Unboxing: Superbox #48 Daily Dose of Beauty

Another week another pink box to dive into. I'm a little over obsessed with my boxes to the point where they are marked on my calendar the dates they are suppose to ship! Recently I've read so many horror stories about Memeboxes getting lost or stuck in customs so my fingers are crossed that my boxes never do that! I'm trying to unbox these as soon as I get them in case anyone else is interested in the contents and want to order one themselves. These things sell out fast but they restock them often! I apologize for the pictures in advance, the lighting was bad but I only had a small window of time to get it done.

For those that don't know what I'm talking about Memebox is a Korean beauty non-subscription box that sells boxes of surprise products curated with different themes in mind straight from Korea! Like I mean your box is shipped to you FROM Korea! These are great deals because boxes typically run between $19 - $39 (there are more expensive ones) but the value of the boxes are usually double and often triple the price you pay! There are two main kinds of boxes:

Memebox: The original box comes with a mix of 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples.
Special: Like the original box it comes with 4-8 full sized products and deluxe samples but each of these boxes has its own theme for special occasions or events.
Superbox: Comes with their own theme and contains only full sized products.

This one is Superbox #48 Daily Dose of Beauty which featured a mix of pampering and makeup products with the curated theme for each day of the week. This one cost $29 + $6.99 shipping for a total cost of $35.99.

After the last box being purely makeup I was excited to receive one with some skincare goodies. I'll admit when I first got hooked I was more interested in the skincare than the makeup so this seemed like the perfect box to get a dose of both. This one shipped on August 28th and arrived on my doorstep on September 5th!! It got here so fast this time I'm really impressed!
First up for "Makeup Monday" is this Cheek Room Eye Shadow in Honey Pink. There was also an option to get a Gold one so I'm glad I got this color because it's definitely more my kind of color! It's very a shimmery but this is a great color that will work with most of the palettes I have. It looks champagne in the picture but I promise you it's a shimmery blush in real life.
Retail Value: $8
For "Treatment Tuesday" there is this set of Sally's box Delight Hydrogel Mask. These are three different sheet masks one is for firming, one for smoothing, and one for moisturizing. I usually don't like sheet masks because they are always too small but these look like a generous size and I'm looking forward to trying them out.
Retail Value: $13
Also for "Treatment Tuesday" they sent this D'ran Aqua Wonder Intensive Renewing Serum. First of all, this shade of blue is gorgeous! I've been on the hunt for a new nighttime serum and this seems perfect! It says the glacier water complex used in this delivers intensive moisture and nutrition that absorbs quickly and deeply into the skin.
Retail Value: $43
This Yu Choo By Me Steam Silk Hair Pack that came for "Weird Wednesday" is intriguing. At first I thought it was a leave in treatment which meant I was going to immediately pass on it but then I realized you're suppose to rinse it out, so I will definitely try this out! This is like a hat that is enriched with argan, olive and coconut oil that will have a steam effect on your hair to make it silky soft. Definitely something right up my alley!
Retail Value: $9
"Therapy Thursday" came with this Rawganic Jojoba Golden Oil which is another oil I have never worked with. It's targeted towards really dry skin so I'm not sure if this will be the best for my oily skin but possibly as a very swanky cuticle oil.
Retail Value: $4
Also for "Therapy Thursday" they chose this JoliBeBe Lip Treatment which I'm very excited about. I'm always looking for a richly moisturizing lip treatment for while I sleep so it will be interesting to see how this stacks up!
Retail Value: $8
The Corquis Bulgeum Lipstick in Campari Orange was what they picked for "Funky Friday". This is the first orange lipstick I've owned and I'll admit the packaging has me stumped as to how I actually get to the product. It's like a plastic cap over the actual lippy and I can't figure out if it comes off or if the product is suppose to squeeze through the little hole at the top? Anyways, this color I'm not too sure about, I don't think I can rock the orange lip trend but we will see if I ever figure out how to use this first!
Retail Value: $20
Finally for the "Wrinkle-free Weekend" there was this ProYou S Wrinkle SC Renewal Ampoule which is ridiculously expensive!! I'm definitely not on the anti-aging train yet but this bottle got snatched up gleefully by my mom and she is very excited to get to try such an expensive product.
Retail Value: $96

I still wasn't crazy about this box but I appreciated the wide range in brands. I felt like the skincare products were all more targeted at dry and mature skin which is not where I am right now and I'm not crazy about the lipstick color. However I paid $35.99 and got a box full of products worth $233!! Even though I wasn't in love with everything, I'm thrilled with the value I got out of this box and I definitely found some interesting things to try this weekend. If you're interested in picking up a box (or boxes!) you can use some of the coupon and discount codes below!
