If you`re a fashionista and beauty guru you know that the price for buying and trying new products can get quite expensive. If you enjoy a product then of course the cost may not generally bother you. What about those times you buy something that you hate though? You paid for a product that you`re not going to even use and most likely can`t return. Yuck! That`s why I love when you can get subscription boxes or sample boxes, such as a Memebox, where you can try some new products, for a super low price without spending a ton of money.

I was sent the oriental medicine memebox to check out for myself and I have to say it was quite enjoyable. A favorite beauty regimen among Queens in ancient Korea, oriental medicines were used to revitalize and balance exhausted skin, giving them a beautiful and enchanting glow. Designed to improve softness, luster and elasticity, the mystical properties of oriental medicinal extracts leaves skin looking healthy and youthful. Great for all skin types including sensitive skin, oriental medicinal extracts improve the skin`s functions of regeneration, anti-oxidation, anti-inflammation and moisturization.

Sophia is only 6 years old, but I thought we`d have fun as a little reward and let her try out a mask with me and give her a little make over so she could play dress up. We had a lot of fun and Sophia said it was the best day ever. This gave us a chance to not only have some mommy/daughter time, but to try out the products in the Memebox. Sophia and I really don`t need any of the particular items in this box, but we wanted to try it out anyway. So we used the mask. It applied easily, felt great, gave us some giggles for how silly we looked, but after our faces were well moisturized and felt great! I`m surprised since I don`t consider my face to be dry. We also lotioned up with the hand cream and I tell you, that was wonderful on my dry feet; particularly on my heels!
This memebox I received is a $23 box and is well worth the money. As you can tell by the product list and description, that $23 gave me all (except for one) full sized products to try out and they all valued $17 and up each (the masks were $2/each in value). Add it up and I got a great deal of value from the box! What i like about Memebox compared to subscription box companies is I sort of choose what I want to try in a way. They have various boxes at various prices for various categories. I love it! This is definitely a great way to try new products without a commitment to buy!
