Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

@@TheSilverNail The roll on is a spot treatment, so I can get why it's would smell kind of medicinal. I think it smells lovely, but I really like pure essential oil scents. It diminished my blemishes overnight, I love it. edit: Whoops, just saw that you meant the Cleo roll on! Sorry about that. Scents that are too strong are a bummer.

 

Did anyone else get Wonder woman? Because I tried that dual concealer, and I LOVE IT. I'm pretty dedicated to my glamoflage, but this stuff is great for under eyes and getting pimples that keep trying to steal the spotlight through my makeup. But wow, $32 dollars for it? Yeeesh!

@@TheSilverNail My rose body soap had a similar thing, but seemed to settle fine after hanging around my house for a bit. I'm honestly not worried about it at all, but I also checked the smell and I have similar rosewater washes by Mamonde (Korean brand) that smell identical. And like you said, it has a very pleasant rosewater scent. With it being a body wash, I don't see it being an issue at all. But if when I start using mine I have any issues (and if anyone would react badly to something it's me, haha) I'll be sure to warn you. :)

 

The scent of that rollon made my head hurt. I also love lavender in everything, but fresh lavender, dried lavender, etc., is so very different from lavender essential oil. It's similar to how orange essential oil smells nothing to me like a fresh orange. And since it's a mix of essential oils that isn't diluted much, I'm not surprised it's such an intense scent. On my swap list it goes.

 

As for the Lumpoules, That's not for each one, that's for a large set. I've noticed that Memebox doesn't state this clearly all of the time. Like with the bath bombs, I'm sure it's a set for the retail price given. 

 

They really need to be more cautious about such things.

I'm actually from Canada haha. I live near Toronto, Ontario. I'll let you know when the box arrives! Then again, shipping within Canada is pretty crazy too!

 

Hmm...I prob not going to get the new sets. I already have benton on the way. The shara shara is okay. Dewytree looks good but I have way too many masks already

 

Yay for more Canadians! We're slowly and politely invading the board. I'm in Kitchener, so not super far from Toronto.

I want the old Benton set (steam cream instead of toner) with the cleanser. I really and truly don't need more cleansers but I really want to try this one.

I am drowning in cleansers too every memebox I've got almost has had cleansers and they last months! I will use up my stuff but it's strange that I have so much stuff sometimes I wonder really how many years it will take to use up my stuff even if I do minimum buy for a while!

I have such Benton envy. I was so desperate. I had it in my cart and had to call my mom to ask how bad my worst reaction to a bee sting was. I definitely needed that to bring me back to earth.

I'm sensitive to ginseng, and when some of the ladies on here mention an amazing product from Memebox that has it in it...I keep trying to justify trying it. Like "well let's see how far down on the ingredients it is." Or "I wonder if diffferent types of ginseng affect me differently." 

 

(...Did I mention that I used a black raspberry eye cream that contained ginseng in it once and looked somewhat akin to a rabid zombie raccoon for weeks?)

 

I think we should form a support group.  :lol:

@@TheSilverNail You'll love the Lumpoule!!  They are expensive but that price is the (inflated)Memeprice for the entire set of however many.  Lots.  And it's been on sale for $80 something for awhile and seriously... if it weren't for lovely ladies trading with me... I'd have bought it already...  Even at that exorbitant price. >.<

For those of you looking for an update to the golden ticket thing, here it is: I've emailed memebox several times and I haven't recieved one response. It's been over a week since my first email. The restocks have started shipping. I'm assuming that they're not going to get back to me. I'm disappointed but I'm not angry. It WAS my mistake. Memebox held up their end of the ticket and provided 50 boxes for free and that is all that matters with them. Not everyone who used the code did it to take advantage, so I wouldn't like affiliates contacting meme about people they think used the codes. I got a message from a girl who used it because her friend had given it to her and she didn't know anything about it, and she tried to cancel her box but memebox wouldn't let her. The people who did take advantage, whatever. People are shitty, that's life. I know better next time.

