Weekend News: fabulous finds – The First Beauty Box Subscription in Malaysia for RM35 per Month

by xin on June 30, 2012

Fabous Finds Box

Seen so many beauty boxes in other countries? Finally there is one in Malaysia!

I was rather thrilled to know that it is rather affordable price of RM35/month/box, and shipping is free too for Malaysian addresses.

Curious to find out what’s in it?

What’s FABULOUSFINDS all about?

Put simply, we are a beauty box subscription service – the first Malaysian beauty box. For only
RM35 per month, we send out 4 – 5 deluxe beauty samples from high-end and niche brands to our
subscribers throughout Malaysia. These beauty miniatures are lovingly packed in a luxurious box and
couriered to addresses all over Malaysia.

Founder of Fabulous Finds

The mastermind behind fabulous finds, is a young and vibrant lady – Hui Ling.

She has a very charming personality, and she reads this blog too :D

Launch of Fabulous Finds

It’s heart warming to learn that this is not just a beauty box, it is also a passion towards our community, especially for women causes.  The packing is done by less fortunate women (single mothers or widows), and they will be able to earn some livings from the income.  I am ashamed that I almost never thought of the less fortunate people in our society.

Fabulous Finds Box Content

Packed in a pink with melon hue hard box, the content is well wrapped, completed with a ribbon.

I have practiced the ribbon tying still for multiple times, but I could never get it right.

Fabulous Finds July Box

The overall content of the July box. I am glad to see a full size of Crabtree & Evelyn handcream in the box, ’cause I am big on hand creams! I have a tube of handcream in almost every handbag so I will never have to suffer when I need it.

Apart from that, there are also 2 deluxe samples from Beaubelle ( a local beauty saloon brand). The trial size of the Benefit Porefessional is quite substantial for a sample, and it can definitely last a while because you only need a little to apply, and also a Lunasol Powder Foundation.

The box also contains a note of how to use the individual products, which will be useful since the instructions usually are not printed on samples. There are also a RM10 Burt’s Bee voucher for purchase of RM100 and above.

The details of the box are as follow:

(i) Beaubelle: CLARITY brightening cleansing exfoliator
(ii) Beaubelle: GORGEOUS Multi Defence Protection Cream
(iii)Burt’s Bees: Cranberry & Promegranate Scrub
(iv) Burt’s Bees: Milk & Honey Body Lotion
(v) Burt’s Bees: Sensitive Daily Moisturising Cream
(vi) Benefit Cosmetics: The POREfessional
(vii)Crabtree & Evelyn: Iris Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy
(viii)Lunasol: Skin Fusing Powder Foundation
(ix)Shu Uemura: Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil

Overall Thoughts:

Initially, I was really excited when I got to learn the concept of beauty box. Then after few months down the road, I think I got bored of the concept of ‘receiving samples’ on a monthly basis. It might be good for most of the people who don’t usually haul beauty products, so they are able to try out different brands.

Another idea – it might be a good idea to also include the price of a full size item as extra information.

Having that said, it might be an interesting idea to send someone a box monthly, or 3 months for their birthday! It will make you a really thoughtful person :)

Options for gift – for 3, 6 or 12 months:-

 (i) 3-month subscription (RM105)

(ii) 6-month subscription (RM210)

(iii) 12-month subscription (RM420)

There are only 180 boxes for July so place your subscription now, and the boxes will be shipped out on 15th July 2012!

I am quite curious to see the August box, and perhaps I will get a 3-months subscription for myself as a gift! ;)

Price: RM35/month

I think the price is really nice. =) Bellabox has increased my Singapore subscription to S$20 per month. =((

And I do like that you girls get to go beautiful and still contribute to a meaningful cause for the community. =) I always feel like these beauty boxes (while fulfilling the market demands) are really just people wanting to jump on some bandwagon and get rich quick, and run away. haha.

I like the stuff in this issue. I would definitely use the hand cream and the Clarity thing.

I wouldn’t mind subscribing if I’m living there! I love samples and that’s how I gauge if the product works for me or not :) :)

I was very excited when Glossybox came to Japan but their boxes def have a focus on skincare which is not so great for those who are obsessed with makeup like me. This new FF one looks promising…they even put in Lunasol and Benefit…nice!
