Yesterday finally my first MeMeBox arrived! I first wasn’t sure if I should order it, but after seeing so many boxes I simply had to try one box at least and ended up ordering two XD. This one is MeMeBox No. 6 called “Stay well and happy this winter”, contains a lot of nice products for winter skincare.
MeMeBox comes in a small pink box. It arrived via EMS although I ordered standard shipping, which made me really happy in first place. What is MeMeBox? It is a monthly beauty box for mostly Korean makeup and skincare products. Unlike most beauty boxes it is not a monthly subscription box, instead you can order all boxes which are available and you want to order. They sell out quite fast, especially since they gained a lot of popularity in the blogger community.
The box is densely packed with 8 products, which is a great amount compared to western beauty boxes like Glossybox, for example. Here is what I received in my box:
You can see, that nearly no space was left in the box. That’s definitively a plus! The box included an overview card where all the products are listed and described shortly (if you click to enlarge the image you will be able to read the text).
My box contained these items:
O’sum Aloe Vera Soothing Mist (80 ml / 15 $) – box contained full sized product
This is an aloe Vera Soothing Mist which can be worn before or after makeup or on its own. It contains natural ingredients and is suitable for sensitive and dry skin. This seems to be a nice product. Aloe Vera is always good for dry skin in winter, so I’m curious to try this. Also, O’sum is a brand I heard of before and was curious to try anyway.
Kovas Brightening Facial Mask (14 g/ 2.50 $) – box contained full sized product, that means one sheet mask
This is a brightening sheet mask for the face. It doesn’t contain parabens, fragrances alcohol or pigments and thus might be a nice mask for sensitive skin. I didn’t try it yet, and it is the least spectacular product in the box, but still nice, since I love using sheet masks and it fits to the topic of the box.
Recipe by Nature Spray Essence Water (140 ml /35 $) – box contained full sized product
This spray essence water contains a lot of beneficial skincare ingredients like minerals and vitamin and is supposed to nourish and hydrate the skin. It also contains essential oils. It doesn’t contain mineral oils, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, Triethanolamine or parabens. It is suggested to use this after cleansing the skin. I used it already once and I applied it after cleansing and toner. I love also the design of the packaging and from my first impression this is one of the highlights in this box for me.
Hanskin Bio Origin Wrinkle Talk BB SPF3ß PA++ (40 ml/ 39 $) – box contained 10 ml
Hanskin is also one of the brands I often heard but never bought. Probably because of the prices. I’m happy about this product because I love BB creams and this one seems to have a matching tone for my skin. Also the consistency of the BB cream is great, since it is not too fluid. The tube appears only half-full if you squeeze it- 10 ml are not much :'( But better than nothing :D
Nelafantasia One day Whitener Magical Whitening Lotion (120 ml / 26 $) – box contained 40 ml
The design of this whitening lotion is very girly and reminded me at Lioele’s design. This lotion creates a temporary whitening effect and can be used all over the body. I used it on my elbows and knees and it does show some differences. I didn’t try it on my face yet.
Kerasys Moringa Miracle Essence ( 50 ml / 13.5 4) – box contained 50 ml
This is the second highlight in the box. I love hair oils. They make my dry and frizzy hair look at least a bit more healthy. Also, I love the scent of this one. Funnily I’m using a Moringa scented Shower gel at the moment, so it fits perfectly. XD The design of the product reminds me of “Kerastase”, a salon brand you’ll find often here in Germany (and Europe ?).
Dr. Jart + silver Label Rejuvenating BB (50 ml / 29 $) – box contained 8 ml
Another BB cream from a brand I’ve wanted to try but never did, until now. :D Again the tube contains very little and you have to put some pressure on the tube to get the product out, which feels like the tube is half empty. The BB cream has again a shade, which might fit to my skin, luckily.
Laneige Snow Crystal Pure Lip gloss (5g/ 20 $) – box contained 3 g
Okay, this is probably the worst product in the box. First of all, I heard the same product was already included in another previous box, which is disappointing for those people. It is also the same color, which makes it even worse. The price for this lip gloss is also not justified in my eyes. It is a normal lip gloss with shimmering particles. Nothing I would buy personally.
All in all, I’m happy with this box and I can ignore the Laneige lip gloss. All other products will be used and I’m already curious to try and test them and write reviews for all of them :D The products are well balanced, there is some makeup, some skincare and something for the hair as well. Some boxes had foot or hand masks instead of facial masks, which makes even more diversity.
This box cost US$ 23 and US$ 6.99 for standard shipping (although it came with EMS in the end-yeah!).
I’ve ordered another MeMebox (No. 8), too, and I hope that the box will be as nice as this one. Another thing: I received an email from MeMeBox today that they will stop shipping outside US, Canada and Japan. this would be sad, because it means Box No. 8 will be also the last box I will receive from them.:( also, they change their homepage, so it might be you won’t be able to access their web page today.
What do you think about the box? any product you like most?
