New (to me) Korean Skincare and Makeup

Ever since I heard of Memebox, the company that curates different boxes with Korean makeup and skincare products, I was seriously interested in this idea. Finally a few weeks ago, after lurking around in some Memebox forums, I made the plunge. First I ordered a package deal that has two memeboxes in it. Then I caved and ordered the Cute Wishlist box. And finally, I purchased the Girls’ Night Out box (it’ll be my own birthday present to myself!). I think the first of them ships at the beginning of August, so you’ll be sure to see lots of posts then!

 

Until then, here is a sampling of the things that I have bought on my own.

I got an amazing sampler kit from this place. I know it looks a bit sketchy, but my ordered arrived with zero problems, and it only took about two weeks for me to get it. I made sure to pay with paypal instead of a credit card, just in case. I’m going to do a whole post just about the samples! That sounds crazy, but there are so many of them.

I also got this TonyMoly gel-type moisturizing cream. I love it. It has a light citrusy scent, but nothing that bothers my pretty sensitive facial skin. Usually it comes in a large tub, but I got this promo packaging from beautynetkorea.com. I wanted to try it without having to shell out the bigger bucks for a large tub of it. It does feel very wet when you first put it on, but as it soaks in, the texture feels very nice.

Great stuff.

Great stuff.

I got another TonyMoly product: Crystal Lovley (their spelling, not mine) Eyes. It’s a wonderful eyeliner/eyeshadow stick combo! If I put on eye primer before I use this, it seriously takes me twenty seconds to do my eye makeup. I love it!

That’s it for now. In the next post I’ll talk about all of the samples I got in the package from Eopenmarket.

 

Skip this next bit if you don’t want to hear my ramblings on beauty blogging.
Sorry I haven’t really been writing lately. Sometimes I see other people’s wonderful blogs that have hundreds of hits a day and it discourages me. I know I shouldn’t let it bother me, but that’s just part of my personality. I have some money to spend on these things, but only the things I really want; I can’t shell out money for the more popular boxes just to be able to review them for my audience. Plus I really like to show things that I truly like or have solid reasons for disliking instead of giving grand overviews of different subscription boxes. That’s more of my style. Thanks for reading this, and I hope you read the next installment on Korean skincare samplers!
