Memebox Global Box #14 Review

*This review was sponsored by Memebox. All thoughts and opinions expressed are mine and 100% honest.

Hello everyone!

Remember that post I made 2 months ago about me being back for good? Well that kind of wasn't true... OTL I started high school a month ago (for those who are wondering, where I live, high school is 10th-12th grade), and it's a lot busier than I thought it would be. A lot. But I'm starting to get used to the workload now, so let's hope that I'll be able to start blogging once every one or two weeks again. 

Anyways~ I'm sure most of you have heard about Memebox right? If not, allow me to enlighten you:  Memebox, pronounced "Mi-mi-box", is a Korean beauty box and e-commerce retailer that is based in Korea. Currently the #1 beauty box provider in Korea, they started shipping to the US and other countries (see the list here to see which countries they ship to) back in November 2013. They do not offer monthly subscription plans, but they're constantly releasing new boxes every month. At the moment they carry four different types of beauty boxes: 

  • Memebox Global Box: The original Memebox ($23 + shipping) that comes with 4-8 full-sized products and deluxe samples.
  • Memebox Special Edition: Designed to meet various concerns, beauty trends, and seasonal needs, this box also comes with 4-8 full-sized products and deluxe samples. The prices range from $23-$32 + shipping. 
  • Superbox: Made up of full-sized products only, each Superbox comes with its own theme, designed to target specific concerns or collaborations with a brand. Prices start at $19 + shipping. 
  • Luckybox: Products in this box are based on selections from past Memeboxes. Luckyboxes aren't released as frequently as the other boxes, and are priced at $23 + shipping with 4-8 full-sized products and deluxe samples.
As you can see from the title, today I bring to you a review of the Memebox Global Box #14!

 Here's an interesting story: When Memebox emailed me out of nowhere asking if I'd be interested to collaborate with them, I almost deleted the email since I thought it was another one of their emails telling me about their newest boxes/sales (which I've been avoiding since I went on a shopping ban). Then I checked to see if they sent it to the wrong person. OTL 

The info card sent with descriptions of each product in the box:

1. Shower Mate Perfume de Whip Body Wash
Size: 50ml x 2 (full size)
Value: $8 (actual value: 3,000원)

Check out the packaging, eh? Looks like Marilyn Monroe and her white dress are still iconic even though a few decades have passed. The two scents I received are 02 Pure White Blossom and 03 Marilyn Red Fantasy. The scent of Pure White Blossom reminds me of the typical Laneige cleansing foam scent, which I somewhat like, and Marilyn Red Fantasy just smells like normal bar soap, which I don't like as much. Even though Red Fantasy is supposed to smell like jasmine and roses, I don't really smell it. The other scent you could've possibly received is 01 Romantic Pink Garden

2. Sally's box 4SET (Love Recipe Apple Mask + Delight Hydrogel Mask in Ceramide, Collagen, and Panthenol) 
Size: 20ml + 25g x3 (all full-sized)
Value: $14 (actual value: 11,500원)
The Love Recipe Apple Mask is for smoothing and balancing out rough skin texture, while the Delight Hydrogel masks contain 10+ herbal ingredients that deeply hydrate, firm up, and relieve coarse, thirsty skin. I'm a fan of gel masks so I definitely can't wait to try these masks out~ 

3. Beauty People Miss 100 Super Waterproof Gel Liner Auto Pencil 
Size: 0.5g (full-sized)
Value: $38 (actual value: 32,000원) 

My first thought when I saw this was somewhat along the lines of "This is worth over $30?!". I've seen the packaging before (well hello there grumpy Snow White) but I never realized how expensive this is. Out of the three possible color choices, the one I received was in Glimmer Bronze. I gave it a try, and I have to say that it glides on so smoothly, and it's definitely smudge- and waterproof. 

