Unboxing: Memebox Cleanse and Tone Special

Unboxing: Memebox Cleanse and Tone Special
I'll be honest, I had no expectations for the Cleanse and Tone Memebox box. I purchased it in a bundle with the Oh! My Lips box, because I didn't want to wait for snail mail for my Oh! My Lips box. Buying it in a bundle allows me to get express shipping for only $6.99. Together the 2 Memeboxes costed $46 plus $6.99 express shipping. Memebox is a Korean beauty box company that sells none subscription beauty boxes. More information here. When I got my Cleanse and Tone box I was surprised. Let's dig in to see why.

A;T Fox Tea Toc Water Clear Tablet
A;T Fox Tea Toc Water Clear Tablet
4g, $2

A tea bag for the cleansing routine. This tea bag contains a tablet that will melt in warm water. It creates a pH level of 4.9 to give the gentlest deep cleansing experience. This green tea infused tablet will detox the skin while soothing it as well. To use, remove makeup and impurities first. Drop the tea bag and tablet into a bowl of water and wait until it's fully dissolved. Gently pat your skin with the water and do not rinse afterwards.

I feel like I'm being ripped off when I see a one time use product like this in a box. How am I suppose to find out if I want to purchase this product from using it only once? It would have been nice if they were able to include 3 or 4 Tea Tablets in the box, especially since they are only $2 each. I'm also not a big fan of cleansing water in a bowl. Possible hygiene issues keeps me away from it. So I'll have to figure out another way to use this product. 
Mizon Cotton Shower Sheet Essence
Mizon Cotton Shower Sheet Essence
55ml, $7

Cotton shower essence sheets contains small pack like sheets that are soaked in rich nutrients. Its formula includes spa water, shea butter, and witch hazel. The sheets can be used as a first step toning sheet or be placed over dry patches to moisturize it. 

There were 2 possible options for the product, For Dry Skin or For Oily Skin. Unfortunately for me, I got the For Dry Skin when I have oily skin. So I don't think I will be using this one. 
Charmzone Ginkgo Natural Cleansing Tissue
Charmzone Ginkgo Natural Cleansing Tissue 
10 sheets, sample size

Disposable cleansing tissues formulated with nutrients from ginkgo trees, one of nature's oldest plants. This whip is gentle for all skin types and it effectively wipes away makeup and impurities. 

I'm actually really excited to try this product. I've used Ginkgo seeds before. Aka the White Nut, they are seeds from the Ginkgo tree. Little history here, Ginkgo trees are native to China and it was widely used as a source of medicine and food in the past. These seeds are popular in Asian countries in dishes like Congee or Chawanmushi. They were once royal tributes to empresses. The seeds are often used in herbal medicine and are rich in antioxidants. I came across these seeds because a friend of mine used them to treat her acne and it really worked for her, so she recommended them for me to try. It did work really well to combat my acne, however, they were such a pain to use because the nut has 2 layers of shells, one hard and one soft, both of which you have to crack/peel before getting to the seed. You then need to break the seed in half and rub it on your acne. Sometimes you'd need multiple seeds if you have multiple acne. It became a hassle after a while so I switched back to my pink powder lol. 
Neogen Code9 Glucose Skin
Neogen Code9 Glucose Skin
250ml, $26

This lightweight toner formulated with naturally fermented glucose complex. It's hydrating and rejuvenating and acts as the first step in a skincare routine. This toner will sooth, replenish and firm up dry and aging skin for a more youthful look.

This is one huge bottle of toner. I love the spray bottle and might turn this toner into a bottle of mist for the future. Neogen is a great brand and has got a lot of quality products, so I'm excited for this product. 
Enesti Yuzu Foaming Cleanser
Enesti Yuzu Foaming Cleanser
120ml, $14

This gentle foam cleanser is formulated with mineral rich hot spring water and packed full of citron  extracts. It also contains citron seed oil. The cleanser works to thoroughly cleanse deep into pores while delivering moisture into the skin. Leaving the skin with a natural glow.

With the abundance amount of cleansers in my stash right now, I don't think I have the chance to use it. I'm new to the Enesti brand, but this cleanser sounds like a great product to cleanse pores and revealing the skin's natural glow.
Banila Co. Clean It Zero
Original 7g, Resveratrol 7g, Sample size $1.5 ea

A sorbet like balm that melts into oil once applied onto the face. It's a cleansing oil that will dissolve makeup and impurities on the skin. It works as the first step of the double cleanse to thoroughly cleanse the face without dehydrating it. The formula is not greasy and it contains papaya extracts, acerola, and herbal extracts.

I received the full size version of the Banila Co. Clean It Zero Original in my Seoulcialite box and have been using it daily since. I love this product, it really works well and I have an entire review on it here. Since these are sample sizes, I wish Memebox had provided a variety of them, since there are a lot of different kinds of Clean It Zero balm.

Final Thoughts:

At the beginning of the post I said that I was surprised by this box, and I truly was. The monetary value isn't really great but the quality isn't so bad. It's not the worst Memebox ever, it's actually pretty solid. I'll be able to use most of the products in this box which is nice and I'm sure I'll be able to find a good home for the products I won't be using as well. 

Until next time and dream big!

  1. I agree this is a solid box and has lots of useful things. I'm glad they didn't take the shortcut and just throw in 3 different foam cleansers or something. Very nice!
