If you want to achieve that beautifully radiant Korean glow, removing makeup is ALWAYS more important than actually putting it on! Rule of thumb is, if you spend 20 minutes slapping on makeup, you should spend the same amount of time, maybe even more, cleaning it off! Regardless of your skin type, cleansing is the most important step in the game of Korean skin care! Don’t waste your time running down the aisles trying to find your perfect cleanser because we’ve curated the best morning and night cleansing routine-in-a-box to help you get glowing down to the pore!
If you have not heard of Memebox, it is a Korean beauty box that contains a variety of skin care, makeup, and other beauty products. There are several types of boxes, including: memeboxes, superboxes, nakedboxes, and boxes that are set around a particular theme. The prices vary depending on the type of box that you get and can range from $15-$80 I believe. Most of the regular boxes are $23 and then you also have to pay $6.99 shipping for each box. You have to keep an eye on the shipping dates for each box because it can be months away, that way you aren’t frustrated wondering why the shipping takes so long. Please be aware that Memebox will no longer be shipping internationally. They will only ship to addresses in China, Korea, and the USA as of February 10 2015.
Shara Shara Dream of Moisture Cleansing Oil 150ml ($13)
This effective, deep cleaning cleansing hydrates skin while it removes makeup and skin impurities. It provides essential hydration and nutrition for with sweet almond oil, avocado oil, argan oil, honey extract and more healthy ingredients to cleanse the skin’s surface and renew the complexion, leaving it healthy-looking and refreshed. Ideal for all skin types, the non-greasy texture leaves skin feeling moisturized – never tight or dry.
How to Use: Rub three to four pumps into dry hands and massage evenly over dry face. Wet the face and massage until makeup is melted away. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.
I’m excited for this one! Other than the Banila Co. Zero, I haven’t tried any oil based cleansers. I definitely haven’t tried an actual cleansing oil so I’m sure this will be nice. I’ve heard good things about Shara Shara skincare so hopefully it lives up to what I heard.
Yadah Pore Refining Foam Cleanser 100ml ($15)
This maximum-strength foaming cleanser leaves skin tingly clean and refreshed. Formulated with egg white extracts, mineral water, and flower water this pore clarifying cleanser controls excessive sebum, removes dirt and oil living deep within the pores, and soothes and refines the skin. The results? Skin is refreshed and purified! Of course, there’s the added bonus of less likelihood of breakouts and blackheads!
I do have a lot of foam cleansers lined up but I certainly won’t turn a new one away. Especially since Memebox won’t be shipping internationally anymore, I need to hoard my Korean cleansers. The fact that this has egg white extracts reminds me of the Skinfood egg cleanser. I like that one so hopefully I like this one too.
Calmia Oatmeal Peeling Gel 100g ($14)
This exfoliating grommage gel visibly rolls and lifts away dead skin cells when gently massaged onto skin. Its gentle oatmeal and honey infused formula helps to effectively peel away the dead dermal layer to uncover a smooth and fresh new skin! It also removes impurities and decongests stubborn clogged pores for a youth, radiant look!
How to Use: Apply a generous amount on clean, dry skin. Gently massage in a circular motion to roll, lift, and sweep away dead skin cells. Rinse well with water.
I haven’t tried any grommage style peeling gels before but I have heard a lot about them. The thought of my dead skin rolling away is a little strange but if it works really well than I am all for it! I am excited about the honey aspect of this peeling gel. I look forward to trying this for sure!
Bory White Snow Toner 130ml ($35)
This professional toner contains naturally brightening and moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, licorice extract, and morus alba bark extract to help clarify and brighten up the overall complexion. It contains arbutin, which inhibits the formation of melanin, to help prevent pigmentation and dark spots, and also contains propriety Lipidure to hydrate the skin, leaving skin clear, moist and healthy.
On the packaging of this toner it says “professional use only” which makes me a little bit skeptical. Is it too intense and that’s why it’s for professional use only? I figure that if it wasn’t safe, than they wouldn’t send it in a box but who knows. If it really is a professional toner than hopefully it will be really great!
Neogen Neoday Eye Remover Pencil 2.6g ($16)
This ingenious retractable eye makeup eraser/fixer instantly removes all traces of eye, including waterproof formulas, with its innovative double-ended tip. The oil balm tip uses gentle, non-irritating and skin-soothing ingredients to gently erase makeup, while the sponge tip helps to remove all residue and help tidy up around the eyes.
How to Use: First, use the white oil balm tip to gently rub away any unwanted makeup around the eyes. Second, use the sponge tip to remove unwanted makeup residue and finish up your look.
I am intrigued by this product! I think it could be really cool if it works the way that it’s supposed to. I would be a little worried about the oil getting into your eyes when it is in a more solid form but if oil cleanser works to take off makeup than this should work as well!
I was surprised by this box. I was expecting that this would be entirely filled with cleansers which also made me a little but wary because I can only use cleansers so quickly. I was happy to see a couple of other things and cleansers in various forms. I paid $21 for this box plus $6.99 shipping and the total retail value was $93. Not too bad for a bunch of cleansers! I am happy that I ended up purchasing this one.
Sorry I don’t have any coupon codes for you but if you would like to check out their website and make a purchase (until February 10 for everybody or anytime for China, Korea, and US residents), than you can do so at http://us.memebox.com/
