What's new: SM Beauty Box

24 July 2013

Do you know that queasy feeling when you're hiding a really good secret and you're bursting to tell it? And that wonderful feeling of relief when you finally get to announce it to the world? I felt the former for more than two weeks until reprieve came yesterday. I've been dying to tell you about the SM Beauty Box and now that we have already sent them out and they have already been received by the right recipients, I can finally breathe freely and show you how awesome it is!

The first time my boss mentioned this to me, she said it was huge. She wasn't kidding! I actually thought it was a box for a big birthday cake the first time I saw it!

Here's another photo with my left hand (with matching pink nails, hee) for scale
The SM Beauty Box brings the thrill of discovery to beauty buyers. Yes, aside from having it all for you, SM also knows beauty. It contains a bevy of beauty must-haves, both for physical beauty and for inner allure. While some of the products included in the package are primping and preening essentials, others take personal care to a new level by promoting skin and general health. It is truly a beauty product variety package like no other!

A peek at the products inside:

Here is a list of the products inside together with some of my notes:

  • Palty Hair Color in Caramel Sauce In the two times I DIY-colored my hair, I used Richenna and Lolane. This will be the first time I'll use Palty and I'm very excited because I've read a lot of nice things about it.
  • Opal Virgin Coconut plus Aloe Vera Hot Oil Cream Conditioner This is perfect for me because I try to pamper my hair to a DIY hot oil treatment every two weeks.
  • Lucido-L Hair Make Supplement I'm not really sure if I can use this for myself since I don't curl my short hair anymore so I guess I'll just give it to one of my friends.
  • Vitress Hair Solutions Hair Cuticle Coat
  • Nanny Rose's Gugo & Lawat Anti-Hairfall Shampoo This is going to my dad hehe.
  • Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Micro-Scruplting Eye Cream and Lash Serum Duo This went to my friend/ officemate Rica. She's going to review it for a guest post in my blog, yay!
  • Snail Age Regenerating Multi-step Treatment It is admittedly a little weird when you think of snails on your face, but I've been seeing a lot of this in skincare trends recently. Might be worth a try.
  • FINE Metabo Coffee
  • Purederm Make-up Cleansing Tissues Perfect for those nights I am too tired to wash my makeup off my face!
  • Purederm Exfoliating Foot Mask This is going to my mom
  • Snake Brand Prickly Heat Cooling Powder Martha and Kira have good things to say about this so I guess I'll give it a try.
  • Skinklens Gentle Skin Cleanser Kira said this is a good substitute for Cetaphil.
  • EVAS Vitamin Hand I love that it comes in Lemon!
  • Quick FX Pimple Eraser
  • Quick FX Eyelift Cream
  • Quick FX No-Shine Mattifier
  • Quick FX Tinted Moisturizer
  • Flormar Magnetic Twist Nail Enamel I've been seeing magnetic nail polish from other brands and although I was intrigued, I never got around to buying one. I am excited to try this!
  • Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss I have waaaay too many lip glosses and only one mouth so this is going to one of my friends hehe.
  • Beyond Care Skin Moisturizing Body Wash
  • Beyond Care Skin Moisturizing Body Lotion
If you buy the items separately, it would cost you more than P4,000. The Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Ageing Micro-Scruplting Eye Cream and Lash Serum Duo alone costs at least P1,500! But here's the best part about the SM Beauty Box: you can get EVERYTHING for only P799! What a steal! If you were me, wouldn't you feel as frustrated as I was that you couldn't share this great news to your friends straightaway??


The SM Beauty Box will be available at The SM Store Beauty Sections in SM Makati, SM Megamall, SM Mall of Asia, and SM North EDSA for a limited run beginning August 1.

Which one is your favorite among the box's contents? Will you be getting one when it comes out? ☆


  1. really excited about this! Thanks for sharing :D

  2. Balak ko pa naman bumili ng Palty!! This one is a better deal! :D I'm guessing, di pwede pumili ng shade?

  3. The brands/ contents are the same, but colors may vary. But they're all nice naman based on the swatches hihi. Would've preferred mine to be red, though. :)

  4. no fair! it's not available in cebu? :( sayang naman. hehe.

  5. Maybe if it's well-accepted then they will think of bringing it to more areas? I'll let you know agad if I get news :D

  6. hehe. thanks, krissy. it would've been nice if it was available here as well. i'd definitely fork out PHP799 for a box with all those contents. :) hopefully it'll be a hit there.

  7. This spells a L-O-T!!

  8. i bought one. however, my box didn't have the coffee and foot mask :(


Comments brighten up my day! Thank you for leaving kind words!
