Ladies of the beautyverse~ I’ll be unboxing my Memebox Global #15, which arrived within 2 weeks via RM post. I bought this box for $23 + $6.99 for standard shipping. I am sure I have used some points and codes for this and it was wayyy cheaper than $29.99. Look out for the codes and other perks at the end of this post!
This box contains 6 full-sized item + 1 deluxe sized BC cream. Lets dive into it~
I shall kick off with my favorite item in this box;
miss.age Snail Anti-Wrinkle Serum (50ml, $53).
Description on the Memeshop:
Enriched with over 5500mg of snail extracts, this anti-wrinkle serum helps nourish the skin from deep within, delivering nutrition and tightening care at the same time. This serum will be ideal for dry, saggy skins.
HOW TO USE
Apply the serum over your forehead, cheeks, and chin and gently spread it over your face. Use it every morning and night.
With their tagline “Forget now, feel your glory days” we know that this brand’s target audience is someone above the age of 30. However, anti-aging care starts earlier at a tender age of 25! With the smog and stresses of daily life, it is best to take care of our skin by providing all the nutrients it need.
My thoughts: When you unscrew the cap and use the dropper, the product dispenses out as a mucinous serum. It is akin mixing the Mizon snail repair cream gel + any ampoule for example the Centella Asiatica ampoule. There is slight to no smell at all. Once spread, the serum turns into a watery consistency and absorbs very well to leave a slight sheen on the face. I think this is a pretty great night care serum~
Do you know this range came from one of the Memefav brands, Re:cipe! You can check out the site by clicking on the logo below;
You can also purchase this product from the Memeshop for only $29 (limited until sales end).
There were mixed reviews about having two hair products in the box. I personally didn’t like getting too much, because I have my specific hair care. However, I might be willing to try this out;
Mise en Scene Perfect Serum (70ml, $9)
Is this liquid gold? I might have to test it out once I run out of my current fav, the L’oreal Mythic hair oil!
This product contains 7 different natural oils; argan, camellia, olive, jojoba, coconut, apricot, marula.
In case you read Hangul.
I like that it is light and does not feel oily on the scalp. It smells like a saloon product lol.
This one looks absolutely golden;
Mise en Scene Perfect Repair Treatment Pack (180ml, $16)
It feels like the Mise en Scene came in pair and this is for a 2-step hair care. It was suggested that we should use this twice a week for optimal results.
I can replace this with my conditioner after it is gone. The conditioners I have previously received from Memebox are quite good; the Ryo anti-hair loss, Kiss the Perfume Cherry Blossom hair conditioner and some. Honestly, I am optimistic about this one and will give it a try myself!
You never knew cleansing can be stress relieving until you encounter the Ariul Stress Relieving Purefull Cleansing Foam (75ml, $8).
I don’t know when I will use this as I still have tons of unused cleansers. Maybe I have a problem lol! I know foam cleansers are fantastic to control oily skin, so this will probably go to a friend who needs one as I have normal-dry skin especially in Autumn!
We have seen the brand Ariul previously from the Memebox Earth & Sea (facial mist), and I quite like the funky design of the packagings. Everything feels youthful and fun. Check out the masks on Memeshop!
TonyMoly BCDation All Master SPF30PA+++ (20g, full-sized 50g for $24) claims to be the breakthrough product with all BB, CC and foundation formulation. It is a makeup base with added benefits – high coverage, natural-looking, moisturizing, whitening, anti-wrinkle care and radiance.
I will be honest to say I am difficult to please when it comes to makeup bases. I have tried hundreds of BB, CC and foundations, and will adhere to my favorite one for a long time. The first BCDation made me skeptical to give this a try as it was streaky and my skin became too shiny in just several hours. I might, when I will run out of the 947572932 BB creams I am trying at the moment. 20g makes it a good travel product though!
2 final ones are more makeup products;
Tosowoong Makeon Lip Manicure 30 Seconds (5.5g, $12) in 03 Pure Peach
Shara Shara I Wanna Pencil Gel Liner ($8) in BKo1 Deep Black
These are some of the more usable decorative makeup I have received. I love a good lip gloss/tint and liner for everyday use. The lip manicure looks natural but is a little sticky. It is all gone when I eat, leaving a slight color. I had to reapply.. The Shara Shara liner is pretty standard and does not beat my Japanese liners.
One of the reasons why I think the brand has potential is because their ambassador is L–LOL~ He is a rising star from the group Infinite and is appearing in various dramas lately; “Single Cunning Lady” and “She’s so Loveable” to name a few.
Good marketing strategy.
Well, the box is mainly makeup and haircare- two of the things I do not prefer to receive…but I can’t complain because the regular globals are always random and aims to provide us with a range of stuff to diversify our beauty inventory.
Value-wise, everything totaled up to a memevalue of about $118 but I would personally value it at $40. This is my least favorite box of all the globals I have received. I hope the next one (#16) will be more exciting.
Do check out the other available memeboxes here and use my promo codes. These are good till the end of October I suppose, and gives a discount of $5 off all orders (good for one use each).
