My First Memebox!!

Recently, this little box has been gaining a lot of traction in Canada and I was so excited to receive my own! MEMEBOX (prounouced me-me-box) curates the best Korean products and puts together themed boxes for purchase. They are not a monthly subscription, so you pick and choose which box you want to order. I really like that flexibility option because you get the products you actually WANT!

MEMEBOX Special #42 OMG 3
How much? $23
Shipping? It took about 5 business days to receive my package which is so fast considering it came from Korea!
Theme: The weirdest, coolest, and most eye-brow raising trends in Korea!

1. On the Body Makgeolli Soap - Buy Here
85g Full Size $12

I haven't tried this soap out yet. Apparently Makgeolli is a rice wine and has benefits due to the fact that it's unfiltered. I find soap gets messy around my counter top so I haven't broken into this yet. Will update you guys on Twitter/Instagram how this goes. The soap smells nice- kind of sweet and savory.

2. Cleomee Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist - On sale for $35
100mL Full Size $59

When I saw the words "donkey milk" I was definitely saying "OMG" as the box described. The three layers quickly melt together once shaken. It leaves a subtle but amazing scent after.The mist absorbs quite quickly and is not greasy after! It's just a personal preference that I don't like the feeling on my hands after rubbing oil in. This is a really neat concept though with cool ingredients!

3. Migabee Bee Venom & Honey Cream - Buy Here
50mL Full Size $54

This is a definite favorite from the box! The cream contains bee venom and royal jelly. I've been using this alot and it helps my dry skin stay hydrated! It also hasn't caused any sensitivities which is great. The texture of this thick but in a jelly form so it's really refreshing when you put it on your skin. A winner in my books!

4. Tonymoly Delight Tint Crayon - Buy Here
2.8g Full Size $8

This is my other favorite from this box! The color is a bright pink and the lipbalm smells really sweet and amazing! This also doesn't dry out my lips which is awesome! :) The cool thing about this product is that it's suppose to glow neon pink in the dark. Although you'll see from the swatches that the day time color is really bright already! But I guess I'll have try this next time I go out in the town ;)

5. Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack- Buy Here
150mL Full Size $19

I realized all the masks I've used before are sheet masks! This is the first time I used a mask like this. I think this would be really good for oily skinned girls. The product is suppose to tighten pores and get rid of blackheads. When I tried it, the product gets SO tight but in a good way. You definitely feel it working and you can see little circles around your blackheads/pores. After I rinsed it off, my skin felt really smooth! I would probably use this twice a month as a repair for my skin.

Value of Products: $152
Cost: $23
This box is an INCREDIBLE value! Even though a couple of the products may not be for me, I would definitely pay more than $23 for a good facial moisturizer and a chubby pencil. Currently they only have two boxes available online but I'm definitely keeping my eye out for future boxes!

You can purchase your own MEMEBOX here :)

Let me know what Korean products you like and what subscription boxes you have?
