My first Memebox, Luckybox #5, arrived today! You might be asking what Memebox is….

I’ve written about it here and also here. This box shipped out on May 21st, as I ordered it after it started shipping out, so I did get it a tad later than those who pre-ordered it. However, even with a Holiday weekend here in the states, I got it on May 31st, which is actually pretty damn good – Some retailers in the US take that long or longer to get to me!
Anyway, it is here!! It’s HERE!!
Hot pink thick plastic wrapping and a hot pink box inside. They’ve even bubble-wrapped the box to protect even further. I really appreciate that they are taking the care to ensure that this box gets to me undamaged by the elements!
Informational card description the contents of LuckyBox #5
I am going to do something a bit different than my other unboxings. As these products are unknown to me and perhaps even to my readers, I am posting a description of the product under my thoughts for every product. Normally, I just do a snippet or if it is a product that doesn’t really need a description, I won’t post it. But for the purposes of my Memeboxes, I will make sure I find the appropriate description, usage and ingredient list if I can find it. The descriptions will be from the webpage that is linked to the product name. Not all of these products are sold in the Memebox Shop, so I had to look for them on various sites.

LJH Tea Tree 90 Essence. As I still break out from hormonal acne, this is a very welcomed product in my home. I have used Tea Tree oil before, but not an “essence”.

Dear by Enprani Bounce Cheese Cream I am really exited to try this mosturizer out. It has been one of the top beauty bloggers raves for months now.

How to use: After the skin booster, at the cream stage, apply a moderate amount all over face gently.

You can see the “strings” in this cream. Once I rubbed it in, there was no tackiness and it absorbed quickly.

O & SoapBerry Bubble Cleanser At first I thought this was a body wash, but it is a facial cleanser. This is bubbly because of the carbonated water. I have never heard of soap berry before and according to wiki, these are shrubs and small trees that are part of the Lychee family and are also called soapnuts. I like soapnuts over soapberries myself, but to continue..these soapnuts have been used for centuries by those in Asia for washing. This has a nice pump and it has no smell other than a clean soapy scent! This is going in my shower now. Full size 100ml valued at $25.00 (although you can pick up a two-pack for $13.00 at Memebox Shop)

- (Brush is not included)

Overall, I am very happy with the arrival of my first Memebox. I knew that this box was going to have BB creams in it and I was okay with that because I can gift them or trade them. I am most excited to try out….EVERYTHING!! I don’t think, outside of the BB cream, there is one item here that I won’t use! This box was $23.00 + $6.99 shipping for a total of $29.99. I received a value of $116.16 or $97.66 if you use the Memebox duo special on the SoapBerry Cleanser. At any rate, great deal!
