Get moisturized with Memebox Moisture Surge ~

 

image

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*

 

image

 

Right off the bet, 6 products, almost all are full-sized. ANDDDD one deluxe sample set by Chosungah! LOVE.

Info-card;

image

♥♥♥♥♥

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.

image

I have always loved Chosungah for their beautifully designed packaging. I raved about this in another post about new, upcoming brands in Korea.

image

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.

image

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!

image

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!

image

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!

image

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.

image

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!

image

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.

image

Like any other masks, you would leave this on for 15-20 minutes and pat the remaining essence after for full absorbance.

image

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.

image

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…

image

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.

image

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).

Rave: Memebox Earth & Sea !

Hello pulchritudies~

I am writing to share a beautiful curation by Memebox. This time, it is chock full of goodness from Earth and Sea!
I got this Memebox Earth and Sea (now sold out, sadly) a month back and it finally got here. It was so heavy X_x

image

I love the colors too! Blue-white seems to be a pretty theme ♥

Items all laid out;

image

There are 6 products in total, and ALL OF THEM ARE FULL SIZE. Holy alpacas!
Here is the infocard to verify;

image

image

I was really looking forward to this box and it lived up to my expectations. I was sold when I read the details on the memesite;

When toxins, dirt and oil build up get under the skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, ultimately clogging up pores and making skin look dull.  So, we’re bringing you nature’s clean up crew to clear the way for cleaner and brighter skin.

Charcoal, volcanic ash and mud all work together to draw out dirt and excess oil to extract stubborn impurities from deep within pores! Mineral rich marine energy works as the step 2 treatment for refining pores and replenishing moisture to the skin.

Our Earth & Sea Cosmetics Box offers the best natural ingredients  to give you your best looking skin yet. 

How am I not sold by that?? I adore mudpacks and everything mineral-ish. Gimme!

♦♦♦

So of course the first thing that caught my eye was the
Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack (100g, $36).

image

This is like any regular mudpack where we slap on and leave it to harden for several minutes and then wash off.

image

I have personally tested this already and boy, it took long before the mask actually dries! 15-20 mins is adequate time only if you put on just enough for your face. It feels slightly tingly at first, and then you don’t really notice it on, until you yawn or something. It smells strangely of…lemons (?) and the texture is much smoother than other mudpacks I have tried.

This is definitely a good product to try. Not great, but good.

♦♦♦

My next fav is this Ariul Spa Water- 24 hours Moisturizing Refreshing Mist (100ml, $18).
If you don’t already know, I love getting mists from Memeboxes. I will most definitely use them all!

image

It works like any other mists and is best used as the first step of your skincare. But you know what, I might be breaking the beauty law– I use my mists to set my makeup! Instead of first, I use it last after powder-ing because it makes my makeup look more natural and less chappy. Anyone else do this?

image

I don’t know what Belgium rich minerals are but this would be fantastic for my everyday routine.

♦♦♦

Another product that caught all the memeaddicts’ attention is this
Elizavecca Elastic Pore Mask Cleansing Foam (120ml, $29).

image

Just look at the adorable packaging and tell me it doesn’t contain… SPIDER EXTRACTS?!
Lol, this could have qualified into the OMG memebox.

image

The ingredients are funky, yes, but I have heard awesome things about this charcoal-pig collagen-spider extract cleanser. I can’t wait to finish up my current cleansers (yup, a plural) and give this a go!

♦♦♦

With all that impurities gone, it is time to soothe with;
Tosowoong’s Super Aqua Cooling Gel (80g, $34).

I find gels wonderful because they are not too heavy/light for my skin. This one is ideal for overheated and irritated skin, so it will be my emergency staple! Every girl needs a cooling gel in case of allergies/inflammation.

image

Just look at the color. It reminds me of the Adriatic sea already~~ ♥

image

It also does not have a strong smell. I might test this out with my BB cream and see if that will make it a BB/multi-balm sort of product! Exciting~

♦♦♦

A mask of charcoal;
Shara Shara’s Black Charcoal Mask Purifying (23g, $2)

image

I am not a sheet mask fan, but thankfully it is only one. I don’t mind giving this a go when it will be the ‘time of the month’. I think you ladies know what I am talking about. We need our skin to be cleared off its impurities, dirt and sebum. Ek!

