Unboxing: Memebox lucky box #9


 After the ongoing memebox chaos and their crazy non talking customer service department for a couple weeks now, my lucky box 9 finally came to me :'(.  What is going on with the customer service guys! Why are you not replying anyone.

On the brighter note, I have a unboxing for memebox for you guys again.  Lucky box was the first memebox I have ever gotten and was one of the first three memeboxes I purchased so it has a special meaning to me.  If you want to check out my first lucky box, click here.  Also make sure to check out my side bar, I always have my whole list of past and upcoming memeboxes I ordered with the links of my past unboxings!

There are tons of memebox products that I am selling, most are brand new and others just lightly swatched with a Q tip for the blog ;).

Although lucky box 9 is currently sold out, here is the link JUST in case it restocks again.

If you don't want to be waiting for this box, you can always get its sister, Lucky box 10.

If you are confused from all the different memeboxes, make sure to check out my full breakdown.
 Okay enough with the chit chat! Let's get started.

As always, coupon codes will be on the bottom.  New September codes are still not out yet but I will post them right when i get them so don't worry!  As for now, there will be the standard coupons to use.

 Here is the close up of the box.

Omg that is such a cute mask! It has Ariel on it! I wonder if they will make more princess themed boxes.  The three they had are more based on skincare, sleeping skincare products and hair products.  I want to see them do something like Ariel, with quirky "human products", sea products, and colored hair treatments or something.  Now that would be an amazing memebox!  Yes memebox, you can steal my idea. Just make sure to send me the box after ;). *Wink wink*.

And no, all the boxes I un-box here, I bought with my own money.  So I don't feel back to bash the products if I don't like it keke.  That's how I do!

 The usual information card.
 This box got 4 full sized products and two samples.  Sorry I don't count one mask as a full sized product.
 Mug shot line up!
 The first product is The skin House Pore control powder serum retailing for $28 and contains 50 mL.  This is a full sized product and was featured in Pore care edition 3.  This product comes in a glass jar and measures 4 cm diameter x 10 cm. Smell-o-scale= 7.5/10 and it has a slight floral, hint of kinda clinical skincare scent.  I really don't know how to describe it properly.

Honestly at first when I saw this box spoiler on instagram, I thought to myself...Aw man I got another dud box.  But you know, the more I read into the actually products, I actually find them quite interesting!  This product I don't think it is for me according to the description, but would definitely be something that would help my boyfriend's skin a lot!

I don't really understand how it is "powder serum"?!? What does that mean?  I don't see any powder inside the serum.

Product description:
This pore control powder serum work to immediately tighten and minimize enlarged pores for a smooth and matte skin texture.  It also prevent skin's oil/ moisture imbalance by maintaining it silky soft.

How to use: 
Apply a small amount of the serum on your hands for full absorbency.
 Here is the ingredients in English!  Wow most of the products looks like it is very natural :O.  Nice!
 Sorry but I'm not going to swatch this since I don't know if I should keep it or not.  But if I do end up using it or giving it to my boyfriend to use, I will for sure do a review on it!
 The second product is ibelivyu Powder wash vitamin face cleanser retailing for $24 and contains 70 g.  This is a full sized product and was featured in Superbox #42 Birthday.  This product comes in a frosted glass bottle that reminds me of a science experiment haha.  It measures 3 cm in diameter x 17 cm.

This product is super cool! I thought it was a bath product so i wasn't that interested, but now that I know it is a cleanser, there are hearts in my eyes.  The few things that i will never get tired of getting is cleansers, BB creams, moisturizers and sheet masks.  Those are definitely my weakness.

Product description:
This refreshing powder-type facial cleanser works as vitamin parts burst onto your skin, with granol particles and papaine enzymes softly yet thoroughly rubbing away all skin residues and impurities.  Best of macademia and olive oil are also included and deliver protection and deep hydration to the skin.

How to use:
Take out a dime-sized amount of the powder wash, wet it and lather it well.  Gently massage your face clean and rinse off.
 I have never tried a powdered cleanser in my life so this will be exciting to try!  As you can see, there are little red particules in the powder along with the white powder.  Not going to open this yet since I have other cleansers to go through but I'm excited :).
The third product I got here is Bocians cycle repair whitening spot retailing for $24 and contains 15 mL.  This is a full sized product and was featured in fermented cosmetics 2.  The product comes in a plastic squeeze tube and measures 1.5 cm x 14 cm.

This product looked super familiar and I thought it was the same thing but it is not.  I got something from the same brand in my Skincare box, if you would like to check it out, click here!

This product would be great for me right now since I have slight brown spots from always forgetting to wear sunscreen this summer.  Yes I know, I can hear your screams all the way here.  Hey I'm lazy okay, and most of the time I am indoors.  That's my excuse, but I pledge to remember to wear sunscreen. Please don't hurt me :'(.

