When Sheet Masks

Created by a Korean healthcare specialist, who wanted to bring the high-quality sensitive skin treatments from dermatologist clinics into the home, When face masks are unique sheet masks that utilise advanced bio-cellulose technology.

The all-natural, coconut-derived bio-cellulose sheet is gentle enough to treat burn patients, and can hold fluids up to 100 times its dry weight, which is 10 times more than your average fabric sheet masks, making them ultra hydrating. The bio-cellulose sheet’s superfine, 3-dimensional fibres also enable superior dermal contact for a perfect fit that prevents evaporation and wastage of the serum, locks in moisture and allows the serum’s nutrients to be delivered to the skin.

My Korean-Beauty Journey

I was sorting through my Korean beauty stash recently and it got me reminiscing about the amazing Memeboxes I used to get! It’s been almost a year since Memebox, who branded themselves as the World’s number one Korean beauty store, stopped international shipping to concentrate on their American market and although I always hoped they would start back up again, sadly it hasn’t happened yet!

Korean Beauty has really taken off since then, with lots of Western brands jumping on trends that were started by Korean companies. Foundation cushions and sheet masks are no longer well kept secrets but terms that are familiar to every beauty addict, however Memebox will always have a special place in my heart for reasons I’ll explain below.

Beauteque Head To Toe Bag – Skinfood

When you think of Korean skincare one brand that will spring immediately to mind is Skinfood. With their appealing packaging and a wide variety of products that are pretty consistant in terms of quality and value, it’s little wonder this brand has made waves outside of its home county. Consequently I was so excited when a few months back Beauteque released a Skinfood bag as part of their ‘Head To Toe’ series and I had to grab one. 

The Skinfood Head To Toe bag retailed at $25 plus shipping and contained six products from this well established Korean skincare brand. So let’s delve inside and take a look at the contents!

Beauteque Head To Toe Bag – Aloe

Every month Korean beauty experts Beauteque release a new limited edition bag in their Head-To-Toe series. This is not a subscription, but a one-off purchase, and each bag is curated around a specific theme. June’s theme was Aloe, and the bag featured a number of products featuring this skin-friendly ingredient.

Although we are now in September, I was very kindly sent this bag to feature on my blog and I was really excited. I love aloe-based skincare and, even though Summer is a distant memory, as we rapidly move towards the colder months aloe is still a great ingredient as it helps protect skin against those harsh winter winds and drying central heating.

Memebox Seeds and Flowers

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 #50 Step By Step Skincare

image

Apparently Korean women spend way more on skincare than they do makeup; and their idea of taking care of the skin and treating imperfections, rather than simply covering it up with a tonne of foundation, makes complete sense if you think about it – what’s the point of gorgeous makeup if you don’t take care of what’s beneath?

With this in mind you will find that instead of a simple cleanse, tone and moisturise the Korean skincare routine consists of multiple steps – a combination of products that can seem quite frankly baffling and a little bit daunting. Memebox Special #50 Step By Step Skincare* from our favourite K-Beauty experts Memebox aims to simplify this by giving us an almost complete routine for us to discover and enjoy. Step By Step Skincare is a Memebox Superboxes, which contain all full size products, and dare I say it’s one of my favourite boxes to date! I love that we have an almost full routine and I was so excited to delve right in and get to grips with this exciting multi-step skincare routine.

Memebox Christmas Collection #1 Stress-Free Holidays

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!
