Spoiler Alert!

BOXING DAY SPECIAL #5 Spoiler 

Purederm Yogurt Wash-off Pack 15ea

Randomly selected from Strawberry & Kiwi

A wash-off type facial mask made from yogurt, collagen, Vitamin E, and various fruit extracts. The kiwi mask helps to exfoliate dead skin cells while the strawberry mask helps to control out excess sebum and oil, both effective for maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion.

It seems they're including a full box, 15 pieces or am I getting it wrong? Because if it's just one mask... Then it's rather sad.

 

Hi, Paulina, :)

I'm answering your question from memory because it's quite late here and I don't want to wake up the household rummaging through my 4 stacks of Memeboxes. 

 

I'm putting this in " spoiler" so no one will be accidentally spoiled. :)

 

 

There was recently a Mask box released over Christmas, and it had a box of strawberry masks as well. The box looks like what you have pictured, so I'm guessing Purederm overload. LOL. ( Their masks are nice, I think).

 

This is one of the boxes with the website info card, and I do not remember how many masks are in the box. Somewhere around 6-10 I am thinking..

It's my impression from this recently stocked box that what should be coming in the box you are talking about is the same ( or maybe slightly larger quantity) of the same masks. Plural. Very nice presentation of masks.

 

 

If you bought the Boxing Day box, I think you will like these products.. :)

Could be 15 of either strawberry or kiwi..though its not 100% clear is it (and knowing memebox, it wouldn't surprise if it was only one). Still not interested in the box though as got the wintercare mask set coming and loads of masks from other boxes (as well as Etude House sale) so nowhere to store them left!

 

Ballet last night was brilliant (Nutcracker) and Kirsty enjoyed it - though was really tired as well past her bedtime so she's REALLY cranky this morning. Early to bed tonight I think...end of year or not.

 

Hope everyone has a lovely evening (whatever you may be doing) and best wishes for 2015. :)

@@Alidolly Thank you. I've managed to find it in some reviews and there was actually 15 pieces box included in Wish Upon A Mask. So it's quite tempting for me at the moment but I also have Winter Masks coming... If I get some points today for the damaged products in my boxes as it was promised by CS yesterday I may buy it.

 

Have a nice evening everyone, especially if you're going to some awesome party! :D And Happy New Year - I hope for lots of fantastic boxes for all of us!

Lulz, TesterKorea just put another nail in Memebox's coffin. In 2015 EVERY member gets 30% off and business accounts get 35% off regardless of level AND 20% off shipping EMS. Just got an email. TK already gets my business and they'll get more in 2015. Good luck Meme. Better dump your prices.

I like these, got a box in some MB recently. Didn't buy BD5 though, my Meme love is gone I think.

Think there must be a backlog at GBLALA as my Empress Box (which was shipped on the 16th) hasn't updated since it left Incheon on the 19th...along with a few other boxes that were shipped a few days later. Was hoping at least one of them would have arrived today but only my daughter's Nerd Block Jnr has appeared so she'll be happy at least (she calls it her Memebox as its a light purple box lol!).

 

Not had the email from TesterKorea but that would be awesome! I'm on the 4% level (girly princess?) at the moment but was getting closer to the next level after yesterday's order ;)

 

Anyone tried the Skinfood Watery berry range? Would love to see some of that in Memeboxes next year as packaging just lovely (Elsa box perhaps given they've done Rapunzel / Snow White etc?). If they don't want to get into difficulty copyright with Disney then Ice Queen box? Would be fab ;)

Yes, they were in Wish Upon a Mask and it was the 15 piece box!  They are great (I got Kiwi) and I really enjoy getting purederm...

