Memebox Superbox #75 City Girl

It’s another glorious day out here in Portland, Oregon! I have just received Superbox #75 City Girl box as well as two other boxes that will have their own respective posts. I was a little let down by half of the Skin Food and the Face Shop box last week. But as long as I like at least 3 products from each box…I feel good about a box. Hopefully these new boxes restores the deep love I have for Memebox!

So lets jump into this one. The contents of Superbox #75 City Girl are as follows:

 

1. Migabee Verbana Cream 50ml ($29…I couldn’t find it online for this price. The lowest price I found was $31.00)

First thoughts: I really dig the logo. Packaging is always very important to me and part of that is a memorable logo. This one is cute. And hey! “Migabee’s limited Verbana line helps to heal mental & physical exhaustion, to give energy at the same time, and to have smooth and moisten skin.” Where was this during my midterms? I was definitely exhausted then! I can’t pinpoint it’s scent. I mean it clearly has one…and I know I’ve smelled it before but I just can’t put my tongue on it (or should I say my nose…haha.. that was it for my corny joke of the week).

How To Use: Apply evenly over skin both day and night.

2. Mizon Oh! Shy Gorgeous On Liquid Cheek 8ml ($16…found for 13.81 online)

First Thoughts: Ahhh Mizon! This item was spoiled for us on the Memebox Facebook page and instantly this boxes “Wow” factor went up for me. I love love love Mizon! It comes in a cute glass bottle type thing and the applicator is basically the same as a nail polish brush. No lie, I instinctively wanted to apply it on my nails. It is a nice color, but I did notice that in the 3 time I have opened it today, I keep making a mess on both my hands as well as the bottle. But that might just be a me problem.

How to Use: Apply the liquid brush alone or mixed with a foundation or a shimmering booster in a 1:2 ratio. It can also be applied on lips as a lip stain.

3. Shara Shara Dew Veil Primer Balm 25g ($13…found for $16.00 online)

First Thoughts: Cute. I can’t point out a specific smell on this one until it’s actually applied. When on my face…it smells faintly (really faint though like it’s not at all off putting) like sunscreen. It almost looks like a kids lotion.

How to Use: Apply the primer at the very first stage of base makeup to smooth and prep skin it can also be utilized for a fix-up by mixing it in with foundation or BB cream.

4.  Original raw Multi Pigment- I am Designer 10g X 3 ($42)

First Thoughts: This stuff goes on like icing on a cake. I’m not trying to make a cute little “oh it goes on super easy” metaphor. It really reminds me of cake icing that you buy in a tube. The pink is very pink. The orange is very orange. The beige is beige. A little goes a loooooong way here as it is very pigmented. But according to the info card, this seems like an all in one makeup set. Apparently this stuff does everything and can go anywhere. Rather than applying with fingertips, I would use a brush as it left my fingers pretty friggin’ pink.  

How to Use: Shake well before application. Squeeze a small amount of the formula and apply to lips, cheeks, or eyes, under or over makeup using a brush or fingertips. Layer under powder blushes, bronzers, lip stain, and lip glosses for added intensity. Mix and match the 3 shades to your liking.

5. Migabee Pure Berry Oil Soap Honey 310ml ($29…found online for $32.87)

First Thoughts: Honey. I missed out on the honey boxes so I have been crossing my fingers that a honey based product would come my way. I don’t know if it’s the whole BEE honey thing but the Migabee logo reminds me of the Burt’s Bees logo.

How to Use: Lather the oil cleanser enough to create abundant foam and massage into face, hair, and body. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

 

Final Thoughts: All around good box. There wasn’t anything that felt like it brought the value of the box down. I am very happy about the Migabee Oil Soap, the Verbana Cream, and the Mizon tint. Yup, that’s three. This box is a success in my book.

The box cost: $23.00.

Value according to Memebox: $129.00.

Value according to my prices: $132.55

Memebox Superbox #84 Skinfood Box

Hopefully, this box goes better than The Face Shop Box. I am totally new to Skinfood products so in all honesty, anything I receive is a plus for me.

So…Let’s get done to business. The contents of Memebox Superbox #84 Skinfood Box are:

1.  Facial Water Vita-C (Cream) 75g ($13)

First thoughts: ohhhh…Glass. I’m not good with glass, but this looks nice and sturdy. It smells delicious. Seriously, smells like magic. I really like this. Skinfood is doing really well by me so far. So it can be used as a hydration pack by using more product on the skin and needs to refrigerated for best results? WHAT?!?!? I might need to invest in a small fridge for my skinfood. 

