Unboxing: Memebox special #57 For dry and sensitive skin

 Surprise surprise.  What is this?  Another unboxing? LOL  Yes it is time for another unboxing, this time it is for dry and sensitive skin box.  When this box came out, it was screaming my name.  I just had to get it and was actually super excited for it since I love my some skincare products.  I finally got the box after tension with my mail man. 

 My usual mail lady is across the country doing something super cool, so I have this a**hole sub that doesn't do his job.  Where I live right now, it is snowing and there is ice. When I checked my phone app, it again said attempted delivery but he never rang the doorbell, for the fifth time.  So I went to my mail box to get my slip (which is SUPPOSE to be hanging on my front door) and I was like sigh I'll just get my mom to get it since the post office is next to where she works.  Then suddenly, I had a light bulb above my head that went ding!  Maybe he is still working on the mail box down the street, so I went to the corner of my street to peek and sure enough he was there.  I ran as fast as I could, while trying not to slip on the ice and I caught up to him.  I let him finish sorting the letters into the mail box and then asked him personally "Can I please get my parcel."  I don't think he expected me to come and hunt him down and I could tell he was slightly embarrassed.  I don't think he understands that we can track our parcels down, so he didn't think he would get caught being lazy.  

So today when I knew another parcel was going to come, I purposely woke up early to wait at the window to see when the truck was going to come. I waited for a good hour and a half and it never came so I was like, hmm guess he isn't delivering it today since the tracking says it is just processed and not on its way.  I go to my mail box, and there was a key to open the magical compartment at the mail box to get parcels, and my box was there (this one I'm talking about is the Lucky box 11).  I was super happy he at least just left it there :).  Thanks mail man, I'm glad your days are numbered since you don't want to do your job.  My usual mail lady is coming back in 5 days. YEY!

Anyways, enough of my long story.  Let's get to the unboxing shall we?
$29.00 + shipping

New coupon codes are out!  Feel free to use them :).  They are included at the bottom of the blog post.

 When I saw the lip treatment, I got so excited it isn't even funny.  You guys know I love me the Pure smile snail mucus lip treatment since it works super well, but this one isn't the same brand.  They look the same, but it isn't the same brand.  Hopefully it works well as well.
 Not the most exciting box, but I think I would think differently when I do use the products.  I now got two of the Yeon jejul serum T__T.  Guess they are trying to get rid of the cutiepiemarzia box.  I had to cancel my bundle of the next three lucky box since I didn't really want to risk getting too many duplicates. I got the bundle for a really good deal, but had to let it go. :(  I know it is for the better.
 The first product is Zamian trouble skin handmade soap Ac'xxii retailing for $18 and contains 100 g.  This is a full sized product and the soap measures 6.5 cm x 2.5 cm.  Smell-o-scale= 8/10 and it smells heavily of herbal medicine.

It's another super strong smells bar of soap!  AHHHHH RUN.  This doesn't smell as weird as the other fermented devil soap from OMG 3, but I'm not sure I will use this.  Maybe my boyfriend can use it since it for trouble skin.  Good good :D.  Hopefully he can stand the smell better then me LOL.  Oh dear~

Product description:
A handmade facial bar soap for troubled, sensitive skin types.  The blend of tea tree oil, lavender oil, and manuka honey helps treat blemishes and bring back the skin's natural glow from within.  The opaque part of the soap targets redness and irritates spots on the skin while the middle translucent part of the soap deeply moisture and soothes the easily dehydrated and sensitive skin.

How to use:
Lather the soap well in your hands and gently massage it onto face.  It can also be used on body.
 I'm not sure if the soap is expired or what, but the color of the soap looks different then the picture.  It is a lot lighter in color. :S  Hmm....  The packaging is really nice and eco friendly which I really like :).

 The second product is The yeon jeju hallabong energy mild all-in-one serum retailing for $20 and contains 100 mL.  This is a full sized product measuring at 3.5 cm x 17 cm.  Smell-o-scale= 6/10 and it smells like citrus.  It smells goooood ;).

I'm actually glad I got this product since it was the one thing I actually wanted from the cutiepiemarzia box but I didn't want to get the whole box just for this one product.  I'm almost done my Laneige essence, so I might try this next.  I love the idea that this serum has products from Jeju, and I actually hope I get the chance to see Jeju in person. The island looks beautiful and it is in Korea hehe.  Win win situation.

Product description:
The Yeon's jeju Hallabong series boosts its organic formula made from the "Hallabong" which is a special type of orange cultivated only in the jeju island and best loved for bursting with vitamin C and super sweet and tasty juiciness.  Infused with other Jeju-born organic ingredients such as kiwi, broccoli, and aloe vera, this Energy mild all in one serum works to replenish, soften, and protect the skin.

