Time for box #2 of this double whammy. Now I will get the chance to talk about Superbox #82 The Face Shop.
Disclaimer: No one is paying me for this review. I paid with my own money for these boxes so the thoughts/opinions here are my own. I would say something snappy about if Memebox wanted to send me free boxes to review, I would gladly do it but I am Canadian and those things seem to happen more often to Americans :/ Boo

The nice thing about Memebox is that you have greater control over what you may end up getting.

What was in the box?
Calendula Eden Essential Moisture Cream
A highly concentrated cream that has calendula extracts, camellia oil, shea body butter and hyaluronic acids keeps the skin elastic and moist. Suitable for all skin types, it is especially suitable for dry skin, skin with acne scars, and sensitive skin.
Retail Price: $9 US
My thoughts? Another cute petite-size jar. Not sure if I will use it long term or how it’ll react with my skin but I am willing to give it a go. I tried it before going to bed when I got it and the next morning my face did feel nice and soft. Will see
Lovely me:ex Pastel Cushion Blusher
This easy to use blush creates a subdued silky finish that creates a more 3 dimensional face for the look of a sharper jaw line and rosier complexion. Its shimmery, satiny, and radiant formula leaves an immediate perk-me-up finish that brightens up your face.
Retail Price: $7 US
My thoughts? Mine was randomly selected from 01 Rose Cushion, 02 Coral Cushion, 03 Plum Cushion, 04 Pink Cushion, and 05 Peach Cushion. Overall I found the packaging to be very cute and adorable and would be a great present to give to a young girl or one young at heart. However the colour is too pale and just disappears into my skin. I think the Rose or Coral one would have been a better colour as it would have stood out more. That’s the risk you take with boxes that randomly select your colours I suppose ^_^; Cute and adorable but not my tone. Will have to find someone else to give it to
Lovely Me:ex Mini Pet Hand Cream
Replenish and soften dry, roughened hands with this adorable packaged min hand cream perfumed with a variety of fruite and floral fragrances that linger on your hands long after application.
Retail Price: $6 US
My thoughts? Another randomly selected one. I got the cat Fruity Floral. Adorable jar but seems like average hand cream that I have plenty of already. Nice floral scent but nothing to really write home about. Cute but not for me. Gonna find a good home for this one
Lovely Me:ex Dessert Lip Balm
A mini jam-like dessert lip balm that comes in three options - strawberry jam, orange marmalade, and jarful of honey. It'll melt onto dry, chapped lips instantly and create a moisture barrier of top for preventing further dehydration.
Retail Price: $8 US
My thoughts? I GOT THE HONEY ONE!!!! When I was reading other unboxing reviews, I held out the hope that I would be getting the honey pot. AND MY DREAMS CAME THROUGH!!!! Its so adorable and petite and I love that it comes with a mini honey stick to apply the balm with. I love love love THIS SO MUCH. I am keeping this and there is nothing you can do to STOP ME!!
Lovely Me:ex You & Eyes in 05 Sand Brown
Silicon coating powder leaves moisturizing and smooth touch without flakes ~ silky touch texture enhances adherence ~ jewel-like glowing pearl that delivers transparent and sophisticated shimmer ~ sebum control powder absorbs sebum to remain for hours.
Retail Price: $5 US
My thoughts? A girl can never go wrong with sparkly brown eye shadow in her collection :D Or glittery eye shadow in general
Milk Plus Calming
Moist Body Lotion Moisture Cream Shower
Soothe and nourish the body with The Face Shop's Milk Plus Calming Cream Shower. Gentle enough to use even on the most sensitive types of skin, this soothing cream wash cleanses and moisturizes the body to leave the skin silky soft, supple, and milky-white
Retail Price: $8 US
Size: 300 ml
My thoughts? It seems that on a lot of the information cards (maybe all??) it was listed as the body lotion, despite it being the shower cream, but Memebox did email out updated information cards with the proper instructions. I wasn’t too heartbroken either way. Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet but this seems like a good product to treat your skin to while you’re having a shower :D High hopes but will try it out
Like the Skinfood box, I feel very satisfied with this box and hope that Memebox will restock this for other people to buy or offer another box down the road. Definitely something I would recommend buy if you have the chance too. Total value of the box is $42, which is on the low end of scale compared to other Memeboxes but it is filled with a lot of practical products that some people could use on a daily basis.
