You get a detailed card in every box that lists the products you have received, it gives you a little bit of information about the item and also tell you how to use it.  This is very important as without this there would be many products you would just not be able to figure out what they are or how to use them.  The information on the products themselves are all in Korean, so unless you know Korean you will not know much about the product without this card.

 23 Years Old CX Detoxifying Air Therapy, memebox23 Years Old CX Detoxifying Air Therapy, memebox

23 Years Old CX Detoxifying Air Therapy – $50 (£29.95)

This is a one use product which seems quite pricey at £29.95.  My first impressions were what on earth do I do with this! I wasn’t expecting to see a syringe and a scary looking face mask, it looks like something you would get done professionally.  I’m not too sure what difference it makes being in a syringe rather than a tube, I’m guessing it’s just novelty factor to make it look more interesting to make you pay the price tag.

The product in the syringe is made from carbonated water and creates sparkling bubbles on your face, which massages the skin whilst wearing the face mask.  The bubbles penetrate deep into the skin and cleanse away all the impurities clogging up the pores.  The mineral-rich carbonated water also helps brighten and firm up your overall skin for a revitalised feeling after use.

You apply the contents of the syringe all over your face (not sure how easy that will be) and place the face mask on top.  You keep this on for 20-30 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.  This will be interesting to use and I will post pictures on my Instagram, so follow me to keep updated.

Donga Tempo Eco Natural Super, memebox

Donga Tempo Eco Natural Super – 3 pack – $3 (£1.80)

What can I say about these!! Well am I impressed to receive tampons in a beauty box…. no not really!  When it comes to this sort of thing you know what you like to use and you don’t really fancy experimenting with the unknown.  So I don’t really know what Memebox were thinking when they added this into the box.  Apparently back in the 1970s Donga was the first Korean brand to produce women’s tampons.  Tempo Eco Natural is made from 100% purely organic cotton which is meant to be gentle and comfortable.  This still doesn’t make it any more appealing to me.  There isn’t really much else to say about these! Thanks but no thanks.  Full size product is 16 pack for $11.

2014-08-16 13.02.292014-08-16 13.02.41

CNP Cosmetics Derma-Scalp Shampoo – 25g – $2.70 (£1.62)

Full size is 250g for $27 (£16.17).  This shampoo will deep cleanse into your scalp to unclog pores, remove excess impurities, it has cool and refreshing feeling due to the tea tree oil extracts.  This is suitable for a sensitive and troublesome scalp.  The shampoo should be left on for 4 minutes before rinsing off.  This shampoo has a strong tea tree scent, and I think this will be great in the summer when wanting to have a cooling and fresh feeling.  I don’t normally go for such strong scented shampoo.

CNP Cosmetics Tone-Up Protection Sun, memebox CNP Cosmetics Tone-Up Protection Sun, memeboxCNP Cosmetics Tone-Up Protection Sun, memebox

CNP Cosmetics Tone-Up Protection Sun 15ml – $10.50 (£6.30)

This sunblock has an SPF 42 PA+++.  It contains powdery components to help keep your skin silky soft, it also contains deep sea water which helps to prevent your skin dehydrating.  This sunblock can also be used as a makeup base.  It has a slight tint to it, but blends in nicely.  You can’t tell very well in the pictures but I think this is slightly too light for my complexion, It may be too light when I apply this to my face.  I am going on holiday soon so I will take this with me and see how this works out for me.

 memebox wheat germ creammemebox wheat germ cream  memebox wheat germ creammemebox wheat germ cream

Yufit Eon Wheat-Germ Cream 75 – 75ml – $48 (£28.75)

This cream consists of over 75% organic wheat bud extract which works to hydrate, firm, brighten and fight signs of aging.  This formula is gentle and light so it absorbs easily and does not irritate even the most troubled skin.  Instead it helps to tighten pores for an overall healthier and younger looking complexion.  This cream is a generous size so it should last a while, it also reminds me slightly of Vaseline (but a lot thinner) but once rubbed in it absorbs and isn’t greasy in the slightest.  It can be used day and night which is great and it leaves my skin feeling really soft.  I have really high hopes for this cream and I will definitely be using it right away.  Fan-B has a really good post about the ingredients of this cream and it seems to tick all the right boxes, so a good cream to slather on my face and not worry about it causing any unwanted spots! yey.  You can read her post HERE.

