It all happened so fast.
The buzz in the world of beauty lately has been all about subscription boxes. Ipsy, Birchbox, Glossybox, Beauty Fix… the possibilities are endless. Never being one to act impulsively with so much qualitative data at my disposal, I took my time to ensure I chose the perfect one for me. And then… into my life came, Memebox.
My first taste of Korea’s number-one, online beauty retailer came while exploring another blog: A Year of Boxes’ “Memebox SuperBox #33 Collagen” review. My excitement as I read this review was palatable and only grew as I went on the Memebox site and found this Collage box to still be available (alas, it is now sold out). Of course, I snagged it on the spot… in addition to two others: Anti-Aging 3 and Global #17. Since then six… SIX more boxes have been purchased and are being eagerly anticipated. Do I have a problem? More than likely. But how can something so right ever be wrong?
The beauty (pun intended) of this service is multi-faceted:
- you don’t have to sign on for a monthly subscription. Boxes are released continuously and you can purchase as many or as few as appeal to you, at any time (though many sell out fast!)
- unlike other subscriptions, you aren’t entirely blind as to what you might receive in each box. Memeboxes have themes, though the overall content is typically a surprise (which I think is wonderful – who doesn’t love presents?! Even if you did buy them yourself. Let me be the first to say – you deserve it!) So, to a degree, you can still personalize your purchase based on interests and needs.
- Asian cosmetics are seemingly much more effective than American brands. Just a basic review of ingredients in their products demonstrates this, but I’ve already found it to be the case in my own, brief experience.
- also unlike most other subscriptions, with Memebox, you receive mostly FULL-SIZED products. This was the thing that really pulled me in. The value you receive for your investment is just incredible – even if Memebox inflates RTV.
In future posts, I am very excited to bring you unboxings and reviews of these products. I encourage you to check out Memebox for yourself and let me know your thoughts… or prior experience, since I know many of you would likely consider me late to the party 😉
