Memebox Princess Edition #3 Rapunzel

Kia Ora!

I got another Memebox today, and it is a really awesome box. However the products in this box are overshadowed by the bottle that opened during shipping. It was everywhere, and totally soaked through the tissue paper and even the box itself. The pictures below show you how it looked. I was not particularly impressed, but I suppose it was only a matter of time until something like this happened, considering the amount of boxes I get in the post. On the bright side, this box smelt fantastic! And Memebox were great when I contacted them (although they aren't sending me a replacement), and helped me sort it all out. 


The damage isn't pleasant, but none of the products are actually broken, they just needed a bit of a clean up.



L'Cret Hair Colour Keeper Treatment Shampoo 300ml

Even though it's missing half the product, I think this is the most exciting product in the box. I've been getting really sick of my Garnier shampoo (teach me to buy the biggest bottles available), and I am always keen to try new hair products. This one smells really lovely, all citrusy and fresh, and I'm very excited to use it sometime soon.

I just looked at the price (!) and I'm now very excited to try it out. I've never used such an expensive shampoo, and I hope it is salon quality. Even if it becomes the love of my life, I'm not going to be repurchasing this baby, a wee bit too expensive for me!

RRP: $42
Full size.


Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Vita-Clinic Mist 60ml

I am intrigued by the instructions on the card to "spray on your hair as often as possible." So am I supposed to empty the whole bottle in one go? Or should it be a few times a day? I'm rather confused but will experiment with this spray and see whether it has any realistic effects.

RRP: $24
Full size.


Toosowong 10 Hours 25ml

I've seen these syringe type products in other people's boxes before, but haven't tried one out as yet. This is supposed to go on and stay in your hair for 10 hours, so I'll probably do it overnight one night. I really like the packaging, although it does seem a bit excessive for what is essentially a one use product. Although at least you will get most of the product out of the tube this way.

On closer inspection, the tube is cracked on the back, and I'm not sure how this will affect the product. Does it matter if it is exposed to air prior to use? I'll have to send another email to Memebox and see what they say.

RRP: $12
Full size.


Sally's Box Friendly Argan Hair Mask

I actually think I might have died and gone to heaven with this product! As regular readers will know, I'm totally obsessed with face masks of all types, and am a sucker for things to make my hair healthier and nicer. To combine a mask and a hair treatment sounds divine, and I can't wait to use this one.

I've just landed myself a new job (full-time woop woop) so I might do this mask the night before I start. That will make my first day a winner, I'm sure of it!

RRP: $4
Full size.


Elizavecca Collagen Ceramide Coating Protein Treatment 100ml

Ooooh another cute piggy bottle. Thank god this one doesn't include spiders! I'm excited to use this one. It seems to be a cross between a treatment and a conditioner, so I'll probably end up using it as a conditioner with the shampoo from this box.

RRP: $34
Full size.


Pro-You Scalp Nutrition Calming Moisture Fluid 150ml

This one is the only product in here that I'm a bit iffy about. I'm not keen to add extra product to my hair twice daily, and not wash it out. I also don't seem to have major issues with dandruff or anything so it isn't the best match for me personally. However, I will try it out, and if it isn't working for me I'm sure I can find someone better suited to give it to.

RRP: $48
Full size.



The cards (slightly wet and splotchy) for those who want more information about the products.

Total value of the box: $164! (Holy heck, that is an insane value).

I'm really impressed with this box. I like all of the products in it, and I can't wait to try some of them out. I'm hoping that my hair will look phenomenal after all this love and care I give to it. Expect reviews of some of these products to appear, probably after the next few weeks when the hell period of end-of-year assessments is past. I will try and make the posting schedule 3 times a week then, so I can do some reviews and other exciting things rather than just all box openings.
