Unboxing: MeMeBox Oriental Medicine

10. July 2014

I was so excited about the MeMeBox Oriental Medicine since the moment I ordered it! There is always a kind of fascination about products containing oriental herbs, because they work really great in a sometimes magical way. MeMeBox describes this box a “key to youth” which makes it even more promising. Here is what I received in my newest MeMeBox:


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 like the ones I reviewed previously (check out the links at the end of the post), 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…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.

The MeMeBox Oriental Medicine is described the following way:

“A favorite beauty regimen among Queens in ancient Korea, oriental medicines were used to revitalize and balance exhausted skin, giving them a beautiful and enchanting glow. Designed to improve softness, luster and elasticity, the mystical properties of oriental medicinal extracts leaves skin looking healthy and youthful. Great for all skin types including sensitive skin, oriental medicinal extracts improve the skin’s functions of regeneration, anti-oxidation, anti-inflammation and moisturization.” 

Every box contains an overview card with the products and a description for the products. It is in English, which is great, especaially when the product packaging is only in Korean.


All in all we have 6 products: 2 of them are sheet masks, 3 are fullsized products and one is a deluxe sample kit. A great content for the tiny box as I must admit. :) Let’s see what each product is about:

1. Shib Jang Ceng Chun Ji Heang Hands Cream – 80 ml for US$17 (fullsized product)

This is a huge tube of hand cream with a nice scent. It feels nice and moisturizing on my first try and I will definitively use this up. It contains gingseng extract, shea butter and olive oil and is described as highly moisturizing. My first quick test was positive. :)

2. Purederm Korean Herb Mask – 19 ml*2 for US$2 (fullsized product)

4 different masks were available. I received the moisturizing mask called “Soo-an” and the brightening mask called “Myung-an”. The other masks were a refining mask and a hydrating masks, although I don’t know what the difference between the moisturizing and the hydrating mask will be. I didn’t try these yet (thanks to MeMeBox my decreased pile of sheet masks is growing again), but I really do like the packaging design. It looks very beautiful ♥

3. D’RAN Wonder Serum – 30 ml for US$30 (fullsized product)

I’m really looking forward to try this. It is said that it is made from 20 different Korean medical herbs like ginseng, black hoof mushrooms, licorice, portulaca and granoderma…It claims to give your face a deep nourishment and glowing complexion. Since I don’t have a serum in my skincare routine at the moment, I will add it. I hope it will make me look like a baby again, haha ;) In the direction it is written to use it before toner application. I would advice you to use it after toner, especially if you use a cotton pad for toner application. Otherwise you’ll wipe the serum off again.

4. Donginbi Donginbidam Red Gingseng Aqua Oil & Red Ginseng Aqua Pack Essence – 50 ml*2 for US$90/180 (deluxe sample with 5 ml*2)

Another product I’m really curious to try are these two. MeMeBox says that Donginbi is a super exclusive Korean department store brand. These contain red ginseng extract as main ingredient, which is known for it’s beauty-promoting properties. I will soon start trying these :)

5. Hanhui CC Cream – 50 ml for US$30 (fullsized product)

The last product is this beautiful CC cream containing ginseng extract, cactus extract and galactomyces fermented extracts. I will surely write a review on this one. I love trying new CC or BB creams.♥


In total I received a great box today. All the products are useful and interesting and the packaging of the products is beautiful, too. I cannot wait to try these on their efficiency :) Did anyone else order this box? How is your impression?

    It’s a great box. I’m always searching for Get it beauty videos and few days ago saw one chapter about herbal medicine, was awesome the use of all these herbs, roots and fruits.
    Take care ^^

    Oh that wonder serum seems to have really interesting ingredients! Interesting that a lot of the products have ginseng in them, I knew they are good for health when consumed, but never knew they were good for the skin too. :)
    Thanks for the unboxing, Memebox is so addicting! xD

    I just received this one today (and the milk box) and I was very impressed with it!
    I was suprised about how many full sized products there was, and everything sounded really promising.
    I am looking forward to using all of them, and I can’t wait to read your reviews about them as well!
