After the parade of creep that was Cute Wishlist 3, we move on to something that's creepy in a good way.
The OMG line of beauty boxes from Memebox were supposed to be full of the weirdest stuff that Korean skincare has to offer. But as it turns out they never have been all that weird. What they have been is pretty odd and interesting and good quality. So that'll do for me.
This is OMG3, which cost $29 plus shipping and contains 5 full sized items with a combined value of $152.
- On the Body Makgeolli Soap ($12)
This soap is made from Korea's oldest alcoholic drink, so you could always lick it if you're desperate to get bladdered and haven't got time to get down to Winemark. Very popular with hipsters apparently - the drink I mean, not the soap.
- Cleomee Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist (100 ml $59)
Who knew you could oil a donkey? And that it would actually smell quite nice? This is a light body oil with three layered colours that you shake together to form a Shrek-green moisture spray and is surprisingly lovely to use.
- Migabee Bee Venom & Honey Cream (50ml $54)
A really delicious-smelling smooth rich moisturising cream containing bee venom, royal jelly, propolis and honey. Will leave you buzzing in a good way.
- Tonymoly Delight Tint Crayon in Neon Pink ($8)
Do you think they give out a prize at Meme HQ for whoever can come up with the brightest lipstick to put in the boxes? It certainly feels like that. This shocking pink lip crayon has the USP that it glows neon pink under strobe lights. Useful if you're into clubbing, less useful for those of us who haven't been out clubbing this century. Might wear it for my regular Friday Desk Disco though.
- Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack ($150 ml $19)
The people who live in my internets tell me that this smells rank, but I thought it wasn't too bad. This is often the down side of Korean fermented products - they leave your skin looking great, but they smell like a brewer's armpit. This brick-red facial mask from Tosowoong looks odd but leaves the skin bright and clear.
So although there's one item I really don't like in OMG3 - the terrifyingly loud lipstick - over all I'm very happy with this Memebox and look forward to whatever the next one brings. This box is out of stock but OMG4 is still in stock here.
What do you think of this Korean beauty box? Have you ever oiled a donkey? Would you drink a soap if there was enough booze in it? Can your lips glow in the dark? How bad are you prepared to smell in the pursuit of good skin?
