Memebox #72 Etude House Unboxing

My Etude House box has finally arrived! I was expecting great things from this box, but to be honest I don't think it's as great as the Tonymoly box. Let's have a look and see what I got, shall we?

1. Etude House Oh My Lash Mascara 01 Top Coat
Memebox says: "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."
A top coat for your lashes? I can't be the only one that finds this a little weird right? I've only played around with this the one time the other day, but I have to say, so far I am kind of impressed. I wouldn't say my lashes are glossy or anything, but there is a very subtle difference when you apply this over regular mascara. More testing needed, I think!

2. Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream
Memebox says: "Specially formulated with marine collagen and mucilage from baobab trees, the famous Moistfull Collagen Cream is a gentle, deeply moisturising, and skin firming facial cream. It's fast absorbing and lightweight in texture as well, making it a suitable moisturiser for both the summer and winter times."
I am so glad they included this in the box, I just ran out of mine and was going to re-purchase! I've a full review on this here if you want to check it out.

3. Etude House Play Therapy Sleeping Pack
Memebox says: "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 nurish and tighten dry, sagging skin overnight, for a mochi-firm and radiant complexion the next morning."
Another product I was thinking of buying recently, so I'm very happy to see it included! I've been trying this out for the last few nights, my skin feels so soft in the morning!

4. Etude House Bella Dress Pretty Look Shower Cologne Pretty Look
Memebox says: "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 have mixed feelings about this one. It's smells great and all (reminds me of those roll-on body glitters that The Body Shop used to sell), but I would have liked to see a lipstick included instead of this. Also, the packaging seems very childish to me.

5. Etude House Face Conditioning Fixer
Memebox says: "A makeup boosting fixer for cooling, refreshing, and moisturising the skin while locking in 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."
I was thinking of getting this over the summer, so again I am happy to see this in the box! I have yet to try it out, so I can't say anything about it just yet.

6. Etude House Brow Mascara in 02 Light Brown
Memebox says: "A mascara for your brows! Non-smudging, long-lasting and containing allantoin, beeswax, and camauba wax components rich in nutrition, this Brow Mascara from Etude House offers naturally defined and youthful arches with just a quick smudge."
This one was a huge disappointment. I personally don't think things like this should be included, as they don't suit everyone. My eyebrows are black, so obviously this is not going to work for me, so I won't be touching this one at all.

Overall, this box is nice, but it could be a lot better. I wish they had included some newer Etude House products, like those adorable castle hand creams that launched about a month ago, or even some lipsticks or tints. The brow mascara was disappointing, I wish they had said they were including it and given the option of choosing what colour of the three available shades you wanted. The body spray was ok, but I would have preferred to see a lipstick or tint in it's place. I hope the next Etude House box is more impressive!


  1. I agree about that they could have put some of the newer items too. Other than that, I tried the browcara and I liked it. I don't know about the other products. but then again, they should ask for the haircolor etc of people before sending such products.

    1. The Chinese one was better, they got the new handcream, a lipstick, one of those play pencils. I was expecting that stuff to be in our box! The brow stuff was just so annoying, it's not even close to my colour so I know it'll never be used, and I'm guessing it's the same case for a lot of others too.
