Unboxing: Memebox special #9 skincare

#9 Skincare

 Second unboxing today! I'm on a rollllllllllllll.  I didn't think I would get any memeboxs today but little did I know, two came today :).   Yes I have tons coming through the mail.
 Sneak peek ;).  I know you want to know what is inside!  

Also make sure to like me on facebook to see me on your new feed for the latest and fastest updates with this blog! I post my status of unboxings on there and other random nick nacks.

 As usual, here is the information card that always comes with it since I can't read Korean.  I wish i knew korean so i can go to korea and be awesssomeee and fat eating everything. Nom nom nom :).
 How it was packed in the cut hot pink box.
 Mug shot line up!
 So the first product is Narsarang Rose Balancing toner retailing for $58 and contains 50 mL.  This is a sample size containing 5 mL, retailing for $5.80 for the sample size.  The sample bottle is 1.5 cm in diameter and 4 cm in height.

I'm quite excited to try this out since it contains so many roses just to make this toner.  No wonder it isn't full size :O.  I can use the extra moisture!  By the way, this is the same brand as the BB cream from my herbal cosmetics box.

Product description:
"Nasarang's rose skincare series is renowned for its catch phrase, "high concentrate of the natural rose oil extracted from over 3 million Bulgarian Roses."  Some of you may questions how can 3 million roses possibly fit into a small bottle like that?  However, to make 1 g of top quality rose oil, you actually need more than 3000 g or organic roses.  This Rose Balancing toner is thicker in its texture as it glides onto the skin almost like an ampoule, deeply moisturizing and brightening up your overall absorbency."

How to use:
After cleansing, pump out 1-2 times and apply the toner on your face with your hands.  gently pat it in for a better absorbency.

Frangrance level has to be a good 8.5-9/10.  If you do not like roses or have an allergic reaction to roses, I suggest you not use this since it is heavy on the rose department.  It smells like pure roses ;).  I usually don't like roses but this smells nice.
 The second product is Verikos advanced tightening cream retailing for $36 for 75 mL.  This is a sample size containing 4 g which would come to $1.80.  Jar measurements are 2.5 cm in diameter and 2 cm in height.

Product description:
"Highly enriched with lotus flower water, collagen, bifida ferments, and peptide components, the Advanced power tightening cream works not only to hydrate and nourish the skin but also to fight signs of aging and improve your skin's natural elasticity and glow."

How to use:
Apply the cream at last stage of skincare routine.  Use the spatula to take a small amount of the cream and using your fingertips, spread it softly over your face.  Pat it in for better absorbency.
 What on earth is bifida O_O. LOL The cream is more of a gel and fragrance level= 5/10.  It smells quite lemony.
 The third product is Boscians cycle repair wrinkle spot retailing for $24 and contains 15 mL.  This is a full sized product.

Product description:
"This is a softly applying spot cream for treating lines and wrinkles on your face.  Packed with galatomyces, peony root extracts, and adenosine, it is gently on the skin yet very effective in filling in those fine lines.  It's especially recommended to be used around your eye bags because its anti-wrinkle formula's much stronger than any average eye creams!"

How to use:
Take a small amount and apply it on areas with fine wrinkles.  Pat it in for better absorbency.
 I don't know why but I thought this was an eye cream.  Maybe because I was yearning for an eye cream since I only got one and tried about three in my whole lifetime.  I do not detect any fragrance in this product, so I'll give it a 1/10.
 Texture wise, this cream is light texture and absorbs into the skin really fast.
 The fourth product is Benton snail bee high content essence retailing for $18 and contains 60 mL.  This is a full sized product.  The bottle is 3 cm in diameter and 12 cm in height.

Product description:
"Instead of water, this facial essence uses snail secretion filtrate, bee venom and EGF to cleanse your rough, damaged skin from external stresses and pollution.  In addition to the skin-trouble care, moisture supply and skin tone improvement functions, it also help brighten up your complexion and remove signs of aging."

How to use:
Apply the essence generously over your face and pat it in for full absorbency.
 This product is actually a product i was eyeing on the site since I have heard people loving this product.  Now I get to try it out :).  yey!
 The essence itself is translucent, soaks into the skin fast and fragrance wise, it is scentless.  1/10 on the scale.
 The fifth product is Dewytree tea tree porest powder in toner retailing for $26 for 200 mL and this is a full size product.  The bottle itself is 5 cm in diameter and 15 cm height wise.

Product description:
"This is highly moist facial toner enriched with green clay and tea tree leaf extracts for treating blemishes and other impurities clogging up and enlarging your pores.  It's secret formula lies in treating enlarged pores without dehydrating the skin."

How to use:
Shake the toner bottle well to get the powder and the liquid layers mixed up.  Wet a cotton pad with the toner and gently wipe it over your face moving from the inner towards the outer contours.  Leave the wet cotton pad over areas with excessively enlarged pores.
 I'm actually quite happy I got this! I don't have a toner that i use on a daily, just bioderma to get rid of hidden dirty and make up.  So this will be fun to try.  Hopefully it can help my blackhead on my annoying nose.
 The second to last product is Dewytree white dew 7 cut extreme serum retailing for $41 and contains 30 mL.  The bottle size dimension is 4 cm X 9 cm.

Product description:
"Free of parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, trithanolamine, benzophenone, syntetic dyes, and talc, this super gentle facial serum is most suitable for those troubling with excess freckles, dark spots, uneven skin tone and sagging skin.  It will work to soothe, tighten, and brighten up your skin for a silkier, healthier-looking complexion."

How to use:
Pump out 1 drop of the serum and apply it on areas with uneven skin tone and darkened spots.  Pat it in for full absorbency. 
 I really like the packaging that this bottle comes in. The sleek white bottle with the silver cap makes the product look very expensive, like a Lancome product or something.  The top is a push button to suck up the serum from the glass dropper.
 I always feel like a scientist using glass droppers haha.  Fragrance wise, this serum has got that clean, floral Korean skincare scent that a lot of Korean skincare products like to use.  Scale of 1-10, this is a 8/10.
 The serum is a thin texture and absorbs into the skin with no residue left behind.
 The last and final product is Secret key super plumping jelly cream retailing for $77 ( I believe it is a type since the website says $38) and contains 50 mL.  The glass jar is 5.5cm X 5cm.

Product description:
"A uniquely jelly-texture cream rich in extracts from world's top super foods- blueberry, orange, almond, broccoli, pumpkin, and salmon eggs- the Super plumping jelly cream aims to bring back your baby-face!  It will not only tree signs of aging and moisturize your face, but also work to plump up your face for a more naturally 3D look."

How to use:
Either at the first or the last stage of skincare routine, apply the jelly cream evenly over your face.  Gently roll your fingers onto the skin for massaging effects.  Apply another layer of the cream on areas under eye contours and along the smile crease.  You can also apply the cream on your neck for treating wrinkles and creases.
 I like the color of the jar and the fact it is glass :).  
The cream itself is so cool! It is just like jello and it jiggles like jello too :D. So awesome!

The fragrance level is 7/10 and it smells slightly like berries and a hint of floral.  I'm excited to try this product :D.

Overall I'm quite happy with this box. It was better then I anticipated it to be actually and there are four star products in this box (Benton snail bee high essence, toner, serum, plumping jelly).  I thought it might be a boring box with just the basics, but these throw me out of the water. I'd say out of all the boxes I have gotten, this would be placed a good third.  I would highly recommend this box. 
5 out of 5 stars :D
