I had purchased a value bundle that included Superbox #36 Pore Care 3 and Superbox #35 Fermented Cosmetics 2. These boxes were supposed to have shipped out on July 25th via express, but there was an issue with the Fermented Cosmetics box:
We are writing this letter to inform you that due to the DRAN Wonder Fermented Serum (which was used as a Spoiler for Fermented Cosmetics 2) expiring in 10 months, we will officially replace it with a different full-sized product that is equal to or greater in value than the Wonder Fermented Serum. However, we will send this Memebox Spoiler product, the Wonder Fermented Serum, to you as a free full-sized gift for you to test and trial. With this, your newly curated Fermented Cosmetics Box will have 8 full-sized products rather than the original 7 full-sized product assortment, and be of higher total value than your original Fermented Cosmetics 2 Box.
This meant the Fermented 2 box was delayed until August 4th and with that, my Pore Care 3. However, it was worth the wait!

Informational Card which should explain what I got and its value. Superboxes contain nothing but full sized products, so I won’t need to state if it is full sized because it is.
As these products are unknown to me and perhaps even to my readers, I am posting a description of the product under my thoughts for every product. Normally, I just do a snippet or if it is a product that doesn’t really need a description, I won’t post it. But for the purposes of my Memeboxes, I will make sure I find the appropriate description, usage and ingredient list if I can find it. The descriptions will be from the webpage that is linked to the product name. Not all of these products are sold in the Memebox Shop, so I had to look for them on various sites. I really had a hard time finding these products, by the way, so don’t be thrown off by the Korean websites that are linked here!
Bocians Cycle Repair Whitening Spot This is made by Evas Cosmetics line, which we have had several products in our Memeboxes. I like this line, it is very diverse and good. 15 mL Value $24.00
- GALACTOMYCES FERMENT FILTRATE: Helps control our skin’s PH balance. Brightens skin. Naturally remove dead skin cells, resulting in softer, smoother skin. Needed nutrition to the skin and make the skin elastic and transparent.
- HYALURONIC ACID: Hyaluronic acid plays a key role in the skin’s extracellular matrix and has been shown to maintain hydration, improve elasticity and protect against free radical damage. In the skin, hyaluronic acid is responsible for capturing water, in turn maintaining the smoothness and plumpness of the skin. When hyaluronic acid is depleted, skin can become dehydrated and lose elasticity, which accentuates lines and furrows.
- WHITENING Main Ingredient: Niacinamide(VITAMIN B3) has several other skin care benefits besides just acne treatments. It works as a moisturizer, too. It also acts as a skin whitener. This is not to say that it strictly whitens. It acts to restore a healthier complexion. It also smooths the skin and reduces signs of aging like wrinkles. This is due to the fact that it promotes regeneration at the cellular level.
- PEONY ROOT EXTRACT: Improves skin elasticity
- ADENOSINE: Helps to improve wrinkles
How To Use: After cleansing and toning as usual. Apply a small amount of serum on fine lines and wrinkles. Then apply a moisturizer.
cotterang Aesthetic Reparative-K cream This is seems to be a product that is helpful for those who engage in laser, chemical or other facial treatments. That said, even though I do not (yet), this can be used on my laugh lines around my eyes, as well as other areas that I want to spot target. This product has gold in it, which probably explains the HIGH price tag on such a small product. 20 g Value $43.00
Product Description: A facial cream for soothing and nourishing stimulated skin, the Aesthetic Reparative-K Cream is packed with high concentrates of centella asiatica extracts, jojoba oil, sunflower seed oil, and gold extracts. Its soothing formula works to hydrate and calm reddened, sensitive skin by creating a protective layer on top and by instigating skin regeneration.
Main Ingredient: Jissi centella asiatica extract, jojoba oil, wheat oil, sunflower seed oil, panthenol, arginine, allantoin, Squalane, Dipotassium Glyrrhizate

