BlackBox August Edition – The Beauty Prologue Exclusive Pack
This August, we go back to basics. Because we lack the luxury of time to try out every single product, sometimes we compromise our needs and use just 1 product for everything.
But what happens when you have an ALL IN ONE pack to address both your needs and wants? And you wouldn’t believe the price (a total steal)! To be revealed at the end of this post
As the pictures above, the Beauty Prologue Exclusive Pack consists of a bottle of TruLife Bird’s Nest, the Uriage Thermal Water (Eau Thermale D’Uriage), Pearlie White Fluorinze Alcohol Free Fluoride Mouth Rinse, Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Concentrate, Tsubaki Extra Moist Shampoo and Conditioner, Mores White Booster Plus+ and Mores 2 Eyes Sleeping Eye Mask.
I have tried all the products and absolutely love them! I’m amazed how each and every product targets a specific part of my body, health or well being, and yet so thoughtfully put together in a nice Black Box. Great for travel if you have no time to think of what to pack, because these are really the bare essentials.
TruLife Bird’s Nest with Rock Sugar
We all know the benefits of bird’s nest, especially for various health benefits. TruLife Bird’s Nest is cleaned by hand, brewed and bottled in Singapore. There’s nothing better than a home-brewed bird’s nest. I love the fact that it’s 100% genuine bird’s nest, authentic, and only lightly sweetened, with no colouring, preservatives or artificial flavouring added. And for those who are into organic foods, TruLife practices organic farming methods and simply presents their products in their most natural form.
One of the ways I like to reward myself after a tough day is to pamper myself with a nourishing bottle of bird’s nest, served chilled. It is refreshing, energizing, and my personal beauty drink, at least once a week. A great bonus if there is a high concentration of smooth, natural bird’s nest in the bottle
Best to consume in the morning or before bedtime. It can be consumed chilled or warm. Take one bottle daily.

Uriage Thermal Water (Eau Thermale D’Uriage)
Dehydration is one main cause of premature aging, sagging and lifeless skin. Hence, we are always emphasizing on hydrating our body and skin to maintain a youthful look. If you are an OL like me, trapped in an air-conditioned environment for long hours all day and every day, you may be prone to dehydrated skin if it is not well taken care of. Besides drinking plenty of water, bring along a facial mist wherever you go and occasionally give your face a refreshing and hydrating spray. A little effort goes a long way, and watch how your skin laps up the moisture and hydrates itself inside out!
Uriage Thermal Water strengthens the skin barrier, preserves the balance of skin cells and prevents the dehydration of the epidermis. As it is isotonic, it acts in perfect osmosis with the skin. For all skin types and suitable for infants, adult and even sensitive skin.
To me, it’s always a happy moment spraying my face with the Uriage Thermal Water, because I feel so alive and recharged right after, especially knowing that my skin is well-hydrated and moisturised.
Spray directly on face or skin as frequently as desired. No need to pat or wipe away after spraying. Allow your skin to absorb the minerals and trace elements entirely.

Pearlie White Fluorinze Alcohol Free Fluoride Mouth Rinse
Who doesn’t like to smell good and feel fresh, even on the “inside”? Don’t we tend to neglect how our breath smells?
Fluoride mouth rinse is the last step to oral cleansing after brushing your teeth. It helps to reduce cavities and periodontal disease – a highly essential product for better oral hygiene and a fresher breath!
Gentle and safe for everyday use, the Pearlie White Fluorinze Alcohol Free Fluoride Mouth Rinse destroys plaque-causing bacteria, relieves tooth sensitivity and strengthens your tooth enamel with its added ingredients like Tea Tree Oil and Thymol. It is free from harsh ingredients like SLS, Parabens and Saccharin.
I’m crazy about oral hygiene and never fail to brush my teeth before bed no matter how exhausted I am. I’ll also spare no effort in making my teeth and mouth extra clean and plague-free by using a mouth rinse after brushing my teeth, or after meals. This product is just right in terms of its “taste”, not too strong such that it burns my mouth. I even thought that my morning breath feels/smells more pleasant after using the mouth rinse!

