Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping that someone can help me learn more about how to (as easily as possible) translate the product ingredients from Korean to English. I have to take particular care with the products that I use and I find KB especially appealing because they tend to use more natural ingredients but that doesn't mean that I can use everything and I hesitate to use products when I can't figure out what they actually contain. I have some vague memory (or maybe it was all a dream) that there was some way to get all of those lovely Korean characters to become English words with meaning I could understand. Anyone?  (and I ask here because in my potential dream reference of a way to do this, I think that it was on this thread). Thank you!

This doesn't always work out so well, but there's a Google Translate phone app. It allows you to take a picture of the text you are trying to translate then translate it for you. I know that are constantly trying to update it because when I first downloaded it, there were a lot of kinks. The newest update made it a little better but it still doesn't always work. 

 

I also look for the products home websites and use Google translate on it in general to find the translations, but that can take more time.  However, for both ways, sometime the ingredients don't translate over correctly.

Decided I'd treat hubby to the gentleman set as its only $12 and will do as a valentine day present. He's using one of the moisturisers from one of my boxes at the moment so might like a few more products but that are aimed more towards him.

 

Did a triple cleanse last night - etude house oil, tony moly grapefruit foaming cleaner then a Ren hot cloth (which I love and feel gives me the best cleanse out the lot of them). Added some Milkydress rose toner and finished with Milkydress eye gel and Mizon starfish all in one. Before i went to bed i added the Piseo and...No spots today! (result as in the past my face would have been a mass of red angry welts with that many products!). Still think I'm a long way from finding holy grail products that make me look $1 million but hubby said my face was looking a lot brighter and smoother so there's hope yet for the old girl!

I wish I could try the Mangchee sometimes.

I'm using this one on days when my skin is clear but feels bleh and needs plumping:

Wake up to butt soft skin each time :)

Not sure what everyone thinks of it. Very stringy texture this.

 

 

I love this product! I just finished the tube and I'm sad. It was an absolute lifesaver for my dehydrated skin.

I' m waiting for spoilers on the global #19, my last Memebox. It's a bit sad that they don't want to send to my country (Denmark) any longer. I have a lot of stuff after receiving 42 memeboxes but looking at their website and knowing it is out of reach even if I have 22 meme points sitting in my account is sad. I' m on a forced no meme buy. My husband is also sad. He loves all the strange products I make him try. And every time I receive a package he asks if it's from Memebox and if there is a sheet mask in it for him :-) ....... that over! Sob...

Dunno if anyone else talked about this, but two spoilers for Best Beauty Forward, still available:

 

 

 

Spoiler #1 RIMBI Powerful Treatment Essence 125ml -retailstat $34
Powerful Treatment Essence functions as a toner and essence, and is enriched with 85 percent galactomyces ferment filtrate — a key ingredient that penetrates deep into the skin to balance the skin's renewal process and boost the skin’s radiance. It is also formulated with nourishing vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and organic acids to enhance the efficacy of the complete skincare ritual. With daily application, this essence hydrates, brightens, diminishes the look and size of wrinkles, improves texture and clarity, and contributes to a more beautiful, balanced, and glowing complexion.

Spoiler #2 W.LAB 3P+ CO2 Pore Crown Pack: Gel Syringe 6g * 1ea + 1 Mask Sheet
These powerful yet gentle blackhead butterfly patches instantly remove blackheads and unclog pores while tightening and cleansing the pores. Complete with a carbonated gel syringe and a butterfly shape mask sheet, this two-step system features optimal pore-purifying benefits for clear, healthy-looking skin. The refreshing, fizzy carbonated formula gets down deep into the pores to remove the deepest, darkest pore-dwellers, and stimulate the skin to exfoliate dead surface skin, and soothing tea tree and green tea soothe the skin. The results? Skin is healthy, glowing, and radiant.

 

 

And I got an e-mail about 10% off discount code for "select boxes", all of which are laughably terrible.

@@Bunbunny - yeah, it's all the boxes they can't give away (just about!). Wasn't interested when they came out, not interested with a few dollars off the price.

 

Do want to see what's in baby soft skin box as was thinking about getting that one once it had been unboxed. Not in a mad rush though..

Slightly off-topic as far as new & fun stuff goes, but I resubmitted a one-star review for the Cleopatra box, since Memebox removed my previous one as well as all the other negative reviews.  We'll see if they post it.  I tend to doubt they will.  Bah.

They posted it, amazing!  So I take back my doubts.  Now, you think they will allow it to stay?  What happened to all the other negative reviews on this and so many other boxes??

I always thought their reviews was flawed anyway - allowing people to post when they hadnt even bought the box (but liked the sound of it so left 5 stars!?). They should have it linked to your account so you can ONLY post a review once the box has been delivered. They'd still get the negative reviews for rubbish boxes but at least they would be from people that bought the box so more likely to be an accurate reflection of what its like.

 

As for the "review to win", that's crap as everyone would say "oh, I'd like to try" and give 5 stars...even if its paint stripper and causes 3rd degree burns! Always thought that was a total waste of time...though maybe because they never sent me anything free lol!!

I wonder why some people got 10% select box codes and some didn't. I have VIP and never received such a code this morning, I guess they don't like me :P

I really like sweet smelling products so I like Valentine's Day #2, but I'm on a low-buy and I just bought Detox and Renew. I can only use one affiliate discount code a month even if they're different right?

I got the random 10% off code but since it was for a bunch of crappy boxes, it didn't really sway me to get any of them LOL

I got the random 10% code too - maybe it has to do with the fact that I haven't bought a box in ages? Last one purchased was during the Black Friday restock, though I have placed a shop order recently.

 

ETA: I agree that the selection of boxes for the code was less than thrilling.

My coupon for the code came from the memebox affiliate email address. Maybe it's connected to something there. A going away present for those of us who haven't signed up for the new affiliate program? 

 

Nevermind, I take that back. I just realized the code came to my account that hasn't ordered anything in months, not my affiliate account.

I'd be more interested in the valentine's day boxes if they were express shipping. Similar to the Christmas and Thanksgiving boxes.

 

The new value boxes make me sad. $18.99 is not a bargain. I'd be okay if it was $13.99 since that would be the total price of normal shipping.

Nope, I've never been an affliate and I got the code. I also did buy some this month.

 

So many new boxes - what to do?  :lol:

If anyone has a 10% off code they're not using, feel free to send it my way :)

 

Also, Lucky 13 and Global 19 in spoilers thread.

I got the seeds and flowers...I know, what a gamble, right?  Can only hope that they don't make it a rose centric box...

    • Tinder's basically the best option out there other than social media which is usually iffy, and Lex is another good one, that's if you're gay at all.
    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
