Haha this is absolutely no surprise anymore, two more memeboxes for me equals two unboxings for you on the same day (well at least I will try). I'm really excited for these two boxes though! I got here the vitamin care and smile care. I actually wasn't going to get the vitamin care since I thought it might be a dud, but I'm wrong :O. I wanted just the smile care box but then the individual sale one was sold out, so I broke down and bought these two HAHA. Yep, no will power.
Make sure to enter my August memebox contest giveaway if you want the chance to win this box, at home superbox or dermo cosmetics box!
For those that are interested in this box, it is still available! And I would recommend this box but for sure, make sure it is for you. Keep reading ;).
$29.00 + shipping (earn back 3 memepoints)As always, here is the sneak peek of the box.
Also if you haven't noticed the ugly names on all my pictures, I don't want to be copyrighted again :S. So please pardon the ugliness but it is a must now.
Close up! Are you excited now!
The normal information card. Again, never a good lighting for these pictures and scans are even weirder LOL.
I love how memebox always packs the boxes. It is so nice and organized and nothing really moves.
Mug shot line up :D. Some got shot down.
The first product is so damn cute! JUST LOOK AT IT! It is Elizavecca Real white vita-sauce 30 retailing for $48 and containing 50 mL. This is a full sized product. The sleek brown glass bottle measures 3 cm x 11.5 cm. Smell-o-scale= 0, it doesn't smell like anything :).
I can't say I'm happy I got another ampoule since I do have tons by now, but another one is welcomed. This one contains ascorbic acid with vitamin C. I've been getting some sun spots recently so maybe this can help, and hopefully it will moisturize my skin during the winter time.
"With pure vitamin C consisting over 30% of the facial ampoule, this is a highly concentrated vitamin ampoule which provides instant moisture, whitening care, wrinkle-care and skin protection all in one!"
How to use:
Apply 2-3 drops of the ampoule and pat it in for full absorbency. Make sure to shake the bottle well before application so that the vitamin capsules in the ampoule can be evenly applied over your skin.
I hope you can see this, English ingredients!
Let's just have a moment of silence for the packaging. So many things right. The pig, the logo, cartoon, everything. I love it and it makes me want to use it, not because I know it is good but because it is so stinkin cute! I just checked out the other items they have from this brand, everything is so cute!
The packaging is the sciencey glass dropper which I love :). Standard for ampoules and essence.
The texture is like any other ampoule, pretty much just like a thin oil which you can tell from the ampoule running down my hand.
The second product is Amini vitamin shower body soap bar retailing for $12 and contains 120 g. This is a full sized product. It measures 6 cm x 7 cm.
This really reminds me of Lush! They have handmade soaps that are expensive as F************* LOL but I do love honey i washed the kids but I only buy it during the buy one get one free but I'd have to be one of the first few people. I'm not going to open this bar yet since I have tons to go through but I will do reviews when I do use it.
"Amini is a brand that emphasizes "enjoyment of natural affluence" within reasonable prices and strives to provide health-beneficial beauty products with only the best and natural formula. This Body soap bar works to rejuvenate the skin with its gentle and replenishing formula consisting of vitamin-rich rosehip, lavender, and peppermint oils."
How to use:
Lather the soap bar with water to create foams and gently massage it onto your face. Cleanse throughly with your fingers and rinse off with warm water.
The third product is Pure smile gel citrus crash hand sanitizer retailing for $2 each and contains 30 mL. This little plastic bottle measures 4 cm x 7 cm and smell-o-scale= 6/10 and it smells like citrus (of course) and a strong smell of rubbing alcohol (of course).
This most likely will be given to my friend Jojo since I do not really use hand sanitizer because I'm a germ myself ;P and I don't like my hands to be dried.
"Keep your hands germ-free with Pure Smile's citrus-infused Hand gel. It's always easy to forget that our hands are the dirtiest part of our body with so many germs and bacteria going through without ever getting noticed! This super-cute Hand gel is easy to carry around and the lovely citrus scent will refresh both your body and soul."
How to use:
Apply the hand gel on dried hands and pat it in until all's absorbed.
