Unboxing Memebox Special #42 OMG 3 (Just how OMG is an OMG box?)

Hi there, you are reading part 3 of 3 of the unboxing!

Memebox Special #42  OMG #3

OMG box series supposed to contain items that make people go “OMG” about the idea, the theme or the ingredients etc. So far, this series has not impressed many? What do you think?

On the Body Makgeolli Soap 85g, RRP $12

This is a rice wine fermented face cleansing soap, some said this OMG3 box stinks because of it!? It is not so bad to be honest, but again, I am not a big fan of soap. So this is not for me!

Cleomee Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist 100ml, RRP $59

This is a body mist, containing Donkey milk and oil. Donkey milk is hugely popular in Asia for its moisturising properties, but I yet to try a Donkey product!

This mist looks interesting enough, there are 3 layers of liquid, green, yellow and clear! You supposed to shake and mix the different liquids before spraying.

Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack

Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack

Migabee Bee Venom & Honey Cream 50ml, RRP $54

This is another high value item within the box. I love how most skincare products in memeboxes are 50ml.  This cream contains bee venom, honey, royal jelly and propolis. I am currently using my snail cream so if I decide to keep this, it will be queued again! (Too many memeboxes!! OMG! <—here I said it!!)

TonyMoly Delight Tint Crayon in 06 Neon Pink 2.8g, RRP $8

Lip crayon you said? well well well, apart from being shocking neon pink, this lip crayon can also glow in the dark! :p I think I have only been clubbing once in the last 5 years!! Showing my age here :)

Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack 150ml, RRP $19

 This is a mask containing tea tree oil and platinum powder, it aims to tighten pores, remove black heads and control oil production on the skin. This is quite a big tub for $19!

Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack @iamcherrylemon

Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack @iamcherrylemon

Total box retail value is $152 , this box costs $29 plus shipping. This accounts to be a huge value for money kinda box!

Overall Score for the OMG #3 Box: Not rated.

Here is the unboxing of My Cute Wishlist 3 and K-Style 3! Thanks for reading!

Is it OMG? Not really (Sorry, just not for me!!)

To summarise, I am liking the K-Style 3 a lot, is this enough to make it a great bundle? Not exactly, but at least I have had a taster of meme-series boxes!

(I have cancelled my OMG4 but have CW4 in the queue!)

Unboxing Memebox Special #43 K-Style 3 (Everything you need for a K-inspired look)

Hello! This is part 2 of 3 unboxing of the Memebox bundle :)

Memebox K-Style 3

Memebox K-Style 3

Special #43 K-Style 3

This is probably my favourite box of the 3 :) I am biased as I love to play with new makeup. In this box, we have 7 items mostly are useable, I said mostly as I believe the BB cream is in a rather light shade.

Secret Kiss Face Fit Strobe Cream 30ml, RRP $11

This is a moisturising makeup base, smooth out skin and gives radiance. It made from 6 kinds of gemstones powders and various floral extracts. It aims to hydrate, brighten dull skin, helps with sallowness and redness.

I have wanted to try the MAC strobe cream, but never went and bought one! Maybe this will be a good introduction to strobe creams!

Strobe creams are for subtle but easy to blend highlighting on the face and body. You can mix this with your base product to achieve an overall glow.

Vella Flower Flower B.B. and Secret Kiss Face Fit Strobe Cream – Memebox K-Style 3 @iamcherrylemon

Vella Flower Flower B.B 15ml, RRP $26

This is a hugely expensive BB cream if we compare cost per ml, even more expensive than my Burberry BB! Maybe this is extremely good, but I haven’t tested this BB cream yet! I am checking out the TonyMoly BCDation from Global #15 at the moment.

Tonymoly 7 days Tattoo Eyebrow 0.8ml, RRP $8

I have received the dark brown option. This product’s aim is to fill in brows and let you forget about redoing them until few days later. It supposed to work like a tattoo for your brows.

Using this brow pen, it gives a nice, neat natural finish. I do like the product, and the idea but this brow pen does not seem fulfil its claim. It supposed to be able to last for up to 7 days. But mine came off almost 100% just overnight. I was only using the last drop of my “Yes to Tomatoes facial cleanser” and nothing heavy duty. But I will continue to use this pen, as it lasts the day pretty well : )

Style Y, Soft Fit Mix & Match Pencil and Powdert Shadow 0.5g, RRP $9

I received the option 03 Deep Choco Liner & Gold Tip. A 2-in-1 product (any multi-use) is a winner in my eyes! I am happy to use the liner and shadow powder as normal but not highlight my “already” big eye bags! This liner lasted on me for 6 hours without eye lid primer. A good alternative to normal black kohl.

