Remember when I told you all about the Memebox I got? It’s an international beauty box that ships the hottest and best-loved Korean cosmetics straight from Seoul! Click here to check out their website!
At first, I was a bit apprehensive and disappointed that there was no makeup inside. Skincare samples are quite tricky, since you never know if it’ll trigger a breakout. But here’s what’s surprising: After testing the products for a little bit, I was actually impressed by them!
Here’s a closer look at some of my immediate favorites from the box:
All in all, I was pretty impressed by the products in the Memebox. The price of the boxes that I saw on the website range from $15 to $69 (most boxes are in the $20 to $30 range) and standard shipping costs $6.99. Visit the site here—sometimes they offer free upgrades to express shipping depending on the box. My readers also get a special discount—just type in this promo code—SLL2OO—and you’ll get $5 off!**
Just so you don’t get confused when you go to their website, Memebox actually has different kinds of boxes that you can choose from. If you fall in love with the products and want to re-purchase, you can also do so on their website and have it shipped.
Here are the different kinds of boxes:
- The Memebox. This original box also comes with 4 to 8 full-sized products and deluxe samples. It’s themed, which means that they don’t mix and match the products you get. It’ll either contain all skincare, all hair and body products, or all makeup.
- Memebox Special. This is what I got. Specs are actually the same as the original Memebox, except that this box is designed to address specific beauty concerns, beauty trends, and seasonal needs.
- The Superbox. Another themed box, but here, they collaborate with brands or YouTube stars like CutiePieMarzia. She actually got to curate her own Memebox—hope I’ll get to do that someday! Heehee :p
- The Luckybox. This is the one to get if you want a mix of skincare and makeup products. They usually choose the most popular items from previously sold-out Memeboxes and pack ’em here.
Now for the big question…
When Memebox asked if I’d be willing to do a review of the box, I warned them that customs was a challenge in our country. I was worried that the box would arrive, but get a notice saying that I’d have to claim my package at the post office (y’all know the drill). Anyway, in this case, IT WAS SHIPPED STRAIGHT TO MY DOOR! So happy! The only extra fee I had to pay, which I mentioned in the last post, was P50 to the messenger. No receipt, no reason. Just P50 for him to release the package. If you’re going to order, I suggest you tell them beforehand also, so they can take the necessary precautions.
So what do you think of the Memebox? Will you order? I think it’s totally worth it! I’ll be on the look out for the next Memebox Special with a makeup theme or a Luckybox! ♥
