When my latest Memebox Korean beauty box arrived, my teenage daughter said I am going to steal all of this and really there is no finer compliment. Possibly we may have to arm wrestle for it because I want to use all this stuff too.
So, Memebox Cacao is a chocolate themed beauty box. You can tell why the teen wanted it. I think it’s nice that we can share this stuff, when we’re not fighting over whose turn it is with the Benedict Cumberbatch colouring in book.
- Etude House Milk Talk ($7)
This can be used as a chocolatey shower gel or bubble bath, so now is the time to realise that ambition to bathe in hot chocolate.
- Wonderuci Cacao Brightening Mask ($38 – currently on sale for $28 in the Memeshop)
This mask smells AMAZING, like chocolate fudge sauce for your face. Leaves skin lovely and clean, though the same cannot be said for towels. Looks a bit stupid on (see below).
- Pure Smile Essence Mask Chocolate Milk ($1)
This sheet mask contains the holy grail of skincare ingredients – collagen, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E. I only wish they had included more than just the one.
- Evas Vitamin Cleansing Dessert in Coconut & Cacao ($18)
Aside from the yummy scent, this is a really interesting sounding foam cleanser, where you have to roll the foams around your face. The only way I can deal with the boringness of cleansing twice a day is by having fun products like this to use. Plus check out the cute packaging, like a little cardboard dessert cart.
- Pure Smile Chosy Chocolat Lip Scrub ($11)
Not a particularly scrubby scrub alas, plus it stains your lips brown so it looks like you’ve been gumming a Galaxy bar.
- Purederm Choco Nose Pore – 6 strips ($6)
If there’s on thing that can make pulling all the gunk you never knew was there out of your nose pores less hideous, it’s chocolate.
Total value of box: $81 / £48 – I’ve had higher value Memeboxes but still not bad. Box RRP – $30 including shipping. I paid $16.99 / £10 because of discount codes and points so I think I got a good deal here.
The cacao box is now sold out, but other similar themed boxes currently on sale include: a Tea box; a fantastic-sounding Honey box and the weird and wacky OMG box which I have, of course, already ordered.
Are you a Memeboxer? What do you think of the Cacao box?
I bought this box with my own money.
