Memebox – Superbox #50 Anti-Aging 3: October 2014

So it’s time again for another box from one of my latest obssesions: Memebox (pronounced Mi-mi-box). It features full size Korean beauty products and unlike monthly subs, you purchase themed boxes in advance that ship out to you later. The Memebox folks were kind enough to send me the Superbox #50 Anti-Aging 3 for review.   This box retailed for $39.00 (plus shipping) and is currently sold out, but if you’re interested be sure to check back for restocks.

Memebox’s description: “Far gone are the days when women start to worry about aging in their 40s. The onset of aging woes come earlier in a woman’s life these days (try 20s!) due to stress, pollution, prolonged exposure and etc, resulting in the premature onset of dreaded wrinkles, fine lines and age spots.

So now, meet the power players of anti-aging skin care and counteract all the visible signs of aging, including lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness, dullness and dehydration! Upgrade your beauty loot and stop time so that you can have beautiful skin longer”

Damn it Memebox, way to scare us with all these early aging, wrinkle talk. Personally, I do think that it’s a good idea to start early with some anti-aging products, but if you’re 22 there’s no need to go overboard. That being said, I’m turning 35 in a couple weeks, so I’m ready to dive head first into this box.

As usual an adorable and sturdy pink Memebox that will end up transformed into someone’s gift or polish storage.

Thankfully, we’ve received our dual-sided card that gives product info and instructions. I swear I keep waiting for the day Memebox forgets one of these and I need to start using google to translate Korean.

Now onto the items.
Wrinkle Cream
Pro You S Wrinkle SC Renewal Cream 100g
(Memebox Retail: $96.00)
Description: Free of paraben, imidazolidinyl urea,triethanolamidealcohol, and artificial coloring, Pro You’s S Wrinkle SC renewal Cream is extremely gentle to skin and works to enhance skin elasticity and firmness while replenishing and stimulating skin regeneration.”
Verdict: Hit!
I try to incorporate anti-aging products into my beauty routine regularly and have done so for the last 10 years. I’m excited to try out a Korean anti-aging product and I appreciate that it is gentle and does not contain any harsh chemicals.

Lip & Eye
Pro You Lip & Eye Wrinkle Spot Cream 15g
(Memebox Retail: $30)
Description: “Made from peptide, Actiflow and adenosine, this Lip & Eye Wrinkle Spot Cream works to firm up sagging skin near lip and eye areas by maintaining the healthy moisture/oil balance. Again, it contains no paraben, mineral oil, artificial coloring, alcohol and imidazolidinyl urea.
Verdict: Love!
This is another item in the Pro You line and just like the moisturizer it is free of harsh chemicals. I love eye creams and I use them religiously. If you can only do one anti-aging product, pick up a great eye cream and it will keep years off your face. I’m always psyched to try new eye creams so I loved this addition.

Wrinkle System
Pro You Multi White & Wrinkle Ampoule Dual Set 2ml X 8 each
(Memebox Retail: $48.00)
Description: “This is a day and night ampoule set made for addressing different skincare issues – controlling sebum and enlarged pores during the day, and maintaining skin clean, deeply moisturized and enhancing the overall skin elasticity overnight. Both ampoule, however work to fight sings of gaining with its adenosine-based formula for treating fine lines and wrinkles and offering a lifting effect to the skin.”
Verdict: Like
I will fully admit that I am slightly intimidated by this ampule system. I have never tried anything like it before, so for that reason alone I’m putting it in my like category. Part of my Memebox infatuation is that I get to try so many new things and products. I’d never have picked this up on my own, but I’m glad to try it out.

BB Cream
Tosowoong Super BB Cream 50 ml
(Memebox Retail: $12.00)
Description: “Tosowoong’s Super BB Cream contains a UV protection level of SPF15 and glides onto skin nice and smoothly for a perfect no makeup look. It works to cover up skin imperfections and enhance skin firmness all at once.”
Verdict: Love!
I’ve heard tons of wonderful things about Korean BB creams and so I’ve been waiting to get one in a box. I didn’t swatch this because my Makeup case is overflowing, but as soon as I finish up a couple other products I will give it a whirl. I’m hoping that it’s not too warm/yellow for my complexion, but it’s great to have an inexpensive BB Cream to experiment with.

Masks
Simply When Present Perfect Mask 20g X 3
(Memebox Retail: $11.00)
Description: “Simply When Present Perfect Masks are just the thing you need when your skin feels dry, rough, and aging! It’ll deliver intense skin revitalization and firmness in one easy go.”
Verdict: Hit!
I’m like a face mask whore, seriously. I love trying out different face masks and am adding this one to my ever growing collection. This is the only item from my box that you can grab on the Memebox site. A 10 pack is available for $27.00.

Neck Cream
Seatree Tibet Mushroom Neck Cream 45ml
(Memebox Retail: $12.00)
Description: “Infuse young vitality and suppleness to your sagging neck area with this adenosine-rich Neck Cream containing various organic ferments such as Tibet mushroom (kefir), pharbitis, paeonia japonica, and lactic acids. Firm up those lines and wrinkles by delivering deep nutrition and brightening up dull roughened skin.”
Verdict: Like
To be honest I think I’m probably a little too young to have to worry about a “sagging neck area” but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure so I’ll give this product a shot. I’ve never used anything like this so again, it will be something new to explore.

OVERALL
Full Box
Verdict:
Hit!

I thought this was a well put together anti-aging box. Memebox included everything you’d need for a full anti-aging skin routine. I’m going to put all these products aside until I use up a couple opened products and then I’ll use them together an anti-aging kit.

According to Memebox retail the total value of this box was $209.00, but they do seem to inflate the costs quite a bit. The cost to purchase this box would be $39.00 plus shipping and I would have been more than satisfied with paying that for these products. I will use everything in the box and it had a nice mix of familiar things (like eye cream) with more unusual items (like the ampules).

So if you love checking out memeboxes, be sure to come back as I have a whole bunch currently en route to me including: #16 Memebox Global, Princess Edition #1 Snow White, #51 My Cute Wishlist #2, #61 My Cute Wishlist #3, Memebox #44 Very Berry & Superbox #63 Blackheads No More Bundle, and Superbox #66 Tony Moly & Holika Superbox #67 Holika Bundle. My next Memebox review will be the Special #31 Earth & Sea Cosmetics. Be sure to follow my blog if you don’t want to miss it.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
