I’m back with another Memebox, y’all! It’s been a few months, I think. This was a must buy for me…which if you made internet forum round back when Memebox shipped internationally, you may find strange. I have been shopping with Memebox for a long time now, since February 2014. I have purchased way more little pink boxes than I would like to admit. Back in these days, I remember forums loudly groaning when ANYTHING Shara Shara was involved. I think this was mostly due to their makeup being, well…not that good, honestly. Outside of Memebox, I never heard a damn thing about Shara Shara, until the release of their All in One Honey Bomb. Rave reviews and two subsequent bombs followed, in Berry and Aqua flavors. This was why I HAD to buy this box. This box was only $33. The bombs retail for (an inflated) $40 from shops here in the US! Plus, I had points and a coupon, so I only ended up spending $20 and some change on this beauty!
I waited to try the items in the box a few times before I started this review. I wanted to be able to give an honest review on the bomb. So let’s begin, shall we?
Item #1: Berry Berry Wonderful Cleansing Sherbet Memeprice: $16 (currently $14 on memebox.com although sold out.)
Besides the bomb, I was really looking forward to trying this out. I have been wanting to try and cleansing sherbet for a while, but have never been able to bite the bullet. (I tried using straight mineral oil to oil cleanse and had contact dermatitis. Since most cleansing sherbets have mineral oil as their top ingredient, I have been reluctant to purchase one) So first impressions. This was melted when I got it. It was delivered in August, of course everything was going to be melty.
I immediately loved the way it smelled though. Like strawberry milk or bouquet of candy. It is seriously wonderful smelling. Once it solidified, I used it. I massaged it a little while (like a minute) and got grits! I should add that I had combination skin that is very prone to clogs. I usually have a good sized blackhead at any time. This made one of my blackheads pop right out! It was amazing. I am really, really happy with this cleanser, and totally recommend it!
Item #2 Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub Memeprice $8 (currently $5 on memebox.com although sold out.)
I got this in a Cute Box last year.
I haven’t used it all up yet. It’s a decent lip scrub. I do use it when I want to exfoliate my lips, but you don’t need a whole lot. There is a good amount of sugar in it, so I only need a TINY bit. This is how much I have used since October 2014.
Because it’s been about a year, and I used my fingers to scoop it out, I may toss this and start the new one. Overall, it’s a decent scrub for a good price.
Item #3 Black Source Eye Sunglass Memeprice $3 (currently $2 on memebox.com although sold out.)
I thought this mask was super cute! Sunglasses mask, eh? I’m totally down! AND you could totally cover your eyes like sunglasses!
This mask was refreshing, but I had to lift the eyelip flaps after 5 minutes or so. It moisturized my eye area (and above and below. Seriously, it was a HUGE eye mask!) pretty darn well. And it’s stupidly cute!
Item #4: Honey Bomb All in One Ampoule Memeprice $30 (currently $40 on memebox.com although sold out. You can still buy the Berry Bomb though!)
This item was a random choice between honey and berry, but it seems like most people got honey. I would’ve been okay with either, but I was admittedly hoping a little bit for berry. I am super pleased with honey too though! This ampoule itself is honey colored, and smells a bit like beer I think.
It’s not a strong scent, so I’m not totally sure if that is what my nasal passage is picking up. There is a serious amount of ampoule, and it needs to be used in a year after opening.
It also comes with that sweet spatula in the photo. I have been using it every day since I got this box. My skin feels nice and soft, but my (very) dry areas are still dry. I don’t think that I could use just this product, and moisturizer, especially in the Winter. I like it, but I don’t think it would work as advertised for me. It does help when used in conjunction with my entire routine.
Item #5: Water Girl Ice Cream Memeprice: $18 (currently $20 on memebox.com although sold out.)
This was also pretty melty when I got my box.
This is the only item in the box I haven’t been using consistantly. I have been patch testing it, but I think this is something I want to save for colder months. It smells kind of medicinal, but in a really pleasant way. Its a really pretty blue, and has an almost cold cream consistancy.
This absorbs surprisingly well without being sticky at all. It’s a very nice cream overall. I almost look forward to cold weather so I can use this! Also, in Shara Shara fashion, the container is flipping adorable!
This box was really well curated, and a GREAT deal. It, along with every freaking item in it, is sold out at Memebox. My fingers are crossed, hoping they will restock AT LEAST the sherbet. If they restock this box, buy it immediately! It is the best box in a long time.
Thanks for reading!
