Memebox LuckyBox #3 unboxing!!

beauty

I did a detailed explanation of MEMEBOX in my first box post here.

  • Memebox puts together a random assortment of the best Korean skincare/cosmetic products. Usually about 4-8 items and the Value is usually more than triple the amount you payed.
  • They offer discounts on top of the incredibly cheap price and you can sometimes get boxes for about $5.
  • Memebox is not a subscription company with a recurring charge every month. Instead you get to choose which boxes you would like to buy and which you would like to skip.
  • They release more than 1 box a month and they even sometimes release more than 5 a month but thats what makes it so fun to follow.

This is LuckyBox #3 ! Lucky Boxes are a compilation of the most popular products from past Memeboxes. This particular box has items from Memeboxes #2 – #8 and one of the items is a repeat from Luckybox #2.luk6

1. Dr.Jart V7 Eye Serum ~ Value $38

This Eye serum helps treat common darkness and puffiness. It was made of a complex of 7 vitamins, A, B3, B5, C, E, H,and F. Its supposed to brighten the skin and get rid of dark circles. I actually have the worst dark circles and I received two bottles of this {in lucky box #2 & #3} so I’ll be able to really test this out. This has no fragrance and so far I really like it!

luk102.Lanoa Natural Soap Sulfer 100g ~ This is full size and the Value is $12

Product Description 

This handmade soap is made from natural ingredients including 100% natural sulfur, Shea butter, chamomile and lavender. It is specially designed for sensitive and dry skin. It deeply nourishes, hydrates, and protects skin. This product is free of surfactants, hardeners, preservatives and any artificial fragrances. 

Its like this soap was specially made for me! Im really excited to try this and I hope all the claims are true. This is meant to be a face wash and It smells like most other natural products do. {Like plants and citrus}
luk93. LJH Dr’s care Vita Propolis Ampoule 5ml ~ Value $8.67

Product Description

The perfect combination of propolis and vitamins naturally enhances and improves your facial luminosity. The high concentrate of propolis in the ampoule hydrates, soothes and protects your skin. This product has been dermatologically tested for sensitive skin. 

How to use

Apply 2-3 drops on your face after moisturizer. It is highly recommended that you use this product in conjunction with a facial moisturizer or nourishing essence. 

I like the  Tea tree essence by LJH that I received in my lucky box #2 so I’m hoping that this is just as good. Its such a tiny sample that I’m not sure if I’ll actually be able to tell if it works or not from just using 5ml. I do like that even though its a baby sample that it still comes with a glass dropper.

luk24. Ryoe Jayang Yunmo Anti-hairloss hair pack 100ml ~ Value $5.33

Product Description

This Hair pack prevents against hair loss as it includes a high concentration of herbal extracts. The oriental herbal extracts will keep both your scalp and hair healthy and hydrated without leaving it oily. 
luk55. HeartFace Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack 20ml ~ Value $9.80

Product Description

Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack that keeps your skin moisturized all night long. Additionally, it minimizes your pores and controls sebum production while your asleep.

The Jar is slightly larger than a quarter but I think I can squeeze a months use out of it. It does have a fragrance but its not overpowering which is good since you will have to sleep with this on. It absorbs well into your skin and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy afterwards. Ive actually tried BOSCIA sleep mask and I found it was so greasy that lint was sticking to my face. { Ewww! }

luk46. Derma:B Daily Moisture Body Lotion 100ml ~ Value $4

Product Description

Derma:B daily moisture body lotion provides 24-hour hydration, leaving skin feeling both softer and smoother. Also, the natural ingredients of phytoncide calms irritated skin. 

I tried a tiny bit of this on my hands just now and even though it mentions that it contains natural ingredients, it doesn’t smell like it. The Lanoa soap smells natural and pleasant but this has a perfume scent. For those of you who don’t mind the fragrance then from the small amount I tested it doesn’t feel overly greasy. Ill be passing this along to someone else since I can’t stand the scent.

lukluk17. Holika Holika Skin & Good Cera Super Cream 10ml ~ Value $3.17

Product Description

This Ultra-hydrating cream not only hydrates the skin but also enhances the water-holding capacity of the skin, thanks to its powerful hydrating ingredients “ceramide” 

This sample is probably smaller than a quarter and in the second picture I show that the bottom is hollowed out slightly. I wouldn’t consider this a deluxe sample and I would have preferred a bigger sample of this instead of the Derma:B lotion. The full size versions of both creams cost about the same amount anyway.


luk7luk8
8. Miguhara B.P Cream 3ml x 2 ~ Value $3.70 each

Product Description 

This Dual-function cream serves both as a BB cream as well as a primer. It keeps skin silky and even-tones, while controlling excessive sebum through its oil-free formula.

