BEAUTY BOX : Memebox 5-2/ You're Kidding Me?!

Before I get into the review :
I am not a big fan of writing negative reviews on anything. In fact, I've only had a few negative reviews that I've posted on my blog before. Products seem to really work well on me, aside from those that don't.

As many of you know, Memebox has incorporated non-Korean brand into their boxes.
I'm not thrilled.
I paid for a Korean based Beauty Box, I expect to get JUST Korean Beauty Brands, some I know & some I don't.
There have been issues with notifying Memebox's customer service. 
There's really too much to even talk about, since most of you know anyway.
I am in no way bashing anyone who liked the 5-2 box. However, this wasn't my favorite box & I expect much more out of a box that I'm dishing $23 out per box ( not including the prices for the super boxes ). Not to mention how quickly they're coming out with boxes. A subscription service would suffice.

Now, onto the contents of Memebox 5-2 & their reviews :

As usual, the items come in a rather sturdy, pink box, when opened shows the informtion card right on top. This box was packed with products.

We received 10 products this month.

Derma:B Daily Moisture Lotion

I'm not much of a lotion user, & I know this is a repeat product. It seems to be a fairly good product, even though I haven't used it yet.

Nuganic Customize Pore Control Essence

I like the last Nuganic product I received, so I know either myself or my mom will like this. I haven't used this yet.

CNP Labratory Cleansing Perfecta

I like getting new facial washes, especially since the sulfur soap I received in my 4th Memebox really dried my skin out. I haven't tried this yet.

Aromatic Tasteless Aroma Therapy Roll On

Patchouli? No... I cannot with this roll on, I will puke. Giving this to my nanny.

Liposonze Body Ampoule

I'm not using this either. I don't know where this came from. It looks like a sample you'd get from your doctor & I don't wanna use this on myself. Gave this to my mom.

Panier des Sens Liquid Marseille Soap

I enjoy rose scented products. Use for both face & body. I like this but haven't used it yet.

L'oreal Paris Shin Caresse Gloss Tint

I'm well aware this isn't a Korean product.. in fact, I could run to my nearest drug store & pink this up. I do like the color though. I received it in the shade Juliette.

Physiogel Pouch Sample Mix

Samples I don't plan on using. I also gave these to my mom.

Dear Jane Primer & Shimmer Bomb Samples

I wish they would have sent bigger samples, or more samples, of this. I'm very curious to try.

Leaders CC Cream & UV Moist Sun Gel Samples

I also decided to give these to my mother.

As you can see, I haven't used not one of these products.
I really hope Memebox steps up their game the next few boxes, but I'm hearing a lot about how they still will be incorporating non-Korean brands even after this box. I may not buy any other boxes, & I've bought up to Superbox #2.

In conclusion, this box was a flop & that's really all I have to say.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.



  1. Not the best box ever. The funny part is that the L'Oréal tint seems to be the most interesting product to me.

    1. Not the best box at all. The tint is really interesting, but if I wanted that, I could easily find it. I wanted things I can't find in a store where I live, LOL.

      Thanks for reading <3

  2. I wouldn't have liked this box if I had ordered it, either. They should've realized that they got THIS popular because people were crazy about Korean products... and not some non-korean stuff you can get at the nearest drugstore (or birch box, or whatever). Bah... now I'm a bit scared ordering from Memebox, now that I know it won't be amazing like before! D:

    1. That's exactly the point. They're popular for bringing Korean products to those who can't get them on the regular, so they should stick to what they started. I would be wary, too, but the 6th box is supposed to just include Korean products, so we'll see how that goes.

      Thanks for reading June! <3

  3. This box was so weak. I'm still eyeing the Paypal claim window...I bought mine on Feb 1 so I've got til like March 9th......

    I looked it up, and even the regular box 5 people got 5 non Korean products lol.

    1. It all just boils down to the fact that Memebox needs to stick to what they started with. They are Korean, not American, or French, etc. Hopefully the 6th will help them come back from the depths of hell.

      Thanks for reading Tiff <3

  4. I used to envy anyone with memebox but this memebox I don't see any products that make me go like omg I want!!!! Haha yeah this box looks like a flop compared their past boxes :/ hope they'll improve

  5. Thank god I didn't buy this one! I'm not impressed with box #5 either, let alone #5-2. The Lipozone Body Ampoule kind of scares me a bit and makes me scoff at the same time. I've never believed in fat burning creams, food, etc. and I probably never will. Sad to say that the only product I'm interested in is the Nuganics Pore Control Essence. I've only ordered box 4 and 7 so far, and if by 7 they haven't gotten any better than I'm probably not going to buy any more. :/

  6. So sad... I saw the other ones were much better and so I ordered mine and will arrive soon... I hope it will be something better <3
