Just like the previous time, i'm going to give a short introduction about this website since some of you might not know what memebox is yet. If you already know, you can skip this part and go to the unboxing part, otherwise… keep on reading ^_-. At the memebox website, you can purchase various Korean cosmetics including exclusive Korean beauty products and the memebox beauty box which contains lots of full size products and samples. They always have at least 5 - 6 deluxe travel size or full-size products in each box! They don't offer a monthly subscription plan at the moment, so you need to buy each box every time it comes out. Memebox will inform you when the next box comes out through e-mail that you used when registering at their website. They offer limited quantity so you gotta be quick!
PRICE & SHIPPING
They have increased their price to $23.- per beauty box (excl. shipping) which is not expensive at all since you will receive lots of products which are worth a lot more than $23.-. The boxes are shipped from Soutch Korea. The shipping cost varies per region and is from $5.5 to $7.7 per box. They are currently offering free express shipping including a tracking number. It took around 5 days until it arrived in The Netherlands. Memebox is currently shipping to 36 countries, go to country list here.

UNBOXING MEMEBOX 4TH GLOBAL EDITION
In total there are 10 products inside, which includes 2 full size products and 8 deluxe samples. Seriously, the samples aren't small, they are pretty large! MEMEBOX told me that it is the most filled box so far.
PERIPERA - PERI'S TINT MINI MANDARIN JUICE | 2.5 ML - SAMPLE SIZE - WORTH $2.69
It's vivid and lightweight which gives an orange-red bite that doubles as a lip and cheek stain. Play with this transparent buildable color for casual to contemporary looks that lasts up to 5 hours (that's what they claim).
How to use? Use applicator to dab color to bare lips or cheeks. Apply more heavily for higher saturation of color, less for natural look. Blend with fingertips to even out. Re-apply if necessary.
I've tried this on my lips and it has an amazing pigmentation which really lasts for hours. Since it has a high pigmentation it's important that you don't use too much, otherwise you're not able to create that natural look. It's not moist too so you have to apply a lip balm or an other moisturizing lip product before you apply this tint. This lip tint has a nice scent of oranges which is not overwhelming.
GOODAL - REPAIR PLUS ESSENTIAL OIL | 15ML - SAMPLE SIZE - WORTH $7.20
It's a fast-absorbing multi-use essential oil derived from argan, olive, macadamia, sun flower seeds, jojoba, camellia, and green tea. This combination of oil from these super-seeds hydrates, firms and enhances the skin's complexion.
How to use? After washing thoroughly, apply 1-2 drops on your face. You can also apply to hair, nails and cuticles.
I haven't heard of this brand but this oil sounds interesting since i have a combination dry skin, this might help to hydrate it. I can't wait to give this a try.
T.E.N. - CREMORLAB MINERAL TREATMENT ESSENCE | 100ML - SAMPLE SIZE - WORTH $13.33
It's a huge sample size haha. Start your day with this essence derived from theraputic hot spring water to hydrate, tighten pores, brighten and even the complexion. It's paraben free, artificial pigment free, fragrance free and denatured alcohol free.

I somehow never liked to try out soaps since I always heard that it's drying for the face. However, since this is created for dry skin it might be not drying hmmm.. it makes me curious haha.
