Memebox – OMG3 Review

The OMG series was a series of Memeboxes that debuted alongside the My Cute Wishlist and K-Style boxes. These are products intended to make you “OMG” at the sight, reaction or overall premise of them.

Memebox (pronounced Mi-Mi-Box) is a mystery Korean beauty box, filled with all different types of Korean beauty goodies, and usually centered around a theme. The OMG boxes are meant to be really out there as far as beauty regimes go, and I’d say that’s pretty accurate in terms of these types of boxes.

memeomgcard memecard2Each box comes with an info card, front and back, that details the item and its usage. Since the items are sourced directly from Korea they may not always be in English.

memesoap1. On the Body Makgeolli Soap
Product Description
Makgeolli is a milky white rice wine made from fermented rice, wheat, and water, and it has been the oldest alcoholic beverage in Korea (from the 10th Century). With the rising interest in “well-being” food or beverage in Korea recently, makgeolli has become a trend among the younger generations. Its health and beauty benefits come from the fact that it’s unfiltered which means it contains the lactic acid, fiber, vitamins, and the good bacteria also found in yogurt. 

How to use
After cleansing face with lukewarm water 2~3 times, gently roll the soap bar with your hands onto skin 7~10 times. Create foamy bubbles by lathering it well and massage into the skin, moving from the inner contour towards the outer contour of your face. Then, softly pat all over your face 5~10 times to make sure the Makgeolli ferments soak deep into the skin. Rinse off to finish the cleansing routine. 

Review
I actually really like this as a cleansing bar, it lathers well but it has a bit of an odd scent that I’m not crazy about. I think it’s the rice extracts. I’m not too sure what’s OMG about this to be honest, unless its just the ingredients. Overall it’s a lovely cleansing bar!

memedonkeymilk2. Cleomee Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist
Product Description
This Three-Layer Perfume Donkey Oil Mist is a fragrant triple layer milk and oil body mist that provides an instant moisture surge with its organic mix. Can you imagine saying “Give me a sec, let me spray my donkey mist!” The donkey oil is basically an all-natural EGF complex rich in various nutrients, and the donkey milk with its milky goodness far exceeds cow’s milk and even goat’s milk in its similarity to mother’s breast milk. Both the donkey oil and milk are highly prized to have been the secret to Cleopatra’s beauty regimen. 

How to use
Whenever your skin feels dehydrated, shake the bottle well to mix the 3 layers of oil together and spray it evenly from 15~20cm away from the skin. 

Review
This is actually kinda neat as far as a display item goes; it separates into three layers until its vigorously shaken and mixed. It turns to a bright green. It actually kind of burns upon application but it’s a temporary burn, and the scent isn’t “bad” but it’s not something I actively reach for. mememigabee3. Migabee Bee Venom & Honey Cream
Product Description
A bee venom cream for moisturizing your face? It may sound a bit intimidating to some, but in fact this cream – rich in bee venom, royal jelly, propolis, and honey – is actually extremely gentle and works to soften and rejuvenate the skin! Not only will it moisturize and soothe but it’ll also brighten up the complexion and treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face. 

How to use
Apply the cream evenly over your face and let it soak into your skin. It is also recommended to mix in a drop of facial oil or ampoule with the cream to be applied as an overnight pack. 

Review
They were right when they said this was intimidating, because bee venom is right up there with snail mucous in the “NOPE” section of K-Beauty for me, but I have to agree that it is a very gentle cream and is highly moisturizing. The only thing I don’t like about it is the scent, it’s a very, VERY strong scent that’s just not pleasant in the least.

memecrayon4. Tonymoly Delight Tint Crayon 06 Neon Pink
Product Description
Tonymoly presents you with the one and only Delight Tint Crayon that makes your lips glow-in-the-dark! It shows as a lovely pink under the daylight, but under the strobe lights, your lip will turn into a hot neon pink!

How to use
Softly apply the lip crayon over your upper and lower lips. Multiple applications are recommended for a full, radiant lip. 

Review
Ultra bright, ultra hydrating, and a bit waxy, this crayon is overall a nice addition to any lip collection. It glows in the dark too!

tintswatchNot too many people can pull off a color this blindingly bright, but this crayon would be perfect for a rave or a party. Plus it’s TonyMoly – love TonyMoly.

mememiracle5. Tosowoong Platinum Pore Tightening Pack
Product Description
Control oil slicks and dull skin from blackhead overload with this Platinum Pore Tightening Pack. Infused with platinum gold powder and tea tree oil, this pore tightening pack not only tightens pores, but it also gently removes all blackheads and impurities within the pores. Gentle enough for the most sensitive types of skin, yet powerful. 

How to use
Cleanse skin and pat dry with towel. Evenly distribute the contents onto face avoiding eye and mouth area and wait 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. 

Review
One of the only items in the entire box that doesn’t smell like it could implode, it’s a cleansing mask hybrid. It actually works really well and left my skin feeling as soft as a baby’s butt, but I found it a little harsh so I wouldn’t use it regularly.

memeomgallThis box really surprised me, I found quite a bit of it to be OMG worthy – especially that Cleomee Donkey Mist, that stuff was just made of crazy. The only thing I really wasn’t crazy about overall was the scent; the migabee cream definitely exuded an odor that was apparent from the moment the box was opened. Either way this box is what Memebox does best, surprising you.

Memeboxes run the gamut from 15-32$ plus shipping. Each box is released with a different theme. The boxes are ultimately mystery boxes with specific exceptions, and it’s worth the risk.
