MEMEBOX Office Essentials Box
MEMEBOX ♥ Office Essentials BoxThis box is filled with must-have beauty essentials for career women, whether you had a crazy morning and need to finish getting ready for work or you simply need to freshen up in-between, there are handy beauty items every working woman absolutely needs to keep at the office.
I can't say I am disappointed with this box, because I already know what came in it; LOl yeah I had a peek and I saw the Shocking Toner and I was like OMG I need that. So I pretty much just purchased this box for the toner. Heheheh ~ Can't help it! The packaging is TOO CUTE! x
The Memebox Offiice Essential Box contains six full size beauty products and two sample coffee baggie things. Memebox claims that this box contains items that "every working woman absolutely need to keep at the office". I guess it's a personal preference thing, but I keep non of these at my desk and I only like three of the items from this box. Sorry if I sound as if I am complaining... I don't want to be a downer, I love Memebox and I have always loved their surprises; like I said I only bought this for the toner so there's nothing to complaint about.
Price per box: $29.00

Office Essential Box
1. Hope Girl 140 Super Lash Mascara 11ml ($22)
This Hope Girl 140 Superlash Mascara will give you the lengthiest lashes you've ever had. The lash application tip uses precision bristles to lift, define, and curl even your tiniest lashes. With a glossy, jet-black, long-wearing formula, you'll flaunt luxurious, silky lashes that won't smudge, clump, or dry out, so that you can finish off bold, career woman look!
How to use:
Hold wand vertically and stroke upward to curl and separate for sexy, stiletto lashes.
I am not a mascara person, I may seem like I wear a lot of makeup on my blog, but I can tell you, that is all for fun. In real life, I wear as minimal makeup as I could to work, I don't do my brows and I don't bother with eye-makeup. So whenever I receive a mascara in these subscription boxes, I kind of just gives them away, as I have no use for them. For mascaras, I have tried both high-ends and drugstore brands and I find that only Maybelline's Falsies range works for my super straight down pointing shorty lashes... :( sad right?! Hahah ~ Anyway, I have heard great things about the Hope Girl brand ^^ wish they had sent me a lipstick instead.
2. Very Six 6 Seconds Kissing Lipgloss 10ml ($17)
This is for all the lipgloss junkies! Infused with Propolis, honey and jojoba seed oil, this lipgloss moisturizes and hydrates chapped lips for a smooth kisser, while bringing a natural flush of color for a healthy glow. It is a necessity for you office ladies that work in a dry office environment, because chapped lips are never office appropriate!
How to use:
Wear alone for an ultra-reflective, high-shien finish without stickiness, or apply over or under your favourite lip products.
I have received the exact same gloss from my previous Memebox, the All About Lips box which you can read my thoughts here. I have tried this and I don't like it >.< mainly because the scent is too strong! I love jasmine and I am a fan of flora scent, but this one is just way too strong for my liking, I couldn't wait to remove the gloss, clean my lips as soon as I tried it.
3. Pure Smile Refresh Tissue Citrus Punch 2ea ($3)
These handy refreshing tissues are a neccesity for busy girls on the go. Use it whenever you need to refresh yourself on sweaty, hot days, or use to clean up any messy spills! With its invigorating citrusy scent and cooling ingredients, it will leave your skin dry and cool with only one use.
How to use:
Gently wipe the tissue onto skin for instant refreshment!
I haven't tried this yet but I have a feeling I gonna love this so much, will probably turn manic when they all gone hahha. I love the PureSmile brand, their stuff are so amazing ~ Remember those Choosy lip masks that I often rave about?! It's from the same brand!
4. Label Young Shocking Toner 250ml ($28)
This amazingly gentle yet effective toner combines a toner, a lotion and an essence all in one smart product. Containing no alcohol or other stimulating ingredients, this multi toner will re-hydrate your skin from deep within and help maintain the moisture/oil balance of your skin.
How to use:
Use it as a multi skincare product or mix it in with a BB cream or a foundation to feature a radiant and glowing complexion.
This Shocking Toner is the main reason I purchased this box, even thou I already know most of the items from this box I won't use or like; but it doesn't matter, I want this SO bad! It was like a do-or-die situation hahaha well, not that serious, you get what I mean ~ First time I came across this toner was in the Memebox online store, I wanted it so bad but shipping was a no-no, since these subscription boxes shipping are so cheap, you'd think they would offer the same shipping service for their online shops too?! NO, lol if you purchase products from Memebox's online store, they charge the shipping price separately and it is like twice as expensive. So anyway, I had a look on eBay and hardly anyone sells them... then I kind of left it there, I have forgot about it until I saw one of my Instagram followers posted an unboxing of the Office Essentials Box.
I have use the Shocking Toner yet, trying to finish all my other toner first. Plus I really like it brand new, un-used, it's sooo pretty with the bubbly purple gel in the jar. I love that it smells like grapes ^^.
5. RiveCowe Sebum Control Convenient Compact 8g ($14)
Touch up anytime with this Sebum Control Convenient Compact, specially designed to mattify oily skin and control oil slicks throughout the day. This compact instantly mattifies with results that last for up to 8 hours, revealing a natural, flawless complexion with zero shine all day long. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and blemishes and gives you a perfectly smooth complexion.
How to use:
Lightly tap puff onto the compact. Apply over the entire face for a matte finish.
I have oily skin and I took forever looking for the right powder to set my foundation, I have foundation found my perfect one so I don't need another. Will be giving this away ~ Oh just in-case you're wondering ^^ I use Guerlain Meterorites pressed powder and sometimes MAC Blot Powder to keep my makeup long-lasting.
6. Lovey Dovey Perfume Fabric Mist 60ml ($5)
These herb infused fabric mists will surely lift your spirits! Light enough to spray all over clothes and body for a just-laundried scent, it is ideal for instantly refreshing your mind and body!
How to use:

Who use fabric mist?! Don't we all use perfume these days?!
7. Maxim Maxim Mocha Gold 2ea - Full size product 420ml ($21)
Maxim's Mocha Gold instant coffee is just what you need before your morning business meetings. Richly brewed and sweet to taste, this coffee will make you eager to have your next cup!
How to use:
For hot coffee, prepare a cup of hot water. Pour in the contents and stir until all the contents have melted into the water. For iced coffee, fill your cup a third of the way with hot water. Stir in the contents. Add 5 to 6 ice cubes, and stir.
Love the Maxim Mocha Gold instant coffee! I drank them both as soon as I received the Office Essentials Box :) I am a coffee drinker hehehe and I would definitely purchase full price if I come across it again.
As I said before I choose to try this box cause I wanted the Shocking Toner, I love the packaging and I must have it LOL, I may not like any other items in this box but I am very impressed with the toner, it just looks as amazing as it's promo pictures online. I also ready enjoyed the two instant coffee strips which I have plan on buying the full size in the future.
