I tend to have fairly dry skin almost year round, since it is a pretty dry climate where I live. I thought the Special #57 For Dry & Sensitive Skin Memebox would be great for it, even though my skin is not particularly sensitive.

Zamian Trouble Skin Handmade Soap Ac'xxii - (100g full size/$18)
Product description: "A handmade facial bar soap for troubled, senstitive skin types. The blend of tea tree oil, lavender oil, and manuka honey helps treat blemishes and bring back the skin's natural glow from within. The opaque part of the soap targets redness and irritated spots on the skin while the middle translucent part of the soap deeply moisturize and soothes the easily dehydrated and sensitive skin."
How to use: "Lather the soap well in your hands and gently massage it onto face. It can also be used on body."
My thoughts: I really like the way this soap bar smells, and it's very pretty! I just don't like using soap bars, and I have enough cleansers as it is, so I'll be passing this on.
The Yeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Mild All-in-one Serum - (100ml full size/$20)
Product description: "The Yeon's Jeju Hallabong series boosts its organic formula made from the 'Hallabong' which is a special type of orange cultivated only in the Jeju Island and best loved for bursting with vitamin C and super sweet & tasty juiciness. Infused with other Jeju-born organic ingredients such as kiwi, broccoli, and aloe vera, this Energy Mild All-In-One Serum works to replenish, soften, and protect the skin."
How to use: "Apply the serum evenly over your face and pat it in for full absorbance. It can be used both in the morning and the night."
My thoughts: I really like serums, and this one seems like it will pair perfectly with the toner I have from the same line.
Pedison Nutritive Infusion Cream - (120ml full size/$29)
Product description: "A body cream carefully formulated for sensitive and dry skin, containing 0% preservatives, natural lipids, non-comedogenic ingredients, and 2-action hydration layer. This advanced combination of moisturizing agents penetrate deep into skin to deliver instant moisture resurge and restore comfort and suppleness. Its gentle, lightweight texture also leaves your skin feeling silky soft and well nourished."
How to use: "Massage over legs, arms, back, and wherever needed to be moisturized."
My thoughts: Body lotion...sigh. I don't want any more lotion Memebox! This will probably be swapped or gifted or something.
Anacis Triactive Dermatis Intensive Cream - (20ml full size/$12)
Product description: "This essential soothing cream suits even the most irritated and reactive complexions. Gentle enough for women in pregnancy, and even babies, this cream helps to relieve dryness and maintains the skin's natural moisture balance. Infused with 27 natural extracts - green tea, mandarin, walnut, squalene and much more - this ultra-gentle soothing cream contains effective comforting properties to especially benefit traumatized, allergy-prone, thin, aging, sun-sensitive, tight, and dehydrated skin types. A proprietary blend of STRUCTURINE peptides in the formula works to strengthen the skin's cell walls, and it forms a protective veil over the skin to prevent damage from external stressors."
How to use: "Apply directly to face at the last stage of skincare routine."
My thoughts: So, even though this product is not particularly exciting in itself, I am finally glad to get a cream that comes in a tube as opposed to a jar. Jars are so gross to me, but this doesn't seem like a very large tube, it's actually pretty tiny. It certainly seems more like a travel size than a full size product.
Migabee Botanical Moisture Mist - (150ml full size/$22)
Product description: "This is a botanical mist formulated from natural herbal ingredients such as aloe vera, verbena, red ginseng, and camellia oil. Its gentle formula is fast-absorbing and works to rejuvenate and de-stress dry, tired skin."
How to use: "Spray the mist all over body morning and night after a shower."
My thoughts: I'm actually growing fond of facial mists, so I might just use this for my face. I don't really see myself using this as a body mist, but a facial mist might work out well.
Pureplus+ Lip Treatment in Strawberry - (10g full size/$9)
Product description: "High concentrates of collagen delivers rich nourishment and a lasting suppleness to dry, chapped lips. It also contains various nutrients such as snail mucus extracts, shea butter, grape seed oil, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin E for protecting lips from further dehydration and damage."
How to use: "Apply directly over lips as often as needed."
My thoughts: I have so much lip balm I could never use it all in my lifetime, so this is definitely going to someone else. I just wish a box for dry skin didn't mean I get a bunch of lotion and lip balm. I buy plenty of that on my own.
Overall, the Special #57 For Dry & Sensitive Skin had a total value of $110, but I just wish there were more products for my face in this box. I don't like getting lip balm or lotion just because I buy so much of that already, I don't want a bunch of it I didn't pick out laying around. Soap bars don't appeal to me, but the serum, the mist and the cream will probably all get used eventually.
