Memebox Special #45 Chocolate Mania

Kia Ora!

Back to blogging about the Memepocalypse. I'll get there slowly over the next wee while.

I love my Cacao box so much, that I bought the next chocolate installment within minutes of discovering it on the Memebox site. I can't wait to see how it compares! I don't know of anything that is better than Chocolate!



The card looks good so far, let's get into it properly and see what we've got.




Shara Shara Tempting Avocado Chocolate Massage Cream

Oh wow, a cream for giving massages. Mmmmmm, I'm drooling just thinking of it!  Oh wait, this isn't for facilitating a back massage, it's for your face. Hmmm, not quite as exciting. Apparently you massage this into your face for 5 minutes, and then wash it off. Sounds like a more complicated face mask. Interesting. However, I'm always game for new things, so I'll happily try this out. I ripped of the outer packaging and it smells really really nice, so I might try this out soon!

RRP: $11
Full size.


Binucook Cacao Choco Pie Soap 70g

Oooh a soap. It smells nice, but I've got a butt-ton of soaps already. It will make a nice Christmas present though, if nothing else. This is supposed to be for your face, which is cool, but may be used more as a body soap. I think it might be marketed at an American audience, as Choco pies aren't really a big thing here in New Zealand. I think they are around, and you can get one if you really want, but I haven't ever had one.

RRP: $6
Full size.


Dearberry Miss Mona Lisa Eyebrow 01 Choco Brownie

I've been getting in to eyebrow makeup recently, so I'm excited to see this. It swatches very lightly, which is great as my brows are quite blonde. I'm also really stoked to see the spooly on the end, as those are really handy to make the product look neat (i.e. not clumpy, or like a child drew your eyebrows on).

RRP: $2
Full size.


Skinfood Caco Hand Balm 50g

This smells delicious! The packaging is also super cute, which is great. What's not so great is that the balm is greasy and sits on top of your skin, despite spending twenty minutes attempting to rub it in. Since I have an overabundance of nicer hand creams, this one goes in the giveaway pile (coming up in January!)

RRP: $5
Full size.


Zamian Super Gold Cacao Pack 150g

This one is a face mask, which I'm sure you all know I'm ecstatic about! I am so happy to see this, and can't wait to try it out. I am interested by the claim that it has GOLD in it! Wow, that seems a bit excessive for a wash off mask, but I'll try it out. All in the name of science, of course! :P

RRP: $22
Full size.


Missha Cacao & Cream Facial Scrub 95g

I've been eagerly anticipating a Missha product in a box, and this one looks very exciting. I do like scrubbing the heck out of my face, rubbing away all the grime and icky bits that build up. This smells creamy, and I am keen to slather it all over my face.

RRP: $12
Full size.


Neogen Code9 Gold Cacao Cream 50ml

Another product that combines gold and cacao. I'm not sure I understand the connection, I guess the luxury element? Either way, this cream is thick and lovely. It is created for dry and sensitive skin, of which I have neither. But I'm going to take one for the collective team (of which I may be the only member), and use it anyway!

RRP: $30
Full size.


Purederm Choco Cacao Collagen Mask

Ahhh, the typical face mask that Memebox always includes. I do like this, although it does get a bit tedious on occasion. This isn't one of those occasions, and I'm happy to have this one. I've used these masks before (the Rice version) and like them well enough, so I'm happy to have another one to try out.

RRP: $2
Full size.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total value of the box: $90.
Not  the highest value box ever, but I really like all the products. I don't think I paid more than $40 so there is a higher value to the box than what I paid. I'm really excited bythe masks and the gold cream, and really want to just get into the box. So I'm going to go play with my goodies, and leave you with some codes and links to the Memebox 12 Days of Christmas. Enjoy!
