Chinese New Year Box X Cubecrate
2015 went by in the blink of an eye, and we are already welcoming Chinese New Year 2016! I have a feeling this is going to be a great year, and I hope all of you have a wonderful start of the new year. My very first surprise of the year was no other than Cubecrate, and let's see what mystery gifts I've received from the lovely people.
I used to love fortune cookies when I was young.
Let's see what we have from Cubecrate in their Chinese New Year box!
A lovey bright yellow key fob from The Batik Boutique. Batik is an ancient art that has been practicing for 2,000 years. It takes a lot of effort and time for this intricate dyeing process, and I'm sad to say that the art is slowly dying off.
The Batik Boutique is a fair trade, social enterprise created to disrupt the cycle of poverty by providing sustainable skills training and jobs to artisans and seamstresses in Malaysia. Their products are created by hand by the artisans and seamstresses, and portion of their profits will be invested back into the communities to provide healthcare, financial literacy and continuing education.
On top of the practicality of the key fob (I don't need to dig too long for my set of keys anymore!), I really like to the bright yellow - it's so lively!
I truly love it when there are one or two beauty products in my mystery boxes. It's my first time coming across TheSabun, so I did some research on the brand. Their products are all handmade, with natural ingredients and are 100% chemical-free. Their product includes body scrub, lip scrub, lip balm, lip stain and cheek (lip tin), and facial scrub.
The Pinana Berry has a fruity and sweet scent. It's moisturizing but doesn't leave a sticky residue after applying on the lips. The lip balm is colourless, so is perfect to apply before your lipstick or when you are going for an au naturale look.
Siren's Secret Pedi Bomb from SMEEKA - artisan homemade skincare from natural and organic ingredients.
The Siren's Secret contains a bunch of goodness such as milk (powdered), organic sea salt, organic sea kelp, grapeseed oil, olive oil, peppermint essential oil, tea tree essential oil, and rosemary. The sea salt helps to cleanse and heal, while sea kelp get rid of the nasty things on your feet.
Melt the bomb in warm water.
White Formula moisturizer toner from Mycare Malaysia. Mycare Malaysia is an online premier health and beauty store offering a variety of products at competitive prices with just a click away. The travel size moisturizer is definitely handy when I'm on the road!
Another pair of pretty earring from Potsie Pottie! Potsie Pottie offers clothing and accessories sources from all over the globe at a reasonable price. Apart from their online store, you can drop by their retail shop at Tropicana City Mall to check out their collections.
I really like the products in the January box, and love how they are help in promoting the local artists in their work. I strongly believe is time for us to start appreciating our local artisans and give back to the community. If you have the same thoughts as mine, I believe you would want to have a look on their work as they have really put in a lot of effort into it!
