Review: Memebox #39 Cafe

20141028-104940-38980238.jpg

I know, I know. I clearly have a problem. I feel like all I review at this point are MemeBoxes but they are that good. The value is amazing and I love the fact that it is usually full size products. I have come to love Korean skincare since I discovered Memebox.

Memebox is a Korean company that sells boxes curated based on a theme. Their new boxes are typically released on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week and for the price you cannot find a better value anywhere else!

Sorry my pictures are so crappy! Anyway, I love themes like this. Chocolate, cafe . . . scent based boxes like that will always sucker me in. I loved that this box wasn’t just coffee scented products, but just scents you would find in a coffee shop or cafe. So many possibilities!

Cleomee Anti Wrinkle Donkey Lotion, retail value $83.

This is obviously the big ticket item in the box. It is a rich lotion containing donkey’s milk which, according to the info card, “far exceeds cow’s milk and even goat’s milk in its similarity to mother’s breast milk, and is also highly prized to have been the secret to Cleopatra’s unfailing beauty and skincare”. Interesting. I do believe in the healing properties of breast milk, so this definitely caught my eye. I am a horrible lotion user though. I just never remember to apply it. So I’m unsure I would actually use this. I also think it is interesting that this can be used both as a face and a body lotion.

Binu Cook Ice Cream Scoop Cacao Body Soap, retail value $3.

This does look like an ice cream scoop if you know what you’re looking for. Otherwise it kind of looks like poop. It smells great though. I don’t use bar soap though so this will be gifted.

Pure Smile Mask Sheet, retail value $1.

There were two variations of this sent out. I got the the green tea version. As far as sheet masks go, I really liked it. It felt like a great quality and the essence it left behind felt great. I did it before bed and rubbed the essence in afterward. My skin felt nice and soft the next morning.

Tonymoly Latte Art Cappucino Cream-In-Scrub, retail value $13.

I had really hoped to have this in the box so I was excited when I saw it. This is a face scrub with milk protein, caffeine and coffee extracts that cleanses and firms the skin. It feels very hydrating and soothing and actually not very scrubby at all. My only complaint is the smell. It is so strongly of coffee, like I am sticking my nose in a bag of coffee beans. Just a little too strong for me.

Holika Holika Dessert Lip Balm, retail value $6.

There were three variations of this sent out. I got Peach Cupcake, which smells exactly like you would expect. It’s nothing too exciting but it gives a nice pink color and leaves lips moisturized too.

Vella Fresh Creamy Soap, retail value $13.

I love cleansers like this. The packaging is adorable and the scent is sweet, like vanilla. I wish it were stronger though! I keep smelling it and it is so faint. I need to get through some of my other cleansers before I try this. It says it can be used with a bubble net. I have no idea what that is.

Overall, I absolutely loved this box. Even though there were a few products I won’t use, I think Memebox did a great job following the theme of the box and I liked that they included a wide range of products.

Did you get cafe box? What are your thoughts?
