Unboxing: Memebox superbox #71 my cute wishlist 4

 My cute wishlist 4, was one of the two restock boxes I bought recently.  There wasn't much choices, as the Vagabond box I wanted for the longest time still has not come back yet or I think it did, but I missed it :(.  So this one and volume up will have to do.  When this box first came out, it didn't really look that great but I think the Memebox drought got to me and suddenly this box didn't look so bad since you do get 8 products.

$23.00 + shipping
 As always, coupons will be included at the end, along with my thoughts on this box :). Enjoy!

 The information card on what is in the box, along with instructions all in English.

"We bring you, the latest edition of our Meme-fans' most favorite series.  My cute wishlist #4!  For endless days and nights, we scoured through the entire country searching for the cutest, most lovable beauty products in the world!  We went through a deluge of beauty products wonders and carefully selected only the best to bring you a box packed with whimsical and effective- beauty products that will once again make the my cute whislist series a memebox fan favorite!  Loaded with some seriously adorable and hard-to-find-beauty loot- straight from the hotbed of cute beauty products- this my cute wishlist #4 will make you ridiculously giddy with excitement!"

 The line up looking pretty good :).
 The first product is Tony moly apple red tox honey cream retailing for $12 and contains 80 mL.  This is a full sized product, measuring at 5.5 cm x 6 cm, smell-o-scale=7/10 and it smells exactly like a fresh apple.  It does not smell artificial at all and that is kind of scary LOL.

I bought the Tony Moly appletox peeling gel long ago, but didn't end up liking it since it did not do much for my skin.  The peeling was not strong enough, it literally didn't do anything!  I was super disappointing, and they were one of the first tony moly products I tried.  I don't have my hopes up for this product, but a lot of people do like this product so who knows!  Another thing, the packaging is cute and all but it is super bulky for no good reason.  Blah!

Product description:
Made from vitamin-rich red apple and deeply nourishing honey, Tony Moly's famous red appletox honey cream is a daily facial cream with a unique honey-like texture.  The bouncy, hydrating gel cream stretches when patted on, giving the skin a massage effect as well as a silky finish.

How to use:
After toner application, take a small amount, spread it evenly over your face, and gently pat it in for full absorbency.

You would think that they would give you a lot of cream inside this huge apple but in reality, there is only 80 mL.  I'm not going to swatch this since I don't want it to spoil before I can even finish the one I'm using right now, but it is light in texture and smells delicious at least hehe.
 The second product is Etude house sweet recipe candy stick retailing for $5 and contains 2 g.  This is a full sized product and was randomly selected from 01 seedless strawberry candy, 02 oh! orange candy or 03 sour lemon candy.  I got the color 01 seedless strawberry candy, smell-o-scale= 7/10 and it does smell like real strawberries :D.

I have gotten this product before, in the first cute wishlist but I sold it away since I didn't think I'd be using it.  I am glad I got it again, maybe this time I will be using it since it smells delicious :D.  it would be even better if I used it during the holidays to be more festive.  I'm not saying this because I'm a pink bird, but out of the Korean cosmetic brands I have tried so far, Etude house still is one of my most favorite brands taking into consideration the price and quality. Thumbs up!

Product description:
Enriched with bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, orange and lemon extracts, the Sweet recipe candy stick is a gloss type lip tint that moisturizes and plumps up your dry, chapped lips for a long-lasting radiance.

How to use:
Softly dab the candy stick on your lips for a naturally gradated look.
 The candy cane top comes off and the product twists up for easy application :D.
 The third product is from Yadah Vita-whitening aqua gel and Puregreen moisturizing cream retailing for $24.  I don't think this is a full sized product since it's so small and only has 5 mL, but it says it is a full sized product on the information card :S.

I got this box because of these little cute containers honestly LOL.  They are so darn cute!! I thought I could reuse them and put a lip product in it or something after I finish the cream :).  I have never heard of this brand before, but the illustrations already got me wanting to use it.

Product description:
The most perfect pair of facial creams to pop into your pouch for travelling.  The vita-whitening aqua gel is made from vitamin rich rosehip extracts for softening and firming, niacinamide for brightening, and cactus extracts for moisture boost.  The puregreen moisturizing cream, on the other hand, is enriched with royal jelly extracts, cactus extracts, bean oil complex, sea buckhorn berries, and birch tree sap for delivering rich moisture surge deep down into skin.

How to use:
Apply evenly over clean face.  Pat it in for full absorbency.
The jar with the doggie looking thing with the pure green moisturizing cream has the cream looking product that smells like perfumes, while the jar with the little girl with vite whitening aqua gel contains the clear gel cream that smells like the Laneige sleeping pack.  There's not much product in it, but that's not something that concerns me hehe.  I just want the jar.
The fourth product is ddung liquid eye liner retailing for $12 and contains 5 mL.  This is a full sized product, measuring at 1.3 cm x 11.2 cm, smell-o-scale= 6/10 and it has a weird scent of ink, not like eyeliner at all.

Not sure if I will be using this product since it smells slightly toxic.  It smells like pen ink :S, not sure if that is safe to put on my eyes.  The bottle is cute though haha, I'll give them that :D.

Product description:
A liquid eyeliner with a formula that offers a remarkably defined, feminine eye with a long-lasting waterproof, and non-smudging wear.

