MIVVA Beauty Box May Edition Review

Thank you Michelle from MIVVA for sponsoring the May Beauty Box for review :) Was happy to find the MIVVA Box arriving safely with bubble wrap securing the box. Felt very excited when I saw the package on my desk and I couldn't wait to tear open the box too see what's inside when I received it.

Cute MIVVA sticker securing the contents neatly. Another layer to uncover before the excitement begins!

The first thought I had when I opened the box was 'Why so many papers?' lol... Nonetheless, it is mostly product information along with special promotions for brands in the May edition MIVVA Box :) 

Check out the Mary Chia voucher for complimentary 4-In-1 Body Detoxification Therapy! It is a combination of thermal vibrations with air pressure application, followed by a body wrap and sauna to aid the body metabolize excess body fat and reduce water retention for a more trim and defined physique. The 1 hour session is worth RM400.

A cute Mother's Day Card which I get to fill in all the fun memories me and my mom had together! Basically, this month's MIVVA Box is in conjunction with the celebration of Mother's Day which falls in the month of May. It's really convenient as I gave my mom the products from MIVVA as part of the her Mother's Day present! Plus, I get to use some of the products as well. hehe...we get to try the same products to pamper our body and skin :)

A mini floral teacup. Love how small the teacup is, really adorable but it you can't drink much tea from it xD 

Aupres Ultimate White Extra Intensive Spot Serum, RM150 (30ml). Contains multiple whitening ingredients to inhibit persistent dark spots and improves skin dullness while preventing melanin production, leaving skin looking brighter and more radiant. I love this sample because it pumps out the product instead of me having to pour it out which can be quite difficult sometimes because of the small bottle. It has a slight fragrance to it too.

Aupres Aqua Active Sleeping Mask, RM95 (80g).  Provides immediate hydration across all areas of concern, restoring the skin's dewy and supple complexion. Love sleeping masks as they keep my skin well hydrated when I am sleeping in the air conditioned room. Tried it once and it left my skin moisturized all night but there is a layer of shine when I woke up. Didn't experience this when I use another brand but I will definitely finish up the sample and see if it works well.

Inside the Aupres pouch also contained an invitation for a 10 minute facial massage and also a 3 piece sample upon consultation. Can't wait to try out the facial :D

Garden of Eden Jojo E Serum, RM39.90 (15ml)
Jojo E contains 100% natural concentrates than strengthen the skin's firmness and elasticity against stretch marks and hydrate very dry & itchy skin. Jojo E's Triple Action Formula consists of 3000iu Natural Vitamin E and Grape Seed Oil to provide effective antioxidant protection to the skin's collagen against free radicals. Essential fatty acids (EFAs) from Jojoba Oil, Safflower Oil and Grape Seed Oil provide essential nutrients for healthy skin cell renewal and repair.

Besides that, it can also be massaged into the scalp to be left overnight before shampooing to prevent hair fall. Sharing this with my mom as I occasionally use this on the dry patches of my leg, it is not oily at all!

Somang Danahan RGII Premium EX Deep Wrinkle Line Cream, RM349.90 (35ml)
A double functional cream for whitening and deep wrinkles. Especially for areas like expression line, forehead to in between brows. The cream features a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid which acts as peptide to fill in deep wrinkles and strengthen the skin's barrier. This product is definitely useful for my mom. Gave it to her but I don't think she used it yet. 

O'slee Rosehip Hydra-White Cleansing Power, RM49.90 (55g). A micro-form cleansing powder which contains coconut and cinnamon botanic extracts. Its deep cleansing function can remove blackheads and cuticles without drying the skin. It has pH value of 5.5, to minimize skin irritation. I find this cleansing powder really useful especially when I am out traveling. Don't need to carry so much liquid products. It lathers up really quickly and keeps my skin feeling really clean :D

Nature's Lab Antioxidant Body Scrub, RM76 (250ml). A rich blend of unique natural exfoliating agents and vital antioxidants with added Gingko Biloba anad Chamomile extracts leaves skin renewed, smooth and healthy. This is definitely my favourite product in the MIVVA box. As I am quite a fan of body scrubs, I love the smell of this product and it definitely does its job. The lovely scrub aroma also lingers on the body for a while after bathing,

Claire Organics Handmade Soap, RM16-22 (100g)
Handmade soaps have been on my wishlist for a while now but I haven't gotten to purchasing them yet as I still have not used up my facial cleanser. MIVVA Box arrived just in time for me to try out one! Handmade soaps are made from fresh and natural high-quality ingredients such as essential oils, shea butter, olive oil, oatmeal or goat's milk. It does not irritate or flare up the skin easily as well as in the long run. I find it really unique that handmade soaps need to go through a curing period about 3-4 weeks before it is ready to use! Claire Organics has different range of handmade soaps with different purpose which are:
  • Mulberry Yogurt Soap: Whitening and anti-aging
  • Aloe Vera Shea Butter Soap: Antioxidant, damage repairing and gentle cleansing
  • Guinness Stout Soap with Organic Raw Honey: Revitalising and anti-acne
  • Rose Hips Soap with Osmanthus: Nourishing and gentle cleansing
  • Evening Primrose Soap with Golden Jojoba: Anti-aging and rejuvenating
  • Calendula Soy Milk Baby Soap: Nourishing baby care for eczema and gentle protection

The one I gotten was Mulberry Yogurt Soap. Not much on the whitening part as my face is quite fair already, wouldn't want to look like a ghost. lol... Would try it for the anti-aging properties :D Sharing this with my mom too! I am also very much intrigued by the Guinness Stout Soap. Looks promising.

Thanks again to MIVVA for sponsoring the May edition beauty box!
