Another Memebox… I have another 12 more boxes waiting to be shipped from Memebox so please bear with me for the next 2 months. These are all outstanding from earlier when I was upset at work and shopping is what I do when I’m upset! I have stopped buying more Memebox this month, and I told myself not to at least until I use up enough products to make some space in my room so hopefully I’ll be able to stick to it. Memebox, please don’t put out any more cool themes any time soon!
I bought this as a value set with the Memebox Superbox #82 Skinfood – so I only had to pay one standard shipping for 2 boxes with free upgrade to express shipping. The shipping date for this was fixed on 1 November and I received this on 11 November after much shipping troubles/screw-up from SingPost. The set of 2 boxes cost me USD52, plus another USD6.99 for shipping from Korea. Individually, it’s priced at USD29, plus another USD6.99 for standard shipping.

Memebox Superbox #84 Skinfood
Skinfood is the first ever Korean cosmetics brand to emphasize the importance of “feeding” the skin! Skinfood travels all over the world to find the highest quality ingredients to bring you first class cosmetics and skin care! All cosmetics are infused with a healthy blend of fruits, veggies, and your delicious treats to enhance your natural beauty. This box is brimming with a delicious mix of Skinfood’s skin care and makeup to give you a beauty blast!
Item 1: Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off
Full size 100g, Value of $9
Product Description: An effective facial exfoliator rich in various minerals and vitamins. Use occasionally to cleanse away excessive dead skin cells, oil, and skin impurities piling up in the pores. It’ll bring back healthy radiance and suppleness with just a single use.
Quick thoughts: Yes! I’ve actually been eyeing this mask for a long time, just didn’t want to buy it since I still have a lot more masks to run through, but since I’ve got it now I’m excited to try it!
Item 2: Skinfood Facial Water Vita-C Cream
Full size 75g, Value of $13
Product Description: Quench thirst by delivering a richly nutritious blend of Vitamin C complex and Alaska glacier water deep into skin. The Vitamin C complex contains extracts from raspberry, acai berry, cranberry and strawberry and works to replenish healthy energy to dehydrated, dulled complexion.
Quick thoughts: The description makes it sound like it will smell of berries, which I love, and I so want to open it right now to smell it… but I have so much face creams right now so I can’t! If only I had a few more faces to put all these creams!
Item 3: Skinfood Choco Eyebrow Powder Cake
Full size 4g, Value of $5
Product Description: Formulated with cacao extracts, this carries two naturally blending grey, khaki, or brown shades for shaping and defining fine arches with an easy sweep.
Quick thoughts: I have very strong brows naturally and already look very fierce without any brow makeup so this will be going into the swap/sale box.
Item 4: Skinfood Egg White Pore Meringue Foam
Full size 200ml, Value of $13
Product Description: Abundant, meringue-like fine bubbles penetrate deep into skin without irritating or dehydrating the skin texture. Highly recommended for weak and sensitive oily skin types.
Quick thoughts: Will most likely be swapping/selling this off as it’s not targeted at my skin type.
Item 5: Skinfood Tomato Whitening Toner
Full size 180ml, Value of $17
Product Description: A premium toner made from sun-ripe tomato extracts and Vitamin C complex to make skin brighter, clearer and suppler.
Quick thoughts: Tomato toner! Will be in my to-try-soon basket.
The value of this box came up to USD57 versus the USD29 for the individual box. The value of the box is also pretty low like The Face Shop box, but some of the stated prices are a lot lower than what it is in our local Skinfood stores in Singapore. I’m very sure that the mask is SGD20+ locally, compared to the USD9 (~SGD12) listed on the product card.
I think on a whole, even though the value is higher than The Face Shop box, I’m not wowed by it and frankly quite disappointed. There are only 5 products, and two of which I can’t use or have no use for. I feel like Memebox knows that the brand name will sucker all of us in, so it doesn’t matter what they throw in the box because we will buy it anyway.
