Memebox Detox & Renew

Detox & Renew

The cold weather months leaves us susceptible to get lazy on our skincare routine! But, did you know? The constant switching back and forth between central heating and frigid winds causes excessive dead skin build up and increases the rate at which pore-dwellers multiply and grow! While “the more the merrier” applies to most things in life, the growing party of pore-dwellers is never fun, and is definitely not a beautiful sight! To help you in your skincare predicament, we bring you our newest Detox & Renew box, perfectly curated to eliminate the deepest skin toxins, remove dead skin cells, clarify congested pores, and alleviate damage from internal and external aggressors. Each product in this box is a one-stop solution on its own, addressing everything from large pores and clogging to brightening cloudy skin! Take this box, your one and only solution for lustrous and healthy skin, use after use!

If you have not heard of Memebox, it is a Korean beauty box that contains a variety of skin care, makeup, and other beauty products. There are several types of boxes, including: memeboxes, superboxes, nakedboxes, and boxes that are set around a particular theme. The prices vary depending on the type of box that you get and can range from $15-$80 I believe. Most of the regular boxes are $23 and then you also have to pay $6.99 shipping for each box. You have to keep an eye on the shipping dates for each box because it can be months away, that way you aren’t frustrated wondering why the shipping takes so long. Please be aware that Memebox will no longer be shipping internationally. They will only ship to addresses in China, Korea, and the USA as of February 10 2015.

This is one of my last Memeboxes. I purchased it because this has been an especially cold winter and I thought it would be nice to have some extra revitalizing products. Let’s see what this box came with!

Gu:aam Method Black Pearl Protein (Conchiolin) 35 Whitening Serum 60ml ($30)

This lightweight skin-renewing serum is formulated with bifida, AHA, and black pearl protein to help support the natural cell renewal and toxin elimination. Powerful black pearl proteins eliminate toxins and dead skin cells in the skin and enhance the skin’s natural healing cycle to detox and renew the skin’s surface. The results? Skin is decongested, skin-pollutants are removed, and skin is left looking brighter and firmer, more radiant, and youthful-looking. Free of chemical preservatives, artificial fragrance, artificial colours, mineral oils, silicon oils, sulfates, parabens, and EDTA.

Considering how many Memeboxes I have gotten, I have surprisingly few serums stored away. This definitely sounds nice because every day I find myself battling dry skin in some form or another. It would be nice to get rid of all those dead skin cells and help it to heal a little bit. I am still using the serum from my Soothing Sista box but I will tuck this away to use later.

Yadah Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser 150ml ($27)

Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanse has a foaming formula that delivers gentle acne medication and improves skin’s appearance. It uses salicylic acid technology provides a long-acting acne treatment that continues to fight acne and blemishes while herbal extracts soothe and bind moisture to skin to optimize hydration and restore suppleness. The micro bubbles helps to detoxify the pores by clarifying dirt and oil build up in the pores. It also helps to control excess oil secretion to prevent breakouts. Approved by the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety administration, this cleanser is recommended as a step one cleanser in acne regime. 

I don’t suffer from acne but I do occasionally have little breakouts, which for me is a couple zits across my face. However, maybe using this type of cleanser will help prevent even those small breakouts from happening. I have so many cleansers at the moment that I am using in order of expiration date so this will join the rest of them in storage until it’s turn comes along.

Mayn Bio Mineraltox Mist 100ml ($44)

Skin looking dull, tired, lifeless? Makeup looking cakey and not setting in? Bio Mineraltox Mist refreshes, detoxifies, and rejuvenates the skin with detoxifying lemon balm, apple mint, royal jelly, and more and propriety “secret beads” made with ions and mineral water. The micro mist instantly purifies, brightens, clears, and invigorates the skin cells that have been damaged by external aggressors such as dust, alcohol consumption and more for clearer pores, and plumper skin cells, the perfect canvas for absorbing skincare products and makeup.

