My Summer box!
I was so excited for this box, I ordered it ages ago.
What’s a Memebox?
Memebox is a Korean beauty box service that ships from Korea to Canada and the US (and quite a few other countries). In each Memebox, you get 6-8 Korean beauty products, some are deluxe samples and some are full sizes. The normal box is $23 + shipping (and not shipping per box but per order, so if you order multiples it’s a way better deal. Superboxes, like the one reviewed here, are between $29 and $39 This particular one was $32.
You can earn “meme points” as well for additional discounts, and the way and number you earn is varied and seems a little random. If you want one click here if you would like to use my affiliate link.
On to the box!
MEMEBOX Superbox #23 Sumemrmeeting
I love Korean Sunscreen and BB Cream. That was what I was hoping for in this box, and they mostly delivered.
- Finco UV Control Sun Block
- Hope Girl Power Volume Mascara Wand Waterproof
- CNKCOS Transformer Solution 1st and 2nd (They work together)
- borntree Bloom Mineral Avenue Air Fir Sun CC
- W.HOLIC Glutathion Whitening Essence
Finco UV Control Sun Block ($54 for 60ml)
As I mentioned, I love Korean Sunscreen. This one is PA+++ and doesn’t leave too much of a white cast. I usually don’t concern myself with white cast because I always wear makeup, but I think this one could be worn alone too.
Hope Girl Power Volume Mascara Wand Waterproof ($22)
Waterproof mascara. Not bad, it’s subtle and natural looking. I usually go for the MEGA SUPER EXTRA FAT LASHES kind of mascara, but for a day out or at the beach this would be great I think.
CNKCOS Transformer Solution 1st and 2nd (They work together) ($20)
These are the instructions that came with it:
My main concern is how long this lasts after mixing together. I didn’t mix it yet because I don’t want to waste it if it’s limited after use. I can’t find much online about it. I’m going to wait until I want to try it to mix them, just to be sure I don’t waste it.
borntree Bloom Mineral Avenue Air Fir Sun CC ($21)
It’s the right color for me 🙂
It blends in well, but has very minimal coverage. And wow are my hands veiny.
I’ve never tried CC cream, but the card calls it “lighter and more natural looking” base makeup. This will actually be great for carrying around when I’m traveling next week. I guess I better spot check asap.
W.HOLIC Glutathion Whitening Essence ($43)
Whitening makes me a bit nervous. If it’s whitening because it gets rid of sunspots (using AHA, niacanimide, or Vitamin C) I am OK using it, but I get concerned when it’s not one of those because I don’t want to actually lighten my skin.
I tested it on my wrist and it’s a thick whitish serum, it doesn’t smell like anything, and it rubs in well.
This product uses Glutathione, an antioxidant. Taken by the mouth it does all kinds of things, but I couldn’t find much about what it does when applied topically. I’m going to hold off using this until I get an ingredients list, the search is on
I’m overall pretty happy with this box. It’s really high value, and I think I’m going to get good use from everything in it. I have about 4 more memboxes coming, I keep getting caught up in the deals and coupons, and if more are like this one I’ll keep on ordering them.
The total value of this box is $160 in products.
(Under $30) Cheapskate Approved because it’s so high value!
Will use most products, very happy with the box all in all. Good Buy!
