Memebox Mini #1 Review

I did a detailed explanation of MEMEBOX in my first box post here.mini2

This is the 1st of 3 mini Memeboxes they released so far. These boxes are supposed to contain 3-6 beauty product samples and foil packets from Korea. I had to try this box since it was only $15 including shipping and I also purchased another as a gift for my friend. This box looks a lot like a Sample Society box or Birchbox.

 

Below on the right is the original sized Memebox and of the left is the Mini Box.mini1.Holika Holika Skin & Good Cera Super Cream 4ml

Value: $4.50

Product details: This super hydrating cream lasting for over 72 hours is made from purely ceramide and arugula extracts. Frist, ceramide is one of the three main components of our skin cells and works to protect our skin and prevent moisture from escaping. The arugula extracts also create a protective barrier over your skin for strengthening and reviving healthier looking complexion.

Please excuse the cat fur lol This is a repeat from one of my lucky boxes and I kind of wish they brought something new and exciting in for the first mini box.

This is a very rich cream that left my face feeling slightly greasy but I’m hoping it will help with my dry patches. You only need a very small amount so this may last longer than I thought.

luk2.Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB spf 30 PA++ 5ml

Value: $9

Product Description:An entire bottle full of nutrition of an ampoule, this highly enriched Ampoule BB offers strengthening skincare effects as well as anti-wrinkle functions. Packed with extracts from royal jelly and tabebuia avellaneda, it will deliver rich nutrition and deep relief to your skin. Its light, oil-based texture will glide on your skin as if wrapping the skin with silk or velvet for a much brightening, glowing complexion.

I love that even though its a tiny sample they still put it in a glass dropper. Its so cute and when I finish all the BB cream I can fill the dropper with something else. ^.^

mini43. A true Black Tea All day long Sun cream 10ml

Value: $7.80

Product description: Made from Ronde Du Soleil Blending of black tea, orange zest and cinnamon, This long-lasting sun cream will protect,soothe and hydrate your skin all day long.

This has a strong floral fragrance that I just can’t stand and I wouldn’t put anything with this much fragrance on my face. I’ll probably just give this to my mom since she loves floral scents. 
mini54.Botanic Hill Boh Moist Radiant Youth Ampoule Essence 5ml &

Botanic Hill Boh Moist Youth Ampoule Essence 4ml

Value $4 each

Product decryption:Botanic Hill’s Popular moist youth & radiant youth ampoule essences will work to nullify signs of fine wrinkles and to brighten up your overall skin tone for a younger looking, more radiant complexion. 

These were also a repeat from a past box. These smell like rose and I usually don’t like floral scents but so far it isn’t too overpowering. mini15.Verikos Ultra Matte Velvet Primer 3ml

Value:$3.90

Product Description:The Perfect Primer for oily skin types, Verikos ultra matte velvet primer will softly yet thoroughly smooth out your uneven skin texture covering and filling in all visible pores and fine lines on your face. It also helps maintain moisture/oil balance and evens out your complexion with vitamin A and Vitamin E ingredients.

I love the way this primer feels so silky.

They also Sent me 2 foil packets of Witch’s Pouch Real skin Moisture Ampoule base.

This item wasn’t listed on the information card but I think its just a moisturizing serum you can use before make-up.

mini7The mini box has a total value of $33.20. Everything in this box was no bigger than my pinky and although it was only $15 I think I’ll just stick to the regular memeboxes. I wish they would have included at least one deluxish sample because this box lacked excitement. I thought since the regular memeboxes usually have a crazy value then the mini boxes would too.  Maybe If your new to memebox and just want to try out some korean goodies then this mini box is perfect especially if you use your points.

Loot Crate ~ March 2014

Loot crate is a monthly subscription box full of geek and gamer gear. Each month they hand-pick 6-7 items that include t-shirts, stickers, collectables and they are kept secret until they get delivered.

This subscription costs $13.37 + $6 for shipping for a total of $19.37 and even cheaper if you order 3 months together.