How to use:
Dip adequate amount on the brush tip and draw a line across the upper lid on the lash line and line the lower lids.
This eyeliner has a brush tip, rather then a sponge tip which I appreciate a lot more then stupid sponge tips since they wear out and overtime, you can't get a nice point.  Surprisingly, the lid is actually made of metal while the bottle is plastic.  A nice touch I must say. 
The product itself isn't the blackest black, but it will work.  You can get a nice point with this brush, I might actually try and work with it. but I do believe I'm going to have to go over it twice to get the dark black I like.
The fifth product is Holika Holika pig nose clear black head steam starter retailing for $6 and contains 30 mL.  This is a full sized product, measuring at 1.5 cm x 12.5 cm.

I'm super excited about this product, not because I know it is good, but it is the first holika holika skincare product I own :).  I have seen this line before, but never bought it since I don't want to waste my money on something I'm unsure of.  Not sure how  I will like this product since I have tried other products that is suppose to heat up on my nose and open up my pores to prep for cleaning, but they don't really work for me :(. Hopefully this product is different.

Product description:
This steam starter opens up clogged pores when massaged onto face and gently melt away all blackheads and skin impurities from inside.  The aloe vera gel complex works as soothing and moisturizing agent at the same time to protect the skin from dehydration and stimulation.

How to use:
Take a small amount and gently massage over areas with excessive blackheads for about 3 minutes.  Rinse off with lukewarm water.
The sixth product is Pure smile choosy lip pack milk retailing for $1 and contains 3 mL.  This is a full sized product.

I have gotten this product about three times already in the past from memebox.  I tried it once, and I didn't really like it since it didn't do much for my lips and made it hard for me to breath LOL.  I have severe allergies in my nose that makes the inside of my nose swell up pretty badly, so I have to breath through my mouth.  I only found this out recently when I brought it up to my doctor, and I went to a specialist for him to shove a tube down my nose :(.  That was uncomfortable.  So covering my mouth with this mask isn't that comfortable for me and even after the mask, I didn't find much difference.

Product description:
Pamper your chapped lips with pure smile's choosy lip pack abundant in milk protein extracts for strengthening the moisture level and reviving the juicy glow of your lips.  This easy-to-apply lip patch will help maintain healthy, silky smooth lips!

How to use:
Take out the lip patch and place it on your lips.  Rest for 15-30 minutes, remove it, and pat in the remaining essence.
The seventh product is Pure smile snail hand cream retailing for $5 and contains 60 g.  This is a full sized product, measuring at 3 cm x 13 cm.

I have also gotten this product before, in the milk edition box and I absolutely love the smell.  It smells like sweet milk, and it is moisturizing as well.  Definitely not disappointed to get this again :).  Nothing much to say but I like it, happy to get it again and welcome to the family.

Product description:
Snail slime extracts and milk protein extracts in the hand cream help soothe, moisturize, and revitalize the dry, stressed-out skin on your hands.  It'll revive the skin elasticity and the natural glow of your hands as well.

How to use:
Apply the hand cream as often as needed.
The last product is Tony Moly egg pore nose pack retailing for $4 and contains 7 strips each.

I'm not a big fan of nose strips as it rips the skin off my face and nose and it HURTS! My face and nose is always burning after a nose strip and I will not stand for that!  I'm not going to put myself through that misery because I want to clean my blackheads.  And the funny thing is, I rip it out in hopes of a cleaner nose and nope!  Nothing is on the strip.  Like WHAT THE DUCK MAN.  I have better luck manually squeezing it out with one of those metal sticks, so no thank you to nose strip :S.

Product description:
This blackhead removing egg pore nose pack is made from charcoal and egg complex which effectively treats enlarged pores and excessive blackheads and whiteheads, smoothing out the uneven skin texture to resemble the rounded smooth surface of an egg,

How to use:
Remove the transparent film and place the smooth side of the pack over wet nose.  When the pack is completely dried out after 10-15 minutes, remove it from the edges.  Recommended to be used 1-2 times a week and not consecutively.

As a whole, this box isn't the best cute wishlist out there compared to the first one, but it isn't bad comparing the other two.  I'm slightly excited for the tony moly apple moisturizer, etude house candy stick lip thing and holika holika pig nose steam starter, but other then that its an average box.  I only got it since I wanted to use up some points I had, and this box had a lot of products to try out :). I already knew what was in the box since it is a restock, and there are 8 products to try so no dissapointment here.  I'd give this box a 3.75/ 5 stars, and would recommend it if you have been eyeing some star product such as the Tony moly red apple cream, etude house sweet recipe candy stick, holika holika pig nose head steam starter, or even the pure smile snail hand cream since it smells delicious!

  1. Everything in the box is so cute/adorable!!!! :) I love the packaging of the apple lotion. :3 I had heard of memebox slightly but not to the full extent, so I'm going to check them out now.

    Nice post!

    P.s. they opened a Tony Molly at Aberdeen center c:

    1. I actually went to the Tony Moly store in Aberdeen when they first opened to check out the prices. It is way too overpriced. I'd rather buy things on ebay and korean cosmetics stores online. But it is nice to have korean cosmetic stores where you can physically go in and test products out. I wish etude house would come to Vancouver :(.
