Here is what I received in my December Black Box!

beauty reviews, Black Box, Black box review, Free sample boxes, nadnut, Sample boxes, singapore beauty blog, Singapore Beauty blogger, singapore lifestyle blog

Here are my top 5 favourites for this month's Black Box!

1. But, Becky Double Lifting Mask

It was my first time hearing about this brand but after reading that it's a Double Lifting Mask, I was sold! Super comfy and nice smelling! I hope Black Box continues having a mask for every month's box!

2. Darlie All Shiny White (Enamel Care)

I love small sample sizes! I brought mine to work incase I needed a brush and refresher after lunch! No more shying away from eating Saba Fish 😡

3. Nuxe Reve De Miel Hand and Nail Cream

I've been looking for a hand and nail cream for a while now! I like that this does not have a greasy after feeling. Will definitely consider buying a full size version when i've finished this!

4. VDL Lumilayer Primer and Perfecting Last Foundation SPF 25, PA++ (3 Shades)

I have heard so much about VDL from my fellow beauty bloggers but have not yet tried their products aside from the mask. This time, there are samples of both Lumilayer Primer and Perfecting Last Foundation SPF 25, PA++. I like both products and I feel that they are pretty long lasting for me. Hope to be able to try their triple bar shot soon!

5. Zappy Sampler Pack

Just a few weeks ago, I went for the Illumi Run! (will blog about it soon!), Had so much difficulty removing the paint and I was so glad that I brought my Zappy along. Zappy to the rescue!

Some of my favourites for this month's box.

beauty reviews, Black Box, Black box review, Free sample boxes, nadnut, Sample boxes, singapore beauty blog, Singapore Beauty blogger, singapore lifestyle blog

1. Cetaphic Gentle Cleanser

Not many people know this... but actually I suffer from eczema. It's mainly on my back and is extremely painful at times. I have been using Cetaphil for years. Been using the cleanser and the moisturiser to try take away some pain and also keep it moisturised. I love Cetaphil as it does not contain soup and is extremely gentle on my skin. This size is really handy. I keep it with me at all times in my bag just incase my skin is painful and I need a quick cleanse. Black Box! Pls pls pls come out with a sample version of the moisturiser!

2. Take 5ive energy

Actually I tried Take 5ive sometime ago, courtesy of my friend Smith! There are two types of Take 5ive, one to give an added brain power boost and the other a surge of energy in it's immunity drink. Both drinks do not contain sugar and come in two different flavours: Mixed Berries and Citrus.

3. Lierac MesoLift

This is a Vitamin Enriched Fondant Cream which is enriched with AHAs to help boost skin's radiance. I thought that it really help me look less fatigue. Currently am using it as a makeup base!

4. Super 3 pack Coffee Sachet

The hubby is a huge fan of White Coffee. When I first received my box, he immediately snatched the coffee sachets away from me. T.T Our personal favourites would have to be the Roasted Hazelnut flavour. It's very rich and smells heavenly!

5. Colgate Plax Fruity Fresh

I really liked this new flavour! Really different from the usual mint mouthwashes. It's a perfect size! I keep it in the office so that I can gargle right after lunch. No nasty smelly mouth after eating my favourite Saba fish anymore! I definitely want to stock up on this!

The three items that really caught my attention were the:

6. L'Oreal Elseve Extraordinary Oil

I reviewed this actually awhile back! I love the Extraordinary Oil as it helps tame my frizzy hair and also moisturises my hair ends! It doesn't leave any oily residue and isn't sticky at all! <3

7. Purer Skin Miracle Serum

I'm almost hitting 30 and as I grow older, I know the importance of skincare. I love serums as I feel it moisturises my extremely dry skin. I use this day and night and after a few days, i feel that there is a difference! I no longer feel that tight feeling on my skin anymore and i feel that my makeup is now easier to apply! I have been searching for skincare products for my dry skin and Purer Skin will definitely be one of my favourites! Pssst. It's also paraben free! <3

8. Vitalift A+ Brillage Mask

I love that Black Box always have facial masks! The VitaLift A+ Brillage Face Mask has a cocktail of active ingredients to deliver multiple benefits. I am crazy over masks! Mainly because of my skin condition. I used this yesterday and my skin definitely looked more dewy and is softer, just after 1 mask. Power!

