Son: Mama, you got new sweets? For me or for Bhai?
Me: No beta. These aren’t sweets. These are little balls that can be used as soap.
Son: For a bath?
Son: I want the blue and the green one for my bath…
That’s the conversation that I had with my four year old while I was taking pictures for this review. Which product were we talking about? Read on….
I had ordered a value set of two Memeboxes, the Brightening Skincare box (reviewed here) and the Special #21 Hair & Body 3. I’ve probably bought the least number of Memeboxes, five to be exact, but I’m glad with my selection because all of them so far have got wonderful products. The reason why I bought the Hair & Body 3 was because it was described as containing products to give a head-to-toe Korean Spa experience!!!
Did the box contain all that it promised? Well, here’s what was in my Memebox Special #21 Hair & Body 3:
* Finco Body Toner Essence 200ml – Full size. $35
* Amini Conditioning Hair Shampoo & Rinse 30ml x 2 – Full size (huh???). $9.
* Amini Body Soap Bar 120g – Full size. $10.
* Cleosis Musk Perfume Body Mist 100ml – Full size. $28
* Shabath Hello Kitty Massage Towel 1 set -Full size. $3
* Shara Shara Dear Mademoiselle Hair Cap 15g & 5g – Full size $4
* CNKCOS Multi Cleanser Color Bean 120g – Full size. $17
Here’s a look at each product:
My body has terribly uneven skintone with different body parts all being different shades. What makes it worse is when I get tan lines (I tan in minutes even with sunscreen) Those take ages to fade making my uneven skintone even worse. This body toner essence is supposed to brighten up and even out the skin with continuous use. Plus, it’s free of animal oil, mineral oil, paraben, benzophenon and triethanolamine. Hope it performs as impressively as it claims to. I’m gonna start using this as soon as I finish off my The Body Shop Strawberry body butter.
AMINI CONDITIONING HAIR SHAMPOO AND RINSE
These are mentioned as full sized but is actually a “travel kit”. It has various organic extracts and natural essential oil. Shall be used on one of my weekend trips.
AMINI BODY SOAP BAR
This soap bar is supposed to rejuvenate the skin with its gentle and replenishing formula consisting of lavender, spicy cinnamon, peppermint and olive oil. I’m more of a shower gel person rather than soaps but the spicy cinnamon and peppermint sounds interesting.
A body mist is not a product I would have expected in a box that claimed to give you a Korean spa experience. I thought they would send out a body scrub or a body mask or perhaps even a massage oil. I haven’t opened this as yet so I don’t know what the fragrance is like but it’s a body mist so it definitely won’t be very intense.
Apparently, a massage towel is a Korean bath essential. You wear the massage towel over your hand like a glove, lather soap or body wash on it and gently scrub all over the body with it to exfoliate dead cells. Shall surely try it out.
Hair treatment and scalp essence hair cap! Yay. I’ve bought one such hair treatment from The Face Shop in Thailand but haven’t used it yet. Really looking forward to using this.
This is the product sonny and I were talking about. Don’t those little beans look exactly like candy? So cute and innovative!
Both boys enjoyed crushing the beans and bathing with them and wanted to have a competition to see who would crush the max number of these beans. So I quickly took away the bottle and hid it. This is going to come so handy during road trips because these beans can be used as makeup remover, facial cleanser, shampoo, body wash and hand wash.
I think except for the tiny bottles of Shampoo and Conditioner and the body mist (but I might change my opinion once I smell it), I liked everything in this box. Yet another packed, value-for-money box from Memebox. And each week they come out with so many new ones with such unique themes!!! Which has been your favourite till now?
