I have wanted to try out a subscription beauty box for a while now but with so many on the market I wasn’t sure which one I would like so of course I started looking up beauty blogs and came a cross www.whichbeautyboxuk.com Jainia blog is brilliant and if you are thinking of signing up to a beauty box you should really check her blog out.
After reading her review on Memebox www.memebox.com I decided this was for me so Memebox is the number one Korean beauty online retailer and there headquarters is in San Francisco this was the selling point to me I get to try loads of products that I can’t pick up in boots and they have loads of boxes to choose from so I decided to try out Super box #45 Korea’s Most Wanted but I didn’t read the fine print I do this a lot and this box won’t be ready to ship till the 29th August I think, so two days later www.whichbeatyboxuk.com had a review up about Meme Super box 36 pore care 3 and I had to have this box.
I have to admit a secret I am obsessed with blackhead when I done my beauty therapy course nearly every girl in the class was, we loved removing blackheads it gives you a strange satisfaction I have no idea why so when I read about a box all about pores I had to have it.
So the box arrived last week and I wanted to spend a week trying out all the products.
Memebox comes in a lovely pink box and you get a card with the details of the products as instructions on the products are in Korean so this was a bit of a problem for me as there must have been a printing mistake as the products did not match the instructions so I emailed Memebox and that day and bout one in the morning they emailed me over the instructions have to say brilliant customer service.
So I received SIX full size products for $40.99 including postage and I had a discount code of $5 which is 31.61 in euro first thing I noticed was how expensive all the products looked and I couldn’t wait to try them out.
- TOSOWOONG Deep Pore Foam Cleansing 100ml Full size product: 100ml, ($12)
The mild formula and abundant foams work to cleanse away all skin impurities, specifically targeting enlarged pores and sensitive, troublesome skin. Various plant extracts such as green tea, mulberry, and portulca extracts also helps clean, soothe, and deliver vitamins deep into the skin.
HOW TO USE
It’s best used with a pore brush. Take a reasonable amount of the foam cleanser onto the brush and massage gently into the skin. If without a pore brush, massage using your hands. Then rinse off with warm water.
I just happen to have a pore brush so I felt I got the full effect of the product it is a strong smell but I like that I would only use this maybe once a week as it is a bit drying on my skin but my skin was glowing and felt so clean after words.

Ok I was so excited to get my hands on this, this was a major selling point to me and I have tried this product about three times now lying on the sofa with cotton wool on my nose but nothing really happened but I am not ready to give up yet I think I need to find someone with a few more blackheads than me and see what happens.

I really liked this product now I didn’t see any blackheads pop out but my skin felt so clean like my pores have been really cleaned it did feel a bit strange as it feels like jelly on your skin but I love using this product.
I noticed a big difference in my skin over the last week now I don’t suffer with spots but I do have blackheads and I would get them around my nose and chin over the last week I feel there has been a difference and my skin looked clearer I stopped using pore strips years ago as they can sometimes damage your skin. I really liked this Memebox is
