Memebox Christmas Collection #3 Winter Essential Masks Review

My first Memebox Review for 2015!  This is the 3rd box in the Christmas Collection and it is a Winter Essential Masks box.  I am pretty shocked to see this still in stock!   Memebox Mask boxes are usually pretty good and we were spoiled very quickly on this box early on.

Memebox Christmas Collection #3 Winter Essential Masks



The winter season is the most festive time of the year, filled with holiday parties and homeward travels. While winter wonderland may be all fun and games for the mind and soul, it’s not the same story for the skin! During the winter season, your skin needs more lovin’, especially with the constant switching between moisture-sucking indoor heating to frigid cold outdoor temperatures. The harsh environment leaves skin dull, flaky, and as dry-as-a-desert. No matter how much makeup and moisturizer you slather onto your face, when skin cells are dehydrated and malnourished, no amount of highlighter or luminizer will bring back that radiance.   Fret not, because your winter skin care solution is right here. This box, full of winter’s essential masks, caters to all winter skincare needs. Each mask is formulated with unique potent ingredients designed to nourish the skin cells and instantly restore lost radiance. Hydrate, renew, and revitalize the skin for noticeably smoother, velvety, younger-looking skin! 

Informational Card

This box did not come with a nice informational card, which sucks, but an electronic card.  Memebox has to understand that I cannot be running to my computer to look up shit about my product because all of the instructions are in Korean.  I like to have the physical card on hand.  I don’t care if they just send us the pdf in an email, so we can print it off ourselves, just give us a format that is printable.   rubymoon, a wonderful member at,  made a pdf version of this card for us to use and I am using it here.

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!

Velieve Girlish Masks Randomly selected from Collagen Lifting, Honey Moisture, Vita Shining, Aloe Soothing  I received 3 masks from Velieve Girlish series ~ the Honey Moisture, Vita Shining and Aloe Soothing.  I am pretty happy with these 3 selections ~ I love honey, lemon and aloe!   I love the “Greedy Girls” theme ~ reminds me of when I was a bratty kid!!  Full Size 20mL x 3 each  Value $7.00

Rire Patting Water Pack Randomly selected from Lifting, Brightening, Moisture.  I received the Lifting pack which I am fine with ~ evening primrose is not the same as rose and is no relation to that family.   The lifting version will help tighten, brighten and smooth skin and from the box, it has these specific claims to this formula of the patting water pack: “Deep cleansing ~ Exfoliation ~ Pore Care ~ Lifting Care ~ Nutrition Supply ~ Control of Skin Balance ~ Promote the Period of Skin Turn Over”.  The Lifting pack contains the following ingredients which do support the above description:

  • evening primrose ~ contains antioxidants which help with smoothing rough skin, reducing fine lines and lightening dark circles
  • white cedar ~ an astringent, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredient
  • red seaweed ~ filled with minerals, trace elements to soothe skin, reduce redness, reinforce the moisture barrier of your skin as well as tone and balance your skin, to prevent dryness.
  • turmeric ~ helps reduce oiliness, inflammation, exfoliates
  • green tea ~ well known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properites
  • citric acid ~ helps remove dead skin cells, speed up new skin cell growth which in turn helps remove dark spots, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles
  • lactic acid ~ an exfoliator, reduces wrinkles, age spots, discoloration and acne scars

This water is more “thick” than the Blithe patting water and I am interested in seeing how they compare!  Full Size 300mL Value $42.00

Product Description: A new generation of ‘patting water packs’ that works miraculously to balance skin’s PH level, gently melt away dead skin cells, and ultimately enhancing skin tone and texture to reveal clearer, smoother complexion with continuous use. The yellow Lifting pack is made from evening primrose extracts and works to tighten and rejuvenate tired skin. The purple Brightening pack bases its formula on violet extracts which help to balance and brighten uneven skin tone. The pink Moisture pack is enriched with a blend of cherry blossom extracts to deliver rich hydration and healthy moisture & oil balance.

How to use: Remove makeup residues with cleansing oil or foam. Then fill 2/3 of a bowl with water and drop in 1~2 lid-ful of the Patting Water Pack. Mix well and gently pat it all over the face for 15~20 times. Do not rinse afterwards.

Ingredients: water, glycerin, dipropylene glcol, sodium citrate, 1,2-hexanediol, caprylyl glycol, coceth-7, PPG-1-PEG-9 lauryl glycol ether, PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, alcohol denat, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, citric acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, hydroxyethylcellulose, oenothera binnis (evening primrose) flower extract, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, melia azadirachta (white cedar) flower extract, melia azadirachta (white cedar) leaf extract, ocimum sanctum leaf extract, curcuma longa (turmeric) root extract, corallina officinalis (red seaweed) extract, phenoxyethanol, adenosine, disodium EDTA, fragrance analysis

Inoface Real Natural Pulp Essence Sheet Mask  Randomly selected from Snail, Q10, Collagen, Aloe  I received the Collagen sheet mask ~ for soothing, moisturizing and firming ~  which is nice because I didn’t receive the Collagen in the Velieve Girlish Masks :)   Memebox sells these masks as part of the Inoface Modeling Pack Kit in the Memeshop.  Full Size 1 sheet @ 23 mL Value $2.00  

Product Description: Replenish moisture and firmness to dry, sagging skin with the Inoface Real Natural Pulp Essence Sheet Masks each formulated from the concentrated essence of natural ingredients – snail mucus, Q10, collagen and aloe extracts.

