I have always maintained that the Global Edition boxes are the pick of the lot, in terms of mix of products, and value for money. For those who miss out on Global Editions, Luckyboxes contain a great selection of products from previous Global Edition boxes.
Here is my unboxing and review of the Memebox Global Edition 12.
The moment I opened the external packaging and saw the box, I knew I had a veritable mess on my hands. As you can see, the contents have leaked right out of the box. And the smell was terrible.
Ryo Anti-Hair Loss TreatmentThis is infused with green tea, "gold extracts" and biota and coix seeds and is supposed to prevent hair loss and strengthen thin, damaged hair. This is to be applied on wet hair and rinsed off. This tube needs serious cleaning before I can contemplate using it, as there is goop on the threads in the lid and the seal inside has come off. I am not sure how much of the leaked product is the anti-hair loss treatment and how much is the depilatory cream.
Banila Co. Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay PackContaining Dead Sea Minierals, this pack will remove dead skin and excess sebum and unclog pores. and nourish the skin. I'm afraid the yellow goop has leaked inside the pack and I cannot use it - it is reeking.
Pagentra White Mark CreamI do not need a stretch mark-cream, so I will be passing this on to my sister - I doubt she has them either, but I daresay she has friends who do.
Plagentra White Mark Lotion, Cream and Massage GelThese sachets also seem to be for stretch marks.
Lvida Nail Polish in Passion BlueThis is my favourite product in this box. The packaging is a bit like Ciate, with a little white flower instead of the bow. This is a really nice blue.
Palan Crysence Organic Hair EssenceThis is a non-greasy, leave-in treatment for dry, damaged hair. The external packaging has been damaged but nothing has leaked inside, because this is a pump.
Inter-cos Smooth Hair Removal CreamNow this is responsible for the ruin of the entire box. The bottle broke in transit and the sulphides in the depilatory cream caused my entire flat to reek before I ran for it. I am undergoing laser hair removal so I do not use depilatory creams anyway.
This would have been a good box, even though the depilatory cream and the stretch mark creams are products that I cannot use, but unfortunately the damage means that I can salvage only the nail polish and the hair essence, really. Even the anti-hair loss pack tube has to be thoroughly cleaned to get the smell out before I take it into the shower.
I have emailed Memebox and they have said their customer care will get back about this. Ideally, I was going to wait to unbox this until I heard from them, so in case they sent me a replacement, I could have chucked this and shown you that. But it has been a while now and I wanted to show it to you asap.
I really hope there will be better packaging and no depilatory creams in future boxes, and, more importantly, no damaged boxes. Global Editions - and Luckyboxes, as I said - are the pick of the lot, and are definitely worth the $23 they sell for.