I haven’t tried this over makeup yet, although I really want to. I have just sprayed it on my plain face though and it really does feel quite refreshing. The smell is a little odd and I can’t put my finger on what it is but I do enjoy this product. I don’t think I would ever pay $44 for it but I am happy to have received it in this box!

IMG_20150217_140819

Araon Detox Skin Essence 100ml ($34)

This detoxifying skin essence features a blend of naturally detoxifying ingredients to eliminate even the deepest skin toxins, giving the skin a brighter, more even toned complexion. Formulated with maple water, green tea extract, and other skin detoxifying and renewing ingredients, this essence smooths, plumps, and detoxifies for luminous skin that appears visibly renewed.

For 100ml, this package feels weirdly light, almost like it is empty. However, that could just be because they used really light packaging instead of a glass bottle or something similar. Who knows, I guess I will find out when it comes time to use this because I do not want to open this and not use it for awhile. I kind of like how simple the packaging is and think it makes it look rather sleek.

IMG_20150217_140915

Esthetic House Vitamin 3000 Vitamin B Vita-Capsule Cream 30ml ($24)

This skin-renewing vitamin B cream helps to sooth irritated and inflamed. The innovative encapsulation technology allows for an effective delivery of pure potent vitamin B to soothe irritated skin, and calm red, inflamed skin. Layer individually or blend with daily moisturizer to provide optimal results and create a powerful, multipurpose product – designed to treat your skin’s unique needs. 

I feel like from the description, this may be a good product for when you are sick and get what I like to call “kleenex rash” around your nose. I find in the winter I am sick more often than any other time of the year and around my nose is so irritated, so it might be nice to see if this would help! My skin isn’t super irritated all that often so this may last me a long time.

I am pretty happy with this box! I paid $29 for this box (may have been less with coupons but I can’t quite remember) and the value of the box is a whopping $159. I think there are some great skincare products in here that I can’t wait to try!

Sorry I don’t have any coupon codes for you but if you would like to check out their website and make a purchase (until February 10 for everybody or anytime for China, Korea, and US residents), than you can do so at http://us.memebox.com/

There are several types of boxes, including: memeboxes, superboxes, nakedboxes, and boxes that are set around a particular theme. The prices vary depending on the type of box that you get and can range from $15-$80 I believe. Most of the regular boxes are $23 and then you also have to pay $6.99 shipping for each box.

Heart Face Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack 100ml ($14)

Carefully formulated through the science of fermentation, this Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack carries 100% concentrated ferments from galactomyces and natural herbal complex, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera to deeply nourish and rejuvenate the skin overnight to reveal suppler, firmer skin. The non-sticky formula absorbs quickly and smoothly and also helps treat acne prone skin.

The packaging of this is so cute, at least on the lid. I know that isn’t what really matters but hey, I can’t help but notice. Like I have said recently, I feel like I am swimming in sleeping packs at the moment but I will definitely work my way through them all. I don’t have acne prone skin but hopefully it does help give my skin some moisture!

IMG_20150130_110553IMG_20150130_110637

MYPU; Black Pearl & Gold Velvet Gel Eye Patch 1.1g X 60ea ($30)

Each Black Pearl & Gold Velvet Gel Eye Patch is formulated with a blend of premium collagen, hyaluronic acid, black pearl extracts and other essential concentrates to keep your under-eye skin moist, soft and firm. Revive a healthier you by deeply soothing and treating dark circles and fine wrinkles under eyes!

How to Use: Cleanse face thoroughly. Place the gel patches under eyes. Remove after 20-30 minutes. Pat in the remaining essence.

These are beautiful. I had to take a slightly less beautiful picture so that you could see the shimmer (ignore my horrible nail polish in this picture). I tried these patches out and they feel quite nice actually! I am going to enjoy using these, especially because my under eyes are a point of concern for me.

