Unboxing: Memebox #33 Collagen

#33 Collagen Cosmetics

 The second box of the day and the second unbxoing of the day.  Whoooo let's cut to the chase because my eye balls aren't going to last very long.  I've been staring at the computer screen for a good three four hours now T__T.
 Sneaky peeky!  Wondering what is inside? Well at least for those of you that don't stalk memebox like me, this might be a surprise for you.

This box is still available for those that might be interested.  Click on this link to earn back 3 memepoints!  Make sure to read till the end for coupon codes too!

 Untouched, freshly opened box!
 Mugshot line up :D.
 Artsy fartsy arrangement.

 Ze info car :)

 The first product is Ramosu Carestory collagen extract retailing for $36 and contains 10 mL.  This is a full sized product.  The glass bottle's measurements is 1.75 cm X 6 cm.

Product description:
"Infused with over 17 different amino acids, this 100% concentrated Collagen Ampoule will deliver intense hydration and facilitate cell regeneration for more supple and firmed up baby-skin.  Also, it doesn't smell or feel sticky like your average collagen products, and instead it glides onto the skin refreshingly.  Experience the wonders of the real Collagen ampoule currently being used in Korean aesthetic beauty salons!"

How to use:
After skin application, take a couple of the ampoule and apply it evenly over your face.  Gently pat it in for full absorbency.
 The small glass reminds me a lot of circle lenses case haha.  I wanted to see how the lid pops off and accidentally almost opened it! I'm not using it yet so I don't want to open it. I've personally never tried anything like this, extract I mean so this would be pretty cool.  It also comes with a dropper lid so it would be easier to control how much you want.
 The second product is Dermahouse collagen firming cream retailing for $29 and contains 30 mL.  This is is a full sized product. The plastic jar is 4 cm x 4.5 cm.  The fragrance is quite odd.  It is a mixture of 60% fruit (I'm guessing it is from the mango), 30% soap and 10%  floral.  Smell-o-scale= 4/10.

Product description:
"The abundant collagen, shea butter, and mango shea butter ingredients in the collagen firming cream work to lock in moisture and deliver beneficial nutrients deep down into your skin.  With continuous use, you'll experience disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improvement in the skin texture and clarity."

How to use:
Apply the cream generously over your face and gently pat it in for full absorbency.
 I don't know why but when I got my jar, there was cream already spilling out. :S Nothing a tissue can't fix.

 The texture of this cream is semi thick. The thickness level isn't like pure shea butter thick, but it is thick enough that it is super moisturizing and doesn't leave your skin greasy.  The cream itself also as a brown tint, kind of looks like caramel pudding haha.

 Third product I have here is Dewytree real collagen nutrition serum retailing for $39 and contains 50 mL.  This is a full sized product.  The plastic bottle is 6 cm x 9 cm in dimension.
Smell-o-scale= 4/10 (smells very light of the generic korean floral scent)

Product description:
"A deeply moisturizing and nourishing facial serum infused with high concentrates of collagen, Dewytree's popular Real gollagen nutrition serum treats enlarged pores, sagging skin and signs of aging with its highly moist and nutritious formula which instigate skin regeneration and renewal."

How to use:
After toner application, apply the serum generously over your face and pat it in for full absorbency.
 Omg there is English!
 OMG there is ingredients in English? :O  Are you guys in heaven or what?
 The packaging, even down to the cardboard box, is super luxurious.  It looks expensive and the bottle is cute.  I don't really agree with the bulkiness of the bottle, but then again I don't carry around my skincare so it is okay.
 The texture is just like any other serum, light, white and translucent and absorbs into the skin fast.
 The fourth product is 3W clinic collagen make-up base retailing for $30 and contains 50 mL.  This is a full sized product.  The glass bottle's dimensions are 2.5 cm x 14 cm. Smell-o-scale= 8/10.  It smells like a grandma to me, straight up like a floral loving, slightly powdery scented grandma.  I can't say I'm a big fan but it doesn't really bother me so much to the point where I would not use it.

Product description:
"This silicone type Collagen make-up contains blemish-control powder components for matting out and preparing the skin condition before foundation application.  The high level of adherence and long-lasting formula helps maintain your make up silky smooth all day long."

How to use:
At the first stage of base make up, pump out the collagen make up base and apply it evenly over your face.

I don't know why but the "Miss korea" label on the top of the box reminds me of Lee hyori's Miss korea song LOL.
 The product comes in a frosted glass bottle.  The make up base is actually a green based silicone cream.  I can't comment much about it since it is my first impression.  We will see how it goes but as for now, I feel like it is just another green based make up product.

 The second to last product is The skin house wrinkle collagen free spot retailing for $28 and contains 30 mL.  This is a full sized product. Dimensions are 2 cm x 14 cm.  Smell-o-scale= 6/10 with the same generic korean floral soapy scent.

Product description:
"This winkle-care product is packed with collagen and adenosine components for delivering deep, intense nourishment o the skin and nullify the signs of aging by filling in between fine lines and wrinkles.  This is not an eye-only cream; it can be applied anywhere else on your skin with visible lines and wrinkles." 

How to use:
Before moisturizing cream application, apply the Wrinkle collagen free spot on areas around the eyes, the forehead, and the smile lines and gently pat it in for better absorbency.

 This cream is fast absorbing and very moisturizing.  It does not leave any sticky or greasy residue.
The last product is abelle So Hot burning concentrate ampoule retailing for $24 and contains 20 mL.  This is a full sized product.

Product description:
" A unique hair ampoule that warms up all by itself and absorbs deeply into your hair, this highly concentrated ampoule is made from EGF, hydrolyzed keratin, hydrolyzed keratin, hydrolyzed collagen, and hydrolyzed silk which all work to strengthen the hair cuticle and make your hair shine with a natural glow."

How to use:
Towel dry after shampooing and apply the ampoule evenly throughout your hair.  Place the plastic cap over your head and rest for 5-15 minutes.  Rinse off with warm water.  It's recommended to be used 1-2 times a week.

Short story, I was actually born with quite frizzy hair to the point where when I was a toddler, everyone thought my mom got me a asian afro hair perm.  Its not even funny how bad my hair was.  It was dry, frizzy and back then, there was no internet or Youtube to teach people how beautify themselves.  So I was stuck with no knowledge, no mom to lean onto for beauty advice.  So when I first got my Sedu hair straightener, I thought it was magic.  My hair was suddenly straight! LOL I used to always use different types of hot oil hair treatments but nothing really help :S.  I might tell you the whole story later on if anyone is interested in my try asian afro HAHA.

Overall I'd say this is a good box, satisfied to say the least.  Although I do not think this box is right for me, I will pass it down to my mom who i think is a much more appropriate candidate to see if these products work or not. The whole box is full sized, but I'd say four of the products are full size, and the rest are deluxe samples in my opinion.  I'd give this box a 3.5/5 stars.
