Memebox My Cute Wishlist Superbox Review

Memebox has become well-known for their myriad of one-time purchase boxes, and Superbox #41 My Cute Wishlist may be their most sought-after box yet!  It sold out quickly after it launched and I can easily see why.  If you're a fan of Korean beauty and culture, then you're probably also a fan of cute things, which makes this box the perfect mix of both!

Memebox (pronounced "mi-mi-box") is not a subscription service -- each box is a one-time purchase and is only available until it's sold out.  They're constantly releasing new ones, though, so even if you miss out on one there's sure to be another that will suit your fancy on the way.  They send the best in Korean beauty, including skincare and cosmetics.

My Cute Wishlist is a Superbox, meaning that all of the items are full-sized.  Just like the name suggests, this one is full of only the most adorable products!  Superboxes generally cost around $29-$32, but the prices do vary.  You can view the current available Superboxes at the Memebox shop (there are also standard Memeboxes to choose from for a lower cost).  This box is sold out, but I bet if you took a gander at the current ones you'd find something to tickle your fancy!

  • Kocostar Split End Therapy ($6 for 8mL) - This hair mask contains eight types of amino acids that work to prevent breakage and static.  You apply it by putting your hair in a ponytail and then sliding your hair into the wrap, so I'm not so sure how well I'll be able to use this with my shoulder-length hair.  My hair grows quickly, though, so I might just save it for when it's a bit longer.
  • Etude Missing U Hand Cream ($5 for 30 mL) - This is my favorite item in the box because it is just so damn cute!  Each box was randomly given either the Pink Dolphin, Half Seal, Fairy Penguin, or Panda and I'm really glad I got the penguin because I think it's the cutest one.  The scent is my least favorite (cotton), but I just love the container so much that it doesn't matter!  The lotion itself is silky in texture and absorbs quickly.
  • Beauty People Snow White Special Edition Season 2 ($54) - Inside of the tin are five neutral-toned eyeliners, my favorite kind of colors for eye makeup (glimmer black, glimmer brown, glimmer bronze, glimmer gold, glimmer beige).  I've been playing around with them and I think they're fantastic--they apply nice and smoothly and have great pigmentation.
  • Pure Smile Neco Punch Point Pad Hibiscus & Lemon Grass ($2 each for 17 mL) - I'm glad that Memebox includes an informational card with all of the products and how to use them, because these had me stumped.  I know "neco" means cat, but that was about all I could puzzle out about these on my own.  Turns out, they're enriched with vitamin E, collagen, hyaluronic acid, arbutin, and hibiscus and lemongrass extracts to moisturize and control excess sebum.  You just place a pad over any trouble areas you have on your skin for five to ten minutes and let them do their thing.
  • a;t fox Moisturizing Gel Creams ($6 each for 10 mL) - From left to right in the photo above, these are the Jasoyup Tea Whitening Capsule Cream, Gyoolpy Tea Water Gel Cream, and Black Tea Lifting Cream.  The cupcake contains are beyond adorable, and the creams inside all target specific concerns (hence, their names).  I've used the Black Tea Lifting Cream and Gyoolpy Tea Water Gel Cream so far and I like them a lot.  I also like saying the word "gyoolpy."
  • Pure Smile Muddy Girl ($1 for 15g) - I could have gotten either the red clay or charcoal mask, and I received the red clay version.  I would have preferred charcoal, but clay is also great for oily skin like mine.  This is just a standard face mask packet.
  • Etude Sweet Recipe Candy Stick ($5 for 2g) - I received the scent/flavor "Oh! Orange Candy;" the other options were Seedless Strawberry and Sour Lemon.  It's a lip balm that's enriched with bilberry, sugar cane, sugar maple, and orange and lemon extracts.  It moisturizes well and doesn't feel waxy on my lips, which is one of my biggest pet peeves with certain lip balms.
Bottom Line: The My Cute Wishlist Superbox had a total value of $93, with the Beauty People eyeliners pulling most of the weight on that total.  The overall retail value isn't as important to me though as the fact that this box 100% delivered on its promise to be loaded with cute items!

  1. Yeah, gyoolpy is a pretty sweet word. I have no idea what it actually means, of course.
