Memebox Mini #1 Review + Coupon Codes

My Memebox Mini #1 arrived today!  Memebox is a company that curates boxes full of Korean beauty products and sends them to your door.  It is not a subscription service so you must choose your boxes and then wait for them to arrive.

The Cost: $15/box.  Use MEMEBUNDLE3 to get $5 off 3 Memeboxes.  Use  FLQO5H to get $3 off one order.

What You Get: 5-6 deluxe size and foil samples, curated by Memebox to give you the best and widest array of quality Korean beauty and skincare products.
Each box comes with an information card.  This is really necessary because most of the products that you receive have only Korean written on them!  It's hard to know how to use something when you don't know what it is!  So the info cards tell you what you are receiving and how to use it.
This is the first Mini box that Memebox has ever put together so it's not only the first one I've received but the first one that anyone has!  It arrived with all the samples in a really cute and pretty heavy duty cloth bag.
When I first signed up for the Memebox Mini I was worried there would be too many foil packets in the box.  They did warn in the description that it was possible to receive them but the only foils in this box were extras and not included in the contents of the box!  Six deluxe size samples!
Botantical Hill Boh Moist Youth Ampoule Essence-4ml- A liquid essence that helps bright skin tone

Botanical Hill Boh Moist Youth Ampoule Essence-5ml- A gel essence to help nullify wrinkles and hydrate.

These both smell amazing in my opinion.  Which is good because its a pretty strong scent.  While the Moist Essence looks like it is a dropper, it is  not.  It has a pointy tip like a Neosporin tube.
 Holika Holika Skin & Good Cera Super Cream-  I have been wanting this!  It's packed with ceramides which is a skin identical ingredient.  This is SUPER hydrating and helps create a barrier to keep moisture from escaping for 72 hours!  This is a sneaky sample though because the bottom is hollow.  It's a super thick cream with a light scent that kind of reminds me of a gardeny lemon kind of smell.

Hanskin Bio Origin Royal Ampoule BB SPF 30 PA++-5ml-This has royal jelly extracts and will deliver rich nutrition and deep relief to your skin.  It has a light oil-based texture and glides onto your skin.  IT does have a light tint and will give you a bright, glowing complexion.  You only need a single drop, it says.  Not sure if 1 drop will give you must SPF though.
A True Black Tea All Day Long Sun Cream SPF 50- Protects, soothes and hydrates all day long.
Made from Ronde Du Soleil blending of black tea, orange zest and cinnamon black tea.  This smells like perfume and goes on white.  Really white.  Like the white sunscreen does.  Is that the zinc kind?  Now that I've sat here awhile with this on, I don't like it.  I put the tiniest drop on my arm and I need to open the windows to air the room out.  Powerful scent.

Witch's Pouch Real Skin Moisture Ampoule Base- Since this is an extra it has no information on the card.  Here is what it says on the pouch: Make-up base for who need fully moisture.  Immediately water supply by gold ingredient.  Make your skin glossy and shiny. Thats exact wording.  I used it.  It *does* have "gold ingredient" in it. It doesn't smell like anything.  It's a clear gel (besides the gold flakes).  Luckily it didn't actually make my face shiny but I did have to rub it in really well to get rid of the glitter flakes.  I'll have to check later and see if that really worked.

Verikos Ultra Matte Velvet Primer-3ml- The perfect primer for oily skin types.  This will soften and smooth out your uneven skin tone and texures, covering and filling pores adn wrinkles.  It also helps maintain a natural moisture/oil balance and is packed with Vitamin E and A.

VERDICT- There is a lot of fun stuff in this Mini!  I definitely don't care for the Black Tea Sun Cream but everything else is worth a try.  I'm very happy to get the Good & Cera cream and the Hanskin!  I'm super interested to try the Verikos and the Botanical Hill essences, as well.  This was totally worth the $15 and its even better because shipping was free!

If you think you might want to get a Memebox, check out Memebox.com!  The Mini's are currently sold out but I highly recommend getting their Memebox #11.  It's a great value and the best introduction you'll get.  Plus it ships immediately!
