Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

i'd like a global shop- free shipping code (30$)! I've been wanting to buy the eyeliner set, but the shipping kinda stopped me! ^^

I want the $5 off codes (no $30 minimum spend so I can use it on a box) and the vip discounts back!!! I think it was October that they had free international shipping code+memepoints+discounts.

I don't think I've used a VIP code since October. Did they even give out any points in December? And with the lack of boxes (or at least non warehouse clearout boxes) lately, I'm on the cusp of losing VIP status. Oh well, not really upset about that.

I wish they would bring back the 20% off code, only because I would have probably been less selective during the restock frenzy. When they did the restock for Black Friday, I didn't mind picking up boxes for one or two products because I knew I was going to be saving like $50 anyways. I also noticed I am hesitant to pull the trigger on unspoiled boxes and I wait for these restocks to pick up most of what I want.

I think they've been caught on the hop and weren't prepared for the number of people who would purchase boxes (and as often) so there was a LOT of VIP members and they weren't making as big a profit as they thought they would...it was a nice incentive to bring folk in but is now costing them too much in lost revenue. Thing is, these same people are now a lot more selective on their purchases.

 

They've removed the bundles (at the moment anyway) and restocks are all individual boxes and most are under the $30 mark so unless they bring in a flat VIP voucher for $5 off (to be used 2 times a month) etc, people will be more "picky" on their buys... Everyone likes a bargain but I fear the "good old days" of lots of boxes, cheaper shipping and loads of products included are past.

 

I'm waiting to see what tomorrow brings...new boxes or more own brand products.

Has any of you ladies here tried the Vivito blue music make up starter intro pads? I'm not sure how to include them into my routine...I first thought they are a kind of primer but since they leave my skin feel completely dry and in need of a moisturiser that doesn't really work for me.

Hi candycat, I use them as a final prep for my  skin - after I cleanse my face and am ready to start with my serums, moisturizers, I swipe this over my face to remove any product (including cleanser residue) that might still be on my face.

Nothing been added so far but the site might be updated when the US team get in to work later on...losing optimism though

 

(did hear back from testerkorea about wrong item sent so they will include the set in an order I made on the 2nd Jan that hasn't been sent yet! Yippee as so wanted that set).

Yes if we have nothing up in an hour it's no more as such . Above boxes they have January offers but no one will buy the boxes there now. It seem that lack of emails or info of what is going on is mad but they should be back in the office today and in full swing so will await . This thread has gone stagnant in the past72 hrs . I mean how can there be no notifications for over 20 hours . Madness

It's 1am in San Francisco so the staff probably won't be in till 9am at the earliest (PST) if they are the ones running the website now. Orders will have been dispatched from Seoul today (as its end of working day there) but they probably now don't have anything to do with the website.. As it was also the weekend, they might not have loaded the updates to go live or they may have failed. Guess it'll be a case of checking the site periodically today and see what happens round about 9am San Fran time.

So sad that this forum has slowed downed considerably. I use to look forward to coming home from work and reading up on the antics of memebox and the new boxes they released. I do have a question about the Yogurt masks we received recently in wish upon a mask. When I put it on my face it instantly has a weird stinging sensation and I told my sister to try it and she said it feels weird on her as well. The product isn't expired and I'm wondering if this is normal or maybe we're allergic to one of its ingredients

Sounds like it could be an allergic reaction right enough. I'm sure one of the other ladies will be able to help with the full ingredient list for it as never ordered that one myself.

I could be wrong, but it does look like they released another 2 new value sets - a sally box's and a grinif rose box

@ I've seen reviews of that product (the Purederm?) that also complain about that. I'm not sure what the ingredients are, but it seems that several people are experiencing the same reaction. Which variety did you get? Maybe it's in one type but not the other.

What do you ladies think about the recipe by nature value set that they released some time ago? (I missed the first set) ^^

if you have drier skin, you will love the facial mist!  I felt it was too much for my skin type (oily).   A lot of ladies here rave about that facial mist.  The slowganics cleanser is fantastic, have envy over those facial sheet masks.

That snail serum comes in a HUGE bottle.    I don't know if it works, because I gave it to someone else would appreciate it more, but I bet someone here can speak to it.

Yeah, those look new right enough. I'm at mask overload at the moment so while the Sally's box seems to contain a lot of masks, I honestly do not need any more until about June at the earliest (and that's using two masks a week). I also bought the Milkydress rose set which is essentially very similar to the Grinif box so think I'll pass on these two. Wonder if this is the way they are going - value sets from one vendor (makes it easier for stock purchase I suppose) rather than mystery boxes. In one way its better for those that are new to Korean beauty products as they can see exactly what they are getting but do hope they release at least one "themed / mystery" box each month as like many ladies here, I like the mystery element of never exactly knowing what you're going to get lol!!

I'm tempted by the Grinif Rose set because I missed the Milkydress rose one, and I LOVE the Grinif Queen of Rose Eye Cream that I got in the While You Were Sleeping box.  But I have the Benton set coming from Memebox, the milk bag from Beauteque, and my first sub bag from Beauteque, so I don't need anything else right now.

Wonder if they will release boxes on a Friday (as they seemed to be doing that before the advent thingy). Even if it was just once a week, I'd be happy with that so long as there were sufficient quantities (though NOT CPM2 quantities I hasten to add lol!!).

 

Received 3 boxes today whoohooo but Empress box (which was shipped the longest time ago) is MIA between London and Scotland. Hoping it'll turn up tomorrow as back to work on Wednesday (for one day this week as had loads of annual leave to take with being off most of the summer on sick leave). Was sooo nice not having to get up this morning (did get daughter ready for nursery but back to bed afterwards).

 

Now to plan a 5 yr olds birthday party..,wish me luck!!

Hi, long time lurker here.

 

Today i received my global 17 and it was missing three items!! (the lip palette, the sunscreen and the spot cream). Does anyone have a similar experience and can help me with the actions i should take? I mean the missing items aren't really something i've wanted but paying 23$ dollars for a cleanser, some hair masks and a shara shara cream is outrageous and i want a refund :/

 

Also, the total weight of the box was 0.73kg. Anyone who received their global 17, how much did yours weigh?

I received my global a while ago, so I don't remember how much it weighed.  Take a picture of your box with all of the items in it (yes, they will ask you for "missing items" pictures - haha) and go to the help center on memebox - you will see a link to contact them at the bottom of the page

 

give all of your information, what was missing, the total weight, a pic of the box, a picture of the wrapper with the address on it and your memeaccount email address and order number.

 

they will give you points for the missing items.

I'm probably going to buy the Grinif set. Grinif's products are high quality and really good. I use the collagen mixed with my foundation and its made my skin 100% better.
