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.
This box was part of a bundle so I grabbed it as my last Memebox purchase ever. Let’s see what we got!
Sevendrops Criste-Marine Firming Eye Cream 25ml ($52)
This high-performance eye treatment uses Criste-Marine extract and Alaskan Glacial Water to improve multiple visible signs of aging around the delicate eye area including lines, wrinkles, and crepiness. Potent Criste-Marine, a wild plant that lives along the coast of the sea, is renowned for its ability to delay premature aging by smoothing the look and size of wrinkles and firming up saggy areas. The velvety texture instantly nourishes and revitalizes as it helps create a more youthful look. Eyes appear firmer, brighter, and more beautiful.
I have a bit of a gripe about this one to be honest. This is quite an expensive, fancy sounding eye cream that is in a larger than usual size. Most eye creams I’ve used are 15 ml and this one is 25. All of this is great except for the fact that this expires in November of 2015. What the heck Memebox? I am using a 15 ml eye cream that I started about 5 months ago and I’m still not finished it. You expect me to drop everything and use this bigger eye cream in only 7 months. I am a little peeved about this as you may be able to tell because this sounds like a beautiful product and I feel like they are kind of ripping us off a bit. Like the cherry on top of the end of Memebox’s international career. Other than that, this eye cream does sound good and the only reason it upsets me so much is because I actually want to be able to use it in its entirety.
A.H.C. The First Caviar Ampoule 30ml ($50)
This powerful anti-aging treatment features concentrated doses of caviar, berry complex, ginseng, and other active ingredients that correct visible signs of aging in a single step. Caviar, known as the diamond of all skincare ingredients, hydrates, brightens, repairs, protects, and nourishes the skin for complex perfection. Day after day, the skin is transformed: imperfections and wrinkles are diminished, the skin texture is refined, and the complexion becomes more even and radiant. The smooth and soft texture of the fluid melts onto the skin for a naturally perfect and luminous result.
It would be nice if this product lives up to all of its promises but I won’t find out for awhile. I am still working on an ampoule that is only about half done so this will be packed away until I need it. It would be really great if it could get give my skin a lot of hydration because these days it really needs it!
Secretkey Colour Recipe Cream 55g ($17)
This high-performance skin-brightening facial cream delivers powerfil vitamins to the skin, fighting external damage, increasing luminosity, and supporting natural collagen for a visibly brighter, firmer, more youthful appearance. The Yellow Cream brightens, firms, hydrates, and fights damage done onto the skin with its vitamin-rich formula, and the Blue Cream replenishes moisture content to aging and damaged skin to restore a glowing, youthful radiance to the skin. Antioxidant rich vitamin capsules burst onto the surface of the skin to deliver cosmic doses of nutrients to the skin, leaving skin fresh and ab. Paraben-free, mineral oil-free, Benzophenone-free, phenoxyethanol-free, animal cruelty-free.
I love how there are just weird translation issues in these descriptions sometimes. Such as “leaving the skin fresh and ab”. Where were they going with that one? I received the yellow version of this cream which is brightening and hydrating which sounds good to me. Much like every other product, it will be awhile before I get to this one. I have so many creams stashed away, it may take me forever to get through them all.
The Yeon Wannabe Romance Gel Perfume 02 Peach Blossom 12ml ($12)
Stylish and lovely, with a distinctive personality, Peach Blossom gel perfume takes you on a romantic getaway with pleasant peaches and crisp florals. Portable and easy-to-use, this travel size gel perfume goes on clean without leaving any sticky residue behind to leave a subtle and lovely fragrance. Use it on the hair, wrist, and body to invigorate your senses. Top Notes: freesia, Seville orange, jasmine tea, grapefruit. Middle Notes: jasmine, rose, magnolia, white peach. Base Notes: white musk, amber, white cedar.
This is something that would have made more sense in the signature scent box than this one but what do I know. I have never even heard of gel perfume before so this was quite interesting to me. As you can see in the picture, the applicator is almost like a little spatula which could almost pass as a lip gloss wand. I do like the scent of this one although it is really subtle and doesn’t last for too long. Maybe I need to try it out some more to see if it really is as subtle as I think it is. This is another one that has to be used up within 2015 which annoys me once again although not as much as the eye cream does!
Rosemine Whipping Milk Body Lotion Passion Fruit 300ml ($15)
This rich yet surprisingly lightweight hydrator delivers the perfect level of moisture to the skin. Its rich, deep-sinking formula is made with mango seed butter, rose water, and rosehip seed oils and more emollients to swiftly replenish lost moisture to the elbows, knees, feet, and hands. This lotion goes on silky – never greasy – and is perfectly encased in an adorable floral container and has a fun and fruity passion fruit fragrance.
This is a huge container of lotion. I like to use my FCS whipped cream so I don’t tend to use other lotions but I will definitely try and use this up. The smell is decent so I won’t hate putting it on which is always a good thing!
Overall I am relatively happy with this box. Other than my annoyance at the expiry dates of products, I think we got some pretty good stuff in this box. I paid $25 for this box and the retail value of the products is $146. I just wish that Memebox had left off with the final boxes being great all around!