Ingredients for Collagen Mask: water, glycerin, butylene glycol, dipropylene glycol, sodium hyaluronate, portulaca oleracea extract, carbomer, triethanolamine, chlorphenesin, methylparaben, phenoxyethanol, hydrolyzed collagen (12mg), fragrance


Esthetic House Collagen Jelly Mask Pack  I can honestly say I am not really into pig collagen jelly packs like this.  This is my 3rd one that I have received from Memebox and I just cannot get over the texture of this stuff.   I should use them, they probably would help quite a bit with my skin’s texture.  This does have a very light peach scent to it, so this could be the piggy mask pack for me!  This pack is supposed to tighten, hydrate and refresh your skin and is made with fermented botanical ingredients and 50% hydrolized collagen ~ hydrolyzed collagen is easier to absorb into the skin for better skin repair. Contains no parabens, ethanol, mineral oils, benzophenone, or artificial pigments Full Size 100 mL Value $13.00 

Product Description: Swallow your skepticism—pig collagen has been shown to be highly effective in firming and tightening the elasticity of skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Rich in collagen peptides extracted from pork rinds, this leave-in, highly-concentrated collagen facial mask pack from Esthetic House absorbs easily, leaving skin firmer, nourished, moisturized, and freshened. Suitable for all skin types.

How to use: Apply a moderate amount to clean face, massaging until absorbed. No need for rinsing off.

Key Ingredients:  water, glycerin, hydrolyzed collagen (50,000mg), carprilin, butylene glycol, glycol, sodium hyluronate, bacillus, PEG-60 hydrogenated caster oil, xanthan gum, polyglutamic acid, phenoxyethanol, bean fermentation extract, carbomer, triethanolamine, allantoic acid, panthenol, adenosine, disodium EDTA, frangrance

Lassie’el Raspberry Age Defying Yogurt Massage Mask Oh, I love these little containers and I love it even more when Memebox gives us more than one of them!  There are four of these beautiful little gems in my box  and they are packed with yogurt extracts (lactobacillus), an excellent soothing anti-inflammatory, and raspberry extracts, rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants.   I even got a reusable “lid” for my masks, because usually, each container is good for a couple of uses.  Nice! Full Size 12g   Value $6.00

Product Description: Deeply replenish and revive dry, dulled skin with a rich blend of yogurt extracts that effectively sloughs away dead skin cells and skin impurities from the pores and prevent oxidation of the skin. The yogurt formula consists of lactobacillus, raspberry extracts, and collagen extracts which all work to fight and diminish appearance of wrinkles and sagging, aging skin.

How to use: Spread the mask evenly over clean face. Massage onto the face using hands until the micro-beads in the mask formula completely disappear. Rinse off with lukewarm water after 5~10 minutes.

Ingredients: Water, Collagen, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Glycerin, Olea Europaea (olive) Fruit Oil, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sucrose palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl stearate citrate, Sucrose, Mannan, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7, Xanthan Gum, Propylene Glycol, Rubus Idaeus (raspberry) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Yogurt Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methyl Paraben, CI 42090, CI 17200, Fragrance analysis

Pure Smile Jewelry Bubble Ruby & Pure Bubble Royal Jelly  Yes, Memebox is listening to us!  These may be one-two uses, but we are getting more than one of them.   These are little wash off facial bubble packs and there isn’t a lot of information out there on the interwebs about them. .  Full Size 3g X 2ea  Value $2.00

Product Description: These two wash-off facial packs are each formulated from concentrates of ruby extracts and royal jelly extracts. The Jewelry Bubble Ruby pack is a skin soothing and replenishing formula that consists of ruby powder, green tea, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera leaf, glycerin, vitamin E, and portulaca extracts. The Pure Bubble Royal Jelly pack is also enriched with over 40 kinds of vitamins and minerals and helps treat acne-prone skin types by deeply cleansing the pores and nourishing damaged skin.

How to use: Spread the pack evenly over clean, towel-dried face. Gently massage the self-generated bubbles 2~3 times as the bubbles penetrate deep into the pores and extract skin impurities clogged up. Rinse off with lukewarm water when the bubbling stops. 

Pure Ruby Key Ingredients: hyaluronic acid, green tea extract

Royal Jelly Key Ingredients: hyaluronic acid, chlorella extract

Two great mask boxes in a row!  I really love the diversity in this box ~ facial sheet masks, bubbling wash off masks, creamy wash off masks, the patting water and the dreaded piggy collagen pack ~ I really need to use them.  I just cannot get over the texture ~ anyone else feel that way about them?

I paid $23.00 + 6.99 in shipping, for a total of $29.99 and received a  MemeValue ** of $72.00.  ** 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.  This box is still available at Memebox and I do think it is a top rate box!
