Memebox Seeds & Flowers

Seeds & Flowers

Congratulations guys! We made it through the brutal winds, freezing temps, and cold, cold winter! And now, we’re about to sail smooth into warmer spring season, but as the weather changes, so too should your skincare regime. With the warmer spring season bringing in a mix of gentle breezes and sunnier days, we also invite pollen, dirt, and stronger sun rays to rampage our skin and body! This box is your ticket to gorgeous, glowing skin all year long! It is literally bursting with goodies that will safeguard you from the beauty perils that come with the sunnier seasons – antioxidant-rich seeds to protect and strengthen, and flower-infused cosmetics to soothe and heal, for a glowing complexion that will be the envy of all!

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.

I got this box in a 3 box value set to get the express shipping. This set was the last order I made with Memebox which is sad. The description of it definitely appealed to me even though we are nowhere near past winter here in Ontario. Let’s see what we got!

Yadah Pure Green Emulsion 120ml ($21)

Packed with rosemary, chamomile, royal jelly, and prickly pear, this hydrating emulsion contains powerful antioxidants that stimulate microcirculation in the skin and help skin to maintain optimal levels of hydration. Chamomile and rosemary enrich this quick-acting formula to soothe and calm the skin, and royal jelly forms a protective hydration coat over the skin’s surface to lock in moisture and nutrients in the skin.

How to Use: On clean skin, take 2 to 3 pumps of emulsion and massage into the face and neck. Use daily, morning and night.

This is my first (and last) emulsion from Memebox. The description sounds pretty nice! Since it is so cold here, I could use some soothing and hydration. I have been using it for a little while now and even though I’m not sure what it’s doing yet, it hasn’t broken me out so full speed ahead!

EChoice Perfume Body Mist Dear Iris 120ml ($4)

This refreshing perfumed body mist lightly scents the skin with the clean, beautifully feminine scent of Iris flowers while providing hydration and antioxidant benefits. The fresh fragrance captures the citrusy top note, floral middle note, and a sensuous base note to lift the spirits! Never overpowering or overwhelming, the subtle fragrance hydrates the skin and enchants the spirits with lovely florals.

This scent is definitely a drugstore brand type of body mist scent, nothing really special. I know they talk about all the different notes but all I smell is the floral component. This definitely isn’t my favourite product but I’ll use it, probably as a linen spray before bed.

Sevendrops Moringa Light Sunblock 50g ($38)

This fast-absorbing, ultra-lightweight fluid provides daily protection against broad-spectrum UVA/UVB damage. Miraculous moringa tree extract combined with antioxidant-rich nutrients and UVA/UVB protecting actives to delay signs of aging caused by sun and environmental stressors. Moringa extract, a beauty essential to ancient kings and queens, was part of daily beauty routine due to its hydrating and repairing abilities. The sheer formula has a silky texture and weightless feel, designed to apply smoothly on top of other skincare products and under makeup for a soft, matte finish. 

I received a couple of samples of this in my Boxing Day 2 box but I haven’t actually tried it yet. I’m not sure what ingredients make sunblock good or bad but I’m sure this will be fine! I am still using another sunscreen but I will get to this at some point! This isn’t super exciting but it’s definitely useful!

KSkin Rose Moisture & Nutrition Facial Cream 100ml ($8)

This facial cream is formulated with Bulgarian rose, trelahose, and a range of ingredients that moisturize and brighten the complexion. Bulgarian rose, a natural source of vitamin C, helps repair the look of fine lines and skin discolourations, and provides continuous moisturization by regulating the moisture equilibrium of the skin.

I am not super thrilled with this one. An $8 facial cream may not be the best quality. I know that may sound snooty of me but compared with all of the high end facial creams Memebox has included, this seams sort of cheap. However, cost isn’t everything and this could be some holy grail product. Only one way to find out and I have other creams to use up before this one.

Enesti Rose Hip Oil Foaming Cleanser 120ml ($15)

Deeply cleanse skin and lift away impurities with this luxurious rose hip oil infused cleanser. Powered by the rose hip oil and mineral water, this non-drying formula bursts into a rich lather when activated with water to deep-clean pores, instantly refresh skin, and give you a naturally luminous glow. With gradual use, you’ll notice that skin is brighter, smoother, and younger look.

I am pretty happy with this. I definitely don’t have any shortage of cleansers but I have been happy with the Enesti products I have tried so far so I look forward to trying this. Hopefully it actually is non-drying because I do not need dry skin. I am using my products in order of expiration date so I’m not sure when I will get to this one.

Purederm Lavender Collagen Pulp Mask 18ml ($2)

100% pure pulp sheet-type masks, this famous Purederm Pulp Masks addresses the most common skincare concerns such as aging, dullness, rough textures, irritation, and dryness. When used regularly, this lavender infused mask will deliver deep nutrition and replenishment to tired, sensitive skin and help maintain a healthy, glowing complexion. 

I love a good sheet mask! I’ve never tried a pulp mask from Purederm but other Purederm masks that I’ve used have been really nice! Hopefully this actually smells like lavender, it may make for a nice before bed mask! I’m happy to have this.

I am relatively happy with this box! There are a couple of products that I am so-so about but overall I am pleased that I bought it. I paid $25 for this box and the overall value of the box was $88 which is decent!

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/
