Tester Korea, test haul

So Memebox went… Yea, I don’t know actually… Pouf?
Rumour among the other (former) Memebox-bloggers is that Memebox stopped shipping to countries that doesn’t have a Memebox-warehouse. Which makes no sense, since they just ship out pre-packaged boxes with no individual variations anyways.
This is something that pisses me off a lot. If people are willing to pay for the shipping anyways, why would a seller/company decide on who they will sell to? You can’t convince me that it’s not worth their time and effort to ship worldwide.
Anyways. Memebox screwing over their international buyers pissed a lot of people off. I’m mostly indifferent. Memebox mostly ended up as a “Meh.” for me and I would buy the boxes, hoping it would be better than it was.

So, anyways. The former Meme-bloggers had some different recommendations out there, and I decided to give a shot.

The packing...

Sturdy box and they had put some effort into getting it around customs. I like! Having to pay just to get my already paid for-package into the country is always really irritating.

Good packaging inside too. Very well protected. Plus point for that.

3 nail polishes for free as a gift for me. Very nice! Even has a little sticker with “Thank you” on it. This is the kind of stuff I really like when I buy something. I mean, I could easily take my money elsewhere, but a little gift like this makes me feel really appreciated as a customer.

So that’s 3 points out of 3 already:
  • Sturdy, protective packaging
  • An effort to get me out of paying extra in customs
  • A nice little free extra

Nice bodylotion and bodywash set.

Lots of hand masks. I really like those and I should use them more.

Foot masks. I’ve been meaning to try more masks than just for my face and these seems to be a good place to start.

Facial sheet masks!

A Skinfood tester kit for whitening skin. I’m going to try it for the ugly scars on my shins and see if it makes a difference. If it does, I might get some more.

Two Iope tester kits. I loved the Iope products I’ve tried so far, but the blue set turned out to be way too moisturising for me and made me irritated and itchy. My skin doesn’t like products that are too moisturising and heavy.

Innisfree is an eco-friendly brand that is pretty popular among the K-beauty bloggers. I got a body lotion, a moisturising spray, hand cream, oil cleaner, foam cleanser, toner, essence and lotion in the green tea line.

Benton! One of my favourites. Toner x 2, essence x 2 and sheet masks.

The Yeon toner, essence and hand cream.

Assorted: Banilas Claypatra. On a whim, I tried it for the enlarged pores on my shins and it worked wonders for that, so now I got myself some more. A Sekretkey eyecream with snail filtrate in. I really like that one as well. Etude Houses baby choux base in mint. I really liked that one too: It’s a green tinted primer and it’s really good for my skintone.

My only hair purchase this time: A huge tub of Toneymoley leave in-conditioner. It was pretty cheap so I got it. The positive is that it is good for shine, but the bad is that it makes my hair tangle. Hmm. I’ll be using it up slowly, just adding some pumps to my ordinary leave in-conditioner mix.

The full haul.
Right after unpacking, I realized that the one product I actually needed was lip balm. Doh.
