The Memebox From Nature box arrived at the same time as the Birthday Box (you can also find out through this review what Korean Beauty Box Memebox is about and how it works) even though I've ordered them a week apart, as each box has its own shipping date (listed on the product page's description), and the From Nature box was ready to be shipped anyway as it was a restocked box (every so often Memebox will restock some of their popular boxes again, but quantity is limited).

The From Nature Box , which is currently out of stock (again), cost $39 + $6.99 for shipping, which is approx £26.84 in total. It was jammed packed with 3 full size products and 3 deluxe size samples, where 2 of them came in pairs. The box came with

Swanicoco Cell Emotion Snail Gommage Peeling (100ml, worth $25)
SN-T Goddess Cream (50ml, worth $19)
Lanoa Natural Soap - Sulfur (100g, worth $17)
Dewytree Tea Tree Blemish Solution Mask (27g x 2, worth $6 in total)
Ramosu 100% Propolis Extract Ampoule (10ml, worth $20)
Moongkle Nutrition Intensive Repair System (25g x 2, worth approx. $18.65 for 2)

Total value of this box is approximately $105.65, although some say that Memebox over valued their products. However, as some of their products aren't available in the market (including Ebay), and the retail price of the products is still more than what we paid for, it's worth paying it to get the good things here.

The SN-T Goddess Cream, or Plant Stem Cell T Cream as the jar says, smells like a citrus unisex perfume, which I like! It's not very strong but refreshing. I love the texture, it's a bit in between creamy and gel like, but not either. It's quick to absorb and my skin felt instantly hydrated, with a healthy glow that you get after you just had a facial. My skin felt lovely! I really love it and will definitely finish it!

The Ramosu 100% Propolis Extract Ampoule is something new to me. Propolis extract came from honey bees that uses it to seal small opening places in the hive. The Ramosu ampouli claims to contain 100% pure Propolis extract, which is suppose to give your skin deep hydration and youthful glow. A single drop is to be added to skincare when applying.

Obviously I can't really tell you whether it works or not, but I like the novelty of force breaking the seal (it's well sealed up), add the dropper on top and mix a drop to my cream, it's like chemistry! My skin felt great with the SN-T Goddess cream already, but I wouldn't mind adding a drop of the Propolis extract, especially if it really works.

Last year me and my family were joking about putting snail mucus on our skin. Today I'm actually putting it on my skin without cringing! The Snail Gommage Peeling gel smells divine (all Korean products smells gorgeous! Ok, maybe not all), which definitely helps me overcome the snail mucus bit. The peeling gel is fun to play with as well! Simply apply on the skin and as soon as you start massaging your skin with it, it forms little drying-up-gel like lumps. The more you massage, the bigger the lumps, and eventually you can just rinse it off with cold water to tighten up your pores.

The area that's been "peeled" felt really soft afterwards, and I mean baby soft! Although very gentle, it's definitely doing its job, so treat it just like how you would treat a scrub and don't over do it. Applying a nourishing cream or mask pack to sooth and hydrate the skin after peeling is recommended.

I have been looking for a hair product that can give my dying hair a boost of nutrients, so I was pleased to find 2 tubes of Nutrition Intensive Repair System in the box. There is quite a lot of product inside one tube, so the 2 should last me for quite a bit. You apply it to your hair in place of your hair conditioner, but leaving it in for 5 to 10 minutes instead before rinsing off.

Once rinsed off, my hair felt really smooth like I've just used a really good hair conditioner for it. My hair felt soft even on the day after, though it still look thin and frizzy. I'll try it a few more times before judging whether it's good or not. I'm just really pleased that my sensitive scalp isn't reacting to the product (it doesn't feel dry, tight, nor itchy).

The repair system contains Oriental medicine extracts, so it does smell a bit like oriental medicine, but it's not lasting.

I'm in a love/ hate relationship with this Dewytree mask. I love it that it's drenched with the serum inside, and that the sheet of mask is the softest. I also love it that it completely covers my face, and although it stinged a bit (probably because I used a mild daily scrub beforehand) at the beginning, it becomes very soothing and the thick serum makes my skin feel amazing. My skin looked great afterwards like I just came out from a spa and I definitely felt pampered.

However, I absolutely don't like the smell. It smells like Sandalwood and it's a definite no for me. I endured it only because the mask felt so good on my skin, and the result is one of the best mask experience I've ever had. I will consider buying this, but definitely not the Tea Tree Blemish Solution Mask. Maybe the Whitening one, and hopefully it will come with a more pleasant scent.

As I'm not really a soap person, I decided to give the Lanoa Natural Soap away. I did hear lots of good reviews about it, but I'll give it a miss.

This is definitely a fantastic box, and I'm glad that I bought this when they restocked it. Like the Birthday box, I'll use everything up apart from the Lanoa soap.

Favourite product: SN-T Goddess Cream
Products I like: 5/6
Products I'll consider buying again: 2.5/6 (The mask counts as half as I might consider it in a different version.)
Products I'll pass on: 1/6
