Memebox Foot Therapy Review and Unboxing

I don't know what it is about the "foot" memeboxes, but I always want them. There's something about the promise of peeling foot masks, foot scrubs and lotions that is just irresistible. I have enough skincare to last me for the next decade, so whenever a box comes out that is more for a specific part of the body, I immediately want to jump on it. I was hoping that the Foot Therapy box would be filled with so much awesomeness that I would actually take care of my feet during the Winter, instead of ignoring them and letting them go until the Summer. I am totally on board with having crazy-soft feet year-round. Let's make it happen, Memebox!

(product info card tells you more information and how to use each product)
 
 If you're new to Memebox, they are a website that sells Korean beauty products, but their most popular items are of course, the Memeboxes. These boxes are full of deluxe samples and full size Korean beauty products and are delivered to you all the way from Korea. Memebox has been kind enough to create a FAQs page that you can view HERE if you want more info on the boxes, as there are many to choose from!

This particular box is one of their superboxes, which contain all full size products.
  "Foot Therapy" cost $23 plus $6.99 shipping, and featured 8 items.
  
From Memebox:
The cold season arrives with comfy sweaters, camel-colored trench coats, beautiful autumn trees and snug boots, but with all these Fall and Winter delights comes dehydrated feet and cracked soles! Our feet are affected by the cold weather harshness as we let our foot care routine lapse during the colder months, just by bundling them up with fluffy socks and snuggly boots Feet become calloused, rough, and dry. Drench feet with skin-loving foot therapy products that will get your feet baby-smooth and totally renewed.

TonyMoly: Foot Scrub Wash
(Full Size Product: $7) 
My first response to seeing this product in my box was:
I love foot scrubs. They're so relaxing and when used regularly, really make a difference in the amount of dry skin I get on my feet. This scrubs is formulated with peppermint and lavender extracts, which makes it smell SO GOOD. It also contains argan oil and urea complex. Urea is actually a chemical compound found in urine, but no worries: the urea used in skincare products is made artificially. It's included in moisturizers and foot products because it attracts water to the skin to keep it moisturized. This scrub can be used to gently buff away dead skin cells as well as soothe, moisturize and refresh the feet. I haven't tried this yet because I've been so crazy-busy this week, but I cannot wait to have a day off and just pamper the hell out of my feet with all the goodies in this box.

Lassha: New Cool Foot
(Full Size Product: $18) 
There was a cooling spray in the previous foot care box as well, but it was very tiny and looked a lot cheaper than this one here. These work as a way to freshen, deodorize and moisturize the feet. You can also mist this onto socks and into shoes to keep them fresh. I don't really have many issues with stinky feet, but I think this will be a nice product to have on hand when the weather gets warmer. Although now that I think of it, I might just go and douse my fiance's work boots with this stuff considering those things stink to high heaven, haha!

Purederm: Callous Reducer Heel Patches in "Jojoba"
(Full Size Product/4 Patches: $14) 
Purederm is a low-priced brand, however I have always had great experiences with the things I've received from them. I was very happy to see these Callus Reducer patches because I don't have anything like this currently in my collection of skincare goodies. These are an intensive conditioning patch that moisturizes, soothes and repairs dry, cracked heels. It contains jojoba, eucalyptus and tea tree oil, which penetrate deep into the skin, while cocoa butter forms a moisture shield over the skin to protect it from further damage.
When I first read "4 patches" I assumed there were 4 sets of patches in this box. Unfortunately there are only 2. While Purederm is usually well-priced, I thought $14 for 2 applications was a bit much. Regardless, I couldn't wait to try these out! I applied them last night, and I found that the process was very easy. You simply open up the package and peel the white back off the patch and place it on your heel. Fold the bottom half down over the bottom of the heel, and the the top half is folded around the back of your heel. (see photo on the box). You wear these overnight and remove them in the morning. I found that these stuck to my skin very well and didn't budge while I slept. When I woke up and removed them, you could see a visible difference on the skin where I wore the patches. My heels were much softer and definitely more moisturized. I was very impressed with my first experience with these, so I'm looking forward to getting more and continuing use of these through the summer months as well.

Holika Holika: Silky Baby Foot Mask
(Full Size Product: $3)
I received this foot mask in in the Beauteque Head to Toe Spa Bag not too long ago, and I really loved it. This is not a peeling foot mask, but a moisturizing one. It nourishes, cools and refreshes the skin on your feet with a blend of shea butter, urea, peppermint and aloe vera. These are little plastic "socks" that you place on your feet and leave on for 15-20 minutes, although I like to leave them on for extra time so that I can get the full benefit of the product. I will usually pop these on and watch an episode of Gilmore Girls, then take them off and massage in the leftover essence. I prefer these to peeling masks because while they soften your feet nicely, there isn't the whole after effect of endless skin falling off your feet for a week straight.

