Our favorite beauty sampling service, BlackBox.sg, just introduced one of their most generous beauty kits yet.
Meet their new Etude House edition!
I literally melted into a pool of gooeyness when I realized the box offers almost every beauty product on my travel must-have list. From BB Cushion foundations, facial soaps, pore minimizing lotions to anti-aging creams, it tackles all your beauty needs without breaking your precious bank.
Aww.. BlackBox and Etude House, bless your cotton socks for this wonderful Christmas surprise. 😀
Looking for a ‘beauty-full’ gift for yourself or your loved ones? Then you’ll have to read on!
Psst! Special rates included. 😛
Here’s a rundown of all the items in my BlackBox x Etude House beauty kit:
If you have gaping pores like me, then you’re gonna love this 3-step pore-minimizing tri-kit too.
It contains a facial soap, freshner (which I assume works like a toner) and essence to reduce the appearance of the pores and moisturize the skin.
Wonder Pore Facial Soap (30g)
This wonder-full facial soap purifies your skin down to the pores and firms your skin with a gentle massaging effect.
How to use? Create lather by rubbing soap with wet hands and gently apply lather onto face.
How much? $14 for 80g
Wonder Pore Freshner (25ml)
Promising a complete cleansing solution, the special peppermint extract used in this freshner does exactly that! Leaves your skin feeling clean, pure and very fresh.
The Freshner also balances pH as part of its repertoire, protecting your skin as it cleanses.
How to use? Before skincare, dispense a sufficient amount of Wonder Pore Freshner onto the side of a cotton pad and gently wipe from the inner to the outer areas of face.
How much? 250ml $18 / 500ml $32
Wonder Pore Corrector (5ml)
This gel spot essence tightens your complexion with its refreshing cooling tip applicator.
At the last stage of basic skincare, simply dispense a small amount of the corrector and allow it to absorb into areas that need special care.
How to use? For more effective absorption, massage gently with the Wonder Pore Corrector’s cooling tip instead of using fingers.
How much? $28 for 25ml
One of the winning factors of the range is their key ingredients Mint Vinegar and Anti Pore-Dex Complex that kill off (gulp!) Dermodex and prevent their future growth as well as their ability to control the production of sebum, remove dead skin cells and restore your skin’s hydration levels.
All three products smell very minty which makes the experience totally refreshing. My favorite is the Wonder Pore Corrector that gets absorbed very quickly, leaving behind smooth and revitalized skin. 🙂
While the fountain of youth may be a thing of legend, this age defense skin care kit may be your next best alternative.
Containing a unique blend of fermented beans, evening primrose (something I’ve been an advocate of ever since those pimple-icious days of yesteryear) and BIO Peptide, the kit strives to restore your skins’ stamina, boost natural collagen formation, prevent collagen decomposition, while providing antioxidant effects to enhance your skins’ immunity.
This is a softener that provides smooth and firm skin by trying to deliver moisture to the deepest layers of your skin.It has a pleasant clear, non-sticky texture, with a refreshing minty aroma, which dries leaving your skin feeling notably tighter.
How to use? Dispense a small amount onto palms during first step of skincare and massage gently from inner to outer areas of face.
How much? $35 for 130ml
Age Defense Essential Emulsion (25ml)
This is an emulsion that firms skin, locking in your skins’ moisture and delivering nutrients deep into the skin.
It’s inherently thicker than the softener, but this facilitates the milky lotions ability keep the moisture in your skin where it’s needed.
A pleasantly mild scent ensures the emulsion compliments the softener well.
How to use? Apply morning and evening after AGE DEFENSE ESSENTIAL Softener. Spread the Emulsion from the center to the sides of the face.
How much? $35 for 130ml
Age Defense Firming Cream (10ml)
This is an all in one complete anti-aging cream boasting wrinkle care and skin protection from deep within.
Rich in texture and rich in nutrients, it definitely delivers and locks in moisture but the viscosity is definitely palpable and may not be to everyone’s liking.
If moisture is your aim, you need not look further.
How to use? After applying serum and eye cream in the morning and evening, pick up a certain amount of cream and spread gently onto forehead, cheeks, and chin. Pat gently afterwards to absorb.
How much? $40 for 50ml
Don’t be fooled by this compacts’ diminutive size, it’s truly as feature-packed as they come.
Don’t believe me? Here’s proof!
I applied the foundation on right side of my face (your left 😛 ) to show you its amazing coverage and ability to make the skin literally glow!
And now you know the secret to Korean ladies’ healthy dewy skin.
Anywhere, anytime, simply grab this multi-functional cushion to give your skin that much sought after fresh, pearlescent glow and feel confident knowing your skin is receiving sun protection, wrinkle care, moisturization, sebum control and excellent coverage. Yeap, told you it’s power-packed.
Add in its unique skin cooling properties and you’re literally onto a winner.
How to use? Pick up the contents with puff and lightly pad on skin.
How much? $32 for 15g
How did we ever live without BB creams? Once a novelty, now an essential, no beauty lover is ever more than arms reach from her trusty BB cream sidekick.
But BB creams have definitely evolved over the years and you’ll find that no two BB creams are ever the same.
Once again, Etude has managed to cram as much goodness as possible into its products. These BB creams are literally bursting at the seams with nutrients providing broad-spectrum SPF 30 sun protection, moisturizing and smoothing properties, offering excellent coverage and correctional features, all whilst packing in whitening, anti-wrinkle and anti-darkening / pigmentation properties.
In terms of texture, fragrance, concealing and covering properties, all three are pretty much on par, so it essentially comes down to skin-tone and personal preference.
So pick your weapon of choice!
Precious Mineral BB Cream Blooming Fit
This BB cream keeps your skin bright and radiant without darkening thanks to Etude’s special pearl ingredient, which can actually be found in all three BB creams.
Precious Mineral BB Cream Cotton Fit
Etude’s bestselling product! This BB cream keeps your skin effortlessly smooth and matte.
Precious Mineral BB Perfect Fit
This BB cream affords your skin the most moist and clear look of the three.
How to use? Apply to all areas of the face. Pat to finish.
How much? $25.90 for 60g
All in all, I think it’s a great beauty travel kit. Its pocket-friendly price tag just kicks it up a notch.
I give it 4 out of 5 Honeyz stars!
