Let me firstly say, I know people have been reviewing these a lot lately, however I purchased this Memebox myself…and have another making its way from Korea as I type. All opinions are completely my own and I just wanted to share this with you.
Ok, now that’s out the way…. welcome to our August edition of What We’re Loving! This month I (Rhoda) am absolutely loving Memebox! Memebox is a Korean beauty box service. It’s not a subscription service as such, they release new boxes frequently and you pop over to their website to order whatever you like the look of.
I was first introduced to Memebox a wee while ago by Coffee Break With Dani (over on YouTube) who does Memebox unboxings. From the first time I saw her unboxing I wanted to get my hands on one of these boxes, but I wasn’t sure how it would work being shipped over here. I really didn’t want to be slapped with a big customs charge when it arrived. So I patiently held off until I found some other UK bloggers who had ordered Memeboxes with no problems and so I plunged in with my first order.
Having seen various reviews online I decided to opt for the Hair & Body 2 box. The box itself cost $23 (£13.88) and standard shipping is $6.99 (£4.22) although this box had free upgrade to express delivery, and wow was it quick!!!
I used a combination of Meme Points & a coupon code to bring the total price in at $14.99 (£9.04). A MASSIVE bargain! In fact it’s a massive bargain at the standard price, but it’s worth a wee look about for any coupon codes prior to ordering.
I also nabbed one of their secret deals so I was sent a free 45ml DrG Brighening Balm in Super Light which actually retails on the site for $25! Seriously, I cannot believe how much stuff I got for £9!
Ok, I’ll stop rambling. Here’s what came in the box….
…jam packed full of goodies!! You also get a wee card that tells you what everything is, how to use it and how much it retails for. Don’t lose the card as in some cases it’s the only English instructions.
Kocostar Foot Therapy 40ml ($9) Ok I confess it was this item that really made me choose this box. These are basically a wee pair of socks you put on for about 1.5hours. They have gel inside & feel really tingly on the feet. Rinse off the gel and about 4 days later you’ll notice the skin coming off, yeup coming off, your feet! It should be disgusting, but it’s pretty awesome. My feet are unbelievably soft now and I seriously love this foot wrap! I’d just advise you not to do it if you’re going to be sandals in about 4 days time, not a good look!
Evas Cosmetics Body Net 7Days Project 200ml ($6) Sticking with the body, I’ve been using this shower gel for a while. There were 7 different scents available and I got the Deep Sea Water. It’s nice.
Label Young Shocking Holjjuki 100ml ($21) This stuff scares me. It’s a one-step body slimming cream. You apply it where you want a slimming effect and it, well, slims it. It heats up though so you need to be careful not to use too much. Honestly, I’ve used this once and I was too scared to put much on, so I can’t give you an opinion on this. I need to be brave and give it another go.
Vidanail Lvida Lavender Oil 10ml ($10) I really like this lavender oil. It helps the nails, is easy to apply and looks so cute. Look at the bits of lavender in it!!! >>
Hello Everybody Spa Vita Berry Shampoo & Treatment 30ml (Full sized product: 220ml ($38)) I LOVE the smell of these! I was going to save them for trips away but the smell was too good, I had to try them. I’ve been using these once a week/10 days to help give my hair a vitamin boost. I don’t think my hair could handle more than that so these should last a wee while.
Boutique Bebe Hair Salon Argan Oil Essence 60ml ($31) Apart from the bizarrely brilliant foot wraps this is my favourite item in the box. I just apply a little with my fingers and it gives my hair a nice, natural looking shine. It was great on the ends of my hair just before I got it cut, really helped my hair look and feel more presentable!
So that’s the contents of my Hair & Body 2 Box, worth $77, or $81 factoring in the sample sized hair goodies!
I mentioned that I bagged one of their secret deals. This meant I was sent this DrG BB cream for free..
So all-in-all by applying my memepoints and a discount code, I received $106 (£63.93) worth of products for just $14.99 (£9.04)!!
I’m delighted with this box. I didn’t incur any customs charges which was great. I believe that’s because it cost less than £15? Anyway, I love this box so much that I’ve already ordered my next one. I’m even more excited about it as it’s the Collab With Coffee Break With Dani box!
One final tip… if you see a box you fancy and it’s in stock GO FOR IT! They sell out really, really quickly.
