No~ Mivva~ No~

Why is your box so light this time? whyyy??? *sulks*

I bought the much raved about ePure mask also, how come it’s not outside the box? hmm maybe it’s inside then??

I also got a receipt which was supposedly for my mask purchase! but then kan, eh nama and total purchased tak sama je… Must have been a mix up of receipts at MIVVA… okay la i don’t mind that, wondering if the Miss A from KL who also got an ePure noticed that the customer’s name is different hahaha!

OH, my ePure really IS inside… the whole big 250ml tub of ePure.

Walao, then the rest of the contents must be so small and super light wei…

Wait, wait, let’s see first before we judge, shall we?

1. Secretleaf Argan Hydrating Cleanser

2013-10-06 19.42.49

2013-10-06 19.43.06

Here’s a swatch, and it smells pretty nice. Claims to have argan oil, aloe vera and seaweed extract, and housed in a toothpaste like tube but has a conventional cream/cleanser tube-cap which fastens and unfastens quite nicely. Secretleaf is Malaysian also (HQ at Selangor, Produced at SP).

I’m still feeling ambivalent about getting a face cleanser since I still have quite a lot left (In my bathroom is the Murad Pomegranate cleanser and H2O+ exfoliating cleanser and the too-drying Gamila that I now for body wash instead)

2013-10-06 19.43.58

Actually I felt that their Argan Oil (tried previously) was a tad bit oily so I just mixed with my Rosken body lotion to get this body butter like consistency and boy was it effective at solving the dry scaly lower limbs.

2. Unico Pearl Scar Cream RM198.80 for 15g (7g = RM92.80)

Claims to lighten freckles, scars, dark skin tone etc. This is actually pretty pricey leh although the packaging looks horrible. In face the few range of skincare/cosmetics from Unico seems pricey such as DrMarc and Euphoria.

Anyway, I’ve never tried spot treatments such as this. My face is very very far from perfect but I don’t see an immediate need for it on the face. Most probably gonna try this on on my mosquito scars on my legs that came as a result of scratching them too much.

2013-10-06 19.45.06

2013-10-06 19.45.54

It has this creamy-concealer type of consistency going on here.

2013-10-06 19.46.37

2013-10-06 19.47.33

Creamy-pasty like.

2013-10-06 19.48.51

I think it’s supposed to be used at night and not blended with the surrounding skin like this haha! Looks ghastly white as a result.

3. ONL

a) Ecopure White balance skin toner and emulsion RM89.90/120ml

b) Oceaniq 3D antiwrinkle total solution CC RM149.90/35ml

Korean products are so overpriced in Malaysia! Must go and sapu all of them when I’m in Korea. I love Korean stuff, but the samples are so small, as always.

2013-10-06 19.49.36

5. Beautymate Bird Nests and Lilium Candidum Firming Rejuvenate Nano Mask RM49.90/7pcs (RM7.2)

Wow that’s a big mouthful! this is okay for me, as always from Beautymate. One can never have too many masks.

2013-10-06 19.50.35

It could be just me but i’m just feeling that this month could have been much much better. Oh well, beauty is in the eyes of its beholder. Obviously, it isn’t me this month.

Next up: My OWN PURCHASE. The supposed-to-be-very-famous Epure Mask. Costs a whopping RM130 dun play play. I have since found out that there is Flash Sale at MIVVA going on until 13th October so I bought another one just now at RM104, as well as various sellers on Lowyat which sells this cheaper than RM130 of course (or maybe even cheaper? I didn’t check).

Lesson learnt: In Malaysia, ALWAYS check for better deals on forums etc.

2013-10-06 20.35.23

This reminds me of hair gel that a lot of boys used to use during my secondary school days.

2013-10-06 20.37.42

Lousy thing which is supposed to seal the whole tub got detached from the cap. Had to glue it back myself, no biggie.

2013-10-06 20.29.00

Preliminary usage of ePure seems favorable so far. I will update with results no matter bad or good and whether it REALLY is WORTH all the hype in the Malaysian blogger world. Quite a lot of bloggers/forum-ers sell this themselves and I also saw this on Hishop. So they must generate some publicity to sell their stuff kan…

So, for this month’s box, actually I’m most satisfied my own purchase which is the ePure. Feeling meh about the others. If anything seems exciting I’ll update in the distant future lah

=P

Image

Yay! It’s finally here! This month’s was a tad bit delayed by a week or so because September is extra-extra customized for us!

I got an email requesting for details of the refractive error readings of my eyes at about the 2nd half of august and that’s how most of us guessed that a pair of contact lens is in the house this time! I was super excited cos I thought I could try a new colored lens. Oh well~

Image

September’s theme is Glow Gizmo, although I’m not too sure whether this compilation can actually make us glow or not lah hahah! MIVVA has been using this same face model for its website/product descriptions, and although she is definitely more prettier and glowy looking, too many appearances bores me wei… Not that it’s that important lah =P I’m sure lots of people don’t notice or mind it…

Here’s an overview of the contents!

*Squeeeeeeeelsssss*

Looks like got a lot of stuff!

Image

And the product descriptions in pic since I’m lazy like that.

