I asked my mother to take off 10 cm, but I think she took more like 8.
Oh well.
I forgot to bring my camera, so she took pictures with hers.

It feels like I have hovered around knee length for years now. Whenever I grow into calf length, the ends get so crappy. But I also can't bring myself to take off a lot more.

You know your hair is getting long...
 ...When you get a trim and you can't even tell the difference!

More Memebox madness

I had two Memebox packages waiting for me when I came home from the last seminar. The first was the usual pink box in the usual pink bubble wrap. The second was two pink boxes together in a ordinary cardboard box.

Memebox Special #31 Earth & Sea Cosmetics

Ariul Spa Water 24 Hours Moisturizing Refreshing Mist
Sweet! I’ve been looking around for a new mist to go in my shoulder bag. I’ve been using Recipe by nature Spray Water Essence, which seems to be the Holy Grail product for half the bloggers who write about Memebox, but lately I’ve been wondering if I tolerate it. I seem to get some redness at my lower cheeks/jaw line after spraying it on. One golden and absolute rule I’ve learned from having sensitive skin: When in doubt, stop using the damn product.
It feels very light and refreshing. Has a nice scent too.

Dewytree Mineral Healthy Sun Cut Loose Powder
Hmm? Alright, why not? So far I’ve managed to avoid makeup products in my boxes fairly well, but since this is more of a skin perfecting tool than “makeup”-makeup, I might actually use this.
This is exactly why I go for the Memeboxes instead of an ordinary subscription boxes: Although Memeboxes sometimes are unpredictable (Like the OMG box that was widely recognised for not being OMG at all, or the Hair&body box that was a huge failure for me, or the shaving box that bloggers found didn’t have any actual shaving products at all) there is still a certain theme to them and you can avoid things you don’t want, such as too much makeup.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Elastc Pore Mask Cleansing Foam
…Spider extract?
The Pure Smile lip balm from the Vitamin box that I keep in my shoulder bag is awesome. It contains snail extract. It creeped me out to begin with, but the product is awesome enough to sway me. Maybe this will too.

Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack
Awesome. This is the stuff I wanted from this box! It smells fantastically intriguing.

Shara Shara Black Charcoal Mask
Awesome. This is the stuff I wanted from this box! I have a drawer full of moisturising sheet masks and now I have a single purifying one.

Tosowoong Super Aqua Cooling Gel
You know how some products just feels like quality? Like the materials are heavy and well made? This one does. Little bit out of season for cooling gel though! I might save this for next summer. Hmm!

Memebox #41: Jackpot box

The cardboard box with the two pink boxes in confused me a lot. Like, embarrassingly much. Neither contained a little product sheet like they usually did, so I crosschecked my order-list. The only one that had shipped out was the scrub-box and it left me really confused.
After way too much confusion I figured out it was the Jackpot box I had received, just distributed in two pink boxes.

I got the 4th place price (Along with 49 other buyers) box:

What I received:

Amini vitamin shower body soap bar
Bah. Now I have two of this exact bar soap. Same colour and everything.

Care Lily & Lilac fabric refresher
Now I have two fabric perfumes. Funny, I knew these things exist, but I never thought of buying one. Does anyone know if you can mix them in the last cycle of your laundry? I want to do that instead of spraying it on my clothes more or less randomly.

Carestory collagen ampoule 200
First thought of this: What a silly and gimmicky little thing trying to look like a medicine ampoule. Even has the right opening function with a membrane for sticking a syringe through.

Cotterang JJoyy Bubble Peeling Pad 
It seems to be an exfoliating pad. Will be fun to try one that bubbles!

Davi Napa Cream le grand cru
A super fancy tiny little cream. Something about this little thing just grinds my gears: It looks too adult, too serious, too fancy, too “You couldn’t afford the real size of me” (It’s a sample size, not full). I can’t wait to try this, notice the lack of effect and scoff at its fanciness. Yeah, I can be petty that way.

Evas Vitamin Sun Cream SPF38 PA++ 
I have one of these already and keep it in my shoulder bag. I’m not particularly impressed with this one: It seems very whitening and leaves a residue too thick for my skin type.
Still, the product looks more fun and less serious, so it will probably go into my bag when I’ve used the old one up.

Hair+ Velvet Nutri-Injection 
Some intense Googling later and I know that this is a conditioner that can also be used as a leave in conditioner. It would have been so much easier if I just had my little product card…!!
I will probably use it for my Nodosaurus at some time.

Iope essential facial oil
Sweet! I ran out of the last one. (Yea, you really shouldn’t do OCM with a fancy oil like this) Although I do have a backup since I bought two Iope boxes, I don’t complain about having a second one to store.

Iope lip & cheek
Now I have one I tested, one from the extra Iope box and one from the Jackpot box. This will go into my “Potential gifts”-pile.

Kan Skin Bioen Aqau essence
I really like essences. I’ve been using them a lot. They’re like creams, only lighter, but you still give your skin a nice boost. I’ve actually gone so far as to slap some essence on when I’m in the bathroom for non skincare purposes. Will look forward to this.

Luna Wonder Essential BB Founde SPF25
If this is anywhere near my skin tone, I will like this.

O’sulloc water +
This left me confused: The rest of the box is so focussed on skin care, and then they throw in a 3 piece sample of some diet water thingie? Yea, why not, but it feels really out of place.

T.P.O No-wash toner sheet
Cool. This will save me having to apply my toner to the cotton pad before using. Feels like there is a lot in here, so I hope the closing mechanism shuts tight so it doesn’t evaporate.

Tosowoong Timeshift toner
Very pretty bottle! Looking forward to try this.
