[REVIEW] The Lilac Box - Valentine's Blind Date


I'm so excited to review my first ever subscription box named The Lilac Box also is their debut box with the "Valentine's Blind Date" theme :D

Towards the end of the last year, I saw many subscription box company started to introduce their own in Malaysia and I wasn't particularly interested since I think the brands are too 'meh' and some of them include the brands that I'm not going to try for sure.

I saw some of other blogger posted about the Lilac Box on their blog and I noticed that this company works with most of the brands that I was really really interested in!Though at the time I still think that I won't subscribe to them.

Although I wasn't particularly cared the most about this box, I did follow up with some of their updates on Facebook since they did not officially launched the box at the time.Then one day I saw their post about the new debut box has started to sell, I immediately ordered the box without much thinking. One of the reason could be that the price is cheaper than any other subscription boxes I know!(err..ok I know some of the cheaper ones now but I'm not interested with their featured brands)

So finally the box arrived exactly before the Chinese New Year holiday started!yeay!

The box is wrapped with another box in the delivery to make the original box safer on looks~


Sorry for the bad photography..I don't know how people do it so beautifully..


  • Kerastase Resistance Bain Force Architecte - Daily, reconstructing shampoo for weakened and very  damaged hair.
  • Kerastase Ciment Anti-Usure - Daily conditioner to strengthen weakened to very damaged hair.
I tried the shampoo and conditioner for two days and I really like them. I'm a sucker for a nice smell and I actually smelled them before using it. My first impression is that the shampoo doesn't really smells good. However, the aftermath was the opposite since after I rinsed them off, I noticed that I smelled something good that came from my hair. The smells is really lovely and I love it. That's why people said, don't judge the book by its cover.. :D

Considering that this is for weaker to very damaged hair, I'm not really disappointed but I prefer more on the hair care for the hair loss since I had a hair fall problem. Although it's not a very big problem but I wanted to at least lessen it up so I don't grow bald when I'm old..lol ( but does weaker  hair is in the same group as the hair loss?)

Nevertheless, I still love this shampoo and conditioner because it made my hair smells really good and make it really smooth :D



  • Decleor Aroma Cleanse Fresh Purifying Gel -  Fresh Purifying Gel transforms on contact with water into a gentle, light foam thanks to peppermint water. Skincare with Ylang Ylang Essential Oil, which purifies the skin and regulates sebum.
  • Decleor Aroma Cleanse Mattifying Lotion - This Fresh Mattifying Lotion with Papaya Extract and mattifying powders completes cleansing.
  • MaxFactor Limited Edition Nailfinity in Boji.
I've tried once for the Decleor samples and it's was okay.Not too overwhelming which I may think to buy the full size but it was okay since it provides moisture with calming aroma. The purifying gel is more to water like and it gives minty feel to my skin after use whilst the mattifying lotion provides moisture to my skin :D 
Both of them are very light on skin so to those who had an oily skin like me who wish to try these products could have less worries since it doesn't make my face looks like it can fried an egg after using this.

For the MaxFactor nail polish, honestly I'm not the into nail polishes so I have no info about them and I think I might do a giveaway since I had another nail polish unused :D . One thing that I can comment on this is the color is really nice. It gives a hint or medium tone of burgundy-purple color.



  • Roberto Cavalli Perfumed Body Lotion
Sexy and gorgeous~

If you ask me for my most favorite products among all, it would be this body lotion by Roberto Cavalli. The first time I opened the tube, I immediately falling in love with the smell although it's not really a 'young' smell but more to grown up woman who could be around 22-30 years old. When I smelled it, I could imagine a hardworking office worker woman.lol

Only just for a few drop, I can cover up my hands until the palm for the smell :D . The smell stays on my skin very well although I wash my hands frequently and I still can smell it. The lotion itself is very light, non-sticky and makes my skin super smooth and smells really good. :DD

I might consider buying the full size or even the perfume set ( ^ _ ^)∠☆

  • Burberry Beauty Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base.
I don't exactly read the name before I'm using it because I initially thought it was a base with beige color.When I opened the base, my first thought, "ahhh..this is similar to aura nymph by Etude House"
because the texture on the first look was very similar. I started to think that I might dislike this as I dislike the aura nymph. The reason why I dislike this type of glow base is because I had an oily skin and it would make my face looks like I was splashing with the cooking oil plus it would messed up my make-up totally. However, I convinced myself to try them yesterday because I don't wanna such high end brands samples went to waste. Surprisingly, my original thought went wrong when the fluid base was very light and sheer. It doesn't feel heavy on skin and the the fluid itself almost like water, not the same type as the aura nymph. It blends really well with my foundation and I even had some left from the first sample because it covered up my entire face with just a little of it. Please refer to my full make-up face at the end of the post :3



The fluid base had a very light to sheer in color so it suits all skin colors :D


  • Decleor Signature Aromaplasty Facial @ RM98
  • Kerastase Paris Centro Hair Salon RM50 Cash Voucher
*sigh* since I'm not living in KL, it would be hard for me to use any of these voucher so I find they both are mostly useless. Though one of them are available in Mid Valley which is the easiest access to me but I still don't have time to travel to KL just to use this coupon ( although I really want to try them at least once! )

Overall, I was pleased for most of the goodies they've included in this box because you can never get the same price as this if you buy them directly. :)



Thank you! Much love xoxo
