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!

    • 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.
