I don't work, but I got this box anyway...

I don't really get why they put a Toner inside the box, since most people would have put on makeup already before heading to work, so a skincare product (especially one that needs to be applied with a spatula = so troublesome!) would be kind of useless (unless it was a face mist). I would've hoped for a dry shampoo (maybe?) to deal with the oily hair throughout the day instead!

Overall, this was an okay box, but definitely not my favourite one!

I'm into my 8th month of pregnancy, and I love snacking! With my growing belly, I'm quite lazy to always go out to look for yummy snacks, so the FoodHappy Boxes saved me a lot of time and trouble! FoodHappy are a snacks subscription box that is based in Hong Kong, and they gather snacks from all over the world, pack them into a box, and deliver it to you weekly or fortnightly! The best thing about them is that there are no additional shipping costs! They ship every Monday, and I received them the next day! The only thing I don't like about them is that they don't send by registered mail, so I have to always collect my box from my building security office, as the box is too large to fit into our letterbox! The snacks are so delicious, that I wish they gave me more!!!

Last week, I received the FoodHappy Box. I have finished all the food inside that box, and I would give it a rating of 7/10. I was able to rate the foods after tasting them, so that helps them decide what to send me next!

Today, I received the TasteWest Box.

These were the snacks I received (I did switch three items in my box), and so far, I've only tried the New York Fruit Toffees, and they are delicious!!! The only product that I was slightly disappointed with is the Brownie from Market O, since it's a Korean brand, and it's not a taste of the "West" at all!! Other than that, I'm quite excited to try all the other products!!!

For more information on what I received in my first FoodHappy Box, please see my previous post here.

FOODHAPPY BOX UNBOXING (with coupon code)

There aren't many subscription boxes which ship to Hong Kong, but FoodHappy does! FoodHappy is based in Hong Kong, and they gather snacks from all over the world, pack them into a box, and deliver it to you weekly or fortnightly! There are no additional shipping costs!!!

I was also quite surprised to see a handwritten note written to me!

Overall, I was quite satisfied with the products in the box - especially the surprise food!!! I opened the packet in the unboxing video, and before I had even finished uploading the video onto youtube, I had already finished the packet!! It was SO good that I really wanted more!!! I'm trying the Garlic Green Peas now, and they're surprisingly good too!!! :D

It would've been nice if they had included an information card (like the ones Memebox provides) which tell us the brand of the food so we know how to look for more if we really like the product!!

MEMEBOX - the best beauty box ever!

Memebox is a Korean online beauty store where specialists advise customers of the latest trends and the best beauty products to buy. Unlike other beauty boxes out there which are usually monthly subscription boxes, Memebox does not provide a monthly service, but instead, allows you to choose what you buy, and you can buy whenever you feel like it! The brands they include are not everyday brands that you see around, so it's good that I get to try new things all the time!! The boxes are also set at everyday prices, and the products inside are always worth more than what you paid for!!! They also ship to most countries around the world, including Hong Kong!

The types of boxes to choose from:

The original Memebox comes packed with 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples, carefully curated from Korea to give you the best experience and widest exposure to a range of products.

Superbox was inspired by the Memebox lovers, looking for full-sized products catered to specific needs. Each Superbox series comes with its own theme, designed to target particular concerns.
(click the following photos/links to get $3 off, in addition to the coupon code and sign up points)

 Luckyboxes were created to bring back the most popular items selected from previously sold-out Memeboxes, all combined in one wonderful collection.

Memebox Mini
These boxes are $15 including shipping, and you will get your hands on 3-6 beauty products (deluxe & pouch samples) from Korea.

All the products inside the Nakedbox are completely revealed, and they ship within 2-3 days after purchase.

All the products contained in the Memeboxes, Superboxes, and Luckyboxes, are sourced directly from Korea, including only the best-loved items thoughtfully curated by their cosmetic aficionados at Memebox.

