Memebox Collaboration #9 Soothing Sista

Soothing Sista

Soothing Sista knows how to rock a look. Most often found on the streets of San Francisco, she is taking the YouTube world by storm with her skincare, makeup, and fashion tutorials. Showcasing looks for the edgier goddess in you, Soothing Sista, isn’t afraid to take a risk. She’s hand-picked hottest skincare and makeup products of the month straight from Korea, which we’re sure you’ll love!

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 picked this box up in a restock and I was glad it came up because it was on my wish list. When this box was originally released, I knew what was inside it and I considered purchasing it but that was before I was really on the Memebox bandwagon. Afterwards though, I was reading blog posts about it and regretted not buying it! I was happy to be able to get my hands on it.

Vicioni Super Aqua Soothing Serum 30ml ($29)

No carbomer, no silicon, no artificial ingredients, and no chemical preservatives whatsoever. It’s true that Vicioni Super Aqua Soothing Serum may smell less than pleasant and not as quick to absorb as that of other brands. However, this is because Vicioni takes great care in selecting only skin beneficial, non-chemical ingredients for its 100% natural formula. It contains high concentrates of ‘caulerpa racemosa’ (also known as ‘sea grape and rich in sea minerals, vitamins, and nutrients), rice bran, hyaluronic acid, mushroom ferments, aloe vera, etc. The ocean will deeply replenish, brighten up, and smoothen dry, dulled complexion. 

This sounds wonderful! I don’t have a serum on the go at the moment so I will definitely be putting this to good use. I am a little concerned about the fact that they say it smells less than pleasant considering it will be all over my face. I haven’t used it yet so I’m not sure how it actually smells but we will find out soon enough. Not related to how the product works, I love the packaging of this serum. I think it’s absolutely beautiful! I look forward to trying this out.

Tonymoly Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm 30g ($11)

A self-heating steam balm that opens up clogged pores by warming the skin with its blend of sulfur hot spring water and heating agent the more you massage it onto face. Then 3 kinds of scrubs – white salt, charcoal powders, and egg yolk – work to thoroughly remove all blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin cells piled up inside enlarged pores. Rich in calcium, various minerals, acetic acid, amino acid, and vitamins, it also delivers deep nourishment, control excess sebum, and prevent skin dehydration.

How to Use: Apply the steam balm over nose area. (Make sure to towel-dry after cleansing) Gently massage for 3-5 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water when the translucent oil balm turns opaque. Recommended to be used once or twice a week.

I am definitely drawn to this because I love clearing out my pores. I’m aware that this is a super weird thing to say but I said it so it’s out there now. I’m not quite sure how this works, it is more like a cream or like a grommage kind of peeling action but I am excited to try it out! I have such a hard time deciding every day which types of masks to use and this will just be added to the pile of indecision.

IMG_20150204_141424

Shara Shara Mineral Capsule Cream 50ml ($18)

This Miracle Capsule Cream is an anti-wrinkle moisturizer enriched with glacier water and nourishing capsules containing 24 kinds of oil complex. Deliver instant moisture surge and supple firmness to dry, tired face as if letting the skin take a rejuvenating winter sleep! It will take care of dry patches and protect from external damages by locking in moisture within skin.

I haven’t opened this because I still have creams on the go so I don’t want to expose this to the air just yet. For whatever reason, the inclusion of glacial water just makes it sound so nice and refreshing. My skin is kind of normal to dry so this will be really nice! I have tried the Shara Shara balm and really like it so I’m sure I will like this too!

IMG_20150204_141641

Etude House Goodbye Pore Ever Primer Essence 20ml ($11)

Quickly minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines and help makeup adhere better for a long-lasting finish. The silky, lightweight formula can be worn under makeup to fill in uneven skin texture and visible pores, creating a smoother-than-smooth canvas and mattifying excessive oil and shine. Its gently formula consists of both sebum control powder and moisturizing essence component, thus is works to control excess sebum while maintaining a healthy moisture balance at the same time.

