Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

I'm put off by these $40 and $30 releases. After the U.S. exchange that $40 becomes $48 for us. Not to mention all the value sets suddenly breaking into the $30 range and $50 level.

 

I'm totally uninspired by this re-stock. The last good re-stock I had heart palpitations ... Lol

 

Although the re-stocks are a great opportunity to get boxes at normal prices, I feel like they're gonna have to try a lot harder to bring the magic back. I'm just not feeling the excitement.

I have almost all the boxes in the restock, including the ones not restocked at this time yet. It seems they are restocking recent boxes, not boxes that were released 6-9 months ago. 

Oh, and I got the Superfood box in a restock and I HATE it. So, preferences definitely are individual things, aren't they? :) I bought Superfood based on all the reviews I had read, but it is just not my style.

 

However, I am very glad to have snagged a Soothing Sista box. :)

 

I think there's almost always something GOOD on Memebox if we look with a positive outlook.

I'm waffling on getting omg4 for the abalone cream. I haven't found any reviews besides the initial ones. Anyone use it for awhile? Thoughts?

 

I have dry skin which is also a bit sensitive. This is supposed to be a marvelous cream, but it was not moisturizing enough for me to bother with it. I also do NOT like products which advertise any whitening properties, because I don't need any whitening/ brightening properties..

It probably was the best thing in OMG4, but that's not saying a lot at all, IMO. :)

JMO.. if you want whitening and some moisturizing, the Abalone cream might be great for you. :)

Wonder if perhaps tomorrow they will release a new box? The email last week did say a mixture of old and new...

 

If its $40 though they can bolt....especially if its only got the 5 products. Don't mind paying $30 including shipping but for an "unknown" box, just not going to take the chance now.

You have a point, but it seems tha the Mangchee items and the Dear by Emprani Bounce Cheese cream has been in the Global Shop since Black Friday boxes. 

 

Probably wishful thinking on my part because this is my all time favorite Memebox. And I ended up buying a wine sleeping pack that's better than the Innisfree peeling gel would have been for my sensitive skin ( bought it also).

I grabbed the peeling gel off of HonestSkin when I learned I wouldn't be getting a box with it, and then bought the Holika Holika red wine sleeping pack off of amazon (I think you might have posted about it then) to help make me feel better about it all, lol. I really like the sleeping pack!

I'm sure this has been mentioned but why is global 17 $29.99 plus shipping now? I'm sure I got it for $23.99....

Looks like $23 + $6.99 shipping to me still.

 

ETA: It looks like when the page finishes loading now, it automatically chooses the $6.99 shipping option and updates the total on the page. So it's still $23 for the box.

 I didn't feel any goodness while using it, but again, we are all different. If you want it, this is probably the least expensive way to get it. :)

LOVE the HH wine sleeping pack!

 

ETA I wonder what they think about us collective Meme addicts annihilating their site as boxes come up before they've even created the sale page?! They need to work faster apparently.

It took me a long time to try the creams in the W/C box. I count the Mangchee cream and the Emprani bounce cheese to be HG products for my skin.

And yes, the Holika Holika white wine sleeping pack is something I never imagined would be so lovely. :)

I use it on top of every skin care regimen, night and day, during the winter. 

IDK if the red wine sleeping pack has any real differences with the white one, but OMG, I love the moisturization and the scent of the Holika Holika White Wine one. :) 

Thanks, I'm glad you got one and liked it too!!!

I think the white wine one is more of a cream and is brightening, while the red wine one has a jelly-like texture and is firming. The red wine one smells like grape candy, which isn't great, but it fades quickly.

 

I actually haven't tried any of the creams (or anything else) from the w&c box yet. I have other creams expiring sooner that I need to make myself use first, but I'm looking forward to the bounce cheese cream and mangchee mask!

I'm sure they're going " Ka- ching" every time a box sells out, especially when we have found them early LOL. :) This is their work day time, right? 

MUT is so awesome. :)

Then I need the red one. :)

I wasn't sure which one to buy at all.. Amazon.com has a great price on them from US sellers, or did have..

I am in love with the mangchee products in w and c. Love love love the smell and great for my dry skin. I use the mask as my last stage after moisturiser and love it.

Will start using it again when I finish this awful Vichy moisturiser, as not using it as this is so greasy... Yuck yuck yuck.

NOT a fan of Vichy at all. A sub box, forget which one, sent me a box full of the moisturizing products about a year ago to try and review. I struggled to find the positives. 

Get that Mangchee out and use it while the weather is cold. :)

I just noticed the banner for the "box party" says "last chance to get restocks". Guess that means goodbye to the old great boxes.

Isn't it cute? I saved the box, it's all so cute and detailed. :)

I just found a red wine one on Amazon.com from a US seller for $12 with free shipping. Can't beat that. :)

Well, to be honest, lots of these restocks are on their 3rd restock or so. ( I'm pretty sure I missed Soothing Sista twice before getting one tonight).

 

There's only so much interest in the boxes which have more comebacks than Elvis in Vegas,  you know? :)

I think you'll love it! The texture is quite fun, you scoop it out and when you open it up the next day, the surface is completely smooth again.

Looks like I'll be well- stocked in the cheese facial cream and wine sleeping pack category.

I FORGOT that I ordered the new Memebox " Fun Ingredients" Nakedbox.

