Beauty Box Review Fabulous Finds

Fabulous Finds August 2012 Edition Review

This is my first time receiving Fabulous Finds via courier and my box went Raya-ing with the courier company lol! Although the box was sent out on the 15th but due to Raya I only received my box on 26th August which is a Sunday afternoon. Do note this is not Fabulous Finds’ fault as they never delay the post out date. I blame it entirely on the long holiday.

As you might have been reading on other blogs…Fabulous Finds boxes are all packed in another corrugated box as a protection to the actual box. So don’t be surprised if you are receiving your box for the first time ya.

Use a knife to cut off the tapes around the opening of the outer box and you’d find your box securely inside with 100% perfect condition. This is something that Vanity Trove failed to do. I’m so glad Fabulous Finds take note on this although I’m aware it’s an additional cost to them. Thumbs up!

I absolutely like the box. It’s in melon pink, it’s huge and it’s well-made. I can reuse the box to store my beauty products too. But at the moment I’m not going to touch anything inside first. I like to open it once in a while to look at it.

There’s the signature ribbon, FF sticker and silver lining paper inside the box just like what we see in previous month’s box.

Let me present to you Fabulous Finds August 2012 box content! If you are already liking their July box, you’d even love this month’s box. The content is getting better as we have 2 full size item this time.

First FULL SIZE item is Skinz Infinite Youth Recall Serum 30ml worth RM59.90.

This breakthrough serum kick-starts skin cell’s self-renewal process, by activating your stem cells to reverse signs of premature ageing. Combined with patented Toco-Retin A, the serum speeds up cell regeneration and promotes collagen synthesis to combat future skin damage. Reinforced with natural sunscreen for UV protection. Use day & night for brighter, younger looking skin. 

The second FULL SIZE item is Empro Brown & Black Mascara worth RM58.80.

This specially developed dual-coloured 3D mascara is available in two classic colours: brown & black.  Anti-clump and long lasting. Smudge proof and gives lashes the extra length and curl. Easily removed with eye make-up remover.

Something for the hair. I was given Wella SP Repair Shampoo and Mask 30ml each as I have normal hair. There’s also another version for color hair which is Colour Save Shampoo & Mask.

Wella SP Repair Shampoo intensively restores damaged hair and protects against further damage while cleansing hair. It repairs and gives hair an even structure whilst ensuring an easy combability.

Wella SP Repair Mask is an intensive treatment which repairs hair up to 100% after one application. Repair Mask intensively restores damaged hair and protects hair from further damage. Provides immediate effect which can be maintained with regular use.

Then I have My Beauty Diary 2-Step Africa Hydrating Pack. Perfect for me as my skin is kinda dehydrate at times. Unlike the usual My Beauty Diary mask that I have, this new version comes with emulsion to apply on after the sheet mask.

P/S: I’m considering this as a full size item cause we get a sheet and not half sheet! LOL! Makes sense right?

My Beauty Diary 2-Step Africa Hydrating Pack is a 2 step mask pack with 
Step 1: Mango Moisturizing Mask to effectively lock in water, rejuvenating, nourishing and moisturizing skin.
Step 2: Myrtle Rejuvenating Emulsion helps to retain the moisture in skin, firming, brightening and giving radiance to the skin.

A brand which we rarely see and it’s Australian skin care brand; Jurlique. I have Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream 15ml. Can’t wait to try this.

An easily absorbed moisturizing cream for normal/combination skin that works to minimize the signs of aging and leave skin with a smooth, healthy-looking glow.

My favorite is this Olive Hand Moisturizing Cream 10ml from Olive & Tebe. A brand which is not a stranger in my blog. Why it’s my fav? It’s because I like small hand cream to put in my hand bag :). It’s hard to get hand cream sample so I was happy to see this.

Combining natural plant extracts with extra virgin olive oil produced at Simunovich Estate, New Zealand and spring water, Olive Hand Moisturising Cream will help to hydrate your skin, revitalising its appearance. Olive’s non-greasy formulation is quickly absorbed, leaving your skin feeling smooth and soft.

I went for the Jeanne Lanvin Couture fragrance launch earlier this month. So we are lucky to have a Jeanne Couture EDP 2ml vial so soon in the box.

Directly inspired by the Lanvin catwalks, the new Jeanne Couture perfume features all the fashion brilliance of the House of Lanvin. Representing a new interpretation of Jeanne Lanvin, the hit perfume launched in 2008, Jeanne Couture offers a sophisticated variation. Bolder, more sensual, this fragrance is for the self assured woman. This sparkling fruity floral scent exudes elegance. Tangy raspberry and dewy violet leaves lead to voluptuous peony and magnolia, and the woody sensuality of musk and cedarwood lends the fragrance a rounded finish.

There’s also two voucher included in the box.
1) Jurlique 50% off any facial treatment
2) Beaubelle RM10 product cash voucher

Every month Hui Ling will include a double-sided card with a short note on one side and product description on the other side. It’s simple yet easy to understand and full with info. Again, prefer this over Vanity Trove’s. Theirs is more confusing!

And a small booklet on Wella SP products.

I must say. I’m happy with the July box and I’m even happier with the August box. It’s way better than what I expected. I knew there’d be full size sooner or later but it’s already in the second box! How great is that. I like all the products included. Definitely going to use everything.
