BLACK GARLIC - Demo & Review

Guys guys guys, 

Have you heard about blue apron before? I first heard it from itsjudyslife vlog. It's basically a subscription service where they will send you prepped fresh ingredients along with recipes, so all you have to do is just cook it. I really wanted to try it, but too bad such thing didn't exist in Indonesia.

Fast forward months (or is it year?) later, I randomly googled "William Wongso" -because I always get sucked into the black hole of internet, jumping from one thing and another-, and Black Garlic website was one of the first few to pop out. I think William Wongso is like the advisor or something for Black Garlic.
Black Garlic is similar to Blue Apron, except it's not a subscription service, you order it food by food.

Of course I decided to order some (I also found 100k off coupon on instagram). I was kinda giddy about it actually. So now I'm gonna review this rather unique-in-Indonesia service.
One of the nice thing about Black Garlic is that you can choose which date you want your ingredients to come, and it will come on that EXACT date. No waiting around for JNE or TIKI or whatever to get your order to you. Make sense?

Although, you do have to order 2 days prior to the date you want it to be delivered. So that kinda sucks, especially if you're as excited as I was to try them.

They come in this box with styrofoam and ice pack to keep the freshness of the ingredients.

P.s. if you keep the box until you got three of them, you can contact Black Garlic and they will come to your house to pick them up and you'll get 50000 off coupon. It's their #GOGREEN effort.
For my first order I picked up 3 menus:

  • Honey Glazed Dory with Egg Salad and Sautéed Baby Buncis (4 portions)
  • Beef Burger with Sweet Potato Fries and Coleslaw (2 potions - the coleslaw is only included if you order the 4 portions option)
  • Rendang "William Wongso" with Ketupat and Sayur Labu (2 portions)

It cost me Rp 220,000.00 in total after the 100K coupon code. And I NEED to mention that I love the paper they print the recipe on! It's thick and doff-laminated, so if you spill something while you're using it, it won't ruin the paper.
Most of the ingredients in each menu is individually packaged like this. I usually just chuck this in the fridge without opening them up just so it's easy to take out of the fridge (as in I don't have to look through the ingredients one by one to see which one belongs to which recipe).

However, I do recommend you to take a peek inside to make sure there is no ingredient you need to put in the freezer. I made the mistake of not looking through the ingredients inside the bag, because I thought all things that's in the bag are the ones that only need to be put in the fridge, and ended up with a box of half gone-bad wontons (more on that later).
The stuffs you need to freeze if you don't wanna cook them immediately.

Alrighty, now let's get into each menu:

Honey Glazed Dory with Egg Salad and Sautéed Baby Buncis
the ingredients
All ready to be assembled
It took me 1 hour or so in total to cook this menu (I was filming the process, so it took longer than necessary), which I think is not bad for a three-dishes menu.

By the way, that's not ALL the dory they provided. I portioned it out for lunch and fry again later for dinner so that they stay crispy :) I made the baby buncis and the salad all at once tho, so what you see now is the actual portion they gave for both dishes.
The dory sauce is delicious. I like it so much that I try to recreate the sauce. The result is not exactly the same though, kinda similar, but mine lacks this "smokey" sort of flavor, which bring me to my next point:

One of the things that I don't like about Black Garlic is the fact that they don't write the recipe for the pre-packaged sauce. They only write the ingredients inside the sauce, but no measurement or how to create the sauce. This is the same with all the pre-packaged sauce and flavoring, even the prepped dishes like wontons (more on that later).

That's kinda a bummer for me as I'd very much like to recreate some of the dishes they have. I mean, it's not like they will lose business or anything if they share the recipe, given they change their menu every week anyway.
Also, for the extra dish they give you if you order 4 portions (in this case the sautéed baby buncis), they don't even write the ingredients they use inside the sauce.