 

I'm not going to contact memebox about this anymore because the whole thing makes me sad and I want to forget about it. I love memebox and I will continue to buy their boxes until I have no more room for products :) I'm happy that a majority on here were nice to me and didn't make me feel even more stupid. You're all lovely people :)

I've done the same thing with ginseng, and now I know in my head I'll say "Well, my reaction to it is just a bit of a burning sensation and mild redness, I don't look like a zombie raccoon. Maybe I should just try it". Same with citrus. I've heard such amazing reviews of the Hallabong serum that I don't even want to add it to my trade list because I haven't accepted the fact I should not use it. I'll join that support group for sure.

For those who are getting the Empress box....please read - I put it in the spoiler, but you should probably read it anyway

 

 

 

 

the daltokki facial scrub - memebox doesn't tell you this - the product website states to leave it on for 30 seconds or less and then rinse off.  My face was fricking burning because I thought it was similar to the skinfood rice mask and left it on for a minute or two.  I do not have sensitive skin.   I don't know if it will still burn at 30 seconds, but I will try tomorrow morning and let you know!

@@tamelthecamel I was really hoping they would make it up to you somehow. You are definitely handling it better than I would. Your fault or no, people took advantage of your mistake in a really crappy way. I know that for every person who took advantage though there was someone who was trying to look out for you and feels awful that this happened to you. I guess it is better to focus on the good people and not the dishonest ones.

@@tamelthecamel You are handling this way better than I would have. I think anyone who used the code, even if they didn't exactly know what was going on, should be reimbursing you the cost of the box they bought. Or buying a box and having it shipped to you. Trying to cancel it is great, but they can still make it up to you somehow.

Yess, I know! I have 20 backup cleansers now XD but I'm a hoarder, having a difficult time giving any away I want to try ALL OF THEM!!! Keep trying to justify why I need all of them, this one has rice and milk, that one is special because it's in solid form and melts makeup off, etc etc.

Ontario represent! I'm down past Kitchener, but still a drive away.

 

@@tamelthecamel you are an absolute darling. I seriously respect how diplomatic you've been about this entire situation. At the very least I hope Memebox sends you a free box or something.

I admire this. Instead of pursuing her own benefit, she gives out those free boxes to people (some nice and some not nice people). You're so generous! Your decision is very nice & charitable <3

 

Certainly handled this like a pro!

@@rubymoon, I don't think its her decision it's what she has had to accept after getting no help from memebox, and I doubt any of the people who took the code are nice except for the one who emailed her, and even then she didn't offer to reimburse her or anything...

I'm sorry if I came off the wrong way?

I just admire her ability to admit a mistake. And being able to generously letting it go, even if bad people are the ones getting what should've been hers. She held no grudge and chose to think positively of it, which I support.

She had the right to feel she's given those people a charity.

 

I've known people who constantly looking down on me and try to control my decisions (therefore taking my right to decide), and to hold no grudge and letting it go and be the bigger person is so very hard.

Good morning...I've got a question for you

 

Has anyone used the foot peeling mask from the Bath & Body 4 Spa Edition Box yet? I tried it a couple of weeks ago but it did nothing really apart from making my feet a bit raw (more than they usually are that is). Skin flaked a tiny little bit but could hardly tell. I soaked my feet before using the mask and in the days after but nothing really happened

I soaked my feet before using the mask and in the days after but nothing really happened

 

Now I've got the peeling mask from the Foot Therapy Box and wonder whether I should even bother...? I didn't like the chemical smell of the first mask I used and not sure whether the other mask is any different.

 

What did make my feet feel reallllllly soft though was using that incredible Tonimoly foot scrub and the file they sent!!!

Ugh yes I used that foot mask. You mean the one that is like a pair of wet socks, right? LOL

It did absolutely NOTHING for my feet. I think they got a little flaky for a day or so, but my skin did not peel at all. Considering it was supposed to be an expensive peeling mask...it was a major let down. My cheap $4-$5 peeling foot masks work 100 times better!

 

Weirdly enough some foot peels work great on me and some of them don't do anything. I'd give the Mizon one a try (that was the one from the foot box, yes?) as they're a great brand! I love the foot scrub and file from that box too. In fact, the whole box was a huge winner for me!

    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
