The Lilac Box 4 Review

Being a highly anticipated subscriber of Lilac Box when it first began, I couldn't wait for the arrival of it's box number 4.

Lilac Box No. 4

New Look, Same Idea: No Brand & Reusable
Staying true to it's concept of the reusable box, this time round - the simple black ebony box was wrapped with a stylish silver Jimmy Choo ribbon.

Welcome Card
As expected, there was the signature lilac box welcome card greeting and thanking the subscribers for their full support on their subscriptions. The code located below on the left is for subscribers to scan and find out more about the items inside the box.

Sothys Hydradvance & Masque
The first thing I pulled out from the box were these two 15ml bottles of Sothys Hydradvance and Mask.

This mask provides essential nourishing and moisturizing effect, giving an immediate comfort and hydration on your skin. It comes from 1055 Boletus extract, ultra-hydrating complex, precious jojoba and rice bran oil.

  • The Light Cream is suitable for normal to combination skin. Direction: Use it daily, night and day after the application of the serum.

Now I have come to notice that Crabtree & Evelyn has been making quite a few appearances in some of the beauty boxes as of late so it was no surprise that it made an appearance in the Lilac Box. 
  • The Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Hand Theraphy blends conditioning shea butter, moisurizing macadamia nut oil and myrrh extract to help condition cuticles and nails. 
  • Vitamin C-rich Tarocco blood orange extract and skin-freshening eucalyptus and sage extracts moisturize and soothe hands.

O.P.I Steady As She Rose 

This was my absolute favorite from the whole collection. A full size nail lacquer from O.P.I retailing nearly RM50 a piece. This particular color 'Steady As She Rose' comes from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection launched back in 2011.

O.P.I Pirates of the Caribbean Collection 2011
So below is the color show when applied.

First Layer Applied
Second Layer Applied topped with Top Coat
The color was a light purple hue with a tint of pastel pink. This scored big time with me as the color suited very well with my skin-tone.

Loreal Liss Ultime Shampoo and Loreal Liss Ultime Masque
Loreal Mademoiselle Infinium Strong Hold Professional Hairspray 100ml
I think this is the 2nd time I have received the shampoo and masque from previous beauty boxes. The spray is pretty new though. Nonetheless, the Lilac Box presents the stunning Mademoiselle Infinium, the gorgeous Liss Ultime Shampoo and the jaw-dropping Liss Ultime Masque.

Jimmy Choo Flash
Jimmy Choo Perfume
Jimmy Choo FLASH
As seen above, this next big ticket item - which the ribbon came from delivers the launch of Jimmy Choo's new fragrance FLASH.

To be honest the FLASH fragrance wasn't much to my fancy as the scent was a bit too strong for my taste but the other one was was a little bit more feminine - something that could be carried around and used more for a daily basis.

Overall Items
The overall products in the Lilac Box did not disappoint and was presented beautifully with regards to the simple packaging and theme. Well done.
