Moi-meme Monthly │ Yang Sheng │ June 2019

As you likely already know, one of my favourite subscription boxes of all time has been the quarterly box from Moi-meme. They are so consistent when it comes to the diversity and quality of their products, which are always well thought out. My one and only gripe was that I had to wait a whole three months in between boxes, which feels like a really, really long time with a box as wonderful as this one is. This all changed last month however, when Moi-meme finally launched their very first monthly box, which I of course made sure to get my hands on as quickly as I could.

A month has passed since then, and so of course I was absolutely thrilled when my second ever monthly box landed on my desk. The focus for this month’s box is wellness and self-healing.

Yang Sheng – The art of Chinese self-healing
The first item I laid eyes on upon when opening up my box was this stunning book. It’s quite large, and the reason this month’s box was delivered in one of the larger, quarterly boxes rather than the mini version that was used for May. This item is absolutely perfect for the theme Moi-meme were going for, is full of great information and is lovely to look at. This book is all about achieving balance within your body, using techniques such as slow movement and focused breathing, it ties in very nicely with my Yoga.
 I’ve had a quick thumb through, and when I’ve finished my current read I’ll be moving straight onto this to give it the full attention it deserves.

Gua Sha Tool – Rose Quartz
I’ll be honest, when I first pulled this out of my box I had absolutely no clue what it was. Upon reading the description card in the box it became apparent that this lovely stone is to aid in application of facial or body products. It also helps promote blood flow as well as natural drainage of the lymph nodes, which in turn helps improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. Being made of Quartz makes in much cleaner, as it obviously won’t absorb and hold product. Admittedly it isn’t anything I’d ever think to purchase for myself, so it was quite nice to get something a little different and out of the ordinary.
The stone chosen was a lovely rose quartz, partly for its beautiful colour but also down to the healing properties associated with the stone. I did have one very minor gripe with this, and that was that the information card simply stated to look on online for the many different ways this can be used. That’s fine, but I’d have much preferred to have something within the box, even if only a few simple steps or techniques with the advice that there is more out there if you look for it. Whilst by no means the end of the world, to have nothing was a little disappointing. This does flow on very nicely from the book we received, and is really consistent with this months theme.

Raw Halo – Mylk and Vanilla Chocolate
Of course I love chocolate, and I’m so thrilled that Moi-meme have decided to incorporate a sweet treat in each monthly box. They don’t just send a standard chocolate bar either, it’s always something a little quirky or different that I wouldn’t buy myself, which gives me the chance to try something new.
For this month, the bar was well in keeping with the theme of healing and good health. This bar is gluten and dairy free, with no refined sugar makes it suitable for pretty much everyone. Plus with the lack of refined sugar and use of natural sweeteners you could almost consider it healthy. Or at least that’s what I told myself!
The bar is a dark chocolate, which is perfect for when you need a chocolate fix but don’t want to scoff loads. It isn’t bitter like dark chocolate can sometimes be, and I enjoyed this over a longer period which was nice.

If I’m 100% honest, whilst I did like the contents and thought it was very well thought out, I didn’t enjoy this month’s box quite as much as I did the first. You can’t win them all though, and this is only the second ever box and I have every faith that the July box will be amazing. For those who would like to get their hands on their own, you can still use the discount code I shared in my last post. Simply use ‘EMSWORLD’ at checkout for a discount off your first monthly box.
