Memebox Mini #1 Review

I did a detailed explanation of MEMEBOX in my first box post here.mini2

This is the 1st of 3 mini Memeboxes they released so far. These boxes are supposed to contain 3-6 beauty product samples and foil packets from Korea. I had to try this box since it was only $15 including shipping and I also purchased another as a gift for my friend. This box looks a lot like a Sample Society box or Birchbox.

 

Below on the right is the original sized Memebox and of the left is the Mini Box.mini1.Holika Holika Skin & Good Cera Super Cream 4ml

Value: $4.50

Product details: This super hydrating cream lasting for over 72 hours is made from purely ceramide and arugula extracts. Frist, ceramide is one of the three main components of our skin cells and works to protect our skin and prevent moisture from escaping. The arugula extracts also create a protective barrier over your skin for strengthening and reviving healthier looking complexion.

Please excuse the cat fur lol This is a repeat from one of my lucky boxes and I kind of wish they brought something new and exciting in for the first mini box.

This is a very rich cream that left my face feeling slightly greasy but I’m hoping it will help with my dry patches. You only need a very small amount so this may last longer than I thought.

luk2.Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB spf 30 PA++ 5ml

Value: $9

Product Description:An entire bottle full of nutrition of an ampoule, this highly enriched Ampoule BB offers strengthening skincare effects as well as anti-wrinkle functions. Packed with extracts from royal jelly and tabebuia avellaneda, it will deliver rich nutrition and deep relief to your skin. Its light, oil-based texture will glide on your skin as if wrapping the skin with silk or velvet for a much brightening, glowing complexion.

I love that even though its a tiny sample they still put it in a glass dropper. Its so cute and when I finish all the BB cream I can fill the dropper with something else. ^.^

mini43. A true Black Tea All day long Sun cream 10ml

Value: $7.80

Product description: Made from Ronde Du Soleil Blending of black tea, orange zest and cinnamon, This long-lasting sun cream will protect,soothe and hydrate your skin all day long.

This has a strong floral fragrance that I just can’t stand and I wouldn’t put anything with this much fragrance on my face. I’ll probably just give this to my mom since she loves floral scents. 
mini54.Botanic Hill Boh Moist Radiant Youth Ampoule Essence 5ml &

Botanic Hill Boh Moist Youth Ampoule Essence 4ml

Value $4 each

Product decryption:Botanic Hill’s Popular moist youth & radiant youth ampoule essences will work to nullify signs of fine wrinkles and to brighten up your overall skin tone for a younger looking, more radiant complexion. 

These were also a repeat from a past box. These smell like rose and I usually don’t like floral scents but so far it isn’t too overpowering. mini15.Verikos Ultra Matte Velvet Primer 3ml

Value:$3.90

Product Description:The Perfect Primer for oily skin types, Verikos ultra matte velvet primer will softly yet thoroughly smooth out your uneven skin texture covering and filling in all visible pores and fine lines on your face. It also helps maintain moisture/oil balance and evens out your complexion with vitamin A and Vitamin E ingredients.

I love the way this primer feels so silky.

They also Sent me 2 foil packets of Witch’s Pouch Real skin Moisture Ampoule base.

This item wasn’t listed on the information card but I think its just a moisturizing serum you can use before make-up.

mini7The mini box has a total value of $33.20. Everything in this box was no bigger than my pinky and although it was only $15 I think I’ll just stick to the regular memeboxes. I wish they would have included at least one deluxish sample because this box lacked excitement. I thought since the regular memeboxes usually have a crazy value then the mini boxes would too.  Maybe If your new to memebox and just want to try out some korean goodies then this mini box is perfect especially if you use your points.

