Memebox: Product reviews

Recommended Posts

@@eugiegenie great review! Your husband is wonderful for being your test subject, too!! lol


I just got my first box yesterday, so I don't have any major reviews yet. I would like to try the products for about a week and then state my results. I will say that my initial reaction on 3 products are positive - the O& SoapBerry Cleanser, Dream cream and the Tea Tree essence (all from luckybox 5)

Those 3 could have the potential to be fixtures in my makeup arsenal!

@@eugiegenie Great review! Maybe I should get that for my fiance. I know this sounds awful but his blackheads just bug me LOL. He obviously doesn't care about skincare & stuff so I try to get him to do pore strips sometimes.

I just tried the Bling Bling cream today, I'm not sure what it was but it just didn't work out for me. I couldn't really tell if it was yellow or pink undertones -- it looked yellow going on but when I went out in the light it seemed pinkish? I think because of the tiny bit of shimmer they have in it. Overall it was too pale for me, though.

 

If you've got the teeny Miguhara BP cream samples from Memebox 2 or Luckybox 4, try that out, too! They apply like a dream. Very powdery (might be a good or bad thing depending on your makeup routine). Super light coverage, though (again, might be a good or bad thing).

I tried the Bling Bling Cream yesterday and I couldn't get it to work for my skintone either.. granted, I have golden/olivey undertones and am not exactly fair-skinned, but I thought I could at least kind of use it :/ I ended up darkening it up with my tanned-summer BB cream and kind of got it to blend in so I didn't look like a ghost.  I also just felt like it was counteracting my undertones and wasn't working.  So sad.  I may try a 50/50 mix of that and my dark BB cream to see if I can get it to work better, but I'm thinking probably not :/  Glad to know I'm not the only one though!

I'm actually thinking, since hubby didn't really like the way I extracted his blackheads using the pore extracting stick...maybe applying the Step 1 mask, I could use a pore strip to help remove the blackheads instead..and then followed by the Step 2 mask and the Step 3 essence. Do you guys think it would work? Let me try next time, and I'll let you guys know  :)

@eugiegenie  before applying the pore strip, I would have him put a hot - well warm-hot - wet towel over his face (like they do in spa's).  That way it will open up his pores before you apply the strip :)

 

let us know how it goes!

hehe that's how we do it normally too, but with the Skinmiso mask, after the first step, all the dirty stuff actually came gushing out to the top of the skin that i could see it with my bare eyes!!! like if i extracted the blackheads from my nose, i think it would still be okay, cos the blackheads were already sitting there on top of the nose...i think it's just men, like women would do anything to make themselves pretty, even if it's painful, but men wouldn't haha!!

I really like the Illi fresh moisturizer I got in Memebox 11. It's very light, so it's good for summer and it has a really nice citrus scent. I believe Illi is an Amore Pacific brand.

Here are a few reviews of products I really enjoyed and really didn't get on with ( I do have very sensitive skin, so keep that in mind):

 

The best:

Iope bio conditioning essence- made by skin super smooth and hydrated. Its honestly a good skin day in a bottle. 

Zivon plus scrub oriental - amazing scrub, its really fine so is not abrasive. Moisturising at the same time, smells amazing and even bubbles up when you use it in the shower. 

Botanical hill boh radiant ampoule essence (cream)- amazing cream essence, provides perfect even base for make up without silicone. makes skin soft and smooth. 

Hanskin bb ampoule- does not react with my skin, glides on smoothly without clinging on to any dry patches. Long wearing and does not make my skin oily. 

Puerederm exfoliating foot mask- really really works. made my feet peel like crazy for a week but now Im left with baby smooth feet. 

Derma b lotion- amazing for your skin, leaves skin super soft and smells amazing. This lotion converted me into moisturising my body because its so nice. 

 

The worst:

Goodal repair essential oil- made me break out like crazy, caused an allergic reaction on my skin where my skin felt like it was burning. Did nothing for my hair either except made it feel really greasy even after washing. 

Heartface ultra care sleeping pack- made my skin inflamed and itchy, had to wash off after 10 seconds due to burning sensation. 

Miguahara bp cream and verikos ultra matte primer- Whilst temporary effects of silicone filling in my pores were amazing, after a few days my face started to break out like crazy. I guess Im not meant to use silicone based primers. 

Tonymoly delight lip stain- dried out my lips so badly that I thought they were going to crack. Im surprised no one has mentioned this before. 

Illi fresh moisture body lotion- really drying lotion, the smell of lemon is really really strong.

I am not sure what results I should be seeing!!  It keeps my skin hydrated under the eyes, but so far, nothing different.  I guess it takes time?

I have a tonymoly lip product from luckybox 5 - it is a stain too. It doesn't dry out my lips and my lips are in pretty good condition, but oh boy - the other day, I looked at my reflection after wearing it an hour or so, and the inner part of my lip was stained, my lip line was stained and the rest had kinda rubbed off!! I was horrified. Perhaps this is why it is good for that gradient lip look and I shouldn't apply it to cover my lips, but just the inner part only.

I actually really like the V7 eye cream, but I guess I'm in the minority! I don't have major dark circles, but they are dark enough that I prefer to use concealer than not. But I've found that since using the V7 everyday I sometimes totally forget to use my under eye concealer since they aren't as noticeable. It did take about a month for me to notice that though, and I am sure the results are temporary.

I liked this eye cream very much! It kept my skin really bright and moisturized. You have to wait for the effects about 2 or more weeks though, and they're rather temporary. I've started using the eye serum from Memebox #10 and I can't see any wonders so far... But then again, I'll wait some time before I judge.

I'm in love with Too Cool For School Dinoplatz CC Cream from the last Global! It's so light, it doesn't clog the pores at all but the coverage is still quite good. The color is really light so perfect for me and it doesn't get more yellow with time. I think it's very good for summer - light, not oily but with a good staying power. And looks so natural, too.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
