Memebox Hair and Body #2 Review

There is no such thing (yet) as too many Memeboxes!  My Memebox Hair and Body 2 arrived today and I was SO excited I actually ran out to the DHL guy instead of making him come to the door.  Yep.  I did that.
This is my first Memebox Hair and Body, I didn't get the first one but I was a teensy bit jealous of what I saw in there!  So I jumped on the opportunity to get #2 for $23.  Each Memebox has an information card, which is good because otherwise I wouldn't know how to use half of this stuff!  I can't read Korean yet.
Memebox Hair and Body 2 has 7 products in it, including travel size tubes of theSpa Vita Berry Shampoo and Treatment which was the spoiler.  At least this box had the item it was supposed to! I'm still grumpy about the Office Essentials box.  You can read about that here.
Kocostar Foot Therapy-  This is a pair of translucent socks that you wear and then all the skin peels off your foot.  You wear this for about an hour and a half and then the dead skin will peel off within the next three days.  Ew!! Gross!! And I'm totally using it!  I just wish there were two of these.

Label Young Shocking Holjjuki-100ml-Full Size-  This is a body slimming cream.  I'm not sure that it actually does anything other than moisturize?  It has green tea and algae extracts in it.  I feel like all it probably does is suck the water out of your skin?  Which is the opposite of moisturizing, probably.  I don't know.  It says don't apply too much in one area because it can get red from a thermal effect.  Hmm...  I don't think this is for me.
Spa Vita Berry Shampoo and Treatment-30ml-Travel Size- Packed with vitamins and antioxidant this shampoo and conditioner contains the extracts of ten different kinds of berries.  I hope it makes my hair smell like berries.

Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Argan Oil Essence-60ml-FullSize-  This is a full size product and offers instantly delivered nutrition via argan oil essence.  This will hydrate and bring back a healthy glow.  You can use thisas the last stage of your hair routine or during the day on dry hair.  Interesting!  I will try this.
Evas Cosmetics Body Net 7Days Project-200ml-Full Size-This is a randomly selected scent from grapefruit, rose, deep sea water, iris, berry complex, honey and phytoncide.  Well, I'm glad I got Berry and not phytoncide, whatever that is!  Also, is anyone else thinking this might be in the Grapefruit and Rose Scentboxes?!  This is a body wash!  Yay!  I was hoping we would get one!  It smells very good, too.

Vidanail Lvida Lavender Oil-10ml- Full size.  This is Lavender oil for use on your nails and cuticles.  I can't use it because I'm allergic (Noooo!!).  This is the most beautiful bottle ever.  I had to take another picture of it.
I kind of want to keep it because it is so pretty but since I have no use for it, I will let someone else have the fun and beautifulness of this bottle on their shelf.

VERDICT:  Sadly, this might be my least favorite Memebox.  I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I'm just not into my hair.  This had four full size products, two deluxe size and one foot mask for contents.  That is excellent in terms of product value.  There is something for your nails, feet, 2 things for your body and three for your hair!  So they really stuck with the theme of the box and I can't fault them for that.
I'm super happy to have the body wash and the foot mask (I still think there should be two... Am I sounding like a broken record yet?).  I'll use some of the hair bits.  The Spa Vita Berry smells so good I wish I could eat it.  I can only imagine how glorious my hair is going to smell!  The body slimming lotion is not for me.  I'm not a believer in slimming creams but I'm sure someone else would love to have it.  And the nail oil?? I'm SO sad I'm allergic to lavender!  I still like the box and I think its got great variety and value as well but it's just not my favorite.

**Update**
I have now tried the Vita Berry Shampoo and Conditioner and the Body Wash.  Sadly, the body wash is kinda cheap and while it smells good, the scent doesn't last past the shower on your skin.  The Shampoo has a wonderful scent which also doesn't carry over and it did not agree with my hair at all.  It made it feel like straw and that was *with* using the conditioner.  Hopefully, this was just my hair and not everyones, though.

What about you?  What do you think?  If you got both Hair and Body Memeboxes, which one do you think is better?

  2. I likd the previous one better but I'm glad you like this one :D also be happy you allergic to lavender this time because that stuff smells like toilet refresher xD I'm really curious about the footmask. I do like the slimming gel and I don't like the berry scents.. the other way around eh ;) haha

  3. I received this box today and whilst there is some nice stuff in there and it all smells lovely and floral, the first hair & body wash was much, much better (and a way higher value too). What a shame that the shampoo sample is so tiny, when they spoilered it I thought it was going to be the full size set but this is only enough for a couple of washes. The slimming cream is just silly, do they really imagine we are going to look like the picture on the box if we use it?

    However, the lavender nail oil is lovely, the shower gel smells great (I got Iris), foot mask will be fun to use and the hair treatment smells...erm...interesting

    1. I thought the shampoo would be full size, too! And I agree that the Slimming cream is ridiculous but some people love that stuff. I'm way too practical and realistic for that kind of thing. Didnt they have something sort of like that in the first box? A pack of some sort? I was really hoping for a hair steam pack, just to try it. But I'm sure it will be in another box soon enough.
      I'm glad you didn't get the phytoncide scented shower gel although I'm really curious to know what on earth it smells like :D

  4. I can't wait to try the foot therapy either! Something about dead skin sloughing off that makes me wanna witness it.. I'm totally in love with the Vita Berry scent! I just wish they sent a bigger bottle!

    1. I wish it was, too! I have pretty long hair and I used it today. I think maybe its got three uses. :( However, I don't think I love it. I do like the conditioner/treatment, though! I forgot to try the Salon green label stuff. Tomorrow :D

  5. I got this one as my first memebox and very impressed. Have the foot mask on right now, feels a bit odd but hopefully it works wonders! X

    1. Ooo!! Let me know how it goes! I haven't noticed any major peeling except for what washed off when I originally used the booties. I've got one more day, though, so we'll see :D
