Quality Time with my Moisture Surge Memebox: a Special #35 Unboxing & Review

I purchased this box on a whim because WINTER WAS COMING and like John Snow, I don’t know much, but I know that the cold weather does a number on my combination skin. The Moisture Surge Special box from Memebox seemed like one possible solution.

I purchased this box for $23 + standard shipping. Though I never pay full price, as Memebox is kind enough to offer us a bevy of discounts (please use my links and see below for some of these codes!). If you purchase 5 boxes within a three-month period, you are granted VIP access and with it, all manner of wonderful discount codes that will have you spending unfathomable amounts of money on pink boxes from Korea. But you’re saving so much! It would be a travesty not to take advantage. The struggle is real. This box had 6 full-sized items, though one of these was a set of deluxe samples, so you could argue it’s more like 7.5 items overall.

If you are new to Memebox, I urge you to please enter my GIVEAWAY for a chance to win a box of your choosing!

Here, ladies and gentlemen, is Moisture Surge:

It’s a Dry Skin Smackdown!
Dry, flaky skin sucks almost as much as breakouts and oily skin! Whether you’re dealing with an all-over moisture problem or battling just a few annoying dry patches, this Moisture Surge Box will cure all, even during the harshest fall and winter months! This box will lock in moisture for a dewy and supple complexion , and fortify the skin’s moisture barrier for all day hydration!
Get your hydration on with Memebox because glowing skin is in


insobeau Hiaromax Vitamin Stick (10g, RV $29)

A quick 1 second swipe of this Hiraromax Vitamin Stick along especially dry areas of your face – eye contours, mouth contour, cheeks – will instantly replenish and moisturize the skin for  a brighter and more supple complexion overall. Plus, the rich vitamin and hyaluronic acid formula works to cool, soothe, and even treat enlarged pores.

Impressions: This item led me on a rollercoaster of emotion. Initially, I was pleasantly surprised that the stick had such a soft, smooth texture. I was expecting something more firm, like a coco-butter stick I’ve used in the past, but this was a much nicer consistency. My excitement quickly faded though, when I tried the product and it really seemed to just sort of sit on top of my skin like a waxy buildup rather than being absorbed and moisturizing. But I haven’t yet given up on it! Colder months are coming and it’s possible I may find my mind changed. I think I’d really like for this to work, so maybe I can will it to be so. The scent of the product is another detractor for me. It has a very medicinal scent, much like Vicks vaporub. So very much torn on this one and a little suspect of the Memeprice. The packaging is quite lovely though and ideal for tossing in your purse and using on the go.


Wish Formula Premium Ampoule Mask (1ea, RV $14) & imface Vio-Zellose Neck Patch (10ml, RV $5)

The miracle Premium Ampoule Mask improves the skin’s natural recovery power wile it also works to combat wrinkles and deeply nourishes the skin, leaving it moist, supple, and radiant. The neck patch has a naturally-derived coconut jelly texture, imaface’s special Botanical Wrinkle Complex extracts, and adenosine complex all working to treat signs of aging along your neckline. This product is free of paraben, benzopenone, sulfate artificial pigment, and artificial fragrance.

Impressions: I find my level of Memexcitment grows exponentially when I find out I’m getting a neck treatment in a box. Much like the thrill that Tibetan Mushroom neck cream from the Anti-Aging 3 box brought to me, this neck patch did not disappoint. Unfortunately, one mask isn’t enough to really give you a proper idea of how effective an item is, but it was quite lovely and left my neck area looking a bit smoother and feeling tighter. Similarly, I didn’t see any lasting changes from the ampoule mask, but it was a very nice sheet mask that left my face glowing. These two items made for a fabulous pampering sesh one evening – just wish I had more! (particularly neck patches)


original raw Deluxe Kit ver 3.0 (30ml x 3ea, RV $60)

The Black Bubble is made from all naturally derived cleansing complex, boosting its auto-bubble system which works when the oxygen transmitter from its formula meets the air and automatically transforms into fine, minute bubbles for cleansing deep into and throughout your face. The Chan-mool Patting Essence has a tangly and jelly-like texture, which relieves, moisturizes, brightens, and tightens up the skin all in one, by creating a protective moisture barrier. The Water Block Black Jam’s black component is extracted from plants and together with the super hyaluronic acid combine to create a moisture wall over your skin. A single application will last you up to 48 hours without any further re-hydration.