I have yet to find my holy grail primer and I am hoping that this might be it! My problem is that I have large pores and so foundations and BB creams settle right into my pores and it just looks awful. Other people may not notice it unless they are right up close but it is on my mind! I would love to have this actually settle into my pores so my makeup can sit smoothly on top. Maybe this is just wishful thinking but we will see how it measures up!

IMG_20150204_141712

Dewytree Deep Detox Black Mask 1ea ($3)

A facial mask that clarifies skin pores and rejuvenates dull skin with volcanic scoria clay from Jeju Island containing rare minerals. It’s also formulated with charcoal powder, papaya extracts, grapefruit extracts, walnut shell powder, and centella asiatica extracts to detoxify and revitalize the skin.

How to Use: Wash your face and remove makeup and any environmental toxins. Gently unfold mask and place on your face, adjust the eyes, nose and mouth opening. Relax for 15-20 minutes with the mask in place. No need to rinse, massage remaining product into your face.

Ever since I have been involved with Memebox, I have been intrigued by these black masks. They have such nice sounding ingredients in them and people seem to really enjoy using them. I haven’t tried this yet but I do know they look absolutely horrific when they are on your face since the sheet mask itself is black. I find it pretty funny but if you are walking around your house with it on, you may scare your family.

IMG_20150204_141821IMG_20150204_141850

Vivito Painting Matte Finish Lip Stick 1ea ($30)

A 3-effect matte lipstick that smoothly glides on with a creamy texture, steins lips with a highly pigmented, radiant colour in just a single swipe, and leaves lips velvety soft and super matte without being dry and flaky.

I am obsessed with this lipstick. There were 5 possible options: RD01 Sour Red, RD02 Red Sun, RD03 Red Ribbon, PP01 Raspberry Purple, PP02 Orchid Purple. I was kind of hoping for the Raspberry Purple but I got Red Sun. I was a little disappointed at first but after wearing this, I love it! This is a pink toned red and it wears so nicely! It definitely does not feel drying and the colour looks beautiful. I have already been looking online to see if I can get other colours at a decent price. If you know of anywhere, let me know in the comments!

IMG_20150204_141957

Revecen Blooming Collagentox Sleeping Water Pack 90ml ($18)

A nourishing sleeping facial pack formulated with snail mucus extracts, bird nest extracts, aloe vera leaf extracts, orange zests, Japanese prickly ash berries, pasque flower extracts, usnea extracts, and cypress water. Yellow vitamin capsules will absorb deep into skin to replenish, firm up and balance out uneven skin tone.

I have quite the collection of sleeping packs. At the rate I actually use them, I may never go through all of the ones that I have stashed away. The packaging of this sleeping pack is quite nice, I definitely wouldn’t mind having it sitting on my vanity. There are so many really interesting ingredients in this one, namely bird nest extracts. What does that even mean? Very interesting indeed. I look forward to trying this one!

I am so happy that I was able to get my hands on this box! It sold out really quickly during the restock and some people were refunded for theirs so I am glad that I was one of the lucky ones who got it. I paid $21 for this box plus $6.99 for shipping and the retail value for the products is $120. This is definitely one of the best boxes that I have purchased!!

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/

TesterKorea Haul

TK Haul 1

I would like to start off my saying that I apologize in advance for the qualities of pictures in this post. I just don’t have a great space for pictures taking up large spaces so I had to make do. This means they may be a little blurry, a little shiny, let’s just pretend it’s artistic or something.

Now that the apology is out of the way, I can say how excited I am about this order! It took a little while for the order to be fulfilled. I ordered it on January 1 and it was shipped on the 15. However, I received it on January 20 because I shipped EMS which means it was express!

TesterKorea has a kind of permanent sale for members meaning that for their brand sale, all members get 30% off of everything. There was also a little bit of a deal with shipping so I took advantage of that. It ended up being somewhere between $50 and $60 for 86 masks so that is a great deal!