Avec Moi Mask 4 Set ($33)

IMG_20150130_110822

Pony Tail Silky Treatment Pack (8g)

Experience hair salon results at home with a rich blend of pito collagen, bean protein, silk protein, botanical plus-10, argan oil, shea butter, and royal jelly. This hair treatment pack is easy to wear with no need to rinse off afterwards and most importantly deeply nourishes, softens, and strengthens your hair dehydrated and damaged from all those years of blow-drying and hair dyes.

How to Use: Tie up your hair into a high pony tail and place the pony tail into the hair pack, fastening the opening with the provided hair elastic to hold it in place. Gently massage to facilitate absorption of nutrients. Take off the pack after 5-30 minutes.

I haven’t used any actual hair packs that sit over your hair before. I am interested in this and will definitely try it out. I’m not sure if your hair is supposed to be wet or dry before you use this but I want to assume wet so it acts as a leave-in conditioner sort of thing.

IMG_20150130_110849

Shea Butter Special Care Foot Mask (16g)

This is a deeply moisturizing foot mask enriched with shea butter, macadamia oil, vitamin E, and fresh herbal complex to replenish and soften dry, calloused skin on your foot. Its gently formula is free of paraben, benzophenone, artificial pigment, etc.

How to Use: Wash both feet thoroughly. Separate the foot mask along the dotted line and wear each on each foot, fastening with the provided sticker. It’s recommended to massage the feet to facilitate absorption of nutrients. Remove after 15-20 minutes.

I’m excited about this! My feet do tend to be dry in the winter so I think this will be nice. I do have a foot peeling mask that I need to use as well but this will be good for when my feet aren’t past the point of no return like that one will.

IMG_20150130_110832

Camellia Special Care Hand Mask (16g)

This is a pair of replenishing hand masks formulated from a nourishing blend of camellia extracts, collagen, vitamin E, argan oil, and natural herbal complex. They’re easy to wear and leave dry, rough hands significantly softer and suppler.

How to Use: Wash hands thoroughly. Separate the hand mask along the dotted line and wear each on each hand. Gently massage both hands together. Remove after 15-20 minutes.

This is another one that I’m excited about. Despite my incessant hand lotioning, I have been noticing lately that my hands are just getting more and more dry. I’m hoping this will make a real difference. If it does than I will probably be pretty sad that I only had one pair!

IMG_20150130_110809

Intensive Nail Pack (4.5g)

This Intensive Nail Pack is made with cacao seed butter, milk protein, hydrolyzed bean protein, hydrolyzed collagen, honey, macadamia oil, and more naturally derived ingredients for delivering intensive moisture resurge and rich nourishment to dry, cracked nails.

How to Use: Wash hands thoroughly. Separate the nail pack into 10 smaller packs and wear them over each finger. Remove after 15-20 minutes.

My nails/cuticles are pretty well moisturized from my use of cuticle butter but I won’t turn down some extra help here and there! There are some great ingredients in this that I think will do an awesome job!

IMG_20150130_111024

D’Ran Wonder Lifting Eye Cream 25g ($35)

This Wonder Lifting Eye Cream from D’Ran will brighten and firm up the dry, thin skin around your eyes. Enriched with a moisturizing blend of beta glucan, macadamia seed oil, argan oil, jojoba seed oil, and EGF, it gently protects the sensitive skin while replenishing and balancing out the skin tone from within.

I have several eye creams stored away at the moment and they do tend to last me awhile so I am set for eye cream for awhile. I do like the sound of this though especially because it talks about helping dry skin because I do tend to have dry skin.

IMG_20150130_111121

Tosowoong Natural Pure Snail Essence 60ml ($24)

With its formula consisting 20% of pure snail mucin filtrates and 40% of fresh birch tree leaf water, this Natural Pure Snail Essence from Tosowoong is a miracle worker for skin brightening and anti-wrinkle results. It not only moisturizes and firms up dry, sagging skin but also helps fight all sorts of skin problems – acne, blemishes, uneven moisture & oil balance, etc.

How to Use: Apply the essence over your face after toner application. Gently pat it in for full absorbance. Follow with emulsion and/or cream.

