Modbox October

By Cynthia Lee (Guest Blogger)

Compact, fuss-free and economical.
These are the 3 words I can perfectly describe my October Modbox.
Filled to the brim, minimal la-la-la decorative paper and for RM9.00 only. ;)
Isn't that straight to the point enough? Just like how I expect those officers at work to go straight to the point when presenting their sales pitch. =P

My October pick

For the October sample selection, there's a total of 7 items for selection. You are to pick 3 for your box at RM9.00. Besides Ronasutra which is a brought-forward item from the previous month, all other brands are newly introduced ones. I actually don't mind if there's a repeat of Ronasutra 2-in-1 Mineral Foundation and Powder because it's such a great product that if you have gotten a wrong shade for the first time, you can try to get the right shade for the next box. ;)

I just realized that for products that come in different scents or shades, you are able to choose your desired one via the scroll down tab provided. By doing so, you are sure to get what you want and not a random scent or shade that is not of your liking. ;)
Pick your scents or shades here!

So let's see what's my pick for this edition. :)

The highly raved about Dermedex that I see every other beauty bloggers crooning about. :)
I only managed to try out the cleanser which is a non-foamy, herbs-scented based cleanser. It is also minty and leave the skin feeling cleansed and supple (seriously!) despite the non-foamy base.

The cleanser in the old-school tube. =)

It promises a clearer skin in just 3 days. You up for it?

Since I am trying out the Dermedex Cleanser, I though I might as well finish it up with the Murad Resurgence Hydrating Toner as part of the cleanse and tone facial regime. =D
If my sense of smells is not extraordinarily off the radar, this one gives a slight fruity element without being too sweet. Just a mild fruity elements, like a concoction of papaya and the sort.
The 15ml bottle that you get in Modbox is sufficient enough for you to try for more than a week to see if this is going to be your next favourite toner. Contained in a spray bottle, this is brilliant for girls on-the-go for that spritz of hydration whenever there is a need to freshen up. The product uses the Murad's formula under the Science of Cellular Water (TM), Murad’s proprietary system for optimising cell hydration and skin health. I feel hydrated already! 

I give this a 5 star for hydration and convenient packaging!

Fans of body moisturiser, here's another interesting range for you to try out! For the Modbox edition, it comes in a set of 3 - the Kneipp Body Range.
There's Kneipp Almond Blossom  Body Lotion, Eucalyptus Herbal Bath and Lavender Body Oil. For you sachet haters, sorry to inform but all of this comes in sachet. It's still an interesting discovery though.
A must try!

I love oil! For no particular reason. I always assumed that body oil have much more benefits and can provide longer lasting hydration compared to lotion since it's oily and thereafter sticky. =P
As the Lavender Body Oil comes in a sachet which is pretty hard to try out, and yet I don't want to waste a single drip, I poured it all into a contact lens bottle, haha! 8ml of pure lavender oil!
The oil absorbs quickly and leaves no greasy stain after. Great to apply before bunking in to sleep for that soothing and calming effect from the mild lavender scent while getting your skin hydrated.

8ml of good oil!

A solution to those who faces hair-fall issues. The Human Nature range of Strengthening Shampoo with Cream Foam claim to be able strengthen hair to reduce breakage and hair fall by an astounding 80%. I got one in Aloe and it smells like a concoction of Aloe, cucumber and all things vegan! =D
The 50ml trial bottle would most probably last you 3-5 washes depending on your hair length. Since I have just gotten my dip-dye colored hair, won't be using this as yet. Am working towards all sorts of shampoo that can extend the period of my hair colour for now. =P

Derived from 96% of natural ingredients!

The last product to introduce is the Lavera Hand Cream - a certified, natural vegan-friendly hand cream! As more and more people are going against cruelty to animals, this is definitely something that you can use without qualms. Made without animal based ingredients and not tested on animals itself, it contains organic almond and shea butter. Since this is almost pure organic, do not expect any form of chemically infused fruity or sweet 'scentsation'. It's all in natural form, remember? ;)
Main ingredients among which are water (hence you need to shake well before use), shea butter and soybean. Works great to nourish those cracked heels and elbows.

Any of the items above have pique your interest? Well, for RM9.00 only not inclusive of delivery, the Modbox is definitely worthy to try out. What have you got to lose but to get a box full of skincare to try out or even to giveaway if it doesn't suit you. 
Being on a budget and need to get some gifts for friends? You know what... This is a great gifting idea too, you know! ;)


Happy Shopping!!