Nature Republic Eyeliner

TesterKorea is pretty known for the samples that they give out with their orders. I was pretty excited to see what I would get, especially because my order was so large. Some people had said lately that because of a sale they had, they had just been giving people like 20 samples of the same product so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

I didn’t actually get any samples with my order but did get a full size Nature Republic Fly to the Moon Liquid Eyeliner in Black. I haven’t swatched it yet because I have a couple liquid eyeliners on the go at the moment. I am pretty happy with this! Anything that is given for free is a bonus so I definitely couldn’t be disappointed!

I am really happy with my order! I know it took a long time to get the order shipped but it was still around the holidays and during a sale so that is okay. I know there was a lot to read above but I wanted you guys to know what each mask was for in case you were interested in them! I am so excited to try all of these out since I am so obsessed with sheet masks in general! If you have tried any of these masks, let me know what you thought of them! Thanks for reading 🙂

Memebox Boxing Day Special #2

Boxing Day 2

Boxing day Special Box #2 is sure to be a delight! This super special box bursts with 10 deluxe miniatures and 1 full-sized item for only $12! It’s got everything from cleansing essentials, complexion-perfectors, and salon quality hair treatments that is sure to level up your beauty!

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.

The reason that I bought this box was because it was so cheap and there would be so many products inside. Memebox promised 10 miniature products and 1 full sized product to be in the box. I know that some people were a little skeptical about this, myself included, because they were afraid the miniatures might not be any good. Let’s see what we got!

Boxing Day 2

Derma B Lotion

Derma B Fresh Moisture Body Lotion 50 ml ($2.38)

A nourishing body lotion targeting dry and sensitive skin types. It’s infused with tea tree, peppermint, bergamot, ginger, and amber notes in a refreshing herbal blend. Its gentle formula is non-sticky, fast-absorbing, and best kept refrigerated.

I wouldn’t say that this is necessarily the most exciting product in the world but it definitely is useful for this time of year! My skin is always so dry, particularly after showering, so I will put this to good use for sure! I’m not sure what it smells like because I did not open it yet, but hopefully it won’t be too herbal smelling.

The full size is 400ml and retails for $19.

Claypatra

Banila Co. Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay Pack 12g x 2ea ($5.28)

The 100% pure mud extracted straight from the Dead Sea (consists 32% of salt and minerals) effectively removes any excess sebum, oil, dead skin cells, and external pollutants clogged up in the pores. The mineral-rich formula also delivers deep hydration and nourishment to dry, dull skin.

How to Use: Spread the clay pack evenly over clean face. Rest for 10 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Gently massage with your finger tips to exfoliate dead skin cells while rinsing.

I am really excited to receive this product! I have seen tons of people with it since I started getting Memebox and always kind of wanted to try it. These are small pots so I am glad that they gave us 2 of them. I was worried that since there are 2 pots, that these counted as 2 of the miniatures but they only count as one which is amazing! I am definitely going to be trying this soon.

The full size is 100g and retails for $22.

Hanskin

Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB SPF30 PA++ 5ml ($7.71)

Hanskin’s famous Royal Ampoule BB cream is packed with rich nutrients from royal jelly extracts and it lightly glides over your skin when applied, leaving a visibly silkier, brightened complexion.

How to Use: Apply a single drop evenly over clean face. Blend it in using your fingers.

At first when I looked at this, I apparently stopped reading, and only thought it was an ampoule but apparently it is a BB cream. I am curious to see how a single drop of this is going to provide any kind of coverage but we will see. Like I said in a previous post, I have so many BB creams lying around so I am trying to use the open ones before I get to these new ones.

The full size is 35 ml and retails for $54.

Tonymoly BCDation

Tonymoly BCDation All Master SPF30 PA++ 20 g ($9.60)

This multi-functional BCDation from Tonymoly is a makeup base, a BB cream, a CC cream, and a foundation all in one. It not only corrects, blurs, and balances out the skin tone but also moisturizes, lifts, and adds extra volume for a silky smooth 3D complexion.

How to Use: Apply a pearl-sized amount evenly over clean face. Apply more onto T-zone and under eye areas for highlighting effect. Follow with powder application.

