"Wine and cheese have gone hand in hand for centuries, but this is probably the first time you've seen a wine and cheese beauty box. Leave it to Memebox to cook up the weirdest, yummiest beauty box that would amplify your beauty!"
"Wine, famously known to be rich in antioxidants and essential minerals, speeds up the cell renewal process and stimulates the blood circulation for the look of rejuvenated, brighter skin. Cheese, considered and excellent source of Vitamin B for the skin, supports the look of supple, bouncy and glowing skin."
This stuff lived up to all the hype. First the smell is like a cheesecake, not to sweet but delicious. Then the texture was fun, like melted mozzarella. It left my skin fresh, smooth and moisturized. To think, I almost saved the UV shield and tone-up for swapping/giveaway. I would have been missing out. I only kept it for the UVA/UVB blocking properties. It has a lovely perfume smell. And I'm allergic to most perfumes, but this was great. I love how light it is. Wonderful decision to keep.
I was pretty disappointed to not receive the INNISFREE Wine Peeling Jelly Softener as it was one of the spoiler items for the box. It stated to be infused with Chateau Margaux, the queen of all wines. As a wino myself, that sounded wonderful. The product is used as a gentle exfoliator that effectively rolls away the dead dermal layer to uncover fresh new skin and removes impurities, while decongesting stubborn clogged pores. That too, sounded divine.
When I opened the box only to not find it, I contacted Memebox and they reported that they had not been able to procure the item (as had happened quite a few times during this time period) and that they put the retail value ($12) in Memepoints on my account. They did indeed do that, and also included in my box an apology letter and one of their own line of sheet masks, which was very nice of them and I look forward to using.
THE VERDICT: Despite my disappointment from getting the peeling jelly softener, it could only have improved what was almost an almost perfect box. I am way over-moisturized this week. So much scrubbing and so many thick creams. I'm used to moisturizing 1 - 2 times a week with a heavy cream. My skin is dryish, but too much moisturizer makes me greasy quickly. Once I started though, I couldn't stop. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE of these products are unbelievable. I'm super happy. This was one of the best I've ever received. Memebox has changed directions recently, but if they ever offer this one again, GET IT! You'll be SO happy!
