Unboxing: Mishibox November 2015

2. December 2015

And here is another unboxing, but this time I’m super excited to introduce to you my first ever Mishibox! Yeeeii! I was eagerly waiting for the moment Mishi Box would start shipping to europe and finally I’m able to try them on my own! This monthly Korean beauty subscription box is packed with with a combination of 4 – 6 deluxe-sized samples and full-sized Korean beauty products from a wide range of Korean brands. Today I present you the content of the Mishibox November 2015:

Mishibox November 2015

MISHIBOX is a U.S.-based online retailer providing a wide selection of Korean beauty products. Apart from their online store they also offer a monthly Korean beauty subscription service that delivers a combination of 4-6 deluxe-sized samples and full-sized Korean beauty products. This way they are trying to help you to discover your favorite Korean beauty products. Their aim is to make Korean beauty products easily accessible to everyone regardless of where you live or what language you speak. Mishi (pronounced “me-she”) is their bunny mascot! When I first discovered about Mishibox I directly subscribed for their newsletter, because they planned to deliver worldwide one day. When I received their Email that finally Mishibox was shipping to Germany aswell I was sooo happy! And here it is finally, my first Mishibox:

Mishibox November 2015

The pink box was filled with 6 products in total, 2 of these being sample sized products, one mini-sized product and 3 products in full-size. Each box comes with a product description card, which is very detailed and even reminds us how we can distinguish between expiration and manufactured date and were we can find the list of translated ingredients. I really like the effort they put into the box by translating all the ingredients for example. You can even participate in a Mishibox Selfie Contest in order to win something! So lovely!

Mishibox November 2015

The theme of the Mishibox November 2015 was snail mucin. Two of the full-sized products are using snail mucin in their ingredients list. The variety of different brands in this box is nice, too: we have known brands like Etude House, Tonymoly and Secret Key, but also less known brands like D’Ran and White Cat. The product types are also versatile. Although all the products are skin care items you will find a cleanser, a sheet mask, a cream, a toner and emulsion, and an eye cream. It’s almost a complete skin care routine! Below I will go into the details of each of the products. Nevertheless, I will do a full review once I’ve used the products for some time.

Mishibox November 2015

The main product for me was the D’Ran Wonder Snail Treatment Cream. This nutrience-rich and highly moisturizing cream is perfect for upcoming winter days. Snail mucin is the key ingredient here and it contains 10% of it. Some other nice ingredients of this cream are Glycerin, Silkworm Cocoon Extract, Niacinamide, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Panthenol, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (jojoba) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Camellia Sinensis Callus Culture Extract and Human Oligopeptide-1 (also called EGF). The jar comes with 100g of content in a beautiful jar, too. It retails for 43 US$ which is super expensive, but it makes me even more happy to find this in a 20 US$ subscription box! I’m looking forward to use this cream, especially since I already tried a product from D’Ran before and was happy with it. Other than the one product from the past, this brand is hardly known to me.

The second item containing snail mucin is the Secret Key Snail + EGF Repairing Eye Cream. This eye cream is supposed to be very popular and it comes in a typical eye cream type. Snail secretion filtrate and EGF are the key ingredients here aswell, but it also contains some plant and fruit extracts and even some fermented plant extract. The tube contains 30 g and retails for 17 US$.

Mishibox November 2015

I was very happy to spot a sheet mask from the new brand White Cat. I just recently reviewed their eye balm and this is now the second product I can try from this brand. There were three types of this sheet mask which were selected randomly for each Mishibox in November. I received the White Cat Charcoal Pore Tightening Mask, which is directed towards pore care as the name already suggests. The masks from White Cat are free from paraben, mineral oil, benzophenone, petrolatum, imidazolidinyl, urea, talc, silphate and BHT. and I’m still loving their logo with the white cat :D The White Cat sheet masks retail for 3 US$.

Mishibox November 2015

The Tonymoly Fresh Cleansing Tissues in Mishibox November 2015 are provided in a miniature size. These water-type facial cleansing tissues contain baking powder for removing makeup and I’m not sure whether I like that or not, since baking powder is usually drying on my skin. But it also contains 5 natural oil ingredients to moisturize and nourish the skin. I will definitively try these, but I’m not sure whether I will like them or not. :D This small packaging of 15 tissues retails for 5 US$.

