I recently noticed something happening quite frequently. Other than Memebox drastically overestimating the value of many of their items, and selling them for FAR too much in their own shop, other sites seem to be doing a similar thing. I keep noticing that items featured in Memebox's that I've purchased on Korean skincare sites in recent months (most less than 3 months ago) have suddenly gone up in price (often drastically) and it seems to be shortly after the items are released in a Memebox. It seemed like a coincidence at first of course, but I keep noticing it more and more.
For those that think I'm just being paranoid, the D-Toc Lemon peeling product from the detox box I purchased before finding Memebox (and shortly before the box was available it seems) was just under $10, and now I see it on lots of sites (including TesterKorea which used to have competitive pricing for the product) in the $30 range. The Skinaz lip tattoo I saw shortly before I found Memebox a month ago for around $5 and now it's selling everywhere for $20. And there's LOTS of similar situations where items I recently purchased for $5-$10 are selling at drastic markups ever since they were included in recent Memebox's.
Is Memebox really that popular?
