April 2014 Saladbox | Unboxing & First Impressions
This month, Saladbox launched another exclusive box in partnership with Regatta, a Filipino fashion clothing brand, founded in the late 80s. Personally, when I got this box, I wasn’t quite sure whether I would like it because Regatta IS a clothing brand, and I don’t know what beauty related stuff I’m going to get. But, let’s see…
Sunblock Spray SPF 70 UVA/UVB | PhP 245
This lightweight sunblock spray has SPF 70 that will surely protect your skin while you’re out there soaking up the sun.
Too bad I’m not going anywhere this year. My life’s been boring lately so this will go to my backups bin. But this will really be useful and I like that it’s a full size.
25th Anniversary Limited Edition Eau De Toilette For Woman
(With Charm Bracelet) | PhP 425
Spritz on some of this limited edition goodness for that lively and fresh-from-the-shower scent – perfect as your summer fragrance.
Charm Bracelet: Wear this to the beach as bracelet or anklet to celebrate Regatta’s 25th year of stylish existence
I actually really like the scent of this EDT. And as you all may know, I’m very bad at describing scents, so I’m just going to
wing this one describe this one as best as I can. It smells extremely fresh (exactly as though you just came from the shower) but it has a bit of musk that fades over time. Therefore, what stays is that really subtle, fresh scent. I tried it once and I’m very fond of these types of scents.
Lip Balm with Sunscreen Protection in ‘Green Apple’ & ‘Chocolate’ | PhP 85
Green Apple: Have smooth and kissable lips while protecting them from the sun with this apple-scented lip balm.
Chocolate: Get delicious lips (literally) with the chocolate variant of this lip balm with sunscreen protection!
Aaand here we go again with the repetitive/double items. Saladbox is pretty known for such things and sometimes it’s pretty disappointing to be quite honest. But if you know me, I love lip balms, so I kinda have mixed/confused feelings about this one.
Special Edition Wooden Mirror
This beauty tool is a must have for every summer kit – we have to check of we look good all the time!
I actually like this one. It’s pocket sized and really convenient.
TREAT! 25th Anniversary Limited Edition Eau de Toilette For Man
(Full Size – PhP 425)
Spray this fresh summery scent to your man to heighten that summer feel.
I might give this to my nephew.
So those are all of the products that I got from this month’s Saladbox. All in all, I’m pretty pleased with all of them. For PhP 333 (or PhP 500 if you’re in a monthly subscription), you get 4 full sized products (2 of them are practically the same, but it’s okay) and three extras (I consider the charm and the mirror extras). Not bad, Saladbox, not bad. Another good box from Saladbox, and like I said before, I hope this continues until my third box (May) and who knows, I might continue my subscription from June onwards.
How about you? Do you like Saladbox? Do you like Regatta? Do you like beauty boxes? What’s your fave? Let me know.