Hang Ten Classic sport SPF 50  1 fl oz

Value $2.20

Discount: Receive 25% off your purchase

This product protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays and is Oxybenzone Free, Paraben Free, Retinyl Palmitate Free, Non-Greasy, Non-Nano, Synthetic Fragrance Free. It has 80 min of water proof protection and after trying it today I found it to be very lightweight. This is one of the few products I’ve found on Ipsy that I’m really excited to repurchase! It smells like your typical sunscreen but I think it may have a hint of coconut. This is a definite repurchase!

may5

Pur~lisse Hydra-balance moisturizer .5 oz

Value $14

Discount: Receive 30% off any purchase

The full size product is a bit expensive at $55 for only 1.7 oz. It has no harmful chemicals and it contains soy protein, white tea, Lupine Peptides, Blue Lotus Flower, vitamin E . This moisturizer absorbs almost instantly and has almost no scent. I do like it but so far it doesn’t seem worth $55.

Value $5.49

This brush is a bit rough but I kind of like it. It gets the job done and thats all I need.

Pacifica Eyeshadow Duo 

Value $4

I was so excited to try a pacifica eyeshadows but they let me down. The white side is shimmery with small specks of glitter and the purple, grayish side has almost no pigment at all.

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

  • Memebox puts together a random assortment of the best Korean skincare/cosmetic products. Usually about 4-8 items and the Value is usually more than triple the amount you payed.
  • They offer discounts on top of the incredibly cheap price and you can sometimes buy boxes for about $6.
  • Memebox is not a subscription company with a recurring charge every month. Instead you get to choose which boxes you would like to buy and which you would like to skip.
  • They release more than 1 box a month and they even sometimes release more than 5 a month but thats what makes it so fun to follow

This is the Memebox Mask Box #2!  This is a special edition Box that is dedicated to masks.

maskbox8maskbox11.KeySkin Gold Hydro Gel Eye & Spot Patch {60 eye patches + 30 Spot Patches) ~ Value $49

Product Description

This eye mask & spot patch combines gold , Ginseng, snail essence, collagen, and more, all in one! The eye mask contains a high concentration of potent ingredients that will both moisturize your eye contour area while preventing any development of wrinkles. All the ingredients in these masks are highly effective for cell-regeneration and recovery.

Like most masks you just have to apply these to your under eye area after toner and leave it on for 15-20 min. They smell really clean and come with an applicator to help get the gel strips out of the container. They also come with spot patches which you can place on certain areas that need extra love.

Tip: Pour a bit of hot water into a small cup and place your used gel strips inside of the water so they could melt down. Then you can use the liquid essence to moisturize  your body.

maskbox62. SN Yew Tree Stem Cell Perfect Calming Soothing Mask (Set of 2) ~ Value $8 Each

Product Description

Yew Tree Stem Calming soothing mask is infused with yew tree stem cells, various plant extracts and other natural ingredients that will transform the skin and bring it back to life. Stem cells are known for the invigorating properties – this mask is sure to give your skin the boost it needs!

maskbox53.LJH Tea Tree Mask ~ Value $3 each

Product Description

LJH’s Tea tree mask is a facial sheet mask that soothes all skin troubles and controls excessive sebum through tea tree oil. This mask also enhances the complexion and brightens any dark spots. 

LJH brand again! I love trying new tea tree products so this will be the first mask I use. Plus it helps brighten dark spots and I need all the help I can get. I think the products Ive been using are actually starting to fade my dark spots but I won’t believe it until they are gone.

maskbox44. Mask Sheets Bio Medi-Curing Mask-Aqua Dressing 20ml ~ Value $3

Product Description

This mask hydrates and moisturizes your skin to the fullest. It is a 100% coconut jelly mask, which gives your skin a “cool” feeling it also dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines.

Coconut Bio Mask with Tomato 20ml ~ Value $3

Product Description

This is a 100% coconut jelly mask combines with the super food: Tomato! Similarly, this mask gives your skin a “cool” feeling. It also dramatically reduces the appearance of any wrinkles.

I received these masks in my Luckybox #2 but I still haven’t tried them.  I was given a tip by Joanne Mallon on  my lucky box 2 post that the jelly mask is actually hidden in-between two sheet.

maskbox25. Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack ~ Value $3

Product Description

This ultra-hydrating gel patch  was specifically designed for the lips. It intensely moisturizes and nourishes your lips – preparing it for any make up application. 

