The box I was sent to review is the Global #13 Memebox.

Yufit Eon Wheat-Germ Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $48
Donga Tempo Eco Natural Tampons (3) – Value $2
I was pretty surprised to see tampons in this box. In my opinion tampons should only be in time-of-the-month subscriptions!
I’m intrigued by this wheat germ cream, but unfortunately the ingredients aren’t listed in english so I’m not sure what’s in it. It smells lovely, and it’s a very thick cream – perfect for the winter months! I am concerned though that it lists Whitening in addition to Brightening and Anti-Wrinkle as it’s benefits. I think I’ll hold off on using this one till I find an ingredient list.
Nuganic Customized Pure Snail Color Control Cream – FULL SIZE! Value $54
CNP Derma Scalp Shampoo – 25 g Value $2.70
CNP Laboratory Tone-Up Protection Sun – 15 ml Value $10
Good news – this CC cream has the ingredients listed in english. Bad news (for me) – it’s enriched with snail mucus extract! Also, it’s not CC cream like I expected (there’s no color tint – it’s more like a primer). It has SPF and it’s supposed to help even out your skin tone and provide a base for you to apply makeup over. (If you’ve tried this and recommend it let me know – maybe I’ll get over my snail mucus fear if it’s a life-changing product!)
Soy Bio+ Fermented Lumpoule – 10 ml Value $25
CX Detoxifying Air Therapy – FULL SIZE! Value $50
This Air Therapy set includes a mask and a “carboxy pack.” You apply the carboxy pack to your skin, then put the mask over it and let it sit for 20-30 min. It’s another product I’m curious about but want to find the ingredient list first!
Verdict: The value for this Memebox is great – the cost was about $30 and it has a retail value of over $190. I think I’ll try buying another Memebox soon, but I’m going to opt for a more makeup oriented box. When it comes to skincare I’m really particular about the ingredients I use, so I need a list of ingredients with every product.
Have you tried Memebox? I’m a little late to the Memebox trend – so let me know which types of boxes you recommend! (The site feels a little overwhelming to me – I’m not sure which box to start with!)
