Memebox Oriental Medicine Review

Memebox Oriental Medicine Review
Its my Memebox Oriental Medicine!!  My mailman plopped it on my doorstep this morning and I ran out so fast when I saw that pink shiny covering on my porch!

The contents of this box are touted to improve the skins regeneration functions, provide needed anti-oxidants, and moisturize while providing anti-inflammatory benefits!  Thats a lot of goodness for one box!  Of course I bought it!

The Cost: $23 plus shipping

What You Get: 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.
 Each Memebox comes with an information card that is an absolute necessity.  Since most of these products only have Korean on them, there's no way to know how to use each item without reading the card.  They are pretty fun to read, too, because the descriptions can be quite hilarious.
Shib Jang Ceng Chun Ji Heang Hand Cream-80ml- Made from 110 years old wild ginseng extracts, shea butter, and olive oil, this hand cream is extremely rich in nutrients and delivers deep revitalization to your dry, rough hands.  This highly moisturizing formula allows for a fast absorbance and a long-lasting finish.
This is a wonderful hand cream!  It smells soooo good!  I love it.

Hanhui Precious CC Cream SPF 50+-50ml- This CC cream is infused with red ginseng extracts, cactus extracts and galactomyces ferment extracts to make your silky smooth.  A CC cream works to even out skin tone and cover up pores and fine lines.
A little goes a LONG way with this.  I can't tell if it's separated or if I didn't shake it enough or if it's just supposed to be that way but it comes out white with pink specks.  Then when you massage it around it turns pink.  It does meld nicely into my skin, though.  Hopefully this sunscreen wont make me break out.  I'd be so happy!  We'll see.
D'RAN Wonder Serum-30ml- Made from 20 different Korean medicinal herbs like ginseng, black hoof mushrooms, licorice, portulaca, and ganoderma.  The Wonder serum delivers abundant nutrients and moisture deep into your skin for a revitalized complexion.
This is an opaque, viscous liquid that you pat into your skin.  I don't like the way it smells at all.  It smells like soap.

Donginbidam Red Ginseng Aqua Oil and Red Ginseng Aqua Pack Essence-  According to Memebox this is a high end department store brand and is very high quality.  Red Ginseng will soothe your skin and lock in moisture, making your skin smooth and silky.
The Aqua Oil is clear like water and has a very light scent.  I patted this on my skin first then used the essence.  The essence is a milky ivory color and less runny than the Aqua Oil but not as thick as a cream.  I patted that in as well.  My skin feels amazing!
PureDerm Korean Herb Masks x2-  I received the Hydrating Mask and the Moisturizing Mask (which seem like the same thing to me :P).  Anyway these have high concentrations of Vitamin E and collagen.  The herbal extracts in each are different, though.  The Moisturizing mask has Portulaca Oleracea (purslane), Angelica Acutiloba root (parsley), paenonia albiflora root (no idea, possibly a spelling error and it actually means paeonia albiflora root which is peony root), cornus officinalis Fruit (dogwood) and Polygonum Multiflorum Root (tree of light) Extracts in it.  Interesting.  I'm not sure of any skin benefits that those actually provide.

The Hydrating Mask is basically on the same lines but with different plant extracts.

VERDICT:  I'm really excited to continue use of the hand cream and the sunscreen.  I really like the scent, texture and ingredients of the Red Ginseng Oil and Essence.  I'm disappointed that I can't stand the scent of the Wonder Serum and I'll definitely use the masks.  While I wish this had had more contents, it did have four full size products.  I love the hand cream SO much!

    1. I didn't get the Herbal Box because it said it featured lavender which I am allergic to. However, I saw a spoiler and wished I had gotten the box anyway :P

  2. Ohhhh, look at all the awesome skin care! I kind of love that ginseng is featured, but I'd be afraid of the scents of the products in this box. XD

    1. I don't know why they would scent face creams but everyone does it. Only the Wonder Serum is strong enough to smell after it's been applied. I have a particular dislike for soapy smells (even in soap :P) so I did not like it at all.

  3. I received this box, too and I really like the products...I was wondering about the difference between the hydrating and the moisturizing mask, too XD

  4. I did got this a box too and about the CC cream it supposed to be that white (that's the offical formula of CC creams) Also with CC creams you need to tap it into your skin to get a beautiful finish :) I also really love the hand creams and all the writing on the tubes etc
    I can't remember the serum scent at the moment;)

  5. Did you use the CC cream yet? It does come out white but I smeared it in my palm and it turned skin color. So you are supposed to pat it in and not rub it onto your face? I will have to look into this. I do not like to look shiny and the last CC cream I tried (AmorePacific) made me look like I'd dipped my face in oil. Ew.

    1. Yes all CC creams and BB creams need to be pat into skin (you can use special cushions of that, its easier and they don't absorb so much) Yes that the cc cream turn into more color is the formula. why I don't know but my rubbing or pattig these balls breaks and poof magic and your beautiful :) I've tried tried this on my hand and I looks wonderful I'm big fan of CC creams and use it a lot :)
