Hello everyone, today I have 2 belated unboxing for Global #15 and Lucky #10 boxes! These 2 were picked up during the restock period. They came on snail mail then I had to try out some products ;P
Global #15 Box contents:
Mise en scène Perfect Repair Treatment Pack 180ml, RRP $16
A good hair treatment does save your hair from getting unmanageable! I have dyed my hair a few times and so I heavily depend on hair treatments, such as moroccan oil and hair masks.
I have tried this a few times and this is more nourishing to the hair than the snail hair gloss treatment from Snail #1 box. I am loving this one!
Mise en scène Perfect Serum 70ml, RRP $9
This serum contains 7 different natural oils: argan, camellia, oive, jojoba, coconut, apricot and marula. The serum is not oily nor sticky. This works out cheaper than Moroccan oil that I have been using for years, it would be perfect if this is readily available in the UK!
I really do like this from the first time I’ve tried it, I hope I will be able to find backup of this hair serum. I applied this before blow drying and my hair ends up less frizzy and almost silky! It feels and looks smoother, extremely happy with this.
Ariul Stress Reliving Purefull Cleansing Foam 75ml, RRP $8
This is a foamy bubble cleanser, it claims that the bubbles can penetrate deep into the skin and clean away makeup residues, skin impurities, blackheads and dead skin cells. I am not a big fan of foamy cleanser but it seems that all the cleansers I am getting from memeboxes are foamy! I am currently using the ddung Milky cleanser from the CW3 box. For which, I am still on the fence about, I am not sure I am stand the smell but it does a fabulous job at cleaning me skin!! What should I do!?
Tonymoly BCDation All Master SPF30 PA++ 20g, RRP $24
Hello BB + CC + Foundation, aka BCDation by Tonymoly. Tonymoly has merged 3 products into 1 with this BCDation. It has the blemish control, SPF of a BB cream, combined with the colour correcting properties of a CC cream, plus the coverage of a foundation into 1. Fancy natural-looking but high coverage? It sounds amazing but is it!? (I have previously purchased this item before I found out this is part of Global #15).
Well I believe it depends on your skin type, as it did look pretty good on me (with a lot of blending!) for a few hours, I would say around 3 to3.5 hours and BOOF! My oily combination skin played havoc and melted BCDation off my face. To be truthful, I am an oil slick, and I did not wear primer underneath that time. But the idea of a 3 in 1 product is to save you time and effort in makeup application.
I had to bust out my super primer “Hourglass “ for this to work “OK” for me. I had high hopes for this, but.. nevermind.
Miss.age Snail Anti-Wrinkle Serum 50ml, RRP $53
Fantastic, a snail serum! My last one from the Brightening box is at 30% at the moment, great timing memebox! Ehehe This is quite different, the consistency is more than slightly slimy, this is pretty thick. I shall report back once I start using this. I am hoping it will sit as well with me like the DKN one does!
Snail skincare aims to help skin regeneration and boost moisture level to the skin.
Tosowoong Makeon Lip Manicure 30 Seconds 5.5g, RRP $12
This lip manicure is like a very pigmented lip tint, colour with long lasting characteristics of a tint. It takes 30 seconds for this to dry and you are set for the day.
I have similar products (Lime Crime Velvetines) in my stash so I shall be selling/swapping this.
A word of warning, with these fast drying and long lasting lip products, please make sure your lips are moisturised and you have steady hands to apply the colour.
Shara Shara I Wanna Pencil Gel Liner, RRP $8
Brown liner! Going straight to swap pile, especially after I received the Beauty people gel liner pencil in Lucky #10 box! I know I am not giving it a chance, but I am ruthless like that 😛 whahahaa
I think the hair serum has totally won me over. I wish the whole box is filled with hair serum bottles and that will be my “Jackpot box”!
Global #15 is no longer available, you can check out Global box #18 here.
