AMW Reviews: The SaladBox

Happy Hump Day AMW friends!
Have you been reading blogs from other countries like the US?  Malaysia?  Singapore?  Have you once asked yourself why they get these gorgeous beauty boxes delivered to their homes and wished we have the same?

*raises head up to the sky*  THANK YOU for answering my prayers!  Beauty Box subscription is finally here!  No need to drool on computer screen on other people's boxes as you can have your own delivered straight to your doorstep!


The SaladBox
SaladBox says ---
SaladBox is a monthly beauty and lifestyle subscription service.  Subscribers will receive a box with four to five beauty and lifestyle sample products that are specifically handpicked for them.  These samples come from up-and coming brands and timeless classics. 

AMW says ---
Pros
  • There are 5 plans to choose from in which some of the plan helps save you more money!
  • I was expecting a huge box with tiny contents, I'm glad the company helps save the environment with a box that is compact in size.
  • You get to try different brands without spending too much.  
  • Gift vouchers are also available to help save you money for your next "full sized" purchase.
Cons
  • You may end up getting a box of products you're not interested in.
  • If you are the type who's iffy with knowing where exactly your money goes, the surprise may be stressful for you!
Overall
This is the best way to sample products.  Some months may be worth the Php500.00 paid while other months may not!  Think of it as gambling! :P  Legal gambling!

Tips
  • Visit www.saladbox.com.ph  and check which My SaladBox Plans suits you.
  • If you are unsure on which plan to choose, I strongly suggest to start on Monthly Recurring and unsubscribe anytime you feel the service is not for you.
  • Of course, if you want to save more, subscribe for 6 months or 1 year plan and if the products you received aren't for you, feel free to save them and give them as gifts for friends and family! 
  • Save the box and the tissue inside the box for future use.  I strongly suggest to help save the environment!
Will I repurchase?
If I'm not a beauty blogger who receives sample products every now and then, I wouldn't mind trying the 6 months subscription.

To whom do I recommend this to?
You who loves trying out testers and are adventurous to try different products and brands.

Where to purchase and how much?
Visit www.saladbox.com.ph for rates but the most basic package starts at Php500.00/month.

Now let's take a peek on my first SaladBox!


The first SaladBox includes --- 
  • Full-size 50 ml Hot Shop Heaven Pour Femme-Heaven Php400.00 (approx $9.52)
  • BC Fragrance Relaxing Mint Pillow Mist in Travel Size
  • Camaru Naturals Bamboo Charcoal Clarifying Soap in 135g in Full-size Php150.00 (approx $3.60)
  • Natura All-Naturals Argan Cheek Lip Stik in Full-size Php150.00 (approx $3.60)


So far, the first SaladBox goes beyond the amount of Php500.00.  The box is a lovely surprise for me as the only brand that I know of before receiving the box is BC Fragrance.  I'm glad the first box that arrived to my doorstep is dedicated to Filipino Pride!

The scent goes to my sister, the pillow mist goes to my mom, the Bamboo Charcoal soap is for Mr. AMW and the Argan Cheek Lip Stick is for me!

  4. Contents of the box are supposed to vary depending on the person right?

    1. I believe they depend on the month! Maybe there will be some slight changes from one box to another (lets say the fragrance of the scent) but so far, I think the contents are the same for everyone per month :)

    1. I know Tine I know! We food lovers do have that tendency to think about food at once! LOL

  9. It looks disappointing. I was hoping for nicer, less cheap-looking samples. I ordered a box for next month. If they don't have anything I'd use on a daily basis I'll probably cancel my subscription and get Glamour Box instead. That said, I like the box's packaging!

    1. Hi Arianne, well I guess that's why I put it on CON as it is indeed personal preference. Some people may like these types of products while some wouldn't agree! I respect your thoughts! I hope you get a better one next month!!! :D Let me know ok?

  10. Oh man. I seriously wanted to get that soap in my SaladBox! Too bad the October box wasn't as great as yours :(
