Memebox: Banila Co. and Citrus Care

Hmm. Memebox has a new design for the superboxes. I guess it shouldn’t bother me, but I dislike the random, big splotch of black in the middle of it.
“Delivering beauty everyday”

Memebox Superbox #69: Banila Co.
First of all, I’m confused at this being called a superbox when it came in the smallest box. Am I wrong in thinking that the superbox should be the largest box?
How odd. Are the special boxes larger?

Banila Co. Clean it zero
100 ml + a free sample size 7 ml ($22)
This is a cream cleanser that came with a little paper describing how awesome it is. Bleah. I hate non-foamy cleaners, so this is going directly into my sell/trade/gift-pile.

Banila Co. Prime primer classic
30 ml ($22)
I’ve never actually owned a primer before, so this will go into my makeup drawer and will be tested pretty soon. Cool!

Banila Co. Claypatra facial scrub
120 ml ($15)
Silly punny name. None the less it sounds good; it contains mud from the Dead Sea.

Banila Co. Eye love gel liner natural black
5 g ($11)
I’m going to try this. Black won’t be a good colour for my pale colours, but none the less I can probably make it work if I put some effort into it.

Banila Co. Glam muse luster lipstick in LPK 569
3½ g ($14)
Seriously confused by the name of the colour. I got the darkest one; a sort of burgundy  tone with some pink in it (I think?) I never wear lipstick so this goes in my sell/trade/gift-pile.

Banila Co. Vanilla tint balm pink illusion
5 g ($5)
I’ve already expressed my dislike for lipbalms and tints that comes without applicators. What am I supposed to do? Carry a little brush with me as well? Or just dip a finger directly into the balm and wipe the excess off on my pants? Usch. Sell/trade/gift-pile.

3 things that goes directly into the sell/trade/gift-pile.
2 things that made me go “Yay.
1 thing that made me go “Sure, why not?”
I guess overall this is a “Meh.” box for me.

Memebox Special # 51: Citrus care
This was the largest box. So, special-boxes are the largest? Or is it just random?

Unni Recipe vitamin recharger essence
55 ml ($18)
6 different vitamins, lemon extracts, orange extracts, grapefruit extracts and lime extracts. Not bad. I’m not using an essence for my night care at the moment, so I will add this one to the routine.

Tonymoly clean dew red grapefruit foam cleanser
180 ml ($4)
Is this a typo or is it a very cheap product? Huge tube that was even slightly folded in the top to fit in the box. It smells delicious: Like real grapefruit instead of artificial. I ill put this to use after I run out of the Milkypiggy charcoal cleanser.

The Yeon all day sun cream SPF 50 PA +++
50 ml ($17)
This contains a bunch of extracts, but I’m slightly worried about it containing aloe vera too. However, it also says it doesn’t have a whitening effect! This is good, because the Vitamin sun cream I otherwise liked and use, really leaves a white tint behind that washes all colour out of my face. I tried some on my hands and I haven’t had any reaction yet, so I guess it will go into my shoulder bag. It smells vaguely fresh and soapy.

Mizon refresh time grapefruit body wash
200 ml ($14)
Another product that smells awesome! I once bought a Palmolive bodywash that as supposed to wake you up in the mornings… Think it was called something along the lines of “morning tonic”? This could have been something like that too.

Vivito make-up starter intro
70 g ($35)
These are exfoliating little pads. I received something like this before and liked it. I’m guessing it’s the same principle: The pads have a rough, exfoliating texture but it also contains some essence or something that will be left on the skin afterwards.

Vivito painting sweet lip balm orange farm
12 g ($24)
24 $ for this stupid little lip balm? I kind of hope this is just another example of Memebox’es inflated prices. Sell/trade/gift-pile.

5 good products
1 for the sell/trade/gift-pile

Very nice. I like “inoffensive products” like this one contained. This is a good box.


  1. Maybe all those "special" and "super" labels refer to awesomeness of what's inside and limited number of boxes? Because there's no pattern in size :D

    1. LOL. You know what? I accept that explanation. ^__^

  2. Hi. are you in US? if that, I really want to buy/swap the banila cleanser and primer if you don't want those ^_^

    1. I live in Sweden but I can ship it to you if it covers the cost
      I actually already put the cleanser in my sell/trade page here:
      I used the primer and like it, so only the balmy cleansers are for sale :)
