In April of this year (2014), I bought my first Memebox and it was Memebox in Banila Co.

Here's a picture of the box.
One of the products in the box was a sample pack of their CC it Radiant. For this post, I will focus on their CC in Melting Pact (far left in the picture).

Description on the pamphlet from Membox: Banila Co. It Radiant kit contains all the right products to create a radiant look with a dewy glow. The Brightening Cream hydrates while evening out the skin's texture. The CC cream naturally covers any blemishes and creates an even complexion. This CC in Melting Pact will give you a radiant and perfect finish.
Thoughts: When it comes to foundation and BB/CC creams, I tend to finish one product before I move onto another. I just think it's most sanitary safe that way. For that reason, it took some time to get to use this sample.
Here's a closer look at Light Beige. From researching online, the CC pact comes in two colors. I got the lighter of the two. The other one is Natural Beige.
It comes with a sponge applicator.
This is the side you use to pat onto your face.
Here's a swatch of the CC pact on my hand.
Here's how the CC pact looks on me.
Here's an overall look on me.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there was no noticeable scent. I even sniffed it with my nose and I didn't notice anything. Secondly, the consistency of the product is light to medium depending on how much you apply. When I first swatched it on my hand, I knew it was too light for my MAC NC30 skin. I was hoping it would oxidize onto my skin and I can work with it. Unfortunately, it was still light for my skin but the setting powder helped. I probably would match with Natural Beige more so than Light Beige. While searching online, I'm not too sure but it looks like Banila Co. stopped making this product. I'm not 100% sure and if it's true, why? Third, I had to use different methods to find the best possible way to apply this product. I first used the sponge applicator it came with. Since it's so tiny, I found it hard to pat it on my face. It was just time consuming. The second time I used this product I used my fingers. I noticed it wasn't the most smoothest application. Then I used a sponge applicator that looks like Beauty Blender but isn't. That was the most easiest method. If you do buy the full size pact, the sponge applicator it comes with should be good enough. With that said, the pact went on smoothly and covered my imperfections. Fourth, they recommended you use the Brightening Cream and base before the CC pact. I honestly think it didn't matter. I tried both with and without the products. It looked and felt the same. I will review the base in the future, but not the Brightening Cream.
Here's a picture of the Brightening Cream samples I received.
Here's a swatch of the Brightening Cream on my hand. It has a slight floral scent and it's more on a thicker gel-like cream. This is good for all skin types who wants to whiten their face. Unfortunately, I don't. Lastly, it stayed on all day except for my nose area. Since I produce the most oil on my nose, as well as, have huge pores that's where I noticed the least staying power. This product would be great for normal to dry skin individuals.

* Banila Co.; well known brand in Korea.
* No scent.
* Comes with a well-made sponge applicator.
* Smooth application.
* Light to medium coverage.
* Covers the pores.
* Great for normal to dry skin individuals.
* Lasts all day.

* Hard to find in stores.
* Comes in two shades; Light Beige and Natural Beige.
* Not sanitary safe; need to re-use the sponge applicator and re-dip onto the pact.

Would repurchase: Most likely no.
