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

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

    • 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.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
