Memebox is a Korean "kind-of-subscription" service that has an English website and ships globally! People call it a subscription service, but it's not really since you don't actually subscribe to it; you pick and chose which boxes you want to purchase and there's no monthly fee or anything. I've been interested in getting a Memebox for a while now (ever since I watched Allura Beauty do an unboxing) but the way Memebox works is that you purchase a box waaaaay in advance and then you have to wait for it to ship to you from Korea (unless you splurge/get a deal on EMS shipping). I'm a very impatient person, and I hate paying for and waiting for things to ship, so I put it off for a while. Then, at the end of August, they had a special where you can order any two boxes and pay shipping just for one so I decided to go for it. They actually do offer value sets where you can purchase two, three, four Memeboxes at once (though you can't choose, they only offer pre-made sets) and just pay for shipping once. Also, you get a free upgrade to express shipping with the value sets. But I wanted to make my own set, so I purchased the #52 Thumbs Up! Beauty Box and the #59 Halloween Special. I just got my Thumbs Up! box, but the Halloween one isn't shipping until October 10th so...the wait continues.
There are two different general types of Memeboxes: there are regular Memeboxes that are mixtures of samples and full-size products and there are Superboxes which are nothing but full-size products. There's a lot of variability of amount of products and total box values (different boxes cost different amounts; there are Memeboxes that cost more than Superboxes!), but that one rule always holds true. Both boxes I purchased are Superboxes, but that's only because I was attracted to the theme of the box (boxes are "themed" so that, even though the actual products you get are a mystery, you still can pick what is best suited to your wants and needs), not that they're any "better" than getting a normal Memebox.
So overall, in my Memebox #52 Thumbs Up! Beauty Box, I received seven full sized products that added up to a total value of $131! I only paid $32 for this box (plus $7 shipping, but since I got it during a deal where I only had to pay shipping once, I technically split shipping costs between two boxes so it's only $3.50) so I think I got a good deal! I also like the convenience of these boxes; it can be difficult to get Korean/Asian beauty products in the U.S. (especially without having to pay for mark-up and shipping) and Memebox says that they test their products for a couple weeks before they even agree to sell them in their store. If you're interested in Korean/Asian beauty products, or even if you just like surprises, check out Memebox!
