Unboxing: Memebox Special #67 Blackout!

I'll be honest. When I first saw this box I just saw the picture I was just thinking charcoal masks and that's what prompted me to order this box. However I read the description after the fact and got a little skeptical that there would just be a lot of black makeup products in this box. Let's see how this turns out..

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 Memebox Special #67 Blackout! which is a box full of everything black. Pretty vague. This is a special box so it isn't guaranteed that all of the products would be full sized but they were! This cost $19 plus shipping.
If intensity is your game, take the challenge with this Blackout! Box. Say bye-bye to Miss Plain Jane and turn up the drama in your beauty routine with this Black Box! Packed with all things beauty in the color black that you can imagine, you’ll be surprised at how much intensity this awesome box brings! 

This box shipped December 2nd and landed on my doorstep December 3rd! Fun fact: my box traveled from Korea to Alaska and then California! I don't know why I got such a kick out of that.

B&SOAP Black Block | Retail: $24 (FULL SIZE)
After my grand discovery of African Black Soap I am a huge fan of bar soaps for washing my face! This stuff looks great, it's made from charcoal, rosemary and olive oil, basically all stuff that is great for oily skin and works to detoxify and brighten your face. I'll keep this in my stash right now while I finish up my other bar soap but I'm really excited about this and it fits in great with the theme!
Honest Clinic Black Hole Spot | Retail: $26 (FULL SIZE)
This is a really interesting product, it's a night care spot gel that contains a special A+BHA complex that claims to melt away dead skin cells and impurities while you sleep. Basically a really powerful acne spot treatment that also brightens and evens up skin tone. I'm always in the market for a wonder spot treatment so this is another product I'm stoked about.
Tosowoong Black-Head Nose Pack | Retail: $6 (FULL SIZE)
Most people don't jump for joy from pore strips but I do since I use them religiously and they can be quite expensive even at the drugstore. I have a healthy collection of Korean pore strips now and I'm thrilled to welcome these. They are sort of a funny shape, kind of like a three leaf clover but it looks like this would fit more snugly into the contours of a nose so this might actually work better!
L'CRET Hair Color Keeper Treatment Shampoo | Retail: $42 (FULL SIZE)
The last thing is also the high value item in this box which is this shampoo for color treated hair. I have never dyed my hair before so this definitely isn't for me, but luckily almost everyone I know has so it will be easy to find a new home for this guy. This is a color-keeping blend of sunflower seed, babassu seed oil, panthenol and silk protein to protect hair from fading or sun bleaching while delivering healthy moisture and oil balance. It sounds great, just not for me.

In the end this box contained four full sized items and I will use them all except for one. I haven't opened the shampoo or the spot treatment yet but I must admit I will be slightly disappointed if their contents isn't black. However the packaging for everything is black so for now I can say this fit the theme perfectly. I paid $19 (plus shipping) and got back $98 worth of products. If you subtract the value of the shampoo (since I won't use it), it's still a healthy (but significantly lower) $56 valuation. I'm on the fence how I feel about this box, but since it was one of the cheaper boxes and I will use everything, despite not being crazy excited over anything I still liked it but I can see how this could be a potential miss for some.
