What are some of your holy grail products you've discovered through Memebox? I'm still newer to Memebox, I've only received 6 of the many I've ordered, but I want to cut back my Memebox spending, and just get some certain items I will love. I'd love to hear some of the amazing products you've found from a Memebox and would order on it's own!

I love, love, love the Skin Factory 7 seconds morning sheets from Mask 4. I just ordered 2 from Wishtrend. They're kinda pricey but make my skin feel so good and my makeup goes on smoother. They're really nice if you're wanting to speed up a morning skin care routine, like before work! I keep them in the fridge, so refreshing.

Mine are:

 

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella Asiatica ampoule

Skin1004 Cocoon Soap: Free from Oil & Trouble 2

 

 Apparently this is everyone's least favorite box, but it's been the only box I've gotten and loved every single product. They didn't all end up holy grail items, but they're all pretty great.

 

 i belivyu flower hand creams: Birthday box

 

These little guys are awesome! They're very moisturizing without being greasy. I read some review where the person didn't want to try them because of the flower scent. I'm not a flower scented kinda gal myself, but they don't smell that strongly and it fades really quickly. 

 

Witch's Pouch "Sexy swan" blush: F/W 

 

I'm not 100% certain yet, but I feel like this is going to make it to the list. It is the EXACT color of my skin when I blush. Only shimmery and pretty. It's very pigmented and didn't fade after 10 or 11 hours of  (sweaty) wear. I actually think I like this better than the only blush I've used for the last 5 years. Witch's Pouch seems like a really unique, high quality brand. I really want to try a lot more of their stuff.

I really hope you like it! It seems like one of those shades that's universally flattering.

Here is my list of products I've loved SO much that I've re-purchased or plan to repurchase/wish I could FIND it somewhere because I've run out. Bolded items are absolute holy grail.

 

Memebox Global #1:

- Plant Stem Cell Moisturizer Goddess Cream (only got foil packets of this but loved it so much that I've purchased 2 full sizes!)

- Re:cipe By Nature Spray Essence Water

 

Memebox Global #3

- Dear by Enprani Bounce Cheese Cream

- Nuganic Customized Sunblock SPF 50 

 

Memebox Global #4

- T.E.N. Cremorlab Mineral Treatment Essence

 

Memebox Global #6

- O'Sum Aloe Vera Soothing Mist

- Nella Fantasia Oneday Whitener (love me some pale skin!)

- Kovas Cettua Silk and Shiny Foot Mask (best softening foot mask I've ever tried and I can't find it anywhere!)

 

Hair and Body #1

-1004 Laboratory Kiss the Perfume Brilliant Hair Treatment (one of the BEST products I've ever tried from Memebox!)

 

Memebox Global #9

- Kerasys Oriental Premium Shampoo

 

Free From Oil and Trouble #1

- Dr. Young U-Line Clearing Mist

- Ciracle Red Spot Cream

 

10 Minute Box

Milk Edition

- Enesti Rice and Milk Foaming Cleanser

 

Cacao Edition

- Purederm Nose Strips in Choco Cacao

 

Whole Grain Edition

- Purebess Galactomyces 100% concentrate

- Purebess Galactomyces Eye Cream

 

Mask #4

-Skinfactory 7 Seconds Morning Sheet

 

K-Style #1

- Shara Shara Soft Coral Blush

- Awesome Aqua Radiance CC Cream

- Secret Key Sweet Glam Tint Glow in "Juicy Orange" (was so shocked at how gorgeous this looks on my lips...like a sweet pink shade rather than an orange!)

 

There's a few boxes I'm forgetting, a few I haven't had long enough to really test everything, and a few that didn't have anything that wowed me. Of course I haven't gotten every box, but so far I think it's a good track record for Memebox to have this many things I've loved!

Agree with most of what @@MissJexie stated.

I really love the Re:cipe By Nature Spray Essence Water and Kerasys hair shampoo.

I'll add the Cherry Blossom kiss the perfume hair conditioner (from H&B 1 box), drww Actigen smart cream gel (#10) and Centella Aesthetica ampoule (O&T 1 box). These are my staples and I almost finish using all of it! I do find many other things useful, but not HG so to speak.

I know I've raved about this before, but the SN-T Goddess Cream from the From Nature box fixed my skin. I went from super-oily, couldn't keep makeup on my face to just oily in the t-zone. I've never had anything work so well on my skin.

I want expecting much when I tried the Chamos Acaci matte pore primer from pore care 3 because I've never found a primer that makes any difference for me but I am so glad I tried it because it is AMAZING!! It keeps my oily skin matte all day and makes my face feel so smooth. I've tried Benefits Porefessional and a few other primers (from Memebox and elsewhere) but nothing hold a candle to this one. I'm a little bit obsessed with it.

I am also really liking the Yufit Eon Wheat-germ Cream from Memebox #13. I've been using it at night and it is so gentle and moisturizing (I have sensitive skin so some creams burn a little when I use them and I am not a fan of that sensation).

I've gotten lots of fun, useful products so far (still fairly new), but only one HG: the Miguhara BP cream. I love the smooth, matte finish it gives - the coverage is almost non-existent, but it makes me look subtly more "done" somehow, and it's the only primer I've tried so far (not that I've tried many) that actually seems to blur my pores.

 

I was hoarding my two little samples, but have started to wear it more often now that I'm expecting a full-size in my Coffee Break With Dani box, which I bought just for the cream. I think it might actually be improving the texture of my skin with more frequest use - when I woke up this morning my skin looked smoother! It's a little drying in places on my normal skin, though.

I absolutely love the SKINAZ Lip Tattoo. It's amazing and so fun to use! Not only that but it's actually really effective. I went out and purchased the color I wanted after I got the one in the OMG box.

