Memebox Special 57 Dry & Sensitive Skin

Memebox Special 57 For Dry & Sensitive Skin
I've been waiting for a long time hoping that Memebox would release a box of products just for children. Memebox Special 57 For Dry & Sensitive Skin, sounded like it could have products safe for young skin. Selling for $23 plus shipping, this box contained (with stated values in USD):

  1. Zamian Trouble Skin Handmade Soap Ac'xxii, 100g ($18)
  2. TheYeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All-in-one Serum, 100ml ($20)
  3. Pedison Nutritive Infusion Cream, 120ml ($29)
  4. ANACIS Triactive Dermatis Intensive Cream, 20ml ($12)
  5. Migabee Botanical Moisture Mist, 150ml ($22)
  6. Pureplus+ Lip Treatment, 10g ($9)
Total value of box comes to $110.Here is how Memebox described this box:

"Chances are, you’ve probably suffered from dryness and flaking, and the redness and itching that comes with it at some point in your life. Unpleasant and embarassing? No doubt! And in all truth, it’s not your prettiest look, either. And, with the colder seasons ahead, it’s crucial that you take the next step in your skin care to protect and soothe your skin!

According to a recent survey, dry and sensitive skin affects at least 56% of us, and sad truth is, skin dehydration and sensitivity increases as we age. In addition, harsh winds, cold weather, and other external agressors will increase the rate of skin dehydration, which will ultimately lead to dry skin patches and chapped skin. So, let us help you soothe and solve all your dry and sensitive skin needs with a few moist-full tweaks to your beauty routine.  Fortify the skin’s moisture barrier this season and forever lock in moisture and hydration for a dewy and supple complexion for all day hydration!"

1. Zamian Trouble Skin Handmade Soap Ac'xxii, 100g ($18)
Memebox Product Description: "A  handmade facial bar soap for troubled, sensitive skintypes. The blend of tea tree oil, lavender oil, and mauka honey helps treat blemishes and bring back the skin's natural glow form within. The opaque part of the soap targets redness and irritated spots on the skin while the middle translucent part of the soap deeply moisturize and soothes the easily dehydrated and sensitive skin."
How to Use: "Lather the soap well in your hands and gently massage it onto face. It can also be used on body."
Pretty packaging and organic-looking overall, but I haven't used bar soap in a long time. I  might start using bar soap in the shower soon.

 2. TheYeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All-in-one Serum, 100ml ($20)
Memebox Product Description: "TheYeon Jeju Hallabong series boosts its organic formula made from the "Hallabong" which is a special type of orange cultivated only in the Jeju Island and best loved for bursting with vitamin C and super sweet & tasty juiciness. Infused with other Jeju-born organic ingredients such as kiwi, broccoli, and aloe vera, this Energy Mild All-In-One Serum works to replenish, soften, and protect the skin."
How to Use: "Apply the serum evenly over your face and pat it in for full absorbance. It can be used both in the morning and the night."
I wonder at watch age can one start using serum? Too young for kids? This seems mild and hydrating. I will test on myself first. (My kids have pretty dry skin, so I'm forever trying to find products that work. Trying to find Korean ones for children..."

3. Pedison Nutritive Infusion Cream, 120ml ($29)
Memebox Product Description: "A body cream carefully formulated for sensitive and dry skin, containing 0% preservatives, natural lipids, non-comedogenic ingredients, and 2-action hydration layer. This advanced combination of moisturizing agents penetrate deep into skin to deliver instant moisture resurge and restore comfort and suppleness. Its gentle, lightweight texture also leaves your skin feeling silky soft and well  nourished."
How to Use: "Massage over legs, arms, back, and wherever needed to be moisturized."
A product without preservatives seems appropriate for children. Have been using this on my kids as body lotion without any reactions so far.  

4. ANACIS Triactive Dermatis Intensive Cream, 20ml ($12)
Memebox Product Description: "This essential soothing cream suits even the most irritated and reactive complexions. Gentle enough for women in pregnancy, and even babies, this cream helps to relieve dryness and maintains the skin's natural moisture balance. Infused with 27 natural extracts - green tea, mandarin, walnut, squalene and much more - this ultra-gentle soothing cream contains effective comforting properties to especially benefit traumatized, allergy-prone, thin, aging, sun-sensitive, tight and dehydrated skin types. A propriety blend of STRUCTURINE peptides in the formula works to strengthen the skin's cell walls, and it forms a protective veil over the skin to prevent damaged from external stressors."
How to Use: "Apply directly to face at the last stage of skincare routine."
Yes, a product safe for babies...I have been using this on my 1-year old's cheeks daily with pretty good results. The cold winter has been really drying on the cheeks. This seems to help a lot in adding moisture.

5. Migabee Botanical Moisture Mist, 150ml ($22)
Memebox Product Description: "This is a botanical body mist formulated from natural herbal ingredients such as aloe vera verbena, red ginseng, and camellia oil.  Its gentle formula is fast-absorbing and works to rejuvenate and de-stress dry, tired skin."
How to Use: "Spray the mist all over body morning and night after a shower."

6. Pureplus+ Lip Treatment, 10g ($9)
Memebox Product Description: "High concentrates of collagen delivers rich nourishment and a lasting suppleness to dry, chapped lips.  It also contains various nutrients such as snail mucus extracts, shea butter, rape seed oil, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E for protecting oips form further dehydration and damage."
How to Use: "Apply directly over lips as often as needed."
Getting more accustomed to snail product now, but not quite ready to apply any on my lips yet..may when I run out of lip balms, if ever.

I bought this box hoping to find suitable creams and lotions for my kids' dry skin. I got at least 2 or 3 that will work. So I'm happy..still waiting for a Memebox just for children.
