Memebox From Nature

I like to think no one is sick of the Memeboxes here on this blog yet - I know I can't get enough of them!
The one I have for you today is the Memebox From Nature ($39 + postage), which was one of the very first 'special' boxes they released (for those not already familiar, Memebox do a few different kind of boxes: the regular ones, with a variety of different surprise products - Memebox 15 is the next one available; or the specials that contain products collated around a particular theme).
This box, as the name suggests, bring you a range of beauty products derived from natural ingredients. There seems to have been a massive move in recent years away from overly chemical-laden products to more natural ones so if you are looking for more nature-friendly solutions to your beauty problems this could be your answer!
Here's what's inside this box:

The SN-T cream ($19) uses stem cells from yew trees for their regenerative properties - this should improve skin tone and help control breakouts.

I really like the packaging on the Tea Tree Blemish Solution Mask ($6 for two, both included in the box)  - the white Dr coat signifying 'Hey, this will heal you up good!'. I love the ultra-clean smell of tea tree, and this also contains aloe vera and golden larch bark extracts to calm, hydrate, repair and clarify your skin. I'm saving this one for when I really need it - which will probably be soon, I seem to be on a bit of a downward spiral this week!

The Lanoa Natural Soap ($17) is a bit of a funny one as even though it contains some lovely sounding ingredients (sulphur, shea butter, chamomile, lavender), I'd feel weird using proper solid soap on my face. I haven't done since I was little. This does promise to be extremely gentle though so perhaps I will give it a go!

The Ramosu 100% Propolic Extract Ampoule ($20) should prevent dehytration and give your sin a healthy glow! Just mix a drop or two of this in with your skin cream and you'll be well on your way to feeling healthy and hydrated! Propolis, if you didn't know (I didn't!) is a natural ingredient extracted from bee hives - you learn something new every day!

As well as all the lovely plants that provide us with amazing ingredients for our beauty products, we can't forget the less aesthetically pleasing, and this Snail Gommage Peeling Gel ($25) is a prime example! I wasn't overly sold on the idea of snail extract in my products but I let myself be broken in gently with the snail and honey handcream I got in a previous box, and it's so good it's helped soften me towards the idea of using snail products elsewhere! This is supposed to remove black heads and dead skin cells and clean out your pores, leaving you all smooth and nourished.

Though these boxes do tend to be skincare-heavy, it's not all you'll find in them and this one here has something for your hair thrown in too. The Moongkle Intense Repair System is a hair mask containing all kids of natural super-ingredients to smooth and nourish damaged hair, which I have plenty of! You get two of these in the box too, very generous!

I think I'm most looking forward to trying out the weird snail gel thing, 'cos it sounds gross and fun as well as very useful!
As I've found with the Memeboxes in the past, there's a great value-to-cost ratio here, and the products are always with full sized or very generous samples. My personal preference is for the slightly wackier themes (like the cocoa box I have on order), but if you have a good look around the site there's pretty much something for everyone! The only thing is, you sometimes have to act fast - the Memebox from Nature is now sadly sold out but there's plenty more to choose from instead!
If you don't fancy a full box of goodies but are after something specific they also carry a huge range of Korean skincare and makeup products in the Memeshop, with special offers changing regularly!
If you find something you like the look of you can use the code FPZ1PBG23L7G for $3 off your order until the end of the month!

  1. ok! I just have to order Memebox! It looks amazing!

  2. I am really keen to start a memebox subscription as they have some lovely bits in them but I have 3 boxes already, not sure a fourth one will be good for my bank balance! lol x

  3. I love the look of these boxes but I don't know if I can justify another beauty box subscription! Plus I don't think I'd be able to use up that much skincare stuff, maybe I'll give one of the make up ones a try :) The snail stuff sounds really weird :P

  4. I love the sound of the SN-T cream and the snail gel! Fab box :)
