Korean Beauty products have become quite popular recently. Idols and Korean actors have been becoming CF kings and queens while backing their favorite products. Outside of Korea K-beauty products have been popping up in department stores, cosmetics stores and even in your local drugstore. But what if you are unsure where to begin? With so many different types of products and colors, you may feel overwhelmed. Enter K-beauty boxes. Korean beauty boxes offer a variety of products for you to try without you feeling overwhelmed. Read on to find out the different types of boxes and what they have to offer.


MemeBox was launched in 2012 and considers themselves the best way to discover and purchase the newest Korean beauty products and skin care. One of their best sellers is the #BeginWithSkin box.  The box contains full-sized products and explicit directions on how to use each product. Box prices vary from $20 to $50. MemeBox currently only ships to the United States.