The last two items in Mishibox November 2015 were the two sample sized bottles from Etude House Age Defense line: there is a bottle of the Age Defense Essential Softener and a bottle of the Age Defense Essential Emulsion. I love these kinds of miniature bottles, especially for travelling! I didn’t try any products from Etude House’s Age Defense line yet, so I’m curious about these, too!

Mishibox November 2015
My first impression of Mishibox and their subscription box is very positive. Although all the products in their November box were skin care products there for items for almost all skin care routine steps. The themed ingredient snail mucin was included by two full-sized products containing snail mucin. The variety of brands was well balanced with known and unknown Korean cosmetic brands. The total value of 68 US$ for a subscription box sold at 19.95 US$ is awesome! If you are interested in Mishibox you can use my referral ID and get a discount code for $5 USD off your order (min. $30 USD) for your first purchase. At the moment their box subscription is closed due to high demand, but you can put your name on the waiting list. Mishibox also has a product store where you can buy a specific product, too. Until 4ths of December they are having Blackfriday sales with up to 30% off by using the coupon BFSALE2015. Did you try Mishibox already? How do you like their subscription box? Did you know any of the products I received?

Just as a short reminder: All products mentioned and reviewed on this blog are of my personal opinions. This product here was sent to me for reviewing purpose by which doesn’t influence me in providing my honest opinion on the products.

Graveyard: January and February Empties 2015

28. February 2015

I tried to use up as much as possible, before I by new products in 2015, and for the first two months I did a good efford in also emptying my sample stash. Here are my product empties for January and February and a quick impression on each product. As usual, I didn’t include any sample sachets or masks.

January and February Empties 2015

Frizz Ease Shampoo & Conditioner for curly hair- Repurchase? Maybe.

I used and liked the fullsize of this in the past quite often (these are travelsized tubes), but atm I’m in love with my Shiseido Tsubaki Shampoo, that I don’t want to go back to any western brands :D Within the western drug store brands these are still my favourites.

Iope Super Vital VIP kit- Repurchase? No.

I used up the complete items of this kit and I’m really proud I did without changing to another line inbetween. You can find my review of this highly nourishing and moisturizing line >>here<<.

Secret Key Snow White Cream- Repurchase? Yes.

I loved using this. It gave a nice finish to the face and it smells great! The packaging is very pretty, too! Read my review >>here<<.

Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream- Repurchase? Maybe.

I used this eyecream during daytime because I think it is not moisturizing enough to be used at nights. I like the size of this eyecream and the fact that it is really affordable and can be used up in a realistic period. I could imagine repurchasing it, but I would rather try other eye creams first :D Find my review >>here<< .

SXM I Value Body Amoule- Repurchase? No.

This was part of the MeMeBox Diet Box and I was really curious about this ampoule. You take some drops and put it to the desired regions of your body. I could feel the skin being somehow tightened while applying but it did not show any longterm effects for me.

Shiseido Benefiance NutriPerfect Day Cream- Repurchase? No…sigh

This creamy cream is rich in its consistency and hydrates skin nicely. It also contains SPF 15. I enjoyed trying out this tiny tube, but since it is an expensive brand I don’t think that I’ll be repurchasing.

Welcos Confume Argan Treatment Hair Ampoule- Repurchase? YES!

I’m in healthier-hair-heaven since I bought Confume Argan Oil and Confume Treatment Hair Ampoule! My hair has been frizzy and dry since forever, but these products are amazing! This is the first of 5 tiny bottles and I love it! This indeep hair treatment doesn’t need to be rinsed out. It is mixed by a bit water and turns milky and warmer….can be used on wet and dry hair…I will buy more definitively! and I’ll be doing a review for both the argan oil and the treatment soon!

Only you Green Tea Jasmin Moisturizing Body Lotion- Repurchase? No.

I think this was a gift and came together with a shower gel. The scent was really nice. The bodylotion took a bit longer to absorb, though.

Lancome La Vie Et Belle shower Gel- Repurchse? No.

This was a gift with an order. I like the scent, but other than that there is nothing special about this shower gel.

Kneipp Almond Blossom Oil- Repurchse? Yes.

I used up the fullsized bottle of this last year and I loved it and this tiny version is no exception. The scent is soooo nice and it makes the skin feel very soft.

L’Occitane Karite Handcream -Repurchase? I would love to.

This is a rich and nourishing hand cream with a nice scent. There is nothing negative to say about this and I would love to try more handcream from L’Occitane.

Kerasys Moringa Miracle Essence- Repurchase? Yes!

