Un-boxing: Memebox Special #6 Whole Grain

||||| Like It 1 Like it! |||||

disclosure-from-giveaway disclosure-affiliate-links

Laaaaaaa! I cannot tell you how excited I am! I won this box in a giveaway. :WTF: I rarely win anything, ever. Anyways! I must show you what’s inside, but first let me tell you about Memebox! Let me warn you this post is seriously image heavy. Also I will be reviewing products individually! This is just an un-boxing to show you what’s inside! Also it looks like the Whole Grain box was re-stocked!

Memebox‘s story
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 boxes!
Memebox
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
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.
Luckybox
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.

Onto the un-boxing!


So my Memebox came in a cute pink bubble wrap envelope, which I didn’t get a picture of. D: But inside that is the adorable hot pink box with all the goodies inside. When I opened it I saw that the lid had stuff printed on it. It says:

Next thing I noticed was the printed card. I really like that they list the size and value of the items, as well as directions on how to use each product and a small summary of what it does. Then I saw the products! I think I squealed in delight. I was so excited to get this box and find out what was in it. Luckily for me there isn’t anything I won’t put to good use!

Onto the items!
