I came home and found an unexpected pink box at my doorstep. It was a lone box, so it couldn’t be my OMG4/My Cute Wishlist 4 bundle ~ I am not expecting that until tomorrow. I opened it up and it seems that Memebox sent me this box, #65 Korea’s Most Wanted, for my unbiased and honest review. Cool!! This box, btw, is still in stock at Memebox, so if you like my review, check it out!

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!
Elroel’s Tone Up Starter SPF 50+ PA+++ Green This is a green base starter plus sunscreen base, which is will color correct any redness in your skin tone. I have never really used a tinted color correcting product before ~ I have used CC creams ~ and this does sound very interesting. It is a very light mint green, hard to see, but if I compare it against a stark white color, I can really see the green in it. It absorbs very quickly into my skin and is not greasy or tacky. It does take on the color of my skin, so no, I am not going around like Elphaba from Wicked! Full Size 50mL Value $43.00 (it is on sale at the Memeshop)
No, you won’t look like this (although she is very pretty!!)
Product Description: elRoel Tone Up Sun Gel re-launched as the Tone Up Starter, still boosting its high UV protections level while newly equipped with tone balancing and skin smoothing features. It’ll work to fill in fine lines and wrinkles and brighten up the overall complexion, perfectly prepping the skin for a well-moisturized, long-lasting makeup adherence. Elroel’s Tone Up SunGel offers light, non-greasy UVA/UVB 50 sun protection and creates a sheer, luxurious base for the look of perfect skin. A dose of powerful antioxidants revitalizes and guards against premature signs of aging, plus, the green formula counteracts redness and blemishes to brighten and perfect the skin tone. Skin is hydrated, shielded, and ready for makeup
What It Does: Protects skin from UVA/UVB rays, guards against premature signs of aging, and counteracts redness and blemishes to create the perfect canvas for makeup application.
How To Use: On a cleansed face, use 2 to 3 pumps of Tone Up SunGel and massage all over the skin. Use alone for a sheer finish, or use it under makeup for long-lasting makeup stay, and sun protection.
Key Ingredients: tea tree extract, lotus flower extract, cactus leaf extract, ice plan extract, orange extract
Hiello – Blooming Multi Firming Cream Ahhh, well, this is a disaster. For the record, my Memebox came in great condition. The box was not damaged, did not look beat up. There is another product that is in a glass jar and wasn’t protected by another box and it was fine. The red box that the cream came in looked fine as well. However, when I opened up the box, a smashed mess of glass and facial cream fell into my hands. I was lucky that I didn’t cut myself on this. I am not sure what happened. Perhaps this red box was dropped in the warehouse and broke there, because there is no signs of damage at all to this Memebox or the other products inside this box. That would have had some force to look like this. I wouldn’t have been able to use this item anyway, because it contains rose, but it would have been nice to gift it. This contains Flanders poppy water (60%), collagen/vitamin peptide, green tea, danask rose water, centella asiaticea and does not contain parabens, artificial pigments, mineral oil, benzophenon, animal ingredients or talc. This cream had a light peach scent to it. Such is life and this was the most expensive item in the box. Full Size 50 mL Value $50.00
Product Description: A richly concentrated anti-wrinkle facial cream formulated with a blend of poppy extracts, vitamin peptide, collagen, green tea water, Damascus rose water and centella asiatica (medicinal herb). Smooth out sagging skin, brighten up dulled complexion and rejuvenate stressed out skin with the best of Hiello Blooming Multi Firming cream!
How To Use: Apply a small amount of the cream directly to clean face. For an overnight pampering treatment once a week, thickly coat face with the cream, massage it in gently, and take your beauty sleep without washing it off.
The Tang Tang Kissy Skin Therapy Peeling Wash This is a peeling gel that is is for dry and sensitive skin types. I have neither issues, in fact, my skin is very oily. However, I am sure I will find a great home for this peeling gel. It sounds really good, and they state that its formula is 100% from naturally derived ingredients. I looked at thetangtang.com website and couldn’t find this product, so it is difficult to give you more information. Full Size 100 mL Value $23.00
Product Description: A peeling gel designed specifically to target dry and sensitive skin types. Regular peeling products contains unnecessary ingredients which makes it look a lot of dead skin cells and skin impurities are rubbing away when applied. The Tang Tang Kissy Skin Therapy Peeling Wash boosts its gentle, nourishing formula made from only naturally-derived ingredients minus all the unnecessary skin detriments.
How To Use: Spread an adequate amount of the peeling gel over dried face. Rest for about 40 seconds and just before it begins to harden, gently massage nose, cheeks, and the rest of face. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Do not use a soap or foam cleanser.
Kskin Emu Leg R-Free Massage Cream This is a massage cooling cream that sounds similar to the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Shrink Lifting R- pro that I received in Global #16 ~ and I love that product! This is made from emu oil, which is rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, vitamin A, snail mucus extracts, peppermint oil, hyaluronic acid and menthol complexes. This is a cooling, very strong minty cream that helps achy and tired legs and feet and can be used on other parts of the body to help with stress relief. I am glad that I got another one of these types of products to use. I have used emu oil before in facial products, so this doesn’t shock me or anything. Full Size 100 g Value $46.00
Poor Emu…yes, the little flightless bird is being used for its fat here
Why is emu oil so beneficial? Some people apply emu oil to the skin for relief from sore muscles, aching joints, pain or inflammation, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, shin splints, and gout. It is also used topically to improve healing of wounds, cuts, and burns from radiation therapy; to reduce bruises and stretch marks; to reduce scarring and keloids; to heal surgical wounds caused by removing skin for skin grafts; to reduce redness due to acne; and to soften dry cuticles and promote healthy nails. Emu oil is also used topically athlete’s foot; diaper rash; canker sores; chapped lips; poor circulation; and skin conditions, including cancer, dry skin, dandruff, eczema, psoriasis, wrinkles or age spots. It is also used to protect skin from sun damage and to promote more youthful looking skin. Emu oil is also applied to the skin to reduce pain and irritation from shingles, bedsores, hemorrhoids, diabetic nerve pain, insect bites, earaches, eye irritation, “growing pains,” and frostbite. It is used for rashes, razor burn, and nicks. from http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-825-emu%20oil.aspx?activeingredientid=825&activeingredientname=emu%20oil
Product Description: Emu R Free Cream created for the esthetic shops. The deep penetrating relief of Emu oil and natural ingredients relax the stress and irritation of your body and supply moisture and nutrition and freshness. You can feel your body sooth and slim and fresh.
LadyKin One Touch Bling Glow Lipstick randomly selected from 08 Fall Rose, 09 Deep Plum Burgundy, 10 Chic Red I received the Fall Rose color and I am glad that I got this one. I think this is a lovely color to wear, a mauve rose color, and it goes on smoothly. My lips are very hydrated and this almost has the feel of a lip balm, it is that moisturizing. The lipstick also smells faintly like strawberries, which is a nice surprise! Full Size 3.5 gram Value $11.00
Product Description: Creamy soft lipstick glides on with ease, wrapping lips in generous moisture with the use of its exclusive Osmo system for prolonged comfort and improved suppleness. Rich and voluptuous rose pink shade lends a touch of sophistication with every swipe, adding a hint of mystery with its subdued palette. Aromatic formula uplifts and invigorates the senses with its sweet and refreshing scent.
- Perfect coloring and elastic lips of red rosé wine adapted the Osmo system, a natural extract method.
- Creates Vital Lips: It expresses glamorous feeling, natural and vivid lip color with one touch.
- Perfect Adhesion and Smooth Texture: Expresses smooth and neat lips to adhere as sliding like a soft cream.
The Face Shop Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Essence I received the matching face cream in my Face Shop box and I am very pleased to see the Essence here! I am a fan of the Calendula line already and this will be great to use both the moisturizer and the essence together. This essence is not greasy, very lightweight and has no strong scent. It absorbs quickly into my skin. Full Size 35 mL Value $9.00