Speaking of portion, their portion is GENEROUS! This three-dishes ended up being 8 portions instead of 4. I ate them with rice of course, so it helps in stretching the portions, BUT! each of those 8 portions was still generous, I didn't skimp on it or try to really force it into 8 portions. 
So if you really want to make it a bit budget, I recommend you to choose the "family-style" menu where you portion the dishes yourself (as opposed to, for example, burger, where it's already portioned out for you. Make sense?). Other tip is, try to order the "4 portions" option instead of "2 portions", because most of the menus are cheaper if you buy "4 portions" and you may also get "bonus dish" on some menu ;)

Oh, The egg salad and sauteed baby buncis are tasty as well :)

This is the demo for this dish on my vlog:

Up next:

Beef Burger with Sweet Potato Fries and Coleslaw
the ingredients
bun, bun, bun
The burger bun is from Vineth, which I believe is a bakery by William Wongso.
the lettuce, which look sad
For a company that pride themselves in fresh ingredient, this lettuce doesn't look good. Note that I made this dish 2 days after it arrived (they say their ingredients can last up to 5 days) and when they arrived I immediately stored them in my fridge. But all in all, I'm not prissy enough to not eat the lettuce, it's just a bit of bruising anyway.
all prepped and ready to be assembled
This burger was only ok for me, like they're pretty good, but not amazing.

The highlight of this burger for me is actually the bun. Yup, the bun. The bun is sooo sooo good. It has this buttery taste to it, and combined with the crispy top and edges, it is amazing. The burger sauce is something worth mentioning as well. They're what make this burger decent.
As for the meat, they're not as big as I want it to be. I know, I know, it contradicts my previous statement about the generous portion, but for this burger, I can stand a bit more meat. You can see in this picture that the meat patty only cover half of the bun.

I suppose you can make the patty flatter for it to cover the whole bun, but I like my meat thick and juicy. that's what she said.
As for the sweet potato fries, they're okay, I don't really like the "floury" coating.


Rendang "William Wongso" with Ketupat and Sayur Labu
the ingredients
I made this one on Eid-Mubarak because, you know, it makes sense.
I don't have much to say about it other than that it's completely satisfactory.

Ketupat, good. Rendang, good. Sayur labu, good. All around a great lunch :)
Though I must say that the highlight is the Sayur Labu. It's so so yummy (how can it not with the exorbitant amount of coconut milk, right? Coconut milk has always been my favorite), I literally gulped every last drop of it, drank it all.

However, just like the others, unfortunately they don't give you the recipe for the "bumbu" (flavoring) of this awesome sayur labu either, which is such a shame because I so would make this again. and again. and again.


Sesame Chicken with Potato Wedges and Shrimp Wonton Soup
the ingredients
This one is my second order. I ordered two menus this time, but the other one I didn't take photo of, so this is the last one on this review. FINALLY, right? Sorry for the long post.
First I'd like to mention the potatoes. They're browning :(

I mean, obviosly they'll be brown after they are cut up 'cause they oxidize, so I think it's better if they give the potato unsliced, just washed. While it means more prep for us, it also means fresher potato. Plus the brown water residue kinda irked me.
Just random photo of the broth gel.
I was just amused, so I took more photo of it. I've never seen broth (or is it consommé?) in a gel form.
This is the wonton I've been talking about. I didn't realize that there was this box of wontons that you need to store in the freezer, so half of mine had gone bad. The ones that hadn't were good though. How do I know which one was good and which one was bad you ask? I bit into each one of them after putting them in the soup lol.

Bottomline, please make sure you check inside the bag to see if there's any ingredients you need to store in the fridge! Don't be a dodo like me.

Oh, and this wonton soup definitely need some extra salt.
From all the five menu I've tried so far, this is definitely my least favorite. 

The sesame sauce was bland. like really bland. The marinate for the chicken didn't add much flavor either, so I ended up eating them with chili sauce to get some flavor. The potato wedges were meh as well.
The saving grace for this dish is definitely the wonton soup, which I really like, but unfortunately I had to dump half of mine away because of my stupidity -___-"

Alright, now I'm done with all the dishes!!

Here's a bit of summary:
  • Reasonable price
  • New menu selection every week
  • Most of the menus that I've tried are good
  • They have #GREENBOX program
  • No preservative
  • No MSG
  • Safe packaging
  • You can choose on what date you want your food to be delivered
  • Generous portions
  • No written recipe for the pre-packaged sauces and prepped dishes
  • I've gotten a couple ingredients (potatoes and lettuce) that weren't as, I don't know how to put it, maybe not in a condition that I want them to be.
Overall, I do like Black Garlic. I think they're an awesome service. It's definitely cheaper than getting take out/eating out. Of course, it's cheaper if you just go out and buy the ingredients yourself, but this is a great alternative if you don't have time to do your grocery or if you don't like to do too much prep. As for me, I like it because I get to try to cook all these different food I've never cooked before, kinda like food inspiration. foodpiration. It's great for when I don't know what I want to cook. If only they put the recipe for the sauce and the prepped dishes (like recipes for the wonton and ayam kuning), then they would be perfect for me. Will I order again from them? Definitely.
If you're interested in trying Black Garlic too, you can use the coupon code "BG7PRLISA" to get Rp 100,000.00 OFF your order ;)

FTC Disclaimer: Not a sponsored post. Paid everything myself. The coupon code is a referral code that ALL the people, who have purchased from them, have. All opinion are honest as always.

