If you have no idea what Black Box is about, well, it's not too late to find out now, I'm new to subscription boxes but I'm already loving my April Black Box! 

Anything that's black just exudes a cool and mysterious vibe and my April Black Box didn't disappoint! It's filled with functional, every day necessities that I would personally use and most of these products I've never tried! 

My favourites are the ADORE Sanitary Pads, Darlie Toothpaste and Himalaya Herbals Lip Balm because that's what I use on a day-today basis. Did I mention I used to buy and store sanitary pads from overseas because the designs available in China and Taiwan are so much more feminine and pretty than the ones available in Singapore. 

But I learnt that even pads have an expiry date!! So I've officially switched to ADORE after trying it on several occasions because, 1. It's made of cotton so it's uber comfortable and breathable even after long hours, 2.  Its strong, yet gentle food grade adhesive strips holds pad firmly in place that helps prevent side leaks when I toss and turn in bed at night! 

As for Darlie, I've been a religious user of this brand since the day I had teeth! I've never switched and I have this absurd lifelong dream of starring in a Darlie commercial since I was a young teen haha. I've always heard I have pearly white teeth and I'm not shy to say that it's because I brush my teeth 2-3 times a day and floss whenever I can. I've never undergo or used whitening products so I'm a firm believer that if you take good care of your teeth, and use Darlie, you'll never have to worry about undergoing treatments to whiten yellow, unsightly teeth! 

How can you get hold of this box?