Tosowoong Time Shift Skin Toner I am just flooded with toners! I guess Memebox took us seriously when we said we wanted more toners. I love a good toner and this one is full of great ingredients. I did try this one out and it doesn’t have a scent to it, which I do value in my facial products. 20mL Value $34.00

The Skin House Face Calming Galactomyces Cream I do like Skin House ~ I have received a few products from them from Memebox now. I have SO many facial creams, but I am making a promise to slather my face and use them all up! This has a light texture and I also like that this seems to address oily skin. I am almost done with my Dr G cream for oily skin, so this one will be next in line to use! 30mL Value $19.00
Product Description: The cream contains fermented yeast fungus, which is rich in a lot of B vitamins, A and R. As it contains chemical elements such as calcium, iron, zinc, iodine, folic acid. The presence of lactic acid bacteria and yeast-like organisms has rejuvenating and anti-cancer effects on skin cells. Cream not only rejuvenates, but also cleans, protects, refreshes, tones and smooths the skin. With daily use, you can pull the most wrinkles and prevent further occurrence, as well as reduce the oiliness of the skin. The skin becomes more elastic, fresh and young, freed of toxins, improves its color.
How To Use: Apply the cream evenly over cleansed face and neck. Gently give a massage in a circular motion.

SOYBIO+ Fermented Soap I cannot find anything on this particular product out there, so I will just use the MemeCard description below. I guess it is so highly prized that it is a secret!! It does smell nice, has a very herbal-y scent which I find pleasant. The nice thing about soaps is that they KEEP. I have lots of cleansers to go thru first and then I can use my soaps. I am set for life with facial soaps ~ lol. 80g Value $42.00
Product Description: Made from fermented bean extracts and BTX complex, SOY BIO+’s Fermented Soap is highly prized for its gentle yet thorough cleansing power which has proven to remove makeup residues more effectively than regular foam cleansers. Its abundant bubbles gently penetrate in to your clogged pores and cleanse away all dead skin cells and impurities for a moist, supple and brightened complexion overall.
How To Use: Lather the soap until enough bubbles are created and then massage onto your face with your fingers. Rinse off with warm water.
DermaHouse Galactomyces Wrinkle Care Essence Mask This facial mask is made from a whole bottle of galactomyces and adenosine ampoule! I will save this as a treat then. 30mL Value $2.00

Okay ~ This is not appetizing, but I guess it is fine, because I am not going to eat the mask!
D’Ran Wonder Serum For Regenerating & Firming Ahh, so you were the product that caused the hold up in my box? This is the serum that expires in less than a year. Better use it on my parts that needs some firming then. I have received a D’Ran Wonder Serum in my Oriental Medicine Box, but that was for Nourishing & Revitalizing. This one has 7 different fermented plant extracts, snail mucin and EGF components. I am not a huge fan of D’Ran because I find it to have a strong scent ~ it isn’t unpleasant, but it is strong. However, I do not have any negative reactions to D’Ran, so it will be used, scent be damned! 30mL Value $42.00

I am very pleased with this box, even though it has a ton of creams in it. I guess they are for different uses ~ bocians and cotterang are for spot treatments and special needs and The Skin House is an all over face cream. I was hoping for more Galactomyces and this box contained 3 items with that ingredient ~ Tosowoong, The Skin House and DermaHouse products. I am most excited to try out the Panda Eye masks, Tosowoong Time Shift Skin Toner and the facial mask. I was a little disappointed they didn’t include any of their Whamisa line in here ~ a body wash or body butter instead of one of those small facial cream tubes would have been nice and would have been cheaper!
I paid $32.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $38.99 and received a MemeValue ** of $215.00. ** What is MemeValue? It is my term to describe the value that Memebox puts on the products, which can be very over inflated. You can usually find these products at a lesser cost, so I do suggest researching first if you wish to purchase them. This is the highest price point I have received in a box, but this is also due to the extra item they included.