People always rave about snail products and what they can do to help your skin. I still haven’t tried any snail products other than one sheet mask but I’m excited that this is an essence! I am working my way through an essence right now but didn’t have a back up so this is great!  It sounds like it is a cure all for your skin so I hope it lives up to the claims.

IMG_20150130_111153

Switch Patch Elephant 3-Step! Black Head Nose Pack 7g ($3)

This is an easy 3-step nose pack for opening up, unclogging, and tightening back your pores for treating excess blackheads on the nose. The step 1 is a cotton mask sheet enriched with witch hazel water, lemon balm extracts, and grapefruit extracts and works to melt and extract the excess blackhead and sebum. The step 2 is a peel-off type nose pack made from lemon extracts and aloe vera leaf water. Lastly, the step 3 bio-cellulose mask sheet stretches out 8cm and effectively soothes and firms back the enlarged pores with a gentle blend of lavender, chamomile, and eucalyptus extracts.

How to Use: Place the step 1 sheet over clean nose and remove after 15-20 minutes. Wet nose with a little bit of water and place the step 2 sheet over. Remove after 10-15 minutes. Then again place the step 3 sheet over nose and remove after 5-10 minutes.

This sounds really intensive and awesome to be honest. I am excited for all these different steps and hope that it does a great job. The only blackhead treatment strips I have tried are the Bioré strips and I like those so I look forward to trying to treatment.

This is another box that I was really impressed with. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect with this one, night care is a vague idea and knowing Memebox, they could have taken it anywhere. I paid $21 for this box plus the $6.99 shipping and the suggested retail value of the products is $139. Wow! I am definitely glad that I bought this one and I will use all of the products in it.

Sorry I don’t have any coupon codes for you but if you would like to check out their website and make a purchase (until February 10 for everybody or anytime for China, Korea, and US residents), than you can do so at http://us.memebox.com/

Memebox #51 Citrus Care

Citrus Care

Zesty citrus fruits are prime beauty-boosting ingredients in tons of beauty products, and for a good reason! Loaded with collagen-boosting Vitamin C and skin brightening natural acids, citrus fruits are skin and body-savers that halt the signs of aging and promote supple skin! When collagen production starts to slow down (at age 35! Tear…) and skin becomes congested and damaged from years of exposure to external aggressors and free radical damage, fundamental citrus components step up their game to stop aging and damage in its tracks! The results? You’ll have a radiant and youthful flow, and your friends will be able to spot you from miles away! Plus, the unique blend of zesty citrusy fragrances will evoke an energetic mood and lift your spirits!

If you have not heard of Memebox, it is a Korean beauty box that contains a variety of skin care, makeup, and other beauty products. There are several types of boxes, including: memeboxes, superboxes, nakedboxes, and boxes that are set around a particular theme. The prices vary depending on the type of box that you get and can range from $15-$80 I believe. Most of the regular boxes are $23 and then you also have to pay $6.99 shipping for each box. You have to keep an eye on the shipping dates for each box because it can be months away, that way you aren’t frustrated wondering why the shipping takes so long. Sometimes if boxes are due to ship at the same time, they will have bundles so that there is only one shipping cost.

When I first started purchasing Memeboxes, this was one that had already been sold out which made me sad. I absolutely love citrus and wished that I could have gotten this box. Fortunately for me, it was one of the boxes that came up in the Black Friday restock so I snatched one up right away and I’m glad that I did! I actually had my tracking numbers mixed up so I thought I was getting my Black Friday 3 box and it turned out to be this which was a nice surprise.

IMG_20141217_134402

IMG_20141217_134420IMG_20141217_134429

Let’s see what I got in this box!

IMG_20141217_134514

Unni Recipe Vitamin Recharger Essence 55 ml ($18)

A vitamin recharging, tone brightening essence that enriches dull, dehydrated skin with 6 different vitamins, lemon extracts, orange extracts, grapefruit extracts, lime extracts, and niacinamide.

