Review: Memebox Special #42 OMG 3!

OMG 3! Cheers to another memebox! I've been lucky enough to have memebox providing me boxes to review and this is the third one I've received, the last one being the Special #33 K-Style 2 (see my review here!) which was my favorite of the two boxes I've tried so far. My first memebox was the OMG 2 which was all skincare (see my review here!) The OMG 3 like the other OMG boxes are suppose to bring the cool, weird, trendy and inventive products to us!

This box definitely has some great products! I've been testing everything the last 10 days and some products have really been beyond awesome, I did have trouble with one product otherwise this is a really interesting and worth while box! I've summarized all descriptions and usage info but you can see the full details on the card included in the box!

Continue below for my review!
Memebox Special #42 OMG 3!
Memebox Special #42 OMG 3: On the Body Makgeolli Soap, Cleomee Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist!
Memebox Special #42 OMG 3: Migabee Bee Venom & Honey Cream, Tonymoly Delight Tint Crayon 06 Neon Pink, Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack!
Memebox Special #42 OMG 3: The box once opened minus the description card! Everything so neatly packed with care!
On the Body Makgeolli Soap! (Shop the product here)
Description: "Makgeolli is a milky white rice wine made from fermented rice, wheat, and water, and it has been the oldest alcoholic beverage in Korea." It has also become a trend among younger generations in Korea because of the healthy/beauty benefits!

How to use: After washing your face with lukewarm water, use this bar to create a slight lather in the hands and massage your face! You can use the bar on the face as well to massage before rinsing it off!

I was super eager about this product as I know about Makgeolli as it is a rice wine drink very popular in korea. Brands like SKII also use the by products of rice/sakae making! This is a full sized product and is a flattened round shape. If you know what rice milk smells like, that plus a slight alcoholic/medicinal scent is what this soap smells like. 

The smells does not last after you've washed this product off. Applied onto wet skin, I've used this on my face and body but I prefer using it on my body. This lathers up slightly and does not feel greasy at all. Once rinsed off the skin feels tighten and super cleansed. I really enjoyed this product and can see how this could help someone with oilier skin!

Cleomee Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist! (Shop the product here)
Description: This is a 'three layer' oil and mist made of Donkey oil and milk. This spray provides instant moisture and donkey milk has goodness that is better than cow's and even goat's milk.

How to use: Shake the bottle to mix all three layers and then spray from 15-20cm away from the skin! This is to be used on the body!
This is meant to be used on the body and my experience has been positive! Despite the product having the name 'Donkey', this smells amazing! This smells like a sharp and sweet scent, nothing smelly or milky or musky! The best thing is that although this is an oil product once on the skin it feels super light and non-greasy.

I used my fingers to lightly rub it into my arm after spraying and my skin feels moist and dewy but not oily at all. The scent also fades quite quickly. I would totally use this after a shower on fresh skin all over my arms as that's where I have dryer skin. A very ingenious product, it's definitely an 'OMG' product.
Migabee Bee Venom & Honey Cream (Shop the product here)
Description: This cream is "rich in bee venom, royal jelly, propolis, and honey", it is meant to moisturize, brighten and treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face!

How to use: Apply an even layer all over the face or you can mix a drop of oil or ampoule with this cream and use it for an over night pack!

This cream was something I was very very excited about! I have been wanting to try BB creams and products with bee propolis but haven't yet. This product however doesn't smell like a typical sweet honey. It smells like a deep dark honey with cream and it has a slight woody medicinal scent. It's not unpleasant at all to me and I really like the light whipped textured.

This product although a cream is very light in texture and has a far more moist feel than a normal cream. It blends in super easily and is very moist and light feeling. It absorbs well but not completely over night. I used this product for 4 nights in a row and no other new skincare or make up products. After the 3rd night I saw two small pimple like bumps forming and I thought I'd give it another night but after that I had more smaller bumps and I stopped testing this cream.

