I love berries ~ the scent of them, eating them, berry colors are one of my favs and when a company decides to use berries in their skincare products, I am there! Memebox announced a Berry box the other week and it was a mystery box too, so you know WHAT that MEANS, right? Berries + mystery = I am a sucker for these types of things! So are a lot of other MemeAddicts, as this box sold out quickly. I finally received this box over the weekend and I am happy to do an unboxing for you now!
I have a whole section in my blog, devoted to Memebox, so if you want to know more, check out the Memebox category.
Berrylicious Mystery Box #berryliciousskin
Do you always wonder how people can have a flawless complexion, and skin so soft? Well ladies, it all starts with the skin. Cleansing, we cannot further stress the importance of cleansing in every skin routine. Many times we breakout because of leftover residue that ends up irritating our skin, in which results in the production of a pimple. Keep your skin hydrated and enrich it with the various nutrients that are derived from Cranberries, Cherries, Wildberries, and Strawberries packed with Vitamins A, C, K, B6, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and many other skin benefiting nutrients that are used to brighten, whiten and liven up your complexion. Get #berryliciousskin now, and share a pic of this box of berrylicious goodies with your friends using this hashtag!
Lioele Vita Juicy Foam Cleanser in Cranberry I have tried Lioele’s Blueberry Vita Juicy Foam Cleanser, which is for Normal/Dry skin, and that was a nice cleanser. Cranberry is for Oily Skin and Lioele also makes a Gold Kiwi version, which is for Sensitive Skin. The cranberry version contains the extracts of rosehip fruit, soybean, lotus flower, carrot root, wheat, oat, licorice, green tea and rice as well as cranberry, which helps exfoliate and remove dirt, excess oils and dead skin cells which clog pores. This is a rich cleanser with Vitamins A, C, E and K which will nourish your skin and purify, while tightening up pores. One thing I am thinking of doing is creating a page that contains cleansers that I have used with a pH factor test. Would my readers be interested in that? I don’t always open up my cleansers right away, so I would link back to the description in my pH Factor blog post and would update it every time I open a new cleanser. Full Size 150 mL Value $18.50
Description: Purifying cleansing foam for oily skin. Cranberry helps to slough off dead skin cells, especially on oily skin that tends to clog pores, causing dull skin and breakouts. Contains Vitamins and Lioele’s patented formula to leave the skin healthy and vitalized.

Skinfood Cherry Milk Soft Hand Essence This is a lovely light weight lotion that smells like cherries ~ not over powering, but very soft. I have this at work, and my other co-workers are coming in my office just to use this! Cherry extracts contain Vitamin C, beta-carotene and anti-oxidants to help brighten your skin tone, plus milk proteins and mineral oil, which keep your hands smooth and hydrated, along with Vitamin E. It is not a heavy duty hand cream, but it works well for normal usage and if you hands just need additional moisturizing. I just got another one in my Easter Eggs from Memebox, so now I have two! Full Size 150 mL Value $10.00

Skinfood Wildberry Milk Cleansing Cream (Moist) ~ I have used (and loved!) Skinfoods Green Tea Milk Cleansing Foam that I received in my Beauteque’s Milk Head to Toe bag. The Moist is for normal to dry skin, but cleansing creams and foams usually work fine for me, as it just cleans my face ~ since this contains strawberry extracts, it works well for oily skin in the respect that the linoleic acid will help with acne and oil. This cleansing cream has milk extracts to moisturized the skin along with wild strawberry extracts, which will soothe any inflammation. Cleansing creams are like using a cold cream ~ you just apply onto the skin, massage gently until your face is clean and then you can wipe off with cotton pads or rinse with water. This cleanser has a light berry scent ~ reminds me of Yoplait ‘s Strawberry Yogurt! It is a very pale pink in color and it has the texture of a thick Greek-style yogurt ~ yogurt on my mind ~ this does look like yogurt and I am now hungry for a berry one! Full Size 150 mL Retail Value $9.50
Ingredients: water, mineral oil, glycerin, isopropyl myristate, polysorbate 60, cetearyl alcohol, triethanolamine, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, glyceryl stearate, carbomer, sorbitan stearate, sodium cetyl sulfate, fragaria vesca (wild strawberry) fruit extract, butylene glycol, milk protein, methylparaben, propylparaben, phenoxyethanol, CI 15985, CI 17200, fragrance cosDNA.com analysis
Tonymoly Cherry Lip Balm Isn’t this cute? I love the fruit lip balms from Tonymoly ~ I already own this, so I will be gifting as a birthday gift. I have the peach, blueberry and cherry already and the tomato and green apple on the way. The cherry lip balm has a light peach-pink tint to it and this goes on glossy. It has a candy-cherry scent to it, very light and it really doesn’t have a taste (other than a lip balm taste!). This lip balm is made with the extracts of sweet cherry, cranberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and raspberry, along with Vitamin E and has an SPF15 PA+ protection. This product has a lot of emollient and moisturizer ingredients in it. Full Size 9 g Retail Value $9.00

Skinfood Strawberry Black Sugar Wash Off Mask I own this scrub already and am currently using it. This smells like strawberries and looks like a yummy homemade strawberry jam ~ seeds visible ~ but don’t eat it!! I have used Skinfood’s Black Sugar Wash Off Mask, which I equally enjoy with its lemon scent, but this mask is a bit more gentle than the original version. This scrub has ingredients that help tighten pores and control oiliness with the strawberry extracts ~ along with its antioxidant properties, high in Vitamin A & C , and helping clear up acne prone skin as it contains linoleic acid. Mineral-rich Brazilian Black Sugar (sucrose) gently exfoliates that dissolves into your skin as you massage it in and shea butter, macadamia oil and glycerin all contribute to moisturizing and acting as humectant ~ attracts and traps moisture. This is a good mask for all skin types, in my opinion, and use it accordingly based on your skin type. I find that I can use this at least twice a week on my oily-but-aging skin type and it really does brighten, exfoliate and clean my skin! The photo below is from my current-in-use tub of this product. Full Size 100 g Value $16.80
Description: Skinfood Black Sugar Strawberry Mask Wash Off is an exfoliating mask that will reveal soft and smooth skin. This mask is infused with humectants, emulsifiers, antioxidants, black sugar and strawberry seed oil. This scrub removes dead skin cells while keeping skin moisturized.
How to use: Apply a moderate amount of the product in palm and then gently massage the product onto face. Leave scrub on for about 20 minutes and then rinse

Berrylicious Mystery Box is a pretty nice box ~ It is heavy on the Skinfood and cleansers, but I happen to like Skinfood and even though I don’t NEED another cleanser, I will use them and I do go through them fairly quickly. I am very happy to have a backup of the Strawberry Skinfood scrub as I really like that a lot, and the WildBerry Cream Cleanser is something I haven’t tried before. The lotion already has a home at my work desk and I already have my fellow co-workers coming over to try out the lotion :) I paid $39.00 for this value set and received a *MemeValue of $63.80 ** MemeValue ~ you can certainly find these products cheaper elsewhere.