Ive never seen a lip mask before but this will come in handy when I have really chapped lips. Although it looks like it might be kind of uncomfortable to have a patch over your mouth for 20 minutes. They actually sell this brand of masks at my local Japanese market.

6. Purederm Exfoliating Foot mask ~ Value $17

Product Description

Purederm Exfoliating Foot Mask is a foot exfoliant and treatment that comes in the form of a pair of wearable masks that work just like socks. It Removes all calluses, visibly smoothing your feet within 2 weeks. Papaya, Lemon, apple, orange and other natural botanical extracts help remove calluses, while chamomile extract calms freshly exfoliated feet.

How to use

  • Thoroughly cleanse your feet and put on the masks
  • Remove after 60-90 minutes and rinse of with water
  • Calluses start peeling off 4-7 days after use. Nearly all calluses will be removed in a further 3-5 days depending on the thickness. Do not use a callus remover or pick on calluses when they start peeling off. 

Im so excited to try this! I actually saw these type of masks online and I wanted to try them but didnt want to pay shipping on just one item. I really hope these work because it would be so amazing!


 

The Mask Box has a total value of $100 but I think its a little inflated. I found the gold eye patches on ebay for no more than $20 so if that is the case then the actual value is around $70. Thats still a high value considering I only payed around $17 because of my points. This box usually would cost $23 plus shipping. I love the deals that I get with Memebox!

I’ll try to post reviews on all these products after I use them but I like to save masks for the days I have time to relax and take a bath. I will definitely be posting an update for the foot exfoliator since it promises the most dramatic results.

Thank you for reading !!

This is LuckyBox #3 ! Lucky Boxes are a compilation of the most popular products from past Memeboxes. This particular box has items from Memeboxes #2 – #8 and one of the items is a repeat from Luckybox #2.luk6

beauty3

1. Dr.Jart V7 Eye Serum ~ Value $38

This Eye serum helps treat common darkness and puffiness. It was made of a complex of 7 vitamins, A, B3, B5, C, E, H,and F. Its supposed to brighten the skin and get rid of dark circles. I actually have the worst dark circles and I received two bottles of this {in lucky box #2 & #3} so I’ll be able to really test this out. This has no fragrance and so far I really like it!

luk102.Lanoa Natural Soap Sulfer 100g ~ This is full size and the Value is $12

Product Description 

This handmade soap is made from natural ingredients including 100% natural sulfur, Shea butter, chamomile and lavender. It is specially designed for sensitive and dry skin. It deeply nourishes, hydrates, and protects skin. This product is free of surfactants, hardeners, preservatives and any artificial fragrances. 

Its like this soap was specially made for me! Im really excited to try this and I hope all the claims are true. This is meant to be a face wash and It smells like most other natural products do. {Like plants and citrus}
luk93. LJH Dr’s care Vita Propolis Ampoule 5ml ~ Value $8.67

Product Description

The perfect combination of propolis and vitamins naturally enhances and improves your facial luminosity. The high concentrate of propolis in the ampoule hydrates, soothes and protects your skin. This product has been dermatologically tested for sensitive skin. 

How to use

Apply 2-3 drops on your face after moisturizer. It is highly recommended that you use this product in conjunction with a facial moisturizer or nourishing essence. 

I like the  Tea tree essence by LJH that I received in my lucky box #2 so I’m hoping that this is just as good. Its such a tiny sample that I’m not sure if I’ll actually be able to tell if it works or not from just using 5ml. I do like that even though its a baby sample that it still comes with a glass dropper.

luk24. Ryoe Jayang Yunmo Anti-hairloss hair pack 100ml ~ Value $5.33

Product Description

This Hair pack prevents against hair loss as it includes a high concentration of herbal extracts. The oriental herbal extracts will keep both your scalp and hair healthy and hydrated without leaving it oily. 
luk55. HeartFace Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack 20ml ~ Value $9.80

Product Description

Ultra Pore Care Sleeping Pack that keeps your skin moisturized all night long. Additionally, it minimizes your pores and controls sebum production while your asleep.

