Unboxing Saladbox (October 2012)

8 comments
My SaladBox finally arrived last Monday!  I've been waiting for his box for almost a month!  I thought the box would come on the first week of the month.  As it turns out, boxes are shipped on the third week of the month.  I don't know, it kinda seems weird to me cos you actually have less than a month to review what's inside the box.

But what is SaladBox anyway?  It's a beauty subscription (for PhP500 monthly) wherein you will receive a box every month containing about 4-5 beauty products.  You wouldn't know what is inside until you actually receive yours.  So, expect to be surprised and probably a bit disappointed at the same time (if you don't like the products you receive). However, the products that will be sent to you is also based on the your answers from their questionnaire.  SaladBox is the first beauty subscription service in the Philippines.

So what's inside my SaladBox this October?


Love that mint green color!


total of 8 products inside!

List of the products inside my SaladBox

Virginia Olsen Mineral Eyeshadows

BC Spiced Fig Tea room Spray

Camaru Naturals Bamboo Charcoal Soap


Sakura Foam Hand Sanitizer

Black Beauty Shampoo (sachets)


I subscribed to SaladBox because I've always liked the idea of a beauty subscription service.  This isn't actually a new idea.  It's been happening for awhile in the USA.  I've also seen a lot of makeup gurus on YouTube showing what they receive monthly.  There's Jewelmint, Ipsy, to name a few.

Honestly, I was a bit disappointed with my first SaladBox.  The only product that got me excited when I first opened it was the Virgina Olsen mineral eyeshadows BUT the colors given to me killed my excitement.  I'm not partial to the colors.  I will probably use it for video tutorials only.  But let's see how the colors will fare on my skin.  I've seen the shades that other people received and they received better and more wearable shades.  I'm thinking that the foam hand sanitizer will be useful to me on my trip to Korea and Hong Kong this year.  It will certainly come handy.  But then again, I could also just bring an alcogel that's more handy (size speaking) than the foam hand sanitizer.  The organic soap is blah.  I'm not really in dire need to try a new soap.  But I'm forcing myself to use the soap any day now just because I don't wanna add it up on the things that I haven't used until now.  But it's organic, so it should be good, right?  The room spray and shampoo sachets were definitely a miss.  Seriously, that little for a room spray?  I don't even think it would be enough to give my room that aroma that it's promising.  And for the shampoo, really a sachet?  That only costs PhP10-15!  If I try to add everything that I received, it seems to me that they are worth less than PhP500 or even Php455 (less the shipping fee).  Maybe that's why they include two bottles of the foam sanitizer.

I said on my Unboxing video that I will review the products before the month ends.  But after giving it some thought, I probably won't.  If you don't see any reviews of the products here on my blog, then I probably didn't like it.

Here's to hoping that November's SaladBox is going to be way better than October's!

  1. I was really excited when I heard about the saladbox but after seeing this I think I won't subscribe at all. The items are way TOO disappointing >_< But I will change my mind if they added MORE makeups in their future boxes =) I just saw 2 new subscription services in line which are Glamourbox and SampleRoom. I won't expect high hopes but I wish they could do better than saladbox. Thanks for sharing the unboxing ^_~

  6. Saladbox is a super waste of money. I calculated the actual price of the contents and it was 387.50 pesos. Saladbox is such a rip-off! I asked for a refund because the October box was so shitty but they said they could only give me 300 pesos credit in their store AND they said I couldn't grasp the concept of their pricing when I accused them of misleading advertising. :0