I actually really like this because it feels like it just disappears into the skin and it gives a light coverage. The only downside is that you only get a small amount of product in these tiny samples. As you can see from the second photo, the product fills up less than half of the tube and that was before I opened it. This will only be enough product for maybe less than a week.

luk119.  Flower Men Energy Factory Moist Boosting Sheet Mask- Hyaluronic Acid 25g ~ Value $4 each

Product Description 

A super moist mask sheet that contains concentrated Hyaluronic acid plus its as big as PSY’s face, meaning double the pampering. 

How to use 

After apply toner, place mask sheet over your face evenly 

Remove sheet after 15-20 min

The mask is folded up in the bottom part of the Psy face and the rest is just empty. I was actually playing around with it. [You can poke out the eyes and pretend to be Psy lol ] I haven’t gotten around to using one of these since I just received this yesterday but I can’t wait to try it, I just hope its not too big.


This box had a total value of $96.37. I didnt pay much for this box either, maybe only $15 because of my points. This box would usually cost $23 plus around $7 shipping. Luckybox #3 had a lot of small samples and a few of them definitely weren’t deluxe. Although I can’t complain because I didnt pay much for it and even If I did pay full price the eye cream alone would more than cover the cost of the box.

 I Love Memebox ❤ and my next box is already on its way! Its going to be a Mask only Box! They already released a spoiler: Keyskin’s Gold Hydro Gel Eye & Spot Patch.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to tell me below!

MemeBox Luckybox #2

  • They release more than 1 box a month and they even sometimes release more than 5 a month but thats what makes it so fun to follow.

This is LuckyBox #2! Lucky Boxes are a compilation of the most popular products from past Memeboxes.

beauty1beauty71. Espoir Lip Gloss 4.4g ~ Value $15

You were randomly sent either the lip gloss or the lipstick in this box. I received the lip gloss in the color pk002 magic hour.  Its like a nude/mauve color and at first I didn’t think I would like it but it looks really nice on. I kinda wish I would have received the lipstick instead but It actually worked out in this case. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable on and they sent a very wearable color so I’m happy.
beauty62.Dr.G Bio-RTx Mentor Cream 20 ml ~ Value $14

I don’t know how this ended up being a popular item because it has so much fragrance. It smells exactly like my Living Proof Perfect Hair day hair styling treatment. I try to stay away from heavy fragrances in my skin care. For this item you were randomly sent either #3 which is for oily skin, #7  for damaged skin, or # 5 for dry skin. Memebox should have a profile to fill out so we can have more customized boxes. I’ll probably give this away since I have dry skin and this is specifically for oily skin.

 

beauty33. Dr.Jart V7 Eye Serum ~ Value $38

This Eye serum helps treat common darkness and puffiness. It was made of a complex of 7 vitamins, A, B3, B5, C, E, H,and F. Its supposed to brighten the skin and get rid of dark circles. I actually have the worst dark circles and I received two bottles of this {in lucky box #2 & #3} so I’ll be able to really test this out. This has no fragrance and so far I really like it!

beauty54.LJH Tea Tree 90 Essence 20ml ~ Value $12.80

 Product Description

      A lightly-textured tea tree oil formulated with sensitive skin in mind. Made from 90% tea tree extract, LHJ’s Tea tree essence 90 clears, moisturizes and brightens troubled skin, targeting acne and delivering nutrients deeply for a hydrated, vibrant complexion. key ingredients include sea buckthorn and Centella Asiatica, plants known to delay the skin maturation process and speed the healing of damaged tissue.

