glamabox september review (1)

Hi lovelies, I hope you guys had a blessed Christmas! December is very much of a busy month for me - think Christmas presents shopping, Christmas parties, meetups as well as gatherings. Not forgetting that I was playing host to my cousin whom was in town and I was away one of the weekends.

Today. I'm going to share with you my picks from Glamabox September and October. I know this is late but its better than never.

2013 September Box

glamabox september review (1)

Jane Clare HA Hydrating Serum

glamabox september review (6) 

What is it:

A highly concentrated serum combined with Hyaluronic acid, herbs (including Aloe vera and Cactus extracts), and Vitamins to provide skin moisture and to tighten and tone instantly. The resulting skin complexion looks younger, brighter and more radiant.

Jane Clare Blueberry Revital Firming Mask *MY PICK*

 glamabox september review (2)

What is it:

Made with the freshest organic blueberries and bio-cellulose mask, turns the clock back for free radical-damaged and aging skin. Every single mask contains high-antioxidant essence which improves the skin's resilience and firmness. The bio-cellulose mask covers the entire face and eyes firmly, and helps the active ingredients run deeply into the skin.

My thoughts:

Jane Clare Blueberry Revital Firming Mask is a cellulose mask. After using this mask, my skin felt plumper, softer and very moisturized. It also made my skin look slightly brighter and I realised that my pores looked smaller. I can't say the same when it comes to firmness though.

I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a moisturizing mask but no if you're looking for a firming mask.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo & Effaclar Gel Moussant

glamabox september review (4) 

Effaclar Duo

Can gently purify the skin. It eliminates impurities and excess sebum while leaving the skin clean and fresh with soothing, anti-irritant La Roche-Posay thermal spring water.

Effaclar Gel Moussant

Combines 4 active ingredients to act on the two main symptoms of skin with imperfections: Niacinamide and Piroctone Olamine to fight against bacterial est and eliminate imperfections. LHA and Linoleic Acid unclogs pores while eliminating the accumulated dead cells. These active ingredients are combined with soothing, anti-irritant La Roche-Posay thermal spring water to reduce redness.

ést.lab SunShield SPF 50

glamabox september review (5) 

What is it:

The ést.lab SunShield SPF 50 utilizes SmartVector ® UV technology, an intelligent solar protection system using UV sensitive marine DNA micro capsules that ensures that UV blockers are only released to the skin upon UV exposure. It is also infused with Vitamins C & E to provide moisturizing and anti-ageing benefits. ést.lab SPF 50 is also a tinted sunscreen that can be used as a moisturizing tinted make-up base to conceal blemishes and provide sheer coverage.

My thoughts:

I have previously reviewed est lab Sunshield. You might want to read my full review here,

Whoo Gongjinhyang Qi & Jin Essence, Jin Cream and In Yang Lotion

2013 October Box

glamabox october review (3)

MÍOGGÍ White Genion Total Radiance Serum, White Genion Cell Nutrient Enhancer, Hex Perfector Illuminating Magic BB, Hex Magic Foremilk Cleansing Powder & Definite Renewal Overnight Program

glamabox october review (2)

White Genion Total Radiance Serum

Ground-breaking concentrate to rediscover skin brightness, help prevent and fade existing age spots, lift sagging contour and smooth wrinkles.

White Genion Cell Nutrient Enhancer

Wakeup call for flawless skin. This super-hydrating and anti-aging cream can uplift and revitalize skin, whilst effectively repairing of damaged skin cells.

Hex Perfector Illuminating Magic BB

Provides radiant and transparent skin as well as improves skin problems such as laxity and fine lines.

Hex Magic Foremilk Cleansing Powder  *MY PICK*

Helps skin to regain perfection by effectively strengthening the skin immune system, removing impurities, excess sebum and dead skin cells.

My thoughts: Hex Magic Foremilk Cleansing Powder reminds me so much of Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant! First, you wet your hands before pouring Hex Magic Foremilk Cleansing Powder onto your palm and mix them together evenly before massaging onto your skin in circular motions just like how you use a scrub. I like how it makes my skin feel very smooth after rinsing it off! 

Definite Renewal Overnight Program

Provides the supplements to strengthen skin structural components, promotes cellular repair, boosts skin metabolism, and quenches skin with moisture and nutrients while asleep.

Morii Platinum Essence Facial Mask *MY PICK*

glamabox october review (4)

What is it:

Most concentrated on whitening and hydrates to lift, firm and micro-sculpt your look for younger-looking skin.

My thoughts:

I usually steer clear of anything that says whitening or brightening as somehow my skin can only take whitening/brightening products from certain brands such as SKII and Fancl. Other brands in general would make my skin very dry till the extent that it peels. On the night before any major event, I usually have a brightening facial mask on to prep myself for that event.

I was rather apprehensive to try Morii Platinum Essence Facial Mask out initially as I haven't heard of this brand prior to this though it had an uncanny resemblance to Dr Morita.

In terms of brightening, I say Morii Platinum Essence Facial Mask does a very good job in brightening up my skin tone! In fact, I am surprised at how Morii Platinum Essence Facial Mask manages to moisturize my skin and make my complexion brighter at the same time.

Again, I will recommend this if you're looking for a brightening mask but I'm not too sure about the firming part as I don't really see any visible difference before and after using  Morii Platinum Essence Facial Mask

Morii Lifting Crystal Eye Patches For Dark Pouches

glamabox october review (5)

What is it:

Can boost skin’s natural powers of regeneration so it regains the qualities of young skin. The skin looks rested, smoother and youthfully luminous. It also brightens up dark pouches.

Annie's Way Q10 Anti-Aging Jelly Mask

 glamabox october review (6)

What is it:

It is designed for aged and wrinkled skin and can whiten, moisturize and minimizes fine lines.

My thoughts:

Annie's Way Q10 Anti-Aging Jelly Mask is like your usual sleeping mask except that it has to be removed after 30 minutes. Compared to the rest of the masks that I have tried and mentioned in this post, this has got to be the messiest mask. It doesn't really dry up nor does it absorb into your skin readily hence your hair will tend to stick onto your face. Although Annie's Way Q10 Anti-Aging Jelly Mask does help to moisturize my skin, I did not observe any whitening or reduction in fine lines after using it

EGO SunSense Ultra SPF 50+

glamabox october review (8)

What is it:

SunSense Ultra is light, smooth, easy-to-apply milk that provides very high sun protection factor SPF50+ and has four hours of water resistance.

QV Face Purifying Mask

 glamabox october review (7)

What is it:

QV Face Purifying Mask removes dirt and excess oil, leaving skin smooth and soft to touch. It not only cleans the skin, but also adds moisture with the help of safflower oil and Vitamin E.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo and Effaclar Gel Moussant

glamabox september review (4)

Effaclar Duo

Can gently purify the skin. It eliminates impurities and excess sebum while leaving the skin clean and fresh with soothing, anti-irritant La Roche-Posay thermal spring water.

Effaclar Gel Moussant

Combines 4 active ingredients to fight against bacterial proliferation and eliminate imperfections. The soothing La Roche-Posay thermal spring water can reduce redness.

I hope you like this post! Thanks for reading.
