Unboxing: Memebox special #42 OMG 3

#42 OMG 3
Finally I am finishing off the trio, this is OMG 3 box.  The OMG 2, which I did just recently un-box,  I really liked. This one, I can't say I'm even happy to open it.  Why?  BECAUSE THE MAKEOLLI SOAP SMELLS SO BAD T_T.  I usually have my boxes sitting on the table right next to me, but right now, I have to type and have the box half way across the table, far far far away from me.  I don't know what the smell is, but it smells super strong, super werid, and super garbagey.  Blahh....  I'll get more into detail as I do this unboxing, but damn my nose are struggling.

$29.00 + shipping
 As always, coupons will be included at the end of the post.  Read on to see what I think about this edition's OMG.
 The usual information card, which comes in handy.  So don't throw these away guys.
 Five products this time around.
 It always amazes me how they can package everything with just the box of each product and nothing ever breaks. *Knocks on wood*, I do not wish for anything to break from memebox :).  Please oh meme gods.
 Looks like a promising line up.
 First product is On the body Makegeolli soap retailing for $12 and contains 85 g.  This is a full sized product measuring at 6 cm x 2 cm.  Smell-o-scale= Out of this world.  What is that smell.  I don't even know, I can't even pin point the scent.  It smells like fermented garbage, then using fresh herbs to try and hide the scent.  I'm sorry... I can't use this product.  It is also contamination my other products in the box.

Ahh... I'm writing this after I read the description.  I usually don't read the description until I type it out for you guys.  No wonder it smells HELLLLLLLA funky. I'm not brave enough to rub this over my face.

Product description:
Makegoli is a milky white rice wine made from fermented rice, wheat and water, and it has been the oldest alcoholic beverage in Korea (from the 10th Ceuntry).  With the rising interest in "well-being" food or beverage in Korea recently, makegolli has become a trend amount the younger generations.  Its health and beauty benefits come from the fact that it's unfiltered which means it contains the lactic acid, fiber, vitamins and the good bacteria also found in yogurt.

How to use:
After cleansing face with lukewarm water 2-3 times, gently roll the soap bar with your hands onto the skin, moving from the inner contour towards the outer contour of your face.  Then, softly pat all over your face 5-10 times to make sure the Makegeolli ferments soak deep into the skin.  Rinse off to finish the cleansing routine.
The devil brought this soap... didn't they.  DIDN'T THEY!
The second product is Cleomee three layer perfume donkey oil mist retailing for $59 (WHAT?!?!) and contains 100 mL.  This is a full sized product and measures 3.5 cm x 16 cm.  Smell-o-scale=4/10.  When you first spray it, it smells heavily of rubbing alcohol but once it dries, it has a light scent of a slightly sweet candy smell.

When I got my first donkey product was from the milk box, and I absolutely love love love the moisturizer.  So when I saw the spoiler and it was a three layer donkey oil mist, I was quite happy.  Now that I read the name again, it sounds like donkey's oil O__o.  There was some concern on another box that came with a horse oil face mask, but I read the description and it is donkey's MILK with oil.  Okay okay, I'm less freaked out.

Product description:
This three-layer perfume donkey oil mist is a fragrant triple layer milk and oil body mist that provides an instant moisture surge with its organic mix.  Can you imagine saying "give me a sec, let me spray my donkey mist!"  The donkey oil is basically an all-natural EGF complex rich in various nutrients, and the donkey milk with its milky goodness far exceeds cow's milk and even goat's milk in its similarity to mother's breast milk.  Both the donkey oil and milk are highly prized to have been the secret to Cleopatra's beauty regimen.

How to use:
Whenever your skin feels dehydrated, shake the bottle well to mix the 3 layers of oil together and spray it evenly from 15-20 cm away from the skin.
The spray on this bottle sprays out a fine mist, which is the one thing I look for in a good spray bottle.  I hate it when I use a spray and the product just comes out in a shot and not a mist and is not even.  Pain in the butt.  I did forget to take a picture of the product after shaking it, but it just has a lime green color.

When I tested the product on the back of my hand, the product went on my skin very watery.  But I rubbed it into my skin and it left my skin slightly greasy for about 5 minutes before fully absorbing into the skin.  After it was absorbed, my skin felt very soft :).  I'm looking forward to testing out this product!  Excited.
The third product is Migabee bee venom and honey cream retailing for $54 and contains 50 mL.  This is a full sized product measuring at 5.5 cm x 5 cm.  The jar is actually glass so it is slightly heavy, smell-o-scale=6/10 and it smells slightly herbally and kind of light the clinical prescribed cream scent as well.