Soy Bio Plus Fermented Lumpoule, memeboxSoy Bio Plus Fermented Lumpoule, memebox

Soy Bio Plus Fermented Lumpoule – 2 x 6ml – $24.85 (£14.90)

The full size product is 14 bottles x 6ml for $174 (£104.23).  Pretty expensive!  This is made from Korean fermented soy bean lump and is meant to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles and also brighten up your overall complexion.  The name comes from the combination of two words, ‘lump’ and ‘ampoule’ which make lumpoule.  Sounds pretty strange to me! You simply apply 2-3 drops of the ampoule on to your face and pat in for full absorbance.  I really like the sound of this product, and I have high hopes for it.  It should be highly moisturising and full of great active ingredients, all good for your skin.

2014-08-16 13.11.24 2014-08-16 13.11.41PhotoGrid_1408200456644

Nuganic Customised Sun Base Color Control Cream – 40ml – $54 (£32.35)

For the final product you would either receive the one I have or Pure Snail Color Control Cream.  The card has just the one description so I don’t really know what the difference is between them both as the description makes it look like they both contain snail mucus extracts.  This is a CC cream with SPF 50+ PA+++.  You don’t need to used much of this, I would suggest use small amounts at a time.  The tube suprised me as when I took off the lid there was a pump, I quite like this as it makes it easy to use.  The cream comes out white, but when you start to rub it in it changes to a kind of beige colour.  You can’t really see this is the pictures, I think I applied to much to my hand.  I found if you use too much it takes a while to change colour and absorb into the skin, this is why I suggest small amounts at a time.  It is also quite thick, so I would probably apply a moisturiser before applying this.  This will hopefully help achieve an even coverage and will stop your skin drying out.  This cream works to balance out the skin’s oil/moisture level for a silky smooth finish to your makeup.  It is supposed to cover up major skin imperfections and leave your skin glowing with a natural shine.  I think this cream will also be a bit too light for me, especially after I have caught the sun on holiday.  But I will give it a go and see how I like it.

Verdict

I am very happy with this box, I still have not been disappointed with a box from MemeboxThe value of this box came to $193.05 – £115.64!  Wow now that is definitely worth the $29.99 – £17.97!  You really do get more than your monies worth.  I am happy with most of the products, I wont even get into the fact there are tampons in the box!  I do wish the CC cream and sun block were a little bit darker to suit my skin tone, but I may try mixing a bit of foundation or my BB cream in with them.  I look forward to trying them all out (apart from the obvious!).

The boxes are very cute and bright pink, they come very well packaged and there were no customs charges which is great.  You don’t sign up to a monthly box, you just chose from the vast choice they have on their website, and you can order as many or as little as you want! But you still get the surprise of the monthly boxes where you don’t know exactly what products you will receive.

Memebox Special #7 Milk

memebox #7 milk

I have been lucky enough for Memebox (pronounced Me Me Box) to send me another box to review!  This box is just amazing as well.  I have since ordered some of their lovely boxes, I just can’t wait to receive them.  Their boxes are very good value for money and shipping is reasonable considering it is coming straight from Korea.  The box they sent me this time was Memebox Special #7 Milk the price of this box is $23 plus $6.99 p+p.  I just love Korean cosmetics and I love how accessible they now are thanks to Memebox.  They have a very large variety of boxes you can choose from and they also ship to 45 countries!

In this box I received 7, yes 7 Full Sized products!  I definitely noticed the difference in weight compared to the first Memebox I received, this has to be my favourite one so far.

memebox special milk memebox special milk

You get a detailed card in every box that lists the products you have received, it gives you a little bit of information about the item and also tell you how to use it.  This is very important as without this there would be many products you would just not be able to figure out what they are or how to use them.  The information on the products themselves are all in Korean, so unless you know Korean you will not know much about the product without this card.

I am loving the ‘Milk’ theme to this box.  We all know the benefits of milk, but it is not something I ever tend to associate with skin care.  Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, is a famous beauty icon who is known to have used milk as a secret ingredient for maintaining smooth, supple and radiant skin.  Milk also has properties that repair sun damaged skin, prevent premature aging, and provide nutrients for a youthful look.  With all this in mind I am excited to try these products.

hello everybody bubble bath steam milk

Hello Everybody Bubble Bath Steam Milk – 24g – $4 (£2.40)

This is a single use sachet (so I believe) you pour into your bath tub, then fill the bath with hot/warm water and enjoy your very own bubbly milk bath.  It has a mild vanilla fragrance, which you can even smell through the packaging!  It contains almond oil, chamomile and rosemary leaf extracts, these help soften and nourish the skin.  I am not sure how bubbly this product will be, I have never used a powder bubble bath before.  I do really look forward to having a milk bath.  This is not something I have ever had before and I think I may feel like Cleopatra for the day.  I may have to get someone to feed me some grapes whilst I relax in the bath, oh and fan me with some big leaves!

