Had to Pass: Beauty and the Beach Glamourbox

Dun dun dun dunnnnn....

Do you feel it? The fear?

There is a quiet trepidation of something slyly sinister waiting in the shadows. A dark foreboding unsettles the panorama of your senses. It is nudging, pushing and building until it finally emerges and you can deny it no longer.

Lulu CuddlePuppy knows the fear.
The natural order of things has been irrevocably imbalanced.

I passed on a box again.

Just hearing a Belo exclusive, I knew I would already pass on this box. My initial thoughts?

Sunscreen Smorgasbord

Enough said.

I thought the Beauty and The Beach Glamourbox would be a sunscreen extravaganza but it is a refreshing mix of 2 staples from each of Belo's top consumer lines: SunExpert (the sun protection line,) Essentials (whitening) and Intensive (whitening with Kojic and Tranexamic Acids).

Box Value: Php 1853.75, or over 3x the subscription fee

It's a beautifully curated box especially considering the season. I love that they put out the best items and not just random items they're clearing out of warehouse. The Sheer Spray in particular, is a must try for those with sensitive skin / sunscreen allergies! And as I understand, this Essentials duo is being touted as a must-have for you to get Annederarms! (Anne Curtis, I love your underarms 5ever!)

I know Belo to have a lot of fans from her clinic prescriptions / drugs but I'm not sure of the general consensus on her mass market lines. That said, this box totally suits skincare and whitening fanatics. It's just not for me because I already have an immortal supply of sunscreens and I'm not into whitening!
