Hello lovers! This months Memebox was all about step-by-step skincare. Cutting out the complicated product after product regiment and keeping it basic.
"Fancy a bottle of mojito for your skin? This unique facial toner is formulated with all the ingredients found in a glass of mojito - lime, sugar cane, sparkling mineral water, apple and peppermint leaf juice! The lime complex will prevent skin impurities from dogging up the pores and the mineral-rich components will refresh and deliver abundant nutrients to dry, tired skin." You apply a toner after cleaning the skin, with a cotton ball/round. How adorable is this packaging?! I'll keep this bottle after I use this up! This smells good, a slight lime hint to it. I've found it slightly drying, but I haven't tried it out enough to say whether I've seen a difference in my skin or not. It's been super dry in general lately so I'll need to test it out more before I'd give a full review!
"An anti-aging facial essence made with a special idebenone formula for effectively treating fine lines & wrinkles as well as brightening up uneven and dulled complexion."
I've enjoyed this! I haven't used it enough to say whether I've seen a difference but it feels nice on the skin.
"A highly concentrated facial ampoule enriched with nutrition-rich royal jelly and royal honey extracts. It will soothe, moisturize, and strengthen skin's natural protective barrier."
Ampoules are basically small amounts of product packed full of amazing ingredients, or at least that's what they are supposed to be! Typically you'll find these in individual little packages that you'll open and use once a week.
This is slightly sticky but absorbs quickly into the skin, much faster than I had thought it would.
"A moisturizing water-drop type facial cream. This Rice Water Double Action is a smart, multi-functional cream for hydrating, tone brightening, and wrinkle refining. Its formula includes rice bran water, adenosine, cacao extracts, and various herbal ingredients."
This is an interesting product. The "water-drop type" description is spot-on. It's very lightweight in texture and when you rub it into the skin, it almost feels like it turns into water... Sort of. It's so hard to describe but definitely unique to anything I've ever tried before.
I've been loving this! My skin has been super dry so I need to try it more before I can say whether it's hydrating enough for dry skin or not but so far, so good.
"A mineral oil free sunscreen that works to color control uneven skin tone and to protect skin from UV exposure. It's extremely gentle and it leaves skin silky soft and smooth, with a healthy glow."
I haven't tried this product out yet. Living in Buffalo, my poor pale skin rarely sees the sun during this time of year so I'll keep this sealed until it gets warmer out! :)
"Enriched with propolis extracts, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and various fruit & nut extracts, this Special Care Mask helps replenish, repair, protect and soothe skin against dehydration and aging, for a much softer and more luminous complexion."
This is a sheet mask. I haven't tried it yet but these are always awesome to keep around the house! Whether for spa nights or when your skin is feeling really worn out and tired!
If any of these products are sold out, add them to your wishlist and Memebox will restock them!
