Memebox #56 Yogurt Box Review

I really liked Memebox Special #7 Milk box and was excited to see them release a Yogurt box.   I was hoping for some really cool yogurt type products, such as sleep pack, serum, toner.  Perhaps even some milky type makeup!   So, I purchased it and it is now here.

Memebox #56 Yogurt Cosmetics



Yogurt is a yummy and wholesome snack, but when applied topically, you’ll see that this creamy wonder food  also has a multitude of beauty benefits! Yogurt used as part of a beauty regimen dates back to ancient Egypt, when Cleopatra used it as a part of her daily beauty routine to maintain her youth. It contains lactic acid to dissolve dead skin cells that accumulate into the pores! Also, proteins, calcium, and vitamins prevent premature aging, brighten skin, and give the skin a naturally youthful glow! Unlock this ancient beauty secret for your best self ever!

You can see why I was expecting more skincare products, such as creams, serums, etc, based on that description.

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 Fruit Mix Yogurt Mask  These are facial sheet masks that contain fruit extracts, Vitamin E, Collagen and Hyaluronic acid and will nourish and hydrate your skin.  There isn’t much to say about facial sheet masks anymore.. Pure Smile makes fairly good ones, nothing to write home about, but they are solid facial sheet masks.   I used one while writing this review and it smells like a fermented banana ~ not a bad scent, mind you, but I can smell the banana and background note of wine or something 😉 ~ and it did hydrate my skin.  2 each Value $5.00

Product Description: Made from a blend of yogurt and mixed fruits – banana, kiwi and pineapple extracts – this Yogurt Mask delivers rich moisture and nourishment deep down into the skin and helps maintain  healthy skin condition by preventing dehydration.

haha ~ love the moo’ing cow here!

Happy Bath Facial Yogurt Cleansing Foam  Randomly selected from Gentle, Moist, Silky, Firm.  Happy Bath is by Amore Pacific, so I am glad to see this in the Yogurt box.  I am confused why Memebox called the foam types the names that they did as other sites use the essence name.  They are should be Berry Essence, Fruit Essence, Grain Essence and Herb Essence.   Since Memebox did that, I am going to describe all of the 4 types below, instead of just the one I received, which is the Berry Essence (FIRM).  Although I would have preferred the Herb Essence, at least Berry is suitable for all skin types.   I tried a bit on my arm and it does foam up nicely and has a very slight, light berry scent to it.    Full Size 120 mL Value $6.00

So, based on that, keep in mind that

  • Gentle:  Grain Essence :: Sensitive Skin Type
  • Moist: Fruit Essence :: Dry Skin Type
  • Silky: Herb Essence :: Oily Skin Type

Finally, the Firm type is made from 3 different berries – blueberry, raspberry and cranberry –  and helps increase skin elasticity and smoothen out uneven skin tone and texture

Even comes with its own spatula to mix

Ettang Modeling Take Out Cup Pack Yogurt   This is an interesting product.  It is a modeling pack and this is a single use pack.  A modeling pack is where you mix the modeling powder with water and apply that mask to your face.  As it dries, it molds to your face, and when it is completely dry, you peel it off ~ removing all of the gunk that is stuck in your pores.  They actually make these in different ingredients, such as peppermint (please, memebox, a PEPPERMINT box!!), propolis (honey!), and oatmeal.  This box got the Yogurt one. Single use 17g  Value $3.00

Watch this youtube video to see how it is mixed, applied and peeled off

Purederm Skin Softening Strawberry Yogurt Mask  I have received similar products from Purederm ~ the oatmeal warming mask and aloe vera cooling mask. This is the soothing mask.   This contains a blend of yogurt extracts and strawberry extracts that will provide a radiance and smoothness to your skin tone.  It has concentrated real strawberry extracts, which help brighten the skin tone and refine by controlling sebum.  Full Size 150 mL Value $12.00

How To Use:  Thoroughly Cleanse face. Apply the mask evenly over face and neck, avoiding eyes and lips. After 15-20 minutes, Rinse with water.




