It’s a sad day in my household as my final Memebox has been delivered. Seeds & Flowers was one of the last international boxes available from Memebox – sadly our favourite K-Beauty supplier has withdrawn from shipping internationally in order to concentrate efforts on their US, Korean and Chinese markets – so this review feels like a farewell. Read on to find out what my first impressions of this box are; has Memebox gone out on a high or left me feeling deflated?
Memebox Seeds and Flowers hails the arrival of Spring with a cacophony of botanical skincare treats. From Rose and Iris, to Moringa Seed and Lavender, this box promises to deliver fresh, glowing skin and protection from Summertime aggressors such as pollen and UV rays.
Enesti Rose Hip Oil Foaming Cleanser (120ml, RRP $15)
This rosehip oil infused deep cleanser lifts away dirt and impurities from the skin. It’s non-drying and forms a rich creamy lather when emulsified with water to deep clean pores, refresh skin, and boost the skin’s natural glow. With continual use you are supposed to notice your skin become brighter, smoother, and younger looking. Rosehip seems to be the anti-aging oil of the moment and I’ve seen it used in many facial oils and moisturisers so i’m excited to try a cleanser that contains this magic ingredient!
Yadah Pure Green Emulsion (120ml, RRP $21)
This is a hydrating emulsion, packed with natural botanicals, that promises to improve circulation and contain powerful antioxidants to protect against skin damage. Chamomile and rosemary soothe and calm the skin, while royal jelly forms a protective hydrating layer over the skin. This has such a lovely light texture and will be perfect for my combination skin. A bonus is the fact that a lot of nasties, including parabens, mineral oils, alcohol and artificial colours, have been eliminated from the formula too which is always music to my ears.
Kskin Bulgarian Rose Moisture & Nutrition Facial Cream (100ml, RRP $8)
This facial cream is formulated with bulgarian rose, a natural source of vitamin c, to help repair fine lines and discoloration as well as providing continuous moisturisation to the skin. Designed for dry skin types this cream is slightly heavier than the emulsion so i’ll probably use this at night or just apply it on my neck and decolletage.
SevenDrops Moringa Light Sunblock (50g, RRP $38)
This is a fast-absorbing and lightweight fluid sunscreen with UVA/UVB sun protection of factor 50. Moringa extract was part of the daily beauty routine of ancient kings and queens due to it’s hydrating and repairing abilities, so if it’s good enough for monarchs it’s good enough for me! It also contains watermelon and aloe vera to soothe and hydrate. This sunscreen has a matte finish and is very lightweight, both definite plus points.
Echoice Perfume Body Mist Dear Iris (120ml, $4)
This is light perfumed body mist made for not only the body, but hair or clothing too. Although its probably my least favourite sort of item to receive in boxes it does have a pleasant light floral scent with notes of citrus mixed in.
PureDerm Lavender Collagen Pulp Mask (RRP $2)
The lavender in this mask is renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties and really helps to soothe tired, irritated skin. Add to the mix the anti-aging properties of Collagen and skin brightening Vitamin E and you have the perfect treatment for maintaining a healthy, glowing completion. I am a real sucker for sheet masks as well as lavender so this is a great product to round off the box with.
Overall Seeds and Flowers is a really nice box; I love the variety and quality of the products inside and they fit the theme of the box well. The value is $88 which is great value considering I paid just $25 and also redeemed some Memepoints! I’m happy that Memebox has gone out on a high for me at least, but I’m certainly sad that these bright pink boxes of K-Beauty loveliness will no longer be landing on my doorstep. I do hope that Memebox will return in the future!