The total retail value of this box is $130, the cost of the box is $23 plus shipping. Good value box, do you think memebox will take my suggestion of a box filled with nothing by hair serum bottles? XD
This is my first Lucky box! I have been informed that this is the best way to catch up on very well loved items from previous memeboxes. There are chances that you get repeats of items you have gathered if you are a regular meme-boxers! So for me, this is kinda perfect 😛
Dr.MJ Bee Tox Control Cream 55ml, RRP $50
The high value item within the box! This facial cream contains bee venom, propolis, tea tree leaf water, rosemary and calendula extracts.
Bee venom and propolis are very popular skincare ingredients Apparently, our Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton also uses facial creams containing bee venom for your radiant good skin. (being naturally pretty and blessed with good skin also help :P) Calendula is known for its skin benefits, reducing inflammation with its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. It can help with other skin irritations such as insect bites, sunburn and rashes. This cream will sooth, nourish and rejuvenate the skin, help retain moisture within the skin.
Mstar Malus Intensive Hair Treatment 30g, RRP $14
More hair treatment! This one contains over 40 different natural extracts and contain 70% apple water. This treatment promises to firm up and strengthen the hair with continuous use.
My hair is pretty thick and not prone to breakage. I might add to my meme-swap/sell stash as someone will benefit from this more than me!
The Skin House Aloe Water Mist 80ml. RRP$11
I have been using the Avène eau de thermale spray in the office and on hot days for the last few years. It gives a fine mist of natural spring water and I am happy with it. NOW, with this “Skin House” Aloe Water, it contains extra skin benefits, aloe is great for moisturising and calming skin irritations.
Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence 60ml, RRP $22
Walaa! This essence contains snail secretion filtrate , bee venom (again!) and EGF to cleanse rough (?), damaged skin from external stresses and pollution. It is known to improve skin texture and increase moisture level within skin. I was so happy when I saw this as the spoiler for this box! I hear only good things about this essence 😀 ahahha I remember thinking, “bingo! I got what I wanted!!”. It did make me feel *lucky*!
I am really looking forward to start using this, I am currently on Eon essence, which I also love very much 😀
E choice Snow Brightening Body Cream 100g, RRP $4
This is an instant skin brightener for the body, it claims to provide long lasting tone-up effect as well as deep hydration and nourishment. This is pretty low value for a 100ml product! Might give this a try :o)
Beauty People Miss 100 Auto Gel Pencil Liner 0.5g, RRP $38
I received the Glimmer Bronze option and I am over the moon with it. Actually I would be happy with any of the colour choices. These gel pencil liner from Beauty People are known to be long lasting, so I am very happy to own one now as they really are long lasting and smudgeproof. This gel liner pencil also comes with a built-in sharpener.
For some reason, this gel pencil liner is retailed at $38. To be honest, I don’t think I will fork out $38 for a liner. The most I paid was for liquid liners from Lancôme and Burberry and they were around £23 price point!
Blithe Patting Water Pack (pouch sample)
These sample packs are great for introducing products to K-Beauty beginners, I have heard a lot of good things about this from all the FB groups. Each edition of patting water has different skin benefits.
On the info card, the suggested way of usage is to add a sample pack to a wash basin filled with clean water. Then splash this all over the face. Not sure about you, but this sounds wasteful to me!
I have just added this to the Aloe Water mist as recommended by almost everyone (I think I first heard about this from Veri, thx!)! So far, I am really liking it. It gives a great moisture boost to the face on a hot day or air-conditioned office etc. I prefer to use this on naked skin and not over makeup.
Total retail value of this box is $139 (excluding the Blithe Patting Water sample pack), the cost of the box is $23 plus $6.99 shipping.
A very good value box containing many useable items, so far, LOVE lucky boxes.
Lucky Box #10 and Super Lucky #11 are currently sold out, but Lucky bundle for Lucky boxes #12, #13 and #14 is available on special set $69 plus 1 payment of shipping. In theory, this will save you 2 shipping fees, around $14 for standard domestic shipping or save $38 on express shipping as you only pay 1 set of shipping fees for 3 boxes that are being delivered at different times.
Blithe Patting Water – (purple, green and yellow version) is on sale for $38 on memeshop at the moment.
Thank you for reading! Have a lovely week 🙂