How To Use: Apply directly to clean face and let it absorb.

2. Black Sugar Mask Wash Off 100g ($9)

First Thoughts: Thank goodness it smells better than it looks, because frankly it loos really gross. I LOVE masks so I gladly welcome the black sugar mask wash off into my home.

How to Use: Spread formula evenly over wet face after cleansing and gently massage into skin. Rinse off after 10-15 minutes.

3. Egg White Pore Meringue Foam 200ml ($13)

First Thoughts: OMG! What what? I don’t know how to feel about this. I have this thing with egg where I don’t actually enjoy them on my face. Skinfood…keep it coming because so far so good!

How to Use: Lather well and gently massage onto face. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

4.  Tomato Whitening Toner 180ml ($17)

First Thoughts: Yes! I need a new toner. Now, I don’t care to much for the whitening aspect of this toner, but hey, it fits in with my skincare routine. This isn’t to far off from the Western products that I already use (chock full of tomato-ey goodness). So this is definitely going to be used. 

How to Use: Apply with a coton pad or directly with your hands onto clean face and pat it in for full absorbance.

5. Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake 4g ($5)

First Thoughts: Good, Good. I always feel like my eyebrows get a little left out in my routine. Another definite use.

How to Use: Use the included brow brush to fill in your arches.

 

LOVED this box. Skinfood has found a new lifelong fan in me. The box was $29.00 and the value of it was $76.00 I was regretting getting the Face Shop box and I wouldn’t have gotten the skinfood box alone so I am really happy that this box made me happy enough to have gotten the FS box.

Memebox Superbox #82 The Face Shop

The day has arrived. I received The Face Shop Superbox. If you recall, this would be the second The Face Shop Superbox that Memebox has pumped out. Unfortunately, the first box wasn’t the big hit that Memebox was expecting it to be. And to be a little honest I was underwhelmed by this box as a whole. That’s not to say that I didn’t like it…it’s just that I prefer the first box over this one

With out further ado here’s the Memebox Superbox #82 The Face Shop Box:

1.  Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Cream 50 ml ($9)

First thoughts: nice little cream. The packaging is a little heavy as it’s made out of glass. Initially, I thought it smelled like bananas…clearly something was wrong with my nose. Now I sense a nice floral scent…maybe. Not sure. Does keep my hands hydrated for the time being. Will definitely keep.

How To Use: Apply directly to clean face at the last stage of skincare routine.

2. Lovely Me:ex Pastel Cushion Blusher 5 g ($7)

First Thoughts: Hmm… No. 5 was in the last TFS box…I am SOOOO relieved I didn’t get the same shade. I would have been seriously peeved as I still have A LOT of blush left in that one. I got No.3 Plum Cushion. It’s a nice shade, I just don’t think it’ll work with my skin tone. Like the product before, cute packaging. probably won’t use it as often as I use the Peach Cushion. Might use as a stocking stuffer. Who knows>

How to Use: Apply along cheekbones with a light touch, using the included puff.

3. Lovely Me:ex Mini Pet Hand Cream 30 ml ($6)

First Thoughts: OMG!! SOOOO cute. I don’t know what my mini pet is. It’s No. 4 Fruity Floral. It might be a little bear. Either way, I am carrying this in my bag everywhere I go. It’s not a terribly strong scent, but it does linger on your hands for some time after applying. Super awesome!

How to Use: Apply directly to hands as often as needed.

4.  Lovely Me:ex Dessert Lip Balm 6g ($8)

First Thoughts: *sigh* Why?!?! I love this too much! BUT! I have toooo many lip products. Like seriously too many. That won’t stop me from using this though, I loved the lip tint from the first TFS box and have bought the lip tint twice to replace the old one. Hopefully, this product impresses me just as much. ANNND it comes with the cutest little applicator.

How to Use: Apply directly to lips, using the mini spatula.

5. Lovely Me:ex You&Eyes 05 Sand Brown 1.6g ($5)

First Thoughts: Crap. I already have this from the first box. On top of that…I don’t use it. It is WAYYYY to shimmery. I don’t have any events where this much shimmer would be appropriate. Major Dud!

How to Use: Use shadow brush or a finger to apply to lids.

6. Milk Plus Calming Moist Body Lotion 300ml ($8)

First Thoughts: I think I have the wrong product. my bottle says cream shower… which frankly doesn’t sound all that appealing. And I’m not a fan of milk so I’ll use this…sparingly…until I get sick of it.