Rappol Calming Cream  This is for sensitive skin and is made with lactic acid (the milk-yogurt connection).   I only found this product on their own website and it is all in Korean, so it is hard to make out what the actual product description is there.  However, it does mention  “Formula Phyto-ceramide to ceramide-enriched nutrition cream”  So, I am now curious about what this is…..

“In a Japanese study, eight people’s eyelids were treated with a ceramide gel for four weeks with the result that “water content of eyelid skin was significantly increased after treatment.”  There’s also a French study, showing that topical ceramides with “other skin lipids” improved skin barrier repair. A ceramide gel was also shown to relieve dermatitis, while sphingolipids (which as mentioned above is made up of ceramide) from a lactic acid bacteria was applied topically and increased the skin’s resistance to aging.  So topical ceramide seems a good addition to our skincare regimen. Ceramide has been a mainstay of Elizabeth Arden products for years…. “  From

So ceramides are specifically for dry skin and as well aging skin.  It has a slight scent to it, which isn’t unpleasant and I do like how it feels on my skin.   It does not have an oily or greasy residue, which I was worried about; in fact, my skin is almost matte and is not tacky to the touch.   This was one product that I was thinking I would not use, but it turns out I do like it a lot!!  Full Size 150 g Value $59.00

Product Description:  The founders of Rappol started off their brand because they hoped to make a super gentle and effective product line for their own baby who was suffering from highly allergic, sensitive skin. Enriched with lactic acids and other various moisturizing complex, the Rappol Calming Cream works to strengthen the skin’s level of immunity and self-regenerating ability while offering a concentrated care and treatment of allergy-prone skin

Ingredients in Korean...if anyone can translate, I would appreciate it!

Holika Holika I Want Chu Lip Balm Strawberry Smoothie Personally, I would have loved to have the “Mottio”, which is a typo and should be Mojito – Lemon & mint.  Not that I need another lip balm!!   This duo will be gifted to one of my nieces, so I won’t open them to see if they actually taste or smell like a strawberry smoothie.   I guess if you don’t have a lover, or if your lover doesn’t want to put on a lip balm, you can mix these together on your own lips 😀  Full Size 3.7g X 2ea -retails at $11

Product Description: This super cute and unique lip balm set comes in two separate products – one in strawberry and one in yogurt – which, when come in contact, make a chemical reaction with each other and transforms into a strawberry smoothie-like scent. Yes,  this is an item to be used before a kiss time with your lover


This box was, in my opinion, a little teeny tiny bit disappointing.   There has to be other yogurt products out there that could have been showcased, but instead, another pure smile and purederm product.   The foaming cleanser, Rappol’s cream and modeling pack will be used, but I was hoping for some other milk-yogurt products by different companies (instead of Purederm or Pure Smile), such as Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Peeling Gel,  Leaders Yogurt Cleansing Mousse,  Holika Holika Sheep Milk Yogurt Pack (Wild Berry or Green Tea), Etude House I Need You! Yogurt Wash Off Mask .   Just something to spice up the box a bit with some brands that people are looking forward to.  Etude House is more popular than Purederm.   Oh well, you win some, you lose some.    I just felt that the “quality” wasn’t here and whereas I will use a few of the products, only two were of surprise and interest to me ~ the modeling pack for interest and the Rappol cream, which I was totally surprised how much I liked 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 $96.00 and that price point really shows in the type of products that were chosen.  ** 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.

Did you get the Memebox #56 Yogurt Box?  What did you think of it and what is your favorite product?  Did it meet up to your expectations or were you thinking it would be different?

  1. This was my third box and as in case of OMG1 I miss something here. There are too many mask items for me, I was also hoping for more cream and serum. Anyway I will try these now as non of them have tried yet 🙂

      1. I totally agree. I really debated about buying this box & then caved when someone else wanted to order it with me to use a big discount code but I definitely would have appreciate some different products than mostly masks and I’m very tired of PureDerm and Pure Smile. They are to skin care masks what Cheek Room and Hope Girl are to the makeup boxes. BORING! Time for some new brands Memebox!!

  2. The modeling pack is sooo fun. The effects didn’t wow me or anything, but the peeling part! I must have serious issues because I was having way too much fun peeling the mask off my face. I liked how everything smelled so fruity and sweet, but I agree that they could’ve put some kind of toner or serum in there.