This may be my favorite item in the entire box! It definitely hydrates  and I’m actually hoping it will brighten my skin. I have a couple of dark patches that I’m hoping to get rid of. This absorbs almost instantly and doesn’t have any greasy residue left over. Everyone knows that tea tree helps treat acne so even if all it does is treat acne and hydrate my skin then its a win. 
beauty45. Nuganic Customized Sunblock Fresh SPF50pa+++ 40ml ~ Value $45

The first thing I noticed is that its only about half full and this is the full sized product. It was sealed but its hard to believe that anyone would pay $45 dollars for half of a tiny bottle of sunscreen. It also smells almost as bad as the Mentor cream. This Sunscreen claims to be a 3-in-1 sun protector with brightening and anti wrinkle properties. Im not going to totally dismiss this item until I try it and I will write an update as soon as I finish it.

beaty86. Miseenscene 2X curl Essence 30ml ~ Value $2

This is a leave in conditioner treatment that is supposed to provide volume and help dry damaged hair. you only need a small amount and you could apply this to damp or dry hair. I don’t see myself going out of my way to try and order this from Korea in the future. It does help tame frizz and hydrate but so does Its a 10 leave in conditioner.
beauty27. Mask Sheets Bio Medi-Curing Mask-Aqua Dressing 20ml ~ Value $3

Product Description

This mask hydrates and moisturizes  your skin to the fullest. It is a 100% coconut jelly mask, which gives your skin a “cool” feeling it also dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Coconut Bio Mask with Tomato 20ml ~ Value $3

Product Description

    This is a 100% coconut jelly mask combines with the super food: Tomato! Similarly, this mask gives your skin a “cool” feeling. It also dramatically reduces the appearance of any wrinkles.

I love face masks and I really can’t wait to try the Bio Medi-curing mask because its supposed to be hydrating and my dry skin needs all the hydration it can get.I also like that these are both made with coconut jelly because they sound like they are going to smell amazing and natural.


After I finish a couple of these products Ill make a detailed post of my thoughts.

They also sent me a cheat sheet with details on all the items they sent this month but while reading it I noticed a couple of misspelled words. It also said that the mentor cream was supposed to be applied to your hair when its clearly for your skin. I wish they would take more time writing these since this is the only way I’ll know the details about each product because most of the packaging is in Korean.

So far I really like Memebox and I think its so fun to try out new products which I usually wouldn’t be able to find on my own. Its also really affordable which is a plus because its hard to try new skincare products when they usually cost $50+. I feel like I may have already found a couple of favorite items in this box so far and I look forward to seeing whats inside my other boxes.

 

This Box had a total value of $132.80!!

Thank You for Reading!!! Tomorrow I will Be posting LuckyBox #3!

 

Memebox For Him GQ #1

memememe1

This is the Memebox Mens Edition GQ! It Includes 4 Full sized items and 5 Deluxe samples. Memebox is a Korean company that curates boxes based on different themes.

They Have 5 types of boxes Superboxes, Mini boxes, Naked, Memeboxes & lucky boxes. Regular Memeboxes usually have a high total value and they are a random assortment of beauty/skincare items. They Include Full sizes with a couple of deluxe sized samples (4-9 products total). Regular Memeboxes are always $23.

SuperBoxes are Usually brand themed or themed to specific beauty needs. They include all full sizes and range $32 – $7o. you don’t usually get as much bang for your buck with these.

Lucky Boxes are a way for people who just discovered Memebox to try the most popular items from past boxes. Usually Memeboxes sell out in days so this lets customers try Items they missed out on. Usually cost $23.

Mini Boxes were just released a couple of weeks ago. Its supposed to include 3-6 Deluxe samples and pouch samples. This box only costs $15 including shipping.

Naked Boxes are also a new type of box they just released which is only accessible if you were sent an email with a special link. These naked boxes aren’t a mystery like all of the other boxes. They list every item that will be included in the box and these usually cost $23. They released 7 of these boxes in a week and they sold out in hours.

