There comes a time where you girls have been bffs for many years and when the yearly question of what to get for her birthday arrives, you go nuts thinking what to get for her…. @@ because you got basically everything from purse to bags, t-shirts to dress throughout those years….
That question was running through my mind last month as my bff’s birthday is near and I had no idea what to get, time to find or access to shopping malls to get her present! Adding to the bad situation was that I won’t be around again this year as I’m studying outstation….
It was also during that time, I came to know about this wonderful service from the world wide web…. And suddenly, a lightbulb formed in my brain! 😀 you must know, my bff is a girl who loves skin care products and anything that can keep her looking pretty…. Xb this gift was perfect for her and at the same time it can be delivered right to her door steps! (perfect for the faraway me too! ^^)
Well naturally girls being girls, I myself got itchy and wanted one for myself too, especially after researching more about this…. You must be wondering by now, what is this mysterious thing I am talking about? Or maybe cursing me for holding up the suspense…. >.<
and bubble wrapped….
Before I bring you girls to unbox with me, let me explain abit on MIVVA…. I find their concept rather unique. Remember the times where you felt like trying a new product yet when you enter the shop and saw the price, you hesitated?
MIVVA allows you to try 5-6 products for an affordable RM38 per month subscription! And every month is a surprise as you wouldn’t know the contents prior to opening the box 😀 gives you a feeling of receiving presents from your secret admirer eh….
But how would they know what to send to you? That’s simple! After you registered with them, you will need to answer some questionaires to construct your beauty profile such as your skin type, skin concerns, make up preferences etc…. This can be found at your profile settings…. So every month, they will try their best to customise your box based on your needs…. 🙂 A 1 month, 3 months & 6 months subscriptions are available for you to choose….
Now you can try many different products for just a fraction of their price! ^^ Isn’t this such a great news?! *dance happy dance*
Wait wait, before you girls get too excited, or perhaps you are not too convinced yet, let me bring you along with my unboxing process…. *heart flutters*
Are you excited to see the contents? 😀
Let’s introduce them one by one shall we?