Image

1. Ascience Hair Products – i see big big sachets

a) Shine Therapy Range: Shampoo + Conditioner

b) Nature Smooth range: Shampoo + Conditioner

Aaah, I’ve always been attracted to Japanese products, I wonder why I’ve never picked these up. Oh yeah, cos I’m currently using the Shiseido Fuente shampoo and there are still 1 or 2 hair stuff/samples lying around waiting for me to 宠幸 them =P

I may dislike sachets, but each of this sachet seem to hold enough for at least 3-4 uses with liberal application.ImageImage

2. Beautymate Purifying and Brightening Nano Mask

Need I say more? It’s great!Image

3. IGEL Aure monthly clear contact lens x1 pair

Aiya… I thought can get the colored one…

Ok la nevermind, this is good enough, bear in mind that this is a silicon hydrogel lens that I hope is much better than the Air Optix that I’m currently wearing. If it’s that good and there are no further contraindications, I might just switch to this ^^

Image

4. Arty Professional Face color – Mania

This is a very blendable shimmery shade that shouts you-see-something-but-you-can’t-really-see-it type of coppery color. Just nice for my newly found hobby of discovering and stacking up on cosmetics.Image

5. Somang Stuffssssss

a) Danahan Bon Yeon Jin (anti wrinkle) Gift set: Toner + Emulsion

I felt it was excellent for my super dry skin! I think I’m really really starting to love korean skincare.

*note to self: must buy lots and lots when i’m in seoul in november!*

b) ONL (Today) Perfect White Sun Cream x2 sachets

On the dry side for me, could see flakes this morning even after i put on the danahan stuff. Although I’m not so sure when was it exactly last week that I exfoliated my face XD

I reckon it’s much better for oily skin types though.

c) ONL (Today) Air Bliss BB Cream x2 sachets –> will try soon!Image

A lovely view of all the Somang items.Image

Here is a cute handheld mirror that they wrapped nicely to prevent breakage. It’s very handy to carry around, my only complaint is that the mirror fell out of the handle the next day O.o!! so i’ll need to glue it back on soon.

Image

Overall, I very much liked the September box from MIVVA. Good Job. Now, excite me more in the coming months, especially DEcembER, the gift giving month! muahahahaha

It’s the first week of April and it’s time to unbox MIVVA again~

Mivva earlier announced on their facebook page that they will be rolling out newly designed boxes starting April. Felt a little sad that I wasn’t one of the lucky ones boohoohooo~~

The glossy paper used this time for the product description was really nice and classy. Announcements this time include their MIVVA Online Store launch at the end of April plus a reminder to submit blog and beautywall reviews by 20th April to be eligible to earn MIVVA points.

This time around, the box has become increasingly pamphlet heavy, plus sachet heavy *goodness me!*

Image

Product Samples include

1. B.liv by Cellnique Off with Those Heads (RM139/30ml, RM179.90/45ml) –> 3ml = RM12

Image

I’m exceptionally delighted to receive this! I’ve been using this sebum gel on & off for the 5th or 6th year dy! *gasp* I’m so old dy? Even back when they were using this ancient packaging.

A googled picture for you to see the ancient one~

This softens those irritating plugs and makes it easier to remove my blackheads. As it is, I’m very prone to blackheads on my nose and chin, tapi i’m so lazy to remove them. So this makes the job easier. What’s good about trying this product is that there is a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if takde effect within 14 days. So even if things doesn’t work out, just go claim back your money. ^^

Image

2. Beautymate Purifying and Brightening Nano Essence (RM69.90/30ml) Full Size

Previously got the toner and moisturizer from Beautymate. I should have foreseen a pattern coming. Maybe the next one will be the eye gel or face mask? XD

3. O’slee Rosehip Beauty Solution Advanced Formula III (RM59.90/100ml) –> 30ml = RM18

I never have to worry about running out of toners dy~~~ I already have the eye gel but the dispenser was defective i think >.<…

4. SF Beauty Skin 

I’ve never heard of this company but it seems to be Malaysian? Products are developed in France and manufactured in Taiwan. Their selling point seems to be by phone/online and has a one to one consultation that way. No physical shop/counter but the office is in KL. A section of the pamphlet teaches you the way to use the product whilst on the other page, the sachets are glued on. There are promotions going on in their online shop too.

Image

Image

a) Perfect Glow Sunscreen (RM125/30ML) 1 sachet of ?ml –> RM??

b) Remover Cleansing Gel (RM100/150ml) 1 sachet of ?ml –> RM??

5. SOMANG Keratin Silk Protein Hair Care

Image

Now this Korean Hair Care range really jinn gak loh…

A total of 10 sachets from them, that I don’t know whether I should be depressed because they’re sachets or happy cos they gave a total of 50ml of each product to try?

a) Hair Shampoo (RM49.90/620ml) –> 5x10ml = RM4

b) Hair Pack (RM49.90/500ml, RM79.90 for 1000ml) –> 5x10ml = RM4

6. Timeless Truth Charcoal Deep Whitening Mask RM10/pc Full Size

Will be using this after getting a ridiculous tan 2 weeks later! This is a Taiwanese company and their global website also features a walk-through of their manufacturing process. Their website also features BB creams of which reminds me of the SKIN79 packaging O.o

The Malaysian version is where you can shop for their stuff though.

Image

7. Hair chalk

They sent 2 for the Valentine’s box. UPDATE: WONDERBOX sent 2 in their Valentine’s Box. Now there are 6 different colors this time! Very dry looking hair as a result though~

Total RM117.90++ (excluding the SF products)

There was also a handful of Strip stuff including a Voucher (free armpit wax, 50% off other services on same visit), Price List of products and services, and some FAQ regarding waxing and IPL (Intense Pulsed Light).

Walao eh Strip! Open in Penang lah…

Now I got voucher also cannot use wei…

Image

 

UPDATE: STRIP IS OPENING PENANG IN JULY!!!!!! VOUCHER VALIDITY EXTENDED TO 31ST AUGUST FOR PENANG ONLY!! MUAHAHAHAHA

mivva announcement abt strip

My thoughts on this month’s box:

1. Too many sachets

2. Bring on the cosmetics la pls~

3. Voucher that I can’t use since Strip outlets are only in KL *depressed face*
