Memebox Special #31 Earth & Sea Cosmetics - Review and Unboxing

I think I have established by now that I have a slight obsession with Memebox. I just have been loving the products I receive and I have honestly changed my whole beauty routine (full post coming soon) from everything I have gotten. So, sorry if there is a few too many Memebox posts but there will be more coming because I can't stop buying them!

Memebox is a Korean Beauty Box company. Memebox is not a monthly subscription box - they instead have a ton you can choose from ranging in price from $15 and up. The boxes have different themes and their are limited quantities (from what it looks they, they are very popular and the boxes sell out quickly!) 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 any where from 10-20 business days) and they ship worldwide!

The Earth & Sea Cosmetics box came out in late July and shipping in early September. (This was only the second box I ordered so I feel like I have been waiting forever - but when you order Memeboxes look at the shipping date because they are usually about a month or so away!)

Earth & Sea Cosmetics was $29 US + $6.99 shipping. It is described as "when toxins, dirt and oil build up get under the skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, ultimately clogging up pores and making skin look dull.  So, we're bringing you nature’s clean up crew to clear the way for cleaner and brighter skin.
Charcoal, volcanic ash and mud all work together to draw out dirt and excess oil to extract stubborn impurities from deep within pores! Mineral rich marine energy works as the step 2 treatment for refining pores and replenishing moisture to the skin.
Our Earth & Sea Cosmetics Box offers the best natural ingredients  to give you your best looking skin"

Ahhh looks good - here is a closer look at the products inside:

Shara Shara Black Charcoal Mask Purifying ~ 1 single sheet $2. This is a sheet mask that has high concentration of charcoal and volcanic ash to dig deep down in your pores. I got this box really hoping for some cool masks and this is perfect. I'm excited to try this - as per the Korean skin care routine, you should be using sheet masks at least twice a week - so I love how many I'm getting in these boxes!

Secret Nature Volcanic Ash Pore Pack full size $36. Made with organic Jeju complex, volcanic ash, charcoal and green tea - works to tighten pores and control dry skin. Free of parabens, artificial fragrance. It feels so weird to put volcanic ash on your face but I loved this mask - it actually cooled right down as soon as you put it on an and it felt so refreshing!

Tosowoong Super Aqua Cooling Gel ~ full size $34. Full of minerals and nutrients from glacier water this cooling gel is to calm overheated skin and relieve irritated skin. It does cool down your skin nicely - this will be great in the summer!

Dewytree Mineral Healthy Sun Cut Loose Powder SPF36 PA++ ~ full size $34. Use as the last stage of makeup to leave your skin's moisture level even and leave a lasting silky finish. I think it's interesting that there is SPF in a powder! For now I am going to wait to try this as I have 2 loose powders on the go right now!

Elizavecca Elastic Pore Mask Cleansing Foam ~ full size $29. So this is a mask/cleanser and it is made of charcoal, collagen from pig skin and spider extracts - clearly not a product for the squeamish (or vegan?). You have to see what it looks like:

Haha - crazy, full black mask/cleanser. I'm interested in trying this product for sure - thanks to my last Memeboxes, I definitely see the skin benefits of snail extract so we will see if this one works! Also, the black is quite easy to rinse off!

Ariul Spa Water 24 Hours Moisturizing Refreshing Mist ~ full size $18. Rich in minerals and amino acids - this works to give you instant replenishment any time during the day or you can use it as you first step after cleansing  to create a moister barrier and keep your skin hydrated all day!

So this box was $35.99 and came with about $150 worth of products. (Some people complain Memebox inflates their prices but I think its always about the same and we never include shipping cost just looking at websites so for me they are close enough!). 

Memeboxes always come with such a good value and everything in this one was full size. The only thing I was unsure if I was going to use is the refreshing spray but I may give it a try and see if I like it! 

Alright, now you waited through this whole post, use Coupon Code IXM5 to get $5 off any Memebox purchase! Seriously there is some gooders out right now and keep checking back their website, they are always releasing new boxes! I am waiting for 2 princess boxes and the Tony Moly box!

    1. Weird your comment was removed - I was just reading it! hope you found some of the explanation helpful - I like giving a little detail about each product (what I can) instead of just photos!

  2. I just ordered one, they actually ship to Sweden! How exciting! I used your link, but for some reason the coupon code above didn't work (there's a time limit on it maybe?). Either way, I'm pumped to get it! Only a month to wait... :)

    1. Yay!!! I'm love these ones - which one did you order?? Yes the codes are only for 1 month so I haven't posted October's yet! (sorry!)
