I am so fortunate to have been sent the Memebox Special #16 OMG Box! Memebox is the #1 beauty box subscription service in Korea. It is also currently available in the US and in other countries as well. Memebox features Korean cosmetics and in case you haven’t tried Korean cosmetics, these cosmetics are legit (in the words of Judy of It’s Judy Time)! This subscription service has 4 kinds of boxes: Memebox, Memebox Special Editions, Superbox and Luckybox. Memebox doesn’t currently offer monthly subscriptions and boxes may be purchased upon release. The price of the box depends on the kind of box that you want to purchase. But I think that paying for the price of the box plus shipping would be worth it because the value of the products that you’ll receive will definitely surpass it!
There is quite an abundance of Korean beauty stores in the Philippines. I’ve always found Korean beauty products to be amazing, beautifully packaged and quite affordable. Through Memebox, you will get to discover that there are more Korean brands out there waiting to be tried by beauty addicts like me and you!
The OMG Box is filled with products that will make you go “Hmmm…Cool!” because the box is filled with “weirdly awesome, yet effective beauty treasures that will work miracles for your hair, skin and body”!
The box that I received was filled with full size products! That’s 6 full size products to be exact! I love the quality of their box as well because it is sturdier than most of our local beauty subscription boxes!
I also love the card that came with the box! The card outlines each and every product in the box and gives quite a detailed description of each product! Because the product labels are in Korean, the card also indicates how each product must be used!
Now, let’s look into each of the products in this box!
Hope Girl Night Diva Gloss (6g/$22)
This lip gloss has two different shades which gives that nice gradient effect on the tube. I’ve never tried or seen a lip gloss with two shades in it in my life! I don’t know what these gradient shades hope to achieve but I’m gonna see how this gloss applies and looks on my lips. Oh and this lip gloss also comes with a tiny mirror on the side and the wand can actually light up!
Skinaz Premium Vitablet (39g/$46)
This product is a tablet type of cleanser that is rich in Vitamin C and aroma oil! This is used by dropping 1 tablet into a bowl of water and using that water to cleanse your face. It can also be used as a facial mist, in the bath or for the hair! I was actually really excited when I was reading the description of this product. I’ve never encountered a product like this before and this was definitely an OMG product for me!
Skinaz The Kissable 24H Lip Tattoo (13g/$18)
Let me just get it out of the way and say that this product is really weird! This product is like a lip stain and claims to stay on the lips for 24 hours. Sounds good, right? But what makes this product so weird in my opinion is that once the product is applied on the lips, you have to wait for 10-15 minutes for it to completely dry and then you’ll have to peel it off your lips where it leaves a nice tint!!! Weird, don’t you think?
Pure Smile 3 Step Bust Pack (1 set/$6)
This bust pack aka the product which made me really go OMG while simultaneously scratching my head is a 3 step process of taking care of your bust! When I first opened the box and saw this product, I really thought that it’s a product that will make your breasts bigger! On the contrary, this product is meant to be used to moisturize the skin on your bust! The product description card says that it is recommended to be used before wearing a bikini. This is definitely a bizarre but cool kind of product!
Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask (100g/$46)
This product wasn’t an OMG product for me but it is the product that I’m most excited to try out of the bunch! I love face masks and a bubble clay face mask is something that I haven’t tried before! This face mask is packed with green tea extracts, pomegranate extracts and charcoal extracts and claims to deeply penetrate into the pores to remove out all the dirt!
Ladykin Aqua Exfoliator For Body (150ml/$14)
This body exfoliator is enriched with cellulose components from papaya and pineapple extracts and is said to remove dead skin cells and unnecessary impurities without having to scrub down hard enough.
The Memebox OMG Box is definitely a one of a kind box! Although I admit that not all of the products in this box made me go OMG or gasp with excitement, I’m actually pretty excited to try these products out! I also love the mix of makeup and skincare products in this box! I am especially excited to try out the bubble clay mask, body exfoliator and vitablet!
This box costs $29 but the value of the products in this box totaled to more than $150! That’s a great value for your money if you ask me! Check out the Memebox website to know more about their boxes! There are a few interesting boxes coming out in the future months that I really want to purchase! Yikes! Haha!
