As many will know I am fairly new to Korean beauty products but the intrigue has always been there, so when MeMeBox got in touch and asked if I would like a box to test I jumped at the opportunity.
I know not everyone is completely sold on sample boxes but for $23 (just over £13) you receive a box packed with 4 - 8 full sized products as well as deluxe samples all of which are beauty products. Here is what is inside the MeMeBox #12...
1. Ryo Anti-Hair Loss Treatment ($12)
The idea is that this hair treatment not only helps promote hair growth by stimulating the scalp but will also soothe and calm the scalp. As I am currently awaiting to see if I am anaemic and shedding a lot of hair I decided against trying this out for now - in all probability it will most likely be beneficial for me but truth be told I just can't take any chances. I will review in full once I can.
2. Banlia Co. Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay Mask ($21)
I love, love clay masks and so does my blemish prone skin, this thick yet cooling mask is great for absorbing excess oil without stripping the skin as well as providing a deep cleanse. This mask claims to remove impurities clogged in pores and due to the mineral rich formulation it also provides moisture. I can't say I found the mask to be all that hydrating but it did cleanse really well and reminds me a lot of Origins Clear Improvement Face Mask.
3. Plagentra White Mark Cream ($38)
This is a stretch mark cream that also contains a few sachets of the same cream in the box.
It doesn't really give all that much information oh how it works but I have been trying it since the box arrived last week. So far I haven't noticed any difference as of yet but I will keep applying until the tube is finished and see what happens!
4. L.vida Nail Polish ($7)
Isn't this the cutest bottle ever? I have a bright pink shade that applies fairly opaque in two coats.
I will be honest in saying that other than the packaging there is nothing at all special about this polish.
5, Inter-cos Smooth Sensitive Removal Cream ($43)
Basically this is spray on hair removal cream. Now I realise this sounds silly but I am a little scared of hair removal cream as once I really burnt my legs using a tube. It took forever for the scabs to heal and since then it has been waxing and shaving for me. The cool thing about this particular cream is that is sprays on the skin so in theory it should be less messy.
6, Palan Crysence Organic Essence ($72)
This is a difficult product to describe, it is like a lotion yet is highly nourishing and hydrating like a deep conditioner. Now here's the kicker you leave it in the hair, if you fin certain leave in conditioners to be either too sticky (I think we have all over applied) or simply not nourishing enough then if you can find this snap it up! It has left my hair feeling silky soft and is perfect for colour damaged or really dry locks.
