Beauty Discovery: July 2017 Saladbox Lite Subscription Box

Friday, August 11, 2017

Hey girl!

I ordered my box last June and finally, my first and last Saladbox came at my doorsteps yesterday. When I ordered this box, I was full of excitement because it features Benefit Cosmetics but my enthusiasm lowered as the days goes by. I waited for more than a month for this and got tired of waiting and never expects so much. But hey on a brighter side, my heart pound once again after I finally received it. My box was a special one-time offer box which is called Saladbox Lite. 

What is Saladbox?
Since it is my first time with this beauty box, let me give you a brief background of it. It is the first beauty subscription box in PH. I've been doing my beauty blogging since 2013 but never tried this box before. I have read a lot of great reviews about it, but this subscription box was lost in a beauty scene for a while and make a comeback mid last year. Currently, it was rebranded and is now named as Giltbox. So technically, this will be the last Saladbox because for this month of August, they kickstart with Giltbox.

As I mentioned, I got a special one-time offer for last month box which is called Saladbox Lite which include 2 Benefit + 3 random samples. Originally, July Saladbox is a Benefit exclusive box. Benefit exclusive box is for those who are subscribed to 3,6,12 month plan.

How much is my Saladbox Lite? 
It costs me 600 pesos (500 pesos/box + 100 pesos shipping fee)

Currently, Giltbox Subscription Box:
1 month subscription plan: 700 pesos
3 month subscription plan: 1,800 pesos
12 month subscription plan: 6,000 pesos

Let's now get through on what are the items I got on my Saladbox Lite. I got total of 5 items. Each box every month is different and will sometimes contain full sizes or sample sizes. 

The contents of my box

1. Vitress Cuticle Coat Heat Protect (full size)
Perfect for me since I used hair styling tools often. 

2. Boi-ing Benefit Hydrating Concealer (sample size)
As much I am excited about first time using Benefit boi-ing concealer, this sample size is I believe for one-time use only. This is a bluff for me. Err!

3.  VMV Hypoallergenics Moisture Rich Creamy Cleansing Milk (sample size)
New brand and product alert to try for me but I wish I had at least two of this. 

4. Pond's Flawless White BB cream 8g (travel size)
I am so happy to get a BB cream on my box only if it was the right shade for me. I got the light shade but wished I got the beige. Nonetheless, it is still a BB cream. Let me see and will make a review.

5. Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer #2 (travel size)
It is the box saver! Yay. This product is the newest addition to the Boi-ing family. I can't wait to try it and I promise to share my opinion. The full size of this is kinda pricey and it should really work.

Overall thoughts: Saladbox is a good beauty subscription box if you want to keep up with the latest products of some beauty brands. Most of the time you won't get the full size products, but you will surely get complimentary size/travel size that is good enough for try out.

Downside, their delivery time took so long. They should have shipped out the boxes on the same month it should be and not on the next month coming. The current cost per box is 700 pesos/month including the shipping fee which I think is so expensive. Better yet, you should take advantage of their promos like Buy 1 Take 1 for the whole year if you want the full worth of your penny.

Is it worth it? I say, it depends on the brands featured each month. I hope they should increase the worth of their boxes in the coming months. I remember my old BDJ beauty box which cost the same has more exciting full size items on it. 

Let's talk again on my next blog.
Yes, YOU lovely gorgeous.

Love yourself because you are beautiful.

Hugs and Kisses,
