ETA (07/24/14): MEMEBOX just added new deals! Buy any of these boxes and get memepoints (cash to use on your next order back). It's a referral only deal so it only works if you use that link, happy shopping!So I have an obsessive personality. Extremely so. So when I found out that Korea has a subscription beauty box service last month I promptly signed up and ordered a box. And then another. And then another. And another. So far I've ordered TEN boxes, all before I even received one. Yeah, I'm ridiculous. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you my newest obsession: Memebox.
As soon as I saw the word "Cacao" it was a wrap. I'd experienced great results with Missha's Choco Cacao scrub so I am more then willing to try out some more chocolate products, plus it just smells so damn good. So good. Like, mmm mmm good. I also quickly picked out the K Style box and the Mask#4 boxes, because I'm obsessed with Korean pop stars and face masks. This shouldn't be news to you if you have ever glanced at my Twitter.
Let's take a look at the Mask 4 box:
You see those When masks right there? Yeah, those sell at Sephora for $28 bucks for 4. I AM WAY TOO EXCITED ABOUT THIS. HOLD MY HAND. Something about buying quality stuff for WAY less than retail gives me a funny feeling down below.
The breakdown for the Mask 4 box ($23) is as follows:
1. Sua Young Berristure (Fullsize, $40)
Face cream with Acaiberry, Blueberry, and Cranberry. This literally smells like strawberry air freshener though, at as little bits that look like strawberry seeds that are actually little pieces of collagen. So cool.
2. SLCOSMETIC Soo Effect Plus Essence Sheet Masks x 3 (Repairing, Energizing, and Waterdrop Masks) ($2 ea)
Has tree, olive, aloe vera, and red ginseng extracts. Supposed to quickly and deeply moisturize the skin. Never heard of this brand but excited to try it.
3. WHEN 10:00PM & Travelmate Masks ($28 for 4, approx value is $14)
3D masks! The sheet is actually made from coconuts! The 10:00pm mask is for soothing and the Traveling mask is for treating UV irritated skin. So excited.
4. Skin Factory 7 Secons Morning Sheet (Fullsize, $39)
This 7 second wipe is an all in one mask, literally. Face massage, anti-wrinkle serum, dead skin remover, makeup remover, toner, emulsion, essence and more. What's also cool is you are supposed to store it in the fridge for optimal awesomeness.
5. Purederm Vitamin C Facial Pads (Fullsize, $12)
I'll go ahead and say I'm not totally optimistic about this. I'll admit I am a bit prejudiced against this brand purely because they sell it at Forever 21. However it's totally cute the pads look like little oranges and the ingredients look pretty boss. The third ingredient is Butylene Glycol (Vitamin C), followed closely by Orange Extract, Aloe, Gingko Biloba and Ginseng.
Now for the box I was the most pee-my-pants-excited for, The Cacao (aka Chocolate) Box:
The breakdown is as follows for the Cacao Box ($23):
1. Etude House Milk Talk in Cacao (Full Size $7)
Etude House is pretty much the cutest fucking brand on the planet. I am so excited to try this. They actually make a little foam cartoony puff that attached to the spout of it (sold separately) and I kinda wish I had that to complete what might have been an utterly cute experience.
2. Wonderuci Cacao Brightening Mask (Fullsize, $38)
Guh, just look at the prettiness. As soon as Memebox posted the spoiler of the Wonderuci Cacao Brightening Mask I knew I was in for some major happiness. Slather chocolate on my face? Yes please. And it's going to make it softer and brighter? A duh. It really does smell like chocolate pudding. I wonder if I'm fat enough to taste it? What am I talking about? Of course I'm fat enough. Stay tuned for my tasting review.
3. Pure Smile Choosy Lip Scrub Chocolate (Full size, $11)
This also smells amazing. Okay, this..THIS better taste good. I mean no one is cruel enough to make a chocolate lip scrub and it doesn't taste good, right? Right? If it doesn't I swear I'll burn this whole blog down.
4. Pure Smile Essence Mask Chocolate Milk ($1)
Yummo more choco for my already chocolate face :). This has milk protein, cacao extracts, vitamin E and collagen, designed to brighten the skin.
5. Evas Vitamin Cleansing Dessert Magic Cream Soap Coconut & Cacao (Full size, $18)
Gentle creme cleanser with coconut and cacao. I'm excited to try this only because I've never used a creme cleanser before so I'm excited to try this out. I honestly can't tell if I like the smell or not, it sort of reminds me of cocoa butter.
6. Purederm Nose Pore 6 strips (Full Size $6)
1-step strips for blackheads, whiteheads, and dirt. Probably the chocolate version of Biore strips. I just ordered the SkinMiso 3-step pore kit last night (it's supposed to be AH-MA-ZING) so it'll be interesting to see which works better.
Something I find interesting is that Memebox seems to have a new design for their boxes, I received both styles in this order. The Mask edition came in the old hot pink English box, and the Cacao came in the new black and pink Korean text box. Either way, both are cuteeeee. I'm really going to keep the boxes because my skincare can't just sit in multiple sephora shopping bags forever, nah what I'm saying'?
So if you can handle having to wait to get your boxes (Memebox lists the shipping dates on the items, sometimes they can be up to 6 weeks before they even ship out) then please do yourself a favor and just. do. it. I have zero regrets, just love. Both the Cacao and Mask 4 boxes are sold out, but Memebox routinely restocks sold out boxes so you might look out and snag one. Or pick something new out, like the new All About Lips box is SCREAMING my name. Someone gimme? Yes? Yes.
So check out Memebox and if you tell em' I sent ya, you'll get $5 off your order :)
