Back in December the Korean beauty experts Memebox launched a 12 days of Christmas promotion, which saw them reveal exclusive daily offers over on their Facebook and Instagram pages, and to kick off the series they released two Christmas/Holiday boxes; a skincare focused box and a makeup box. Due to business restructuring there had been quite a drought on new Memeboxes so these boxes had been eagerly awaited and were snapped up super-fast by K-Beauty fans, and of course I had to get in on the action, grabbing the skincare box!
We were promised that the Memebox Christmas Collection #1 Stress-Free Holidays would be “a box full of easy skincare and body essentials to help keep holiday tension from taking over” that would help to “fight skin and body blemishes and flaws that follow stress” and “maintain your beauty all season long”. So did Memebox deliver? Lets find out as I delve into the box!
Recipe By Nature Ice Cream Swing Gloss 01 Very Lovely (6g, RRP $6)
This lip gloss melts onto lips, leaving them moist and supple, yet non-sticky. The formula, enriched with jojoba seed oil, argan oil and grape seed oil, is sweetly scented with berries and delivers rich moisture and nutrition to dry, chapped lips. I love the cute design of the packaging, although it’s rather bulky, and the fact you can attach it to your keychain.
Angel’s Black Head Eraser Coconut 97% (100g, $12) This is a soap-free cleansing bar made from 97% pure coconut extracts and carbonated hot spring water. 100% natural it is specifically formulated to help treat acne, blemishes, blackheads and wrinkles, and has a pH level of 5.5, which is compatible to your skin. This is made by Bonkorea although you may notice that the design of the packaging is a dead ringer for Kiehls!
Dipodeur Dress Perfume in 24 Lime & Mandarin (150 ml, $19)
This is a “dress perfume” that combines a fresh soap scent with phytonicide water and then adds the other fragrances to make a unique blend. This is a perfume for your clothes and linen, but may be used as a body mist. I recieved Lime & Mandarin which is a lovely zesty fragrance, I’ll definitely use this for freshening up my soft furnishings!
DD’ell Moisture Facial Mask 04 Gold Kiwi (23g, $7) This sheet mask is made with mineral-rich deep ocean water and vitamin rich Gold Kiwi extract, which helps soothe, detoxify and even out the skin tone. The Vitamin C contained within Gold Kiwi is known to reduce hyper-pigmentation and dark spots caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
Neogen Neoday Don’t Cry, Armpits Deodorant Perfumed Stick (15g, $17)
The Eucalyptus in this deodorant stick is excellent as an antibacterial ingredient, and both eucalyptus and peppermint have refreshing and cooling properties. Added to the mix is Alaskan glacial water (binghasu), which is a natural moisturiser and will keep your skin hydrated and conditioned. This deodorant has a non-sticky formula and feels very fresh. The small size makes it perfect for travel or popping in my gym bag.
Shara Shara Gold Label Repescargo Cream (50 ml, $41) This cream contains a whopping 70% snail mucus extract, which helps to nourish, brighten and repair damaged skin, but also gold, pearl powder, hyaluronic acid and glucosamine which help to deliver moisture. Hypo-allergenic and with a natural preservative system of Zanthoxylum Piperitum (Sichuan Pepper) Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana (Pasqueflower) Extract and Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract it is suitable for the most sensitive of skins and its soft, light formula leaves the skin feeling hydrated and comfortable
I think this is a solid box, which contains a good variety of products and for a total of $29.99 the box has a value of $102, so pretty good!
