MEMEBOX Global Edition #13 | Review

 *memebox discount codes down below*

In the last 4 hours, I managed to take photos and edit them for three upcoming blog posts, including this one for the MEMEBOX Global Edition #13 box. Job well done Sandy! ... Minus the fact that I have much more important things to do, like my homework and studies..

But that's okay! I wanted to share with you guys the latest MEMEBOX which was sent to me. And just this weekend I managed to order a SUPERBOX called Pinkaholic (superbox only includes full sized products). Their new Princess Snow White edition sold out when I went to order... and it's currently back in stock! The My Cute Wishlist #2 was sold out though I really wanted to try it.. so I decided to order something that could be just as cute. If you haven't seen the unboxing for My Cute Wishlist, you have to!

Anyways, without further ado, let's get started~

Previous reviews which include MEMEBOX introductions:

 1. 23 Years Old CX Detoxifying Air Therapy 
Full size product: 1 each ($50)

First impressions, wow this costs $50? For one syringe? Not unless it's a miracle treatment which allows me to become 23 years old or I can go back in time 23 years. (I'll be -5 at that time)

Made from carbonated water, this pack creates bubbles on your face. The bubles penetrate deep into the skin and cleanse away impurities. You aply the pack all over your face and then place the mask sheet on top. Rest for 20~30 minutes.

2. Donga Tempo Eco Natural Super (tampons) 3 EACH
Full size product: 16 each ($11)

I hope I won't find sanitary products in my box again.. It's a nice thought but I would have liked another beauty product instead.

3. CNP Cosmetics Derma-Scalp Shampoo 25g
Full size product: 250g ($27)

Helps cleanse your scalp, unclog pores, remove excess impurities and give your scalp a refreshing feeling with tea tree oil extracts. Suitable for sensitive, troubled scalps.

4. CNP Cosmetics Tone-Up Protection Sun 15ml
Full size product: 50ml ($34)

SPF42 PA+++ sunblock which dries to a matte powder finish to maintain silky soft skin. Has sea water extracts to prevent skin dehydration.

Have I mentioned how important sun block is for your skin? Make sure to always wear a SPF30+ sunscreen daily to prevent premature aging and discolouration spots. This is particularly important for people living in Australia (where skin cancer rates are high), keep applying guys! 

5. Yufit Eon Wheat-Germ Cream 75ml
Full size product: 75ml ($48)

Over 75% of the cream consists of organic wheat bud extracts which hydrate, firm, brighten and fight signs of aging. It's gentle texture does not irritate even the most sensitive and troubled skin to tighten pores for a younger complexion.

This product, along with the CC cream, is a favourite of mine in this box. I find that it is thick enough to be a winter moisturiser but melts into the skin well enough for use in autumn/spring. The ingredients have been checked by fanserviced-b and given the okay!

6. Soy Bio+ Plus Fermented Lumpoule 5ml x 2EACH
Full size product: $174

"Lumpoule" is a combination of 'lump' and 'ampoule', and this is made from real Korean fermented soy bean lump. It helps prevent formation of fine lines and wrinkles to brighten complexion.

Have yet to use this but will bring it over to Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan when I go in a couple of months.

7. Nuganic Customised Pure Snail Color Control Cream 40ml
Full size product: ($54)

This was randomly selected from the Sun Base CC cream or the Pure Snail, so I'm glad I got the snail extract infused version. Getting two different sun blocks in one box wouldn't be ideal, I have received many I have yet to use from MEMEBOX. 

CC cream is basically a more skincare type makeup compared to the BB cream which contains more pigments to allow higher coverage. It has a silky smooth finish, applies white and blends into skin colour.

Applied on the right


General comments:
I still believe out of the many boxes I have unboxed, the global editions still win my heart. Maybe because it's the first box I have ever received (3rd global edition) but I like that most of the products are solid. Memebox is always quick to respond to my emails, and express shipping allows you to receive your products in 2 business days!

For $23 + 6.99 shipping, you can get more than $120 worth of Korean branded products to try. Cannot wait to receive my Pink-Aholic box! Please let there be Etude House and Banila Co (crosses fingers)

If you guys are interested, MEMEBOX unveiled new Princess editions for Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping beauty. Get all three boxes for $87 here with free upgrade to express shipping

FAQS with Memebox:

1. First things first – How do I pronounce “Memebox”?
It’s pronounced as “Mi-mi-box”, not “meme-box”.

The name “Memebox” originated from “Mi Mi”, the name of a Korean doll that is the beauty idol of many little girls in Korea. We spelt it as “Me-me” because we wanted to emphasize that beauty is about oneself, and hence “me”.

2. So, what is Memebox?
Memebox 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 (we will explain these in detail in the next section.) In addition to the box series, we also carry full-size, Korean beauty products in our Memeshop.

3. Tell me more about these boxes!

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.

Memebox Special Edition:
Memebox special edition comes packaged with 4-8 full-size products and delux samples under its own theme. Memebox special edition is designed to meet the various concerns, beauty trends, and also seasonal needs.

Superbox was inspired by our Memebox lovers, looking for full-sized products catered to specific needs. Each Superbox series comes with its own theme, designed to target particular concerns, or collaboration with our favorite brands!

We created Luckybox to give everyone a different and unique box full of our favorite products for you to feel like the luckiest person in the world! Every Luckybox is unique and is filled with 4 - 8 full sized products and deluxe samples carefully curated from Korea to give you the best experience and widest exposure to a range of products!

First and Second generation of Luckybox:
We only have a limited supply of each Memebox series, and Luckybox #1 &#2 was created to bring back our most popular items selected from previously sold-out Memeboxes, all combined in one wonderful collection.

4. Is Memebox shipped directly from Korea?
All products are sourced, packaged, and shipped, directly from Korea straight to your doorstep.

There are couple of reasons behind this: firstly, we want to make sure that you get the widest choice of products, and that means not limiting ourselves to a small warehouse outside of Korea. Secondly, beauty trends evolve incredibly rapidly, and shipping directly from Korea allows us to stay on top of that. As a result, regular shipping does take between 15 - 25 business days.

Express shipping options are available as well, and take 3 - 7 business days. At Memebox, we’re committed to bringing you only the best - we’ll make sure it’s worth the wait.

5. Do they ship internationally?
Currently they ship to 45 countries: Austria, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA.

6. Is Memebox a continuous subscription or do you have to purchase each box separately?
Currently, Memebox does not offer monthly subscription plans, so each box will have to be purchased upon release.
Register your email at, and they will send you an email notifying you when a new box is released!

Until next time, annyeong~ If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
