UNBOXING: Memebox Cooling Care Box

by - August 08, 2014

Okay, so last week there was a promotion on the Memebox website. They launched their Ready To Ship page, which I have to say was a completely brilliant move on their part. I haven't gotten a Memebox in over a month, but for over a month I've had 4 boxes on order that are due to be shipped within the next week. I admit it, I was fiending for a new box a little bit. Since they were running this promotion for only three days and I had some Memepoints, there was no question as to whether I was going to order a box but rather how many I was going to order. And I almost ordered 4, but I decided to be at least a little bit responsible and only ordered one. And it arrived today! First of all... Express shipping for life, okay! I love that I didn't have to wait 3-4 weeks for this and got it in my hot little hands now. Can't wait for the ones that are about to ship. 

NOW. Let's take a closer look at what I received...

From the Memebox website:

We promise.
The first time I saw this box, I actually wasn't all that interested - if only because I had no idea what could possibly be include. Okay, also because it wasn't due to ship until August 1 and I figured that by the time it got to me (via snail post) it would just underscore the fact that summer is too damn short. Yes, I think in these kinds of terms when shopping, I can't help it. Anyway, the thing that sold me (other than the free upgrade to express shipping and the fact that it was ready to ship the day I ordered it) is that the spoiler product was the Secret Key Intense Ice Sleeping Pack, which I had just added to my ever growing Korean Product wish list a couple of days earlier. Ordered. 

Now... onto the products:

1. Organia White Organia Aloe Vera Soothing Gel - Full Size Product 300g - Retail: $5
This is actually a pretty sizable tub of aloe gel and unlike (it seems) everyone else in the world, I don't actually have any after sun products on the go. Granted, that's probably because of my obsessive love of SPF. However, my boyfriend is both anti-sunscreen (until I can get him a big bottle of the organic stuff) and obsessed with aloe. There's still a good chunk of summer left and I have a feeling that this is going to get a good amount of use. Or... at least I hope summer is warm and long enough for that to happen. Not the highest value product I've ever gotten from Memebox, but one that I'll happily use.

2. Secret Key Intense Ice Sleeping Pack - Full Size Product 100g - Retail: $22
This is the product that paid for the box for me... and tipped the scale for me to buy it. Essentially, it was on my wish list after an intense peruse of BeautyNetKorea early last week, so when it was the spoiler product and the retail of it covered the cost of the box everything else just became extras. This product is one to be put on at the end of your nighttime skincare routine and washed off in the morning. It's said to have a deep soothing, moisturizing effect with long term brightening benefits. Pretty good claims, right? I'm really looking forward to trying this, as I've been wanting to try a sleeping pack for a while. It'll probably go on my face tonight... so maybe there'll be a bit of a review next week!

3. awesome Aqua Whip Hug Foam Cleanser - Full Size Product 120g - Retail: $18
I'm actually in the market for a new cleanser. I've been finding that the huge bottle of Purity cleanser that I'm trying to work my way through isn't getting it done. However, one of the boxes that I'm waiting for this month is the cleansing box, so I think I'll be swimming in it. However, this one does look pretty good. Strangely enough, this Korean product contains Canadian glacier water. It's said to be an extremely pure fine, soft whip cream to gently and effectively penetrate deep into your pores. "Experience the difference with what Canadian glaciers have to offer!" I'm so amused. And concerned that the weird English on this product card is effecting my English. Anyway, I'm happy with this product and looking forward to trying it out as well.

4. The Skin House Aloe Water Mist - Full Size Product - Retail: $11
I LOVE MISTS. Is anyone really surprised that I'm really happy to get this product? Because, really, if they were to make a whole box of different mists I'd definitely buy it. Hey, Memebox people, can you make a whole mist box??? Anyway.  This mist is said to be packed with aloe moisture to deliver instant replenishment to dry or irritated skin. I like the sound of it and I feel like I'm going to really like it. I did give it a little spray and it smells sogoodomg. I'm going to mist the crap out of myself with it soon. Any minute now.

5. N.S.M. Reborn Sorbet Melting Tiny - Full Size Product 5g - Retail: $18
So. This is orange and I put it on my lips and it sets to a really matte, really dry finish that feels kind of uncomfortable on the lips. Unfortunately. I usually love getting makeup products in my Memeboxes, but I think that this one is a bit of a fail for me. I don't even think I have anyone in my life who I think would be really into a matte orange lip colour. Maybe I'll keep trying it until I convince myself that my skintone can handle orange. Or until my mother gives me that look she always does when she sees me with lips that skew too warm. It's pretty ghastly, it'll ruin any hope I have for this thing. Apparently this is supposed to cover bad breath too. Weird. 

Total # of Products: 5
Total Value: $74

Now, this is by far my lowest value Memebox. However, I feel like the prices of these products aren't being skewed higher, which I absolutely love, and I really am excited about 80% of what I received, so I'm not complaining at all. Also, how do you complain about something that's worth 3x what you paid for it, even if you're used to a box being worth 5x more. Either way, I'm really glad I ordered this  box and looking forward to trying out the products in it.

If you're interested in checking out Memebox, I highly recommend it. It's a beauty box service from South Korea that has a myriad of different types of boxes for a very affordable price. They also have a shop where you can purchase stand along products without a box. Seriously, what are you waiting for?