A very nice smelling and softening hair essence which I loved to use. It is not as super effective as the Confume Argan oil, but it is nice for everyday use without making your hair greasy!

January and February Empties 2015

 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 ♥

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

7. January 2015

Hello my dearest readers! Happy new year to all of you! I know I’m a bit late for a roundup of last year, but I didn’t want to start into 2015 with simply a new review, which is why I decided to show you my favourite 20 asian cosmetics products which I reviewed in 2014. It was quite difficult to decide because I have quite a few products I liked last year, but I could shorten it to 20 products, including makeup, skincare, nails, masks and even a hair product. I still have some products I bought last year, but I didn’t review them, and I decided to not include them into my top 20 of 2014, but rather save them for this year, after I did the reviews :) Here is my selection of products:

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

I’ll start off with my favourite makeup products last year being the following:

Belleme Cosmetics Get your Crayon in “Bad Girl”: This lip crayon had a burgundy color and was one of my favourite lip crayons I used last year. the color is very pretty and I love the simplicity of the design of Belleme products. They look pretty and simple, without being too mature. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014


Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick: I know that Innisfree already has an improved version of this lipstick called Innifree Creammellow Lipstick, and I already bought two lipsticks of the new ones and I love them (more than the Color Glow ones), but nevertheless I have to point out how much I adored and still love using the Color Glow Lipsticks…the colors are beautiful and pigmented and the lipsticks feel not drying at all. >>Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014


Aritaum World Glam Coating Tint in “Shanghai”: A beautiful and bright red color which looks so pretty on the lips. This tint is quite long lasting and has a smooth texture. The scent and taste is also pleasant and I’m carrying this tint in my handbag most of the time. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014


Pony X Memebox Eyeshadow Palette: Here is a more recently reviewed product which I love using, although I rarely use eyeshadows. This palette made me overcome my laziness of applying eyeshadow – I still dont use eyeshadow daily, but now I’m using some on the weekends at least :D The palette contains some nice natural shades and has matte and shimmery eyeshadows. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014


Missha Magic Cushion Case: This D.I.Y. cushion case is awesome and I’m loving it! I’m using it daily since I bought it and it is fun to mix and match your own BB cream (or CC cream) in this case and helps me to use up some of my not suitable BB/CC creams, too. >> Read my review here <<.

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014


Etude House Princess Happy Ending Belle Rose Cheek Blusher: Apart from the packaging which is georgeous (it is Disney and princesses…what else to say?!) the color of this rosegold blush is beautiful! The rose shaped form of the blush even adds more beauty to this! >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher: Again, lovely packaging and a matte drying cream blush with rose scent! I love the scent so much ♥ >>Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Now, let’s take a look at some nail products:

Etude House Sweet Idea Bunny Nails: The idea of this bunny nail set is really cute and I also love it, that one bottle has a broad brush and the other one a fine one, which makes nail art easier. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014


Innisfree Eco Peel Off Base Coat: Since I have this peel off coat I can use my glitter nail polishes more often without having to worry that I’ll spend a hard time to clean my nails again. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Etude House Help My Finger Quick Dry Drop: I don’t know why I didn’t try a quick drying drop for nail polishes earlier…it made my life so much more convenient since I’m owning this. I can only recommend you this kind of product if you love using nail polish! >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

My favourite skincare products 2014 were these:

Secret Key Snow White Cream: I used this creamy cream daily and it is almost empty now :D It has a nice scent and makes your skin look more even and silky. It is a nice primer for BB creams and really makes the skin less dull…additionally it has a beautiful packaging and a nice baby powder/ soapy scent. Worth every penny! >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Meishoku DET Clear Bright & Peel Peeling Gel: This japanese brand is not well-known, but I can recommend you to try this peeling jelly if you love peeling jellies anyways. It is cheap, can be used in the shower and makes the skin super smooth. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil: I’m in love with this cleansing oil from the moment I first tried it. It cleans away makeup reliably and it smells of sweetened black tea to me..moreover my skin feels still moisturized and not drying after using it…great for colder seasons and people with dry skin! >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

The Face Shop Mango Seed Silk Moisturizing Face Butter: This deeply moisturizing formula convinced me totally…it made my dry skin feel perfectly moisturized and the scent of the Mango Seed Line is heavenly, too. I have to many facial creams at the moment, otherwise I would have repurchased it already! >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Additionally to the skincare products mentioned above I have some mask recomendations for you, too:

