Memebox Scentbox #3

on July 7, 2014

Hey everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!

Just before the weekend, I received my first Memebox in the mail and I couldn’t wait to open it! Since this was sent compliments of the nice folks over at Memebox, there were no spoilers and I had no idea what I was in for… but I love surprises!

20140707-184811-67691771.jpgFor everyone who is not familiar with this company:

Memebox (pronounced Mi-Mi box) is currently the #1 beauty box provider in Korea, and arrived here in the US and other countries just recently! We strive to bring you only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. Korean cosmetics are renowned for their high quality and efficacy, and we’re really excited to bring this to you! Memebox carries 4 main types of beauty boxes: Memebox, Memebox Special Editions, Superbox and Luckybox. In addition to the box series, we also carry full-size, Korean beauty products in our Memeshop

The original Memebox comes packed with 4 – 8 full-size products and deluxe samples. Boxes in each Memebox series always contain the same products, and contents vary from hair and body products, to skin-care and makeup products.”

While Memebox is not necessarily a typical subscription service like that of Birchbox or Glossybox, its suggested that people sign up on the website to receive updates when new boxes are available. You can buy the boxes at anytime, but from what I have heard, they sell out VERY quickly.

 

So… back to the box. I opened it up and took out the card and discovered that it is Scentbox #3 Grapefruit – I love grapefruit!! Seriously, Memebox, how did you know that I was in the mood for citrus?

This card is your complete cheat sheet for the products in the box… all of the writing on the individual product packaging is in Korean.

This box includes:

 – Evas Mimi Lauryne’s Dress Perfume Mist de Grapefruit (full size included – $18 for 150ml)

20140707-184818-67698087.jpg

Mimi Lauryne’s Dress Perfume Mist is an all-round scented mist for refreshing and ridding any stances from your clothes, bedding, curtains, sofa, and even inside your car. A quick spritz of this citrus juiciness infused with grapefruit, lilac, orange flower, violet and musk fragrances will lift up your mood and spirit!

How to use:

Spray on the perfume mist whenever and wherever you wish to freshen up.

Feedback: So, I’m definitely going to use this as a linen spray, perfume, everything. This is such a light, lovely scent! 150ml is a LOT of product, but I have a feeling that I will go through this quickly!

 

 – Kael28 Sun Killing Grapefruit Gel (full size included – $30 for 270ml) 20140707-184820-67700627.jpg
With more than 16,000mg of real grapefruit extracts packed inside, this all-in-one ultra-hydrating soothing gel combines the functions of a toner, an emulsion, an essence, a cream, a soothing and a sleeping pack. Deliver deep hydration and treat signs of aging with this multi-player!

How to use:

Generously apply the product to cool and soothe irritated or sun-burnt skin. It is suitable for both facial and body use.

Feedback: this is very interesting. It is smooth and hydrating and leaves little to no finish. And this smells AMAZING. I disagree with the facial use, but that’s just my preference. This would be perfect after a trip to the beach!

 – Sun Smile Hydro Gel Choosy Fruit (full size included – $2 for 3ml x2)

Enriched with collagen, vitamin E , and jojoba oil, Hydro Gel Choosy Smile is an easy-to-apply, gel-type lip pack for delivering moisture and vitamin nutrition into your dry, chapped lips.

How to use:

Take out the lip patch from its packaging and place it over your lips. Remove the patch after 15-30 minutes and pat in the remaining essence for full absorbence.

Feedback: I didn’t get a chance to try these yet. I was a little nervous because I have a work trip this week and didn’t want any strange reactions!

 – Happy Fam Deo Fresh Grapefruit (full size included – $2 for 20 sheets)

Happy Fam Deo Fresh tissue with its powder formula allows you to quickly and easily refresh your sweaty, smelly underarms throughout the daytime.

How to use:

Take out a Deo Fresh tissue from its packaging and gently wipe it under arms.

Feedback: ok this description is funny… This smells great! After a long day, I used one and can say that yes, my sweaty underarms felt refreshed. These wipes were very nice. 🙂

 

Overall, I really liked this box. I am intrigued by the variety of skin, body and makeup products and combination of products on the website. I will likely be buying a Memebox soon!
