Memebox: Product reviews

Recommended Posts

okay, I love the 7 second morning sheet in my mask 4 box!  So easy to do and very refreshing!  this is a major timesaver in the morning and I am saving the rest of my sheets for when I go on vacation.

I got this in the Luckybox...7? Or one of them. I thought it was making a difference under my eyes, but I'm starting to think it's not doing anything... I guess I was deluding myself into thinking it was helping, haha.

well, not sure if it'll help but I recently discovered (with my eye care at least) that if you use an eye serum or essence and then an eye cream, it really helps a lot. I've started using an serum and cream together for the past few days and my very dark under eye circles have lighten up. I didn't sleep very for the past few day so eyes were like pandas...haha.

Interesting! This would be the cream, right? (I'm a skincare newbie for the most part) I don't know if I have a serum/essence. I have the TeaTree essence from the same Luckybox?...

I've also been using this for at least a month with no results!

Tried the WondeRuci Cacao mask today. I've put the picture in a spoiler because no one should be subjected to that without notice lol

I found it not only smells like brownie mix but is also about the same consistency, although once it was on and warmed up to skin temperature it got really shiny and seemed almost runny. It wasn't a drying mask that's for sure!

 

I really liked it :-)

 

I put it on with a foundation brush and while it felt like I was stacking on the product there wasn't a much at all gone at the end. I think I will manage 15+ uses out of the jar.

 

Advice - maybe don't use white bath towels. I know it will wash out but it's still annoying!

The Bad

 

The Skin House Snail System Cream (Snail #1)- it's mostly snail slime, but perhaps too much snail slime- I can't even open the lid without slime strings getting everywhere.  It's a 5-minute process just scooping some from the jar, and then it's hopelessly sticky on my face.  Just no.

Glad I'm not the only one. It's SO messy. Snail slime everywhere except my face when I try to use it. -.-

Yea, the dr.jart is a cream but when i say serum and essence, it has to be an eye serum or essence. So if you got the memebox 10, there's a eye serum in there. i use this one with my own eye cream and it works wonders, for me at least. You should try it and see what happens but don't put too much the first time because you'll never know how your skin or products will react to together.

I love that snail cream. It's tricky to get on, but I've got it sussed now and don't make a mess. It feels really heavy on my face initially but after 10 or so minutes it's soaked in - I only use it at night.

Thank you very much! I haven't mastered the art of nice review photos yet so thank you for finding a positive :D

All right, I just broke down and ordered some of that snail hair treatment off ebay. I swear, I haven't heard one bad thing about it!

You will not regret it, I used some today and my hair feels amazing!

Just a few quick early morning raves:

 

-Kerasys shampoo from Memebox Global #9:  Just this shampoo and a little of my usual Moroccanoil (light) and I have Pantene commercial-worthy hair!  Hate that it supposedly has SLS, but my hair seems to love it anyway!

 

-RiveCowe Sebum Control Compact from Office Essentials:  Yes, I ordered the restocked box when it was offered as a special deal with the Dr. G Brightening Balm.  I figured even if it was one of the more lackluster boxes, it was a good deal with the BB cream.  Well, this box was worth it for me for the RiveCowe compact alone!  This does everything I want a powder to do...it controls oil without completely mattifying my face, it doesn't change the color of my foundation, it doesn't look powdery at all.  I swear this stuff even took the sting out of some particularly angry hormonal blemishes I had this morning!  I actually ended up liking several items from this box...even the Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas?!) scented fabric spray (smells like fresh figs and some sort of herb I can't place)!

 

-IOPE Air Cushion XP:  This may be my HG foundation.  I seriously haven't touched my Guerlain Lingerie de Peau or YSL Touche Eclat foundation since I got this.  This is the same general product that is in the IOPE #2 box, but it may be a slightly different formula, as I ordered C21, which has the most coverage.  There is also a natural version with less coverage (N21, N23, etc.) and another version with shimmer...I'm not sure which of these is in the IOPE #2 box.  Anyway, it's perfectly dewy, provides great coverage, and the color is perfect. It looks like it would be way too dark for my super-pale skin in the compact, but it must adjust to match somewhat.  It's still a little darker than my usual foundations still, but it's not noticeably "off", and itactually makes me look less corpse-like. :lol:  This is my first ever CC cushion, so I can't say that it is any better than others featured by Memebox, but I LOVE it! I also love the overall design and easy application of the CC cushion concept in general!

@@Andi B that RiveCowe Sebum Control Compact is the best!!  I have it in my purse all the time.  For those who didn't get it - they do have it on ebay for about 13.00

Just used the oseque melting cleanser and skineralism ice whitening bubble pack from the bubble box. I have to say, the cleanser removed my make up with ease and honestly cleared out my skin. I love it! Best cleanser Ive used so far. (Although it does take a few mins to bubble up)

 

Skineralism ice whitening pack is amazing for clearing out any imperfections, and unfortunately it does a great job at whitening my pale skin too. Whilst the whitening effect I don't desire, it has left my skin a lot clearer.

That Kerasys was pretty nice....but the smell was so awful on my head I had to give it away. Fortunately my friend at work loved the smell so much I just gave it to her.

 

I just can't do anything heavily scented. Still kind of bummed about having to give away the shampoo.

Oh, that's too bad!  I really like stronger/lasting scents, as long as it's a good scent.

Alright, so I gave the ultimate test to the Hope Girl WaterProof Volumizing mascara.  I wore it to my Nana's funeral. It was 90 degrees out, too.

 

I am still flabbergasted that Hope Girl actually has some good products because really it just seems cheap.

 

But I'm in love with the 140 Super Lash and I can now say that the Waterproof Volumizing version is also just as good.  Applies perfectly with no clumping or flaking.  Tears did not wash it away and neither did rubbing my eyes. No smudging.  I would say that it's not super volumizing but I applied three coats really easily without clumps and my eyelashes looked great.  I always hate it when the mascara makes my eyelahses stick together stick together but this has a really funny wand and each eyelash stayed nicely separated.

 

I'm going to keep it on overnight to see how it goes and then comes the task of removing it. 

 

Maybe this is tmi for a mascara but I just can't get over my amazement.  I seriously expected nothing from Hope Girl and I'm very pleasantly surprised by their mascaras, at least. 

 

Now I'm off to use the Rivecowe compact since everyone is loving it!

I don't suffer from hair loss too lol! I just love then very earthy smell of it and gave it a try. It fluffs my hair abit and makes it stay that way for almost 2 days. Aka no need for dry shampoo the next day~ :)

I'm really sensitive to smells, and they give me migraines. This one wasn't quite a migraine level, but I was training a guy at work and he could smell it. He told me I smelled like an old lady...lol.

So I tried the aloe mask (not the sheet mask) from the aloe box yesterday night and it was wonderful! I'm surprised at how great it was. It has a bit of pulp in it and when you put it on your face, it's a bit cooling. After 20 mins, my face felt so smooth and soft that I couldn't believe it! You girls that got the aloe box should definitely give this mask a try. It has a nice light scent to it as well. :)

I just tried the 23yearls old mask from one of the global boxes, and boy it burned! I know its carbonated, but it actually made my face go bright red. and I only kept it on for few mins. Beware girls!

I used it last night and it burned me too. I have been using AHA wipes and think it made it worse. It made some of my peeling skin come off. Definitely not a relaxing mask.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
