MEMEBOX: SUPERBOX #82 The Face Shop




Yup, another beauty box and yup another MEME box!  And another Superbox - i find these better value as you're guaranteed to get full sized products.

This was a lot cheaper than the previous box at $29 (approx £18), so the individual items cost A LOT less.  This one was done as a "value box set" where 2 boxes are done at a discounted price and sent together, so the postage was combined - sometimes a great way to get 2 boxes youre hankering after for cheaper!

This one is aimed mainly at the facial area - the only one that isnt is the body lotion.
MEMEBOX claims that "The Face Store" is globally recognised and globally famed, and loved by all ages and skin types.  It is one of Korea's premier cosmetics brand known to pursue excellent quality, style and innovation".....so let me show you!


As normal, the handy dandy info leaflet (ALWAYS keep!! Otherwise you wont know what the heck to do with some of the items!!!)


In comparison to the last box i got, this one holds a lot of the "cuteness" that is sometimes associated with Korea (think "Hello Kitty"!).......

Ok lets show you this box.....

The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Desert Lip Balm 6g ($8- approx £5).  
There were 3 types to have gotten - strawberry, orange or honey.  If you just look at the picture, i think its kinda obvious which one i got!!  Which i dont mind! It smells so like honey and sweet!!

This is supposed to melt onto dry, chapped lips instantly and create a moisture barrier over the top for preventing further dehydration.  This comes with a mini spatula to apply to lips!




Ok - TOTALLY love this, so cute and useful! This is The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Mini Pet Hand Cream 30ml ($6 approx £4).
I honestly am notsure which scent i got (maybe as ive got a cold!) but the choices were Baby Powder, Sweet Fruits, White Floral or Fruity Floral.  Whichever one i got - it smells nice, and a girl can never have too much hand cream! Especially one as cute as this!

This is meant to help replenish and soften dry roughened hands and is perfumed with fragrances that linger on your hands long after application.


This is Lovely Me:ex You&Eyes 05 Sand Brown 1.6g ($5 approx £3).

Not sure what to make of this to be honest, but i know i have to play around with my eyeshadows, so might include this one.

This is supposed to be "subtley glittering, easily blendable, long lasting and highly adhesive".  Applies smoothly and ca be used to create a natural, F/W smokey if mixed with other colours.





In a face box, of course you had to have a face cream!  This is The Face Shop Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Cream 50ml ($9 approx £6).
This is to help restore your skin's most natural and healthy glow.  Its packed with "intensively hydrating blend of calendula extracts and hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to prevent moisture loss and to firm up sagging skin".

To be applied at the end of a normal face cleansing routine.




I was surprised i liked this colour- there were 3 tones - Rose Cushion, Coral Cushion and Peach Cushion.  So i was expecting something way to heavy for my pale skin
The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex Pastel Cushion Blusher 5g ($7 approx £5).
"Easy to use and is a subdued silky finish that creates a more 3 dimensional for the look of a sharper jaw line and a rosier complexion.  Shimmery, satiny and radiant formula that provides an immediate perk me up finish!"



I was a little bewildered as to why this body cream was in the Face box! Again, The Face Shop and this is Milk Plus Calming Moisture Body Lotion (300ml) ($8 approx £5)

This is meant to soothe and nourish your body, moisturise and leave your skin silky soft and supple.









See how i mean a little different than the last?  It shows more of the cutie side of Korean make up that we sometimes expect.
Still some great items.  Total RRP of all items is  $43 (approx £27) so still over the price of the box.

Would i buy this one again....? Possibly not  Yes, i love the blusher and think the lipbalm and hand cream are extremely cute, but there was a hint of disappointment when i opened it, so thats what im judging my "would i by again" on.

But - this is just ONE of the boxes they do - if youve seen their site, you can see how many they have at any time, the variety - in cost and contents, so this might have been a great box for someone, but slightly disappointed which will probably put me off buying the next Face Shop box (and knowing my luck, will probably be great!!!).
