August 2013 Black Box

The weekend is finally here!
And this morning, I received my long awaited Black Box!

For those who are unfamiliar with Black Box, it’s a free bi-monthly subscription box, the first in Singapore, that contains a mix of things for all. The samples/products ranges from lifestyle goodies, food samples to coupons and beauty samples. There’s always something for everyone.

So seeing that the last box was in May, this box should have been out and about in July. But due to overwhelming responses and the fact that they wanted to accomodate more subscribers, they delayed the box for a month and if you’re in the list, it should reach you latest by early September 🙂

So lets get to it!




Curiosity Satisfied? Let’s find out!

First look:


And a closer look at the note:


And tada! What’s wrapped up:


Generous no?
Well, now a closer look at each product….

1) Dettol Radiance Body Wash


Dettol Radiance Body Wash

I was truly surprised when I saw this in the box, I love Dettol products and this is a pretty decent-sized bottle!
Plus, it smells wonderful!!

2) Darlie Expert White


Darlie Expert White

This was also a good size!
It is said to “help whiten teeth, remove stains, dental plaque and tartar“. Will give it a try once I’m done with my current one.

3) Glucoscare Tea


Glucoscare Tea

A natural herbal tea that is proven to lower sugar absorption in the body.
I’m not too big of a fan for herbal tea… so perhaps I’d share this with my mom instead.

4) Purer Skin Miracle Serum


Purer Skin Miracle Serum

A miracle serum! Supposedly to help “reduce fine lines and wrinkles”. And it’s said to be made with “100% Pure Bird’s Nest”. Wowzas!
Question is…. would it work?

5) Zappy Sampler Pack


Zappy Sampler Pack

Opening the package, and there’s one of each:


Zappy Sun System Sunscreen Wipes (this looks interesting!), Zappy After-Sports Wipes, Zappy Boy Antiseptic Wipes, Zappy Boy Alcohol Wipes, Zappy Insect Repellent Wipes.

And the coupons….


So there you have it. 5 products, all free.
They have also included this insert which not only describes the products, but also tells you where to get them and how much they are.


So what do you think of this month’s Black Box?


You can subscribe to their next one over at their website.

Did you receive the previous Black Box? How does this compare? Let me know 🙂

Till next time~

  1. hi! i received the same products as you and I felt that this month’s blackbox is pretty lacking. I had previously received the May edition and it was so much better! ): Have you read those reviews on the blackbox others received in July? it certainly looked a lot better I feel.

    • Hi Christina! I didn’t know there was a July one till you mentioned it! Did you post about your May one? I will have to check it out 🙂 well I guess for a free box it’s not too shabby. Guess we’ll hafta wait and see the next one… btw, I read that in past months, by completing the survey that they send, you will then be eligible for the next box. But…this month…seems to be different?
