Memebox Whole Body Box #BodyParty Unboxing!

As I am a Memebox Ambassador, Memebox on rare occasions will send me something to review for my readers.   It can be a product, several products or one of their Memeboxes.   They recently sent me the Whole Body Box, which normally, I would never purchase.  I am not a fan of the Body Boxes, as they include hair products ~ and I am very picky about the products that I put in my hair!    I would be more inclined to purchase a Body box if they skipped the head part ~ haha.  Anyway, let’s see what I got!

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

Informational Card


Skin79 Crystal Peeling Gel This is the only product that I am not swatching right now ~ as I currently have 2 peeling gels open and I don’t want them to go to waste.  I am pretty excited about this product, however ~ in the warmer months, I do use peeling gels more often than the cooler months, due to an increase of oiliness in my skin, which means clogged pores.  It is made with plant cellulose and an enzyme that comes from Bacillus subtilis (sutilains).  It also has apple and papaya extracts, which are AHA exfoliators.  Finally, hyaluronic acid will moisturize and hydrate your skin.    Full Size 100 mL Value $13.00

What is a Peeling Gel?  I wrote this up for the Secret Key Lemon De-tox review and I think it is bears repeating here:

Good question…. Peeling gels are not peels ~ they are actually non-physical exfoliators that use fruit enzymes to dissolve dead skin cells and unclog pores, which you can see as you massage it onto your skin. They revitalize and refresh the skin and only remove a small amount of superficial skin. Peeling gels must be applied to clean, DRY skin, otherwise, they do not work as well. Peeling gels should also have an alpha hydroxy acid (glycolic, citric, lactic) as this acid helps in removing dead skin cells ~ lemons and papayas naturally contain alpha hydroxy acids. Another common ingredient is hyaluronic acid, as that will increase moisture and hydration and improve your skin’s texture and tone.

However, there are some peeling gels out there on the market that I consider bogus and the way you can test if a peeling gel is actually working to remove dead skin cells is really simple. Just put some of your peeling gel on a counter top or dish and rub it in. If you see any clumping after you rub it in, then it is bogus. Sorry, but counter tops and dishes do not slough off dead skin cells. You should only see the clumps when it is applied to skin, as the oils from your skin is what should activate the fibers and enzymes in a peeling gel. Those clumps are part product (listed as acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer or carbomer or cellulose), part your skin cells, held together with the oils from your skin. If the clumps are greyish-white in color as well, don’t worry ~ that just means that your skin was dirty!

Description: Containing Cellulose from plants and Sutilains components that helps with exfoliation, removes accumulated sebum and dead skin cells, it bestows vitality to the skin and makes the skin texture clean and sleek. Trehalose and Hyaluronic Acid soothe sensitive skin so that maintain balance of oil and water while Apple Extract protects calms skin in comfort from harmful environment and stress so that maintains healthy skin.

Secret Key So Fast Hair Booster Treatment I initially GROANED when I saw this HUGE bottle of hair treatment.  I thought it was a leave-in product, but then as I learned more about it, I became very happy with it.  This is a pH balanced hair conditioning treatment that you do rinse out ~ so use it in place of a conditioner.  You can leave it in your hair for 2-5 minutes for a daily condition, or a 20 minute intense treatment that will leave your hair smooth and silky.    It contains allantoin and centella extracts, that will nourish both the hair and scalp.   This has a strange ingredient in it ~ Yukmijihwang complex.  I poked around and I found out that it is an Asian herbal mixture and I think it contains these six herbal extracts: rehmannia chinensis,  cornus officinalis,  dioscorea japonica, alisma orientale, paeonia suffruiticosa, and poria cocos.   This complex is supposed to stimulate hair growth. This product is recommended for chemically treated hair ~ I color my hair, so I guess that is good enough for me!   This is a creamy medium textured conditioner product and it doesn’t weight my hair down.  It has a generic conditioner scent to it, a bit floral, but nothing overpowering or lasting.  I am really happy with this product so far!  Full Size 350 mL Value $15.00

Description: This treatment has the function like a hair pack, rinse and LPP all together.  Available to protect the hair from perm and dyeing, specially formulated with keratin compounds for shiny and healthy hair.  Yukmijihwang complex is used to strengthen the root of hair and replenish nutrients.

Holika Holika Baby Foot One Shot Peeling  I am so happy to get a foot peeling mask in this box!  Holika Holika was the first one I tried, and whereas it isn’t as great as Nature Republic Lemon Footing Peeling mask, it comes in at a close second.   For those unfamiliar with foot peeling masks, these are an intense treatment that remove the dead skin on the bottom of your feet.   I first soak my feet for about 5 to 10 minutes, so soften them up for better absorption of the product and then place the foot masks on my feet for 90 minutes to 2 hours.   After that time has passed,  I take off the booties (in the shower or bathtub!) and then rinse my feet well to remove any remaining essence.   I moisturize my feet daily, but when I am going thru this treatment, I also wear socks at night to help speed up the peeling process.    I also scrub my feet daily and within 4-10 days, I start to see the dead skin on my feet peel off.  Since I have tough feet, I usually am around the 8 to 10 day time frame before the skin starts to peel.  Don’t force the peel!  If your skin isn’t coming off or it hurts to remove it, soak your feet for 20 minutes in warm water and use a scrubber.  It will come off when it is ready and the last thing you want to do is rip any new skin that could be attached to the dead skin.

