I came home to this! I wasn't expecting it because, as usual, I was stalking their page today and they mentioned that the first batch went out yesterday. Excitement promptly ensued and I ran to my room to rip it open and avoid the questions about why I need so many cosmetics and skincare products. People just don't understand that there is no such as thing as too much of a good thing. This is a lie perpetuated by Indian people who want to hoard their money for a lavish funeral.
[WonderBox - July 2013]
The theme for this month is summer! I know it shouldn't be this exciting since I live in Malaysia and this is a tropical country and it's always summer, but to me summer means hydration and coral! Love!
I also need to mention that I adore the fact that the colour of the ribbon is different from last month (when it was purple). I do hope this is a thing with them where they give you a different coloured ribbon every month.

[WonderBox - July 2013]
[Ginvera's Green Tea Jade Dark Eye Circles Roll Away]
Yay! For those of you who don't know this, I have a penchant for eye creams. And now I think I've tried everything in Ginvera's Green Tea line. I was standing in Caring there other day when I promptly ran over (my workplace is in the building office) after reading the amazing reviews on the BB Cream, and contemplating purchasing this. So glad I didn't. So, so glad to have received this! I did, however, purchase the BB Cream and a review is forthcoming during my BB Cream trial month starting 1st of August.
When I saw the next few products, my excitement died a little because I'm neither a teenager nor acne riddled.
[Nu Teen's Acne & Pimples Away Cleanser]
This really annoyed the hell out of me. Not only do I really not like this product, but it was leaky and had messed up the rest of the box which I had to clean before taking the remaining pictures.
[Nu Teen's Acne & Pimples Away Sleeping Mask, Acne Away Gel, Blackheads Away Gel]
[Nu Teen's Acne Away Gel & Blackheads Away Gel]
No words for how annoyed I am by all of this. I don't understand the purpose of filling in the beauty survey when you join WonderBox's site if they don't give you stuff that's appropriate to your age range or skin concerns. Pshhh
If anyone is interested in the Nu Teen stuff, just let me know and it's all yours!
Le Scenteur's Whitening Hand & Body Lotion]
I have 5 million and 1 lotions at the moment and this doesn't really inspire much excitement in me. I'll give it a shot. Might be worth travelling with, I suppose?
[Bloop's Lip Liner Pencil]
This I'm really quite happy with! There's no colour code on it so I can't really tell you what colour it is, but it's definitely a very pretty shade and it says that it's waterproof and contains vitamin E and aloe vera on the packaging. Both of those are supposed to be very soothing so this seems promising for a long-wearing, non-drying liner. Can't wait to test it out!
[Ma Cherie's Air Feel Shampoo and Conditioner]
For those who don't know, this is one of Shiseido's cheaper brands and though I've never actually tried anything from this line, I do love everything I've ever tried out from Shiseido so I have high hopes for this! It's also a pretty decently sized sample bag of both items so no complaints on my end.
[b.liv's Stem Cell Revival Mask]
As I've mentioned previously, I've recently been trying to be more diligent in masking, so this is definitely a good thing. In fact, I was in SaSa the other day and looking at this range. I like how the universe is rewarding me for restraining myself from buying everything that I want. It says on the packaging that this is made from apple stem cells and it's got anti-aging properties. I'm really stoked to try this out!
All in all, I'm reasonably happy with this box. I did renew my subscription after receiving my first box last month and I bought a quarterly subscription, so two more boxes to go. I genuinely hope they start accounting for the beauty survey you take and stop sending me stuff that's for spotty teenagers.
However, on the whole, I can't really complain. The other stuff is just grand and I'm very pumped to try it all out. Reasonably well done this July, WonderBox! More makeup please! <3
This box costs RM45 and Monthly, Quarterly, Half-Yearly and Annual subscription plans are available.
