Memebox Global #12 Unboxing!

Hello everyone!
I am back with another Memebox haul, and I'm super excited about it! I've already begun using some of the products.

I have acquired an unhealthy addiction to this site. I'm always tempted to buy the new released they come out with. The new Iope Superbox, I want it so damn badly!! Someone please restrain me, or I WILL spend my entire paycheck on this website.

But I mean, can you blame me? The boxes are so affordable, you get at least 3 full sized items and deluxe samples... The box is just great!

Anyway, let's take a look at what I received from this box:

Smith's Rosebud Salve Review

Hello hello! I've been rather M.I.A lately. I went on a week vacation at the end of June, and when I came back, the internet was down >< story of my life.
On the bright side, I was able to watch the Canada Day fireworks from my window at home. Hope everyone had a good Canada Day and 4th of July!

On my vacation, I went on a little shopping rampage. Mostly for dried food, though I did make some really exciting purchases!
One of them, being Smith's Rosebud Salve. I've heard a lot of good things about this product. I don't have a Sephora back in my hometown or anywhere close to where I'm working this summer either. I stopped by Sephora while on my vacation, and I decided to pick this lip salve up.

Though I'm not really a huge fan of lip balms where I have to use my fingers to apply, (less sanitary) but with everyone recommending this, I figured I'd give it a try.

Memebox - Luckybox #5 Unboxing

I'm about 2 weeks late with this post, as I received this package a while ago. But better late than never right?

I hadn't heard of Memebox until end of April or so. I read about it from a fellow blogger. I love the concept of receiving a number of different skincare and makeup items to try out. Similar to Glossybox or Ipsy, Birchbox etc. I find Memebox to be far more superior. Not only do you get some full sized items and deluxe samples, all products are solely Korean. 
Granted, you are paying a lot more than $10 for Ipsy or Birchbox, Memebox gets you more 'bang' for your buck. You also have the chance to choose which box you want and interests you the most, whereas the other monthly boxes, you are subscribed to a monthly service and some of them are a hit and a miss. 

Anyway, onto Memebox haul. I ended up ordering Luckybox #5. 

Let's take a further look at my goodies!

Broadway - imPress Press-on Manicure Nail Review

Hello hello! As you may know, I have settled into my new place for the summer. Work hasn't been too busy, and I have been shopping way too much for my own good. When the days are slow, I browse different clothing websites. I buy more than I can use, but regardless, I still buy more and just hoard it in my room. Eventually, I will become a hoarder. A crazy cat lady AND a hoarder. 

Well anyway, I signed up with this community called influenster. It's a website where a variety of people post their reviews and experiences on different products. Every time you write a post, you build up points towards not only your social media presence, but also particular badges you can unlock on your profile. The more reviews you write, the higher your influence will be. 
I was lucky enough to be eligible for the imPress Manicures by Broadway. They sent me two of their products to review.

The imPress Manicures boast:
  • No drying time
  • Superior lasting shine
  • Easy removal
  • Lasts up to a week
  • Salon results
Let's see if they do just that!

Kao - Essential Damage-Care Nuancy Airy Hair Mask

I never really bothered too much about caring for my hair. Not until I had a lot of dandruff, especially during the winter, and my hair became frizzy and static. I have yet to try hair serums, but I have been addicted to this hair mask!

I had read about this mask about 5 years ago on Xiaxue’s blog. If you don’t know who she is, she’s a really famous Singaporean blogger. She’s not as frequent with her posts anymore, and the brands she endorses don’t interest me as much, but when I read about the hair mask, I knew right then I wanted it. At the time, I was not an avid online shopper. So anything I wanted overseas, the best place to search was the over-priced Asian stores in Toronto. Luckily! My Aunt brought over the Essential Rich Primer hair mask for me to try, and it was love from then on.

Sasa, The Face Shop and Bath and Body Works Candle Haul

Hello everyone! 

I just moved into my summer workplace, and I didn't have internet for a week, so I couldn't post last Sunday. I also didn't have water for a couple days... really makes you appreciate the little things. 
But anyway, I am back with internet! 

When I was packing for my move, I tried to stock up on as much as I could. My second suitcase is filled with my backups. 4 boxes of The Face Shop cotton pads, night creams, day creams, serums, so much! I'm surprised I managed to fit as much as I did. 

The few things I bought/ordered:
