♡ MEMEbox Princess Edition #1 Snow White // Unboxing ♡


This is my first ever Memebox and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised. After months of seeing some of my favourite beauty bloggers post their boxes - some with amazing products whilst others being a little naff, but you can't always have something great - I thought it was finally time to dive in and get something and the Princess Edition boxes were a great way to start.
I only could get the one box at the time but I think I made the best choice out of the three. The first being Snow White - it's based around skincare / whitening products, the second box was Sleeping Beauty - this one being sleeping packs and other pieces and the third box was Rapunzel - hair products mainly. I like that they give a mixture of body and face products so you're not just stuck with a particular product based on a certain part of your body... But for now, onto the goodies from this particular box;

#1 Nella Fantasia One Day Whitener

Product description; this is a magically whitening body lotion that instantly moisturises and brightens up dry, coarse, and darkened skin tone for a lasting glow all day long. It's also non-sticky and strong against water and sweat.
First impressions; ok so I have (of course) heard of whitening products for you face but, a whitening product for your body?! Somehow, a part of me is surprised yet another part of me isn't as the Koreans seem to have pretty much every thing made cosmetic/beauty/skin care wise for every part of the human body... this will definitely be an interesting product to try to see if it does work. I think that if I do use this, I'll be using it on my neck slash collarbone slash shoulders slash arms region more than my whole body as those are the only part of my actual body - besides my face obviously - that have been on show for the general public to view the most.

#2 original raw First Essence (Vitamin Essence)

Product description; both the Red Essence and the Vitamin Essence are combinations of a skin toner, an essence, and a lotion all in one. Also, they're both enriched with various vitamin nutrients and dragon's blood extract from the dragon tree and work to instantly rejuvenate and brighten up the damaged or sagging skin.
First impressions; as I am not 100% sure what the Red Essence or the Vitamin Essence actually have difference wise... I'm pretty happy with getting the vitamin version. Even though in the description, it says that this product is a lotion it's more like an oil based cleanser instead and I am totally down for that as I have been into using oil cleansers more recently as they are super beneficial for my skin. I'm definitely going to do some more digging around to see the differences between each essence and see if it's worth getting the red essence as well in the near future.

#3 FACEFLUX Anti-Wrinkle Revitalizing Cream

Product description; enriched with ceramide, hyaluronic acid, lemon verbena extracts, shea butter and portulaca extracts, the Anti-Wrinkle Revitalizing Cream works to brighten up dulled complexion, to relieve stimulate or sensitive skin, and to treat signs of fine lines and wrinkles for a younger and healthier-looking complexion overall. 
First impressions; wrinkle cream............. I'm not even 25 yet and I've got wrinkle cream. Well, I can either get ahead of the game and use it or I might just go and give it to my mam to use instead, I'm sure she'll be happy to have a new wrinkle cream to use!

#4 Daltokki Whitening Essence

Product description; all you need is a single drop of Daltokki's Whitening Essence mixed with a facial cream for a whitening and moisturising effect, with a sunblock for creating the naturally brightened skin tone, and with a BB cream or foundation for creating the fully covered and perfectly toned up complexion.
First impressions; taking away the whole creepy little rabbit... man... thing on the bottle, this product is the one I was to use the most. The fact that it has multiple uses and you only need a drop or two each is something that I like because it means that you're not wasting a product so quickly for one effect. I'll definitely try this out with the options listed in the product description to see what pans out with it.

#5 Ipsennature 5 Seeds Apple Water Brightening Scrub

Product description; made from apple water, apricot, raspberry, walnut, rice, and corn seed powders, this Brightening Scrub is a cleansing scrub which works to gentle peel away all dead skin cells and skin impurities and deliver skin replenishing and brightening effects all in one!
First impressions; I guess you can never have too many facial scrubs in your skin care routine! It's lucky that I've recently run out of my favourite facial scrub and was about to purchase a new pot but I might as well put it off and use this one instead.

#6 Morningtree Revitalizing Whitening Deep Spot

Product description; excessive melanic pigmentation is responsible for darkened spots over your body - face, hands, arm pits, busts, elbows, knees, heels, and even the Y-zone. This high concentrate, gel-type essence will soothe,, cool, brighten, and repair such dry and darkned spots, and its suitable for all skin types and for both men and women.
First impressions; interesting. Most roller face products I have seen tend to be used for around the eye area and use only one roller per tube, the fact this one has three small rollers must mean that the product will be distributed easily and less pulling of the skin? I have no clue really but I'm interested that's for certain!

All in all, I love all the products I received in this beauty box (yes, even the wrinkle cream!) and I honestly now believe that Memebox is amazing value for your money. I have to admit, the biggest surprise of this box was the fact that every product was full sized. I know that you can get a mixture of full size and sample products but to pay $30 (plus shipping) and receive six full size products worth well over the $100 margin is just... wow, it is definitely worth the money. I even went ahead and purchased a few more boxes when they came out - I won't reveal which ones until I receive them!
