MeMe Box Review: Oriental Medicine

Have you guys heard of MeMe Box? This was something I had barely seen reviewed until I recently received one of my own. MeMe Box is basically a monthly Korean beauty subscription box filled with beauty and skin care products. I have to admit, this was definitely unlike anything I had tried before!

Apparently MeMe Boxes always have a different theme. After I got my box, I assumed everyone must receive the same box every month. However, after watching some reviews on YouTube, I noticed how different boxes were sent out each month. For the month of July I received the "Oriental Medicine" box which contained mostly skin care with ingredients like ginseng, vitamins, and even mushrooms?!
Product #1 "D'ran Wonder Serum" ($30) - This seemed to be a beautifully packaged and high end facial serum. However, what concerns me is the fact that it says it is an all skin type/"whitening" serum? I know Korean beauty brands have a reputation for placing bleaching agents in their beauty products. Do you guys know if that's what "whitening" means? I only have to assume here!

Product #2 "Purederm Korean Herb Mask" ($2) - These were sheet masks for dry skin. One mask is for brightening and the other is for hydrating. The masks were actually pretty heavy and made of nice material like everything else in the box.

Product #3 "Donginbidam Red Ginseng Aqua Oil & Aqua Pack Essence" (no price listed) - I was initially very puzzled by these products. Since everything is in Korean (minus the index card) it took me a while to place everything together. These two products seem to be a two step facial oil system to lock in moisture.
Product #4 "Hanhui CC Cream" ($30) - This CC cream is self adjusting and claims to even out imperfections in the face. To me, it was more like a tinted moisturizer. The packaging, again, was super nice and it had a pleasant scent so I have to say this was the product I was most excited to get.

Product #5 "Chun Ji Heang Hand Cream" ($17) - I'm not a big fan of hand creams in general. This one felt very moisturizing but I find it hard to see myself using up such a large bottle. 

Overall, I think the box is a great deal if you're in the market to try Korean beauty and skin care products. I personally don't think this is my "jam". I just like to know a little bit more about my skin care before using it and it was hard for me to find more information over these products. Even if I did find information, it was obvious a lot of the reviews were bias or from the companies.

The MeMe Box prices are going to vary between $23-over $100. Like I said, I just don't see myself paying that much for products I can't actually know for sure what they do. What do you guys think? Have you tried MeMe Box?
*MeMe Box did send me this for consideration. All opinions remain my own.
