All the Chocolate, none of the calories!

Just got back from vacation, and boy do I have some catching up to do, review wise. I have two Julep boxes and a billion memeboxes waiting for review.

Just let's dig into Memebox  Special 11 Cacao.

This box is a little different from the other memeboxes I've gotten. Instead of all pink, it's pink and black. I like it, it's a bit more sophisticated than the others.

Opening the box, I was extremely happy about the jammed packed box of chocolate smelling goodness. You could smell the chocolate wafting up!

Here's what Memebox says~

"Whoever said chocolate is bad for you? Your skin we mean!

In the ancient world, Cacao was regarded as the Food of the Gods due to the many beauty benefits it offered for both the skin and health. With its high antioxidant content, raw cacao is guaranteed to make your skin appear dramatically healthier as it locks in nutrients and collagen within the skin, while also removing any excess oil and impurities from the pores.

So, don't look for your chocolate fix from candy bars - pamper your skin instead with the Cacao Box!"

The front side of the instructional card! 

The back side of the instructional card!

The included card lists the product, description and usage, all in English. That is extremely helpful as the products themselves are all in Korean.

1. Etude House Milk Talk (200ml/$7)

My first duplicate! I ordered this not too long ago from a different website, because chocolate milk body wash sounds like the most amazing thing in the world.  This can also be used as a bubble bath.

2. WondeRuci Cacao Brightening Mask (100g/$38)

This is the strongest source of the chocolately, chocolately good smellingness. It smells like fudgey chocolatey brownies. YUM! This mask cleanses dirt and impurities from pores, as well moisturize and brighten.

It looks so much like real fudge, just looking at it makes me want to eat it with a spoon.  

3. Pure Smile Essence Mask Chocolate Milk ($1)

Pure Smile must be the Memebox sponsor! This is a sheet mask that claims to give you a baby face by hydrating and smoothing. Plus, it smells like chocolate milk!

4. Evas Vitamin Cleansing Dessert Magic Cream Soap Coconut & Cacao (130g/$18)

Mounds bars are delicious, so I can only imagine this coconut and cacao cleanser will too! It's a gentle cleanser that deep cleans pores.

Plus, look at how cute the packaging is!

There are other varieties, I would like to try them all!

Gotta collect them all!

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

This scrub looks a little creamy, so I'm not sure how effective it will be as a scrub. But even if it's just a chocolate lip balm, I find nothing wrong with that combination!

6. Purederm Nose Pore Strips Choco Cacao (6 strips/$6)

It's one of my guilty pleasures to look at pore strips to see what all nasty gunk came out of my nose. I would use a microscope to look if I could. So yes, these chocolately ones will definitely get use!

This box costs $23 plus shipping, with a value of $81. I am extremely happy with this box, my favorite by far! I'm a chocoholic. 

This box is sold out, but there are many other options for you!

If you thought my review of the first Whole Grain box looked good, you should grab this second edition! I already grabbed this one. Plus, you will get 2 memepoints to use to get $2 off a future purchase when you buy this box.

Korean skincare is said to be 10 years of ahead of the US's, so their anti-aging box is a treasure trove of products to turn back the clock.

This box will give you 5!! memepoints, which will be $5 off a future order.

I have been waffling on this box for a bit now. And now, it is only available through this link! It is sold out for regular customers on the main website. Let me know if someone gets it! ENABLE MEEEE
