For those that buy things online and like to stalk your tracking numbers, you'd have the same reaction when you see the delivery date is tomorrow! WHOOO I was so happy to see that BOTH my memeboxes would be shipped to me today. So I woke up early just to make sure that I wouldn't miss my mail lady delivering them to me :D. I'm too cheap to pay extra to get tracking number, so memebox does a good job providing tracking numbers even if it is just the standard shipping.
They don't come in the plastic baggies where you can just rip open. I'm guessing because they can save on the extract step of bubble wrap since it is already built into these heavy duty parcel bags.
This is my first global memebox since I started late and learned about memebox later then most people on youtube so let's see what kind of impression it has imprinted on me.
If you want to check out the memebox global #13 just in case they restock in the future, here is the link. I paid $23 + shipping.

Freshly opened box :). Do you understand how hard it is for me to get a package, and not be able to touch anything until I get my camera and do my unboxing routine :'(. It is very hard for me. It is like getting a birthday present and you can't open it yet but it is right in front of you.
I finally found a place to take a better picture of the info. cards, but I don't know why blogger is uploading my pictures so dark even after I have brightened them. :( Not happy....
Mug shot line up with some causalities.
The fancy set up :).
The first product is 23 years old CX detoxifying air therapy retailing for $50 each. This is a full sized product. The syringe is 2 cm X 21 cm.
"Made from carbonated water, this Carboxy pack creates sparkling bubbles on your face, minutely massaging the skin while you're wearing the mask pack. It may prickle a little bit as the bubbles penetrates deep into the skin and cleanse away all the impurities clogging up the pores. The mineral-rich carbonated water also helps brighten and firm up your overall skin for a revitalized feeling after use."
How to use:
Apply the carboxy pack all over your face and place the mask sheet on top. Rest for 20-30 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
To be quite honest, I don't know if I will use this or not since it seems like a hassle. I'm the type that likes sheet masks since it is easy and convenient. Then again, I'm slightly lazy when I'm at home haha.
The fragrance of this product is very very herbally and on a scale of 1-10, this is a good 8.5.
The next product we have is the Donga tempo eco natural super (tampons obviously :D). These retail for $11 for 16 each and these are full sized products. Can they give half sized tampons? XD I don't need to smell these for you right.......
"Bating back to the 1970's, Donga was the first Korean brand to product women's tampons- for providing busy, outgoing women the freedom and comfort to engage in their lives even through their monthly periods. Tempo Eco Natural is made from 100% purely organic cotton and thus very gentle and comfortable.
How to use: (Oh dear)....
Apply the application in first, push in the included cotton and then pull out the applicator, all the while making sure the remover thread is well attached.
Oh and if you didn't catch that the first time, HERE'S A PICTURE DIAGRAM OF SOMEONE'S VA J J T_______T. Why memebox, why. This has the be the weirdest product I have received from you guys. I don't mind getting tampons (even though I am a pad girl), but put it in as an extra. Not as one of the products. I really don't want tampons :S. PLEASE! AND NO MORE "SCIENTIFIC PICTURES".
Third product which can get my mind off of the second product catastrophe is CNP cosmetics derma-scalp shampoo retailing for $27/ 250 g. This is a sample sized product containing 25 g which comes to $2.70. The bottle is 2.5 cm X 7.5 cm. The fragrance of this shampoo is STRONG. My nose almost wanted to close themselves. It smells strongly of soap and floral. It is definitely 10/10 on my smell-o-scale.
"It only takes 4 minutes a day to maintain your scalp healthy and well-nourished! The CNP Derma-scalp shampoo will deep cleanse into your scalp to unclog the pores, remove excess impurities, and cool and refresh with tea tree oil extracts. Suitable for sensitive, troublesome scalp."
How to use:
lather the shampoo with your hands and thoroughly run it through wet hair and scalp. Rest for 4 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
