I was going to start my discussion of Memebox when my first box arrived, however a box has shown up in their shop that I just had to jump on getting and wanted to spread the message of it to all of you lovely people.
What is Memebox?
“Memebox curates only the most trusted, best-loved Korean beauty products at everyday prices. An extremely competitive industry, Korean cosmetics are renowned for their unprecedented quality developed through cutting-edge technology. At the forefront of the industry, Memebox is determined to deliver the enchantment of discovery through effortless experiences, at prices you’ll never say no to. ….Order from Memebox only when you want to, as often as you want to. In addition to our box series, Memeshop carries full-sized products featured in previous Memeboxes, offering easy access to Korean cosmetic trends.” from us.memebox.com
While they do sell individual products, a large bulk of their sales I'd imagine comes from their subscription boxes. They offer two types of boxes:
Memebox is curated by our experts in Korea to offer you the widest selection of the hottest Korean beauty products. Memeboxes contains 4 - 7 full-sized items and deluxe samples, and contents vary from makeup, skin care, hair and body products.
The Superbox is specially designed to cater to beauty box fanatics looking for full-sized products. Each Superbox has its own theme and purpose, and contents in the box are carefully selected to fit the box’s theme.
While they are a subscription service, it is not monthly. You get to pick and choose what boxes you want to order. Assuming they're not sold out by the time you get there ;) Often their more popular boxes sell out quickly, depending on the theme or brand. The boxes are built around one particular theme: sometimes a brand, an ingredient, a holiday, item popularity, or an all purpose theme. This makes is different from other makeup subscription services in which you have no choice in what you may be getting. Sometimes they will give spoilers for what products will be found in the box. Typically when the boxes go up for order, they don't ship for two months (you do pay for them at the time of purchase so makes budgeting easier) so you do have to wait awhile for them to be sent out but the shipping times are quiet reasonable. And their products are a wide range of beauty products, not just makeup: you can find skin care, foot care, and nail polish. This is what makes Memebox unique: you can pick boxes around things that you like or you can roll the dice and go for something random. You get a better sense of control over what you're buying and whether you buy a Membox or Superbox they will be mostly full-sized products, not just a box full of cute sample size products. From what I've seen in other reviews, the boxes do contain a card (in English) that explains what the products are, how to use them, and retail suggested value. This is extremely helpful as the products are otherwise in Korean.

Skinfood is a WONDERFUL brand that I had the chance of using a bit of when I was in Korea so I was super excited to get the chance to use more of their products once again. The packaging is cute (but not super girly girl cute), have wonderful scents, and their products are affordably effective. Plus their stores in Korea are cute as well ^^; Unlike most of their boxes, this one is shipping out quickly after announcement. I have ordered this for myself (I imagine the box will quickly sell out) so if you would like to experience with me the wonderfulness of this amazing box, click on this link and order it for yourself. Or if you want to try something a little different, check out this or this.
