I Knew You Were Trouble When You Showed Up, On My Skin

Acne, pimples, zits, comedones, blemishes, spots. In Asian skincare, they are referred to as troubles, which I think is the cutest, least disgusting way to talk about acne lol.

I am cursed with oily, acne prone skin, so when Memebox released their Free From Oil and Trouble Superbox, I jumped on it.

Memebox says:

The Inside!

 The helpful product list and instructions!

1. Skin 1004 Foam Foam Cleanser Morning & Night (90ml/2 bottles/$35)

These are two coordinating cleansers, one containing protective ingredients like argan seed oil and edelweiss extracts for a gentle cleansing in the morning and a stronger deep pore cleansing formula with lavender and lotus. These both are foam cleansers.  I've used different moisturizers for night and day, but I've never done two different cleansers for night and day. I'm intrigued by the concept.

2. Milky Dress Anti-Trouble Body Mist (80ml/$23)

Worth the entire cost of admission! What a clever product, a spray to help get troubles that pop up in the hard to reach areas! I tried the Murad version, and it was not effective, so I am really excited to try this.

3. Dermahouse Pore Tighten Ample (30ml/$22)

Ampoules are something not usually sold in the US markets. They are more concentrated versions of serums, with more of the active ingredient. They often have the higher price tag to match as well.  This goes on after your skincare routine to tighten large pores and treat and prevent dark spots.

 4. Yuri Pibu Parsley Herb Toner (150ml/$23)

This is a gentle moisturizing toner that is supposed to be used after cleansing night and day.

5. L'Ocean Pink Powder (20ml/$24)

Excuse the picture, my bottle was still mixed from transport. The fluid is supposed to be in two layers, a yellow layer on top and a pink layer on bottom. The top layer has BHA and AHA and the bottom layer contains calamine and volcanic ash. You stick a Q Tip into the solution and dab into the bottom layer. You then apply it to any blemishes and leave on overnight.  I have never tried a solution like this, but I hear they are very effective. FYI, do not shake!

6. Tosowoong Silk Touching Powder (10g/$34)

This a transparent powder that offers a soft silky texture that claims to last all day. The directions say to spritz onto fabric, clothes and anywhere else for an instantly refreshing feel, which I assume is misprint from a different item. I assume this is either a finishing powder or a priming powder, but if anyone knows better, let me know!!

The open compact!

This box costs $32 plus $6.99 shipping. The value is $161. The box is worth it to me just for the body mist. This box is currently sold out, but there are some new arrivals you can grab. These all give 3 memepoints, which you can use for $3 off a future purchase.

You can also get $5 off by using the code AFFILIATE-7599-IJMWD-YAEN.
