Cosmobox First Unboxing Party by Box Culture


Hello Beautylicious. We meet again in this post.

I am so excited to share with you my experience attended one of the event for Bloggers. Do take note this going to be a long post. Happy reading !! =)

On 23 June 2013 Box Culture has organized their very first “ Cosmobox Unboxing Party”. Thanks a million to Sze Yong and Lee Yen for extended the invitation to me. The Event was held at “Cupcake Chic” at The Curve. The dress theme was “Pink and Black” which also the theme colours for their Beauty Box i.e.  Cosmobox. I personally love the colours combination including the metropolitan look at the box cover. I have been subscribed to their box since December 2012 since it was featured in Female Magazine (in December 2012 edition). However, I missed the June 2013 box (never realized that my subscription has come to an end in May 2013). So, when I was invited for this very first unboxing event, I was extremely happy. Box Culture, you guys are really thoughtful. Love you!!

For those of you who are still new, Beauty Box is a beauty subscription that comes via box or bag. It contains few sample/deluxe size products (sometimes in full size). There are vast beauties products in market not only limited to skin care range, make up range, accessories range, hair care etc.  Beauty Box offers their subscribers to try and indulge new products/brand in market. Reason being, there are at times we are bit uncertain to purchase the full size products due to the price and size. We also worried if the particular product or brand does not fit to our skin, it would end, wasted. So by subscribing to Beauty Box, it is one of the alternative ways for us to experience the compatible of the products in market. I personally feel that this Beauty Box provides the following:-

1.   Save Money, Time and Energy – With low subscription fee every month, you are able to enjoy and try few items in one box. Sometimes the products featured include full size items and it worth more than the subscription fee. Furthermore, you can save time and energy from wonders in malls to gather samples from beauty booth.  That’s awesome rite?

2.    More knowledge about trends and products in market – This Beauty Box is also educating their subscribers by introducing the new brands/products in market. Not only that, the description of products on what and how is very useful for users as well. We are no longer wonders how this or that products works.

3.   Chances attending Beauty Workshops/Events – From the products and brands featured in the box, the Beauty Box provider then would collaborate with the participating brands and arrange some workshop or events to provide more knowledge about the products to their members. 

Ever since this beauty box concept was introduced and popular in States, I could not resist getting one for myself. But one is never enough and I ended up subscribed to few beauty boxes. In the end I become Beauty Junkie addict. Every month must subscribe one at least for myself, LOL. 

Before we talk further about the event, let me just talk little bit about the main organiser of this event, i.e. Box Culture. Box Culture was founded in July 2012 by two lovely ladies named Sze Yoong and Lee Yen. They introduced their beauty box (concept box) called Cosmobox. Their mission is to share their love and passion to subscribers towards beauty thru Concept Box. With subscribers fee of RM33.00 permonth, we can embark ourselves into the journey of discovering beauty inside out.

The Event started with a welcome note by Sze Yoong (one of the Box Culture Co-Founder). She introduced the collaborating sponsors which are; “Cupcake Chic”, “Juice Works”, "Bake by Joelle", Loreal Professionnel and “Think Party Thought”. Then Sze Yoong requested Swee San (blogger from Sweet Spot), also one of the host to explain further about the Cupcake Chic background, the venue, the menus (which tempting and yummy!). We later found out that Swee San is also working with CupCake Chic.
