December 2012 Saladbox | Unboxing and First Impressions
I just got my December Saladbox a while ago, and upon ‘feeling’ the said box, I noticed that it’s getting lighter and lighter every month. Just saying. Anyway, before anything else, I just wanna say that this will be my last Saladbox unboxing post. I will not be renewing my subscription from the said website because of the following reasons:
- It’s just not worth the PhP 500 anymore. Sure you get number of products amounting to PhP 500 but I don’t feel that it’s something that you’ll end up needing.
- The boxes are getting lighter and lighter every month.
- I don’t need to receive 2 of every items. It’s getting repetitive already.
Those are only some of the reasons why I wont be renewing my subscription. I mean, props to them for being the first subscription service here in the Philippines, but I think they need a major revamp. Just saying. Anyway, enough with the babbling. On to the unboxing.
So as you can see from the third picture alone, there’s nothing much in there. There are two items wrapped in the pink tissue paper, and I’ll be getting to that a little bit later, but first let’s start with those that aren’t wrapped.
Carmex Lip Moisturizing Balm Tube | 10g (PhP 110 ea)
You received a day lip balm last month, this month we complete your lip care regimen with thi night balm from Carmex
As it says in the caption, I received my first Carmex lip balm last month (Read my November Unboxing post here), and I have mentioned there that I have a strange addiction towards lip balms. However, with this particular lip balm, I don’t know. I do love Carmex lip balms, but as I’ve mentioned earlier, it’s just getting repetitive.
Alyssa Ashley Musk EDT | 25ml (PhP 960 ea)
This scent is so familiar, it reminds us of younger years and lotions and boxes from abroad
Another perfume sample, Yay! -__-
I got a perfume sample from the same brand/line last month. Just saying.
Now on to the wrapped products…
Ciate Nail Lacquer in Mistress | 50ml (PhP 650 ea)
The newest trend in the nail department. Caviar is now for the nails too!
This is the mini-sized Ciate and it contains 5g of product. This is the only item that I happened to like from this box. I saw a couple of boxes that got the ‘beads’ or the ‘caviar’ aside from the paint pots, but it’s okay, I’m pretty satisfied with this one. I actually don’t have the time to use those.
Virginia Olsen Minerals – Mineral Blush in Bronzer Wood Matte | 2g (PhP 480 ea)
The perfect blush for that perfect finish — perfect for this holiday season
What I got in my October Saladbox were mineral eyeshadows. This one, however, is a mineral blush. I like this as well, and I can’t wait to try this on.
TREAT – Sophia By Virginia Olsen & Crumpler

Ooh, GCs, wonder when I’ll be able to use these. I’ll let you know.
Calling Cards and a Brochure

Uhm.. Okay. I guess I’ll be needing this in the near future. I guess..
So those are all of the items/products that I got from my December 2012 Saladbox and that will be the last unboxing & first impressions entry that you’ll be reading from this blog regarding the said subscription service. Of course you will still be reading about BDJ & Glamourbox because I have no plans of letting go of those subscription services, but I really have to let go of this one. As I’ve mentioned before (and a couple of times already), it’s just not worth it. Until maybe I’ve heard of some positive reviews about this subscription service, then I’ll probably come back to it. Till then, good bye Saladbox.
How about you guys? Did you subscribe? Did you like it your December Box? Did you subscribe for a January Box? How do you like it so far? Let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts
