  • 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 #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!

 

BirchBox ~ March 2014

Today I received my birch box in the mail and It was much better than last months.  BirchBox is a subscription service thats sends you 4-5 sample products for $10 plus tax. If your interested in signing up you can use my referral link here.

I also heard that if you sign up now and use the code BB100 you get 100 points which is equivalent to $10 in there store.

Don’t forget to fill out your profile as soon as you sign up so you don’t get the crappy box.

march

Stila Lip Glaze in Pink Dragon fruit

This deluxe sample is only slightly smaller than the full size. They sell this size at ulta beauty for $8.

Size: 0.05fl oz vs. full size 0.08fl ozmarch6

Jergens BB body perfecting skin cream

It claims to perfect your skin in 5 days. Hydrates, Illuminates , evens skin, firms and corrects. Sounds too good to be true especially at only $12 for the full size. It also smells very sweet and has a bit of a floral scent as well. About a $2 value for the sample size.

size:1fl oz march4

Previse HydroMilk

Its funny because when I first previewed my box online I thought I was getting a bigger sample because of the Image but when I saw this little tiny packet I was a little disappointed. Its a body lotion and compared to the huge sample of body butter I received in this months Ipsy this is a total let down.

Air Repair Rescue Balm All-Purpose Skin Salve and Lip Balm

The Same Thing with this product I thought I would at least get a good sample of this since its just a salve but There is barely enough in this sample for 2 lip applications. The tube is about the size of my pinky and Its has less than a dime sized amount. Its smells like Lemon Grass and feels like Vaseline.march5

Keims Cleanshine Energizing Shampoo

This was actually a really good sample size at 50ml! Its probably enough to try for a week. I tried it today and it doesn’t lather… Its also very runny and leaks from the tube if you don’t close it properly.  Value $1.90.march2

This box was much better than last months box and I was much happier with the sizes of these samples. Total box value was about $11.90 not including the two teeny tiny samples. This barely breaks even with the cost of the box But I think Its because they have such a good points program. You get 10 point for each review you do on samples you receive. When you reach 100 points you get $10 for the shop to buy full size products! With just two boxes I already have enough points for $10 off. Yay!march1

Thank you for reading!!

Ill be receiving my March Escape Monthly box soon so don’t forget to subscribe! —->

Free From Sephora!!

Sephora has a free rewards program where you can accumulate points with purchases you make. Every dollar you spend is 1 point and once you reach 100 points you can get a free deluxe sample of a featured product.

If you wait until you accumulate 500 points you can get a limited edition set! Your points don’t expire so you can take you sweet time collecting them and have a nice surprise when you reach 100 or 500 points. Although I think its better to wait til you reach 500 points because its usually worth more.

On my Recent trip to Sephora the Cashier informed me that I Finally Had collected 500 Points. Yay!

They Gave me {what I think is the best 500 point gift so far} a Benefit Set!

girlmeetspearlIt Came With a Full Size Girl Meets Pearl Highlighter { $30 Value} a Bene Tint Mini 0.13 fl oz and a Bad Gal Lash Mini 0.14 oz!
girlmeetspearl1They Give all this to you In the cute little box labeled Sweet to meet you! Things are so much better when there free!

I think they Have a L’Occitane Favorites set right now for 500 points too and it includes 5 deluxe samples.

Another Awesome Benefit of being a Sephora Beauty Insider Is that they give you a free Birthday gift every Year! 

In 2013 Sephora Gave me a Sample size They’re Real! mascara and Watt’s Up! highlighter. This Year they are giving a mini Make Up For Ever Lipstick and mascara! Too bad I have to Wait Until August.
