Want to try out some Korean beauty products? A beauty box is a great place to start! There are several places you can get them online, but today we’ll be reviewing the 2 most popular ones: MEMEBox and Yesstyle.
MEMEBox is the leader in korean beauty boxes and has three main boxes. Two of them are for skin and one is for hair. Lets take a look at both. (Get the coupon here)
1) Mask and Study Box – $25
This box is designed for the diligent Korean student who spends a night in studying. But, if you’re going to be in and all alone, you might as well pamper your skin. Here’s what it includes:
Cream Mask Sheets: It comes with 3 of these by It’s Skin. They are a nutrition mask, a moisturizing mask, and a glow cream mask for radiant, dewey skin.
Skingel Masks: There are 3 Jeju skingel masks in Hanrabong, cactus, and green tea.
Moisturizer – Elensilia-INTRACELL moisturizer has escargot and hyaluronic acid and gives you deep moisturization. Great for dry skin.
Firming Gel – Also by Elensilia-INTRACELL made with escargot and placenta.
Revitalizing Gel – made from escargot and propolis.
Repairing Gel – for deeper noursishment, made from escargot and caviar
Bonvivant That Day Mask Pack – There’s three, one for blemish care, one is hydrating and ones is for brightening.
Stationary – Per it’s theme, it comes with some stationery! There’s a black notebook, a pink lego-style pencil case, a memebox pen that looks like a pencil, and a notepad with a cute little kitty in a MEMEbox box.
I was thinking of doing an unboxing video, but Coffeatmyhouse already made one and I really like hers. So, I’m just going to put hers on here since she did such a great job.
They have a generous 101 day guarantee, but I’ve never returned anything and I doubt you will want to return it either. The stuff you get really is top-of-the-line, and you can check the reviews for yourself. I found a coupon code for you that will let you get 10% off your first beauty box. The code is: 101smiles.
YESSTYLE BOXES – Most around $20
There are 2 types of Korean beauty boxes at YestStyle.
- Korean Beauty Boxes
- Brand-Specific Korean Beauty Boxes
Korean Beauty Box
The Korean Beauty YesStyle Boxes are a little harder to talk about because they don’t send you the same thing every time. What they do is they randomly pick 10 things including: skin care, makeup, body care, hair care, etc. The brands include:
- Etude House
- Tony Moly
- The Face Shop
But, despite the randomness, they are VERY well reviewed.
Brand-Specific Korean Beauty Box
If you want to get more specific and make sure they send you stuff from one particular brand, you can currently pick from Etude House or Laneige, and they will only send you stuff by that brand.
For both the Laneige beauty box and Etude House beauty box, they still send you random stuff, but they keep it specific to that brand. Again, you can expect to get products for skin care products.
Etude House Examples:
Laneige Box Examples:
By the way, you can buy any of these in the US, UK, or Canada because you purchase it online.
