This box is a grim reminder that Korea and I have very different views when it comes to cute…
So the My Cute Wishlist series, it grew to tremendous fame literally overnight with it’s first iteration selling out in an hour or less, which then spawned the much less successful My Cute Wishlist 2, then this version, and it’s 4th version, and the multitude of spin offs. Basically Memebox learned one thing, cute sells. One thing Memebox hasn’t learned is that everyone has a different definition of cute, and so far, nothing has topped the first Cute Wishlist.
I am a sucker for the cute boxes because I love novelty items. Seriously, an item can be complete and utter crap but if it’s cute that somehow validates it. This box ventured way more into the “THIS IS DAMN CREEPY” range though, with one.. particular item.
Each box comes with an info card. If you’re a repeat reader, let’s just pretend these photos were always here.
TonyMoly Red Cheeks Girl’s Patch
This is literally a hydrating patch you place on your cheeks if they’re dry, and it’s intended to deliver intense hydration. It’s… kinda cute, I guess. I don’t dislike it but I’ve never had any sort of issue with cheek dehydration so this will also probably never be used.
Hope Girl Tinted Lip Balm – Hot Cherry
Womp womp… repeat item. I can’t for the life of me remember what box I got this in previously (it was recent, that is literally all I remember), but yeah. It smells like strawberry poptarts. I wouldn’t call it cute as much as I’d call it “girly.”
Shara Shara Kissing Sugar Lip Scrub
I know so many people are getting sick of Shara Shara products, they’re constantly in Memebox. This smells deliciously of brown sugar, and feels soothing. This is … sorta cute.
Youngwoosa Oh! It’s Love and Soft Cream
I kinda find this to be much more creepy than cute… it smells like any other hydrating cream, and it’s soothing. Idk, it’s okay not spectacular and there are definitely better creams out there. There are also less creepy creams out there.
ddung Family Foam Cleansing Cream
Is it cute? Yeah. I think so. I do not like this item otherwise though, it’s just… a sticky mess, it’s a thick cream that feels like you need to both apply and scrape it off with a spatula. Just no.
Was this as successful as other Memeboxes? I’d say it’s about average. It’s a perfectly fine Memebox though it’s not nearly as successful as it’s cute wishlist predecessors, or cute box predecessors in general. Parts of this were cute, parts of it were super ridiculously creepy, and parts were just “You’re not even trying.”
Either way I still ordered about 4 other boxes in the “cute” category because I have zero self-control when it comes to Memebox.
Welp, if interested Memebox is a series of themed K-Beauty boxes that are sourced and shipped directly from Korea. We post every new box plus coupon codes here for easy access. They often sell boxes months in advance so there is a bit of a waiting game when it comes to Memebox.
Beeju paid for this box. All opinions are my own.
