Unboxing: Memebox Special #44 Very Berry

Meme addiction is getting bad. I'm losing storage space rapidly so my usual morning routine of just four steps (toner, moisturizer, eye roller, and spot treatment) has started taking on some additional products in order to work my way through all these amazing skincare goodies! I think I'm putting a hold on Memeboxes for now seeing as I still have about eight coming towards me!

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! 

This one is the Special #44 Very Berry which is a box packed with all things berry! I was expecting all skincare so I was surprised to find a makeup item included! I purchased this box in a value set so I got to pay one shipping for two boxes PLUS a free upgrade to express shipping! So the box was $29 + $3.45 for shipping for a total cost of $32.45.
From the website:

Berries, berries, berries! The beauty benefits that berries offer are endless! 
This Very Berry box is jam-packed with all sorts of scrumptious berry infused beauty goodies that not only offer health benefits, but also extend their benefits to the skin and body! Bursting with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, plus collagen inducing compounds, these yummy fruits neutralize free radicals that lead to skin cell damage, and increase the collagen and elastin levels in skin and body for the look of healthier, more vibrant skin!
This sensational Very Berry Box is a dream come true for all you berry-holics! Plus, the delish scent is an added bonus! 
This box shipped October 21st and arrived on my doorstep October 22nd. Seriously I'm spoiled by express shipping! I love these value sets because there's that free upgrade to express and shipping is literally overnight FROM Korea!!
Skin CRONies Aronia Moisture Cream | Retail: $63 (FULL SIZE)
This was the only spoiler for the box and I detect no delicious berry scent at all! This is supposedly make of chokeberries (are they making up berries here?!) and suppose to have a pink color but it's just beige to me. This is one of those finishing creams and it feels extremely hydrating. I like how luxe the packaging looks and will definitely use this eventually.
Konad Niju Blueberry Moisture Hand Cream | Retail: $6 (FULL SIZE)
Here's a secret: blueberries are my least favorite berries! Berry hating aside, this at least has a very distinctive berry scent. I'm getting quite a collection of hand creams now but good thing it is approaching winter so I leave these things everywhere I could possibly go and I get good use out of them.
Swanicoco Super Brightening Hydro Solution | Retail: $33 (FULL SIZE)
This is bizarre, nothing I've ever seen before! It's two tubes full of solutions, #1 is for repairing and brightening while #2 is an extra radiance-boosting formula. Is it just me or does radiance and brightening mean the same thing to other people too....anyways....You use this by mixing the two solutions together you can use whatever amount depending on what you think your skin needs but it's important to never use #2 alone! Why you ask me, I don't know but when packaging is in a foreign language I will follow the instructions! This supposedly contains Acai berries but again, where is the berry smell?? They are kind of like syringes you pump the bottom and the serum squeezes out from the top. Interesting.
Reinplatz Essence Mask in Mullberry Essence | Retail: $2 (FULL SIZE)
What's a Memebox without a sheet mask? I'm glad I didn't get the blueberry one. I have quite a collection of sheet masks at this point and I really need to start using them!
Borntree Vita Berry Cleansing Foam | Retail: $48 (FULL SIZE)
WHERE IS THE BERRY SMELL??? This is made of acai berries and raspberry but I still don't detect that burst of sweetness. Regardless, I love face cleansers so I'm fine with adding another to the stash.
e Choice Fall In Love Berry Body Lotion | Retail: $3 (FULL SIZE)
Made of blueberry and cranberry this is a body lotion. I hate getting lotions but I've been suffering some dry skin lately so I've been really packing it on at night and going through lotions quite fast so this will be good to throw in the mix.
Yadah Lovely Lip Tint Stick in Cherry Punch | Retail: $10 (FULL SIZE)
I was pleasantly surprised by receiving a makeup item in this box! The other option was for a strawberry pink so I'm pleased I got the red cherry option instead. The color is sheer making it perfect for daily use.

A little underwhelming. This box was semi disappointing in that nothing had a serious berry scent and that the products were just kind of ordinary. I feel like a few of these were a slight stretch to be considered berry. There are so many berry products out there I just think they could have done a lot better job putting this together! I did like that everything was full sized (this was a Special box and full size isn't guaranteed) so paying $32.45 for $165 worth of products! Not a bad valuation but overall it was just a mediocre box.
