Unboxing: Memebox Superbox While You Were Sleeping #76

The Memebox World has been quiet in terms of box releases in the past week and many have been wondering what's going on. Truthfully, your guess is probably as good as mine, and somehow I feel like I'm having minor Meme-withdraws. It's slowly becoming like an addiction, I know. Thankfully, some Memeboxes I ordered in the past arrived recently. So not having any new releases doesn't feel so bad.
Memebox Superbox While Your Were Sleeping #76

Today, I am bringing you a Memebox unboxing on their Superbox: While You Were Sleeping. This box consists of night care products that focuses on recovery from head to toe. The products will help regenerate, repair, and replenish while you sleep. I bought this box with the City Girl box for $58.99. So the box itself cost about $29. It came with 8 products totaling over $140. Let's dig in, shall we?

Yup, that's my penguin phone case you see lol.
Dr. MJ Jasmine Sleeping Water Mask
75ml, $24

A sleeping mask or pack is often used as the last step in the night time skincare routine. It helps to moisturize the skin overnight and acts as a protective layer for the night time skincare products. This sleeping mask is no different. It will not only help moisturize the skin overnight but also help brighten, detox, and deliver rich nutrients to the skin. It also has an aromatic scent.

Since my last sleeping mask fiasco, I am more cautious with checking the ingredients on my products. Luckily, this sleeping mask came with ingredients in English, so I didn't have to go find it myself. After putting the ingredient list into CosDNA, the results were okay. There are 3 level 1 acne triggers and 1 level 1 irritant. This means the likeliness of getting acne or irritated from this product is very low, however, still possible. This sleeping mask does have a couple of mild potentially hazardous ingredients as well. I can't quite explain the scent. It's floral but not jasmine which was kind of disappointing. It's also a bit strong too and not calming to me. The scent from my favorite Laneige water sleeping pack is more soothing and light than this one. If I have to pick I would choose Laneige over Dr. MJ's.
Pure Smile Potion Pack Hand

Pure Smile Potion Pack Hand
1 package, Pearl, $5

A mask for your hands that's in the shape of a glove. It contains essences enriched with nutrients such as collagen, aloe vera, and pearl powder. It also have notable ingredients like snail mucus. This hand pack will help moisturize aging hands and re-hydrate it.

I've never used hand masks before so I'm excited to try this. The one I got is Pearl, although there's also hibiscus or royal jelly hand pack as well. It's a bit expensive than I thought it would be, so unless it's magical for my hands, I don't think I will repurchase this specific one in the future.
Glam Up Highly Enriched Ampoule

Glam Up Highly Enriched Ampoule
13ml, $2

An ampoule for nurturing hair. It will condition the hair, help with growth, and allow it to become voluptuous. It contains doses of cramide protein, hyalurinic acid, and natural PCA moisturizers essential for healthy hair. It can be apply over wet or blow dried hair. It's also recommended to use a shower cap over it for best results.

I'm picky about hair products. Maybe not as picky as I am for my skincare products, but definitely close. 13ml is not much and since I have really long hair, almost to my butt, I think I can only use this product once or max twice. So I will pass this product to my mom who might find more uses out of it than I will.
RoseMine Azulene Calming Gel

RoseMine Azulene Calming Gel
75ml, $29

A blue colored calming gel used to soothe, cool, and moisturize red and irritated skin. Good for blemishes, oily troubled skin, and dry patches. It can also be used as an after sun product. The formula contains chamomile extracts, which is also the reason for its blue color. Since chamomile contains azulene which is an organic compound that's blue.

I want to try this product since my skin does get red and I have minor blemishes from time to time. However, since I wasn't able to find the full ingredients list, I will be putting this product aside for now. If anyone have the full ingredients list for this product please let me know!
A.H.C Whitening Special Gen Skin Care Kit

A.H.C Whitening Special Gen Skin Care Kit
10ml + 30ml + 10ml, $18

A 3-step brightening solutions kit to moisturize and brighten skin complexion. It contains a clarifying toner, a soothing serum and a moisturizing cream. With ingredients like green tea, lavender, sage, and rose oil to help repair the look of fine lines, dull skin, and skin discolorations.

The word whitening might sound scary to some people, but generally whitening means brightening. Which than means to make a dull complexion look glowy and healthy. This is a trial set. While looking for the full ingredients list, I came across the actual full size kit. And let me tell you, it's much bigger and costs a whopping $200+. So I can see why we didn't get the full size. Still, I'm happy with this trial kit.
Grinif Shea Butter Multi Balm

Grinif Shea Butter Multi Balm
30ml, $13

This nourishing balm is enriched with shea butter, vitamins A and E, olive oil, and mango butter. It's great for dry patches on face and body, as it helps to replenish and nourish the skin. It can also be used on the ends of damaged hair. To use, apply the balm to the desired area and gently massage it for full absorbency. As for the hair, use a steam towel on it after application for best results.

I really like this balm. The scent is really nice, light and floral. Although there's no floral ingredients added, there was perfume added which can contribute to the scent. I've used it on the ends of my hair and it feels really soft after. I've tried it on my knees and elbows as well and I really like it.
Grinif Queen of Rose Water Eye Cream

Grinif Queen of Rose Water Eye Cream
30ml, $50

This is a moisturizing rose water eye cream, perfect for the winter time. It's formulated with rose water, collagen, macadamia seed oil, and witch hazel extracts. It also contains a variety of amino acids for deep nutrition and intense wrinkle care. It will leave the skin feel softer and firmer.

I really wanted to love this product because I have a soft spot for rose beauty products. However, after looking at the ingredients and taking a whiff, I was quite disappointed. It smelled like fake roses, like the chemically made kind. The product also includes alcohol, which is something I'm trying to avoid in my products for the cooler months because alcohol tends to be drying on the skin. After typing out all the ingredients onto CosDNA, it took a long time lol, the results were disappointing. There are a couple of level 2 acne triggers and a couple of level 2 and level 1 irritants. To add to the disappointment, there's also a few potentially mild hazardous ingredients. While this product might not trigger acne on everyone, it will be more likely to trigger acne on those with acne prone skin. Which I have, so I will be putting this aside for now.
Mizon Olive Cocoa Butter Foot Cream

Mizon Olive Cocoa Butter Foot Cream
80ml, $9

This foot butter is used to relieve, soften, and nourish dry and/or cracked heels. It contains nutrients from both olive oil and cacao butter. To apply, simply massage it onto clean feet.

To be honest, I was not expecting a foot cream in this box. Especially since there's a foot care box that came out when this box did. When I first saw this product in the box, I wasn't happy for it. However, after researching online about this product, it's actually changed my mind on it. I'm kind of lucky in that I don't get dry or cracked feet, ever. *knocks on wood* But I have been sort of looking for foot creams so I can do foot massages. Since standing in heels everyday can be quite tiring sometimes. The scent of this cream is light and it didn't smell like cocoa but I can't pinpoint exactly what it is either. However, it's rather pleasant. The packaging looks like my acrylic paint tubes lol.

Final Thoughts:

There are 8 products in the While You Were Sleeping Memebox which is quite a lot. Especially since they are worth over $140. The most expensive product was the eye cream, however, due to it's many irritants and potential acne triggers, I have set it aside for now. Along with the calming gel, both products will be added to my 'unsure' box. I am most excited for the hand mask, since I've never used anything like it before. I'm also excited for the A.H.C whitening trial set. Overall, it's an okay box. 2 of the most expensive products in this box I am unsure about and the others seem okay but the total price of those 6 products is just about $70, which is the price for the 2 'unsure' products. Not my best box but definitely not the worst.

Until next time and dream big!