Don't know which box to buy?
- If you are new to Memebox, the Luckybox would be perfect for you! I purchased the Luckybox #5 as my first box, and I have been addicted to Memebox ever since!!
- If you like trying new products as much as I do, the Memebox Globals are awesome, as they contain many deluxe samples (as well as a few full sized products), and you can try the products before deciding on whether to purchase the full size product! They also have a larger variety of products inside!
- Superboxes are all themed, so if you have a particular concern, these are for you! For me, I really liked the Pore Care Superboxes!
- If you don't like buying a box without knowing what's inside, you can go for the Nakedboxes - all the components are exposed!
- If you like trying out new products, but have a tight budget, then the Memebox Minis are for you!

There are many sales going on at the moment!!!

June's Promo Codes:
Free shipping on orders above $50 at the Memeshop (until Sunday 22 June, 2014): FREESHIP50
$5 off on orders over 3 Memeboxes: MEMEBUNDLE3
Create an account and earn your $10 reward points, which can be used as $10 on your first purchase!

There are Box Value Sets now too which come with a free upgrade to express shipping when you just pay for normal shipping!! :D
PLUS weekly sales at the items at the Memeshop (this week, it's the products from HOPE GIRL - they have such cute packaging!!)

What are you waiting for? Order yours now and get up to $28 off your first purchase (google for coupon codes and blog referrals)!!!

I absolutely love face masks, so as soon as the Mask Edition #3 came out, I had to buy it!! I am very impressed with this box, as it has a large variety of masks, and it didn't contain any wash-off masks (I already have plenty of those)! There were some that I really wanted to try before, but I never got around to buying them, so now I have a chance to try all I want!

Thank you for watching, and have a nice day!
If you have any questions, please comment below!


I was really excited today, because I received not only one, but TWO Memeboxes! This is my second Superbox on Pore Care (yes, we're that into pore care)! There were 6 full-sized products inside the box, and I'm really excited to use the products inside the box already!

Thank you for watching, and have a nice day!

My Hair Superbox arrived this morning, and although I wasn't too impressed by the size of the products inside (I understand that's how big the products get, but they're usually sold in packs of four or five, and not just one!), I think it's still a pretty good box for the price I paid, and I'm looking forward to using some of the products already!

Thank you for watching, and have a nice day!

We recently came across this product, and we absolutely fell in love with it...

It is a lightly-textured tea tree oil formulated with sensitive skin in mind. Made from 90% tea tree extract, LJH's Tea Tree Essence 90 clears, moisturises, and brightens troubled skin, targeting acne and delivering nutrients deeply for a hydrated, vibrant complexion. Key ingredients include sea buckthorn and centella asiatica, plants known to delay the skin maturation process and speed the healing of damaged tissue.
- copied from the Memebox website

Key Ingredients:
Tea tree oil, trehalose, sea buckthorn, and centella asiatica.
Free from parabens, mineral oils, artificial pigments, ethanol, artificial fragrances, and animal ingredients.
- copied from the Memebox website

How To Use:
After cleansing your face, apply the Essence all over your face, and pat gently.
Another way to apply it is to cut up a cotton pad into small pieces, drop some of the essence onto the cotton pad, and place onto the acne, and leave for 20-30 minutes. Remove cotton pads. (suggested method by MUT member Vvianc)
Continue with serum/ampoule, followed by eye cream and then moisturiser.

Hubby has very sensitive skin, so I have to be very careful when trying out any new products on his skin. Luckily, this essence did not cause him any breakouts, and it also helped improve his skin too! He also complimented that the essence felt very smooth on his face and he liked it a lot! Just after 2 nights of using this essence, I noticed that the pimples on his face were less red and less obvious, his face was more hydrated, and he had a brighter complexion! I was really impressed with the product, so I went to search for it...and unfortunately, they didn't seem to be selling in Hong Kong!

Unlike other tea tree oils, this essence has no tea tree scent at all, so you won't walk around smelling like tea tree oil!