Here is another BB Cream. All of the ones that I have received lately do not have shades so I am assuming it is one that kind of adapts to your skin tone. That or they will all look really funny and mismatched on me, only one way to find out though! I am hoping that this really does blur the skin tone, maybe give a bit of that airbrushed look. This is probably way too much to ask for though. We will see how things go once I crack this bad boy open.

The full size is 50g and retails for $24.

Clean It Zero

Banila Co. Clean It Zero 7g x 4ea ($6.16)

This makeup remover goes on as a sherbet-like balm and transforms into a silky oil that effortlessly dissolves makeup and sunscreen. Its non-greasy, gently formula made from papaya, acerola, and herbal extracts cleanse thoroughly without dehydrating the skin.

How to Use: Take out the formula with the spatula and gently massage into skin. Rinse off with water or wipe away with a tissue.

This is another product that I am super excited to have! I have seen so many people rave about these little oil cleansers that I almost bought it off of someones swap/sell board just so I can try it. Obviously now I am glad that I didn’t. We received 4 little pots of this which should definitely be enough to gather an opinion on the product. These didn’t come with a spatula that I could see but that’s okay since it is a sample. I have not tried any oil cleansers yet so I can’t wait to crack into these!

The full size is 100 ml and retails for $22.

Dr Young Cleansing Gel

Dr. Young Pore Syok-Syok Cleansing Gel 15ml x 2ea ($5.60)

This gel-type deep cleanser penetrates deep down into pores to remove all excess oil, dirt, impurities, and sebum clogged up inside. A blend of morus bark, agrimonia eupatoria root extracts, and lime extracts deliver gentle yet effective sebum control and pore care. It’s oil-free, lightweight, and moisturizing as well.

This is a useful product but not one that I am super excited about. I am not the biggest fan of gel cleansers but I will still use them. On the bright side, Memebox did give us 2 little tubes which is nice because it gives you a good chance to try the product out over some time.

The full size is 150 ml and retails for $28.

Dinoplatz CC

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City 10 ml ($10)

Delivering abundant nutrition and moisture to your skin for an egg-smooth texture, this multi-functional CC cream will brighten up your complexion, protect from the sun, and take care of signs of aging as well.

How to Use: Evenly spread the CC cream all over clean, well moisturized face. Blend it in with your hands for better adherence to skin.

The packaging of this is just adorable. I feel like I shouldn’t be as excited about it as I am but who cares. I have never tried a CC cream and am not sure how the formula differs from a BB cream. If you know, let me know in the comments below. At the moment, I am going to assume it is mostly like a BB cream and keep it sealed up until I get through some of my current BB creams.

The full size is 30 ml and retails for $30.

Perfect Repair

Mise En Scene Perfect Repair Treatment Pack 180ml ($16)

A simple 2-step hair care – shampoo and rinse – isn’t enough as the weather becomes chillier and drier. Twice a week, use this nourishing Perfect Repair Treatment Pack to deliver deep nutrition and repair and protect damaged hair ends.

How to Use: After shampoo, apply the treatment pack throughout your hair and rinse off after 2-3 minutes.

This was the full size product in the box which will be great if it does what it says it is supposed to. I have said before that I am trying to grow my hair out a bit which means that my ends aren’t in the greatest shape. I would love if this could work some magic on the ends of my hair so it can look nice and healthy. It does not specify how many times a week this should be used so it almost seems like it is alright to use daily. I look forward to trying this!

Seven Drops

Seven Drops High Protection Moringa Light Sunblock SPF50+ PA+++ 7g ($5.32)

A lightweight sunblock enriched with nourishing moringa extracts. The 100% naturally derived formula is extremely gentle to all skin types and free of paraben, mineral oil, benzophenone, silicon, and talc. It provides high level of UV protection and the light formula absorbs easily and smoothly into the skin like an essence and leaves skin with a lingering moringa scent.

This is such a cute little trial size of this product. I have a sunblock on the go already and 2 or 3 waiting in the wings but this will definitely join the list of sunblocks to use. These will definitely come in handy when the weather gets warm enough that I actually want to leave my house.

