Memebox #76 The Empress's Secrets - Review + December coupon codes

Memebox is a Korean Beauty Box company - it is not a monthly subscription box - they instead have a ton you can choose from ranging in price from $15 and up - usually between $23 and $29. (It might be better for me if it was a subscription box because I buy more than 1 per month!!!)

All the boxes have different themes and they are limited quantities and sell out quickly - so if you see one you like, don't hesitate! The boxes come with 4-8 full size and deluxe sample size items & they usually show you 1 spoiler from the box and the rest are all surprises! Shipping to Canada is $6.99 (shipping does take anywhere from 10-20 business days) and they ship worldwide!

The Empress's Secrets was $23 + $6.95 shipping to Canada. The box was described as:

Queens in ancient Korea used a chock full of nature’s most precious ingredients to beautify and enhance their natural beauty. Various ancient herbs, oriental medicines, flowers, rice powders and more natural and effective recipes were prized among the royalty, and their effectiveness and potency is still prevalent today. 

Designed to enhance the skin’s regeneration, revitalization, anti-inflammation, and hydration functions, this royal box will surely leave you with a beautiful and enchanting glow. Unbox The Empress's Secrets box to reveal the mystical beauty secrets and solutions  of the east! 

And here is a look at the Empress's Secrets:

What I really like about Memeboxes is their very detailed product cards! For those of us newer to Korean beauty products, it can be a little hard to figure out what everything is for!


Here is a closer look at the products:

Lime Nature Double Very Moisturizing Cream ~ full size $39. Lime Nature's Double Very Moisturizing Cream is enriched with acai berry complex and a rich blend of ancient medicinal herbs such as chuanxiong rhizome, peony, licorice root, kudzu root, portulaca and cornflower. This gentle, hydrating formula extracted straight from the nature delivers rich moisture and nutrients deep down into the skin, locking it in for lasting suppleness and radiance. 
This smells so interesting - quite floral and fresh smelling. I have been really enjoying the gel-ish moisturizers I been getting in Memeboxes! I like this one!



Daltokki Facial Scrub ~ full size $30. This facial scrub is made from the Korean glutinous rice cake - known to be rich in various vitamins and nutrients - and it works to smooth out and clarify the skin by exfoliating dead skin cells and dry, flaky patches. It's sticky, cheesy formula is not only fun to play with but also rejuvenating and nourishing to the skin. The natural rice cake grains gently exfoliate without any stimulation and and is suitable for all skin types and ages. 
First off, how terrifying and hilarious is the human bunny that is their trademark? Second, what a cool product! It is a weird consistency but I love that it is a rice base! I am looking forward to using this - another good product for me. 




Tosowoong Syn-ake Wrinkle Free Essence ~ full size $30. Firm up and fill in the fine wrinkles, and maintain a healthy moisture and oil balance with this wrinkle care essence. The Tosowoong Syn-ake skin care series is formulated with syn-ake complex - a kind of peptide carrying similar constituents to snake venom - EGF, galactomyces ferments, and bifida ferments. This all natural formula instantly alleviates sensitive, stimulated skin and rejuvenates and strengthens dry, dulled skin.
While wrinkles aren't a huge concern for me yet, I have been loving the Tosowoong Syn-ake Moisturizer I received, so I'm thinking their essence will be just as good! The products are very moisturizing - another good product for me!



Soy BIO+ Fermented Lumpoule ~ 5 ml x 2 $24.86 (full size is 14 for $174). "Lumpoule" is a combination of two words - 'lump' and 'ampoule' - and is basically a facial ampoule made from 100% Korean fermented soy bean lump. It'll work to prevent formation of fine lines and wrinkles and also brighten up the overall complexion. 
I have been loving the addition of ampoule to my skin care routine - and this one has appeared in 2 past Memeboxes (none that I have received before) and it is highly reviewed! I am looking forward to using this product!! 

Purderm Make-up Cleansing Tissue ~ full size 30each for $6. Easy to carry around, disposable cleansing tissues enriched with nutrients from one of the most beloved herbs in the Eastern world - green tea leaf. It's nature-friendly formula is gentle to all skin types and it effectively wipes away all traces of makeup residue and skin impurities.
I love make-up remover as my first stage of my nightly skin routine - I tried these last night and they work great! 

Overall, this was a really great box for me - I really like all of the products! There were 5 items with a total value of $129.86! This is a great value and there was a good variety of skin care products!
