Last month Memebox unveiled their Jackpot Box – an exciting chance for people to get a box of varying value for the same price of $32 (£19). Memebox promised that each box would be bursting with iconic Korean Beauty skincare staples, makeup must-haves, hair and body essentials, and other K-beauty breakthroughs. Everyone would take home a box worth at least $155 upwards, with one lucky first prize winner bagging a box worth $1000!
Unsurprising the boxes sold out within a couple of hours – then began the impatient wait until dispatch day on 2nd September when the boxes began winging their way to us!
Mine arrived last week and until receipt I was totally in the dark to what box I would receive. Upon opening my box I was mega excited to find I was one of only 30 people who won a 3rd place box worth an impressive $371 (according to Memebox’s calculations) although when I totalled everything up I found the value exceed $450! The box was heavy and jam packed with Korean beauty products, including some cult IOPE skincare. I felt like Christmas had come early as I eagerly unboxed all the items! There was a definite focus on serious skincare with this box, which suited me to a tee, but I was pleased to find a few items that deviated from that theme slightly. I will take you through the contents below.
IOPE Essential Facial Oil 30ml ($90) The organic argan and macadamia oils within this facial oil deliver deep nourishment and hydration to the skin. IOPE Essential Tone & Wrinkle Care Eye Cream 25ml ($86) Enriched with shea butter and jojoba oil, this moisturising eye cream will fill out fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

MEMEBOX Memebrush 6 piece brush set ($36) These beautifully soft brushes are conveniently packaged in a sleek black glittery travel case. With six brushes this sets contains all you need and are perfect for your holiday bag or simply for touching up makeup on the move.
If I may have a couple of minor gripes it would just be that the selection didn’t include either a cleanser, toner or mask. My box is also sadly lacking the cuteness factor Korean beauty products are so often famed for. Teeny complaint aside however I am absolutely ecstatic with this box. Given that all I expected was a 9th place box, which with a $155 value would’ve been brilliant, this is an awesome surprise! I will use every product in the box and, soon entering my mid-thirties, i’m pleased there are some quality anti-aging products included.
