Unboxing: superbox #84 skinfood

Here is the second unboxing for the day, and this box got me super excited.  I didn't even think twice on buying this box, it just went into the checkout and was paid for LOL.  I have heard about skinfood's black sugar mask scrub, but I never bought it.  I don't know why, but I was super excited to see the spoilers for this box and the product was in there!  That just made the whole box worth it :).  The only skinfood product I have ever tried was their aloe vera BB cream, but that didn't really work out too well for me, so my impression of skinfood was so so. The reason why I love memebox is that you pay a fraction of the price, but you get way more then the value you paid for.  The black sugar scrub itself is about $8-10, so why not spend $29+ shipping (you can use points and shipping to make it cheaper), and get four more products for the price of two!  This box was a win win for me since I wanted to try more of the brand out.  So exciteeeeddd~~~

The skinfood box seems to be missing on the website, but I will link it again when i find it.  Hopefully its not because I'm blind.

$29.00 + shipping
 Sneak peek of the box ;).  Coupons will be at the end of the post!

 Skinfood information card.  This box was released with thefaceshop box.  I was tempted to buy the bundle and get the box quicker, but I had a gut feeling that the face shop box wouldn't be as worth it as the skinfood box.

 I was slightly disappointed that we got only 5 products when we usually get six, but the black sugar mask scrub made it all better ;D.
 All the product in the box.  I had a hard time taking the picture because there was some brown powder going on my white background.  Then i found out my brow powder was broken :'(.  Aww man, I have to clean my back drop now, sigh.
 The first product is skinfood facial water vita-C cream retailing for $13 and contains 75 g.  This is a full sized product and measures 6 cm x 5.5 cm.

So happy we got a moisturizer, that is one thing I will never get tired of getting ;) even though I have tons and tons of them kekekekeke. Will this smell like raspberry?  Have you guys tried this one?  Is it worth testing on my skin? Let me know in the comments!

Product description:
Quench thirst by delivering a richly nutritious blend of Vitamin C complex and Alaska glacier water deep into the skin. The vitamin C complex contains extracts from raspberry, acai berry, cranberry and strawberry and works to replenish healthy energy to dehydrated, dull complexion.

How to use:
Apply directly to clean face and let it absorb.  It's recommended to refrigerate for better moisturizing and soothing results.  It can also be used as a hydration pack by applying thicker amounts of the cream.
 The second product is skinfood black sugar mask wash off retailing for $9 and contains 100 g.  This is a full sized product and measures 5.5 cm x  7 cm.

Ohhhhh I will go and try this after I'm done with this post :D.  I heard it is good for oily skin, which I don't have, but I hope it works for me or else I'd be pretty heartbroken.  This product is the most famous product from skinfood, I will have high expectations for this product!

Product description:
An effective facial exfoliator rich in various minerals and vitamins.  Use occasionally to cleanse away excessive dead skin cells, oils, and skin impurities piling up in the pores to make skin sensitive and troublesome.  It'll bring back healthy radiance and suppleness to the skin with just a single use.

How to use:
Spread the formula evenly over your wet face after cleaning and gently massage into the skin.  Rinse off after 10-15 minutes.
 The third product is Skinfood egg white pore meringue foam retailing for $13 and contains 200 mL.  This is a full sized product and measures 4.5 cm x 19.5 cm.

Oh crap.  The descriptions says this product is for oily skin O_O.  This might dry my skin out :(.  I might have to sell this away sigh.  Heartbroken...

Product description:
Abundent, meringue-like fine bubbles penetrate deep into skin without irritating or dehydrating the skin texture.  Highly recommended for weak and sensitive oily skin types.

How to use:
Lather well and gently massage onto the face.  Rinse off with lukewarm water.
 The third product is Skinfood tomato whitening toner retailing for $17 and contains 180 mL.  This is a full sized product and measures 4.75 cm x 13.5 cm.

I haven't seen this product before! Super cool.  I don't have many toners, just about three counting this one ;).  I did get the cleanse and tone box hehe so I can expand my toner collection and see which one I like.  I have noticed that Koreans love their tomato products in skincare for the whitening property that it naturally contains.  Pretty cool eh?  You'd never find tomato products in Sephora keke ;).  In my option, sephora is only good for make up.

Product description:
A premium tomato whitening toner made from sun-ripe tomato extracts and vitamin C complex to make the skin brighter, cleaner and suppler.

How to use:
Apply with a cotton pad or directly with your hands onto clean face and pat it in for full absorbency.
 The last product is Skinfood choco eyebrow powder cake retailing for $5 and it contains  4g.  This was randomly selected from 01 grey khaki black or 02 grey brown.  I got 01 grey khaki black.  Sadly mine is shattered :'(. 

I'm quite happy I got a brow product since I only have one brow product from Urban decay I got ages ago and that is it for my brow department.  I always thought to myself I don't need to fill my brows since they are naturally dark and thick as is, but there is a slight difference when I do fill them in.  They look nicer in photos, but I feel like I look like I have caterpiller eyebrows in real life haha.  My mother always tells me that thick brows on a girl isn't very good, I don't know why but she says I look too manly.  Well cara Delevingne has thick eye, I don't see what the problem is >_>.  She won't get off my case!

Product description:
Formulated with cacao extracts, this Choco eyebrow powder cake carries two naturally blending grey, khaki or brown shades for shaping and defining fine arches with an easy sweep.

How to use:
Use the included brow brush to fill in your arches.
Pretty sad my product broke, but I know a way to fix it :).  The color I believe will work for my brows, so I'm excited to see how this compares to the Urban Decay one.

Although the total box value is lower then usual, I did have fun knowing I get to try out some skinfood products that I would not have bought for myself because I wouldn't know what is good.  I'm super happy that they included the famour black sugar scrub and I have heard plenty of good things from it, so it is a promising product.  For my upcoming Innisfree box, can you guys please include the Volcanic pore mask ;).  That would seal the deal to make that box a winner winner chicken dinner ;).  I know you guys read this memespies!  I'd give this box a 4/5 stars.

  1. Broken chocolate-smelling brow powder?! NOOOOOOOOOOOO *weeps* I got this box as well and used this a few times (I got the "grey brown" one) and have been really impressed with the results. I never saw the point in having brow powder but after using it a few times, I've noticed my brows look more polished when I use it

    1. I have to agree! It really does tie in the look :), making everything look complete. I was sad as well when I found out my powder broke :'(.
