Memebox: Korean Beauty Box Service

Recommended Posts

Tbh they are good boxes from what is turning into a very crappy company that cares little about their customers.

 

Will I review honestly? Yes, but then again most of my readers and viewers are aware of my views on memebox lol

 

Do, I expect to get my money back if I follow their rules but give them a bad review but the box a good review... Not really but I want the box

Ohhh post spoilers if it is! That way I can cancel if it's bad haha

Ah, it's not that set after all - its the baby soft set (forgot about those!) plus some of that spider stuff. Still hoping they dispatch the valentines batch before the 16th as would be lovely to get it for my birthday (or just after at least). On the mobile so wasn't able to check as was going into a meeting so apologies for that!

If anyone is still here after all of the drama, as I would hate to lose touch with my international friends that I have made here, would folks like a K-Beauty Spa Night Sunday thread?  It doesn't have be on a sunday or anything, but more like a pampering thread - what products you used and a rave (or rant) from them?  That could go into the K-beauty forum, so it doesn't have to be a memebox product.  

 

I honestly love reading what you all have purchased and what works for you - some of the items I have bought from other sites was because they were mentioned here or on the k-beauty thread.

 

I know it was discussed late last year (in november on this thread), but we didn't have a k-beauty forum back, so I think that is why it never got created.

Nooooo! I wanted that Chocolate or Desserts Box soo badly! I almost wish I didn't know I missed a window by sleeping..stupid world and Korea being up when I'm asleep!  :( 

 

@@biancardi, I would..it's all new to me, and since I missed the Memebox train, everything I get outside of the Seeds and Flowers box will be from places like rubyrubyshop and the like. I just discovered this place and none of my friends are into much more than the counter at Walgreen's when it comes to makeup/beauty stuffs.

@artemiss  we do have a korean beauty thread, where everything is discussed outside of Memebox (and even then some memebox - haha) , but since we now have a K-beauty forum created, we can actually have a dedicated thread on hauls (thanks to suggestions here)  and things like Spa Night Sunday Pampering or whatever.

 

 

It might be fun!  I know I am on the korean beauty thread a lot as I learned a ton of stuff there as well.

So... did anyone buy any of those review boxes? I think it could be an awesome chance for us to review some (with a $30+ deposit imposed of course lol). I quite trust Lauren for this event though. Lol is it too obvi I'm always cheering for Lauren haha.

 

Anyways, @@biancardi, I do like the idea. Otherwise I find no purpose to visit often enough. Pampering sounds....divine. Maybe we could lit some scented candles around and serve up some camomile tea while we are at it! ;)

I think people are hanging round here till the final nail in internationals coffin had been bashed in and then will move over to K beauty (as we won't be able to comment on any Memeboxes released to the US other than saying "oh that one looked nice....no, that one was way off theme etc" and I don't think that would last long tbh.

 

So wonder what other crap...I mean boxes they'll release for international to grab. What other products they've found lying about the place they want to offload to us before the for sale sign goes up on the warehouse door.

 

OMG 5 - mouse droppings serum....Cockroach hair essence, sawdust scrub...old Bic pen eyeliner (in blue or black only).

All sales are final and no cancellations or returns

 

Cost : $40 with FREE SHIPPING

 

Get it now before it flies (literally in the case of the cockroach hair essence) off the shelves!

Wonderful idea. I, too have been buying skincare stuffs that you guys have recommended here.

And now that I tried some products I would like to share my favourite items as well!

I like the idea for sure! I also would love a dedicated hauls thread. There's always something that catches my eye and makes me add to my wishlist.

Sad. My last bright pink box was delivered today. At least it's ending on a positive note with the Benton Value set.

Would like to see a dedicated sales thread so if anyone spots a bargain (Etude House have FREE international shipping over $50 spend at the moment as part of their princess day thing) for example or if a certain online store like Testerkorea has a particular brand at extra discount like the Roseroseshop had the Mizon products with free shipping. I know people post these but can get lost in the chatter so a dedicated thread would mean people could see anything new quickly...what do you all think? Would that be useful?

I like that.  I miss out on a lot of sales with shops as my inbox gets so full, that I just delete stuff.

