Memebox #10 Review and Coupon Code!

Memebox #10 arrived safely to my doorstep and I am SO excited about the things I received.  Yes, I knew from spoilers but nothing is quite like having everything in your hands to test!

Memeboxes are a fantastic way to dip your toe in the waters of Korean beauty and skincare products or just spruce up your already large stash!  These are not subscription boxes so you just buy the ones you want without any commitment or need to cancel.

The Cost: $23 plus shipping.  Use coupon code FLQO5H to get $3 off your first order! This is good til the end of June but can only be used once.

What You Get: The original Memebox comes packed 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.
I have been super impressed with the curation and contents of the global Memeboxes.  This box is no exception.  There's a little bit of everything and who doesn't love getting full size products in a sample box!?

FIVE of these products are full size.  The only sample size is the Hanskin.  All of this for $23 plus shipping!
Drww Multi-Action Smart Cream Gel-70ml- This is a mineral-rich cream designed with green tea extracts to deeply soothe and nourish tired, damaged skin.  This can be used at the end of your normal morning skin care routine or at night as a sleeping pack.  I'm a big fan of sleeping packs based on my experience with Lioele's Waterdrop Sleeping Pack.  That stuff is magic!

This is scented and it seemed strong when I squeezed it out but once it was on my skin it wasn't too noticeable.  It soaks in perfectly and leaves my skin very soft.  It's completely clear and it is a gel (not a cream).  I like it a lot.

Mise en scene Curling Essence 2x-150ml- Enriched with argan oil and cedar wood oil, this hair essence provides deep nutrition and helps define your curls.  It will make your curls bounce with luster and elasticity.
This goes on to damp hair and you use it to style your curls with your hand.  I have no curls but I'd like my hair to bounce!  I may have to try this soon, just to see what happens.
Atopalm Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum-15ml- This is a gentle, paraben-free eye serum designed to fight visible signs of aging around your eyes.  Formulated with patented MLE technology, this special serum is able to mimic the skin's natural lipids, bringing optimal hydration to your skin without any risk of dryness.  With consistent use, this eye serum will moisturize and protect the skin and create a brighter and more youthful complexion.
This has some VERY good ingredients in it.  Niacinamide for getting rid of dark circles, vitamin E, sodium hyaluronate (the deepest penetrating form of Hyaluronic Acid), theres some green tea extract to reduce puffiness and some peptides thrown in as well.  This 15ml pump is $35!

Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Amoule BB SPF30 PA++-  This also is an excellent product.  It's a tinted sunscreen and is full of antioxidants, peptides and moisturizing ingredients.  It has royal jelly, honey and hyaluronic acid to keep you moisturized and acne free!  It blends really nicely into my pale skin and I feel like it fills in my fine lines so I don't look as old as I am. :D Haha!
This was the only sample sized item in this box and I was sad because it really is a highly rated, good quality product.  Luckily, I'm getting more in my Mini #1 so I'm okay!
Dewytree Ginseng Nutritious Black Sheet Mask- Before I started getting subscription boxes, I didn't know that I loved masks.  Especially sheet masks.  I *love* it when Memebox includes a mask!  I'm using this tonight!  The fifth ingredient in this mask is Sodium Hyaluronate and the seventh is hydrolyzed collagen.  Now I dont know if collagen can be absorbed by the skin (time for some research) but if you ever read any of my posts, you know I'm hooked on hyaluronic acid.  This mask is a definite win for me!  If you have sensitive skin, however, you might want to hold off because the sixth ingredient is grapefruit extract and citrus extracts can cause irritation to sensitive skin.

Caolion Mool Pool Deep Cleansing Cleanser-75ml- This is an oil-free, gentle cleanser that's strong enough to get off waterproof make up.  The instructions are interesting: Spread it on a dry face with dry hands. Massage the cleanser by rolling it with your hands until its too stiff to roll anymore. Then wash off.  I don't get it.  I think maybe its a translation issue.  I suppose they want you to massage it into dry skin until its all soaked in and then wash your face.  I think?

VERDICT: I love this box.  I'll use everything except possibly the curl essence.  The value is so far beyond what I paid for it that it's kind of ridiculous.  I'm really happy with what I received.
Memebox does a great job on their global boxes and I highly suggest snatching up Memebox #14 if you want a chance to get one of these.  Don't forget to use coupon code FLQO5H to get $3 off your order!

  1. Did you get your own code? :) I had no time to try it out yet but that ampoule bb cream looks super funny! I think I'm gonna love everything :D

    1. I know! It's weird that it comes with a dropper. I wonder if the full size comes like that, too. Yes, they finally got back to me today! It's good till the end of June but can only be used one time and it's considered the same as all the other $3 blog codes out there. Use one code and you've used them all basically. But there's a new one every month!

  2. The value is definitely there in this box! I'm especially excited to use that cleanser since I came across the product's information on wishtrend, they have a really good description about the product and how to use it. Hopefully its good since I might be getting another one with the minibox #2. :)

    1. I haven't tried it on anything waterproof yet but it's a nice cleanser. I also am getting the Mini #2 and I'm hoping for the CND cleansing water variation!
