Review: Hada Labo Surprise Box (Really Worth Buying!)

Hada Labo Surprise Box

December was truly a month full of surprise boxes, and I’m not referring to Christmas presents (that’s for another upcoming blogpost!) I’ve already shown you what’s in the Etude House surprise box and Hysses surprise box. Now it’s time for another of my favorites: The Hada Labo Surprise Box. It costs just $29.90 but has over $106 worth of goodies within.

I like that they don’t stuff soon-to-expire items into these surprise boxes. There are boxes from some brands which really amaze me with their generosity. Take this Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion, for instance, which already retails at $22.90. It’s in this box which costs just $29.90. Madness, isn’t it? *ahem* I mean… isn’t it awesome? If you’ve managed to get your hands on one of them, consider yourself terribly lucky! 😀

You might be concerned about what to do with items that you don’t really use but come in the surprise boxes. Well, you can sell them off on Carousell and probably earn enough to pay for this box. Alternatively, you can wrap it up and gift them away during Christmas. XD

I do love online shopping but yes it does create a lot of wastage especially with the boxes the items come in, the packaging materials (bubble wrap and whatnot) and when there are so many items that you forget about some of them and they expire and have to be thrown away. Perhaps I should challenge myself to forego online shopping for a month or two. It’ll be insanely tough but worth a try. (@_@)