P.s. sorry for the catastrophe that is my grammar in this post.

My 1st Sociolla Pink Box - Unboxing & Mini Review

Hola people!

Today I wanna do an unboxing for April's Sociolla pink box :)

What is Pink Box? It's a box that Sociolla bloggers receive each month that contains product(s) that Sociolla carry.

Speaking of, I have a discount code for you for when you shop at SOCIOLLA(*):
Yes, both the link and the code are affiliate, which means if you use them, you get the discount and I get a little kickback from Sociolla for promoting them, but you don't have to use either of them if you don't want to :)
April is my first box and it was a nice surprise because I was actually confused when the delivery guy gave me a pink Sociolla box as I didn't remember ordering anything from Sociolla at that time. And I just love Sociolla's box, period. I still have ALL MY BOXES from when I was subscribed to Sociolla's subscription box. I put them up as cute decor and to store miscellaneous little trinkets.

Oh by the way, about the subscription box. I decided not to extend my subscription for now, I've updated the reason why HERE at the end.

Now let's see inside the box!
It's VITACREME B12 goodies!

I first know about vitacreme from the first Sociolla box where I got the sample size of the day cream.
Vitacreme B12 Day Cream Sun Protection

It's a day cream that contains SPF30+++, so it's a 2 in 1 product for you face, day cream (nutrients - vitamin B5, C, E, and B12) and sun screen (protection).  It moisturizes your face and protects it from polution and UVA-UVB at the same time.

As a day cream, it claims to be anti-aging, anti-oxidant, and super water-proof (so yay for swimming).

As a sunscreen, it has a decent SPF30+++, which I think is pretty standard for a day cream.
Now, to be honest with you guys, I am waaaay waaaay too loyal to my holygrail Biore UV Watery Gel, so I gave this away to my mom. It's okay though, 'cause I still have the sample size from my January box, so that's the one that I tried.

//Please note here that this Vitacreme B12 one is NOT necessarily replaceable by the Biore UV as the Biore UV does not contain vitamins (to my knowledge), ONLY sun protection (excellent superb formula and SPF50++++). However, I don't really care much for morning skin care to begin with (only Toner & SK-II FTE, not routine), so I still prefer to use Biore UV as my sunscreen-completely personal preference. If you like your skin vitamins and nutrients, obviously use a day cream as well, or in lieu of, if the day cream comes with SPF like this Vitacreme one//

I tried it on Sam and he said it doesn't feel sticky at all. For me however, I'm very particular about stickiness (you probably already know this if you frequent this blog or my youtube channel), even some Bath & Body Works lotions are way too sticky for me. With this day cream, I still feel a slight stickiness, it's slight, but still a bit too sticky for me.

You can purchase it HERE if you're interested.

Now onto the second product:
Vitacreme B12 Lightening Beauty Cream

Actually, I cringed when I saw this product lol. 

Living in South East Asia, where fair and pale skin is coveted by most people (seriously, some people are so afraid of getting tanned, they cover their face with their hand when they're just walking a few meters to their car), "lightening" skin care here usually means its purpose IS to lighten your skin, to make your skin tone a few shades fairer, and I'm not down for that. I love my skin tone just the way it is, thank you.

I guess being shamed for my skin tone over the years makes me to have a certain resentment when it comes to lightening product lol. #iambitter. I wouldn't say I was bullied, because I'm sure those people don't have any ill-intention when they say things to me, they just genuinely think that a fair skin is what all people want and what you should desire to have, because that's the norm here. Nevertheless, those words really did affect me when I was younger (I've been getting it for as long as I can remember, probably starting 3 years old?). Sorry I'm going on a tangent here, that's another story for another post. Let's go back to the mini review.
Thankfully, the ever-so-helpful Titaz emailed me its functions and it's not actually a product to bleach your skin.

It's a Dark-spot Corrector!

Its purpose is to lighten pigmentation marks and prevent the development, which means it's able to even out your skin complexion. It is also said to be able to lighten your lips.

