Memebox Superbox 78 Dirty Gal review, unboxing
By the end of November 2014, Memebox toned down. They stopped releasing new boxes. The boxes that were being sent out were a tad meh and did not match up to the quality and value of the boxes that had come in the first half of 2014. There was a bit of a wag in the tail of the year, and some Christmas and Boxing Day special boxes were out, but nothing regular.
The Dirty Gal Superbox 78 was one of the last Memeboxes I ordered. The USP was that this box would contain dirty but fun beauty ingredients. I expected mud packs, clay-based beauty products, bifida bacteria (a big hit in super-serums such as Lancome Advanced Genefique or Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair), even - ugh - those worm dropping thingies that had featured in some Memebox I had the good fortune to avoid.

Check out the contents of the Memebox Dirty Gal Superbox 78:



  1. Dr MJ Real Mucin Restore Cream 50g
  2. B&Soap Mamie Blue mask 130g
  3. Esthetic House Mayo Pack 120ml
  4. Pure Smile Muddy Girl 15g x 2
  5. Cleomee Natural Donkey Oil 80ml

Dr MJ Real Mucin Restore Cream 50g

This cream contains snail mucin. Now if we had not received snail-based products in several other Memeboxes before, or if snail mucin was already not a cult ingredient in Korean skincare, this would have fit the theme of the Dirty Gal box. But what is special here? Snail mucin-based products have been sent out in pretty much every other Memebox so far and I fail to see how this cream makes this box "dirty". 

B&Soap Mamie Blue mask 130g

Granted, this mask is blue and "Smurf-like" (which is not dirty). But so is Soap & Glory's No Clogs Allowed, a face pack I L.O.V.E. The ingredients of the Mamie Blue mask include peppermint and evening primrose oil. What is this mask doing in the "Dirty Gal" box?

Esthetic House Mayo Pack 120ml

Don't you hate it when you place a shop order and buy something, and then it turns up in a beauty box the following week? I just bought this already and now I have two. Ah well, the more to use up. I have applied egg mayo from the fridge to my hair before and my hair thanked me, so this will be good to use. Is it "dirty", though? No way! Mayo is supposed to be edible.

Pure Smile Muddy Girl 15g x 2

Containing white clay and mud - and pearl extracts - these face packs are the only products in this box that actually suit the theme.

Cleomee Natural Donkey Oil 80ml

This contains EGF donkey oil (Epidermal Growth Factor), annatto oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, macadamia oil, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil. It does not contain parabens, artificial colours, benzophenone, mineral oil and phenoxyethanol. EGF is good to help skin heal, if you have wounds or burns. But there is a fear that overuse can lead to excessive cell division. This is a product that would have suited one of the OMG boxes more than this one. Memebox has sent out "donkey oil" products several times in previous boxes.

Summary

Not my favourite Memebox, but not the worst. Very few of these things are really "dirty" - I would have considered some of these apt if Memebox had not sent out similar products ad nauseam. We have seen snail and donkey oil-based skincare so many times that there is nothing new anymore. Only the mud packs were remotely suited to the theme of this box. Whatever happened to bifida or other "strange" ingredients? I hope Memebox picks up nicely from where they left off, in 2015.

  1. Kind of sad that this wasn't a "wow" box, nor did it really fit the theme. :(

  2. The Donkey oil was in one of the OMG boxes. It is sad that they repeat so many products. I think they are running out of ideas.
