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! 

Memebox Christmas Collection #2 My Holiday Glam

So I bought the bundle of Christmas boxes without reading what they are for. I just wanted express shipping. Urg. Worst decision ever. Because if I read it I would not have bought the second box. It is all cosmetics, the description even made it clear it is cosmetics. Smart me. 

The box was $23 + $6.99 shipping. It contains 6 items and I like some of the products but it's very unlikely for me to use them. :( 

Memebox Christmas Collection #1 Stress Free Holidays

People has been asking for a Christmas box for a long time and Memebox FINALLY put up the Christmas early December. I jumped on it and bought the bundle due to the lack of boxes in December.

The Stress Free Holidays box is to help you fight skin and body blemishes and flaws caused by stress. But.. I don't think some of the box contents fit the bill.

Innisfree Haul

Back in November, Innisfree World had a promotion where if you spend $50 USD you get free shipping. Since my Innisfree Memebox was cancelled around the same time and I have never tried any items from the brand, I decided to take advantage of the promotion. 

The items were shipped on November 26th and I chose the free EMS service. Just my luck, the items didn't past through Customs until the weekend so I did not receive them until December 1st. But it was definitely a happy present to chase away the Monday blues.

Memebox Special #67 Blackout!

Happy holidays!! Hope everyone had a good holiday season! 

This post has been long delayed. It's on the Black Out! box which was received at the same time as Petite Treasure. This box was $19 + $6.99 shipping. 

Due to the lower cost to the box, this only contains four items. I was hoping to receive a black mask, specifically the Elizavecca Black Piggy foaming mask. But unfortunately I didn't get my wish. Oh well. The box isn't bad.

Memebox Special #66 Petit Treasures

 Alright, back onto the blogging bus. I decided to start with the boxes that disappointed me first and then end with the good boxes so I can end on a happy note with Memebox.

Petit Treasure was $19 + $6.99 shipping. A normal box is $23 so there is a $4 dollar difference. There was not much clue in the number of items will be included or its size.

Memebox's description for the box was:
Yes, we know. We're going overhead with our cute cosmetic obsession. But, what can we say? We've discovered another batch of rare but beautiful treasures that will give you an A+ in beauty, and this time, they're all miniature! So petite and cute, yet so intense and effective, these beautifying trinkets will fit your makeup pouch so that you can stay beautiful everyday and everywhere.

Up your game in beauty with petite beauty treasures!

I seen the spoiler before receiving my box so I knew its contents and had very low expectations. Yet when I received my box, I couldn't help but feel even more disappointed. It was in the smallest Memebox and it was light as a feather. It had four items and I guess it kind of does fit the description. The items are small and cute. But it's still disappointing.

I currently have about 5 Memebox to do posts on. I been putting it off for over a week now. I am just so disappointed with the contents of the boxes and the direction the company is going. I can't bring myself to spend the time to write on the boxes and its contents.

I received the Rose Edition, which was a box I really wanted and managed to snag during the Black Friday restock. I was happy to receive it and was going to do a post the next day. That is when I started to receive the bad boxes. In just a week I received four boxes that disappointed me and I am not sure if I am into Memeboxes anymore :( That makes me so sad as I really enjoy getting the pink boxes in the mail. Will finish posting them during the holidays I hope.

I still have to do a post bout my finished blanket and scarf. I been trying to do it after I finish my Memeboxes but they just keep on coming so those two kept on being pushed back. I started and restarted my chevron blanket thrice now. I finally got a new set of knitting needles last night and loosen up so the blanket is looking better. Will do a progress post about that. Hoping I will get everything done before the end of the year!

Memebox Special #55 OMG 4

Memebox's OMG series is supposed to include products that will shock you and make you go "OMG!" when you open the box. I liked the OMG 3 box I received, primarily the Migabee Beetox cream. So when I needed to make up a large order to use up a 20% code in October, I decided to invest in the OMG 4 box. This box is DEFINITELY OMG worthy, but not for the right reason. 

