Unboxing: Memebox superbox #31 Herbal cosmetics

I'm super happy I got my memeboxes today. Hehe tomorrow morning I get another one.  So I'm trying to get these unboxings up before the next one comes or else I'll fall behind.  I put a lot of detail into my post so i hope someone will appreciate it :).
 When the box came out, it didn't really tickle my fancy that much as the other boxes available.  But i bit the bullet and bought it before they changed the shipping policy.  I know quite a few people were upset because they stated "packed with beauty products made from organic herbs such as lavender, tea tree, chamomile, or peppermint" but stated nothing about florals.  We don't know what we are getting specifically inside the box so we have to base it on the description to help us.  Some people felt as though the were cheated since there were two rose products and it stated nothing about rose.  I understand where they are coming from, but personally I don't mind since I'm just go with the flow and try new things :D.
Let's get started shall we! Are you excited?  

P.S. The herbal box is still up for grabs if anyone is interested! Link is down below and you get back 3 memepoints with my link :).
BTW I bought this box for $32 + shipping.
Here's the usual information card.  Super helpful for the mass majority that doesn't read Korean.

 The raw look at a freshly opened box. Looks awesome and something is smelling greeeeat!
The not so mug shot line up.  We have some casualties here.
The grand arrangement!  Ohhh.. ahhh~
 First up is the Calmia Herb cleansing oil gel which retails for $18 and contains 100 mL.  This is a full size product.  The tube is 5 cm in diameter and 14 cm in height.

Product description:
"With a nourshing blend of organic argan oil and organic complex- lavender, rosemary, chamomille, basil leaf, green tea extracts- this Herb cleansing oil helps maintain skin clear, soft, and comfortable.  Also, it turns into milk-colored foam that won't droop like average cleansing oils when lathered with water, allowing for a thorough cleansing deep down into your pores."

How to use:
Pump out a small amount, massage it onto your face and rinse off with warm water.
 This is a simplistic tube with a nice pump which you can control. Nothing much I can say about this product.  I haven't tried a gel cleanser so this would be a nice experiment.
 The product itself is a clear gel.  Scent wise, i'd give it a 4/10 and it smells like a clean baby.  Slightly baby powder scented with a hint of baby wipe.
 The second product is Calmia Rooibos aqua sprinkler gel cream which retails for $34 and contains 150 mL.  The tube is 5 cm in diameter and 15 cm in height.

Product description:
"Rooibos aqua sprinkler gel is a pudding-textured moisturizing gel which can be used as a all-in-one cosmetic for skin booster, toner, emulsion, essence, and gel cream.  Rooibos extracts and sparkling water delivers nutrition-rich minerals and deep hydration to your skin.  Uniquely, it can be sprayed on like a mist from a distance, but when you pump it close to the skin, the texture comes out like a whitish gel cream!"

How to use:
Spray from about 20 cm away from your face and gently pat it in for absorbency.
 Okay, I got a bone to pick with this stupid pump.  IT IS NOT WORKING FOR ME.  WHY!  I'm pumping like a crazy monkey and nothing is coming out.  URGH!  Now I'm annoyed and tired T_T.
 It is suppose to be a white gel cream but well.... the damn pump doesn't work. :'(.  The texture is very light and absorbs into the skin fast.  Scent wise I'd give it a 6/10.  There is a strong smell of citrus, orange specifically.  It smells like freshly cut oranges.  Yum :D.
 The third product is Nasarang Herb B.B. SPF 50+ PA+++ retailing for $46 and contains 30 g.  This is a full sized product. The tube is 1 cm in diameter and 15 cm in height.

Product description:
"A blemish balm (BB) made from various herbal and grain extracts, this is a premium BB cream for anti-wrinkle care, UV protection, and complexion brightening.  It will replenish moisture to the skin, leaving it beaming with a natural glow.  Despite its skin brightening property, it can be used for almost all skin types since it doesn't necessarily whiten your skin color; it'll only smooth out and cover imperfections."

How to use:
Apply an adequate amount evenly over your face and pat it in for better adherence and a longer-lasting finish.

 What the... that's a funny looking seal LOL.

 This BB cream matches my skin tone better then the CC cream I got in the snail box.  The coverage seems quite nice, i'd say it is a medium coverage.  Scent wise, there isn't much scent that I can pick up.
 Fourth product is Skinfood bath salt honey jasmine retailing for $3 each and contains 80 g.  This is a full sized product.

Product description:
"Made from various herbal extracts and mineral-rich organic salt from Australia, Skinfood's bath salt will alleviate and replenish your tired body and soul."

How to use:
Filil your bath tub with warm water and pour in the entire pack (80g).  Enjoy a natural aroma scented bath.
 The smell of this product is amazing.  This is the first time I smelled when I opened my box.  It's so strong that I can smell it through the packaging.  Sadly I don't take much baths, but maybe I will just for this product.  The scent is very bubbly to me which a strong herbal scent.  It makes me very awake (keep in mind I just worked a 8.5 hour work shift and staying up for three hours now to get these posts up and my eyes are heavy as fffffffffffffffffffffffff).
 Second to last product is Rose Mine azulene calming gel retailing for $29 each and contains 75 mL.  This is a full sized product.

Product description:
"Sooth, moisturize and cool your dried, sun-burnt skin with this Azulene calming gel.  Its gentle formula chamomille extracts help alleviate redness, smooth out roughened skin texture and even reduces red blemishes."

How to use:
Apply the calming gel before sunscreen application or after a long outdoor activity under the sun.  You can even apply it at the office because your skin also needs to be protected from the heat generated from computers.

I never heard that heat rays from computers can ruin your skin.... hmm.  That is quite interesting.  Koreans and their skincare routines are very thorough so I trust them in the skincare department.  I'm excited to use this since I know my boyfriend can use some of this.
The last product is Kskin rose sense 100% essential oil retailing for $42 and contains 5 mL.  This is a full sized product.

Product description:
"This smart essential oil can be used for multiple functions- as a scented perfume when dropped on your clothes or under-arms, as an aroma bath oil, as a body massage oil and also as your secret perfume for when you're suffering from monthly period and its annoying stench.

How to use:
Use 1-2 drops of the essential oil when intended as a scented perfume.  Drop more when use as bath oil.

LOL Did I read the period part right? I don't think i would every use it to get rid of the blood smell, I'd just take a shower? HAHA I'm dying.  I'm not sure if I want to use this since I'm not a essential oil person so I'll keep it sealed for now.  But I'm pretty sure it smells like rose, yes I'm captain obvious.

*Prices in purple are prices I found through official site  or popular online stores*

Total box value:
1) Calmia Herb cleansing oil gel $18 ($14.65 USD/ 15,000 Won)
2) Calmia Rooibos Aqua sprinkler gel cream $34 ($27.33 USD/ 28,000 Won) 
5) Rose mine azulene calming gel $29 (??)
6) Kskin rose sense 100% essential oil $42 ($34.17 USD/ 35,000 Won)
Total: $172 on the info card
Total: $154.15 in reality

Overall, I'm not really super excited about much in this box.  I think it is because that they are basic pieces to skincare routines.  I usually don't appreciate basics until I really need them so I won't say this is a bad box. I'm excited for the cleansing oil gel and the BB cream.  The azulene calming gel will be very useful for my boyfriend and the rose essential oil will maybe come to good use for my mom since she loves scented products. I'd give this box a 3/5 for satisfaction.
