I’ve had a chance to try out one of these boxes – the Mamonde Beauty Box. I was so excited when I found out I was getting Mamonde because as a fan of the multi-step Korean skincare program, I had seen this Korean brand pop up on Asian Beauty forums several times and wanted to try it. Finally, I got my chance!
When the package arrived, nobody was home to accept it, but no issues for gals with this same problem, because the delivery guy actually called me about it and I was able to give him instructions on where to hide the box. When I got home, I was so excited to open the wrapping and see this beautiful box in my fave colour, as evidenced by my bedsheet. 😁
When I opened the lid, I found four products nestled in confetti paper, like so:
Okay, maybe not exactly like these. 😁 Obviously these were arranged for the camera, and also, the products had each been ensconced in bubble wrap, so they were very well protected!
What were these products?
(1) Mamonde First Energy Serum (Retails for $42)
This is a honeysuckle firming boosting serum to smoothen the skin’s texture, filling it with vibrant energy and elasticity. 👌
I really love this serum. It has a pleasant light honeysuckle fragrance and it has a very lightweight consistency, which is perfect for the humid Singapore weather. If you have oily skin (I actually don’t, except for my T zone), you’ll definitely want to try this!
It fits perfectly into my Korean skincare routine, and has not broken me out even though I used it on my whole face without patch testing – a no-no, I know!
Below are the ingredients.
(2) Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream (Retails for $42)
Just like the serum, this one is lightweight, as is evidenced by its name – light cream. I adore light creams. My face is not a huge fan of most heavy creams and usually breaks out in pimples or CCs (Closed Comedones, or pimples with no head, I think) when I use those, so I usually steer clear of those and go for gel products or light creams.
This is perfect for me. It keeps my skin soft and hydrated but it’s not heavy or sticky, so I can wear it even during daytime, under makeup. It also has a light floral fragrance which smells nice and is not overwhelming.
(3) Mamonde Nose Care Patch (Retails for $10)
This product is a dual nose pack that leaves the nose skin supple by removing impurities in the pores and soothing skin stress. To be perfectly honest, I usually don’t use these things because I have no blackheads and I have very fine pores on my nose – something that my friends always point out. I got extremely lucky there!
But I decided to give it a try anyway!
Step 1 is the Heartleaf Houttuyna Black Head Out. A mouthful, isn’t it? 😅
I wet my nose and pasted the patch on it, then left it to dry for 20 minutes. After my timer went off, I found that it was a hard shell and peeled it off. I don’t have any blackheads, like I said but I did observe tons of tiny white sebaceous filaments stuck to the sticky side. Success! 🙌
Step 2 is Rose Soothing.
This one was easier to use – I just plonked it on top of my nose. It smelled wonderful – roses, my fave scent of all. I let it sit on my nose to soothe it after what it went through with step 1 (which wasn’t really that painful, actually), and my nose was suitably soothed and hydrated. 😌
Product number four is a mystery for you to uncover yourself, but here’s a clue – it’s in the pictures! 😉
It’s quite an impressive box, I have to say! All that for $29? Wow! Get it from tomorrow onwards at Lazada!
