Happy Wednesday, hope this post finds you well. This box was launched couple of months ago after the revealing of “Not-So-Cute” Wish List boxes. Few people jumped onto this box, thinking this is how Memebox relaunching their cute box! Gosh, look at the box cover picture! So pink and cute :p
I think my blog post title has kinda summed up what I thought of the box, as I failed to see the loveliness of the box. Maybe my definition of lovely is not what this is.
The official box description mentioned that this box contains items that are cute and with exquisite packaging. I will let you be the judge of that.
1. Shara Shara Acerola Moist Oil Balm 30ml, RRP $17
Nice red tin with cherries printed on the lid. The product itself is nicely designed, easy to carry and use. The smell of the balm is sweet, and it melts into skin when applied. I don’t know why but I tested this on my lips, but it is NOT a lip balm.
The balm contains macadamia seed oil, horseradish seed oil, aloe vera leaf extracts, peach and acerola extracts. You can use this on any dry patches on your body. I will be carry this around in my bag for emergency.
Ps. Ever since I have discovered memebox, I keep adding more and more products into my handbag. I need a clear out!
2. Shara Shara Only You Necklace Lip Balm, RRP $34 (No.1 Juicy Peach)
This is a jewelled locket on a chain, it looks nice and I can see why this is included in this box. This is not my style so I shall be passing on this. Although, I have emailed meme to check the condition of the locket for me, I do not understand why the finish is not as expected. I wonder if there’s a bad batch.
3. Shara Shara Natural Shining BB SPF36 PA++ 40g, RRP $16
This BB Cream gives a natural coverage, it contains pearl powder, diamond powders, and amethyst powders for a lovely complexion. I have not tested this BB as it does not sound like a formula that I would use.
I am a firm believer in highlighters, but only on places I choose! Hehe I cannot rock that gleaming look as I have really oily skin near the T zone.
4. Etude House My Castle Hand Cream 30ml, RRP $7
This is probably the loveliest thing from the box, and I wanted one of these hand creams before it was unboxed. Unfortunately the disappointment comes when I saw it. I did not know what I was expecting but I wasn’t impressed by a plastic house-shaped carton with hand cream. I have received the option “Forever Rose”. The cream itself is actually really nice and moisturising on the hands. I am not so keen on this “Rose” scent. But I like the fact it contains Shea Butter and organic herbs.
5. Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City 10ml, RRP $30
This little guy is very pricy! I cannot believe it, but I am only just discovering the loveliness of a CC cream recently! I have always been BB this BB that. Looking forward to trying this out and compare with the Shara Shara one I received from the Vagabond Youth collab box!
Update on 4th Dec: This CC cream is beautiful on skin, it has next to nothing coverage but it can evens skin tone out very well. Skin looks brightened from 6am (when I first applied it) to 8pm (when I removed it). But I did mix this with the Madeca cream I’ve got from the Vagabond Youth Box. I’m impressed.
6. The Yeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Pack 3g x 4 packs, RRP $6
This pack contains 2 live packs (works like a face masks), 1 peeling gel and 1 pore care pack. I really looking forward to using this item!
Total meme-retail value of this box is $110, the cost of the box is $23 plus shipping. Pretty good value if you like these items!! I can see myself using using 4 out of 6 items 🙂
