Graveyard: March and April empties 2015

19. May 2015

Here are my product empties for March and April and a quick impression on each product. I’m a bit late for the post, but hopefully you like it anyways :) As usual, I didn’t include any sample sachets or sheet masks masks, because it is too messy to keep these.

Graveyard: March and April empties 2015

1. Rosemine Floral Remedy Foaming Cleanser. Repurchase? Maybe someday. I have to many cleansers right now.

You can read my review on this foaming cleanser >>here<<. I love the packaging and it had a nice scent. The foam was thick and soft and the cleanser contained rose petals.

2. Happy Bath Rose Essence. Repurchase? I would love to!

This bath and shower cream had the most lingering and nicest rose scent! If you are a lover you will love this…but I remember it was marked quite expensive, sadly.

3. Shib Jang Ceng Chun Ji Heang Hand Cream. Repurchase? Yes, please.

This moisturizing and nourishing hand cream has a long name, but nevertheless it does a great job as hand cream. It contains ginseng extracts, shea butter and olive oil and was not sticky, not greasy and I loved using it!

4. Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly. Repurchase? No.

I like the idea of shower jelly and it was quite fun. Nevertheless, this specific product scent was nbot my favourite, but I could imagine getting other versions of it.

5. Kerastase Elixir Ultime. Repurchase? Maybe.

I received this hair oil trial the last time I was giving my hair a cut. It is a nice and lightweight oil and I could imagine to try it again. Unfortunately, Kerastase products are quite expansive.

6. Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Concentrate Protein. Repurchse? Maybe.

You can read my review >>here<<. I enjoyed using these two hair treatments and I can imagine that I would repurchase them again from time to time.

7. Mise en scène Perfect Repair Treatment Pack. Repurchase? Yes!

This treatment was georgeous. It made the hair super soft and easy to comb after an instant. Although labelled for twice a week use I was using it almost every second day because I loved the effect. I would like to repurchase this again. Although I read in some that they think the scent is old-women scent, but I got used to it and even liked it after all. I still have the Mise en scène Perfect Serum and I’m planning to write a comparative post between a couple of hair oils.

8.Dewytree Real Collagen nutrition serum. Repurchase? Maybe.

There is still an upcoming review for this :D I enjoyed this serum and I love the pump bottle it has and the subtle rose/flower scent.

9. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Cream. Repurchase? Maybe.

a hydrating cream which contains hyaluronic acid and is very nice on the skin. You can read my review >>here<<.

10. Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum. Repurchase? Maybe.

Another hydrating product from the Klairs Rich Moist soothing line. I was enjoying all the products, especially in winter. Read my review >>here<<.

11. Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil. Repurchase? Yes! As soon as I’ve finished my other cleansers.

This is the best cleansing oil I have tried so far and I can recommend you to try it! Read my review >>here<<. I love the scent, I love how it cleanses. A great product!

12. Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. Repurchase? Yes!

Suprisingly, I fell in love with that toner, although I thought it will be my least favourite of the Klairs products. It has a nice pH of 5 and is really a good preparation facial toner. Read my review >>here<<.

13. Hanskin Bio Origin BB creams. Repruchase? Maybe the ampoule BB.

I wrote a comparison review on these two BB creams >>here<<. I liked the ampoule BB better than the other one, but both are descent products.

14. COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol. Repurchase? A good product to have in case of emergency!

I received this selfmade trial version of COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol in a giveaway by Sam Murakami from ColorCrush (check out her blog/videos). Thanks again for the lovely giveaway, dear ♥ I must say I had a positive impression on this product and I would love to try it for a longer time, if I have some more skin troubles (hopefully not). This treatment contains propolis, AHA/BHA and works great on troubled skin. It has an acid pH of 4 and should be used after a pH lowering toner and before your other moisturizing steps (including moisturizing toner/essences/serums/creams/ampoules etc). It is on sale at Wishtrend atm!

15. Yadah Vita-Whitening Aqua Gel and Puregreen Moisturizing Cream. Repurchase?No.

These two sample sized creams were a dissapointment. First: the lids were not closing properly, so I assume that some of the product either leaked out or evaporated/dried up after a while, although I didn’t open it before. Due to this my skin didn’t like the creams. One was to heavy balmtype and the other didn’t absorb either.

