Memebox USA Shop "Haul of Fame" and Giveaway!

Memebox Haul of Fame Sale
When Memebox asked me if I would like to have a sale of my own, I jumped at the chance!  A "Haul of Fame" with some products I love and some I would like to try?! Yes, please!

And you get to be a part of it!  Isn't it exciting?!  I'm going to show you what I chose, why I chose it and then Memebox and I are giving you the opportunity to win the full Haul!

Memebox specializes in sending boxes of authentic Korean beauty products right to your door. It's not a subscription, you get to choose which boxes you would like from their list and pick as many as you want!  Boxes range from about $23-$35 each.

Now, though, Memebox has opened a shop dedicated to USA shoppers!  This is a way to avoid the high shipping costs and long delivery times associated with the usual overseas purchase.

Today I'm happy to showcase a few of the items you can find in the USA Memeshop.

If you follow me at all, you'll know I'm obsessed with Korean skincare.  I love the fact that you get quality ingredients and high concentrations of components that are proven to work! I think in the US, it's harder to find good ingredients at a reasonable prices.  One more reason to go Kbeauty!
Missha Pomegranate Fermented Foaming Cleanser-  This is an exceptionally creamy foaming cleanser.  It lathers so beautifully and is very gentle.  The fermented pomegranate extract is one of the best antioxidants you will find.  It's one reason I love pomegranate cosmetics so much.
Pomegranate has so many benefits, not just for your skin but also for your body in general. If you have dry skin, pomegranate contains an omega 5 fatty acid that prevents moisture loss which enhances hydration!
This cleanser will wash off your make up, daily grime and dead skin cells for a smoother, brighter complexion.  I use this in the shower and don't restrict it to just my face.
Value: $5.00
On Sale in the USA Memeshop: $4.00 

It's Skin Todak Todak Pack in Pomegranate and Shea Butter- More pomegranate! This is a wash off gel face mask.  Slather on your face and leave it for ten minutes then wash it off for moisturized, regenerized skin!
Pomegranate extract helps to prevent hyper-pigmentation, age spots and reducing the signs of skin aging by sun damage and exposure.  It also can penetrate the layers of our skin to help with cell regeneration! All of this means a brighter, healthier complexion! I used this on one side of my face and put another wash off mask on the other (an expensive, non-Korean one).

After 10 minutes I washed them both off. The side I had used the It's Skin Todak Todak Pack on was noticeably softer and smoother than the other side. That definitely sold me!

I always love it when a reasonably priced product beats a more expensive one.  Price does not always mean something is better or more effective.
Value: $14.00
On Sale in the USA Memeshop: $7.28

Power10 VE Formula- I love serums! All serums, any kind of serum but most especially antioxidant serums.  Since I turned 35, I've been a little obsessed with keeping as much moisture and elasticity in my skin as I can.  That means antioxidants and sunscreens are a MUST!  Along with other things, of course, but never neglect to have an antioxidant in your regimen.

This Power10 VE Formula has naturally derived vitamin E in it.  You can see it floating in the bottle! Also known as tocopherol, vitamin E is also a power antioxidant like pomegranate extract. Vitamin E has some added benefits in that it helps maintain your natural oil/moisture balance and strengthens the skins barrier against moisture loss and UV rays.  If you use a sunscreen with vitamin E in it, it will also increase the effectiveness of your SPF. So you can see why I like it!

This serum sinks easily into my skin and leaves not even a hint of stickiness.  Smooth it on after cleansing and continue with your normal routine.  There are several Power10 serums on sale.  I have only tried the Vitamin E but I would imagine the others would perform the same.  I'm super interested in the SYN-AKE version which has peptides similar to those found in snake venom! :D
Value: $18.00
On Sale in the USA Memeshop: $11.70

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream-  You may or may not know that Missha was one of the first beauty houses to create a BB cream!  Before anything close was popular in the USA, Korean women were wearing BB creams to moisturize, cover blemishes and even out their skin tones.

The Missha Perfect Cover BB cream also has an SPF of 42 which is incredibly important.  You should always be wearing a sunscreen.  It is the number one best way to prevent wrinkles and loss of elasticity.  Start wearing sunscreen as soon as you can and never stop.  Your skin will thank you!

This particular BB cream is touted as one of the best in the world and is emulated everywhere. It contains hydrolyzed collagen to help maintain elasticity, adenosine to get rid of dark spots, and squalane to provide a barrier for your skin to keep it safe from outside elements like the wind and sun.  It also is PACKED with antioxidants including vitamin A and has hyaluronic acid to keep your skin moisturized. This BB cream will not only nourish, but it will also protect your skin while you are wearing it.

I got No. 13 which is a Bright Beige/Milky Beige (two names but it's the same number).  It has a pump applicator which I prefer because it's not as messy.  Or maybe I'm just not as messy :D.  It melds perfectly with my skin and I'm pretty pale, I'm not gonna lie.  I tried to get a swatch but I'm not a professional swatcher.  You can't really even see where I tried to show how it blended into my skin.  Which is actually a good thing, right?  I wore this to a black tie event on Saturday and it looked good all day and well into the night.  I don't like being shiny and this kept my face non greasy the entire time.
Value: $22
On Sale in the USA Memeshop: $13.20  

Kokostar Foot Therapy-  I chose this because I have a soft spot for my very first foot peeling mask ever.  I don't remember which Memebox I got it in, but this was a whole new world for me.  I wore these for an hour and fifteen minutes, washed off my feet, then was sad when nothing happened.
After I'd completely forgotten I'd used this, my feet started peeling.  If you've never done this, you have no idea what it's like.  I'm going to say it's gross and satisfying at the same time. Your feet will be pink and soft like you wouldn't believe after it's done.  I'm now HOOKED on these things and buy them when I see them on sale.
If you've never done it, you'll have to try it sometime just for the experience at least!

Value: $10.00
On Sale in the USA Memeshop: $8.00

  7. Yay, I'm so excited that you got to do this! And Missha Perfect Cover #13 is one of my favorite BB creams. I really like Korean BB creams but a lot of them have sort of a yellow undertone that doesn't really work on me, but this one is a perfect match! :D

    1. Thank you! Pale people unite!! That Missha is my best shade ever so I'm happy I found it. I like the TonyMoly BCDation, too, but the Missha is better all around for me.
