The Best Korean Beauty Boxes

If you are like me who loves cosmetics and skin care products, you probably have heard of these BEAUTY BOXES. Beauty Boxes are mostly subscription boxes that contain beauty goods such as skin care products, make-up, perfumes, and many more. The boxes may contain samples or full size products.

These boxes are sent to you every month depending on your subscription type (one-time, 3 months, 6 months, and so on..) Some boxes offer customization which contents are tailored according to your style.

Started a few years ago, the Beauty Boxes immediately became a hot topic amongst beauty brand lovers and beauty bloggers. They love how you can test a product before buying it. There are also beauty boxes that don’t require subscription.
This post will be all about boxes which offers Korean beauty products. Below are some of the Korean beauty boxes I know. Check out below list and see what they have to offer.



This the most popular among the Korean beauty boxes around. They offer samples or full-sized products. They have 3 types of boxes to choose from – The original Memebox, Superbox or Luckybox. Memebox also lets you buy their boxes of previous months.
