Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

Just got an email from Memebox... "Oh Em Gee – You Forgot About Your Korean Beauty Starter Set #2 Sampler Kit?" Please stop asking me to buy things that are sold out, it just makes it worse :(

Ouch, that sucks.

 

Memebox,

I submitted my first blog review to Memebox a couple days ago and still haven't heard back about points. :( How long does it usually take? I was hoping to get some by now to use on a box...

There is only one person who handles the points on reviews and she also is the only one handling affiliates, so she is really busy.  She also was on vacation last week, so she has a lot of catching up to do.  I waited 3 weeks for my points this month, because of this.  I don't think you will wait 3 weeks, but it probably will be next week - she might get to it before the weekend, but I wouldn't count on it.

 

Also, she reads every review.  So, that is pretty time consuming :)

I got so used to memebox doing minimal things overnight, that waking up to a bunch of new things is almost confusing. Takes me a few minutes (and reading here) to sort out what's going on. Got so excited about that sampler pouch, but I didn't notice it was sold out. It would have been nice is some of the restocks etc took place during different times of the day, but I can't even be bothered to get annoyed with it.

I got the Detox and mystery box as I was asleep during the other stuff and would have liked to of had a chance to get the other stuff. Oh well, I guess it was not meant to be.

 

This thread is back like the old days, pages and pages to read. It's nice to be back to seeing the boxes being released and the excitement on here. Just last month we all though there would be no more boxes. It's becoming fun again and my wallet is screaming at me!

I just wish they would release them in a more reasonable hour - would 10 am EST be good for all timezones?  I have no idea!

Not really it would screw the Aussies instead and the Japanese and anyone on those time zones

well, they could at least stagger it so the US, Canada and everyone in our timezone doesn't get screwed all of the time!

I have missed literally everything I would have been interested in this week (Soothing Sista, Chocolate Mania, Foot Therapy, and Tea), due to cherishing my sleep. Ah, well. I get to keep my money and keep chipping away at my rather sizable existing stash, so it's for the best. I did Meme-inventory recently, and realized that I am drowning in moisturizer - I have no idea how I'm going to use it all up before it expires.

 

I'm really excited for everyone who managed to grab something special! <3

Tbh I have seen releases at 3am, 7am, 9am, 5pm and other times gmt in the past. Normally 7am though which means three of eight days I will miss out as hubby gets up with beany.

Here's an idea they could run with...having two releases for each box. Half at one time, other half 12 hours later. That way people round the world would at least have a chance of snagging a box (and not having to wake up at the crack of dawn or middle of the night). Would be easy enough to programme say 100 boxes to go live at 7am GMT and then another 100 (or whatever) 12 hours later...

They used to do this! They'd release boxes for VIPs in the morning (EST), then release them again for the non-VIPs in the afternoon. It was great!

 

ETA: they did this with new boxes, not restocks.

Yeah, but only VIPs knew about it. Having two release times would allow the newbies a chance at getting a new box as I remember when I first started trying to get a memebox, everything always seemed to be sold out! Yes it would still be a free for all at both these times but would be a little bit fairer for those who either can't nor want to get up in the middle of the night.

There seems to be so few of the restocked boxes and those value sets, that it would be hard to break them up into multiple stocking times. I think rotating the restock time each day would have be a nice touch. It's supposed to be customer appreciation week, not force our customers in the EST zone to mess up their sleep week. 

 

ETA: I know the time sucks for other time zones too, I'm just not familiar with them personally.

So, it's now the 24th in South Korea, is that the Big Box event over then and there will be no further restocks? Kinda expected a bit more today than just the couple of new boxes and one value set....

@@coffeecardigan we can't post coupon codes here but many of us blog about memebox and they would be there.

 

I personally went for the detox and renew box.   Baby soft skin sounds like it would be good for dry skin.

 

If you look in the sold out section, Oh! My Lips is still in stock and that is a really nice lip care box.  So is F/W Natural Makeup, but that isn't natural makeup.  If you like glitter and strobe cream, that box will make you happy!

Thanks for the suggestions!  

On a side note, why are we not able to post coupon codes on MUT anymore?  Just curious!  I missed the memo! :-)

I've never tried Memebox, but I think this might be the month! Any suggestions or coupon codes? The Mystery Box intrigues me!

Hi there's normally a few folk with affiliate codes for $3 off $30 spend (it'll accept a $29.99 box though) if you do a google search as its against forum rules to post those links I'm afraid. A lot of the bloggers have them on their websites..

 

Be warned, once you start though...you'll be addicted when the boxes start arriving lol!!

 

Memebox can be dead frustrating most of the time...they have a weird business ethic but most of the time, the products are very good. Depending where in the world you are, snail mail shipping usually takes a couple of weeks. Express shipping 3-5 days but its expensive ($18.99 per box usually). The boxes now seem to contain 5 items. there are literally hundreds of you tube clips showing what's in some of the older boxes and Instagram has photos of more recent ones so you can see what's in the box. There's also the spoiler thread which has up to date reveals as soon as someone gets a box that's not already been unveiled.

 

Have fun!!

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
