What’s a Memebox?
Memebox is a Korean beauty box service that ships from Korea to Canada and the US. In each Memebox, you get 6-8 Korean beauty products, some are deluxe samples and some are full sizes. It’s $23 + shipping (and not shipping per box but per order, so if you order multiples it’s a way better deal. plus right now if you order 3 you get $5 off as well.
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. You get 2 memepoints just for signing up!
On to the box!
Memebox LuckyBox 2
Espoir Lipstick: I can’t figure out the color name, I think they have a numbering system, so the color is called RS103G?
This isn’t a color I’d normally wear, and I was actually going to try and trade it away. But maybe I’ll give it a go. I never thought I’d wear hot pink, either, and since I got a hot pink balm in my ipsy box, I’ve been wearing it. The lipstick seems really nice, goes on like butter. It makes me wish even more that I’d gotten something more neutral.
Value: $15 (full siz
Dr. G BIO-RTx Mentor Cream 3: There were three possible options and I got the one for oily skin, which I do not have. I will probably hold on to this one until it starts getting hot out before I give it a go. My skin gets a bit more combination in the summer. It seemed ok when I spot tested it, so I think this will work for me.
Value: $14ish? The full size would be $35, this is a 20ml sample
LJH Tea Tree 90 Essence: I was a little worried when I saw that this is Tea Tree since usually Tea Tree is something in anti acne products for oily skin, and I’m on Retin A (not for acne though, for my wrinkles) and I don’t want to double down on drying products. It is created though for sensative skin, and has sea buckhorn and centella asiatica which claims to delay the aging process. Count me in!
The spot testing went well, so now I just need to figure out where to put this into my skin care routine. The directions say to apply to cleansed skin so I’m thinking it goes right before the serums.
Value: $13ish? The full size would be $32, this is a 20ml sample
Miseenscene 2X Curl Essence: I’m usually not wowed by hair care products, BUT I just cut all my hair off 2 days ago (I think I had over a foot cut off and now I have a bob) so I’m finding renewed interest in this kind of product! Since it’s called curl essence I’m wondering if my semi wavy curly hair might do great with this.
Value: $2, the full size is $10 and this is a 30ml sample
Nugenic Customized Sunblock Fresh SPF50PA+++: Yessssss I was so glad to get this. As I mentioned a bit back, I’ve started on Retin A and now I need to be even more obsessive with sunscreen because it makes you more photosensative, plus the sun damage I’m trying to cure will just get worse. The spot test went great, it seems to rub in smooth without a white cast. I can’t figure out if it’s a physical or a chemical sunscreen, but I like it either way.
Value: $45, this is full size
Dr. Jart V7 Eye Serum: This product is why I ordered this box. It was a spoiler and I’ve really wanted to try the Dr Jart products for some time now. On the card is says it brightens the skin and gets rid of any dark circles.
Value: $38, full size product
Well, I’m terribly hung over today (I’m too old for this shit) so I thought I’d really give it a chance to shine.
I don’t know what the appropriate amount is, but I went with a mid size blob (pea size) which was too much. So probably just a little dab would be fine and this will last a pretty long time I think
Before and After. I don’t see a difference (except in the angle of the photo of course.) Maybe this stuff isn’t powerful enough for hangovers.
It feels really nice though, it’s a lite serum feel, and made my skin feel soft.
Leaders Insolution Mask Sheets (2)
Bio Medi-curing Mask Aqua Dressing
Coconut Bio Mask with Tomato
I like sheet masks, and I want to try these… I’m hesitent though since I’m not sure if coconut makes me break out, it seems to be a problem for a lot of people. Also, I’m not sure if coconut jelly is as likely to cause breakouts as coconut oils. I’m probably going to give this one a go tonight.
Value: $3 each
I’m overall thrilled with this box. I love trying new products, and the sunscreen and eye cream alone make this box well worth the cost. I’m excited to order more from memebox (I have one coming in June already) since their boxes seem to be really really good value and have great products (because high value products I don’t like aren’t going to be worth much to me.)