I did get a product from the same brand in my honey box, which was a peeling gel.  So I was super duper happy to get the moisturizer to go with it! And it has bee venom is not an item that is in my massive collection, so I'm super happy about that.  I love me some moisturizing creams, welcome to the family little guy!  Wow, I'm talking to skincare products now? I'm having a bit of issue LOL.  Someone help me....

Product description:
A bee venom cream for moisturizing your face?  It may sound a bit intimidating to some, but in fact this cream-rich in bee venom, royal jelly, and rejuvenate the skin!  Not only will it moisturize and sooth but it'll also brighten up the complexion and treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face.

How to use:
Apply the cream evenly over your face. Let it soak into your skin.  It is also recommended to mix in a drop of facial oil or ampoule with the cream to be applied as an overnight pack.
Haha can you see my fingers and my little point and shoot camera?
The texture of the cream again, I wouldn't really call this a cream but a cream gel.  A cream to me is like the L'occitane shea butter moisturizer.  That is a cream.  This cream absorbs into the skin quickly and does not leave residue on my skin.
The fourth product is Tony moly delight tint crayon 06 neon pink retailing for $8 and contains 2.8 g.  This is a full sized product measuring at 1.3 cm x 11 cm.  Smell-o-scale= 6/10 and it smells like Japanese strawberries gum :).  Yum!

When I saw spoilers on instagram, I was really underwhelmed with the selection in this box.  But the more I read into the description, the more I'm interested in it.  This looks like a normal lip crayon color right?  Nope!  This GLOWS IN THE DARK!  HELLLLO~ WHAAAA... I have seen glow in the dark make up, but never really wanted to buy it or even had the interest to try it but I mean i have it now so LETS DO THIS!  LOL Now I need one of those black lights, off to ebay I go~

Product description:
Tony moly presents you with the one and only delight tint crayon that makes your lips glow in the dark!  It shows as a lovely pink under the daylight, but under the strobe lights, your lips will turn into a hot neon pink!

How to use:
Softly apply the lip crayon over your upper and lower lips.  Multiple applications are recommended for a full, radiant lip, whenever necessary.
This looks like s super cute color, not anything I usually wear.  Well I usually just wear lip balm since I'm always in a hurry to go to work, so it would look super weird to just have make up just on my lips.  But I will try this on :).  I'm trying to slow down on buying memebox since I need to start doing reviews on the products I get and not be a hoarder damn it! But memebox always gets me with the awesome themes they come out with. Curses!
The actual product only comes with 3 cm.  It would be a good thing if you have a lot of make up, bad if you use this color often and you'd have to keep buying more.  But at $8 (or less), its not too too bad.
The last product is Tosowoong platinum pore tightening pack retailing for $19 and contains 150 mL.  This is a full sized product measuring at 4 cm x 17.5 cm.  

The packaging and the brief description of this didn't really interest me, but a memefriend under the name vertiazy was lovin' it and slightly raving about it on instagram.  So NOW, I'm excited to give this product a try.  Not gonna open this jusssst yet but I will soon :).  I have a blackhead problem, as you know by now, on my nose and they just won't go away! They come back in just one day after I squeeze them out.  Sigh.. why so stubborn.

Product description:
Control oil slick and dull skin from blackhead overload with this Platinum pore tightening pack. Infused with platinum gold powder and tea tree oil, this pore tightening pack not only tightens pores, but also gently removes all blackheads and impurities within the pores.  Gentle enough for the most sensitive types of skin, yet powerful.

How to use:
Cleanse the skin and pat dry with a towel.  Evenly distribute the content onto the face avoiding the eyes and mouth area and wait for 10-15 minutes.  Rinse with lukewarm water.
This is a really big bottle.  I would never finish it!!!  Boyfriend, get your big face over here and help me finish it!

In the beginning of this blog post, I really didn't like this box.  The weird fermented soap really turned me off from even opening the box because the smell was so off putting.  But now that I have actually read the description, my first impression changed from HELL no to... hmm, not too shabby.  I give this box a 3.5/5 stars. I'm super excited to try the bee venom moisturizer, the tightening pore pack and the lip color too! The donkey oil mist will be super useful for the upcoming winter weather.  I give this box a passing grade.  I really wish they did not put the weird smelling soap in the box.  I guess that was the OMG factor? Jokes... LOL.