The Jar is slightly larger than a quarter but I think I can squeeze a months use out of it. It does have a fragrance but its not overpowering which is good since you will have to sleep with this on. It absorbs well into your skin and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy afterwards. Ive actually tried BOSCIA sleep mask and I found it was so greasy that lint was sticking to my face. { Ewww! }

luk46. Derma:B Daily Moisture Body Lotion 100ml ~ Value $4

Product Description

Derma:B daily moisture body lotion provides 24-hour hydration, leaving skin feeling both softer and smoother. Also, the natural ingredients of phytoncide calms irritated skin. 

I tried a tiny bit of this on my hands just now and even though it mentions that it contains natural ingredients, it doesn’t smell like it. The Lanoa soap smells natural and pleasant but this has a perfume scent. For those of you who don’t mind the fragrance then from the small amount I tested it doesn’t feel overly greasy. Ill be passing this along to someone else since I can’t stand the scent.

lukluk17. Holika Holika Skin & Good Cera Super Cream 10ml ~ Value $3.17

Product Description

This Ultra-hydrating cream not only hydrates the skin but also enhances the water-holding capacity of the skin, thanks to its powerful hydrating ingredients “ceramide” 

This sample is probably smaller than a quarter and in the second picture I show that the bottom is hollowed out slightly. I wouldn’t consider this a deluxe sample and I would have preferred a bigger sample of this instead of the Derma:B lotion. The full size versions of both creams cost about the same amount anyway.


luk7luk8
8. Miguhara B.P Cream 3ml x 2 ~ Value $3.70 each

Product Description 

This Dual-function cream serves both as a BB cream as well as a primer. It keeps skin silky and even-tones, while controlling excessive sebum through its oil-free formula.

I actually really like this because it feels like it just disappears into the skin and it gives a light coverage. The only downside is that you only get a small amount of product in these tiny samples. As you can see from the second photo, the product fills up less than half of the tube and that was before I opened it. This will only be enough product for maybe less than a week.

luk119.  Flower Men Energy Factory Moist Boosting Sheet Mask- Hyaluronic Acid 25g ~ Value $4 each

Product Description 

A super moist mask sheet that contains concentrated Hyaluronic acid plus its as big as PSY’s face, meaning double the pampering. 

How to use 

After apply toner, place mask sheet over your face evenly 

Remove sheet after 15-20 min

The mask is folded up in the bottom part of the Psy face and the rest is just empty. I was actually playing around with it. [You can poke out the eyes and pretend to be Psy lol ] I haven’t gotten around to using one of these since I just received this yesterday but I can’t wait to try it, I just hope its not too big.


This box had a total value of $96.37. I didnt pay much for this box either, maybe only $15 because of my points. This box would usually cost $23 plus around $7 shipping. Luckybox #3 had a lot of small samples and a few of them definitely weren’t deluxe. Although I can’t complain because I didnt pay much for it and even If I did pay full price the eye cream alone would more than cover the cost of the box.

 I Love Memebox ❤ and my next box is already on its way! Its going to be a Mask only Box! They already released a spoiler: Keyskin’s Gold Hydro Gel Eye & Spot Patch.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to tell me below!

This is LuckyBox #2! Lucky Boxes are a compilation of the most popular products from past Memeboxes.

beauty1beauty71. Espoir Lip Gloss 4.4g ~ Value $15

You were randomly sent either the lip gloss or the lipstick in this box. I received the lip gloss in the color pk002 magic hour.  Its like a nude/mauve color and at first I didn’t think I would like it but it looks really nice on. I kinda wish I would have received the lipstick instead but It actually worked out in this case. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable on and they sent a very wearable color so I’m happy.
beauty62.Dr.G Bio-RTx Mentor Cream 20 ml ~ Value $14

I don’t know how this ended up being a popular item because it has so much fragrance. It smells exactly like my Living Proof Perfect Hair day hair styling treatment. I try to stay away from heavy fragrances in my skin care. For this item you were randomly sent either #3 which is for oily skin, #7  for damaged skin, or # 5 for dry skin. Memebox should have a profile to fill out so we can have more customized boxes. I’ll probably give this away since I have dry skin and this is specifically for oily skin.

