I wasn’t particularly thrilled about Memebox #15 but probably this one revived my love for the regular memeboxes. Well, sort of. Firstly, this is skincare heavy. I have a tendency to love skincare-oriented Memeboxes more than Makeup ones, so I’m already biased with this~
There are 6 products altogether in this box, the RiRe products being counted as 1. 4 are skincare, 1 bodycare and another a hair product sample.
Elizavecca Shrink Lift R Pro 120ml, $28
First up, lets talk about Elizavecca- everyone’s favorite piggy brand at the moment. This is the second “slimming” product I have received from Memebox (first being the Annagaspi body patch from H&B1).
I was excited, because we needed something else other than more cream moisturizers and foam cleansers. Elizavecca gave us some fabulous products in the past: collagen packs and bubbling masks to name a few.
This product promises to soothe swollen calves and increase skin elasticity and firmness. It contains mandarin, coffee, sage oil, peppermint, winter green and mate leaf extracts. This smells of really strong menthol, so those who don’t like menthol might hate this product.
I like mint, but this is a different kind of heat. I love the idea of a cooling massage at the end of a stressful day, but I might need someone to do that for me lol. Will definitely keep this for summer months, because I can’t bear to walk around smelling like I have been to a Chinese massage parlour/ a walking pot of Tiger balm..
Unni Recipe Vitamin Recharger Mist 130ml, $24
There is no mistake that this is a Vitamin mist. It smells of oranges! I feel like I have spritzed on non-sweetened OJ on my face. It’s refreshing, really.
Taken from the info card;
‘This mist is enriched with 6 different vitamins and hyaluronic acid. Plus, it’s completely free of paraben, benzophenon, mineral oil, aocohol, tri-ethanol, and artificial coloring, thus making it gentle enough to be used by all skin types.’
I can’t find any fault in this mist so far. I would try it for abit and add the Blithe Yellow Citrus energy to it when I get my hands on some.
Hair+ Velvet Nutri-Injection 12ml, $5
Well, Memebox did claim that this is full-size… I don’t know what to think of another hair product. I love shampoos, but I can’t be bothered about treatments or masks and such. I will not comment further until I have tried this myself.
Fortunately though, this product does not require rinsing and claims to give us an experience of a hair clinic program.
Delskin Centella 90 Power Ampoule, 30ml, $14
I love Centella Asiatica as much as Tea Tree oils. Both are excellent ingredients for oil and trouble control. I am still using the (Skin 1004) Centella essence from an early Oil & Trouble Memebox and I love how it quietly does its job. No, it wasn’t miraculous or anything, but my skin just stays the way it is without purging etc.
This one is roughly the same, except that I would use this as the second step of my makeup routine and not as the first. A few drops is all we need and we can top with a moisturizer afterwards.
RiRe Style Black Head Brush Cleanser & Skinny Black Head Closing Serum 40ml & 20ml, $18.
I have not decided how I feel about these. I have a line of cleansers sitting in my counter and bathroom, so I will only try it in a few months’ time and report back here. This is an interesting product though, as it is packed with black food complex: black rice, black beans and black sesame.
I wondered if this could have landed in the blackout Memebox instead, but I’m glad they added this product instead of a lipstick or another hair treatment pack.
Ingredients of the cleanser;
The cleanser came with a brush designed to clean the pores off dirt, impurities, blackheads etcetera. It does sound all very exciting and reminds me of the L’oreal/Garnier exfoliating cleanser I have bought sometime ago. I wonder if this will be the next HG thing.
Ingredients of the Serum;
Very nice job including the closing serum with the cleanser!
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream 45ml, $24
This is actually my third tube and I don’t think it retails for $24, no. It is under $10 and ubiquitous. The cream is affordable and fantastic, so I didn’t mind a third one, really. You can read how I use mine here.
Overall, this box is not bad at all. Value wise it is definitely not as high as some of the other Memeboxes we have received. It is short of $100 and costed me $23 to buy, so I ain’t complaining. I would still try my luck at the global boxes because it is afterall their signature box, and I don’t think they will screw it up in a long run. #17 and #18 are set to come my way, and I hope to see more potential HG things in them!
