I’m back with another Memebox unboxing post! I’ve really enjoyed this beauty box subscription service over the last couple of months! The boxes that I received so far have really awesome products that I already have a short list of Memebox product favorites that I’d like to share in a separate post.
The Memebox Special #31 Earth & Sea Cosmetics box contains natural beauty options designed to clear up the skin from dirt, oil and all other unwanted impurities. The exact description of this box reads:
“When toxins, dirt and oil build up under the skin, its waste-filterting system gets jammed, ultimately clogging up pores and making skin look dull. So, we’re bringing you nature’s clean-up crew to clear the way for cleaner and brighter skin. Charcoal, volcanic ash and mud all work together to draw out dirt and excess oil to extract stubborn impurities from deep within pores! Mineral rich marine energy works as the step 2 treatment for refining pores and replenishing moisture to the skin.”
The box contains 6 full size products all worth over $100! The box is worth only $29 + shipping when you order from the Memebox site.
I got a chance to try out some of the products from this box since it was delivered to my doorstep a couple of days ago. So, I will be able to give you a few snippets of my first impressions of some of the products.
Tosowoong Super Aqua Cooling Gel (80 g / $34)
The Super Aqua Cooling Gel is an ultra-cooling cream gel that provides long-lasting freshness and comfort to the face and body. Full of minerals and nutrients from glacier waters, this gel is ideal for cooling overheated skin and relieving irritated skin. Deep sea minerals also strengthen and moisturize the skin so that you can have firm and supple skin all day long.
I think this product would be of great use especially in the summer. But I live in a predominantly hot country so I believe this product will come in handy all year round. I tried using it today when it was particularly humid and I love the instant coolness and freshness that it gave my skin. I think what’s interesting to point out about this product is that it can be used on the body as well!
Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack (100 g / $36)
Enriched with organic Jeju complex and mineral rich volcanic ash, charcoal, green tea and pine needle extracts, this Volcanic Ash Pore Pack works wonders for controlling excess sebum and tightening enlarged pores. Plus, it’s free of paraben, artificial fragrance and artificial coloring and is suitable for all skin types.
Excess sebum – I have a lot of that! Enlarged pores – yes, I have those too! This pore pack sounds great based on the product description! I only got to try this pore pack once so I still haven’t formed a definite opinion about this. But from what I’ve tried, I really like how this pore pack left my skin feeling soft and clean.
Dewytree Mineral Healthy Sun Cut Loose Powder SPF 36 PA++ (10 g / $34)
Dewytree’s loose powder is enriched with natural minerals and essential oil for maintaining your skin’s moisture level and leaving a long-lasting silky finish to your makeup. Plus, it has a UV protection level of SPF 36 PA++ and uses an air pocket puff that does not clog pores with powder application.
First of all, let me just say how much I adore its packaging! It’s so darn cute in my opinion! It has a very light coverage but it does give a nice, silky finish to your makeup look. I noticed that it has a bit of a yellow tone to it which makes it work well for my skin color.
Shara Shara Black Charcoal Purifying Mask (23 g / $2)
Shara Shara’s Black Charcoal Mask contains high concentrates of charcoal powder and volcanic ash complex for clearing your skin of dirt, impurities and sebum clogging up your pores. It also works to soothe and protect sensitive skin with its wine and aloe vera leaf formula.
I believe that this mask has the same purpose as the Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack. But this mask comes in a sheet form that you can dispose after use. I love these kinds of masks because they’re very easy to use that you can just lie down for for 15-30 minutes while the mask works its magic!
Elizavecca Elastic Pore Mask Cleansing Foam (120 ml / $29)
Made from 6,000mg of charcoal, 3,000mg of collagen from pig skin and spider extracts, the Elastic Pore Mask Cleansing Foam is a mask and a facial cleanser all in one. As weird as the combination of charcoal, collagen and spider extracts sounds, this black mask will penetrate deep into your pores, clearing away all dead skin cells and blackheads with bubbles as fine as a spider web. A quick 5 minutes everyday is all you ever need to treat enlarged pores and excess skin impurities!
I gotta say that the brand Elizavecca has the weirdest products! I have their Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask which I’ll be reviewing really soon on this blog. I ended up loving that mask so much that it is now part of my skincare routine. I know that this cleansing foam sounds even weirder with the collagen from pig skin and spider extracts thrown into the mix! But if my love for the bubble clay mask is any indication, I might end up loving the cleansing foam too!
Ariul Spa Water 24 Hours Moisturizing Refreshing Mist (100 ml / $18)
Ariul Spa Water 24 Hours Moisturizing Refreshing Mist is made from pure spa water extracted from Belgium rich in mineral and various amino acids. The mist works to deliver an instant replenishment into your skin, creating a moisture barrier for preventing any dehydration for all day long. It can also be used as a boosting serum for enhancing absorbency of other skincare products.
I’ve been testing this mist for two days now as a serum instead of a refreshing mist. I have really oily skin so I don’t think my skin needs any more hydration than that. I use this after cleansing my face and I feel that it instantly moisturizes my skin that usually feels tight and dry after cleansing.
Being the beauty junkie that I am, I am very excited to try out all the products in this box! I think I’m definitely lucky that most of the products in this box are made for people with the same skincare dilemmas like me. The fact that the products in this box are made from nature’s best skincare elements is another plus! So if you have oily skin and enlarged pores like me, I definitely recommend this box for you!
