Memebox Step By Step Skin Care Review & Unboxing

Hello there!  Long time no post! :)  This month has been super busy for me.  I should of never taken AP Photography.  There's a whole bunch of assignments and on top of that, I had a lots of tests to study for.  Arg, last year of high school is stressful.

Anyways, today I will be reviewing the Step By Step Skincare box from Memebox.  I found this box really helpful because the information card lists the items from the first step to the last step of skincare.  When I first got into skincare I would apply anything in any order.  *sigh*  Wished I knew the order of skincare earlier.  Haha.  Don't know the order of skincare?  Keep reading! ^o^ )/


Product Description
Fancy a bottle of mojito for your skin? This unique facial toner is formulated with all the ingredients found in a glass of mojito – lime, sugar cane, sparkling mineral water, apple, and peppermint leaf juice! The lime complex will prevent skin impurities from clogging up the pores and the mineral-rich components will refresh and deliver abundant nutrients to dry, tired skin.

How to use
Use it right after cleansing as the very 1st step into skincare.

I think this is my second Mizon item that I own.  This toner absorbs fast and it smells really good.  I love citruis scents.  I don't see an effect on my skin yet.  But I shall keep using this and update how this product performance is later. ;)

Product Description
An anti-aging facial essence made with a special idebenone formula for effectively treating fine lines & wrinkles as well as brightening up uneven and dulled complexion.

How to use
After toner application, apply a dime-size amount of essence evenly over face and pat it in for full absorbance.

The packaging feels so luxury.  You can totally feel that it's not a cheap product.  The product is yellow, I think I was reading some reviews about gold in this product?  I don't know.  Anyways, it blends into the skin easily and absorbs fast.  The texture is smooth and thin.

I'm not really into anti-aging products yet, but you can ever start too soon.  I noticed that I do have some lines under my eyes.  NOT GOOD AT ALL.  Aigoo.  Am I rubbing my eye make up off too hard?  I'm starting to use q tips to remove my eye make up.

Product Description
A highly concentrated facial ampoule enriched with nutrition-rich royal jelly and royal honey extracts. It will soothe, moisturize, and strengthen skin’s natural protective barrier.

How to use
After essence application, apply a couple drops of ampoule evenly over face and pat it in for full absorbance.

Such a cute box!  It's shaped like a hexagon, kind of like a bee's nest of honey.  

The texture is on the thicker side but is easy to spread.  It takes a bit of time to absorb into the skin.  It also leaves the skin feeling tacky. What I don't like about the product is the smell.  It has a medicine like scent, but I'm not all that picky about it.

Product Description
Enriched with propolis extracts, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and various fruit & nut extracts, this Special Care Mask helps replenish, repair, protect and soothe skin against dehydration and aging, for a much softer and more luminous complexion.

How to use
Cleanse face and apply toner with a cotton pad. Rest for 15~20 minutes, remove mask, and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbance.

I thought I needed to buy more sheet masks, but I looked at my pile and noticed that I don't need to.  I still have a pack of Meme Hydrogel masks left to use.  I highly recommend those masks!  Anyways, on to this mask.  Boy, I am surprised!  I thought it was going to be a regular cotton mask but I was wrong.  Usually the masks are too big and have a lot of air bubbles when I place it on my face.  But this mask fits my face PERFECTLY!  So surprised.  The mask is cotton, but for some reason it feels a lot softer than the other cotton masks I've used.  

While using this mask, my face felt a stinging sensation for some reason.  This never happened before.  Maybe because of the Mizon toner?  I applied it before I applied the mask.  After I took off the mask, my face looked bright and health.  When I woke up in the morning, my face still look bright.  It also felt firm.

Product Description
A moisturizing water-drop type facial cream. This Rice Water Double Action is a smart, multi-functional cream for hydrating, tone brightening, and wrinkle refining. Its formula includes rice bran water, adenosine, cacao extracts, and various herbal ingredients.

How to use
Apply directly to face and pat it in for full absorbance.

I think this is my favorite product in the box.  I love creams.  The texture is thin and it blends easily into the skin.  It feels like water once I start spreading it into my face.  It's also doesn't make the skin feel tacky or sticky at all.  My skin feels sooooo smooth after using it.  I applied this after the ampoule which was sticky and it totally got rid of that sticky feeling.  Plus this cream has a nice scent to it as well.  Love this product.

I apply this cream before I leave almost every morning and it really keeps my face moisturized.

Product Description
A mineral oil free sunscreen that works to color control uneven skin tone and to protect skin from UV exposure. It’s extremely gentle and it leaves skin silky soft and smooth, with a healthy glow.

How to use
Apply directly to face at the very end of skincare routine.

The cream is thick and easy to blend.  What I don't like about this sun screen is that it leaves a white cast on the skin.  After letting it sit for about five minutes the white kind of faded.  The texture gets less sticky when it starts to absorb into the skin.  It made my skin lighter which is not good because I already use a light bb cream/foundation which will make me look even more dead than I would usually look.

Overall it's a great box.  It has everything!  Great for beginners because it has every step of skincare products listed in order.  The Rice Water Cream and mask I love.  Kind of wished they placed another mask in there.  Sun screen I'm not really a fan of since it lightens my face.  Is it a physical sun screen?  In conclusion, this box is one of my most liked boxes. ^__^

Selca of using all skincare products!  I love skincare.  A person can never have too many skincare products. ;)  Spent my weekend reviewing circle lens and finishing up some drafts.  I think I found my new eyebrow look.  Isn't that lip color pretty? *o*  It's Juliet from Meme I'm Lip Crayon.  I really want to get the full set of their eyeliners, cream shadows, and lip products.  I really need to start getting on tumblr again.  Anyways I will be posting a lifestyle and eyelash guide posts soon so if you're interested keep a look out for those. :)

Thank you so much for reading!  Just recently they released a quad with Stephanie Villa aka Soothing Sista!  I will be reviewing it soon so look out for that soon too.  Hopefully I will post my 3CE products review soon.  I'm slowly working on it. 

Until next time. ^__^
