Memebox Scentbox #5 Tropical Fruits Box Review

I had really wanted a tropical scented box for a while now, with coconut, papaya, mango and when Memebox offered Scentbox #5 Tropical Fruits, I was all over it ~ in fact, I purchased two of them!   I also purchased the Floral and Sweet Shop for my nieces and I will be reviewing them as well before sending them their treats.  They understand 🙂

Informational Card which should explain what I got and its value.

 

 

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.   I really had a hard time finding these products, by the way, so don’t be thrown off by the Korean websites that are linked here!
 


Konad Scented Nail Polish   Of course, I get the pineapple, which is a pale yellow.  In both of my boxes!  lol   I really would have liked the Lychee one, but it is not meant to be.  Actually, on the Konad site, these nailpolishes are on sale for $2.45, so I picked up Lychee and Grapefruit!   Does it smell like pineapple?  I smell a faint fruity scent, but overall, I am smelling the nailpolish.  10mL Value $6.00 Randomly selected from Grapefruit, Kiwi, Lychee, Orange, Pineapple.

LadyKin Twinklight Soft Foam Cleansing in Kiwi  I like LadyKin’s products ~ I got a few in the past, most noticeably the broccoli items in the Superfood box, so I was pleased to see another LadyKin item in this box.   Plus, it is KIWI!!  I haven’t opened this up yet, as I have a few cleansers to go thru first before getting to this one.   100mL value $10.00

Eva’s Vitamin Body Wash    Randomly selected from Papaya, Pomegranate, Orange, Lemon, Grape, Strawberry.  Okay, not sure how grape, pomegranate and strawberry are tropical. I received in box Papaya (Vitamin A + C) in box 1 and Strawberry (Vitamin B + C) in box 2.  I am pretty excited about shower gel!  I use it daily so these will both be used.  The Papaya doesn’t really smell like much, but the Strawberry does smell like strawberries.  200mL Value $6.00

I love tropical and fruity scents, so this box was a major hit for me, even with the pale yellow nailpolish!!   I think out of all of the 3 scentboxes that were released this time, Tropical Fruits was the best one.

I paid $15.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $21.99 ~ I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue ** of $48.00.   ** What is MemeValue?  It is my term to describe the value that Memebox puts on the products, which can be very over inflated.  You can usually find these products at a lesser cost, so I do suggest researching first if you wish to purchase them.

    1. I am glad I ordered the grapefruit then! I decided to keep one of the pineapple, as it is a pretty pale, pale yellow. It will be pretty with greys and glitter tops, which I will always get cause of Rainbow Honey! lol