The info card suggests to use the highlight powder on aegyosal (rounded skin just under eyes) to create fake eye bags for a signature Korean make-up look. Er.. I already have bags under eyes that are very prominent :p so no thanks!

Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek 5ml, RRP $13

Ah, another 2 in 1 product! Ha this time I might have to pass as this is just not my type of pink! I shall be selling/swapping this. I received option 03 Raspberry. But it is a very youthful cute pink indeed!

Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek - Memebox K-Style 3 @iamcherrylemon

Style Y Color Fit Creamy Lip & Cheek – Memebox K-Style 3 @iamcherrylemon

Color World Jewelish Stick Shadow 10g, RRP $13

I have the 07 Starship Violet option for the shadow stick. I love shadow sticks as they are ultra-easy to use and great to travel with. I have been loving Bobbi Brown shadow sticks but they do not come cheap at £20 each! I’ve tried this shadow stick, the violet is medium and not dark, not a shade that I normally would use. It contains some tiny glitter which would cause fallout AND stick on top of my cheeks. This is what you would expect from all sort of glitter if you’re not wearing an eye primer.

The pigmentation is good and not too strong, it feels creamy… and creamy shadow creases on my lids when not worn with primer. So it lasted 4 hours on un-primed eyelids.

Well I am not loving it,it probably won’t make another appearance anytime soon :p

Color World Jewelish Stick Shadow - Memebox K-Style 3 @iamcherrylemon

Color World Jewelish Stick Shadow – Memebox K-Style 3 @iamcherrylemon

Total box retail value is $80, this box cost $23 plus shipping. Not a huge value box, but again it contains more useable items for me. With this trend, I should only get cheapy boxes. HA!

Is it very Korean inspired? 100%

Overall Score for the K-Style #3 Box: 3.5 out of 5, since I can use most of the products and I like the tattoo brow pen!

If you have missed the unboxing of My Cute Wishlist 3 and OMG3, then here they are!

Thanks for reading! Did you get this bundle? :D Did you like it?

Unboxing Memebox Special Box #61 My Cute Wishlist 3 (What is the definition of Cute? Really)

Shara Shara Fairy’s Make-up Synergy Sun Cream SPF45 PA++, Memebox CW3 @iamcherrylemon

Hi there! Do you like my creepy doll’s mug shot? :P Great for Halloween right?

I have received this trio bundle last Monday, and yes I have been sitting on them for a long time :p But I hope you would enjoy this unboxing :)

Special Box #61 My Cute Wishlist #3

Memebox Cute Wishlist 3

Memebox Cute Wishlist 3

I believe this is going to be referred as the “Creepy Doll memebox” forever! Ever since the first unboxing found on Instagram, meme-addicts have been commenting just how creepy this doll looks with the vacant eyes and smirk. I guess I am used to seeing these *type* of cute dolls. I have no problem with it :p

Okie back to business, here’s the box contents:

Memebox My Cute Wish List 3 - Box Contents - @iamcherrylemon

Memebox My Cute Wish List 3 – Box Contents – @iamcherrylemon

Hope Girl Tinted Lip Balm 5g, RRP$12

Hope Girl is a well-known brand to meme-addicts, this brand pops up in many Memeboxes. Its packaging seems like a trademark for the company! Pink leopard print on most products!

I received shade 02 Love Peach

I need to queue this up, as I am still using my freebie Clinque chubby sticks.

Shara Shara Fairy’s Make-up Synergy Sun Cream SPF45 PA++ 30ml, RRP $21

It is the start of winter in the UK, I do not see a desperate need for it just yet. But I might start using this as a make-up base with added SPF benefits.

This creepy cute but travel-unfriendly doll might come in good use by summer as well!

Ddung Family Foam Cleansing Cream 120ml, RRP $12

I have received the foam cleanser in 02 Milky option. The packaging on this is much cuter than all of normal cleansers I have used before. This Milky version contains milk protein extracts, chamomile flower extracts, lavender extracts, pepper mine leaf and rosemary leaf extracts. Although I couldn’t smell any of that.