I have loads of pigmentation from my acnes, so I'm happy to give this baby a try.

I've been using it for two and a half weeks now and I'm only using it at night time, because despite the claim of being a non-greasy formula, I still find it slightly too sticky for me to wear it during the day. Like I said, I'm just too annoyingly persnickety when it comes to stickiness. This one absorbs even better than the day cream, so if you're not nit-picky like me, you probably wouldn't feel a thing (I read other reviews and they said it doesn't feel sticky to them).

Within this two weeks, here are a few benefits that I see:
  • It's moisturizing. Usually whenever I use my acne cream I always get dry patches on my acne area, which is normal I think, given an acne cream is supposed to dry out your acnes. However, ever since I use this cream before the acne cream, I never get dry patches anymore.
  • I don't really get those boxcar and rolling scars anymore. My acnes tend to just either healed completely or turn to hyper-pigmentation now. I'm not 100% sure that it's solely because of this cream, because it's not even its purpose, but the only other new thing I've been using is a toner from Kiehl's. So maybe it's the combination of my current skin care. Bottomline I'm just glad because I used to get those type of scarring quite a bit.
  • I don't get as much cystic acne. Yay! Even on my period, I only got one cystic acne, which is quite a triumphant for me lol. My other acnes tend to be those mild ones and they appear a lot less. I won't contribute all this solely to this cream because I also have been getting really diligent with my night time skin care, but I'm sure this cream helps as well, because it's not the first time I'm trying to be diligent, and this time it works better than before.
As far as its effectiveness on healing hyper-pigmentation, I can't say much yet because I haven't taken an updated photo of my current complexion (I took a 'before photo' before I started using this cream), which is why I'm only calling this blog post a mini review.

I'll have a full-on complete review on this cream once I've tried it for more than a month to be really sure on what I think about it.

Meanwhile, you can purchase it HERE if you want to give it a go. It's paraben-free and mild, so it's suitable for all types of skin, even sensitive ones.

And you can use the code "SBNLAC3U" to get Rp 50,000.00 off when shopping at Sociolla (*) ;)

FTC disclaimer: the items in this post are sent to me by Sociolla for review purposes as a part of Sociolla blogger. I am not paid to write this post. However, discount code and links with (*) are affiliate. All my reviews are my own honest opinion as always :) Trust me, I'm incredibly picky on accepting brand/items collaboration that it can took me days to decide because I'll be researching high and low on the internet about the items/services offered. I only promote things that I would actually use myself. I've shopped at Sociolla even before I became a Sociolla blogger, so I have faith in them.

Sociolla Box April 2016 - Unboxing & Review

Another month, another Sociolla Box review! Click HERE (*) to subscribe to Sociolla Box.

I'm not going to go super detail about the products this month, just the price and such. You can watch the video here to see the products' details:

First thing first, the box is a bit bigger this month (see above pic for comparison). Not that it affect anything, but I thought it's worth mentioning.
Avene Thermal Spring Water
Retail Price: Rp 178000 (150 ml)
Avene Micellar Lotion
Retail Price: Rp 217,000.00 (200 ml)
In the Box: Rp 27,125.00 (25 ml)
Kedip False Eyelashes in Candy Cane
Retail Price: Rp 35,000.00
IOMA Gentle Exfoliating Emulsion
Retail Price: Rp 695,000.00 (50 ml)
In the Box: Rp 13,900.00 (1 ml)

EMK Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Serum
Retail Price: Rp 2,652,000.00 (30 ml)
In the Box: Rp 132,600.00 (1.5 ml)

Maaan, that anti-aging serum is damn expensive. Didn't realize it until I write this post. It better make my skin as smooth as a baby's butt.
The Box Price: Rp 450,000.00 (3 months subscriptions)/Rp 850,000.00 (6 months subscriptions)/Rp 1,650,000.00 (12 months subscriptions)
The Box Value: Rp 386,625.00

This is the most value box Sociolla has ever put out. Hands down. But items wise, I actually prefer last months' and the first months'. 

Anyway, this is the last of my Sociolla subscription. I signed up for the 3 months (then +1 free cause it was grand opening). You can watch the video above to see my thoughts and overall review of the Sociolla Box subscription service. Whether it's worth your moola or not. Too lazy to write them down lol. 

Am I gonna continue to subscribe? Hard to say. I'm leaning toward yes, but still not 100% sure. What do you think?

