One of the best MeMeBoxes I bought so far was the MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist. I contained some great and really adorable product and was a main reason for me to buy the My Cute wishlist No. 3 and No. 4 aswell. Two weeks ago I finally received the My Cute Wishlist No. 3 Box and I must say, that it didn’t keep up to the first one unfortunately. But not all the products were dissapointing, there are also some nice items, although I think they should have given the box another name in first place. Let’s see what I received this time:
MeMeBox is a box service company, offering a wide amount of different beauty boxes. Unlike most western beauty boxes which have to be subscribed for on a monthly basis, MeMeBoxes can be preordered but that doesn’t force you to buy more than the desired box. They ship to many countries and the products they send in their boxes are mainly Korean. Apart from their monthly Global Boxes, they also have a huge amount of themed boxes, Mini Boxes, Boxes where you know what is inside, so called Superboxes with a higher value and so on (check out the links at the end of the post)…just check out their online store and you’ll find a huge selection of different boxes. Since they have become very popular within the blogger community they sell out pretty fast, but they bring up new beauty boxes so fast, that you cannot keep up with them anyways. At the end of this post I will make a list of all the discounts they offer at the moment, too.
From the first glance at the box I could tell the overall theme of the box was going towards “dolls/ dolly faces”. The box comes with a product description card like all the previous boxes. The card contains the imprtant informations for the products and the directions on how to use them.
1. Tonymoly Red Cheeks Girl’s Patch (full-sized product contained, 1 ea costs 2 US$)
These are gel-type patches which you can put on your cheeks in order to sooth dry and rosy cheeks. In principle it is like a sheet mask only in a patch form, similar to the patches available in My Cute Wishlist No. 1. It is nice to have a Tonymoly products in this box, even if this is only a “small” product.
2. Hope Girl Tinted Lip Balm (full-sized product contained, 5 g for 12 US$)
This lip balm remind me of Etude House Magic Tint Balm. It has the typical design of all Hope Girl products and comes with a leo-pattern lid. I’m actually not using a lot of lip balm, but it is always good to have one at hand. I don’t think that it is especially cute, but it will be of use at least. They selected between three different types randomly: Strawberry, Love Peach and Hot Cherry.
3. Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub (full-sized product contained, 10 g for 7 US$)
Perfect for winter. A lip scrub containing sugar and walnut shells for peeling and several oils for smoothing the lips. I will definitively try it out :)
4. Shara Shara Fairy’s Synergy Sun Cream SPF45 PA++ (full-sized product contained, 30 ml for 21 US$)
I think this product was causing a lot of dissapointment for MeMeBox lovers, because the doll is not regarded as cute to most people, as far as I did read other reviews. I would not count it as cute either, but I must say that the sun cream inside is great. It absorbs quickly, is not sticky and not greasy. It has UV-A and UV-B protection, too, and can be used as primer for makeup. The scent is nice and light too. So I’ll give the product a thumbs up, despite the doll- packaging. Unfortunately, the pump dispenser didn’t work. I contacted the support and I received 5 MeMePoints as a compensation…which is worth 5 US$ in total for a product worth 21 Us$….I don’t know if I’m too happy about it.
5. ddung Family Foam Cleansing Cream (full-sized product contained, 120 ml for 12 US$)
Although this has also a doll face inspired packaging I don’t think it is too badly designed. I didn’t try the foam yet, but it is always good to have some backup. There were two different kinds available, which were randomly selected for each box. I received the fruity version, but there is also one in a yellow tube called milky foam cleansing cream.
6. Youngwoosa Oh! It’s Lovely and Soft Cream (full-sized product contained, 45 g for 47 US$)
I love the design of this one. It is so asian-oldschool like…at least to me. The cardboard box is simple and yet adorable, with the scalloped openeing and the cream-type cream ismoisturizing and feels like a promising cream to me. I will put it into my routine next.
In general I think that this MeMeBox failed its theme a bit. Not everybody regards doll faces as cute, but it is also a matter of taste actually. Since it is a surprise box you have to be prepared to not get what you expect all the time. Actually, I bought quite some MeMeBoxes and this is the first time I had a more dissapointing feeling about the box. Thinking back to the Glossyboxes I have ordered I would definitively say that there were more times I was dissapointed back then. Another point is, that there are actually a lot of people who are in love with Shara Shara’s product design. for example: I love the design of the sheet masks I received with the MeMeBox Nakedbox. Unfortunatelly, a doll shaped pump dispenser is not everybodies tasting though…I don’t think that it is super ugly, but I wouldn’t put it in a cute-themed box after all. I must say the cardbox of the Shara Shara sunscreen is adorable though…and super girly, too. Despite of the packaging I must say that the product is really nice. The sunscreen absorbs quickly and leaves the skin non-sticky! I will definitively use it. I also like the moisturizing cream and the design of the packaging. I will try to use all the products for sure and I will keep you updated with more detailled reviews soon. Although this box didn’t fulfil my expactations I’m looking forward to MeMeBox My Cute Wishlist No.4 :)
