Memebox Princess Edition #4 The Little Mermaid Box Review

This is my second box in the Princess Editions.  My first box was Sleeping Beauty and that was so off the mark as far as night care products.  Only one item in that box was a product specifically created as an overnight treatment.   However, when the Ariel Little Mermaid box was released, I purchased it as I really loved the Earth & Sea box and was hoping for a sequel with this Little Mermaid box.  Memebox had originally called this Ariel, but that is Disney protected and it quickly changed to Little Mermaid.

Memebox Princess Edition #4 The Little Mermaid


The Little Mermaid is by far one of our most favorite princesses. This beautiful red head is a daring, free-spirited princess with passion for adventure (just like you!) going from the ocean to land to try beautifying goodies that are fun and exciting!  We’re taking the cue from this fab mermaid to bring you the best of skin care from both land and sea! Give your skin a beauty boost by cleaning out jammed pores, extracting dirt and other impurities to the root with deep cleansing and deeply penetrating skincare miracles! I mean, who looks as good as this girl in both water and on land? Use this collection of skincare staples made with the best ingredients from both land and sea, to get the clearest, brightest skin ever!


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!

Pureplus+ Bentonite Cleansing Soap   This soap contains 66 types of natural minerals, including selenium, magnesium, ermanium and calcium.  Bentonite is a stone made from volcanic ash which is transformed to a clay, and  helps remove dirt and oil from the skin by its absorptive properties.  Sericin (cocoon) is similar to our own skin proteins and will help keep skin soft and hydrated.  This soap is very well suited to those with oily and combination skin types.   This soap is also marketed as a shaving soap too.   Full Size Value $12.00

DD’ell Extra Vitalizing Serum  This serum looks to have a couple of sea algae extracts in it ~ a red algae and the one that looks like green grape clusters looks to be Caulerpa Lentillifera ~ which is good at skin moisturizing and firming.   Caulerpa Lentillifera has β glucan, which is similar to hyaluronic acid.  It also has galactomyces, which is wonderful for all skin types (unless you are allergic to fermented grains)  It also contains konjac root extracts, which help plump up your skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.   I am really excited about getting this serum.    It has a really cool drop applicator ~ you just press down, once or twice,  on the silver button on the top and that will fill up the drop applicator with serum, then you lift the applicator out of the bottle.  The serum is not thick, but has a runny consistency, slightly milky in color with a light citrus scent to it. I spot tested this on my hand and it left my hand smooth and very hydrated, not sticky or tacky.  Full Size 30 mL Value $42.00

Product Description:  This Extra Vitalizing Serum is formulated with algae extracts and galactomyces ferments both rich in various minerals, vitamins and amino acids.  Algae is known as a miracle natural ingredient from the ocean because it boosts great life force and powerful growth, for it grows over a meter each day.  Nutrition-rich extracts from the algae act as strong antioxidant, anti-allergic, and moisturizing agent.    Its formula is also free of 12 chemical ingredients, such as paraben, artifical coloring, benzophenone, formaldehyde, parraffin, BHT and trixflkdjlkddfdfadd

Grinif Collagen Aqua Peeling Gel   I currently use peeling gels today, but I have never had one that is a spray on version.  I like this concept because it seems very neat and non-messy ~ those that use the traditional peeling gels know what I mean.  Grinif is a company that I have received products before and I have liked them, such as the Tea Tree Facial Mist and Aloe Vera Facial Mist.   This peeling gel contains aloe vera, green tea and rosemary. I sprayed some on my hand, rubbed it in and I did find that it was emulsifying the oil and dirt on my hands.   This has a pleasant herbal rosemary scent to it.    Full Size 120 mL Value $20.00

Product Description: Multi-action enzymes (Aloe Vera extract, Avocado oil) along with cellulose effectively peel and help uncover a smooth, fresh, new complexion without drying, irritating, or causing undue stress to skin. It removes impurities and decongests clogged pores for a youthful, radiant look.

dearberry Pure & Popular White Clay Pack   I love a good clay mask and this item is already getting some good reviews on the K-beauty blogger circuit.   I like that it has aloe vera in the mask, as clay alone can be very drying.  The aloe vera will help with keeping your skin moisturized.  Full Size 100g Value $12.00

Product Description: Amazon white clay deeply cleanses sebum and skin impurities piled up in the pore and tightens back up enlarged pores while organic aloe vera extracts soothe and moisturize the skin.  This gentle wash-off clay pack  will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and flawless.