Holika Holika has the essence outside of the booties when you open up the package.  To use these, you would first put on the booties and then with scissors, gently cut open a corner of the peeling essence (as you don’t want to be forceful and have all of the liquid squirt out!) and pour it into the bootie with your feet.   Tape up the bootie ~ I will also put on cotton socks (like athletic socks)  so that I can at least hobble around my home if I need to.    That’s it!  Just follow the rest of the instructions and you will have softer, smoother feet in about a week or two ~ if you plan on doing this during the summer, note that the peeling will look gross.  I recommend that you do not wear sandals or open toe shoes during this time, if that bothers you.   To speed up the peeling time, moisturize your feet heavily and then put on some sock and then your shoes, as the friction from the socks/shoes along with the trapped moisture will really cause your skin to peel.   One treatment Value $12.00

Ingredients:   Purified water, alcohol, lactic acid, sodium lactate, Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Arginine, phenoxyethanol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, salicylic acid, fragrance, disodium EDTA, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, urea, Chamaecyparis Obtusa (cypress) Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf Extract, Pelargonium Graveolens Extract, Melissa Officinalis (lemonbalm) Leaf Extract, Origanum Vulgare (oregano) Leaf Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract,  Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) analysis

Secret Key Perfume Peeling Body Scrub No 1    Every time I see the words Perfume on a skin care product, I break out in hives.  They are usually some horrible floral scent and I just want to toss it in the garbage.  I was also concerned as this gommage-type body scrub had a nice big FLOWER on it.  Well, to my surprise, the No 1 scent is a fruity sweet scent that reminds of a wine-y grape scent.  So, that makes ME very happy and my hives are now in remission ;)  Secret Key has already proven themselves in the Peeling Gel department with their wonderful Lemon Detox and I was curious about this body peeling gel.   It does ball up nicely on my skin, so that is a good sign ~ but will it pass the plate test?  Sure enough, it DID!  No balling up, which means that this is probably a very good body exfoliator and the cellulose ratio in this product is not too high.

Unlike other peeling gels, this does not contain any fruit enzymes, but instead relies on sugar and walnut shell powder to mildly exfoliate along with argan oil, almond oil and shea butter to moisturize your skin.  It also is an anti-inflammatory due to boswellia serrata plant extracts. The instructions states you can use this on your face as well, and I am sure you can, as it seems gentle enough.  However, I will just this just on my body as I do have other peeling gels specifically designed for my face only and this is the only body peeling gel I have.  Full Size 200 mL Value $13.00

Plate Test

No balling up of product on the plate.

Missha Total Repairing Hand Treatment This was an item that was randomly selected ~ the other choice was a Missha Miracle Steam Hand Cream, which is a hand cream in a tin.   I am glad I got this one, as I am not a fan of hand creams in a tin.   Missha makes really good hand and foot creams and this one is no exception.   It is very rich and creamy, and it does absorb nicely into my hands.    My hands feel soft and smoother, and the surface of my hands feel silky to the touch.  This hand cream is an anti-wrinkle and whitening hand cream.  I don’t believe I have had a hand cream with fermented products in it, but this one has a lot of those rich Vitamin B ingredients: lactobacillus , galactomyces, black yeast ferment extract and red berry ferment water ~ all that help with hydrating your hands.   

This also contains shea butter and macadamia seed oil to help moisturize and smooth your skin and niacinamide for whitening/brightening your skin tone.   The only downside for me about this cream is its scent.   It does smell floral and that is due to its “white flower” complex and also, I believe the natural tea complex (green tea, mulberry, cinnamon, kudzu)  ingredients in this product.     This might be a cream that I just use at night time, so I don’t have to smell it on me ~ this does have jasmine in it, but the floral is more than just jasmine, otherwise I would not be able to tolerate this cream at all.  Aside from my own personal preferences on scent, this hand cream does sound very interesting and I do love the way it makes my hands feel.  I do wish that Missha would have kept with the original packaging, as I like that botanical print better than the plain purple and silver design.  Full Size 60 mL Value $10.00

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Shea Butter, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Niacinamide, Polyglutamic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearyl Olivate, Polysorbate 60, Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Black Yeast Ferment Filtrate, Macadamia Seed Oil, Betaine, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Extract, Lycium Chinense Fruit Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Extract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Extract, Lilium Candidum Bulb Extract, Camellia Sinensis Extract, Chrysanthellum Indicum Flower Extract, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark Extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Extract, Diospyros Kaki Leaf Extract, Morus Alba Fruit Extract, Pueraria Lobata Root Extract, Dimethicone, Carbomar, Beeswax, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Adenosine, Tromethamine, Sorbitan Olivate, Benzophenone-5, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Carprylyl Glycol, Chlorphenesin, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Iron Oxides, Fragrance analysis

I would first like to thank Memebox for their generosity for sending me this box.   I am pleasantly surprised that I liked it as much as I do and I will use all of the products.  My favorite products are the Secret Key So Fast Hair Booster Treatment, which is a HUGE surprise for me, and of course, the foot peeling masks by Holika Holika.  This box is still available and if you want a solid head to toe box, this is one that might work for you.   The box value is $63.00 to $65.00 and the price tag on this is $35.00, which includes shipping.
