New from Memebox

Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share some new things from memebox.com. I am excited to try them out and see how they work. I love finding new products that work well and they are new.

The first thing is Real Art Cleansing Water. This is suppose to be a cleansing water that does not require water to wash your face. I don’t recommend doing this instead of washing with water everyday but it would be great for traveling and on the go.  I’ll test this out and have a detailed review soon.

The next skincare item is this cleansing oil that you use water to wash off. I’ve already tested this out last night and really like it. The oil is very smoothing and nice feeling and washes off easily, taking off makeup and dirt. It does have a stronger scent to it so I didn’t use it around my eyes to take off my waterproof mascara. But for face makeup it works great as a first cleanser. I could see the makeup melting off.

Beach Essentials

I love the beach and now that I am in SoCal I want to take full advantage of it and the warm water.

Today, I am sharing my beach essentials. I like to keep it simple when it comes to products at the beach. I don’t ever wear any makeup because I know I’ll be going in the water all day. But I do make sure to bring a separate face sunscreen and a body sunscreen.

I just recently tired out the spray body sunscreen and dry oil. I have to say I love them! Especially for the beach, when you are all sandy and don’t want to get even more sandy… the spray comes to the rescue. I usually use a tanning oil when at the beach (just to tan my body for a bronzy glow) but never my face. The oils I use to use were heavy and left everything oily. This dry spray works just as well for tanning and doesn’t leave any oil residue, so you can get your tan on and keep fresh all at the same time.

As for the face sunscreen I use this Korean brand (secret key). It came in one of my memeboxes and I’ve been hooked on it. It’s high protection and I feel like Korean made sunscreens work so well. I have to say ALWAYS wear a higher sunscreen on your face when at the beach. Gotta prevent those winkles girl!

But of the best things for skin swimming in the ocean. The saltwater helps to clear up blemishes.

Lastly, a SPF lip balm to protect the lips from spots and sunglasses to protect your eyes. I always go by this when at the beach (protect face, neck, lips, hands and eyes from sun, tan body and drink lots of water). Fresh aloe vera ice cubes to rub on my skin afterwards. Helps to soothe skin from long day in the sun.

Hot Cheetos! I don’t know why but after you come out from swimming in the ocean for a while and then eat a snack of hot cheetos they taste extra good.  I also make sure to pack sandwiches, fruit, juices and waters.

What do you bring to the beach?!

Aztec Healing Clay Mask

This is a great all natural face mask for cleaning out the dirt, oil and makeup from the pores. I have been using it for about 4 years and it is so effective. I like to do this after I have been wearing makeup all day and my skin and pores feel clogged. This helps to deep clean them and leave the skin feeling fresh and renewed. Check out the video below with review and demo.

Aztec mud is brought into being as a result of volcanic residue/dust deposits that have settled on the earth.

Fountain of Youth: Meme Box

Hey everyone! Today I want to share this Meme Box I purchased and received in the mail. I was super excited to get this box and see what skincare it came with. It is called the Fountain of Youth Box- Check it out here! There is a coupon code, use “Fancy” for 15% off your order! =) When it comes to package boxes or subscriptions, I can be a little picky because sometimes I feel like they can be a waste of money. But I have been really satisfied with the skincare boxes from memebox.com. It has full-size products and a great way to try new Korean skincare without paying for each product separately. That way you might find something you really like and then can buy it again on the site. What first sold me on this box was knowing it came with this sleeping pack. IMG_0361 I use a sleeping pack every night after I do my skincare routine. What a sleeping pack does is lock in all the moisture and products you have put onto your skin while you sleep. I always use one from Tony Molly but this brand looked cool. What drew me in was the 17 black food complexes it contains that benefit the skin. IMG_0886

It came with 3 other full-sized anti-winkle products. Can’t wait to try them out. I mean, it’s okay to age, it happens and theres no slowing down, but if we can slow down the winkles that come along with aging.. why not?!
