Regarding the "Hand Cream Myself" name:

 

Dear Memebox, if the name of your product could also be the title of a porno, you might want to rethink things.

 

Yours truly, etc. etc.

Thanks @@cfisher ! After reading your great reply, I decided to send a second more thorough email with a clear explanation of the issue, list of products received, and tracking info. AND I actually got a prompt reply from CS asking for me to send them a photo of the items(?!?). Anyway, hopefully I can get this resolved soon... (Though I was sorta secretly hoping for a keep the stuff type of reply- would have loved to try the I'm eyeliners :D ).

Tbh I'd check out the unsolicited mail in your country. I know in the UK if a parcel is delivered with your name and address that you didn't order you are legally entitled to keep it.

I'm feeling overwhelmed by the skincare line, and it hasn't even been released on the global site yet. Ack. :(

I'm actually surprised, they never asked me for photos, which tends to be their standard email response. I just hope they actually read your email.

 

Ohhhh. I just realized, I've never accidentally received things from the US. Are you in the US? I hope they don't make you send it back.

@cfisher  Yup, I'm in the US so there is some chance they might ask me to send the items back. Hoping they want the info for making sure that the appropriate customer receives her order though...

Customer service has come back to life?!?! Time to start weeding through my emails!

 

@ I've actually never heard of people getting things from the US Shop, so I have no idea how it works. But I'm hoping you still get to keep the items!

Took eighteen days but I probably could have done it faster if I bugged them more but been ill so not really persued it too much

@cfisher  So, you know how I was worried that someone else got screwed over with their stuff getting shipped to me instead? Well I was looking over the shipping label and noticed what looked like a possible order number listed above the memebox.com print on the label. Decided to check it against all my recent orders and found it matched one of my orders. My order of course is for skincare items and not memebrand eyeliners and lippies. Apparently I'm one of the people that got screwed over! Sigh... I'm off to email CS again...

Add me to the people MB screwed up orders on. I ordered the 5 eyeliner set and got three of one color. Wonder how long this will take to fix?!

Regarding the Nov 28th missing boxes, I emailed CS about Tea Tree last week and Gwen replied saying she would ask logistics to look into it. I hadn't heard anything so I sent them another email today asking for an update but haven't received a reply yet.

I received this email today regarding my lost Tea Tree Box.

 

Thank you for your patience while your package is in transit.

 

Unfortunately, Silkload- the standard shipping & EMS delivery company we work with, has informed us that packages will be delayed for more than a month from the shipping date. Due to the busy holiday season, many carriers are falling behind on keeping up with shipping schedules.

 

We sincerely apologize for the delay, but we will continue to use the same tracking number you have to see if the carrier updates the location of your package.

 

We are just as anxious as you are to have your package reach you soon, and in the meantime thank you for patience.

 

Happy holidays,

 

 

Memebox Global Team

Still no tea tree box for me. My concern is that all these missing boxes are sitting in freezing temperatures somewhere, not being maintained.

 

Thank you for the "myself" jokes! I needed a laugh. Things have been insane here with family drama, holidays, and my never ending flu. I hope everybody is doing well and looking forward to the new year!

My tea tree is also still missing.  I had ordered two and got the first a while ago.  Hopefully I get this missing one eventually.  I got 9 boxes today, lol.  It felt so good going through a lot of those restock boxes since they tended to have 6 or more items unlike the ones they advertise nowadays with only 5.  I REFUSE to buy one of their boxes with 5 items.  It just reeks of greed.  It was bad enough they charge 7 bucks per box for shipping now they drastically reduce the number of items in each box.  It was hard resisting the last couple weeks, but I think I'm just about over my addiction.  I think I have 5 more boxes coming, then I'm out.  Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

In addition to the Meme branded eyeliners I got today, I also got a lipstick and lip crayon and I have to reiterate what others have said. The lip products are stellar, theyre really really at their price point. I've got dozens and dozens of lippies and the Bella lip crayon is one of the best I now own. Pigmentation and staying power every bit as good as Bite at a fraction of the cost. Ugh, Bella is so pretty! I really wanted to hate the Meme makeup but man it's good. The eyeliners don't budge either!

So, just checked my account and its got complete on all orders. I've nothing more to be shipped (there are a few in transit). Quite sad really as no fun boxes to look forward to next month unless they release and ship them out a lot quicker. I'm resisting the BD#5 boxy keep telling myself I've got My Little Box January coming mid to end of month but its just not the same...I'm going to miss my pink boxes :(

 

Just tried the Sally's hair mask (from the Rapunzel box) - quite a thick cream with a fetching yellow plastic hair cover (so probably be used again with another conditioning treatment once its been washed). Smells ok and hair felt very soft washing it out (though the shower was like a skating rink for a few minutes while doing so!). Will see how it is tonight as going to the ballet (won family tickets to see the Nutcracker in Edinburgh). :)

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
