Unboxing: Memebox special #22 2014 K-beauty wrap up No. 1

#22 2014 K-Beauty Wrap-Up No.1

 This is the first K-beauty wrap up that memebox has come up with.  I was so excited when I saw this, mostly because of the usual mystery and the name sounded so epic!  I don't know what I was expecting, but I guess I thought it would be the most popular and the best selling items that would be in this box.

My boxes have been coming to me quite slow compared to the usual 5-7 business days.  This box came at 12:20 pm, an hour later then usual and another mail man instead of my usual mail lady :(. Where is Kim!  When the mailman rang my door bell, he also knocked so loud and so hard that I thought my door would just be knocked over like in the movies.  Scared the crap out of me to be honest.  Maybe it is pay back for me scaring him last time HAHA.  I've been reading the makeuptalk forum and everyone's boxes have been held up or really slow so i guess it is not just me.

$29.00 + shipping

As always, just in case, I have linked the box so if ever in the future when it is restocked, you can always check it out!
 Sneak peek :).

Make sure to check out the end of the blog post for active coupons for you to save some money!

 Are you curious to see what is in the box?
The information card that is in English and not Korean :D.  Make sure to not throw these away, well that is unless you read Hangul.

 The big reveal!
 The criminals in the memebox, mug shot line up! Everybody hands up! >:(

 The first product is Secret Key body and dress perfume mist retailing for $10 and contains 80 mL.  This is a full sized product and was randomly selected from 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07.  The clear plastic bottle measures 3 cm x 14 cm.  Smell-o-scale= 3/10.  It is not very strong, quite subtle but then again it is a mist. To me it slightly smells like men's cologne + citrus + hint of floral?  Haha I really don't know what it smells like, that is just what it smells like to me.

Product description:
From Jasmine, musk, citrus to floral and fruity, Secret key's popular perfume mist comes in 7 different fragrance each with its own flavor and spice to it!  These perfume mists can be sprayed on your body, hair and clothes.

How to use:
Spray the perfume mist generously over wherever you wish to apply the scent.
The second product is RiRe lip manicure retailing for $18 and contains 10 mL.  I got the color 07 Pink pink (hot pink color) and was randomly selected from 01 warm peach, 02 Virgin Orange, 03 Deep plum, 04 rich raspberry, 05 muse red, 06 chiffon coat or 07 pink pink.  This is a full sized product and measures 2 cm x 6 cm and on my smell-o-scale= 4/10 and it smells just like fruit gummies!  I love the scent :D.

I can't say this would be a color I use since I an still not really comfortable with bold lip colors.  I usually like brownish nudes, light purples, and sometimes oranges but pinks I naturally shy away from for some odd reason.  But I will have to try this out since it is a pretty color!  I hope it works with my skin tone and doesn't make me look like a ratchet chicken.

Product description:
What exactly is a lip manicure, you might ask?  RiRe's sensational lips series- Lip manicure- refers to 7 different vivid lip colors that boost the level of color radiance and long-lasting finish of nail manicures.  Plus, they're totally waterproof and do not wear off when you eat, drink, or talk.

How to use:
Thinly apply the lip manicure over your lips as you would with an actual nail polish.  Do not touch or close your mouth for a minute until it completely dries.

Here is the swatch of the lip manicure.
The third product is Secret nature From jeju cream retailing for $31 and contains 50 mL.  This is a full sized product and the glass jar measures 6 cm x 5 cm.  I'm actually not going to open this cream since it is sealed on the inside and I have so many other moisturizers I have opened.  I will have to do a review later on when I do use it.

I'm always happy to get moisturizers since my skin is dry and it is the one product I always have to buy. :D  But Jeju just makes me think of the sad sunken ferry :(.  My heart goes out to the families that has lost their loved ones.  It really makes me angry to know someone that selfish would tell their passengers to stay inside.  Anyways I'm not going to get too much into my feelings but I hope they find closure and not live in anger for the rest of their lives.