Impressions: Man, do I love this set. I loved it so much that I promptly put it away after only using it a few times because I wanted to save the rest for when I travel. This kit is the perfect size to fill that need and would allow me to bring what is essentially a full skincare system without having to pack a separate suitcase for all my products. These products act exactly as described with the Black Bubble being the most unique of the three with its effervescent bubbling action on your skin. Each product is incredibly effective. This set also brought about another revelation, as my husband who has supported my Memehabit but did not express any interest in trying the products, despite my best efforts to spray him with items as he passed by – HE read the description for this set and was keen to try it. So that was very exciting for me. PROGRESS. My husband actually has amazing skin without even trying (jerk), but I just feel the need to somehow snare him in the Memeaddiction… you know, sharing stuff is healthy 😉


ROSEMOON RICH 53% Collagen Smart Balm (50ml, Rv $47)

This Collagen Smart Balm is a nourishing facial cream for deeply hydrating the skin and strengthening the skin’s innate strength and function. Experience super soft, moist, and well-protected skin the next morning with this collagen-rich formula!

Impressions: I feel wholly remiss for not having a proper review of this product for you, but I am using so many creams right now that if I waited until I got to this one this review may have never come to fruition. I can say that the packaging is lovely and my husband has already been eyeing this thing, so it’s possible I will be able to update this with a proper review sooner rather than later. Come to think of it, it would be lovely to have another face to test all these products on – more reason to get him into the Memehole with me! I sincerely expect that I will really like this item. Collagen creates a moisture barrier on our skin, so this will be the perfect night-cream during those cold New England months.


Dermahouse Aloe Vera Moisture Mist (120ml, RV $14)

It’s a moisture splurge for all the super dry and sensitive skin out there! Whether your face is overheate from excessive exposure to the sun or dry and irritated from an exhausting day, Dermahouse’s Aloe Vera Mist delivers an instant replenishing and soothing effect with just a single spritz! Experience softer, healthier, and more radiant skin.

Impressions: Last, but certainly not least, is what has become my most favorite item in the box. You guys. This product seemed so unassuming, with its aloe, simple packaging, and reasonable RV, but I have used it on a daily basis and would be lost without. The scent is heavenly and definitely has some floral undertones. The spray itself is a nice consistency and just makes you feel like all is right with the world when you get it all up in your face. It’s incredibly refreshing, leaves my skin baby soft, and absolutely has a soothing effect. I will certainly be looking for a replacement before this item runs out!


Overall Impression

The overall Memevalue of this box is $169 and I consider my money very well spent. This box has truly exceeded my expectations. I’ve been lovingly using most of the items in it, or just as lovingly saving them for special occasions. Everything has served me tremendously well and I’m sure will continue to do so as winter approaches. If a restock ever emerges I (s)urge you to grab it! (I can’t help myself)

  1. ok. Level with me. How does that black bubble stuff work? I have experienced no bubbly effervescent-ness to speak of … what am I doing wrong?? also, hand to God, that spray is amazing. as you say, when I run out, and I will – The struggle IS real.

    • That is so odd! I even brought the box in to work to show it to a colleague and the bubbliness even worked on my finger as I was demoing it for her in my office haha. I just spread it and allow it to sit for a few moments. It’s not terribly large bubbles, but it turns kind of grayish and you definitely see some action. Are you possibly massaging it right away or as you apply it?
      Gawd, that mist! I swear it like balances my pH or something as well. I should test it. Just amazing.

  2. My husband has great skin too and all he uses is the soap he bathes with! No moisturiser, no sunscreen, nothing.
    I was tempted to get this box but we don’t have much of a winter in Bombay anyway. Nice review 🙂