Every Box is a mystery except the naked box and they sometimes release spoilers on there Facebook page. They don’t charge you automatically like most Subscription box companies. You get to pick and choose which boxes you would like to purchase and which you want to skip. Usually you have to preorder them in advanced since they sell out so quickly. I have to warn you that Memeboxes are really addicting because they have a great value and they help you explore the best Korean products. 🙂

Influenster ~ Viva Vox Box

influInfluenster is a great site that gives you points for doing surveys and reviews on products. Once you collect a certain amount of points they send you Free boxes with products to try. Once you receive your box you will have to share it on social media and review all the products. Its really easy and its one of the few legit sites for free goodies!

http://www.influenster.com

This is my first Box from Influenster and its called VivaVoxBox. Everything including shipping was absolutely free.influ1

influ5Pure Ice Nail polish in “Its Complicated” & “Afterhours” {$1.69}

I love both of these colors so much. I just had my nails done so I won’t be posting swatches for another couple of days.

influ2 Cetaphil Gently Cleansing Clothes 25 count Ultra soft {$5.99}

Today was my first time using these and it removed all my make up perfectly without any greasy residue. I can’t tell if it removes waterproof makeup since I don’t use any but it worked well on my regular make-up and my lip stain. Ill continue to use them and update this when I’ve tried them a few more times. Right now I use Neutrogena cleansing wipes in pink grapefruit and I can’t live without them.

Vaseline Spray & go Moisturizer {$7.99}

I love these commercials where the girl sprays the lotion all over and jumps into her clothes. 🙂 I was curious about this product but I never purchased it because I have a million lotions. Im always on the hunt for a lotion that is weightless and non-greasy. I can’t stand being greasy and sticky especially on hot days.

This should be the new way to apply lotion! I Love how fast it is to apply and it really does absorb in seconds. If you apply it just like the girl does in the commercial then you will have the perfect amount to moisturize your body without excess like you would if you were guessing the amount with the tube lotions. It comes in 3 different scents which are cocoa butter, aloe vera & oat. If they came out with a coconut scent I would be in love!

influ6NYC Proof twistable intense lip color {$2.99}

I’ve heard a lot of rave reviews about these Nyc twistable intense lip colors. I was curious about this product because its so cheap but I probably won’t buy this again. It isn’t a color I would choose for myself and when I wear a dark color I prefer it to be a stain. It smudges easily and Im always so scared that this hot pink color will end up smeared on my cheek or teeth.

The color is “south ferry berry” and the tube is a ruby red but when applied its more of a dark magenta.
influ3

The first drugstore mask I tried were the Freeman masks and they were the worst masks ever. I may have been allergic to the cucumber one because my face broke out in 1000 little bumps right after taking it off and the Dead sea mask smelled so purfumey that I had to wash my face 3 times afterward because the smell was bothering me so much.

Montagne Jeunesse Honey peel off mask

After that experience I was a scared to try these peel masks because I thought they would be the same. I read up on it a bit before applying it and it contains a lot of natural ingredients. It looks and smells almost completely like sweet honey. It dries clear with a slight yellow tint and peels off dead skin and blackheads. Its not a miracle product but its perfect to gently clear skin once a week and it only costs $2.49.

Shell Fuel rewards card

I actually have a costco membership so thats where I buy my gas.

I can’t wait to see what box I get chosen to sample next! I believe you need an invitation to join Influenster. If that the case just email me your email address and I’ll send you an invite. Joviestaceypearl@gmail.com 

Thank you for reading!!!

 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

If you Use a Friend code you get your first and fifth box FREE.

gbLittle Figgy went to the market is a blend of Soft apples, cranberries and diced figs. Any Combo with those delicious apple pieces is a hit for me but I also love the seeds in the sweet diced figs.

8/10

Garden of England is a Strawberry, apple, black currant mix I received in my first box and I was very happy to see it again because the only flavor I love more than the graze box apples are the strawberries. They are perfectly sweet and taste like natural fruit Leather or a gummy candy. This mix also includes black currants which offer a tart flavor to contrast all the sweet. This is my all time favorite!

10/10

Peach Cobbler is a mixture of peach strings , honey almond slivers, yogurt covered seeds, and amaretti drops{almond flavored mini cookies}. This is a way better flavor than the Key lime pie version I received in my March Box. The yogurt seeds feel like they melt in your mouth while the Amaretti drops add a little bit of crunch. The Peach strings are my favorite because they taste exactly like peach rings and I’m a sucker for peach rings!

7/10

When I Opened my box The first snack I tried were the Bonnie wee Oatbakes and I absolutely hated them.  Maybe the onion marmalade was just a little too shocking in a snack but I went back today to give it another shot. The oatcakes are cheese and chive flavor which go well with The caramelized onion marmalade. A little goes a long way with the marmalade because it has a strong onion flavor but its a bit too sweet for me.