The box was $29 + $6.99 standard shipping. It was shipped on November 18th and received on November 26th. It only took 8 days including the weekend so it came through really quick for standard shipping.

Memebox Thanksgiving Box Collection #2 For You

As mentioned in the previous Thanksgiving box post. This box was released in November and since I could not decide on which box to pick, I got both.The box cost $26 + $6.99 shipping. It took 7 days to arrive at my office and into my happy little hands. 

I liked quite a few items in the first box and there are a couple of items I really like in this box!

Memebox Thanksgiving Box Collection #1 For Me

There was such a Memebox drought in November that when they released the Thanksgiving box, it sold out almost immediately. I was bored and wanted new boxes, and I couldn't decided which box to get so I bought the bundle. The box was $26 each + $6.99 shipping. 

I had it mailed to my office so I can sign for it without risking the dreaded pick up slip. The package was mailed on November 18th and I received it on the 25th. The box was delayed a day as Canada Post apparently had a problem with the office's postal code. Though the package had the correct postal code so I have no idea why they decided to delay it another day. But whatever. I was very happy to receive the bright orange boxes at lunch time! (A month after the Canadian Thanksgiving but oh wells :D)

Nellafantasia Honey 1 Snail Ultra Moisture Cream

In one of the sampling events in October/November, the Nellafantasia Honey 1 Snail Ultra Moisture Cream was featured as one of the products. Imagine my surprise when Canada Post knocked on my door at 8PM delivering a small package from Memebox on a day that I was not expecting any packages. I actually won! I won the snail cream! I was excited because it sounded like a really good moisturizer. The cream is supposed to improve the dryness of your skin while brightening your skin tone. It is to improve your skin's elasticity and getting rid of your winkles.

Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence

So during the Memebox drought in November, I decided to purchase the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence along with the Ciracle Red Spot Cream. I heard that it is a great product to use on troubled skin, especially those with acne problems. I bought it with my brother in mind but I ended up keeping it. I have heard of the contamination problems they had before but I have heard pretty good recent reviews and decided to take the plunge. I did keep in mind that I would do a patch test before using it on my face. 

Ciracle Red Spot Cream

During the November drought of Memeboxes,I got bored and decided to buy Benton Snail Essence. I did not want to pay for shipping so I had to choose another item to make it to $30 for free shipping. I was considering the Ciracle Red Spot Cream as I have read great reviews from different blogs. I was hesitant as I didn't want to spend so much on my brother's skincare routine. :P I was convinced by Fanserviced and her Instagram post raving about this product. I had to get it for my brother and his constant angry red spots.

I purchased the cream on November 6, it shipped out on November 14 and received on November 24. I am kind of surprised it took over a week for the item to ship out as it was listed as an ready to ship item. Oh well.

Memebox Special #57 - For Dry & Sensitive Skin

I purchased Memebox Special #57 For Dry & Sensitive Skin in a bundle with My Cute Wishlist #4. The box sounded like it would be mostly skincare so I was all game for it. It was $29 + shipping. 

I am not sure what I was expecting from the box besides some skincare items. What I actually received was quite a disappointment despite having no expectations.  
Read on to see why I am so disappointed with the box.

Memebox Superbox#71 - My Cute Wishlist #4

Memebox's My Cute Wishlist series has been one great box followed by two crappy boxes. The most notable crappy item was the creepy doll cream from My Cute Wishlist #3. But it is also the series that got me hooked with Memebox. So I did not give up hope with My Cute Wishlist #4. I am half happy that I kept it. It is not as bad as #3 but I only found half the box to be cute. Kind of sad but at least the items are going to be useful. ^__^

The box was $23 + shipping. I did get it bundled with Dry & Sensitive so I received it within 5 days. The box is sold out, but they have been restocking the series so if you like the box, keep an eye out for a restock! 

Would you like an apple?