The fourth product is Pure smile (again?) gelee labo marmalade retails for $1 and contains 12 g. This packaging reminds me a lot like those little jam packages you get form hotels! It is so cute! Too bad you can't really find pure smile products online which is a shame because I do really like the next product and their lip scrubs are nice too and they are all affordable.
In the description title for this product, it doesn't really say what it is but it is a face mask.
"Pure smile gelee labo series are facial packs with jam-like texture made from nutrition-rich fruits and they work to moisturize and soften the skin. The orange extracts, hyaluronic acid, centella asiatica, and licorice root extracts complex treats roughened skin texture and improve the skin elasticity."
How to use:
After cleansing, spread the pack evenly over your face, avoiding the eyes and the mouth. Rest for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
It does look like orange jam! Its so cute!
The fifth product I really love already. This is Pure smile lip treatment mix fruits retailing for $5 and contains 10 g. This is a full sized product and the tube measures 1cm x 9 cm.
Just a few days ago, I finally broke down and bought the bite beauty agave lip mask which costs $30 which I found ridiculously expensive so I put it off for a good year until just three days ago since they had three times the points for me since i am a VIB. But I might even be returning that since I have this and it is just as good and soooooooooo much cheaper!
"Made from various fruits rich in vitamin E, snail mucus extracts, hyaluronic acid, shea butter and macadamia seed oil, this lip treatment delivers instant hydration and nourishment to dry, chapped lips.
How to use:
Apply a small amount of the lip treatment over your lips whenever necessary. It's highly recommended to use the lip treatment overnight as well.
I am loving this lip treatment! It is nice and thick, but not sticky which is awesome! And it lasts on my lips for three to four hours! So you can just use this as a lip balm and wouldn't even have to reapply. Too bad there isn't an official website for pure smile for me to see what else pure smile has to offer because I am loving you!
The squeeze tube cones with the traditional slanted lip gloss applicator with the hole in the middle.
The lip treatment itself is clear and smells like mango jello powder. I love it! Once you use it on your lips, there is a slight tingle on the lips and it is nice and moisturizing :).
The second to last product was the spoiler that memebox released for use to crave for. This is Evas vitamin sun cream SPF 38 PA+++ retailing for $11 and contains 50 mL. This is a full sized product and 1 cm x 12.5 cm. Smell-o-scale= 5/10, and it smells like sunscreen and the generic Korean floral.
"A smart vitamin-rich Sun cream which guarantees UV protection, wrinkle care and skin brightening effects all in one! This gentle sun care product spreads smoothly onto the skin and absorbs quickly without being sticky at all."
How to use:
Take an adequate amount on your hands and apply it evenly over your face.
I'm quite happy I got another sun screen because, well I really hate spending money on sun screen. I grew up in Canada so the Korean skincare craze hasn't really taken me yet, at least the skincare routine part, but memebox is pushing me towards that direction for sure. So sunscreen is always welcomed :). So is BB cream and CC cream.
Nothing really special, just a sunscreen. But at least it does not leave my skin greasy or sticky! Good sign! Update later on.
The last product is Pure smile juicy point pads lemons and orange retailing for $2 each and contains 17 mL. These are full sized product and I'm glad they gave us two! Maybe memebox is listening finally!
"Enriched with vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and collagen components, the Juicy point pads are ideal for quick skin emergencies bath on your face and on your body. These point masks will instantly soothe and moisturize irritated skin whenever and whenever needed, and plus they come in super adorable designs!"
How to use:
After cleansing, dry your face and stick on a point pad on irritated or dehydrated area of your face or body. Rest for 5-10 minutes, remove the pad, and pat in the remaining essence.
We have gotten these in mask edition four but i don't mind getting these again :). These are super fun and I can't wait to use it!
Okay, I thought they were going to tell us that you can use it on our boobies LOL. But this time you can use it on your feet? Weird....
I like that they gave us two. We got orange and lemon :D. I can't wait to use these and I might even share these with my friends and family :).

Overall I think this box is just right. Honestly it has been a while since I got a 5/5 stars box, but i will give this a perfect score. You got the hands, face, body and lips all in one box. You got variety and you got just enough. Maybe not so much with the pure smile gelee but you do get seven products in this box that costed $29. Not too shabby :). I give this box three gold star stickers, 5/5, thumbs up!
Again if anyone is interested with this box, it is still available.
