What's Inside My First SaladBox?



Last week, the kind people from The SaladBox sent me a sample of their beauty & lifestyle subscription box. If you're wondering what's inside, take a peek:

The Press box is themed "Filipino Pride" and contains four homegrown products. Except for the Camaru Naturals bamboo charcoal soap (whose new packaging got me so excited), I am unfamiliar with the rest of the brands.

  • Full-size Natura Cosmetics Argan Cheek and Lip Stik (P150/10g) - beauty
  • Full-size Camaru Naturals Bamboo Charcoal Soap (P150/135g) - beauty
  • Full-size Hot Shop Perfume in Happy (P400/50mL) - beauty
  • Travel-size BC Fragrance Pillow Mist (P150/60mL) - lifestyle

Among these products, I'm least excited to try out the lippie. I can't wait to test out the perfume though while the Pillow Mist intrigues me as it claims to "clear the mind" --- definitely not something you'll sleep in before a big exam, hehe.

Check out my review of the products inside the September Saladbox.

Is It Worth Subscribing To?  At this point, it is unsound to come up with a conclusion. I was sent a Media edition of the beauty box which is in no way intended to mirror what paid ones contain. SaladBoxes are supposed to be a customized set of products based on the subscriber's beauty profile during sign-up. 

Also, SaladBox subscribers are promised---

  • Beauty, grooming and lifestyle products you will definitely love
  • Experience new, up-and-coming brands & timeless classics 
  • Get four or more deluxe miniatures from the best beauty and lifestyle brands worldwide
  • Try new products without breaking the bank and filling your dresser with all that unwanted clutter
These are huge promises and getting all these for P500/month is a very good deal if you ask me.

In all honesty, I feel that the SaladBox Press boxes may have been a less fruitful attempt in encouraging beauty enthusiasts to sign-up. Some conclude that the Press boxes ARE the actual boxes and so they shy away from hitting that 'Join Now' button. Again, Press Boxes  Subscription Boxes.

If you're on the fence about getting this wonderful aquamarine box, you may initially want to try their monthly recurring plan and cancel before your credit card is charged for the following month's subscription. OR, hypnotize a good friend into sending the subscription to you as a gift! *winks*