4. VOV Good-bye Black Smudge Waterproof Mascara 
Size: 9g (full-sized)
Value: $19 (actual value: 16,00원)

 Excuse the lighting in some of the photos please, it was really cloudy today OTL

When I first saw that I received the mascara instead of the possible eyeliner, I was pretty disappointed, because I haven't had a single experience with any mascara (high-end or drugstore) that didn't smudge and give me panda eyes. =__= So I assumed that this one, 02 Volume Proof Mascara, would do the exact same thing, but boy was I wrong. I've only tried it twice so far, but I haven't had any problems with it yet, so now I'm quite happy to have received this. ^^ 

5. Kocostar 4 Package Set (Ggonji Hair Pack + Face Spot Mirror Patch + 5 Finger Nail Pack + Foot Peeling Pack)
Size: 8ml + 36 patches + 1 set + 1 set (all full-sized)
Value: $20 (actual value: 18,800원)

Hooray for Memebox! I was JUST thinking about purchasing a foot peeling pack and look what arrived. I'd hate to admit this but... this is the product I was most excited about in this whole box (what is wrong with me lol). The hair pack looks interesting, I've never heard about placing a hair pack around a ponytail. I don't have damaged nails however I have been interested in nail packs, so why not? I'm not really a fan of spot patches for acne, but I'll give this one a try. 

6. Sua Young Mineral Essence in Liquid Foundation SPF33 PA+++
Size: 5g (deluxe sample)
Value: ~$5.67 (actual value: 5,000원)

Apparently this is a liquid foundation containing only organic ingredients. It looks a little dark in the photo above, but it's actually a bit lighter. This seems like a nice foundation, and I'm always willing to try new face makeup. 

7. Recipe By Nature Golden Time Vita Capsule Essence 
Size: 40ml (full-sized)
Value: $42 (actual value: 35,00원)

Let's just take a moment to admire the packaging. Doesn't it remind you of a perfume bottle with the bow and all? This essence is supposed to brighten your skin tone, balance oil/moisture levels, nourish your skin, and even out rough skin. Sounds like a good product, and it contains many vitamins! Plus the packaging and essence itself is beautiful. 

8. a;t fox Fantasy Holic Lip & Cheek Designer Pencil
Size: unknown (full-sized)
Value: $7 (actual value: 6,000원)

I actually received this product before in 02 Lovely Coral from Memebox Global Box #7, but I didn't like the color and gave it to a friend. This time, I received this in 01 Sweet Orange. In my opinion, this is more of a coral color than orange, which is fine by me since I love coral lip colors. The size of the pencil is small, which makes it perfect to carry along with you anywhere. 

Total value: $150.67 (actual value: 127,300원)

My thoughts: 

Overall I'd say that this is a great box, since it contains products that you can use from head to toe. I'm impressed by the amount of products in this box, even my friend who was with me at that time when I received it said that it's amazing how many products were included. Most of the products are ones that customers would use (although the scent of the body washes might be a miss for some).

What do you think of this Memebox? Which item(s) would you be interested in the most? 


  1. I'm a bit surprised by the retail price of the Beauty People liners too ... they are pretty nice though. This is an awesome box overall! I like it when the boxes have a lot of little things in them - feels like there's a higher possibility of success that way?

  2. I agree, this would definitely be a nice starting box for new customers ^^ If you ever get the chance to get the eyeliner, get it! It's really nice, although I can't exactly say the same for its price... I haven't tried the masks yet but it's always nice to have a stash ready-to-use anytime lol
    Thanks for reading Nyxie! :)

  3. The quality is pretty nice, but the price... not so much. I know what you mean, it does feel like there's a higher chance of success when boxes have a greater quantity of little things. Thanks for reading Rebecca! ^^

  4. Oooo looks like a lovely box of sweet goodies ^^

    恵美より ♥

  5. It really is a pretty great box! ^^ Thanks for reading Emi~

  6. You're welcome, looking forward to new posts ^^/

  7. This is the box which attracts my attention the most! That Recipe By Nature Golden Time Vita Capsule Essence seems really interesting! Your pictures just make the overall products seem more interesting! lol

  8. This box really is the best so far! I've been using the essence and it's okay, I'm not sure if it's done anything effective yet though. And oh stop it Zyro, your pictures are better than mine! Thank you for reading~ ^^

  9. I think this Memebox would be a nice one to start out with (as in your very first Memebox) and truthfully I've been dying to get my hands on the eyeliner! Those masks look like they would be an awesome addition to my diminishing stash haha.
