Yes, CosmoBox has called it quits, but they announced on their FB page that they have limited boxes up for grabs which contain products from their collaborators over their course, and I just had to. 

Although, I probably shouldn't have.


[Their Ever-Chic Packaging]


[The Gorgeous White Box]


[Such a Promising Start]

As soon as I saw what was in the black envelope, I knew I had made a mistake. Mariah Carey is very often an omen.


[Shock and Horror]


[Utter Disappointment]

While I understand that this is their means of cashing in and clearing out the clutter, this was a complete curve ball to me.


[Sebastian Shampoo & Conditioner]

I don't have coloured hair, so I'm not at all pleased with this. Also, why is the conditioner bigger than the shampoo? I suppose, however, that had this been a regular shampoo and conditioner, I would have been a little happier with the box. This is available to anyone who would like it. Just let me know in the comments!


[The Nail Shop File & Buffer]

I go to The Nail Shop to get my pedis done, so I'm fine with a bit of brand loyalty here. No complaints on this one, but not particularly exciting either.


[Pink Hair Ties]

Okay...why not?


[3x3 Mariah Carey Scents]

All of these are too sweetly scented to my liking so if anyone would like them, you're welcome to them!


[Asian Potion's Body Lotion]

I would have been very happy with this if it weren't enough for my just my toe.


Honestly, it's not even completely full. I didn't gouge any out. It's basically a dot or two. At most it would be enough for barely 1 application to my elbows.


[Natural Well Being's Bar Soap]

I'm not a bar soap user, but I guess the 30% shea butter content would work out well for not drying out the skin. Worth a shot I guess.


[CosmoBox's Hair Holders]

In all honesty, this is the most exciting thing in this box. I've been looking for these and haven't been able to find them. They're also very pretty! For those who don't know what these are, they're basically velcro strips which hold your hair out of your face while you apply skincare or makeup or masks, etc. Love! 

All in all, this was not the end I had hoped for where CosmoBox is concerned. Even as a house cleaning exercise, this was truly disappointing. Not as disappointing as Pouch of Love, but somewhere in that vicinity. I'm just grateful this was only RM33 and I can live with that level of disappointment. When will I learn?!

    1. Hello!!!
      I guess that is why beauty boxes appeal to so many women. It's so very subjective! I don't even doubt that my displeasure with this box has a lot to do with my personal tastes. I'm so glad you like it though!

  4. Of course, I couldn't resist this Cosmobox clearance but what do you know, I was really quite happy with my boxes - I got mascara in all my boxes!
    So pleased to be able to bag me another of the Cosmobox's all-white troves. It really made my week but I'm still sad that they are gone :(

    1. Oh you lucky girl! MASCARA!!! I'm all green with envy!

      I'm rather sad they're done with too. I guess I'll just have to stare longingly at my boxes till something else pops up!
