Somang Keratin Silk Protein Hair Shampoo and Hair Pack

Hair Pack: RM 49.90 for 500 ml / RM 79.90 for 1000 ml

It is formulated with Keratin protein & 7 flower extracts, using it regularly will make the hair flashy & healthy while providing nutrition. It prevents dandruff and provides natural protein which will form a protective coating on hair, so that air will look soft, healthy and radiant.
This is very generous of Mivva for giving more than enough amount of samples for their subscribers. They give 5 packs of shampoo and 5 packs of conditioners so that's 10 in total. 2 are missing in the picture because I've used it :D I tried this for about 3-4 washes. Though it cleans the scalp well, it is a little drying for me. But the conditioner brings back the moisture to my hair so it balance it out. My hair feels smooth after conditioning but not as smooth as I wanted. I feel the two work best together.
Timeless Truth Charcoal Deep Whitening Mask (Full Size)
RM 10 per piece
- Whitening (prevent dark pigment), Reduce Freckles, Moisturizing, Soft Glowing Skin. The black color of the mask comes from bamboo charcoal extract from very high temperature (around 800'C), and this particular bamboo charcoal powder has a proven function for cleansing and absorbing dirt off.
I'm excited to try this out, but saving it for a special occasion ;D
O'slee Rosehip Beauty Solution Advance Formula III
RM 59.90 for 100 ml
- Contains 7 enhanced Skin Care benefits. Moisturizing,whitening, UV-oxi protection, pore-refining & blackhead reducing, enhance absorption ability,relaxing, multifunction. You can use it for toning, make-up base, soothing, deep moisturizing and as a body lotion.
The best thing about this in my opinion is the smell! It smells heavenly! Like "sirap" or rose water. If I could drink it I would! LOL My skin is adjusting to it, so I can't say for sure if it is suitable for me or not. I do wish it is though haha.
Beautymate Purifying and Brightening Nano Essence (Full Size)
RM 69.90 for 30 ml
- Contains Gentiana Lutea Root Extract and Black Pearl Extract. Use together with BeautyMate Purifying and Brightening Nano Toner and Lotion to leave skin fair, smooth, fleckless and delicate. Gentiana Lutea Root Extract and Black Pearl Extract can effectively brighten and hydrate skin and minimize melanin and spots, relieve dull skin tone and prevent new formation of melanin for thorough whitening results.
This is one of the products that I can't believe I got. I really love the Beautymate Purifying and Brightening Nano Lotion! When I read the instructions it says best applied after the essence and I was like "Aww, if only I have the essence" and of course I jumped for joy when I received this! I do feel this essence helps to boost the lotion. My skin feels plumed and brightens a little with this combination. I can't believe it but because of this essence, I'm enjoying my daily skin care routine :)
B.liv Off With Those Heads
RM 139 for 30 ml / RM 179.90 for 45 ml
- Off With Those Heads removes white & blackheads without violence or pain, and stops them from appearing ever again. The gel softens the clogging blocking your pores, allowing for effortless extraction and removal of all sores. Its essence ingredients keep oil secretions under control, and skin irritation will never again rule!
I have problems with white heads so I was excited to try this product! And I also can't believe I got it because I missed it in the Vanity Trove February Box. After about a week of using it, I do realize my white heads are a little less and not as noticeable anymore :)
Ok, lets quickly summarize this month's Mivva Box so I can share a surprise with you guys!
Overall, like I said, I feel like Mivva is trying to top themselves every month! There are two things however that I noticed. The first one is the expiry dates for the Beautymate Brightening & Purifying Nano Skin Care. All expires this August, so I'm not sure if I can finish them up by then >.< I actually didn't notice this until Fiona from Street Love mentioned it in her review. Thanks for sharing dear! The other thing is the new dateline for reviews. I think it's alright to keep track of customers' reviews, just that sometimes, we like to save some products for special occasions. Or sometimes, it takes time for us to change our skin care or hair care routine. Plus, the dateline kinda give a little pressure that it might not be fun anymore >.< Anyway, I am happy about this month's box and I hope that I'll be mind blown again for next month's Mivva Box :D
Now on to the surprise!
|Mivva Special Edition Box - Arty Professional :D|
So Mivva held a Special Edition Arty Professional Box giveaway contest for their subscribers and I won! *jumps over pluto*
Mivva had an extra Special Edition Box from their collaboration with Arty Professional. It was an invite-only bloggers event on 19 January 2013. Even during the event they only had 3 Special Edition boxes to giveaway! I feel so lucky *tears*
All of the products are full size! And this what I won :D
Arty Professional Sparkling Primer
RM 120 for 30 ml
- Light diffusing sparkling primer that produces a soft radiant glow from within to diminish skin dullness with a luminous dewy complexion. Contains pearlescent extracts to capture and reflect light, blurring the appearance of fine lines instantly.
This is one of their star products! I think I'm going to use this as a highlight because as someone with oily skin, I tend to stay away from dewy, luminous or sparkling finish. It might be a good primer for eyeshadow as well because I noticed it enhances the colors I put over it.
Arty Professional Natural Matte Liquid Foundation SPF 35
RM 90 for 20 ml
- A lightweight oil-free natural matte finish fluid foundation that blends smoothly and evenly with buildable coverage. Helps minimise imperfections, evens out skin tone and provides protection against the sun.
Now this is what I am most excited about! I'm a foundation freak and I love my makeup with a flawless look, be it light or full coverage. I fell in love with this foundation instantly! From a swatch, it is lightweight and gives a flawless finish. I can't wait to give this one a try! I think I may have just found my new best friend :D
Arty Professional Nudy Lip Color in P4 Vienna
RM 55 for 3.3 ml
- The ultimate lip indulgence in a lightweight creamy texure for a contemporary natural look. Infused with micro-pigments to ensure a smooth application with hydrating Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Vitamin E and Palmitoyl Oligopeptite for healthier supple looking lips.
Honestly, I didn't think I would like this lipstick, just because it didn't look too flattering for me from the picture in the product description but when I swatched it, Oh My God. It is the prettiest nude pink lip color I have ever seen! It is perfect for heavy or natural eye look. I never really like to carry lipstick around, just lip gloss, but I think this little beauty and I are going to do a lot of travelling together :D
Arty Professional Liquid Eyeliner (Waterproof) in Gloss Black
RM 40 for 7 ml
- Extra fine brush tip aids drawing a line incredibly easy even for novice. Waterproof, smudge-proof and non-fade formula quickly dries to stay for hours.
My favorite eyeliner is liquid eyeliner, so is this going to be another favorites? :P I love the brush tip, it is very soft. I don't think it is suitable for beginners because the brush tip is a little long and it takes some getting used to. It actually feels a little creamier than liquid and I do notice it dries up pretty fast too.
Arty Professional Bronzing Powder
RM 115 for 45 g
- A silky smooth bronzing powder that makes getting glam-and-tan downright delicious. Comes with a touch of gold shimmer fusion that is ideal for creating a luminous sun-kissed glow on both the face and body instantly.
Lol, this is such a large size product! I think you really get your money's worth with this. This can last you for a long time! I do love the finish, it's coppery bronze in color and it kinda smells delicious too :P I tried to contour with it and it looks so beautiful *floats away* I know Malaysian trend is all whitening and stuff but I love the sun kissed glow look. If you can pull it off well then it will look absolutely stunning!
Thank you again Mivva for such a generous gift! I am still speechless and in the clouds right now. I don't think I will get tired of saying thank you over and over again :D
