Another month, another Memebox. This time there are actually two Memeboxes (oops!). Both boxes are superboxes, which means they contain full sized products (get in). The first box is called Free from oil & trouble and the second one is a Halloween special. Now I shall warn you – this will be a mixed review. And I’m saying this with heavy heart, believe me.
FREE FROM OIL & TROUBLE
This Memebox is absolutely awesome, and although I don’t particularly suffer from oily skin, all products in the box are right up my alley and I’m able to make good use out of them!
⇢ insobeau Acnic Blemish Spot Solution: I haven’t tried this product yet, but by the looks of it it could well be a dupe for the Origins spot treatment. It comes in a tiny bottle which contains a liquid and a pink powder. These two layers mix together however when you’re applying it on a spot you should let it sit for a minute or two until the layers separate and then dip a cotton bud into the bottle and apply that way. As strange as it sounds, this treatment contains a lot of oils and reduces redness, treats inflammation and prevents further infections.
⇢ Pro You Aroma AC Cream: The formula of this face cream consists of ingredients such as green tea and grapefruit extracts, juniper berry, lavender and tea tree. It smells absolutely lush and so far I think it might be very similar to the new Liz Earle release which I will be reviewing very soon.
⇢ The Skin House Dr Clear Magic Toner: Anything in a spray mist form is a winner, and so is this magic toner. Who can be arsed with applying a toner with a cotton pad, right?
⇢ Benenet Herb & Bee AC Control Serum: The freaky bee venom product, yes. Apart from 5 different kinds of herbal extracts, this serum also consist of bee venom which is apparently 75% protein and has therefore proved to be causing rather miraculous results when applied on our skin.
⇢ Lindsay Linzy Egg Pack: I’m not gonna lie, this product made me giggle. It comes in an actual egg carton and the two cleansers look like real eggs. They even feel like real eggs, just a tad greasier on the surface. In fact these two eggs are a cleanser kit for your skin, serious! I can’t wait to use these!
⇢ ideeB Goodbye Oil Pact: Apparently this translucent powder is a dupe for the Make Up Forever HD powder, whuuut! Can’t wait to give this one a go, too.
Now the disappointing one – the Halloween Special box. I know, I know, seasonally themed things only rarely turn out to be cool, but it just looked so interesting. Erm, nope. The box is not horrible, oh no, it’s just a bit meh. Look at the contents.
⇢ Revecen White Foundation: This is one of the more exciting products in the box – I’ll save it for next Halloween to use for maybe a fawn make-up?
⇢ Revecen Cake Eye Liner in Black: Erm, this is erm, black eye liner. In the most unexciting form possible.
⇢ Revecen Supra Lining Colour in Purple: And a purple eye liner which looks exactly the same like the black one.
⇢ Revecen Eye Lashes: These are cool, but well, not particularly exciting shape or form.
⇢ Revecen Liquid Lipstick Blood: My favourite product from the whole box – this lipstick is fab – it literally looks like blood! Although it doesn’t stay on your lips for very long and can go bleeding everywhere (ironic or what), it looks so stunning on – very very glossy and the colour is spot on for autumn!
⇢ Elizavecca Lip Tattoo: Just no. NO.
⇢ Lalanc Temporary Tattoo set: These are crosses for God’s sake. Crosses. No. No. No.
To be honest, this is the very first box which has caused somewhat disappointment to me, which in all fairness is not too bad considering how many boxes have been beyond awesome (eg the one above!). Guess I’ll just forgive you, Memebox!
