Memebox Review - #62 Tea Tree Cosmetics - Korean Beauty Box + ANNOUNCEMENT

This post contains affiliate links.
What is it? Memebox
How much? $19-$39 per box - one time purchase, plus $6.99 shipping
What's in it? 4-7 full-sized Korean beauty products and deluxe samples. Contents vary from makeup, skin care, hair, and body products.
 
The new craze in the beauty box world is Memebox (pronounced mi-mi box). Memebox is a Korean beauty box and e-commerce retailer. It's not a subscription service. Instead, Memebox releases limited edition boxes filled with the hottest beauty products from Korea.  

Unfortunately, Memebox recently announced they will not be shipping internationally after February 10, 2015. They will only offer shipping to Korea, China, and USA (countries where they already have distribution set up). If you have been wanting to try Memebox, or have MemePoints left to spend, be sure to place your order before the end of day on February 10th.

I ordered several boxes quite a while ago, but wanted to wait until I tried some of the products before I reviewed them. Most boxes sell out quickly so by the time I receive them, they are no longer available to purchase. Because of this, I feel it is more important to tell you about the actual products so you can get an idea about what K-Beauty is all about.

This review is for box #62 Tea Tree Cosmetics. It is sold out, but most of these products are available for purchase through Memebox. The box cost $27, plus $6.99 shipping. Upon opening the box I noted there are no cosmetics! I think this box should have been named Tea Tree Skincare.
Show blemished skin who’s boss with this Tea Tree Cosmetics Box!


If you’re prone to blemishes, oily skin, and skin’s biggest nemesis, blackheads, this Tea Tree Cosmetics Box will surely save you from your troubled skin woes!


Tea tree ingredients, known for their topical antiseptic and anti-fungal properties, are the “jack of all trades” when it comes to targeting and treating blemish-prone skin. It also reduces the oil and sebum secretion on skin for the look of healthy and radiant skin, minus the embarrassing shine! Get this box to regenerate damaged skin tissue and improve the skin’s healing process for the look of clearer, and brighter skin.


Say bye-bye to shine and hello to flawless skin!
The information card gives product details, plus instructions for use. Most of the products are in Korean with no trace of English so this feature is important!

Purederm Tea Tree Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes (30 sheets, $7)
Make-up removing towelettes soaked in tea tree extracts, Vitamin E, green tea extracts, and aloe vera extracts to effectively calm and comfort the skin while gently removing all stubborn lip and eye makeup residues in one easy go.
Love these. Great for on-the-go and very refreshing.

Purederm Tea-Tree Pore Freshner (170ml, $24)
This Tea Tree Pore Freshener is enriched with tea tree extracts, witch hazel water, sage extracts, lemon balm extracts, and peppermint extracts. When used on a cotton pad to tone skin after cleansing, it helps soothe and de-stress stimulated skin and maintain a healthy skin condition by controlling makeup residues, dirt, and impurities clogged up in the pores.
First, I love the bottle. It's a pump bottle which means you can pump product directly onto a cotton pad. They don't package enough products in pump bottles like this.

Tosowoong Tea Tree AC-Control Soothing Lotion (100ml. $19)
65% tea tree leaf water and 3% tea tree extracts, the Tosowoong Tea Tree AC-Control Soothing Lotion effectively alleviates red, stimulated skin while treating acne-prone skin overall for a healthier, cleaner complexion.  The gentle formula also helps firm up and fill in fine lines & wrinkles. 
I couldn't find a need for this, so I sold it on my Pinterest board.

DD'ell Moisture Facial Mask 03 Tea Tree (23g, $7)
Formulated with abundant tea tree extracts, tea tree oil, green tea extracts, deep ocean water, allantoin, and orange peel extracts, this Moisture Facial Mask instantly cools, hydrates, and alleviates blemishes and stimulated skin.
I gave this mask away as part of a sheet mask swap hosted by a FB group I am a part of, so I am unable to comment on its effectiveness. 

ProYou Tea Tree Oil (10ml, $24)
A bottle of pure tea tree oil targeted to care for blemished skin.  it has soothing and antibacterial properties which help treat red spots effectively without drying out the skin.
I add a few drops to shampoo to help soothe the scalp, and use it with facial creams to make them double duty.
I haven't figured out what to do with this yet... maybe add it to lotion or shampoo even.

Shara Shara Bee Tox Spot Cream (15ml, $18)
A concentrated blend of bee venom, white willow bark extracts, and 6 varieties of herbal extracts for relieving, clarifying and controlling blemish spots and excessive oil & sebum on acne-prone skin.
I LOVE this stuff. I get hormonal breakouts and a few dabs of this day and night on an emerging pimple and within two days all trace of it was gone. North American acne products use salicylic acid, which is incredibly drying. This tea tree/bee venom mix didn't dry my skin out at all.

The #62 Tea Tree Cosmetics box contained six full size products with a retail value of $99 US. I paid $33.99 US for this box, so it's a great value. It's a well curated box full of products I've enjoyed trying out and will continue to use. It's definitely worth the money paid.

  1. Nice to see you liked some of the stuff in here. Didn't get this box myself but its a great value to it. So sad to hear that there not shipping to Canada anymore. I still have a bunch of points so I'm going to be using them up and buying some boxes before the end date. I do have enough skincare to last me a lifetime, lol.

  2. I used my tea tree oil to make some DIY tea tree face wash. It was pretty easy, with mostly ingredients I had (some tea, some olive oil, the tea tree oil - I had to pick up some castille soap) and I am liking it so far.
