Well I was going to save my Memebox reviews for Mondays, however due to a delay at Canadian customs (grr argg), I didn't receive them until Monday. I didn't want to rush out a post just to get something up so now you get to read it for a Wednesday post ^_^ I was able to spoil myself by looking at the other lucky ones post their own pics and reviews of the boxes but that didn't lessen my own excitement for these two boxes. Since I got two boxes at once, I will post a seperate review for each. Otherwise that's going to get really wordy and long.
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. They offer multiple kinds of theme boxes so it makes things easier if you want to try something specific. But don't worry, they've got boxes that are random if you are looking for more of a widespread of products. Or you want to get it for someone as a gift.

My thoughts? Cute minimal packaging and jar. Haven't had a chance to test it out but I will be sure to do so. Will try it out to see what I think about it??

My thoughts? Back off. This is MINNNNEEEEEE *cough* Errr I mean, I love sugar face/body scrubs so excited to try this one. Was satisfied with what I used in the past and happy to see this in my box :) But in case anyone is curious about what it looks like against skin...
Skinfood Egg White Pore Meringue Foam
An auto-pump foaming cleanser that gently cleanses skin and pores with luxuriant, meringue-like foam. Egg White is loaded with albumin that consists of amino acids
Retail Price: $13 US
Size: 200 ml
My thoughts? This product intrigues me, not gonna lie. I'm curious to see how it ends up working for me. I think that will be the deciding factor on what I do with it. I have used it once before going to bed and it did have a nice clean smell and my skin felt nice when I was done. Try it out and see what I think
Choco eyebrow powder cake
Formulated with cacao extracts, thie Choco Eyebrow Poder Cake carries two naturally blending grey, khaki, or brown shades for shaping and defining fine arches with an easy sweep (from information card)
Retail Price: $5
My thoughts?There were two colours you could get: 01 Grey Khaki Black or 02 Grey Brown. I got the Grey Brown one but I find them to be more light brown and dark brown. Lovely colours and glad I was able to get this one. Perfect cute compact with a mirror. Would be excellent for carrying around in the purse while on the go. And guyz, it REALLY does smell like chocolate!!! :D I saw bloggers talking about it and thought they were just leg pulling but nope. Its true!!! I'm gonna keep this one!!
Tomato Whitening Toner
Product Description (from Global Skinfood website)
This skin-brightening toner containing arbutin and tomato extract rich in lycopene, vitamins, and minerals makes dull skin clear and blemish-free, improving skin tone.
Retail price: $17 US
My thoughts? Personally, toners aren't my thing so I probably will see if any of my friends are interested in having it, however it seems like a good product and people have had good results from it. I'm gonna see if I can pass it on
If you're curious about the product, here is a link to a more indepth review and the reviewer's thoughts and opinions about it after using it for two weeks
Overall I am pretty pleased with this box ^_^ Hopefully Memebox will restock this for other people to buy or offer another Skinfood box down the road. Definitely something I would recommend buy if you have the chance too. Total value of the box is $57, 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.
