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
The price per box is $23.- (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 South Korea. The shipping cost is $6.99. They don't offer FREE express shipping anymore so it may take 17-24 days until it arrives at your place. Memebox is currently shipping to 36 countries, go to country list here. If your country is not on the list, you can email them and ask if it's possible to ship it to you.

MEMEBOX #5 AND #5-2
If you ordered Memebox #5-2 you will notice that 2 products are different - the non-Korean lipgloss and soap. Lots of people who received this box or #5-2 complained about it since they didn't want to receive non-Korean brands in their boxes. Memebox listened and said that they won't include non-Korean brands in the upcoming boxes.
LETS UNBOX MEMEBOX #5 SHALL WE ^____^?!
NUGANIC - CUSTOMIZE PORE CONTROL ESSENCE | 30ML FULL SIZE - WORTH $46.-
This is a pore control essence which reduces the appearance of dilated pores. It is a lightweight gel that penetrates pores to control pimples and blackheads and it rebalances your skin.
How to use? Apply to your face after applying a toner.
This is probably one of the few products that I like in this Memebox. I'm always in search of a product or method to reduce the appearance of my pores. Hope this helps! I'm surprised that this is a full size product since there is only 30ml in it and OMG its worth $46.- o__o"?! SO EXPENSIVE!
SELLA - ORGANIC SOAP | 18g SAMPLE SIZE - WORTH $3.60
Sella's organic cleansing bar is a facial cleanser made with 100% natural ingredients handpicked from the purest regions around the world. It claims to be the most effective anti-aging and pore minimizing cleanser. It's suitable for all skin types.
How to use? Gently massage over the face and neck using your fingertips. Rinse away using warm water.
Hmmm.. I don't really know what to think about this product. It's great to hear that this product includes 100% natural ingredients, but I somehow don't like cleansing bars that much since I'm scared that it will dry out my face. If you ordered memebox #5-2 you received a different soap.
LEADERS - CC CREAM & UV MOIST SUN GEL | 2 POUCH SAMPLES
In this trial kit you can find a poach sample of their CC Cream and their UV moist sun gel. The CC Cream stands in this case for Complete Capture Cream, which is a multi purpose cream for basic skincare and make up. The UV moist sun gel is also a multi purpose sun block for whitening, wrinkle reduction and hydration.
How to use? CC Cream: apply to clean skin after basic skincare. Get a small amount on the back of your hand and gently apply onto your face. UV Moist Sun Gel: Apply it to your face before sun exposure.
It's a pity that the samples are so small =(. I haven't tried these yet but I do like to try CC creams and sun blocks from different brands to see which one would suit my skin the most.
CNP - LABORATORY CLEANSING PERFECTA | 50ML SAMPLE SIZE - WORTH $7.67
The cleansing perfecta from CNP is an oil free cleansing gel which will thoroughly remove stubborn waterproof makeup and sunblock. It is suitable for all skin types.
How to use? Gently massage over the face and neck, using fingertips. Rinse away using lukewarm water.
Now this is a huge sample size! It's an oil free cleansing gel which is great for my dry skin kekeke.. I'm curious about this item!
DEAR JANE - TOUCH THE SILK VELVET PRIMER & GLAM ON YOUR SHIMMER BOMB | POUCH SAMPLES
Touch the silk velvet primer is a primer that covers the pores and sebums in your skin. Glam on your shimmer bomb is used as a highlighter for your nose and cheeks or as a shimmer for your face.
How to use? Touch the Silk Velvet Primer: apply to clean skin after basic skincare. Glam on Your Shimmer Bomb: mix with your foundation, BB or CC cream or apply little bit on your nose/cheeks as a highlighter.
I like the names of the products, but i'm not amused with the sizes of these samples. I haven't tried these yet but i'm curious of both products.
ESPOIR - COLOR FIT ROUGE LIP GLOSS IN THE COLOR MAGIC HOUR | 4.4g SAMPLE SIZE - WORTH $1,78
This lip gloss provides moisture and full coverage while highlighting your natural color. You can gently apply this on your lips using the tip.
This is definitely my third favorite item in this memebox! I love the color of this lip gloss and it also makes my lips feel moist, glossy, non-sticky and it looks plump! People who got the memebox #5-2 received a different lipgloss.
AROMATICA - TASTELESS AROMA THERAPY ROLL ON | 14ML FULL SIZE - WORTH $15
This claims to be one of the most effective and simple way to enjoy your aromatherapy. Tasteless aromatherapy roll on allows you to relax and sleep well.
How to use? Gently roll on the temples and pulse points.
The aroma scent will make you feel relaxed alright. Unfortunately i'm not a big fan of the scent, so i probably will give this product away to my granny or something.
LIPOZONE BODY AMPOULE | 5ml * 5ea SAMPLE KIT - WORTH $16.-
Lipozone body ampoule increase its skin firmness, which will help to reduce cellulite and fat cells! Apply the product for 28 days for best results.
How to use? Apply on your thigh, belly, arms, and butts, and make sure you do not use more than once capsule per day.
This looks like a scary product, but it does makes me curious if this works. They only provided a sample kit with 7 ampoules and for best results you need to apply this for 28 days (14 ampoules). I'm not sure if you're going to see any difference after 7 ampoules >.<"… Would you give this a try?
DERMA:B - DAILY MOISTURE BODY LOTION | 100ML SAMPLE SIZE WORTH $4.-
Derma:B's daily moisture body lotion provides 24-hour hydration and leaves skin feeling softer and smoother. Also, natural ingredient phytoncide calms irritated or reactive skin.
How to use? apply on your skin and allow the cream to sink in. It works even better straight after a bath or a shower.
This is the fourth product that I adore in this memebox! It just smells like regular hand cream but what I really like about this product is that it's not sticky after application and my skin feels pretty soft afterwards. I LIKE ^__^! And the sample is pretty large as well, I can easily use this for at least a month if I use this every day.
This was it girls… there are 4 items that I really like in this edition. I do think that the previous 2 boxes were better. The whole box is worth around $87.- while I only paid $23.- for it, not bad right?! It's a pity that they added lots of pouch samples this time, I prefer large samples >.<"! I can't wait to try the pore essence, I really hope it will reduce the appearance of my pores. Which product shall I review? Leave a comment below! Also, if you would like to order MEMEBOX #9, you have to be QUICK, PURCHASE HERE! Don't forget to get the 10$ discount when ordering, more information can be found above.
