Unboxing Wishtrend Wishbox #27 Grapefruit Box!

I wrote earlier about how wishtrend.com carries K-Beauty boxes and was interested in trying out a few.   Wishtrend is a bit more pricey than Memebox, but you know exactly what you are getting and there are no surprises.  Considering how heavy some of the items are, this could be a really good deal.

If you have never registered with Wishtrend before, please feel free to use my friend referral code ~ 092847308 ~ when you register ~ as you will get a $5.00 coupon to use!  Also, keep your welcome email, because there will be other coupons in there, like a free shipping coupon for orders $50.00 and cash vouchers as well

 

Wishbox #27 Grapefruit Box

 
Bundle you up in the freshness of grapefruits.

 

 

Wishtrend sent me my items nicely bubbled wrapped and securely packaged in a box ~ nothing fancy or anything, but they also gave me some free samples as well.  From left to right, this is what I received, which is exactly what Wishtrend stated I would get 🙂  H.E.B. stands for Hello, Everybody!

[H.E.B] Grapefruit Body Wash   The body wash is not as strong in the scent of grapefruit as the shampoo and conditioner.  It is lighter scent, not as vibrant.  However, it is a nice scent all the same.  This body wash has something called “SLIMLITE” which is to help firm up my skin.  All of the Grapefruit products include honey extract, which help for moisturization and hydration.    Volume : 300ml Value $13.99

Product Description: Nature Holic Grapefruit Body Wash is made with grapefruit water for hydration and maximum freshness with smoothing and firming effects. With ingredients directly from Mother Nature, the Nature Holic Grapefruit Body Wash is full of nourishing ingredients that work with the grapefruit water to leave you with only the best effects in addition to all day freshness. Enjoy the full effects of nature for yourself!

Replenish and rejuvenate with the Nature Holic Grapefruit Body Wash and stay fresh all day, every day!  Nature Holic Grapefruit Body Wash is recommended for people who:

  • suffer from dry skin all throughout the year
  • enjoy light fragrances rather than heavy perfumes
  • want to enjoy hydration simply from using a body wash

Ingredients: Water, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Water, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cocamide MEA, Sodium Chloride, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polysorbate 20, Citric Acid, Prunella Vulgaris Extract, Phyllanthus Emblica Extract, Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Magnolia Officinalis Bark Extract, Honey Extract, Butylene Glycol, Magnesium Nitrate, Magnesium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Caramel, Fragrance, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance

[H.E.B] Grapefruit Body Lotion  Ahh, now we are back on track ~ the lotion has the same bright grapefruit scent as the shampoo and conditioner.   Since this is the last step after cleansing hair and body,  this product needs to have a great scent, as it will last longer than shampoo/conditioner.   This is a lightweight lotion, not that heavy in texture.  It also contains the “SLIMLITE” technology which will help firm up your skin tone. Will it?  I have no idea after one use.  Firming up skin tone to me just means keeping your skin hydrated, which means it will “plump-up” and therefore give the appearance of tighter, firmer skin.  But what do I know?    Volume : 300ml Value $15.99

Some ladies I chat with on makeuptalk.com mentioned expiration dates and how they seemed to get products that were expiring soon.  I never had that issue with Wishtrend before but I did state I would report on the manufacturer dates on the products and they are very recently made.   For reference:

제조 manufacture
까지 till (use by)

Most Korean products will just have the manufacture date, not the use by date.

Conditioner, Shampoo manufactured on 10-13-2014

Body Wash manufactured on 07-04-2014 and Body Lotion on 10-13-2014

 

I am so pleased with this box!  I have fine, straight hair and am always looking for volumizing products, which the grapefruit line is marketed as.   I knew in advance that the shampoo and body gel have sulfate in them, so in case you are interested in them, you should read the ingredients that I’ve provided here.   I have oily hair, so whereas sulfates can strip and dry out your hair, it has never been an issue for me.   I love the scent of these products and this was worth the money I spend for them….speaking of which….I paid $41.59 + $10.00 in shipping (yikes!!) and I had $2.00 from my welcome email…..keep that email as well as your shipping email confirmations ~ they give you discounts and promo codes in there!  Okay, where was I?  Oh, so I paid a total of $49.59 and received a box value of $63.98.    It isn’t the best value around, BUT I have a hard time finding these products online and shipping is expensive for them, as they are so heavy.     Memebox carries these, I believe, but only in their Global Shop, so that means, I would have to purchase $70.00 in their Global Shop to get free shipping.

Did you get WishBox #27 Grapefruit Box?  What did you think of it?    If you are interested in getting this box and have not registered with Wishtrend yet, please register first and use my  friend referral code ~ 092847308.  You will receive $5.00 in your account to use on this box or any order  😀

I thought this was cute…a little grapefruit humor!
