Hello there! I’m operating on a “last in first out” with these box reviews at the moment!
This is a new comer (first box launch for Memebox in 2015), only just launched on 7th January and received within 2 business weeks. This box has a clear theme and purpose, Night Care. All about night care for the skin. I like this kind of boxes!
But do we like the contents?
1. Heart Face Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack 100ml, RRP $14
First of all, this product is listed on the box info card for $14 but it is being retailed at $42 on memeshop (but currently on offer for $12 each? I am so confused!
This masks is formulated with 100% concentrated ferments from galactomyces (yeasts) and natural herbal complex, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera.
This is THE reason why I purchased this box. I came across this sleeping mask from a k-beauty sales on Facebook. Plus it was highly recommended to me by a fellow k-beauty group member.
Once I have tried this, I instantly understand what the lady is raving about. This mask has a thick gel cream consistency, it has a faint scent that I actually quite like 🙂
It works well for my oily combination skin if I do not apply too much product.
After using the mask, my skin would look and feel moisturised and plump. I have that feeling my skin is comfortable and content, like I have had a long holiday and had been sleeping for 10 hours a day everyday. IYKWIM.
I’ve tried many sleeping masks and sheet masks. I seldom stick to a product or a brand at all 😉 Now I’m contemplating on whether I should get backup of this while it’s on offer. Buy 2 for $20.
2. MYPU; Black Pearl & Gold Velvet Gel Eye Patch 30 pairs, RRP $30
Hydro Gel Eye patches is still a new concept to me. I’ve only tried about 3 different brands so far. My favourite is the ones made by Keyskin (my review on the gold eye patches).
This black pearl version is shaped differently, like big tadpoles. They cover a bigger surface area than the Keyskin ones. I like the fact we do not have redundant spot patches (circles off cuts).
This MYPU patches are made similarly to Keyskin. This one is formulated with collagen, hyaluronic acid, black pearl extracts and other moisture delivering ingredients. These patches are also slightly thicker than the Keyskin ones.
I’ve tested this twice now. These patches are extremely slippery on the face because there is so much essence. I had essence running down my face from the patches on both occasions. It took around 7 to 10 minutes for the patches to settle onto my skin. So I’ve learned not to move about too much. After 20 to 30 mins, these patches are pretty much dry/slight damp. It felt like my skin had absorbed it all!
The result is good, leaving my under-eye area hydrated and fine lines are looking less visible. These patches can also be used on your laughter lines. I will probably try it tonight 🙂
Ps. My tub of eye patches leaked into the box. It was not disastrous but just hoping it doesn’t affect the quality and effectiveness of the product.
3. AVEC MOI Mask 4 Set 8g + 16g + 16g + 4.5g, RRP $33
There are four one-use masks in this box. I can understand why some people are upset by this. Generally, we get full sized items, not one-use items.
But I am happy to receive these, as I have not tried a *pony tail* mask nor a nail pack! Very interesting!
a) Pony Tail Silky Treatment Pack 8g
This is a rinse-out conditioner type of hair mask. This contains collagen, bean protein, silk protein, argan oil, olive oil, royal jelly and shea butter.
I am a regular user with Moroccan oil, so I will see how this works in place of hair oils.
To use, apply the mask to freshly washed hair, and leave for up to 30 mins.
b) Shea Butter Special Care Foot Mask 16g
I am in need of a good foot mask, this could be used after a foot peel. This mask is enriched with shea butter, macadamia oil and vitamin E to soften dry and calloused skin on the foot.
Soak clean feet in the foot mask for 15 to 20 mins. Gently wipe off excess and massage the rest into the feet.
c) Camellia Special Care Hand Mask 16g
I plan to gift this to my mum, yup I am definitely going to do that. I will report back if she likes it or not! This sounds like a lovely mask!
This mask contains a nourishing blend of camellia extracts, collagen, vitamin E and argan oil. It deeply moisturise dry, rough hands and leaving them softer.
Wash and clean hands before wearing each glove on the hands. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes before wiping off excess and massage the rest into the hands.
d) Intensive Nail Pack 4.5g
A first for me! I’ve never used nail masks before. For some blogger who does regular NOTD posts. This is quite shocking, isn’t it? 😛
This nail mask pack is enriched with cacao seed butter, milk protein, hydrolyzed bean protein, hydrolyzed collagen, honey and macadamia oil to nourish and moisturise your nails and cuticles.
Now to think of it, moisturise in nails will make nail cracks and chipped. I will double think before using now. As I’ve been advised to use oil on cuticles to ensure healthy and strong nails.
It looks pretty fiddly as I have to wear 10 little nail masks individually fit 15 to 29 minutes.
4. D’RAN Wonder Lifting Eye Cream 25g, RRP $35
This eye cream has been formulated with beta glucan, macadamia seed oil, jojoba seed oil, argan oil and EGF.
It aims to protect and moisturise the delicate under-eye areas. I’ve just started using the D’RAN eye cream from the Snow White box. It is not a super eye cream, it moisturises but does nothing much else for me.
5. TOSOWOONG Natural Pure Snail Essence 60ml, RRP $24
I love the bee venom toner from the same brand and same line. I received it from the Anniversary Box and I love it so much that I’ve bought a backup. I do have high hopes for this.
There’s 20% of pure snail mucin filtrates and 40% of poor fresh birch tree leaf water. It moisturises and firms up dry skin, helps with combating acne and also balances skin moisturise level.
I’m on Benton essence at the moment but I think this will work well for me. I love snail skincare, please don’t judge!
6. Switch Patch Elephant 3-Step! Black Head Nose Pack 7g, RRP $3
This is a 3-step nose pack. I’m used to using nose strips but these 3-step packs are for deep cleaning your pores and also tightening.
Official description on HOW to use:
Place the step 1 sheet over clean nose and remove after 15~20 minutes. Wet nose with a little bit of water and place the step 2 sheet over. Remove after 10~15 minutes. Then again place the step 3 sheet over nose and remove after 5~10 minutes.
I am happy with this box 🙂 The total meme-retail value of the box is $139 and the cost of the box was $29 plus shipping. Very good value, as I am loving my sleeping mask, using the eye patches and I have spare masks to gift away too 🙂
Thank you for reading, it’s Thursday, yay!
