The Meme Box – Korean beauty samples and a goodie box rolled into one

A Meme box is a type of goodie/sample box you may not have heard of yet – but trust me, you want to know about it!The Korean website is not only an awesome online beauty store to get all your favourite Korean brand products but also a sample box provider. Each month they have a huge selection of boxes which you can sign up for – ranging from skin care to make up, hair products to colour themed boxes, there is definitely a type of box for everyone, even the boys! Better yet you can just buy a box whenever you want – there’s no monthly sign up or anything like that, but you can also buy value packs and there’s discounts sometimes when you buy more then one at a time. It’s important to note that the nature of the boxes is that it’s a surprise of what you will get. Sometimes depending on the box you get clues – e.g. the theme of the box or a hint sentence or picture of one of the products. Meme Box promises that they will curate your box with products which give you a Korean beauty experience with high quality products. There are actually three different types of boxes too, so you might want to utilise that bulk buy feature.

♥ Meme Box – the original pack: comes with 4 – 8 full sized products and       deluxe samples.

♥ Super Box: made for Meme Box lovers wanting full sized products which    are themed or catered to specific needs.

♥ Lucky Box: Brings back the most popular items from previously sold out  Meme Boxes

And yes… they ship to NZ! Depending on the type of box it’s either free or for a small fee.

Below are the two Meme Boxes I have purchased so far – yup even my boyf got involved!



My first Meme Box is the one of the left (haha if the bright pink isn’t enough to let you know). It is a Mini #3 box and cost me $15.00 with free shipping. As a Mini Meme Box it was advertised as containing 3-6 beauty products based on skin care, and this is what I got inside.

memebox_mini3_unboxing_2 So in total I got 5 different products in this box:

  1. llli Cleansing Oil and Foam Set – 1 15ml set and three pouch samples
  2. Real Black Tea True Active Essence – 200ml bottle
  3. Darjeeling First Anti-wrinkle Cream – 20ml
  4. Darjeeling Black Tea First Anti-wrinkle Essence 10g pouches
  5. True Verveine Menthe Tea bags

Although this box doesn’t really suit my specific skin needs, I have tested a few of the products so far and really like them. I was really impressed with the amount of products I got, how the products were packaged and also I though the tea was a really cute touch. Also I’m going to use the super cool tin which some of the products came in as a brush holder.

My boyf’s Meme Box was called Meme Box For Him2. His was a bit more expensive but included full size products. He received 7 products in total – 4 of them were full size and the rest deluxe samples, these included an after shave, a peeling gel, a hair styling water-spray, a pore control essence, a CC Cream and some face masks. He’s tested them all and although some are definitely not his thing, he uses a few of the products and really likes the idea of the Meme Box and being able to try out new stuff.

I personally highly recommend Meme Boxes if you are a lover of Korean beauty products or are just keen to try out a few new things. The service is quick, easy and trustworthy and the boxes I feel are really great value for money! I get much better value with these boxes then other NZ goodie/ subscription boxes I have tried. I am now looking at ordering maybe another Mini Box, maybe some themed boxes and I really want to try a Lucky Box next to get the real best seller products.

  • I’ve been hearing so much about these, very keen to get one as I haven’t tried any Korean makeup/skincare before!

    • I would definitely recommend giving one a try then, even if you just get a mini box first to see if you like it! It’s such a great way to try out Korean beauty products and all the boxes are just so cute and fun!

  • These look so cool! I’ve never tried Korean products but I see so much about them on blogs that I feel like that should change.

    • It’s definitely a good way to go to give some different brands or products a try. I’d also recommend checking out (I wrote a haul post about this site if you pop it into the search bar on my home page) – they sell little sample sets of their best selling products for super cheap prices which is another good way to try out some new Korean beauty products!

    Question – Are these products tested on animals?

    • It would depend on what brand you were receiving in your Meme Box as to whether it would be cruelty free or not. I would suggest when your looking at the boxes to Google the brand it’s based on to see if it is tested on animals or not – as a whole though I don’t think it is a cruelty free company unfortunately (if that makes sense)

    Oh these boxes are just so darn cute! Been meaning to try Korean beauty products, and might just make the jump with the memeboxes! Do you have a review of Vain Pursuits? I’d love to read what you have to say… my girlfriends are all talking about it.

    • So cute right! That’s half the reason I get them to be honest! No, I haven’t heard of Vain Pursuits, but I am totally looking it up right now! =)