Anti Hair Loss Treatment

RYO Anti Hair Loss Treatment 50 ml ($3)

Infused with biota seed, coix seed, green tea and gold extracts, this hair treatment will not only prevent hair loss but also re-energize and strengthen thin, damaged hair. Its excellent cooling formula will gently soothe and nourish your scalp at the same time.

How to Use: Apply generously over wet hair and massage the scalp with your fingertips. Wait for 2-3 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Use daily.

This is an interesting product. I wouldn’t say I have any hair loss other than daily loss that everyone has but my hair is fairly thin so I wonder if this can actually do anything to help that. I am glad that they specified that it is okay to use daily because with intensive treatments you never really know. I am a little bit skeptical of this but I will definitely try it!

The full size is 200 ml and retails for $12.

Witchs PouchWitchs Pouch Swatch

Witch’s Pouch Radiant Lolli Tint 03 Funky Bloom 2.5g ($7.78)

This is a 3 in 1 must-have lip item that brings together the glossiness of lip glosses, naturally blending formula of lip tints, and the colourful radiance of lipsticks. It melts onto lips for a lasting pigmentation that instantly lights up your complexion with funky hot pink radiance.

How to Use: Apply directly to inner center of your lip and blend it outwards.

I have seen this before in Memebox unboxings and when I opened the package I was a little bit concerned about the colour. It is pretty pigmented but not as much as I thought it would be which is kind of a good thing to be honest. I do really like this colour though and think that it will be great for the spring and summer! Or perhaps even on a winter day when I want to pretend that it is summer (which is most winter days). When I swatched this on my hand, it looked quite shiny but when I touched it, it didn’t smudge. Almost like the colour had dried to be a tint and then there was still a gloss kind of finish on top. I am very intrigued by this and can’t wait to try it on my lips!

So for this box I only paid $12 and received a suggested retail value of $62.83. People were quite nervous about this box but I am really excited! I think that this is an absolutely great box and I loved that there were so many products inside. I know that it is great getting full sized products in Memeboxes but I think it would be neat if they did a box like this every once in awhile so could try out a bunch of new products! I am a very happy camper 🙂

Memebox Black Friday Special Edition #2

Black Friday 2

Pamper a special someone with our new Black Friday Special Editions each packed with 5~7 full sized makeup and skincare miracles all for ONLY $19!!  

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.

I ordered the Black Friday boxes 1, 2 and 3 and the descriptions for all of them were the same and quite vague so I wasn’t sure what we would get. They shipped them all separately so I finally got my last box which is #2. Let’s see what came in this box!

Black Friday 2 Box

Lately Memebox has been sending out boxes without cards and have been sending out emails with online information cards instead. This was one of those boxes so you will have to trust that I’m not making up the descriptions for each product.

Blanc Doux Sunscreen

Blanc Doux Pinot Noir UV Shield & Tone-Up Sensitive 40 ml ($36)

No more blemish-instigating, oily sunscreens! Specially formulated from a strong antioxidant – premium red wine ‘Pinot Noir’ – this mild, moisturizing sunblock not only provides moderate UVA and UVB protection but also replenishes and brightens up uneven skin tone and texture, for a glowing, supple complexion.

How to Use: Apply evenly over face as a makeup base to prep skin before applying foundation or BB cream.

I absolutely love the packaging for this sunscreen. I think it is beautiful and sleek, and the colour is one of my favourites! This sunscreen was sent out in the Wine & Cheese box I believe. I am happy to have this and I will use it after I finish the sunscreens I already have.

Elizavecca Ampoule

Elizavecca Real White Vita-Sauce 30 50ml ($48)

With pure vitamin C consisting over 30% of the facial ampoule, this is a highly concentrated vitamin ampoule which provides instant moisture, whitening care, wrinkle-care, and skin protection all in one!

How to Use: Apply 2-3 drops of the ampoule and pat it in for full absorbance. Make sure to shake the bottle well before application so that the vitamin capsules in the ampoule can be evenly applied over your skin.

