@JaneGeorge is right on--they're so new that when I checked in at my local TonyMoly store they didn't have them--they hoped they would be in in early January.

@@UberClaire The boxes haven't left Korea yet. At least this is what the ladies who ordered expressed said.

I just checked again and the reference number still isn't showing up in the system. I'm thinking that we will be lucky to get the Mask box spoilers before Christmas and I doubt that K-Beauty Wrap Up will arrive before xmas, at this rate.

@ so jealous the U.S. has Tony moly stores

We didn't up until 6 months ago, so I'll cross my fingers for TM-UK to happen soon!

 

EDIT: OMG!!! I forgot to tell you all!!! There's a THE YEON store in NYC NOW!!!!!! And they have the whole Hallabong line and a bunch of other products from nice Korean brands. I'm hoping to visit on one of my days off! There's a new Holika Holika, too. And a new TonyMoly.

 

btw the reason the prices are so high in the US shop for the "known brand" stuff like Club Clio and Skinfood is because the companies set minimum prices--so Memebox isn't setting those prices just because they want to. I think that whole thing might be related to these brands wanting to advance in the US (physical shops + ending up in Memeboxes + ending up in the US shops) and sell their products to people who don't even care much about kbeauty--except at full retail prices. hmm

Here's the Reddit thread about it. It's in Flushing where the old Face Shop used to be located--one block over from Roosevelt.

 

I'm hoping that The Yeon's US advance means more of their Hallabong line in Memeboxes. WANT.

@ I have to agree about pricing. I think people forget there is NOWHERE to get these brands at a respectable price in the US. And I can't blame them for not wanting to compete against themselves. Tons of these brands want to test the market and see how well they do, surely come of them may open stores in the US.

 

But more importantly...What are the other products in the Hallabong line?! So far we have the sunscreen, the toner and the serum. What else do we have to look forward to?!

 

Must. Collect. Them. All.

Well, they may sell The Yeon stuff in the US memestore but not sure about boxes as they will still be sent from South Korea won't they...at least the global ones will anyway.

 

Received the The Yeon sherbet orange from TesterKorea and its got the same fantastic smell as the serum - though haven't tried it in any depth yet (other than putting a wee bit on the back of my hand).

 

Will be ages before they open any Korean branded stores in the UK no doubt (and even then, it'll be down in London only initially - which may as well be the other side of the world for all I have access to that!). Still, we can dream...

Thank you!!!

And yes, I hope that means much more Hallabong in Memeboxes.

 

On a side note, I tried the Cleomee Donkey Milk / Oil face masks from the Memeshop last night.

It was AMAZING!

I highly reco them for anyone who needs mega moisture and wants a baby butt soft face.

Now all we need are some free global shipping codes!

What is up with that?

Where did they go?!!!!

Urgh--yes, we could really use a shipping code for the global shop, yikes. I actually bought some products from the global shop when the VIP free shipping code was offered last month.

 

LOL--I'm still freaked out about the donkey oil, so I'm thinking that I'll "subcurate" a box of barnyard skincare (pig collagen + donkey oil + whatever else seems right) for the fanshop or a giveaway. The Lassiel egg sleeping pack would be PERFECT, but I refuse to give that up for the sake of perfect curation. I'm glad to hear that the donkey oil is amazing--I keep hearing great stuff about it!

Barnyard box is hysterical. @

 

I had the same fear/ gross out factor re: Donkey oil. But I forced myself to take the plunge and I just LOVE what it does to my skin. It feels so nourishing and soothing. And now of course I have it all rationalized, so I no longer have an issue with it.

Quite the contrary...as I currently want to get my hands on more and more Cleomee products!

 

I had a similar initial fear of Syn-ake products btw. I know it's not real snake venom, just a peptide that "mimics" the real thing, but still. I have a massive fear of snakes. To the point I once got freaked out by my python purse. LOL . True story.

Very happy to hear this! I was so disappointed that the Donkey Oil literally smelled like donkey ass, unless I got a bad batch and everyone else's smelled lovely, because I was super excited about this brand as a hole.

LOLS!!! I thought it was just me, but I thought the Donkey Oil mist we got in OMG3 smelled kinda barnyard-y. I wasn't sure if it was just psychological because I knew it had donkey oil in it, or if it really smelled that way. Ha, glad to know I'm not the only one. Maybe we'll have better luck with the masks.:)

Yes. I think you will really like these masks.

They do make your skin feel a bit "oily"  (in a great way actually) after you take off the mask.

But the rest of the serum will sink in about another 30 minutes or so.

So it's not a quick mask.

But really pampering and totally worth it.

 

That smell sounds horrible!

Was it a bad batch?

That's a shame, because it sounds like the type of treatment your skin would drink up.

Hmm--I may need to break my barnyard box up and use that oil on my legs then--this winter is causing some painfully dry skin!

 

Syn-ake: SAME! LOLOLOL

 

This is the craziest thing and I thought I'd never say it, but...I think I want to buy Meme makeup more than the k-wrap up box. Once I tried more I was impressed. To the point that I just bought a metallic board for above my makeup table so I can put magnets on the backs of all of the pots I've bought and will end up buying and stick them there for easier grabbing. Memebox absolutely bungled the release of the Meme products because they're actually good and a real value. Like...$3 eyeliner? Get on me.

Donkey oil would probably be awesome on legs.

It's all about the oil!

 

In the spirit of Chanukah, maybe this oil will ward off dryness for 8 days. :)

I keep trying to use the donkey oil, but I'm not sure about it! Not a fan of the smell. Smells like raisins to me. Lol.

The only thing I'm truly terrified of are jellyfish (like, hyperventilating panic attack at the aquarium terror)  - so I'm betting that jellyfish will be the new snails.

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • 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.
