Memebox Superbox #78 Dirty Gal

I had to buy this box since this was created based on the suggestion by a MUT member Jane George. You can visit her blog here. She requested that the box contains products that requires you to get dirty before you can get clean. It is such an interesting concept and seem like there would be different textures so I had to get it! 

The box was $32 + 6.99 shipping. It is one of the more expensive boxes but I was more than happy that I ordered it based on the spoiler. The spoiler item was a snail cream from Dr. MJ. I love snail cream :D So this box is an automatic win! 

**All prices listed are from product card unless otherwise stated **

Dr. MJ Real Mucin Restore Cream 50g ($46)
Product Description: Repair and renew with this intensive cream formulated with rich snail mucin, renowned for its regeneration and revitalizing properties. This potent cream supports natural cell regeneration to decrease the appearance of wrinkles, and is super concentrated to replensih moisture and maximize the skin elasticity and firmness.

Thoughts: Yay another jar of snail cream!! There was a protective seal on the jar and I have the Shara Shara snail cream that is expiring within a year. I decided not to open it. But this snail creams super sticky and moisturizing based on searches. I am so excited to use it!

This is sticky but not really dirty but meh. It's a great product!

B&SOAP Mamie Blue 130g ($29)
Product Description: Nothing heightens the skin's natural metabolic processes better than this densely textures, smooth gliding, and terrifically energizing "smurf facial mask". Slap this blue paste onto skin to clear away dead, tired skin cells while literally vacuuming up all impurities. Infused with invigorating peppermint, soothing evening primrose oil, and more, this facial mask is excellent for all skin types and all ages. 

Thoughts: This is so cute! A Smurf facial mask! It looks just like a blue mint chocolate ice cream. Hehe so cute. 

The product is made with no preservatives so Memebox advised to use it up within a year after unsealing. However, I found another site that recommend using it up within 6 months. I would use it up within 6 months to be on the safer side. Though if it does expire you can probably still use it on your body instead. 

I dislike washing my face then put something on and then wash it again. I am that lazy. So I am trying hard to convince myself to use it and give it a try.

Esthetic House Mayo Pack 120ml ($12)
Product Description: An easy-to-use hair mask inspired from mayonnaise - famous hair home remedy - to make hair soft, elastic, moist, nourished, and to prevent excess hair tangles. 

Thoughts: My first thought upon seeing this product was the article from Rocketnew 24 I read recently. Where they used Japanese mayo, vegetable oil and olive oil as conditioner. Where they found that olive oil is really effective as a hair treatment. Though in mayo's defense, I don't think the Japanese mayo is same as what's in the mayo pack. Hahaha. 

Anyways, this seems interesting! I was to try it but I am still working through my camellia deep conditioner so I will be keeping this wrapped up until I am moved and ready to use it 

Pure Smile Muddy Girl 15g x 2 ea ($2)
Randomly selected from Mud, Pearl, Kaolin
Product Description: A wash-off type mud pack made from naturally derived ingredients such as white clay, mud, and pearl extracts. It works to soothe, purify, and moisturize the skin, preventing possible dehydration and surface roughening. 

Thoughts: So the packs doesn't tell you what you got unless you can understand Japanese or Korean. From a chart I found, I got mud and kaolin. The green pack is mud, where it is suited for oily skin. The mud pack will penetrate deep into your skin to remove impurities while tightens it. The Kaolin is a the light blue pack. It is also suited for oily skin and works to remove excess oil and impurities. I have combination to dry skin so these packs are not really suited for my skin. So I will pass it off to my brother and make him look silly. :D

Cleomee Natural Donkey Oil 80ml ($83 $26.99)
Product Description: This gentle and nourishing blend of natural EGF donkey oil, olive oil, annatto oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oil, sunflower oil, and macadamia oil delivers rich nutrition and replenishment deep down into the skin. Free of paraben, phenoxyethanol, artificial coloring, benzophenone, and mineral oil. 

Thoughts: I wasn't a fan of the perfume oil from OMG#3 so my expectation for this oil was low. I am having trouble believing the $83 price tag. The $26.99 price tag on Ebay seems more plausible. 

I did try some of the oil and the scent wasn't bad. It is a very light floral smell that doesn't bother my nose at all. It doesn't have that gamey smell at all. The oil is clear and takes a while to absorb into my skin, just like the perfume oil. So if you are in a hurry, do not use this oil at all! You will to rub this into your skin and wait for 10 minutes or so for it to be fully absorbed. Do not touch anything with your hands either as it will be really oily. I am not really using this oil yet because I really don't like waiting so long for it to be absorbed. Keeping it for when it is really dry out and give it a try then.

Overall Thoughts: I love that a blogger suggested a box and Memebox curated it quite well. With the heftier price tag, the overall product cost is $115.99 so cost wise the box is worth it. Three out of five products matches the dirty before you get clean part. My favourite product, the snail cream, doesn't quite fit the bill but it's stickiness makes up for it. The donkey oil is the least fitting product but that's okay. The snail cream and mayo pack more than makes up this box for me. :)