Product description:
Made from organic broccoli, aloe vera leaf, asparagus and carrot extracts all cultivated pesticide-free in the Jeju Island, Secret nature's from jeju cream is extremely gentle to skin and works to deeply nourish and create a protective moisture layer over your skin to lock in the moisture, for a more radiant and glowing complexion.

How to use:
Apply the cream at the last stage of your skincare routine and gently pat it in for full absorbency.
The fourth product is The skin house Dr. clear magic stick roll retailing for $22 and contains 15 mL.  This is a full sized product.  The glass bottle is just like any perfume roll on and measures 1.5 cm x 9 cm.  Smell-o-scale=2/10 with not much smell but I detect a slight hint of floral.

I'm not sure how much use I can get this to work for me since I don't have acne prone skin nor do I get any pimples usually.  I just have some redness and annoying blackheads.  So most likely I will be passing this onto my boyfriend who has quite acne prone skin around the sides of his face.  Not sure how hygienic it is to use a roller ball though since you roll the dirty and oil back into the container :/.

Product description:
Dr. clear magic stick roll is an easy to carry around roll-on-type of spot treatment and it can be used whenever and wherever your skin is in a need of emergency care.

How to use:
Gently roll the magic stick roll over troublesome spots on your face.
I actually quite like the simple glass roller ball packaging.  It feels nice holding it kekekeke.
The fifth product is OSEQUE dual sun block retailing for $46 and contains 70 mL.  This is a full sized product and measures 1.5 cm x 4 cm x 14 cm.  The white plastic bottle with the two functions, squeeze bottle and spray bottle, is genius and I don't know why I haven't seen any North American brands come out with such packaging!  Smell-o-scale= 5/10 and smells like sun screen.

As I was just smelling it for you guys, i was squeezing the bottle and just sprayed some up my nose :(. So nasty T____T.

Product description:
This is a mild sunblock enriched with various naturally-derived ingredients and suitable to be used for all family members.  A distinctive feature of the Dual sun block is that it's spray-type on one end and cream-type on the other end, so you can choose which application you prefer on different parts of your body and for different occasions.

How to use:
Spray or spread the Sun block over your face and body before heading outdoors and re-applying every couple of hours for best results.  (Note: when used as a spray type, make sure to shake it enough before application.
 Genius right!
The sunscreen itself is very light in texture but it leaves my skin quite slick which I don't really like.  We will have to see overtime if it will work out.
The last product is W.Holic roll on perfume retailing for $21 and contains 10 mL.  This is  afull sized product and is randomly selected from 14 different fragrances.  I got the scent Marry.  Smell-o-scale= 5/10 and the first note I smell smells like fresh grass and then there is a hint of musk.  The glass bottle measures 1.5 cm x 9 cm.

The notes on t he website for this perfume is Butter, Orange Essence, Fresia Bouquet, Magnolia Rose, Rose Petal, White Cedar, Musk Veil.  I actually thought I liked it since it smelled really nice in the bottle but on the skin, it smells just like grass and musk. Not really a big fan.

Product description:
Capturing the spirit of women, the WHolic vision is not about one singular woman, but rather about the rich and varied personalities of all Wholic women.  Free of any alcohol and other chemicals, WHolic fragrance oils are consists of only fruit and other natural ingredients that won't irritate the skin.  The fragrance consists of a top, middle and base not that caresses the entire body, leaving a subtle fragrance that lasts all day.  The effect is a chic, comfortable and entirely addictive fragrance that lasts all day!

How to use:
Roll on the perfume onto your wrists, neck and wherever else needed on the body for a subtle fragrance.

Overall I can't say this a box I like.  Nothing really excites me.  This box came with two scent products, one treatment product, one lip product, one moisturizer and one sunscreen.  I think they could have went with just one scent product, and gave us another different product.  I'd only give this box a 1.5/5 stars.  I really doesn't have bought this box :(.  Not too happy or satisfied with it but I mean I didn't pay too much for it so it isn't that big of a lose.
