Unboxing: Superbox #55 Free From Oil & Trouble #4

I hate that you have to sign for all Memeboxes now it, kind of drives me crazy because there isn't always someone home to do it! If I could only teach my dog how to do it...

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 the Superbox #55 Free From Oil & Trouble #4 which is a box packed with all things oil fighting! This was one of the first boxes I ordered because I definitely suffer from oily/combo skin so I was interested to see how some Korean skincare goodies would do against it all! This cost $32 + $6.99 shipping for a total of $38.99. This was definitely a little pricier than I usually go for but I'm really glad I did it!
From the website:

Tried and true—our Free From Oil & Troubles #4 is filled with the newest and best trouble-fighting and oil controlling products! Turn down the shine and control excessive sebum with our Free From Oil & Troubles #4! This is the ultimate go-to box for covering those pesky little pimples, treating blemishes, and keeping skin matte all day! Our oil absorbing products are proven to work-fast, so that your skin is left refreshed, smooth, blemish free, and healthy-looking!
This box shipped September 26th and arrived on my doorstep October 15th. This actually got here faster than another box that shipped earlier which is interesting.
insobeau Acnic Blemish Spot Solution | Retail Value: $20
This is one of the spoiler for the box and pretty interesting. This little bottle has pink powder at the bottom at a liquid solution on top. You need to make sure to use it only when the two layers are separate and apply it by dipping in a cotton swab to pick up the powder and dabbing it directly onto blemishes. The powder controls the oil during the night and the liquid will help reduce redness and remove dead skin cells. It does leave little pink spots all over your face so this is strictly a nighttime treatment unless that's the look you're going for. I have quite a few spot treatments in action right now but this one will definitely get used eventually! This sounds (and looks) suspiciously similar to the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion that I came dangerously close to ordering the other day so I'm excited because I've heard rave reviews about it.
Lindsay Linzy Egg Pack | Retail Value: $12
HOW CUTE IS THIS???!!! I'm so obsessed with this adorable packaging of an egg carton and egg shaped soaps! You seem to use them separately but there is a white egg which is made from egg whites and witch hazel which deep cleans the skin of impurities that clog pores, and a red clay egg that contains red clay and NMF complex that will tighten up enlarged pores. I'm kind of not crazy about how I can't put the eggs back into the carton after use because they will just turn it into a soggy mess so for now I will just let them sit in their cute little packaging and admire them.
Pro You Aroma AC Cream | Retail: $54
Usually I'm wary of cream moisturizers because my skin usually rebels against them but I've been using one from a Memebox that my skin has just been drinking up, and especially since this is one made for oily skin I'm exciting to try it out. This works to not only moisturize but to tighten up enlarged pores and control the sebum level in skin. I'm definitely excited to try this out and it will hop into the rotation soon!
The Skin House Dr Clear Magic Toner | Retail: $25
I've been on the hunt for a new toner to use in the mornings so I'm excited to test this guy out! Made from tea tree extracts which is fabulous for oily skin so I think this may be just what I've been looking for! I must say I'm not a huge fan of spray toners because I feel like I eat a lot of toner which kind of grosses me out, but it definitely does use the product more sparingly and saving product is always good!
Bennet Herb & Bee AC Control Serum | Retail: $38
Before Memeboxes serums weren't even on my radar but now they have found themselves wedged between toner and moisturizer morning and night! This one will be a great one for the morning to help with oil control throughout the day and it's interesting because it contains bee venom which is an ingredient I haven't come across yet!
ideeB Goodbye Oil Pact | Retail: $12
This was the only item I wasn't head over heels over simply because it's a blotting powder and throughout the day I never think to blot. The packaging is compact though so maybe I will throw it into my purse and see if I can get in the habit. I do blot once in awhile at the end of a work day if I know I'm going somewhere directly afterwards so maybe this will do better if it lived in my car.

I really REALLY like this box! I will use every single item in it and I can't wait to see what it can do for my skin! I've incorporated some K-beauty skincare into my routine already and my skin is looking great and feeling so soft so I'm excited for products actually targeted toward my issues. I must also say this box smells amazing! I can't describe it it's a little floral sweet like blossoms, either way I'm a huge fan and I might keep the box just for the smell because I can't figure out which product the scent is coming from! In the end I paid $35.99 for this box and received $102 in products!
