I just received Memebox OMG2 today and wanted to post about it quickly as I know many people are eager for a peek at this box. I also received Cute Wishlist 2 so I’ll post about that next.
So here’s the deal: Memeboxes are Korean beauty boxes. The OMG series is supposed to contain the freaky deakiest stuff that Korean beauty has to offer.
Weird ingredients, high levels of oddness and cool, innovative products – if that’s your bag, and you’re happy to stretch your comfort zone, then the OMG boxes are for you.
Except…the first box wasn’t especially OMG at all. The products were nice enough, but you don’t buy a box like this for niceness.
OMG2 contains six full sized products, with a combined box value of $154. RRP was $29 plus shipping, although I probably paid a bit less due to discounts and whatnot.
- Cristallin Cellulose Mask x 2 ($10)
I think we are all enjoying the fact that Memebox are now including multiples of sheet masks in their boxes. Apparently this feels like an octopus wrapped around your face. I have been waiting for that feeling my whole life.
- Ladykin Vanpir Dark Repair Cream (50ml $50)
Contains green tea extract to reduce wrinkles and get rid of dark spots on your face. Yes, but can you get rid of the dark spots IN MY SOUL Memebox, eh?
- Milky Dress Bohr-effect Carboxy Gel ($24)
For some reason this brand name always makes me laugh. This is a combination sheet and gel mask which is not very OMG but maybe I will use it and end up looking like Maleficent or something. We can only dream.
- Priori Aroma Ac Moisture Gel Mist (100ml $24)
People on the internets rave about facial mists, and they are never wrong, are they? But I just don’t get it. Why would I want to apply perfectly scary make up then spray goop at my face. I’m not going for the Salvador Dali melting clock look. This mist contains bee venom, propolis, sophora roots (?!!) balloon flower roots (???!!!) and…er…lavender.
- Seatree Syn-Ake Essence (45ml $20)
This is the product I’m most excited about in the box, and the one my family are most terrified about. Syn-ake is synthetic snake venom and by all accounts is a bit like a mild Botox. I have never been interested in Botox on account of the whole injecting yourself with poison in the face element. But this I’m quite excited to use, even if it does give me a forked tongue and a rattle in my tail. BTW there are a choice of these in the box and some will contain a 100ml Total Solution from the same range.
- Haruen Dorothy Haruen-S ($26)
A volcanic rock rollerball to confuse your friends and absorb excess oil from the face.Finally my life is complete. Until the next box arrives.
Over all, I like this a lot more than OMG1, especially the syn-ake which I have been wanting to try.
I have OMG 3 on order, and although these boxes are sold out, the word is that they are due to be a monthly box so keep your eye out and snap one up when they appear. OMGs usually sell out within a few days. So far they have retailed at $29 plus shipping.
A representative from Memebox turned up in a Facebook group I belong to and was asking how weird we wanted these boxes, to which we bellowed AS WEIRD AS YOU CAN POSSIBLY MAKE IT. So if the next one turns up with dried bird poop moisturiser, blame the FB crew.
What do you think of this box?
I bought this box with my own money.