I am a little confused about why this is in this box when it was in the Black Friday #1 box as well. Why they put duplicate products in boxes of the same collection I have no idea. However, that being said, I am using the first one that I got and do not have any other ampoules waiting to be used so I will use this one next. At least its not a duplicate of a product that I don’t like.

Cotterang Cream

Cotterang Aesthetic Reparative-K Cream 20g ($43)

A facial cream for soothing and nourishing stimulated skin, the Aesthetic Reparative-K Cream is packed with high concentrates of centella asiatica extracts, jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, and gold extracts. Its soothing formula works to hydrate and calm reddened, sensitive skin by creating a protective layer on top and also by instigating skin regeneration.

Once again, this cream was in the Black Friday #1 box with the Elizavecca product. I haven’t used my first one yet because I have so many creams waiting to go. I’m not sure yet if I will keep this or pass it along yet. I kind of wish I hadn’t received a duplicate of this product but maybe once I start using it, I will really love it.

Tonymoly Red Wine Masks

Tonymoly I’m REAL Red Wine Mask Sheet Pore Care 21ml x 2ea ($2)

A micro-emulsion type essential mask enriched with red wine complex. It’s fast-absorbing, effectively softens uneven skin texture, and maintains a healthy moisture/oil balance. Plus, it’s free of paraben, talc, benzophenon, tri-ethanolamide, and tar colouring.

How to Use: Spread the mask sheet evenly over clean face. Rest for 15-20 minutes. Remove and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbance.

I am really excited to get these! I have been wanting to try the Tonymoly masks for awhile but haven’t found them online anywhere that I didn’t have to pay a small fortune for shipping. I absolutely love sheet masks and love getting them in my boxes so this is one of the better products of this box for me!

Mangchee Lifting Mask

Ladykin Mangchee Lifting Mask 50ml ($43)

This Mangchee Lifting Cream moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Mango, cheese, and shea butter extracts boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result. It leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion.

How to Use: Apply the Lifting Mask all over the face. Use before bed. Do not rinse.

This is another product that I am excited to have! I haven’t gotten any sleeping pack type masks yet from my Memeboxes even though they seem so popular! I just received a Mangchee hand cream in another Black Friday box and it seems quite nice so I am excited to try this. I am curious to see how I will feel having the sleeping pack on my face, and hopefully it won’t be uncomfortable if it absorbs slowly.

Overally, I am still quite happy with this box despite the duplicates. I am happy to have the Elizavecca duplicate, and am alright with the Cotterang duplicate. I am very happy to have everything else that came in the box so I think it is a success! With coupon codes and Meme points, I ended up paying $15 for this box including shipping. This means I only paid about $8 for the box itself. The total retail value (according to Memebox) is a whopping $172 which is crazy! Also, at this point, other than the Innisfree Peeling Gel, I have everything that came in the Wine & Cheese box so they must have had a lot of people cancel their orders of that one.

Memebox #65 Apple Mojito

Apple Mojito

There’s no alcohol necessary to turn you into an addict, because this box is packed with a healthy crush of high-energy refreshing fruit mixes that levels up your beauty! Bursting with skin and body healthy mixes, this box contains all things all of the best beauty wonders to pamper your skin and body! You’ll surely be asking for the second rounds!

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.

Sometimes if boxes are due to ship at the same time, they will have bundles so that there is only one shipping cost.

I wasn’t sure whether or not I wanted to get this box. It really intrigued me and it wasn’t too expensive but the description was a little vague so I wasn’t sure what I would get. When I saw that there were only 2 boxes left, I realized I had to have it so here we are.

IMG_20141217_135235

IMG_20141217_135358IMG_20141217_135414

Let’s see what came in this box!

IMG_20141217_135253

Enesti Apply & Honey Shea Butter Hand Cream 50g ($5)

The heavily nourishing honey and vitamin-rich apple formula of this hand cream works to moisturize, purify, and firm up dry hands.

I have so many hand creams on the go at the moment so I probably shouldn’t have opened this yet. I decided that I needed to smell it though so I threw caution to the wind. I am glad that I did open it because it smells lovely! I am more impressed with the scent than I thought I would be so thats awesome. I do have a couple of creams I want to use up before this one so it is going into my hand cream box.

