Memebox - Korea's Most Wanted 2

Well it's another Monday and that means, based on the rules imposed on me by Daniella, that it's time for another Memebox Monday post, wooo! The one I have for you today is the Koreas Most Wanted 2 box - filled with exciting goodies dug up by Memebox Korea. Here's everything that came in this box - 


elRoel Tone Up Starter SPF50+ Green ($43) - I'd actually put off using this for a while as I'd read the name and assumed it was just sun block which I thought I'd put aside until summer when I need it more. Turns out it's more like a primer? It's slightly green-tinted to counteract any redness in your face so brightens the complexion, fills in lines and wrinkles and makes a great make up base, as well as providing that great level of SPF. 


Hiello Blooming Multi Firming Cream ($50) - An anti-wrinkle moisturising cream designed to smooth out sagging skin, brighten up a dull complexion and rejuvenate stressed-out skin. I've been using this at least once daily for the last couple of weeks and find it really hydrating and pleasant to use - though it's quite rich so might suit many people better as a night-time moisturiser. In fact the card that comes with the box says you can also use this an an overnight treatment but applying a thick layer before bed! 




LadyKin One Touch Bling Glow Lipstick ($11) - If I'd just read the available shade names that popped up in these boxes I'd definitely have preferred to receive the Chic Red or Deep Plum Burgundy over the Fall Rose that appeared in my box, and now I'm so glad I ended up with the one I did! I'm actually nuts about this colour - I don't have anything like it in my collection and it's such a lovely warm shade. Pigmented but perfectly suitable for daytime use, you could wear this anywhere. You only need a quick swipe of this to colour your lips, and it's not drying at all. 


Kskin Emu Leg R-Free Massage Cream ($46) - Made from 'emu oil' - can this be real oil from real emus? I've never heard of such a thing, but then this also contains snail mucus extracts so really nothing should surprise me. This is used to soothe, moisturise and de-stress tired legs. As a tired-legged lass, I've been loving this. I'm not sure if it's the actual cream or just the amazing smell (a sort of medicinal menthol?) that makes my legs feel so nice but it definitely does! 


The Face Shop Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Essence ($9) - I'll admit that I don't really understand all of the Korean skin care stages, but I've been using this somewhere in between cleansing and moisturising and it seems to be working out ok for me! It contains calendula extracts and hyaluronic acid to moisturise and smooth uneven skin tone. 


The Tang Tang Kissy Skin Therapy Peeling Wash ($23) - Most of my favourite meme discoveries come in the way of weird skin-washing stuff and this fits firmly in that category. You spread the gel all over your face, wait 40 seconds or so until it starts to dry and then give it all a rub. The effect is not entirely unlike if you rubbed half-dried pva glue off your skin, and you are left with sort of rubbery granules of product/dead/skin/grossness. Then just rinse off with warm water and you are all set! It's that nice balance of being an interesting and different product but still seeming effective, I think its great! 

So that's all of my box! At $32 + postage full price it was one of the more expensive boxes, but if you add up all the RRPs on those products then it sure looks like good value! There's some great products too, which is the most important thing! This box is now sadly sold out and it looks like there's not a whole lot in the way of other boxes to buy instead at the moment but hopefully that just means Memebox are working on some really awesome ones for the new year! In the meantime though there's loads of ace products as well as the ones above to browse through.... it's hard to know where to start!