How to Use: Towel-dry after a shower and generously apply the body lotion all over your body, gently massaging it in for full absorbance.  

 

 

My biggest problem with this box was the fact that all of these items were under 10 dollars. This box definitely let me down in the same way that first The Face Shop box did many, many boxes ago, but I think the first flop was still better than this box. The box costs $29.00 plus shipping and handling. The total value of the box (according to memebox) was $43.00. No way near the typical for memeboxes.

Influenster #DLVoxBox

voxbox-blogimage-popup2First and foremost….It has been forever since I’ve been on here. There was some family emergencies I had to take care of and I was out of the country for a month and a half. It has just been very, very hectic. But I’m back with a new Influenster VoxBox, the Deans List VoxBox. I suppose this one went out to college/university students, which would explain why I was invited to receive it. Whatever the case may be, I was looking forward to this one. My first VoxBox (Viva box) left me wanting more, the second one (Vow VoxBox) was ah-maze-ing, and I had over the top expectations for this one. Keep in mind that influenster sends these products to me for free, but that in no way will sway my opinion of said products.

Lessgo!

bites_airheads1. Airheads Bites (.87-1.29)

It seems a little weird that they would throw this into the box. I’ve never really been a fan of airheads though. The mystery flavor was never the one I was hoping for (blue raspberry) and it was such a hassle to eat. Luckily, I received the fruit ones so these bite size pieces may change my opinion of Airheads though. I have yet to eat them, I’m planning on sharing with my younger siblings. And either way, I don’t want to spoil my dinner!

Pilot-FriXion-Clicker-Assorted-Fine-Point-Erasable-Gel-Rollerball-Pens-Pack-of-7-f7cd8113-14bf-4920-b541-c64f0220c4f7_3202. Pilot FriXion Clicker (5.75/ 2 pack)

I had a mini heart attack when I first tried to use ’em. The clicker isn’t on the top, it’s the clip that retracts the point. It took me a good while to figure that out. It was only a little embarrassing, but when I figured it out, I felt like nothing could stop me. These aren’t my favorite pens. I have a scary love for Pilot G-2 Pens. I always have two in my purse and like fifty scattered around my room. I mean, these aren’t terrible, the only problem I have with the pen is that the writing could be a little smoother. It erases like a dream though, I used to use erasable pens in middle school (yeah, I was one of those kids), but it never erased properly, it always left smudges on my papers. So, all-in-all, these pens are nice.

3. SinfulColors No Text Red (1.99)

I have used this brand before, It’s a good alternative to the more expensive brands. This color though, came with a little pamphlet thing spreading awareness of the hazards of texting and driving. I think it’s awesome! The pamphlet suggests painting your thumb in this shade to remind you not to text/drive and that’s exactly what I did. Join the movement!

prod_detail_large_144_Looks_so_nat_KFL01_large_NEW4. Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes

I have never used false lashes. The whole aspect of it scares me. Like, what if I accidentally glue my eyelids shut. What then? I personally have no use for them, so I’ll give them to my mom.

  Softlips-Cube-025. Softlips Cube (3.49)

These, these I like. I was just at Target and saw these and seriously considered buying all three. It is a very good thing I refrained though. Not that they are terrible or anything…They’re just so tiny. I can’t help but to compare these to EOS products and just the fact that EOS is bigger for about the same price puts them ahead. Either way, Softlips Cube does provide with nice coverage, my lips feel crazy moist after applying like an hour ago. So in that sense this might last me a good while, I won’t need to constantly reapply. I believe you get sent one of three flavors: Pomegranate Blueberry, Fresh Mint, or Vanilla Bean. I received Pomegranate Blueberry.

index6. Playtex Sport Fresh Balance (3.99)

I don’t really know what to say. I can’t exactly try it out right away. Give me like 2 weeks. This isn’t a new brand for me though, so I now that Playtex has always left me happy in the past.

485bb2596f9b332f0498be09b3955d047. Luden’s NEW Watermelon and Blue Raspberry Throat Drops (3.99)

These are BRAND NEW. That’s pretty cool in my opinion. I know that not everybody got the drops. Some people received COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Liquid Foundation (6.99-8.99). I am SOOOOOO happy I got these instead. Foundation is always hard to send out because it almost never matches my shade. Anyway, I can’t really test these out, I don’t have a cough. I did try one out (I received the Watermelon drops) and it was pretty good. Tasted like watermelon flavored Jolly Ranchers. Yummy!

