A few months ago I won a giveaway over at KalynLord.com for $30 worth of Meme points, which it turns out was just enough for one box. (Depending on the box, that is.) I have a serious love affair with masks so it was only natural that I pick this one, though there were definitely several contenders!
Meme Box is housed in a bright Barbie-pink box that is quite sturdy and I look forward to reusing once I empty it’s contents. It comes with the standard card that explains all you need to know about the products within which is particularly helpful with this box considering it’s all Korean beauty, which I admit I know next to nothing about.
The first mask in the box is the Shara Shara Real Sauce Mung Beans Mask ($2 each). There were two of these single-use sheet masks in this Meme Box which I am really excited to try out!
Product Description: (from the included card) Mung beans have long been utilized as skin detoxifying and clarifying ingredients. They’re highly rich in proteins, vitamins, and dietary fibers, effectively nourishing and brightening up visibly dull, dehydrated skin.
It sounds like this is a bit like magic in mask form to me. I’ve also never used a sheet mask before so I’m intrigued to see if it works for me or not.
Onto product number two: Purederm Yogurt Wash-off Pack ($7). Each box gets a randomly selected scent (flavour? Featured ingredient?) from kiwi or strawberry and I got the kiwi version. I’m secretly hoping it smells like kiwi’s because I am missing summer a bunch right now.
Product Description: A wash-off type pack made from yogurt extracts, collagen, Vitamin E and various fruit extracts. The kiwi pack helps control excess level of dead skin cells, while the strawberry pack helps balance out excess sebum and oil, both effective at maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion.
Oooooh from that description I am even more excited to try it out!
Who doesn’t love a good clay mask? It’s honestly one of my favourite masks and I am really looking forward to putting this one to the test. I love the packaging – the sturdy cardboard box that has a slight grip to it. Very strange, but very cool. The design itself makes me swoon: the colors, the classic shapes and style… not to mention that the pun of Claypatra (full size $17) is just delightful. The mask itself is housed in a plastic pot that is pretty standard to deluxe beauty samples.
Product Description: Banilla Co. Claypatra Mineral Salt Clay Pack is made of 100% pure mud extracted straight from the Dead Sea (consists of 32% of salt and minerals) effectively removes any excess sebum, oil, dead skin cells and external pollutants clogged up in the pores. The mineral-rich formula also delivers deep hydration and nourishment to dry, dull skin.
The Inoface Modeling Cup Pack (Chlorella) ($4) is a strange one. It’s a powder that you mix with water to create a mud for the mask – hence the spatula. It’s very messy as it is so I definitely look forward to getting rid of the powdery part of the mask.
Product Description: Experience home aesthetics with Inoface Modeling Cup Pack series which comes in 6 different types each catered to target different skin problems and conditions. Chlorella is effective in soothing and strengthening skin’s natural balance.
Product Description: A luxurious, one-step facial to rejuvenate, brighten and balance out uneven skin tone and texture for velvety smooth complexion, Real Aqua Velvet Sleeping Pack ($30) is lightweight and non-sticky in formula, quickly absorbing into dry, exhausted skin to form a protective moisture barrier that locks in the moisture within skin overnight. It contains niacinamide, adenosine, ice plant extracts, snail secretion and birch tree sap.
Snail secretion huh? That’s…strange. I mean, I’ve heard of it being used in skin products before but I guess I never really considered it before.
Product Description: Enriched with organic black rice extracts, organic rice bran, carrageenan, gold extracts, adenosine, collagen, glucose, rosewood oil and more, this Black Rice Hydrogel Eye Patch ($9) is all-natural and gentle to dry, sensitive skin. The hydrogel patches visibly diminish in its thickness as the nutrients packed inside absorb into the skin, firming and lifting up sagging under-eyes. Free of parabens, artificial fragrance and artificial colouring.
I haven’t had much luck with eye masks before but I am always interested in trying out new ones. Meme Box included 5 of these in my box so I look forward to being able to give this a good trial.
Value of Box: ~$56.00
Alright! This is a great value for this box, even though it may look like it’s a bit lacking upon first glance at the prices – especially considering I won the points in the first place. I am definitely satisfied.
Have you tried any K-beauty products before? I feel like this may have opened a new door for me and I’d love recommendations!