Beyond The God of Patches Sheet Masks: Adoarably designed sheet masks which do a nice job in moisturizing. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Care Lab Powerful Pudding Mask: This is a fun mask feeling like jelly and afterwards hardening on your face like a hydrogel mask. The idea is great and the packaging design cute. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

ONL Saladit Essential Juice Sheet Masks: There is a nice selection of vegetable masks here and each targets another skin concern. I found that some of them were really nice masks so they are definitively worth a try although not well known. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Skinfood Strawberry Bkack Sugar Wash Off Mask: I love the Skinfood Packs and Masks and this one has a great scent (strawberry) and makes your skin smooth by being gentle to it on the same time. >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

Wish Formula Panda Eye Essence Mask: Eye masks can be very relaxing and these are additionally boosted up with ferment extract and vitamin C… I enjoyed using these a lot! >> Read my review here <<

Top 20 asian cosmetics products 2014

And last but not least my favourite hair care product from 2014:

Damoae Therapy Shampoo: I’m not a fan of herbal scents, but this shampoo works great! It makes your hair feel great and healthy and gives it a nice shine. It is pricey though, but if you have a look at my before and after pictures this shampoo really worked for me and made my hair stronger and nicer. >> Read my review here <<

Graveyard: September and October Empties

6. November 2014

I completely forgot to make an empty post for Septmeber and here are now my product empties from two months. Again, I’m really trying hard to use up all my opened products at the moment and it starts to show some progress slowly. I didn’t keep the sample sachets or sheet masks though…It would be too much of a mess. Nevertheless, I hope you’ll have fun reading!


1. Dita Von Teese Rouge Body Lotion – Repurchase? Yes.

I love the scent of this line by Dita. I tried all the perfumes and the Rouge Line is my favourite scent and at the same time this body lotion smells great. The scent lingers on the skin for a long time and it absorbs fast and makes the skin feel nice. I will repurchase this (I still have the shower gel in use atm…*_*).

2. Naobay Protective Shampoo and Shower Gel -Repurchase? No.

This was part of one of my older Glossyboxes. I used it as shower gel only, so I cannot say anything about the quality as a shampoo. The scent was not my favourite scent but it wasn’t bad either. Nevertheless, it didn’t convince me in a way that I would repurchase it.

3. Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion – Repurchase? Maybe.

You will find my review >>here<<. This was part of one of the Global MeMeBoxes. It is a citrus scented moisturizing lotion. I liked that the citrus/lemon scent was natural and not like bathroom cleaning products. It absorbs quickly, too and was not sticky at all. It was a tiny bit to runny for my tasting but I could imagine to try one of their other lotions.

4. The Faceshop Face It Auro Color Control Cream- Repurchase? Yes.

I really do like this CC cream from The Faceshop. It has a nice coverage and lovely finish. I’m sad that it is emptie now, but there are refills available. As soon as I have used up 2-3 of my other BB/CC cream tubes I will repurchase this. I also like the fact that you can buy refills for it. See my review >>here<<. I’m sorry, that my older posts have blurry images…this is because of the switch I made to my new domain. I’ll try to fix all the older posts as soon as I have some spare time. :/

5. CaoLion Mool Pool Deep Cleansing -Repurchase? No.

Actually, I didn’t like this too much. It didn’t remove everything, it had a almost watery consistency and I didn’t like the scent.

6. Balea Diamantentraum Bodylotion – Repurchase? Yes.

Balea is a German drugstore brand, which is easily available and has fair prices. This bodylotion was a limited edition and I liked the scent. It made a nice feeling of the skin. Since it is affordable I would definitively repurchase their bodylotions, but maybe another version, just for the variety.

7. Kneipp Hautöl Mandelblüten Hautarzt – Repurchase? Yes.

Another German brand :) This almond blossom oil has such a nice scent. It is perfect for dry skin and delivers deep nourishment. I enjoyed using it, and I have a second travel-sized version of this oil still in use.

8. Pure Smile Muddy Girl Charcoal Face Mask – Repurchase? Maybe.

This charcoal-type mask pack from the Japanese brand Pure Smile was in my first MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist. It has a heartshaped packaging and contains enough product for 2 times usage. It is a mud-type mask which dries on your face. It has some cooling effect and I heard that some reacted to these pacs, but luckily I just experienced the cool feeling and a tightened skin. I would like to purchase other masks from this brand just to see how they compare.

