I have seen what was in Mivva September 2013 and it was pretty exciting because it comes with a pair of contact lens, brushes and a few promising items! I was given a chance to review this month’s box and this will be my first review on Mivva box.
If you haven’t knew about Mivva yet, they are one of the beauty box subscriptions available in Malaysia and not long ago, they have adopted a brand new box design. The box is mostly shaded in black is very exclusive and elegant. With silver polka dots, it adds cuteness and glam to the box. Let’s get into the box!
Once open, I was greeted with card that includes the means of this month’s box as well as the products included in the box. For the October 2013 box is all about achieving the fair and flawless complexion.
Before revealing all of the goodies, they are protected with a black sheet of paper with Mivva’s sticker on it. Once I removed the sticker, tadaaaa! This is Mivva October 2013 box and let’s go through each item carefully.
Unico Pearl Scar Cream (7grams/ 0.24oz)
The unique re-whitening formula contains strong combination of active ingredients and technology that designed to reveal a true luminous complexion along with distinct attention to correct existing dark spots and prevents new ones from forming. Your pearl-perfect complexion looks smooth and radiant all day long.
This comes in a decent amount to sample upon but I have yet to come across this brand, a local brand based in Johor. It’s also something I would try as I do have open pores and post acne spots. Its cream textured and tinted which through the swatch I think it doesn’t leave any white cast but if you have darker skin tone, this tint may not be suitable for you. After blending it, it does feel very rich but once absorbed, it has that light powdery finish. Since this is tinted, my concern is whether it is advisable to use it at night because there isn’t any information on such.

Hydra 24 Cracked Heel Cream (10grams)
Hydra 24 offers 100% plant-derived elements to ensure instant and long lasting hydration. It provides a healing system that works both on and under the surface of your skin. It also enriched moisture-reservoir seals in the application all day long. It is bio-based natural moisturizer with light, non-oily formula with proven anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant ingredients.
Its been a while since I use cracked heel cream and I used to have such problem before. My heels are no longer getting cracked but they are still dry. This cream is really thick and the consistency is similar to balm textures. After blending in, it does feel hydrated and has slight stickiness. Although it contains fragrance, I couldn’t smell any scent.
ONL Oceaniq 3D Antiwrinkle Total Solution CC SPF30/PA++
Sticky liposome technology for 3D colume elastic care. Energetic volume color control cream to immediately solve skin care + make-up problems and brighten, clean and purify skin. Toner + essence + lotion + primer + BB at once!
This is something new to me, its like an on-the-go product especially during the day when you need to just slam on something on your face real quick to get every benefit from the skin care products. My concern is if this cream would be too nourishing that could result in excess oiliness.

Pure natural recipe for mild yet powerful hydrating and glossy care. The products contains nopal cactus and aqua-holder complex open the moisture pathways of the skin as well as brighten and whiten it. It is suitable for people who want a brightening moisture skin full of grain nutrients.
They came in very cute bottles and each is 5ml. The toner does has that slight alcohol scent while the emulsion smells just lovely with refreshing flower scent. This is also promising and great to use it at night since the ONL Oceaniq 3D Antiwrinkle Total Solution CC SPF30/PA++ does all the job during the day.

Full Sized Price: MYR 49.90 (7 pieces)
I would say this is quite a handful box but ONL products came slightly smaller than the rest. Best of all is to be able to receive a full sized product which is the Secretleaf Argan Hydrating Cleanser. With my skin concern of acne and oiliness, I would still use most of the products in this box because whitening is my second priority in my skin concern. Considering that the price of the subscription isn’t too hefty, I think this is quite worthy!