IMG_20141217_144903

A.H.C. Climax Foam Cleanser 180 ml ($29)

Formulated from soda water, coconut, and glucose components, this A.H.C Climax Foam Cleanser is a mild facial cleanser with abundant foams and rich in various nutrients. It’s creamy in texture and leaves skin moist and supple after use. Recommended for all skin types – oily, dry, combination, and sensitive. 

I have a cleanser and a half to use up before this one so it is still sealed. I am assuming that the soda water ingredient is the reason this was included in the Apple Mojito box which I guess makes sense. I think I was hoping for a little more towards the apple or lime end of things but I’m sure this will be a nice cleanser!

                IMG_20141217_135523IMG_20141217_135539

Holika Holika Dessert Time Lip Balm 06 Lemon Cupcake 6g ($6)

Moisturize and refresh chapped lips with lemon-scented Dessert Time Lip Balm in 06 Lemon Cupcake. The tinted formula also adds a natural pink flush and suppleness.

I remember seeing these lip balms in a previous box, although I can’t remember which one. Although the outside is cute, I am way more impressed with the actual balm. The smell of this is so nice and lemony! It also feels like it will be pretty moisturizing. I thought mojitos were made with lime, not lemon, but that is okay because I love lemon too!

IMG_20141217_135658

Purederm Skin Turn-over Lemon Peeling Toner 170 ml ($24)

This Lemon Peeling Toner is enriched with AHA, lemon extracts, witch hazel water, and portulaca extracts. When used on a cotton pad to tone skin after cleansing, it helps soothe and de-stress stimulated skin and facilitates skin turn-over by removing dead skin cells and smoothening out uneven skin texture. 

I have now made an Excel spreadsheet just to keep track of which products I need to use when based on expiry dates (sad that I need to, I know). Even though I do have other toners waiting in the wings, this one will be next. I am hoping that this smells lemony but I’m not sure whether or not it will. Either way, I am glad to have it. It seems I will never need to buy things like toners and cleaners again at the rate I’m going.

IMG_20141217_135805IMG_20141217_135952

Tonymoly Red Apple Tox Honey Cream 80 ml ($12)

Made from vitamin-rich apple and deeply nourishing honey, Tonymoly’s famous red Appletox Honey Cream is a daily facial cream with a unique honey-like texture. The bouncy, hydrating gel cream stretches when patted on, giving the skin a massage effect as well as a silky finish.

For anyone who is really into Memebox, I’m sure you either already own, or have at least heard about the Apple Tox Cream. This was one of the items from the Cutie Pie Marzia 2 boxes that never seem to sell out and that few people want anymore. I never bought that box but from my understanding, this was one of the products people actually liked from it. As people have said, the smell of this cream is very nice and reminiscent of apples. A lot of people said that their creams leaked but mine had only a drop or two outside of the seal so that’s okay. It does feel sticky but thins out and absorbs quickly once it is on the skin. I am definitely happy to have this but won’t be using it for a little while still.

I am happy with this box! Since I wasn’t sure what to expect, I didn’t set the bar all that high. However, even if I had I think I would be impressed. I am building a collection of skincare products but since I am still newish to Memebox, I am okay with getting these kinds of things. This box was $26 with shipping I believe and the retail value of the box is $76. Even though the retail value isn’t all that high, everything in the box will be used and that is of more value to me than just a high monetary value.

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!

                      admin-ajax (4)admin-ajax (5) admin-ajax (6)

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.

       admin-ajax (7)admin-ajax (8)

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.

       admin-ajax (9)admin-ajax (10)

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.

       admin-ajax (12)admin-ajax (13)

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.

admin-ajax (14)

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.

           admin-ajax (16)admin-ajax (15)

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.

Stay tuned for my Thanksgiving #2 Box and if you would like to make any purchases from Memebox, feel free to use my affiliate link or codes below to do so! These codes are valid until November 29 2014.
