Memebox #20 Superfood Unboxing

Superfood is a food considered to be nutrient rich and especially beneficial for health and well being.  It looks from what I can see there are at least 2 products that contain Broccoli.  I am stoked for this box. Broccoli is rich in antioxidants such as vitamins E and C.  Vitamin C stimulates collagen production and keeps your skin healthy.  It also promotes skin repair and regeneration.  This box is currently sold out, but they do re-stock boxes at weird times while your sleeping.  It is just pure luck if you are able to grab a re-stock. If you look closely to the picture you can already see 2 items from this box that include Broccoli!

Membox does provide a card with every box giving details of the items, values and a brief summary along with directions.

6 products all FULL SIZED!  Well let's get right to it!  Memebox is not your typical subscription Beauty Box as you can see.  The 1st item I was excited to see was the Toner as I am running really low on the one I am using now that I got from Fermeneted Cosmetics1 box!  I can not find the Grinif toner anywhere for a reasonable price.  The value of the Elmaju Broccoli Essence Toner 150ml is only $14.00, so I hope I love this one.  The description states that it contains 90% of Broccoli extract to provide instant hydration.  This product provides anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the skin immediately and prevents future flare ups. It claims to calm irritated skin after facial peels and skin procedures.  I can not wait to try this out!  If you are still wondering what a Memebox is take a look here.

An Aloe Soothing Vitamin Gel 50ml value of $19.00.  The one thing I do have to say is I LOVE the fact that all Korean products come sealed!

This product by The Skin House (which is a favorite brand of mine) I will start using this product right away. It has Aloe Vera Extracts, tomato extracts, and 6 different kinds of vitamins.  It will soothe, moisturize and protect dry, damaged skin, and help to brighten your complexion.  It has vitamin C Capsules that are 100% Vitamin C and help with the skin renewal and brightening.  

You apply the gel over red, dry, or irritated area on your face, and massage it until the Vitamin C capsules are all dissolved into the skin.

The item I was most excited to see in this box was the Secret nature From Jeju Peeling Gel 150ml which I had my eye on in the Memeshop.  The value of this product is $26.00 on the card.  It's written on the information card that this product is still available for sale at Memeshop.  I just looked and it's not there and I just got this box last week.  Anyways watch it be a product I love and have a hard time finding.  It is made from Volcanic clay, natural cellulose components, and pesticide-free jeju from Jeju Island yes no chemicals!!  

Secret nature's from JeJu Peeling gel is 97% pure, raw and directly derived from the nature as said on the card.  It's gentle formula will exfoliate any excess dead skin cells, and skin impurities, and work to purify and brighten your complexion.  You apply on face, massage, and rinse.  They say to use it 1-2 times a week.  I can't wait to see the amazing benefits this will have on my skin!

The next item was the spoiler Memebox released a few weeks ago.  The Ladykin Phytopian Broccoli Wrinkle Radiance Power Ampoule.  WHEW what a mouth full!  This is listed for $50.00 and is 50ml.  This item has Broccoli extracts to detoxify problematic skin and help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while Tumeric extract helps to improve skin radiance and tone.  Tumeric is one of my favorites to juice.  I hope its as amazing for my skin as it is for my body!  This can be purchased through Amazon here.

The directions suggest to apply and gently rub until it's absorbed.  Here is some information I found on Amazon.
  • Broccoli extract 75%- Containing not purified water but 75%of broccoli extract water, it helps to relieve the skin stress and provides vitamin, mineral, and moisture so that reduces itching from being dried.
  • Contains 18 kinds of vegetable extracts- it not only contains 5 kinds of superfood which are broccoli, Almond, Blueberry, autumn squash, and orange, but also has raspberry extract, Allantoin, Hyaluronic acid, Shea butter, etc in it, it helps the skin balance, resilience, and moisturizing. It also provides supple vitamin and nourishment, makes the skin vital and beautiful

  • Dual functional - Whitening and Anti-wrinkle effects
  • Free mild formula- Free paraben, Free sythentic pigment, free benzophenone, Free animal originated ingredient, Free mineral oil

Memebox always seems to include at least 1 mask in each box.  I live for those sheet masks now.  This one was from Pure Smile and is a Strawberry Milk Essence Mask 23ml.  Seeing as how I am vegan I will not use the milk product on my face and gave the mask to my girlfriend for her use.  The value is $1.00

So far it looks like they have stuck with the theme of a Superbox.  The mask is to be used after cleaning and using toner on your face.  You can leave it on for 15-20 minutes and then pat in remaining essence.  I think I am starting to get the hang of these sheet masks.

The final product is something I have plenty of.  The Red Ginseng Eye Wrinkle Solution Treatment 30ml valued at $6.00.  I think I will gift this one for Christmas or add it to my pile for a big giveaway.  It has 33% pure red ginseng extracts it works to fill in the fine lines and wrinkles along your eye contours,  I am so thankful to say I do not have this problem just yet.

In all this box definitely stayed with it's curated theme of a Superfood box.  I ordered this box on June 27th for pre-order.  I received it last week boy does Memebox make you sweat it out!  The cost of this box was $20.99 plus $6.99 for shipping.   I used a $15.00 off coupon code and paid $11.99 for this box.  The total value is $116.00.  Wow what a great deal!  

What did you think of the Superfood box?  Is it something you would order the next time they stocked this box? Please leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts.  

I will also be reviewing each product individually but will take some time to get through all the other ones I am using 1st.