As mentioned, I am finishing the “Yes to Tomatoes” cleanser, I have started testing this one. So far so good! It smells milky-ish (like the white rabbit sweet you can buy from Chinese supermarket :P), but feels soapy slimy and not easy to rinse. I reckon using a toner after this cleanser is a must. I cannot say I prefer this cleanser, I will stick with it and see if I can get used to the slightly too strong milky scent.

Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub, 10g RRP $7

I love a good lip scrub, I have been using my Lush sugar lip scrub for a while and starting to get a bit bored! So this item arrives at the right time ;) But with the Lush lip scrub you can actually eat the scrub (not that I want to but it is very tempting!).

I am guess you can actually ingest the walnut shell? This is an extremely gentle lip scrub, the exfoliation is quite unnoticeable to me. But I love the texture, it is soft as butter, smells sweet but not sickening. I am very keen to carry this around as a lip balm more than keeping it at home as a scrub!

This scrub is enriched with honey extracts, avocado oil and argan spinsoa kernel oil. (please note the cute and love-able packaging woohahahhaaheheheh)

Yooungwoosa Oh! It’s Lovely and Soft Cream 45g, RRP $47

There’s no mention of its ingredients on the information card, which makes me slightly worry and cautious. It does claim to moisturises skin, smooth, making it silky and smooth.

Youngwoosa Oh! It’s Lovely and Soft Cream - Memebox CW3 @iamcherrylemon

Tony Moly Red Cheeks Girls’ Patch 1 pack, RRP $2

Very cute! These hydrogel patches are for intensive moisture relief, soothing to dry, rosy cheeks. Enriched with rose flower, cherry blossom, apricot, aloe vera, cucumber and green tea extracts.

I already have overly red cheeks.. I am not called Cherry for no reason. These will be very useful for Winter, as I bound to get red irritated dry patches on my cheeks : (

TonyMoly Red Cheeks Girl’s Patch - Memebox CW3 @iamcherrylemon

TonyMoly Red Cheeks Girl’s Patch – Memebox CW3 @iamcherrylemon

Total box retail value is $101, this box costs $29 plus shipping normally. There isn’t a MCW box at the moment, but you should take a look at “My Lovely Boutique” should you be interested in slightly cuter packaging on products. I have high hopes for that one.

Is it cute? Not really

Overall Score for the Cute Wishlist #3 Box: 2.5 out of 5. Not as cute as MCW1 but I think this is cuter than MCW2, for which I did not get… Now I hope MCW4 will be more than 1st edition! Please memegods!

NOTD Laquerlicious No Tricks, Just Treats #Halloween

NOTD Laquerlicious - No Tricks Just Treats and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Blazing Blue - photo swatch @iamcherrylemon

Hello. … so it will be Halloween this Friday! This will be my last festive manicure for now. I actually have done another but it made me looking like wicked witch of the West! So I’ll spare you from that.
For today’s mani, I’ve used Laquerlicious “No Tricks, Just Treats” over Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Blazing Blue.
I’ve bought the Lacquerlicious from the fb nail group for £6 I think. It’s from Laquerlicious 2013 Halloween.
It basically is a glitter bomb with clear base containing green, white, red,  pink, gold, black and yellow glitter in the forms of stars, moons, big round, small rounds and tiny ribbons! It’s jam packed! I thought I had to fish the glitter out from the bottle as it has sunk to the bottom during storage. But it is picking up glitter pieces very well, I’m very pleased with it.
This glitter polish over Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Blazing Blue is looking better than expected. But not quite Halloweeny… Then again I didn’t want black polish base.
Here’s a blurry shot but the glitter glimmer so nicely :D

Memebox #45 Chocolate Mania unboxing (Only for the chocoholics)

image

Woohoo! Couldn’t be more excited to receive a memebox! A chocolate themed memebox has landed! Thank you memebox, it’s a great one!

image

Official box description
You’ve waited long enough, you chocolate manias! How much is chocolate on your mind?
If you’re a sucker for chocolatey treats like us, and want to see your everyday beauty products look, feel, or smell like real chocolate, this is the perfect box for you!
Indulge yourself with all the benefits that chocolate has to offer without all the guilt and calories! Chocolate, known to be loaded with minerals and antioxidants, provides beauty benefits that will make you feel and look your best! I mean, who hasn’t felt loads better after biting down into a chunk of chocolate!