How to use:
Apply the serum evenly over your face and pat it in for full absorbency.  It can be used both in the morning and at night.

 Like any serums, this one is light and absorbs into the skin. I really like the scent!  It wakes me up.  I think i might just use this in the morning!
 The third product is Pedison nutritive infusion cream retailing for $29 and contains 120 mL.  This is a full sized product and it measures 3.7 cm x 19 cm.

At first I thought it was a face cream. I was like HOLY COW this is going to take me like a year and a half to try and finish it.  But when I read the description and it said body lotion, I'm like good good :D. I've been getting weird problems on my body and my fingers recently.  I got eczema all over my hand, especially my pinky finger :S. I think I need to visit my doctor again haha.  I've seen him like seven times last month, might as well be first name basis HAHA.

Product description:
A body cream carefully formulated for sensitive and dry skin containing 0% preservatives, natural lipids, non-comedogenic ingredients, and 2 action hydration layer.  This advance combination of moisturizing agents penetrate deep into skin to deliver instant moisture resurge and restore comfort and suppleness.  Its gently, lightweight texture also leaves your skin feeling silky soft and well nourished.

How to use:
Massage over legs, arms, back, and whenever needed to be moisturized.
 The fourth product is Anacis triactive dermatis intensive cream retailing for $12 and contains 20 mL  This is a full sized product 2 cm x 10.5.

Product description:
This essential soothing cream suits the most irritated and reactive complexions.  Gentle enough for a pregnant women, and even babies, this cream helps to relive dryness and maintains the skin's natural moisture balance.  Infused with 27 natural extracts- green tea, mandarin, walnut, squalene and much more- this ultra gentle soothing cream contains effective comforting properties to especially benefit traumatized, allergy prone, thin, aging, sun sensitive, tight, and dehydrated skin types.  A propriety blend of STRUCTURINE pepties in the formula works to strengthen the skin's cell walls, and it forms a protective veil over the skin into prevent damage from external stressors.

How to use:
Apple directly to face at the last stage of skincare routine.
 The fifth product is Migabee botanical moisture moisture mist retailing for $22 and contains 150 mL.  This is a full sized product and measures 4.5 cm x 15 cm.

This is another mist that is quite interesting.  Quite frankly I still haven't broken out of my boring three step skincare of cleanser, toner and moisturizing. I do use mists when I do my make up as a freshener to ensure that my face doesn't look too powdery.  I think I will try something different since I have so many new products to play with now.

Product description:
This is a botanical body mist formulated from natural herbal ingredients such as aloe vera, verbena, red ginseng, and camellia oil.  Its gentle formula is fast absorbing and works to rejuvenate and de-stress dry, tired skin.

How to use:
Spray the mist all over body morning and night after shower.
The last product is Pureplus+ lip treatment retailing for $9 and contains 10 g.  This is a full sized product and was randomly chosen from strawberry or honey bee.  I got the strawberry version.

This was the one product that got me super excited since the pure smile lip treatment is my absolute favorite since it moisturizes my lips overnight and I don't have to use any lip balm during the day.  But I have found that it doesn't work that well anymore sadly, good thing I bought the Bite beauty agave lip treatment again to see if it will be better.  I will also try this one in the meantime and compare the two :D.

Product description:
High concentrates of collagen delivers rich nourishment and a lasting suppleness to dry, chapped lips.  It also contains various nutrients such as snail mucus extracts, shea butter, grape seed oil, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E for protecting lips from further dehydration and damage.

How to use:
Apply directly over lips as often as needed.

*Prices in purple are prices I found through official site  or popular online stores*
Not sure if you guys have noticed, but I have always included the link of the official website link for you guys to check it out.

1) Zamian trouble skin handmade soap $18 ??
5) Migabee Botanical moisture mist $22 ($16.16 USD/ 18,000 Won)
6) Pureplus+ lip treatment $9 ??
Total: $110 on info card
Total: $99.24 Korea retail price

Firstly, i apologize for not being about to find the korean retail prices but it doesn't state on the official websites oddly enough. Anyways, overall this isn't my favorite boxes out of all the ones I have bought in the past, but it isn't the worst.  I was expecting a bit more interesting products since the skincare and step by step skincare box was really good, but I think this box is a miss for me personally.  The only products I'm excited to use is the Pedison nutritive infusion cream since I'm getting a bit of skin problems on my body right now.  I'm also excited for the Migabee botanical moisture mist and the lip treatment but other then that, I'm not taking fancy of the other products.  I'd give this box a 3/5 stars.
