Unboxing Memebox Leaders Mystery Value Box

Memebox finally did a USA box that sold out quickly!  It was a Mystery Box, featuring Leaders ~ a fantastic company whose bio-coconut masks I have used in the past and their tomato facial sheet masks are a Mom-favorite!   I have 456,789 masks right now, but hey, I can use more and I figure my mom can too!  My mom never used a facial sheet mask until last year, when I visited her and we spent each evening doing a K-beauty spa night, while watching Game of Thrones, The Vikings and The Hobbit ~ haha ~ pretty funny to see two women with their facial sheet masks, hand masks, foot masks on while munching on some great macaroons and drinking some wine, as we watched handsome men on TV.   The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, I say!

I have a whole section in my blog,  devoted to Memebox, so if you want to know more, check out the Memebox category.

Leaders Mystery Value Box 

 

Thirsty Thursday is here! Quench your skin’s thirst with this mystery value box stuffed with hydrating goodies!   To welcome Leaders to Memebox.com, we put together some of their best items into a limited edition super value box. Entice your skin with some of Leaders top notch items and elevate your skin game to another level. Get glorious, glossy, glowing skin with this box.  Leaders makes the next generation of premium mask materials that is safe to use and works for all skin types. Leaders Insolution was formulated by the R&D labs of Leaders Clinic dermatologists from SNU (Seoul National University), Korea’s #1 University (Go SNU Cranes!). 

I received 10 hydro-gel bio-coconut facial sheet masks.  The reason why I love Leaders so much is that their hydro-gel masks are ONE piece.  I have issues with the 2-piece masks, as the lower half just keeps sliding down and off my face ~ I guess my lips and chin are too small!

All of the following masks are made from premium coconut gel:  “Our coconut gel is made from all natural fermented coconut juice which contains Vitamins B and C.  The gel material adheres perfectly to the skin and has natural soothing and hydrating properties“.  All of theses masks are free from parabens, alcohol, mineral oil and artificial coloring.
 

Tomato Masks
  I received 2 of the Tomato masks, which are my mom’s favorite masks along with My Beauty Diary’s Red Wine masks.   These I will be gifting to her.  I do love Leaders’ Tomato masks myself, due to their antioxidant properties, but my mom loves them more 🙂   These masks do retail for $4.00 apiece, so the retail value is $8.00

Orange Masks  I received 2 Orange Masks, which I have never tried before. I think I will keep one for me and give one to my mom (Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I have to think about these things ahead of time, as I have to ship my gifts to her).   Orange has Vitamin C, and that stimulates the skin to produce more collagen, to firm and brighten skin tone.  It also exfoliates and tightens pores. This is a brighten and exfoliate mask and I am pretty excited to try it!  2 pieces Value $8.00

Brightening Recovery Masks  Again, I received 2 of these and these masks designed to brighten and even out the skin tone.  I will keep one and give one to my mom, even though she doesn’t have blemishes, she will like brightening aspect of the mask.  These not only contain niacinamide, which we all know helps brighten skin tone, but also telangyn, which is a peptide that helps reduce inflammation, redness and hyper-pigmentation.   These are a bit more expensive at $5.00 each, for a value of $10.00

Balancing Recovery Masks  2 masks in this line and these do have rose water in them, but that ingredient is far down the list of list, so I will spot test with the essence and see if it works out for me.  This mask will help control oil and blemishes, while deeply hydrating skin.  I do not know exactly what AC-Fensine is made from, but I did find a description for what it does: ” AC-Fensine : Kills acne bacteria, Strengthens skin’s immune system” (source)   It does sound like a patented ingredient:  “…developed by the Spanish research institute to destroy acne bacteria on the skin while strengthening the immune system.” (source)  Value for both masks $10.00

Lifting Recovery Mask  My mom will love this mask!  I would too, but I did purchase this box with the intent to give as many masks in it to my mom.    This mask will help to firm and reduce the appearance of fine lines, while deeply moisturizing the skin. 

What is Serilesine?  “Serilesine is a form of hexapeptide-10 that is made a Spanish company called Lipotec…Serilesine is supposed to be so good because it is based on chains of laminin – the second most abundant protein in the skin after collagen, but buried deep down and, hence, often overlooked. According to Lipotec, laminin is brilliant at cell migration, cell growth and adhesion.(source)   However, as Truth in Aging Points out, there aren’t any independent studies on serilesine’s effects.  But there is adenoisine, which has been proven to improve fine lines and wrinkles, along with mushroom extracts.  Value $5.00

Plus some samples were included too!

I am very happy with this box.  Leaders does make other products besides masks, and I was hoping that Memebox would have added another product besides a mask in here, but I do love their facial sheet masks and I love masks boxes in general (hello, MaskGenie and Beauteque is doing a monthly mask bag as well).  I would love to see Memebox do a monthly mask box too, as I also love to gift masks to my unsuspecting friends, family and co-workers.  It is still a “strange” item here in the Northeast part of the US, but everyone that I have gifted masks to, has really enjoyed them.  I would even enjoy a Mystery box featuring a company or product line as well!

I paid $25.00 for this box and added on a cleanser so I would get free shipping (haha ~ just $5.00 more) and I received a value of $46.00.  I didn’t use Memevalue, as Leaders Masks are this expensive.  At times, they will have huge sales, but rarely.  Even eBay doesn’t sell them at such a discounted rate.

Did you get the Memebox Leaders Mystery Value Box?  What did you think of it?  Do you want Memebox to do a monthly Mystery box featuring a company or product line?  Let me know in the comments below!