Cacao has known skincare benefits and it has been incorporated until skincare and beauty products for a long time.
You can check out my Chocolate themed blog posts #1/2/3! I was going to say I’m not a huge fan of chocolate but I think I am being converted into one!

image

image

Anyhow, on to the unboxing! My box contains 8 items!

Zamian Super Gold Cacao Pack 150g (rrp $22)
hmm this product claims to contain 99.9% gold AND cacao powder. The product is used for smoothing, nourishing and firming the skin. I actually do not have any mask /pack that’s chocolate based :D so I am happy for this to join my arsenal of skincare!

image

Shara Shara Tempting Avocado Chocolate Massage Cream 100ml (rrp $11)
Avocado is a skin and hair nourishing natural ingredient, so I am expecting this massage cream to be good. I shall report back if it makes the mark! It is used for nourishing, smoothing and firming “rough” and “saggy” skin. Sometime you just have to love memebox to come up such “to the point” description! ehhehe

Neogen Code9 Gold Cacao Cream 50ml (rrp $30)
Funny, this cream did not smell much of chocolate. It is an intensively moisturising and nourishing facial butter cream. Would this be too much for my combination oily skin? It also contains mango and cacao seed extracts, Shea butter and olive oil. That sounds like a recipe for a wonderful body cream.

image

Missha Cacao & Cream Facial Scrub 95g (rrp $12)
Wooowweeee this is my favourite! Why? Because it smells like chocolate cookie and cream! I just want to scoop it up and eat it :P I don’t think I want to use it… it smells way too lovely! okie I will try it at least once then ;)

image

Skin Food Cacao Hand Balm 50g (rrp $5)
This little guy comes in a very cute but study tub. Love it! Why do I feel I don’t want to use any of these cute things.. I just want to look at them or smell them :p hehe

This balm actually smells heavenly and feels slightly too balmy. My hands are left slightly greasy feeling but it soon absorbed well. I still like it alot :D

image

dearBerry Miss Mona Lisa Eyebrow pencil in Choc brownie 0.3g (rrp $2)
Aww man, can it get any better? I’m currently using a eye brow cake by Illamasqua, I shall have a go of this product and report back! It promises to be long lasting and no-smudge.

Binucook Cacao Choco Pie Soap 70g (rrp $6)
One of the lovely ladies mentioned that this soap looks like a Wagon Wheel! It really does, if you don’t know what a Wagon wheel is. .. Here’s a picture. It is a chocolate covered marshmallow snack, it used to be a very popular chocolatey treat!

image

Okie this soap has a lovely lovely scent to it, I am not a soap person so I shall utilise this in the bathroom :p

Purederm Choco Cacao Collagen Mask 18ml (rrp $2)
Yay another special one to add to my sheet mask collection! I absolutely love chocolate mask (if you’re in the UK or you can source one… You GOT to try this warming chocolate mask! only 99p )

image

Total retail value for the box is $90, not a huge value box but it contains everything I can use and this is more important to me than having some high value items that I do not or cannot make use of.

All in all, I love this box as it smells and looks so good! 5 out of 5!

===

 

 

This box is now sold out, but there might be some restocks of it appearing in the “Ships-Now” page. It is more like pot luck as there isn’t a set date or time for the restock to happen.
Currently, there are some food boxes available, i.e. pumpkin pie box, Green foods cosmetics and Apple Mojito boxes.
The Garden of Eden also sounds very interesting! I am keeping my eyes peeled and might pick this up if it is still available by the end of week!

My favourite drugstore makeup essentials

 

My Drugstore Makeup Essentials @iamcherrylemon

My Drugstore Makeup Essentials @iamcherrylemon

Hello there :) First of all, please excuse the tatty looking makeup items in the picture, you will see why in a minute.

Today I have a slightly different post for you. I have a list of drugstore makeup that I have tried and they’re truly well loved (hence they are not in their best pristine conditions!), and I believe these items can also make very good starter items for beginners who might be still experiencing and playing.

If you use makeup regularly but haven’t tried these before. .. They are well worth checking out ;)

 

MUA baked eye shadow trio in Innocence

MUA Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Innocence - @iamcherrylemon

MUA Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Innocence – @iamcherrylemon

This eye shadow trio is my all-time #1 favourite drugstore makeup. It is super useable, gorgeous colours that work in perfect harmony. The colours are shimmery, not chalky at all because baked shadows are pretty good at that :P.

