Pink Box octombrie 2013

Am primit si eu intr-un final Pink Box de octombrie dupa ce am tot citit comentariile unor fete dezamagite, pentru ca nu toata lumea a primit serumul sau nu stiu ce e chestia aia de par de la CHI. Eu am primit-o ūüė¶ Eu fac comanda cam la inceputul lunii si poate au pus serumul acela doar pentru primii care au comandat, incercati sa faceti lucrul asta data viitoare. Dar hai sa va zic ce facem, calculam cat costa fiecare produs si vedem daca am fost fraierite sau nu.

I finally got the¬†October¬†pink box, which, in Romania, is like a birchbox/beauty box/ any sort of box with samples and maybe full size products. People got really annoyed by this month’s box, but i’m gonna do the math and see if we made a good deal or not. For reference i’ll convert¬†Romanian¬†currency to…i dunno…dollars i guess.¬†

Primul lucru : Elmiplant Colour Correction Cream, CC Cream, cu pigmenti minerali si gutuie, nuanta deschisa, cu SPF 20. Miroase un pic ciudat, a produse Elmiplant, dar imi place cum intra in piele si se uniformizeaza, asta la primul test. Aveam de gand s-o cumpar asa ca nu ma deranjeaza ca am primit-o in pink box, un drum mai putin la supermarket. Pret full size: 17 lei, 50 ml.

First product is this CC Cream from a Romanian brand, Elmiplant, and it’s a Colour Correction cream, with SPF 20, mineral pigments, paraben free and quince extract, yuuum. I like how it blends, i’ll test it out, was gonna buy it anyway so i’m glad it was in here. Full size price: ¬†5.18 dollars, 50 ml.¬†

Mostra de parfum Katy Perry Killer Queen, un parfum nonconformist si rebel aparent, note de pruna, bergamota si fructe de padure, yuuum…nu chiar, e ok ca miros, dar nu e nimic special, eu un parfum mai greoi un pic, nu l-as purta vara de exemplu, dar nu ma impresioneaza. 50 ml costa 154.9 lei, asa ca 1.5 ml costa 4.6 lei.¬†

On with the samples!!! Katy Perry Killer Queen perfume sample, described as a rebel, nonconformist perfume…hey, if you want a killer queen, or even better queen killing queen, call it Elizabeth …you know, Mary Queen of Scots? No? Ok…not funny, i know. I don’t hate this scent, i don’t love it either, it’s a meh, strong, sorta sweet but not vomiting sweet scent. It’s ok. Full size: 47.17 $ for 50 ml so the sample is 1.4 $ for 1.5 ml.¬†

Mai departe: mostre Vichy Idealia Life Serum, 9 bucati, fiecare a cate 1,5 ml, ceea ce face ca produsul in sine sa ajunga la aproape jumatate din gramajul serumului in magazin, ceea ce e ok, dar Doamne Dumnezule, am mai avut inca 15 si inca mai trag de ele ….revenind: full sizeu-ul e 169 de lei pt 30 ml, mostrele ajung la 76.05 lei…binisor, nu?

Bruno Vasari crema antistress pt toate tipurile de ten, cu oligoelemente si vitamine, nu simt sa aiba miros puternic, e light, n-am mai incercat vreodata, poate e ok, dar ma indoiesc ca o sa cumpar full size de 50 ml, care e 124 de lei, deci tubul de 5 ml ajunge la 12.4 lei. 

CHI Rx Moisture Therapy Рser pt restructurare, protejeaza de caldura, hidrateaza, etc, etc. OK, e interesant, eu m-am entuziasmat mai mult sincer de CC Elmiplant. Pentru 14 ml nu cred ca va ajunge mai mult de 2, poate 3 folosiri, si nu intentionez sa-l cumpar, am prea multe produse de par si credinciosul ulei de cocos ca sa mai iau si asa ceva. Full size: 63 de lei la 59 ml, mostra de 14 ml la 14.9 lei. 

More samples: Vichy Idealia Life Serum, 9 of them which is insane because i just had 15 of these in my bathroom and i decided to pour them all in this¬†moisturizer¬†glass recipient because i hate sample packs, there’s more than just for one use there and i don’t like to just open it and leave it there dripping and getting dry and disgusting…so yeah, i’m still trying to finish those and now i have 9 more, yey. Full size product is 51.47 $ for 30 ml, and the samples total is 23.16 $ for about 13.5 ml which is cool.¬†

Bruno Vasari Antistress moisturizer with oligoelements and vitamins, it’s very light, smells really faint of something, full size of 50 ml is 37.7 $, this little tube of 5 ml is 3.7 $ obviously.¬†

Next, a hair serum, CHI Rx Moisture Therapy, heat protective, with silk extract, makes hair shiny, etc, etc. I’ll try it, i won’t buy it cause i have lots of hair oils and hair heat sprays and hair stuff so yeah… Full size at 59 ml is 19.19 $, and the small 14 ml sample is 4.54 $.¬†

IMG_9081 si ultima mostra de Elmiplant Genovate crema antirid cu SPF 15, o s- o incerc, imi plac produsele antirid si la gama asta chiar s-au straduit sa o faca sa arate mai bine cumva.

Last sample is of a anti wrinkle moisturizer also from the Romanian brand, Elmiplant, this does not go into the price list, so it’s 0 $.¬†

TOTAL: am dat 44 de lei pe pink box, produsele din ea insumeaza 124.9 lei.

TOTAL: I paid 13.4 $ on the box, i got 38.4 $ worth of product. 

E ok zic eu, daca nu calculam nu ne dam seama exact daca merita sau nu, eu sincer nu am o preferinta anume doar pentru branduri scumpe, asa e usor si pt cei de la pink box sa isi justifice cei 14 ml de serum CHI ca mostra bagati aici pentru ca full size e 63 de lei pt 59 de ml, ceea ce mi se pare enorm cumva. Daca ar promova produse mai ieftine, ar putea sa ofere mostre mai grase si babane. Cutia asta mi s-a parut mult mai ok decat cea de luna trecuta de exemplu, cu apa de frumusete sau de acum 2 luni, cu discuri demachiante :))

I liked this month’s box, apparently it proves i also got my money’s worth, and I am excited about the CC cream the most.
