What's In a Beauty Box?

To quote Forrest Gump, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get"

Let's be honest -- surprises are fun! The anticipation and excitement of not knowing what to expect. Then, there's hope of something good and worry of the undesirables...

So, if I am to open up a mystery box of beauty goodies, here are 5 things that I'd be thrilled to find.

Read on!

#1: Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate 
When someone compliments my skin and asks what I use, I tell them I use the Kiehl's MRC. Second to my cleanser, it's the only skin care product that I use diligently. On days when I'm just too tired to be bother, I'd just wash my face and slap on 3 drops of this oil. While I can't be certain that this is my secret to good skin, it must be doing something right to keep my skin worry-free!

#2: Hada Labo Tamagohada Cleanser 
Used the first tube until it split open and already halfway through my 2nd tube. This cleanser is a must for me on makeup days. I am certain that this cleanser is the reason why the facial therapist couldn't find much gunk to squeeze out of my face.

 #3: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat 
This is the only top coat that can give me the confidence to paint my nails just 30 minutes before bed. It dries almost immediately and I no longer have to live with smears and hair patterns on my freshly painted nails.

 #4: Shu Uemura Hard 9 Formula Eyebrow Pencil 
I may own almost a thousand eyeshadows but I'll only ever need ONE eyebrow pencil.

 #5: Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Mask 
Just because my skin is mostly clear doesn't mean that it doesn't rebel against me. At times of flared-up itchy and flaky eczema, this is my go-to mask to calm everything down.  

Check out what my blogging ladies would like to find in their beauty boxes!

I'm with Xin, not the Hada Labo but the rest are YAY! :D I love how we see a few items being repeated - Kiehl's MRC, Shu Uemura Pencil and EL ANR have appeared in a few of our picks. Love that!

Hooray for Kiehl's MRC, I had that picked out for my beauty box too :-) Lovely picks, sweetie and I am now quite interested in the Shu brow pencil since you always have such wonderfully groomed brows.

Love that you added the Seche Vite! Why didn't I think of that? And the Kiehls MRC is gold! :)

Can anyone verify that dark chocolate is not as bad for skin as milk chocolate is? I can't live without my choccies....!
