Memebox Spoilers!

Recommended Posts

Nice boxes. And I like C&T, too. Although, at this point I'm not sure I'd really want those boxes because they're so good or because I suffer so much from withdrawls LOL

I originally bought both these boxes but cancelled them when I panicked at the thought of them having lots of CPM2 leftovers (I'm looking at you Revecen purple primer- how many can a girl need?). I might have a twinge of memebox envy just now but thankfully the 2 items I would most have wanted from the boxes -the Benton set- I already purchased during the cybersale.

The Black Friday boxes looks nice. Good to see no more CPM2. Though not getting any box envies as it still shouts warehouse clearing to me. At least they did say it is items that previously appeared in boxes in the description so no lies there.

Both are fairly nice boxes, now I wish I picked up #4 as well.

Im actually super happy with cleanse&tone (except no cleansing oil) and black friday 4+5 the expensive multi purpose cream and serum + benton does it for me. Whatever else they throw in I look at as a plus. Far better than 19$ petite/blackout for instance!

Really like the Cleanse & Tone, was expecting an oil cleanser, but happy to try the clean it zero instead.

BF4&5 look good too.

My problem with cleanse and tone is that 4 of the products have a retail value of less than $10 combined. It feels like it needs one more large product, a full size Banila cleanser would have been perfect.

One thing tho, I'm super annoyed if they're gonna quit giving information cards out. I keep all mine because it's easier to look it up from the card than searching it up on the site. Meh

I just received Oh My Lips and Pouch Essentials. I saw someone posted a spoiler photo of oh my lips. Has anyone posted one of Pouch Essentials yet?

 

Sorry for the ridiculously terrible photo quality. I'm stuck using my phone until my new camera arrives today. =D

 

I'm really new to MemeBox, but Pouch Essentials looks decent to me. It's a broad range of products. I am a little bummed to see the Rosemine lip balm in both Pouch Essentials and Oh My Lips (mint tea vs rose fairy, but still. meh).

I just realized that the value of Pouch Essentials is absolutely terrible. 4.5 ml of the Hanskin makes it worth $6.57. I'm going to guess the Witch's Pouch is half size, so $7.50 (although I think it's probably more like a third). So that makes the box total $39.57.

Ouch, yeah, the value on this sucks, and it's really makeup heavy which isn't going to thrill a lot of people (although maybe folks were expecting that considering the theme?). But that Hanskin sample is absolutely coveted, and yay for Witch's Pouch!

Yeah! Even at its tiny size, I'm happy to have the Hanskin. I've read great things. And only using a drop at a time, even the small bottle will last quite a while.

 

I haven't heard of Witch's Pouch before. It looks like a mini Benefit chacha tint. I got a warm coral-y, orange-y color. But the description sounds more like a gloss/stain/stick hybrid.

The ridiculously low value of pouch essentials/ cleanse and tone/ oh my lips makes me pretty upset. The fact that they're all low-value boxes in one bundle...sigh.

 

Pouch essentials is awful for me. There may be a couple of items that I'll enjoy, but I have 2 of the hanskin that I haven't even touched yet. I already have the witches pouch item as well, and the rosemine lip balm coming in the lips box

 

Ugh these were some of my last boxes coming to me (other than brighten and correct/mask) and overall it's a general let-down feeling. :(

 

Although THANK YOU @IndeliKate for posting the pouch spoilers! You're a peach! <3

Maybe I'm just easy to please but I'm pretty happy with C&T. I feel like the Banilla Co is supposed to be the "oil" component, even though it is a balm. I'm currently going through a full size, but it'll be nice to have travel sizes. Excited about the toner, I've gotten the Tea Toc things three dang times now, and I'm not crazy about foaming citrus cleaners but I'll give it a shot. And I can always use another sheet mask and cleansing cloths. 

 

I got the BF#5, and I hate that I got the Steam Cream because that stuff clogs my pore like crazy. Will be trading that away asap. And I hate lip balms that come in tubs like that, so that'll be going too. I'll keep the hand cream and the BB to try... But what is that Hologram Collection thing???

I'm happy with them. Very very glad about the Neogen toner. That is the star of the box for me!

Also I really like Ernesti cleansers, so happy to try it in another variation. The box needed one more full size product to make it great though. The essence mask is one time use and the wipes are only a pack of 10.

Agree with @@MissJexie that there should have been an oil cleanser. This would have been the box to do it.

 

The Lips box exceeded my expectations. It's a very fun and useful little box.

I will use all but one of the products. It's the best lip box by far. (in my opinion)

 

 

Is the Mizon essence not a pack of 30 sheets??

Yeah....They're little square patches that you can apply for moisture. Sort of like the point pads.

YESSSSSSSSS I'M INVOLUNTARILY GETTING SNAIL BEE

 

I have purposely avoided buying Benton products because of the mess that occurred in March.  That said, I've had a longing to try the snail bee products after hearing the 90% of reviews that give it high praise.  Thank you, MemeBox, for forcing it into my hands and making an end-run around my principles (seriously, thanks, this is the only way I would have ended up trying it).

I think it's generally just for the boxes that are shipped shortly after release (I'm guessing they would have trouble getting the cards prepared and printed in time..). So, I guess if they really do try to stick to the shorter times between release and shipping, then the online cards may become more of a thing.

 

I agree, though, having the physical cards makes things easier.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
