Unboxing Post: Memebox Superbox #72 Etude House

Guess what? It's an epic moment in Memebox history - Etude House is finally available! Who says serious skincare and makeup has to be, well, serious? Not Etude House!

Although Etude House's cult-favorite products pack a punch with seriously effective ingredients, their cheeky names and ridiculously cute packaging never fail to make you smile! Offering a wide range of beauty products, Etude House delivers 100% satisfaction for all! It's a win-win situation: crazily adorable beauty goodies that are totally effective! Why wait? Shop now!
Etude House is one of my favorite Korean beauty brands. A K-Beauty fanatic, could never be one without trying out Etude House first. And, I'm pretty sure, this brand sucked me into the wonderful world of Korean makeup and skincare. I just love Etude House! And despite all the other wonderful Korean beauty brands I discovered through the years, I still can't let go of Etude House! 

When Memebox released the Etude House Exclusive Box, I was ecstatic! And then again, eventually, was another Meme-splurge. 

I have tried almost everything Etude House, so I kind of expected this box to provide us with new or limited edition products. 

Here's a sneak peak:

And let's take a look at them, one by one!

I have arranged the products according to my preferences. 

Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream 60ml - $18

Specially formulated with marine collagen and mucilagefrom baobab trees, the famous Moistfull Collagen Cream isa gentle, deeply moisturizing, and skin firming facial cream.

It's fast-absorbing and lightweight in texture as well, making it a suitable moisturizer for both the summer and winter times.
I tell you, the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Skincare Line is Holy Grail material. I even raved about it here. So, yeah, I don't mind owning another set at all. In fact, I have backups of these already.

In case you're wondering, that tiny bottle there is an essence in sample size.

Etude House Face Conditioning Fixer 80ml - $12

A makeup boosting fixer for cooling, refreshing, and moisturizing the skin while locking makeup in place for a long-lasting, silky finish. It also helps soothe and relieve reddened or irritated skin with its aloe vera infused formula.
This came in second, because this is a new product for me. I don't think I have seen this in any of the Etude House stores before, but it sure is interesting!

It's supposed to do a lot of things for your face - like 'lock-in' makeup, boost makeup, enhance finish of makeup, and relieve the skin. I used this for last night's Christmas party, wherein I was wearing heavier makeup than I used to. But, sad to say, I can't vouch for the effectiveness of this product. I haven't seen noticeable changes on my skin at all.

Nonetheless, it's cooling on the skin, so it's pretty handy whenever you're wearing layers of makeup! I'll put this to the test once again in the next few days to come.

Etude House Play Therapy Sleeping Pack 150ml - $10

Etude's special formula "Nutrition Compact" - a blend of pomegranate, mango seed butter, and evening primrose -combined together with rich collagen complex work to deeply nourish and tighten up dry, sagging skin overnight, for a mochi-firm and radiant complexion the next morning.
I love sleeping packs. This is interesting because it's composed of pomegranate and mango seed butter. Above all, it contains collagen, too!  The ingredients I mentioned are extremely popular skincare ingredients that could 'firm' the skin.

And yes, the packaging is soooo cute!

Etude House Belle Dress Pretty Look Shower Cologne 100ml - $8

Get ready in the morning with a spritz of Belle Dress cologne which comes in a fruity perfume complex - a blend of fruity sweetness, jasmine floral, refreshing green note, and warm musk scents. Its blend of hyaluronic acid, natural spring water, and the lovely perfume fragrance will give a refreshingly moist and sweetly scented start to your day.
I love the fancy packaging of this cologne. It's so handy and sooo princessy! Too bad I can't describe how this smells like for now. My nose is still so clogged from flu. :(

Etude House Brow Mascara 4.5g - $7

A mascara for your brows! Non-smudging, long-lasting and containing allantoin, beeswax, and carnauba wax components rich in nutrition, this Brow Mascara from Etude House offers a naturally-defined and youthful-looking arches with just a quick smudge!
An EH SA tried this product on my brows during my last visit to the Etude House store just a couple of weeks ago. She enticed me into buying this, because, according to her, my brows are so dark and full, that I need to tone it down with this brown brow mascara. Glad I declined, because Memebox placed this product in my Memebox anyway.

Still, I don't think I need this, because doesn't do much for my brows. I'll play with this even more though.

Etude House Oh My Lash Mascara 01 Top Coat 8.5g - $5

Ever heard of a top coat for your lashes? Create translucent and glossy lashes by applying it alone, or give a non-smudging and long-lasting finish to your regular eye makeup by applying it over mascara.

When I first saw this, I laughed because product seems to promote makeup overkill. I mean, how many products are you supposed to put on your lashes? It's crazy, it almost sounds like a mani-pedi routine. 

But, I tried this last night over Benefit They're Real lashes, and this product is just so awesome! It does help in keeping your mascara in place. It made a difference! If you're worried about your mascara smudging, this is probably the ideal product for you! 

Thumbs up Etude House~! 


Obviously, my first impressions on the products were somewhat inaccurate this time around. Some products that I didn't expect to create much of a difference were phenomenal, while some were just okay. 

For me, this box is just 'okay'. It didn't really excite me, but it wasn't a bad box either. Probably, at first look, it might look like a crappy box, but the products are awesome and well-curated. I know a lot of these products are not new releases, but I'm happy anyway.