♦♦♦

Lastly we have the only makeup product (thank goodness!);
Dewytree Mineral Healthy Sun Cut Loose Powder (10g, $34).
There must be a small mistake on the infocard, because on the product it actually states SPF 27PA++ instead of 36.

image image

Nevermind that, this powder is brilliant as it comes with a mirror on top. It is pretty petite, yes, and uses an air pocket puff that does not clog up pores!

image image

Ingredients and puff

Its fantastic for setting the makeup or fixing it after oil forms if we are out all day.

♦♦♦

I have not heard of any dissatisfaction on this box so far!
It is definitely a Memebox favourite and everyone will be snagging the restock for sure.

image

The whole box totalled up to $150++ according to memebox’s values, but I would price this at more than $80 in worth!
I have gotten this memebox for only $29 (+ $6.99 shipping), but with codes and memepoints, it was much less. What a steal!~ ( ÕwÕ )v

You can check out the other available memeboxes here and use my promo codes. These are good till the end of Sept I suppose, and gives a discount of $5 off all orders (good for one use each).

Memebox Scentbox #3 Grapefruit – review

I am going to review my favorite Scentbox out of the 3 I have bought. I got this bundle for only $30 on memebox ! It was such an awesome deal because 1 box costs $15 but the bundle (2+1) is only $30. The 3 boxes contained 12 items altogether so if we do the math, one item is only $2.50! Gosh, memebox I need more scentboxes.

 
20140630_091905165_iOS

 

Lets take a look at the products curated for this box! I was super excited to sample them because I love the scent of grapefruit. The box itself is quite heavy, thanks to the 270ml soothing gel and 150ml perfume mist.

Info card

The Sun Smile Hydro Gel Choosy Fruit (3ml x 2 pcs, $2 each) was included in the previous memebox before, but we won’t complain as this box has other brilliant items. It is enriched with collagen, vit E, jojoba oil and restores moisture to your chapped lips!

It is really a novelty item because lip masks are not easy to find here in Europe. I like that they included two, so I can try this out with my bestie sometime.

The second item is a refreshing wipe: Happy Fam Deo Fresh Grapefruit. It contains 20 sheets and costs only $2. I suppose the brand Happy Fam is short for Happy Family(?).

20140701_111912851_iOS 20140701_111921987_iOS

Happy Fam Deo Fresh Grapefruit

It does smell citrusy, but only slightly. I got the other version from the baby powder box, and I think I liked that better. This will make an awesome addition to by travel purse or gym bag.

Next is one of my favorite! The Kael28 Sun Killing Grapefruit Gel is 270ml and retails at $30 (which already pays for the bundle if this price is right).

20140701_111736684_iOS

The Kael28 Sun Killing Grapefruit Gel

It is cooling like an aloe vera gel and would work as a toner, emulsion, essence, cream and sleeping pack– so it says. A bottle is packed with 16,000mg of real grapefruit extract.

20140701_111744053_iOS

Probably ‘killing’ the sun isn’t a good idea. lol

20140701_111754326_iOS

It also contains other flower and herbs.

Sounds great for after a day out under the sun!

The last and my precious; the Eva Mimi Lauryne’s Dress Perfume Mist de Grapefuit. It is only $18 but it smells like a million bucks. This mist is so light, it smells floral and citrusy at the same time without being overpowering.

They claim that you can use this on various places;

Eva Mimi Lauryne’s Dress Perfume Mist de Grapefuit

I adore this mist together with the one in the babypowder box. These are exactly what I expect to see in the scentboxes!

All 4 items total up to $52. I will use everything and I think the next time a scentbox comes out, it will be flying off the shelves.
