Yesterday was an awesome day. Well not very awesome to start with but my day was lifted up when I received my memebox. Not one, but TWO memeboxes in one day :'). I love buying things online because it comes in a box. I mean yes yes, it's great to buy things in person too, but something about getting stuff in boxes just makes it that much better.
So unlike how they come in the hot pink plastic parcel bags, when you buy multiples and they ship on the same date, they are shipped to you in a cardboard box. My package this time was pretty heavy. You don't even understand the feeling of sitting on the car, driving home and you can't open the package until you get home to your usual background and nicer camera. T_T It is like going to a drive in Mcdonald's and being told not to eat anything in the car until we get home. I mean come on! The smell of the fries....I mean..... Its going to get cold and won't be the same! :'(
A sneaky peeky of the milk box. I know you want to see what is inside of it :).
Make sure to stay until the end for coupons and links to my other unboxing posts too!
Also follow me on instagram if you would like to be the first to see when i receive my memeboxes and other random stuff I do with my life LOL. I'm a troll btw....
The usual card that comes with each package to explain what the products are and how to use it.
I don't know why but I can never get a decent picture when I take a picture of the card. Maybe because the card is white? Sorry guys, I wish it looks better but it always comes out like this.
What the box looks like when opened without anything being touched. Ohhh... Ahhhh.....
Arranged all artsy fartsy.
The first product is Hello Everybody bubble bath steam milk retailing for $4 each and contains $4 each. This is a full sized product.
"Here's the perfect beauty get-away for you girls out there who's feeling weary and stressed out after a long day. Take a hot, bubble bath with hello everybody's steam milk, and its mild vanilla fragrance and abundant steam bubbles will gently soothe both your body and mind. The almond oil, chamomile and rosemary leaf extracts also included in the product help soften and nourish the skin."
How to use:
Pour in the bath powder into your bathtub and fill it with hot water (37-38). Bubbles will be formed as the water fills up the tub. Enjoy a hot bubble bath for 15-20 minutes and rinse off.
When I got to finally open my boxes, something smelled soo good in the milk box. I couldn't pinpoint what it was until I smelled this. It smells less like milk, more like a more powdery sweet vanilla scent. Kind of smells like a nice sweet powder bath and body works candle to me haha.
Sorry, scents are quite hard to describe and I will tend to describe it quite funny. So if it smells like poop, I'll tell you it smells like poop with a hint of sweaty gym sock LOL. But this smells sooooooooo good. UGH. I want to just take a bath now! Sadly I am too lazy to scrub my bathtub down, so I'm more of a shower person. But when I treat myself, i will for sure try this first.
The powder is very fine and it is a light yellow color.
I also have a bone to pick with products which you can only use one time. I can't tell if I like something if I only use it one time. In this box, there are three products out of seven products that i can only use
The second product is yet another Hello everybody product called Nature Holic Body Lotion milk retailing for $25 each and contains 300 mL. This is a full sized product.
"This all-natural body lotion is made from organic goat milk which is extremely gently, moisturizing, and fast absorbing. It's also rich in aloe vera, honey, lemon balm and spear mint extracts and thus carries a very strong moisture-locking formula to keep your skin smooth and supple."
How to use:
After a shower, towel dry and generously apply the body lotion all over your body.
This was the product the product that was making my milk memebox so heavy! This thing is huge! I don't want to open it yet since I have about seven unopened body shop body butters to go through, but when I do, I will for sure do a review on how it is :).
The third product I have here is Pure smile choosy lip scrub. It retails for $11 each and contains 25 g. In this box, you could either get Peach milk or Chamomile milk. I got here the chamomile milk.
"This gently Choosy lip scrub is packed with all sorts of natural goodies- sugar, peach extracts, milk protein extracts, chamomile extracts, bees wax- for reomoving dead skins, deeply nourishing, and adding an extra luster to your dry chapped lips."
How to use:
Gently roll the lip scrub on your drip lips. After massaging, remove the dead skins off with a warm towel or tissue. Apply a nourishing lip treatment to soothe and moisturize your lips.
The back of the cute zip lock baggie outer packaging.
I usually don't even bother with lip scrubs since my dead lip skin just comes off naturally when I brush my teeth. When I wake up in the morning, my lips are super chapped since I am too lazy to do much for my lips. Once my lips hit water and I am brushing my teeth, my dead skin just turns white and I rub it off. So therefore I do not really bother with lip scrubs but this will be interesting to try.
I honestly wish I got the peach milk instead because I like anything fruity scented. This one I got was the chamomile milk scented and I really don't know how I feel about it. The scent is not very strong, I'd give it 2/5. It is faintly floral scented with a hint of milk.
Now that I smelled it for the second time, I don't hate it as much as the first time. Maybe the scent I first smelled was a mixture of the lip scrub and something from the oriental medicine skincare product that was on the back on my hand.
The packaging is very straight forward. It comes in a plastic jar with a light pink lid. Look at those juicy lips~
I'm quite confused as choosy is all in Japanese, but it is made in Korea. Hmm... whats going on LOL.
A close up look at the scrub. It is quite fine, but I have still yet to try it so I will have to come back and report on that. Sorry, you can't see much in this picture >_>.
Fourth product, still pure smile! Wow that's three Pure smile brand products so far. I didn't even notice until now haha.
