♡ MEMEbox Princess Edition #4 The Little Mermaid // Unboxing ♡


Aish! I am a little behind on what I originally had planned but I wanted to get these unboxings done and out of the way more than anything! I'm not going to lie, I hate waiting for things. Especially for things that I have purchased and you don't know what will be in them. At the MEMEboxes HQ, I think that they have some twisted fetish about seeing people squirm and wait for their products... ugh so mean!
Anyway, after months of waiting... three boxes turned up on my doorstep all within the space of a week huzzah!! The first one I had unboxed was the Princess Edition #4 - The Little Mermaid.

#1 Pureplus+ Bentonite Cleansing Soap
Product description; this cleansing soap brings together Bentonite clay from France and cocoon silk for optimizing its skin perfecting results as a deep cleanser. The Bentonite clay is packed with over 66 different kinds of natural minerals such as calcium, magnesium, germanium, and selenium which effectively yet gently removes unnecessary dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from the skin. Together with the cocoon silk - known to be the most similar ingredient to our skin's innate protein - this clay soap leaves skin soft and moist without causing dehydration.
First impressions; I'm actually allergic to most soap bars (and many soap products) over here in UK - I can't remember the ingredient but my searches are limited - and so I'm a little cautious about trying this product, especially as it is meant to be a face cleanser, as I don't really want to have a burning red rash all over my face... we'll see, I'll have to do a skin test first and hope for the best!

#2 DD'ell Extra Vitalizing Serum
Product description; This extra vitalizing serum is formulated with algae extract and galactomyces ferments both rich in  various minerals, vitamins and amino acids. Algae is also known as a miracle natural ingredient from the ocean because it boosts great life force and power growth, for it grows over a meter each day. Nutrition-rich extracts from the algae act as strong antioxidant, anti-allergic, and moisturising agent. Its formula is also free of 12 chemical ingredients such as paraben, artificial colouring, benzophenone, formaldehyde, paraffin, BHT, and triethanolamide.
First impression; this does seem interesting. At first when you look at the product, you will think that it's some highly chemical produced product from the top end of the market but the fact that, yes it is a little high in price ($42) but it's got the main known chemicals out of it. It's hard to keep looking around for a product without paraben in it and even though I'm not as aware of it as I should be.... I do try my best. It'll be interesting to see how this particular product turns out after a few weeks of using in my daily routine.

#3 Grinif Collagen Aqua Peeling Gel
Product description; Multi-action enzymes along with cellulose effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion without drying, irritating, or causing undue stress to skin. It removes impurities and de-congests clogged pores for a youthful, radiant look.
First impressions; This is one weird container for a peeling gel... but there must a reason behind it to use such a design? I'm always interested in products to try that don't dry out my skin and it says in the description that it doesn't do that so this one shall certainly be put through the test to check out that theory.

#4 dearberry Pure & Popular White Clay Pack
Product description; Amazon white clay deeply cleanses sebum and skin impurities piled up in the pores and tightens up enlarged pores while organic aloe vera extracts soothe and moisturise the skin. This gentle wash-off clay pack will leave your skin feeling silky, soft and flawless.
First impressions; YAY CLAY PACK!!! Clay packs are my life savers and after running out of my recent one (Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Clay Pack) this is a godsend to me! I suffer from very large pores around / on my nose and in certain areas around my chin so clay packs honestly work for me and I'm excited to see if this one will do the job like my previous one!

#5 Mizon Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream
Product description; moisturises, nourish, relieve, and firm up dry, dulled complexion with Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream. This facial cream consists over 30% hyaluronic acid otherwise known as 'moisture magnet', effectively pulling and locking in moisture and nutrition. Various natural ingredients, oil and ceramide also work to hold in the moisture and to soothe sensitive, stimulated skin. Its gentle formula is free of paraben, artificial colouring, and artificial fragrance.
First impressions; I have heard of Mizon products and have only dipped my toe in with a couple of things but I'm excited to test out this one as it is, again, paraben free as well as low in artificial products. I just hope this definitely lives up to what it's saying and will help keep my skin balanced in the moisturised section as well as not irritating my sensitive skin!

#6 Pure Smile Original Mask Sheet in Seaweed
Product description; pamper your skin with an essential mask sheet enriched with a blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, collagen, and seaweed or pearl extracts straight from the ocean.
First impressions; a Japanese mask product amongst Korea products? Uhhh ok? But, I did just find out today though that Pure Smile may be a Japanese product but it is made in Korea, hence the linking of these products... interesting right? I love Pure Smile anyway and it definitely does what it says on the packaging and I have never had a bad product from them before so I'll be enjoying this mask one day that is for sure!
Now interestingly again, all products were full sized which was quite a nice surprise... I just wish I'd felt the same way about a couple of the actual products given though. First off, I am happy with about 90% of the facial products involved in this box but it's just the bar of soap... super random to me and it just feels a little... I don't know thrown in there? I like the theme of having products from the ocean and ingredients that help keep your skin soft and moisturised but I was expecting a little more pizazz from this box? Princess..... Mermaid.... hints there?

Thanks for reading!


  1. What a lovely box! I like the items you received :D I do agree with you though, it's not very mermaid-y..

    Dannie x

  2. This looks like a nice box~ I haven't heard of any of the products
    It would've been interesting if they also included some sort of mermaid-like makeup (turquoise eyeliner?) Otherwise all the skincare gets sort of boring, I think

  3. I think the only mermaid product is the seaweed thing? Haha
    Very lax on the theme which dissappoints me, but otherwise the products looks nice!
