SD Hair Steam Hair Pack (7 Days Premium Edition)- review

image

Remember that Hair & Body Memebox the memepeople sent me weeks back (unboxed here)?
I finally found the perfect time to try out the SD Hair Steam 7 Day Hair Pack.

 

image

The SD Hair Steam 7 Day Hair Pack was revealed on Memebox’s FB fanpage and got a pretty good buzz. Every memefan was curious on how this would work.

Well, it was not as dramatic as the picture shows. There were no steam coming out of my scalp, thank goodness.

photo of the result after usage. (too dramatic imho)

My hair was not super dry or anything, but because of the shift of seasons, it was a little frizzy.
I was excited to see if the results were as dramatic!

I got this description of the product on the net;

The mask is formed with concentrated essence and it is self heating upon application onto hair.  It will help your hair to be soft, smooth and healthy.   The pack will also repair the hair damaged due to frequent coloring, hair perm or stress.  Just one time use will improve the condition of your hair but we highly recommend apply 4 times a month for the best result.

The instructions were in Korean so I had to refer to the infocard included in the Memebox for more details.

So in case that isn’t detailed enough, I found some pictures to aid the process;

I was surprised at how oversized the cap was until I realized it was just enough to cover my long locks.

And it is purple in print! (found a lavender cloth to match). Coincidently my current hair color is deep purple from my previous mahagony.

I left it for about 15 minutes to maximize it’s effect, and massaged my scalp from time to time while I watched more beauty videos on youtube.

After rinsing with warm water, I towel dry as usual and let it dry naturally.

My hair felt soft and it does not make my scalp oily. I love that it doesn’t react like most conditioners that flatten my hair with over-moisturizing ingredients. My hair remained fab and washed for the next day.

I think I might love to try another similar product. My next would be the Ryo Hair Loss from Memebox #12. I can’t wait!

Memebox Hair & Body retails for $23 + $6.99 (shipping). The #1 and #2 are currently sold out but you may purchase the Hair & Body #3 box – it has been hashtag-ged with #Jjimjibang (sauna) so I would recommend this to all spa lovers and those who wants to try out exfoliating products!

You may also use the following promo codes;

 588KKYR9G4 – $5 discount on any memebox order. (Valid date : July 1st ~ end of July, limit to one time per customer.)
EJPWG5 – $5 off any pruchase. Valid until the end of July.

Happy memeshopping!

Memebox Hair and Body 1- unboxing & comprehensive review!

Memepeople contacted me the other day while I was holidaying in Croatia and asked me if I would like to receive a memebox from them and my answer was Yes, of course! I selected the Memebox Hair & Body Box of the choices.

I was elated to finally be rewarded for my efforts.  

I have recently joined as their affiliate and was lucky enough to enable a huge group of my friends from the derm clinic before the holidays (they are from all over Europe) and my neighbors.

♥♥♥♥♥

You have probably read about Memebox from other blogs, but let me tell you why memebox is so special;

1. They are not like normal subscription box. Memebox have it’s regular box and many other special boxes including themed ones (Memebox special edition), ones with only full-sized items (Superbox) and even items from previous boxes that you have missed (Luckybox).

2. It is currently the only box originally from Korea that ships globally.

3. The value of memeboxes are always double or more than the price you pay! There was even a box that values over $150 for only $23!!

4. You get a wide selection of products in your boxes. It is always a surprise unboxing one. One example is the recent Memebox #11 which includes a body lotion, a mask, a CC cream, nail polish set and a liptint!

5. You can get memeboxes for super cheap (read the end of this post)! They always have sales every now and then, and promo codes to top of with. I once got a box for only $0.99 with my memepoints. That is insane!!!

Okay, on to the unboxing!

Memebox Hair & Body #1

 

image

Memebox was generous enough to ship my box via DHL! By the time I receive my tracking number, the box was already on my desk.

Look at the amount of products!!! The box itself is really heavy.

image

The spread:

I will talk about each product in detail! Since I have gotten the box before, I have used almost all the products. I even brought some on my trip.

The information card is always super useful to have especially when some products are in Korean, so you need not worry.

1. Rosapacific 19 Real Neck Sheet 12g
Full sized: 12g ($3.50)

image

I have already reviewed this product and you can read it here. I will gift this to my bestie, and hopefully she will love it!

2. 1004 Laboratory Kiss the Perfume Brilliant Hair Treatment 300g
Full sized: 300g ($49)

image

 

 

This is my favourite of all the things in the Memebox Hair & Body! It has been included in one of the memebox loves alongside the Enprani Bounce Cheese Cream and TCFS Mist. If you would do a quick search, many memeaddicts wants this as a swap item. I do agree!

image

Look at the amount of details on this product! Even the inside of the box has description of all the ingredients used and the research done into producing it.

image

Ain’t it the loveliest conditioner you have seen?

Not only does it smell fantastic, this conditioner also makes my hair feel softer. I have pumped it into a miniature bottle and brought it with me on my travels and sitting next to someone, they thought I used a nice subtle floral perfume.

 

s 3. Annagaspi Brilliant Body Design Patch (2 pouch x 2= 4 pcs)
Full sized: 4 pcs ($17)

image

 

I tried this on my thighs the other day. It claims to reshape and firm swollen legs and feet, although on the package it does say you can use it on other parts of the body such as your lower back, arms or tummy. The patch itself is enough to cover the back of my thigh. It feels tingly upon minutes of application, and other than that it does not hinder my sleep. A tip is to make sure you clean the area you are applying to, and make sure it is dry!

image

So I slept in with the patch since you need 8 hours for optimum efficacy. 