I decided not to extend my subscription for now, not because I didn't want to (I really do, which is why I still religiously watch Jihan's unboxing video of it), but more because Sam and I suddenly (yes, it really was sudden, no exaggeration, it was kinda like an overnight decision lol) decided to buy our own apartment, so I figured we need all the money we can save. In the future when I have more to spare, I'll probably subscribe again. You know my love for subscription services is endless haha.
Click HERE (*) to subscribe to Sociolla Box.

You can use the code “SBNLAC3U” to get 50k off your purchase *wink wink shameless plug wink*. 

As I said before, It is an affiliate link and code, but you don’t have to use them if you don’t want to, ok. It doesn’t affect you either way (except if you use the code, cause then you got discount!!!), only affect my income haha.

FTC Disclaimer: This is not sponsored. I paid for the subscription service myself. Link with (*) is an affiliate link.

Japan Post otw, Blogo Review!, Sociolla Pink Box

I’m in the middle of editing my Summer Japan Trip Day 2 photos now (Click HERE for Day 1). There are 100+ PHOTOS!!!
And that’s after narrowing it down a couple times wtf. Almost half of it are from my Dad’s camera though, ‘cos he is a super shutterbug kind hehe. He probably took more than twice as much photos as I did on that trip -and I took a LOT, trust me.
It’s already..err..5 days?? since I started editing it and I still got 40+ photos left. But it’s ok, because half of what’s left are crappy iPhone photos that I usually don’t bother to edit too much (just resize + brightness), so I should be done editing by tomorrow :D


Anyway, I’m blogging on Blogo now, which I haven’t done since I bought it a year ago. I kinda have a love-hate relationship with it. Like I LOOOOVE the interface, it’s super clean-looking and nice. I also love how easy it is to embed instagram, link, youtube videos, and quotes from webpages (they automatically add the source of the quote. convenient to the max, right?).
see? much better than blogger’s “new post” interface, right?
BUT!!! Blogo has some fatal flaws that makes me go back to just blog on blogger time and time again.
First up, I cannot change the alignment of the paragraph!! Second, cannot change font size without making it into a heading and the heading has to be in a new line while what I want is to change font size of certain words in a sentence (to make it dramatic and whatnot). Thridly, I cannot change the actual font and sometimes I want to use other font than the default for certain sentences. Fourth, cannot change the font’s color! And that’s a big no no for me because I love colorful post, ok?
Fifth, I really don’t like how the pictures on the post is only shown as a grey box on Blogo. Like this:
And I have to hover to see the image. Even then, it only shows a partial of the image. Like this:
Err, I like to look at the picture I’m blogging about while I’m blogging about it, thank you. I guess this is not a big deal if you don’t blog with a lot of photos.
Sixth, and I just remember this because it happened while I’m writing this post. So when I upload a picture onto a post, the picture is not placed to where I want it to be, but on the top/bottom/middle of the post (this one happens almost ALL the time), or worse, it replaces other picture on the post. This doesn’t always happen, but it does happen from time to time. When you do a post with shitload of photos and this happens, you have to hover all the images already on the post to see which one is replaced and it’s annoying af.
Seventh, cannot do multiple photos upload. You have to upload all the photos one by one. So inefficient. Again, I guess this is not a big deal if you don’t blog with a lot of photos.
Eighth, the new line coding on Blogo is different (or not compatible) than those in Blogger I think, so when I go to re-edit a post (the ones that I originally make on Blogo) on Blogger, the new line/break line got all wonky and I have to redo all the new lines wtf. Which I guess is not that big of a problem if I only use Blogo to blog, but I don’t. See reasons above.
Ninth, and THIS JUST HAPPENED. IT NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!! I was almost finished with this post, and suddenly the post scrolled up to the top and it FREAKING ERASED like 4 or 5 long paragraphs I already wrote wtfwtfwtf. I don’t know, maybe I accidentally press a key on my keyboard while typing or something. I tried to undo, but it just like Blogo sent me back to a state before I wrote those 4 to 5 paragraphs. So I had to retype everything WTFHHKPQ. Err, I think it’s a fluke lah, never happened to me before, though I’ve never really used Blogo that much before, so who knows? Anyway, just to be safe, I click save every paragraph or so now lolol
So, yes, I want to love Blogo all the wayyy so so bad. I paid for it after all. But I just can’t. YET, at least, until they have updates on the matters above. But it’s been almost a year already since I bought, so I’m positively pessimistic lol. Plus, they have a board discussion on new features and they said that they’re not keen on changing the way images appear (see reason 5).
Ps. I think you can change alignment and the font’s size/color/type using inline CSS (yes, they do have HTML/CSS embedding feature, which actually is awesome), but it’s too bothersome to write an HTML code everytime I want to change the color please. I prefer just clicking a color like in blogger interface.
<p style=“color:#cccccc”> LIKE THIS CAN CHOOSE COLOR but too bothersome, not worth it if you intend to use lots of color</p>
LIKE THIS CAN CHOOSE COLOR but too bothersome, not worth it if you intend to use lots of color
LIKE THIS CAN CHOOSE COLOR but too bothersome, not worth it if you intend to use lots of color
Wait. Turns out cannot use CSS. I think the code embedding thing only works for HTML code. cmiiw.
This is what code and html embedding feature looks like on Blogo:
Ok, I’m done with this random review. Super unintended. I was just going to blog short post about the Japan post lol.