16. Tonymoly Eggpore Nose Pack Package. Repurchase? These, or other nosepacks.

I like to use nosepacks occasionally, although they say they are not good. But I love the feeling of seeing some dead skincells and dirt and babyhair pulled of by these kind of patches, although it is quite gross, especially when my bf does use these :D

Do you know any of these and did you try them yourself? What is your opinion on these products I showed above? I’d be happy about your comments ♥

Unboxing: MeMeBox NakedBox No. 24 All in One

9. October 2014

My last MeMebox Unboxing is almost one month ago and it feels like ages, since so many new boxes have been announced and have been sold out in the mean time. MeMeBox keeps up with new topics and discount opportunities, that it is difficult to resist buying for me sometimes. Although I was planning on making a spending break from MeMeBox I couldn’t resist grabbing the MeMeBox Nakedbox No. 24, the so called “all-in-one”  box. The products in this box were announced previously, and they should be products with “all in one” properties, which means that they give multiple benefits in one.

MeMeBox NakedBox No. 24 All in One

MeMeBox is a box service company, offering a wide amount of different beauty boxes. Unlike most western beauty boxes which have to be subscribed for on a monthly basis, MeMeBoxes can be preordered but that doesn’t force you to buy more than the desired box. They ship to many countries and the products they send in their boxes are mainly Korean. Apart from their monthly Global Boxes like the ones I reviewed previously (check out the links at the end of the post), they also have a huge amount of themed boxes, Mini Boxes, Boxes where you know what is inside, so called Superboxes with a higher value and so on…just check out their online store and you’ll find a huge selection of different boxes. Since they have become very popular within the blogger community they sell out pretty fast, but they bring up new beauty boxes so fast, that you cannot keep up with them anyways. At the end of this post I will make a list of all the discounts they offer at the moment, too.

Here is the description of the box:

“This box with all of its components revealed from the very beginning is dedicated to you girls out there who feel a little bit shy or hesitant in trying out our our beauty boxes. Nakedbox #24 includes smart all-in-one items that give you multiple benefits in one!”

As you can see, the main reason for people buying this box is because they know what is inside the box. A lot of people don’t like these surprise boxes because they preferr to know what they buy. The Nakedboxes are addressing especially these people. Below you can see the content of the box. all the products in this box are full sized products ♥ Unfortunately, there was no product card included this time :/

MeMeBox NakedBox No. 24 All in One

1. IOPE Essential Tone & Wrinkle Care Eye Cream 25ml ($86) Full-sized Product
Enriched with shea butter and jojoba oil, this moisturizing eye cream will fill the lines between wrinkles around the eye area and creates a protective moisture layer to prevent further sagging and wrinkle formation.

2. SHARA SHARA Real Sauce Lemon Mask 20g X 3ea ($4) Full-sized Product
Packed with vitamin-rich lemon extracts, the Real Sauce Lemon Mask works to balance out the moisture and oil balance, brighten up, and rejuvenate dull, darkened complexions.

3. INSOBEAU Perfect Deep Clean One-Step Cleansing Water 200ml ($22) Full-sized Product
There’s no need for double cleansing with this smart One-Step Cleansing Water from insobeau. Its gentle formula, made from natural derivatives, works to quickly and easily deep cleanse all makeup and skin impurities in one step. Plus, it functions as a moisturizing toner as well, protecting, soothing and brightening the skin all in one.

4. DEWYTREE Real Collagen Nutrition Serum 50ml ($39) Full-sized Product
Dewytree’s popular Real Collagen Nutrition Serum is infused with high concentrates of collagen and treats enlarged pores, sagging skin, and other signs of aging with its highly moist and nutritious formula. It expedites the skin’s regeneration and renewal cycle for the look of more youthful and luminous skin.

5. THE SKIN HOUSE Face Calming Galactomyces Cream 30ml ($19) Full-sized Product
Containing galactomyces fermented extracts and other active ingredients, this facial cream soothes and replenishes skin stressed from external stimulus for a healthier, more youthful complexion.

6. HELLO EVERYBODY Nature Holic Hand Cream Grapefruit 50ml ($12) Full-sized Product
This super-creamy grapefruit hand cream penetrates the skin quickly to protect, moisturize and replenish dry skin and nails. Enriched with hyaluronic acid, Indian Gooseberry and grapefruit extracts, this cream will nourish skin and nails to its finest. Citrusy Mandarin Orange and Grapefruit top notes will keep your hands and nails feeling fresh all day!

MeMeBox NakedBox No. 24 All in One

The main reason for me for buying this box was the Iope eye cream. Iope is a high end korean brand and I’ve never tried anything from that brand before. The box retailed for 23 US$ and the value of this product alone is worth this money definitively. The other reasons for me were the Shara Shara masks. I really do love the design of their products and these sheet masks look so adorable. I will definitively put up a review as soon as I’ve tried them. I also heard a good deal about The Skin House Face Calming Galactomyces cream and I needed a new moisturizer anyways. I’m also curious about the cleansing water because I didn’t try any cleansing waters yet.  This box was definitively worth its money and even more, because I knew for which reasons I bought the box. What do you think of this box? Do you preferr the surprise boxes or the nakedboxes? And which products from this box would you love to try out, too?

