As you can see, there is a layer of liquid on top of the salt – this liquid includes sweet almond oil, avocado oil, and aloe vera. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a full ingredients list for you guys. For a company that admonishes “toxic and dangerous chemicals”, it is disappointing that they don’t have ingredient transparency themselves.
Scooping from the bottom of the jar, I think the salt and oils come out in a good proportion.
Personally, I’m not a fan of scrubs or any bath product that leaves a residue on your skin, moisturizing or not. I prefer to do my moisturizing after washing (yay body butters!) and would have enjoyed an emulsifying scrub more.
This product was provided to me by Brandbacker in exchange for my honest review.
Thanks to Beeju‘s great reviews, I finally decided to go for my very first Memebox! Memebox is a one-time skincare and makeup box focusing on Korean brands. They have a huge variety of boxes, some targeting a certain concern (e.g. oily skin), some with a theme (coffee), and some that are ‘best of ____’ sets. To check out all of their available boxes (some sell out really quickly) click heretogo to their website (but first, scroll down this page for discount codes!).
I opted for a two box combo, the Scrub Box + Tea Cosmetics. Of course, exfoliating is an essential step to glowing skin, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE tea, so these look like they’re going to be the perfect boxes for me.
Together these boxes cost USD $52.00 + $6.99 for shipping. I can’t wait to share my unboxing with you when they arrive!

I receive a lot of samples, both trial and deluxe sized, and I probably end up using samples as much as I use the full-size products I actually buy. Here, on this weekly feature, I will share my initial impressions to a variety of products.
NEST DAHLIA & VINES EAU DE PARFUM
With such a pretty packaging (I looooove florals), I was expecting something elegant yet perky. But ew. It smells like potpourri. I’m going use the rest of the sample as as a room freshener only.
THE VERDICT: Buh-bye!
BUMBLE & BUMBLE HAIRDRESSER’S INVISIBLE OIL SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
Smells faintly of argan oil and – what’s this? – gardenia mmmmmh. The shampoo and conditioner, like most Bumble & Bumble products, work well. I don’t feel any of it’s detangling effects, but my normally coarse hair definitely feel more silky.
THE VERDICT: Buy when the price is right!
ORIGINS NEVER A DULL MOMENT FACE POLISHER
I was told by an Origins representative that the papaya extract in this exfoliator “eats” your dead skin – whoa. This thick scrub does its job, but, as weird as this sounds, it smellstoo good. I prefer a skincare routine that doesn’t make me crave papaya.
THE VERDICT: On the fence.
That’s it for today! See you next week with more teeny tiny sample packets.