I know it's not my period as I'm a month away from having it and I usually get an average of 1 or 2 pimples a month but at a certain time. I wasn't using anything else new and I rarely have negative reactions but I believe this cream caused my skin to have the small pimples. Due to this I can't say this product is good in it's effect.

Hopefully other people don't get this effect as bee related products are very popular and it's too bad I couldn't enjoy this!

Tonymoly Delight Tint Crayon 06 Neon Pink (Shop the product here)
Swatches of Tonymoly Delight Tint Crayon 06 Neon Pink
 Description: "Tonymoly presents you with the one and only Delight Tint Crayon that makes your lips glow-in-the-dark! It shows as a lovely pink under the daylight, but under the strobe lights, your lip will turn into a hot neon pink!"

How to use: Apply on lips from the tube! Multiple applications for a full, radiant lip effect!

I was super excited when I saw this product! It was definitely an 'OMG' because of the color! I'm a big fan of bold pinks and I don't have a crayon lip pencil in this exact color! I've seen so many great products from Tony Moly but I haven't tried any yet. This crayon has such cute packaging and is a great size.

At first when I tested this the tip melted right off! It's probably because of the heat from being packed and traveling so I stuck this in the fridge and over night it's solid again and stays that way at room temperature! The color of this product is literally as described "neon pink". It's not only a barbie pink but a glowing type pink! I didn't get to test this out in the dark but it's crazy bright and so lovely.

This lip crayon is super moist and I applied it in thin layers with a brush and from the crayon. The color builds to opaque very easily and the color stays even and feeling moist for a few hours before you need to slightly touch up. I really like how it stains evenly and doesn't dry out the lips!

You do not need a lip liner at all with this product! It stays within the lip lines very well and blotting in between layers also helps a lot! This color is not for the shy, it's super neon pink and beautiful!

Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack (Shop the product here)
 Description: This controls dull skin and oily skin from 'blackhead overload', this is infused with 'platinum gold power and tea tree oil' which not only tightens but removes impurities and blackheads! This is a powerful but is can be used with sensitive skin!

How to use: "Cleanse skin and pat dry with towel. Evenly distribute the contents onto face avoiding eye and mouth area and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water."

This is a super start product! I thought I'd used different wash off pore packs before and all were okay but weren't amazing but after this, "OMG" it is freaking amazing!

This  face mask seems to be made of a reddish clay and it comes out as a cool feeling paste. There's a slight muddy/clay like smell and it spreads super easily and isn't thick. I used a foundation paddle brush and spread out a good amount all over my face avoiding the eye and mouth area. 

I find the best way to apply this is with a flat brush as this product dries very very quickly compared to other similar products unless you want to simply spot apply to the nose, cheek or pimples.

Using Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack! Photo of immediate application and about 80% dried! This product dries super quickly! So work fast, sit back and enjoy!

Within about 10-12 minutes my entire application was completely dried up! My face felt soooo tight and I couldn't smile, laugh or move my face without causing the dried pore pack to crack! Up close there's what seems to be little circles of oil that have been absorbed into the clay on my nose.

This product easily washes off with water and rubbing with your fingers and afterwards my skin felt so tight, smooth and my pore on my cheeks were visibly smaller! It also helped flatten two small pimples that were coming out! It's amazing! I've since used this as spot treatment for oily areas and my nose!

Memebox Special #42 OMG 3!
Paid: Sent to me from Memebox! (This box retailed for $29 USD and shipping is $6.99) This box is currently available on their website!

Recommend: Yes, this box definitely has some superb products! The pore pack, soap bar and the lip crayon are winning products!

Repurchase: Yes, I am definitely interested in getting more boxes! I would love to get the Cutie Pie Marzia Box 2 and the WTF Wonderful Treasure Finds box!

Bottom line: This box although mostly skincare focused has a few super products. If you don't have particularly sensitive or reactive skin you should be fine with the three products that are to be used on your face! This box is definitely for those who have normal-oilier skin and who want to try a mix of products!
