Memebox Special #9 Skincare Review

I was contacted a while back by Memebox (pronounced Mi-mi-Box) to see if I would be interested in reviewing some of their K-beauty boxes. I love Korean beauty products, and I'm always excited to try something new, so I enjoy reviewing Memebox immensely.

Memebox(, is a Korean beauty box and e-commerce retailer that has created different beauty boxes for K-beauty lovers. Memebox isn't actually a subscription box, so you can decide when and what you want to purchase. Memebox ships directly from Korea, and ships to 45 different countries, but they cater mainly to US clients. They put out new boxes quite often, and I have a huge wish list on their site!

Memebox carries 4 main types of beauty boxes-

Memebox: The original Memebox comes packed with 4-8 full size products and deluxe samples.

Memebox Special Editions: Memebox special edition comes packaged with 4-8 full size products and deluxe samples that meet specific needs or concerns.

Superbox: Superbox was inspired by Memebox lovers who are looking for full-sized products catered to specific needs. Each Superbox series comes with its own special theme, or to meet specific needs.

Luckybox: Luckybox was created to give everyone a different and unique box full of their favorite products for you to feel lucky and special. Each Luckybox is unique and is filled with 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples.

Memebox sent me their Special #9 Skincare Box to review. Memebox Skincare Box is one of Memebox Special Editions which is curated with special themes, and contain the best K-beatuy items. It is a day and night skincare routine-in-a-box, that is to address all of your everyday skincare needs. These needs include pre-mature wrinkling and fine lines, large pores, rough texture, and dull and dry skin.

The first item in the Skincare box was a large sample size of Nasarang Rose Balancing Toner. Nasarang states that a high concentrate of natural rose oil is extracted from over 3 million Bulgarian Roses. This is a toner, but on the thicker side, more like a serum. It deeply moisturizes and brightens the complexion. This feels amazing, and I would definitely purchase it in the future.

The next item in the box was also a deluxe sample of Verikos Advanced Power Tightening Cream. This cream is enriched with lotus flower water, collagen, bifida ferments, and peptide components. It hydrates and nourishes the skin, while fighting the signs of aging and improving elasticity and restoring your natural glow.

The Skincare box includes a full size of Boscians Cycle Repair Wrinkle Spot. This spot cream is for treating fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It's loaded with galactomyces ferments, peony root extracts, and adenosine. It is gentle enough to use around the eyes (which is where I need help), where it fills in wrinkles.

The next item is Benton's Snail Bee High Content Essence. This full size serum contains snail secretion filtrate, bee venom and EGF to cleans rough, damaged skin from external stresses and pollution. It helps trouble skin, increases moisture supply, evens skin tone, helps brighten the complexion and remove signs of aging.

My skin is extremely sensitive, and while I reluctantly added a snail serum to my skincare routine, cosmetics that contain bee venom (like lip plumpers) tend to irritate my skin. I sent this particular product to a friend, and she loves it so far!

The Skincare box contained a full size bottle of Dewytree Tea Tree Porest Powder in Toner. While this toner contains green clay and tea tree leaf extracts, it not only treats blemishes and clears clogged pores, but it does it without drying your face!

My skin is also very dry, so I wasn't sure if this would dry me out or not. I do feel like my pores have enlarged as I've aged. This definitely doesn't dry me out, and I'm hopeful that it will help shrink my pores.

Also by Dewytree, there was a full size bottle of White Dew 7 Cut Extreme Serum. This is a gentle serum that helps with lightening freckles, dark spots , uneven skin tone, and sagging skin. It works to soothe, tighten and brighten your face for a silkier, healthier-looking complexion.

The last item in the box was a full size jar of Secret Key Super Plumping Jelly Cream. This gel is packed with blueberry, orange, almond, broccoli, pumpkin, and salmon eggs. It is designed to bring back youthful skin, and to treat the signs of aging, and to moisturize your face, while plumping for a healthier look.

I really enjoy the texture of gels, but they often aren't moisturizing enough. I love this moisture gel so far. It definitely has made my skin look healthier!
