Memebox - Special #6 - Wholegrain

I just can't stop singing the praises of this box and I only picked it up about a two hours ago! When it was restocked I knew I had to buy it, I'd seen some reviews already and I was really intrigued by the therapy heating mask. Thankfully, I'd won a giveaway on Bits and Boxes, so I had 10 points to use towards it. 

Unfortunately, something has leaked a bit, possibly the hand mask which is unfortunate because that's one item I was really looking forward to using. But I'm just so excited to use everything! I love how everything's full sized and that we get two of the Rice Bran Collagen Masks! I was in desperate need of more face masks so that's a plus. It's just going to take all my willpower to not use all this in one day, seriously. I'll keep updating as I use the products. Definitely worth it! 

Grinif Nature Oatmeal Scrub Bar - It feels amazing but I'm not a huge fan of the smell. I just won't use it on my face again though. It's a pretty hefty bar of soap too, might I add.

Purebess Galactomyces 100% - This feels like water to me, when you put it on. But it's good, made my face feel quite soft and fresh. Didn't leave my skin sticky feeling which is always good. I used it under this other cream I use and it just went on so much better, so smooth.

Purebess Galactomyces 80 Eye Cream - I'm always looking for a good eye cream that will somehow lessen the ever-present dark circles under my eyes. Seriously, I can't remember a time where I didn't have them. This cream isn't for that so I was a bit disappointed but I still love using this cream. Any little dry patches I had are gone and, it could be in my mind, but I think the couple of lines that had started to appear are much less noticeable now.

Purederm Anti Stress Heat Therapy Mask - I have to confess, this mask is the reason why I bought the Wholegrain Memebox. It sounded like a bit of a novelty idea to me, the whole 'heating-anti-stress' part. I'm finally trying this and I still haven't noticed any warming feeling, just a bit of stinging. However, my face does feel and look softer, plus it smells quite nice. According to my Mum, my face looks more 'luminous' after I've used it, so that's a plus! If I had bought this item just by itself, I'd still be pretty happy with my purchase. Update: And here is why this product gets it's own post. That nice 'luminous' look is now gone & it's been replaced by a very irritated looking face. I probably should have tested this cream on my hand or something first. Not good. My face is all red and blotchy, very itchy. A day after using this, my face was still a bit red looking and I broke out in pimples. I am one very unhappy camper over here. I didn't think my skin was that sensitive either.

Purederm Daily Moisturising Oatmeal Hand Mask - I'll let you in on a little secret, for years now I've been slathering moisturiser on my hands before bed and then wearing cotton gloves. It's very straight forward and I'm surprised more people don't do it. So this mask is just a really good idea, even if it does kinda smell like the hair dye I use.

Cost: $30 [Paid $14]
Value according to Memebox: $85
