Unboxing: Secret Santa Glamourbox

Happy Holidays, dear readers! I just got home from Bloggers United 6 and I'm terribly exhausted. The moment I got into the car, I fell asleep and woke up somewhere in Manila. Man, all these late nights are really getting to me. Furthermore, I'm still a little stressed over my upcoming Korea trip mainly because I will be shelling out a lot of money for the trip and I'm thinking about the work that I will leave behind.

Anyway, here's my unveiling of the Secret Santa Glamourbox, our last box for the year. Have you been naughty or nice? I think I am still the sense that I am still masungit and hot-tempered. :(

As always, the Glamourbox team worked really hard at curating this month's box. I would say that this would be one of our heftiest boxes yet (of course, the previous Avon Glamourbox takes the cake) and impressively contains a great selection of products perfect for gift-giving. 

The Secret Santa Glamourbox contains:

1. The Cream Factory Bath Cream with Goat's Milk & Acai Berry
Love how luxurious this bath cream is, and how delightful Acai Berry smells. The Cream Factory offers many variants/scents (from Cinnamon to Yogurt) but the Acai Berry is my absolute favorite.
Sample Size: 221ml
Sample value: Php 266~
Full size value: Php 699/768ml

2. Holika Holika Pure Mellow Multi-Puff
Oh my gosh, isn't this just the cutest? This puff easily conforms to the curves of our face for faster and flawless makeup application.

Sample size: full size
Value: Php 265

3. Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC Cream in Pink Beige
If you're in a pinch, use CC Cream as your moisturizer and makeup base, then just dust over powder. I have yet to try this but I bet it goes well with the Mellow Multi-Puff.
Sample size: 5ml
Sample value: Php 20
Full-size value: Php 855/50ml

4. Zen Zest Kitchen Fragrance in Choco Cappuccino
Seriously, if you love coffee thismuch then you should seriously get a full-sized version of this. It smells so good! Good enough to eat, I tell ya!.
Sample size: 50ml
Sample value: Php 80~
Full-size value: Php 250/250ml

5. Avon Fragrance in Only Imagine
The "petticoat" or tulle flower is fabulous and it has a delicious fruity floral scent. Get this box and gift it to someone you love, if only for the Avon perfume.

Sample size: full size
Value: Php 1,500/50ml


6. Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask
Sachet samples from the popular brand, Paula's Choice. In case you didn't know, the founder Paula Begoun is known as the "Cosmetics Cop."

7. Fabulosa Necklace
Since Glamourbox turned 1 year old last November, we decided to include a little bonus for our subscribers. Isn't the acrylic gift pendant cute?

Use this voucher to get a 10% discount on their signature sugar waxes at or at the World Trade Bazaar on Dec. 6-22, 2013.
