A group of blogger friends and I were discussing the recent beauty subscription box phenomenon in the region and we kind of got to wondering what we would put into a beauty box, if given the opportunity.
Me? I didn’t know what I wanted to put in. So I went with personal favourites or things I wanted to try.
First, let’s start with the first serum I ever tried – the revered Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Repair Complex. Briefly, this gives me rejuvenated skin every time I use it and is a regular staple in my skincare routine.
Next, I’d put in By Terry’s Eclat De Rose Sheer Tinted Moisturiser for that natural no make-up look that every female covets. Why this brand? Because it’s rather luxe and expensive and not easily obtainable. Heh.
Next to cross my mind was Fresh’s Sugar Lip Treatment for soft, kissable lips. Nevermind that I’ve not yet tried this (even though I’ve picked up it up in Sephora a few times already and then put it back). A girl can’t have too many lip balms or lip treatments in her purse or drawer.

Then I’d include Shu Uemura’s famous Hard Formula brow pencil, plus a voucher for their famous Brow Atelier service. It really is true that your brows frame your eyes and can open up your facial features if nicely shaped.

Finally, let’s add in an item that could be a hit or miss, depending on whether you like it or not. It’s a purely selfish choice, driven by my current obsession with nail polishes – Cult Nails limited edition Seduction. Because it’s pretty and eye-catching and every girl should have the opportunity to own a duochrome flakie polish.
I realize that the stuff I’ve chosen may not be liked by all but hey, everyone’s got a different idea of perfect, right?
Here’s what my blogger friends would put into their beauty boxes:
- Beautyholics Anonymous
- Beauty up my life
- Beetrice’s Reviews
- Belle Demoiselle
- My Women Stuff
- My Views My Reviews
- Pretty Beautiful
- Red Luscious Lips
- Rinnah’s Consumer Reviews
- Skin Deco
- Unconventional Geek
