Memebox Special #38 My Mask Box (5th Edition) Unboxing and First Impressions #MyMemeboxAddiction

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.

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

Tosowoong Help Me Neck Patch 2 masks $3

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

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask sampling #SkincareFridays product review

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask - SkincareFridays product review @iamcherrylemon

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask – SkincareFridays product review @iamcherrylemon

Friday again, yay!!
Today I’m reviewing the Innisfree pore clay mask. I had few sachets of the clay mask samples, as Elly went to Seoul last month and bought back some yummy Innisfree products! Thanks for picking these up for me! Using the last one today so best to blog about it ;)

Innisfree is a Korean beauty brand that’s famous for using pure and natural ingredients. Examples of ingredients used include green tea, seaweed and volcanic clay. They source their naturally active ingredients from the island of Jeju. Jeju has been dubbed as the Hawaii of Korean! I love their product packaging and their ethical ways in insisting on using the best natural ingredients. Super volcanic clay pore mask is Innisfree’s bestselling skincare product.

Product claims:
Tightens pores + Removes sebum + Exfoliates dead skin cells + Offers deep cleansing + Enhances skin tone + Provides cooling effects

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask - SkincareFridays product review @iamcherrylemon

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask – (NO IDEA whatsoever about what’s written! ) @iamcherrylemon

My take on the product :)

1 sample sachet contains 4ml of the product. .. this is not enough to cover my whole face! There wasn’t any English instruction so I applied it onto dry skin. I managed to spread this on my T-Zone, where my congested pores need the most help. (I later found out that you need to spread it very very thinly but this way worked for me regardless).

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask @iamcherrylemon

Innisfree Super volcanic pore clay mask @iamcherrylemon

The clay mask itself smells of nothing much, it looks like thick and creamy cement and it spreads like thick and creamy cement.
Once my t-zone is covered I’ve left this on for 15 to 20mins before washing it off with warm water.
During the 15/20 minutes, the mask did not feel too dry nor cracked on my face. If you’ve used mud mask before you’ll know and understand the pain of smiling while having a dried mud mask on!

Like all other clay mask application, I would follow up with toner to make sure I haven’t left any traces of the mask.

Afterwards, my skin suddenly feels like it can breathe! It could be pseudo symptoms but I think this mask has done a great job at de-congesting!

When I woke up in the morning, my skin feels good and looks brighter. I’m very happy with this mask. As this was my last sachet, I’ve ordered my regular sized tub and it is making its way to me!

I would recommend this clay mask to people with oily to combination skin that’s acne prone and/or with congested pores.

You can get a tub for around $15 on Amazon.com and in the UK Yesstyle is selling this for around £13 plus shipping.

Memeshop has a special set of Innisfree products on sale at $30. It includes a tub of this lovely pore clay mask, hand cream, serum and couple of sheet masks.

 

Thank you for reading :D

Shiseido Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Eye Liners (BR601 Amber Brown and GD802 Dark Olive Green) product review

Shiseido Majolica Majorca Automatic Eye Liners - GD802 and BR601 Product Review - @iamcherrylemon

Hello there, hope the week is going well for you :) Who’s tired of the UK’s ever-changing weather! I just had my umbrella blown shut! Ok enough of ranting. .. :)

Majolica Majorca is a sister company of Shiseido, pricing is more affordable and the quality is still pretty good. It is a well-loved brand within Asia.
I love liquid liners, as most gel or pencil liners would smudge/transfer on my lids during the day. I like to try new liners but my favourite is still Dolly Wink ;) I picked these 2 liners up as they are not the normal black liquid liner pens. So far, I have been using these for a few weeks and here are my thoughts on the liners :)

image

Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner shades

Each liner pen contains 1.3ml of product, it doesn’t sound like a lot! First of all, it took me a few seconds to work out what I had to do when I first opened the packaging! Basically, you have to remove the bright orange secure clip. To start using the liner, you must twist the top of the pen until you hear clicking sounds and the ink will start to flow into the brush nib. I find it hard to control how much liner ink I can dispense! As 1 click will give you enough ink for lining both eyes!
I always preferred to use a brush applicator over one with felt-tip. It is easier to use and I can get a very precise line with brushes.

