Pamper a special someone with our new Black Friday Special Editions each packed with 5~7 full sized makeup and skincare miracles all for ONLY $19!!
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. Sometimes if boxes are due to ship at the same time, they will have bundles so that there is only one shipping cost.
I ordered the Black Friday boxes 1, 2 and 3 and the descriptions for all of them were the same and quite vague so I wasn’t sure what we would get. They shipped them all separately so I finally got my last box which is #2. Let’s see what came in this box!
Lately Memebox has been sending out boxes without cards and have been sending out emails with online information cards instead. This was one of those boxes so you will have to trust that I’m not making up the descriptions for each product.
Blanc Doux Pinot Noir UV Shield & Tone-Up Sensitive 40 ml ($36)
No more blemish-instigating, oily sunscreens! Specially formulated from a strong antioxidant – premium red wine ‘Pinot Noir’ – this mild, moisturizing sunblock not only provides moderate UVA and UVB protection but also replenishes and brightens up uneven skin tone and texture, for a glowing, supple complexion.
How to Use: Apply evenly over face as a makeup base to prep skin before applying foundation or BB cream.
I absolutely love the packaging for this sunscreen. I think it is beautiful and sleek, and the colour is one of my favourites! This sunscreen was sent out in the Wine & Cheese box I believe. I am happy to have this and I will use it after I finish the sunscreens I already have.
Elizavecca Real White Vita-Sauce 30 50ml ($48)
With pure vitamin C consisting over 30% of the facial ampoule, this is a highly concentrated vitamin ampoule which provides instant moisture, whitening care, wrinkle-care, and skin protection all in one!
How to Use: Apply 2-3 drops of the ampoule and pat it in for full absorbance. Make sure to shake the bottle well before application so that the vitamin capsules in the ampoule can be evenly applied over your skin.
I am a little confused about why this is in this box when it was in the Black Friday #1 box as well. Why they put duplicate products in boxes of the same collection I have no idea. However, that being said, I am using the first one that I got and do not have any other ampoules waiting to be used so I will use this one next. At least its not a duplicate of a product that I don’t like.
Cotterang Aesthetic Reparative-K Cream 20g ($43)
A facial cream for soothing and nourishing stimulated skin, the Aesthetic Reparative-K Cream is packed with high concentrates of centella asiatica extracts, jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, and gold extracts. Its soothing formula works to hydrate and calm reddened, sensitive skin by creating a protective layer on top and also by instigating skin regeneration.
Once again, this cream was in the Black Friday #1 box with the Elizavecca product. I haven’t used my first one yet because I have so many creams waiting to go. I’m not sure yet if I will keep this or pass it along yet. I kind of wish I hadn’t received a duplicate of this product but maybe once I start using it, I will really love it.
Tonymoly I’m REAL Red Wine Mask Sheet Pore Care 21ml x 2ea ($2)
A micro-emulsion type essential mask enriched with red wine complex. It’s fast-absorbing, effectively softens uneven skin texture, and maintains a healthy moisture/oil balance. Plus, it’s free of paraben, talc, benzophenon, tri-ethanolamide, and tar colouring.
How to Use: Spread the mask sheet evenly over clean face. Rest for 15-20 minutes. Remove and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbance.
I am really excited to get these! I have been wanting to try the Tonymoly masks for awhile but haven’t found them online anywhere that I didn’t have to pay a small fortune for shipping. I absolutely love sheet masks and love getting them in my boxes so this is one of the better products of this box for me!
Ladykin Mangchee Lifting Mask 50ml ($43)
This Mangchee Lifting Cream moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Mango, cheese, and shea butter extracts boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result. It leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel and energizes the skin, giving you a healthy-looking, glowing complexion.
How to Use: Apply the Lifting Mask all over the face. Use before bed. Do not rinse.
This is another product that I am excited to have! I haven’t gotten any sleeping pack type masks yet from my Memeboxes even though they seem so popular! I just received a Mangchee hand cream in another Black Friday box and it seems quite nice so I am excited to try this. I am curious to see how I will feel having the sleeping pack on my face, and hopefully it won’t be uncomfortable if it absorbs slowly.
Overally, I am still quite happy with this box despite the duplicates. I am happy to have the Elizavecca duplicate, and am alright with the Cotterang duplicate. I am very happy to have everything else that came in the box so I think it is a success! With coupon codes and Meme points, I ended up paying $15 for this box including shipping. This means I only paid about $8 for the box itself. The total retail value (according to Memebox) is a whopping $172 which is crazy! Also, at this point, other than the Innisfree Peeling Gel, I have everything that came in the Wine & Cheese box so they must have had a lot of people cancel their orders of that one.
