Then to my delight I saw this box had restocked!
The Intro to Korean Beauty #beginwithskin box $39 claims to a $71 dollar value.
So before I go any further I think you all want to know is the box worth the value?
Skinfood Black Sugar Cleansing Oil (item not available for purchase by itself on Memebox)
It's Skin Cleansing Foam (item not available for purchase by itself on Memebox), only the eggshell one which is $5. I have previously seen the Skin Cleansing Foams in other scents for $5 at Membox before.
Goodal Phytorain Murumuru Seed Hydra Serum $29 on Memebox
Tony Moly Bunny Mist (for dry skin) listed as $15 on Memebox (they have a mist for oily skin too, but I have seen that the oil skin one usually goes for cheaper than than the dry skin one.)
If we compare to the price Memebox sells its items for, the price is worth it because the Goodal Serum and Bunny mist is $44 combined. But how does the prices measure up to other vendors?
I do not include ebay prices.
Skinfood Black Sugar Cleansing Oil $14.23 on amazon
It's Skin Cleansing Foam $13 on amazon (this one is tricky because I have seen it for only $5 at Membox before, but product is no longer available it seems).
Goodal Phytorain Murumuru Seed Hydra Serum $27.99 on Amazon (hard to find not a lot of vendors carry this item)
Tony Moly Bunny Mist (for dry skin) $14 at Urban Outfitters (assuming you purchase in person at the store, otherwise the item goes for $16 and up when you include shipping from other vendors) I believe you can also get it at the Tony Moly store in chinatown nyc for I believe 12 or 13 dollars. However, I don't think most of America is fortunate enough to have access to a TonyMoly store.
So adding up all these prices the value is $69. Yes the box is totally worth the value! Keep in mind that buying products separately is more expensive in general because of the shipping cost added per product.
Why did I purchase this box?
I had heard great things about this box and only the face cleanser contained paraben (which I am hoping is small enough quantities so I can still use it). If not Memebox has a great return policy. They also give you a repaid label to return items at not costs to you!
Anyway I messaged Gwen asking her to cancel the 1st box, about 24 hours of me ordering it. I received no reply, only to find out as of today it was shipped. Ouch, big dent in my wallet as both boxes will be coming in.
I decided since it will come in anyway I will give the products a try and hopefully I will not have any bad reactions.
Box #2 the begin with skin box has arrived today!
It came with a FREE Meme Mask!!! Who doesn't love freebies.
It also includes this neat card which tells you how to use the product.
My only gripe is that not everything had the ingredients listed. I have no idea what ingredients are in the bunny spray. I will go do some research and hope that I am not allergic.
Looking forward to giving you a review of these items and also items I had previously received. Many times I find I have to use an item for a while to be able to give a more complete and accurate review. I hope this information was helpful to readers and good luck!
