Review: Mivva August Box, Flower Power!

Holla dearies! It's nearing the end of Merdeka and our country has just celebrated it's 56th birthday! Did any of you went out to paint the town red? I did, and it was awesome!

Nearing the end of a month, we will be welcoming a new month tomorrow, and we all know what a new month signifies. New beauty boxes! But before that, let me show you what I got for Mivva's August box :)

The theme of the month was Flower Power where everything curated in the box is related!!! Looking at the contents of the box, I wouldn't say EVERYTHING is flower related, but at least three of the products were :)

Seen anything you like in this month's box?

 F-Cup Cookies

First up we have F-Cup Cookies :D F-Cup Cookies is an innovative product from Japan that offers natural breast enhancement with essential amino acids. It has sold over 4.5 million boxes in Japan! The brand ensures the safety development of the products through close cooperation with manufacturers. I've got 1 Soymilk flavor stick and 1 Chocolate flavor stick. There's also an RM 20 voucher included in the box so you can buy your preferred flavor at a discounted price after trying the taste.

F-Cup Cookies  is not a new brand to me as I have heard of them before, cos they used to be my client. Tried them and I would say the taste is something that goes more a long the lines of having an acquired taste :p

Dermedex Challenge Pack

The pack includes Bio'tox Cleanser and Refining Cream 2. The Bio'tox Cleanser helps to unclog pores while moisturizing skin and Refining Cream 2 will encourage skin's natural defenses to resist blackheads, reduce redness and irritation while restoring youthful radiant skin with regular usage.

I must admit, I was a little disappointed to receive this as it is more to combat acne prone skin, which I don't have anymore. So I will be putting it aside unopened until I meet someone who wants it. To make things a little sadder, I got the same thing in another beauty box :( So now there are two things which I CAN'T use.

Shills Essential Rose Hydrating Skin Set

Soothe and calm your skin with this travel-friendly Damascus Rose Essential Hydrating Skin Care Set to cover your basic skincare regime. The set includes Rose Essential Dual Action Cleansing Gel (3ml), Rose Essential Hydrating Toner (3ml) and Rose Luxury Essence (3ml).

I love the smell of this product. Roses emit one of the best smells a flower can have, and it can just immediately soothe you. There are so many companies coming up with Rose as their active ingredient in their cosmetic and skincare products nowadays that it's quickly gaining popularity. Even myself, I have just got a Rose based face mask from SaSa last week :p

iGel Aire Refreshing Drops 

Girls nowadays love to wear contact lens especially color contact lens and circle lenses that can make their eyes look bigger but prolong usage of contact lens can make your eyes dry! iGel Aire Refreshing Drops is specially formulated for long lasting comfort and ocular surface management. Dry eyes no more!

This is by far my favourite product in this month's box. Yes, I am a self-confessed lover of coloured contacts every since I discovered them two years ago. Since then I have always used coloured contacts whenever I'm using contacts, so much so that I am now known among my work circles as the girl with the colourful eyes :p This eye drop came at a time when my own were finishing and when I used this, I loved that it gave me a super moisturising feeling and I didn't need to top up another few more drops even after only one drop. It really hydrates my eyes and I love it.

Tsubaki Damage Care Shampoo and Conditioner

Tsubaki Amino content penetrates deeply and repair damaged cell membrane complex, retain moisture, enhances elasticity and unlock hair natural shine and smoothness.

I have not managed to use this yet as I am currently using the L'Oreal shampoo I got from other beauty boxes, so I can't really say whether or not this is good. But considering that it's a brand off Shiseido, it should be a good one :)

Di Palomo Orange Blossom Moisturising Body Wash

This rich and luxurious Body Wash is blended with olive oil, honey and orange blossom extract which are known for their soothing and nourishing properties.

I must say, the fragrance in this particular Body Wash is very strong. I opened it up to take a whiff and the whole room smells like the soap even after only one minute. But apart from that, it does leave a moisturising feeling even after it's been washed off, and the smell seeps away after a while :)

Easter Egg!!!

That's what you call surprises that you didn't expect. This month, in keeping with the Flower Power theme, Mivva gave out a perfumed sachet that is suitable to be left in cars, rooms, and any small spaces to freshen up the room and give it a sweet lingering scent :) Some people I know got this, and others got the Lavender one. I was a bit sad I didn't get Lavender cos I would have really loved it. I left this one in the car, and until now, my car is still smelling super fresh, like a field of wildflowers!

Mivva's September box is coming next week! I can't wait! Their September boxes have all been snapped up, but you can subscribe to their October one now! Just click the link and it will bring you to the website where you can sign up! *click*

Til the next time, stay beautiful!