 

beauty33. Dr.Jart V7 Eye Serum ~ Value $38

This Eye serum helps treat common darkness and puffiness. It was made of a complex of 7 vitamins, A, B3, B5, C, E, H,and F. Its supposed to brighten the skin and get rid of dark circles. I actually have the worst dark circles and I received two bottles of this {in lucky box #2 & #3} so I’ll be able to really test this out. This has no fragrance and so far I really like it!

beauty54.LJH Tea Tree 90 Essence 20ml ~ Value $12.80

 Product Description

      A lightly-textured tea tree oil formulated with sensitive skin in mind. Made from 90% tea tree extract, LHJ’s Tea tree essence 90 clears, moisturizes and brightens troubled skin, targeting acne and delivering nutrients deeply for a hydrated, vibrant complexion. key ingredients include sea buckthorn and Centella Asiatica, plants known to delay the skin maturation process and speed the healing of damaged tissue.

This may be my favorite item in the entire box! It definitely hydrates  and I’m actually hoping it will brighten my skin. I have a couple of dark patches that I’m hoping to get rid of. This absorbs almost instantly and doesn’t have any greasy residue left over. Everyone knows that tea tree helps treat acne so even if all it does is treat acne and hydrate my skin then its a win. 
beauty45. Nuganic Customized Sunblock Fresh SPF50pa+++ 40ml ~ Value $45

The first thing I noticed is that its only about half full and this is the full sized product. It was sealed but its hard to believe that anyone would pay $45 dollars for half of a tiny bottle of sunscreen. It also smells almost as bad as the Mentor cream. This Sunscreen claims to be a 3-in-1 sun protector with brightening and anti wrinkle properties. Im not going to totally dismiss this item until I try it and I will write an update as soon as I finish it.

beaty86. Miseenscene 2X curl Essence 30ml ~ Value $2

This is a leave in conditioner treatment that is supposed to provide volume and help dry damaged hair. you only need a small amount and you could apply this to damp or dry hair. I don’t see myself going out of my way to try and order this from Korea in the future. It does help tame frizz and hydrate but so does Its a 10 leave in conditioner.
beauty27. Mask Sheets Bio Medi-Curing Mask-Aqua Dressing 20ml ~ Value $3

Product Description

This mask hydrates and moisturizes  your skin to the fullest. It is a 100% coconut jelly mask, which gives your skin a “cool” feeling it also dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Coconut Bio Mask with Tomato 20ml ~ Value $3

Product Description

    This is a 100% coconut jelly mask combines with the super food: Tomato! Similarly, this mask gives your skin a “cool” feeling. It also dramatically reduces the appearance of any wrinkles.

I love face masks and I really can’t wait to try the Bio Medi-curing mask because its supposed to be hydrating and my dry skin needs all the hydration it can get.I also like that these are both made with coconut jelly because they sound like they are going to smell amazing and natural.


After I finish a couple of these products Ill make a detailed post of my thoughts.

They also sent me a cheat sheet with details on all the items they sent this month but while reading it I noticed a couple of misspelled words. It also said that the mentor cream was supposed to be applied to your hair when its clearly for your skin. I wish they would take more time writing these since this is the only way I’ll know the details about each product because most of the packaging is in Korean.

So far I really like Memebox and I think its so fun to try out new products which I usually wouldn’t be able to find on my own. Its also really affordable which is a plus because its hard to try new skincare products when they usually cost $50+. I feel like I may have already found a couple of favorite items in this box so far and I look forward to seeing whats inside my other boxes.

 

This Box had a total value of $132.80!!

Thank You for Reading!!! Tomorrow I will Be posting LuckyBox #3!

