Memebox The Next Best Thing in Skincare Review

Memebox Review The Next Best Thing in Skincare
I actually emailed Memebox to ask where my Next Best Thing in Skincare box was!  I had no shipping notice or anything but it arrived today (along with several other things I'll be spoiling later on) and now I can review it for you.  
This box was a "must buy" for me.  Skincare is where it's at for me and Memebox constantly delivers in skincare focused boxes.  This box is no different.  This box made me deliriously happy. Especially after Super Luckybox #11.
This box has a package of Blithe Patting Water packets, a serum, moisturizer, moisture balm, cleansing wipes, sample sleeping packs and a Mememask!  I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this box but I'm going to try!

Here's the blurb:
"Say hello to a new generation of water packs, overnight sleeping masks, quick and easy multi-functional skin-conditioning sheets, and premium jelly capsule creams! Use this epic combination of fun, new age skin care miracles to discover the secret to gorgeous, youthful-looking skin."

The Cost: $23 plus shipping
Dr.MJ Moisture Bounce Collagen Capsule Cream-50g-A rejuvenating facial cream formulated into bouncy, jelly-like texture packed with collagen capsules, hyaluronic acid, and adenosine to intensively hydrate and gently firm up sensitive and tired skin. It works to alleviate and nourish stimulated skin for a quick skin renewal as well.
This is a clear gel with little pink capsules in it. It has a floral smell that I think is kind of strong.  It's not bad but I can see it might not thrill some people.  It sinks in and leaves no sticky aftereffect.  It's quite moisturizing.  I used it on my hands and arms because the scent was a little much to put on my face.
AHC Hologram Active Gen Serum-50ml- ACH stands for Aesthetic Hydration Complex.  This premium serum combines active aesthetic ingredients with a scientific liposome system that maximizes absorbance of nutrients deep into the skin, to give a visibly enhanced complexion. A blend of ice fig extracts, hydrolyzed collagen, and ginseng callus extracts effectively firms, brightens, and repairs dry, damaged skin, reviving youthful and healthy glow to the complexion.

I'm a little bummed to see it has ginseng in it because I had such a bad reaction to a ginseng mask I used.  But it's going to be hard not to try this.  In the light, this has a hologram inside of it!  There's a DNA-like twist of essence down the center of the bottle and it is really pretty.  It changes colors as you turn the bottle.
It smells faaabulous! It's got niacinamide and a whole bunch of antixodants in it.  I feel like it has a hint of stickiness once it has been applied and massaged into my skin.  I'm just testing it right now to see if my skin reacts to the ginseng so I haven't slapped it on my face yet.  Although I want to!
IASO Intensive Clear Conditioner-15 sheets-Containing centella asiatica, aloe vera, licorice extracts, and BHA salicylic acid for softly melting away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, IASO Intensive Clear Conditioner sheet is a new easy and convenient method to maintaining silky soft and even toned complexion.

I love cleansing sheets!  These are for cleansing but not really for  makeup removal.  This is to get rid of your dead skin and uses salicylic acid for the exfoliating.  This is a travel pack and the sheets are pretty small but I had no issues using them.  I hope they don't dry out now that I've opened them.

Shara Shara Green Tea Seed Magic Balm-25ml-Enriched with green tea seed oil, jojoba seed oil, argan tree kernel oil, and over 30 kinds of natural essential oil, this multi oil balm delivers rich moisture and nutrients by softly melting onto skin. It’s scented with a refreshing lime essential oil fragrance and can be used from head to toe as a multi cream, a sleeping pack, a massage cream, a lip balm or a hand & foot pack.

This smells like oil to me.  Not lime.  I wish it smelled like lime.  It's very thick, sticky and is kind of like putting chapstick all over yourself.  However, it is VERY moisturizing and I can see using this for my knees and elbows or my lips if I go skiing.  I do not thing I would ever use it as a sleeping pack, though! 
If yours smells like lime, tell me because I feel like there might be something wrong with mine because it totally doesnt.
Blithe Patting Water Pack-5ml x 6-  There are two packets of each type: Energy Yellow Citrus and Honey, Soothing and Healing Green Tea and Rejuvenating Purple Berry.  You're supposed to mix these with water and pat the essence onto your skin.  It’ll remove dead skin cells, deliver moisture & nutrition, and renew the skin balance for maintaining soft, moist skin condition. 
The Energy Yellow Citrus & Honey revitalizes and brightens up the skin and the Soothing & Healing Green Tea is for oil and pore control, while the Rejuvenating Purple Berry works to improve skin elasticity and firmness.

I've been wanting to try the Blithe Patting Essences forever and I'm really glad I'll get to test all three types!  I'm going to pour a packet into my Grinif Aloe Mist (still basically full) and use it that way instead of wasting it by mixing it in a bowl of water like they suggest. 
Lassie’el Night Miracle Sleeping Pack 4g x 2- Randomly selected from Egg, Mango, Pearl Shell, Avocado. These are mini sleeping packs formulated with concentrated extracts from egg, mango, avocado, and pearl. They work to deeply hydrate and rejuvenate dry, exhausted skin overnight to reveal healthier and brighter complexion the next morning.
These are SO CUTE!!  The Pearl one has a pearl of moisturizer in the middle of the essence.  I don't know if you can tell but there's a little plastic spatuala that you punch out of the plastic.  You use that to mix the two essences together, then apply!  You get two servings of each type (mine are Mango and Pearl).  I'm pretty excited to use this tonight!  And again, SO CUTE!
Mememask- I am ridiculously excited about this!! It's a hydro gel, two piece mask.  This is a box extra and is not included on the info card (that is online instead of in the box, for some reason).  I'll be writing up a review specifically for these soon.  The ingredients are so good (Baobab Tree Seed Extract, Chamomile, Niacinamide and Adenosine), I can't wait.  If you are going to buy anything in the BOGO 50% off sale, I suggest these masks.  Just remember they come in 2 pieces so if you don't like that kind of sheet mask, you might not care for this one.

VERDICT: Heaven in a box!  What great skincare items!  These things are not only fun (and cute) but useful!  I was seriously expecting CPM2 but instead we got GREAT and NEW products!  Okay, enough exclamation marks but seriously, this is a great box, I cant wait to really dig into it.  I might even have to get another one if they restock this.  That's how happy I am with this.  For $23 plus shipping, it's totally worth it!  And I used points so it was even less than that.

If you want to check out Memebox and see if they have something you might want, you can check out there USA shop, Global Shop or get a look at their list of available boxes.

They also currently have some great deals on Holiday Value Sets of great brands like Elizavecca and Milky Dress.

    1. I know, shipping takes forever. I still am waiting for my #17 to show up! The skin test went well! No issues when I used it on my face either :D. I can't tell if the holographic bits make my face sparkly... I feel like it does but I'm not positive. More testing in better light is in order. I hope your box shows up soon!