I get the most compliments when wearing these shades from the trio. Hence I love it so so much! At £2.50 it makes it even more amazing. (Swatch was done with only 1 swipe of the product!)

Superdrug, £2.50 rrp

If MUA is not available in your country, you can also try Makeup Revolution Baked eye shadow palette in “Pure and Innocent”. This palette is similar but I find this not as full-on pigmented. MUR ships pretty much worldwide.

Elf Baked Blush in Pinktastic (product closeup) - @iamcherrylemon

Elf Baked Blush in Pinktastic (product closeup) – @iamcherrylemon

This is my absolute favourite highlighter, ever. I picked this up knowing it was a dupe for MAC soft and gentle highlighter. I thought I will try out the dupe before getting the real deal. But never did I expect Pinktastic to be this “impressive”. I like it so much that I am so sure I don’t need to buy the MAC version.

It gives a beautiful and healthy glow to any skin. It is pigmented and long lasting. This wears very well even on my combination oily skin, lasts about 6 to 7 hours before fading.

I’ve used Benefit liquid highlighter in High Beam and Hourglass Incandescent Light, but I’m still reaching out to this Pinktastic as it’s pretty fantastic :P

I bought mine for around £2.50 while it was in sale. RRP £3.95 and is still a bargain! (Available from elf online, Elf has one store in the UK, Wales)

Sleek Shimmer Blush Rose Gold - photo swatch - @iamcherrylemon

Sleek Shimmer Blush Rose Gold – photo swatch – @iamcherrylemon

A classic and easy to use shade which suits most skin tones. “Rose gold” is a light warm pink with gold shimmer. It looks very close to Benefit Rockateur. When I use this blush I would skip the highlighter!

There’s a nicely sized mirror in the compact. I love everything about this, apart from the closure. It’s very hard to open! This product does contain talc, mica and some silicone, some of you might need to test before purchase.

 

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil Dark Brown - @iamcherrylemon

Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil Dark Brown – @iamcherrylemon

This is pretty basic but it does the job well! I’ve been using this for over 6 years before I discover my current fav eyebrow cake by Illamasqua. But I still take this on my travels! The cap has a stiff brush for which you can brush and smooth your brows with! £2.99 RRP

 

L’Oréal, Maybelline and Rimmel lipsticks

My favourite drugstore lipsticks - @iamcherrylemon

My favourite drugstore lipsticks – @iamcherrylemon

My most used lipstick in 2013 was L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Caresse Lipstick in Aphrodite Scarlet.

I love the fact that it gives a light wash of colour that’s very easy to wear. You won’t even need a mirror for that :P It’s balmy, moisturising and slightly shiny. Love it, it’s a stable item in my handbag.

Unfortunately I believe this is no longer on official website, this can only mean its being discontinued! I still see these in some smaller Boots & Superdrug stores, I shall stock up next time I come across this shade.

Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade 05, this is a lovely medium bright pink that looks light fuchsia, it is great for day time look. Kate lipsticks formulation is creamy and non-drying. The colour last quite well with a light sheen. This is slightly cool toned but still look pretty good with my warm toned complexion.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick – 315 Rich Plum

This is my go-to lipstick for work! It is very much MLBB (my lips but better) shade! The texture is creamy and wears very comfortably. I love it this shade! But I need to find a dupe for this now that it is very hard to find. I have found some on Amazon and ebay only.

All swatches done with 1 swipe from the bullet

Revlon Lash Potion waterproof mascara in blackest black

Revlon Lash Potion Mascara Waterproof in Blackest Black - @iamcherrylemon

Revlon Lash Potion Mascara Waterproof in Blackest Black – @iamcherrylemon

I’ve used up 3 of these mascaras, it is a big deal for me as I’m not too loyal with mascaras. I find this mascara keeps the curls on my stubby lashes well (only after I’ve curled them)! And the mascara doesn’t clump and it’s smudge proof on me. Being waterproof mascara, you’ll need eye makeup remover formulated for waterproof makeup. I’m sure there are more awesome drugstore mascaras out there, but I touch and smudge my eyes too often, so only waterproofs for me!

 

You probably noticed that I haven’t got any drugstore foundation here, I’m not a snob but I only own a few drugstore foundations. Out of the very few, I only liked the L’Oreal Lumi Magique Foundation! It gives me a lovely radiance that last around 5 hours. Unfortunately I have left my bottle at my parents’ house, and not been able to fetch it for photos yet!

