Hello there, it’s Saturday today and we had couple inches of snow earlier this morning. A chilly morning brought some chilly news in the world of Meme-land.
Shocking BYE BYE News: In the wee hours of the morning, all non-US customers have received the email announcement from Memebox. This email detailed how Memebox will no longer be shipping beauty boxes to anywhere outside of the US, Korea and China. So, I won’t be receiving many Memeboxes apart from the ones scheduled within the next month or so.
This news has given me a kick and I shall be reviewing all the boxes I have, and hopefully they will still be relevant and helpful to some who can buy restock boxes. So you might be seeing a marathon of unboxing posts from me. I shall apologies in advance!
To kick start this UNBOXING PARTY… we have the Princess Edition #4 Little Mermaid!
Little Mermaid box contains some lovely sea-theme related items.
- Pureplus+ Bentonite Cleansing Soap, RRP $12
This soap is enriched with cocoon silk and French Bentonite clay. It works as a cleansing soap or shaving bar. Bentonite clay is packed with over 66 different kinds of natural minerals; it gently removes unnecessary dirt, oil, and dead skin cells. This smells very gentle and quite lovely.
- DD’ell Extra Vitalizing Serum, RRP $42
This lovely serum is formulated with algae extracts and galactomyces (my fav skincare ingredient!) ferments. This serum is nutrition rich, the algae acts as anti-allergic and moisturising agent. It has a dropper for dispensing a milky white serum, the thick consistency absorbs into the skin with ease. The serum smells very delicate.
This serum does not contain paraben, artificial colouring, benzophenone, formaldehyde, paraffin, Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT, preservatives) and triethanolamine (skin irritant).
- Grinif Collagen Aqua Peeling Gel, RRP $20
Peeling gels are one of my favourite skincare items, as it gently removes dead skin without the use of scrub-like particles. My holy grail peeling gel is Ginvera Marvel Gel. I have never used a peeling gel in spray form. TO use this, you spray it onto the face (not damp), and massage in circular motion. It will lifts away your dead skin in little gel pieces. Then, rinse the skin clean!
- dearberry Pure & Popular White Clay Pack, RRP $12
Amazon white clay pack that can deeply cleanses away excess oil and impurities from the skin. The aloe vera extracts would soothe and moisturise the skin.
- Mizon Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream, RRP $19
This is a facial cream consists over 30% of hyaluronic acid. It moisturises, nourish, relieve and firm up dry and dulled complexion. I really like hyaluronic acid skincare products. This cream is performing very well in my skincare regime at the moment. I shall miss it when I run out of it!
- Pure Smile Original Mask Sheet in Pearl, RRP $1
I’ve received the pearl version. Pearl powder is often used in skincare to brighten and moisturises the skin.
The total meme-retail value of $106, the cost of the box was $29 plus shipping. I am using the serum, the Suboon cream and the mask (used!).
Next in line for the UNBOXING PARTY! We have “Dry & Sensitive Skin” box!
I am unsure why I ordered this box as I do not have dry and sensitive skin… I do get dry patches during the winter usually. But luckily, I am suffering very little this year (fingers crossed).
- Zamian Trouble Skin Handmade Soap Ac’xxii 100g, RRP$18
When I first opened the box, it smelled of this soap. PRETTY STRONG!
This is a handmade soap for sensitive skins. It is a natural blend of tea tree oil, lavender oil and manuka honey, which helps treat blemishes and reveal skin’s natural glow.
- TheYeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All in One Serum 100ml, RRP $20
Another Hallabong serum! Hallabong is a special type of orange that are grown only in Jeju Island in Korea. This serum also contains organic kiwi, broccoli, and aloe vera. This is a light serum that suits most skin types. It smells amazing, orange citrus scent and fruit cocktail!
- Pedison Nutritive Infusion Cream 120ml, RRP $29
Body cream for dry and sensitive skin, it contains 0% preservatives and only non- comedogenic ingredients, which means this cream will moisturise without clogging any pores. I am happy to receive this body cream!
- ANACIS Triactive Dermatis Intensive Cream 20ml, RRP $12
This is a very gentle cream for soothing irritated skin. It is enriched with 27 natural extracts, such as green tea, mandarin and walnut. This formula is suitable for use by pregnant ladies as well as babies.

This is a very soothing mist, it contains aloe vera, verbena (reduce redness in skin), red ginseng and camellia oil. This is easily absorbed into the skin, works fast to revitalise dry skin on the body.
- Pureplus+ Lip Treatment in Honey Bee 10g, RRP $9
This lip treatment is FAB, it contains nutrients like snail mucus extracts, shea butter, grape seed oil, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E for protecting lips. My lips are sensitive to lip products, I use this as a lip treatment as and when they feel slightly dry and chapped. This is a great find for me.
This lip treatment is a thick, semi-opaque balmy gel. It leaves a cooling feeling on the lips once applied.
The total meme-retail value of $110, the cost of the box was $29 plus shipping.
Not my favourite box, maybeI should only buy “oily boxes” hehehe!
Okie, thank you for reading and I just cannot believe the bye-bye news. Memebox might come back serving internationally, but this is not promised unfortunately.