everybody body lotion

Hello Everybody Nature Holic Body Lotion Milk – 300ml-$25 (£14.85)

This is a very good sized product and comes in a very handy pump action bottle, which will make using it so much easier.  None of my other body lotions are in a pump action bottle, so this is very useful for me.  This is an all-natural body lotion and is made from organic goat milk, which is extremely gentle, moisturising, and fast absorbing.  This lotion is also rich in aloe vera, honey, lemon balm, and spearmint extracts.  This lotion locks in the moisture and helps to keep your skin smooth and supple.  This lotion is smooth and light and does absorb in the skin quickly, it has quite a nice smell to it which is not too strong.  The smell kind of reminds me of talcum powder.  My skin feels super soft though after using this product.

pure smile choosy lip scrubpure smile choosy lip scrub

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Scrub – 25g – $11 (£6.55)

In this box you would have either received Peach Milk or Chamomile Milk, I received Chamomile Milk.  I probably would have preferred the Peach Milk one as I love peach, but this one is still nice.  This lip scrub is designed to remove any dead skin you may have on your lips, it also deeply nourishes and adds extra luster to your dry, chapped lips.  It contains lots of natural ingredients such as sugar, peach extracts, milk protein extracts, chamomile extracts and bees wax.  You get a bit of product on your finger (you don’t need too much though) and gently roll the lip scrub on your lips, after you have rubbed it around and feel you have exfoliated your lips enough, wipe of the product with a warm towel or tissue.  After using this lip scrub it is suggested to apply a nourishing lip treatment, so apply your favourite lip balm to soothe and moisturise your lips.

pure smile face mask pure smile face mask

Pure Smile Milk Mask Pack – 22ml – $1 (60p)

This is a sheet mask, which I am still yet to try.  It says this will replenish your complexion into a baby-face with this milk pack rich in milk protein nutrients, which aid in hydrating and smoothing out uneven skin texture.  After you have cleansed your face you apply the sheet mask and leave it on for 15-20 minutes.  Before removing the sheet, gently pat in the remaining essence into your skin.  By looking at the product it also looks like it contains collagen, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E.  The little diagrams on the back amuse me, when I look at them they make me giggle.  I think I am going to use this product with my Milk Bath, they will go very well together.  I will relax in my bath with this milk face mask on, I should have super soft skin all over after that!

skin ceramic donkey milk steam cream skin ceramic donkey milk steam creamskin ceramic donkey milk steam cream

 Skin Ceramic Donkey Milk & Argan Oil Multi Steam Cream – 100g – $34 (£20.20)

The packaging of this product is so cute I love it.  It is a very substantial tub with a nice embossed donkey face on the top and the name of the cream.  Inside is a nice and light cream, which is absorbed quickly into the skin leaving it feel hydrated and smooth.  This product has no chemical preservatives, no artificial fragrance and no artificial colouring.  This steam cream is made from 100% organic argan oil and natural donkey milk (from italy!).  Donkey milk is apparently known to be more nutritious than milk or goat milk and it is also most similar to mothers’ breast milk.  The cream delivers intense hydration and nutrition deep down into your skin and it is the whipped cream like texture that allows it to absorb softly and quickly.  This cream doesn’t really smell of much, so it is suitable to use anywhere that is needed.  This can be used on face, hands, body and hair.  Check out the Skin Ceramic website HereApparently it is donkey milk which Cleopatra used to bathe in every day, so lets hope it is as good as she thought.

Enesti

Enesti Rice & Milk Foam Cleanser – 120ml – $15 (£8.91)

Another product with cute packaging, it looks so pretty.  This is a foam cleanser which is made from mineral rich hot spring water and is packed with rice and milk extracts.  This product is designed to thoroughly cleanse deep into your pores and deliver rich moisture to leave you skin glowing.  You should remove your make up first before using this cleanser.  Lather up the foaming cleanser in your hands and then use the foam to massage over your face before rinsing off.  I do like cleansing products like this as they leave your skin feeling really clean and soft, it is something I should definitely use a lot more of.  This is a nice product to add to my bathroom cupboard.

pure smile choosy pure smile choosy

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack Milk – $1 – 60p

Here is a more unusual product.  I must say I have never seen anything like this before.  This is pretty much like a face mask but for your lips!  It contains milk protein extracts for strengthening the moisture level and reviving the glow of your lips.  You just apply the patch to your lips to achieve silky smooth lips.  This patch is to be left on for 15-30 minutes, I guess my partner will be happy with that as it will keep me quiet for that time! So only use this when you don’t want to talk, if you are like me then this will probably be a struggle! Think I had best use this when I am home alone.  On the back of the packaging there are funny diagrams again, don’t know why I find them so amusing!  But it also looks like you can use these patches somewhere else other than your lips!  Not too sure why you would want to, but that maybe what some people want to do.  It will definitely be interesting using this for the first time as I have never tried anything like it, but there is a first time for everything.