The botanical complex formula replenishes the skin with moisture. This essence is suitable for all skin types especially dry, acne prone, and sensitive skin.

Put essence once on the skin for the T-zone and twice on the skin around eyes and lips. For extra dry skin and those who are older, follow with an emulsion or cream for more moisturization
I actually enjoyed receiving this box. There are two items that I cannot use as I was either allergic to one of the ingredients ~ rose in the Hiello Blooming Cream ~ or it was for dry/sensitive skin ~ The Tang Tang Kissy Peeling cream. My only disappointment is that the Hiello cream was smashed beyond use and I am not sure how this could have happened. I can only assume this happened prior to the shipping stage, as my Memebox and its contents were not smashed, crushed or even dinged. I will really get good usage out of the Kskin Emu Leg Cream, the LadyKin lipstick is just beautiful and I love The Face Shop’s Calendula Eden line. The green correcting cream will be interesting to use and I look forward to seeing if that tones down any redness I might have, especially with the upcoming winter months, with the raw, biting winds in the Northeast part of the USA.
I received this box for free in exchange for my honest review. You can still purchase Superbox #65 Korea’s Most Wanted 2 at Memebox and it is $32.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $38.99. The total MemeValue of this box is of $182.00, which surpasses Memebox’s claim of over $100.00 worth of products.