Reduces the appearance of acne and dark spots
Brightens skin complexion
Hydrates and soothes troubled skin
Does not smell like tea tree oil
Very light and watery in texture
Absorbs very quickly into the skin
Feels very smooth on the skin

Slightly expensive - around USD25 per 50ml bottle

This is the 50ml bottle - comes in a matte glass bottle with a dropper.
 We had never heard of this brand beforehand, nor do they sell them here in Hong Kong. I received a deluxe sample (20ml) in my first Memebox - Luckybox #5, and I'm so glad I didn't give it away! The full-size product is 50ml, and I've already purchased 2 extra bottles of them from the website.

We really love this product, and it has become our Holy Grail Product for troubled skin!

Thank you for reading, and hope you found my review useful!

I received my fourth box from MEMEBOX...
These boxes cost USD23, and contain 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples, and vary from hair & body products, to skin care & cosmetics.

I was really satisfied with this box, and am already thinking of purchasing more Memebox Globals!!!

I will be posting a more detailed review on the items in this box later!

But for now, thank you for watching, and if you have any questions, please feel free to comment below! Have a nice day!!

Wednesday, 4 June 2014


Blackheads and enlarged pores are a major concern of my face (actually it's more of a concern on hubby's face, because since using the Clarisonic Mia2, I have had less blackheads stuck to my nose!), so I recently purchased the Memebox Superbox #13: Pore Care, so I'll be posting a lot on pore care from now on!!

One of the products I received in my Pore Care Superbox is the O'GCE Blackheads All Clear Nose Pack + Pore Tightener Full Set, retailing at a price of USD11 at the Memeshop. It is a two-step system that is designed to remove existing blackheads and whiteheads around your nose, as well as tightening up the pores to control oil product and prevent the formation of new blackheads and whiteheads.

I like how it's a two step product, so after opening up the pores and extracting the blackheads, it also comes with a serum to apply afterwards to help shrink the pores (other products on the market only come with the pore strip, but doesn't teach us how to shrink the pores afterwards!). But like other pore strips, it can be quite a painful experience when peeling off the strip off your nose!!

Inside The Box:

7 x Charcoal Pore Strip
7 x Pore Tightening Serum

How To Use:

Use on a cleansed face.
Wet nose. Remove the pore strip from the plastic film and stick onto your nose.
I wasn't very pleased when I applied the pore strip, as there were no slits in the strip unlike the ones from Bioré, and the strip had a very overwhelming charcoal/smokey smell!!!

Remove the pore strip after 10 minutes or until it becomes completely dry, starting from the ends. Yes, it was quite painful, but the results were quite good!!

Rinse your nose with lukewarm water, and apply the pore tightening serum. 

The pore tightening serum comes in a cute syringe-shaped packet, smells really nice of honey and the camellia flower, but it feels SUPER STICKY (even stickier than glue)!! After 5 minutes after application, the serum dried on my nose, and it even felt like dried glue on my face - considering how sticky it was and how it dried up on my nose, I actually thought they gave me glue instead of serum!!!
(Please note that the instructions on the Memebox Information Card stop here, but there is actually more to it!!!)

I really wanted to leave it like this, because the glue-like-serum tightened my pores, and my pores were no longer visible anymore, but it was so tight that it felt really uncomfortable on my nose, and it was so uncomfortable that I couldn't help peeling the "glue" off my nose...

It obviously didn't feel right, so I did my own research, and apparently, after 5-8 minutes after application, you are supposed to wash it off. If you leave it on for too long, your nose will become slightly red and irritated.
So, if I had followed the instructions on the Info Card, I would have had to sleep with the glue-like-serum on my nose ~ eww!!!


It was quite a good product, but I think I'd use the rest of the pack on hubby, as he has more blackheads on his nose that can be extracted easily using pore strips (he accepts this method more than using the blackhead extracting stick anyway)!! We would probably repurchase :)

Thank you for reading, and if you have any questions, feel free to comment below!
