The mission of Superbox #48 Daily Dose of Beauty is to bring something special to every day of the week. My weeks feel far too long far too often, so having a little something to brighten each day is nothing to scoff at!
This all looks and sounds very comfy, and when I say all, let me also say that this box is packed. There’s no tissue paper for padding here, which seems a bit of a gamble with two glass bottles in the pack. Both survived, though!
Screw the strange and random order the products are listed in on the product card, let’s look at them sorted by day.
Today is Makeup Monday, so it’s time to beat the monday morning blues!
Cheek Room Eye Shadow
For Makeup Monday we have … the neutralest eye shadow ever. I already have a dozen eye shadows in this shade or close-enoughs. Not impressed yet.
I got this product in 03 Honey Pink.
Today is Treatment Tuesday, so give myself the ultimate skin pampering session that’s fit for a queen!
Sally’s Box Delight Hydrogel Mask
Three sheet masks in different flavours; Ceramide, Collagen and Panthenol. I already have a pile of different sheet masks and will happily add these to it. While I don’t really feel that such masks make a difference to my skin, setting aside the time to wear one does wonders for my mind.
I’m glad instructions and ingredients are in english on these, because the Memebox product card gives a description and instructions for a lip gloss — specifically the lip gloss that was included in Office Essentials, I believe.
D’ran Aqua Wonder Intensive Renewing Serum
One of the many potential steps in the korean skincare routine, this particular serum is meant to be applied after emulsion. A single squirt is easily patted into the skin, and feels quite nice. I can definitely find a use for this in a comforting pampering routine.
Today is Weird Wednesday, so time surprise myself with crazy beauty who-know-whats!
Yu Choo By Me Steam Silk Hair Pack
I’ve never heard of hair steam treatments before, so I’ll have to trust the product card when it claims such treatments are expensive, and this product is an affordable alternative.
From the instructions, you wear this hair pack as you would a shower cap. You apply it after towel-drying your hair, let your hair soak in all the super amazing oils for fifteen minutes, then rinse off.
I have very well-behaved hair, and previous experiments with hair oil has only led to intense washing to get the damned stuff out again. I’m not excited for this at all. It’s just a single-use pack, so I might try it when bored, or I might give it away to someone with dry hair.
Today is Therapy Thursday, so give myself a therapeutic relaxation session!
Grinif Rawganic Jojoba Golden Oil
Rawganic: When organic just isn’t natural enough. Bah.
The hideous buzzwordiness and the lavender fragrance put me off in puke-worthy ways, and I have oily skin rather than the “extremely dry skin types” this product is intended for. No thanks.
Eglips JolieBeBe Lip Treatment
I hate the feeling of dry lips, and this lip treatment is adequate for fixing that. It’ll find room in a bag or other.
Today is Funky Friday, so it’s time to glam up and let loose!
Croquis Bulgeum Lipstick
This is supposed to be a lip essence, lip stick, lip tint, and lip gloss in one. It’s also either broken or really stupidly designed.
What may look like a typical lip stick bullet is a hard plastic tube with liquid inside it. I can twist this tube either way, but I cannot get product to come out consistently. When trying to swatch, I got a great big squirt of product. When trying it on my lips, I only got enough product for 3/4 of my lip surface.
This product looks and feels quite nice, but what good is that if I can’t get to it?
I got this in 01 Campari Orange.
It’s finally time for Wrinkle-free Weekend, so time to de-stress and erase the years off my face!
ProYou S Wrinkle SC Renewal Ampoule
Going by the description, this is clearly a product of pure magic. It does all the good skin things — nourishes! improves! treats! rejuvenates! — while containing nothing bad — no evil parabens! no evil mineral oils! no evil artificial things! Parabens, mineral oil and artificial ingredients are not scary, and I do not have an irrational fear of them. Reading this just makes me annoyed.
The product does feel quite nice on the skin. I don’t have any wrinkles and don’t expect any soon, but I suppose it can’t hurt anything but my pride to use this for the sensation’s sake.
Most of these products are useful, but this box doesn’t excite me. Necessities and comfort items just don’t.
As I often do, I want to punch the hype/fear-machine writing the product descriptions.
This box cost $29 plus $6.99 in shipping. It contains six full-size products and four single-use packs.
