Un-Boxing | Glamabox June 2013

Apologies!  This box arrived early but I'm still posting this late - I was away on vacation...  Well done Glamabox, for delivering this in the first week of June!  They usually send out boxes around the 10th and it can arrive about mid-month.  This month they definitely did it swift and sweet.  Also, their newly designed product description notes are adorable - this month they incorporated the lovely Rubber Duck - I'm liking it.  ;)

Old Friends

As Glamabox secretly reviewed on their facebook page, I knew there is going to be some Bioderma threw in.  There is!  A good sample of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution is in there, which I always have in my possession and enjoy using for specific purposes - check out my full post on that.  Other than this cleansing water, the Erb Eastern Treat Aromatic Hand Cream is also an old favourite.  I got one of these in a previous box - the Bridal Box - and I like it, a lot.  It smells fresh and flowery, is fast-absorbed and leaves hands non-sticky.  Then there's a set of Shampoo and Conditioner from Kerasys for dry and damaged hair.  I do not have particularly dry or damaged hair, but my hair is reasonably long and sometimes I do have split-ends.  This set smells delicious, reminds me of Asience or Tsubaki hair care.

New Acquaintance 

Anya Snail Healing Cream is a thick cream with a high content of hydration, not grease.  I can tell the difference when it is smoothed over my hand.  The cream, or its snail ingredients, definitely moisturises and gives skin a plumper livelier look.  It has a great fragrance, too, a girly fruity floral.  Last but not least, the 'gem' of the box, which is the little glass vial of Bb Laboratories Hyalurone Elastin Collagen Extract.  It is a concentrated serum with really micro-minute-molecules to penetrate skin effectively.  I haven't used this yet but I will write back when I do!

Price Break-down

Bb Laboratories Hyalurone Elastin Collagen Extract 5 ml = $250
Bioderma Sensibio H2O 10 ml = $7
Anya Snail Healing Cream 8 g = $80
Erb Eastern Treat Aromatic Hand Cream 10 g = $35
Kerasys Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner 60 ml x2 = $88

Total = $460


This is a "Hurray" box.  Although there are three old friends out of the 5 products, I find them being really great beauty items.

I can't believe that it's been 10 months since my subscription started, and there are only 2 more boxes coming...!

Do you enjoy reading these?  

Beautiful wishes,
Lazy silly Jacq :")


  1. this year is going so fast ...
    I thought bioderma sample would be larger, but all the others are of a good size...
    I would like to try some snail cream or snail gel... I'll see if I can buy some later because inspired by you, I started a spending ban/makeup embargo... and I will try to complete it ...

    1. Personally I don't 'mind' the Bioderma is small because I have a lot of bottles in stock XD But I saw other glama-subscriber complaining on this... Snail as an ingredient is quite nourishing and moisturising, good if you have dry skin or want more repair.
      I will follow your spending ban progress - keep it up!
