I’m happy to report that if you want to have a happy hair but don’t know where to start, all you need to do is unbox this Memebox Hair & Body³*. No kidding. Over the last few weeks, I have been putting a lot of emphasis on my hair care routine and since I realized that my hair is about to take a beating from the scorching summer sun, I wanted to be prepared. Are you?
In case you have no idea what I’m rambling about or what the heck is Memebox, here’s some useful info below to help you out. It’s totally understandable if you’ve not catched up with the latest boxes they produce because even I have a hard time keeping up to them!
[toggle title=”What is Memebox?”]
Memebox is a rapidly-growing, leading e-commerce beauty retailer born in Seoul, currently headquartered in Palo Alto, California.
Memebox curates only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. An extremely competitive industry, Korean cosmetics are renowned for their unprecedented quality developed through cutting-edge technology. At the forefront of the industry, Memebox is determined to deliver the enchantment of discovery through effortless experiences, at prices you’ll never say no to.
Gently guiding your discovery, Memebox believes in offering consumers the utmost freedom, steering away from the traditional subscription-based programs offered by most other sampling services. Order from Memebox only when you want to, as often as you want to. In addition to our box series, Memeshop carries full-sized products featured in previous Memeboxes, offering easy access to Korean cosmetic trends.
The original Memebox comes packed with 4 – 8 full sized products and deluxe samples, carefully curated from Korea to give you the best experience and widest exposure to a range of products.
Superbox was inspired by our Memebox lovers, looking for full-sized products catered to specific needs. Each Superbox series comes with it’s own theme, designed to target particular concerns.
We only have a limited supply of each Memebox series, and Luckybox was created to bring back our most popular items selected from previously sold-out Memeboxes, all combined in one wonderful collection. Each Luckybox contains a selection of products from past Memeboxes, occasionally including a few new favorites we simply could not resist including. Just like our Memebox and Superbox, Luckybox products are sourced directly from Korea, including only the best-loved items thoughtfully curated by our cosmetic aficionados at Memebox.

Memebox Hair & Body, which retails for $23.00 (plus shipping)*, brings head-to-toe pampering Korean beauty items. With Memeboxes, it’s kinda tough to know what will be in store for you since originally, there were no sneak previews or reveals, these days however, you get a heads up to one or two products in your box. I got to actually try all of the products in the box (believe it or not) for few weeks apart from Annagaspi Brilliant Body Design Patch, which will be tested today for the first time.
There are 8 products in this box and a good balance of hair and body treats. My favorite out of the bunch and I carry with me this season is this beautiful gel perfume in a tube! EVAS RoseMine Perfume Touch in Blessing Blossoms is a breath of fresh air on hot summer days, when you normally end up smelling like sweat! Ew. And ladies & gents, if there’s one thing I despise with a passion about summer, that would be SWEATING!
So here’s the breakdown of the products and retail prices to give you an idea. (Note: All Memeboxes come with a guide card with information on the products you receive, price, and how to use them. Pretty handy.
1. Zivon Plu Scrub Oriental Jin + 50g (full size: 200g – $25)
This gentle moisturizing scrub treatment contains red ginseng, olive oil, macadamia oil, argan oil and other natural oils. And strangely enough it smells like a ripe guava, which I find amazing! This is your body, hand and foot scrub (not for your face) to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells and restore your skin with its formulation. By far, it’s the first body scrub I’ve encountered that actually foams or lathers up, while the scrub granules are non-abrasive but get the job done.
2. 1004 Laboratory Kiss the Perfume Brilliant Hair Treatment 300g – normal price $49
I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for Cherry Blossom scents so I was looking forward to do some serious hair treatment session with this product. It smells very feminine and floral, which I love. And I think hair products should be in a packaging similar to this, with the whole pump system just cause it’s very convenient while in the shower, or bath. Be prepared to come out from your refreshing shower and smelling totally gorgeous.
3. Annagaspi Brilliant Body Design Patch (2 pouch 4 each – normally $17)
This is supposed to be a hydro-gel type body patch that helps reshape and firms swollen legs and feet. The effect lasts normally for 8 hours. Gotta see how this works on my swollen legs (if I ever get one, to be honest and I should say, I hope not).
4. SD Hair Steam Hair Pack 30g full size – normally $21
I was really confused with this product due to the 7 Days Hair Pack label on its packaging. I was under the impression that I can use it for what 7 days? Duh. SD or Seven Days is the name of the brand. Silly me. This hair pack comes as a shower cap type where the hair essence of highly concentrated argan oil, royal jelly and black food-three ingredients (not sure what this is) is just waiting to get rubbed/massaged all over your hair.
There was a few fiddling with the shower cap since things get slippery while in the shower but in the end, I did manage to put it on and left it for a good 15 minutes. It’s good for one usage, but honestly, you could easily use the shower cap on it’s own again. You just have to clean it thoroughly inside since you don’t want any essence residue left behind and make it all yucky inside. Everything seems to be floral-scented inspired in this box. Not that I’m complaining.
5. Rosapacific 19 Real Neck Sheet 12 g full size ($3.5 each)
Oh wow. That’s exactly what I said when I saw this neck sheet from Rosapacific. Each sheet is made from bio-cellulose, a natural and innovative gel developed from the latest biotechnology with one mission, pamper your neck to avoid the first signs of aging! It’s supposed to be sourced from fermented coconut juice to supply hydration at its finest. Oh well, it doesn’t hurt to try so I start ‘patching up’ my neck and sat and walked around like a zombie because few movements or head-shaking, this sheet will come off. You can of course lie down and just have a relaxing time but I chose to multi task. It’s cooling and soothing and skin feels moisturized after.
6. Golden Glove Exfoliating Gloves 1 pair ($16)
How can a glove be so expensive?? This is probably one of the less use product in this box and although this definitely has that ‘scrub the dirt away’ power, I find the material a little bit coarse on my skin. On a second thought, I might start using this more on my stretch marks and see what it does.
Pheww.. we’re almost there with this unboxing, promise!
7. Kocostar Nail Theraphy 4g x 3each full size – $15
I love nail packs. And it’s exciting to actually see more brands like Kocostar offering this product in the market. This reminds me of the first nail brightening pack I purchased from The Face Shop not long ago and it really does some magic on my dry cuticles and skin around my nails. Kocostar Nail Theraphy helps repair stressed nails, strengthens them against splitting, peeling and breakage. Great job for including this Memebox – high five!
Last but absolutely not the least:
8. EVAS RoseMine Perfume Touch 13 g full size -$17
This was randomly selected and other scents are Fresh Green Tea and Gleaming Bijou. I’m curious what Fresh Green Tea smells like. As for Blessing Blossoms, it’s your girly girl’s scent with a hint of chic-ness. Rose scents can be very tricky sometimes and not everyone’s favorite (ever had a rose-scented-product-smelling-like-grandma encounter? ). But EVAS nailed it with this fragrance and the fact that it comes in a tube, too! Perfect travel buddy and super easy to apply. And how pretty is that packaging??
There’s currently a Memebox Hairy & Body 3, which you can find HERE and this particular Memebox is showing sold out on their site! Bummer! I’m telling you Memebox sells like hotcakes so I would totally keep an eye out on this particular box
since I’m pretty sure that it will make a come back. Crossing my fingers (and toes) for you.
Total value of this box: $144.75
