@  The dermalift cream is an LG brand.  So it's totally solid.  *Same parent company as O Hui and Su:m37, belif, etc. -but you probably know that. :)

@ I only swatched mine for the blog and fell in love with it, too! Haha! Wasn't expecting that because the packaging is so unassuming :D

I only found out when I looked at the website, actually! My first response was

"ha, good luck lifting anything on this body, you sad drugstore body lotion." lol In fact, it lifted my face moisture levels very well! I bought four more tubes already! hahahah

finally got my missing eye shadow and winter mask box, but like most people, patting water leaked. My interest and faith in memebox has decreased so much that I don't even want to send in an email about the leak to get some points back. 

 

finally used my 12 pts on the fun ingredient box and now I feel like I can move on. Been buying more from roserose and looking at beauteque and 3b. :) I'm actually quite excited to move away from memebox and discover what other sites have to offer!

The Naked boxes are sold out. Must not have had that many.

They've restocked both boxes and there is at least 100 of the for friends one (didn't check the other one as already purchased that one).

 

Would consider the friends one if they gave me some points for the patting water but not at $40.

Yeah I ordered on the first. It is because of a hand cream being oos. Tbh they shouldn't have offered the option if they didn't have it.

I ordered on first and I am in same boat.

@@Jane I chose the other cream not the Secret Key one. So it seems that they may have run out of even more products.

No matter what, I think we should have been informed about the delay and it'd be nice to hear from them after trying to contact them a few times and not receiving any updates for almost 2 weeks.

Personally, I don't see the appeal of Beauteque and 3B, but I might buy a Peach & Lily box if they offer another one in the future. I don't care about bad CS as long as I get what I pay for, and right now even with all the issues, Memebox is still the best value for my money. I also like the brands featured in Memebox way more: most of the products in 3B and Beauteque are mass-market that I can get anywhere, while Memeboxes often include brands that I can't get anywhere else, except maybe through Avecko. I'm a sucker for exclusivity.

Oh that doesn't bode well for my order of the 8th then...I had already noticed they'd changed one of the products (think it was the hand cream) from what they'd first advertised but wasn't too bothered. I will be bothered if they don't keep me informed of the shipping as I can't check the status online and it'll be my last bag.

 

Not heard back from memebox about the patting water. Will leave it a few days then chase again (to keep it related to memebox lol!)

I'll get another Snow White box if they restock it :) And maybe Next Best Thing in Skincare, that I passed on and then regretted it.

Oh, the irony. In other words are profits are suffering.. We want more money

Biggest part of restocks and boxes of 2015 .

Wow doesn't bode well for 2 weeks into the year .

I'm still waiting for global 19 to be sold separate I need to buy for my friend.

 

To be honest it has to be a real flippin good box for me to buy 2 boxes + of and products I am using already . I'm not going to buy restocks for one product no more as I either have back up or sourced cheaper elsewhere .

I'd rather they keep global numbered box . Mask box pore care boxes and did a monthly limited edition box full of wow products and fullsize and samples for a well curated box if pay $29 if it was like that .

Also will these new and restocked boxes also be higher priced now .

If they are at the higher price they can sing for it. No way would I be paying more for boxes already advertised previously for $23. I'm also guessing they'll have like 5 boxes of each so it'll look like lots of people have bought them when they sell out quickly. The only box I think I missed (repeatedly) is the next best thing in skincare. The rest, I can live without...though the Faceshop one is cute..

I hope for their sake that they won't increase the prices for the old boxes because that will just be the final straw for a lot more people.

 

I actually found that email funny after all we've talked about lately. I'm curious to see how well the 'event' will actually out.

The Korean website list it as $22/22,000 won. To be honest, we had $23 boxes that had values even higher than this box. So it's not really that great of a box. 

 

Edit: Sorry, not directing it at you or anything. Just meant overall the value is comparable to previous $23 box and does not deserve a $40 price tag. 

 

No worries, I didn't take it personally.  :)

 

I think I misspoke -- I didn't mean it was a good value box, but rather than Memebox weren't inflating the prices of the products too much on their info card.

 

This major restock promotion...I'm not holding my breath or staying up late for it. I'd love to get some of those boxes (Jeju, for example), but since I know what's in them I can just purchase the products I want directly on a site that has better shipping charges, especially if there's no value sets for faster shipping.

    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  My Advent calendar has been nice, but my week was unlucky. First there was the broken water heater, then my brother had a flat tire, my father had a flat tire, and my brother had a mishap where he hit the mailbox at my work with his car when he came to pick me up  - I am so ashamed. My work is slow so they cut everybody's hours. The paychecks are going to be low, It's just for the holidays, they said. But who knows. This all happened in one week.  I don't know if I will be able to pay off my credit card by the end of the year as I wanted, and if I will be able to do the January goal I had planned. At least I finished my Christmas shopping and mailing for friends and family! I found it difficult. This weekend I need to clean and make a Plan B.