Hand Chemistry Hyaluronic Concentrate
Hand Chemistry welcomes the next generation, the 19% active Marine Hyaluronic Complex, with results proven to be 400x more hydrating than Hyaluronic Acid alone. Unlike the 90% purity of most products in the market, this gel treatment contains 99.5% pure Hyaluronic Acid.
Lacking elasticity, textural damage and dehydration are the most obvious signs of skin ageing. While we all know the benefits of using anti-aging ingredients when it comes to face care, other age revealing areas such as the hands, décolletage and body are often left neglected.
Hand Chemistry’s Hyaluronic Concentrate promises to deliver highly active, anti-ageing ingredients to all areas of hands and body, ensuring that the skin remains plump, hydrated and happy. I use it mostly like a hand sanitizer, as I like feeling clean (no stickiness) without drying them out too much. Hand Chemistry does just that, and I enjoy the smoothness of the gel – though it does not have a floral/fruity scent that I usually prefer in the products I use.
Apply evenly to hands and body twice or more daily for well hydrated, happy skin.

Tsubaki Extra Moist Shampoo and Conditioner
One of my favourites in the pack, Tsubaki’s Extra Moist range moisturises the hair and boosts up to 8 hours of lasting moisture with the long-acting hyaluronic acid. It also contains the brand’s signature ingredient – Tsubaki Koji S, to soften and moisturise both the hair and the scalp. The Camellia Oil within helps to revitalize hair shine and gives a fresh floral scent.
My hair has been well taken care of by Chez Vous, but home care is still very important in the maintenance of my hair’s moisture level and texture. I’m a fan of Tsubaki’s shampoo and conditioner as they cater very well to my hair in moisturising it and keep it soft and manageable. I also love the wonderful scent and sense of femininity it gives me – glad that Tsubaki now has an Extra Moist range that is perfect for my hair!
Shampoo: Cleanse by massaging the scalp using the balls of your fingers. Rinse well.
Conditioner: After shampooing, apply an appropriate amount to the entire hair and scalp, and rinse well.

Mores White Booster Plus+
An intensive whitening and collagen booster using the latest Double Phytocell Technology and Nano total base system from Switzerland. It is suitable to be used either as a daily moisturizer or dark spot treatment booster for pigmentation. With consistent usage, skin barrier will be strengthened, reducing acne/pimples formation and revealing a more radiant and supple skin.
I was all too excited when I heard the keywords “whitening” and “collagen booster” as recently I have been looking for a product that addresses both. I won’t elaborate too much on the whitening part as the reasons are obvious, but why collagen? Collagen-boosted skin not only looks younger, firmer and more supple, it also fights the process of ageing. I saw a significant whitening effect when I applied the product on my face, and my skin also looked smoother and more uplifted (check out my delighted selfie above compared to earlier selfies in this post! :P) Added bonus: product smells pleasant with a positive, floral note. Double added bonus: my beauty idol Bebe endorses this product. She’s mad gorgeous! <3
Apply Mores White Booster PLUS+ twice daily, day and night. For optimum skin booster results, apply it generously and leave it overnight as a sleeping mask treatment. Alternatively, dab onto dark spots or scar areas to lighten them.
Mores 2 Eyes Sleeping Eye Mask
This intense hydration eye mask infuses the use of the newest premium ingredient, MDI Complex and highly concentrated botanical extracts. It best suits all individuals with lacklustre-looking eyes (dark eye circles, hooded and droopy eye-bags, dull, puffy, dry and sunken eye areas) resulted from daily work stress, environmental pollutants, irregular sleeping patterns and poor diet. It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles especially for users who regularly apply makeup.
The Mores 2 Eyes is another product that I really want (and need) because I’m into eye cream recently – it really makes a difference to dark eye circles and tired-looking eyes. Work is stressful and I face the computer daily for long hours, so a good eye cream will really help to reduce the slight fine lines at the corners of my eyes, and refresh my eyes when they feel heavy and exhausted. What I like about this sleeping eye mask is its pleasant scent, soothing sensation on my eyes during and after application, and its light texture so it feels “barely there” and will not stain my pillows.
Apply Mores 2 Eyes Sleeping Eye Mask on a regular basis, 2 to 3 times a week to achieve more rejuvenated and radiant looking eyes! Alternatively, you can apply at the corners of your mouth for firming (I didn’t know this works for the mouth too, so happy!).