Product description:
This whitening spot cream is enriched with various fermented extracts and hyaluronic acids which hydrate deep into the skin and improve the skin elasticity.  The naturally-derived, moisturizing formula also nourishes the skin, giving it a healthier glow from within.

How to use:
Apply a small amount on spots with fine lines and wrinkles.

Wait is the how to use description right?.........I thought it was for whitening spots.  What on earth.
Same traditional squeeze tube tip.
The fourth product is Recipe by nature spray essence water retailing for $35 and contains 140 mL.  This is a full sized product and was featured in Memebox global #1.  Smell-o-scale= 4/10 and it smells very herbally and very light.

I absolutely love essence waters.  I used to use Mac Fix+ to use after I did my make up but after that has ran out, I never ended up getting it again.  Not because I didn't like it, but the price is just too ridiculous for me to justify.  So I bought the urban decay setting spray when sephora had their VIB 20% off sale.  So this is definitely a nice product to add to my "spray" collection.

Product description:
Spray essence water is enriched with celtic water and whistler (wait Canada? :O  WHOOOOO where I live :D) glacial mineral water; the main ingredients with nourishing vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids used to enhance the skin.  This essence will hydrate and nourish your skin instantly after application!

How to use:
Spray on all over the face after cleansing the skin.
Super cute but simplistic packaging.  I love it :D.
If you look closely, there is actually little separation inside the bottle.  It is some type of oil but I don't know which ingredient it is.  Either way, I am super excited to use this :).  Let me know if you have tried this, or any of the products from this box! I would love to hear your guy's opinion.
The second to last product is Awesome aqua whip hug foam cleanser and aqua power gel cream foil samples.  The full sized product retails for $22 for 120 mL (aqua whip hug foam cleanser) and $34 50 mL (Aqua power gel cream).  I can't calculate how much the samples would be because  I don't know how much is in there.  Sorry guys!

When I saw this picture, I actually thought the product was missing and started to freak out! Memebox customer service is non-existent right now so I wouldn't want to have to deal with it.  But silly old, it is actually just the four little foil packets.  I'm glad to see something to go along with the Awesome aqua whipped hug foam cleanser I got in my cooling care box which I have yet to try.  If this box came with the full sized moisturizer, that would be stinkin awesome and this box a definite 5/5 stars!

Product description:
Both the Foam cleanser and the gel cream are made from the Canadian glaciers extremely pure and rich in its minerals.  The fine, soft, whip cream- like bubbles created from the cleanser are very gently and effective in penetrating deep into your pores, while the Aqua power gel cream delivers the ultimate oil-free, moisture surge deep into your skin, hydrating it from within instead of the outer surface.

How to use:
Lather the cleanser with your hands and massage the foam onto your face.  Rinse off with warm water.  Apply the cream generously over your face at the last stage of your skincare routine.
Okay that random hair on the card is bothering me! ARGH.  I didn't notice that until when I was editing the photo.  Sigh.  Please excuse my dog's hair.  It has infested my room.
The last product is Y.E.T Don't worry sheet mask retailing for $1 each and contains 23 mL.  It was randomly selected from 01 Firefighting mask, 02 Bee my love mask, 03 snow white mask, 04 pre-make up mask, 05 detective mask, 06 heart beating mask, 07 infant mask, 08 mermaid mask, 09 police mask, 10 hammer time mask.  Haha the mask has such cute names XD. Of course I got the mermaid mask.

I didn't use to have any interest in sheet mask but i found that it cools my skin down and that is definitely a good thing!  Makes my skin slow down in the aging department and moisturizes my skin.  So I'm definitely looking forward in trying these!

Product description:
Y.E.T offers a variety of 10 different masks, each catered to specific beauty concerns such as soothing, whitening, moisturizing, pore care, winkle care, and oil control.  Again, each mask pack is enriched with natural ingredients like aloe, green tea, lemon, cucumber, cacao, and honey to target specific beauty concerns.

My specific mask, the 08 mermaid mask, contains hyaluronic acid, argan tree kernel oil, and green tea extracts.  It is suppose to moisturize and create "hydrated and flexible skin", whatever that minds.

How to use:
Place the mask over your face and rest for 15-20 minutes.  Remove and pat in the remaining mask essence onto your skin.

Overall I am actually pleasantly surprised that I like this box more then what i thought I would.  My first thought of this box when i saw the spoilers on Instagram was, aww many not another dud box!  But after reading more into the products, there are actually three products i'm super interested in trying, and the other three is products I will use when I get around to.  The most excited product for me is Recipe by nature spray essence water since there is quite a strong hype and many like this product.  This box, I will give it a 4/5 stars even though it wasn't as jam packed as my first lucky box.  We did get four full sized products!
