I really like Skinfood 스킨푸드 products ~ they specialize in creating skincare and makeup products using fruits, vegetables and other edible items :D Hence the name! The packaging is also very unique as they try to mimic food packaging ~ such as a honey pot for their honey masks. Memebox hasn’t sent us that much in regards to Skinfood items ~ I think the only product I received was some bath salts in the Herbal box. Imagine my joy when Memebox announced the Skinfood box last week ~ yes, LAST WEEK ~ with shipping within 3-5 days! They also announced The Face Shop box, which I purchased as well. Since I purchased the bundle, I received this the day after it shipped.

Informational Card which should explain what I got and its value.
Facial Water Vita-C Cream This is more of a hybrid cream-gel ~ it has a nice gel-like texture that quickly turns into a watery serum on my skin. It is recommended to store this in the refrigerator for optimal results. This contains berry extracts and Alaskan (again, so exotic! haha) glacier waters. I am very excited to try this one out and I will use it tonight as a hydrating pack. Full Size 75 g Value $13.00
Product Description: A facial water cream that instantly fills thirsty skin with vital hydrating energy of Vita C complex and Alaska glacier water. Quench thirst by delivering a richly nutritious blend of Vitamin C complex and Alaska glacier water deep into skin. The Vitamin C complex contains extracts from raspberry, acai berry, cranberry and strawberry and works to replenish healthy energy to dehydrated, dulled complexion.
How To Use: Apply directly to clean face and let it absorb. It’s recommended to be refrigerated for better moisturizing and soothing results. It can also be used as a hydrating pack by applying a thicker amount of the cream.
[Vita C Complex Story] This complex delivers revitalizing hydration with effective ingredients from vitamin C-enriched berries- raspberry, acai berry, cranberry, and strawberry.
[Alaska Glacier Water Story] Alaska is on initial source of water covered with over 20,000-year-old glaciers. Alaska glacier water is fresh water at mildly alkaline pH, enriched with oxygen, minerals and ions.

Black Sugar Mask Wash Off This is probably one of their more famous and popular items and I even own it! I love this product ~ I just massage into in my skin and then let sit for 5-10 minutes and then I wash it off. It smells lightly of lemons (at least to me!) and it is a dark sugar scrub that isn’t harsh on the skin. My face feels so clean and refreshed after I use this, without that drying feeling of being “stripped” I really am happy to find this in my Skinfood box, as I bet you are too! Full Size 100 g Value $9.00
Product Description: An effective facial exfoliator, rich in various vitamins and minerals. Use occasionally to cleanse away excessive dead skin cells, oil and skin impurities piling up in the pores to make skin sensitive and troublesome. It’ll bring back healthy radiance and suppleness to skin with just a single use.
How To Use: After washing, apply desired amount onto face, avoiding eye and mouth areas. Mix with water or toner to reduce skin irritation, and massage. Wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash off with warm water.

Egg White Pore Meringue Foam I have tried Skinfood’s Egg White Pore Foam, which is different from this product ~ the Meringue Foam. I did like the that sample, so I am very happy to find this in my box, as the Egg White series is specially formulated for oily skin. This is a very light weight cleanser, so I will use this at night time. This has 1,000 mg of Egg White (Arbutin) extract. Full Size 200 mL Value $13.00
Product Description: An auto-pump foaming cleanser that gently cleanses skin and pores with luxuriant, meringue-like foam. Egg White is loaded with albumin that consists of amino acids.
[Egg white Story] Egg white, enriched with alumin, promotes firmer skin and smaller pores.
How To Use: Dispense a few pumps and gently massage onto face. Rinse off thoroughly with warm water.
Ingredients (I will transcribe the label later into text, as I know it is hard to read with those big stamps on it)
Tomato Whitening Toner I don’t believe I have ever had a skincare item made from tomato extracts before. This is exciting! This is a toner that will help brighten skintone, by the use of arbutin ~ an ingredient used to treat hyperpigmenation and is a natural filter against types A, B and C UV radiation. It also contains 10% tomato extracts, which are rich in lycopene ~ a strong antioxidant and will protect skin cells from aging. This product will also help with blemishes too, so this will be a fun product for me to try out. This doesn’t smell like tomatoes, btw. It has a light scent, almost floral. Full Size 180 ml Value $17.00
Product Description: Contains arbutin and tomato extract and helps fight various pigmentation and brightens skin tone. Tomato extract contains vitamins A, C, B2 (riboflavin), organic acids, minerals, enzymes. Helps increase facial skin softens, elasticity and freshness. Toner helps clear away dead skin cells and prepares it for followup skincare ~ to help nutrients penetrate more deeply into the epidermis.
Ingredients: WATER, ALCOHOL, GLYCERIN, ARBUTIN, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, PEG/PPG-17/6, COPYLOMER, PEG-60, HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, BETAINE, SODIUM HYALURONATE, SORBITOL, ALANINE, PROLINE, SERINE, THREONINE, GLYCINE, ARGININE, LYSINE, GLUTAMIC ACID, SODIUM PCA, DIETHOXYETHYL SUCCINATE, BETA-GLUCAN, SODIUM CITRATE, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, CAPRYLICYC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, DIACETYL BOLDINE, SOLANUM LYCOPERSICIUM (TOMATO) FRUIT/LEAF/STEM EXTRACT, AMORPHOPHALLUS KONJAC ROOT EXTRACT, PUNICA GRANATUM FRUIT EXTRACT, CHAENOMELES SINENSIS FRUIT EXTRACT, DISODIUM EDTA, METHYLPARABEN, PHENOXYMETHANOL, CI 15985, PARFUM
Yes, I swatched before I took the picture!!
Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake Randomly selected from 01 Grey Khaki Black, 02 Grey Brown. This is a strange choice to be in a Skinfood box and I just received a HUGE eyebrow palette in my October Starlooks Starbox, so I was a bit disappointed in this selection for a makeup item, as it is a bit of a dup for me. BUT since I cannot carry around the Starlooks palette, this is a nice size to put in my makeup bag. I received 02 Grey Brown, which I am pleased with this color. This has the light pigmentation that many eyebrow products have, as you don’t want to go around looking like Groucho Marx. In a pinch and perhaps wet, I can use these as eyeshadows, but they are very light. This is made with cacao extracts, and yes, it DOES smell like chocolate! Full Size 4g Value $5.00
How did I feel about Memebox’s first Skinfood Box? I thought it was pretty darn good ~ much better than I expected it to be. Skinfood has so many product lines, so I am sure there were many items that people wanted that did not appear in this box. However, I felt this box was a perfect fit for my skin type ~ I can use every single one of these products as they will work with oily skin.
I paid $29.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $35.99 ~ I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue of $57.00 However, the $6.99 was one cost, as I did bundle it with The Face Shop (review to be up tomorrow!) and it was DHL express shipping. Since I will use all of these products, this box was worth it to me, even though it didn’t have a HUGE value like other Memeboxes.
