I am a self-proclaimed sweet tooth. Pancakes rank as one of my top meals (breakfast, lunch or dinner), we go through syrup like no one's business, and I always need something sweet to cap off a meal. It's pathetic. So I'm sure you can imagine my overwhelming delight to receive a Memebox totally devoted to chocolate, a sweet I also totally love.
Let me back up...you may be wondering what a Memebox is if you're new to the subscription beauty box world. Memebox (prononounced Mi-Mi Box), is the #1 beauty box provider in Korea - offering boxes full of awesome Korean cosmetic samples. They're not sent monthly, you order them individually, so you never have to receive box with unwanted products.
"If you’re a sucker for chocolatey treats like us, and want to see your everyday beauty products look, feel, or smell like real chocolate, this is the perfect box for you! Indulge yourself with all the benefits that chocolate has to offer without all the guilt and calories! Chocolate, known to be loaded with minerals and antioxidants, provides beauty benefits that will make you feel and look your best! I mean, who hasn’t felt loads better after biting down into a chunk of chocolate!" (via Memebox)
Here's the details of what's inside this chocolatey box:
Skinfood Cacao Hand Balm - This hand balm smells like cocoa butter and delivers deep moisture for dry hands. On the skin, it feels quite oily so if you don't like a hand balm that doesn't sink in right away, this might not be for you. I found it really nice as my hands are quite dry this time of year. It's a perfect hand balm to use before bed, which is how I plan to use it.
Neogen Code9 Gold Cacao Cream - This is my favorite product from the whole box. The Neogen Code9 Gold Cacao Cream is a facial butter for those with extra dry skin. This is a perfect cream for extremely dry winter skin. This cream has naturally derived ingredients of gold, cacao seed butter, mango seed butter, shea butter and olive oil, and are good for all skin types.
I don't have the driest skin, but I do need extra moisture in the winter, and this cream feels so luxurious. I use it only as a night cream and it has made my face feel soft and hydrated without breaking me out.
Missha Cacao & Cream Facial Scrub - This facial scrub is formulated with real cacao extracts to remove dead skin cells and congested pores without stripping the skin. It honestly smells and feels like you're exfoliating with a mixture of cookies and cream! This scrub has medium exfoliation, so if you have sensitive skin, you might find this to be a bit too rough. Personally, I prefer medium to rough exfoliators, and I really enjoy this scrub from Missha. Highly recommend.
dearberry Miss Mona Lisa Eyebrow 01 Choco Brownie - This dual-ended eyebrow pencil has a spoolie on one end to brush out the brows, and a pigmented pencil liner on the other. It has a no-smudge finish and long lasting hold. Unfortunately, this pencil is too dark for my brows so this will get passed on to a friend.
Binucook Cacao Choco Pie Soap - This soap smells divine, and just like chocolate - despite looking like a weird brown circle of soap. Apparently, Choco Pie is a well-loved Korean snack, however this version is meant for deep cleansing of the skin. It works to clean while still retaining the moisture and oil balance of your skin. It has a nice lather, and who doesn't like to wash their face with something that smells like dessert?!
Shara Shara Tempting Avacado Chocolate Massage Cream - This face cream is made of a blend of avocado oil, cacao extracts, and banana extracts. It's meant to nourish, firm and smooth rough, sagging skin. This product is unlike anything I've ever tried. You're supposed to massage it in to clean skin for 5 minutes before rinsing off. It felt like I was rubbing lotion all over my face, but aside from the weird factor, it made my skin feel really nice and soft. When you wash it off, it does suds a teeny bit, and it doesn't leave any residue behind. It's strangely nice.
Zamian Super Gold Cacao Pack - This product is a super decadent face mask, infused with a blend of 99.9% gold and cacao powders. Memebox says this product is a beauty formula widely enjoyed by royalty, as it is highly effective for smoothing, firming and nourishing the skin. This mask dries really quickly, but it doesn't make your face feel uncomfortably tight like so many masks do. It smells like chocolate and is really soothing on the skin.
Purederm Choco Cacao Collagen Mask - This is a facial pulp mask made from high concentrates of cacao and collagen extracts. It provides an instant moisture rush for the skin for extra elasticity and healthier complexion.