I woke up and took the patch off. It does not dramatically reduce my thigh fat, (lets be honest, what product does that overnight) but my skin does feel clammy in a pleasant way and firm. I think I need to use this more to see an effect.

This is cool, because I wouldn’t normally buy a slimming patch for myself!

4. SD Hair Steam Pack 30g
Full sized: 30g ($21)

image

This was the product they spoiler-ed before the box was released! I think those who love the concept of having their own hair spa at home would enjoy this product. In the description, it says the steam pack contains argan oil, royal jelly and black food. Hello luxurious nourishment!

It is the only one I couldn’t bear to use yet. I will, soon!

 

5. Kocostar Nail Therapy 4g x 3pcs
Full sized: 3pcs ($15) 

image   image

Yet  another full sized product! I have tried this the other day and I think it does work a little better than just applying cuticle oil or hand cream. The product itself is 5 little white masks soaked in a liquid that you can slip onto each of your fingers.

It is amusing to wear it and attempt activities around the hostel. My travelmates had a good laugh because I was looking like a proper bimbo. Definitely good thing to put on when you want a hunk to spoon-feed you food hehe.

 

More cute snippets of the info cards;

The Kocostar food therapy is going to be included in the Memebox Hair & Body #2! If you missed out on that, keep a watchful eye for Hair & Body #3!

6. Zivon Plu Scrub Oriental Jin 50g
Full sized: 200g ($25)— 50g ($6.25)

image

image

It is hand-sized, so that makes it travel friendly! No more dirt and gunk for beach day outs~

I was in this forum where memeaddicts gather, and everyone who got the box seem to love this scrub! It is super delicate unlike some sugar scrubs I have tried. What is interesting is that it contains red ginseng on top of other moisturizing ingredients like olive oil, macadamia oil, argan oil and other natural oils.

7. EVAS RoseMine perfume Touch 13g
Full sized: 13g ($17g)

image

Ain’t that the cutest packaging for a perfume~
It reminds me of Cath Kidson.

I got the Gleaming Bijou this time! My previous tube was Blessing Blossoms. I love both equally as I can’t decide which is better..

imageIt might not be strong enough to be considered as a perfume, imho, but I realized that you can mix this with any of your clinic-smelling creams (yeah, those with psoriasis would know) and viola, floral scented lotion!

 

 

 

 

 

 

image image

The consistency is gel-like with shimmery bits. After spreading, the skin feels slightly cool and shimmery (not a disco dust sparkle, but just a little).

 

($17g 8. Golden Glove Exfoliating Gloves
Full sized: 1 pair ($16)

imageimage

Okay, who would pay $16 for exfoliating gloves…. but hey, since it comes free in this box I gave it a try. Let me indulge would with some Korean culture at this point. The younger members of a family would visit the bath house (called Jjimjibang in Korean) and give their elders a good back scrub. Even mothers would do this for their child.

This glove does what it says. It gets rid of the dead cells pretty effectively! Just apply body gel/ shower cream and scrub away. Be gentle, though, and go in small circles rather than roughly because you don’t want to get red streaks afterwards!

I think this is a great product to bring whenever I am visiting the sauna. I don’t have to worry about dropping my loofah on the floor (you know the floors are infested with bacteria and such). I just have to wear these and walk around scrubbing!

 

Oh Memebox.

 

Overall this box is valued up to $144.75. But lets be realistic and slash that down to half. It’s still $70++ and that is triple the original price of the box itself- $23! You might need to add $6.99 to that for shipping, but hey, with all the discount codes and memepoints, you can get all this for nothing!

You can now get $3 off any memebox with this code (good until the end of June): 63D58FH1ZRLS

If you register now, you get 10 memepoints ($10) and shoot an email over to hi@memebox.com saying that Veritazy.wordpress referred you. They will add up to $5 worth of points into your account. You may also purchase boxes that has $3 affiliate discount from my links here. 

 Lets break that down shall we;- if you are picking up say, the Memebox Skincare box;

Cost of box: $29.00
Shipping: $6.99
New membership: -$10.00
Referral points: -$5.00
Buy via my link: -$3.00
Use the code (63D58FH1ZRLS ): -$.300
Final price: $14.99

That is insane for a box that would probably be worth $80-100 or more. I think Memebox is way ahead of its competition. Keep up the good job, memepeople!

And you, Happy memeshopping!

 

 

Review: Rosapacific 19 Real Neck PT

 

I tried the neck mask from memebox hair & body the other night (thank god I brought this with me on my trip!). The mask itself is just a patch and it adheres really well to the skin. It does feel a little…suffocating because you are conscious about something clinging onto your neck all the time. You are supposed to leave it for 19 minutes, hence the name.

The mask smells like ginseng or some medicinal herbs, reminiscent of Sulwhasoo’s first care serum. The liquid itself feels sticky like a gel. I did feel that my skin is a little softer after using it, but whitening wise….not so much. Or maybe that’s because I am pale enough. I think you have to use more of it to see the anti-wrinkle effect.

I think it is quite a hassle to use neck masks, though the idea is kinda interesting. I would love to see the liquid made into a mist/ gel for neck care. I am not affiliated with this seller nor the product’s company, but if you want to read more about the product, you can check out this link.