Ohh I would love to see a "help me find x" and "help me find the best deal" thread. I thought about doing that on my blog or social media, but I get overwhelmed with answering messages (answering email is about 110% of my job these days, sadly) so I don't want it to collapse. But I think plenty of people would be willing to keep their eyes open for deals and special products.

Ok...I've added a sales thread on the K-Beauty forum. If there are loads of other threads added then I'll ask that it be made a sticky thread but should be ok at the moment as there's not that much over there.

 

So, if you spot a K bargain on the interwebby doodah, can enable others to part with their hard earned cash...*

 

*i accept no liability when OHs wonder where the money is going or for credit card statements at the end of the month!

Yeah there's issues with tk atm. Some things are showing in stock when not. Had to find a link for a lady on Instagram but sadly she couldn't purchase despite it saying in stock.

Received my Secret Key Starting Treatment masks from Memebox today. They were 25.00 with free shipping for 20 masks which is an amazing deal. Was looking at ebay and the cheapest is 11 for 5. Once in awhile I'm pretty thrilled with a purchase.

I like all the ideas for new threads. Knowing about K-Beauty sales would be great!

 

I also think the pamper / spa night sounds fun! Each week a type of product could be featured for people to do. So if sheet masks is on a pamper night, we all put on a sheet mask antd can give our thoughts on the one we used.

Well, Memebox cancelled Soothing Sista for me. I was kinda hoping it wouldn't go through since I hadn't known about the free review thing until after I'd emailed asking to cancel. Boo! Ah well, wasn't meant to be lol! I did order the makeup edition #2 though, so will do attempt the whole review thing for that!

I bought finally the rapunzel box! I will try to get the full refund after writing a review but I wouldn't have bought it counting to get my money back... It will be nice for memebox  to do what it promises for once! Let's see!

I'm not sure how receptive everybody is to having a k-beauty forum here, but heck with it- I started a thread for current routines because I want to know what everybody is using :blush:

    • Moisturizer is also the best gift for someone.  The best moisturizer helps to get rid of skin related ailments and dry skin problem. So, I advise to chose the best moisturizer from the available brands in the market.
    • Finally I found a like-minded person in this. It's cool, you can win big winnings and, moreover, without leaving the house. I have been playing play n go slots for a year now, this resource has long existed in the field of gambling and if you have questions, I will be happy to help you.
    • There are many reasons to moisturize your skin with best moisturizer.  Always chose your best moisturizer. Dermatologists always advise  to moisturize the skin as moisturizer reduces the skin problems and increase the moisture level of the stratum corneum. Dryness is removed by the  Moisturizer and it prevents skin from drying out. 
    • It was two years ago this weekend, that I started to get ready for my 2018 No Buy, and I've come such a long way! I recall on the Saturday night, two years ago, overeating pizza and watching a mukbang channel on You Tube. I remember waking up really early on the Sunday morning feeling ill. I was googling small meals and I found myself on a forum about bariatric surgery. I was reading posts about all the hard work people put in for that kind of surgery. This inspired me, and the next day I ate a small healthy meal, early in the day. I had an amazing sleep on the Sunday night. Amazing dreams. When I woke up, I had all this motivation to do a No Buy for 2018! I haven't changed my weight or eating since then, but I did make a lot of progress on my debt, which is more important to me. I began right away listing all my debts, organizing my beauty items, and using up a few little odds and ends. My goal was to pay off one debt a month in 2018, and this was my list:  Jan - credit card $27.32 Feb - credit card $42.93 Mar - credit card $76.98 April - IRS debt $102.04 May - credit card - $242.86 June - credit card - $398.01 July - credit card $442.61 August - credit card $629.43 Sept - credit card $725.55 Oct - credit card $761.90 Nov - credit card - $946.69 Dec - credit card $985.76 I ended up making it half the way through the list in 2018. This year, I got burned out and stopped working on my No Buy until June, when I finished the rest of this list along with two additional debts. All except for the $761.90 debt that I had wanted to pay off Oct 2018. That one has such a bad interest rate and little minimum payment, that many things moved ahead of it in the debt snowball program. That's why it will be so exciting to pay it off on Boxing Day!  I still have debts but far fewer. I was desperate to not have so many. As you can imagine, that was a lot of payments each month.    
    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
