Memebox Zero Cosmetics Box

Over the last few months I’ve seen some bloggers receive some really awesome beauty boxes from Korean company, Memebox.  I’d never ordered my own until I saw the Zero Cosmetics box, which promised zero alcohol, zero parabens, zero DEA and zero Formaldehyde. I had to have it, obviously.

I think I ordered way back in May or June, and then it shipped from Korea at the beginning of this month. I was so excited to receive the shipping notice, and then my mail carrier held it hostage at the post office! Why they won’t leave packages at my front door is seriously beyond me. I was pleased to see it wasn’t because there were any issues with customs fees though, they just have a vendetta on fun packages.

Memebox Special #14 Zero Cosmetics Box Review / hellorigby!

Memebox Special #14 Zero Cosmetics Box Review

Papa Recipe Bombee Soap / Memebox Zero Cosmetics / hellorigby! Papa Recipe Bombee Soap – So normally I’m not a fan in the slightest of bar soap, but this one did not make my skin feel nearly as dry or tight as bar soaps normally do. It’s very mild, and really doesn’t have much of a scent, but contains honey, jojoba oil, and citron seed oil. It’s made especially for dry and sensitive skin, which is perfect for me. ($13 value)

Benton Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream / Memebox Zero Cosmetics / hellorigby! Benton Snail Bee High Contrast Steam Cream – Okay, what the what. This has snail secretions and bee venom. I’m sorry, but this just freaks me out. I’m not using it because I’m not sure if I’m allergic to bee stings or not, and having my face puff up or something over some Korean skin cream wasn’t in my plans this weekend. #Sorrynotsorry. If someone is braver than I am and wants to try this, let me know and its yours. (Value $18)

All Nature Organic Mask Sheet in Blueberry, Broccoli, Black Bean, and Houttuynia Cordata / Memebox Zero Cosmetics / hellorigby! All Nature Organic Mask Sheets in Blueberry, Black Bean, Houttuynia Cordata, and Broccoli – I kind of chuckled at the broccoli mask, because why would I put broccoli on my face? I tried the blueberry one, and it felt super cool and refreshing. It also felt very moisturizing, and I definitely can’t wait to try another next weekend. Bonus points for making Dave do a double take. ;) (Value $6)

Easydew Fresh Mild Sun Block SPF 50+ PA+++ / Memebox Zero Cosmetics / hellorigby! Easydew Fresh Mild Sun Block SPF 50+ PA+++ – I always like to see sunscreen products, as I’m always open to new and better formulas. I like this one a lot because it doesn’t turn my skin white like a lot of sunscreens, nor does it make me break out in a rash, another common issue for me and sun care products. I would definitely use this again. ($7 value)

Nature's Friend SaeHaneul Eye & Nourishing Cream / Memebox Zero Cosmetics / hellorigby! Nature’s Friend SaeHaneul Eye and Nourishing Cream – This is a super thick eye cream. I’m actually new to using eye creams, after Lissa sent me a few of her favorites from Clinique. I can’t say whether or not this works for me for sure, because I really don’t have any wrinkles or fine lines around my eyes yet. But, I figure using them is great for prevention and this feels like it will be very moisturizing. ($30 value)

Innerface Shy Blossom Soothing Serum / Memebox Zero Cosmetics / hellorigby! Innerface Shy Blossom Soothing Serum – I was thrilled to see a serum in this box! I love serums, but the last one I tried made me break out terribly and that was an epic fail. So far so good with this one – it smells a bit herbal-like, but not too strong. It contains aloe vera and lavendar oil, hyaluronic acid, evening primrose oil, and tea tree oil. I dig it. (Value $43)

Overall, I was super excited to receive this great box. I paid $17 for it after discounts and credit, and it was valued at over $110. Crazy! I hope Memebox offers another Zero Cosmetics box (or something similar), because it’s not always easy to find skin care products formulated without parabens, sulfates, and other things I’m not sure I want on my skin. If you’re interested to see what Memebox is currently offering, definitely check out their current boxes. I’m eyeing the Moisture Surge box for the coming dry winter months!

    The Bee venom Def sounds scary, but I’ve heard a ton of God things about that brand and I’ve seen them recommended in almost every Korean beauty article I’ve read. Roxy got stung by a bee last week and he gave swelled up so it makes me really leery! Haha

        I felt bad for laughing at her, but one side of her face was swollen and droopy- she looks ridiculous, and she was clearly unfazed by it, meanwhile, I was panicking. and laughing, but mostly panicking haha

    How much was the box? Haha, I’ve used a snail slime mask before, but only because it came inside of a Glossybox. The bee venom freaks me out, and I’ve also never been stung and wouldn’t want to chance it.

      $17! They were offering a $10 credit for signing up plus I think I used a coupon code for an extra $3 off. I would be okay with the snail slime, its the bee venom that makes me leery!

    seriously though wtf is with the ingredients in the Benton Snail Bee High Contrast Steam Cream?! no thank you very much. sounds like you got some fairly good things for great value but that bee stuff would freak me out. excuse me, off to put broccoli on my face…

      Haha, I know right? I mean, I’m sure it works, but it still freaks me out. Let me know how the broccoli treatment goes! ;)

    Bee venom and snail goo are actually pretty common in Korean cosmetics. Weird skincare trends, yo. If you’re worried about having an allergic reaction you can always test a small patch of it on the inside one of your arms … but I completely understand why it might be a turn-off to begin with, haha. :)

    Lol I flipped through the pictures before reading your preface so I was like: hey that’s Korean, hey that’s Korean too! :)
    Koreans are experts on skincare for sure, this sounds like a great box.

    Let me tell you how bee venom is the next big thing! haha I believe it’s supposed to help plump, but it’s not the same as actually getting stung by a bee. Plus snail goo is THE thing right now in Korea. Because snails use their “goo” to keep themselves healthy and to regenerate their cells, Korean ladies have been using it for the same! There’s actually studies where snail “goo” has been proven to improve tone, texture, wrinkles, acne, and pretty much a whole list of other things. The only catch is that you need a high content of snail “goo” to get all the great benefits. Oh, also the broccoli has vitamins that are great for your skin, so give it a try! If you’re still unsure about that bee venom/snail cream, I’m totally your girl ;-)

      I absolutely loved the broccoli mask – and all of the sheet masks they sent actually! Do you have a favorite brand of sheet masks that are easy to come by? My problem with the Memeboxes is that I had a hard time finding any of these brands anywhere, including on their site! I’m still not sure how the snail and bee venom works, but I passed it onto a friend who really wanted to try it, haha! I’ll have to try it in the future, maybe in another Memebox! ;)
