Unboxing: Memebox Special #29 Scrub Box

Please bear with me, my Memebox obsession has gone out of hand! Hot on the heels of the last box is this scrub box. I still have over 10 boxes of Memebox outstanding that will be shipped later so you’ll be seeing a lot more unboxing. I’m sorry, I have gone totally mad. Oh, actually I’m not sorry when I receive all these little boxes – they brighten up my day and gives me something to look forward to.

The shipping date for this was fixed on 5 September and I received this on 17 September. This box costs USD29, plus USD6.99 for shipping from Korea.

What is Memebox?
Memebox is a non-subscription mystery beauty box company. Each regular Memebox comes with 4 to 8 full-sized or deluxe sample of Korean products, while Superbox comes with only full sized products. Shipping dates are set by the company; check the product description for information about when the box is scheduled to start shipping.

Item 1: Eglips JolieBeBe Lip Polish
Full size 15ml, Value of $7
Product Description: Duo-polish effect of the bead-like grains and the jojoba oil formula work to smooth out dry, flaky skin for cleaner, softer and healthier looking lips! The shea butter complex also moisturizes the lips, preventing it from dehydration during application. The olive oil and sweet floral scent leave your lips soothed, moist and sweetly smelling as well.
How to use: After cleansing, massage the Lip Polish onto lips and roll it over 20-30 times with your finger. Rinse off with water or with a tissue.
Quick thoughts: A lip polish! I’ve tried a few lip scrubs but never a polish – I wonder if it’s any different! This will be interesting to try (although… I have to roll it “20-30 times”?).

Item 2: New Girl Fast Scalp Hair Root Up Ampoule
Full Size 20 ml, Value of $6
Product Description: An advanced scalp care formula, the Fast Scalp Hair Root Up Ampoule is enriched with green tea water, viotin, salicylic acid, and dex panthenol and works to clean your scalp by scaling away all dead skin cells and built up skin impurities in your scalp.
How to use: Apply an adequate amount directly to your scalp and massage it on with your fingers. Then shampoo and rinse off.
Quick thoughts: Okay, I’m not too sure about this product – using acid on my scalp? But I think it’ll be interesting to try… hopefully my hair doesn’t fall out!

Item 3: Pibugonggam G Facial Scrub
Full Size 50g, Value of $13
Product Description: This scrub is made from natural scrub ingredients – orange and tangerine peels – and works to exfoliate gently without stimulating the skin. The vitamin rich grapefruit, sea buckhorn, red poppy petals and aronia extracts rejuvenate and cleanse the skin all at once.
Quick thoughts: Natural face scrub! I love trying face scrubs and I love citrus products, so I can sense that this will be a win in my book! Definitely will give this a good go!

Item 4: The Herb Story Foot Scrub Peppermint & Tea Tree
Full Size 200g, Value of $14
Product Description: Walnut shell powders from the Foot Scrub functions to gently exfoliate callouses and any other skin impurities from your feet for a smoother, cleaner foot condition.
How to use: Gently massage the foot scrub onto wet feet and then rinse off with warm water.
Quick thoughts: Another win! My feet is really rough and hard, so I’m happy to receive a foot scrub.

Item 5: Tosowoong Perfume Body Scrub Wash
Full Size 160g, Value of $19
Product Description: Infused with almond, apricot, walnut and honey extracts, this sweet scented Perfume Body Scrub Wash will not only refresh your body, but it will also refresh your spirits! This luxurious body scrub gently sloughs away dead skin cells, leaving smooth, radiant, polished skin.
Quick thoughts: Always in need of more body scrubs – I actually wished that they had put in more body scrubs but I can always use the face scrubs on my body if I don’t like them so I’m not complaining.

Item 6: insobeau Natural Base Cereal Peeling Mask
Full Size 150ml, Value of $27
Product Description: The all-natural formula made from corn starch and rice flour offers a concentrated blackhead, pore, skin elasticity, brightening, and sebum control treatment by gently peeling away excess dead skin cells and skin impurities and delivering deep nutrition all at once
How to use: Spread out an adequate amount evenly over your face and massage it gently for a couple of minutes. Rinse off with warm water and finish off with a foam cleanser.
Quick thoughts: I’m a little scared whenever I see the word “peeling” for a face product. But after reading it carefully, I don’t think it’s a true chemical ‘peeling’ mask so it’s not so scary but I would still do a patch test on my legs first before trying on my face.

Overall this is a great box! I like that the whole box are filled with things that I will use regularly and likely to finish up, but at the same time it’s not boring – I’m glad that they threw in a few items that I didn’t think of trying, like the lip polish and scalp care. Definitely a winning box to me!

The total value of this box comes up to $86 according to the product card, while I paid $35.99 inclusive of postage. While it’s not the highest value box out there, I think this has one of the highest utility – because most items are things that will be used regularly, not just tried once for its novelty value and then quickly forgotten.