Pure smile milk mask pack which retails for $1 each and contains 23 mL. This is a full size product. One time use >:(. Why!
"Replenish your complexion into a baby-face with this milk mask pack rich in milk protein nutrients which aid in hydrating and smoothing out uneven skin texture."
How to use:
After cleansing your face, place the sheet mask on. Rest for 15-20 minutes before removal. Gently pat in the remaining essence into your skin.
I am in love with sheet mask lately. Maybe because I am preparing myself for the mask edition four memebox. Whoo whoo ;). This is going to be awesome to add to my sheek mask collection. Oh baby! I'm excited for this one ;D
This product is definitely the rock star product of this box. My eyes just went straight to the huge box in my memebox that said DONKEY MILK & argan oil. I put donkey's milk in caps because... DONKEY MILK! WHAT! That is so frinkin cool. And come on, look at that awesome cute packaging. I am so keeping the packaging when it is done with :).
This is skin cermaic donkey milk and argan oil multi steam cream retailing for $34 and contains 100g. This is a full sized product.
"No chemical preservatives, no artificial fragrance, no artificial coloring! Made from 100% organic argan oil and natural donkey milk, know to be more nutritious than milk and goat milk and most similar to mothers' breast milk, this multi-steam cream delivers intensive hydration and nutrition deep down into your skin. The whipped cream-like texture allows it to absorb softly and quickly as well."
How to use:
Apply the cream at the last stage of your skincare routine. Pat in with your hands for better absorbency.
Everything about this product is awesome! Well that is first impression wise. I mean come on! Where are you going to find a product in America that has donkey's milk?!?! I have never seen anything with donkey's milk, or even heard of donkey's milk for beauty product so this is definitely something I am looking forward to try.
Moisturizers are definitely welcomed in my collection since I have dry skin, espically in the winter time which is an absolute killer. I live in Vancouver, so we have about 3 months of summer, and the rest of the year is pretty much winter. LOL so my skin needs as much moisture as possible.
I had no clue what steam cream is so I looked it up on google, of course. What I read was that it was originated in Japan, and then got popular in England too. The goodness from the cream is bounded by steam instead of chemicals that are usually used in cosmetic product.
I don't know if that statement is correct, so feel free to beat me in the comment LOL.
The packaging is very nicely thought out. The jar is 8 cm in circumference and it is plastic I think? It's sliver and the letters seem as though it is metal but I am not sure?
The jar comes with a plastic cover to keep it sanitary.
I am glad to report that the cream does not have any scent. I was scared it was gonna smell like boob milk LOL. Actually I don't know what that smells like.
The cream itself is also very light weight. It is slightly like gel, but it is definitely a cream.
Second to last product is Enesti Rice and milk foaming cleanser which retails for $15 each and contains 120 mL. This is a full sized product
"A foam cleanser made from mineral-rich hot spring water and packed with rice and milk extracts, this product will thorougly cleanse deep into your pores yet deliver rich moisture, leaving your skin glowing with a natural translucence!"
How to use:
Use cleansing oil to remove make up first. Then, apply the lather from the foaming cleanser to create enough foam and gently massage it over your face.
I don't really have much to say but that I am excited for this product too. I don't really experiment with my cleansers since it is such a stable. I have found a better cleanser then my clinique mild liquid soap which dried the crap out of my face which I thought it was normal until I used the Michael Todd true organics honey and oats cleanser. The Michael Todd one does its job, but nothing super fantastic. So hopefully this one is good :). I'm not going to open this just yet since I don't want so many products spoiling at the same time.
The last product is Pure smile choosy lip pack milk retailing for $1 each. This is a full sized product.
"Pamper your chappers lips with Pure Smile's choosy lip pack abundant in milk protein extracts for strengthening the moisture level and reviving the juicy glow of your lips. this easy-to-apply lip patch will help maintain healthy, silky smooth lips!"
How to use:
Take out the lip patch and place it on your lips. Rest for 15-30 mins, remove it and pat the remaining essence.
I have never tried a milk mask before and have seen the Tony moly one around and was quite curious but i wasn`t willing to pay around $3-$4 for it and wait for two weeks or more for it, so I`m happy to get one in memebox :).
Has anyone noticed this? The directions are straight forward enough for me not to have to know Korean or Japanese for me to understand. Peel off the paper backing, stick it on your lips and let it sit. Then take it off and let the essence soak into your lips.
But then there is step three. Peel it off...and put it on your BOOBIES? LOL WHAT? I never have cracking nipples so I never really have to take care of them, but I know (from itsjudytimes vlogs) that if you are breast feeding, they do get dry there and blood would go into the breast milk you are feeding your babies. HAHA I don't know if i should come back and report to you if I tried it on my nipples, but now I'm curious. Challenge excepted.

Overall I like this box. I didn't know what to expect since this is quite a unique spotlight ingredient and I'm happy they included a little bit of everything. I'm super excited for the donkey and argan oil steam cream as well as the cleanser. For the one time use products, I'm on the fence about since it is just one time use and I wouldn't be able to tell if I really like it or not. I would rather get two less products and get a full size, or at least have two of the same thing so I could at least try it twice. Three times would be awesome, but let's not push it now haha.