Remember my previous blog entry? A lot of my colleagues, friends and readers signed up for Black Box and emailed me asking why didn't you guys received the boxes.

beauty reviews, Black Box, Black box review, Free sample boxes, nadnut, Sample boxes, singapore beauty blog, Singapore Beauty blogger, singapore lifestyle blog

Black Box will be yours free when you do an online survey, very simple one! Sometimes, it may go to spam, so please remember to add no-reply@edm.blackbox.sg to your safe list!

Else you might miss out on your free box!

For those, who are wondering, what's Black Box all about... It's Singapore's first unisex sampling box, which is FREE!

Not only are there products, there are also vouchers!

beauty reviews, Black Box, Black box review, Free sample boxes, nadnut, Sample boxes, singapore beauty blog, Singapore Beauty blogger, singapore lifestyle blog

I received a variety of vouchers ranging from food, services and shopping vouchers! It also comes in a pouch, which auntie nadnut adores very much. Very good to reuse!

These are the contents of the April Black Box!

Some of my favourites for this month's box:

1. Zappy Baby Wipes ($3,95 from Watsons and other leading pharmacies and supermarkets)

Easy to use. I carry it around all the time now. Great for foody moments like attacking crabs, chicken wings and prawns. Most of my colleagues who received the April Black Box gave their wipes to the mummies! But I kept mine :p Because it's so useful! Oops. Sorry mama colleagues!

2. Vanish Pink Powder Sachet (S$9 for 500g from supermarkets).

My mum is a huge fan of Vanish. Needless to say, when she saw my Black Box, she shrieked in delight and wanted to kope mine! >.< Anyway, I stood my ground. Kept mine! Bringing it to Korea, will be there for 9 days! I'm not gonna carry 9 days of clothes around! Usually I will bring washing powder when I go for long holidays as I do my laundry there. Perfect for my trip in a few weeks time! Find out more about Vanish at www.vanish.com.sg

3. Darlie Expert White (S$5.90, available at supermarkets)

I was happy to see this reappear in this Black Box. I had left the previous tube in the hubby's place and he conveniently koped and used it! Hmph. Immediately opened and used it, heh!

4. Nature Valley Oats 'n Honey (S$6.30 for a box of 12, available at all major retailers)

This was actually featured in my previous box! Was so happy to see it again! Love the taste, I love nomming on it after a workout! I actually bought a few after trying it the last time! Keep it in my bag, just incase I do not have time for dinner, just grab my bar and noms!

Sample boxes are the rage in Singapore currently. Usually filled with a great variety of samples and even full sized items, it's no wonder why most ladies (and men) take to these sample boxes.

It's a great way to try out new products at a low cost. Their motto is to encourage responsible sampling, find out if you like these items before committing to a full size item! I've received the February Black Box which is the first free unisex lifestyle sampling box in Singapore, featured in Business Times a few weeks back.

Singapore Lifestyle Blog, Singapore Beauty Blog, beauty reviews, Singapore beauty blogger,  Black Box, Sample boxes, Free sample boxes, Black box review, nadnut

The Black Box Team chooses at least five items ranging from pampering hair masks, delicious and wholesome snacks to delightful savings to personal care services and retail products to be featured in every bi-monthly box.

I love the Beauty Blender! It's very easy to use and perfect for applying my foundation. Usually the Beauty Blender costs quite a fair bit and I was surprised to receive it in the Beauty Box!

This came in really handy for my overseas trip! Did you know that Darlie was called Darkie previously? Trying out this latest Expert White range! Get your very own in most leading supermarkets and pharmacies!

Another favourite cos of the size, the Dettol body wash is one of my favourite brands! Love the scent of this natural nourishing body wash! It also comes with Natural Olive and Almond ingredients which makes it very nourishing, especially for my dry skin! The body wash is also available in major supermarkets and pharmacies.

The hubby loves the Loreal Men Expert Scrub. Honestly it's really hard to convince him to purchase products, he always complains that it might not be suitable for his troubled skin. But after trying this sample size, he went to Watsons to purchase a full sized version! He says that after using the scrub, he felt that his blackheads has significantly reduced!

LOL! The Kinohimistsu 69 Women bottle which helps to restore Women's reproductive health. *shy* Sample your very own at only S$6.90 per bottle at places like Watsons and Guardian!

Last but definitely not least, the ést.lab SunShield SPF 50. This sunscreen is not only super long lasting but also acts as a makeup base to help conceal blemishes. Kills two birds with one stone for me. They are offering a discount for Black Box users at www.esteticabeauty.com!
