I had asked people on Facebook and Twitter if they wanted to see the Tony Moly box first, or the Oily/Troubled Skin box, and the majority voted in favour of Tony Moly, so here is the unboxing.
A Korean beauty box that ships to many countries (sign the petition here to get them to ship everywhere like they used to), Memebox often releases brand-only boxes. Do check out their website for various boxes and prices. The Banila Co. box was a disaster, so I had the heebie-jeebies about the Tony Moly one, despite the latter being one of the biggest Korean brands.
Here is my unboxing and review of the Tony Moly Superbox #9 from Memebox.
- Mr Smile Patch
- Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist
- Petit Bunny Gloss Bar
- Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm
- Nail Foundation Kit
- Floria Nutra-Energy 100 Hours Cream
- Tomatox Magic Massage Pack
Mr Smile Patch is a pair of hydro-gel cooling patches meant to be applied over laugh-lines. The black bean, sesame and blueberry and mulberry extracts in this product are supposed to "nullify" the laugh lines. I doubt that would happen but it would be a lark to wear this as a moustache and show my niece - who is already used to my Rhett Butler-impersonation - and get some deep hydration in the bargain.
Who will not wash their face for 100 hours? I would be COVERED in pimples if I tried such a stunt. The Floria Nutra-Energy 100 Hours Cream is supposed to provide intense hydration for 100 hours! They do not say if the effects will last even if you wash your face in the interim, which is highly unlikely, since most of us wash our faces two times a day at least. The other option is too gross to contemplate.
You can see that I bought this very product from my favourite Korean beauty website W2Beauty a few months ago! I have used up less than one-thirds of the first jar and wonder when I will get around to finishing the first one, let alone starting on the second.
I should stop buying full-sized Korean cosmetics now that I have Memebox. Mind you, this is a great home-facial massage pack, which I will review in detail soon.
A brilliant box. I look forward to trying out everything here, although I have been rather sarko about the descriptions on some of them - but you know me. I especially love that there are no BB or CC creams in this box. This box is currently out of stock but it has been restocked two times in the last couple of weeks, so you might want to keep a lookout for it. It costs $39 but I had a stock of some eight or so points to use up, which brought down the cost to $31. And I combined shipping with a host of other boxes.
I have more Memeboxes to show you, but will intersperse the posts with other reviews and makeup looks.
