Memebox Special #38 My Mask Box (Masks #5)

Kia Ora!

Another Memebox to add to my growing collection. I've been looking forward to this one since I got the last Masks box, it was amazing! I'm hoping that this one will be just as good, and continue to feed my addiction to face masks.



The box is full, which is always a good sign. I can't wait to dive in and investigate the contents.



Pictures of the all-important card, which guides us through the strange world of Korean beauty.


Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack 100ml

This is the same cute piggy that appeared on the very weird cleanser I got in the Earth and Sea Cosmetics box a few weeks ago. This one doesn't appear to have spider bits in it, so I might give it a go. The card describes it as having a jello-like texture, and it seems to be all wobbly like jelly in the fridge. Very exciting!

It is a moisturiser (I assume from the information on the card), so doesn't fit perfectly into the the Masks theme, but I'm not complaining. I like trying out new products, and something funky like this is right up my alley.

RRP: $30
Full size.


Milky Dress Aqua Sleeping Pack 50ml

I haven't tried a sleeping pack yet, and have been keen to give it a go. I think it is a cream that you slather on your face before going to bed, and wash off first thing in the morning. I don't know how well this will work for me as I can't sleep on my back. I predict some very messy pillow cases!

The cream itself is nice, smells sweet, and absorbs rapidly into my hand. I'll be sure to report back (probably in an empties posting) about how this sleeping pack goes, and if I notice any effects.

RRP: $23
Full size.


Pro You Pore Control Facial Mask 200g

This bottle is huge! One of the things that I love about Memebox is that they don't go looking for sample size, but usually have a majority of full size items. It would be rare to receive a product this big in a Western subscription box.

This is a mask that specifically works on blackheads, and  other problem areas of the face. It uses witch hazel, aloe vera, green tea, and chamomile extracts which all sound amazing. I've been having problems with blackheads recently, so I'm really happy to have this to play with.

RRP: $53 (wow seriously??!!)
Full size.


PureDerm Wrinkle Reducer Gel Patches

I tried out some eye patches a couple of months ago, and really liked them. I am very happy to get these, especially as it is a full pack. I tend to do new masks or other face things with my SO, and I'm sure he will be ecstatic when I tell him I have more things to try out on his face. I really am looking forward to using these though, as I had great results last time I used some.


Tosowoong Help me Neck Patch

A mask for saggy necks. There really are the most interesting things in Korean beauty. I'm keen to give these a go, and will report  back when I have more to say about these. I can't rip open the packets yet, but will try it sometime soon.

RRP: $30 (full size 10 packs)
Sample size (2 packs): $6


Insobeau Beauty Secret Step Up Bust Mask

You what, mate? These feel like gel patches, and you are supposed to wear them for 8 hours. I think these are a very strange product ... and I can't wait to use them. They are also appearing at the perfect time, when everyone (at least in New Zealand) is concentrating on Breast Cancer awareness and this draws more attention to it. Expect an update on how these went (probably soon).

RRP: $14
Full size.


Pure Smile Mask Sheet 5 Set

This was a very thick packet of masks, and I'm pleased to see that there are going to be a great addition to my sheet mask drawer. There were several different types that were included in the box, and I got the Citron one. I'm ok with this, although I am a little uncertain about applying lemon to my face, as the citric acid is supposed to be very very bad. So I will give one of these a go, and see if there are any negative effects, and go from there.

RRP: $6
Full size.


This wee sample seems to be a bonus in the box. I'm not really sure what it is, so I'm going to have to do some research first. But a wee sample is great as an extra, I'm happy to have something else to play with! I am impressed with the packaging, and how there will only be one small hole to squeeze product out of. That should help eliminate some of the messiness that comes with foil packets.

Total value of the box: $144.
Wow, that's a great value for the box. I paid $23 I think so I'm really happy with that. This box arrived after the not so great September subscription boxes, and has made me really happy to have gotten it. 

I really like all of the products in here, and will actually use each one. Some are a bit strange, but that won't stop me. I also think it is a well curated box, and has a variety of different mask related products. Great work Memebox! Keep it up!

They do keep tempting me with new boxes. I'm currently debating whether I can afford the new Masks box, or the While You Were Sleeping Box. What do you guys think?
