)

How it works
Winners will be given a code by me, and winners will have to register entering the code given to them, they will receive the December Box for FREE.

During registration you are required to include your credit card number, but they will only charge you for January's box.

Rave Party Attire

Rave Party Attire

Hey ladies, I've got an event tomorrow for Trax on Track 2012 at Sepang KL. I'll be attending the Rave Party only and was deciding on what to wear. Due to that I decided to pick and match the kind of clothing that I like and would wear to a rave party.

Unfortunately I will not be wearing what I put together here because firstly I don't own these clothes and accessories and I don't have the hot body to wear them either. Sometimes a woman can dream right? ;)

Hope you like it. :)

PS: If you see me at the party please do come and say hi! Would love to take pictures with you and share them on my blog. :)

I've been K.I.S.S.E.D by Kinerase

  • An improvement of 38% of fine wrinkles reduction after 12 weeks based from K.I.S.S trial, and it's the biggest impact of Kinerase.
  • 98% of patients reported an improvement in their overall skin condition after 12 weeks
  • 98% of patients experienced a significant reduction in photo-damage and less pigmentation within 12 weeks - a major skin aging concern particularly in tropical Asian climates
  • 75% less patients had dry skin concern after the 12-week trial

On 21st October 2012, I was invited to attend the launch of Kinerase by K.I.S.S at La Bodega, Bangsar Baru(all thanks to Tammy :)). Truth to be told, I did not expect this launch to be so well prepared with interesting small activities such as make up, painted tattoo, creative theme with the drinks and snacks, and more. Not that I look down on K.I.S.S, of course not, just expected a normal launch like other launches. 

When I arrived the first thing I saw was the registration counter as it was facing the door, the left side was the make-up, tattoo, and photo taking area; the right side was where all the products placed and people were able to test them out along with people assisting them. 

After registration I was assisted to paint my lips blue! There weren't many mirrors around so I had no idea how I looked and just went to into the photo taking session. 

We were all asked to make ourselves more BLUE since the theme was blue, I should have done my eye shadow too but was too blur at that time, didn't really know what was going on. By the way there was a best dress contest that I didn't know of! :( But even so I doubt i'll bother much about it, haha but who knows. :p

After photo taking session I decided to do a painted tattoo. How stupid of me, I should have done the tattoo first before taking the photo, but oh well was too blur. :(

Later on we were all called to the front for conference where they explained about Kinerase.

Kinetin (N6-furfuryladenine) is a naturally-ocurring bio growth factor that was discovered by scientists about 60 years ago. Kinetin is a unique ingredient that have been widely tested in the West and are popular among the women there, however it is not very well known yet in Asia. But I believe Malaysia women are going to love this product. Kinerase's mission is to help women, especially Asian women to realise that there is a way for timelessly beautiful skin. 

K.I.S.S had a 12 week trial and a total of 275 patients in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Taiwan were assessed by 30 physicians. Out of all of the products available, the Kinerase Cream that contains 0.1% kinetin was their priority. 

The results of the patients of Malaysia after 12 weeks were proven effective based on these below:
  • 97% of patients reported reduction in the severity of photo-damaged skin
  • 96% reported a reduction in skin roughness
  • 97% had a reduction in mottling/ blotchiness/ pigmentation
  • 89% witnessed a reduction in fine wrinkles
It is clear that Kinetin is an anti-aging product. But like the quote states, "prevention is better than cure". Kinerase is able to help mainly Asian women to maintain our youthful skin for the longest time possible. No doubt that we will all age eventually, but it is not impossible to look 30 when you're 50 years old. Personally, I believe that with regular exercise, healthy food intake and the use of this product, you can maintain the youth of your skin. During the Q & A session, someone asked at what age should we start using anti-aging products? The answer was between the age of 22 to 25 onward. 

If you discovered this product a little late it's no problem at all. Based on the research and trials I've stated above, it is very highly possible that you can reduce fine lines and look younger than your age. However you will have to maintain with the usage of this product. 

Ms Amy Zheng (Regional Marketing Director of Invida, Asia Pacific) said:
"While there are numerous international clinical papers on Kinetin, there were no comprehensive study measuring how well Kinetin works on Asian skin. The K.I.S.S trial was an opportunity for us to test the effectiveness of Kinerase Cream which contains 0.1% Kinetin on real patients who are looking for ways to delay and manage the effects of aging on their skin, under strict supervision.

"So far the results have been wonderful...With a non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, dye-free, and paraben free formula, Kinerase is suitable for all skin types, even skin with rosacea, and nurtures delicate skin after aesthetic procedures." 

After the conference they announced the winners for best pose, best quote, and best dressed!
Best Pose

Best Quote - Rane! Gosh I didn't recognize her till she approached me. She looks so different that day, when I first saw her I thought she was a college student.
