Dry Skin Box - Memebox

Hey skittle biscuits,

I love how memebox is always keeping me up to date with Korean beauty trends. But let's be honest, I was sooo lost in the beginning. It started off with just sheet masks because they are soo fun and easy to use. I had no idea what skin type I was or what a skin care routine was. But anyways memebox came out with these boxes that are made specifically for your skin type and for beginners. I wish this was available when I first started!

Wait hold on.. skin types? Yes, everyone has a different skin type. Some of us are normal, oily, or dry, acne prone. It might be hard for you to tell what skin type you are if you don't wear foundations or bb cream. I first realized I had dry skin earlier this year when I saw that my foundation was not blending into my skin. It would just sit on top of my skin and look all patchy and weird. I thought it was my foundation so I went to Sephora and the lady said I was using a good foundation (UD Naked), it is just my skin.

HUGE SHOCK. my skin?? but I wash it everyday...
Lesson learned, you need more than just a cleanser. This is when I started to get more and more interested in skin care.

Anyways, sorry for the side track story but memebox sent me this box made specifically for dry skin!
Inside the box you will find 5 items.

1x Recipe - Slowganic Cleanser - Green Tea
1x Mizon - No.1 King's Berry Aqua Drink Toner
1x Elizavecca - CF-Nest 97% B-jo Serum
1x Scinic - Snail Matrix Cream - 120ml
1x Benton - Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack

So let's get into the products and deets!

The slowganic cleanser is in the cutest jar packaging. The cleanser is jelly but airy textured. It is so hard to describe but it left my skin clean but not tight!

Onto step 2. This toner from Mizon is a bit scented but I love it nonetheless. It does make your face sting a bit. Like a 1 out of 10 sting lol. But the sting is kinda addicting. It makes me feel like it's working.

Let me tell you, I use to think toning is useless. But then I realized how much my cleanser was missing. After I wiped my toner filled cotton ball, I would see all this dirt and makeup left over on the cotton. I just felt repulsed of my life and how I have been cleaning my face and not using toner. But yes, toner IS A MUST. It also preps your face for the next step.

This is where I would mask. Either a face sheet or a mask from a jar. This dry skin box comes with one snail bee mask sheet. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes. After you take it off you will feel like a new person. I also love to use masks when I feel like my skin is dull.

Next is serums and essence. I like to use 2 or 3 at a time. This box comes with the cf-nest from Elizavecca. A key ingredient in this serum is the birds nest. To be honest, I've known about birds nest since I was little. It would be in a drink or tea and was very expensive to obtain. This serum is clear inside a clear bottle so I definitely try to keep it in a cabinet to protect the ingredients.

Last step in this box is the snail matrix. This cream is the coolest cream I have ever experienced. It is kinda slimy/gooey in a sense. It reminds me of melted cheese on a pizza lol. This cream will lock all the serums in and prepare you for bed or for makeup!

I hope this introduction to k-beauty helped you.
Until next time,
