WONDERBOX: March 2013 Review!

Hi guys! It’s Wonderbox March 2013 time! I know my beauty box posts are always later than other bloggers. I like to do an in-depth review on all the products inside the box (after trying them for a few days) and really give my honest opinion on the whole box. So I received my Wonderbox about a week ago and had the chance to try everything.
This month’s box came with the usual info card that tells you a little about all the products in your box. It also comes with an RM30 Murad Voucher (what does this tell you?) 
Some people were kinda bummed to see more Murad products, but I for one was so happy!! I have fallen in LOVE with Murad products so I really don’t mind. 
1. Murad Active Radiance Serum (RM398/30ml)
Oh my Goly. This must be made of Gold. haha. I can’t really say much about a serum because I really hate them (sorry!). I gave this to my Mum and she wanted to buy a full-size until she saw the price. HAHA! But she did say it was a really nice consistency though.
2. Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture (RM298/50ml)
I tried this moisturiser out for 3 days. I only use this at night now because it gives me a shiny face. That’s not a bad thing if you have dry skin but I have combo skin and it makes me look like a disco ball. It does wonders at moisturising though! It has a very unique consistency -kind of between creamy and watery. Absolutely an amazing product!
3. Murad Oil-free Sunscreen (RM170/50ml)
Absolutely love love love this sunscreen mainly because of the smell! This smells like a lemon… tart? It smells very familiar with the lemon-y scent but I cannot put my finger on it! It smells awesome and it applies easily too. I love that it comes in a pretty decent size bottle too! This sunscreen doesn’t leave a white cast on my face after applied. Yumyum! (dont eat it!)
4. Wild Ferns New Zealand Manuka Honey Hand Creme (RM42.30/85ml)
This smells delicious! I am kind of obsessed with the smell of baby powder and also obsessed with drinking honey. And this baby right here?! Smells like baby powder combined with honey! This makes me want to use it every single day and it also helps that it is such a moisturising product. I apply this every night before bed and wake up with soft, smooth hands!
5. Elianto Lustro Lip Gloss (RM13)
A lot of people were confused with this because it’s so small that it’s often mistaken as a sample size. I know that it’s not though because I have one of these lip glosses that I bought in my collection. I like the smell of these lip glosses; they smell like candies! It is a pretty sticky gloss though, so if you don’t like that, this is definitely not the way to go. But I love the colour payoff, I love the formula and I love the smell. So to me, this is definitely a thumbs up.
Final thoughts
I was excited to see more Murad products but 3 out of 5 is a little excessive. The sample sizes were also a little bit small. But I love all the products in this month’s box because they work for me. The Murad sunscreen and the Wild Ferns hand cream ties for my favourite product in this box. My least favourite product is the serum (but thats just because i despise them, lol).
Wonderbox has received a lot of complaints and feedbacks about how there were too many Murad products and also that the samples were very small. I like the fact that they took into account their customers’ satisfaction and offered a partial/full refund for anyone who wants it. I think they are one of the boxes with the best customer service and they have definitely jumped to the top of my list because of the way they handled the situation.
Can’t wait to see what’s in store for us in the April boxes! ๐Ÿ˜€
