Memebox: Special #38 My Mask Box

This is my fourth Memebox, and I have several more ordered.  I'm OBSESSED with Memebox.  They are not a subscription service; instead they allow you to only buy the boxes you're interested in, although most are mysteries.  I would be stoked if they did have a subscription service though.  This box came with a nifty card detailing the benefits of each product and how to use them, which is awesome because the information on the packaging is all in Korean.

A little background:  "Memebox curates only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. An extremely competitive industry, Korean cosmetics are renowned for their unprecedented quality developed through cutting-edge technology."

I adore all of the masks I've received in my Memeboxes, especially the fabric masks.  I was especially excited after I researched past masks boxes.  However, this one was vastly different, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.  There just weren't nearly as many fabric masks as there have been in previous boxes.

This box was $23 for the kit (plus $6.99 S+H), and using a $5 off coupon code, "N233" and a Memepoint, I paid $23.99.  The box has a total value of $144, so that is CRAZY!

"We're back again with the latest addition to our Memebox Mask series!  Whether you're a busy career woman, a tired mother of three, or studying for finals week, we all have our off days.  Wake up in the morning with deeply moisturized skin not having to worry about dryness during the night.  Give your skin the extra attention it deserves with our new Mask Edition #5."

Included in this kit were six full-sized items, one deluxe sample, and a surprise sample.

PURE SMILE Mask Sheet 5 Set in Honey (20ml x 5 FULL-SIZE) - Rich in Vitamin E and collagen, Pure Smile Mask Sheet is moisturizing and relaxing, and its gentle formula is suitable for all skin types.

INSOBEAU Beauty Secret Step Up Bust Mask (FULL-SIZED) - The Beauty Secret Step Up Bust Mask is a mask patch especially designed to moisturize, soften, and lift up your bust easily throughout the day or overnight.  The nourishing formula rich in Vitamin C and silk amino acid will deliver a concentrated skincare to your bust line.

I love fabric masks, so it was great to get FIVE in one package so I can stash some away for a rainy day.  And what would a mask box be without fabric masks!  These were your typical, inexpensive sheet masks, so not much to say, but these are always refreshing and very moisturizing.  I gave the bust mask a try, but I don't know what it did, if anything.  It goes around the entire, um, girls.  I really could've used a larger size though.  Not bragging, but I'm a chubby girl, and bigger boobs just kinda come with the territory.  It was a little inconvenient because the pads are supposed to stay on for eight hours, and since I didn't want to goop my good bras up, I wore an old, horribly uncomfortable one.  They didn't want to stay in place under just a shirt.  Like I said, no obvious results.

PRO YOU Pore Control Facial Mask (200g FULL-SIZED) This Pore Control Facial Mask boosts strong absorption level which effectively removes all blackheads and skin impurities from enlarged pores and prevents skin damages and roughening.  While the hyaluronic acid and vegetable collagen delivers deep hydration into the skin, the aloe vera gel, witch hazel, green tea, and chamomile extracts work to tighten back up the pores after blackhead remover and soothe irritated or damaged skin.

MILKY DRESS Aqua Sleeping Pack (50ml FULL-SIZED) - Highly recommended for dehydrated, coarse skin, this Aqua Sleeping Pack supplies instant hydration and nutrition deep down into the skin while also soothing, brightening, and treating fine lines and wrinkles for a visibly younger-looking complexion the next morning.

TOSOWOONG Help Me Neck Patch (2) - If you've been stressing over dry and sagging skin around your neck, Tosowoong's Help Me Neck Patch is the perfection solution!  Its bio cellulose sheet made from coconut fermentation works to replenish and lift up the skin easily and instantly.

I won't be trying the Pore Control Facial Mask.  Not to brag, but I don't really get blemishes.  Don't hate.  My pores are small, and I don't have roughening or damaged facial skin, but that's because I'm photosensitive and rarely venture out into the sun.  It'll make a good giveaway item.  The sleeping pack went on kinda thick and goopy.  It had a nice, clean smell; almost no smell at all.  It left my skin feeling very moisturized.  I tried the neck patch, but I'm not sure it can work for my sagging skin.  I have what I like to refer to as a "ch'neck".  A ch'neck, similar to a double chin, is where you have a small chin and long neck, but the skin under your chin just seems to connect to the bottom of your neck; doesn't loop back up and hang like a double chin.  It's super sexy.

ELIZAVECCA Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack (100ml FULL-SIZED) - This popular Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack boosts of its jello-like texture which endorses fast absorbance of rich nutrients deep into the skin.  The high concentrate of collagen peptide from the Jella Pack works to increase skin elasticity and radiance.

PUREDERM Wrinkle Reducer Gel Patches (6ea FULL-SIZED) - Purederm Wrinkle Reducer Gel Patches are specially formulated for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around and under your eyes with a gentle and effective formula.

The Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack was wonderful.  I'll use it often.  The texture is a little disconcerting at first, but you don't need much.  My face feels amazingly smooth.  Plus it has the most glorious mango scent.  Made me crave a delicious tropical margarita.  The Wrinkle Reducer Gel Patches made the skin under my eyes feel super soft and silky.

MILKY DRESS The White Platinum Anti-wrinkly & Whitening Cream (probably 1ml) - This intensive skin care brightens dull skin and gives an instant brightening effect.  It protects the skin from the harmful environment with arbutin for whitening and alpha-arbutin effective in brightening It includes vegetable ingredients of rosa demascena flower extract and rhodiola rosea root extract, and makes the skin clean, transparent, and brilliant.

This final item was a surprise only because it wasn't listed on the card detailing which products were included in the box.  Must've just had a bunch of these small sample packs leftover and decided to add them at the last minute.  Luckily, in the middle of all the Korean on the back side of the packet, there was a description in English.

I wish I had gotten more than just a small sample of this.  I used it on my arms because I have had SO MANY masks to review, and in one set of directions I found it said to use it anywhere on your body.  This had the faintest, lovely scent.  I can't quite put my finger on it, but it reminded me of lilies and apples.  It left my arms feeling so smooth and soft.  I really like it.

THE VERDICT:  I was hoping to see maybe some black tea sheet masks, or at the very least a bigger variety of fabric masks, and maybe a nice hardening clay mask.  However, this box has an amazing value and fantastic products, so I have no complaints.  This may have been the biggest win yet for Memebox.


  1. I also thought this was a great box! The Elizavecca Jello texture is SO weird!! But it is so nice.
    I havent used the neck masks yet but the ingredient list is so good I kinda just want to use them on my face instead of my neck. #kbeautybloghop

    1. Elizavecca Jella is hands-down my favorite product in this box.

  2. I loved this box SO much, and your review was fantastic! I'm very jealous that you don't have breakouts and giant crater pores....ahh to switch skin for a day! That sounded way creepier than I

    I LOVE the Milky Dress line of product, and that little sample of whitening cream you got is to die for. I would definitely recommend the full size. It doesn't really make you look white, but it really just brightens and evens out the skin tone beautifully, and you're right- the scent it to die for.

    I gave my mom the neck patches because she's really into finding a miracle product that helps the sagging skin she has there, and she said they work quite well! Of course, no miracle results, but she liked them enough to buy a 10 pack on ebay, so I guess that's something! :) #kbeautybloghop

    1. I looked around for the whitening cream, but it looks like they may have discontinued it and replaced it with some of their newer products.

      I'm excited I have three more boxes sitting here waiting to be reviewed, just so much Memebox!!! I'm having a full Cafe Box experience tomorrow.
