Memebox Milk!

Another memebox! This is the milk one, I purchased in a bundle with Whole Grains and Oriental Medicine. I figured milk does a body good ;)

The inside.
Here's how Memebox advertised this box.

"We all know milk is good for teeth and bones, but betcha didn’t know it’s also good for your skin!

Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, is a famous beauty icon who is known to have used milk as a secret ingredient for maintaining smooth, supple and radiant skin. Milk has healing properties that repairs sun damaged skin, prevents premature aging, and also provides abundant nutrients for a youthful look.

Now, we’re letting out this ancient beauty secret with our Milk Box to share with you all the skincare benefits that milk has to offer!"

The handy dandy what's in my box cards! With English instructions.

When I opened this box, I thought it smelled wonderful. The culprit is the first product listed.

1. Hello Everybody Bubble Steam Milk Bath (25g/$4)

This smells sooo good. I think it's the combination of almond oil and chamomile and vanilla. Can't wait to use it.  I've never used bath powder before, so I hope it's good and bubbly and pleasant smelling. The description claims it softens skin, but I look for more yummy, relaxing smells in my bath products than skin benefits, since I always lotion up afterwards. Am I alone in that?

2. Hello Everybody Nature Holic Body Lotion Milk (300ml/$25)

This is generous sized body lotion. The scent is a little lemon-citrusy (there's lemon balm in it) which is ok to me, but if you are sensitive to fragrance, I'd give it a skip. The lotion is very thin in it's consistency, and I do prefer a thicker formula.  The lotion is made from organic goats milk, and does leave skin soft and non-greasy. It absorbed fast as well. This was the weakest link in this box for me, but is something I will still use.

3. Pure Smile Choosy Lip Scrub (25g/$11)

I like lip scrubs, but I never remember to use them. I need to keep them out by the bed. I currently have a philosophy one that I feel like I've been using forever. So, needless to say, I haven't tried this. I am a little iffy, this came in either Chamomile Milk or Peach Milk. I got Chamomile Milk, so I'm a little hesitant about the taste.  This scrub contains sugar, milk, peach, chamomile and bees wax. If you've never used a lip scrub before, the process is simple. You roll a bit of scrub on dry lips to get the flakies off. Then you remove the dead skin with a warm towel or washcloth. It's recommended to apply a lip treatment or chapstick afterwards. It sounds painful, but it's really not, and I have a low low tolerance for pain.

4. Pure Smile Milk Mask Pack (23ml/$1)

 I love love sheet masks, I will never be able to get enough of them. In fact, I am kicking myself for not getting Memebox Mask Edition 4 :(  This is a Milk Essence Mask, with Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E. It's supposed to be moisturizing, anti-aging and smoothing for uneven skin texture. Sheet masks, for the uninitiated, are little paper masks from heaven, coated in a serum, that you place on your face from anywhere to 15 minutes to 30. 

5. Skin Ceramic Donkey Milk & Argan Oil Multi Steam Cream (100g/$34)

 This is the product I am most intrigued by. This is essential a face cream, but made from donkey's milk and argan oil. Memebox claims that donkey's milk is more nutritious than cow or goat milk. Now, I love me some goat milk, but I have never had anything made with donkey's milk. I'm a little curious, I might need to go on a Strange Foods expedition and try some donkey milk or donkey milk cheese.  Anyway, although this has the word steam in it, you just apply it as the last step in your skincare routine. It's supposed to be intensive hydrating, so my oily skin might need to wait till winter to try this. Btw, there is no smell, donkey or otherwise, from this cream.

6. Enesti Rice & Milk Foaming Cleanser (120ml/$15)

This a foam cleanser made with rice and milk, that's supposed to deep clean pores, moisturize and brighten. I always get a chuckle since I see many Asian skincare lines claiming to give you translucent skin. Like see through? Like one of those genetically modified goldfish? 


7. Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack Milk ($1)

Another lip patch! Going to save for when I need to fake Angelina Jolie lips.

So this memebox has a total value of $91, and cost me $23, plus I got 5 memepoints for it. It's currently sold out, but if you like to stalk to see if it would come back in stock. (Occasionally happens), here's the link.
