MEMEBOX Thanksgiving #1 For Me Unboxing & Review


I know it's a new year and I'm just now reviewing the Thanksgiving Edition #1 For Me.  Let's pretend it's still Thanksgiving, spending time with the family. ;)  This box is filled with awesome seven technically ten full size products and are kind of related to Thanksgiving.  It does make me happy and thankful!

Site:  http://us.memebox.com/



I love saving these cute boxes.  Memebox sponsored Christmas at our house this year, haha.  I save all my memeboxes and we used about one memebox for each family member (9), Haha.  My tower of memeboxes fell. I think it was two years ago when we wrapped everything in Victoria Secret boxes.  My little brother was soo sad when he saw that his present was wrapped in a "girl's store" box.



It always amazes me how memebox fits all of these great products into such a limited space.



Product Description:
A pop orange daylight, Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip in #22 Electric transforms into a glow-in-the-dark-electric orange under blue LED lights.  its feathery lightweight formula glides onto lips smoothly and steins it with the color radiance and adherence of a matter lipstick.  Plus its vivid color formation is based on dafflower components which were used as natural lip steins by Korean geishas back in the days.

Finally, I have a Clio Professional product!  I've been wanting to try out this brand for quite some time now.  It's a Korean brand that is similar to MAC.  When I first saw the color on the packaging I thought my oh my gosh, why out of all the pretty colors they have, why send a bright orange.  Don't get me wrong, I love orange but I already have so many!  Haha.  I think I have more than enough red/orange/peaches lipsticks to last me 3 life times.  


Although the color is bright neon, it goes on as a very nice and bright hot pink with a tint of orange.  It's such a pretty color!  This is a tinted lip stick and it does stain! :)  I do like it when lip sticks stain my lip because I'm lazy and don't like to reapply or retouch my make up during the day.  It also does not transfer!  How great is that!  Ah, I love this lipstick.  It's also matte, which I like. 




Product Description:
Jaminkyung is a Korean natural cosmetics company with its brand value set on achieving "lasting beauty" through a combination of naturally-derived quality ingredients and its sage & effective manufacturing technology.  The Gokmul Care Ultra Ampoule Toner is a 2Phase essence type toner with a blend of lightweight, whole grain-infused toner and deeply nourishing camellia oil in a 6:4 golden ratio it will deliver a rich moisture boost while controlling the moisture/oil balance for dry, sensitive skin.

I don't really see Memebox giving out toners in boxes very often so I'm glad I received one.  I've been wanting to get a new toner.  I am currently using a sample size of Tonymoly's Floria Nutra Energy Toner and it seems like it's not going down!

I absolutely love this toner!  I personally love the smell.  The first time I opened it, I smelled it constantly.  I told my mom to smell it and she says it smells like beer.  I don't think so, but ever since she did it started to smell like beer.  Haha.  The packaging is high quality, very sturdy.  




Product Description:
The 803 cream series is specifically designed so that each cream targets different parts of the face.  They're all enriched with shea butter, adenosine, adipophilin, niacinamide, and borphilin which have effective skin brightening and firming functions.  The Palzze Cream works to firm up and fill in the deepening 'smile lines' that run from nose down to corners of mouth. The Sam N Cream targets dry, sagging neckline with a blend of purified caffeine and collagen extracts.  The Young Cream is a moisture booster for face and body.

When I swatched it on my hand I definitely felt my hand firming up.  I do not like the smell of it.  It has a very earthy smell with something else that I can't really pick it out right now.  I'll probably give this away since I'm not that old yet.  Kinda wish I received a different 803 cream.




Product Description:
The Love Recipe Apple Mask is enriched with abundant apple extracts for soothing and balancing out rough skin texture and delivering moisture and nutrition into the skin.  The 3 Delight Hydro-gel masks are made from the "garden complex" containing more than 10 herbal ingredients from Mother Nature and each work to deeply hydrate, firm up, and relieve coarse, thirsty skin.



Ever since I've tried memebox's hydrogel masks I've been in love with them!  Actually I'll put a little review of meme hydrogel masks right now, after these masks.  I think I might switch to hydrogel masks now.

I think this is my second time trying out Sally's Box sheet masks.  I did end up liking the other Sally's Box mask, so hopefully I'll also end up liking these as much as the other one or love as much as  I love Meme Mask.



I'm seriously in love with Meme Hydrogel masks.  When I first used it, my skin was glowing for 2-3 days!  It made my skin look so pretty and clean.  My face also felt super soft.  I also just bought a box of Meme's Hydrogel masks yesterday along with Pony's starter kit.  Hopefully it'll arrive by this Saturday. :)  EDIT: it came in on Friday!  Click to read the review.)  There will be a review on their "I'm Meme" series and Pony's Glam palette 2 so look out for those this month. 




