Before you wonder any further about the funny name of this beauty box, the Dermo Cosmetics box contains the best Korean products founded, handpicked and used by dermatologists for pampering the skin. I like the idea of dermatologist-founded skincare. The word "cosmetics", in Korea, covers skin care as well. The good news is that this box is now restocked here, for those who want it after reading this post. The restock may not contain the exact same products, though this post should give you a good idea of the mix.
Here is the unboxing and review of the Dermo Cosmetics beauty box from Memebox.They have changed the format of the product card. Now you do not have pictures of the products, and the write-up is brief.
- Dr Oracle Real White Eye Gel
- Dr Oracle Easy Care Shiny Water Pack
- Kangskin Beauty Multi Block Sun Cream
- Kangskin Beauty Scalp Treatment Shampoo
- Dewy Tree 7 Cut Facial Cream
- Kangskin Beauty Aqua Soothing Mask
Dr Oracle Real White Eye GelI love that Memebox is now including full-sized eye creams in their beauty boxes. Why? Because I am on a quest to find that one elusive eye cream that takes care of my dark circles - acquired since this January - and under-eye dryness. Dior Capture Totale has just given me horrible milia. At this point, I am somewhat desperate. This cream contains alpine herb extracts and white flower complex. The prime purpose seems to be dark-circle removal. I will be happy if it actually does that.
Dr Oracle Easy Care Shiny Water PackYou cannot beat Korean skincare for innovation! This pack contains sunflower seed extract, jojoba, grape seed, avocado, olive and macadamia oils. What you do with this is, apply it on your damp face and massage it in for 10 seconds. And then, rinse it off - an instant glow is supposed to appear. Give me a reasonable trial period and I will tell you if it is breakout-junction or skincare genius.
Kangskin Beauty Multi Block Sun CreamI finished using up the Nuganics Customise Sun Block in May. Granted, we have not seen the sun at all in June and probably will not until the monsoons are fully spent, but it is always good to have more sunblock if you are living in the tropics. This is SPF50.
Kangskin Beauty Scalp Treatment ShampooI first thought this was for dandruff, but it turns out that this shampoo is meant to treat the damaged scalp tissue and hair. I qualify for that second part, definitely, so bring it on! So far, I have had mixed results with Korean hair care products. The packs and conditioners have been decent; the shampoos a bit meh. I hope this shampoo is unlike the previous samples they sent out.
Dewy Tree 7 Cut Facial CreamI will not need to buy a face cream for ages. They seem to be cropping up in almost every box, don't they? On the other hand, it is difficult to find one that does not break me out or render me an oily mess. This is paraben-free and contains 29 natural ingredients to hydrate and prevent wrinkles. I might give this to my Mum, who uses a lot more day and night creams than her acne-prone, oily-faced progeny.
Kangskin Beauty Aqua Soothing MaskMemebox is a Korean skincare box. Of course there is going to be a sheet mask! This is meant to moisturise and clarify the skin. I have been using sheet masks once a week this month - so far - so this will come in handy.
I love that everything in this box is actually founded and used by dermatologists. I have been somewhat meh about the makeup-based Memeboxes, as you will see shortly. But this box is what Memebox is all about! I can use everything in here, and there is a nice mix of eye care, hair care, moisturisers and face packs. As I said, you can get the Dermo Cosmetics box here. Do take a look at their regular Memeboxes and special edition boxes here, the best-of-regular-boxes Lucky Boxes here and full-sized Superboxes here.

P.S. While Memebox is a Korean beauty box that ships to many countries, from March 2014, they have stopped shipping to many places where they have loyal customers. They have been adding several countries back to their shipping list; please sign this petition to get them to add more.