image

Shiseido Majolica Majorca Automatic Eye Liners @iamcherrylemon

BR601 is a lovely amber brown with slight sheen, it is not metallic and not reflective at all. (see swatch) This is my preferred one out of the 2, the colour is great and it is opaque with 1 swipe of the product.
GB802 is a very dark olive green with slight sheen. This one is not as opaque and I have to line twice to get a nice solid line.
I like the fact these liners are not shimmery and the colours are wearable,and can enhances your eye colour.

Shiseido Majolica Majorca Automatic Eye Liner - Brush tip - @iamcherrylemon

Pros:
Easy to use
Smudge-proof and slightly waterproof
Light and travel-friendly
Price is reasonable
Great colour range available
Clean and precise line application

Cons:
Pigmentation (not consistent across the range)
Very wet consistency, it takes slightly longer to dry/set
Hard to control the flow of the liner ink (the twisting of the liner pen!)
Start to fade after 6 hours wear (on my oily eye lids)

Price: Around £5/6 in JP, £11 in UK online sites (such as YesStyle)

NOTD Halloween inspired stamped manicure using China Glaze polish in Riverting Stamped with Moyou London Kaleidoscope Plate Collection 09 @iamcherrylemon

Hello and Happy Friday, I’ve been AWOL… Please excuse me! Today I’m back with a Halloween inspired manicure.
At work, I don’t think anyone will take me seriously if I start wearing and drawing skulls and creepy crawlies on my nails XD
It did cross my mind what kinda spiders I want thou :P so here’s a toned down version with just the right colours.

Riveting is a brilliant orange shimmer, it fires up while in direct sunlight or with flash. I like it alot but I don’t wear it enough. I normally like pairing it with China Glaze “Electrifying”. Yes they make a serious orange overkill!

I’ve chosen to use this Moyou plate image for its simple yet effective design. It is not the most intricate design so it’s very easy to use and for the stamper to pick up the image clearly.

Thank you and until next time. .. Have fun :)

Slippery Slimy Snail Goodness as Skincare Products? How far would you go for your skincare routine? #SkincareFriday product reviews

Hi there, how are you? I hope you are having a lovely Friday so far. Today’s #SkincareFriday post is all about… yes a funny ingredient called mucin (snail extract).

Snail extracts have been recognised for skin recovery benefits by ancient Greeks, and it has been making a huge comeback in Korea for the past few years.

I also have heard of beauty products containing spider web extracts, horse oil and bird poo, hair treatment with bull’s semen? I draw the line at snail extracts for now.

I am squeamish, and I have not been adventurous with these “natural but weird” skincare ingredients until now. I keep hearing a lot of good things and how effective snail products are. Apparently, even Katie Holmes is a big fan of snail slime products used for her glowing skin!

Snail extracts also known to help restore skin’s youthful radiance with collagen, elastin, vitamin E and protein. Korean beauty companies have claimed that snail slime extracts can help with hyperpigmentation, scarring, reducing acne and anti-ageing. The list goes on and on, please note I am not a dermatologist, I am not here to tell you the proven facts about snail slime! I can only review the products, pass on my views about the pros and cons on the products I have chosen to try.

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics - Box Contents - @iamcherrylemon

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics – Box Contents – @iamcherrylemon

My only source for this yummy ingredient is via, you’ve guessed it, Korean beauty retailer memebox. There are many online Asian skincare companies that sell these products, but until I know this is working for me I won’t commit to it!

All the products I will be reviewing are from special box #10 Snail Cosmetics. This is a massive step for me in terms of trying out new skincare. Need to discard the snail images in my head and actually put the stuff on my face!

I didn’t even tell my other half when I use these products with snail slime extracts, just in case he freaks out or tell me to source my snail slime in our garden instead XD

Ok, the review!