Verdict

I absolutely love this Memebox, I think it is great.  There is such a good selection of full sized products and I get to try products which you can’t get in this country, I love being able to try new things.  The milk theme is great, and not something I would have thought about when it comes to beauty products.  The box was just jam packed with lots of goodies, and how cute are they! This is now definitely my new obsession, there are so many boxes to choose from as well, I can see why people order so many of them!

The boxes are very cute and bright pink, they come very well packaged and there were no customs charges which is great.  You don’t sign up to a monthly box, you just chose from the vast choice they have on their website, and you can order as many or as little as you want! But you still get the surprise of the monthly boxes where you don’t know exactly what products you will receive.

Memebox Colorbox #2 Orange

2014-07-09 21.26.07

I was recently contacted by Memebox (pronounced Me, Me Box) who asked if I would be interested in trying one of their boxes to review.  Of course I was very excited about this and snapped up the opportunity.  I had not actually heard of Memebox before they had got in touch with me.  So I had a little look at their website and was excited to see that it was Korean beauty products, and I have always wanted the chance to be able to try some.

Memebox is a rapidly-growing, leading e-commerce beauty retailer born in Seoul, currently headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

Memebox curates only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. An extremely competitive industry, Korean cosmetics are renowned for their unprecedented quality developed through cutting-edge technology. At the forefront of the industry, Memebox is determined to deliver the enchantment of discovery through effortless experiences, at prices you’ll never say no to.

2014-07-07 20.34.13

The box I was sent was the Color Box #2, price of the box is $15.00 plus $6.99 shipping, approx £12.82, which I think is a fantastic price.  In the box I received 4 Full Sized products, which came to the value of $39 approx £22.73.  I love the fact they ship to the UK for only $6.99, this makes their boxes so accessible.  They have a very large variety of boxes you can choose from and they also ship to 45 countries!

http://us.memebox.com/memebox-global

2014-07-07 20.13.24

1. Dearberry Flirt Lipstick 06 Million Dollar Orange – Full Size $12 (£6.99)

I was scared to receive an orange lipstick, but it is more a blood orange colour, so more red than orange.  It works a bit like a lip stain as well as its that vivid and a strong colour, it lasts a long time on.  It has lots of natural ingredients, Olive oil, cocoa butter and cupuacu butter.  It has a buttery smooth texture, and you don’t need to apply much to obtain full coverage.  I am happy with this product and I love the bright pink packaging!! Very girly!

2. Dearberry Today Nail Laquer 10ml – Full Size $3 (£1.75)

I received colour #20 Fantasy.  It is a nice coral orange, which is fantastic for the summer.  It is very easy to apply and gives good coverage with just one coat, but I still apply two coats.  The Today Nail Laquer series offer over 40 different shades, so lots of colours to pick from.

2014-07-07 20.14.04

3. L’OCEAN Eye Shadow, Pastel Orange – Full Size $10 (£5.83)

This is a great colour, not too sure how I will use it though as I don’t often wear orange.  It applies very easily, and is velvety smooth.  You can tell it is a good quality eyeshadow and will be long-lasting.

4. Tosowoong Bronze Spectrum Waterproof Gel Pencil #11 Sunshine – Full Size $14 (£8.16)

This is a waterproof gel eyeliner, in a metallic orange colour.  It looks bronze in colour, and it very easy to apply and easy to blend as well.  This will be good to add a bit of brightness to your eyes.  At first I was unsure how you sharpen this, as the pencil itself is plastic, after looking it up it appears you just sharpen it like any normal wooden pencil.  That will be interesting to try when I need to.  I like this product, and it will come on handy for the summer.

ABM_1405044031

Verdict

So I was impressed with this little box, and I have already ordered another one!  I can’t wait for that one to be shipped.  What I love the most is the prices! They are very cheap considering they are coming from Korea, and I get to try products I wouldn’t normally try.  I was a bit unsure about getting the Colorbox #2 Orange, but I was pleasantly surprised, and these are products I could actually use.  I was scared of the colour orange, as it is something I would never normally wear.

The boxes are very cute and bright pink, they come very well packaged and there were no customs charges which is great.  You don’t sign up to a monthly box, you just chose from the vast choice they have on their website, and you can order as many or as little as you want! But you still get the surprise of the monthly boxes where you don’t know exactly what products you will receive.
