By now I assume all of you are familiar with Memebox? So I will skip all the introduction etc... But if you are new to Memebox and you're curious about how this subscription service works, you can check out this and this post which I have explained all the details ~
Memebox never fails to impress! Even with their non-makeup-related boxes and that is the main reason why I have cancelled all my other subscription boxes and now I am only buying from Memebox.
Last week I have purchased the Herbal Cosmetics box which contains mainly skincare products, they had a shipping upgrade for this box at the time of my purchase, so they shipped with DHL and arrived overnight! How amazing?! For someone who hates the waiting time, they have really impressed me big time!
Superbox #31: Herbal Cosmetics - USD $32.00
Standard shipping: 10 ~ 20 Business days - USD $6.99
There was a shipping upgrade promotion when I placed my order, my parcel arrived overnight and I paid the same price of standard shipping.
The Herbal Cosmetics box came packed with six full size beauty products made from organic herbs such as lavender, tea tree, chamomile and peppermint, these ingredients are all well-known and highly appreciated in the beauty world for their amazing healing powers. The products packed in the Herbal Cosmetics box are meant to soothe and comfort your mind, body and soul.
As soon as I opened the box, I can smell honey ~ the smell came from the Skinfood Bath Salt.
Calmia Herb Cleansing Oil Gel 100ml ($18)
Product Description: With a nourishing blend of organic argan oil and organic complex - lavender, rosemary, chamomile, basil leaf, green tea extracts - this Herb Cleansing Oil helps maintain skin clear, soft and comfortable. Also, it turns into milk-colored foams that don't droop like average cleansing oils when lathered with water, allowing for a thorough cleansing deep down in your pores.
How to use:
Pump out a small amount, massage it onto your face and rinse off with warm water.
Oil gel cleanser? Sounds scary right?! It's actually not as bad as it sounds. I have used this once to remove my makeup and it does the job well, it cleanse and left my face feeling fresh and soft. The smell needs some times to get use to if you dislike herbal and freshly-cut grass smell. The packaging is a nice size to grab at and it comes with a easy-to-use pump.
Nasarang Herb B.B SPF50+ PA+++ 30g ($46)
A Blemish Balm (BB) made from various herbal and grain extracts, this is a premium BB cream for anti-wrinkle care, UV protection, and complexion brightening. It will replenish moisture to the skin, leaving it beaming with a natural glow. Despite its skin brightening property, it can be used for almost all skin types since it doesn't necessarily whiten your skin color; it'll only smooth out and cover up imperfections.
How to use:
Apply an adequate amount evenly over your face and pat it in for better adherence and a long-lasting finish.
When I squeeze out the product on my hand, the color looks kind of greyish beige and when I apply this on my face, I look like an Alien (the color turns greyish green and an off-white). :o Even thou I have applied this BB cream with a beauty blender, it still felt very heavy on my face.
Calmia Rooibos Aqua Sprinkler Gel Cream 150ml ($34)
Rooibos Aqua Sprinkler Gel Cream is a pudding-textured moisturizing gel which can be used as an all-in-one cosmetic for skin booster, toner, emulsion, essence, and gel cream. Rooibos extracts and sparkling water deliver nutrition-rich minerals and deep hydration to your skin. Uniquely, it can be sprayed on like a mist from a distance, but when you pump it close to skin, the texture comes out like a whitish gel cream!
How to use:
Spray from about 20cm away from your face and gently pat it in for absorbence.
This is by far my favorite product from the Herbal Cosmetics box! I use it as a toner at both day and night time. I have tried spraying from 20cm away from my face, but this method doesn't work as nicely as how I have imagined, when spraying as a mist, it pretty much just shoot out the product to one spot of your face, it's like pinching your cheek, it hurts. When a product states that you can use it as a mist, I often imagine it will spread out all over your face with just one spray, like a hairspray! Sadly, it always shoot in the wrong directions, wrong spots and it just doesn't work that great as a spray, so I use to cotton pads instead.
Rose Mine Azulene Calming Gel 75ml ($29)
Soothe, moisturize and cool your dried, sun-burnt skin with this Azulene Calming Gel. Its gentle formula from chamomile extracts helps alleviate redness, smooth out roughened skin texture, and even reduce red blemishes.
How to use:
Apply the claiming gel before sunscreen application or after a long outdoor activity under the sun. You can even apply it at the office because your skin also needs to be protected from the heat generated from computers.
I don't wear sunscreens and I don't go outdoors, but I think this is a great product and suits me very well as it stated this claiming gel can protect your skin from the heat generated from computers. I sit in front of a computer at least 8 hours a day for my job and plus, we can't seem to live without technologies these days, so we need as much protection as we can get for our skin from our frenemies: the computers.
Kskin Rose Sense 100% Essential Oil 5ml ($42)
This smart essential oil can be used for multiple functions - as a scented perfume when dropped on your clothes or under-arms, as an aroma bath oil, as a body massage oily, and also as your secret perfume for when you're suffering from monthly period and its annoying stench.
How to use:
Use 1 ~ 2 drops of the essential oil when intended as a scented perfume. Drop more when used as a bath oil.
Secret perfume? For use when you're suffering from monthly period? HUH??? What is a secret perfume?
Skinfood Bath Salt Honey Jasmine 80g ($3)
Made from various herbal extracts and mineral-rich organic salt from Australia, Skinfood's Bath Salt will alleviate and replenish your tired body and soul.
How to use:
Fill your bath tub with warm water and pour in the entire pack (80g). Enjoy a natural aroma scented bath.
This smells ahhhmazzzzing! Sadly I don't have a bath tub to use this with. Awwwh ~