On a side note, Just received this month’s blogger items from Sociolla, so expect an unboxing soon, and review in a few weeks. It’s a skin care, so I need to try it a few weeks before I can get a good grip on the product :)
Meanwhile, you can always go to Sociolla to shop your fav beauty products and use the code “SBNLAC3U” to get 50k off your purchase *wink wink shameless plug wink*. It is an affiliate link and code, but you don’t have to use them if you don’t want to, ok. It doesn’t affect you either way (except if you use the code, cause then you got discount!!!), only affect my income haha.
Ok. Good Night ladies & gentlemen, Imma go get ready to sleep thankyou :)

Sociolla Box March 2016 - Unboxing & Review

I have yet another unboxing of Sociolla Box!

Here's the unboxing video that I uploaded in my Bahasa channel (Yup, I have bahasa channel now!):

Here's the LINK (*) if you want to subscribe, and as always, here's the breakdown of everything that is in the box.

My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask
Retail Price: Rp 29,900.00 (single sachet)/Rp 125,000.00 (box-5pcs)

Okay, if you're a mask junkie like me, you're probably already familiar with this particular brand of sheet mask. This brand has been raved about by many. I've tried some variant from this brand as well and I find them to be good, so I'm happy to get this.

Polka Matteness Lip Lacquer in "Maracass"
Retail Price: Rp 185,000.00

This is probably the best item I've ever gotten from Sociolla Box so far (imo). Saying that I love matte liquid lipstick is probably an understatement, as I find matte liquid lipstick to be the best lip product ever. Serious. So this product definitely hits the spot for me. It's also in my favorite lip color, which is nude (I know, I'm so boring lol). You can see the swatch of this liquid lippie goodness in my unboxing video above.

Nuxe Prodigieux Le Parfume
Retail Price: Rp 750,000.00 (100 ml)
In the Box: Rp 7,500.00 (1 ml)

Babor Cleansing Gel & Toning
Retail Price: Rp 350,000.00 (200 ml)
In the Box: Not sure how many ml in the sachet, but let just say 3 ml -> Rp 5,250.00

Okay, let me explain myself. In the video, I know it looks like I have some kind of vendetta against sachet samples lol, but I really don't. I don't mind getting sachet samples, so long as they are counted as a "bonus" item (like Lolabox did).

Since Sociolla promises 4-5 items, these sachet samples are clearly included as this month's items, and that is just a bit upsetting, given you can get samples like this easily from BA without the need to subscribe to something. I don't feel it really worth my money to get samples like this, which to me, seems just like a filler item to fulfil the "4-5 items" that they promised. But maybe that's just me.

The Box Price: Rp 450,000.00 (3 months subscriptions)/Rp 850,000.00 (6 months subscriptions)/Rp 1,650,000.00 (12 months subscriptions)
The Box Value: Rp 227,650.00

Does the box have higher value than what you paid for? Yes, of course. Still, this box is a hit and a miss for me. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lip lacquer, and I like the mask just enough. However, I am a bit disappointed that they would count sachet samples as its own item (? I don't know how to explain, but I hope you get my point), which to me just seems like a filler. You definitely pay less for all these items compare to if you were to buy them retail, I'll give you that, but isn't that a given for a subscription service? Lol, I think I have more points, but I'll save it for next month's unboxing when I'll be deciding whether to continue to subscribe or not.