They Have 5 types of boxes Superboxes, Mini boxes, Naked, Memeboxes & lucky boxes. Regular Memeboxes usually have a high total value and they are a random assortment of beauty/skincare items. They Include Full sizes with a couple of deluxe sized samples (4-9 products total). Regular Memeboxes are always $23.

SuperBoxes are Usually brand themed or themed to specific beauty needs. They include all full sizes and range $32 – $7o. you don’t usually get as much bang for your buck with these.

Lucky Boxes are a way for people who just discovered Memebox to try the most popular items from past boxes. Usually Memeboxes sell out in days so this lets customers try Items they missed out on. Usually cost $23.

Mini Boxes were just released a couple of weeks ago. Its supposed to include 3-6 Deluxe samples and pouch samples. This box only costs $15 including shipping.

Naked Boxes are also a new type of box they just released which is only accessible if you were sent an email with a special link. These naked boxes aren’t a mystery like all of the other boxes. They list every item that will be included in the box and these usually cost $23. They released 7 of these boxes in a week and they sold out in hours.

Every Box is a mystery except the naked box and they sometimes release spoilers on there Facebook page. They don’t charge you automatically like most Subscription box companies. You get to pick and choose which boxes you would like to purchase and which you want to skip. Usually you have to preorder them in advanced since they sell out so quickly. I have to warn you that Memeboxes are really addicting because they have a great value and they help you explore the best Korean products. 🙂

NatureBox Review ~ February 2014

I decided to try NatureBox this month because my first box was 50% off and I’m a sucker for a good deal.

I don’t eat very healthy and I’m just going to say it … I’m kinda cheap. I never thought I would end up sticking with the subscription to NatureBox but After My first box I became hooked!

nature

There are 3 Boxes to choose from.

  • Nature box deluxe~ $19.95 Comes with 5 full snack bags {you choose from the dozens of different snacks they have}
  • Happy Snacker~ $29.95 Comes with 10 Full sized snack bags{5 different snacks/ 2 of each snack=10 snacks total} This is the one I ordered.
  • Smart Snacker ~ $49.95 Comes with 20 Full sized Snack bags {5 different snacks/4 packages of each snack =20 snacks}

My box came with 11 packages of snacks but I ate 2 as soon as it arrived! {so they aren’t in the picture but they were duplicates anyway}

Lets Start with my bonus snack! They included a extra surprise snack … isn’t that nice.

My bonus snack was the Everything bagel stix. These are a vegan sesame stick with poppy seeds, garlic and onions.

These are garlic and onion flavored cracker stick. They are very crunchy, filling and pretty good when your craving a savory snack.

Serving size:1/3 cup Cal:170

I also chose the Dried California Peaches because they were on the NatureBox favorite list.

They are Obviously dehydrated peaches. I didn’t care for them {they smell so awful} and wouldn’t order them again.

Serving size:5 peaches cal:100

natureboxI had to order The Chipotle Maple almonds because they are so weird!

I think these are a really good deal considering that your paying only about $3 per snack and at my local sprouts flavored almonds are $13 a LB.

These are my Favorite because they taste like sweet maple and then POW! the spicy chipotle kicks in. 🙂

Serving size:1/4 cup cal:170

Pear Praline crunch is a sweet pear flavored mixture of pecans and cashews. They taste Like diet sweetener so it takes a little time to get used to them. I think without the pear flavor these would taste better. I gave these away and I won’t be ordering these again either.

Serving size:1/4 cup cal: 160

naturebox2Cashew Power Clusters

These just taste like a cashew power bar with a hint of sugar. Yummy!

Serving Size:1/4 cup Cal:150

Dried Granny Smith Apples

These are So delicious!! They are sweet, tart and taste exactly like an apple. Unlike dried bananas and peaches these are still refreshingly delectable. They are almost like chips but a little chewy {in a good way}

I could easily polish these off 10 min…. who am I kidding 5

Serving size: 10 rings Cal:100

I no longer reach for chips and candy because I have these snacks now! Hopefully soon Ill combine Healthy eating with exercise and lose a little weight. {This is a good start}
