I have never been this excited. The Moisture Surge Memebox was released alongside with the Memepouch (which I will review later) and I thought to myself that I need to grab this box since it is always cold and dry in central Europe. I was glad I did.
I got this Memebox by using the $50 memepoints I won in the #howdoyoumemebox Instagram contest ages ago. Thats how I paid nothing for this value set of 2 boxes + shipping!! Lucky me~~ *tears of joy*
Right off the bet, 6 products, almost all are full-sized. ANDDDD one deluxe sample set by Chosungah! LOVE.
I will start off with my favorite;
The original raw deluxe kit ver 3.0 (3 x 30ml, $60).
Sorry memebox, but $60 is a fairytale price because I saw this on some other site for a fraction of that price.
I have always loved Chosungah for their beautifully designed packaging. I raved about this in another post about new, upcoming brands in Korea.
This kit contains 3 items;
1. Black Bubble- a black cleanser that helps expel impurities by creating fine bubbles. Take a dime size of this, spread it over the face and wait for 5 seconds before massaging and rinsing it off.
2. Chan Mool Patting Essence– a tangly, jelly-like essence that helps brighten, moisturize and tighten the skin. Sounds fab and a lot simpler than the Blithe one which is my current fav.
3. Water Block Black Jam- This claims to hydrate for up to 48 hours (whoa, sounds potent!) and you may use it as an overnight mask as well.
I think I will keep this and try all of it! I do wish to see more Chosungah in my memeboxes to come, and I was utterly jealous of the Koreans to get their cheek blush in an earlier box.
Be sure to check out their site! Oh, eye candies..but the shipping will obliterate you. Consider yourself warned.
The next product is the insobeau Hiaromax Vitamin Stick (10g, $29) and you have to agree with me that this is an interesting item. It is a balm type moisturizer for dry areas of the face!
I have given this a go and I quite like it. It smells strongly like…..repellent(?) but tolerable in the name of beauty lol. You may apply this before or after makeup. I put this on my desk and use it when I have to work on my computer all day. It’s savvy and convenient– just glide it over dry patches and viola. The stick is also cooling, so thats a plus!
The tube has about 2.5cm of product, and you can see that I have used up quite abit. Though I don’t think the vitamin stick does anything wow, it is handy for anyone who doesn’t like to walk all the way to get a moisturizer. It is portable and fits into any handbag. I can see myself using this on long-haul flights too!
I love mists and was stoked to see the Dermahouse Aloe Moisture Mist (120ml, $14) in this box.
I don’t have to do a spritz test photo because this is as standard as a mist can get. It moisturizes pretty well I’d say, and is great for sensitive skin too!
The mist smells subtly floral and dries out to leave a slight sheen. I love it, and I think I will use this to manufacture more of my own Blithe Misting water lol.
The Rosemoon Rich 53% Collagen smart balm (50ml, $47) is a no-nonsense product judging by its packaging. On the first whiff, it does smell alot like collagen– the smell of pig skin, if you know what I mean. It promises to hydrate, strengthen and protect the skin.
You can use this as the last stage of your routine skincare and leave it overnight for that super soft, moist skin. It does contain many plant extracts and honey, royal jelly, plus beeswax. I love the sound of this already!
This is fantastic for winter months. I would use this as my night moisturizer and see how it goes.
Wish Formula Premium Ample Mask ($14) is great against wrinkles and dryness.
Like any other masks, you would leave this on for 15-20 minutes and pat the remaining essence after for full absorbance.
I like that they included the ingredients in English. This product goes to my mum! I’ll report if she would look youthful after using this.
The last product in this pack is the imface Vio-Xellose Neck Patch (10ml, $5) and it is a neck mask with coconut jelly texture. It is also used to treat aging neckline and is free of harmful chemicals like paraben, benzophenone, sulfate and other artificial additives.
This one has to be left a little longer- 20-30mins. I don’t personally enjoy neck masks because they are too cold for my throat and it feels like I’m constantly wearing an uncomfortable collar…
Again, mum will be my
trashcan inheritor. I think neck masks, v-line sling thing and hair packs are an IT thing in Korea right now. I am too lazy to be bothered..and I would prefer using the previous collagen product instead of this. :X
6 different products all together, and they totaled up to a memevalue of $169 (wow seriously?). I personally would put a price tag of $80 on this box. I don’t mind this box, considering the variety it has. While it did not turn out to be a wow, it does deliver what it promises.
Do check out the other available memeboxes here and use my promo codes. These are good till the end of October ’14 I suppose, and gives a discount of $5 off all orders (good for one use each).