Ive actually had my loot crate box for about a week or so now and haven’t gotten around to making the review because the last two boxes have been kind of eh. They are themed to a particular show or game thats really new or unpopular in my opinion. Usually the boxes have more variety so I like at least one item A lot so it makes the box worth the $19.97 but the last 2 months they are really focusing on one specific company. This is my last loot crate because I canceled and switched over to Nerdblock. 

marlmarl1I guess Im a little spoiled because I get a lot of this kind of stuff for free at conventions like the wrist band, fridge magnet and the lanyard especially for new games. Even though its probably a great game I just haven’t gotten around to playing it and I’m sure a lot of people subscribed to loot crate haven’t played it either.

marl2In the picture above is a Premium strategy eGuide & Attack on Titalfall Magnet.

They also included a TitanFall Shirt. Its cool to get a shirt but I haven’t played the game yet since it was just release this month. For those of you who are fans this is an Exclusive TitanFall t-shirt which is only available to Looters.
marl4Another Big item in the box is this Attack On titan Manga:1 & TitanFall Lanyard. Im glad its the first addition since I’m not familiar with this manga either I can start from the beginning and see how it is. Although I would have preferred something I already Loved.

I guess this is probably the best Box ever for people who love this new game but It just didnt do it for me but I’m really excited about Nerdblock next month!

Thank you for Reading!

 

NatureBox Review ~ February 2014

I decided to try NatureBox this month because my first box was 50% off and I’m a sucker for a good deal.

I don’t eat very healthy and I’m just going to say it … I’m kinda cheap. I never thought I would end up sticking with the subscription to NatureBox but After My first box I became hooked!

nature

There are 3 Boxes to choose from.

  • Nature box deluxe~ $19.95 Comes with 5 full snack bags {you choose from the dozens of different snacks they have}
  • Happy Snacker~ $29.95 Comes with 10 Full sized snack bags{5 different snacks/ 2 of each snack=10 snacks total} This is the one I ordered.
  • Smart Snacker ~ $49.95 Comes with 20 Full sized Snack bags {5 different snacks/4 packages of each snack =20 snacks}

My box came with 11 packages of snacks but I ate 2 as soon as it arrived! {so they aren’t in the picture but they were duplicates anyway}

Lets Start with my bonus snack! They included a extra surprise snack … isn’t that nice.

My bonus snack was the Everything bagel stix. These are a vegan sesame stick with poppy seeds, garlic and onions.

These are garlic and onion flavored cracker stick. They are very crunchy, filling and pretty good when your craving a savory snack.

Serving size:1/3 cup Cal:170

I also chose the Dried California Peaches because they were on the NatureBox favorite list.

They are Obviously dehydrated peaches. I didn’t care for them {they smell so awful} and wouldn’t order them again.

Serving size:5 peaches cal:100

natureboxI had to order The Chipotle Maple almonds because they are so weird!

I think these are a really good deal considering that your paying only about $3 per snack and at my local sprouts flavored almonds are $13 a LB.

These are my Favorite because they taste like sweet maple and then POW! the spicy chipotle kicks in. 🙂

Serving size:1/4 cup cal:170

naturebox1

Pear Praline crunch is a sweet pear flavored mixture of pecans and cashews. They taste Like diet sweetener so it takes a little time to get used to them. I think without the pear flavor these would taste better. I gave these away and I won’t be ordering these again either.

Serving size:1/4 cup cal: 160

naturebox2Cashew Power Clusters

These just taste like a cashew power bar with a hint of sugar. Yummy!

Serving Size:1/4 cup Cal:150

naturebox3

Dried Granny Smith Apples

These are So delicious!! They are sweet, tart and taste exactly like an apple. Unlike dried bananas and peaches these are still refreshingly delectable. They are almost like chips but a little chewy {in a good way}

I could easily polish these off 10 min…. who am I kidding 5

Serving size: 10 rings Cal:100
naturebox5

I no longer reach for chips and candy because I have these snacks now! Hopefully soon Ill combine Healthy eating with exercise and lose a little weight. {This is a good start}
