Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

Did they really shift 5000 of the first one?  Yowzers...

The first one there weren't that many and it sold pretty fast. I think for CPM2 the person who does the purchase orders for vendors hit 1 to many zeros, LOL

I'm thinking a 1000% rise in sales is a little ambitious for most companies.  It can't just be a finger fudge moment, someone would have stopped it before it got that far.

Maybe they thought CPM2 was going to be their great leap forward and it just went catastrophically wrong?

No, there was way less of that box but people said they really liked it so they over ordered the second box BIG TIME. marcia also did a lack-lustre YouTube promotion of it (admitting she hadnt tried most of the stuff) so people weren't impressed. The box has been with us ever since despite people asking for it to be removed and new boxes added. The managers at memebox just don't care what the customers think..to the point of ridiculing us by shoving the stuff in other boxes (K style was an absolute disgrace).

 

But...people are starting to go elsewhere now for skin care products. Yes they've lost the box appeal but can buy wht they want, often much cheaper than memebox(and get free samples to try too).

 

The customer services reps are baring the brunt of it but its the MD that makes the decision so entirely his fault if the business ultimately fails in the long run.

If the products in it were all awesome like the Appletox and Hallabong serum, they probably would have sold them all. The value just wasn't there as the other 4 products were cheap stuff no one wants.

Lol hence why they will be there when my grandchildren want a memebox

 

Worse, it'll be like the Memebox equivalent of the Atari video game burial.  They'll leave them for so long it'll become myth and legend and then be unearthed 30 years later and sell on ebay for thousands.

 

I think the idea was there, I just think they really misjudged what people wanted.

I tried to take one off their hands as I bought it in a bundle with the Innisfree box and we all know how that ended up. They canceled the whole order. I wonder how many people did the same as me as those cancelled boxes all went back to stock.

I think they still misjudge what we want which is BOXES and good ones not some cheap makeup line of their own. And please, take CPM2 out of our faces right NOW!

 

I know, I shouldn't shout but they literally make me crazy these days!

I just discovered that all of the registered mail from Memebox coming to Canada now requires signatures..  :scared:  :scared: And Canada Post refuses to safe drop the package even if you leave them a note. That means I have to make a big trip to the depot this week.. Why... Sigh...

Heard back from Karl on Twitter. More Memebox coming in 2015.

 

I wonder why they cannot make an announcement of that nature on FB, their website and newsletters.

Probably because they have no idea when in 2015.

:P

Because that would be the sensible method of business communication.  So far Memebox have no demonstrated much sense in that area.  Though, apparently neither has BeautyNetKorea  this week... *shakes fist*

Wouldn't hurt them to finally see that what they are doing is no sensible business move ;)

 

By the way, I know I can only slap myself for missing out on the Next Best Thing box. I ordered Apple Mojito and Blackout as Christmas presents and I just showed my mum the unboxings of the Next Best Thing and she was constantly Oooohing and aaahing. So guys, in the unlikely event of a restocks, if you buy one for you, put one in your cart for me as well. I am willing to pay the shipping prices wherever you are :)

Mine have always required a signature, even before they changed the shipping. I've never had a memebox not need to be signed for.

    • 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/
