Unboxing: Memebox Special #77 My Lovely Boutique

Memebox has the Cute Wishlist series in which the first box was a smash hit and the boxes following that one have been disappointing, but of course they still decided they knew cute so they released this box shortly after the My Cute Wishlist #4 as another cute themed box. I must say it did a marginally better job than MCW but overall I still feel a little let down.
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 #77 My Lovely Boutique which is suppose to be another box about everything cute. Even though there are no guarantees for full sized products there ended up being a total of six products and five of them were full sized! This cost $23 plus shipping.
Memebox is our name and cute is our game. Warning. If you’re a sucker for cute and exquisite packaging (with the added bonus of super effectiveness!) and love the enchantment of discovering swoon-worthy Korean cosmetics, you’re in for a really, really big treat. The Memebox beauty junkies took extra time and care to make sure that this magical box explodes with all things cute and lovely – complexion confections, skin care sensations, dreamy delights, lust-worthy lovables and much, much more! With a killer combo of quality brands and formulas, innovative beauty solutions, and drool-worthy packaging, this box will literally get you weak at the knees with just one look! Treat yourself to a little indulgence with extreme cute overload!

This box shipped November 19th and landed on my doorstep December 1st.
Etude House My Castle Hand Cream in Forever Rose | Retail: $7 (FULL SIZE)
We will start with the cutest thing in this box. It's a hand cream shaped like a castle!! This is the best thing for desk decoration ever, however I received the worst scent. I'm not a rose fan and would have been happier with any other scent (especially Sweet Cookie!). Luckily my mom is a huge rose fan so this will get gifted to her. It's adorable and is the epitome of cute.
TheYeon Jeju Hallabong Energy Pack | Retail: $6 (FULL SIZE)
Shara Shara Only You Necklace Lip Balm No. 1 Juicy Peach | Retail: $34 (FULL SIZE)
Now on to things that someone might find cute but I'm just like meh. First we have a tacky necklace that doubles as a lip balm. Who would wear this besides a preteen?? I'm not sure what to do with this but it's not something I'm keeping, that's for sure. What looks like smiling baby faces on fruit is slightly disturbing. However this brand has been cropping a lot lately in my boxes and I'm also a fan of these little yogurt masks so I'm excited to use these. I like putting these in the fridge so it feels extra nice on my face. Also I like that it's a pack for four that addresses different skin concerns, so despite not being cute, this gets a thumbs up from me.
Shara Shara Natural Shining BB SPF36 PA++ | Retail: $16 (FULL SIZE)
Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Cinema City | Retail: $30
I think it's odd to put two similar products in a box, but let's talk about cuteness factor first. The Shara Shara, creepy doll person, not cute. The other one dinosaur climbing a building um YES! I LOVE dinosaurs, like borderline stalker obsession, so I'm in love with this little tube! I haven't even used the product yet and even if it doesn't work for me I will still keep it just for this adorable dino. The Shara Shara though is finally a BB cream I can use! It doesn't have a grey tinge to it and is a bit more sheer. It's more of a shine so it works to give your face a very nice dewy look.
Shara Shara Acerola Moist Oil Balm | Retail: $17 (FULL SIZE)
This is the third Shara Shara product in this box and it is NOT cute! I'm not a fan of these hard body balms, I like the creamy ones that spread really easily but there are a lot of good ingredients so I'll try this out on my extra rough spots like heels and elbows and see how it works out. But this packaging, like the product, is so ordinary, I don't understand why it's in this box.

The only truly cute and exquisite item in this box was the castle hand cream. Everything else came in very ordinary packaging, I guess the necklace could be exquisite but it's not my style and I'm not a fan of the concept so that was a fail for me. Like I said in the MCW unboxing, I think I will steer away from cute boxes from now on because Memebox has a very different understanding of what cute means.
