Beauty box subscriptions are the highlight of my month. They make checking the mail way more fun--especially when I'm expecting bills--and they also introduce me to products from new (and new to me) brands.

Actually, I found my summer 2014 signature fragrance in a beauty box! Smell Bent's St. Tropez Dispenser; it was in PopSugar's May Must Have Box.

Several months ago, I happened upon Memebox (pronounced "Me me box"), an international Korean beauty mailer. Unlike other monthly subscription beauty boxes, Memebox is delivered on an "as wanted" basis. Prices range from $15 to $78, but most boxes are between $20 and $40, which is pretty typical for a beauty box that features full-size products.

As for the different types of Memeboxes, there are A TON, including the standard Memebox Global, as well as special edition Memeboxes. The global and special edition Memeboxes feature four to eight full-size products and deluxe samples. There's also a SuperBox--stocked exclusively with full-size goodies--and a Lucky Box filled with the most popular items from the standard Memebox and the SuperBox.

I'm going to take you through an unboxing of the $23 Lucky Box 5. (I had a coupon and only paid $14.99.)

Prices listed are what the item I received was worth based on the full-size retail price.

O& Soap Berry Bubble Cleanser, 100 mL, $25

This stuff smells so light and fresh, and it works perfectly as a follow-up cleanser after my nightly oil cleansing method.

Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint #2 in Red, 1.5 mL, $.50

I am totally into these Korean lip tints: The color is super intense, especially for a product that, at full-size, goes for $3.

LIH Tea Tree 90 Essence, 20 mL, $12.80

I've incorporated tea tree oil into my regimen over the last six months and was happy to get this product. It's made from 90% tea tree extract and also includes sea buckthorn. It's not as strong-smelling as my straight up tea tree oil, so that's nice.

BIO Medi-curing Mask -- Aqua Dressing, 20mL, $3

I've yet to use this, but I'm a fan of these sheet masks.

Dr. G Bio-RTX Mentor Cream for Damaged Skin, 20mL, $14

I haven't used this product enough to tell a difference yet, but I really dig the smell and the texture. It aims to repair skin damage caused by sun exposure and the environment.

Dear by Enprani Bounce Cheese Cream, 30 mL, $14

I love this for three reasons: 1.) It's simply called Dear. 2.) The description reads like a Miss America speech. 3.) Anything that alludes to cheese is fine by me.

Miguhara B.P Cream, 6mL, $7.40

I actually had no idea that B.P. cream was a thing! In case it's new to you, too, B.P. cream is a BB cream/primer combo. This one is oil-free, has a creamy consistency, and blends seamlessly. The item pictured is 3mL, but I received two of them in the box.

Dr. Jart V7 Eye Serum, 15mL, $38

As a major fan of Dr. Jart, I was happy-dance-excited to get this eye serum in my box! And the fact that it's full-size puts me over the moon. It's made from a complex of seven vitamins and helps nix dark circles.

Overall, I am impressed with this box. The total content value is $115, which is $100 less than I actually spent. Even if I had paid the full $23, I'd still be super happy. And who knows? Maybe one of these items will become part of my daily routine.
