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.

I picked this box up in a restock because I was on the prowl for any mask boxes that became available. This was a box that was for sale since I started purchasing Memeboxes but at the time I didn’t know how much of a mask fiend I am. Now that I know that, I was trying to get as many of them as I could.

Banila Co. Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay Pack 12g ($2.64)

The 100% pure mud extracted straight from the Dead Sea (consists 32% of salt and minerals) effectively removes any excess sebum, oil, dead skin cells, and external pollutants clogged up in the pores. The mineral-rich formula also delivers deep hydration and nourishment to dry, dull skin. 

How to Use: Spread the clay pack evenly over clean face. Rest for 10 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Gently massage with your finger tups to exfoliate dead skin cells while rinsing. 

I received a couple of these little samples in my Boxing Day 2 box and I have really been enjoying them! I find my face feels so refreshed after I use this so I’m excited to have another little one.

AHC Real Aqua Velvet Sleeping Pack 80ml ($30)

A luxurious, one-step facial to rejuvenate, brighten, and balance out uneven skin tone and texture for velvety smooth complexion. Real Aqua Velvet Sleeping Pack is lightweight and non-sticky in formula, quickly absorbing into dry, exhausted skin to form a protective moisture barrier that locks in the moisture within skin overnight. It contains niacinamide, adenosine, ice plant extracts, snail secretion, and birch tree sap.

This is another duplicate product for me. I haven’t tried this one yet because I am still working on my Mangchee sleeping pack that I started forever ago. Like I said the first time I received this, it seems like an interesting product. People love products that have snail secretions in them so I am intrigued to see how this one works.

Shara Shara Real Sauce Mung Beans Mask 20g x 2ea ($2)

Mung beans have long been utilized as skin detoxifying and clarifying ingredients. They’re highly rich in proteins, vitamins, and dietary fibres, effectively nourishing and brightening up visibly dull, dehydrated skin.

How to Use: Spread the sheet mask evenly over clean face. Rest for 20-30 minutes. Remove the mask and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbance.

If you have followed along with my blog posts, you would know that sheet masks are my favourite skincare product! I am so happy that this box had some and I wouldn’t expect any less since it’s a mask box. I don’t think I have used any Shara Shara sheet masks before so I look forward to trying this. I certainly am not opposed to skin detoxifying and clarifying!

To The Nature Black Rice Hydrogel Eye Patch 3g x 5ea ($9)

Enriched with organic black rice extracts, organic rice bran, carrageenan, gold extracts, adenosine, collagen, glucose, rosewood oil, and more, this Black Rice Hydrogel Eye Patch is all-natural and gentle to dry, sensitive skin. The hydrogel patches visibly diminish in its thickness as the nutrients packed inside absorb into the skin, firming and lifting up sagging under-eyes. Free of paraben, artificial fragrance, and artificial colouring.

How to Use: Place the eye patches under eyes or along the smile lines. Remove after 10-20 minutes. 

I have really been enjoying hydrogel eye patches lately. Not only does the gel consistency feel really neat, they are really comfortable to wear. I find that gel masks of all sorts fit so snugly on my face which I absolutely love! There always seem to be gold extracts in these eye patches. I’m not sure if this actually has great skin benefits or if it is more of a gimmick. Regardless, I look forward to trying these and seeing how they compare to other gel eye patches I’ve tried.

Purederm Yogurt Wash-off Pack 15ea ($7)

A wash-off type pack made from yogurt extracts, collagen, Vitamin E, and various fruit extracts. The kiwi pack helps control excess level of dead skin cells while the strawberry pack helps balance out excess sebum and oil, both effective for maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion.

How to Use: Spread the pack evenly over clean face and gently massage. Wash off with lukewarm water after 5-10 minutes. 

This pack came in either kiwi or strawberry. I received the kiwi option in a previous box so I was definitely hoping for strawberry in this one and I got lucky! Although excess oil is not an issue for me, I definitely wanted to be able to try out both kinds. This box comes with 15 masks which is awesome! Samples with only one use can either not be enough to figure out how you feel about it, or you will love it and want more. I still haven’t tried any of the kiwi ones yet either but I will start working on them soon!

Inoface Inoface Modeling Cup Pack 15g ($4)

Experience home aesthetics with Inoface Modeling Cup Pack series which comes in 6 different types each catered to target different skin problems and conditions. Chlorella is effective in soothing and strengthening skin’s natural balance. Black Food helps take care of excess sebum and firms up enlarged pores. Propolis delivers rich nutrients, leaving skin moist and dewy. Yogurt works to remove dead skin cells and balance out uneven skin texture. Acerola deeply alleviates and rejuvenates the skin. Peppermint also soothes and replenishes dry, simulated skin for a brighter, clearer complexion. 

How to Use: Mix the pack powder with water in 1: 0.8 ratio. Here, make sure to add water little by little until the mixture turns gooey like mud but still thick enough to stay put without drooping down your face. Spread the mixture evenly over clean face. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then remove the hardened pack from the chin in an upward direction. Finish off with a moisturizing cream. 

I am so excited to get this in the box! I had my eye on the Ettang Modeling Cups for a long time and this is the same kind of idea just from a different company. There were 6 different possible options for this product and I received the Chlorella version which is to help soothe and strengthen the skin’s natural balance. I am happy with this “flavour”, and I only call it that because I can’t think of a better word for it. However, I would have been happy with any of them!

Even though I knew what this box contained when I ordered it, I am still so excited to have all of these products! I find that with the mask boxes, I will always use all of the products that they come with and I love masks so they are very exciting for me! I paid $20 for this box plus the $6.99 for shipping and the value of the box was $54.64. Not the highest valued box I have received but I will get a lot of use out of the products so that’s what really matters to me.  Very glad I purchased this box!