I think this is more of an enabling thread because I'm making a list of things to try :)

 

I finally have the recipe by nature spray water essence that I've heard so many people talk about. It smells amazing! It is very light and pleasant on the skin. I think this is going to be a HG item for me.

One of my absolute favorite product that i got (one that i even consider repurchasing when i run out of it) is the:

 

Oseque Melting Bubble Cleanser from the Bubble Pop box.

 

It doesn't irritate my skin at all, no redness after washing my face. Completely removes my face makeup. Application is always fun as it bubbles up hehe. Love love love it!

 

I'm seeing the 7 Seconds mask a lot on people's lists ^^ I have it but i've never bothered trying it but i guess i'm gonna have to try it now! It'll be dangerous if i end up loving it haha.

Nice thread! Love reading all your HG from Memebox!^^

I have quite a few myself;

* Dr.G Mentor Cream for Damaged skin - This is so good for my dry and sensitive skin which is also prone to redness from products. Made my skin silky smooth, very moisturized and it sinks in within seconds. @@biancardi, sasa.com has it btw! Will buy fullsize from there myself soon :)

* LJH Tea Tree Essence - Use this when I'm on my period week. Keeps the breakouts away, like seriously. And IF I a celdom time gets them this really helps clear it up fast.

* Ciracle Red Spot Cream - For the few breakouts I do get, this clears them in 2-3 days. Magical product. 

* Hello Everybody Vita Berry Shampoo + Conditioner - Mostly for the smell; but it's also very moisturizing. I feel like smelling my hair the entire day after using it. Already repurchased.

The donkey milk and garan oil steam cream from the milk box is fantastic. I use just a littlemformmy whole face and my face has never felt so baby butt smooth. It makes my skin litterally soft ad a baby's butt, supple, ridiculously moisturizing and best part is that it is not greasy! I'll be so sad when i run out.

I know some items from the more recent boxes could have made it to this HG list but I have not properly reviewed them! I am having high hopes for the Kangskin dermocosmetics, reBom essence, Earth Sea's volcanic pack and mist, those cute Sally's box hydrogel masks and more. Does anyone ever catch up with reviewing the latest stuff? They need more hype!  :P

    • You would clean this brush daily like you would any full sized powder brush... using a brush cleaner in a spray bottle and gently wipe with a paper towel, repeat as necessary until no more pigment transfer is visible on the paper towel. <a>Remember to use a proper brush cleaner like MUSST, Parian Spirit, Wipe Out, Cinema Secrets, Ben Nye as these are instant drying brush cleaners.<a> Avoid 99%, as this will make the hairs brittle. Also avoid using Brush-Off brush cleaner, as this brush cleaner leaves a waxy feel to the hairs. Also avoid dipping full sized brushes such as this directly into the above mentioned brush cleaners, as this will take a long time for the bristles to dry like about a couple of hours or so. And it will also soak up a LOT of brush cleaner, about a 1/2 bottle's worth, which will go to waste, including your money. For a more deeper cleansing, (once a week or once every 2 weeks) you would use a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Gently squeeze out any excess water and let air dry. For this style of brush, wrap a piece of paper towel or a small piece of an anti-slip mat around the handle, (to prevent damage to the handle) and wrap a stiff wire around it or use a small spring clamp and hang the brush upside down to air dry. NEVER rest the brush on its' dome or its' side as the weight will create flat spots and split ends. Based on the full-sized bristle area, this brush will take about 1 and-a-half to 2 days to dry at room temperature. Also, NEVER blow dry or use any type of forced air to dry full sized brushes such as this, as this will damage the hairs by making the hair fuzzy (split ends) and overly fluffy, which cannot be repaired by a conditioner as the hairs cannot grow and repair itself. Based on the pics, I can tell that the bristles are soft and supple and grouped together in a nice domed shape, they should not be fluffy, as in the dome shape is distorted or misshapen.   <a> For a gauge, (as a Professional MuA), I use a 500ml bottle of Wipe Out, and sometimes MUSST as my go to brush cleaners. On a TV series a 500ml bottle lasts me about 2-3 weeks. The spray bottle version lasts me about 2 months. This is based on cleaning about 80 or so brushes a day at 5 days a week. For the lay person, a 500ml bottle will last you about 2 months or so and the spray bottle version at least 5 months or so. Just to be clear, it's the same brush cleaner formula in the refill size (500ml) and in the spray bottle option. Any more questions or clarifications please don't hesitate to ask! 😉
    • Hi Cindy, Question 1) Yes, there are, Gels and acrylics. Most if not all productions will have a Nail Tech or MuA apply and remove the acrylics daily, that's in the actors' union contract. Some productions send their actors to a nail salon to get their nails done. Question 2) That question and decision is up to the Director. Remember, film productions understand that cast have to live in the real world too, just like the rest of us, so all those factors you mentioned above have already been taken into consideration months ago in pre-production, and in H/M/W meetings. Good luck and have fun on set in January!
    • Is this a selling party or a an application only party?  If you're holding a selling product party, then I would apply to a make-up company that offers a third-party product reselling service such as Eve Pearl, SeneGence, Avon, etc. Once you've been approved, they send you their entire product line in demonstration form, you do your applications, make your sales, place your orders and so on. Along with the demonstrator products, the company will also include a few products for sale when you do make an on-the-spot-sale so your clients won't go home empty handed. For an application party, typically you gift them a full sized lipstick colour that you've just applied to them. So four ladies are not too bad, since a lipstick runs between $25-$35, so yeah that kind of adds up on a limited budget. At least you're not buying an entire make-up line for each lady. Also as a new MuA, I am guessing you understand about proper product hygiene, using clean brushes for each person, not double-dipping into mascara or foundation bottles etc. Being a clean MuA goes a long way in maintaining your clients.
