Memebox Review – Scent Box #5: Tropical Fruits

Today I have the second of the most recent scent bundle: Tropical Fruits. I liked this box quite a bit more than the Floral box; it’s probably my favorite of the three.

Memebox Review – Scent Box #4: Floral

I missed the first round of scent boxes, so I picked up the next three in a bundle that advertised buy two get one free. They were each $15, so I spent $37 (including shipping) for all three (using a code that gave me free shipping on one of them). That’s probably more than I should have paid for these three boxes, considering what I got, but I do like several items in all of them. First up, the Floral Box.

Memebox Review – Superbox #33: Collagen

Collagen products are marketed for anti-aging; they’re supposed to plump up the skin to smooth out wrinkles and provide an illusion of youth. I read somewhere that collagen doesn’t actually absorb topically, so the effects of these products are short-lived, but I’ve noticed a definite smoothing effect. That could simply be from better hydration of my skin, but I’ll take what I can get.

Memebox Review – Superbox #35: Fermented 2

The story goes that women working in a sake factory noticed that their hands remained smooth and soft through the years from being immersed in the fermenting yeast all the time. That’s likely an apocryphal tale, but new research shows that fermentation does assist in anti-aging products. High-end lines like SK-II use fermented sake, while its mid-price dupe Missha uses fermented beer. I drink a lot of hard cider, so I’m fermenting from the stomach out; why not try it on my face?

I missed out on the first Fermented Box, and was totally bummed when I saw it revealed because I wanted it. So I jumped right on Fermented 2, and I’m so glad I did!

Memebox Review – Special #19: Cleansing Kit

The Asian routine involves serious cleansing as the first step. I double cleanse: first with an oil cleanser to dissolve makeup, then a foaming cleanser to get every trace of crud off my face. I’ve noticed since I started doing this that my skin is much happier with me. If there’s one cardinal rule of beauty, it’s to never go to bed with makeup on! I jumped on the Cleansing Kit, because I’m always going to need cleansers, so I thought it would be a good way to stock up. This box contained 6 full-sized products. All product descriptions below come from the info card included (corrected for grammar and spelling because, well, I can’t restrain myself).

Memebox Review – Superbox #41: My Cute Wishlist

Yesterday I received a bundle from Memebox: My Cute Wishlist Superbox and Cleansing Special Box. First, I’ll review the My Cute Wishlist. It’s sold out, as is the re-release My Cute 2, but check the links occasionally. This box was so popular, I’m sure Memebox will reissue/restock it soon. And one thing that’s never lacking in Korean beauty products is cute packaging!

Memebox Review – Superbox #37: At Home

Today I’ll be reviewing the At Home superbox. A superbox is a little more expensive than a regular themed box, and always contains all fll-sized products. The theme of this box was treatments that take a little more time, so good for when you’re stuck at home on a rainy day (like today happens to be). This box contained 6 full-sized products. All product descriptions below come from the info card included (corrected for grammar and spelling because, well, I can’t restrain myself).
