Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

That's a very intriguing preference. I'd never really thought about the "unknown brands" vs. the widely available brands before now.

You have a very good point there. :)

 

I did really like the Skinfood box at the time I ordered 2 of them because I only had the rice wash off mask and wanted to try more of their products but didn't know which ones to buy.

Memebox has helped me sometimes by doing the choosing for me. And sometimes, they get it all wrong.. that's the intrigue of "mystery boxes" for me. :)

I have the strawberry black sugar wash off and I love that thing! I've been wanting to try out the rice one, too. Sometimes I just spend too much time researching products (like hours on end..), so it can get really overwhelming when there's so much to choose from, so memebox is really nice for that.

LOVE the Strawberry Black Sugar mask! I recently got the Banana Yogurt skinfood mask and it smells soooo good and is super soothing.

 

Maybe people's displeasure with the recent #4 box with all the repeats is that it was basically the Skinfood box minus a couple products, they could've mixed it up a bit and separated those products into other boxes. That and those products are found pretty cheap elsewhere, the values of boxes, in general, used to be MUCH better. I'd rather get a $100.00+ value box with some great lesser known products than a $30-$50 value box of stuff I can easily find. Just my take on it which means very little, lol! And I don't care anyway, I didn't order any of them. Not super keen on their current warehouse clear outs. Hoping for some fantastic NEW products in the new year. Happy New Year ladies! (And dudes if any are on here)

Happy New Year everyone!

 

Assume the next boxes will come out on Monday now (if there are any NEW boxes rather than more warehouse clearouts dressed up as New Year Sale boxes lol).

 

Still got lots of boxes in transit (about 7 of them) anyway so will wait for a box I really want now..

My Tea Tree box moved too and has already left LA! I'm so surprised that it actually moved. Also it moved just in time because I was going to file a Paypal dispute today.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

 

The boxing day 4 is not bad and memebox said it would include repeats and tonymoly-skinfood. I think this is a nice box for someone new to memebox. But the boxing day 1...

I am sick of this hair+ product which I didn't like when I tried it and although the beauty people eye pencils are great, how many identical brown pencils can I have?!?! I doubt that all of them are top K-beauty products but again according to the description the box would contain some repeats.

 

 

I like that now memebox tells us that the box may contain repeats!

Was hoping that the Boxing Day mini box spoiler would have been posted by now (was out at a disney frozen singalong - think myself and Kirsty were the only ones actually singing though and she's now dressed as Elsa!).

 

Pouring with rain and getting dark..one day down, 364 days till the next one lol!!

I didn't order any Boxing Day boxes because I had no confidence in the contents, plus I have absolutely no attachment to " boxing day", which is not celebrated in the USA. 

IF Memebox continues to sell Memeboxes, I am eliminating all holiday named boxes from my buying. Other than the Thanksgiving boxes, which had very confusing names for me, so I waited to buy and they sold out, the " day" themed boxes have been disappointing. 

All in all, the Globals have usually been the most useful boxes for me.

Hang in there before filing a complaint. One of my boxes was stuck in N since Dec 19 with no update for a week.  It finally arrived this week.  No fault of MB but of USPS, obviously.   (I'm in the hinterlands about 6 hours south of NYC.)   My guess is once you see movement, they will arrive shortly.

I don't celebrate thanksgiving day (its an American holiday), or Black Friday (another American concept that's been offloaded to the uk) but I see that as no reason to avoid boxes with those names.

 

The Boxing Day boxes were sales boxes (call it Boxing Day, January sales whatever, its clearing the winter stock for the spring / summer stock arriving - to which, the boxes are exactly what memebox said they'd be and the sales happen the world over). They may also release January sales boxes - depending how much stock they have left they want shift.

 

Once that's been cleared, the new boxes will hopefully be released. But, there may be more holiday type boxes coming up.. chinese new year / Valentines Day / Easter / May Day...etc. will just have to see...

I stayed away from the boxing day boxes but they actually fit the idea behind boxing day, at least in Canada. Boxing day sales are the clearance sales to get rid of all the leftover Christmas items (great deals on wrapping paper etc) and surplus stock. It's also when some of the winter clothing sales start too. 

 

I think my rule of thumb for memebox for 2015 is to stay away from the vague themes that could easily be clearance type sales and all brand specific boxes. And I need to listen to my gut more. If I think it could be a questionable box, don't order it! Yeah, I'm still very annoyed with myself for ignoring that feeling about petite treasures....

I wanna see what's in the 3rd box! I keep refreshing, haha! I'm surprised there wasn't a New Years box, since there have been boxes for everything else! Maybe they've actually cleared out the warehouse!

 

About the slow shipping, it's hit my boxes too! Being in Canada standard shipping usually takes at least 3-4 weeks, but it's even worse now. I had a box that was shipped the 16th and just now showing it actually left Korea on the 23rd! That's quite the delay! The other has shown that it left Korea on the 17th (I believe, might be a day later) and no update since then. It's annoying and I'm impatient, but not worried. Snail mail really and truly is snail mail here in Canada!

Yup I had boxes take more than a month, not MB fault. They shipped in good faith but USPS/other carriers are swamped as well as West Coast ports being dysfunctional. My husband is a marine pilot in Seattle, it's a disaster with work slowdown going on and on. Keep the faith, boxes will show up!

So my Thumbs Up restock just arrived.

(well it arrived yesterday, but I just opened it now)

It's seriously good box now that I see it in person.

 

Question about the Real Beauty serum....

when it first appeared in the Aloe box everyone was raving about it.

Now that many months and many boxes have happened since then,

do you still feel it's a great serum?

 

Asking because I am not sure whether to keep it or give it away.

I got the white Waterful version.

YES! I feel super great about the serum--I even bought more to give to my mom for her "Actual Blogger's Picks" box that I made for the holidays. It's a total moisture bomb--I dig it.

Oh that's good to hear @ as should get that box in a few days (one of the boxes I bought when it was restocked)...though when I'll get round to using it mind you as feeling a little overwhelmed with products and still trying to find out what works for my skin.