It has:This NAKEDBOX includes: ($120 Value for $40 + Free Shipping)


  • MAY SPRINGS Banana & Moringa Awesome Cream ($40)
  • SKINAZ Mozzarella Cheese Cream ($32)
  • TONYMOLY Magic Food Banana Hand Milk ($7)
  • HOLIKA HOLIKA Wine Therapy Sleeping Mask ($15)
    (1 Randomly selected from Red Wine and White Wine)
  •  
  • ORIGINAL RAW Honey Finger Essence ($26)
  •  

I was so focused on the Original Raw and the 2 Banana ingredient products, I forgot about the HH wine sleeping pack and the Skinaz cheese cream. I have NO idea how good the quality of Skinaz products are, though. It's going to have to be really great to match Emprani and Ladykins.

 

I'm going to bed before I order a third Foot Therapy box. I LOVE that box. :) 
( The jojoba heel patches are so great, I use them up first).

Woke up at 5am but didn't see anything, other than Soothing Sista, that was on my Meme Wishlist I put together. I suppose that's a good thing. :)

 

@@biancardi - Finally (really) going through all the boxes I received in December and putting together a care package for you. I'm dying to get the Christmas decorations down and up in the attic but had a dozen pink boxes under the tree. As they came in I just kept throwing them under there as I had no where else to put them. I should have taken a photo, it was kind of cute!

 

ETA: I also think it was you that mentioned the Daltokki Facial Scrub was harsh. My goodness, is it! Decided to try it in the shower this morning, desperately trying to put off opening my 5 Seeds Apple Scrub, making sure not to let and sit and my face is still on fire! This stuff is headed to the bin for sure.

I'm so confused by Memebox's IT dept. Why are they doing all of this stuff 'live'? They could have just done all of the work beforehand and scheduled a site refresh include the new page and box stock all at once. I'm not an internet genius but even I know this is possible. It's so weird how they make their customers work for the boxes they want lol.

 

Anyways, the only boxes I really want are ones that aren't on the Box Party page, so I assume they aren't going to be restocked during the event. Was CoffeeBreakWithDani ever available on a restock? I've been trying to grab it since the initial release and still have had no luck!

    • No Buy Program Guide   I found a great new No Buy channel on YouTube (well it found me; it was in my recommended videos), a new No Buy channel from a New York concert pianist, Natalia Lavrova. I find this fascinating, because I love the world of classical music. Here is someone in my dream life, who loves shopping, and beauty subscriptions, who has credit card debt, and is doing a No Buy! I'll be fascinated to watch this channel and hear how this artist's No Buy goes as she is preparing for concert tours abroad! Ms. Lavrova has a really good Shop My Stash video with great tips on winter makeup colors, like icy pink highlighter. I looked for her piano performances on YouTube and they are stunning. This is going to be a big inspiration for me!   
    • I made it through the night with no buying! I slept through the shopping craving like it was an illness. I woke up after the 12 hours of sleep and as I was waking up I thought of a happy time in the 90's. I was young; all my family members were alive. I was at a Bond film, Tomorrow Never Dies, (I love James Bond and don't know what I am going to do when his new film is released, since I'm not allowed money for entertainment on my No Buy). On the floor near my feet was a big bag of Estee Lauder products that I had just gotten with my birthday and Christmas money. I had a full size moisturizer and a huge PWP, beautiful. The film had a great ending. The Bond girl was underwater, running out of air, and just in time, there's James Bond, the theme music resumes! Great scene! And walking around the mall after, how happy I felt! And today I am sad that time is gone, many family members are gone, life is sadder, time is running out, and I did not use that bag of Estee Lauder products up! I probably used them a few times and then threw them out and bought something else. And maybe if I had used every drop, in my mind, I could have held on to life, to time, to happiness. At any rate I would have had more money. If only we knew about No Buys and Project Pans then! This is just one of a million examples of how I think about this.  When I woke up Elle S was still analyzing her samples! She was talking about how her project taught her to evaluate (excellent video, Oct 1, 2017).  Last night in bed I took some photos of samples I need to use up. Sorry for so many long posts, but I've really had to work on this for the last 24 hours. Primers, shower gels and body scrub, toners, and masques.   
    • I haven't given in and bought anything yet, though I wanted to. I went to bed early (I think it was 5 pm), and I was listening to Elle S 365 Days of Samples playlist on YouTube. It is inspiring. Elle is detailed, persevering, and creative. I was very cozy, and I dreamed I was going to a spa in Europe. I was so excited about the spa, and about the skin care products the spa was going to have in the room for us. My mother was going with me, and I told her I was going to bring a minimal amount of beauty products in my suitcase, because we would be getting some from the spa. When I woke up I was sad, because the dream was so nice. Now I just woke up and I'm hot and thirsty, but the craving to shop has gone down somewhat. Before I went to sleep I looked in my sample boxes. I saw a beautiful mini lotion with a gold bow on the package that I got for Christmas and had already forgotten about. The glittery gold bow sparkled beautifully in the light.  This while experience today of realizing I have been on No Buy so long without realizing it has been interesting. I have been keeping busy with other things. I began going to a a new religious congregation a month after I went back on No Buy (a different religion I wanted to learn about for a long, long time) and have been busy with that, and have been making new friends and socializing more. The new religion is one that fills my need for intellectual and artistic (through its liturgy) stimulation. I've met wonderful people. It's not always easy to keep going there, as I'm shy and reclusive, but I've kept it up. Maybe this is what made the time go so fast without me knowing it.  I guess I'll go and listen to some more 365 Days of Samples.   
    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.