DKDN ~ Snail Recover Intensive Serum 30ml

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics - Serum - @iamcherrylemon

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics – Serum – @iamcherrylemon

DKDN Snail Recover Intensive Serum photo swatch @iamcherrylemon

DKDN Snail Recover Intensive Serum photo swatch @iamcherrylemon

This serum consists of 93% pure extract from the healing property of snails. It claims to nourish, moisturise, and brighten up dull and saggy skin.

This is one of the first products I have tried from the snail box, it is a serum in a glass bottle. The serum itself is clear and the consistency is medium-thick. It smells faintly of plants (??).

The usage instruction for this serum is that you apply it after cleansing and essence, dab a good amount onto your skin and let it absorb the goodness.

I really enjoyed using this, it gives enough moisture to my skin even when I am not using a night cream. I can see the product is getting used up in the bottle, it is starting to make me sad knowing I will run out of this stuff one day!!

This product retails at around $33

Score: 4 out of 5

Pure Smile ~ Non-Silicone Snail Treatment 250g

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics - Snail Slime Hair Treatment - @iamcherrylemon

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics – Snail Slime Hair Treatment – @iamcherrylemon

As you probably know, most shampoo and conditioners contain some amount of silicone. As silicone makes your hair feel smoother and look shinier but it also coat your hair, stopping it from absorbing good nutrients (if you do apply it that is!). It is refreshing to use a non-silicone product on my hair. I have been using this treatment a few weeks, it does make my hair feel softer afterwards. The product smells of artificial rose, but it is undetectable after rinsing. But it does not give me that fake *smoothness* silicone products would!

This product retails at around $16

Score: 2.5 out of 5, I am still a big fan of Argan oil hair treatments, it is not being replaced just yet!

Elensilia ~ EGF Renovage Youth Activating Eye Cream 25g

This eye cream is very hyped up and loved by many Asian skincare enthusiasts.

It claims to have ability to delays, repairs, stops signs of ageing on the eyes. It also nullify fine wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes too.

I cannot verify this cream did all that for me! But I have seen slight improvement on the moisture front, on the fine lines around my eyes. I am happy in that sense, as the new lines appeared after I tested another eye cream from another beauty box! Yes I am annoyed about that!

This product retails at $89, I am not sure this is the real RRP, but it is the price given on the Snail box information card.

Score: 3.5 out of 5

The Skin House ~ Wrinkle Snail System Cream 50ml

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics - Snail Wrinkle System Cream - @iamcherrylemon

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics – Snail Wrinkle System Cream – @iamcherrylemon

This company is famous for producing products that are made from 100% pure nature ingredients. This Snail system cream claims to help retain moisture level for 24 hours, it replenishes and nourishes skin that is dry, rough and wrinkle-prone. This cream is recommended for people with dry skin that’s in need of wrinkle care.

I am not at that stage but there’s nothing wrong with starting your anti-ageing regime. I have oily combination skin and few dry patches. The texture of this cream is the most weird and peculiar, I have never dealt with any face, hand or body cream with the same texture! It is stringy and looks like slime… (don’t fear yet). It is actually fun to use despite being horribly messy to use on the face. I once dropped the protective lid onto the pink memebox. Of course, it had to land cream side down… ah, it smells like herbal plant derived products.

To use, I utilise the little plastic scoop that comes with the cream. I scoop up a little amount and warm it up between my palms (that creates more strings!) before pressing this lightly onto my face. It feels heavy but it sinks into the skin really well, my skin feels like it is just drinking it all up. It scares me, my skin certainly is not moisturised enough for it to absorb all that! Anyway, I am really liking this cream. This is probably my favourite product from the box!

I have been using this cream on and off for past few weeks. I find that this is very nourishing on skin and I do not need to apply this every single night. This is a really good night cream :) skin feels more supple and nourished. Big thumbs up!

