Hello there! It is 23rd Dec, are you ready for X’mas? Here’s an unboxing post on the much loved but not hyped up Pumpkin Pie Cosmetics box!
I have ordered the Meme Anniversary box with this Pumpkin pie box in a bundle. Since Memebox has been biggin’ up the Anniversary box so much, for it being the best box ever. I was not too bothered with Pumpkin Pie Box. HOW WRONG CAN I BE? This box contains some pretty impressive lovely items! Read on 😉
Dearberry – Coco’s Secret Recipe Pumpkin 100ml, RRP $16
AH HA! The only pumpkin related product in the box :p This wash off pack (mask) has the cute packaging and a talc powder scent (is my scent failing me… I was expecting a pumpkin smell.. not that Pumpkins smell of much… )
The texture of this mask is very creamy and smooth, you will only need a thin layer. So this 100ml tub will last quite a while! It helps to clarifies and brightens complexion. I really enjoy using this mask, and I’m interested in checking out other variations from the same range. There are 5 options in total including our Pumpkin, Milk, Yam, Potato and Honey. These are selling for around £19 or $29.99 on eBay, I haven’t found these on TesterKorea, Beauty Net Korea or Korea Depart yet!
Instructions for use: Use 2-3 times a week, apply over clean and dry face avoiding the eyes and mouth area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and wash it off with warm water.
Insobeau – Multi Complex V-Line Repair Sleeping Mask 80ml, RRP $42
This pretty looking tub contains a sleeping mask that has a rather strong scent. I can’t describe it; it is just a very normal sheet mask smell! The texture of this sleeping mask is like steamed egg/panna cotta? , i.e. very smooth, and light.
This mask contains a blend of adenosine, peptide, argan oil, collagen, albutin, and ceramide. It aims to re-hydrate and brightens the skin.
Unfortunately, this sleeping mask has an expiration date of June 2015, so I have to use this up within 6 months! Mission impossible as I have another 3 on the go right now.
Enesti Shea Butter Hand Cream Lemon & Verbena 50g, RRP $5
Enesti does nice hand creams, and I believe Memebox loves Enesti too. I have got 3 Enesti hand creams already. I love its scents and the formula, it is nourishing without being greasy. The cream sinks into your hands and give you lasting moisture.
This Lemon & Verbena version smells refreshing and lovely to use!
Tonymoly Gold Black Sugar Mask 100ml, RRP $7
This is a wash off mask formulated with black sugar, gold (?) and honey extracts. It provides effective facial exfoliation. I have used the Skin Food version and I do find Skin Food’s version is tiny bit too rough on the skin. The sugar particles are on the larger size. I will continue to use this and report back how the two compares.
Enesti Day to Day Rice & Milk Foam Cleansing 160g, RRP $14
I thought I had a repeat when I saw this… the Memebox “Empties” also contain a Rice & Milk Foaming Cleanser by Enesti. You can argue that they are different since the size is different, the packaging is different :p
The total meme-retail value of this box is $84, the cost of the box was $23 plus shipping.
Okie, to me this is a nice box. A heck-load better than the Anniversary box, that teaches me not to have high expectations. No expectations means no disappointment in this case 😛 Every item in this box is useable, just that I have to use the Isobeau sleeping mask a lot more and a lot quicker!
1st Anniversary Box (Memebox is over 1 year old!)
Memebox has promised us the BEST BOX EVER, a box that’s bursting with highest quality products, the most talked and most wanted K-Beauty buys. Read on to find out more…
Tosowong Bee AC Control Toner 100ml, RRP $15
It is randomly selected from lotion or toner mist. I have received the toner mist and couldn’t be more glad! Bee venom creams don’t seem to do much for me, but a toner mist I can make more use of :o)
The toner smells sweet like honey, it feels light and moisturising on the skin. Bee venom is known to be good for acne prone skin, it calms and neutralises.
Unni Recipe Makes Your Skin Smooth Firming Pact SPF25 PA+++ #21 Light Beige 12g, RRP $24
I was really happy to find such a good quality BB cushion pact in the box, but quickly lost my excitement when I found out we were sent the same shade, same shade for everyone.. I can’t even trade this for a darker shade :o(
CORRECTION: I should not have called this a cushion, as it is a powder pact!! It is weird, as it memorises the indentation that I made with the cotton bud but it did not crumble. INTERESTING! :p
The pact is in shade #21, I have never been able to get away with using shade #21 in any Korean branded cosmetic items.
Anyhow, the pact promises to give great coverage as well as letting your skin breathe. It is formulated with a blend of galactomyces (fungi family), bifida, lactobasillus ferments and Unni Recipe’s special “Silky Balance Network” [whatever that is].
AHC Whitening Cream SPF35 PA++ 30ml, RRP $38
A very light and easily absorbed whitening cream, I do like this cream as it gives the extra SPF under my normal foundation/BB/CC creams! Very handy, and it smells very light and delicate floral. Love it!
RiRe Cool Dr. Scalp 10ml & Hot Speed Manicure 15ml, RRP $11
These two products are very interesting. These are for hair and scalp! The Dr. Scalp works to cool down your scalp to prevent hair loss and remove impuritires and dead skin cells, resulting in healthier scalp and hair. The Hot Speed manicure cream works to penetrate deep into hair cuticles, delivers nutrition and help create a stronger protein layer to prevent breakage. I am sceptical on Dr. Scalp treatment. I have had scalp issue after using some well-known brand shampoo and it took me months to get back to normal, flake-free state!
RiRe Capsule Mask Pack (Anti-ageing) 75ml, RRP $22
Randomly selected from 3 options; Moisture, Whitening and Anti-Ageing. I received the anti-ageing pack, I think Memebox is trying to tell me something :p To be honest, I would be happy to receive any of the three. The product smells delicate and soothing.
This is a spray format mask, pretty unusual as all my masks are in tubs, tubes, and never had I receive a spray mask! This capsule spray is not a fine-spray; yes it is more like a squirt! This is to be use under or over makeup, but I am unsure I will be using this over makeup, just in case I have non-waterproof mascara on! HAHAHHAA
The total meme-retail value of this box is $110 and the cost of the box was $23 plus shipping.
I would definitely make use of the AHC Whitening cream, Rire capsule pack and the Tosowoong Bee AC Control Toner.
Thanks for reading this double unboxing post! Have a great day.
These two boxes are currently sold out, but feel free to look out for a restock of these boxes! As I yet to see them being restocked, so there are high chances they will pop up on the Memebox page!
