Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

@@Krysten Lowe Yeah, I'm not too worried about the ingredients from what I read. It's just hard to justify buying such things when I'm drowning in great products, and can't seem to find any information/reviews on it. But $20 for a "$100+" item...I mean, it's the fiscally responsible thing to do if it's a great product?

 

...Right?!  :lol:

 

And....Now for the 2 hour countdown for tonight's Memenews. Here's hoping they give us something good.

@@cfisher, yup. I used it tonight but obviously will take some time to see how it works. It's got a really light fresh scent to it, like a super light fresh laundry smell almost and it's really watery, not quite a toner consistency but not a serum either. The listed ingredients are oryzanol, Nicotinoyl, tripeptide-1, Nelumbo Nucifera Callus Culture Extract. I'm gonna look into these ingredients tonight. The ingredients list in korean isn't super long either. Wish I could read korean, lol!

Here's what I found for the main ingredients (urgh--I hate when the full list isn't given grr): Purified water, glycerin, oryzanol, nicotinoyl tripeptide-1, callus cultures lotus extract, Sodium hyaluronidase, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Green Tea Extract, Betaine, allantoin, sodium citrate, tocopheryl acetate, citric acid, disodium Heidi tieyi, Butylene Glycol, gold extract, Ethyl hexyl glycerin, glyceryl acrylate rilka ruffle, 1,2-hexanediol, phenoxyethanol, fragrance. Lazy translation based on this page plus google translate.

The only other place I see that product is on Qoo10 for 114.00, and a youtube vid. I figure it was only 21.00, it's probably worth at least that...hopefully it's good but not so good I want it again! It's my fear of finding an HG that's super pricey! I did that once with Sisley and a 300.00 face oil, never again, ha!

@ Lowe A lot of the Qoo10 shops are brand shops, which usually charge retail prices and then do specials here and there. With that being such an impossible to find product, I wonder if what you saw was their own shop? I just wish we knew how much it sold at places/on sites that don't charge obscene retail prices. 

 

Definitely better grab one before it jumps back up to $100+ on the Memeshop though. Regardless of the fact that I doubt people usually pay retail on it, I doubt we'll see it for less anywhere online. 

 

Here's hoping it's great...But not TOO amazing.  :lol:

I've a bottle of the dermakey but haven't tried it yet. It does look like the elixir in "Death Becomes Her" when the bottle is shaken which is pretty cool!

 

Stupid dog was up at 4am then again at 5.50am so hubby is not a happy bunny as he got up to see if he was ok (he's prone to ear infections and think he might have one starting). Woke Kirsty up so she's grumpy too this morning...gonna be a LONG day!?!

I have been reading this forum for a while, and finally made an account.

 

I keep refreshing my email hoping for something from memebox about new boxes. But I realize now I didn't even get the December VIP email confirming my VIP status, have any of you guys gotten one already?

No I haven't but then I don't care any more because there's nothing to be a VIP for.

Down to 59 CPM2 boxes... which is good news, but I'm quite worried that Black Friday boxes 4 and 5 will be mostly items from CPM2!

Wonder if Claypatra salt & clay mask will be in the Cleopatra box as would fit with the theme...

 

No hair salon or dirty gal spoilers yet? Was hoping someone downunder would have posted them by now..

Maybe they're saving new boxes until the new year? It's a bit too late to do a Christmas box when it probably won't ship until afterwards?

 

 

On a sidenote, I'm loving standard shipping being super quick between Korea and France (all of my orders seem to go on the same Air France flight to CDG) and practically crawls at snail pace between Paris and the UK. Move faster, damn you...

I do wonder too, @thelavalampgirl. They did the TG and BF pretty close to the date and we mostly got by express anyways. :) I don't think they will pass up on this opportunity. Just hopefully they are not thinking of putting in any CPM, the "stocking fillers". Eek!

 

@@Alidolly many ladies cancelled I read. I wonder if they will put it back on restock in time to ship out together! I would pick up some now that boxes are pretty absent..

Sorry for the double post, but did they remove the option to withdraw commission as memepoints?

 

The amount I want to withdraw is less than $30 but I don't see where I can change the method... O___O

As predicted, doesn't look like there will be anything new added today (apart from those US value sets). Hoping my KoreaDepart order arrives though as should have been heading north the last few days.

    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal. https://folexin.info/ https://skincellpro11.weebly.com/
