Memebox Special #11 Cacao Box

I was so excited about receiving this box. When I first saw it online I was “OMG! I have to get it! Cacao?! Chocolate!!!!!!” And I’m not disappointed.

 

BOX COST & VALUE

Cost of Box: US$23 plus shipping

Value of Box: US$81 (as per box info card)

 

Box Description

“Whoever said chocolate is bad for you? Your skin we mean! In the ancient world, Cacao was regarded as the Food of the Gods due to the many beauty benefits it offered for both the skin and health. With its high antioxidant content, raw cacao is guaranteed to make your skin appear dramatically healthier as it locks in nutrients and collagen within the skin, while also removing any excess oil and impurities from the pores.”

 

Box Items

 

1. Etude House Milk Talk (200ml)

Full size product: 200ml ($7)

Etude House Milk Talk

Etude House Milk Talk

Product Description

This adorably packaged body wash is one of Etude House’s favourites among its fans for the heavenly sweet, chocolatey fragrance! Plus, it can be used as both a body wash and bath milk – simply pour it in for a hot bubbly chocolate bath.

What I think so far…

From the description I’m imagining taking a bath in a hot chocolate mmmm… :) This body wash smells exactly like chocolate milk. It smells soooo yummy. It’s also cute cos the bottle looks like a milk bottle. The only downside is the small bottle (200ml). I don’t think it’s going to last me very long…

 

2. WondeRuci Cacao Brightening Mask (100g)

Full size product: 100g ($38)

WondeRuci Cacao Brightening Mask

Product Description

Enjoy a luxurious aroma massage effect with this Cacao Brightening Mask right in your home! The real cacao components from the mask cleanse away all dirt and impurities piled up in your pores and the various minerals included work to moisturise and brighten up your complexion. (The mask texture also looks, feels and smells exactly like real chocolate so be careful not to eat it!)

What I think so far…

This mask smells exactly like hot chocolate or chocolate pudding to me!! :) Seriously smells like you can drink or eat it out of the jar! The mask comes in a glass jar that’s actually quite solid and nice but a bit heavy. You wouldn’t want to drop this on your bathroom floor! The description claims the mask will brighten and cleanse. It actually reminds me of the Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask, which I love. I have high hopes for this mask because it is very similar in texture and smell.

Pure Smile Essence Mask – Milk Chocolate

Product Description

Replenish your complexion into a baby-face with this Chocolate Milk Mask rich in milk protein nutrients, cacao extracts, vitamin E, and collagen which all work to hydrate and smooth out uneven skin texture.

What I think so far…

At first I thought this was a Japanese face mask and I was like “Whaaat? Isn’t this suppose to be Korean beauty??” But then I looked at the packaging and it does say “Made in Korea”. hahahaa

By now you will see a theme. I go crazy for all things that smell like chocolate. So this mask is no exception. If it smells like chocolate I will enjoy every minute the mask is on my face. I don’t care if it doesn’t do what it says it will do!! I mean, I find it pretty hard to tell if skincare is any good after only one try.

Evas Vitamin Cleansing Dessert Magic Cream Soap – Coconut & Cacao Extract

Product Description

While some cleansers [have] large foam particles, excess vibration or friction can irritate the skin, this coconut and cacao-infused Cream Soap works gently yet thoroughly with micro foam particles that reach deeply into your pores leaving your face refreshed clean and smooth.

What I think so far…

This cleanser smells like chocolate milk too, but different. It smells like that last bit of chocolate milk you get at the bottom of the carton with all the gritty residue. haha.. so slightly residuey chocolate milk….. Maybe because of the coconut?? The texture of the cleanser is like a creamy mousse. After washing my skin felt smoother than before I washed my face.

What I think so far…

This scrub smells exactly like a piece of milk chocolate to me. All I have to say is…YUM. I don’t care if it doesn’t scrub. And to be honest, it doesn’t really scrub. But still, YUM.

 

 

6. Purederm Nose Pore 6 Strips Choco Cacao (6 pack)

Full size product: 6 pack ($6)

Pure

Purederm Nose Pore Strips – Choco Cacao

Product Description

This Nose Pore Strip Choco Cacao is a one-step  pore care treatment specifically designed to unclog excess blackheads, whiteheads, dirt and oil piled up in your pores. You’ll feel dramatic difference after just one use.

What I think so far…

I don’t really like nose pore strips because when I peel it off it feels like I’ve stuck masking or packing tape to my face. It hurts! But in the name of “chocolate” I decided to give these a try. And then hmmm.. I’m confused. It doesn’t smell like chocolate at all to me. Kinda smells chemically if you really sniff the strip. I was so hoping it would smell like chocolate cos it will be sitting on my nose for 10-15 minutes. All that chocolate yummy smell!! But yeah, unfortunately it doesn’t smell like chocolate. Maybe it’s Choco Cacao because it has cacao extract in it… :(

 

What I think of the Box

This is my favourite Memebox to date. I really love chocolate anything. So this is right up my alley. Except for the nose strips they all smell sooooo good. The chocolatey smell just makes using everything so much more enjoyable. Sigh…. Chocolate with no calories :) Though one thing I would have liked to see was some cacao makeup. But I’m not complaining. I still love this box.