The fourth product is also from CNP cosmetics and it is Tone-up protection sun retailing for $34/ 50 mL. This is a sample size containing 15 mL which would come up to $10.20 for 15 mL. Fragrance is not strong, smell-o-scale of 4/10 and it smells like public washroom hand soap. Doesn't sound so appeal but that's what it makes me think of haha.
"An SPF42/PA+++ sun block for protecting your skin under the scorching sun, this smart sun block contains powdery components for maintaining your skin silky soft while the deep sea water included works to prevent skin dehydration in the summertime."
How to use:
Generously apply the sun block on your face, neck, arm and legs. It can also be used as a base make up when applied on the face.
You can't really see from the picture since my camera washes it out but the sunscreen is a tinted salmon color. It is thicker then a gel but not as thick as a buttered texture cream. It is somewhere in the middle. After rubbing it into the skin, it does not leave my skin greasy but you can tell when you run your fingers over it, that there is something there.
The fifth product is Yufit Eon Wheat-Germ cream 75 retailing for $48 and contains 75 mL. This is a full sized product. The glass jar is 5.75 cm X 5.5 cm. Smell-o-scale= 2.5/10 with a very very faint scent of clean skincare product scent + a sprinkle of floral.
"Over 75% of the cream consists of organic wheat bud extracts which works to hydrate, firm, brighten, and fight signs of aging all in one! Its gentle and lightly absorbing texture does not irritate even the most troubled skin, and instead it helps to tighten pores for an overall healthier and younger-looking complexion."
How to use:
Apply the cream generously on your face at the end of your skincare routine both day and night.
This moisturizer comes in a nice glass jar with a simple sliver lid. This for sure isn't something you'd want to be carrying around though since it is quite heavy. I have actually seen this product on the memeshop and was curious to try it, so I'm happy I got this in my box :).
I think this i will be an awesome moisturizer for me in the winter time, which is equivalent to 9/12 months here in the West coast of Canada LOL. This will nicely replace my L'occitane shea butter face moisturizer I loved to use for the past three years which costs $45 a jar :S.
The second to last product is EXPENSIVEEEEEEEE~ DAMNNN LOL. It is Soy Bio+ fermented lumpoule retailing for $174 for 14 X 5 mL. One of these little glass bottles contains 5 mL. These are full sized products but are considered samples to me since it isn't 14 bottles. That will come to $24.85 for the two bottles. The little bottles are 1.5 cm X 5 cm. THEY'RE SO CUTE :D. Smell-o-scale rating: 4/10. It smells very green, like raw bean sprouts and nothing else. You can definitely tell these are fermented.
"This "Lumpoule" is a word combining two words-lump and ampoule- and is basically a facial ampoule made from real Korean fermented soy bean lump. It'll work to prevent formation of fine lines and wrinkles and also brighten up your overall complexion."
How to use:
After toner application, apply 2-3 drops of the ampoule on your face and pat it in for full absorbency.
I like how memebox made their own packaging for these samples :D. CUTE!
These little glass bottles are so cute!
Of course, like any ampoule, this is also a oil texture and is running.
The last product is Nuganic Customized Pure snail color control cream or Nuganic customized sun base color control cream retailing for $54 and contains 40 mL. The squeezey tube has a pump which is super nice and measures 2 cm X 15 cm.
"Enriched with snail mucus extracts, aloe vera leaf, lemon, and various plant extracts, this easy to use CC cream works to balance out the skin's oil/ moisture level for a silky smooth finish to your makeup! It will cover up major skin imperfections and leave your skin glowing with a natural shine. Also, the high SPF helps protect your skin from the scorching sun for a long period of time."
How to use:
Spread the CC cream evenly over your face and pat it in for full adherence.
I really was wishing I would get the Snail CC cream but you can't always win. That's okay :D. I need SPF too so I'm happy. This CC cream is just like any other CC cream with the color beads and color adjusting.
Did anyone end up getting the snail version though?
I think this CC cream might actually match my skin tone! YEY :D. I can't wait to try it.

Overall I can't say I'm satisfied. The only couple products I'm looking forward to using are Yufit eon wheat-germ cream, nuganic CC cream and maybe the detoxifying mask.

Stars I give? 2 out of 5 stars