9. Secret Key Starting Treatment Essence – Repurchase? Maybe.

Since I tried samples from Missha’s Time Revolution First Treatment Essence and was overwhelmed by it I wanted to get the essence. Unfortunately it is not the cheapest product. I found some reviews on Secret Key’s Starting Treatment Essence and read that it was comparable with the one from Missha, and even cheaper. So I decided to get the travel size. I enjoyed using it- but I enjoyed the one from Missha even better. Especially since the effects were much quicker visible and the scent of the Missha product is much nicer.Nevertheless, considering the price, I might buy the one from Secret Key again…

10. The Body Shop Vitamin E Nightcreme – Repurchase? Yes.

I love this cream! It was only a tiny sample jar, but it lasted for quite some time. This rich and nourishing night cream has a wonderful flowery scent and a perfect consistency for a night cream. It absorbs fast and makes the skin silky. I used it in combination with the Vitamin C serum from Tunemakers (see below).

11. Tunemakers VC-3 Serum – Repurchase? Maybe.

This stabilized vitamin C serum is a good alternative to O.S.T. Vitamin C Serum because it is mild and suited for sentitive skin, too. Unfortunately, the bottle is not large, but it lasted for 2,5 months. In general, both of the products from Tunemakers that I tried ( the toner and this serum) were nice products with few ingredients only. This brand is worth a closer look.

12. Shiseido Ibuki Protective Moisturizer – Repurchase? Yes.

I had quite some samples from the Ibuki line and I like the scent and the effect of the products. This emulsion is really great. It absorbs super fast into the skin and makes ist feel soft and moisturized without any stickiness or greasiness. If I had the money for it I would buy it immediately.

12. Only You Green Tea Jamine Bodyscrub – Repurchase? Maybe.

I didn’t know this brand but I received a set of products as a gift. I love drinking green tea and jamine, so I was very pleased about the scent. It is a milder body scrub with shower gel. I’m still using the shower gel and the body lotion, which have the same nice scent.

Graveyard: September and October Empties

These are quite some products. 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 ♥

Review: Secret Key Snow White Cream

13. May 2014


My previously reviewed MeMeBox was really a lucky one! It contained a bunch of really nice products which I integrated into my skincare routine and they work out great for me. You can check out the unboxing of the MeMeBox >>here<<. The item I was especially curious and happy about was Secret Key’s Snow White Cream. I wanted to try it for over a year but I never got the chance to buy it, and like someone heard my wish it was featured in a beauty box. *(^_^)/* Happy me!
Secret Key’s Snow White Cream is a Niacinamide containing cream for brightening the skin. It has properties of a face primer and works great in combination with your favorite BB/CC cream. Snow White is one of my favorite fairytales and in my opinion, the packaging Secret Key created for this product line is the perfect hit. The main color used for designing this package is white and black for the lettering and the elegant fairytale-ish ornaments.
Even the paper card box looks elegant. It contains the in-deep description and probably the ingredients, too, in Korean only, but on one side of the box, you can find an English description, written in ornamental lettering as if it was taken from a fairytale’s book.
The jar is made of plastic and contains an extra plastic separator between the lid and the cream. Since the plastic jar doesn’t feel really sturdy and the lid is probably not perfectly closeable, I would recommend you to not throw the plastic separator away. Since the cream contains Niacinamide it is important to close the cream as tightly as possible and the lid gives at least some additional protection. The paper card box also contains a clear colored plastic spatula, so you don’t have to use your fingers and keep contamination low.
As you can see, the cream itself has a solid white and creamy texture. It looks and smells like Nivea hand cream at first, but as soon as you feel it on your skin you’ll notice the difference because it kind of emulsifies on your skin and feels soft and melts easily. I really do love the scent, but if you don’t like intensive scents, I would not recommend you to buy it- or if you are unsure, buy some samples beforehand. Because of its melting properties it blends in nicely with the skin and leaves the skin slightly brightened and definitively more radiant. For oily skin, it might be also enough moisture, but I normally use some moisturizer before, especially when my skin feels tight and dry (In the image below I didn’t use any moisturizer).
It makes your skin look a bit more even and appear softer, but it doesn’t cover your redness completely. It didn’t give me any breakouts after using it for quite a time now, and I think my skin tone has improved and looks evener. Don’t expect this cream to change your skin color and make you look like Snow White, but the Niacinamide will help to even out your darker spots with the time. If you expect a magic product which turns you beautiful overnight, I would not recommend this to you, but if you look for a nice, priming cream below your BB/CC cream I can recommend this to you. Unfortunately, I didn’t find the complete ingredients list, but since it didn’t give me any problems yet, I guess that there are not many irritants included.
Another important point: If you use vitamin C containing products keep in mind to don’t use Niacinamide containing products together with the vitamin C containing products. I’m using this cream in the morning and use my O.S.T Pure Vitamin C Serum at night. If you want to use both products for the same time, you should at least wait 20 minutes/half an hour before applying the other products, so your skin has time to absorb. If you use Niacinamide and vitamin C together vitamin C will start oxidizing.
All in all, I really like this cream. It is no cream which fulfills wonders and makes you wake up as beautiful Snow White Princess. but it contains Niacinamide, it makes your skin look primed and prepped even without BB/CC cream (if you don’t have a lot of breakouts, you can use this cream even on its own and don’t need any other makeup). The application of the cream feels soft and nice on the skin and the scent is really nice, too. Nevertheless, if you have dry skin it won’t replace your daily moisturizer. I also would have wished for a vacuum pump bottle instead of the plastic jar, because it would preserve the Niacinamide longer.
As I already said, I received the Secret Key Snow white Cream with my previous MeMeBox. If you want to try a Korean beauty box I would say that MeMeBox is one of the best subscription boxes so far. The value is always great and the products are mainly Korean, too. They have also lots of differently themed boxes and you don’t have to subscribe for it monthly, but you can choose yourself which and when you want to get a box.
As for the Secret Key Snow White Cream, it is available from the following shops: for 19.05 US$
Testerkorea for ~7 US$

