Memepeople contacted me the other day while I was holidaying in Croatia and asked me if I would like to receive a memebox from them and my answer was Yes, of course! I selected the Memebox Hair & Body Box of the choices.
I was elated to finally be rewarded for my efforts.
I have recently joined as their affiliate and was lucky enough to enable a huge group of my friends from the derm clinic before the holidays (they are from all over Europe) and my neighbors.
You have probably read about Memebox from other blogs, but let me tell you why memebox is so special;
1. They are not like normal subscription box. Memebox have it’s regular box and many other special boxes including themed ones (Memebox special edition), ones with only full-sized items (Superbox) and even items from previous boxes that you have missed (Luckybox).
2. It is currently the only box originally from Korea that ships globally.
3. The value of memeboxes are always double or more than the price you pay! There was even a box that values over $150 for only $23!!
4. You get a wide selection of products in your boxes. It is always a surprise unboxing one. One example is the recent Memebox #11 which includes a body lotion, a mask, a CC cream, nail polish set and a liptint!
5. You can get memeboxes for super cheap (read the end of this post)! They always have sales every now and then, and promo codes to top of with. I once got a box for only $0.99 with my memepoints. That is insane!!!
Okay, on to the unboxing!
Memebox was generous enough to ship my box via DHL! By the time I receive my tracking number, the box was already on my desk.
Look at the amount of products!!! The box itself is really heavy.
I will talk about each product in detail! Since I have gotten the box before, I have used almost all the products. I even brought some on my trip.
The information card is always super useful to have especially when some products are in Korean, so you need not worry.
1. Rosapacific 19 Real Neck Sheet 12g
Full sized: 12g ($3.50)
I have already reviewed this product and you can read it here. I will gift this to my bestie, and hopefully she will love it!
2. 1004 Laboratory Kiss the Perfume Brilliant Hair Treatment 300g
Full sized: 300g ($49)
This is my favourite of all the things in the Memebox Hair & Body! It has been included in one of the memebox loves alongside the Enprani Bounce Cheese Cream and TCFS Mist. If you would do a quick search, many memeaddicts wants this as a swap item. I do agree!
Look at the amount of details on this product! Even the inside of the box has description of all the ingredients used and the research done into producing it.
Ain’t it the loveliest conditioner you have seen?
Not only does it smell fantastic, this conditioner also makes my hair feel softer. I have pumped it into a miniature bottle and brought it with me on my travels and sitting next to someone, they thought I used a nice subtle floral perfume.
s 3. Annagaspi Brilliant Body Design Patch (2 pouch x 2= 4 pcs)
Full sized: 4 pcs ($17)
I tried this on my thighs the other day. It claims to reshape and firm swollen legs and feet, although on the package it does say you can use it on other parts of the body such as your lower back, arms or tummy. The patch itself is enough to cover the back of my thigh. It feels tingly upon minutes of application, and other than that it does not hinder my sleep. A tip is to make sure you clean the area you are applying to, and make sure it is dry!
So I slept in with the patch since you need 8 hours for optimum efficacy.
I woke up and took the patch off. It does not dramatically reduce my thigh fat, (lets be honest, what product does that overnight) but my skin does feel clammy in a pleasant way and firm. I think I need to use this more to see an effect.
This is cool, because I wouldn’t normally buy a slimming patch for myself!
4. SD Hair Steam Pack 30g
Full sized: 30g ($21)
This was the product they spoiler-ed before the box was released! I think those who love the concept of having their own hair spa at home would enjoy this product. In the description, it says the steam pack contains argan oil, royal jelly and black food. Hello luxurious nourishment!
It is the only one I couldn’t bear to use yet. I will, soon!
5. Kocostar Nail Therapy 4g x 3pcs
Full sized: 3pcs ($15)
Yet another full sized product! I have tried this the other day and I think it does work a little better than just applying cuticle oil or hand cream. The product itself is 5 little white masks soaked in a liquid that you can slip onto each of your fingers.
It is amusing to wear it and attempt activities around the hostel. My travelmates had a good laugh because I was looking like a proper bimbo. Definitely good thing to put on when you want a hunk to spoon-feed you food hehe.
More cute snippets of the info cards;
The Kocostar food therapy is going to be included in the Memebox Hair & Body #2! If you missed out on that, keep a watchful eye for Hair & Body #3!
6. Zivon Plu Scrub Oriental Jin 50g
Full sized: 200g ($25)— 50g ($6.25)
It is hand-sized, so that makes it travel friendly! No more dirt and gunk for beach day outs~
I was in this forum where memeaddicts gather, and everyone who got the box seem to love this scrub! It is super delicate unlike some sugar scrubs I have tried. What is interesting is that it contains red ginseng on top of other moisturizing ingredients like olive oil, macadamia oil, argan oil and other natural oils.
7. EVAS RoseMine perfume Touch 13g
Full sized: 13g ($17g)
Ain’t that the cutest packaging for a perfume~
It reminds me of Cath Kidson.
I got the Gleaming Bijou this time! My previous tube was Blessing Blossoms. I love both equally as I can’t decide which is better..
It might not be strong enough to be considered as a perfume, imho, but I realized that you can mix this with any of your clinic-smelling creams (yeah, those with psoriasis would know) and viola, floral scented lotion!
The consistency is gel-like with shimmery bits. After spreading, the skin feels slightly cool and shimmery (not a disco dust sparkle, but just a little).
($17g 8. Golden Glove Exfoliating Gloves
Full sized: 1 pair ($16)
Okay, who would pay $16 for exfoliating gloves…. but hey, since it comes free in this box I gave it a try. Let me indulge would with some Korean culture at this point. The younger members of a family would visit the bath house (called Jjimjibang in Korean) and give their elders a good back scrub. Even mothers would do this for their child.
This glove does what it says. It gets rid of the dead cells pretty effectively! Just apply body gel/ shower cream and scrub away. Be gentle, though, and go in small circles rather than roughly because you don’t want to get red streaks afterwards!
I think this is a great product to bring whenever I am visiting the sauna. I don’t have to worry about dropping my loofah on the floor (you know the floors are infested with bacteria and such). I just have to wear these and walk around scrubbing!
Overall this box is valued up to $144.75. But lets be realistic and slash that down to half. It’s still $70++ and that is triple the original price of the box itself- $23! You might need to add $6.99 to that for shipping, but hey, with all the discount codes and memepoints, you can get all this for nothing!
You can now get $3 off any memebox with this code (good until the end of June): 63D58FH1ZRLS
If you register now, you get 10 memepoints ($10) and shoot an email over to email@example.com saying that Veritazy.wordpress referred you. They will add up to $5 worth of points into your account. You may also purchase boxes that has $3 affiliate discount from my links here.
Lets break that down shall we;- if you are picking up say, the Memebox Skincare box;
Cost of box: $29.00
New membership: -$10.00
Referral points: -$5.00
Buy via my link: -$3.00
Use the code (63D58FH1ZRLS ): -$.300
Final price: $14.99
That is insane for a box that would probably be worth $80-100 or more. I think Memebox is way ahead of its competition. Keep up the good job, memepeople!
And you, Happy memeshopping!
