Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

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

Oh.. Mine was always dropped off in the community mailbox which was really convenient... I thought that was the norm.. Guess I was wrong. :(

Mine's the same - if it's the regular postman he'll leave anything round the back (signature required or not - he even left a passport once :S ) but any of the subbies it's like trying to get blood from a stone to get them to leave stuff

I wish Memebox would offer Priority Processing. I just bought a leotard and some new pointe shoes for the little girl and paid $2 extra to make sure my order would ship today, arrive in Buffalo by Friday, and be ready for me to pick up by Sunday when I make my monthly trip to Kinek (any Canadians who live even an hour or two away from a US border should check out their service!). There is no way to do this with the Memebox US shop. The timing is even spottier because I wouldn't want cosmetics or makeup sitting in a freezing cold Buffalo, NY warehouse for more than a few days.

 

I'm probably one of the only people with this issue, so it's not a complaint per se, and considering all the other issues people have with Memebox, it's definitely low on the priority list, but I can dream lol. It's just that right now I'm lusting after the eyeshadow set because of the new US discount code and I can't bring myself to order them for fear of the issue I detailed above.

Tonya, that's a great idea. I assume you're talking about these holding services, so you can shop USA and then run across the border and just collect it. I'm sure a lot of money can be saved if you wait until you have a fair amount of packages. Not to mention there are quite a lot of sales that are not even open to Canadians *cough-memebox US-cough*

Good for you. I'd totally do it if I was a driver myself. Toronto to Buffalo isn't too bad at all.

I have to admit sometimes I love next day delivery but I am also a jinx on it as it rarely happens and I have had a refund a few times this year as companies can't keep promises

I always had to sign for express DHL delivery, but standard delivery did not use to require a signature for me.  I am not a fan of the change.

I feel like all the FOMO I had about not buying many boxes recently is justified. All I am waiting on to ship is the Pumpkin/Anniversary bundle and I just have Dirty Gal and Tea Tree on the way. I should have gotten so many many many more!! (Next best thing, Eden, Empress, Cleopatra... so many I passed on)

 

Boxes come back to meeeee. 

 

(Though there have been enough duds that I passed on that I should have an even FOMO balance I guess.)

It varies.  Pinkaholic was $29 and had six items.  Chocolate Mania was $23 and had EIGHT.

MEMEBOX, I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.

 

 

p.s. thank you for the holiday period wishes.

 

hahahaha

 

 

BTW - I LOVE my 2 boxes I got today - soothing sista and tea tree.  One is great with fun new products and the other is very functional & very useful.  Two totally different sides of the spectrum, but I really love the products in both of these boxes - there is only one item I won't use and that is the etude primer.

I want to love Memebox, but I never have any idea what to expect from them (in terms of quality, service, pricing, what they are even selling and to whom, and whether they will honor their own advertised promises). The longer I follow along, the more they just seem like a really manipulative jerk frenemy.

OOoo Memebox gave those who didn't get the Innisfree product in the wine & cheese box a mememask! That's cool!

I think memebox is pretending new boxes are coming because their customer base would have already abandoned them if they were aware of their intention to switch over to NOT selling boxes.

I believe Memebox about the new boxes... I don't think the number of different boxes will ever be up to the level of this summer and fall, but I do believe that we will see new boxes in the future.

Update on the Dermakey she's 2nd key aurora elixir...I love it! My face is so smooth and plumped out (in a good way) and has a good consistent moisture level throughout the day. For 21.00 I think it's a great deal and I'm going to buy a backup at that price. For 100.00+, not so much! It's too early to know if it evens out my skin tone more but I like the results so far after almost a week.

 

Edit for typos, tired as hell today!

I purchased that today (based on your comments here - they finally got the price right this morning!) and I also got the 3rd key as well

oops its dermakey, I see it now  did that come in an other box I might already have?  I have so much I have totally lost the ability to remember what exactly I already have.

 

Also, is there any specials or codes one can use for a purchase right now that is global like the aurora elixir?  I don't think I can use a golden ticket on anything but a box right?

For what it is worth, Memebox just posted this on Facebook

That announcement should have been made a whole month ago. I wrote to Memebox suggesting something similarly vague and upbeat weeks ago. So now we get the announcement? The same statement would have been true forever ago, but people have been kept waiting and worrying.

 

Wanna know what else happened today? A bunch of people found out about and subscribed to a new Asian beauty box. I'm really frustrated that communication only seems to happen when outside forces appear at the walls. Fans waiting one month and we just happen to get a statement, at last, today. really

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • 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.
