Memebox - My Cute Wishlist 2

The first My Cute Wishlist box was one of my favourite ever offerings from Memebox, so of course I had very high expectations for this one!
Unfortunately, while there's some nice stuff in here, it didn't quite reach the dizzying heights of cuteness that the first one did, but guess you can't win them all! Wanna peek at what I did get?

Sally's Box Friendly Berry Berry Lip Patch ($3) - It is sorta cut, I'll give them that. Little Sally with all her masses of hair has been popping up quite often in these boxes recently and the packaging generally is fairly adorable. I've collected a couple of these lip patch things now and am yet to use one - I promise I will try one this week!

It's Skin Babyface Petit Blusher ($7) - Ok so this is definitely really cute too! This appeared in one of four colour choices and though I don't really know if the lavender one will suit me I'm really glad I got this one as it's so different from anything else I have. Very very sweet.

RoseMine Perfumed Hand Cream ($12) - It's a pretty thing for sure, though I don't know if I'd have used the word 'cute'. I do like RoseMine products and their Cath-Kidsonesque packaging, but the scent I received - Nana's Lily - doesn't sound massively appealing. Not yet tested it or even sniffed it properly as it's all foil sealed up and I'm trying to finish some of my on-the-go handcreams before opening any more!

Evas Vitamin Cleansing Dessert ($18) - I've not really tried this properly to give it a full review but, intrigued, I've just wandered to the bathroom at work to have a surreptitious play with it - so glad no one spotted me! It's a thick creamy cleanser (mine is the Red Wine variety but others got lemon on berry) that gives a pore-deep clean. The bit of my face I just tried this on feels great so I'm looking forward to testing it properly!

SaintPeau Collagen Pudding Sleeping Pack ($36) - The problem with sleeping packs is I leave them right next to my bed to put them on before sleepytime, only to wake up in the morning to remember I never applied it. This one, if I ever remember to use it, promises radiant and more youthful looking skin.

The YEON Style Y Fruity Swirl Lip Balm ($8) - like the hand cream above, I've kept this one sealed to prevent me from using it out of convenience rather than one of the many other lip balms I already have open. I got the 'lime twist' version, though it also comes in orange and strawberry varieties.

See, it's not a bad box at all, has some really nice items and I definitely shouldn't complain... it just feels a little flat after the last My Cute Wishlist Box. Like, I'm sure the lip balm above is nice and everything but it can't be the cutest lip balm in Korea, as I'm pretty sure I've seen cuter ones in the market in Bradford.... Still, for a $23 box the value of the products stacks up pretty well!
This box, and the third Cute Wishlist box have already sold out but I've heard rumours that Memebox are going to make these a pretty regular thing so fingers crossed for the future ones! In the meantime though, there's still plenty to choose from on the site! I'm currently most excited about the Wine and Cheese Cosmetics Box and the Chocolate Mania one!
And to tempt you even further, if you enter BZOP at the checkout there's $5 off up to the end of September! What better excuse could you need?