Three hits and only one miss this month!  Of course I love fruit snacks so I personalized my profile towards more fruit but they have dozens of chips, chocolate, cookies, popcorn and nut snacks to choose from. Thats the Great feature of there website, you just “Trash” the snacks you know you won’t like and they will never send them to you.

 

Hope you liked this Graze box review and I would love for you to follow. To follow just scroll to the bottom of this page! Thank You for reading. Tomorrow I will Be posting my Ipsy Review.

naturebox4naturebox2I Loved the dehydrated Apples so much that I order them again { 1st Granny smith Apple Review here}  This Time I also Decided to Order the Fuji Apples because I wanted to know which one was better tasting. It was very close but After tasting both of them I think Granny Smith is still a bit better. If you like sweet go with the Fuji apples but if you like tart then go with Granny smith apple.

Fuji Apples : 9/10

I expected the south pacific plantains to taste exactly like all there other fruit snacks which is like real fruit. They taste more like original Lays potato chips which I don’t like very much to begin with. They are thinly sliced plantains, very lightly salted and they don’t taste at all like plantains. The Bag suggests you eat these with dip so maybe that would help the bland flavor. Maybe I’m just used to eating freshly fried plantains with sugar spinkled on top. YUM!

South Pacific Plantains: 5/10

Cal: 150 Serving Size: 25 chips

naturebox3Until My last Graze Review I’d never tried dehydrated pineapple. Im so glad I added these on to my box this month because they are unbelievable! They are perfectly sweet and not completely dehydrated so they are almost gummy. Im definitely going to order these again next month! I Only wish they would fill the bag more.

This is an almond cashew salsa flavored mix and Its seasoned with garlic,cilantro, lime juice, and paprika. This is the most flavorful nut mix that I’ve tried so far.  You can really taste the garlic and feel the heat of the paprika.

 I actually ordered Tuscan Summer mix but they were sold out of it at the last minute and sent me this random snack instead. Its a BBQ mix of flavored almonds , cashews, peanuts, flax & chai seeds. I Honestly can’t taste any BBQ flavor what so ever but at least they sent me nut mix this time. I hope this doesn’t happen again next month because I was really excited to try the the herby Italian flavored summer mix.

Lone Star Snack Mix:3/10

 I really liked this PB&J Granola! Its a mixture of soft oat  peanut butter granola with strawberries and raisins mixed in. Its perfect when your on the go and craving a PB&J.

PB&J Granola: 7/10

The Santa fe corn stix have a way better salsa flavor than the salsa spiced snack mix. They taste a lot like Fritos because they are corn based and there really bursting with flavor! I love this snack and will probably order them again. These are a great chip alternative with Half the calories. This is one of four snacks I added onto my box this month. They charge an extra $3 per add-on.

Santa Fe Corn Stix:8/10

I Finally got my Taj Mahal snack mix! I absolutely love curry and I was so excited to try this mix. It was exactly what I expected, delicious sweet curry flavored Sunflower Seeds, Almonds, Raisins, flax seeds, sesame seeds & bits of mango. 

Taj Mahal Snack Mix:9/10

Cal:160 Serving Size:1/4 cup

Im Really happy with all my snacks this month except the Lone star mix.

I’m really excited to order all my favorite snacks next month.They also just added a new snack called Carrot & Strawberry chews which I’m curious about. What did you think of this months box?

Marine Microspheres: Encapsulated spheres deeply penetrate the skin’s surface and swell with the body’s natural moisture to immediately plump the appearance of fine lines from within.

Sea Nutrient Barrier: Powerful fusion of algae and oat extract creates a light veil on the skin, pulling surface cells closer together for an instant micro-lifting effect.

It Sounds promising and Im looking forward to trying it especially since it claims to mimic your natural oils. It also has a gel consistency and is actually quite light on the skin which I love.

This Anemone scented soy candle from Illume 1 oz has a very masculine cologne kind of scent but I surprisingly like it.  Its supposed to be citrus blossoms & crisp apple which are blended with ethereal oak moss, oriental clove, and a hint of patchouli. This Candle has about $3 Value.sample6

 

This Box had a Total value of $48 Considering that I only Payed $15 I think this is a great value. This will be my new favorite if they continue sending such amazing boxes. Not only does it have a high value but its also filled with products I could see myself loving.
