Memebox Luckybox #8 Review


Memebox Luckybox #8 arrived today!  It was shipped Express by DHL for some reason.  I'm not complaining, though, I love my Memeboxes!  The earlier the better.

This particular Memebox is a Luckybox.  This means that it contains only products from past global Memeboxes.  Essentially, this is a box of repeats.  However, if you missed out on Memeboxes #1-#10 then you would probably love getting a Luckybox.

I don't mind a few repeats and I did miss out of the first 7 boxes so it's less likely that everything will be a repeat.  I'm super happy about one of them, though.  SO happy!

The Cost: $23 plus shipping

What You Get: Luckybox was created to bring back our most popular items selected from previously sold-out Memeboxes, all combined in one wonderful collection. Each Luckybox contains a selection of products from past Memeboxes, occasionally including a few new favorites.






Dear by Enprani Moistfull Booskin-65ml- And the card says that this is a compact when its clearly not. Sooo... This is actually a moisturizing toner.  It is applied, not with a cotton pad, but with your hands and fingers, patting the liquid into your skin after cleansing.
This has a really interesting texture.  It... strings...  like... saliva?  That's why you can't use a cotton pad, I suppose.  It is scented.  I don't think I like the scent but the stringy-ness of it is intriguing.  I can tell you that it instantly made my skin soft and smooth.  I'm impressed!

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City-10ml- Bet you can't guess by that name what this product does...  Its a CC cream!  Specially designed to mattify oily skin and control oil slicks throughout the day, this is CC cream for you if you have oily skin.  Instantly mattifies and holds for up to 8 hours, this smooths fine lines and reduces the appearance of blemishes for a smooth, healthy complexion.
I haven't tried this yet but I think I need to.  I don't have particularly oily skin but on a hot sunny day, it'd be nice if this could hold up to it. It's a very pale beige and smooths on nicely. I felt it brightened my complexion very nicely.

T.P.O V-Line Banding Mask x2- Infused with hydrolyzed collagen, adenosine, caffeine and other elasticity promoting ingredients, this V-Line mask will firm your skin and reduce sagging.  You'll get a Gangnam girl baby face and smooth, hydrated skin.
The descriptions always make me laugh.  This probably won't get rid of a double chin but it will provided needed moisture to your chin and neck area that can be forgotten sometimes.  I'm SO glad they included two masks.  They're so cheap and it's way more fun to get two, right? :)
SN-T Goddess Cream-50ml- This one product makes the entire box worth it.  If this box was full of orange Hope Girl lipstick and false lashes, getting this one moisturizer would still make me love this box.  If you haven't tried this, do whatever it takes to find it or acquire it somehow.  This is one of the most glorious moisturizers I've used.  This is not a lipgloss, even though the information card says it is.
This moisturizer uses yew plant stem cells to soothe stressed skin and minimize skin irritations.  It also controls excess sebum and helps maintain a healthy oil/water balance in your skin.  These yew stem cells must work really well because this has lemon oil in it and it has (gasp!) lavender oil, which I am allergic to.  I haven't noticed any adverse reactions to that and I seriously adore this cream.  It's so light it's almost a gel and is SO perfect for hot days or warm climates.  LOVE!

TonyMoly Delight Tint Red-1.5ml- Well, it's interesting but I don't think this is something you can spray on your clothing like the info card says.  This is a red lip tint and I now have five of these.  Luckily they aren't a bad color.  It's a nice red, not like vampire scary.

Derma:B Daily Moisturizer Body Lotion-100ml- This is a gentle moisturizer that combines a toner, essences and lotion all in one.  Uses no alcohol and can be used on your face and body to moisturize and help maintain a healthy oil/moisture balance.  It can also be mixed in with your BB cream or foundation.  This has a floral, powdery scent that I don't really care for.

 O&Soap Berry Bubble Cleanser-100 ml- Hmm... the description says these are deodorant wipes but no, the Bubble Cleanser is for your face! It's made with carbonated water and a ten-seed extract complex with soap berries, of course.  This reminds me of  shaving cream.  The white fluffy kind.  It has a soapy smell (ooh, from the soap nuts?) that I don't particularly care for but I've been wanting this product for awhile now.

AmorePacific Ryo Anti-Hair Loss Treatment-50ml x2- Gah! The info card gnomes strike again!  This says that it is a fabric mist!  Well, from the title alone, I know I want to use it because I need to keep all my hair. Might as well try it!  It has ginger, ginseng, black beans, green tea and licorice in it.  I eat all those things and my hair falls out so I'm not sure how much good this will do.  However I have never smeared any of those things on my head and left them there.  I think this is a leave in conditioner but the directions are a little unclear.

VERDICT:  I already said earlier that the SN-T Goddess Cream makes the box for me and it really does!
There were three other repeats for me: the Too Cool For School CC Cream, the Dear by Enprani Moistfull Booskin (what a name..) and the TonyMoly Lip Tint.  I'm not offended by the repeats because this is a Luckybox and that's what a Luckybox is.  A collection of items from past Memeboxes.  I did get new products and I'm excited to use them, especially the masks.  I love sheet masks and I'm so happy there are two!

  1. I am still thinking to order or not for Luckybox 9. Worrying repeat products will be too much for me to keep (it will take years to finished it all) but SN-T Goddess Cream, O&Soap Berry Bubble Cleanser and Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City looks awesome.
    Thank you for review this box

    1. I know how you feel. This is my second Luckybox and with all my Memeboxes, I thought I was pretty lucky with this box. The repeats were worth it to me but I don't think I would get another one just because I need to use what I have first. And I'd rather try new things!

  2. This box looks so amazing!! I regret not buying it, but I received the Luckybox #7 and was quite disappointed so they seem to be pretty hit or miss. Still debating about whether or not to get #9... >_<

    1. I know! Theres always that "what if..." factor with these boxes! #7 did seem like kind of a dud and it does seem like the variety is lacking. That Mise en scene has been in three Luckyboxes now, I think. I got #1 and #8 and I think Im good for awhile.

  3. Thanks for posting so fast!! I have this box + Lucky #9 coming too.
    I'm not as WOWED as I hoped I would be as this is my first Luckybox.. I think it's because of the toner & CC cream that are repeats from Memebox #11 (my first and only Memebox so far), and they were alright. I AM excited for the cleanser & SN-T Goddess cream!! That V-line mask seems like fun, haha. I hope it actually works!

    1. I don't really get the Luckyboxes because Im not super into getting repeats but I had a code that made it worth trying. Im not sure I would get another one but thats because Im getting all the global ones now. So I know what you mean. I hope you love the Goddess Cream as much as I do :D. The V Line masks are hilarious but I totally use them while hoping theyre working!

  4. Hi there! Just received this box today. I was wondering what the date on your bubble cleanser is? Mine is May 2013. I hope that's manufacture and not expiration.
