Review: Memebox Special #32: OMG 2!

OMG 2! I was lucky enough to be sent this memebox from the company about two weeks ago now to review! I've since used everything but one item and it's time to do an all encompassing reviewing of this box! According to Memebox, the Memebox Special #32: OMG 2 is suppose to come with 4-8 full sized products of which I received 6 products mostly all fulled sized. This box is a skincare box with items for the face and two types of face mask. 

I was super excited on knowing I was getting my first memebox ever and although I'm always a bit more excited when it comes to make up, I was not disappointed by the array and performance of products in the OMG 2! 

Continue below for the review of the box!
Memebox Special #32: OMG 2
The super pretty and famous hot pink Memebox! Love the color, simplicity and sturdiness! It arrives very nicely in a thick bubble wrap!
 According to the Memebox website this box is described as such,

"We rounded up some of the kookiest and most unusual beauty trends that took Seoul by storm! From funky makeup trends to cool skin and hair treatments, these fun cosmetic innovations will definitely inspire you to rethink your current makeup routine. Loaded with even weirder, even funkier Memebox cult favorites, this box is a must have for beauty enthusiasts and beauty-holics!"

What I got in the Memebox Special #32: OMG 2

I personally wasn't shocked or went "OMG" out loud when I saw the contents of the box but was very happy to see the array of products that almost anyone would be able to use easily. I like how everything in my box focuses on skincare and quenching the skin/ keeping the skin clean and balanced. It has a good mix of light products as well as some specialized products. 

Memebox Special #32: OMG 2: Cristallin Cellulose Mask, Ladykin Vanpir Dark Repair Cream, Milk Dress Bohr-effect carboxy gel, Priori Aroma Ac Moisture Gel Mist
Memebox Special #32: OMG 2: Seatree Syn-Ake Essence, Haruen Dorothy Haruen-S
Cristallin Home Care Wrinkle Care effect cellulose mask!
Description and directions: This mask is full of concentrated cellulose that is suppose to encourage the skin to recover by providing a rich infusion of ingredients. The jelly like texture is suppose to feel like an octopus wrapped on your face. You are suppose to apply this on cleansed skin and remove after 15 minutes without rinsing afterwards.

This product was pretty darn amazing for a face mask. I haven't used a crazy amount of face masks but this is one of the best. The mask is a great fit, not too big or small and the jelly textured mask is sandwiched between two thin sheets of plastic that you have to peel off. Peel off one side and then place the mask on your face before removing the other.

It really feels like "an octopus" on your face but in a good way. I actually woke up in the early morning for some minutes and this was clung onto my face exactly the same as when I put on it when I went to sleep! My skin was so soft and supple in the morning! 

Prori Aroma AC Moisture Gel Mist in Lavender!
Prori Aroma AC Moisture Gel Mist in Lavender!
Description and directions: This enriched gel mist has bee venom, propolis, balloon flower and other ingredients to soothe and treat skin with blemishes and other troubles. It also is infused with lavender oil and is meant to soothe the skin. You are meant to spray this 10 inches away from the face as often as needed throughout the day!

I've never really used any facial mists before so this was very interesting. I really enjoyed how fine the mist was and how the lavender scent was very light and pleasant. I first sprayed it too close to my face but after adjusting the distance, this spray covers the face very evenly and dries very quickly to a dry touch. It helps to prevent bare skin from getting oily for a short while but I can't tell if it can help with blemished skin. I really enjoy how this is so relaxing to use!

Seatree Syn-ake Essence!
Description and directions: This essence is meant to have youth preserving ingredients such as snake venom and hylaluronic acid to maintain and repair the skin. It is recommended for all skin types and is suppose to help with all around skin issues. 

I've been using this product for almost every night for two weeks and I have to say it's a very light product. In all senses, it's light textured and doesn't really deeply enrich or moisturize the skin as it is an essence. I like how it feels and absorbs and I think it really does help with puffiness on the face. My only complaint is the scent. It smells like dried seaweed and fresh cucumber which really isn't the most pleasant scent. It's sort of like the sea I guess but I would have prefer another smell!

Haruen Dorothy Haruen-S
Description and directions: A volcanic roller ball product that's meant to absorb excessive oil and grease by rolling it across the skin. It can be used on bare skin or after make up. Made of 100% volcanic rock it will mattify and keep make up looking fresher for longer!

After playing around with this product I realized it was double ended so it means you get two roller balls in one! It is important to note that this feels so cooling and so relaxing to rub on the face. I think this makes for an excellent facial massage tool to be honest. I did use this on bare skin and although I can't see that my skin is much more mattified I have tested this with something moist and the rock really does absorb the liquid completely like magic! 

I can't say that this will help with long term skin problems as I assume all the grease and moisture is absorbed into the rock which you apply on your skin again and again. So there will be a time that you'd have to throw this away. Otherwise this is a neat gadget to try but I use it more for the relaxing/messaging properties than for mattifying.