Just to make sure we don't stray from memebox topic, I did post the email from testerkorea on the korean skincare thread.  http://www.makeuptalk.com/f/topic/131289-koreanasian-beauty-and-skincare-talk/page-69?do=findComment&comment=2359253 

 

it is over at that thread to be discussed :) as poor Miss Jexie will have to remind us again and I don't want this thread closed because we cannot stay on topic....just sayin'

Very excited about tester korea. Btw I sent a not too polite reply to the ten point offer. I am not amused by that. I was expecting at least the points of the brush back which was about twenty five/twenty eight dollars especially as they admit they were at fault.

TK news are super exciting! I already placed two huge orders this month, but my wishlist is growing uncontrollably nonetheless! ^^

 

Memebox is super slow with crediting review points! Why did they even write that the points will be credited within 24h, when the actually never do...

@Fae  Lauren is the only  awarding those points and since this is the end of the month, she is probably slammed with commission withdrawal requests - she is the only one working those review points and affiliates, so she is very busy.

That's poor given the cost of the original brush. They should refund in full the item cost (not in points but actual cash). Its their mistake and you should not be out of pocket because of it. Even taking the cost of the brush they did send off, they should provide the difference in money plus say 5 points for the inconvenience. I'd email back and say your offer is not accepted and set out exactly what you want (and by when).

thank you! I didn't know! I assumed there were more people working on the review points submitted through the review center! ^^

I got TK's email but I could not figure out what they were trying to offer... I had just woke up and it wasn't tracking LOL.

Thank you for explaining. :)

 

For a long time, no one could match Memebox's value. I wish the boxes would be ramped back up, but things rarely work that way, do they?

Happy New Year, Ladies! new-year-champagne-smiley-emoticon.gif

 

It's been a few days and it didn't take me long to catch up at all. I don't like that. Still missing the days of lots of box releases and even more chatting about them. Fun times!

 

I didn't check for the TesterKorea email but did find these in my box upon returning home. I thought it was a bit odd as I placed my first order with them MONTHS ago but free gifts are always nice. There's also a $1 coupon code on the the back.

Ooooh, wonder if they'll send something out to all new members (TesterKorea). Can't see memebox ever doing something like that (or giving everyone say 3 memepoints for the new year). Would be nice...

 

Still no info cards for the Boxing Day boxes? Thought they might have put them up by now given all bar one box has been sent out (and sold out too).

 

Only a few hours left in the UK till the new year. For those already into 2015, hope its a good one so far! For those still to come, hope you have a happy one and to all the staff at memebox - looking forward to some awesome boxes in 2015 so this time next year we can look back and say - there were some seriously great boxes and be chatting about the exciting new products we've all been trying!

 

So long 2014, nice to know you but here comes 2015!!!

I believe someone posted Boxing Day Box #4 on FB Memeaddicts group, it was kind of a bust of a box, imo.

Eh, doesn't look like a terrible box to me. They promised a box of items seen before and that's what they delivered. It feels sometimes like people are going to not like boxes no matter what, which they will because it's a mystery box. We pay money and take a chance knowing that we could end up with colors or products that won't work for us. I know Memebox has been crap at times (I got a K-Style 4 box so I know that for sure!), but when they put out boxes with 5 or so items and the value is quite a lot higher than what is paid for it, there's not much to complain about imo. Sure, we can be unhappy if we can't use a product, but why go into buying a mystery box if you aren't prepared for that? I guess that if feels like all I read when I new box is out is complaining.... We can't feel entitled to have Memebox deliver us a box that is perfect and has just the items we wanted, because it's impossible. I'm definitely not saying Memebox is perfect, but it does feel like they've at least heard the issues and are trying to improve upon it, and thankfully CS is answering most emails now!

*Apologies if this is coming across harsh, don't mean it to! Doesn't help I'm in a crap mood spending my NYE dealing with frozen pipes in my house....stressful!*

In all fairness, branded items like that don't sell ANYWHERE near their retail/suggested price. It's why branded boxes aren't great deals like general Memeboxes. So you could recreate that box for that amount, so it's really not a good value.

And I think most of us just don't want a bunch of repeats.

Especially one with crappy/meh/not quality/not well received products.

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
