Memebox Birthday Box

 I am overflowing with memeboxes, guys. I have them stacked to the rafters. I open a drawer and there's pink boxes poking out in every direction. While this is probably one of the most awesome things to be overwhelmed with, it does mean I have to bang out a chunk of Memebox reviews all at once. I can't help it- I'm addicted! If you love Memebox, that can be a good thing! But for those of you waiting on some, well, variety- I promise it's on it's way!
Memebox was wonderful enough to send me this box for review, and as lovely as it is- I'm still trying to figure out why it's called the Birthday Box! This box was shipped out in early July, so while it's not available for purchase anymore, it will give you a nice idea of what Memebox has to offer!
From the Memebox site:
Give the gift of gorgeous for any occasion this July with Memebox’s Birthday Box! Packed with only the cutest and most charming goodies, this Birthday Box will perfectly pamper your favorite gal pals from head to toe! This premium brand features only the most high-quality total spa care products that is suitable for all ages, and for a limited time, it's up for an exclusive deal only at Memebox! So, don’t miss this limited-time only chance to truly show appreciation for all the favorite women in your life!
 I think the Birthday Box was created so that you could give it to your girlfriends for their special day, which is the only thing I can think of that makes it a Birthday Box. But enough about my confusion with the name- let's get into the goodies!

 (product info card tells you more information and how to use each product!)
 If you're new to Memebox, they are a great website that sells Korean Beauty products, but their most popular items are of course, the Memeboxes. These boxes are full of deluxe sample and full size Korean beauty products and are delivered direct from Korea. I usually take the time to explain a bit further, but Memebox has been kind enough to create a FAQs page that you can view HERE if you want more info!
This particular box is one of their Superboxes, which contain all full size products, and are usually curated around a specific theme or brand. The Birthday Box cost $29 plus $6.99 shipping. This box was revealed prior to purchase on the site, so you could take a look at the items in side and decide whether or not you were interested.

1. i belivyu: Flower Hand Creams
(Full Size Product: $36) 
 These little flower hand lotions come in a set, and contain vitamin E, shea butter, argan oil, organic plant extract and flower extracts that differ depending on the scent of the lotion. The set includes Rose, Sunflower, Lavendar and Safflower. While I find these lotions absolutely adorable, I'm not a big fan of floral scents in lotions, so I will be passing these on to my gal pals- which is kind of what the box intended for anyway, so we're all good there!

2. i belivyu: All-in-One Hair and Body Wash
(Full Size Product: $14) 
As amazing as Korean skincare is, I love me some Korean haircare! I can't tell you how much my hair has improved since I started getting Memeboxes! This is a hair and body wash in one, and contains apricot, carrot, green tea, chamomile, rosemary and a bunch of other fancy things that I can't pronounce. These kinds of 2-in-1 products are great when you have a tiny shower and need to save space, or if you're going on vacation and want to pack lightly. Since I have a claw foot tub, and only one tiny shelf on the wall for all of my things (and for the 2 other people that live with me) these kinds of products work really well as space-savers. The cleanser is creamy and smells absolutely divine! Very excited to try this out!

3. i believyu: Cube Sparkling Lemon Sugar Scrub
(Full Size Product $24)
The packaging. SO chic! At first glace I thought these were those little bath bombs that you toss into your bath water, but they're actually individually-sized sugar scrubs! I love me a good scrub, as the skin on my body gets super dry- even in summer! These are filled with various vitamins and minerals, as well as baking soda, which help to get rid of dead skin and blackheads and other pore-clogging nonsense. It says they are lemon-scented, but I would describe it more a a lemon-floral. It's very nice! 
You can use these on your face AND body, not to mention it can also be put in your bath water like a bath bomb. You simply get the amount of cubes you need, wet and crush them up in a towel or in your hands. Memebox suggests using 1 cube for your face, 2-3 for your body and 4-5 for a bath. There aren't that many in a tube, so I'd probably avoid using them in a bath if you want them to last!

4. i believyu: Powder Wash Vitamin Face Cleanser
(Full Size Product: $24) 
This is another product that had me fooled. After I oohed and ahhed over the pretty packaging, I quickly assumed that these were bath salts. However, this is actually a pretty unique product! This is a powder-type facial cleanser that gently exfoliates, and nourishes your skin with macadamia and olive oils. You use them by sprinkling a dime-sized amount into your hands, wet it and massage onto your face to create a lather. I haven't tried this out yet since I'm finishing up a different cleanser, but I can't wait to give this a go!

 In case you didn't notice during the review, every single product in the Birthday Box is made by a company called, "i believyu." While I'm curious as to why they didn't just call this box the "i believyu Box" as they have with brand-specific boxes in the past, I've got to say I was very happy with this box! The total value of the Memebox Birthday Box is: $98, which I think is a fantastic value. The contents of this box really do work well as a gift for your close girl friends. The curation makes for a night of pampering, and the products are great for a Korean beauty beginner!
