Memebox Spoilers!

Recommended Posts

As I have oily skin, I don't find 7 to be that high.  I don't know what Koreans have to do with high pH levels in cleansers -  I know that American brands have HIGH pH levels, so it isn't a "mindset"   I think the mermaid box sounds nice and I am looking forward to the seaweed mist :)

 

@@Reija the tropical smoothie box is fantastic!  The hair product is a surprise winner for me :)

 

For those wanting a bubble cleanser that is lower pH, the ariul box has the spa water detox mask - which is just a cleanser - it has a pH level of 5-6 (I think it is closer to 5)

Whole Body Box - I normally stay away from these boxes, but this one is really nice!

 

skin79 crystal peeling gel

secret key so fast hair booster treatment - this is a conditioner, not a leave-in product. You can leave it on for 2-3 minutes or 20 minutes, but you do rinse it off (this is HUGE!)

holika holika baby foot one shot peeling masks (yeah!)

secret key perfume peeling body scrub - I was terrified that this would be floral, but it is a fruity-grape scent

missha total repairing hair treatment - really rich hand cream (I have tons of hand creams, but that doesn't stop me from collecting them).

For me, it's like this: Korean skin care is much better than American or European skin care as a whole.

The Korean brands put time and research into finding ingredients and formulas that are unique and good for the skin overall.

So why is one product, the cleanser, usually so out of line with the rest of their product quality and standards?

Almost every wash off cleanser I have ever gotten from a K brand is a high pH cleanser.

Sometimes, I don't want to use a cream cleanser, I want to use a rinse- off cleanser because it feels nice to me.

 

I've recently found one that is not from Korea but has a high percentage of Manuka honey and other really great ingredients and I will stick with using it, but it's depressing to pay for 5 items in a box, 2 may be masks, and one ends up being an alkaline skin cleanser that will disrupt the normal acid mantle base of my skin.

 

You've argued with my posts all around this site for months and months and I know you are going to try to refute this post as well, but I am disappointed that my huge stash of Korean skin care is rather marred by the first step being either harsh ( the wash off cleansers) or oil-based ( the balm type cleansers).

I keep buying boxes and bundles which invariably contain cleansers and I'm still giving the cleansers away to a local womens and childrens shelter a year into Korean skin care, so they are being used and hopefully liked.

I pH test every item before I use it and the cleansers ( and some toners) are the only products that Korean companies are not adjusting to a 5.5-6.5 pH skin- friendly range.

I believe my statements about being disappointed with the quality of their cleansers is a valid point. 

 I know chemistry and I know what's great and what's not good for normal but delicate facial skin.

I got mine too, @@Reija

 

I actually really like it!  I have oily straight fine hair so the hair products are perfect for me.   I will use all of the products.

I'm looking forward to trying them too. Overall I'm happy with the box. I used the body scrub this morning and it was nice.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands.
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
