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, are between $29 and $39 This particular one was $23.
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 and give me some sweet sweet points or dollars or something. You get 3 memepoints just for signing up right now, which is a $3 value!

Recipe by Nature Golden Time Vita Capsule Essence: Full Size $42
Vitamin Essence. This is another item that I’m going to have to go on a big ingredient list hunt for. There is an ebay listing that says it has
Panthenol (Vitamin B5)
Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
But… what else? That’s just the actives, right? I like essences, but to try them out I think it’s good to know what else is in there. I get worried about things like lemon, ect, that seem to show up from time to time in Korean skin care products.
Shower Mate Perfume de Whip Body Wash: Full size $4 each (2 total)
These are very scented. The card says fruity and sweet floral refreshingly crisp white blossom (lighter tube) and elegant rose and jasmine scented Marilyn Red Fantasy (black tube.) I say overwhelming perfume scent. It’s a good scent, but I’ve been trying out indie perfumes lately, and these are just cloying in comparison.
a;t fox Fantasy Holic Lip & Cheek Designer Pencil in Lovely Coral: Full Size $7
All over color, it’s pretty pigmented and a little shimmery. I tried this on my lips and it went on OK. I don’t think I want bright coral colored cheeks, so I haven’t tried that yet. It’s got enough shimmer to it that I probably won’t top it with a gloss. I went out for dinner right after I put it on, and by the time I got to the restaurant it had rubbed off.
Beauty People Miss 100 Super Waterproof Gel Liner in glimmer bronze: Full Size $38
Bronze eyeliner. Not much more to say, than Yay it’s waterproof and I’m going to the beach this winter so I’m totally going to use it there! I am not normally one for golds and bronzes as eyeliners, but it’s good to branch out, right? I’m going to give it a try, I think it will look great with black dresses and red lips.
VOV Good-Bye Black Smudge Waterproof Mascara: Full Size $16
I like getting mascara samples. I’m going to keep this one sealed up for now, since I already have 3 tubes going. So no swatch. I’m going to be bringing this with me on my Christmas beach holiday! Whoo!
Sua Young Mineral Essence in Liquid Foundation SPF33 PA+++: Sample (5g) $5.65
The formula seems OK but the color is too light for me. It’s creamy, and seems like it’s great for the right person’s skin though! It’s also a really big sample for foundation. I like it when samples are big enough that I can try things for a day or so before buying.
Sally’s box 4 Set (Love Recipe Apple Mask, Delight Ceramide Hydrogel Mask, Delight Collagen Hydrogel mask, Delight Panthenol Hydrogel Mask: Full Size $14
I love Sheet Masks. So much. And these are Hydrogel ones (aside from the apple one). I’m pretty pumped. I’ve been wanting more good sheet masks ever since the Leaders Insolution ones I got in another Memebox. They are hard to come by in Canada (The Face Shop has some disappointing ones, but otherwise it’s big shipping costs to get them here.)
Kocostar 4 Package Set: Ggongii Hair Pack, 10 Face Spot Mirror Patch, 5 finger nail pack, 3 Foot Peeling Pack: $20 Total Value
I’m totally excited to see my feel peel up like crazy. This is going to be so gross and awesome. I like packs, masks and other things like this, so i’m glad there were so many in this box. I’m very curious about how this finger nail pack works out, you are supposed to put them on and let them sit for about an hour. The hair one says you don’t wash it out, but it should also involve a ponytail…. my chin length hair can only get into slightly questionable looking pigtails, so hopefully that will work. Then the foot pack… it says to only leave it on for an hour! Then I will molt after 3-5 days.

This box is pretty awesome! I think there is more in here that I will use than I’ve had in most other boxes, even though it seems like it has less big ticket items. Quality over quantity, right? I think I’m going to get good use most everything.