Unboxing: Get it Beauty Box by MeMeBox No. 8

23. April 2014
Here is the second Get it Beauty Box I ordered from MeMeBox. This time it is box No. 8. :)

What is MeMeBox? It is a monthly beauty box for mostly Korean makeup and skincare products. Unlike most beauty boxes it is not a monthly subscription box, instead you can order all boxes which are available and you want to order. They sell out quite fast, especially since they gained a lot of popularity in the blogger community. They stopped shipping internationally for some weeks, but know they are shipping to a lot of countries again, including Germany, which made me really happy :)
And here you can see what I received in my MeMeBox:
Flower Men Energy Factory Moist Boosting Sheet Mask- Hyaloronic Acid (25 g / US$ 4) – box contained fullsize product
This funny sheet mask comes in a fun packaging showing PSY’s face. You can use this as a real mask, too…for example if you want to give your friend’s a heart attack jumping out of nowhere while wearing this mask. I already tried it and it is a nicely moisturizing mask. Nothing exceptional, but nice if you love using sheet masks.
Hairich Vedacell Hair Program Shampoo (340 ml / US$ 23) – box contained product with 100 ml
This shampoo is free from sulfates, silicon and synthetic dyes and made with natural preservatives. I didn’t try this one yet, but I’m looking forward to do so, because I love testing new shampoos.
Tonymoly BCDation SPF 30 PA++ – Pink Beige (50 g / US$ 27) – box contained a 7 ml tube and a 1 ml pouch sample
I was really happy about this, because I saw it the other day online and I wanted to try it. This is a BB+CC foundation and could be thus a time saver for those using both CC creams and BB creams. I tried it already and a review will follow.
Heart Face Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack (100 ml / US$49) – box contained 20 ml jar
this Sleeping cream is supposed to moisturize your skin, minimize pores and control sebum production. I used it once and although I thought that it might be drying because of the pore care effect my skin felt smooth the next day. I will continue using it and write a detailed review on this.
Secret Key Snow White Cream (50 g / US$ 21) – box contained fullsize product
I wanted to try this cream for a year now and here it is. I’m so happy about it. this is a brightening cream, which is free from mineral oils, benzophenones, phenoxyethanbol and artificial pigments. It contains Niacinamide. I used it daily since I received it and I like it. There will be a review soon, too.
MAX Clinic Caviar Massage Oil Form Cleanser (110 g / US$ 73) – box contained fullsize product
So, just by chance my foam cleanser was empty and this one arrived to replace it. It is already integrated in my nightly routine. It is made from caviar oil and is supposed to clean your face from make-up and dirt.

I’m happy with this box. I use both the fullsize product daily and I’ve used the other products as well (except of the shampoo) and I’m absolutely happy. I ordered some more boxes and I cannot wait for them to arrive.

These regular boxes cost US$ 23 and US$ 6.99 for standard shipping but they offer a lot of different other boxes recently, so I would recommend you to definitively check out their web page:

What do you think about the box? Any product you like most?