That’s all the products I got…and don’t forget I got all this stuff for free from Influenster.

Memebox Scentbox #1 Rose

I almost regretted buying these scentboxes. I bought 2, the rose and the grapefruit  scent and it wasn’t until a week ago that I thought, “hey, what if they suck?” I rarely get stuck with a product that I have absolutely no use for. Whether I gift it or keep it, I have a use for it. But with the scent boxes, I had NO idea what was coming.  I am standing tall in defense of memebox on these boxes though because I really really really like these boxes.

I may not work in an office, but that in no way stopped me from jumping on board to make sure this box would be mine.

Memebox #Hair and Body 2 Unboxing

It seems that buying 2 memeboxes being released on the same day has been beneficial for me because….I got more boxes today! The first Hair and Body box was a huge hit with me. It may even be my favorite box from memebox. This box was great…5/6 products were full size, and it smells amazing. Something in my box spilled just a wee bit (the body net 7 days project) so that coupled with the Spa Vita products made my box a field of berries! I’ll do a more in depth review on everything when I get a chance to try everything out, but until then, I’ll just get down to business. Here are the included products:

 

Kocostar Nail-051. Kocostar Foot Therapy 40ml 1ea ($9)

Ever heard of foot therapy? It basically looks like a pair of translucent socks that you wear and for the next days dead skins will gradually peel off from your feet and voila- the softest and smoothest feet you’e always longed for!

How To Use: Wear the foot peeling pack on both feet after cleansing and secure it with attached adhesive tape by placing it around the ankle. Soak your feet in the gel for around 1.5 hours then wash it off gently with soap. Dead skin will start to peel off within the next 3-4 days and all would have shed withing a week.

hol_too2. Label Young Shocking Holjjuki 100ml ($21)

Enriched with natural ingredients such as green tea extracts and algae extracts, it is gentle to even the most sensitive skin and absorbs smoothly into your skin without being sticky or irritant.

How to Use: Apply the cream on any part of your body in need of some slimming. However, be careful not to apply it in sensitive areas like around your eyes and do not apply too much in one spot because it will result in redness from excess thermal effect.

Influenster #VowVoxBox

voxbox-blogimage-popup2Today I received my Influenster Vow VoxBox (try saying that 10 times fast). Anyway this is my second box from inluenster and I wasn’t terribly pleased with the first box I received (Viva Voxbox) so I was really excited to see if the contents of this box would be more to my liking.

The informational card says the box is “[f]or the brides, bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-bride, wedding guests, and wedding crashers of Influenster Nation!” Keep in mind that influenster sends these products to me for free, but that in no way will sway my opinion of said products.

So enough lollygagging. These are the products I received:

74170399121. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure ($7.99)

The color in the box was #360 Barracuda. It’s a very cute shade of blue, which fits in with the “something blue” tradition in weddings. While the color is very cute in the bottle, you need to apply multiple coats of the polish for it to look good. This is a problem I have experienced with other light colored polishes from this brand. I haven’t had a problem with dark shades from Sally Hansen, so I do like the polish it just takes an extra amount of work to get a perfect polish. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes always last me a good 2 weeks before the polish starts to chip so I do say that it is well worth it. And as an added plus, polishes from this line tend to dry quicker than the more expensive brands that I use.

 

Olay Regnerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream2. Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream ($30.99)

There isn’t much I can say about this right now. The information card says that it will fade the look of dark spots in 8 weeks. I personally don’t have dark spots, so I will be having my mother test this product out for me. She has always been looking for the next big thing to get rid of her dark spots so if this’ll do it, then you have a lifelong costumer out of me.

 

3003. Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream ($1.49/$2.19)

I haven’t used shaving cream in a while, and I just shaved my legs this morning so I hold off on shaving for a little to test this shaving cream. I have used this brand in the past and it was my go-to cheap shaving cream. I don’t know if every box came with the same scent, but I received Raspberry Mist and it smells DIVINE.

 

ECT-01231-24. EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge ($5.99)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this brand. I have several makeup brushes from this brand and they are super cute. This sponge  looks a lot like a Styrofoam ball upon first opening. It was pretty rough during the first and second use, but it did soften up considerably during the third use, so that was a pleasant surprise. I did feel like my skin felt a little smoother after washing up with this sponge as opposed to the one I usually use. This brand rarely lets me down, so it wasn’t much of a surprise. In addition, the sponge is pretty cheap compared to older sponges I currently have at hand. This product was an easy win for me.

