Hello! I am excited to report that I am totally loving my second Memebox. After my first experience with Memebox, I was a little scared of Memebox. However, the beauty of Memebox is that every box is different! This particular box was $29.99 but most boxes range between $20-$35. The only bummer issue with Memebox is that the boxes are shipped from Korea and unless you pay for expedited shipping (I do not unless I get it for free with different bundles) so sometimes it takes a long time to get to me. Occasionally I will forget I have ordered a Memebox until I get that fun pink package in my mailbox. And there’s nothing wrong with fun surprises!
Each Memebox comes with a card that explains what all the products are and how to use them, which really helps as most of the actual products’ packaging is mostly in Korean. I don’t personally speak Korean so I fear losing this card. The card is important, y’all.
Look at all the things I got! I’m not going to copy the whole card this time but I’ll paraphrase the things that are important.
1. Dr. MJ Bee Tox Control Cream: I really lucked out with this product. The card says that this cream is rich in skin-repairing agents like bee venom, propolis extracts, tea tree leaf water, rosemary extracts and calendula extracts. It says it will soothe, nourish and rejuvenate the skin.
I was afraid to try it before my wedding because… who wants to risk putting bee venom on your face before your wedding? But it turns out my fears were unwarranted and this is one of the best creams I have ever used. Not just in Memebox terms. I mean EVER. It feels SO NICE on the skin and makes my skin feel really healthy and hydrated. I had a little scab on my nose and after putting this on my face overnight it was very much noticeably smaller and almost completely healed. I couldn’t bee-lieve it. Heyo! Go bees! I was curious if other people were having the same success I was, so I googled it. I wasn’t able to find a ton of reviews but I found that it sells on Amazon for $65. Wow. I feel like even if I got nothing else in this box, this product paid for everything else.
2. Mstar Malus Intensive Hair Treatment: This product is a deep conditioner. The instructions say to apply it to towel dried hair and massage it into your hair with your hands or comb and let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse it out. Truthfully, that seems like a lot of work for me. I’ll likely put it on while I’m in the shower and let it sit while I shave and whatnot. It smells really good! Like apples! I’m excited to try this.
3. The Skin House Aloe Water Mist: I’ve never tried a water mist before this. The card says to use it whenever your skin feels dry. You can use it before or after makeup. I could see people maybe using this after a flight or something when you skin is dehydrated. I thought it might be sticky when I tried it, and it initially was for a second but it absorbed and it was fine. I’m also wondering if this would feel nice on sunburned skin?
4. Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence: I’m always going to be a little skeptical when I see things like “snail” and “bee” on a product I put on my face. However, after my success with the Bee Tox Control Cream, I thought I would try it!
The card is actually kind of confusing with this product. I had assumed it was a serum but then it says, “Instead of water, this facial essence uses snail secretion filtrate, bee venom and EGF to cleanse your rough, damaged skin from external stresses and pollution. In addition to the skin-trouble care, moisture supply, and skin tone improvement functions, it also help brighten up your complexion and remove signs of aging.
I’m going to still go ahead and assume it’s a serum. When I tried it, it seemed like it smoothed out my skin and also tightened it. That said, it wasn’t super hydrating. The tightening felt almost a little TOO tight so I needed to follow it with a moisturizer. You know, my new Bee Tox moisturizer. Man, I love that stuff.
5. E Choice Snow Brightening Body Cream: This cream is supposed to brighten skin and lighten uneven skin tones or pigmentation. This lotion was SUPER white. Like whiter than a regular lotion. It also didn’t seem to absorb really quickly. I am super white so I don’t need a whole lot of brightening and whitening. I would probably disappear.
6. Beauty People Miss 100 Auto Gel Pencil Liner: This is a basic eyeliner in a light coral color. It’s kind of peachy. A good neutral that you can use for a no-makeup makeup look. This liner can be used as an all over shadow and that’s probably how I would use it, too.
7. Blithe Patting Water Pack (pouch sample): This is another product that I don’t totally understand. Within the box, there are about 6 little packets of liquid. The instructions have a picture of bottles of product and they say, “After cleansing, fill 1/4 of the basin with water. Pour 1 lid-ful of the Patting Water Pack into the water and mix well. Then repeatedly pat oto your face with the water pack for 30 seconds. Do not rinse off.
So I guess, I’m supposed to pour one of those little packets into a sink of water and splash it on my face? They look like they are fruity so I think they will at least smell good.
I really liked this Memebox! I’m going to rate it a B+. I obviously loved the Bee Tox cream so much and I am interested in the deep conditioner, the Aloe Mist, and they eyeliner. I even liked the Snail Bee serum. I’m not so sure about the Brightening Cream or the Patting Water Packs.
