Memebox Review: Blackout!

20141209-114113-42073797.jpg

I ordered Blackout! as a bundle with Petit Treasures awhile back. It was a less expensive box ($19 I think?), so it only included four products.

I honestly don’t know why I ordered this. I assumed it was all skincare, and typically that type of skincare is better suited toward oilier skin, which I don’t have this time of year.

B&SOAP Black Block, Meme value $24.

This is a facial soap with charcoal, rosemary and olive oil to clear out pores without irritating the skin. This reminds me a lot of LUSH’s Coalface cleanser, which is nice but way too drying for my skin. I won’t be using this.

Honest Clinic Black Hole Spot, Meme value $26.

This is a spot treatment that is meant to be used overnight. It specifically says not to use on a non problematic area as it could result in reddening. That kind of makes me nervous. And I am lucky enough not to regularly need a spot treatment, so I am not sure that this will get used. We’ll see!

Tosowoong Black-Head Nose Pack, 8 pack, Meme value $6.

I just got the tonymoly egg pore strips and I still have plenty of blackout sauce from my At Home box, so I am not sure when I will ever get around to these. #memeboxproblems.

L’CRET Hair Color Keeper Treatment Shampoo, Meme value $42.

Wtf Memebox?! Just because the packaging on this is black does not make it relevant to this box. I already received this in my Rapunzel box and have been trying to figure out what to do with it ever since. Now I have a second one! I do color treat my hair, but I still prefer a more clarifying shampoo. Guess I should finally try this now before making a final decision.

Overall, with the exception of the shampoo, I feel this box was curated well. I just have no use for the products. That is entirely my own fault. The meme value on this box is $98, which is very high for four products.

Did you get the Blackout! box? Thoughts?
