Time for a review on one of my favourite beauty box’s latest edition – MIVVA “BFF Sleepover Kit” November 2013 🙂
Just a day before MIVVA send out the November edition, the girls at MIVVA posted a sneak peek of the content while they were doing the usual monthly packing. I was able to roughly guessed the content although the picture wasn’t a close up shot. I saw a tube and knew that’s full size and it looked like a cleanser and I certainly can see the nail polish as well as the sheet mask clearly. I wasn’t able to figure out what’s the white and pink tube was and the brands but the content looked interesting.
The next day I checked Instagram and was a bit put off because most of the picture uploaded by subscribers who had received their box wasn’t a close shot either! Urrggghh! I returned home after work and saw my parcel on my bed. Without any delay, as fast as a lightning…I ripped through the PosLaju courier plastic for the awaited surprise. The excitement was hyped up further as mum was standing next to me eagerly waiting to find out as well 😀
This was indeed a surprise.
I like how MIVVA put a theme on their monthly box. November 2013 edition’s theme is “BFF Sleepover Kit”. The theme is basically self-explanatory so I’m not going further into the theme. The products in each box are more or less have something to do with the theme.
FULL SIZE Néula 8-In-1 Tea Tree BB Cream With Tea Tree Essence SPF30 PA+++ 30ml (Retail: RM23.90 / 30ml)
Earlier I mentioned that I sort of guessed that there are a full size cleanser tube in the box right? I was right but MIVVA sent out three types of full size product from Néula. I thought I would be getting the cleanser but I was so happy to get a BB Cream instead. Yeah I know I’m not a fan of BB Cream but since I have a lot at home, I’m slowly adapting BB Cream into my makeup regime :D. The main reason on why I dislike BB Cream is because it’s too oily for my oily skin type. This Néula BB Cream is actually oil free. Wow. First time seeing or hearing a BB Cream that are oil free! It has a lot of benefit such as anti-pimple, oil control *hallelujah!* revitalization, UV protection, anti-aging, evening skin tone, soothing and light-weight. The price is very affordable. I’m using it today for the first time. So far so good 🙂
FULL SIZE Stage Nail Color #11 Vivacious 11ml (Retail: RM35 / 11ml)
This nail color would be the second full size product in MIVVA “BFF Sleepover Kit” November 2013 Edition. The color that I received is a purple. This nail color from Stage is said to have one coat formula that dries quickly and to a glossy, salon-perfect finishing. The color suits me perfectly. As long as I don’t get a fluorescent green LOL.
FULL SIZE UGB Facial Essence Collagen Mask (Retail: RM198.80 / 8 sheets)
I have never heard or seen the brand UGB before to be honest. The mask is targeted for firming and lifting because Collagen and Natto Gum ingredient in it are infused to prevent skin roughness and exhaustion from harmful environment as well as stress. This Facial Essence Collagen mask contain Hyaluronic Acid and various botanical extracts, Witch Hazel Water and Sodium Hyaluronate as a part of it’s ingredients.
Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream 30ml (Retail: RM149 / 120ml)
I was particularly happy to see this Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream in the box! I’ve tried it before at recent Antipodes Mineral Makeup launch. There’s two type of Hand & Body Cream – Delight and Joyful. Joyful scent is described as summer berry flirts with South Pacific hibiscus flower, thus creating this unique scent of sweet with a little bit of floral scented cream. It contain avocado oil to treat dry, tired and stressed skin. The cream is quite rich in texture, so it takes a longer time for it to absorb in and the skin feels a bit tacky thereafter. A little does goes a long way 😀
The deluxe size comes in a cute, small little pump bottle as well. Also included is a RM20 Gift Voucher 😉
Here’s how the full size / retail size looks like.
ONL Dermost Moistay Cream Sachet (Retail: RM144.90 / 60ml) and ONL Dermost Moistay Fresh Gel Cream (Retail: RM144.90 / 60ml)
ONL is making another appearance again with two products. Moistay Cream is a spring water cream to balance up the oil and water level in our skin. It’s a hydrating and a calming cream which is meant for intensive moisturizing. I said before in this post that oily skin user will need something more intensive in order to balance and reduce oil secretion level. That method works well for me.
Moistay Fresh Cream Gel on the other hand contain 100% spring water in it’s base. Cream gel is usually meant for oily skin users that are afraid of tackiness on the face but at the same time needing the moisturization from a cream.
Look what makes a comeback. It’s the little gift from the MIVVA team! This time we received a bath loofah :D. In pink somemore haha. Actually it’s not what or the value of a gift that puts a smile on the face. It’s the thought that counts 😉
What I Like
Off topic but it’s the little teaser on Facebook on the box content definitely. I think that the girls are quite naughty that they snap the photo from a distance so the content is visible but I was not able to pin point directly to the exact product. The teaser was out just two days before delivery so the excitement wasn’t prolong for too long.
I certainly think MIVVA has make a comeback. Last two boxes was good but this MIVVA “BFF Sleepover Kit” November 2013 was great, with three full size item in it especially the Néula BB Cream full size. For me the products in this edition was a match to the theme.
Antipodes was a bomb too. Love the natural and organic concept 😀
What I Don’t Like
I couldn’t find anything that I don’t like about this MIVVA “BFF Sleepover Kit” November 2013 edition. The content suits me well 😀
I still think so far MIVVA is still one of the best beauty box in Malaysia. I really do salute the girls for being able to source all these wonderful brands for us to know and try such as Néula, UGB, Antipodes and ONL. I’m quite glad that there’s no repeat from other competitor box otherwise the same product will be overflowing in my room. For me MIVVA certainly did make a comeback with this box and proved that they are one of the best in the market.
I know most of you would prefer a BB Cream instead. What did you get? Cleanser or face lotion? Anyone with face lotion do let me know if it’s good for oil control 😀