Mizon: Magic Peeling Foot Mask
(Full Size Product: $11) 
Speaking of skin falling off your feet, there's also a Mizon foot peeling mask included in this box! These are similar to the moisturizing masks in that they have the plastic-sock-application method, however they are worn for 1-2 hours. Once these are removed, it's also recommended that you wash your feet rather than patting in the remaining essence. The peeling "magic" usually doesn't start for 3-4 days, however there have been peeling masks I've used in the past that take up to a week to start working. These all vary in how effective they are, as I've used ones that have peeled skin off my feet for 2 weeks straight, and others that merely peel a few bits of dry skin. I love Mizon and I think they have fantastic products, so I am hopeful these will be effective. I'm not a huge fan of these masks overall due to the mess they create, but they're a necessary evil since they do so well at exfoliating!

Holika Holika: Healing Nails Cuticle Oil
(Full Size Product: $2) 
I have a lot of cuticle oil, but I never really thought to use it on my toenails! This one from Holika Holika has a sweet, lemony scent to it, and it is packed with various plant oils that deliver moisture and nutrition to the nails while also soothing dead skin cells. I think this cuticle oil is nice enough, but I have enough handbag holiday cuticle oil from butter LONDON to last me a lifetime, so I'll be gifting this to a friend.

Calmia: Silky Soft Foot Cream
(Full Size Product: $18)
What kind of box would this be without a foot cream? This one is enriched with shea butter and macadamia oil which soothe and repair the skin. It softens the feet while repairing and protecting the skin from further damage or dehydration. I haven't actually had the chance to open this up and give it a whirl yet, but I absolutely love foot creams. They're always a bit thicker and more rich than a typical lotion, so I can't wait to pamper myself with this at the end of this long week!

With Shyan: Professional Foot File Remover
(Full Size Product: $9)
I know, I know, it's a stock photo! For some reason, I cannot for the life of me figure out where I put this foot file! I swear an elf with foot fetish ran off with it, because I have searched high and low and I'm convinced it has vanished. More likely, it's buried under the piles of yarn that are currently all over my floor in preparation for holiday gift knitting, but still. I'm going with foot fetish elf for now.
This is your typical foot file that can be used along side of a peeling gel or scrub, and is used to exfoliate dead skin cells and remove hardened calluses from the feet. I'm really hoping I can find this, because I've heard from a few people that it's a pretty fantastic file!

Overall Thoughts
This box cost $23 +$6.99 shipping, and had a total value of $82. While the value is a bit lower than usual when it comes to a typical Memebox, I am incredibly pleased with with everything that was included! First of all, 8 products is quite a lot for Memebox, and I'm glad they included a lot of mid-priced items so that I can repurchase them if I like them enough. I also love that many of the brands featured in this box are well-known and easily available. The curation is also spot on. You can have an entire pampering session with this box! I think this really hit the nail on the head, and it's refreshing to see considering Memebox has had some trouble with curation recently. I wish I had picked up more than one of these boxes, because I think it would be a really fantastic box to gift for the holidays. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this box, and I'm already planning my foot-themed spa night for this weekend!

  2. Thank you for your review! I heard good things about this box and bought it when it restocked as a Christmas present for my mother. Glad I did! Thanks to you, I can now explain how to use each product, and the results (cos the cards aren't always clear). As an 'extra', I think I'll offer myself and my kids as her foot masseurs with the creams :-)

    I only hope the box actually reaches me; I can't track it at the moment, and the last time this happened, the box was delivered to someone else :-(

    Thanks again, and I hope you have a great feet pampering session!

    1. You're very welcome! I'm so glad my review could help you out with your gift! ;) I think your mother is going to LOVE this box! I really wish I had picked up the restock when I had the chance because it really makes a great gift.

      I think a few people are having issues with their boxes floating around, but I'm crossing my fingers that yours arrives soon!! :)

    1. Right?! I always get them because they're practical boxes, and as fun as the fancy skincare is, sometimes I realize that my hands/feet/hair need pampering too! I was so surprised at how packed with goodies this one was. Really thrilled with it, and I will most likely buy the next one they release as well! ;)

  4. I am new to Memebox. I have been watching the website (as well as your blog!) for a few months now and I have ordered a couple of boxes. Is there something up with Memebox, or do they go through periods were they offer fewer boxes? It seems like there were new ones every M,W,F for a while and now there are very slim pickings!

    1. Hi Summer! Thanks so much for reading, and welcome to the meme-addiction! ;) It's kind of an interesting situation with memebox at the moment. While they used to release boxes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, they are currently trying to get rid of the extra stock of boxes they had left over, and from my understanding, are now only releasing boxes on Fridays unless it's a special edition box. I'm not sure if this will be a permanent thing, or temporary, but as of now, I would keep a look out for boxes to be released on Fridays for the time being. :) I wish it wasn't so slow though! I miss having all those boxes to choose from!

    1. I know I'm obsessed with them...I just wish they weren't $10 a box on ebay. Hopefully they'll make these available in the US shop for a lower price and I can scoop some up!

  8. Tocca Massage Therapy Toronto continues to grow for lots of reasons, not least of which is its talented, professional, certified staff. In addition, Ashley says that Tocca Massage Therapy now fills more appointments than it did before Bookeo, which gives her a real edge over competitive studios still taking bookings by phone or using inferior online booking platforms.
