Informational Card which should explain what I got and its value.




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!

What is my verdict of this box?  Despite the lack of any SkinFood products, I am TOTALLY jazzed about my Superfood box!!   This is an excellent box, full of products I will use and I hope that this is a sign that Memebox will be starting up with their great boxes again ~ as some of the boxes I have gotten in the last few weeks have not been the best boxes all around.  I am so pleased with this box and if Memebox does another Superfood box, I will purchase it.

I paid $23.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $29.99 ~ I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue ** of $116.00.  ** 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.

  1. I’m so very glad some of your boxes arrived. 🙂 I know you have been waiting a long time for some of them to get to you from Korea, or New York, not sure which. Also, very glad the green things do not smell like broccoli. That would be beyond horrible!
