Memebox Special #79 Garden of Eden Review

I know, I know …another Memebox review.  Well, what happened is this ~ for the last 2 weeks of October 2014, Memebox released a ton of boxes and then even released multiple boxes every day for the last week!  I ordered quite of few of them, obviously.   I guess it is feast or famine with Memebox and right now, we are in the famine phase for new boxes, but thankfully, I have lots of boxes that I ordered 2 months ago that are coming in.  This box was part of the last bundles sold in October and I purchased Garden of Eden with Hot & Cool Cosmetics together.

Memebox Special #79 Garden of Eden


Your skin will revel in pure joy with nature’s beauty recipe for a beautiful, more gorgeous you! On the surface of it all, your skin-care regimen may seem perfectly honest, strict, and even squeaky clean.  But did you know? Many of the your most common skin care habits are actually hostile to the skin, stripping the skin of essential natural oils, vitamins, and minerals. In the end, your skin is far from the clear, radiant and glowing skin that you crave. But, fret no more because, this box, made with the finest quality natural ingredients that you’d find in the magical Garden of Eden will give you that lit-from-within glow that is reminiscent of a goddess! If you can afford to hire a professional lighting team to follow you around 24/7, go ahead, but we’ve found a more practical (and affordable!) way to give you clearer, brighter, and more healthy complexion!

Informational Card

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!


Charmzone Gingko Natural Foam Cleansing Cream  I have never had a cleanser made from gingko before, so I am really interested in trying this out!  It may have to move up on my rotation list of cleansers.  This cleanser not only features 600 mg (not 1500 mg like the Memecard stated) ginkgo leaves extract, but willow extract, and Charmzone claims that these botanical nutrients will make your skin resilient, moisturized and protect it from harmful free radicals.  This also has a special patent (Patent No. 367563) of persimmon leaves extract, among other botanical ingredients.   You can purchase this and other Charmzone products at Amazon Marketplace.   According to my research, this cleanser has a pH level range of 6.5 ~ 7.  I hope that Memebox will include some more of Charmzone’s Gingko products ~ see the Youtube I’ve embedded here ~ they have a whole line of Gingko skincare items!   Full Size 150g Value $15.00

Product Description: Charmzone’s Ginkgo Natural Foam Cleansing Cream contains 1500 600 mg of gingko leaf extracts and other natural skin-perfecting ingredients to soften skin while gently removing makeup. An essential step in your daily skincare regimen to transform skin to a soft, healthy state, this phenomenal cleansing cream contains high concentrations of antioxidants and nourishment to condition skin for softness and greater absorbency of skincare products that follow. The velvety texture also allows a perfect glide to massage the skin and the facial muscles, supporting natural circulation

I am pretty happy with my Garden of Eden box.  I was so nervous that the CPM2 Tonymoly Appletox item would be in here, but thankfully, it was not ~ it is really good product, but I have 3 already, 2 of which I will gift away.  This box, just like the Hot & Cool Cosmetics box, seems more geared towards oily/combo-oily skin than drier skin and I love that there is a target wrinkle spot cream.   The lip balm does expire in less than a year and the eye mask…well, this is expired.   The quality control department is making a lot of mistakes lately.

I paid $29.00 with shipping already factored in as I bundled this box  ~ I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue ** of $117.00.  ** 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.