Product Description:
A stick-type perfume bar packaged into a lovely bunny design.  It's infused with a top note of lemon citrus, a middle not of frisia and white rose, and a bottom note of sandalwood and musk.

I've seen this product so many times on sites but never actually paid attention to it.  The packaging is super cute!  It smells very good and citrus.  I don't think the scent lasts that long, maybe only for about 3-5 hours.  Maybe even less.  I remember rubbing it on my wrists and behind my ears and when I wanted to smell the good citrus scent again but it was already gone.  :(  It goes on clear and glossy.  When it's absorbs into the skin the gloss will disappear. 





Product Description:
Abundant, cream-like foam bubbles penetrate deep into your pores, cleaning away any makeup residues, skin impurities, blackheads, and dead skin cells piled up and leaving your skin freshly cleaned, moist, and brighter overall.

This is nice!  I've been waiting for a foam cleanser in a memebox.  Perfect timing too!  I'm almost done with my Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam.  I bought it a little bit over a year ago on 08/05/2013 (looked at the date I ordered them, haha.)  There was a buy one get one free event but that site was a ripe off!  I could of bought two of them at a different site for a way cheaper price.  *sigh* That was when I just started shopping online.  I wish I knew where to shop back then. :(  Anyways, I do love the baking powder cf, but it's time to try out a new cleansing foam after using it over a full year.



I like this!  It smells great!  It has a citrus scent, sort of like lemon.  Aigoo, I can't describe scents at all. -__-  It foams up nicely too.  After washing my face it feels soft unlike my other foam cleanser.  The Etude House will actually make my skin feel dry and very clean.  It does a decent job taking off make up residue, especially old lip stick swatches.  I do like this cleanser.  I hope to hurry up and finish my other one so I can use this.  I feel this will last me about 6 months since it's only 75ml.  The Etude House is 170ml and it took me a little over a year to finish it.





Product Description:
Made up of pure Vitamin C concentrates, this tiny bottle of nutrients will replenish moisture balance, firm up fine wrinkles, and bright overall complexion with continuous application.

How to use:
Replace the flat lid of the serum with a taller lid with a pipette and a cap over top.  Squeeze out a penny-size amount and massage in onto clean face.

Wow, this packaging looks luxurious!  At first when I looked at the box I thought it looked like a perfume sample, ignoring the "bright & pure C serum" of course.  Again, I'm not that old yet so I'll also be giving this away to my mom or someone.  Actually I think I might keep this for myself. :P  I do like brightening products.

Overall Thoughts:  Umm... I don't really see a Thanksgiving theme, but I guess it makes me thankful for discovering what Memebox is.  Without Memebox I wouldn't be introduced to all of these different Korean brands that I did not know of.  Secondly and lastly I saved a lot of money shopping at Memebox.  Lol.  You know, Asians also like to save some cash.  ( >o< )

I am in love with the Cilo lipstick.  I want to get more of these lipsticks from that line.  I like and will use everything expect the 803 cream, other than that product I think this box is totally awesome.  Great job Memebox team!  If you got this box too, tell me how you like this box. :)



~~~~~~~~~

Memebox still has some VERY GREAT PRICED value sets that offer FREE SHIPPING!  All sets are also under $50.  Click here to visit their value sets and if you're in the US click here for their USA shop sets.  If you are not familiar with their USA shop you'll get free shipping if you spend more than $30.  Plus, the shipping only takes about 2 days, for me at least.  They also released a new box today, called Night Care and it also ships today!  How awesome it that!  I don't like waiting 2 months before it ships. ( -_- )

I don't know why, but there's not a $5 off coupon code this month.  Hopefully they'll bring it back soon, but I still have a $3 discount for you. :)



Here's a selca with the Clio lipstick tint on top of Etude House Dear Darling Lip Stain in Berry Red.   I asked my little sister which picture is prettier and she said "Aren't they the same picture?"  Lol.  She's so funny.  I guess my selcas look the same since I take them from the same angle. >_<  This is random, but don't you hate it when you look at your past pictures and like the lip color you're wearing but don't know what lip product you used?  Or is it just me?  Haha.

Also in the selca, I'm wearing 3CE Waterful Foundation in nude beige and their blusher in baby peach.  I am slowly working on the 3CE review.  It should be posted by the end of this month.  I'm just super busy with finals right now.  Six more months and then I'm done with high school!  YES!

Oh yes, I dyed my hair too!  It's not brassy anymore! ( ^o^) / *celebrate time! Woohoo!!  Never ever going ombre again.  I'm going to stay in the dark browns, hopefully.

Thank you so much for reading my review! :)
Until next time lovelys!
