Fun fact: The Lilac Box was created by 3 guys!
Okay the box was actually a lot prettier. It came with a lilac polka-dotted ribbon beautifully tied around the box. I took it out and of course; I can’t tie a ribbon that beautifully. :'( Packaging aside, let’s take a look at what’s inside my TheLilacBox February Edition! 🙂
First glance: The products are all premium brands (like TheLilacBox promised!). There’s a card slotted in a cute heart envelope. There’s a mix of skincare, haircare, bodycare and makeup.
1. Kerastase Resistance Shampoo (RM73 for 250ml)
I really like this. I used to go to this really luxurious (and expensive) hairstylist who used all Kerastase products. This smells good and the smell lasts in my hair. This also helps to repair my super damaged hair. So definitely a thumbs-up!
2. Kerastase Resistance Vita-Ciment Topseal (RM90 for 200ml)
Like I’ve mentioned in a previous post, this is perfect timing for a hair treatment. I’ve been getting so into fixing my damaged hair (I think it’s turning into more of an obssession.) This makes my hair super smooth and shiny! Love!
3. MaxFactor LE Nailfinity Nail Polish in Boji (price unavailable)
I was stoked to see this in my LilacBox because, 1. I LOVE nail polishes and 2. I’ve never tried MaxFactor before. But it turns out I was pretty unimpressed. This was so sheer! I had to apply 5, yes FIVE coats to achieve an opaque finish. The colour is so beautiful though. A perfect dupe is the Elianto Nail Polish in Pastel Purple.
4. Decleor Paris Aroma Cleanse Duo:
Fresh Purifying Gel (RM113 for 250ml)
Mattifying Lotion (RM159 for 400ml)
I finished both these bottles! I absolutely adore them! The Fresh Purifying Gel is a cleanser that lathers up so well. After using this, it makes your face feel squeaky clean, fresh and it’s really cooling. I use the Mattifying Lotion as a toner and it works wonders! It literally rids the shine in one swipe. This is great for oily/combo skin types. I’m definitely looking to purchase a fullsize!
5. Roberto Cavalli Perfumed Body Lotion (RM135 for 5oz)
This perfumed body lotion smells really sexy and seductive. It’s not sticky and doesn’t leave an oily residue. I would wear this instead of perfume to give a more subtle scent. I wouldn’t wear this to sleep though: the smell would be too strong for me to fall asleep. But all in all, this is a really great product.
6. Burberry Beauty Fresh Glow Primer (RM130 for 30ml)
I haven’t tried this but I’m really excited. I haven’t tried anything from Burberry before because of the.. duh, price. This is supposed to give your face a dewy finish and a radiant shine in the right areas. I’ll definitely keep you guys posted on how this goes!
This box is so luxurious because it contains all premium brands. I like everything except the MaxFactor nail polish. This box definitely exceeded its box price of RM35/box. I’m impressed by TheLilacBox February!