How to Use: Apply directly to face after toner application and pat it in for full absorbance

This is my first essence! My Memebox addiction is really helping me develop an extravagant skincare routine. I only got this box today and I started using it already. With the cold winter months showing up, I can use all the brightening and enriching that I can get for my skin. This has a fairly pleasant smell and it is thicker than I expected an essence to be. I’m really excited to see what this does for my face!

IMG_20141217_134629

The Yeon All Day Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ 50 ml ($17)

With no whitening effect and lightweight in texture, the All Day Sun Cream effectively yet gently protects the skin from UV exposure while replenishing with its blend of aloe vera leaf, broccoli, orange peel, kiwi, lemon grass, and avocado extracts.

How to Use: Apply evenly over face before foundation application

I just got my first sun block from Memebox in my Black Friday 1 box and I am happy to have both of them. Like the other, this is a fairly small sized sun block but during the winter I will only use it on my face so it should last a little while. I’m not sure if this one has a scent or not, I have kept it sealed since I am currently using the other sun block.

IMG_20141217_134725

Tonymoly Clean Dew Red Grapefruit Foam Cleanser 180 ml ($4)

This gently cream-to-foam cleanser packed with dewy red grapefruit extracts penetrates deep into the pores without over-drying to gently remove makeup, dissolve impurities and purify the skin for a firmer, healthier-looking complexion.

I kept this one sealed because I need to finish my Skinfood cleanser first. I want to open this and smell it so badly though because I love the smell of grapefruit and I’m hoping this is nice and citrusy. Cleansers are always something I will use so I am happy to have this!

IMG_20141217_134814

Mizon Refresh Time Grapefruit Body Wash 200 ml ($14)

A refreshing body cleanser designed to deep cleanse, moisturize and nurture skin with a lively grapefruit fragrance. Rejuvenate and de-stress with this Vitamin C rich formula!

Once again, this is something I kept sealed for the time being. I am doing a 2015 Project Pan and once that post is uploaded, you will see that I have a couple of body washes that need to be used up. I may need to see if any of them could work as a bubble bath just to get through them all. I also hope that this one smells grapefruity because that would just be amazing!

IMG_20141217_134958

Vivito Make-Up Starter Intro 70g ($35)

Melt away dead skin flakes and replenish moisture in just 10 seconds with the Make-up Starter Intro pad! This skin scaling pad shaped like a flower petal contains citric acid which helps exfoliate dead skin cells and also lavender water which delivers a deeply hydrating and soothing effect. Plus, it’ll leave an aromatic lavender fragrance lingering behind for a lasting pleasance.

How to Use: Swipe away dead skin cells and skin impurities with the dotted front side of the pad and then recharge with moisture with the flat side of the pad. Use it before going to bed or before make up application.

I am quite interested in this product. I have never used anything like it so I am interested in seeing if it actually makes a difference in my skin or not. The winter is definitely the best time to experiment with this kind of thing since my skin gets so dry. I did pop this one open and it has quite a nice scent to it so I am excited to try it!

IMG_20141217_135052

Vivito Painting Sweet Lip Balm Orange Farm 12g ($24)

Formulated with orange peel oil, grape extracts, blackberry extracts, and Vitamin E, this Painting Sweet Lip Balm works to moisturize and revive dry, chapped lips. It’s scented with a sweet fruity fragrance and its unique jelly-like balm texture is also a fun, unique feature to take note of.

I received the Grape Farm version of this product in one of my Thanksgiving boxes and haven’t used it too much. The orange version smells lovely and it has a much more subtle tint to it than the grape version does. I have too many balms on the go at the moment so this may not get used for a little while.

Overall I am very happy with this box. I did know what was coming in it before I ordered so if I were unhappy, that would be my own fault for purchasing it. When I bought this, I had a lot of Memepoints and had a coupon code as well so I managed to get this for only $15 including shipping which is great! The overall retail value for this box is $112 which is well above what I paid for it!
