We just received some inside news to what Black Box is up to recently. Apparently, they really have something up their sleeves. Some of you might have already noticed the little changes done to the bi-monthly boxes, so let’s wait and see. I smell something here and I can’t wait to find out what it is!
To something that’s more exciting for all of us today – Say hello to SUPER 10!
The Black Box team just put together 3 LIMITED EDITION boxes for the month of October, and what’s unique about these boxes are that they have a different superhero character that represents the personality of each box (I, for one could relate to one of the boxes). So which tickles your fancy?
As pictured above, I received the IRON AMBER (IA)! Sounds like a tough, red hot superhero, Black Box! So your “perception” of me (judging from this option) among the 3:
Iron Amber, “You are driven enough to have it all. Don’t be the one to fade into the background, because you’re the force of personality, a bright light bursting with charisma and comebacks.”
WOW I’m so flattered. *chuckles*
So let’s start unboxing my Super 10 Iron Amber!
What an awesome deal I got from this lifestyle kit; there were a few brands of products just from this single box, including L’Oreal Paris, Hada Labo, KLARITY & Himalaya Herbals!
Starting with one of my favourite skincare icons – Hada Labo!
IA contains both the Hada Labo SHA Cleansing Oil (30ml) and Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion (20ml). The Japanese brand needs no introduction, and I’m always grateful for hydrating products because my skin feels quite dry recently and I have been piling on products that will restore its softness and moisture.
The Hydrating Lotion intensively hydrates the skin and helps lock in moisture to preserve the optimum moisture balance. Skin immediately feels smoother, more supple and has a dewy radiance after application, and the product is free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant, so that there is low risk of irritation to your skin. In fact, it helps to restore the skin’s natural pH balance!
The Cleansing Oil is a wonderful makeup remover as it contains high purity olive oil for powerful cleansing, while its Super Hyaluronic acid moisturizes. The water soluble cleansing oil can be easily washed away without leaving any greasy residue, stickiness or dryness. It is also free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant, so that there is low risk of irritation to your skin.
I love that Hada Labo’s products are so mild and gentle to skin yet they always deliver the results we want to achieve
The Himalaya Clear Complexion Whitening Face Wash (50ml) is enriched with a natural blend of Saffron extracts and other herbs. It is a soap-free, daily use face wash that cleanses and clarifies skin of impurities, giving you a clear, radiant and even complexion.
I’m in love with this product even though I have only tried it once. It has a light and unique scent that you will want to wake up to (when you wash your face in the morning), and its texture is rich yet very smooth. I like how the product glided easily on my skin and my mood simply lifted right after the wash. It also contains Licorice and White Dammer which lightens the skin tone, restoring skin’s natural fairness!
Without stickiness and oily shine, Klarity Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion (5ml) helps to restore your natural beauty with diamond powder, giving you the instant glow. It is also equipped with wild rosehip extract – a powerful source of antioxidant that helps to prolong the skin’s youthfulness. The lotion comes with a sunscreen factor of SPF30 PA++.
What’s amazing is that this product alone has 11 skin benefits! Whitening, purifying, repairing, firming, smoothening, soothing, hydrating, toning, anti-aging, also a sunscreen and it’s water-proof! It is functions as a makeup base and evens out complexion without clogging your pores – this means that you can apply less foundation yet have your skin looking flawless!
Here’s a YouTube video with fellow bloggers Juliana and William demonstrating Klarity’s products!

I have more awesome stuff coming up with Klarity, so stay tuned, I really can’t wait to share more!
Ok, this is supposed to be a men’s product but I tried it anyway out of curiosity. The L’Oreal Paris Men Expertise Charcoal Black Scrub (15ml) is, like its name suggests, a charcoal-powdered scrub. At every use, the formula combines the magnetic power of charcoal with 2000 beads – it dives into pores to unclog them one by one and removes dirt in depth. Free your skin from oil and impurities in-depth and from dead cells on the surface. The imperfections and blackheads are reduced, leaving the skin feeling and looking smooth and healthy.
Well the products smell quite masculine in my opinion, but I thought a guy would probably like it plus the fact that the skin feels really clean and refreshed after the wash. Guys like simple, practical stuff without the frills, right? For those who do appreciate a little pampering, this sample comes with a small tube of moisturising fluid for a “kick-start wake-up” touch to your mornings. It is really a daily skin booster with taurine and vitamin C for instant skin recharging against fatigue, dull look and thirsty skin. Man up guys, and go try it! Look sharp, not tired!
I get excited about hair products these days because I realized that a good shampoo/conditioner really makes time in the bathroom worth spending, and you emerge feeling like a princess. That’s all I want these days after long and tiring work hours! What’s more, I have really long hair that needs extra care and moisturizing, else they just end up looking like a huge frizzy hay stack
So the Keratin Smooth Perfecting Shampoo (70ml) promises to let you experience 72 hours or 3 whole days of frizz-free hair! This Keratin Smooth range uses revolutionary Micro-Keratin technology to smoothen hair fibre by fibre. Complete the regime with conditioner, mask and frizz eraser for best results!
The first highlight about this product is “OH-MY-GOODNESS-IT-SMELLS-AMAZING”!!!! I simply love how it smells (imagine Princess, sparkly effect) and the wash was very enjoyable. With such a pretty packaging (fuchsia cap, nudish-pink body), awesome product fragrance, and a smooth texture that lathers up really fast and well, I have absolutely no complains. My hair feels smoother and looks more glossy after wash and blow too. So HAPPY <3
Top up the results with the Extraordinary Oil (5ml x 2 sachets) and you are good to go!
It’s a No. 1 hair treatment product in Japan. Inspired by the extraordinary power of six precious flower oils, the Extraordinary Oil provides incredible nourishment for all hair types without weighing your hair down. Nourishes, softens, smoothens, shines, protects and strengthens – one miracle drop, six extraordinary benefits! I have been using this product many many times as a regular consumer and have always sworn by it to maintain luscious, soft and silky hair.
So that sums up the contents of my SUPER 10 IRON AMBER Box! Yeahhh!
