I was sooo excited when I saw Memebox had came out with a cafe box, I knew it would happen one day ;) and I knew they would include the Tony Moly Latte scrub that I have recently done a review and raved about! Shipping time for Memebox usually takes no longer than eight business days to arrive, but this time it took more than twenty days! I was seriously panicking LOL~ It must be the Christmas season...
Memebox Cafe Box contains six full size products, and as usual, I will un-box and write a first impression / initial thoughts on each product ~
Cleomee Anti-Wrinkle Donkey Lotion
Product Description: Cleomee's gentle and moisturizing formula consisting of donkey milk, hyaluronic acid, ceramide, glycerin, vitamin E and EGF complex delivers rich nutrition and replenishment deep down into your skin. Donkey milk and its milky goodness far exceeds cow's milk and even goat's milk in its similarity to mother's breast milk, and is also highly prized to have been the secret to Cleopatra's unfailing beauty and skincare.
How to Use: Apply the Anti-Wrinkle Donkey Lotion adequately over your face and body.
Initial Thoughts: Donkey milk??? LOL I have never come across any beauty products that's got donkey milk in it, I have tried many products with goat's milk thou. This lotion is very soft and smells great! I end up giving my mom the bottle, since I am already using LUSH Celebrate (current fav body lotion!) and mom ran out of hers ~
Vella Fresh Creamy Soap
Product Description: This whip cream textured cleanser is enriched with deeply hydrating and soothing formula: donkey milk, 3 kinds of honey complex and 4 kinds of floral extracts. Its highly concentrated and minutely fine creamy bubble thoroughly cleanse away all skin impurities and excess sebum while making sure to soothe, protect and moisturize the skin so that its pH balance isn't broken during cleansing.
How to Use: Use your palms or a bubble net to lather the Fresh Creamy Soap. Without getting your palms to touch the skin, gently massage just the creamy bubbles onto your face. Rinse off with warm water.
Initial Thoughts: Think of... cream cheese on your face, that's exactly what this soap looks and feels like! So far I am loving this soap, I love its creaminess and I feel like it really does the whole deep cleanse well. The downside is (this may be a positive thing for others), after washing my face with this soap, my face would feel so SO clean and oil free and it doesn't give you that smooth feeling... The result came out as how a body soap would perform on your body after shower, it feels dry.
Tonymoly Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-In Scrub
Product Description: Enriched with milk protein, caffeine, coffee extracts and acetyl hexapeptide-8, the Latte Art Cappuccino Cream-In Scrub is a massaging-type facial scrub that works to effectively remove all skin impurities clogging up the pores, deliver rich nutrition, and firm up the skin elasticity all in one. This product especially recommended for rough, darkened skin conditions suffering from dryness and white flakes.
How to Use: Spread out the scrub evenly over your un-wet face, massage it gently for 3~5 minutes and rinse off with warm wter when the color of the scrub changes from brown to white. Most suitable to be used twice a week.
Initial Thoughts: I absolutely adore this facial scrub and I knew Memebox would throw this in the Cafe Box ;) so I didn't purchase another one when my old one ran out. This is one of those items that I would happily re-purchase when it runs out, or buy a couple at a time for back-ups. The Tonymoly Latte Art Capuccino Cream-In Scrub smells JUST LIKE COFFEE!!! I love the little mug it comes packaged in and also this scrub made my face feels very smooth ~ Click here to read my review.
Product Description: The Herb Mask Sheet is infused with lavender extracts, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, and collagen, and works to relieve and moisturize the skin, while the Green Tea Mask Sheet contains abundant green tea extracts for maintaining the skin's moisture / oil balance and its firmness.
How to Use: Place the mask sheet evenly over your face. Rest for 15~20 minutes, remove and pat in the remaining mask essence for full absorbance.
Initial Thoughts: Mask sheet is randomly selected from Herb and Green Tea ~ Pure Smile is one of my favourite skin care brands, I am a huge fan of their lip masks and I have recently tried their lip scrub, which I am totally in love with! So glad Memebox has given me a Green Tea Mask Sheet to try ^^, the mask sheet made my face feels very fresh and smooth the next day (I did it just before bed), it's a very cooling mask and it sticks to my face properly! Unlike some other facial masks that enjoys peeling off by themselves. At $1 per mask, I think it's totally worth a try ~ Hoping Ippondo sells these, so I can try the Herb one as well.
Binu Cook Ice Cream Scoop Cacao Body Soap
Product Description: Shaped and smells like a scoop of delicious chocolate ice cream, this 100% natural, hand-made soap bar will cleanse away all excess oil, sebum, and dead skin cells from your face and body, and leaves the skin feeling nice and supple.
How to Use: Wash your skin with warm water to open up the pores. Lather enough foams with your hands and massage it gently over your skin. Rinse off with warm water and double rinse with cold water to tighten back enlarged pores.
Initial Thoughts: Facial / body soap + Kay = Not friends and can NEVER BE FRIENDS! I don't know what is it with body soap, I have purchased several from Lush and a few normal ones from the supermarket in the past, I end up throwing them all in the bin after a few uses; such a waste I know =.= I guess I dislike how body soaps made my skin feels very dry and those that claims to aid enlarge pores never seems to work! I have turned this cute chocolate ice cream soap into a hand wash instead and I love it! It smells just like chocolate ice cream, it made bubbles / foams and it's drips brown water lol.
Holika Holika Dessert Time Lip Balm
Product Description: We've selected 3 most popular cupcakes from Holika Holika's adorably packaged Dessert Time Lip Balm series. The strawberry scented 01 Red Cupcake has a translucent red colored texture and offers a glossy radiance to your lips. The tinted 03 Peach Cupcake is scented with a delicate peach fragrance and features peach colored, unjaded lips with a lasting color formation. Last but not least, the newly launched 05 Plum Pink boosts a refreshingly fruity cherry scent and a pop plum-pink colored tint.
How to Use: Spread the lip balm from the center towards the outer contours of your lips.
Initial Thoughts: I have been wanting one of these Holika Holika cupcake lip balms for a long time, mainly for its cute packaging; but I could not make up from all the cute flavours, so it's been saved to my watchlist waiting for me to make up my mind. I am so glad Memebox has throw in the Peach Cupcake for me ^^ ~ It smells more like lychee than peach, still love it! & it doesn't have that fake plastic lip balmy smell, totally impressed! Peach Cupcake looks peachy in the packaging, but it's actually clear when apply on the lips, it's very moisturzing and smooth.
Overall Thoughts: I love that Memebox can always read my mind and they know what things I like, I dislike and what are my favourite scents.... LOL I wish! I guess I am pretty lucky they have given me mostly the flavours I love. Overall I love the cafe box, I have really enjoyed using most of the stuff from this box.
