First up, The Face Shop Special Box #82 !
This is a relatively new brand, especially for me. But the Face Shop is making a big impression, I love their “too-cute” product packaging. Most of their products are very affordably priced and it adds to the appeal for most people.. well it fits the mentality of “if it doesn’t work for the face, I will use that on my feet :P”
This box is dinky small but it contains 6 full sized (not large) products.
Here we go, just a quick unboxing post for ya and some lovely pictures of cute product packaging to fill your day with “awwww…”
Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Cream 50ml, RRP $9
This is probably the most normal looking product in this box, a cream in a glass tub. This cream is for “sagging” skin, thanks memebox. Hahaha this cream contains a blend of calendula extracts for intensive hydration to the skin. It also has hyaluronic acid, which is known to help retain moisture.
Lovely Me:ex Pastel Cushion Blusher 5g, RRP $7
Awww this is just too cute to use!! I have the Coral Cushion 02. The packaging is absolutely adorable, as the packaging is mostly cardboard, this has added good eco-factor!
I have not used any blushes or any beauty product that comes with a puff like this. Although, it does look the norm for K-beauty.
Lovely Me:ex Mini Pet Hand Cream 30ml, RRP $6
Normally I would have been over the moon receiving such a cute product, but I just gotten the same one from my BNK haul (post should be up shortly).
This is a cute hand cream regardless, I do not mind this little kitty sitting on my desk at work all day every day. Fruity Floral scent option received!
I am using my Skinfood Cacao Hand balm at work at the moment, and I am loving it. Just wish that it will last longer and that I can get more use out of it. (but I am slathering my hands with the yummy cacao cream!)
Lovely Me:ex Dessert Lip Balm 6g, RRP $8
I have received the 02 Orange option, like most of the meme-addicts on fb. I am guessing memebox must have had a massive amount of orange lip balm! But I am happy with orange, although honey or strawberry would be preferred 😛 Did I just contradict myself?
Lovely Me:ex You&Eyes 05 Sand Brown 1.6g, RRP $5
I am not a huge fan of brown shades, although I am a neutral shadow lover. This has shimmery glitter, so I might make an exception for this :p
Milk Plus Calming Moisture Cream Shower 300ml, RRP $8
A huge bottle at 300ml! There is no description on ingredients. But it’s a shower cream, no issue! The official info card, “body lotion that moisturises your skin silky soft, supple and milky-white”..
But but but…. . Mine is not a body lotion? Doesn’t matter to me, it might matter to some people thou.
Total box retail value is $43, probably one of the lowest value box I have ever received. But I can make use of 5 out of 6 items, making it a very useable box for me. With extra cute factor, this box is pretty desirable for me. Yes I am all for cute packaging! The cost of the box is $23 plus shipping
Overall Score: 3 out of 5, a low valued but useable box, cute factor 100%!!
So, what do you think? I simply love the cuteness this box gives me 😀
OK, onto our second and last box of the day. THE SKINFOOD BOX (Superbox #84 Skin Food)
This comes in a much bigger and non-standard memebox, the box is dark but bright pink with black lettering. Warehouse probably run out of the standard boxes and used one of the older packaging for mine. I am fine with it, all my products are safe and sound, and that matters the most to me!
This box is weighty and it contains only 5 full-sized products. Although this box does not look as cute, it contains some bestsellers of the brand. This is a great starter/introduction box for the brand.
Facial Water Vita-C Cream 75g, RRP $13
Ah Vitamin C 😀 This cream contains Alaska glacier water, Vitamin C complete for delivering intensive hydration to the skin. The Vitamin C is from extracts of raspberry, acai berry, cranberry, and strawberry. I used to like Vitamin C products for the skin, I find it brightens my skin very well. I have not been using Vitamin C products for a while, so I would like to try this.
Black Sugar Mask Wash Off 100g, RRP $9
What can I say, this is the most popular product from the brand. I’ve heard of and wanted to try this products way before I heard of memebox.
This is a facial exfoliator rich in minerals and vitamins. It can remove dead skin cells, excess oil and skin impurities. It helps clearing the clogged pores and restore radiance and suppleness.
Egg White Pore Meringue Foam 200ml, RRP $13
This is one product that caught my eyes when I opened the box. The foaminess (that’s a word?) is pretty cool and there is such a big bottle of it! I hope to like this as it looks adorable!
Tomato Whitening Toner 180ml, RRP$17
I love tomatoes in skincare! Yes I absolutely do! These big red round fruits* (please see note at the end of this blog post) contains high level of lycopene, which helps with clearing and tightening your skin. There are a lot of studies in this area, so feel free to google and read up!
I can’t wait to crack this toner open, but I have a 500ml toner on the go… for which I have 80% left to go! Big thumbs up for including this in the box.
Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake 4g, RRP $5
I received the grey brown option. I love eyebrow cake, my favourite brow product is the brow cake by Illamasqua. I hope this will work as the Illamasqua one is almost 10 times more expensive!
Total retail value of the box is $57, yup another low value box. I hope I am not sounding a bit disappointed, which I am absolutely not!
I am happy as long as:
a) I am not overpaying
b) I can make use of the products
I believe this box fits the bill.
Thank you for reading and have a great evening! OH AH, it is Halloween night. Have fun trick or treating!
*(Tomatoes) – yes tomatoes are technically fruits of the tomato plant but they are used as vegetables in culinary cuisine like salads (wahahahahha). But seriously, it is technically a fruit!