 

At the time of posting this, Superdrug (UK drugstore chain) has a 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics. Great timing for picking out any drugstore makeup!

 

Thank you for reading and do let me know any of your favourite drugstore makeup essentials!

 

 

Happy Monday!

Memebox My Mask Box 5th Edition - Box Contents @iamcherrylemon

Memebox My Mask Box 5th Edition – Box Contents @iamcherrylemon

Hello! I am a huge fan of all sorts of masks and have received the Mask box more than couple of weeks ago, and have been enjoy using some of the items included. So here’s my “late but better than never” blog post for the box! (Plus, this is a restocked item)

Box contents:

Pure Smile Sheet Mask 5 Set (20ml * 5) $6
Pure Smile is a popular drugstore brand in Korea, its products are affordable and good value for money. For this box, you are getting a randomly selected version of the Pure Smile masks.

Obviously I got the Mayu (Horse Oil) version…it has been very much a controversial topic awhile back on meme-FB groups. Some people are adamant they are not going to use any Mayu related products, and some people are happy to use horse by products.

It seems like people who want to try Mayu did not get Mayu mask option, and vice versa! I originally wanted the pearl version, as I have tried those and like pearl masks in general. Anyhow, I shall be braving the masks in the near future. I am already offloading 1 to my sister.

Pure Smile Mask sheet MAYU – Memebox My Mask Box 5th Edition – @iamcherrylemon

Insobeau Beauty Secret Step Up Bust Mask $14

Yup you have not misread it; it is a mask for your bust ladies! It claims to be able to tighten, lift and moisturise your bust area. This is to be worn over night or in day time for around 8 hours.
This mask comes in a foil packet and it feels exactly like the gel eye patch! If you have this mask, try not to cut the packaging open and damage the masks themselves.
It was a good call to wear this at night, as they don’t really stick that well! I would hate to have these things fell out of my top!
I will stick with the conventional bust gel or creams :P

Pro You Pore Control Facial Mask 200g $53

A fairly standard wash off type of mask, it claims to minimise pores but how! I don’t know, I know for a fact…. Pore sizes do not change. But you can make them less enlarged by clearing out the gunk buried in them. I have tried this once, I find this mask very refreshing. But seriously, $53?

Milky Dress Aqua Sleep Pack 50ml $23

I love love love sleeping packs! They are, to me, the most moisturising masks ever! My pillow case might not love it, but I love waking up with better skin! I highly recommend trying and finding a sleeping pack that suits your skin type :D

Milky Dress Aqua Sleeping Pack was $25 now $12 at memeshop

OK! Neck wrinkles anyone? I admit, my neck is probably most neglected part of my body. But yet it is on show every single day. I must start taking better care, as neck can reveal your age pretty easily! Because I use a lot of SPF on my face, and somehow the SPF did not travel down to my neck… my face and neck is of different colours L I will promise myself, more neck masks and SPF! I already apply loads of essence and serums on my neck :D

Purederm Wrinkle Reducer Gel Patch 6 Treatments $12 a box
There are 6 pairs of the under eye treatment in this box. I have not used sticky under eye patches before. This is my first!
For this treatment, you supposed to apply the gel patches to your under eye areas and leave for 20minutes, or wear these to sleep for around 6 hours. I happily have worn these to sleep. But honestly fear that they will leave marks on my face. But I was very relieved that it did not leave any marks on me :)

(Something strange happenen overnight…. my cat decided to lick the eye patches and woke me up!! He probably was trying to rescue me from the strange patches hehehahhaha)

Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack 100ml $30

I didn’t understand the hype of piggy masks, piggy cleansers or piggy cream until now. This is my first ever Elizavecca product and I can honestly say this is seriously good to use. I enjoyed it very much :D The texture is so strange, it really does feel like jelly (or jello for the Stateside friends). I believe this is a product most people want from this box :)

But very careful where you purchase this mask, as it has been found few sites are selling the faked version of this mask.

This box costs $23 + $6.99 for shipping, the retail value of this box is at $144! I might repurchase the piggy jella pact but there is no way I will splash out on the pore control mask for $53!

Mask Box 5th and 6th editions are all sold out now, but 7th edition is still available at memebox online for $23 plus shipping.

All in all, a great box! It contains some trusty sheet masks as well as lovely sleeping pacts and eye patches!

Thanks for reading!! Take care :D
