The Lilac Box Men's Edition Review

12.11.13


So I understand that it has been a while since I did my last beauty box review, so let's kick-start this Tuesday by covering the Lilac Box Men's Edition.


The Lilac Box


As all of us know, we girls pride ourselves on our cleansing and facial routine, but sometimes you have to ask - do our men do the same thing?



In Malaysia, we have plenty of beauty boxes catering to the female community and admittedly it is quite rare to see a beauty box tap into a similar category for men.

So when the Lilac Box announced that they were going to have a male's edition of the beauty box, I freaked. I immediately called my other half and asked him if he was interested and he directly told me to get one box for him.



What's your say?


We should probably note that men's cleansing routine is just as important as women. Why?

  • To Remove Dirt and Harmful Particles to the Skin.
  • Keep Skin Clean and Moisturized.
  • For a Healthier & Better Looking Skin.

You see, men often dart out for activities just as much as we do and as their schedule gets hectic, they tend to forgo their cleansing routine.

Our usual understanding is that they just don't have time to deal with these sort of things but hey, men are just as particular about their skincare just as much as women are.


The Lilac Box Men's Edition Box Unveiling


Survival Notes; Your Step-By Step Guide

Items received

So when the box reached our doorstep, Dan looked quite happy as he unboxed it in front of me.

So let's go through the contents shall we?



Sothys Pack of Three - Cleanser, Purifying Lotion and  Hydra-Matte Fluid

Sothys Pack of 3

The first product Dan took out was Sothys Pack of Three. A regime consisting of an active cleanser, a purifying lotion and one hydra matte fluid.


Sothys Homme Detoxifying Active Cleanser

Step 1: Sothys HOMME Detoxifying Active Cleanser (50ml; RM99)

  • What?
    • Cleanses the face.
  • How?
    • Wet the face, use about 10-cent amount, gently rub across wet face, rinse and pat dry.
  • When?
    • Twice a day; when you wake up and before you sleep.


Sothys Purifying Lotion

Step 2: Sothys Purifying Lotion (40ml; RM49)

  • What?
    • Tones and purifies the face.
  • How?
    • Apply to face and neck using cotton pad. Repeat until clean.
  • When?
    • Twice a day after Step 1.


Sothys Hydra-matte Fluid

Step 3: Sothys Hydra-matte Fluid ( 15ml; RM99)

  • What?
    • Controls oil production
  • How?
    • Use about 20 cent amount on palm. Stroke gently across face.
  • When?
    • Twice a day after Step 2. This will complete the 3 step skincare regime.


I could see that Dan really enjoyed the products and after 3 weeks of usage, he came back to me on it's feedback.


Sothys Pack of Three

  • Dan's overall results after 3 weeks of usage.

    • Skin feels more moisturized and cleansed. Results showed firmer and fresher looking skin after the first 2 weeks of use.

    • "For someone who travels a lot and I do like the fact that the 3 step Sothys cleansing set is well packed and is all ready for its 35,000 feet journey into the skies. As they are all packaged in containers not more than 100 ml, the set is perfect travel companion for me."


Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander Refreshing Body Bar

Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander Refreshing Body Bar


Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander Refreshing Body Bar ( 140g; RM38)

  • What?
    • This gentle yet deep cleansing body bar purifies your skin and keeps you fresh all day.
  • When?
    • Advisable to use twice daily.


Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Body Wash 

Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Body Wash

Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Body wash ( 50ml; RM30)

  • What?
    • Soothes and moisturizes the skin daily with a relaxing sea air fragrance.
  • When?
    • Advisable to use twice daily.


After 3 weeks of using the two Crabtree & Evelyn products above, here are the results:

  • Dan's overall results after 3 weeks of usage.

    • Skin is cleansed well and is left with an option of 2 wonderful scents. The shower gel lathers quite nicely if you are looking for a full on soap bath while the body bar leaves a refreshing scent and feel to the skin.

    • "I like how the Lilac Box has given the option of a soap bar vs a shower gel. Personally I use both shower gels and the traditional body bars base on the situation. I can carry the cabin safe bath gel bottle for use when I travel and also have the luxury of a traditional soap bar when I am at home."


Beckham Intimately Yours Men Fragrance

3x 2ml Beckham Intimately Yours Men Fragrance 

Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Body wash ( 50ml; RM30)

  • What?
    • Stimulating top notes of blood mandarin, ice lemon, and crushed leaf into a heart of sage, fused with lavender and basil. A seductive and inviting dry-dawn of warm sandalwood, tonka beans and vetiver.
  • When?
    • For that special occasion with your loved ones or a night out. 

  • Dan's overall results after 3 weeks of usage.

    • Enjoyed the lingering scent of oak that was able to last up to 4 hours per application. It delivers well and is good for use on a nice night out.

    • "I would have enjoyed more variety from the Beckham line like the Intimately Beckham Night and Instinct rather than 3 of the same perfume but the samples were good for travel purposes. A spray nozzle would be more efficient but other than that, I really enjoyed using the perfume."

Total Products

Overall, Dan was pretty happy with the total of 8 products. After all, having products that are travel friendly, light and enhances healthy skin are the best.

Now who said keeping your man groomed isn't a priority? ;)


Happy boy with his products!

This picture was taken 3 weeks after the use of the products. As Dan resides in Singapore, he was excited to show me the results (committed much? lol) and snapped a photo with him and the items. So proud that he still keeps it neatly in the box as he takes it whenever he travels. ^.^

Now although this was taken with a camera phone, you can see how well his skin is doing after using the products.

So a big thank you to the Lilac Box for opening doors to our men and taking the time to introduce to them to a good skincare and grooming regime that leads to better skincare. Us girls couldn't ask for more :)
