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!

IMG_20150217_142126

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.

IMG_20150217_142215

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.

IMG_20150217_142245

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/

Memebox Thanksgiving Box Collection #1 For Me

Thanksgiving 1

Put this on your own wish list: K-Beauty junkies will go nuts over this limited edition “Thanksgiving Box Collection #1 For Me”! Everyone knows the best gifts are the ones you get yourself, so say thanks to yourself this 2014 Thanksgiving season, packed with the perfect collection of K-Beauty selects. Considering all the 2014 stress-think overtime work, juggling 2 kids, and cramming for finals week- you really, really deserve it! Memebox put together a special box full of holy grail K-Beauty goodies that we want to gift you this Thanksgiving season!

I am way too excited that my Thanksgiving bundle has arrived! I only bought it last week and I was still far too impatient waiting for it, especially when I was trying to avoid the spoilers online. I bought this box in a bundle with the Thanksgiving Collection #2 For You box for $58.99 including the $6.99 shipping (with free upgrade to express shipping). I also had a coupon code so it cost me a total of $48.99 for both boxes (about 24.50 per box including shipping).

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. Let’s take a look at the first Thanksgiving box!

This box is so bright and colourful, I absolutely love it!

Clio Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip #22 Electric 3.5 g ($10)

A pop of orange under daylight, Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip in #22 Electric transforms into a glow-in-the-dark electric orange under blue LED lights. Its feathery lightweight formula glides onto lips smoothly and stains it with the colour radiance and adherence of a matte lipstick. Plus, its vivid colour formation is based on safflower components which were used as natural lip steins by Korean geishas back in the days.

This was the spoiler product for this box and I have to say, I just wasn’t excited about it. I love lipsticks but orange is not a colour that I can wear, especially not one that is this orange. I am intrigued to see what it looks like under LED lights but I think there are so many colours they could have given us that would have been better than this one.

Jaminkyung Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner 110 ml ($46)

Jaminkyung is a Korean natural cosmetics company with its brand value set on achieving ‘lasting beauty’ through a combination of naturally-derived quality ingredients and its safe & effective manufacturing technology. The Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner is a 2Phase essence type toner with a blend of lightweight whole grain-infused toner and deeply nourishing camellia oil in a 6:4 golden ratio. It will deliver a rich moisture boost while controlling the moisture/oil balance for dry, sensitive skin.

How to Use: After cleansing, gently wipe away with a cotton pad soaked with Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner.

I am excited about this product. The packaging is beautiful and it is absolutely huge! I feel like it will take me forever to get through this. I do have my Skinfood Tomato toner to get through first but this is definitely next in line! From what I have found, some of the ingredients in this toner are: camellia oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, barley, black sesame seed extracts, and other types of grain extracts.

803 803 Cream 50g ($34)

The 803 cream series is specifically designed so that each cream targets different parts of the face. They’re all enriched with shea butter, adenosine, adipophilin, niacinamide, and borphilin which have skin effective brightening and firming functions. The Palzza Cream works to firm up and fill in the deepening ‘smile lines’ that run from nose down to the corners of mouth. The Sam N Cream targets dry, sagging neckline with a blend of purified caffeine and collagen extracts. The Young Cream is a moisture booster for face and body.

So this came in 803 Palzza Cream, 803 Sam N Cream, or 803 Young Cream. I got the 803 Sam N Cream which is made to be used on your neckline and has caffeine and collagen extracts. I usually just use what is left on my hands while moisturizing my face, and bring it down to my neck. It could be interesting to see if this cream does anything for my neckline. At 25, I haven’t noticed my neckline sagging or anything but this is the time to start worrying about preventative aging products so I will definitely give it a try!

Sally’s Box 4 Set [Love Recipe Apple Mask 20 ml + Delight Panthenol Hydrogel Mask 25g + Delight Ceramide Hydrogel Mask 25g + Delight Collagen Hydrogel Mask 25g] ($13)

The Love Recipe Apple Mask is enriched with abundant apple extracts for soothing and balancing out rough skin texture and delivering moisture and nutrition into the skin. The 3 Delight Hydrogel masks are made from the ‘garden complex’ containing more than 10 herbal ingredients from Mother Nature and each work to deeply hydrate, firm up, and relieve coarse, thirsty skin.

How to Use: Place the mask over clean face and rest for 15-20 minutes. Remove the mask and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbance. 

There is no way to express how excited I am about these! After ordering these boxes, I couldn’t help but hope there would be at least one type of mask in them because I haven’t been able to try any sheet or gel masks yet. I certainly didn’t expect to get a 4 pack of masks, and all different ones too! So excited!!! I can’t wait to try these, I may use one today after I shower.

Tonymoly Hello Bunny Perfume Bar 02 9g ($11)

A stick-type perfume bar packaged into a lovely bunny design. It’s infused with a top note of lemon citrus, a middle note of frisia and white rose, and a bottom note of sandalwood and musk.

I don’t think that I am a fan of this scent which makes me a little sad. In all of the fan forums, I have seen people rave about Tonymoly products and I was excited that I had gotten one. When I was reading the description, I thought it sounded nice and hoped it would be mostly citrusy. Unfortunately it is the musky sandalwood that I smell the most so i am not crazy about it. I do love the little bunny bow-tie though. I may need to find a loving home for this little guy.

Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam 75 ml ($8)

Abundant, cream-like foam bubbles penetrate deep into your pores, cleansing away any makeup residues, skin impurities, blackheads, and dead skin cells piled up and leaving your skin freshly cleaned, moist, and brighter overall.

Lately I have been enjoying trying different cleansers so I am excited to try this one! I am currently using my Skinfood Egg White Pore Meringue Foam Cleanser but this will definitely be the next one that I try. At this rate, I am never going to run out of cleansers and toners with Memebox and I love it! I hope this one smells nice, I didn’t open it yet because I am still using my other cleanser.

Pisteo Bright & Pure C Serum 7ml ($25)

Made up of pure Vitamin C concentrates, this tiny bottle of nutrients will replenish moisture balance, firm up fine wrinkles, and brighten overall complexion with continuous application.

How to Use: Replace the flat lid of the serum with a taller lid with a pipette and a cap over the top. Squeeze out a penny-size amount and massage it onto clean face.

This serum normally comes with four 7ml bottles which is worth $100 so this one bottle is worth $25. I have only just delved into the world of serums recently when I received a sample serum in my Topbox so I am excited to have this for when the sample runs out. I like that they provide you with the pipette top to use on this bottle. I didn’t notice any real smell to it which is better than it having an offensive smell. I will definitely be trying this one soon!

Those are all of the products in the Thanksgiving #1 box and I am really happy with it! In terms of value, I paid about $24.50 for this box (including shipping) and I received products totally $147 value. I am super happy with this and will get lots of use out of almost all of the products in the box. It is only the lipstick and the perfume bar that I am iffy about.
