12 July 2014


One of the few beauty box subscriptions that ship internationally is the Wantable Box, and I really like that, as it is a fantastic way of trying out brands that you would otherwise not come across in Australia. Here are my thoughts on the *Wantable June 2014 box;

What They Say:
We create unique customer profiles by asking customers a series of product and personality questions. We then use this data to introduce customers to assortments of products perfectly suited to their personal taste. You get 4 to 5 full-size premium makeup products, hand-picked to perfectly match your preferences, valued at over US$80

RRP: US$36 per box if you subscribe, or US$40 for a one-time purchase – Available from Wantable

What I Say:
The Wantable box is based on the US, and they have three monthly box options available including  a makeup box, an accessory box and an intimates box, as well as they also from time to time have limited edition boxes. The Wantable boxes are a little more expensive than other beauty subscription boxes available in Australia, but it also claims to have products included at a higher total value.

As I have explained in my previous  Wantable reviews (you can check out my Feb 2014 review here) , is that they are very customised, and for each box you order, you go through the extensive customisation process, where you in the various categories select what you LOVE, LIKE and DISLIKE, and consequently Wantable promises to that you don’t end up with products you ‘DISLIKE’, but rather a box full of products you either ‘LIKE’ or ‘LOVE’ – so in other words, nothing but products you are actually excited about.
The only downside to the Wantable box being American is that they have opposite seasons to Australia – and so the June box has a summer theme with ‘everything you need to unleash your inner summertime goddess’. But in saying that, the particular products I got were not that summery, and I cannot see why you also cannot use them during winter.

This is what was in June Beauty Box:

Eleece Illuminous Hydrating Face Mask – Full Size/Qty 2 – (RRP: US$30)

These cloth masks contains coenzyme Q10 and damask callous rose extract which is to promote healing and fight free radicals and provide nourishment to the skin to repair sun damage, balance moisture levels and aid in clearing acne symptoms, as well as fight the signs of ageing by rehydrating the skin and deliver collagen. This is truly just what my skin needs, with signs of ageing, sun damage and pigmentation, and add to that that my skin has been crazy lately breaking out, so I cannot wait to put it to the test. Oh, I almost forgot – the masks came in the most gorgeous black organza bag, so cute!

Liberty Republic Nail Polish in Omen – Full Size - (RRP:US$14)

This brand is new to me, so I really don’t know what to expect, but the bright red shade is so lovely, and it is perfect for brightening up a dark and dull winters outfit. I love that the formula is 5-free, and hence free from chemical nasties. Having said that, the colour is similar to several others in my collection (I do love a classic red!) but there is really nothing exciting about it, so deep down, I would have preferred a different colour.

Glam Natural Mascara in Black – Full Size, 7g - RRP: US$28

You can never have too many black mascaras, and this one is paraben free and vegan, which does sound pretty good. I have sensitive eyes, so I am always a little concerned when I try out new mascara brands, but I do look forward to testing it out.

Cailyn Deluxe Mineral Blush in Peach Pink – Full Size – RRP: $30

Another brand that is new to me! This blush is absolutely gorgeous pinky peach shade with a tiny touch of shimmer. And I love that it has the attached ‘powder puff’ so it is easy apply on the go, especially seeing there is also a mirror on the lid. And if you prefer to use a blush brush, which admittedly I do, you can unscrew the lid, and use it like that too. Very excited about this one, so I can’t wait to try it out.

Skiin Instant Skin Tightener & Line Filler – Sample, 3ml

This is supposed to tighten and lift sagging skin and wrinkles in minutes, and used daily promises to help skin regain a radiant and younger appearance. This sounds pretty amazing and I do like forward to trying this out, as it sounds just what my again skin needs, I just hope the tiny sample is sufficient to actually start to see a difference.

So you go, those were the items in my June Wantable box. All up I am quite happy about the contents in this month’s box, four full-sized items and one sample, which I all look forward to trying out. I am quite excited about especially the Cailyn blush and the Eleece masks, and while the Glam Natural mascara and the Liberty Republic nail polish didn’t get me too excited, they are basic items that should be in any beauty collection, so they definitely won’t go to waste. I am also excited about the Skiin tightener, but just hope the tiny sample is big enough for a few uses so I can give it a proper try and verdict.

And as I have mentioned in previous Wantable reviews, it is important to note that I did not get any products that were on my DISLIKE list – rather I have ticked that I LOVE blushes, lash products and nail polish, and that I LIKE complexion products, so you can only applaud Wantable for fulfilling their promises.

The box contains 4 full-sized makeup products and one sample – all with a combined value of US$102 for just the US $40 that a once off box cost, which makes this box extremely good value! And as mentioned above, what I really love is getting introduced to some international brands that I would otherwise never have heard off, or even had access to.

  1. The Cailyn blush looks adorable! I love the powder puff! Something that you can use for a quick touch up without the hassle of a brush! :)

    1. I love that blush too, the colour is so wearable. I think actually its the first blush I have with a powder puff, but I love it!
