After quite a disappointing international box yesterday, here’s another international box that has almost all full sized products and is great value for money. For this box too, the credit (my wallet would prefer the word blame…lol) goes to Renu of mybeautyjunction.com since she is the one who has “discovered” Meme boxes and tempted us with the contents of the ones she has ordered.
“Memebox from Nature is is a box full of carefully selected products that only contain ingredients from the nature.” Here’s what I got in my box.
Please pardon the shadows in the pictures. The boys were just not ready to sleep though they were exhausted after watching the match at the stadium and celebrating Mumbai Indians’ win. I had to quickly take the pics without thinking about the lighting, background etc.
Anyway, coming back to the box, it contained:
* SN-T Goddess Cream 50ml ($19)
* Dewytree Tea Tree Blemish Solution Mask 27g x 2 ($6)
* Lanoa Natural Soap – Sulfur 100g ($17)
* Ramosu 100% Propolis Extract Ampoule 10ml ($20)
* Swanicoco Cell Emotion Snail Gommage Peeling 100ml ($25)
* Moongkle Nutrition Intensive Repair System 25g x 2 (price not mentioned)
Notice the quantities of each product as compared with the 10ml/15ml of A Beautiful World’s sampler box? And the Memebox box costs $39 and I had got some points for joining. With the shipping, the box cost me approx $42 which is around ₹2500. Again, see the difference with ABW??
Well, here are the products:
SN-T Goddess Cream
This cream has stem cells from the Yew tree and is supposed to hydrate, revitalise and sooth troubled skin. Though it says cream, this is actually a very lightweight gel-creme that’s more gel than creme. While I don’t really believe that plant stem cells can do much for human skin, especially since it’s only applied externally, the texture is lovely and I’m looking forward to using this.
Dewytree Tea Tree Blemish Solution Mask
It’s rainin masks, hallelujah… I have so many sheet masks lined up now to try out! This one’s packed with tea tree leaf extracts, aloe vera and patented golden larch bark extracts and claims to hydrate, calm, repair and clarify the skin and enhance the skin’s healing capability. Interesting.
Lanoa Natural Soap – Sulfur
This all natural soap bar is made from sulfur, shea butter, chamomile and lavender concentrations which are extremely gentle and effective for caring sensitive skin with a low level of elasticity and immunity.
I don’t think my skin is sensitive but yes, it is more prone to breakouts these days than it used to be. Let’s see how this one soap helps…
Ramosu 100% Propolis Extract Ampoule
Propolis is a natural ingredient extracted only in small quantities from bee hives. A single drop of this extract is said to deeply hydrate and give the skin a youthful glow. It also claims to create a barrier on the top layer of the skin to maintain a healthy balance of moisture and nutrition within. Sounds wonderful. Hope it performs too.
Swanicoco Cell Emotion Gommage Peeling
This scrub/peel has snail mucus extract (the slime that the snail leaves behind). Now that sounds really gross and and puts me off from even trying it. However, it claims to be a non-toxic peeling gel that gently yet thoroughly removes all blackheads, dead skin cells and residues in the pores without irritating sensitive skin. The snail mucus extract soothes and nourishes the skin and brings back the glow.
Moongkle Nutrition Intensive Repair System
Finally something for the hair! The product’s outer carton as well as the tubes have nothing nothing written on them in English. The only information is what’s given in the product card and from that, these appear to be hair masks. Providing delicate care for both hair and scalp, this product is enriched with high concentrates of protein amino acid which effectively soothes damaged hair and gives deep nourishment. The combination of 11different kinds of oriental medicine extracts, argan oil, jojoba oil and camellia oil create a protective barrier over the hair. Can’t wait to try these out on my fried and frizzled hair.
You know, I actually feel like showing this Memebox to the people at A Beautiful World and telling them “Look, this is what a beauty box should be like”. Actually, loads of “beauty boxes” need to learn a lesson from Memebox. I truly loved this box but no matter how tempting the whole grains and oriental medicines boxes might be, I’m going to control myself. Because I seriously have loads of stuff to use up first.
So, what do you think of the products I got in my Memebox from Nature?
