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.
The promise of brands such as Skinfood and Tonymoly was the reason that I purchased this box. I have liked products from these brands before and was excited to see which new products of theirs I could try. Let’s see what we got.
Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake 4g ($5)
Formulated with cacao extracts, this Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake carries two naturally blending grey, khaki, or brown shades for shaping and defining fine arches with an easy sweep.
01 Grey Khaki Black, 02 Grey Brown
This is not a product that I was excited about to be honest. I received this product in my Skinfood box and wasn’t overly excited about it at the time either. You could have received 01 Grey Khaki Black or 02 Grey Brown and I received 02 Grey Brown which is the exact same colour I got last time. I think I will probably find someone to pass this along to.
Skinfood Tomato Whitening Toner 180 ml ($17)
A premium Tomato Whitening Toner made from sun-ripe tomato extracts and Vitamin C complex to make skin brighter, clearer, and suppler.
This is another repeat from the Skinfood box that I received. I finished this bottle of toner literally only a couple of days before receiving this box which was kind of funny. I did enjoy this toner. I found it quite refreshing and it actually became my favourite part of my skincare routine. I am working on a lemon peeling toner at the moment but I think that this one is next in line (based on expiry date). Its not so great that this is a repeat but at least it is something I know I like!
Nuganic Customize Anti-Wrinkle BB or Customize Pure Snail BB 40 ml ($54)
Nuganic BB Creams work to balance out the skin’s oil & moisture level for a silky smooth finish to your makeup. They offer strong UV protection while effectively covering up skin imperfections and leaving your skin glowing with a natural shine. The Anti-Wrinkle BB is enriched with adenosine, arbutin, ginseng extracts and more, and the Pure Snail BB bases its formula on snail mucin filtrate, aloe vera leaf, lemon, and various herbal ingredients.
There were two options for which kind of BB cream you got and I was really indifferent to which one that I had to be honest. I have not opened this because I have several BB creams open at the moment but I’m sure it will be nice. There is no shade listed so we will see how it matches. I haven’t had too much trouble matching the Korean BB creams so far because I am pretty fair. I am excited to try this!
Skinfood Egg White Pore Meringue Foam 200ml ($13)
Abundant, meringue-like fine bubbles penetrate deep into skin without irritating or dehydrating the skin texture. Highly recommended for weak and sensitive oily skin types.
This is the final repeat product in this box, also from the Skinfood box. I am a couple of days from finishing my first bottle of this cleanser and I have enjoyed it so I am not upset to have another one. I have so many cleansers at the moment that I may never run out!
Tonymoly Delight Tony Tint 8.3ml ($4)
One of the bestselling lip tints in Korea, this tint instantly gives vivid red colour to your lips with just a single touch. It creates the long-lasting, radiant lips, popular among Korean beauty lovers.
How to Use: Apply small amount to inner center of the lip. Blend it outwards to create gradient lips.
The final product of this box is a Tonymoly lip tint. For some reason I skipped actually taking a picture of the packaging but you can see the swatch above. I received 01 Cheery Pink and the other choices were 02 Red or 03 Orange Cha Cha. I am so unbelievably happy that I didn’t get the orange version of this! When I read that it was Cheery Pink, I was a little afraid it would be a Barbie kind of pink. Fortunately for me, it is a deeper pink that I actually like quite a bit. Once it sets, it doesn’t seem to budge so that is great! As you can see in the picture, the colour may feather out a bit so be careful with it on your lips!
I paid $25 for this box and received products that are valued at $93. I am still waiting on my Boxing Day #5 box but so far this has been my least favourite of the Boxing Day boxes. It’s not that these are bad products, I just would have preferred getting something new that I haven’t tried before. Overall, an alright box.
