Memebox Special #59 Scrub 2 Box Review

I thoroughly enjoyed my Scrub 1 box and when Memebox decided to offer a sequel to it, I bought it, hoping that Memebox would hit another home run with the Scrub series.

Memebox #59 Scrub 2


If you liked our first Scrub Box, you’re definitely in for a treat with this Scrub Box #2! Polish, retexturize, and resurface the skin by blasting away debris on the skin’s surface for a head-to-toe glow! Once the surface of the skin is polished and renewed, the skin will be ready to soak up more nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants, and lock in moisture for younger, smoother, and more radiant skin!   Scrub-a-dub-dub deep down into the skin to get that lit-from-within, rosy glow! In this world of ever-changing beauty trends, it’s nice to know that clean, supple, and glowing skin will always be “in!” 


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!

Beauty Firm  Rubbing Jelly Scrub  I am really happy to get this item as one of my elbows always has rough skin on it ~ I think it is because it is the elbow that I lean on the most.  This has a pink, rubber scrubber attached to the end and you squeeze on the tube, which then fills the scrubber with the apricot scrub. Despite its phallic exterior, I think this is a handy little scrubber and an innovative idea!   Too bad I cannot find it anywhere to share more information with you or how to purchase it.  Full Size 60 mL Value $7.00

Product Description: This cute jelly scrub features a super skin-smoothing blend of argan oil, apricot seeds, and panthenol to gently polish, smooth, and moisturize dry and callused elbows and heels. It features a silicon jelly bristle pad to gently yet effectively loosen up dry and callused skin surface to reveal younger, brighter, smoother skin.

How To Use: Turn the jelly brush to “open”, squeeze out the scrub formula, and massage over heels and elbows.    Rinse the jelly brush thoroughly after use.


ddung Family Peeling Gel  Face Peeling Gel with the Creepy Doll.   I cannot.  I cannot.  I cannot.  Someone else needs to be the brave person here and try out a ddung product, because I cannot.    The horrible faces that they use in their  packaging just makes me feel like I am going to wind up looking like them. I hope this is the last of ddung products.   Please, please.   I have read that the cleanser that was in MCW4 was very drying and harsh, so I am a leery of this brand.  I haven’t heard any raves about this product line ~ if you use it and love it, please comment below with the item you use and what is so fantastic about it.    This peeling gel contains aloe vera leaf, grapefruit, centella asiatica and chamomile extracts.  Full Size 120 mL Value $18.00

Product Description:  A facial peeling gel enriched with aloe vera leaf, grapefruit, centella asiatica and chamomile extracts for soothing and smoothening (smoothening??) out the skin.  It will exfoliate away excess seburn, impurities and dead skin cells to reveal clearer, brighter and silkier complexion.

Pure Smile Jewelry Scrub Amethyst Hmmmm, I had received this product in my Sweet Shop box.  It is okay, it is a body scrub, smells perfume-y, does the job nicely.   I just wish they would have given us a different body scrub product.  As far as  repeats go, I am not overly upset about this one. Full Size 100 mL Value $10.00

Product Description: Pure Smile’s sweetly scented body scrub is made from black sugar, shea butter, jojoba seed oil, glycerin and also amethyst powder extracts for cleansing your skin of any impurities and maintaining it silky smooth and healthy!

ProYou S Special E/B Creamy Peel   This is a creamy peeling gel (gommange)  and I have liked the ProYou line that Memebox has sent out in past boxes.   What else can I say about peeling gels that most of us do not already know?  You apply this to a dry, clean face, massage and roll away the dead skin cells and debris that is on your face.  I do like all of the botanical ingredients and that I am interested in trying out.   Full  Size 50 g Value $48.00

Product Description: This creamy peeling gel visibly rolls, lifts, and sweeps away dead skin cells when massaged onto skin. Papaya enzymes, rosemary, green tea and other natural ingredients 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.  Visibly rolls, lifts, and sweeps away dead skin cells for visibly radiant skin

How to Use: On clean skin, gently massage in a circular motion to roll, lift, and sweep away dead skin cells. Rinse well with water.

Key Ingredients:  allantoin, punica granatum (pomegranate)  fruit extract, ficus carica (fig) fruit extract, codonopsis lanceolata (bonnet bellflower)  root extract, natto gum, jojoba oil, carica papaya  (papaya) fruit extract, centella asiatica extract, chamomilla recutita flower extract, glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, camellia sinensis leaf extract, polygonum cuspidatum (japanese knotweed) root extract,  rosemarious officinalias (rosemary) leaf extract, scutellaria baicalensis (Baikal skullcap) root extract

Tonymoly Gold Black Sugar Mask  I received Skinfood’s Black Sugar Mask in my SkinFood box, so I will be interested in seeing how the Tonymoly version compares.   I am still using my Skinfood item, so this one will have to wait until I am almost done with that to start comparing.   This mask is made from black sugar, gold, honey and full of minerals and vitamins.   Full Size 100 mL Value $7.00

Product Description: Tony Moly Gold Black Sugar Mask contains black sugar and gold power to gently exfoliate dead skin cells. It provides nutrition deep into the skin and at the same time provides intense moisture, leaving the skin fair, luminous and silky to the touch.

Once again, Google translate fails me….

Pureplus+ Skin Freyla Foot Peeling   I always enjoy foot peeling masks and I have received Pureplus+ products in a couple of my Memeboxes and I think they are a good solid skincare company.  These are not moisturizing masks for your feet, these are masks that you leave on for 90 minutes after you cleanse (soak) your feet and then remove, rinse and dry.  I always rub foot lotion on my feet and then put on a pair of comfy socks.   Within 7-10 days (some people start at 4 days), the dry skin on your feet will begin to flake off and peel.  It is disgusting to look at, but like a train wreck, you cannot help but be fascinated by it and you will be obsessed with peeling off the dead skin flakes.  Value $12.00

How To Use

Well, compared to Scrub 1, this is a pale reflection of that box.    I guess Scrub 1 was a very hard act to follow and maybe Memebox doesn’t know that much about scrubbing products?   What I would have liked in addition:   A scrub brush and a powder peeling enzyme product, similar to what Amore Pacific makes.   The ddung product taints this box for me somewhat, but in the end,  I will enjoy all three scrub items, the ProYou peel sounds interesting and of course, the foot peeling mask.   This is not an awful box ~ my first impressions of it were not that positive, but after unboxing and seeing the products for myself, it is a good box.  Not great, not earth shattering, but  a decent box.    Much better than Volume Up!

I paid $23.00  and this was bundled with Volume Up!, so the shipping was included.   I am sure I had Memepoints and this box was much less ~ and received a MemeValue ** of $102.00 and I will use all of the products, save the ddung one, unless someone can convince me otherwise!

One thought on “Memebox Special #59 Scrub 2 Box Review

  1. Nothing too exciting though the ProYou creamy peel looks nice in terms of packaging. I’m glad I cancelled this box.
    I too have the ddung foaming cleanser from MCW3 but after reading that people are finding it too drying, I’m apprehensive about using it as well.
