When memebox came out with the wine and cheese box, it was like the memegods have heard our prayers. Many of our memebox lovers on different forums, makeup talk and the facebook page, have been discussing about a wine and cheese box for months. So when they did come up with one for sell, I jumped on it as fast as I could since I knew it would be a great box. The one thing that confirmed that it would be a good box is that they promised us Dear by enprani bounce cheese cream which I have been hearing plenty of people all over the globe raving about how amazing it is. I was so sad since I couldn't score the cream, so when it was the promo product of the box, oh yea.... you best believe I'll buy it keke. It's for science okay ;). I know I got like 50+ boxes already. DON'T JUDGE ME!
I'm super surprised how fast it came. I got the tracking number yesterday night, plugged the tracking number into my Canada post app and it said it was already processed. When I see that, it means I would get it the next morning which made me super happy. Keep in mind, I didn't get express shipping because I'm a peasant and can't afford $24 for shipping, which is ridiculous anyways.
$29.00 + shipping
The box is currently out of stock, but they do have the random restock so you can always try clicking the link ;).
Sneak peek baby!
Make sure to use the coupons included in the bottom, and check out my other unboxings in the past. All links and information will be at the end of this post. So read more!
Ze information card that you can never lose or else you would not know how to use the products LOL. But then again, you can always use this blog as reference.
Looks like a pretty dang good box!
I never remember to read the description on the top of the card, so finally after 50+ unboxings, here it is LOL.
"We love wine and we love cheese, but wine and cheese beauty products in a wine and cheese box? That's just a match made in heaven! Wine and cheese have gone hand in hand for centuries, but this is probably the first time you've seen a wine and cheese beauty box. Leave it to Memebox to cook up the weirdest, yummiest beauty box that will amplify your beauty! Wine, famously known to be rich in antioxidants and essential minerals, speeds up the cell renewal process and stimulates the blood circulation for the look of rejuvenated, brighter skin! Cheese, considered an excellent source of Vitamin B for the skin, supports the look of supple, bouncy and glowing skin"
Oh yea, everything looks darn good.
The first product is LadyKin Mangchee lifting mask retailing for $43 an contains 50 mL. This is a full sized product measuring at 6 cm x 4.3 cm. Smell-o-scale= 5.5/10, fragrance of a faint mango and pear? I keep smelling something sweet and fruity, but definitely not cheese.
This product was one of the three spoilers they released, and it just confirmed the box to be super amazing. Not sure if I have much to lift since I'm only 21 years old, but you can never be too careful. But then again, you can get reverse effects if you use products you don't need. LOL I'm just thinking to myself at this point.
I'm not sure why there is a picture of a pear on the front since the cream says mango and cheese. But it kind of smells a bit of pear, or I'm just hallucinating. Either way, I like the cute simple packaging which reminds me of the Parisian lifestyle :D.
This mangchee lifting cream moisturizes, restores, replenishes and calms the skin. Mango, cheese and shea butter extracts boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result. It leaves the skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion.
How to use:
Apply the lifting mask all over the face. Use before bed. Do not rinse.
This cream also comes with a spatula which I appreciate :). I have a little chick glass jar to keep all the spatula in my bathroom so I can keep my spoons there ready to use.
This cream is one of those creams I would call it a gel. It is light weight, soaks right into the skin and doesn't leave any residue. I think I will try this out as a night mask even though they don't state it as a night mask. ;) We will see.
The second product is Ladykin mangchee replenishing hand cream retailing for $14 and contains 60 mL. This is a full sized product. The plastic tube measures 4 cm x 13 cm, smell-o-scale= 6/10, fragrance of something fruity and sweet. I can't pinpoint the scent, I'm not a super human sadly :(.
Again, I'm not a big big fan of getting hand creams because I need hand creams that really work for my super dry hands. The only hand cream I have been using and that works for me is the Glysomed which keeps my hands soft and moist for half a day before having to apply it again. I'll give this one a try but I doubt it will be moisturizing enough for my dry, crack hands.
This anti-wrinkle functional hand cream containing cream extracts, bacillius/ corchorus olitorius leaf fermented filtrate which Cleopatra used for her skin and Adenosine which is the anti-wrinkle functional ingredient absorbs deep into the skin and helps to strengthen the skin's innate power to protect itself, making the skin more vital and healthier. Mango extracts also makes skin cleaner and more transparent and camellia sinensis leaf water rich in vitamin and polypheonol keeps easily dehydrated hands well-nourished, elastic and smooth.
How to use:
Apply hand cream to clean hands. Reapply as necessary.
Not much to say about this hand cream but it is light weight, soaks into the skin and leaves my skin soft. I do really like the scent though :).
The third product is Blac Doux Pinot Noir UV Shield and tone up sensitive retailing for $36 and contains 40 mL. This is a full sized product, measuring at 2 cm x 15 cm. Smell-o-scale= 6/10 and it smells like a mixture of generic korean floral skincare scent and very raw, fresh green grapes. Good thing it doesn't smell like suncreen, BLAH!
