Memebox - Princess Edition #1 Snow White


As mentioned in my previous blog post, which was a review of the Memebox Princess Edition #3 Rapunzel (read here), I managed to talk myself out of purchasing of the third princess edition box - Sleeping Beauty. I still wish that it had some "disney"ish products in these boxes, but I guess the products included do relate to the Disney princesses the boxes are named after.
There are 6 full-sized products included in this box, all of which claim to whiten/brighten the skin. I paid USD$53.99 for both princess boxes including express postage.


1. Daltokki Whitening Essence - 100ml ($35)
"All you need is a single drop of Daltokki's Whitening Essence mixed with a facial cream for a whitening & moisturizing effect, with a sunblock for creating the naturally brightened skin tone, and with a BB cream or a foundation for creating the fully covered and perfectly toned up complexion.
How to use: Mix in a drop of the Whitening Essence with a cream, a sunblock or a BB cream for the effect you desire. Suitable for both facial and body application."

I cannot get over the "rabbit" face thing on the bottle. It's just so... freaky... It's like half human, half rabbit. 

2. Nella Fantasia Oneday Whitener - 120ml ($29)
"This is a magically whitening body lotion that instantly moisturizes and brightens up dry, coarse, and darkened skin tone for a lasting glow all day long. It's also non-stick and strong against water and sweat.
How to use: Apply an adequate amount of the lotion evenly over areas of your body you wish to moisturize and brighten up. Make sure to massage it in until all's absorbed into the skin."

I wonder if this works for scars. I have a heap of scars, particularly on my legs from my allergy reaction to fake self-tanners (I get a nasty rash). I shall put this to the test!


3. original raw First Essence - Vitamin Essence - 110ml ($26)
"Both the Red Essence and the Vitamin Essence are combinations of a skin toner, an essence, and a lotion all in one. Also, they're both enriched with various vitamin nutrients and dragon's blood extracts from the dragon tree and work to instantly rejuvenate and brighten up the damaged or sagging skin.
How to use: After cleansing, wet a cotton pad with 2-3 drops of First Essence and gently pat it all over your face."

I obviously received the Vitamin Essence. I love multi purpose products, as I do get quite lazy. This product sounds quite unique, as I have never seen a product that acts as a toner, essence and lotion. It will definitely be interesting to see if it's moisturizing enough to not have to use a moiturizing lotion. 

4. Morningtree Revitalizing Whitening Deep Spot - 20ml ($34)
"Excessive melanic pigmentation is responsible for darkened spots over your body - face, hands, arm pits, busts, elbows, knees, heels, and even the Y-zone. This high concentrate, gel-type essence will soothe, cool, brighten, and repair such dry and darkened spots, and it's suitable for all skin types and for both men and women.
How to use: Apply an adequate amount of the Revitalizing Whitening Deep Spot over dark spots and massage it in for full absorbance. You can also store it in a refrigerator, and then apply it over puffy eyes for soothing and whitening effects."

The only dark spots I really have on my face are scars from acne that I had years ago. I have pretty much lost all hope of finding a product that will get rid of those scars.  I also have been blessed, as I do not have puffy under eyes, neither are they dark enough for me to worry about eye creams. As such, I probably will give this product away.


5. Ipsennature 5 Seeds Apple Water Brightening Scrub - 80ml ($26)
"Made from apple water, apricot, raspberry, walnut, rice and corn seed powders, this Brightening Scrub is a cleansing scrub which works to gently peel away all dead skin cells and skin impurities and deliver skin replenishing and brightening effects all in one!
How to use: Spread out the scrub evenly over your wet face and massage with your hands for 5 minutes. Rinse off with warm water."

I love scrubs! Although, my standards are pretty high after finding my HG scrub (Clinique Mens Face Scrub, in case you were wondering). I am quite excited to see how this compares!

6. Faceflux Anti-Wrinkle Revitalizing Cream - 30g ($38)
"Enriched with ceramide, hyaluronic acid, lemon verbana extracts, shea butter and portulaca extracts, the Anti-Wrinkle Revitalizing Cream works to brighten up dulled complexion, to relieve stimulated or sensitive skin, and to treat signs of fine lines and wrinkles for a younger and healthier-looking complexion overall.
How to use: Apply the cream evenly over your face and pat it in for full absorbance."

Wrinkles are the least of my worries. I know prevention is better than cure, but I'd rather use products that treat my current skin problems (i.e. combating oily and dehydrated skin). As such, I'll most likely give this away too.
Out of the two princess boxes that I purchased, I prefer the Rapunzel one, as I am more likely to use all the products in that box compared to this Snow White one. As mentioned in the Rapunzel memebox review, both boxes are sold out. However, there are plenty more boxes available. Sign up to Memebox now to get a $3 credit.

    1. Thanks Mandy! Out of all the products, the Oneday Whitener looks the most "disney"ish. It reminds me of Aladdin.

  2. The essence sounds nice, but I would be really turned off by the whitening stuff. Which is why I didn't buy this one. I was expecting to see a red lip product though since Snow White is suppose to have lips the colour of blood

    1. That is so true, would have loved some makeup products in these! I like to look at "whitening" as evening out skintone and fading out pigmentation. I can see why most are turned off at the thought of "whitening" your skin though, as we all love the golden tan.

    1. I think my mum would've appreciated this box more than I do. I don't really have much to whiten. :(