Milk Dress Bohr-effect carboxy gel
Milk Dress Bohr-effect carboxy gel
Description and directions: This two step facial mask is meant to deep clean pores and extract bacteria and firm and tighten sagging skin. It's mean to help contour and sculpt the face and over time to improve the condition of your skin. To use, first apply the gel mask onto your cleansed face and then place the natural paper mask onto the face over the gel and then you are to apply another layer of the gel onto the paper mask and to leave it on for 10-20 minutes before rinsing off.

This is the only product of the box I haven't used yet but it looks very promising. I really like how the mask is made of natural mulberry pulp, something which I've never seen before.  I don't doubt that this will be soothing to the skin and hopefully help to cleanse pores but I think this one use mask set will not be enough to see results! Continual usuage of such a product would show results so for those interested this should be selling on Memebox's online shop!

Ladykin Vanpir Dark Repair Cream
Description and directions: This cream is 'clinically proven' to brighten skin and restore luminosity and help to protect the skin from further discoloration. It's a moisturizer with melanin-inhibiting properties meant to brighten dull and uneven skin. It also contains anti-aging properties to reduce fine lines. You are suppose to apply a small amount all over the face in the morning and night.

This cream firstly smells amazing! Like the perfect light but rich classic smelling perfume which is something I seriously enjoy. I love scented products and this one is perfect! The texture of this cream is a dense smooth cream, it goes on very well and absorbs into the skin very quickly leaving your skin cool feeling. 

I personally haven't seen major improvements in the short time I've used this but this definitely is very moisturizing and soothing to use. I really hope that it helps to prevent my laugh lines from looking prominent and helps with the slight pigmentation on my cheeks. I've already made a dent in this tub and hope to finish it up eventually. 

Memebox Special #32: OMG 2
Paid: Sent to me from Memebox! (This box retailed for $29 USD)  This box is currently sold out on their website and so is the OMG 3!

Recommend: Yes, for those who would like some new and interesting skincare bits this box would be for you! There is a good range of skin care products and all these are focused on moisturizing, enriching and improving the skin quality. Otherwise if you're more interested in make up I'd get a different box!

Repurchase: Maybe, although I love trying new skincare and that has been my goal this year I personally am more interested in whitening skincare/products and make up! I would totally be keen on buying other boxes from them! I've got my eyes on the brightening and correcting box as well as some of their make up boxes!

Bottom line: A box filled with lovely full sized products meant to sooth, moisturize and promote a better skin quality! This is meant for those who want skin enriching products to relax and pamper your complexion!

Memebox coupon code: AZKQC7  (valid for October for $5 off any order, one use per person)

Thank you!  


  1. Such a cool box! all the products look interesting and not packed with just sachets of samples.


  2. So glad you have finally try a Memebox! Wish they had sent you a makeup box instead so you'd be more hooked on ;) This isn't the kind of boxes I'd go for, but even thou I prefer makeup over skincare, their skincare boxes never disappoint me! Love the gel mist you got!

  3. Ohh I love that all of the products you received came full-sized! ^ u ^


  4. wowww..such an interesting box for skin...all products look good...i would love to try this box. Great review honey...kisses 😃

  5. Memebox have been receiving a lot of hyped lately, also here in Germany! But I just unsubscribed my last beauty box subscription last month since I think now I prefer to just buy what I really want and really need with the amount of money I paid for the subs boxes..
    This memebox seems to be always generous with its content though, very nice alternative to try on different korean brands esp the less known ones ^^

  6. I really like the selection of products in this box. the design of the Vanpir cream is funny and I'm curious for the "octupus" mask XD Thanks for the retailled review.

  7. Haha I love that Memebox has put the 'kookiest and unusual'
    products in the box! I gotta say I'm pretty intrigued by the
    content! The mask and the Seatree essence is something
    that I'd love to try! Xx

  8. I haven't heard of any of these brands before! The skin products sound sooo nice though. I have't ever used a face mist before either. I never really saw the need to, but now I'm really interested in it! The roller ball sounds pretty awesome though.

  9. I've tried a few boxes and have had either great boxes, or pretty meh boxes... I received OMG 3 and didn't find it too OMG either. Like, a little weird I guess but really not crazy. All useable products though, so it's not a complete waste!

    Love that all the brands here are all out of my radar :) Thank you for sharing them, Sharlynn!

  11. OMG that rock thingy :o WANTTTTTTTT
    GAHH, that's kinda genius, I wonder how many times you can use it for before it gets yucky but man that's SO COOL!

  12. I had a memebox OMG box before and though I wasn't OMG, all the skincare products were interesting and fun to use! The rollerball looks pretty nifty!

  13. Seatree syn-ake looks very intriguing!! :D The volcanic rock thing...never seen that before but it makes sense I guess!!

  14. That face mask looks so interesting. I've never quite seen one like that before. Ah, it must have been fun to discover all these new brands!

  15. I SO need to get a Meme Box. I've heard so many great things about it, and I really want to try more Asian skincare! Thanks for sharing your review!

  16. Looks like a great box. I unsubscribed from all my boxes because I started to get overwhelmed by too many products but this Meme box definitely looks like a worthy investment x Make Me Up Mandy

  17. I got this box and was so fascinated by the volcanic rollerball!