Firstly the picture on the card shows that there is a box with this product, but it came with no box in our Memebox which does concern me slightly since the tub also isn't sealed up. I'm praying no one played with this before they sent it over to my house. Second, the packaging is so sleek, the font and design is super nice. It looks super expensive ;). I always forget to use sunscreen, which is a shame because it is something you should always remember to use. But I always forget, and the left side of my cheeks have these sun spots now :(. I need to start remembering or else my skin will go into the ruins! AHHHH...
No more blemish-instigating, oily sunscreen! Specially formulated from a strong antioxidant-premium red wine "Pinot Noir"- this mild, moisturizing sunblock not only provides moderate UVA and UVB protection but also replenishes and brightens up uneven skin ton and texture, for a glowing, supple complexion.
How to use:
Apply evenly over face as a makeup base to prep skin before applying foundation or BB cream.
The fourth product is Enprani Dear by Enprani bounce cheese cream retailing for $35 for 30 mL. This is a full sized product, but I believe they misprinted the amount of product on the card since the jar contains 75 mL. The glass jar measures 6 cm x 5.5 cm, smell-o-scale= 6/10 and it smells kind of like almonds + baby powder but it does not smell like cheese thank god LOL. That would stink after a while :S.
This is THE reason I got the box. Since everyone had been raving how good and moisturizing it is for the skin. I need all the moisturize I could get, and I'm hoping this will be as good, or even better then my Donkey milk and argan cream which I can not find on the internet to buy :(. I'm very confident in this product and I can't wait to try it :D.
Bouncify your skin with a FULL SIZED memebox cult classic: Dear by Enprani's dreams come tree bounce cheese cream! This innovative facial cream has a unique ooey-gooey, bouncy texture that comes from a high concentration of protein-rich whey. The fun melted mozzarella cheese texture will adhere to the skin perfectly, and hydrate and firm the skin for the plumpest, youngest cheeks ever!
How to use:
Prep the skin with toner and serum. Apply the cream to skin daily, morning and night.
See! It is 75 mL... Oh yea baby ;)
Not sure if you can see the stringy texture of the cream since I can't take a picture while trying to focus with one hand :S. Hope you can kind of see it.
A white background certainly doesn't help the cause does it HAHA.
The texture is slightly gooey, I'd say medium in lightest but it soaks into the skin nicely. I feel like this could also be another cream that is super moisturizing and could even replace my beloved donkey milk and argan moisturizer. We will have to see!
The fifth produt is Innisfree wine peeling jelly softener retailing for $12 and contains 180 mL. This is a full sized product measuring at 4.5 cm x 18 cm and it comes in a plastic bottle shaped like a wine bottle. Cute, effective and sleek packaging.
Not going to opening this product just yet, but the word peeling got me super excited! Not sure what this product does yet since I'm just reading the description now, but I'm really glad to see big brands like Innisfree in Memebox. I can't wait for my Innisfree box, which got delayed two weeks after the shipping date, and I'm getting restless and impatient so this product will have to feed me Innisfree needs ;).
*After I read the description*
PEELING GEL MOTHA FACAKSSSSSSSSSS~~~ LOL Yes I'm am super excited to get another peeling gel so I can see how they compare to my Secret Key Lemon D- tox peeling gel. So far that product has worked the best for me and leaves my skin baby smooth ;).
One of Innisfree's trademark products, this wine peeling jelly softener visibly rolls and lifts away dead skin cells when gently massaged onto the skin. Infused with Chateau Margaux, the queen of all wines, the gentle exfoliator effectively rolls away the dead dermal layer to uncover a smooth and fresh new skin! It also removes impurities and decongests sutbborn clogged pores for a youthful, radiant look!
How to use:
Use a cotton pad to gently wipe all over face with the peeling formula. Rinse off exfoliated dead skin cells with lukewarm water and finish with toner application.
The last product is Tony Moly I'm Real red wine mask sheet pore care retailing for $2 each and contains 21 mL in each mask. These are full sized products and they finally listened! They gave us two masks instead of just one. I'm happy about that :D.
I have seen these masks before and wanted to get some, but they were kind of expensive online for about $5 each (I don't remember where I was looking, but I just knew it wasn't really worth it), but I completely forgot about them and I guess that is a blessing in disguise. Now that Tony Moly is going to open their doors in my local asian mall in just a couple of weeks, I really can't wait! There aren't any red masks in the North American market, so this will be fun!
A micro-emulsion type essential mask enriched with red wine complex. It's fast-absorbing, effefctively softens uneven skin texture and maintains a healthy moisture/ oil balance. Plus, it's free of parabens, talc, benzophenon, tri-ethanolamide and tar coloring.
How to use:
Spread the mask sheet evenly over clean face. Rest for 15-20 minutes. Remove and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbency.

I am very impressed with this box, and it was exactly what I wanted it to be. We already knew we were getting the bounce cheese cream so that already secured that it would be an amazing box. But we also go an innisfree product (PEELING GEL TOO :D), another awesome cheese moisturizer, sun screen which I didn't think could happen with red wine, a very nice smelling hand cream and two sheet masks that I have been meaning to try. I'd give this box a 5.5/5 stars and would highly recommend this box if it ever gets restocked. Two thumbs up, ten toes up, five point five gold stars ;).
