Princess Mail! It’s the Memebox Snow White edition~

image  This box arrived just in time for the first snow here in Central EU. I have always wanted this box for the longest time. I want it not only for the Chosungah Red Essence (yeah, I’m a sucker for their designs) but also the awesome sounding scrub and retarded bunny item! Carry on reading and you’ll see what I mean~ 😉

The Memebox Princess #1 Edition Snow White is one of the Princess series released back in September and shipped early October. Unfortunately this box is already sold out but you can find available boxes here or hope for a restock!

I was all like  (✿◠‿◠) when I went through the box. These are some really useful products and I would say I was surprised at how well-curated this box was! I half-expected some cheap rep lipstick or dark hair dye because Memebox might have thought of giving us (to quote the evil queen): “skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony.”

.

Memebox’s description was true to the box; Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who’s the fairest of them all? You, with the Snow White Box, of course! The cooler months spell for the perfect time to brighten up skin, even out uneven complexions, and target pesky dark spots! Whatever shade of the rainbow your skin color is, optimize your skin’s radiance and clarity for luminous, glowing skin. Now that summer is coming to its end, lay off the bakin’ and pull out our ultra-brightening and super potent Snow White Box! Discover Princess Snow White’s ultimate secret to beautifully bright skin that made her legendary! 

Lets go through the contents! ❤

First up is the really cool red bottle that caught my eye!
Chosungah Original Raw First Essence (Red Essence, 110ml, $26). 
Chosungah is one of the brands I introduced few months back and I have been eyeing their products because of how pretty they look! Oddly, this product seem to lack information as it is probably discontinued. However, the packaging makes it worth having!
.

It is a flat flask-shaped bottle with a dropper dispenser! Say whaa~
The essence is actually a watery gel-like moisturizer and it smells very much like the Original Raw Black Bubble I received in the previous Moisture Surge Memebox. I was intrigued by the description on the card:  “….enriched with various vitamin nutrients and dragon’s blood extracts from the dragon tree and work to instantly rejuvenate and brighten up the damaged or sagging skin. ” 
.
Like he-yo..I’m the dragonborn worthy of dragon blood skincare. Female Skyrim fans rejoice. 😀

The instructions says to wet a cotton pad with 2~3 drops of First Essence and gently pat it all over your face. I do feel very refreshed after using this. The essence itself is clear and spreads easily. I’m almost certain it also contains aloe as it is super cooling— perfect for sunburnt skin imho!

This Ipsenature 5 Seeds Apple Water Brightening Scrub (80ml, $26) smells like anything but apples. It is a strong herbal sort of scent that took me by surprise completely. I love scrubs, so I don’t mind the ‘medicinal’ smell of this at all.
.
 image
.
Texture wise, this is very pasty and contains bits of what seems to be seeds to me.  Among the listed ingredients are apple water and apricot, raspberry, walnut, rice, and corn seed powders. The scrub is very gentle and promises to ‘gently peel away all dead skin cells and skin impurities and deliver skin replenishing and brightening effects’.

I definitely like this better than the Tony Moly morning coffee scrub or a gentle facial brush when my skin acts up. It is great for getting instant results but make sure you don’t scrub too hard and hurt your skin instead! A gentle rub in rounds and massaging your face thoroughly and then rinsing with warm water will give you a brightened, fresh complexion. 😉

Yeah the art on this one is fascinating. A bunny with a human face caricature. Daltokki Whitening Essence (100ml, $35) is a product meant to be mixed into skincare or makeup as an add-on for whitening benefits.
image
.
Instructions: Mix in a drop of the Whitening Essence with a cream, a sunblock, or a BB cream for the effect you desire. Suitable for both facial and body application.
 .
I know this is for mixing, but what if it is used as it is?
image
 .
A small dollop on my hand…

 .
And blend.
Whoa.
You can really see a significant whitening effect. I was surprised as I blend it further and it just creates a bright complexion on my skin without leaving a whitish cast! This product is fab to blur out hyperpigmentation. Tip: You can apply a little of the essence on top of a well-moisturized lip to create a gradient lip look (guide here).
 .
I also found other uses for this product;
1. Overnight whitening treatment for knees, elbows and ankles.
2. To mix into a bb cream/ foundation that is a shade too dark.
3. Instant brightening of some areas on the face (contouring) if mixed with a multi balm and applied like a highlighter!

If the previous product is a little heavy for you, this one might interest you!
The Nella Fantasia Oneday Whitener (120ml, $29) is runnier than the previous product and is not sticky at all, so you can use this like a body lotion. In fact, the application is almost silky~ ❤
.
image
 
Description: It instantly moisturizes and brightens up dry, coarse, and darkened skin tone for a lasting glow all day long.
 
Honestly, this does not feel like one of those gimmicky Chinese instant whitening products (I’m wary of the adverse effects of those..). There isn’t a strong sunblock-y smell too, which is really nice.
.

If this would have spf, I think I would liken it to my Shiseido watery sunblock (those are fabulous btw). I would use this to treat my darkened ankles (thanks, summer). Verdict? I love this but I wished it has spf and a nice floral scent. Improve it, Nella Fantasia and I’ll throw my money at you!

The box is not complete if Snow White ends up all fair but with eye bags! This Morningtree Revitalizing Whitening Deep Spot (20ml, $34) is a special whitening and anti-wrinkle product with triple rollers. :O
.
image
.
And we all know how expensive anti-wrinkle/ ‘youth-activating’ beauty items are these days… I may not be in the age range to use this, but better start young because I’m always studying late nights and facing the computer for long hours!
.
image
.
You can see the triple rollers. Its pretty cooling on the skin and acts like a gentle massager for tired eyes. I would recommend using this roller (chilled in the refrigerator) on the face as well to reduce puffiness!
.
image
.
Just squeeze the tube to dispense the product, which is a gel-type essence will soothe, cool, brighten, and repair such dry and darkened spots. The card says this could be use for the pits and busts (lol!) but I don’t think I can handle that ticklish sensation. I’ll keep this for my face and neck, thanks. 😛

If rolling isn’t enough to improve those wrinkles and darkened bags, you need a backup plan! Luckily Memebox supplied us with the Faceflux Anti-Wrinkle Revitalizing Cream (30g, $38). It contains ceramide, hyaluronic acid, lemon verbena extracts, shea butter and portulaca extracts, perfect for moisturizing, anti-aging and brightening!
.

.
 
This product also does not have a particular scent to it. It is a rather smooth cream-gel. Once applied to the back of my hand, I can see instant moisturizing effect as the fine lines blur out.
image
This product might need a little longer to actually produce effect but I am sure it is great to boost the skin’s hydration instantly!

The 6 products in this box impresses me. I can’t pick out a HG yet, but the total value of this one is impeccable- $188!
image
I will use these over the course of the next months by slowly swapping out my skincare routine and adding in those whiteners to aid areas that needs a little de-pigmentation. I think Snow would be happy with these. I’m pretty pleased myself. 🙂
