Memebox K-Beauty Wrap up No. 2

Dear all,

I realised I missed doing a review on another Memebox - mainly because this one didn´t have a printed card. However as I am in Meme-panic mode (they stop shipping globally on February 10th) I decided to quickly do the review anyway.



 And this photo is taken from the Memebox website:



1. O’GCE Minus Touch Cooling Nose Pack Set [Cooling Nose Pack 10pcs + Pore Slim Pad Pouch 10pcs]
Full size product: 10pcs + 10pcs ($24)
Product Description
No more blackheads and oily mess around your noses! The Cooling Nose Pack’s blend of blue menthol, button flower, arnica, and pancratium maritimum extract effectively soothe and cool down dry, irritated nose. Then the Pore Slim Pad’s gentle formula based on camellia extracts and witch hazel extracts works to tighten and refresh visibly enlarged pores.

How to use
Cleanse the nose thoroughly with water. With dry hands, remove the translucent film from the Cooling Nose Pack and place the smoother side over your nose. Let it rest for 10~15 minutes. Peel off from the outer edges. Gently rinse with water or toner. As for the Pore Slim Pad, place it over puffy eyes or nose in the morning for about 10~15 minutes. Remove and follow with toner and emulsion.

 What I think:
I won´t have use for the nose pack because my blackheads are barely visible. My boyfriend will be receiving those. I am interested in the pore slim pads though, but will use them in summer when the heat really enlarges my pores :-)

2. ECLADO Real Radiance Whitening Cream 40g
Full size product: 40g ($50)
Product Description
This non-sticky, lightweight formula absorbs into skin smoothly to reduce appearance of dry patches and roughened skin texture and to brighten up dulled complexion. A blend of allantoin, licorice, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, green tea extracts, and portulaca extracts replenishes, softens, and rejuvenates to give skin a healthy glow and youthful radiance.

How to use
Massage the cream gently all over clean face as the last step to skin care. Pat it in with clean hands for full absorbance.

What I think:
I really like Whitening creams, but I have quite a few in my stash. Sure, this will get used at some point or given away to someone else, but it has not top-priority in my stash right now.

what I received - Ignore the missing concealer. I got it, but it went missing in my huge make up case
3. MINERAL BIO Natural Mineral White Clay Pack 80ml
Full size product: 80ml ($24)
Product Description
Detoxify, purify, and refine the skin with the power of white clay. Combined with the pore-unclogging and oil-absorbing powers of kaolin and pure mineral water, this detoxifying mask helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and rid the pores of harmful, pore-clogging toxins. It also shrinks enlarged pores for the look of pore-free, porcelain skin, and controls shine for a refined look. All the products from Mineral Bio are greatly acknowledged for high content of natural mineral water which was also approved and categorized by the US FDA as being ‘High Mineral Content.’

How to use
Spread the clay pack evenly over clean face. Leave it on for 10~15 minutes. Massage gently with lukewarm water and rinse off. Follow with toner. Recommended to be used 2~3 times a week.
(Best Before January 13th, 2016)

What I think:
I hate having products with such a nearby expiery date because it means I have to start using it soon. I presently use up my claypatra clay mask sample, once it is used up I will start using this mask. I normally do clay masks once a week, so I hope I can actually use this up before it expires. I appreciate I got it, but not the expiry date :-(

4. I.MYSS Natural Toc Face Tuning Eye Cream 30ml
Full size product: 30ml ($30)
Randomly selected from Tea Tree, Argan Oil

Product Description
It’s about time you upgrade your skincare regimen to include things like eye creams – if you wish to maintain your youthfulness for as long as possible! The Natural Toc Face Tuning Eye Cream enriched with natural ingredients such as tea tree extracts and argan oil are perfect for those just entering the world of ‘anti-aging’. It’s gentle in formula, deliver intense hydration and nutrition, and suitable for daily use because it melts softly into eye contours with a moist, light finish.

How to use
Apply gently to eye contours. Use the tip of your ring finger to dab it on.

What I think:
I got the tea tree variation and I am not sure whether I want to put tea tree so close to my eyes. I will try it at some point, but I would have prefered the argan oil variation. I never break out around my eyes anyway so I don´t get the point of having an eye cream with tea tree oil (as much as I love tea tree otherwise)

5. I.MYSS Cantabile Stick BB Concealer 1ea
Full size product: 1ea ($13)
Randomly selected from #01 Light Beige, #02 Natural Beige

Product Description
Cantabile Stick BB Concealer adheres tightly over blemishes or acne scars to provide flawlessly smooth and porcelain-finish coverage. It comes in an easy-to-carry stick type and its moisturizing formula enriched with vitamin E complex helps maintain skin moist and soft.

How to use
Dab over skin imperfections you wish to cover up. Blend it in using a foundation brush or your finger. Re-apply as needed throughout the day.

What I think:
It is a really nice light textured concealer. I used it several times and liked it - it is somewhere in my make up stash and I intend to find it again ;-)

6. XAIVITA+ Goat Milk Skin Care Series
1) Goat Milk Bubble Soap 85g
This bubble soap formulated from rich goat milk helps rid of accumulated wastes, dead skin cell and excessive sebum with a powerful deep cleansing effect while maintaining the soft and supple feeling afterwards. It’s non-irritating as it carries no harmful toxins and only bases its gentle formula on naturally derived cleansing agents.
2) Goat Milk Moisturizing Hand Cream 70ml
Goat milk with abundant moisturizing agents deeply replenishes dry, roughened hands and creates a protective moisture film over the skin to maintain your hands soft and silky.
3) Goat Milk Wrinkle Essence 80ml
This is an anti-wrinkle facial essence enriched with goat milk nutrients for creating a protective moisture film over skin and providing instant hydration and nourishment deep into the skin. It feels in fine lines and wrinkles and tightens up saggy skin to give skin extra firmness and elasticity.
4) Goat Milk Vitamin Scrub Foam Cleansing 150ml
This is a scrub foam cleanser containing goat milk and abundant vitamin nutrients to help exfoliate excess skin impurities, dust, dead skin cell, and sebum. It will deep cleanse the face and replenish vitality and healthy glow to your face. Contains no artificial additives thus gentle and non-irritating to all skin types.
5) Goat Milk Bubble Foam Cleansing 150ml
This is a bubble foam cleanser enriched with goat milk to deep cleanse, soften, smoothen, and rid the skin of excessive sebum, oil, dirt, and wastes. Its moisturizing formula leaves skin moist and supple. Especially recommended for dry and sensitive skin types.

What I think:
I received the soap bar, which I hoped I wouldn´t. I would have prefered the essence or one of the cleanser options. It smells nice, but I am not sure I will use it.

Altogether: I am disappointed about the clay mask expiry date. I would have preffered the argan oil eye cream and anything from the goat series but the soap bar or the hand cream. The rest of is is things I don´t urgently need. It is a box with high potencial and if there are options there is allways room for gamble but this time it seems like I mostly lost in it. Well, it can happen ;-)
