Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

Wow, this sounds awesome. I'm just wondering if the instructions and ingredient lists of the products are in English. I'm sooo tempted to try a box!!!!

I'm not sure as I get them sent to me to review for my blog, however, I DO know that their customer service is absolutely awesome and they always respond to me within the same business day. I'd just shoot them an e-mail and ask them exactly that. They'll probably put your points in your account asap!

They definitely have a card in the box with English descriptions and instructions. Not all of them have ingredients lists but I have e-mailed them before and asked for ingredients if I cant' find them online and they've provided it. They are great boxes and really worth the cost considering what you get for this price point from US boxes!

I love those gel liner tins! So cute!! I love Etude House also because they have the cutest packaging on their cosmetics! :)

The 3rd Edition will be my first Memebox. It's actually waiting for me at the post office so seeing this post is making me even more anxious! I'm a little late but I decided it was finally time to start focusing on skincare (I'm 29).

Ahh mine was waiting at the post office for me the other day and I made my roommate go and get it because I couldn't get ready fast enough! haha :) I also started skincare late (I'll be 29 in March!) and I still haven't found the perfect combination of products so it's always nice to get different things to test out!

Gave in & bought the 3rd one! I'll wait to see if I want the 4th one, which I probably will like.. It says free express shipping too. Excited! This is to make up for the jan PSMH.

They had some issues with the 2nd box making it here due to the holidays and all the storms we had, so they upgraded the 3rd box to express shipping, which was nice. I can't wait to see what's in the 4th one!

That's really nice of them! Can't wait to see what's in the 4th box either! Hope it's a BB cream. I just ordered some skin79 diamond BB cream & I'm patiently waiting for it to arrive. I'm also debating on the la prairie glossybox. Lol! Any thoughts on that?

Just joining - is it a pretty skin care heavy box? I really want to try some of the bb creams as well, but I use the clinique 3 step on my 40 year old skin and so far it's not freaking out, so I'm not sure I want to switch it up. I do probably need to start using an eye cream though. I don't have crows feet or under eye wrinkles, but the top of my eyes are starting to get crepe-y and i'm not sure what to do about it!

I LOVE the Skin79 Diamond BB cream! It's amazing and one of my favorites. Apply it very lightly and slowly build though, because if you put on too much it doesn't absorb as well and you'll need a lot of powder to set it/not look shiny.

 

As for the other box, I haven't tried it out yet!

There's been 4 boxes in the US so far and the first 2 were skincare-heavy. The third one had a mix of skincare and a few cosmetics items. The 4th one is still a mystery as I don't know if anyone has received it yet. I think that "korean beauty" in general is heavily based in skincare anyway, so I can imagine that it will be skincare heavy overall. I've received a few BB creams so far from the box and have enjoyed them all. The good thing about most korean skincare lines is that they are super gentle. I have sensitive skin and nothing I have tested/played with has given my skin any issues. :)

It felt really cooling and soothing, however once I took it off and patted the rest of the serum into my skin, my lips just kind of felt moisturized, but nothing too exciting. Kind of like if you put on a lip balm and then wiped off the excess. Nothing I would buy again, but kind of a fun little "mask" for the lips, I guess!

 

Thanks for clearing that up! Doesn't sound like it made much of a difference but it'd be fun to use :)

 

It's weird though that when I tried to look up the products (from the box) on their website, I never found any of them. I assumed they'd have the box contents up for sale at their site for anybody who liked sampling them. I hope the 4th box will be just as good, if not better! I don't really need more skincare items (just got my YesTo order today, yay!) but I'll try whatever they send out :smilehappyyes:

I think they only have contracts with certain brands to sell their product in their online shop, but I can definitely relay the message to them about selling more of the brands that they feature in their boxes!

I'm pretty sure if you e-mail them at [email protected] and say that HarlotBeauty referred you (also let them know your user name on the site) you guys will get an extra $5 in credit on your account. I get complimentary boxes so I don't get any kickback from them (just so MUT mods know, I'm not profiting off referrals in any way), but I know you guys get the $5 so I thought I'd pass that along!

Yep, the $5 credit should work! I used a bloggers ID and got the credit within a few hours. You also get another $5 credit just for joining, so that's an instant $10 plus the $7 credit if you order a box! When I asked about the credit I also brought up not being able to find a specific product from a past box on their site and the rep said that they were looking into getting it back in stock. Also, I ordered the 3rd and 4th on Wednesday night, and got a shipping notice for both of them this morning. Apparently they just landed at JFK a few hours ago! So excited! I've had my eye on this box for a while and regret not getting that 2nd box because of the face creams.

I just ordered my first box with them. The 3rd edition! I can't wait. I just wonder how long it will take me to get it here in Ohio. The shipping always seems to take so long for anything from anywhere. So hope it doesn't take to long. I thought after I get it if I like it I will order the fourth box. Tank you for the suggestion and I look forward to trying out this new sub.!

I ordered the 3rd and 4th boxes yesterday, but didn't see the referral in time. Ah well.  I like that it's not an auto-renew, I'll have a chance to play with these items for a while first.

Okay, here's how I'm going to justify this 1. I returned my Wantables box this month ($36 refund) 2. It would be a great learning experience to see the type of products people use in other parts of the world. 3. My husband and I are planning a vacation to Hong Kong and this will introduce my to some Asian brands. Okay, I'm in.

Haha that's awesome. Your wantable refund alone would be enough to justify it for me! :icon_bigg

I'm swimming in beauty products right now, so I need a little bit more justification.