This Wrinkle snail system cream retails at $18

Score: 4 out of 5

Purederm ~ Age Regenerating Multi-step Treatment: Age Regenerating Ampoule & Snail 3D Mask, 25ml @ $4

This mask comes in 2 portions, the top pouch is filled with a Cell Illuminating Ampoule, in which you apply this onto the skin before the mask. The mask is cut ok and fitted my face. To be honest, this is the first time I have used mask that comes with extra essence/ampoule. Not sure if this was necessary? :P Anyhow, I love sheet masks and I like this one.

DewyTree ~ Snail Vitalising Mask 25g @ $3 approx

This mask was not on the information card inside the box, so I am guessing this is a freebie mask! :)

I did enjoy using this mask, the sheet mask itself was very comfortable on the skin and it fits quite well. The scent was quite noticeable but it is not something that would bother me :p

I have left it on for 20 minutes, the result seems good and my skin felt moisturised the next morning. I am not too loyal to sheet masks, hard to say I will seek this out and make a repurchase.

Memebox Special Box #10 Snail Cosmetics – Facial Sheet Masks – @iamcherrylemon

These are all the snail slime products that I have, apart from the sheet masks, the rest of the products are being very loved in my skincare routine.

Thanks for reading :)

Are you familiar with these “weird but natural” ingredients? As I know I am late to the party… :P

Enjoy!

These whitening products sound very scary initially, whitening makes you think the product might contain bleach for skin! I personally have been using whitening products for years and it has not change my skin shade. I have stayed around NC25 to NC30.

6 full size products with retail value of $188. Good value. But to be honest, I wouldn’t pay $29 for a body lotion! But is always nice to try :)

image

image

image

6 full size products but 1 of them is one-use. . So I count that as 5! This box has retail value of $129.
Another good value box but rrp value is nothing if the products don’t work! I shall report back with few week’s usage!

Although there are no real cute Princess themed items, nothing too pinky too girly… I’m not complaining as the contents seems to be what I’m looking for and willing to try ;D

I’ve enjoyed using and testing all the previous memebox items. It really has upped my skincare game. I can see a difference already :)

I hope you like this unboxing post and gotten a feel of what these boxes are like. I did not get the Rapunzel box, it is all for beautiful, strong hair and it looked like a very good box as well! If you are interested in any of these boxes, you might be able to catch a restock of them! Just stalk the “Ship Soon” page like I do every-single-day :p

NOTD Lilypad Lacquer in Flaming Hot, gold flake glitter holographic polish, photo swatch

NOTD Lilypad Lacquer Holo polish in Flaming Hot (Direct Sunlight) @iamcherrylemon

NOTD Lilypad Lacquer Holo polish in Flaming Hot (Direct Sunlight) @iamcherrylemon

Hello there, today’s post is a swatch post only. This is “Flaming Hot” by Lilypad Lacquer. It’s not a straight forward holographic polish, but it also contain gold flakes with holo effects that can be seen at certain angles. It doesn’t make it less beautiful but it has extra dimension to it.
Flaming Hot is a gold mini flakes, holographic polish. The normal colour is peachy gold, reddish but it is not a rose gold ;)

From LilypadLacquer:
“Flaming Hot” – From the “Crazy for Colour” collection – Hand mixed 5 FREE holographic nail lacquer Made in Australia
15ml. A gorgeous reddened peach holographic nail lacquer with gold sparkle.

The first swatches were taken with 2 coats of Flaming Hot without topcoat.

The following swatches were taken with 2 coats of Flaming Hot and “Out of the door” Fast drying topcoat. I’m testing this topcoat at the moment. It seems pretty decent but it’s not as thick as Seche Vite. This means it does show up any ridges if your colour coat is also thin.

I didn’t want to stamp over this or do much to it at all. It looks stunning as it is :)
I love LilypadLacquer, I googled many swatches and not found any that’s not worth getting!

I bought this from a blog sale, you can find Lilypad Lacquer from many indie online stores. Rainbow Connections and Sally Magpie both stock Lilypad Lacquer polishes.

Thanks for dropping by!
Happy Wednesday!