 

index5. Tide to Go (3/$7.99)

These little sticks of magic have been a must have in my purse for the last 2 years. I work in the food industry with older residents at a retirement community so whether it’s them spilling food on me, or my clutzy hands spasms some coffee on my shirt, these little buggers have saved me plenty of times.

 

6. Riley & Grey

This box also came with a voucher for 50% off a wedding website created by Riley & Grey. I personally will not be using this, but I have several friends getting married in the coming months so hopefully one of them is willing to give this a go.

Just to reiterate I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I thought this was a bang up box. I only wished I had received this box before the Viva box. But oh well.

Memebox Superbox #16 Hair Box

In addition to receiving the Gangnam Style Superbox, which LOVED, I also got the Hair Super Box. I had really high hopes for this one…unfortunately it didn’t live up to my expectations.Don’t get me wrong, I still liked the box, it just felt…I don’t know…incomplete. Like it was missing a certain item to make it feel “whole”.

With out further ado here’s the Memebox Superbox #16 Hair Box:

1. Saerom Cosmetics RNA-3 Hair Repair Keratin Water 30ml ($6)

This damage care hair treatment was created by a famous Korean hair designer who believed beautiful, healthy hair can only be maintained through continuous home treatments. Enriched with fermented extracts from natural grains and proteins, its replenishing properties will effectively nourish and strengthen your damaged hair.

How To Use: This hair treatment is definitely a one-of-a-kind in that there’s no need to rinse it off; you can simply spray the product on after blow-drying your hair.

2. Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Ampoule 24ml ($15)

Boutique Bebe is a brand which promotes against excessively expensive hair treatment containing unnatural, harmful ingredients. Thus, they take great pride in this Hair Salon Ampoule made from various natural sources of protein and nutrition- bean flour, olive oil, red bean, plant roots, cnidium, and Korean honey locust.

How to Use: Apply on dry hair with your hands, making sure to spread it evenly throughout. It can also be used overnight fir intensive care. If you want a full course salon clinic, apply the hair ampoule generously after towel-drying your hair. Then, apply another layer of treatment on top and let it rest for 20 minutes before rinsing it all off. Finish with a hair essence for maximum results.

3. Esthetic House CP-1 Ceramide Treatment Protein Repair System 25 ml ($19) Found for $4.95

This intensive protein hair clinic is in the form of a syringe, making it very sanitary and easy to use. It works to deliver deep nourishment and healthier luster to your dry, damaged hair. Depending on your hair length, it can be used 1-3 times. 

How to Use: Rinse off thoroughly and towel-dry before applying the product. Take an adequate amount and evenly apply it throughout your hair and rinse of after 5-10 minutes.

4. Green Tree Baobab Oil 125ml ($12)

Baobab trees are well-acknowledged moisture tanks, capable of surviving in the driest areas in the world. Plus, the baobab oil is packed full of omega 3, 6, 9 and vitamins A, C, D, E, with its vitamin C concentration doubling that of an orange.

My biggest problem with this box was the fact that many of these items were under 50ml. The only “big” item we received from this box was the “Green Tree Baobab Oil”. While this box definitely let me down in the same way that The Face Shop box did many, many boxes ago, with memebox it’s always a gamble. Sometimes the products are almost heaven sent in the pretty little pink boxes…other times, you have no idea what to do with all the repetitive products. But at 29.00, a little cheaper than the average Superbox, I’m fine with it.

Memebox Superbox #17 Gangnam Style Box

p.txt

Soooo, Yesterday I got a package from the friendly DHL man. Seriously though, he was delivering memeboxes for me non-stop last month so I feel like I know him enough to invite him to a family get together. I received the Gangnam Style and the Hair Super boxes. Both really great in my opinion, but right now I’ll focus mainly on the Gangnam Style Super Box.

I don’t know how many people have seen Psy’s “Oppa Gangnam Style” but with its 2,017,657,223 views on YouTube I can assume that it’s a lot of people. Thanks to Psy’s hit song, the world has been rapidly opening their arms and embracing the magic that is Kpop. In honor of OGS Memebox released their Gangnam Style Superbox to help achieve the looks of “baby-faced Gangnam girls with their big, round eyes, v-line chins, straight-lined eyebrows, and glowing skin”. So here are the products that were included:
