“Memebox is the #1 Korean beauty online retailer in the world.
Many of our products are sourced, packaged, and shipped, directly from Korea straight to your doorstep.”
Yippee! Second Memebox arrived and it’s nothing short of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
This hot pink beauty box was sooo heavy when I held it in my hands and I just couldn’t wait to unbox it. And guess what? When I opened it, I found out that there were 6 FULL-SIZED products in the Beauty Box! Never have I once received so many full-sized products in a beauty box before! ^.^ And all the products are Korean – with cute packaging, lovely scents, and a promised efficacy.
Tell me… How to resist?!
The #31 Earth & Sea Cosmetics Memebox is filled with beauty products that all have something in common.
“When toxins, dirt and oil build up get under the skin, its waste-filtering 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.”
Let’s start sharing with you the amazing products! ^^
Shara Shara Black Charcoal Purifying Mask (23g) $2
The Shara Shara Black Charcoal Purifying Mask contains high concentrations of charcoal powder and volcanic ash complex. As we all know, charcoal is really good at absorbing impurities, and volcanic ash is excellent in detoxifying, so with this two working together, this mask is a sure-kill combo! Not only that, it contains wine and aloe vera to help soothe and protect sensitive skin.
Thoughts: Haven’t tried this but I’m really excited to!
Ariul Spa Water 24 Hours Moisturising Refreshing Mist (100ml) $18
This baby is made from pure spa water extracted from Belgium, and is rich in minerals and various amino acids. The mist delivers an instant replenishment into the skin, creating a moisture barrier all day long! It prevents dehydration, and also can be used as a boosting serum to enhance absorption of other skincare products.
Thoughts: Tried this and love it! It has a green apples perfume-y scent and is refreshing when sprayed on the face. My face felt instantly lifted and hydrated. Definitely a keeper in my beauty routine :)
Elizavecca Elastic Pore Mask Cleansing Foam (120ml) $29
Made from 6,000mg of charcoal, 3,000mg of collagen from pig skin, and spider (web) extracts! Never heard of using spider web extracts in beauty products, but as weird as it sounds, the combination of charcoal, collagen, and spider web extracts will penetrate deep into your pores, clear away dead skin cells and blackheads with bubbles as fine as a spider web! Hehe, interesting way to put it.
Thoughts: First thing that caught my eye was the cute illustration of a scarf-donning piggy and a wiggly spider! Haha it sure makes the prospect of using spider web extracts a lot less mortifying. But yes, I haven’t tried this, but am looking forward to! A quick peek into the tube shows that the content is dark coloured, probably due to the charcoal :)
And it being a cleanser AND mask 2-in-1, it works a little differently from normal foaming cleansers. How to use: Spread the Mask Cleansing Foam evenly over dry face. Then, wet it with a little bit of water and gently roll your fingers thoroughly over face for 3 – 5 minutes. Finally, rinse off with warm water.
Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack (100g) $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 parabens, artificial fragrance, colouring, and is suitable for all skin types!
Thoughts: After clearing all the impurities, next step would be to tighten ya pores! Pore size is largely determined by genetics, but some products do help to some extent by clearing dirt and keeping them small. Really amazed by the organic nature of this product with no unnecessary additives! I can’t wait to try this. In fact, my skin is in need of some detoxifying right now!
Tosowoong Super Aqua Cooling Gel (80g) $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 moisturise skin so that you can have firm and supple skin all day long.
Thoughts: Tried this! It feels like a gel, but upon applying, it turns into a more watery state that you can spread easily. It really does feel cooling on the skin, and I think this will be good for after being out under the sun for too long, or after a sun tanning session. Definitely will provide some relief to overheated skin!
Dewytree Mineral Healthy Sun Cut Loose Powder SPF36 PA++ (10g) $34
Dewytree’s loose powder is enriched with natural minerals and essential oil for maintaining your skin’s moister level and leaving a long-lasting silky finish to your makeup. Plus, it has a UV protection level of SPF36 PA ++ and uses an air pocket puff that does not clog pores!
Thoughts: Tried this and omg I love it so much! It’s the only makeup product in the #31 box and it doesn’t let down. The powder is so light and creates this smooth silky texture as mentioned, like tofu! The powder particles are also extremely fine and do not leave any visible streaks when applied. This is going into my makeup bag!