Unboxing: MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10

4. June 2014

I know that there has been a couple of unboxing posts on MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10, but nevertheless I’d like to show you the content of my box. If you have any requests on reviews on the single items feel free to leave a comment. Again, MeMeBox totally convinced me with their 10th Korean beauty box. It arrived at my doorstep feeling heavy and opening the box just confirmed that it was fully loaded with some great items.

MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10

MeMeBox is a box service company, offering a wide amount of different beauty boxes. Unlike most western beauty boxes which have to be subscribed for on a monthly basis, MeMeBoxes can be preordered but that doesn’t force you to buy more than the desired box. They ship to many countries and the products they send in their boxes are mainly Korean. Apart from their monthly Global Boxes like this one, they also have a huge amount of themed boxes, Mini Boxes, Boxes where you know what is inside, so called Superboxes with a higher value and so on…just check out their online store and you’ll find a huge selection of different boxes. Since they have become very popular within the blogger community they sell out pretty fast, but they bring up new beauty boxes so fast, that you cannot keep up with them anyways XD

MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10

Let’s see what was the content of MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10: As you can see, the box was completely filled and the products look like mainly full sized products. Actually, there was only one sample sized product in this box. A card with the product description in English is included, too (click the image below to enlarge).

MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10

So here are the products that were included this time:


MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10


1. Dewytree Ginseng Nutritious Black Mask (full size product, 4 US$)

A sheet mask with ginseng and gingko leaf extracts. The packaging is kind of cute. Also, I never tried a ginseng mask so far although I heard that it is a super beneficial ingredient. I’m curious to try this out.

2. CaoLion Mool Pool Deep Cleansing (full size product, 9 US$)

Cleansers make me happy! It seems they always come at the right time, when I’m about to finish an old tube XD. This cleanser is advertised as perfect cleanser for a one step cleansing. Korean’s usually do double cleansing routine, starting with an oil cleanser in order to remove the makeup and a foam cleanser for a second cleansing step. CaoLion Mool Pool deep Cleansing promises to remove makeup and even waterproof makeup and be gentle to your skin at the same time. I didn’t try it yet, but it will be used pretty soon.

3. Drww Multi-Action Smart Cream Gel (full size, 59 US$)

59 $?! What kind of wonder product is this?! The cardboard packaging is huge, but the tube containing the product is smaller. Nevertheless, it is quite some cream. I already started using this. It is a moisturizing gel. The consistency is like Jell-O. but as soon as it is applied on the skin it melts away. I like it so far! Plus: it is usable as sleeping mask, too!

4. Mise en Scène Curling Essence 2X (full size product, 14 US$)

This Korean brand for hair care seems to gain some popularity in Korea. It is my first time receiving a product from Mise en Scène. I used it 2 times so far and it does what it should, It gives you some nicely defined curls if you have naturally curled hair like I do. I think it will be great for making curls with a curling iron, too, but I didn’t try it yet.

5. Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB (sample size product- full size costs 45 US$)

Although this MeMeBox only contains a sample sized version of this BB cream with 4,5 ml content it is one of my highlight products. I love BB creams and a BB cream in a bottle with a pipette is something I never seen before. I tried it once and I will try it a couple of time more. The novellty of this BB cream is probably that it contains royal jelly extract.

6. Atopalm Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum (full size product, 49 US$)

Again a product with a proud price. I would never have bought it by myself. It is an eye repair serum and it has a funny open/closing mechanism. I used it already and it feels nice and absorbs quickly. It is my second favorite product from this MeMeBox.

All in all, I’m super happy with MeMeBox GetItBeautyBox Global No. 10. It contains mostly skincare, except of the BB cream sample, but the skincare products are well balanced. The value of the products is amazing, too, considering the fact that you pay 23 US$ normally, plus shipping (6.99 US$ for standard shipping). But I think I never paid the full price for any of the MeMeBoxes I ordered up to now. They always have so many ways to save money, by coupons and other promotions. I can definitively recommend you to check out MeMeBox online store.

Here is a list of the current events/ promotions to save some money:

For signing up you receive 2 MeMePoints worth 2 US$/ at the moment they have a banner on their shop saying that you can even receive 10 MeMePoints worth 10 US$

Free shipping on orders above $70 from Memeshop: FREESHIPPING

$5 off on orders over 3 Memeboxes: MEMEBUNDLE3 

Also, when making orders of some of the boxes you might get MeMePoints, too, this helps to save the shipping costs for your next order if you get addicted like me XD
