Memebox: Superbox #23 Summer Meeting

Memebox

Beauty needs during the summer are a little different than other parts of the year, with heat, humidity, and sunshine causing different reactions with my skin. When I saw that Memebox was offering a box curated with summer needs in mind, I was quick to make a purchase. The cost of this box was $32 + $6.99 shipping.

01. Finco UV Control Sun Block SPF 50+
60 ml || Estimated value: $54

Finco UV Control Sun Block SPF 50+

Sunscreen is essential for me at all times, but especially during the summer. My skin is fair and burns very easily. The high SPF will be great to use on my face and other areas that burn easily, like my ears.

02. Hope Girl Power Volume Waterproof Mascara 
7 g || Estimated value: $22

Hope Girl Power Volume Waterproof Mascara

This mascara is amazing! It separates and defines my lashes, giving me nice, full volume. I also love that it’s waterproof, which is essential when spending time in the pool (or just sweating in the high humidity!). The brush is unique, with a twist to the pattern of the bristles.

03. CNKCOS Transformer Solution
200 ml || Estimated value: $20

CNKCOS Transformer Solution

This product was originally two liquids that could be mixed to form a gel. Unfortunately, that action happened before I could get pictures. It seemed like sort of a novelty process, not really making a difference on the performance of the product. The gel is great for red, irritated, or sunburned skin.

04. borntree Bloom Mineral Avenue Air Fit Sun CC
15 g || Estimated value: $21

borntree Bloom Mineral Avenue Air Fit Sun CC

I think both BB and CC creams are great for summer. I don’t like to feel as if my skin is layered with tons of makeup, so this is a great alternative to traditional liquid foundation. It provides light, even coverage, which gives a more natural look. The packaging on this is lovely as well.

05. W. Holic Glutathione Whitening Essence
50 ml || Estimated value: $43

W. Holic Glutathione Whitening Essence

This whitening essence is purported to make your skin soft, smooth, and also help you to emit a radiant glow. I’m excited to give it a try as soon as I use up some of the ampoules I have already been using.

Total value: $160

This was a well-curated box and included such a great mix of summer essentials.

    This box looks fun! I’m always looking for new subscriptions to try.
    I have super dry skin so I think my summer everyday essential would be my Maybelline BB cream.
    This is my first time visiting but I will back for more beauty tips!

    • Thanks. I have combo skin that gets incredibly dry in the winter, so I can sympathize. I have been wearing Supergoop CC cream. I haven’t tried the Maybelline BB cream, but I’ll have to check it out next time I’m at the drug store. 🙂

  • I’ve never heard of Memebox but I may have to give it a try! This box looks awesome with so many great things!

    • There are tons of different boxes, so I’m sure you could find something you’d love!

  • Modern June

    I have always wanted to try bbcream! I love this box it looks like you get great stuff!

    • You should give it a try. There are lots of great options, including from the drugstore. I like to wear it when I don’t have time to do a bunch of makeup or in instances where I sometimes go without–like running errands. 🙂

  • I love your photography and it looks like you got some great items in your box. Yay

    • Thanks so much! I always find myself moving around in the yard on sunny days with my tripod and a bag of products. I try to find different places, but the pool deck is my favorite to take product photos.
