Memebox Special #38 My Mask Box Review

Masks, masks, masks, masks, MASKS!  I love facial masks, foot masks, hand masks…just about every type of mask (just about…not all!)   I am always happy when Memebox comes out with another edition of their mask box.  This review is for Memebox Special #38 My Mask Box, also know as Mask Box 5th Edition.  These mask boxes always sell out quickly, as they are a great deal ~ and they just aren’t all facial sheet masks either!

Wake up in the morning with deeply moisturized skin not having to worry about dryness during the night. Give your skin the extra attention it deserves with our new Mask Edition #5.



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!

Pure Smile Mask sheet  randomly selected from Mayu, Sake, Citron, Placenta, Pearl or Honey . Its a pack of 5 sheet masks, so this is a nice change.  I wish we would have gotten all 5 different types, instead of 5 of all of the same type.  I did receive the Pearl one, which is okay.  I have tried Pearl before, but it would have been nice to try the Sake!     I actually do not mind getting Pure Smile if they are sheet masks, as they make nice ones.   5 sheet masks Value $6.00

Product Description: Rich in Vitamin E and collagen, Pure Smile Mask Sheet is moisturizing and relaxing and its gentle formula suitable for all skin types.  Provide moisturizing and brightening effects to your ski

Ingredient includes: Pearl powder,Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen and Natto gum

*cough, cough* For those who got the Mayu masks and were wondering what the hell Mayu is… It is horse oil.  As in extracted from horse fat.  “Mayu(horse oil) contain 61% of Omega 3,6,7,9 and help to form skin collagen and elastin  Mayu is a fat-forming element extracted from a horse’s adipose tissue and is used as cosmetic ingredient. It is listed as Horse fat on the Cosmetic Ingredients Dictionary. By word from Chinese classic medical books, there are records to show that it grows hair, heals chapped hands and feet and helps blood circulation.  Also it has been widely used for burns or atopic dermatitis medicine across Japan or other Asian regionals.   The main ingredients of Mayu includes palmitoleic acid and ceramide, and is best for moisturizing, skin protection, promoting cell restoration, sun protection, and antibacterial. The ingredients of Mayu are very similar to human’s sebum, so it can be absorbed easily and has no resistance to human skins. Therefore it is the most desirable and promising beauty treatment.” From

“Horse oil has been used as a folk medicine for burns, cuts and insect bites over centuries. It has a long history and its roots go back to the equestrian people of ancient China. It is believed to have been brought to Japan during the Tang Dynasty (618A.D. – 907A.D.). As you can tell by the name, horse oil is an animal fat. As animal fats usually have a high content of saturated fatty acids, many women tend to avoid it. However, horse oil contains a greater amount of unsaturated fatty acids (essential fatty acids) than saturated fatty acids even though it is an animal fat. It contains alpha-linolenic acids and linoleic acids that cannot be produced in the body.  The best feature of horse oil is its extreme permeability to the skin. As the fatty acid composition of horse oil is similar to that of the human sebum when compared to other oils and fats, its permeability to the skin is outstanding. When applied to the skin, it penetrates smoothly leaving no greasy feelings“.  From 

Just sayin’….

Pro You Pore Control Facial Mask  I am chuckling here as this is another Pro You product that is very difficult to find (see my Free From Oil & Trouble 4 review) and yet, Memebox has a lot of Pro You products in their shop – just not this one! So, again, I will link to the pdf from Pro You and also use the card description.  I am pleased with the ingredients that are listed, as I do love aloe vera, hyalurnoic acid, witch hazel and green tea extracts and it has fig fruit extracts too 🙂   I don’t really have blackheads, but I do have adult acne.  Full Size 200g Value $53.00

Product Description: This Pore Control Facial Mask boosts strong adsorption level witch effectively removes all blackheads and skin impurities from enlarged pores and prevents skin damages and roughing.  While the hyalurnoic acid and vegetable collagen delivers deep hydration into  the skin, the aloe vera gel, witch hazel, green tea and chamomile extracts work to tighten back the pores after  blackhead remover and soothe irritate or damaged skin

Purederm Wrinkle Reducer Gel Patches  Eye wrinkles are my downfall.  I laugh a lot, have a very expressive face, so it is no surprise that I have laugh lines around my eyes.  I am very interested in trying this out to see if they work.   Full Size 1 box 6 treatment patches Value $12.00

“There’s always room for Jell-O”...Nope, that is the Jella Pack!

Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jella Pack  I really like the Elizavecca line ~ I’ve received several of them in my Memeboxes.  This is a Jelly Pack and whereas it is in a mask box, it really is another sleeping pack.  You massage it into your skin until it is fully absorbed.  I would not think this is a day pack, but an overnight treatment.   I could be wrong, however….Please let me know in the comments below if this is to replace a step in your day time treatment.   The texture is like a Jello pudding pack ~ 😀 ~ and when it is applied, it melts into my skin quickly and leaves a sheen to my skin, without feeling sticky. Full Size 100 mL Value $30.00

More Information:

Product Description: Elizavecca Green Piggy Collagen Jelly Pack is a mask enriched with 50% pure collagen, giving you a baby-soft, peachy complexion. 50000 mg of collagen peptide, which is extracted from natural pig skin,  blended with adenosine, bean fermentation extract, macadamia seed oil and cacoa extract to deeply nourish skin and lock in moisture. The cooling gel texture forms a resilient, jelly-like layer on your skin, allowing all the nutrients to penetrate. Enhances skin elasticity and firmness, suitable for all skin types. Product is free from parabens, ethanol, animal-derived oils and artificial colors.

This is such a popular item, that it already has “fakes” out there.   Elizavecca has provided some images to help you determine if your Green Piggy Collagen Jelly Pack is authentic or a fake.

I love my mask box!! I won’t use the bust mask, but that mask has already found a new home 🙂  This is such a really solid, good box, from sleeping packs, to facial masks, pore masks, neck masks and masks with unusual ingredients.  Once again, I know I sound like a Meme-FanGirl, but when Memebox gets it right, they hit a home run!!  Believe me, when I don’t like a box, you all know it ~ I probably like this more than others, because I have a facial sheet overload right now.  I have tons of facial sheet masks, so having other types of masks was just fine by me.

I paid $23.00 (the shipping was free because it was bundled with Free From Oil & Troubles 4)  but I do know that I probably used my VIP discount, Memepoints and coupons.   I received a MemeValue  of $143.00

  1. OK, let me see if I have this right- I may get a Mayu sheet mask, and if I do, it’s made from equine collagen?
    And then there is a sleeping mask made of porcine collagen?
    I’d rather have had ONE snail mask product than these two items. At least the snails aren’t dead ( supposedly).

    I’ve never used collagen because of the horrible rendered animal connective tissue ( including fat), hooves and bones) used in most traditional collagen products. It makes me rather ill that they couldn’t source botanicals for a mask box.


  2. Wow! Thanks for posting this so quickly! Really love that your review is so detailed too. I ordered this box too, but has not arrived yet…
    Though I have to say I personally am a little bit disappointed with this box. I had never gotten a Memebox Mask Box before and I’m pretty new to sheet masks, so when they put up this new one I jumped on it. I was just hoping there would be some more sheet masks in this one like the pervious ones. Oh well…
    Hopefully I’ll still love some of the products though 🙂

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I have only mask 4 to compare it with, but I can tell you that both mask 4 & 5 didn’t have a lot of sheet masks. I don’t even think mask 1 -3 had a lot of sheet masks either. If you live in the USA, check out – they run sales all the time, have lots of masks and special kits. Also, free shipping for orders over 40.00, free gift, samples and they give you cash back rewards for every purchase (based on the amount you spend). Those can be used in future orders 🙂 Very fast shipping too – priority mail.
