Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

The products are fine but then if you was a newbie just pick a global box or one on the restocks. This looks so over priced it's painful to actually read . I mean USA customers are no fools but this is to get memebox fans to buy more . It's not aimed at a newbie starting out .

Memebox has no logical thinking at all

I purchased it to see how long it takes to deliver, if the boxes are the same and to report on it for my readers

 

I will use the products, but I agree, it is expensive - 4 items - we do get that 20% off code (but that is only good for 3 uses, for VIP members only AND only good for a limited time...) so if they think they can continue to curate these boxes at that high price point, they are loco.

 

they should have let customers CHOOSE the cleansing foam as well, at this price.  At least with Beauteque, they allow some choice.

The new usa box is a good deal if you want to buy anyway 3-4 of these products. Otherwise you just buy the items individually. I am not jealous of this box! And I am pleased that memebox finally found out a way to send an email about usa offers only to usa residents!

 

I feel a bit empty. I was hoping for something more today... I missed all the restocks and anyway I didn't want any of these boxes...

I hope that they do more this week.  I really want the globals to come back.  It would be nice.

Probably going to miss any restocks tomorrow as I've to do a site visit which means sitting on a train for over and hour. Reception is always patchy but knowing my luck, that's when the boxes I've been hoping for will be restocked.

 

Oh well, wha's fir ye will nae gang by ye (as they say...)

I still don't understand why they haven't sold global 19 by itself... it doesn't make sense...

They'll probably release it this week in a fanfare of "oh look, we've released a new box for you all - aren't we nice and considerate and appreciating all our customers!?"

 

Personally, I wish they'd just answer their emails!!!

The value on that USA shop is iffy. 3 of the items cost about $15 combined on RRS (excluding shipping). I can't find the serum in any of the usual stores, only listed at ClubClio for $34. So I guess as long as you really want the serum and you're okay with the other products it's sort of alright. You're saving a few dollars, but yeah, I'm not jealous I can't order it at all.

LOL! Translation?

 

This reminds me of the time that after spending a few months in Edinburgh one of the first things I did once I got back home was to rent the movie Trainspotting because I figured I had the best chance at the time of understanding some of the accents and dialogue without having to rely on subtitles...

Basically its an old saying of what's meant to be, will be. I.e. if you're meant to get something, it will happen but if not, there's not a lot you can do about it.

 

As for Trainspotting - think a lot of foreigners saw a side of Edinburgh they never thought existed lol! Most of those areas have since been redeveloped (privately) and the "problem" families rehoused elsewhere (some to villages on the outskirts of the city). Its definitely not as bad as it was say 15 years ago.

 

I work for an organisation that is involved in child welfare and some of the staff have seen 3 generations through the system..,granny, daughter/ son and now grandchild and they often know more about the legalities than the lawyers themselves...

@Alidolly  What I remember most about Edinburgh besides rich history, beautiful architecture, breathtaking view from Arthur's seat is how safe I felt walking around the city (and I walked everywhere). Unfortunately I can't say the same about feeling safe in some areas of my city... 

 

Memebox part of post:  As for memebox restocks, I don't think I can handle anymore of the staying up late at night this week hoping to snag restocks of boxes I missed the first time around and still be able to function at work. I seriously don't know how people on the east coast (US and Canada) are able to survive. I can only imagine lots of coffee and Red Bull involved post restock events...

I just don't do it anymore lol Maybe if they were releasing the global #19 Id be all on that, but not for restocks.

thank you!!

 

yes, that facial scrub is a killer.  You leave it on for 30 seconds max otherwise your skin will feel like it is peeling off.   I wish they would restock that 5 Seeds Apple Scrub.  They have the link out there on memeland, but it is out of stock - however, if everyone puts it in their wishlist, they might carry it again :)

 

I didn't get anything (so far) with the restocks. I am hoping for the globals to be released and maybe some new boxes (venom venom venom box please...) this week.

Definitely excited for Global releases as they've become some of my favorites. Don't get me wrong, a few have totally sucked, but in general I'm always pleased with them. ;)

 

I definitely need to email Meme about the apple scrub. I have two now but I don't want to open them until I absolutely have to because I can't find them anywhere other than a site I am clueless how to order from.

I take that back - if they restocked memebox global #2, I would get that one.   For the May Coop.  But I doubt they will go back that far.

You actually made me search for Global #2 and see what it was about. I believe I found a Coffee Break with Dani YouTube video for it (I just love her and she's gorgeous!) as long as it's the one that includes a 3 pack of the Tea Tocs you love? That alone would make me think you would want another. Haha

@MemeJunkie  testerkorea is pretty easy to order from.  You can put in a want in their forums, and they usually can stock it.  If it gets to that, you can pm me and I can help you with that and ordering.

 

that is the box!!  I saw that review too :)

I'm tempted by Foot Therapy. Hmmm.   I think I'll wait to see if more restocks happen (and if I can get the good ones before they're gone!), and maybe buy Foot Therapy and one more, assuming FT stays in stock.

I'm tempted to grab it too--I've never really done much to take care of my feet (I often walk barefoot outside in the summer, so I don't want the bottoms of them to be too soft), but sandal season will be here soon enough, and it'll be nice to have pretty feet. I think I'm gonna grab the box!

I highly recommend foot therapy - I purchased two of them!

Hee, yes, I was actually just talking about this in the Beauteque thread!  I have certain calluses that I want to keep, as they've been hard-earned, and regaining them is a painful process (as I found out this summer after using a foot peeling mask...)   But I want to keep up with smooth heels and toes and sides! I can use everything in that box aside from the foot peeling mask, and I know I will eventually succumb to temptation and use one of those again, anyway.  ;)

 

I really like the other with shayan foot file I got in Foot Care 2.  I'd be happy with a backup.

Do you all think that there might be another restock tonight? Trying to decide whether to go to bed at a reasonable time tonight or invest in some heavy-duty undereye concealer...

Newbie here... seems like these re-stocks should actually be good for me, since I work nights and can keep half an eye out for them! So far the only thing coming to me is the Fun Ingredients box I ordered before seeing the news about this re-stocking business and learning from you ladies that $40 is probably too high (also getting the Beauteque milk bag), so hopefully I can pick up a box or two to round out the routine and start me off right!