How To Use: Spread the clay pack all over cleansed face.  When the clay starts to dry up after 10 minutes, gently rinse off with lukewarm water.   It can be partially applied over T-zone or areas with excessive blackheads and pores.  Recommended to be used 1-2 times a week

Mizon Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream  This cream contains 30% hyaluronic acid extract and also sap from birch trees and bamboo.  I am really excited to use this cream ~ it might have to be a night time sleep pack for me, however.  That said, I just finished my Goddess cream and I will use this tomorrow and see how well it works as a day cream for me.  Full Size 45 mL Value $19.00

Product Description: Hyaluronic Ultra Suboon Cream is a super-rich hydrating facial lotion formulated with hyaluronic acid that penetrates deeply for fresh, rejuvenated skin. Creates smooth, firm skin that glows. Apply to clean skin.

Additional Information

Pure Smile Original Mask Sheet Randomly selected from Sea Weed, Pearl.   Pure Smile facial sheet masks are always welcomed in my Memeboxes!   I received the Sea Weed and I am pretty pleased with that choice.  I just wish for such a low cost item, they would give us both🙂 hint hint…Also, Memebox should carry Pure Smile masks in their Memeshop.  I know I would purchase them.   1 sheet mask Value $1.00

Product Description: Vitamin E, Collagen and hyaluronic acid mask. Helps revitalize the skin cells and keep the skin tone fresh and healthy. It can also soothe the skin.


I  am really happy with the Mizon, Dd’ell and Grinif being included in this box and the dearberry clay mask is already getting great reviews, from those who got this box express shipped.   This is a very well curated box  and I think that it is getting negative reviews because the packaging is very blah-looking and people are expecting more mud and water products ~ but Memebox did state that there would be “land” in this box (hence the tree sap in the Mizon product)   I give this box a two thumbs up and think that it is a winner.   My next reviews will be on Scrub 2 and Volume Up!  and you will see why I find this box to be really good.

I paid $29.00 + $6.99 in shipping, for a total of $35.99 ~ I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue ** of $106.00.

  1. Fantastic review! I absolutely appreciate the detail here, and all the insights. I loved this box after I stopped judging it on “looks alone” – it really speaks to the fact that packaging goes a long way! I especially love that clay mask, it is wonderful wonderful though I am a sucker for a mask pack, clay especially. The moisturizer is nice too because it isn’t an irritant on my skin – some times that is hard to find. The spray peeling gel – another gem. The serum too, I like. Ive only been using it a few nights now, but it is hydrating and again, no irruption to my skin’s normal behaviour so that is a win. Anyways, great review here! I really appreciate the in depth read!

    1. thank you so much and also your own personal experiences with the products – that is very helpful! This is just a solid box, imho, it has a cleanser, exfoliator, sheet mask, serum, moisturizer and deep skin treatment with the clay pack. Whoever put this box together did a great job picking out the items!


  2. A nicely curated box. The Griniff peeling gel spray seems very convenient. Have heard good things about the Suboon cream as well.
    What I’d really like to know is how they harvest the cocoons. Do they collect the ones that have been left behind after the butterfly has flown? Or…….

  3. Thank you for the wonderfully detailed review! I was a little disappointed when I first saw the spoilers, but now that I’ve read more on it, I’m a lot more excited to open mine and check out everything. Especially the bentonite soap, which I was dreading since I’m not a big fan of bar soap lol. But now I think I can figure out some uses for it. #kbeautybloghop


  4. I just got this box today – I am very happy with it! Not sure why people are saying it’s disappointing?! Anyway, the soap smells so good – I can’t stop sniffing it. I’m hoping the peeling gel will work as well as the Cure gel that I love. I received the pearl sheet mask. I think all of these items are spot on with “The Little Mermaid” theme… Exactly what I was expecting (clarifying products with some sea-like ingredients thrown in)!!!


    1. I know when the spoilers were released, people were disappointed about it – I honestly think it is because of the packaging. All white or blue! I love the box, personally. One of the better ones curated. Once people have it in their hands, their indifference turns to love….

      1. It stinks that people get so caught up on packaging… I’d rather have amazing products in crappy looking boxes and bottles than crap products in cute packaging. I think Memebox did a great job curating this box, like you mentioned above. No complaints here – Sadly, some people just like to complain!
