The human body is the best work of art.

Helsinki, -15 degrees



The amount of energy I'm getting from the winter sun feels incredible! Today it felt almost like I got rushes of energy when the sun was shining into our apartment! How cool is that?

On uskomatonta huomata miten paljon energiaa saa talviauringosta! Tänään tuntui jopa kuin olisin saanut energiasyöksyjä suoraan sisimpääni kun aurinko paistoi asuntoomme! Eikö talviaurinko olekin ihana?


Some time ago I got an awaited little white box in the mail. It came from Cleopatra's Secret! Inside of it I found wonderful cosmetic novelties! How lovely, I could finally feel as wonderful as Cleopatra herself. There are many theories about how Cleopatra's cosmetic care and beauty treatments so I thought the name of this surprise box was quite apt! Let's have a look inside the surprise box! Cleopatra's Secret is currently only sending boxes within Finland.

Vähän aikaa sitten posti toi minulle pitkään odotetun pienen valkoisen laatikon, joka kätki sisäänsä sampanjanvärisessä silkkipaperipakkaustäytteesessä olevia kosmetiikkauutuuksia! Ihanaa, vihdoin sain tuntea olevani muinaisen Egyptin kuuluisin kuningatar! Kuningatar Kleopatra tunnettiin älykkäänä, kiehtovana ja kauniina viettelijättärenä. Kleopatraa ihailivat kuulemma sekä miehet että naiset. Teorioita Kleopatran kauneudenhoitomenetelmistä on monia, siksi mielestäni juuri tällä yllätyslaatikolla on osuva nimi. Pääsin Cleopatra's Secretin yhteistyön kautta esittelemään teille yleellisen yllärilaatikkokonseptin. Kurkistetaan nyt laatikkoon!

Cleopatra's Secret is a surprise box that one can order for oneself so that it arrives once a month, straight to one's home. The box includes a set of products that can be anything that has to do with beauty care: cosmetics, scent samples, skin care products and nail polishes. So far I've received two lovely boxes.

Cleopatra's Secret on siis kerran kuussa kotiovelle ilmestyvä yllätyslaatikko. Se sisältää pienen tuotevalikoiman, joka voi sisältää mitä tahansa kauneudenhoitoon liittyvää: mm. kosmetiikkaa, tuoksunäytteitä, ihonhoitotuotteita ja kynsilakkoja. Tähän asti olen vastaanottanut kaksi yllätysboxia. Boxit toimitetaan aina jokaisen kuukauden viimeisellä viikolla.
 

I found JOY soap, Organic Therapy's Eye Roller gel, Inglot nail polish and Marvis' toothpaste in my first box! I liked all of the products, but the toothpaste and the natural soap were my favorites!

Ensimmäisestä yllätyslaatikostani löytyi JOY Teepuu -saippuaa, Organic Therapy Eye Roller -silmänympäryysgeeliä, Inglot emaalikynsilakkaa ja Marvis Aquatic Mint -hammastahnaa! Tykkäsin kovasti kaikista tuotteista, mutta suosikkini olivat mintun makuinen hammastahna ja syväpuhdistava luomusaippua.
 

In my second box I found Dizao Organics' mascara, Peggy Sage's nail polish, Flow's soap and Inglot's makeup remover! My favorites were this time the makeup remover and the soap.

Toisessa yllätyslaatikosta löysin Dizao Organicsin mustan mascaran, Peggy Sage -kynsilakan, Flow Kosmetiikka -laventelisaippuan ja Inglot -meikinpoistoaineen! Suosikkini tässä laatikossa olivat öljytön meikinpoistoaine ja rauhoittava saippua. 

So why try Cleopatra's Secret? // Eli miksi kokeilla Cleopatra's Secretia?

1. It's a fun way to surprise and pamper oneself! // Se on hauska tapa yllättää ja hemmotella itseään!

2. The products in the boxes are each worth between €5-20, so the price for the box (€19,95/month) is very reasonable! // Yllätyslaatikon jokainen tuote on arvoltaan 5-20€ joten laatikon kuukaushinta (19,95€) on kohtuullinen.

3. Thanks to the box, I got to try new beauty products! // Kiitos laatikon, sain kokeilla uusia kauneudenhoitotuotteita!

4. If one likes the products in the box, they can easily be ordered (in Finland) from Cleopatra's Secret's webshop. // Jos ihastuu laatikon tuotteisiin, niitä voi tilata helposti lisää Cleopatra's Secret -nettikaupasta

Cleopatra's Secret -yllätyslaatikon voi tilata yrityksen nettikaupasta: http://cleopatras-secret.fi!

Have you ever tried a surprise beauty box like this?

Oletko koskaan kokeillut tämän tyyppistä yllätyslaatikkoa?

  1. yeah, our box was called glambox and I ordered a couple of boxes. then I stopped because the products got worse and worse and finally they ended this box anyway. then we had adorebox but I didn't order that because once again I found the products quite pointless. but your box looks totally awesome and I'm pretty sure I would try it if I only could :)

    1. Oh, when doing a google-search I found your blog post from 2012 where you presented your glambox. I guess I wasn't a reader yet then, because I don't remember the post.

  3. A very good idea! I knew in Germany the had a Glossy Box or something like that. I think it's what you said, a good way to try new products and if you like you can order from the online shop! I loved the name of the box too! And the makeup the model is wearing! I want to try it, maybe on my birthday next week! denisesplanet com

  5. The name reminds me of something about the real Cleopatra, some coins back in her time feature her portrait. And they aren't terribly flattering, though some marble statues make it more convincing that she was more of a beauty, gorgeous enough for powerful leaders like Ceaser and Mark Atony

  6. Those products sound lovely! I've never tried a beauty box subscription mainly because my skin is quite sensitive so I can't really try so many new products at once :)
